What’s your biggest skin concern? Aging? Discoloration? Adult acne? Sensitive skin? In a sea of beauty products, how can you know what product works best for your SPECIFIC skincare concerns? The folks at The Good Chemist are here to help with customized skincare regimens. These Power Pairing regimens each contain two or three custom products designed to perform on your chief beauty issue.
ABOUT THE GOOD CHEMIST
Founded by a skin care obsessed female chemist, The Good Chemist only uses independently tested, clinically proven ingredients in all their formulations.
The idea behind The Good Chemist is keeping skin care simple and focused: instead of using multiple products that can unduly irritate the skin, use just a few well-designed products to perform exceptionally.
SPECIAL INGREDIENTS THAT MAKE FOR SPECIAL PRODUCTS
The Good Chemist combines synergistic, clinically proven ingredients to build the ideal ingredient cocktail for your skin to get impressive results fast. Some examples:
- Two non-irritating forms of Vitamin C that don’t irritate skin as most topical Vitamin Cs do.
- Anti-aging powerhouses of Retinol, combined with multiple collagen producing, skin rejuvenating Peptides, and beautifying Matrixyl-3000.
- Discoloration eradicating, scar-fading superstars like Oligopeptide 68.
- Skin enhancing antioxidants including acai, goji, noni, and mangosteen.
- Skin nourishing, vitamin-packed seaweed, Coenzyme Q10, and Aloe Vera.
- Moisturizing Hyaluronic Acid, cucumber, Jojoba, and Vitamin E.
Also important is what these Cruelty-Free The Good Chemist regimens do NOT contain: No added dyes or fragrances, parabens, phthalates, triclosan, -cones, or petrolatum.
We had a chance to try two of The Good Chemist Regimens targeted at our specific skin concerns: anti-aging and adult acne.
THE GOOD CHEMIST ANTI-AGING TRIO
If we had to pick just one product from The Good Chemist lineup, this would be it.
We love the effect of applying the Youth Boost because the hyaluronic acid instantly erases the appearance of wrinkles and crinkles on the skin, and makes pores practically invisible. I feel like Youth Boost instantly knocks a decade off the appearance of my eye area, face and throat, even in unforgiving lighting situations.
It is not greasy or sticky and does not irritate the skin. Most importantly, it layers well with other products. I use Youth Boost layered with my moisturizer, sunscreen, primer, foundation and powder, and experience no pilling of products as can occur with some serums. I especially like how it softens the eye area without giving a fake expressionless look to the skin. It has long-acting anti-aging benefits from the peptides and antioxidants. It includes one of my favorite peptides, Matrixyl-3000, which jumpstarts collagen production, tricking the body into “repair mode”.
TIP: You are gonna want to slather this on, but it really only takes one pump worth to do the trick.
Renew Balm is a 1% Retinol intended for use around the delicate eye area. It is applied nightly. While 1% is a relatively lower dose of Retinol compared to a Retin-a or Renova prescriptions, this dosage is highly suitable for the thinner eye area skin in order to keep it from becoming red and irritated. Even the highly emollient Renova can be too much retinol for the eye area and must be used with caution.
To boost its’ efficacy, it is combined with Matrixyl-3000 to smooth and plump, and Shea butter and jojoba to soothe the skin. This combination provides the best firming and smoothing combo without being overly aggressive on the eye area.
RADIANCE REPAIR SERUM
Does Vitamin C Serum leave your skin irritated and itchy? You aren’t alone. Radiance Repair Serum has two forms of Vitamin C, both are non-L-Ascorbic based, with is the irritating type of Vitamin C. These two vitamins C’s gentler to the skin but still highly effective in fading discoloration, largely due to the inclusion of Oligopeptide 68, which regulates the production of melanin.
Radiance Repair also is far more tolerable for those of us with sensitive skin because it contains Vitamin E and Aloe Vera.
