REVIEW: Last year, 2011, starting around this time (late November early December) I started to experience a dreaded and annoying skin condition of hormonal acne. I was getting these huge boils around my chin and red spots scattered on my forehead and sides of my nose. Basically the areas on my face that produced the most oil became irritated and inflamed every 3-4 weeks. It was awful because I never had to deal with acne before, not even as a teenager, and now in my 30’s I looked like a dermatologists worst nightmare! Over the course of 9 months I basically ruined my skin, by trying to clear this hormonal acne with harsh over-the-counter drying products I ended up over-exfoliating and irritating it even more. Then all of a sudden, starting this September 2012 (around 4 months ago) I noticed I didn’t have any acne breakouts, or even a single zit, for a couple weeks, which seemed like an eternity at the time. Then week after week there was nothing, no acne what so ever and my skin was looking great. Now it’s December 11th and I swear to you I haven’t had one single pimple throughout the entire Fall and my skin looks the best it’s ever looked in my life!
I know that I owe this clear & radiant skin I’m enjoying right now to several skincare products that I’ve been using. I won’t name them all right now because I will be reviewing everything separately, but I will say that the products I’m using show that I’ve completely changed my outlook on skincare – and it worked! For instance, I’m using cleansing balms, like Eve Lom’s and cleansers with essential oils like Sunday Riley’s Ceramic Slip – instead of harsh exfoliating cleansers targeting oily/acne prone skin. I’m using face oils like Rodin Olio Lusso, Sunday Riley Juno and my new favorite Sponge Ladi Avocanto Oil. I’m also trying to use more moisturizers that are calming and healing for sensitive skin like Rodial’s Dragon Blood and Sponge Rose & Sage Cream. OK I’ve said too much…I will review each and every product I’ve used and love in the past four months very soon.
The point of this long story is that, although I owe thanks for my new skin to all the products (and more) listed above, It wouldn’t feel right if I didn’t review the cream that kick-started this path to clear skin. When I first noticed my skin looking better and calmer earlier in September, I had just thrown out my empty bottle of VMV Hypoallergenic RE-Everything Cream: Primary Treatment after using every last drop over a 8-week period. Looking back now, I honestly believe that this cream got my skin back on track. It balanced my oil production while calming irritation and correcting any previous damage, allowing all my other products to work better. A complete skin rejuvination! It took me 8 weeks to get through the bottle because the instructions tell you to follow an 8 week plan that gradually builds your allowed usage up to 2 times per day. I followed the instructions exactly and I couldn’t be happier with the results.
Included with the Re-Everything Cream is a pamphlet with detailed instructions for a suggested 8-week application guide (see pictures above), as well as tons of information about the product itself and its’ ingredients. Inside the numerous pamphlet pages, VMV makes many claims, based off clinical tests. I’ve decided to pull two key words from the pages, that I believe accurately describe what Re-Everything Cream did for my skin. Those words are: RENEW + REBUILD
One of the active ingredients, responsible for skin RENEWAL in the cream is unbuffered (undiluted) glycolic acid. I really enjoy products with glycolic acid in it because they effectively breaks down my dead skin, resulting in smoother and youthful skin and without drying it out. Glycolic acid provides micro-dermabrasion, forcing new, younger cells to the surface, and it also enables the skin to absorb moisture better.
What I enjoy most about this cream is how lightweight it is, and specifically how smooth and easy it is to apply. Although it’s lightweight and the texture is more like a liquid then a heavy cream, it’s still not runny or greasy.
The smell is very faint and non-descriptive, but once you massage it onto your face the sweet scents of virgin coconut oil start to come out, and it’s quite yummy! Speaking of coconut oil… the USDA-certified organic virgin coconut oil used in this cream contributes to the REBUILDING of the skin, due to its’ unrivalled moisturization at the cell membrane level. Cream is fully blended-in below:
There’s not much more I can say in this review, because hopefully my long story about dealing with adult acne for the first time and finally getting my skin back on track and balanced, emphasized the fact that this cream can be highly effective if used correctly. It can even change the overall quality of your skin. I would recommend VMV Hypoallergenics Re-Everything Cream: Anti-aging Primary Treatment to people with sensitive skin, who sometimes deal with acne breakouts and who are ready & willing to make a serious change in their skin care routine. If you have the patience to see through all 8 weeks of ‘building up tolerance’, then this cream may be exactly what you’ve been looking for. It will rejuvenate, renew & rebuild your skin! It helped me restore & balance my sensitive skin and I’d have no reservations about using it again and again and again…
