I am a firm believer that true beauty comes from within, yet I still get a little stressed out at the sight of dark spots, under-eye circles, and sagging skin. So what do usually I do? Apply foundation and move on of course!
My only problem was that I wanted to feel just as beautiful au naturel as I did with a full face of makeup.
If you've been following this blog then you know I've tried numerous skincare products, some great, and some not so great. I've even improved my skin to a great degree, but never enough to actually prefer my bare skin over wearing makeup.
I'm excited to say that I've finally found something so good that I now only wear foundation when I want to, not becuase I feel like I have to. That means no more covering up my "imperfections" with heavy makeup, only to see it melt within hours, causing me to look even worse.
So what am I using?
NeoStrata Foaming Glycolic Wash is a pH-balanced cleanser made with 18% Glycolic Acid and 2% Lactobionic Acid.
These acids are from a group of alpha hydroxy acids that work to smooth the surface of the skin, refine pores, improve blemishes/dark spots, lessen wrinkles, and decrease the signs of aging. As with any skin care routine, you have to prep the canvas before you treat, and NeoStrata does just that.
Who should use it?
This product is best suited for those who are already experienced with glycolic acid but want to see even more results.

My user experience:
I received a full-size bottle which is 3.4oz and costs $40.00 retail. The product comes in a pump bottle which dispenses the perfect amount of product in the form of a light and airy foam.
How to use it?
I apply the foaming wash to wet skin every morning and every evening before my moisturizer. It lathers quickly and I don't notice any strong smells making the product very pleasant to use. I rinse and pat dry. I'm also careful not to get any of the product into my eyes.
I started seeing results within a week and consistently from that point forward. As time went on I saw my pores decreasing, dark spots fading, and texture becoming more refined. Before I knew it, I found myself taking off my makeup instead of putting it on. My skin was clear enough on its own, no makeup required. Now let me be clear, I will always love makeup, but it sure feels nice choosing when to wear it and feeling confident with or without it. I've been using Neostrata Foaming Glycolic Wash for about 45 days.
Would I buy this for myself? In a heartbeat.
Tell me about the brand: In 1998, doctors Eugene Van Scott and Ruey Yu founded NeoStrata Company, Inc. as a way to being their years of AHA (alpha hydroxy acids) research and skincare technology to patients, clinicians, and businesses. NeoStrata Inc. is located in Princeton, New Jersey. If you'd like to learn more about NeoStrata you can click here.
