I’m pretty skeptical when it comes to skin products. My skin has gone through a lot after hormones, cystic acne, accutane and now repairing all that damage. And every day I’m doing something to help that process. I see an esthetician monthly, I use a derma roller to help with the icepick scarring, and I use different acids and serums to help improve the texture and to hopefully age a little more gracefully. So when Tula reached out to me to try out their products, I was a little hesitant. I’ve had great experience with the products I’ve used so far (and shared in previous posts on the blog) and wasn’t sure if I needed to use anything else. But I decided to give it and a try and I am so pumped I did! I’m seriously LOVING the Tula products I’ve been using daily and I’ve seen the difference in my skin in just a few short months!
To give a little background about Tula, their mission is, “to help women feel more balanced, beautiful, and confident through our products and our community.” Tula products are different because they use a probiotic technology in their products to naturally balance and boost the health of the skin. If you think about why we take probiotics most of the time, it’s to balance out our gut bacteria to ensure it’s healthiest state. Well Tula does the same for your skin by leaving your skin more hydrated, radiant, and more resistant to damage in the future. By using probiotics such as blueberry, turmeric, flaxseed, white tea, chicory root, vitamin A, C and E in their products, you are able to stimulate the production of defense cells that restore your skin’s natural balance. Not only does this help your skin look healthy, young, and clear, but it also decreases sensitivity, redness and inflammation.
And that was exactly what I noticed when I started using Tula! Every morning that I woke up after using Tula, my skin felt soft, extremely hydrated and the redness that I had experiencing for years had completely gone away. And the dryness and darkness that I had under my eyes…gone!! I seriously wake up looking more refreshed than when I went to bed. Not even kidding you. And this happened in just one week. Now it’s been probably 3 months of using Tula and every morning my skin feels softer and softer and I couldn’t be happier. Now every night and every day, I always use my Tula products because I can’t get over what a difference they’ve made it my skin.
So Tula has a ton of different products so I wanted to walk you through the ones I use myself and what they have done for my skin. If you’re reading this soon after I post it, I’m doing a little instagram story talking about how I use each product at night and in the morning. But if you missed that, not to worry, I’ll walk you through it here! Let’s start with the nightly routine! After removing my makeup with makeup remove or pads, I then cleanse my face with their Purifying Face Cleanser. This cleanser is a different consistency than most cleansers because it’s a gel. The gel doesn’t strip the skin of moisture so your face stays hydrated even after it’s dry. Not every day, but probably once a week or so, I will then use exfoliating treatment mask for a little extra exfoliation of the skin. I’m not a huge mask person but if my face is feeling a little dry or sketchy from a weekend outside, it’s the person way to clean up for the week!
After the cleanser, I use the Multi-Spectrum Eye Renewal Serum under my eyes. I think this is one of the main keys to why I wake up looking more refreshed and why the color under my eyes has improved. This serum relaxes wrinkles “de-puffs” the under eye area so then you don’t have people coming up to your at work telling you how tired you look. It’s pretty awesome. It has a botox-like peptide complex that specifically targets fine lines and wrinkles and the cooling metal applicator gives you the perfect amount for your eyes every time. You can use this morning or night but I usually just use it at night! Next I put on one of my favorite products, their Multi-Spectrum Overnight Skin Rescue Treatment. This product coats your face and protects it throughout the night, so you wake up with more hydrated and healthier looking skin. I’m actually feeling my face right now and it still feel coated and smooth from using it last night. This stuff is magic! And lastly, I rub on their thick layer of their Advanced Neck Cream all over my neck and onto my chest. This stuff almost feels like body butter. I just recently started using this product because I have another neck cream I love, but my neck already feels more hydrated and I’m loving it!
Now fast forward to the morning, I use the Purifying Face Cleanser once again and pat my skin dry. Then I use the Revitalizing Eye Cream for a little extra hydration under the eyes and next I move on to two of my favorite products – the Volume Defense Deep Wrinkle Serum and the Illuminating Serum. So let’s get one thing straight, I’m a firm believer in hydration, botox, and lasers for deep wrinkles and I do all of those things to help keep the wrinkles from setting in. So I can’t speak to this Deep Wrinkle Serum just simply getting rid of my wrinkles because I’m also doing other things in the meantime to help with that. BUT I believe in a little extra help so I use this daily. But the Illuminating Serum I can absolutely attest to. It was the first Tula product that I used and became obsessed with because your skin seriously glows the second you put it on! And the more you use it, the more radiant your skin looks. It’s seriously an amazing product!
And that’s that! If I’m not putting on makeup that day, I use an SPF on top of everything. But if I am wearing makeup, I skip that since my tinted moisturizer has SPF in it. And I also use an SPF setting spray on top of everything to protect the skin just a little more. And that’s it! I seriously LOVE these Tula products and I’m so glad I tried them out because my skin continues to look better! And if you’re not ready to jump in with all their products, they have a handful of kits for you to try out beforehand, with products that are all travel size! Here’s a quick rundown of all the products I talked about above!
