And then, there was a bit of nostalgia. I am old enough to actually remember when Pan Am was in service, and I still have one of my Grampie’s Pan Am suitcases (still in fantastic condition) from way back when. It’s so much fun to see some of these retro items come back! Until you remember how old you are. *side eying life*

Review: My Professional Skin Care

*I was sent these products from My Professional Skin Care.

Well, hello there! Long time, no see! You know that I absolutely love skincare products, and when I was contacted by My Professional Skin Care (myprosc.com) about sending a few of the products out, of course I was on board! I want to send a thank you to Diana for the opportunity to try out this line! This is a company based out of Israel, and with over 20 years of research and development put into their products, the seal of approval from dermatologists and surgeons in the country, as well as the ingredients used and quality control standards, I felt really comfortable with trying out these products. I was sent the Rejuvenation Face Cream Step 1, Tzalakton for fading scars, and the Margior cream.

I decided to start out with one product, and then incorporate another, until I was using all three. The first product that I used was the Rejuvenation Face Cream Step 1. According to the website:

“This intensive night cream powered by lactic, glycolic and salicylic acids, which are known to visibly rejuvenate your skin, increase firmness and elasticity, reduce skin sagging and lines and wrinkles appearance for a morning awakening to a stronger and younger looking skin. 

This scientifically advanced formula deeply hydrates, rejuvenates and helps achieve a firmer, smoother, brighter, luminous and overall younger-looking skin while delivering ultimate protection against toxins and free radicals.”

I have mostly been using this cream at night after cleansing my face. I have occasionally used it in the morning as well, as it can be used in the AM and PM. I have to say that I really do like this product. When I use it at night, I wake up in the morning with glowing skin, which is always, ALWAYS a plus in my book. I’ve noticed that my skin looks hydrated, which I love, as sometimes the moisture gets sucked right out of my skin at night, which is amazing, as my skin is super oily. I’ve clearly been doing something wrong. But I’ve been doing something right by using this cream! This is a product that I want to continue using, especially during the summer (super humid) and winter (super dry) months. Also, I liked that the website mentions that this product is also suitable for Asian and dark skin tones. The fact that the company took the time to test this out on different skin tones and make this statement was absolutely appreciated.

The second product that I incorporated was the Tzalakton, which was recommended to me when I mentioned that I deal with some hyperpigmentation. The website states:

“Tzalakton is a Perfect Treatment’s flagship product ─ a revolutionary preparation that helps to reduce the appearance of scars, caused by  multiple sources: burns, keloids, pimples and residual marks, post acne, chicken pox, smallpox, sun damage, marks from hair transplants, signs of skin exfoliation (scrubs), laser treatments, surgery and more. It also improves the appearance of blotches, freckles, and hue build-up (melanin).

Visible results after just a few weeks of proper use.

This preparation is non-invasive, does not operate through peeling, does not burn or sting. Also suitable for children.”

The website states that you can see results after a few weeks. I saw results after a few days. It’s not that it was completely removed in days, but there was such a visible difference that it kind of shocked me. I wasn’t ready! I now understand why this is the company’s flagship product – they have bragging rights on this one, for sure. However, as with anything else, results will vary with this product. It will depend on the severity of the issue that you are using it for, the amount of time that you wear the product before rinsing it off, and the length of time that you are using it for. For me, I use it every two or three days, and I only leave it on for 30 minutes. However, according to the instructions, you can leave it on for up to three hours. I have a few surgery scars from when my gallbladder was removed a few years ago that I want to try this on, and my mom wants to try it on a scar that she has from a stereotactic breast biopsy. Given the results that I’ve seen on my face in such a short amount of time, I’m expecting to see good results on these areas as well!

The final product was the Margior cream. The website states:

“Margior soothes and restore moisture levels for a smoother and healthy skin appearance. Margi-Or meets all skin needs for moisture and nourishment. Can be applied as a soothing mask.

Powered by Lavender oil which is known for it’s ability to relieve itching, decongest irritated areas, thereby accelerating the healing process. it also contains powerful antioxidants that fight harmful effects of pollutants on the skin. The Lavender oil is known for it’s burn healing properties. In addition, lavender oil also acts as a pain reliever.

Margior is enriched by Tocopherol – Vitamin E derivative that acts as a strong antioxidant.

Formulated without artificial fragrances and colors.”

This is the one product that I had concerns about, only because one of the ingredients is Lavender oil…and I am allergic to lavender on some parts of my body. I absolutely cannot use anything with lavender on the back of my neck, wrists, legs (thigh area), or on my scalp. And it does something different in each area. Scalp area = rash, wrists = burning sensation, neck and legs = actual burns. So you can see why I have been avoiding using products with lavender on my face. But I decided to take one for the team this time, because I really wanted to try this product. Especially as it is recommended for use after both the Rejuvenation Cream and the Tzalakton. I wanted these products to work as optimally as possible. So I decided to try the Margior on my jaw line and just behind my ear to see if there would be any reaction. And guess what? No issues whatsoever. Guess who is slathering this all over her face? *points to myself!* The soothing/cooling/moisturizing effect with this product is absolutely real, and you definitely smell the lavender in this product. It is an absolutely lovely product, and I’m glad that I was able to try it out with no issues.

Product prices as of 6/12/16:

Rejuvenation Face Cream Step 1 = $79.00

Tzalakton (sold with the Margior cream) = $129.00

Margior (by itself) = $69.00

(The company ships worldwide as well)

I’m not the kind of person to say that I liked a product when I didn’t, and I believe in being respectfully honest about it. With that being said, I have really enjoyed using these products, and I can see them being some of my staple products from here on out. For me, they did what they claimed, and I am happy that they have worked out for me. If you are interested in trying any of the products,please go and check them out at myprosc.com
