New, Natural Skincare Line By Ultra Violet

 

The older I get, the more I wish I had taken better care of my skin growing up. I never wore sunscreen or moisturizer. I also would sleep without washing my face when I was a teen (I slept with makeup on!). If I could go back in time, taking better care of myself and my body/face would be the first thing I’d do. That is no exaggeration either.

I am grateful that I get to review a variety of beauty products. It’s a fabulous way to learn about new brands and products that I might not otherwise learn about. Such is the case with the brand Ultra Violet. I have never heard of them up until now. When I think “Ultra Violet,” I think movies or the sun.

The brand recently introduced a new product to their product line – Formula 28 Perfector.

Here is some additional information about the brand and their new product.

Founder Marci Malbrough, an NCEA certified Master Esthetician, took her twenty years of knowledge of techniques, products, and equipment to create formulas that combat aging and acneic skin with the Ultra Violet Skincare Line.  With the importance of feeling confident every day, the custom designed skincare products combine the wisdom of nature with the innovation and power of science. 

Ultra Violet Advanced Skincare and Repair is focused on providing impeccable services and products with the highest levels of customer satisfaction.  Using bio-effective ingredients such as multi-functional antioxidants, phytonutrients, clinically-tested peptides, and botanicals, all products offer gentle, drug-free alternatives to help women achieve great-looking skin at any age.

Ultra Violet’s Formula 28 Perfector is the powerhouse leading their Accelerator collection.  This serum is made WITHOUT parabens, sulfates, and phthalates and contains powerful ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, silver ear mushroom, and trehalose, whose water binding properties rehydrate skin at a rapid rate.

  • Diminishes visible imperfections within days to weeks
  • Normalizes red or yellow skin tones within two to four weeks
  • Speeds skin’s recovery from laser, resurfacing and other procedures
  • Helps clear breakouts within 48 hours, discourages future problems
  • Controls and limits skin’s adverse reaction to stress
  • Rapidly improves hydration and the appearance of surface lines. 
  • Corrects a variety of skin conditions and problems, displaying visible results within 24-hours to several weeks.

I was sent the product to review. I’ve been using the product every day for the past five or six weeks. I use it twice a day (AM and PM). I wanted to make sure I got the most out of this product.

This product is a clear, lightweight gel-like product. A little bit goes a long way. You don’t need to slather it on your face. Just a squirt or two is enough.

Formula 28 Perfector glides across your skin. It’s a really nice feeling. It almost has a bit of a cooling effect. I say that because I put this on as soon as I wash my face. Sometimes my skin cleanser makes my face feel “raw,” for lack of a better description. The moment I apply Formula 28, my skin feels soothed and cooled down. I know, I need a new face wash. Until I get another one, Formula 28 has been a God send to help my face feel calm and soothed.

When it comes to moisturizing your skin, this product does that and more. I have to use a sunscreen, so I apply a small amount of a moisturizer with SPF in it. I know how that products makes my skin feel. What I feel has nothing to do with that product, It’s 100% Formula 28.

As far as what the product is meant to do.

I still see imperfections on my skin, but they are not as obvious as they were prior to Formula 28 Perfector.

My skin is not as red as it usually is. I still have a pink’ish tone to my skin, but that is fine with me.

I don’t have breakouts, so I cannot comment on how well the product works on that. I also have not had facial surgery, so I don’t know how the product effects the healing process.

I do stress out (a lot). I don’t think stress effects my skin (or maybe it does). As far as that is concerned, I haven’t noticed a difference because I don’t know what stressed out skin is suppose to look like.

It does improve hydration – and very much so. Since using the product I have not experienced any dry patches, which I sometimes get. My face feels smooth, soft and well hydrated.

I still see fine lines. I was hoping they might disappear, but so far they haven’t.

I think my face looks “fresh” and healthy. I don’t look drab and dull (thankfully). I can also leave our home without any make up and NOT feel embarrassed by it. During the summer months, I am not a fan of wearing anything more than some mascara and eye liner. I am embarrassed to have people see my dry, dull and drag (old lady!) looking complexion. I can honestly say it’s been weeks since I’ve wore anything on my face. Occasionally my checks look a bit too pink, but aside from that, my skin looks good. I’m not embarrassed to be seen with “naked” (make up free) skin.

Formula 28 Protector is a fabulous product. I might not be able to see a difference in every area that it treats, but from what I have experienced, I love this product. It’s one of those review products that I would continue to buy again and again (if it was in my budget).
