Skin concerns: Acne, loss of elasticity, dullness
Background: When I was a teenager, I suffered from acne that ended up clearing in my 20s. I always loved trying various skin products, so for years now, I’ve had a steady skin routine. A few months ago, adult acne really hit, and I began to suffer my teen skin woes all over again, with some post-acne scarring and discoloration. My typical routine for the morning consists of toner, moisturizer, eye cream, and SPF. In the evening, I double cleanse, follow up with a serum, oil, night cream, and eye cream. When I have an acne flare-up, I’ll use a spot treatment.
Review: This was honestly the perfect time for me to try out these Bliss products. After talking to my dermatologist, who told me that less is more, I decided to tone down all the products I was using and mainly focus on the Bliss products. At first, I used all three in the morning and at night. One pump of the serum is all I needed to feel like I was bathing in liquid sunshine; it made my face feel smooth and fresh. The moisturizer is thick and a little goes a long way, so because of that, I was able to give my neck some TLC, too. The smell of both these products is actually bliss: They smell like an orange dream, and that’s coming from someone who is typically sensitive to smells. After a week or so, I decided to alternate between the serum and moisturizer during the day (while still using both at night) because when I’d layer them together, it took longer for everything to blend into my skin, which I didn’t like for a morning routine. And let’s not forget about the eye cream: It’s rich and fluffy—a bit heavier than I usually pick for that area—but I just loved the way it made my skin look and feel. I swear my skin has evened out and brightened up so much because of these products. I can’t wait to see how my skin will look in a few months after continuing to use them!
