Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Sometimes life gets too busy to make the time to go get a professional facial, but that doesn't mean that you should deprive yourself of an at-home spa experience. Lately, I have been indulging in a super easy 4-step facial courtesy of the truly fabulous products from HydroPeptide. I begin with their HydroPeptide Anti-Wrinkle Polish & Plump Peel Two Step System and then follow with the HydroPeptide Soothing Serum and then finish off with the FACE LIFT Advanced Ultra-Light Moisturizer. I like to do it at night before I go to bed, and when I wake up my skin looks and feels absolutely amazing. The Polish & Plump Peel removes all of my dead skin cells and pulps the skin, the Soothing Serum hydrates and calms the skin, and the Face Lift Advanced Ultra-Light Moisturizer replenishes the moisture levels in my skin and plumps and lifts. My skin feels soft as a baby's bottom, at it is hydrated, balanced and utterly luminous. Each time that I use these 4 products together, people comment on how gorgeous and flawless my skin looks.

HydroPeptide Anti-Wrinkle Polish & Plump Peel Two Step System ($78.00 from HydroPepetide, Nordstrom, Dermstore and SkinStore,)

According to HydroPeptide,

Anti-Wrinkle Polish & Plump Peel is just what you need to brighten your complexion – along with your spirits – and keep you glowing all season long.

Anti-Wrinkle Polish & Plump Peel is a gentle, yet effective, two-step peel formulated to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles while instantly illuminating the skin by delivering the benefits of microdermabrasion with zero downtime. A moisture-binding peptide rich in protein increases moisture retention, elasticity and nourishment while improving skin’s Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF). Plumping and relaxing peptides minimize wrinkle depth & appearance by boosting collagen production. Additionally, oxygenating crystals exfoliate, brighten and speed cell renewal while vitamin C multi-tasks to protect skin from future wrinkles and mottled pigmentation.

Instantly receive the benefits of a gentle microdermabrasion from a light chemical peel and a pampering facial in just two easy steps. See smoother, brighter and healthier looking skin after just one treatment while also enhancing the penetration of active plumping ingredients. With the polish and plump peel, skin does not flake or require any downtime. The two-step regimen can also be used to minimize acne scars, nourish aging hands, dry feet and elbows, and to reduce the appearance of stretch marks.

Vitamin C Crystals - Improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles while instantly illuminating the skin with vitamin C crystals that deliver the benefits of microdermabrasion with zero downtime.
Plumping Peptides, Vitamin C - Continue your skin transformation with this activating gel that will leave skin smoother and youthfully plump.

Peel 2:
 - 6 peptides including Plumping Peptides, a Relaxing Peptide, Moisture-Binding Peptide and Hydration Peptide offer superior anti-aging properties including visible wrinkle reduction, improved skin elasticity and increased hydration after exfoliation.

I was initially shocked by the results from this two-step peel, but have grown accustomed by the astonishing results. The efficacy is matched by its forgiving and gentle treatment of the skin. It is astounding that it is as gentle as it is, and yet dramatically removes dead skin cells. My skin always feels silky soft after I remove the peel, and my skin is perfectly prepped to receive my serums and moisturizers after use.

Immediately following the 2-step peel, I apply the HydroPeptide Soothing Serum ($130.00 for 1 oz. from HydroPeptide, NordstromSkinStore, Dermstore and Amazon). It is designed to reduce redness and calm down irritated inflamed skin. It is the perfect post-peel product.

According to HydroPeptide,

Calming + Anti-Redness Peptides, Detoxifying Botanical Stem Cell, Arnica - Formulated with calming peptides and a botanical stem cell that reduces the appearance of redness while comforting sensitive or irritated skin.  Helps to strengthen skin's natural defense systems, restore hydration and promote rapid recovery from skin resurfacing procedures.

Packed with peptides, antioxidants and other natural ingredients, you’ll be able to repair any damage done from the summer sun, as well as give it the hydration it needs, for a flawless transition into fall.
If you had a little too much fun in the sun, soothe the lingering effects of a burn with Soothing Serum: Redness Repair & Relief. This two-in-one anti-redness and anti-aging serum is formulated with 6 peptides, a redness reducing botanical stem cell and blueberry extract for collagen support. An anti-redness peptide minimizes the look of facial redness while an anti-inflammatory peptide reduces UVB-induced inflammation and soothes irritated skin. Also, a detoxifying stem cell restores the skin’s own defenses and minimizes redness, along with a blueberry extract that enhances skin’s elasticity and smooths texture by delaying collagen breakdown.

This is the perfect accompaniment to an at-home peel, but it also is a very soothing serum that calms irritated skin, or skin that was overexposed to the sun. It immediately calms and soothes the skin in no time at all. The antioxidant rich formula is healing, hydrating and obsession-worthy! I won't be without this soothing elixir, ever!

FORMULA FEATURES:
 - 6 Peptides including Volumizing Peptides, Hydration Peptide, Anti-Redness Peptide, Sensitivity-Neutralizing Peptide and Preservative Peptides for superior anti-aging and skin soothing results.

 - Arnica improves recovery and repair.

  7. This range sounds brilliant. At home treatments are better for me because of my terribly acne-prone skin which will not take kindly to spa treatments.
