PETER THOMAS ROTH ANTI-WRINKLE BRIGHTENING KIT

I was in the market for a new moisturizer when I came across this Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Wrinkle Brightening Kit. If you are unfamiliar with the Peter Thomas Roth clinical skincare line, it is AMAZING. The line was created when Peter was unable to find products to accommodate his skin troubles, primarily acne and anti-aging. These days, his products are made for all skin types and concerns. His family owned spa resorts in Hungary during the 19th century. He blends old Hungarian philosophies with innovative 21st century formulas to create an effective clinical skin care line. 

Camu Camu is an Amazonian fruit that has major antioxidant properties. The fruit and its leaves are generally used for medicinal purposes. It's about the same size as a lemon but has 60 TIMES more Vitamin C per serving than an orange. Loaded with Vitamin C, Camu Camu is also full of potassium and other amino acids that improve body functions. 

I went to Sephora with the intention of splurging on a moisturizer when I saw this kit on sale for $62. It was already a good deal (to me) because I know that the CC Cream retails for $48 by itself. The only way that I can survive as a product junkie on a budget is to purchase kits. I get to try more products before I commit to a full size purchase. Sephora is generally great about giving customers samples of products, but sometimes I am not so great about interacting with humans. 

I have to admit that I was nervous about using a product that was associated with brightening. Immediately, I thought about the Philippines and other Asian countries that encourage lightening of the skin. I'm trying to hold my natural tan down since I am slowly decreasing my sun exposure (over the years), I was really not interested in making myself lighter. Yet after 3 months of using this line, I have noticed that skin is brighter but not necessarily whiter. My skin is simply radiating, hehe! 

1. Camu Camu Power C x 30 Vitamin C Brightening Serum

I use this serum twice a day, before I moisturize so that my face really soaks it up. It brightens and balances the skin.  I never realized that my skin tone was actually uneven, until I saw the improvements from using this product! 

2. Camu Camu Power C x 30 Vitamin C Brightening Moisturizer

I'm very non-committal when it comes to moisturizer. I want to try everything that it out there until I find my soul moisturizer.  I have seen the best results with this product. The combination of potent anti-aging peptides and vitamins A & E improve collagen production to make my skin firm and luscious. 

3. Camu Camu Power C x 30 Vitamin C Brightening Sleeping Mask

The suggested usage for this mask is 2-3 times week or daily for intense hydration. My skin is not necessarily dry but this Winter has been harsh, so I find myself using this about 4 times a week. I have started to cut back though. I love the way that it kinda smells like maple syrup. I have definitely noticed an improvement in my fine lines and wrinkles because I have barely been complaining about my frown lines!! 

4. Camu Camu Power C x 30 Vitamin C Complexion Corrector Cream

I looooove this 5-in-1 CC cream. First of all, it's has a tint!! The Medium to Tan color give me a great color  that doesn't require a dusting of bronzer. I've always wanted my tinted moisturizer to also correct my complexion, while protecting my skin from aging AND the sun. Oh yes, it has SPF 30. How proud is Lauren right now? 

Peter Thomas Roth has over 100 products to fit your needs. This is a great line if you are looking to brighten your skin tone while reducing the signs of aging!
