Tula Skin Care, First look

After trying the Tula Purifying Face Cleanser on a recent trip, I knew I had to learn more about this company. I reached out to Tula and they let me pick any one product I wanted to try! With my skin, I’m lucky enough to rarely experience acne but I have hyperpigmentation and an overall pink complexion. I’m constantly trying new products to combat my splotchy, dull skin. Taking all that into account, I chose the Tula Illuminating Face Serum

After just a few days, a package arrived in my mail box! My first impression was the packaging. I love the calming blue hues and overall, the packaging seems to belong in an upscale spa.

The heavy, frosted glass bottle is probably one of my favorite bottles in my collection. It feels expensive, looks expensive ad certainly draws me into what’s inside!

This creamy serum has a wonderful, fresh scent. Overall, there is absolutely no oily or sticky feeling, just a soft clean finish. The first few times I applied, I felt a slight tightening. It wasn’t uncomfortable in any way, just a slight sign that something must be working. Once absorbed, the serum felt weightless on my skin.

I’m on day 5 of using this great serum and so far, I’m loving it. So, what makes this face serum different from the others on the market? Let’s talk science. Dr. Raj packed this serum full of what she calls her “Probiotic Technology”. This includes “a unique blend of healthy skin essentials, like Probiotic Technology, Nutripeptides, Vitamins A, C, E, Fruit and Vegetable extracts, Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids and more”

If you’re familiar with Probiotics, you might be a little confused. Probiotics are essentially healthy bacterica and yeast used to promote a healthy body. Typically, probiotics are great for your digestive system. More recently, probiotics are being used to treat skin issues caused or made worse by bacteria like acne or rosacea. As a rosacea sufferer, I’m especially excited about the research I’ve read on using probiotics to not only help reduce redness but to also help with the stinging and overall tenderness that comes with rosacea.

Another exciting technology in this serum is nutripeptides. Peptides are chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins in the skin. Essentially, peptides equal protein, more protein in your skin means better collagen products and elasticity. In the long run, this means more youthful skin and less wrinkles! Peptides are big. Neuropeptides are even better! Neuropeptides have the ability to slightly relax the face and almost instantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

I know this is a lot to take in & I’ll be honest, I’m pretty much just geeking out about the exciting combination of technologies tucked into this one little tube. I’ll be using this serum to the last drop, but I wanted to update you all as I go along! Keep up below and you can expect some pictures at 2 weeks, 4 weeks and 6 weeks!

5 days– While I’ve not yet noticed a reduction in redness, I’ve noticed a huge change in my skin’s texture. My skin feels supply, hydrated (without being too oily) and overall softened. I’m still loving the scent and the feel of this serum!
