As a working college student, I am on the go 24/7. Of course, the “work grind” that we all know so well tends to take a real toll on our bodies; especially on our skin. Personally, I notice that my skin tends to dry out and get irritated after consistently being out and about. Definitely not a desired look during the winter! Between the cold environment and lack of moisture, it can be difficult to achieve glowing, hydrated skin while also scurrying around trying to meet deadlines on essays and articles both in and out of school. I’m sure busy women everywhere can agree that an overloaded daily schedule damages skin in more ways than one.
I checked out Illume Spa’s product line, which offers an array of skincare products aimed at ridding the skin of unwanted dirt and impurities in no-time. Of course, the thought of this seemed way too good to be true, but after using the products for two weeks, I was pleasantly mistaken. After all, the working owners of Illume Spa, Kathryn and Lexandra, are recognized skincare experts, so I was definitely in good hands. I had the pleasure of indulging in three of Illume’s exclusive products: the Light Moisture Antioxidant Crème, the Calm Bomb Gentle Foaming Wash, and the Aromatic Body Crème.
Light Moisture Antioxidant Crème — $70
Applying this antioxidant-rich cream daily left me with some surprisingly quick results! It provides superior extended skin protection as well as infuses skin with ingredients that are known to be packed with antioxidants such as green tea, Ferulic acid, and grape seed extracts. The cream is also packed with Hyaluronic acid, aloe, and Vitamin E, which all help to nourish and restore fatty skin barriers, allowing the skin to promote environmental resistance (goodbye harsh winter winds!).
Calm Bomb Gentle Foaming Wash — $26
With just a dime-sized drop, some water, and a light scrub, this foaming wash does wonders in cleaning the skin. Best used twice a day (once in the morning and once in the evening), this skin-soothing botanical face wash has been created to wash away any and all undesirable dirt and impurities, while phytonutrients – including green tea, chamomile, comfrey root and calendula – aid in calming even the most sensitive skin! It’s the perfect face wash to completely clear your skin after a long day of hustle and bustle.
Aromatic Body Crème — $30
After applying the antioxidant cream and washing my face with the foaming wash, ending each day on a relaxing note was an essential. Illume Spa’s Aromatic Body Crème did just that! This body cream helps nourish skin while also helping you to feel relaxed and pampered! Whether you’re craving a nice back massage or even a gentle foot massage, the Aromatic Body Crème is a perfect option.
