Sometimes Simple is Best! Own Skin Health Lifting Eye Cream and Firming Silk Concentrate

Often simple truly is best when it comes to skincare. Especially if you have sensitive skin! Whenever my skin acts up (either with breaking out or with irritation), I often have to just cut back on my products and streamline to use the most simple routine or products with few ingredients. 

About Own Skin Health:
Own Skin Health is a cruelty-free brand with a new and fresh approach to skincare. This San Francisco-based brand believes that clinically proven and good-for-you skincare is the key to healthy skin. You will not find any harsh chemicals in Own Skincare. Just gentle and scientifically proven ingredients that work!

I tried out two products from the Own Skin Health skin care range: Own Lifting Eye Cream and the Own Silk Concentrate. To find out more about how I like these products, please click "read more" below!


Own Lifting Eye Cream:
I completely adore this eye cream. It is both gentle and soothing (Just be sure to keep from getting it in your eyes or your eyes will sting and tear). It was formulated to brighten skin while firming and hydrating. I just love the feel of this product. Like all Own Skin Health products, this eye cream is formulated with their patented CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid).

My Results:
This Own Lifting Eye Cream has not only smoothed and hydrated my eye area, but also it has really lightened my dark circles! I am quite amazed actually! My eye areas looks great after using this product for a few weeks (morning and night). My fine lines seem to be smoothed as it has plumped my skin.

Own Lifting Eye Cream retails for $23.99.

Own Firming Silk Concentrate:
The Firming Silk Concentrate is a non-greasy and fast absorbing retinol-free anti-aging serum. It is formulated to firm and smooth your skin. The active ingredient is CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid).

My Results:
This serum is extremely gentle! After using it a few weeks, I am noticing that my skin seems more plump and smooth and my fine lines seem diminished. Also, this serum does not seem to be causing an extra breakouts. I can't really speak to this product's "firming" claims as my skin does not really have any "loss of firmness" issues. However, I can tell you that I am very pleased with the look and feel of my skin after using this product for a few weeks. I am really loving this serum!

Wow, the ingredient list is extremely small. There are only 4 ingredients in this product. Yes, 4! I like the idea of a streamlined ingredients list for an anti-aging product. It is rare that you see that! Here they are: Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Coco-Caprylate, Conjugated Linoleic Acid*, Tocopherol.

Own Firming Silk Concentrate retails for $24.99. 

How I use:
I apply this serum in the evenings after cleansing my face. I apply it when my skin is still slightly damp. This allows the product to distribute and sink in better. This product can be used twice a day (I typically just use it 1x per day though). When I do use it in the mornings, I find that my makeup applies nicely after using this. 

Here is the product info directly from Own Skin Health:
Visibly reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles for more vibrant skin. The naturally derived and patented CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) formula in Own Anti-Aging Firming Silk Concentrate works with your body to treat all three layers of skin through a power-packed serum that’s proven to absorb easily without leaving a residue. Own Firming Silk Concentrate works with your own body’s chemistry to reactivate healthy processes and rebuild the skin’s structures for brighter, taut, and genuinely younger-looking skin.
