My Skincare Routine: #EclosBeauty Plant Based Beauty & Giveaway (closed)

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of éclos Skin Care. All opinions are 100% mine.
I've been asked to share my skincare routine quite a bit, and while I'm very diligent about it, it was a real mish mash of random potions and lotions and more or less just getting the job done. As I happily leave my 20's behind I'm finding my skincare needs changing, no longer am I looking to combat oil but my focus now is on anti-aging. I knew it was time for a revamp! I received the éclos Skin Care line as a review sample fully expecting to try it for one week and then go back to what I was using before. But I kept on using the regimen for the past two months and I couldn't be happier with the results, in fact I've shelved all of my other skincare products and made eclos my complete skincare routine.

Full Review and Enter the Giveaway after the cut!

Eclos features Apple Stem Cells extracted from a rare Swiss apple which have shown tremendous ability to stimulate skin stem cells, encouraging aging skin to behave like younger skin. Plant extracts, vitamins, and anti-oxidants combine with the Apple Stem cell technology to help minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and tired skin. The products are all free of  parabens, dyes, sulfates, petro-chemicals, and fragrance making it an excellent choice for a natural approach to skincare.
The Anti-Aging Skin Care Starter kit ($19.99) includes sample sizes of the complete product line & a terry cloth headband.
I cleanse with the Anti-Aging Facial Cleanser Skin Prep morning and night, it removes makeup and residue leaving your skin super soft and glowing. I apply the Cellular Activator Face Serum in the AM before my SPF, it's not only excellent for moisturizing and toning but also makes a great primer for makeup. At night I use the Moisture Therapy Regenerative Cream, a rich and emollient formula that doesn't feel heavy on and provides intense moisture.The Restorative Eye Cream offers firming properties and I've noticed a slight brightening from it. It isn't very moisturizing, so if hydration is what you seek there might be a better option out there. Twice a week I exfoliate with the Instant Radiance Facial Scrub and use the Anti-Aging Skin Renewal Clay Mask. The microdermabrasion exfoliate is wonderful, it gently removes dead skin cells and polishes the skin. The Clay Mask zaps the impurities and dirt right out of your pores and leaves your face feeling super soft and pores tightened.
 My skin issues are minimal, but before I had some break out's on my forehead, visible under eye circles, and my makeup would tend to stick to the dryer areas. After using this regimen for 2 months my skin appears more even in tone and texture, brighter, and feels hydrated. I don't have many wrinkles yet, but I have noticed my forehead lines minimizing and even my chicken pox scar is lessening. While it's not marketed for acne or problematic skin, I've had an almost complete clearing of my skin. Overall there's just a tighter smoother feeling and I don't feel like I have to wear as much face makeup.

With as many product's as I test it's not often I actually stick to one brand, but I couldn't be happier with how my skin is reacting to eclos beauty. I've already went out and bought the full size products. What's great is that it's affordable, most items being under $24.99, and available at drugstore's (walgreens, rite aid, ulta, target) and online retailers.

Skincare, like makeup, is a very individual thing. What works for one person may not for another, but if you happen to want to try these product's for yourself I hope you have success with them too :)
