In our Let's Glow Together campaign we have been catching up with our customers to hear about their genuine results.
"I still had a lot of impurities, blemishing spots and visible pores"
I always tried to take good care of my skin, since my mother always stressed how important it is. Taking off your make-up every night before going to bed, hydrating your skin twice a day with a good moisturizer, using a scrub from time to time… and yet, I still had a lot of impurities, blemishing spots and visible pores, which obviously bothered me a lot. And as I hit my thirties, I started to realize that I needed to take action before my sensitive, rather dry skin would show any real signs of aging.
"In April 2017 I purchased my first Face and Body set kit"
I read an article online about the benefits of derma rolling and I was intrigued. I am a huge fan of jade rollers so it certainly caught my attention; how these thousands of tiny little needles help restore your skin from the inside out and boost your collagen level while reducing scars and other imperfections… I just had to try it. I decided to search for an online brand that specializes in derma rollers only, because I didn’t want to trust the health of my skin to anyone else. So, in April 2017 I purchased my first kit (a 4-in-1 derma roller set) through Glow Girl Cosmetics. My online order arrived just a few days later so I was all good to go and test the roller myself.
The 4-in-1 kit was a really good kit to start with as it included different kinds of heads for the roller, all in different sizes. I began with the smallest head since it has the smallest size in needles (0,5mm). I wanted to see how my skin would react first, before applying the roller over my entire face. I immediately noticed that the needles did not hurt at all so I happily began using the standard roller head (1mm) on the other areas of my face. A pink blush started to appear on my cheeks and forehead but rolling still felt comfortable. I ended with a quick roll around the eyes and on the lips and finished by using a vitalizing serum so that the skin could soak up the nutrients and the healing of the skin could start…
"The next morning, my skin already looked better"
Of course the next morning I immediately inspected my skin thoroughly and, as I had hoped, my skin already looked better; a healthy glow and no irritation what so ever. If my skin looked this good after one use, imagine how good it will look after 2, 3 or even 10 sessions, I said to my self. I showed my mother the result and she visibly saw the difference too!
I was a big fan of the Glow Girl Cosmetics derma roller after the first use, and I still am. I use the roller (together with a vitamin C-serum) every 2 to 3 weeks, so it gives my sensitive skin sufficient time to reload and heal between sessions. I also follow the guidelines meticulously; I make sure to sanitize the roller before and after each single use in order to avoid any infections on the skin and I stay out of the sun completely the next day. Also, it is obviously important not to put too much pressure on the roller and I really avoid going over the same area of skin too often. A derma rolling session usually takes no longer than 5 to 10 minutes and I always do this in the evening just before heading off to bed, even tough the redness from rolling is gone after a few minutes.
"My skin tone has improved too; the dark spots and hyperpigmentation have decreased"
After using the derma roller for over a year now, my skin rarely breaks out any more and the visible pores are not so visible any more. I am really thrilled about the results! At first, I was concerned that using a derma roller on a regular basis would dry out my skin too much, but I am happy to say this was not the case, not even last winter. My skin tone has improved too; the dark spots and hyperpigmentation have decreased. My skin is more radiant and it looks really healthy. I am positive that using a derma roller has contributed to this.
"I feel confident enough now to go out with a bare face"
Of course my friends started noticing the results too and as I am always telling them passionately about the benefits of the derma roller and what it could do for them, 3 of them ordered a Glow Girl Cosmetics kit too! Even my mom and sister did so; they each recently bought a ‘Roll and Repair Face and Body’ Kit which includes a pore blaster. Honestly, I can not wait to try the pore blaster myself even though my pores are not a major skin concern for me any more… My skin has improved that much that a few months ago I have decided not to wear any foundation anymore - aside from a bit of concealer underneath the eyes of course! I feel confident enough now to go out with a bare face and just a bit of eye makeup and some lipstick, my skin looks THAT good. My mom thinks so too! ;-)
