Air Repair Skincare Product Review

Hey guys! A few weeks ago, the amazing team of air repair skincare contacted me to see if I wanted to try their products in exchange for my opinion. After looking at their website and reading what they’re all about, I got very excited and accepted immediately.

Disclaimer: These products were sent to me in exchange for my honest opinion. I am not getting paid to write this nor are the links mentioned here affiliate links. I do not get a comission if you purchase from them. Some of the information here is from their website. 

 

Who are they?

Air Repair Skin Care is created by skin care specialist and licensed esthetician, Denise Spanek. Her mission is to make it easy for people to achieve healthy, glowing skin at any age. She created a nature-based line of products to address inflame- aging. The products are created with clean chemistry, healing botanicals, and natural extracts that are specifically formulated to block inflammatory mediators and help the skin repair itself. The products are free from petroleum, mineral oil, and parabens. They are also gluten-free and cruelty-free.

 

What is it?

Air Repair Skin Care is a skin care line made to combat the effects of environmental stressors that trigger inflam-aging of the skin. It is made with healing botanicals and natural extracts. Their purpose is to heal your skin or prevent from irritation or inflammation due to air pollution or weather changes. All their products are travel size and TSA approved, so you can take them with you when you travel. 

 Air Repair® Skincare Complexion-Boosting Moisturizer $21

What it is:

It’s a regenerating treatment cream that helps repair dull, tired and dehydrated skin. 

What it does:

It moisturizes and rejuvenates stressed and inflamed skin. It prevents chronic inflammation, or “inflam-aging,” which causes dryness, dehydration, irritation and premature aging.

My experience: 

I loved the consistency and texture of this cream. Although I am not a fan of creams for the face, this one is so light-weight, smooth and very comfortable to wear. It sinks into the skin immediately, it is not thick and leaves your skin feeling smooth, soft and hydrated instantly. I have very dry skin and this cream leaves it feeling very hydrated and soft. I absolutely love how thin and fast absorbent it is. 

                          Complexion-Quenching Facial Mist $10

                                                                             What it is: 

It is a facial mist loaded with moisturizing and refreshing ingredients to instantly cool and soothe skin. Can be used as a toner, setting spray or facial mist. As a toner, spray product into a cotton pad and aply all over face. As a setting spray, spray all over face after makeup application. As a facial mist, spray all over face throughout the day to refresh makeup and face. 

What it does:

It hydrates the skin, living a cooling and refreshing feeling. 

My Expirience: 

This was the product I was most excited about. It is a facial mist, setting spray and toner in one.  I absolutely love this product. The fact that it is travel size and has skin care ingredients in it has me drooling about it. The thing is I alwas buy a setting spray twice, it’s regular size and the travel size and if I only buy one, I always go for the travel size so I can have it with me at all times. I love the refreshing feeling it gives to the skin and I also love that you can use it for more than one thing. 

 

Super Hydrating Eye Cream $23 

What it is:

It is a multi-purpose eye treatment that relieves and protects dry, fragil skin around the eye area.

 What it does:

It adds hydration to the under-eye and helps diminish the apperance of fine lines. With continued use, it can diminish the apperance of dark circles and reduce under-eye puffiness.  

My expirience:

I use this every night and I love how light-weight and refreshing it feels. I apply it with a Q-tip to prevent mixing the residue I have on my hands from the face cream. If you apply face cream with your hands and then apply the eye cream right after withouth washing your hands, you’re mixing products and can cause irritation. This has happened to me before, so that’s why I take these precautions.

A little goes a very long way, so this tube can last quite some time. I love how smooth and soft my under-eye feels in the morning. It makes my eyes look rested and awake. 

 

 

Soothing Facial Cleansing Milk $10

What it is:

 Cleans and refreshes stressed skin with soothing plant extracts.

What it does:

Removes dirt and makeup without stripping the skin of moisture. It is ideal for all skin types (mature, oily, acne prone, and even rosaceous). Its nourishing ingredients calm and hydrate, yielding a soft and smooth complexion.

My Expirience: 

I have never tried a cleansing milk before, so this was kind of interesting. For some reason I thought that using the term milk was just that, using the term. I never thought it would actually feel like milk. I know, it might sound dumb, but that’s what I thought. It removes dirt and makeup without you even feeling it. I felt I was putting on a regular cream rather than a cleanser. I rather go for a cleansing oil or soap, but this guy does it’s job. It leaves skin feeling smooth and soft right after and the next day my face felt like a baby’s butt. I actually was impressed with the results and I really liked it. 

Rescue Balm All-Purpose Skin Slave And Lip Balm $12

What it is: 

It is s a multi-tasking skin healer. It can be used for the lips, hands, face, cuticles, elbows, or anywhere on the body to help alleviate dry, flaky skin instantly.

What it does:

 Rescue Balm soothes, protects, and nourishes on contact. It is made with potent emollients that help prevent transepidermal water loss (or the loss of water through the outermost layer of the skin)one of the primary causes of dry skin.

My Expirience:

I’m going to be very honest, I thought this was just a blam so I have only tried it as a lip cream. It is a balm but it also has water in it. I can definitely see how it can prevent water loss. A little goes a long way too and the tube contains a lot of product. I did not like the taste or smell on this one, so it is kind of uncomfortable to wear as a lip balm. I did felt my lips hydrated and smooth after several uses. I can say it has benefits with continued use. I am very excited to try it out on my face to see how that works. I will definitely keep trying out this one and I’ll update you guys on Social Media.

 

Overall Thoughts: 

I absolutely love the concept of this brand. The fact that their purpose is to take care of your skin while you travel and through weather changes is amazing. I have never seen a brand do this before. I love how all their products are travel size and TSA approved. It saves us time and money. Now you don’t have to buy a full size and a travel size or switch containers every time you travel. I also love that it comes in its own pouch, so again, you don’t have to be finding storage for it. It also has a clip for you to attach to the bag or suite case. I love how you can use this for travel, or even for weather changes. Now that we are transitioning between summer and fall I think it’s going to be perefect for your skin. You can also carry this pouch with you at all times. It is small, so it fits comfortably in your purse or every day bag. You can also use it as an emergency kit, which is also great. I really liked all these products and the company mission and view in the skincare industry. I am very glad they made these products thinking in travelers, people with senitive skin or people who’s live is hectic and are always on the go. 

All these products are sold together as a kit or individually. Make sure to check out their website . It contains all the information you need and they also have videos explaining the brand and what they do, which I also thought it was great for poeple who doesn’t like to read or are just stopping by. 

Let me know if you suffer from skin irritation too, due to weather changes. Are you a traveler and would you consider buying these products? Have you tryed them before and if so, do you like them? Let me know what you think. I want to know how many of you know from this brand and have you loved it? Don’t forget to check their website and our social media for more updates and little reviews in these products.

New skin care additions

As you already know I’m always in search for everything that’s hydrating and everything related to skin care. My skin has been dryer than usual and I’ve been changing things a little bit to see if my skin texture and dryness improves. I also found some makeup removing wipes that hydrate your skin wonders and are super affordable. 

Como ya saben siempre estoy en busca de todas las cremas o productos hidratantes para la piel y ya que mi piel ha estado mas seca de lo usual, decidí cambiar los productos que uso. Cambie para Aveeno y conseguí unas toallas desmaquillantes que hidratan la piel y la dejan suave, además son super accesibles. 

Aveeno Brightening Cleanser
After using a Clean & Clear cleanser for a long time, I noticed It was making my skin dry. I tried Aveeno Brightening Cleanser and so far so good. It leaves my skin smooth, soft and hydrated. I don’t even need a hydrating cream after that. I noticed that my skin was still smooth and soft in the morning when I woke up. I definitely like it and will stick with it for a while. 

Después de usar la limpiadora de Clean & Clear por mucho tiempo, me estaba resecando el rostro. Así que, decidí ir en busca de una nueva y que cumpliera con mis necesidades. Decidí probar la Aveeno Brightening Cleanser, la cual prometía ser hidratante y ayudar con la textura de la piel. Me encantó, me hidrata la piel y la deja suave, tan así que si olvido untarme la crema hidratante de noche, al otro día la piel amanece suave y radiante. Lo recomiendo al 100% y me fascina. 

Aveeno Ultra Calming Skin Moisturizer
This one I use daily before applying my makeup. It has SPF, which is vital to protect our skin from the sun. Its consistency is a cream, it’s not heavy nor leaves the face oily or greasy. I personally prefer water gel consistencies, but this is a good one and is very comfortable to wear.

Este lo uso diario para hidratar el rostro antes de aplicar el maquillaje. Tine bloqueador solar lo que es necesario para proteger el rostro del sol. En cuanto a consistencia es una crema bastante liviana y no deja el rostro pegajoso. Saben que no soy fan de las cremas en el rostro, pues me gusta mejor que sean “water gel” y de consistencia mas fina. Esta no es así pero no es una mala crema tampoco, es còmoda de llevar y sin duda alguna ayuda con la hidratación de la piel y su textura. 

Kirkland Daily Facial Towelettes
I picked this wipes because everyone was raving about them on social media. They’re from Costco and the box brings 4 packages for $11.99, which is a very good deal. They are the most hydrating product I’ve ever tried. The towelette is completely wet and it leaves a refreshing feeling on the face. It doesn’t burn your eyes, removes the makeup and impurities with just one wipe and is very gentle to the skin. I absolutely love this and have been my favorites so far.

Escogí estas toallas desmaquillantes por que todo el mundo habla de ellas en youtube. Las venden en Costco y la caja trae 4 paquetes por $11.99. Es el producto con mayor nivel de hidratación que he probado hasta ahora. Es una toalla completamente húmeda que deja el rostro refrescante. Es suave en la piel y remueve todo el maquillaje con solo una. Demás esta decir que es tremendo producto y que se ha convertido en mi favorito.

 Let me know what products you use for your face and if I should try anything else. Don’t forget to follow me on social media so we can stay connected. Thank you always for reading.

 Déjenme saber que productos faciales usan para cuidar su piel y si me recomiendan alguno otro. No olviden seguirme en las redes sociales para mantenernos conectados. Gracias siempre por leer, un beso.
