Tula Probiotic Skin Care: New Beauty Breakthrough
I’ve been sold on the benefits of taking high quality probiotic capsules daily, but I only recently became aware that topical probiotics (in yogurt, for example) have been shown to help clear skin of acne and decrease skin sensitivity, redness and inflammation.
To achieve these benefits, you could, of course, simply apply yogurt which contains live and active cultures (like Activia) to your face.
QVC sent me a complimentary sample of the Tula Probiotic Skincare Discovery Collection (sells for $49.95) to try. This travel-friendly kit consists of small sizes of Purifying Face Cleanser, Illuminating Face Serum, Hydrating Day and Night Cream and Revitalizing Eye Cream.
Ingredients include rice proteins; vitamins A, C and E; fruit extracts and omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids, as well as a complex that includes yogurt extract, green tea extract and blueberry extract.
The promise: To help boost dull-looking skin, cleanse pores, nourish skin and help to fight free radicals.
I used all the products, following directions to first wash my face with TULA’s Purifying Face Cleanser and pat dry with a clean towel. Next I applied a dime-sized amount of Illuminating Face Serum over my face, followed by a thin layer of Hydrating Day and Night Cream. Finally I patted a small amount of Revitalizing Eye Cream on the skin around my eyes.
I found all the products to have a light and very appealing consistency. Used in the morning, the cleanser worked gently and thoroughly. The serum was absorbed quickly and left the skin feeling smooth and silky. My only complaint with this product had to do with packaging; the dispenser stopped working while there was still serum in the bottle, so it was necessary to use my fingers to access the remainder. The hydrating cream was light but effective. The eye cream was a favorite; even in summer heat, it did not get into my eyes and cause irritation.
All in all, I think this is a worthy line, especially for anyone with sensitive skin. It does a good job of keeping skin fresh and smooth and is pleasant to use.
