A month ago, I decided to use my magnifying mirror to closely examine my face! Big mistake! My skin was dry, flaky and rough. Whether I’m chasing the kids under the hot summer sun in July or building snow forts in the dead of winter, my face seems to take the brunt of the elements. Each season, brings about a new set of harsh conditions that leave my skin dry and cracking; and Winter is the worse! The dry air of winter pulls moisture out of my skin causes my skin to flake and peel. The result in a decrease of skin cells causes my skin to loose more oil and water. This creates a perpetual circle of oil and water loss to skin flaking, causing dry, irritated skin. When my skin is dry, I try to moisturize as often as possible. Unfortunately, I have sensitive skin and large pores. The more I moisturize, the more my pores clog and the more I break out.
When I was offered the opportunity to test Bio-Scriptives Repiderm, I was a little hesitant. I was worried that I might have an allergic reaction or increase my breakouts. I decided to give it a shot as I have not found a product that would clear up my blemishes. I was very impressed when I read that the ingredients and found out that it contained 16 herbal extracts and essential oils. Being a busy mom of three, I don’t have a lot of time for facial care. I love that Bio-Scriptives Repiderm works as a single, standalone product, rather than a multi step process. Bio Scripitives researchers understand the function of the skin and its protective properties and have created a line of skin care products best suited to protect the skin based on this knowledge.
When my first bottle of Bio-Scriptives Repiderm, I couldn’t have been more thrilled. I woke up that morning with a huge red blemish on the tip of my nose. Being the end of December my husband asked it Iwas guiding Santa’s sleigh this year. What a rotten time to have a blemish! In my family, Christmas is a time that many, many, many photos are taken and my new ‘friend’ was not something I wanted to remember.
The directions for Bio-Scriptives Repiderm skin care is very simple and easily fit in my cleansing routine:
1. Thoroughly clean the skin on your face and neck
2. Pat dry
3. Apply Bio-Scriptives Repiderm in a thin layer over the entire affected area
4, Start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily as needed or as directed by a doctor. Reduce application to once a day or every other day when skin begins to clear.
*If going outside, apply sunscreen after using this product.
After following the directions, I noticed an immediate change. Within 10 minutes of using the Bio-Scriptives Repiderm cream, the pressure of my blemish subsided and within an hour the presence of the blemish had significantly decreased. I was thrilled. Within 2 days the blemish was complete gone and that was with only one application a day. I continued to use the Bio-Scriptives Repiderm cream for 3 weeks and I noticed a big improvement in my skin. Not only did the frequency and severity of my blemishes decrease, but my skin felt softer and smoother. It was well hydrated and able to combat winter dryness. The only thing I wasn’t crazy about with Bio-Scriptives Repiderm was the smell of the cream. It had a herbal, medicinal smell, whereas I tend to favour fruity or flowery smelling moisturizing creams. The results I achieved getting rid of the blemishes and the improvement in my overall skin, outweighted this minor flaw and I will continue to use this product in my nightly cleansing routine.
