I'm one of those people who sticks with products that they love. I've been using the same foundation for 10 years!!! About 6 months ago, I discovered TULA, a skin care line that uses probiotics. I started off using their hydrating day and night cream, and the revitalizing eye cream. I loved them both so much that I jumped on board with a bunch more TULA products about 2 months ago.
TULA was created with the thought that the same ingredients that are good for your internal health must also be good for your skin! They use probiotics as the foundation of the line. They explain; "these good bacteria that calm your stomach are also clinically proven to help soothe and protect your skin". They use different probiotics to improve the smoothness of skin, hydration, elasticity, wrinkle reduction, clarity, redness reduction, immunity defense and protection... sounds pretty perfect, right!? I've linked all the products I use below (you'll also find a discount code for them at the bottom of this post) but I also wanted to share with you some tips on when to use/how much to use them and share the reasons I love these products! My skin has seriously been the best it's been in years since I started using these products, I promise!
The Illuminating Face Serum is a must. You apply it before you apply your moisturizer. It gives your skin that glow that we all search for. If you're not into the 'dewy' look, you can switch off days using the serum and a moisturizer instead applying the serum before your moisturizer every day.
The Exfoliating Treatment Mask is one of my favorite products. It's great for evening skin tone and helping to clear acne scars. This should be used 2-3 times a week. It gently exfoliates and does a great deep cleaning of the skin. You can also use it as a spot treatment!
The Purifying Cleanser is the perfect lightweight, gentle cleanser. It removes makeup and cleans your pores. I generally do a double cleanse to make sure all my makeup is removed and my skin gets thoroughly cleansed. I also love the feel and smell of this cleanser. It's soft and fresh and gets nice and sudsy when you apply it.
The Multi Spectrum Overnight Skin Rescue Treatment is arguably my favorite product I've ever used. It's TULA's most potent formula and uses 4 different probiotics which work to shrink pore size, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, increase cell turnover, and improve skin’s elasticity. I mean.... what could be better!? I use this moisturizer every night. It deeply hydrates your skin as you sleep. If you're extra dry you can also use it during the day.
The Multi Spectrum Eye Renewal Serum is pretty much what every woman dreams of... If you don't have dark circles of puffy eyes, you can skip this part and consider yourself lucky! This serum helps to correct dark circles, crow’s feet, and puffiness. It's infused with peptides, caffeine, and a blend of probiotics, to keep you looking bright-eyed and refreshed. The metal applicator helps to cool the eye area which also helps makes your eyes feel more refreshed. You can store this in the fridge too to make it cooling and even more refreshing! I use this every night. Make sure to apply a majority of the cream below your eyes and just a light sweep on the top lid.
The Urban Defense Hydrating Mist protects against environmental toxins that you run into in every day life. This mist is anti-inflammatory and uses rose water, coconut water, and hyaluronic acid help to calm skin and immediately boost hydration. I apply this first thing before my moisturizer. You can also put it on after you apply your makeup to help it set.
If you have any questions about these products or my skin care routine in general, feel free to leave them in the comments. I'd be happy to answer them!
