Azelique Age Refining Cleanser Skin Polish Activated Charcoal Clay Mask Day Lotion Night Cream Retinol Vitamin A Hyaluronic Acid Facial Serum Eye Treatment

If you've been following this blog for a while, you know how much of a fan of iHerb I am! I first stumbled across the superstore's website around the same time I started blogging back in 2012 (time flies), and I've been purchasing from them ever since. Never heard of iHerb? You've been missing out! Let me bring you up to speed. iHerb is a world leader in guaranteeing the best overall value to customers when it comes to natural products, carrying more than 30,000 products. They offer a Triple Guarantee for 100% customer satisfaction: value guarantee (as mentioned above), quality guarantee (they are based in California and assure U.S.-based brand authenticity as well as quality assurance by shipping from climate-controlled warehouses), and delivery guarantee (with free or discounted shipping to over 150 countries). If like me you are located outside of the U.S., you can look into shipping methods to your country. I was recently introduced to Azelique, a vegan and cruelty-free skincare line exclusive to iHerb and wanted to share how I have been getting along with this new-to-me range.

Azelique offers a selection of products that includes everything you need for a complete skincare routine, from a cleanser to an exfoliator, a day lotion, a night cream, a selection of serums, an eye treatment, and a face mask. Using a combination of both botanicals and nutraceuticals, this line offers a good balance of natural extracts as well as nutrient-rich active ingredients that are known for their efficacy and performance. The brand got its name, Azelique, from Azelaic Acid, an acid which has been found to diminish visible signs redness, blemishes, acne scarring and hyperpigmentation, as well as even out tone and texture, aka everything I deal with on a regular basis, so it's a match made in heaven.

Azelique Age Refining Cleanser Skin Polish Activated Charcoal Clay Mask

Azelique Age Refining Cleanser

I've been using the Age Refining Cleanser both morning and evening, and what I love about it is that it's super gentle and suitable for all skin types, including sensitive, which I fall under. Once squeezed out of the tube, it appears clear, but combined with water, will slightly lather and turn into a white emulsion. It's great at breaking down face makeup without disturbing the skin's pH level or leaving my skin looking red or irritated. It has a light floral scent, and key ingredients include vitamins E, C and A, CoQ10, green tea leaf extract, grape seed oil, olive leaf extract, acai berry, and rosehip extract.

Azelique Age Refining Skin Polish

Twice a week, I like to reach for the Age Refining Skin Polish, a heavy-duty physical facial exfoliator. It contains white micro granules that help dislodge and lift impurities that are found deep in the pores. Once applied, I simply massage the product in circular motions for a minute with a light hand, and rinse. After recently receiving a facial which included extractions, I am being more diligent about ensuring my pores are as clear as they can be, and this polish has been a welcome addition to my skincare stash. Since the formula is on the slightly grittier side, it's also great to treat dry patches. Also, a little goes a long way!

Azelique Age Refining Activated Charcoal & Clay Mask

The Activated Charcoal & Clay Mask is pretty neat as it's a hybrid between a mask and a mechanical exfoliator. The mask is made from a base of activated charcoal, kaolin clay, bentonite clay and sea kelp for the ultimate detoxifying effect. It also contains glycolic acid, which helps even out skin tone, hyaluronic acid, which acts as a humectant, and apricot seed powder for a polishing effect which kicks in when massaging prior to rinsing. When I first apply the mask, I feel a slight warming sensation for the first few minutes (nothing uncomfortable), which then switches to a cooling sensation. I like to do this mask once a week and leave it on for roughly 15 minutes - by then, the mask has dried and turned light grey and my pores are peaking through the mask, revealing that the mask has done its work by absorbing excess sebum.

Azelique Anti Aging Retinol Vitamin A Age Refining Hyaluronic Acid Facial Serum

Azelique Anti-Aging Retinol Vitamin A Facial Serum

I've been on the lookout for a skincare product containing retinol to add to my daily routine, so I was excited to come across the Anti-Aging Retinol Vitamin A Facial Serum. In case you weren't aware, retinol is basically vitamin A, which applied topically helps with the skin renewal process and reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and pore size and will overall improve your skin tone. This liquid serum also contains jojoba esters, pumpkin seed extract, vitamin E, barley seed extract, peach leaf extract and oat seed extract. I like alternating between this serum and the next one, applying it all over my face and neck before moving on to moisturizer.

Azelique Age Refining Hyaluronic Acid Serum

Hyaluronic Acid is a humectant, meaning it draws moisture from its surroundings, that is naturally present in the body, but it can also be incorporated into a water-based skincare product. Applying hyaluronic acid topically is known to not only boost hydration and plump the skin but also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The Age Refining Hyaluronic Acid Serum has more of a liquid-gel consistency and my skin drinks this stuff right up! If you've been dealing with dehydrated skin like I have these last few weeks (thanks frigid temperatures), this serum will also help boost the performance of the face products you will apply afterwards as it will help retain moisture.

Azelique Age Refining Day Lotion Night Cream Eye Treatment

Azelique Age Refining Day Lotion

I've been reaching for the Age Refining Day Lotion every morning after cleansing and applying a serum. What I like is that the weightless formula absorbs super quickly which makes this moisturizer perfect to apply before moving on to doing your makeup. It contains a mix of CoQ10, vitamins A, C and E as well as other botanical extracts such as safflower seed oil, grape seed oil, witch hazel, green tea leaf extract, acai berry fruit extract and pomegranate seed oil. It has a light floral scent and does not leave a greasy residue behind, something I personally prefer when it comes to facial products I reach for during the day.

Azelique Age Refining Night Cream

At night, I always opt for a heavier cream or facial oil, and I've been using the Age Refining Night Cream consistently for the last few weeks. Housed in a thin bottle with a pump dispenser just like the day lotion, this cream feels slightly oilier once applied, yet does not leave the skin feeling greasy. What I also like is that you can feel the firming effect it has within a couple of minutes following application. Once again, this product contains a handful of nutraceuticals and botanical extracts high in antioxidants and polyphenols which help calm the skin. It also has resveratrol ferment, which helps increase collagen production as well as even out and brighten the skin.

Azelique Age Refining Eye Treatment

The last step in my skincare routine is the Age Refining Eye Treatment. I've been using this fragrance-free eye cream morning and night, as the skin around my eyes has been on the drier side the last few weeks, and I've been needing all the help I can get! It contains coffee extract, which helps reduce puffiness around the eyes as well as glycolic acid to gently exfoliate the sensitive area around the eyes. This eye treatment has a light creamy texture that absorbs quickly into the skin. Moisturizing around my eyes also helps prevent my concealer from creasing throughout the day, so it's definitely become a must-have for me.
