I thought I was a pretty confident person until I had a bought with adult acne. I never thought having acne would affect my mood or personality but it did. I was so annoyed and would not leave the house without layers of foundation on. I worked on my confidence from the inside and then I went about tackling my skin issues which led me to my current skincare obsession. If you have been reading my blog recently, you may have noticed that I’ve been on this quest to get rid of my hyperpigmentation and acne scarring. I have tried a number of serums and creams trying to get to my skin goals and although I was pleased with my progress, it didn’t seem to be happening fast enough!
A friend of mine works at Thalgo and she sent me a couple of the MCeutic products to try and I was sold! In fact, I was so impressed with the brand in general that I agreed to come out of SPA retirement and get back out there and represent Thalgo in the DMV (DC, Maryland and Virginia)! Yes, I’m now an Account Executive for the Spa division and I couldn’t be more excited but let’s get back to the products that you clicked this post for shall we!
The MCeutic Line from Thalgo has two Cream-Serums that have the same potency as a traditional serum but also have additional hydration. The Normalizer Cream-Serum is for blemish control. It refines the skin texture and tightens pores. The Resurfacer Cream-Serum helps with hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, and uneven skin tone. Now from those descriptions, you can probably tell which one is my favorite and in case you can’t guess, it’s definitely the Resurfacer! However, if my pores are looking a bit crazy, I do switch to the Normalizer.
MCEUTIC Normalizer and Resurfacer Cream-Serum
Price: $100 each
Available at Nordstrom and Luxury Spa’s
Personally, I think the products are great and I can actually see the results after continuous use for 3 months. When I added this product to my regimen, I saw results faster than I usually do with my other serums and I saw my hyperpigmentation fade along with my acne scarring. I don’t experience any discomfort when using the serums, although there was a slight tingling when I first started using the product. I also really like that both Cream-Serums are for day and night use (use sunscreen in the daytime though, don’t forget). The texture feels like a very lightweight cream moisturizer and leaves no residue or sticky feeling behind. The packaging is efficient and there is an easy twist cap pump. You twist to open, pump out product and then twist back to close. The Resurfacer Cream-Serum is a staple in my stash and I plan on getting the at home peel as well. I also had the opportunity to receive the Professional Level 2 Peel and it was an amazing experience with no downtime which is why I’m anxious to get the at home version.
Please note that I am slightly biased because I’ve seen the facials, seen the demo’s, sat through the explanation of the clinicals, gotten an MCEUTIC Peel and use the products for business so that all plays into my review here but I’m trying very hard to speak on personal use only. I also do not get paid to write about the products or personal use experience.
