๐ŸŒตSkinBetter AltoDefense Serum ๐ŸŒต Does it live up to the hype? Do you need it?
This is one those products that had me very confused from the get go. Truth be told, even 2-3 weeks into using it, I was still researching exactly what it was doing.
It's a highly complex product that offers A LOT but I had to rearrange my skincare routines somewhat while I used this product and I found that a little tough, but any questions about how and what I rearranged can be asked later.
AltoDefense is a workhorse product with with 19 different antioxidants to provide your skin with 360 degree support against free radical damage.
Free radical damage is real and hard to avoid. It's the cause of hyperpigmentation, inflammation, breakdown of collagen & elastin, premature ageing and so much more. 
Prior to AltoDefense my antioxidant usage included vitamin C, vitamin A (retinol) Zo Skinhealth Daily Power Defense (possibly my favourite product ever) and more recently NIOD SDSM2, a product I'm not personally convinced of.
I wasn't using anything that offered nearly the coverage that this product does.
Just to name a few ingredients that this beast of a product provides: vitamin c, vitamin e, co-enzyme Q10, grape seed extract, coffee, green tea, superoxide dismutase, cocoa, turmeric and more. As you can see, it starts to eliminate the need for a mist like NIOD or a single product featuring one antioxidant ingredient (bar retinol and the big antioxidants, I'm talking SDSM, co-enzyme Q10 toners etc).
Like other SkinBetter products I've tried, results are predictably slow, however I'll take slow and steady any day over a quick fix that ends in failure.
If this does live up to it claims, it should start to improve the fine lines (it says wrinkles but thankfully I'm not there yet). For rosacea sufferers it claims to reduce redness. 
It's a thin creamy serum, similar to Good Genes (maybe runnier), no fragrance whatsoever and it absorbs beautifully into the skin.
It's designed for am/pm use to give 24 hour coverage from oxidative stress and I am comforted by the fact I have a blanket of protection.continued in notes...

DAY 17 SKIN-VESTMENT.
#CultBeautySkinCareChallenge.
Hands down the best thing I do for my skin (and my mind) is getting professional facials, peels, microneedling etc.
This is where my money is best spent and I've seen the best results.

I have been so pleasantly surprised by this @origins Ginzing Refreshing Eye Cream.
Despite not loving the packaging (I don't love jars and prefer pumps or tubes, but that's personal preference), this still does a great job.
It's hydrating, doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes and what I love most is that the slightly orange pigment does wonders to brighten my eyes up in the morning!
It's really made a difference which has been a very nice surprise. So if you're looking for little pick me up, this is really great!

Day 14 of the #cultbeautyskincarechallenge and today's theme is โšก๏ธ DOUBLE CLEANSE โšก๏ธ
. 
I tend to only double cleanse on days I've worn layers of spf and makeup. If I've been a hermit and stayed indoors all day watching Netflix, I'm happy with a single cleanse. (I'm quite often a hermit ๐Ÿ™Š).
.
My first cleanse is always a balm or oil cleanser. The oil attracts the dirt, makeup, spf, grime and all that good stuff. I also love a good facial massage to bring blood flow to the face.
@farmacybeauty Green Clean is such a phenomenal first cleanse and is a pleasure to use! ยฃ32 can be found @cultbeauty.
.
For my second cleanse, I like to go in with an AHA cleanser to get a mild exfoliation and combat any excess sebum. Perfect for this step is the @drlevyofficial 3 Deep Cell Renewal Cleanser. I love that it can be used as a great Deep cleanser or even as a mask. Such a good product for traveling since it kills two birds with one stone. ยฃ39 can be found @cultbeauty.
.
I have reviews on both these cleansers and you can find them here #talesofskincarereview.
.
What are your double cleanse fave combos?

For the past six weeks I've decreased the amount and strength of retinol I've been using in order to have a medium depth peel next week. For the past 2 weeks I've used no AHA/BHA products and for the next week I won't use anything remotely exfoliating.
