Posted On: - 2009-01-13 22:16:25
Over the course of my career, I have been reviewing a variety of skin care products and cosmetics and I know which ones are worth it and which ones are not. This is not to say that there are skin care products in the market that are completely useless. No legitimate company spends money and launches inferior products. However, some skin care products simply perform better than the others and are deemed as the best.
And now that this year is drawing to a close, let me look back and review the best skin care products of 2008.
Best Cleanser: Obagi C-Cleansing Gel
The cleanser contains potent Vitamin C. It cleans the skin and removes all traces of leftover make-up, oil residues and other impurities. Moreover, Vitamin C conditions the skin and makes it smooth and supple. It makes up for an essential skin care regimen and aids in easy penetration of other active ingredients in other Obagi products.
It works really well with other products of Obagi-C Rx System. But even as a stand alone product, it fares really well!
Best Toner: Obagi Nu-Derm Toner
Again, a superb product by Obagi! A unique combination of natural ingredients and herbs, it tones the skin and restores the intrinsic pH balance. What makes different is the presence of a natural astringent called ‘Alum’ that penetrates the skin surface and boosts cellular function. However, what wins it my vote is its anti-aging properties. Its probably one of the very few toners in the market to grant anti-aging benefits. Not only does it firm the skin and reduce wrinkles and fine lines, it also stimulates the natural production of collagen and elastin fibers within the skin cells.
Best Sunscreen: iS Clinical SPF 20 Powder Sunscreen
It’s the first of its kind powder sunscreen to have hit the skin care products market. The physical UV blockers contain 25% titanium dioxide and 20% zinc oxide and provide broad spectrum sunscreen protection. Its patrons include the Lindsay Lohan… so I need not say more about how popular it is. What makes it the best among other sun blocking products is that translucent and is non-comedogenic. It won’t clog your skin pores.
Best Anti-Aging Product: NeoCutis Bio-Restorative Cream
By far, the best anti-aging product that I have come across! The advantages of NeoCutis Bio Restorative Skin Cream are not overrated. This is a top recommendation for mature, dry or sun damaged skin. I love the scientific data to back up the claims. After 30 days of using the product twice a day the skin is restored, luminous and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles significantly reduced.
Best Eye Cream: NeoCutis Lumiere Bio-Restorative Eye Cream
Bid farewell to puffy eyes and that look tired around the clock. NeoCutis Lumiere Bio-Restorative Eye Cream is the answer to all your eye concerns like fine lines, dark circles, puffiness and dryness. What’s more? You get to see the results within 6 weeks and this is one product that ophthalmologists consider safe to be used on the delicate upper eyes as well.
Best Acne Care Product: iS Clinical Active Serum
iS Clinical is at it again, with its amazing Active Serum that is a one stop answer to all your acne worries. The highly concentrated serum reduces acne and skin pigmentation at the same time reducing existent acne scars.
