Science Driven Skincare From Calysta Labs

Press Sample


I’ve always tried to take care of my skin but it’s not always easy to find the right products for my sensitive, dry skin. Within the last few years, I become even more passionate about adding new products, like serums, to my routine. For this reason, I’m always up for trying new lines or ingredients that deliver what my skin needs. This time those come from Calysta Labs, a new skincare line driven by science.

About Calysta Labs

Developed by Dr. Hardik Soni, the medical director of Ethos Spa, Skin and Laser Center, Calysta Labs delivers powerful skincare without the irritation. The line uses scientifically proven ingredients to help make skin look its most beautiful.

Calysta Labs was kind enough to send me two of their products to try out, the Illuminating Anti-Aging Serum, $69, and the Revitalizing Moisturizer, $45. After trying both products out for a few weeks, I’m happy to share how they worked for my skin.

Illuminating Anti-Aging Serum

Calysta Labs Anti-Aging Serum

A lightweight but powerful combination of hydroxyacid, retinol and antioxidants helps even skin’s tone and texture, while also treating blemishes and dark spots, boosting all-over brightness, and helping reduce the appearance of fine lines.”

Of the two products I tried, the Illuminating Anti-Aging Serum is my favorite. Before I even began my trial, I knew my skin was going to react well to this product. I especially enjoy that the first ingredient is like Aloe, instead of water. This means my skin gets more hydrating benefits than it does from other serums. Follow that up with Rose, Coconut and Jojoba oil, and you have a serum that is soothing and helps improve radiance.

It is a little intense at first, which I suspected would be the case from reading the label. Even though I could feel it penetrating my skin, it never caused any reactions. This is exactly what I need from a serum. My dry skin does have a more radiant appearance and even skin tone. I can’t wait to see even more changes once the easy to use pump bottle is finished.

Revitalizing Moisturizer

Calysta Labs Revitalizing Moisturizer

“A light, silky moisturizer quenches thirsty skin and revitalizes dull patches without clogging pores or feeling heavy. Good for all skin types, including oily skin”.

The second product I tried out from Calysta Labs is the Revitalizing Moisturizer. I have mixed feelings about this moisturizer. I really like the lightweight formula and how well it melts into my skin. It’s the perfect moisturizer to use during the day when you want something less intense.

Unfortunately, I don’t feel like it provides enough hydration for my very dry skin. I could only use this moisturizer during the day and even then, I noticed my skin didn’t look hydrated enough. As a result, I had to switch to a thicker, more emollient product at night. When I did try using the Revitalizing Moisturizer at night and during the day, the drier parts of my skin would itch. This is always a sign for me that my skin needs something stronger.

I think the Calysta Labs Revitalizing Moisturizer would work better on normal, combo, or oily skin. Hopefully, the brand will come out with more products that target dry skin specifically. I know I would be up for trying them out as well.
