A New Year - A New Skin Care Regime With @DermaClara

HAPPY NEW YEAR GUYS!!

All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting this review/feature and my feelings nor results.

Can you guys believe it's 2017?  Seriously, the older I get, the quicker the years go by.  It's evident by watching my kids grow up (and I haven't figured out how to stop that process from happening or slowing down a bit) and by seeing the wrinkles grow on my face.  HA!  But seriously, I've been noticing a lot of fine lines and wrinkles on my face that weren't there in previous years.  Maybe I can chalk it up to stress (I've had my fair share in the past few years), or maybe it's from to much smiling (my old go-to excuse), or most of all, from the lack of a consistent skincare routine.

When DermaClara contacted me to try out their skincare line, I was super curious to see if their line, which offers a 60 day money back guarantee, could produce some amazing results on my mildly aging skin.
This huge kit arrived right before Christmas, with all these separately packaged products and I was honestly a bit overwhelmed by the process of it all.  Part of the reason I have signs of aging on my skin is because I have never consistently stuck to a skincare line or routine.  It's just a lot...to get up in the morning, scrub & cleanse my face, tone, moisturize, apply makeup...and then in the evening...start all over again.  To add, on top of it, applying silicone like products (which look pretty awkward) on my face, where the wrinkles are the worst and leave them for up to 8 hours was just a lot to consider as a daily process for my skin.  But...then I had to think about it, do I really want to start looking my age (or even older) than I am?   NOPE!  Time to do something about this aging process and reverse the effects if I can!

Do I compromise a small bit of my time & effort to put it towards finally caring for my skin?
ABSOLUTELY!!  It's Time!

So I decided...this is it...I'm going to use this kit and use it right and see what really happens.  So I started...and can't wait to continue to see results over the 2017 year!
The first step is the cleansing of my skin.  This is very important and a step that I typically skip in my normal skincare routine (because I really don't have one).  I used the Claraprep Purify Hydrating Creame Cleanser and the gentle Silicone Skin Exfoliator.  I also received the Clarapulse Pore-Refining Massaging Device, but I'll admit that using it was not as easy or convenient as the skin exfoliator.  I also like that it has a suction cup to hang dry from the mirror.  This cleanser leaves my skin feeling clean and tingly.  It's refreshing for my skin.  Plus, with the exfoliator, I feel like it's wiping away dead skin cells that collect on my face.  AWESOME!
The next step is using Claraline Peptide-Infused Serum (for day & night) and the Claratone Stimulating Serum Applicator (which looks like a little mirror that vibrates).  My skin doesn't feel much different after applying the serum, but I have a feeling it's working anyway.  Then to follow up with the Clarasome Radiance Restoring Moisturizer.  This moisturizer is thick, creamy and leaves my skin feeling baby butt soft.  Seriously...this moisturizer is pretty awesome & nourishing to my skin.  
Another step is the Clarafuse Anti-aging pads.  I got both the ones for the face and the chest, but still have not used the chest ones.  The ones for the face are applied to the problem areas: my crows feet, smile wrinkles and then the main scowl wrinkles on my forehead.  I am not able to wear these when I am sleeping (I tried), but have managed to wear them for an hour or two at a time during the day.  It does appear to help minimize the wrinkles when they are taken off...but it's not anything miraculous YET.  Maybe I'm not leaving them on long enough?  If I could sleep with them on, I would...and maybe then I would see some dramatic results...but sleep doesn't come when I have silicone pads all over my face.
And we can't forget about the lips.  I mean, plump and pretty lips are all the rave right now, right?  Girls are doing crazy things for plumper & fuller lips.  Me personally, I am pleased with my lips, as is, but it never hurts to keep them moisturized and shiny.  I will admit, the Claralips product didn't do any PLUMPING to my lips.  It doesn't tingle or in any way PLUMP my lips...but it does keep them plenty moisturized and shiny when I wear the product.
OVERALL (the pictures above are my afters - using the product for a few weeks consistently)...my experience with the DermaClara products has been positive.  My skin feels moisturized and looks great.  As far as diminishing my wrinkles, I think I need to use the Clarafuse pads more often, because I think they are what really helps rid me of the fine lines and wrinkles.  Overall, through the past couple weeks of using these products, I have not seen any MAJOR changes to the fine lines and wrinkles on my face, but my skin does feel way more nourished, clean and moisturized.  The other products (cleanser, serum, moisturizer, etc.) are for daily maintenance and care of my skin...which I need.  I'm thankful to have been born with some decently clear skin (as far as acne and blemishes), but I still need to be preventative as the aging process continues.

I WILL NOT GIVE UP!   I will be consistent & I will continue using this DermaClara product for the full 60 days and we'll see if I really do see AMAZINGLY OBVIOUS results!
