Put your hands up if you wish you had more time to take care of your skin… If you just put your hands up then you may want to read this post. I’m a mother, I work from home and I’m also a housewife which means time for myself is pretty limited. We’ve also just moved home and to be honest I’m struggling to get into a routine at the moment but one thing I have found really easy to stick to is my new skin care regime.
I’ve been trailing the Nu Skin ageLOC Me skin care system and it’s the one part of my beauty routine that I’ve been able to stick to recently. This system is unique, it provides a personalised daily regimen based on individual preferences and skin care needs. Now you may have noticed there are no bottles, jars or tubes of products on show here. That’s because everything you need is smartly contained in this rather clever device, the ageLOC Me anti-ageing system.
Setting up the Nu Skin ageLOC Me skin care system was very easy. Everything comes packaged beautifully and there is a full instruction manual included. In short all you need to do is pop the cartridges of product into the machine and put the batteries in. When you first order you will receive a set of skin care to be used for 30 days including day and night moisturisers and some serums.
You will then have the opportunity to get your bespoke skin care set once you have taken the online or app survey. Some of the questions include; ethnic group, geographic location, level of exposure to pollution, hours spent in the sun , as well as rating various aspects of your skin (pigmentation, lines etc). You will then be sent a code which you can use online or via the ageLOC Me app to order. There are around 2,000 possible combinations, so it should be possible to find the perfect match for everyone. And you can also retake this assessment at any time for example if your needs change or to adapt to location, season, weather and so on.
HOW DOES IT KNOW WHAT YOU NEED?
When the machine first turns on you need to input the time of day. This is important because the machine needs to know which products to dispense for your day and night routine. I have to say this is such a great idea and I love how hygienic it all is. To dispense the skin care you just need to put your hand under the sensor and the product is dispensed. The serum comes first, and there is no need to rush to the next step when applying it because the device will just wait for you to put your hand under the sensor again to dispense the moisturizer.
THE AGELOC ME REFERENCE SET
As mentioned you do get a reference set to start with. This set includes three serums, one day and one night moisturizer. There doesn’t seem to be a fragrance in them at all, which is great on my sensitive skin. I really like the serums, and I’ve come to realise I used to use way too much serum before using the ageLOC Me device. Which means I used to waste so much product!
The day moisturizer is nice and lightweight, it’s slightly thicker than the night-time moisturizer which I was surprised by but they both sink into the skin nicely. Quite a lot of product comes out for the moisturisers, about 3 pumps which is more than I thought I needed but It now means I can run the product down my neck which is also a step I used to miss out prior to this. The neck can really show off someones age so I’m glad I’ve finally been prompted to take care of that.
Something I need to discuss is the pricing. You can currently get this for £450. You will need to buy the monthly replacement sets which cost around £200. Not cheap but if you want to invest in long-term home regime then this could be for you. Also have a look at your current skin care, price up each product and how much it usually lasts. You may be surprised by how much you actually spend without knowing it.
For me I have found this system to work really well, prior to using this I had on many occasions forgotten to moisturise in the morning if I was having a lazy no-makeup day and I’d also often skip serums. This device has actually encouraged me to keep my skin moisturised and well hydrated and I’m also not wasting any products because it works out how much I need each time.
I haven’t had a chance to try the personalised creams and serums yet but I’m looking forward to ordering those to see if I can reduce some of my fine lines, and dullness. Do let me know if you’d like an update once I’ve tried the bespoke set, I’m more than happy to let you know how I get on as I know this is quite an investment.
Is this something you can see yourself using? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
