Ever get sick of feeling rough skin on your face? I know I’ve been frustrated with it a time or two and, as I’ve aged, I’ve noticed that the changing seasons take a toll on my skin much more now than they did in the past. Mia Mariu is a company known for the gentleness of their mineral makeup and skin care products. I was recently given the opportunity to review part of their skin care line, and chose to review the RestauraCel-C, as it is touted as a gentle alternative to microdermabrasion made specifically for use at home. It comes in a 2 piece set: Refinisher and Thermal Activator.
What are the ingredients in RestauraCel-C?
As we all know, there are certain ingredients that work wonders on the skin. So what are the magical ingredients in Mia Mariu RestauraCel-C? The Refinisher Cream contains Peg-6, Sodium Bicarbonate, Oleth-20, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Silica Silylate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Retinyl Palmitate, and Beta Carotene.
The Thermal Activator contains Water, Lactic Acid, Linoleamidopropyl PG-Dimonium Chloride Phosphate, Propylene Glycol, Ployquaternium-10, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Diazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, and Propylparaben.
Much like the microdermabrasion treatments that you receive at the spa, these products do make your skin more sensitive to the sun and increase the risk of sunburn, so it’s wise to limit your sun exposure when using these products. I limit my own exposure anyway due to sun sensitivities, so I have been especially careful since using these products.
Applying RestauraCel-C is easy. The first step is to ensure that your skin is clean and dry. Next, gently apply the Refinishing cream to the skin. Immediately apply the Thermal Activator by massaging it into the skin in a circular motion without concentrating on any one area. Once you’ve massaged this around your face, then rinse your face thoroughly with warm water. That’s it – you’re done!
The results? Although I didn’t notice a big difference in the lines on my face, I did immediately notice that my skin felt a lot smoother, and my pores looked smaller. I’ve only used the product once at this point, but I do plan to continue using it, so I will update this post with my results over time.
Where can I purchase Mia Mariu RestauraCel-C?
RestauraCel-C can be purchased through any Mia Mariu representative or you cans shop Mia Mariu’s website. The RestauraCel-C set retails for approximately $55.00. As far as I know it is not available elsewhere.
Is Mia Mariu RestauraCel-C recommended?
If you’ve got large pores, fine lines and uneven skin tone, RestauraCel-C may be a good product for you. I have personally been happy with my experience so far and do plan to continue using the product.I wouldn’t recommend this for anyone that works outdoors, tans regularly or is unable to refrain from being exposed to the sun for more than 15 minutes at a time.
