In honor of the last day of National Skincare Month, founded by Dallas’ Celebrity Esthetician Renee Rouleau, I’m reviewing a few items from her Type 2 line.
The Renee Rouleau philosophy is that all skin types are neither created equal nor just the big 3 (oily/combo/dry). There are “9 unique skin types” and you can search for yours here.
From the Type 2 line:
Purifying Face Wash – I love the viscosity of this gel. It is fairly thick, and easy to get a decent bead into your hand. It has a low lather and cleans well.
Vitamin C & E Complex – I am a huge believer in Vitamin C skin therapy, and Renee Rouleau uses it liberally in her line. This product is used to “smooth lines, firm skin, reduce redness andimprove uneven skin color.” It comes in a rich, creamy base that is very easy to smooth on and will be especially comforting as the drier weather approaches.
Sheer Moisture – Loaded with Vitamins A, C & E, this is my favorite! It is so sheer, lightweight and absolutely greaseless, as promised. What really sets this apart is the addition of Jasmin extract and oil, creating a light and heavenly scent.
Daily Protection SPF 30: The final touch to your routine. Renee recommends reapplying often to keep spf levels up (easy to sweat or rub off). She provides daily tips on improving skin care, and the best I’ve read is that you can repair slight skin damage by using corrective actions, such as SPFs daily.
All of these formulas are very rich in a good way, and clearly keep the skin in a condition to keep it well hydrated. I personally think lack of proper moisturizing and protection is a huge reason we can begin to look older than we are, and love how this line combats that problem.
If you have a chance, catch a facial at one of her locations! Renee Rouleau Skin Care Spas were awarded “Best Spa” by Allure readers, with locations in Dallas and Plano. The only focus is skincare, so attention is not divided between hair or other therapies. Her celebrity client list is long, and the line is rapidly gaining popularity as word catches on across the US. I have to mention that in addition to her skincare line, Rouleau is also extremely personable and professional. She takes skincare very seriously, and still has fun!
