OMIC skincare has co-branded with ISISpharma Laboratories to create products that claim to deliver instant results. I was able to try out 4 sample sizes of their products; Rosacea relief Ruoril S: Soothing Lotion, Lighteyes Eye Gel, SPF 50+ and Glyco-A 12% Glycolic Acid Cream. As you all know, I have dark circles under my eyes all the time so I was pretty excited to try the Lighteyes Gel, and I have never had a chemical peel so I was equally as excited to try the Glyco-A Cream.
The Lighteyes Eye Gel is formulated for dark circles. Cha-ching! So this stuff fights signs of aging while boosting circulation and reducing puffiness. The gel itself is “melty” for lack of a better word. I had to shake it pretty well so that when I put it on my finger it didn’t just run off. It’s all gel, it doesn’t have a creamy texture to it at all. I’ve been using it for about a month and haven’t seen too much improvement but it definitely reduces the puffiness. It absorbs really nicely so there isn’t much downtime after you apply it. It has no fragrances, Phenoxyethanol or Parabens so it’s super gentle on your skin.
The Glyco-A 12% Cream is INTENSE to say the least. The only burn I’ve felt on my face is using a toner after exfoliating. This stuff was like double that burn. It’s pretty inconspicuous though in the sense that when you have it on your fingers and you start to apply it there is no burning sensation at all… give it about 45 seconds and you’re like “this is 100% exfoliating my face, WHOA”. When I first used it I splashed my face with cool water because I was caught so off-guard. Then every time after that I welcomed the burn with open arms. Beauty is pain, right ladies? This stuff instantly tightened my skin and make it look more even and refined, dare I even say less wrinkly?
The Ruboril S Soothing Lotion initially didn’t serve much of purpose for me as I don’t have a lot of redness. M does, so before trying it on my hand first, I had him test it out. He came out the bathroom and said that he really liked it. It was silky, absorbed quickly and smelled like oatmeal. When he walked over to me I could see he had sparkles all over his face – HAHA whoopsie! I immediately took the lotion and tested it on the back of my hand. Sure enough, the cream is slightly pigmented and does has a bit of shimmer in it. But his observations were correct, it was silky smooth, absorbed super quick and had a really soothing oatmeal scent (which is known for reducing redness). The lotion was quick to reduce his redness even though it made him all shimmery hehe! Although I don’t have much redness on my face, I loved how this cream had a reflecting quality to it so I used it on my cheeks as a highlighter – love!
Finally, the SPF 50+ Uveblock. This stuff is serious about sun. The label on the tube says Sun Intolerance, and with claiming 50+ SPF, they’re not kidding. 50+ is a little too high for my liking but I gave it a whirl. It’s really light and doesn’t have a sunscreen smell which is shocking to me given that it’s 50+SPF! It also has anti-wrinkle and anti-agining benefits – always a plus! It absorbs really quickly and doesn’t make your pores feel clogged. This is surely something I would use if I knew I was going to in the sun all day.
