CeraVe Skin Renewing Line

CeraVe Skin Renewing Line Gel Oil & Day Cream

Press Sample

A little over a month ago, as I was watching Gothamista on YouTube, I discovered a new skincare routine known as the 7 Skin Method. Developed in Asia, this method involves applying 7 layers of a hydrating toner to your face before the rest of your skin care. The result, is glowing, hydrated skin. For me, the transformation has been incredible. My skin has never felt so soft and looked so hydrated. It looks and feels even better when I pair the 7 Skin Method with products from the CeraVe Skin Renewing Line, including the Gel Oil and Day Cream ($20-$25 each).

More on the 7 Skin Method

As I mentioned above, the 7 Skin Method involves applying seven layers of an alcohol-free, hydrating toner to your skin after cleansing. If doing this seven times seems like a lot, it is, but you can start off small. When I first began using the method I only “patted on” three layers of toner. I’ve since worked up to “patting on” seven, which I do only at night. In the morning, I use a hydrating facial mist before applying my serum, eye cream, and moisturizer.

I don’t know who came up with the 7 Skin Method, but I’d like to give them a big ‘ole kiss on the mouth. My skin has never felt or looked so amazing. It is plumper, incredibly hydrated, and more radiant. My skincare products even work better and my makeup applies so much smoother. Even though it’s a lot of work, it’s extremely worth it. If I slack off for more than a couple of days I can absolutely feel the dryness coming back.

CeraVe Skin Renewing Line

A couple of other products that have been helping my skin look all a glow come from the CeraVe Skin Renewing Line. They include the Gel Oil and Day Cream. I use the Gel Oil in the morning and at night, and the Day Cream in the morning.

CeraVe Skin Renewing Line Gel Oil

The CeraVe Renewing Gel Oil, 1.0 fL oz., is designed to give your skin a ceramide boost. In other words, it intensely hydrates and instantly improves skin radiance. The Gel Oil is also fragrance-free and non-comedogenic so it won’t irritate sensitive skin.

I really love the thick gel texture. I feel like it does an amazing job coating and penetrating my skin with needed hydration. It also doesn’t leave a sticky residue or cause my makeup to break down.

CeraVe Skin Renewing Line Day Cream

The CeraVe Renewing Day Cream, 1.76 oz., is formulated with encapsulated retinol and a broad-spectrum SPF of 30. The MVE technology used to deliver the cream helps to provide a controlled release of hydration for 24 hours. It also serves to ensure the retinol doesn’t irritate the skin while working to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. And like the skin oil, the day cream is also non-comedogenic.

I like that this moisturizer features both a sunscreen and a retinol. It’s reassuring to know my skin is being protected from the sun while also getting the benefits of retinol. It has a nice light scent and lightweight formulation, which is what I’m looking for in a day moisturizer. I also find it absorbs easily into my skin and doesn’t cause my makeup to breakdown throughout the day.

CeraVe Skin Renewing Line Swatches

Overall: If you’re looking to add a boost your skin’s radiance, I highly recommend giving the 7 Skin Method and the CeraVe Renewing Line a try. The 7 Skin Method will help improve the look and feel of your skin, as well as the effectiveness of your skin care. The CeraVe Renewing Line will help you maintain and restore your skin’s natural protective barrier, improve hydration, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. After testing out Gel Oil and Day Cream, I’m curious to give the Cream Serum and Night Cream a try as well.
