I am NOT going to lie. I called up a friend within a week of using this product and told her, "I am not going to make it through the full two week trial I promised to give it."
But I did. And I am still using it. And I have figured out some tweaks to make it work better for me. So if you are trying it out, I wanted to encourage you to tweak and keep at it for two weeks... just to see.
I started the Veráge Skin Care Collection early this month. I was so excited. I have loved everything I have bought from this company and I did not expect to want to return anything. But I was ready to return it. Then I started switching things up.
The Veráge Cleanser is amazing. One little squirt and you can wash your whole face, use plenty of water and it feels like you are washing with soap, except it leaves your skin feeling fantastic.
Even step 2, the Veráge Toner is pretty cool! It sprays. I have to use 3 sprays total, directly on my face, and then wipe my face with a cotton ball. The cotton ball ends up looking dirty, gross! It's really picking up a lot.
Then comes step 3. This is the Veráge Hydrating Serum. I felt like I was coating my face in oil and then when I put the moisturizer over it, I felt shiny and greasy for hours! No putting concealer, minerals, or powders over that! Yuck. But I promised myself 2 weeks.
In that first week I broke out. Bad. I even called the company to see if that was normal and what the steps to returning it was.
Here comes the good stuff...Then I figured out I might as well try to make it work for me... so time to tweak. I did the cleanser as normal, the toner too... but I decided to reduce the serum to less than a full squirt. I still used the lotion when I was doing the regime. I also skip the full program once ever other day and ONLY use the lotion.
I wont write a review on anything I don't like, without clearly telling you I do not like it. But I must tell you, my skin is amazing today! I lost track of the time when I started liking this stuff and I am surely at 3 weeks or more.
DUDE, my pores haven't been so small since I was a teenager! I only broke out that first week. I watched a webinar by my sweet hometown friend Jackie Ritz about Natural Beauty Products. Jackie explained how when we wash with water and soap, we dont remove oil. Oil and water dont mix. But oils can dissolve oils and cleanse the skin. Mind blowing, right?
OK apparently it is true!So I am still using Veráge Skin Care and listening to my skin, much like I would listen to my body when something starts to ache... I let it rest or alter my treatment of it. Too much of a good thing isn't always a good thing, so back off a little and listen. My skin needed less, but is thriving.
