How does the time fly so quickly? It’s hard to believe I’m now at the 90 day stage (or thereabouts) of my 100 Day Reset challenge with the International Institute for Anti Ageing (iiaa) so as I’ve recently had to replenish my products, I thought a little update was in order. If you’ve seen my latest vlog that went live on Sunday (CLICK HERE) you’ll already have had a little insight into where I am with my skin, but incase you’re not yet subscribed to my channel or up to date with the videos, here’s a little written update.
One of the questions I get asked many, many times about quality skincare that’s priced even a smidgen higher than highstreet prices is “how long does it last?”. A valid question when you could be spending a substantial amount on your full skincare range.
Before I started on the 100 Day Reset, (CLICK HERE FOR DAY 1) I was constantly trialling new and different skincare so it was very hard to know or gauge how long any particular pot or tube of skincare would last. As part of this skincare challenge, I’ve been using ONLY my Environ products for the entire period, so it’s been a really good way to see how long before each product needs replenishing.
The first of the products to run out was my AVST Moisturiser 1, which I would say lasted around two and a half months. I’m using two pumps in the morning and the same again at night. The next to run out, at about the same time, was the Vita-Peptide Eye Gel, of which I’m using just under one pump morning and night.
The other products in my regime; the Cleanser, the Toner, and the Avance peptide serum (one pump of this morning and night, mixed into my AVST 1 Moisturiser), have lasted just under a full three months and I’ve only just had to replace them all. Of course, the Advanced Nutrition Supplements come in a blister pack of 28, to last 28 days, so those have had to be replenished every month.
The other question, of course, is “but does it work?” Well, as before, if you’ve seen my video (CLICK HERE) you’ll know how thrilled I am with the results, but here’s an unedited, almost no makeup photo so you can see the results for yourself. I’m wearing a bit of mascara and some lip balm, but I promise you, there is no makeup whatsoever on my skin. Not even concealer. Bearing in mind I’m a busy working mother of three children, I couldn’t be more happy with what the Environ skincare and the Advanced Nutrition supplements have achieved. My monthly breakout of one or two blemishes ‘the week before’ have disappeared, and I hardly wear any foundation anymore, just a bit of concealer under the eyes when I’m going out. My pores appear smaller and my skin just feels fuller and plumper. I’ve also had three Environ facials as part of my programme, which I can’t recommend enough – probably the best ‘results-driven’ facial I’ve ever had.
In just a few days time, I will have reached the 100 days, but I can safely say I won’t be packing away my Environ skincare…in fact, I’m wondering if I’ll ever be able to give it up; I’m almost addicted to the results.
As you can see from the pictures, I’ve now ‘graduated’ up to AVST Moisturiser 2 (it goes up to 5), so my moisturiser contains even more actives, and I’m excited to see what difference the step up is going to make to my skin. For my 100 Day update, I’ve promised you lot a completely unedited, totally no make-up photo so that will be coming up soon.
