Say Hello To Young and Vibrant Skin | Park Avenue Prescription | Review + Giveaway

*Giveaway is now closed *

Let's face it, we've all been at war at some point in time with the appearance of our skin. Whether it was just a phase ( i.e. those brutal acne filled teenage years ) or an ongoing battle that you're still trying to conquer. If you're anything like me, the mission to find quality skincare products is seemingly never-ending. And that's mainly because as we gradually change so does our skin. So for me, the only option is to try and stay two steps ahead.

Being a woman in my * cringes * late twenties, I can't even express how important it is to me to have fresh, vibrant and youthful looking skin. While my skin is still pretty youthful, I also have a few problematic areas that I'm consistently trying to keep under control. Which is why I'm always in search of quality products that will help me do just that.

The Sadick Dermatology Group has recently launched a new and innovative skincare line called Park Avenue Prescription. It's designed with three products that are formulated to take the guess work out of caring for your skin.

The starter kit includes:

AM Protection Cream – a blend of anti-oxidants and amino acids that provide 24-hour hydration, broad UVA protection (SPF 20), detoxification, and defense against collagen breakdown, while leaving skin with an instantly improved appearance.

PM Reversal Serum– a highly potent cocktail of peptides, retinols, and AHAs to stimulate natural collagen production, enhance cellular turnover, and decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Improves the turgor and tension of the skin as well as skin softness and smoothness.

PM Rejuvenation Cream – a calming and relaxing cream with pigment and redness fighting agents targeting melanin (melasma, age spots) and hemoglobin (redness, irritation, rosacea) to reduce inflammation and dark spots while hydrating skin and improving overall skin tone.

Glow: The first thing I liked off top is that each of these creams are practically scentless. I've used a lot of creams & products in the past that don't exactly have pleasant scents and I'm not a huge fan of those. I also like that the formula of both creams and the serum is really lightweight, it doesn't feel heavy on my skin at all, which is a plus especially since I have excessively oily skin.

Glare: The only downside is that it is a little pricey. The kit retails for about $70. The kit is a one month supply but I'm almost willing to estimate that it could last a little longer because you don't really need a lot of the product. But you also have to account for whether or not you're using it every single day, which is recommended.

Would I Recommend It? Honestly it's too soon to say, because I've only used it for about a week and a half now and I'm still testing my results. The product does indicate that on average it takes about 20 days ( or 4 weeks ) to notice visible signs of improvement. So we shall see! :o)

Overall Glam: There's just always that little bit of skepticism lingering around when I hear the word " anti-aging". I think it's because I instantly think of products for wrinkles :-/ then I think about old people, then I want to cry. Ok, maybe that's going a little too far lol but I want to emphasize for those who may think like me, that anti-aging doesn't solely consist of wrinkles!! These products are also formulated to work on keeping your skin smooth and The Rejuvenation Cream helps pigmentation and discoloration which is one of my main problems!

Park Avenue Prescription will be the first skincare kit at Sephora to feature exclusive QR code technology on the packaging and in-store displays. Smart phone users will be able to snap a picture of these “codes” to immediately view a video of the experts behind the brand giving a comprehensive and in-depth product training and using specially created animation to explain the benefits of the products.

Sadick Dermatology Group Park Avenue Prescription starter kit is $70 and will be available July 2011 at Sephora and Sephora.com. It is currently available at www.sadickdermatologygroup.com
