UPDATED: Elysée Two Week Update and Final One Month Update

Elysée "Fab 5" Core Essentials Kit  
Two Week Update

As Promised, I am going to update you on how I am liking my Elysée "Fab 5" Core Essentials Kit. I have now been using the kit in its entirety for 17 days. To see a complete description of the kit, see my March 4th Elysée "Fab 5" Blog Post.

I have to say that I am really liking the products. I am still using the products exactly as I described in my first post. I use them in the morning and in the evening. I plan on using the kit until the end of March. At that point, I will decide what products I will continue and integrate into my previous skin care regimen. I had always wanted to try this brand and I thought this kit was the perfect way to try it and to get to know the products. I am really liking the serums and the moisturizer. In fact, I am about out of the moisturizer, so that unfortunately won't be making it until the end of March. I am a bit heavy handed when it comes to moisturizer, especially in harsh winters.

So far, I definitely feel more firmer tighter skin. I also feel that my nasolabial folds are a bit more plumper, so they are not as visible. I am just beginning to get lines, so I do not have many lines yet. But I strongly believe in starting to use anti-aging products early to ward off lines and wrinkles. I am really hoping that these products in time will help with the few lines that I do have and the ones that will inevitably come.

My favorite standout product so far is the Firmance™ Pycnogenol®  Firming Serum.  It is an antioxidant rich firming concentrate. Pycnogenol® is one of the most powerful antioxidants on the market and research has shown it to be twenty times more powerful than Vitamin C and fifty times more powerful than Vitamin E. It was shown to be dramatically more effective than Vitamin C, E, Lipoic Acid and Grapeseed. This lightweight serum is in a Hyaluronic Acid base and is instantly absorbed into the skin. Once absorbed into the skin, it will provide an instant hydration boost to revitalize dry skin. The serum is designed to address visible sings of aging by improving the skins surface resulting in a more younger, radiant looking complexion. The complexion will appear brighter and more luminous.

I will update my final review at the end of March.

Final 1 Month Review

Sorry if anyone was waiting for this Final Review and it is a bit late. I am not usually late with post reviews, so I apologize. I had finished my review of these product and used them for the entire month of March as promised and thought I had posted my final thoughts. I definitely like the Elysee brand and the products that came in the "Fab 5" Core Essentials Kit. My Favorite Serum was and still is the Firmance™ Pycnogenol®  Firming Serum. I have more detailed descriptions of this serum and the kit in my March 4th Elysée "Fab 5" Blog Post.

I still have some of the product left in my serum bottles so they would absolutely last around two months. I am currently reviewing other products but I will go back to them to finish them up. I am also excited to see if I get the same results when I go back to them..:) The one product that I plan on ordering as soon as possible that came in the kit that I ran out of around the 2 week mark is the Moisturizer. It was very moisturising and I could feel an immediate firmness when wearing it, but not an unpleasant feeling. I see that the moisturizer also comes in a night version. I might purchase that one also and let you know how I like it.

Final Thoughts:

I have to say I loved the Brand and the Science behind it. I might be a tad too young for all the serums that came in the kit to use at once, but I tried them all. But as I always say, Start Young!!!!
