If you have followed me for any length of time you’ve likely heard me mention PCA SKIN before. Hands down they are my absolute favorite skin care brands. PCA SKIN® has been and continues to be a trusted innovator in the development of highly effective professional treatments and daily care products. One of my favorite things about PCA SKIN is that their customer team is made up of licensed aestheticians who are always ready to help you with any skin health, product or business questions.
Jamie from Makeup Life Love and I will be hosting a bi-weekly series where we do a deep dive into skincare brands and share our favorite products from each brand. I feel like this series will give you the best look at each brand and make it easy for you to find products that will work for you. I have dry skin that’s prone to redness and Jamie has combo to oily skin that is sometimes acne prone! So you can see products that work for both of our skin types. We both felt like it was only right to launch this series with PCA SKIN because it’s a favorite for us both. Between the two of us, we get so many questions on a lot of the same brands so we are going to be teaming up on this series to share not only our faves but also a GIVEAWAY happening over on Instagram with some of our favorite products from the brand as well.
DUAL ACTION REDNESS – Reduce redness and sensitivity while improving the skin’s barrier function with this powerful corrective that provides instant and long-term relief from discomfort. Not only is this my favorite PCA SKIN product but it’s hands down my favorite skin care product of all time. If you struggle with redness or rosacea at all, this product will work overtime to clear your redness and treat it vs just cover it. I know that it’s a bit expensive but it’s truly worth it.
MAKEUP, LIFE AND LOVE A+ ANTI-AGERS – “The products in this kit are formulated with the right ingredients to help prevent, protect and hydrate the skin effectively to help you maintain your youthful complexion.”–Jamie Lewis of Makeup, Life and Love. This is the perfect kit to grab if you want to try out PCA SKIN. Plus Jamie hand-picked all the products and as my own personal skincare guru, you know it’s good! Use the code JAMIE18 – spend $150 get a free collagen hydrator!
RETINOL TREATMENT FOR SENSITIVE SKIN – This retinol specifically formulated for sensitive skin reduces redness and signs of aging, without causing irritation. This is what I used to jump onto the retinol train, with retinol sometimes comes a purge where your skin will dry out and flake. To avoid that I chose to start with this one since it’s formulated for sensitive skin.
APRES’ PEEL HYDRATING BALM – A soothing moisturizer that hydrates while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This is the perfect summertime moisturizer. It goes on thick but it really absorbs super well into your skin.
HYALURONIC ACID LIP BOOSTER – An advanced lip product that instantly moisturizes while improving long-term lip volume, hydration, and softness. This is the newest PCA SKIN product that I have tried and when I tell you it has changed the life of my lips, I mean it. It’s so good. For chapped lips, in general, it’s the bomb. But it also works to reduce the signs of aging around your lips, so yay!
SHEER TINT SPF 45 – This universally tinted, water-resistant sunscreen provides sheer protection with an antioxidant boost. This stuff is amazing. It’s perfect for summer when you’re going for that no makeup makeup look. You get the sun protection you need and also a tiny bit of color to even things out. So you can go ahead and skip the foundation.
HYDRATING MASK – An at-home hydrating mask with an advanced blend of soothing ingredients and botanicals that reduce irritation and infuse the skin with hydration. One of my FAVORITE things to do with this mask is to wear it and go to bed. If you have dry skin, and you need a reset, you need this mask.
IDEAL COMPLEX EYE GEL – Available in two textures, this cutting-edge eye gel strengthens, firms and lifts the skin around the entire eye area, including the eyelid. Its light gel texture is excellent for all skin types. I reach for the gel vs the cream because it just feels so much better under my eye. PRO TIP: keep this in the fridge!
EXLINEA – This peptide spot treatment serum minimizes the appearance of expression lines and hydrates, smooths, and firms aging skin. This is BOTOX IN A BOTTLE. I love using this with my GloPro. You can also use it if you get Botox to prolong the life of your botox.
CLINICALM – A soothing therapeutic treatment with maximum strength 1% hydrocortisone to soothe and provide temporary relief of itching and irritation. If you have ANY type of itch or reaction ever, you need this. Mosquito bites? THIS WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE. I originally had this after my chemical peel but I bought the full size because it’s the best thing ever in life.
HYDRALUXE – This rich, luxurious moisturizer deeply hydrates the skin while providing anti-aging benefits. This is for my dry girls who can’t find relief. You need this in your life. This moisturizer is great for all skin types.
C&E STRENGTH – This antioxidant formulation combines pure vitamin C and pure vitamin E to strengthen skin, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I use this every morning and it’s my fave Vitamin C on the market!
CREAMY CLEANSER – This gentle, hydrating cleanser effectively removes dirt, debris, and makeup without stripping the skin of necessary moisture. This is one of the only cleansers I can count on to remove my makeup while also cleansing my freaking face. Sign me up forever.
