I'm in love with H20 plus {a review}

When I was younger there used to be an H20 store in our mall. It was downstairs, near the elevator and I would always save my babysitting money to spend there. I remember absolutely loving the body care products, especially the Milk Hand & Nail Cream. I have fond memories of Friday nights at the mall, with my friends, and it always included a stop at the H20 store.

Fast forward several years, and now I'm noticing the amazing skincare by one of my favorite brands. The fabulous people at H20 Plus were sweet enough to send me a bunch of products targeted to my combination/acne prone skin that were also anti-aging, because I'd much rather do my best now to prevent sun damage and wrinkles than really pay for it later.  For the last month+ I have been using the Aqualibrium® Marine Cleansing GelSea Results Daily Defense SerumFace Oasis™ Shine-Neutralizing Gel and the Sea Results Eye Mender Plus every single day. (On a side note, I need to ask - are you using an eye cream?? If not, get on it, girlfriend! An eye cream is the best defense to prevent wrinkles and age spots around your eyes. It will also help your makeup go on smoothly, and will help to keep an overall younger, more refreshed appearance.) I also use the Aqualibrium® Cleansing Face Wipes every night to take off my makeup, the Aqualibrium® Lip Mender is the last thing I put on before I go to bed every night, and I've been using the Aqualibrium Sea Mineral Mud Mask about once a week.

I have to say, I'm always nervous to start a whole new skincare line. Working in the makeup industry, I had access to lots of different brands, but for the most part stuck to one until it stopped working. For me, my skin goes through a bit of a "purging" stage when I start a new skincare line, or sometimes even a new foundation, and let's face it - breakouts aren't fun. BUT, I am so thrilled that my skin experience no new breakouts of purging once I started using the H20 Plus line. It cleared existing breakouts, smoothed my skin, and I've noticed the last bits of some melasma fading away. I couldn't be more thrilled with the line! The next things on my to-try list are definitely the Sea Results Deep Sleep Recovery Cream, the Waterwhite Advanced™ Brightening Hydrator Cream and the Aquafirm+ Weekly Active Foam Mask (anyone else LOVE a good at-home face mask??)

Big, HUG thank you to the fabulous girls at H20 Plus (I'm talking to YOU, Amanda!) for letting me try this amazing line. I am HOOKED!!

What skincare are you using?? Do you tend to stick to all one brand, or do you mix and match? I'd love to know what's working for you!

@Kristin - full disclosure, I do not have flawless skin! (I wish) I will say, though, it is so much better than it used to be. I am really loving this line!! I hope it works for you too.
