A few weeks ago, I was lucky to win a wonderful giveaway from Skinfive.5 and Beauty 101 Blog (which you should visit here, since Casey puts so much care in her pictures and gives lovely advice to all her readers!).
I entered the giveaway because I'm always looking to improve my skincare and looking at the Skinfive.5 website, the company obviously puts a lot of thought into the packaging, the ingredients, and the person using the products. Skinfive.5 products are meant to help with rejuvenation, radiance, and overall flawlessness of the skin, and there are specific serums to achieve these great results. The serums are highly concentrated, yet meant for sensitive skin, are light weight, non-greasy, nourishing, and have no strong scent (the items are made in Switzerland which is always a plus).

Pros: The products are truly effective and feel luxurious on the face. I usually find that with drugstore brands, there is a rubbery fallout after applying too much lotion but I definitely did not have this problem with Skinfive.5. I have been using the serums for a while and have noticed my skin is brighter, softer, and radiant. Most importantly, these products have not caused my skin to break out because the serum absorbs fast into the skin. The products come with instructions and descriptions, but I tend to apply the serums at night and in the morning on a bare face after which I apply my SPF, daily moisturizer, and BB cream.
Because I have sensitive skin, I am always wary of anti-aging creams because of harshness and chemicals. Happily, the Skinfive.5 products are very gentle on the skin and the test for this was whether my eyes became watery. I applied the strongest serums under and around my eyes and there was absolutely no irritation. So, for the ladies looking for an anti-aging regimen, these products are highly effective and work wonders on any kind of skin. Even if you find that the serums are not effective on your skin type, the creams/serums still provide a ton of moisture and are wonderful for the colder weather.
As a quick side note, I completely appreciated the sleek packaging and the personal touches of gift wrapping the products. Beauty is also about the company behind the products and customer service - in dealing with Skinfive.5, I was impressed with their friendliness, openness to suggestions, and receptiveness to customer needs.
Cons: The only thing I could fault is not really with the products, but with the price. The price is in the higher range and you must save up to purchase, but because skincare is so important and after all, it's your face, it would be wise to save and try the Skinfive.5 products.
I recommend visiting the Skinfive.5 website for more detailed information about the products and availability for various skin types - the serums and creams offered work for a wide variety of issues so you may only need to purchase/focus on one type of benefit.
