Must-have: Smooth-365 Intensive Clarity + Smoothing Peptide Serum

Let's face it. We're not getting any younger... looking at my vanity, I notice how much it differs from what I had on it a few years back. Now it's filled with anti-aging creams, undereye cream and moisturizers.

But I'm not complaining as I think that I am aging with graace and enjoying every day that comes. Although I hope that my skin wouldn't succumb to gravity, I try to help it a bit by using products that I know are effective. After all, anti-aging products doesn't come cheap. Matter of fact, it's one of the most expensive things out there.

Year 2011 is all about defying time and taking on oppotunities. One of those is to use Smooth-365 Intensive Clarity and Smoothing Peptide Serum.

I am over the moon with this product. It's a silicone base gel-cream that is infused with peptide complex that will turn back time and give you back that youthful appearance, smooth, even and more radiant looking.

I personally didn't try it first without having to do some research on it. Makeupalley.com reviews gives this an outstanding review while the US Official Site of Goodskin Labs provided me with all the information I needed to learn to about Smooth - 365. 

There are a few things that makes Smooth-365 great:
  1. Yeast Extract, Mulberry, Grapeseed and Scutelleria - these ingredients helps in dispersing melanin production that makes skin appear more even. Even skin = better looking skin.
  2. Optical Diffussers and Flamenco Blue Pearls and soft focus silicas called Monoveil - upon application, you'll notice blurring of your fine lines and a more smoother texture of your skin. These silicone ingredients are responsible for that. It also helps reflect light that your skin appears clearer even with just one application.
  3. Hight tech Peptides: Palmitoyl Oligopeptide and Acetyl Hexapeptide - encourages collagen production that give back that youthful look to the skin with prolong use.
Smooth-365 have have the following stages of effects:
  • Upon application, your face will appear smoother, softer and more pliant to foundation or any sort of makeup application. Fine lines are less apparent and you will appear a lot more photogenic on photos.
  • A few weeks of use and you'll notice a more radiant and even skin tone.
  • More than a month or so, your skin will become more supple with increase of collagen production, and there are less lines and wrinkles with continued us.
How to use:
  • Squeeze tube to the palm.
  • Warm the product by rubbing both hands together.
  • Gently pat the palms on to your face until every thing is cover
  • Smoothen it out with your fingers

Double Duty:
Not only is the Smooth-365 a great anti-aging product but it can also serve as a makeup primer as it is filled with silicone that is known to make foundation application a lot smoother and help makeup stay on longer.

Recommendations:
  • Denifinitely a great product for those who are already conscious about aging.
  • For those who loves makeup and want a primer that can double as anti-aging product.
  • Want immediate results of less visisble lines and wrinkles, especially during event.

Downside:
  • If you are allergic to silicone-base product, this is not a good product for me.
  • Ridden with adult acne may cause this product to aggravate it as it may clog your pores if you don't visit your dermatologist for treatments.

I know I am getting a bit to report-ish on this, but this is what I love about products from Goodskin Labs, they tell me everything I need to know about the products and I see the results when I use it. I am defnitelygetting me some more of Smooth-365 soon. I am almost half-way through mine already and I really do love the results it provides. Although with every anti-aging product, must be a accompanied with a good healthy lifestyle.. I'd say I have a great product on my hands as I am most certainly not eating and sleeping right.

Ooh, nice review, Shen. I saw this together with the eye creams being sold at SM together for a cheaper price. But I thought it was just a little too expensive and it would be awful if this broke me out if I bought it. I wish they have smaller sizes or samples so we can try them first before splurging on it. A couple of thousands for one product is no joke. But I am itching to try this especially the eye cream. :)

I really love everything about goodskin labs products. even if i get some of them fr review, i am going to continue using them buying with my own moolah. the eyeliplex-2 is my most favorite. very gentle to the skin around the eyes.

smooth 365, i really reco for aging women, like our moms, tita's and even aging men. for us who still have acne should use this with caution. and those who could be allergic to silicone, this product might be too much for them.

it's a good thing i'm not allergic to silicone. :)

Thanks for the review! I really need to start using this. I have one unopened because I've always been apprehensive about using silicone-based serums. Moisturizers don't seem to sit well on top. But I've never tried with Smooth 365. Do you use it before or after moisturizer?

Shen said...

Hi Connie, i use after moisturizer. :) It's always been my practice to wait and let the moisturizer get absorb before I apply any face primer since it tend to clump my makeup. :) i massage my face while waiting.

when it's too hot, i forgo the moisturizer and straight to sunblock, same thing i do. wait for it to be absorbed. :)

Ooh, now that you mentioned it has silicone, I'm so relieved that I skipped it. I break out with products with silicone.
