After the absolute success of trying out Hydraluron (which I have finished a tube off, and have some waiting in the wings and ready to go), I felt confident about trying out Indeed Labs products, so today, I'll be discussing a couple of other things from them, namely Retinol Reface and Pepta-Bright!
What is Pepta-Bright? Marketed as powerful serum packed with 7 active ingredients, this is meant to "improve the appearance of age spots, hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone". This is also supposed to help "reduce the intensity of dark spots, while promoting overall skin clarity and brightness".
Those are a lot of claims in one little tube - does it live up to it? Short answer - yes! I've been using this steadily for the last 3 weeks, and I've noticed a very mild lightening of the freckles on my skin. Long yes - still yes, but I wish it worked faster! I'm curious as to how my skin will look at the end of using this tube.
This comes out as a white lotion, and is thicker than I would have expected. It does, however, sink into the skin quite easily. This is applied twice daily, and I put it on before I place moisturiser on my skin.
The other thing to keep in mind is that I've heard of people using this for acne scars, and as someone who has been blessed with generally good skin, this isn't something I've had to use it for, but might be good to know for those who are interested in purchasing this. I do, however, have one little chicken pox scar from being a foolish kid, and while the skin will never look the same, it's actually brilliant how much less noticeable it is.
This 30ml tube retails for $34.99, and can be found in a number of different pharmacies, including Priceline.
Retinol Reface is another product by Indeed Labs, and this is supposed to give you softer and smoother skin and help decrease the appearance of crow's feet, fine lines and wrinkles.
I find that my face tends to tingle a little after using this, which apparently isn't an unusual side effect. This contains 3 forms of retinol, and you really need to use a high SPF moisturiser during the day when you're putting this on at night.
This is quite creamy, and to me, it doesn't have a noticeable scent, which is great for those who are a little sensitive to it. Overall, I haven't really noticed much of a difference to my skin, but perhaps, it's because I don't really have fine lines or wrinkles just yet, or those that are really noticeable, anyway. However, I'm going to keep giving it a go, and see how it all works out at the end of using this!
This is a little 30ml pump tube that makes it hygienic to use. This also retails for $34.99.
Have you tried either of them before? Would you be interested in one product over the other?
