Can you please tell me if Riversol skincare products are good for sensitive skin. Thank you Ann.
Hi Ann – please see the short answers also. Skincare products are expensive, hard to return, and one key to skin health, beauty, and aging prevention over our lifetime. When I think of all the money wasted on various products over the years…well…let’s not any of us go there. 🙂 We’ll look to the future instead, and here are some tips to do things more cost effectively in 2023.
5 ways to get the most cost/benefit from your skincare products in 2023:
- Don’t click! Wait. Every time we’re frustrated with our skin, see a product, and it promises us great skin forever, just wait. Sure…it will have a beautiful photo with it, but that doesn’t mean it works.
- Is this really a miracle product. No! In the last 3 decades, there have been about 4 true advances, and even those benefit us over years not months usually. The key ones are daily high zinc sunscreen, retinoids (Vit A), topical Vitamin C, and growth factors. But even those don’t make us look instantly younger. If it’s truly a miracle, wait 3-6 months, and see if the buzz gets stronger, and has data behind it.
- Find your basics. Find the cleanser that works for you and stay with it. Then… in the morning add an antioxidant, moisturizer (try our Lightweight Moisturizer with a ton of growth factors) and sunscreen. At night use your growth factor serum, moisturizer, retinol or tretinoin, and eye cream. Get these solid for 3-6 months. Then you can try adding one product at a time for 4-8 weeks to see if it makes a difference.
- Shop the sales. Our site and others often do promotions for holidays. You can save 10-20% usually that way.
- Buy the larger sizes of products you like. This saves a ton of money. It always surprises me when people don’t do this. For example…our hero product Eye Rescue is $89 for the 0.05 oz size and $139 for the 1.0 oz size. You just saved $39 by buying the larger size.
* Ann – I would avoid the line of skincare you mentioned. Reading the ingredients for their Day Cream and a number of other products, they are full of propylene glycol, which is on the top 20 allergen list for skin care product. It’s interesting that the line doesn’t say what they are avoiding to make it hypoallergenic. In this case, our MadisonMD products are better.
Hope this helps,
