Hi guys! So I’m sure you’ve probably either seen my new Youtube video or have seen me holding or talking about Proven skincare (think: chic shiny silver bottles) but I wanted to go even more into depth about why I love Proven skincare, how the personalization process works, and a little bit more about how I’ve been using it.
I think by now, a lot of us know that there is no “one size fits all” for skincare – what works for me might not work for you, etc, etc. I find it really frustrating when I use a product that someone absolutely swears by and it does literally nothing for my skin… It’s costly and aggravating so I’ve found that the best way to avoid that situation is to invest in personalized skincare, like Proven.
To give a little rundown on how Proven works: you basically start by taking a skin assessment. The skin assessment is super detailed and goes into things like your age, gender, ethnicity, environmental factors, travel habits, and more. These are things that you may not originally take into consideration but each of these factors can have a big impact on your skin and are different for everyone so taking this assessment really just enhances the ability to personalize skincare products for you. Once you’ve taken the skin assessment, an AI database, which is known as the Skin Genome Project, helps you discover which ingredients will work best on your skin. This is an incredibly advanced and trustworthy process since the database has the ability to analyze the effectiveness of over 20,000 ingredients – which is so important because what’s the point in buying a skincare product or products that have ineffective ingredients in them? The Skin Genome Project basically has the ability to find the solutions to your skin’s problems and once it does- then ultimately, you receive a personalized skincare regimen with products that are custom-made for you :)
Plus, two added bonuses are that shipping is free (always, love that) and that once you checkout, you get a free one-on-one with their skin guru and lead esthetician, Joshua, who’s super insightful and can help guide you through the whole process and answer any questions you may have.
The whole process is really easy to do, plus it checks off all the boxes we care about: clean ingredients, cruelty-free, no parabens, no phthalates, no SLS, and no formaldehyde.
And not that this is the most important thing, but the branding and packaging is so clean and chic – which is something I love because I like to showcase my skincare products on my vanity shelf :)
So the package you receive will come with a cleanser, a sunscreen (protector), and a night repair cream. I use the cleanser right when I wake up in the morning and before I go to bed. I use the sunscreen all throughout the day and honestly, it’s probably the best sunscreen I’ve ever used since it’s a blend of both physical and chemical properties, which is amazing because it works right away and it doesn’t give you that chalky white look after applying. I use the night repair cream before I go to bed and I like to put it on about 15 minutes before I go to sleep so that it has a chance to sink in without going straight on to my pillow :)
Some of the ingredients that I love that were included in the products in my skincare package were:
- Grapefruit extract – when you apply grapefruit extract on your skin, it provides you with anti-aging benefits like evening your skin tone and fighting off free radicals.
- Hyaluronic acid – helps diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles (the ultimate goal lol)
- Tasmanian pepper – since I travel a lot this ingredient is amazing for my skin since it has anti-allergic and broad antimicrobial activities.
- Ginseng – helps tone & brighten skin.
- Lavender oil – helps combat stress
& so much more!
After using my personalized skincare routine from Proven, I’ve definitely noticed that my skin has a more even tone to it and that it’s just overall cleaner and clearer. The sunscreen makes my skin feel hydrated and protected from the sun at the same time and the night replenish cream really locks in moisture to keep my skin plump and dewy (my fave). These are definitely the kind of products that you actually WANT to put on because you know that you’ll see the changes that you want start to happen either overnight or over the span of a week or two.
The goal of this post was mainly to educate you but I definitely think that if you’re looking to personalize your skincare routine, Proven is the most advanced and trusted process and you’ll actually be able to see the results you want with the help of their customized products!
