I’ve been hearing about the skincare diet a lot the past few months and Venn Skincare gave me the opportunity to try it out with their Age-Reversing All-In-One Concentrate.
The brand offers efficient skincare for the modern lifestyle we are in. They aim to streamline skincare by replacing multiple steps with one product.
The Age-Reversing All-In-One Concentrate uses the brands’ proprietary Concentric Technology. The technology promises to create vehicles with multiple, concentric layers (like an onion) of hydrophilic and hydrophobic bioactives to deliver the product, water-solubilize Compound K (main anti-aging bioactive component of Panax ginseng) and effectively using it as a key ingredient, and hydrate both on the skin surface and internally. The concentrate aims to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, hydrate, firm, brighten, smooth, and soften the skin. It’s cruelty-free and free of fragrance, parabens, silicone, phthalates, mineral oil, sulfates, and color.
This concentrate is meant to be applied after cleansing and replaces your toner, essence, serum, ampoule, moisturizer, cream, and face oil. Granted that’s a lot of products to replace for someone who’s has a maximalists view of skincare. I created my own routine revolving this concentrate by double cleansing then going straight to an active before using this. I do that every other day and still went on as usual on the other days.
At first, I really felt meh about this. However, my hand reached for this more and more as times passed, going to my simplified routine more and more. It feels like an emulsion so I like applying this before a sleeping mask. It leaves a velvet finish that feels a bit thicker but not to the point that it bothers me. It has a nice slip, almost like silk on the skin. It just takes a bit of time to completely dry down but feels really silky on my skin. It has a bit of a medicinal smell but it doesn’t linger. It doesn’t feel blocking or suffocating, you know some products you’ve tried that seems to cover all your pores. It doesn’t feel like that. I actually feel likes it’s going in the skin, like a tall drink of water, nourishing and hydrating my skin. After a couple of months using this, I have noticed its smoothing and softening benefits on my skin. It also helped in keeping my skin plump, clear, and bright.
As for the skincare diet, I think I have way too many skin concerns to tackle and skin issues to prevent to completely veer away from toning, treating, hydrating, and moisturizing but I get the idea. For my oily skin, however, I need hydrating products to complement this as well as actives that will really treat dark spots quicker. For me, this concentrate is a great support for my actives and treatments. I find that this soothes and moisturizes my skin effectively after exfoliating and applying strong acids.
I would recommend this concentrate to those who want to brighten, hydrate their skin and want anti-aging benefits in one product. This is a one and done product for those who don’t want to spend so much time in their skincare routines.
