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.
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?
