Product Review: Lexli Skin Care is a Winner!

by Bionic Beauty on September 25, 2009 · 8 comments

I recently got the chance to try Lexli Skincare – a brand new to me. So while you may not have heard of them before, Lexli is making waves! They were recently in the Emmy Awards Style Lounge and are getting rave reviews in magazines and online.

Their skin care team even has a certified esthetician on staff to help you decide the best regimen for you. Since I am combination oily/dry skin, super-sensitive, and can be prone to sun damage (since I’m fair and have melasma flareups), my recommended routine was: Aloe-based Cleansing Lotion and Aloe-based Day Moisturizer with SPF 15 (for normal to dry skin) for morning; Aloe-based Cleansing Lotion, followed by the AloeGlyC Renewing Exfoliant, then the Aloe-based Night Moisturizer for evening.

Bionic Beauty reviews Lexli Skin Care

I love their simple approach. You pick a 4 step regimen that’s right for your skin and goals- and you’re done.
Here’s one of my favorite examples of skin care simplicity from their site:

“Dr. Abdullah – Do you think eye creams are necessary?
No. Eye creams are marketing ploys for you to buy multiple bottles of product. The eyelid skin is the same as the skin on your cheeks. Skin around the eyes should be treated like the rest of the skin on the face. However, be sure to avoid getting any product into your eye.

As the loyal Bionic Beauty readers know, I’m very picky in my skin care. I have uber-sensitive skin and want something that’s going to improve the look, feel, texture. I’m not just looking for maintenance. I look for the stand-out: the bright red dress in a sea of black. And Lexli was just that- a stand out. My pores were smaller, skin firmer and my breakouts cleared! My thin under-eye skin also plumped up rather quickly which helped hide my under eye darkness. Overall, I was able to just get away with a bit of concealer and my normal eye makeup after about two weeks!

I also love the fact that all Lexli Skincare products use Aloe as their main ingredient, instead of water. Your skin absorbs aloe much easier than it does water- hence, more moisture benefits and better delivery of the active ingredients!

The Lexli Cleansing Lotion ($24 for a 4 ounce pump bottle) is my new favorite face wash. It’s just amazing- no dryness, but clears my pores, removes my makeup, and the contaminants of the day. I love it!

Aloe-based Day Moisturizer with SPF 15 (for normal to dry skin), $58 for a 4oz pump bottle. This is one of the few SPF/sunscreen lotions that I can use daily. It doesn’t break me out, and it’s not greasy so my makeup doesn’t slip off!

The AloeGlyC Renewing Exfoliant is a bit pricey ($118 for a 1 ounce jar), but you only need a dab. Please don’t overuse it. The jar will last you a LONG time. At least 6 months in my estimation. I’ve hardly put a dent in mine.

Lexli’s Aloe-based Night Moisturizer ($46 for 1.6 oz jar) is another product that you only need a tiny amount for your entire face. I dip my pinky in and then dot it around my face and blend in. It does the moisture job perfectly, but doesn’t feel heavy – my skin can still breathe.

You can check out all the rest of their products (even sorted by skin type) at Lexli.com. Lexli Skin Care is definitely a Bionic Buy! And they have a complete money back guarantee! You can’t ask for more than that, right?

**Stay tuned… because this weekend, you’re going to have a chance to win a Lexli Starter Kit!!

OMGosh! I am so going to have to try this when I win the lottery! I have the exact same skin problems, for the most part and I need something that will help! I have tried Avon,MK and some other stuff without results!

Hi Jami,

Glad the Lexli products worked for you! I just wanted to comment on the AloeGlyC. Because of the low pH of the AloeGlyC, it is close to a Dr. office chemical peel, in which you usually spend at least $120+ for just one peel. The AloeGlyC should be used twice a day everyday & should last a month. So everytime you apply the AloeGlyC to your face, you are giving yourself a medical grade peel for less than $4 a day with the same results. You must use around a nickel size amount of product to get enough acid to break down the dead skin cells and stimulate cell renewal and collagen production in the dermis. If you use a dab, you won’t see results for months. :)

I went to the Lexli skin web site to look at the products. They really do look like great products. Thanks for the great review. I was interested that Dr.Abdullah doesn’t think eye creams are necessary. I was always told that the eye area is the most sensitive area on the face. Is that a fallacy?

Hi Susan,
In my opinion, it really depends on the skin care you are using on whether you should have an eye cream or not. The short answer is yes- the eye area is the most delicate skin on your face. With Lexli though, I’ve had no problem using their night cream on my eyes, or when I want extra moisture their Intensive Moisture Treatment. I sometimes pat either one overtop of my concealer and mineral makeup. It helps prevent lines and dryness through the day.

Before using the AloeGlyC around your eye area, I suggest getting your face used to it first. Depending on how sensitive your face skin is, it may take a few days or a week. I talked with Jessica at Lexli before I started using their products since my skin is super-sensitive. She suggested I mix a bit of AloeGlyC with their Night Moisturizer and then apply to my face. I did these for a few weeks until I was all adjusted, now I use it straight. It’s fine for most people, but I just have very picky skin. ;)

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have more questions, if so, post them here!
Best,
Jami

I have heard so much about the Lexli products but would just like to try before investing any more money in skin care products. If I had all the money back on skin care that doesn’t deliver I would be rich. If they really work I would be more than happy to purchase the products! how do you get to to try the 30 day trial?
