Probiotics, or “good” bacteria and yeasts, are important for the health of your digestive system. Now their powerful healing benefits can be applied to your skin, your body’s largest organ. TULA’s Probiotic Skin Care approach harnesses the power of probiotics and other nourishing ingredients to protect your skin against  “bad” bacteria and environmental conditions that harm and age your skin.”

Tula Skincare-3 Week Review

Hi loves!

As promised, I am writing to tell you about my 3 week results with Tula Skincare products!

IMG_6663[1]

For those of you who did not get a chance to read my original post about TULA Skincare, here’s a little bit of information about the product: TULA was founded by Dr. Roshini Raj, a gastroenterologist and internist who believes in nourishing the body both internally and externally. “Each product is infused with a probiotic complex, which contains yogurt; green tea; blueberry extracts; and vitamins A, C, and E. Fruit extracts are also incorporated into the line. With TULA, Dr. Raj introduces a simple collection of products designed to bring that sense of balance to every woman’s daily skin care routine.”

Typically when I am trying a new skincare product I use it for a straight 2 weeks to see results. If I do not see any changes I move onto something new. I don’t know if that is exactly the best route but I am a very impatient person. If a product isn’t helping me look ageless it’s time to move on 🙂 I decided to continue my Tula Skincare regimen for 3 weeks before my review. Honestly, we had a lot of travel and work events scheduled for the month and as much as I would like to say that I am strict with my skincare regimen when I’m traveling I am really not 🙁 so to be fair I gave my skin ample time to see the results of Tula.

Let’s begin with the type of skin I have so you can better relate. My skin type is fairly sensitive. It is more on the dry side and certain areas of my face are very dry. This makes it really hard to find a moisturizer that hydrates fully but does not leave my skin feeling and/or looking oily. Does this sound familiar to you? Well then I have good news for you!

One of my favorite Tula products was the Hydrating Day/Night Cream. I loved how moisturized my face felt after this and again not oily at all! While we were in DC last weekend (still need to share that trip with you!) my skin was extra dry because of the extremely cold weather so I would have to apply my moisturizer in the morning, let it sit for a few minutes and then reapply another layer. It moisturized my face perfectly but I didn’t feel like I had a heavy amount of lotion on my face at all even after the 2 applications. My only complaint here is that the hydrating cream did not have any SPF. My BB Cream has SPF so I’m not worried about that too much this time of year, but come summer I will most likely switch out my day moisturizer for something with additional SPF. We gotta protect that beautiful skin ladies!

Okay, so my most favorite product from this line is the Exfoliating Treatment Mask. It gently exfoliates dead skin cells to reveal your glowing complexion. P.S. Glamour also labeled this mask as a best new trend for 2016. If we can’t trust Glamour Magazine who can we trust?! 🙂 You will not be disappointed!

Samples sizes of the Purifying Face Wash, Illuminating Face Serum, Revitalizing Eye Cream and Hydrating Cream (all products I have used in the past 3 weeks) can be purchased together in the Discovery Kit. The kit is only $52 and perfect for you to try out all of these products before committing to them. The Exfoliating Treatment Mask isn’t included in the discovery kit, but I would highly recommend that purchase!

To be completely honest I have other face washes I prefer and I didn’t get the results I specifically wanted with the eye cream so I most likely will not continue using those 2 products in my skincare routine, but I most definitely will continue using the Hydrating Day/Night Cream and Exfoliating Treatment Mask. Overall I loved the products. Try them out and let me know your thoughts!

Tula Skincare

So last night I started my Tula skincare regimen. I don’t know if it’s because I got 5 hours of sleep (much more than usual) or if it’s my new purifying face wash and face cream, but today my face looks and feels so much more hydrated than usual! Only time will tell!

As we age, we must change up our skincare routine. I will never forget one of my professors in college telling us that it was never too early to start using eye cream. I believed her and started immediately. I am totally thankful today!

In my 20’s my main focus was to keep it simple:

1) Wash my face every night before bed

and

2) Always where some type of sunscreen on my face. Lord knows I love the sun!

I have to say my “keep it simple” method worked fairly well, but now that I am in my 30’s and naturally my skin is aging. My skin is aging, but I am not. Weird, I know. 🙂 This means, slower cell turnover which amounts to dryness, volume loss so less tightening of the skin, thinner skin which exposes expression lines and sometimes even acne can all of a sudden show up in this decade. WTF, right?

So now, my regimen needs to change up a bit and that is why I searched for products that could help me avoid all these things this decade may bring. After much researching and actually some amazing reviews from some of my fav beauty bloggers I have decided to try Tula and share my results with you!

Tula is an all natural skincare line that does not test on animals. Tula believes in the power of probiotics.

Probiotics, or “good” bacteria and yeasts, are important for the health of your digestive system. Now their powerful healing benefits can be applied to your skin, your body’s largest organ. TULA’s Probiotic Skin Care approach harnesses the power of probiotics and other nourishing ingredients to protect your skin against  “bad” bacteria and environmental conditions that harm and age your skin.”

“Their scientific technology stimulates production of vital defense cells to make your skin healthier and more resistant to damage.”

The products I will be adding to my daily routine and reviewing are:

Learn more about the brand and all products here.

As I mentioned, I just started my new Tula routine yesterday so I will report back my full results in a couple of weeks, but I can tell you that I am already loving how lightweight all of these products are! This is something I look for in all of my beauty items! It hydrates but does not leave my skin feeling oily!

I can’t wait to share my end results you!

Thanks for following sweet friends!

Happy Monday!
