Today I am writing about skincare from a company called NR Skin. It was founded by Nancy Ryan, who has worked with many dermatologists and plastic surgeons as well as skincare companies such as Ortho Dermatologics™, (makers of Retin-A Micro®/Renova®) and NeoStrata®. Nancy’s line is the culmination of her life’s work and her dream realized. NR Skin’s mission is to help people improve their quality of life by achieving healthy, beautiful skin. They offer pure, highly effective products that deliver incredible results. They have skincare regimens with products that offer targeted goals using high-quality, potent ingredients. They are formulated with a blend of a combination of science and nature, the products contain high concentrations of anti-oxidants, peptides, botanical stem cells, essential oils, vitamins and minerals.
All of the NR Skin products are Leaping Bunny certified. They have not been tested on animals. They are made in the United States. All of the NR Skin products do not contain any parabens, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfates, pesticides, phthalates, artificial dyes or synthetic fragrances.
I received the Normal To Dry Age Repair Trio ($267.00) regimen, which is supposed to contain the following: Super C Serum, Super Antioxidant Cream, and Neuro Peptide Serum. However, mine was missing the Super Antioxidant Cream and instead contained the Retinol Complex Treatment. I also tested out the Comfort Cleanser.
Comfort Cleanser 4 fl.oz./120 mL $29.00
This is a pure and natural lathering cleanser that gently removes dirt, oil, impurities and makeup. It does not cause any irritation and leaves skin feeling clean refreshed. Wheat germ oil prevents visible signs of aging by neutralizing free radicals. Coconut oil moisturizes the skin. Glycerin hydrates it and seaweed extract contains Vitamin B to help reduce redness in the skin. This cleanser is rich in Vitamins A, D and E. It smoothes rough, cracked and wrinkled skin. This cleanser provides anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties. Comfort Cleanser promotes skin cell formation to help heal scars, stretch marks and sunburns. The cleanser is designed for all skin types and is great for sensitive skin or skin that has been traumatized (that which has undergone medical procedures). It has anti-oxidant, anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties.
I found this cleanser to be an excellent cleanser. It does a great job of taking off makeup yet does not leave skin feeling dry or stripped of moisture. The natural moisture barrier of the skin is left intact. Makeup is definitely removed well, oil and dirt are also removed well. Skin feels good after cleansing with Comfort Cleanser. I am not sure if it really does all of the above, but it does a good job of cleansing the skin, which is what I ask for in a cleanser. I like that it lathers well. It does its job and that is what I ask for in a good product.
Super C Serum Treatment 1 fl.oz./30 mL $89.00
I adore a good Vitamin C serum. NR Skin has a great one. Their Super C Serum Treatment is a highly advanced infuses skin with a 20% L-ascorbic acid, which is the only form of Vitamin C suitable for topical application. The serum also contains Vitamins B, E and Ferulic acid. It also contains panthenol and glycerin to hydrate and soothe skin. Hyaluronic acid moisturizes skin, attracting moisture to the skin. This combination delivers a full scope of anti-oxidant care for complete skin rejuvenation. It will help to brighten up sun damage, lighten hyperpigmentation, rejuvenate and refine dull skin, aging skin, oily skin, and blemish prone skin. It’s even great to help minimize fine lines and wrinkles, it brightens and tightens skin. Elasticity is improved and skin becomes more plump. It protects against damaging free radicals that come from UVA and UVB rays. Skin becomes more luminous. The formula is an exceptional one that is perfect for all skin types, except those who are extremely sensitive.
This serum is an excellent way to brighten up skin that is starting to show signs of aging. Take me for example. My sun damage is starting to show up. I had a lot of sun burns when I was younger. Well now I am experiencing a lot of freckling and hyperpigmentation showing up on my skin. So of course I wanted to see if I can tackle them. I would always recommend a Vitamin C serum for this. This serum is perfect for this reason. It does help to brighten up the skin, making it clear and beautiful. I love how nice it looks now. I did experience a reduction in my brown spots. Also, my skin felt firmer and just looked better.
Neuro Peptide Serum (All-In-One) 1 f.oz./30 mL $89.00
This serum is an all-in-one serum for the face, eyes, neck and décolleté. It is a combination of nature and neuro-chemistry united to combat wrinkles. Improve and relax crow’s feet, frown lines and other dynamic wrinkles with this fusion of neuro-peptides that are well known to relax intense muscle contractions and increase collagen. Within days of using this you should begin to notice smoother skin, fewer wrinkles around the eye area and a glowing appearance in general. The peptides have been recommended by physicians as an alternative to cosmetic injections. They are designed to relax wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes. The serum does the following: helps to reduce wrinkle depth and volume, stimulates skin cells, firms and lifts skin and brightens skin color/clarity.
Retinol Complex Treatment 12 fl.oz./30 mL $89.00
Most retinol products contain only 1% retinol. Which is fine. But to get excellent results you need more. NR Skin Retinol Complex Treatment contains 2% retinol to help boost cell renewal. This helps to build firmness, minimize brown spots and diminish fine lines and wrinkles. It also normalizes sebaceous gland activity so that breakouts are minimized, breakouts are then healed, skin is rejuvenated and looks radiant, the complexion end up looking amazing. This treatment has a great moisturizing formula of jojoba seed oil, apricot kernel oil, squalane and hyaluronic acid. It does not cause skin irritation as happens with other retinol treatments.
I am loving this treatment product! Retinol is one of the best anti-aging ingredients on the market and it is a great way to help make yourself look younger. Used in conjunction with other anti-aging products, such as Super C Serum Treatment, you will have skin that looks and feels softer, smoother, with less hyperpigmentation. Skin is renewed and moisturized from the wonderful complex of hydrating ingredients in this formula. I will never go back to 1% retinol formula again!
All in all, I was extremely happy with the NR Skin line. After testing it out for a month I did notice great results with the line. My hyperpigmentation was decreased, I had fine lines that disappeared and my skin looked brighter, felt softer, smoother and was generally more radiant. I do think this is a great line to invest in for better skin. My favorite product is the Retinol Complex Treatment, which helps to make skin look better all together. I love all of the products I tested out, actually and when used in synergy they make the skin look fabulous. This line is one that many physicians and estheticians in medical spas use. It is a line that contains only the best ingredients, with good science behind it.
