I’ve been a devoted SkinCeuticals girl for the past two years, so when I learned of their Custom D.O.S.E, (which stands for Diagnostic Optimization Serum Experience) I was beyond excited to try it for myself. I have been using the SkinCeuticals Gentle Cleanser, C E Ferulic, Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier, and Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 as part of my daily routine for quite a while and absolutely raving about the results to anyone who will listen! The SkinCeuticals Custom D.O.S.E takes the goodness even further, combining 14 ingredients to create your own uniquely perfect serum. (there are 48 possible combinations) The idea of incorporating all the best SkinCeuticals products for my exact needs was beyond thrilling, so off I went to the Center for Facial and Body Rejuvenation, in Saratoga, California to get D.O.S.E’d!
As I entered the bright white space, with wall to wall SkinCeuticals, it felt like I was entering skincare heaven. Mama was home! I started out by filling out a quick questionnaire, outlining my skincare concerns which I then discussed with my aesthetician. She and I came up with the best plan of action to help prep my skin for the Custom D.O.S.E. It would include a round of Microdermabrasion and an Express Chemical Peel. (My biggest concerns were skin discoloration, fine lines and dry skin). Before getting started I would also get the SkinCeuticals Skin Scope analysis, which let me tell ya, was a major eye opener and something I recommend you all do! The inside of the machine is a spherical 180-degree mirror which lets you see your face up close and personal from every angle. A UV light is turned on, showing the sub-surface of your skin, illuminating any sun damage, dark spots, basically any problem areas. (mind blown!) It gave me such an in-depth look into what I truly needed to focus on. Hello sun damage I didn’t even know I had!
After my procedures it was time to make the good stuff! Dr.Cheng met me in the Custom D.O.S.E room and once again, along with my aesthetician, went through what my skin’s needs were. I think this is what makes the Custom D.O.S.E head and shoulders above any other skincare. Beyond the amazing ingredients, where else have you ever been able to receive such precise diagnosis for your individual skincare needs? We spend so much money and time trying to perfect our skincare routines, the ability of taking the guess work out of it is just a no brainer for me.
Each SkinCeuticals Custom DOSE vile lasts about 3 months, and here is the best part: After the 90 days you go back in and get an updated assessment of your skin, so your next Custom D.O.S.E will be created for your skin’s real time needs. No SkinCeuticals Custom DOSE will be exactly the same, as your skin changes and improves with continued use. I am a huge fan for life you guys and can’t wait to bring you an update after my first 90 days! Now go get yourself D.O.S.E’d!
