Skincueticals Review


Don't know if many of you guys are familiar with the skincueticals line. If your not then its a cosmecuetical line.
I tried some of their products recently so I thought I would do a post on the products I used and what I would recommend. Its pretty pricey so I believe its great to have some information about the products before you head out and buy it.

Here is a list of skincuetical skincare products I tried:


  • Clarifying Clay Mask


  • Foaming Cleanser


  • Retinol 0.5


  • Phloretin CF (skin serum)


  • Serum 15 AOX+


  • Body Polish

Clarifying Clay Masque (rating 6/10)

This mask is supposed to cleanse your pores and refine your skin. The results thus far have not been too dissimilar to your drug store brand. So I say try those first.


Foaming Cleanser (rating 6.5/10)

I am going to start by saying that I'm not a fan of foaming cleansers as I don't feel like they cleanse the skin properly, so I was never going to love this product. However, this cleanser did not overly dry my skin or cause irritation so I liked that. The biggest drawback was that the formula did not work with my clarisonic, so I had to lather up normally (that's not a problem, but I want to make use of my clarisonic).

If you like foaming cleansers than you may like this one.


Retinol 0.5 (rating 9/10)

I tried a small sample of this product and after two days I saw great results. This product is one of the best skincare products I have ever tried!
This product made my skin less congested, almost completely clear, smooth and soft. After, one week it was clear and the best I had ever seen it!

Make sure you read the directions for this one as retinol is very strong.


Phloretin and the Serum 15 AOX - Have only used a few times. I will do a proper review when I have used the product longer


Body Polish (Rating 5/10)

Nice scrub however, it's very pricey. I would try your drug store alternatives first.

If you are looking for a luxury scrub and don't mind spending extra. I would suggest trying the Laura Mercier body scrub. It has very nice packaging and smells delicious.

..oh yes I made my new logo , I am obsessed with collages so all my fashion magazines are destroyed by me : ) I love Polyvore but I find I can be more creative when I make them manual and put my own drawings as well ..
