Why You Can’t Trust Skincare that’s “Too Cheap to Be True”

The market is saturated with anti-aging skincare – everywhere you turn on the web there’s another product touting its effectiveness in reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Or, claiming to literally rewind the clock and eliminate aging spots… crow’s feet… forehead wrinkles… you name it. The truth is, only the products with advanced actives at maximum strengths are going to make a real difference in your appearance.  Professional products. 

Our products here at Makeup Artists’ Choice and BellEvolve include the highest quality advanced skincare actives, used by professionals, at maximum recommend percentages on the market. You’ll find ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid… Vitamin C… Glycloic Acid… Mandelic Acid… ceramides and peptides… Niacinamide… Retinol… Lactic Acid… Argon Oil… Vitamin E… antioxidants… plant stem cells… Salicylic acid… and the list goes on. You’re also going to find our lines at affordable and sustainable pricing while knowing you’re getting what you pay for. The results show themselves in our thousands of testimonials on product pages, and within our Blog.

We cannot stress enough that the professional quality of what we deliver to you within our entire product line can’t be found on mega-sites like Amazon or Ebay. So many companies CLAIM that their products are FDA 99.9% pure, or top notch… but, the truth is… it wouldn’t be possible to sell them at such cheap pricing if they were of the highest quality. That’s a FACT. With us, you can rest assured you’re getting the best skincare there is, at pricing that’s pretty tough to beat. AND, we offer sample sizing for the majority of our products. Simply click on any product and go to the sizing options to select your sample size, then add to your cart.

Products to Always Pair Together

When browsing the MUAC/ BellEvolve website, you’ll notice that we suggest companion products to many of our items on the product pages to help you select appropriate items and take away some of the guess work. But there are some rules when it comes to making perfect matches…

Here are some to keep in mind for the future!

Pair Acids with Non Acids
This may sound super obvious, but when purchasing an acid serum or a chemical peel, we always suggest a gentle cleanser, toner and moisturizer to use during the time you’re under “the influence” of acids. Using too many acidic products at once will cause stress and sever redness, even burning of your skin. It’s always critical to combine soothing, gentle non-acidic products during the days you’re using chemical peels or serums. Some of our suggested products are:

Sensitive Skin? Pair a Soothing Cleanser/Toner with an Enzyme Peel
Let’s face it, some acids and retinoids are just too harsh some skin, especially super sensitive skin.Thus, pairing gentle products with enzyme based products is a very good idea. That’s because enzymes offer gentle exfoliation for skin that can’t handle acids. Our MUAC Triple Enzyme Peel is an excellent choice for sensitive skin, paired up with our  Papaya Enzyme Cleanser our soothing Cucumber Toner.

Pair Acne Products with Argan Oil (or similar moisturizers)
Often times, acne sufferers are pretty harsh to their skin as they use many strong products to treat the acne (such as our MUAC TCA Peel ). But, skin also needs to be soothed and moisturized especially during acne treatments so that it doesn’t actually product MORE oil/ more breakouts. Skin can actually undergo an overdose of harsh acids and go haywire, which causes even MORE breakouts. Thus, we always suggest an oil free non-comodogenic moisturizer such as Argan Oil, coconut oil, or our MUAC Green Tea-Pomegranate Moisturizer (which is oil free) to sooth skin and protect it.

We hope you enjoyed these suggestions and learning about why certain products are fabulous companions.  If you have any questions or concerns about ANY of our products, or just need a skincare regimen, you can always write to us directly at info@makeupartistschoice.com

Why You Should Add Some Charcoal to Your Skincare

Simply put, activated charcoal acts as a mega sponge for impurities and toxins including bacteria… chemicals… dirt… and poisons. It leaves your skin detoxed and refreshed.

In fact, activated charcoal powder can hold 1,000 times it’s weight in toxins. It’s no wonder charcoal has made its way into skincare products, especially masks.

All skin types can benefit from charcoal for a good detox, particularly those with oily skin to really absorb and detox all that extra oil and sebum. Normal skin types can certainly benefit as well, but shouldn’t overuse.

Here are two of our charcoal products in our MUAC line that you won’t want to miss:

Provide Your Skin with A Good Detoxing
Our MUAC Glow Mask is just the product to detox and decongest your pores. Great for ANY SKIN TYPE. The thermal charcoal formula within this mask activates with water to create a warming sensation, while helping to melt away debris.

5 Stars
The Best Face Mask for My Very Sensitive Skin
The mask effectively does what it is designed for: it unclogs the pores, without irritating the skin. I could see my face looking healthier and “glow” right from the first application of the mask. I also love the warming sensation of the activated thermal charcoal on my face. Thank you dear MUAC team for this very good product – Anissa from Mauritius
Keep Oil and Sebum at Bay
Our MUAC Blemish Busters Cleanser uses activated charcoal, along with Tea Tree oil and other fabulous ingredients, to absorb excess oil and sebum. Use it two – three times a week rotating with a gentle cleanser to maintain your skin’s natural hydration. You won’t want to over dry your skin even if it’s “oily”, as too much drying can produce more oil. A great cleanser to use in between our Blemish Busters is our Wild Oat and Honey Cleanser.  Those with oily and acneac skin should absolutely order their sample bottle asap if they haven’t tried it already.

WOW!!
I am an African-American woman with a chocolate brown complexion and combination skin. I have to say that I am so thankful that I found this website. I have been using the blemish buster cleanser and toner for the past few weeks and I have to say that my breakouts have been kept at a minimum especially in my t-zone area. This product leaves my skin feeling clean without feeling too dry. I will definitely be continuing to use this product. – Megan W from Washington DC

BellEvolve Vitamin C 20% Professional Serum

Our BellEvolve Vitamin C 20% Professional Serum is a *potent* anti aging product. This advanced formulation contains L-ascorbic acid enhanced with Vitamin E, Hyaluronic and Phytic acids. Phytic acid, derived from natural plants, is an antioxidant that helps to block new formation of melanin.

Benefits:

–Stimulate collagen synthesis
–Fades age spots
–Reduces acne and acne scars
–Defends skin against free radicals and environment damage
–Minimizes fine lines and wrinkles
–Reduces general skin discolorations
–Excellent for sun damaged skin
–This product should be a staple in your anti aging regime.

Concentration:

Maximum tissue levels are obtained at 20% L-ascorbic acid. Any amount higher or lower than 20% is not an optimal concentration. You will see some companies market their serums at 20%, however they may be using other acid combinations to achieve this level. The L-ascorbic acid in our serum is exactly 20%. Additional ingredients are enhancements to maximize effectiveness and stability.

This product does *not* need to be refrigerated. Store in a cool, dry place and away from light.

pH: Many Vitamin C preparations are not pH adjusted for optimal biologic activity and penetration. The optimal pH of an L-ascorbic acid formula is between 2.5 – 3.0. Anything higher than pH 3 can reduce the ability to penetrate efficiently and lose overall effectiveness of the vitamin. Anything lower than pH 2.5 can cause irritations and very dry skin.

Compare to Cellex C, Skinceuticals and CRX.
