To defy age, do so as you would going into battle. You have to strategize, you have to prepare and then you have to attack.
You may think that comparing skincare to fighting battles is outrageous, but the age-defying process is a war and you want to win! T
he first step in doing so is finding yourself a great cleanser. A fresh, clean face lays the foundation for success.
Now that I’ve shared all my pseudo-Sun Tzu philosophies with you, it’s time to get to the point. I’m going to give you the basic breakdown of Borba Skincare Age Defying 4-in-1 Cleansing Treatment and let you know what I thought of it.
The 411 on this 4-in-1
Created by the Borba Skincare brand, this 4-in-1 cleansing treatment is meant to 1- remove makeup, 2- exfoliate, 3- refine pores, 4- fight the signs of aging.
That’s a pretty tall order for one cleanser but like every other Borba product, it is full of nature’s strongest antioxidants.
Colloidal oatmeal is the main cleanser. Though not for Celiac’s, colloidal oatmeal effectively removes dirt, grime and of course, your makeup easily. It is also great in combatting redness and irritation from acne-prone skin.
The formula is enhanced with micro diamonds that gently exfoliate your face, ridding you of dead skin cells that dull the look of your skin. Sloughing away the old, gives way to new cell production which we all know is key in the anti-aging process.
On top of that, regular exfoliation helps diminish the size of pores so you can say goodbye to your craters and hello to refined pores.
The strength of acai berries fortifies this formula to fight free radicals and the early signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles.
To get the most out of this product you should be using it twice a day and all you need is a pea-sized amount. Rub it into your face and neck with circular motions to get the best exfoliating and cleansing results.
What Did I Like?
I think it’s great when companies support cruelty-free environments, which Borba does. On top of cruelty-free, this cleanser is also sulfate and triclosan-free, allergy and sensitivity tested, as well as clinically proven.
Studies have shown that a whopping 90% of women experienced longer lasting skin hydration and 87% felt smoother, silkier skin.
If you’re anything like me, stats are just numbers and don’t mean a thing until my skin says otherwise.
I will agree with the 90% of women out there who said your skin felt hydrated. Not only do you feel hydrated, but your skin does indeed feel silky smooth; like a baby’s bottom.
I’m a big fan of the scent. I’m a sucker for fruity scented skincare products because they just seem so girly and fun.
I also liked the consistency of the cleanser. You could feel the micro diamonds but they weren’t obnoxiously rough on your skin.
My Single Complaint
If we’re being honest here (and I am, because that’s how I roll!) I don’t LOVE this product. I don’t dislike it though.
As far as cleansers go, I think it’s pretty great but it’s claim to fame is being an Age Defying cleanser and I’m not sure it totally holds up to that.
Though my skin stayed clear of acne and my pores refined, I didn’t notice a more youthful appearance to my skin. I got sucked in by the delicious scent and pretty packaging! Oops!
…unless you’re looking to shed a few years off your face, then you might want to try something different.
