Okay I’ll admit it— I used to be really bad about sun protection. I spent the summer at my dad’s house in Hawaii and prided myself on my dark brown summer tan. Now, years later- I totally regret roasting on the beach. I have freckles galore and you can see every single spot on my body that has ever been sunburned- because of the plethora of extra freckles.
Which is why, when I found about CV Skinlabs, I wanted to give them a try.
“CV Skinlabs is a natural and organic collection of luxuriously soothing and clinically proven formulas that nurture and repair skin, while restoring radiance. Each product delivers outstanding beauty benefits and proven results, with an unprecedented, new standard of safety, every step of the way.”
When I moved to Hermosa Beach and went to a dermatologist for the first time in years, I was immediately chastised for my previous skin-care habits- because to be honest, they really sucked. So I bought a hat, stocked up on sunscreen and ever since I have been super diligent about sun exposure.
Except for when I’m not— that’s where CV Skinlabs came in handy last week.
I teach a photo class on Saturday’s, and recently switched my class to 2 p.m. instead of the usual 4:30 p.m., (whoa harsh sun!) and paid for it later with a pretty pink sunburn around my neck and on my arms.
I was amazed at how the Rescue + Relief Spray ($34) immediately calmed my red-hot skin. The next day, instead of irritated or peeling, my skin was magically back to normal. I even took the spray to the next level and used it after exfoliating my skin and the usual irritated redness faded away within minutes.
The Body Repair Lotion ($36) was just as helpful after a seriously painful leg-waxing session. The red bumps quickly subsided and my skin felt healthy again- minus a whole bunch of hair!
I’m not a believer in magic potions or skin-saving elixirs, but the CV Skinlabs products actually work.
I have a chemical peel coming up in a couple of weeks to help get rid of some of the damage I did to my skin in the past- and I’m definitely going to rely on their Rescue + Relief spray to get me through the after effects and calm my dry and itchy skin.
