It's Testimonial Tuesday! This week we feature a recent blogger review of our line by MyStyleSpot's Cindy Batchelor. Here's is what she had to say about her experience with our products and customized regimen:
Vivant Skincare REVIEW
I recently got to try the Vivant Skincare line out and was so thrilled as I've heard so many good things about this brand! Vivant Skincare has been in the Biz for over 40 years and offers a great selection of wonderful skin care products for every skincare need!
I was thrilled to get my products in the mail, and a new skincare regimen that was super easy to follow. I started out with the Mandelic Acid 3-in-1 Wash designed to treat Acne, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines.
I was nervous to put my Proactiv away while trying out this line, I won't lie. I held onto it for the first few days and then finally put it away as I could see the combination of both products was drying out my skin.
Once I started with the Face wash, every other day to start with, then moved to everyday, and up to twice a day after the first week, I started to really notice a difference. For one, I definently did not need the Proactiv! My skin was clearing up just fine with the use of this face wash. While the acne on my face (mostly my cheeks) has been chilling out a little anyway, where I noticed the biggest difference, was on my body. This wash can be used as a face wash, body wash, scalp acne treatment, and as a shaving cream!
While I usually have a few zits on my chest and neck area, I had no zits on my body while using this product! I didn't notice any! Woohoo! I thought it was interesting that this could be used as a shaving cream, great for those prone to in-growns, so I decided to try it out. The wash is like a regular face wash gel, so I was unsure it would work while shaving, but it did a fantastic job! My razor glided across my skin and no nicks, and most importantly, no in-growns! I got a nice, super smooth, close shave while using my Mandelic Acid face wash on my body as a cleanser AND as a shaving cream!
For my day routine, I used the Normalizing Tonic after cleansing, and the Day Treatment Lotion with Spf 15. I loved using the Tonic and loved seeing the extra dirt and oil I would sometimes see after using it. It really seemed to bring balance to my skin.
The Day Treatment lotion is a nice lotion that isn't too thick for being an SPF. It has Zinc Peptides and Aloe to help reduce inflamed skin from Acne and Rosacea.
For my night routine I used the Derm-A-Renew after cleansing one day, and then the Totaloe Calming and Hydrating gel every other day, after cleansing. I noticed my skin would be a little pink after first starting these products, but it quickly went away after a few uses.
The Derm-A-Renew is formulated with Vitamin A and gentle peptides to help minimize the appearance of fine lines, as well as smooth skin texture, and help reduce acne.
The Totaloe Calming and Hydrating Gel is an oil-free moisturizer used to calm acne, rosacea, and sunburned skin.
My skin seemed to like these products and my acne didn't! Yay! The acne cleared up completely on my body and cleared up a bit on my face as well. Where I noticed the biggest difference was my sun spots and acne scars lightening up.
Here is a before picture so you can get an idea.
And Here is the after picture. While the lighting isn't the best, you can see that some of the acne scars have lightened up quite a bit, and there are fewer zits too! The zit on the neck is gone too! like I said, no sign of acne anywhere else on my body since I started using the Mandelic 3-in-1 Wash as a body wash. I think my skin looks a little tighter too.
