A couple months ago, I posted about my experience at Glen Ivy Day Spa in Corona, CA. The very last treatment I got on the day of my visit was a facial, where it was brought to my attention that my dry skin issues stemmed from inadequate water consumption. When the esthetician walked me out of my appointment, she took me to the salon shop where I purchased a few of the products she suggested for taking care of my face. Normally, I don’t swear by a line of products when it comes to cosmetics or beauty. I’ve found in the past that many brands release one item that’s golden, but the rest don’t work for me. If I like your shampoo, I probably won’t like your conditioner. One face wash works great, but the moisturizer and toner from the same company don’t do it for me. Thankfully, Primavera’s line meets all of my skin care needs.
The biggest problem I was having, and that most people with skin issues have, is that I wasn’t completely cleaning my skin with each wash of my face. The products I was using in the past were wiping things from the surface, but really cleansing my pores and leaving my skin squeaky? Not so much. This is the first product I’ve used where I can actually see the cleanliness of my pores after I rinse it off.
Something else that I like is that these products are made from primarily natural ingredients – items like chamomile, peppermint, aloe, and lavender. There are other ingredients, too, but comparing the labels to my old products didn’t show as many components plucked from nature. Because I use items from Primavera’s “Balancing” line, mostly, they’ve helped to even out my skin’s tone, and reduce oiliness. Couple this with all of the water I’ve been drinking, and my skin’s texture is the best it’s been in a while.
The products work well, so I don’t need a lot of them to get the job done. In the words of Ms. Jessica Simpson, “Just a little dab” is really all it takes. The items I bought back in June are not even close to being depleted yet, which is reassuring for me, since each bottle runs about $28.00.
If you’re looking for a new line of skin care products to try, I recommend giving Primavera a look. There’s a reason they’re sold in spas. The line also sells products such as overnight masks, moisturizers, and eye creams, but I didn’t go for the entire shebang when I purchased. Perhaps I will in the future. Their label and website indicate that they do not test on animals, which is a plus. Primavera is also based out of Germany, and anyone who has met me, seen my car, or met my husband, knows how much I like things that are German. 🙂
