Awesome New Skincare Product Review & Giveaway{#EclosBeauty}

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of éclos Skin Care for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Those of you who know me personally commented last week about how much my daughter looks like me.  Like, exactly like me.  A spitting image.  We get that ALL THE TIME.  The rest of you have maybe never seen me because I don't, as a habit, post pictures of myself.  It's hard having a pretty young thing running around with your face, except at an ideal weight and with flawless skin.  {Seriously, what fourteen year old has skin like that?!}  It can make you a teensy bit self-conscious.  That's why I was super excited when I was asked to try éclos Skin Care products and review them on my blog!  I'm willing to try anything at this point.

The downside?  I have to post pictures of myself -- before and after.  {Major cringe}  I'm telling you, it is physically painful to me to look at pictures of myself.  But I was willing to bite the bullet and do it.  I got the package in the mail and it was like Christmas morning.  I love beauty products.  It's a little bit of a sickness.
The kit contains Facial Cleanser Skin Prep,  Cellular Activator Face Serum,  Moisture Therapy Regenerative Cream,  Restorative Eye Cream,  Instant Radiance Facial Scrub,  Skin Renewal Clay Mask, and an éclos Terry Cloth Head Band.

Here's the science-y stuff:
éclos Skin Care features Apple Stem Cells extracted from a rare Swiss apple which have shown tremendous ability to stimulate skin stem cells, encouraging aging skin to behave like younger skin. Plant extracts, vitamins and anti-oxidants combine with the Apple Stem Cell technology to help minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and tired skin.

They had me at "encouraging aging skin to behave like younger skin".  Yes, please!  I've seen the commercials on tv for similar, very expensive products.  This is the first I have heard of at my price point and in the stores I shop at.  The suggested retail price for the whole kit is just $19.99.  Sweet!

I really liked the products, too.  They smelled really nice and clean and left my skin feeling super clean and soft.  You know how with some products you wash your face and then still get junk on your towel when you dry off?  This doesn't do that.  My face was actually clean.  The clay mask was probably my favorite.  I used it a couple times a week and it made my face feel deep-down clean. 
So, here they are -- my photos:

Nothing like pointing out all your flaws, right?  In these photos I have foundation and powder on, but nothing else.  I just couldn't take one completely bare-faced.
After just a couple of weeks my skin is so much brighter and fresher looking -- almost glow-y.  Seriously.  In the after picture I am only wearing a little sheer tinted sunscreen, eyeliner and mascara.  I have ALWAYS worn full-face makeup, every day, no matter what I'm doing.  Always.  Even working out.  All summer long.  Even at camp.  {Which is maybe where the acne came from...}  My skin looks so good now I can wear an almost bare face and feel almost pretty.  Confident, at least.  That's awesome to me.  The texture of my skin is better, too.  It's nice and smooth, which I haven't felt in a while.   I can't wait to go to camp next week and leave my makeup bag at home!

I struggle with insomnia, which usually leaves my eyes droopy and tired-looking.  I feel like I look a lot fresher and brighter after using the Restorative Eye Cream for a couple weeks, even though I haven't really been sleeping better.  That sells me on the product right there.

Here's the really fun part:  They gave me a second kit to share with one of you!!  In order to win and try it for yourself FOR FREE, just leave a comment on this post telling us which product you are most excited to try.  Easy Cheesy!  This is going to be a quick giveaway since I'm leaving for camp next week.  I'll pick a winner Wednesday, May 30th and let y'all know who won right here on the blog before I leave. 
Good luck!!
