So it’s been 7 days since I’ve received and started using RX for brown skin. I just washed my face and decided to take my day 7 pics. While I was using it, I thought that my skin looked less dull and more alive. Since it has only been 7 days, there isn’t much difference. I noticed that some parts of my skin looked better, whereas other parts (such as around my chin) seemed to perhaps be more broken out. I do understand that often times skin does get slightly worse before getting better when started out a new skin care regime, so I remain optimistic for even greater results.
As I may or may not have stated, this skin care line isn’t available in Canada for purchase so I ordered it from Sephora via the internet. My sister went to Las Vegas recently and bought me an SPF 15 Cream which is also from the rx for brown skin care line, so I’ve also been using that in conjunction with the other products since last week wednesday (5 days).
You’ll also notice that my skin looks a little red/pink in the Day 7 pictures. The moisturizer has Salicylic acid in it which would be the reason my skin is red, and also the reason that my skin feels tingly after I put the lotion on. It may also be the fact that I put a small dot of the moisturizer in my hand and also a small dot of the spf cream in my hand, blend them together, then apply it to my face. Perhaps the combination of both is what is causing the redness and the tingling. The redness goes down pretty quickly. I’m also still using tazorac on my skin in the evening time after washing and moisturizing.
I’ve seen at least 3 different dermatologists in my lifetime and none of them have ever asked me to use a toner. In fact, one told me that it simply wasn’t necessary. At the same time, his recommendations were the least effective for me. At any rate, I at first thought that I would use the entire rx skin care regime as directed, however I’d only use the toner once a day. I then decided against it. If I’m going to give an accurate portrayal of my experiences with this skin care line, I feel that it is important to utlize the product as directed.
I love the skin cleanser. I really like the feeling of using a foaming face wash that actually lathers up. It makes my skin feel really clean without making it feel dry or tight. I’ve also noticed a slight reduction in the oil slick that is my skin by mid day. It’s still a bit oily, but not nearly as oily as before. I’ve especially noticed that my skin gets super oily after a few hours of applying makeup, but that has subsided as well. I saw a picture of myself with make up on while in a club this past Saturday and my skin did not look super shiny as it normally would in such a picture…especially in a hot club!
So far so good. I’ll take another set of pictures and put them up next week. Check out the pictures below:
