Do you ever feel like you are just spending a crazy amount of money trying skin care product after skin care product? It feels like so much trial and error and nothing seems to fully do what we want it to do. We take recommendations, visit doctors, and take bloggers advise. We switch products every time we go to buy, and yet we never seem to get the glow, or reduce the lines, or get rid of pimples as effectively as we wish. I am just a crazy sensitive individual in general, but especially when it comes to my face. I have been to every dermatologist in Dallas and still nothing worked. I have had a decent amount of breakouts in my lifetime along with eczema, dry skin, and sensitivity. Treating breakouts with products that dry out your skin would worsen my eczema, and cause horrible flakiness due to my dryness. Well coming from someone who has had ever issue imaginable, and has the most sensitive skin ever (even “sensitive” products are too harsh for me), I bring you your life savor.
I honestly thought all hope was lost until I was googling estheticians in Dallas before my wedding. I knew I need to be aggressive to get my skin “wedding ready”. I was sitting in a salon chair getting my hair colored when my colorist saw that I was on Renee Rouleau’s website. She mentioned that she got her facials through the Renee Rouleau spa and that they have the best products. That was all I needed to hear to try them out.
I dove all in with my first facial and bought the products. I am NEVER the girl to get caught up in stuff like this or drop $300 on skin care, but I was desperate. And to this day, I am so glad I did. All of the products use pure ingredients with minimal chemicals (acne treatments and such have a few for maximum effort), and she has dedicated her research to developing 9 different skin types. You can visit a specialist in the spa or take the skin quiz online. She also houses over 1000+ blog posts dedicated to anything from wedding skin emergencies to how alcohol affects your skin to skin care trends that do more harm than good. Plus you know you can trust these posts because all of these posts and tips are backed up by testings and research.
After you find your skin type, there is still so much customization to be completed. You won’t ever use every product available within your skin type, just the ones that will help you in your needs. You can use anything from a 3 step to a 7 step process and even the 7 steps only takes about 5 minutes. I am a Skin Type 4 and currently use about 6 products on a 4-5 step basis. My facialist customized my routine and help me stay within a budget to still get the results I wanted. Here is my routine:
- Face Wash: same in the morning and at night
- Face Toner: same in the morning and at night
- Serum: only at night and I switch between this one and this one every other night. The second one is actually from a different skin type, but I needed a more aggressive spot treatment for my pimples. This one is serious a miracle worker.
- Moisturizer: this one in the morning and this one at night
I truly hope you give these products a try. Not one person I know who has tried this line has ever turned back.
