Review of Artistry Essentials Polishing Scrub and Artistry Skin Refinishing Lotion

Here is a review of other Artistry products that I've tried. The Artistry Essentials Polishing Scrub and Artistry Skin Refinishing Lotion.

Artistry Essential Polishing Scrub

Product Description:

The Polishing Scrub is a new formulation that gently exfoliates the skin. Its refreshing fragrance is a treat for your senses. A transparent blue foaming gel with dual exfoliation beads and a refreshing tangerine-berry fragrance.

I bought this together with the rest of Artistry Balancing set after reading good reviews on this product. The scrub contains hydrogenated jojoba beads and smells nice. The scrub has blue and white spherical beads in transparent gel. I tend to go for scrub with spherical beads because its more gentle compared to harsh scrub like Apricot scrub. It foams well and the scrub is not as harsh to me. I like this scrub but I don't really see any improvement with this product. In fact after I used this scrub more than 2 times a week, this scrub cause some redness on my face from over-exfoliation. The problem is that this scrub doesn't get rid a few dry flakes around my nose. An okay scrub but a bit overprice I think.

Artistry Skin Refinishing Lotion 

Product Description:

Artistry scientists learned that Oat Extract is very effective at increasing cell turnover without acids. Time Defiance Skin Refinishing Lotion contains Sugar and Algae with Oat Extract, all three ingredients act synergistically to dramatically increase  cell turnover.

Time Defiance Skin Refinishing Lotion contains patent-pending specialized Oat Extract and an exclusive Sugar derivative complex and Algae Extract. It also contains Nutrilite-approved green tea extract and exclusive artistry Hydrolipid Matrix.

I was so excited to try this serum because of its best-selling reputation. This is the serum from the Time Defiance line, the anti-ageing line from this brand. And this cause clogged pores and breakout on my face. What a disappointment! The one thing I like about this is the packaging. The luxurious-looking golden cap and the pump. Hygienic and its easy to dispense the serum. One pump is enough to cover the whole face. The smell is okay. The serum has a creamy yellow color. This serum has the typical silicone-y feeling. It absorb well but this make my face so oily and since I broke out from this serum, I stopped.I have high expectation on Artistry but nothing special. Its quite over-price and for the price, I can easily find something better and cheaper than Artistry. So long Artistry!!
