Rovectin Skin Essentials Review

My skin goes a little haywire in the winter because the air is so dry. I have oily skin that's also sensitive, so even though it's less oily in the winter it gets really irritated by the harsh winter weather. Luckily Rovectin has a wonderful line of skincare products to help keep skin fresh and nourished!

*Dislcaimer: These products were sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

Rovectin is a derma-cosmetic brand originally from Korea that creates to help improve the quality of life for those suffering from side effects of chemotherapy, such as irritated skin. These anti-irritant products were developed at their Santa Monica, California research center in 2011 and are made without any elements that may cause skin irritation.

While these products were created to help those undergoing chemotherapy treatments, they can be used by anyone who suffers from skin problems like dry or aging skin. The Skin Essentials line contains the Barrier Repair Complex (BRC) to decrease skin moisture loss, an Asta Cell Fortifier to scavenge free radicals, and a Silky Shielding Base to deliver a high concentration of nutrients to the skin. The products are made without harsh chemical ingredients, parabens, synthetic colors and fragrances, formaldehyde-releasing preservatives, alcohol solvents, animal-sourced ingredients, comedogenic ingredients, or dioxane-containing surfactants.

The Skin Essentials line is made up of four products. I used them all for about a month and found them to be quite gentle.

The Conditioning Cleanser was the first step in my routine. It's hypoallergenic and and works to maintain the skin's hydro-lipid balance. Basically, wash the bad stuff off and keep the good stuff in to help your skin stay elasticized and moisturized. I will say that if I didn't add a moisturizer shortly after my skin did feel a little tight after using it, which was surprising to me. I didn't leave a huge amount of time in between cleansing and moisturizing, maybe a minute or two because I like to apply eye cream and let it set before moisturizer, but it was one thing I noticed that I wanted to share.

The Barrier Repair Cream Concentrate is the cream in the smaller tube (far right of the photo) and was what I used first after using the cleanser. It's a highly concentrated cream for very dry areas of the skin. I thought it might be too thick or heavy for my face, but it actually felt very light and did a good job of making my skin feel soft and nourished after using it.

I then tried using the Barrier Repair Cream on my face after cleansing, and I've also been using it on my body after I get out of the shower. It's hypoallergenic and appropriate for use on the face and body, and I found it absorbed quickly into my skin. I get dry patches on my arms and hands and this did a good job of keeping them at bay.

Last up is the Barrier Repair Face Oil. I absolutely adore using face oils; they're wonderful for both oily and dry skin. This one has nourishing squalene, plum seed extract, and neroli oil. You can add a few drops into your cream moisturizer, but I prefer to use it alone. Just two drops from the dropper were all I needed for my entire face, and it absorbed quickly and made my skin feel so soft.
Bottom Line: I had a great experience with the Rovectin Skin Essentials line. I have dry skin, especially on my body, during the winter and these products did a great job of providing long-lasting moisture!
