Five Simple Steps to Clearer, Brighter and Healthier Skin

There are many skincare systems out there that make it overwhelming as a consumer, based on the time and money we invest to find what works best for us. We could read all the reviews and recommendations out there, to find that a product may not work with our skin types and concerns. As a blogger, my job is to give you as much in-depth information as to my personal experience using the products I review, along with key ingredients and reasons as to why you should use the product in the first place. I can never guarantee that the product(s) will work for you, but I can at least provide you with suitable options to try if you are struggling when it comes to your skincare regime.

After I posted my article on Places to See in Vancouver, I was contacted by the Canadian Skincare Brand, Metrin, who offered to supply me with their skincare system in exchange for a review on the blog. As I openly welcome collaboration opportunities (based on my honest opinions of course), I gladly accepted. Over the last 2 1/2 months, I have diligently used each product in the system to create clear and concise notes I felt would be beneficial for the review.

Five Simple Steps to Clearer, Brighter and Healthier Skin
Step 1 – Deep Cleanser

This product is the perfect fix for removing all traces of dirt and makeup… and I mean all traces! It’s quite thick and does leave a layer of film on the skin once removed, but don’t let that alarm you. It will wash off with step #2!

Step 2 – Lathering Cleanser

I have quite a different outlook when it comes to the relationship between skincare and exfoliants. I understand that when it comes to your skins natural rejuvenation process, peeling back the old, dead layers of skin is crucial to the overall health and appearance of your skin. With that being said, I believe there are other alternatives to exfoliating your skin without using a scrub or scrub-like products. And that is where Metrin comes into play…

Metrin’s “Lathering Cleaner” provides your skin with a more subtle way to exfoliate. A key ingredient in this product is ‘soy protein’ which stimulates the removal of build up on the top layers of the skin. So, although you can’t feel the exfoliation on the surface while applying the product, you are still reaping the benefits of removing dead skin and evening the overall texture of your skin.

Step 3 – Vita Conditioner

The beginning to the most important part – Time to repair!

I love a good moisturizer that is packed with vitamins and antioxidants. Beside from the obvious, what I appreciate about this skin conditioner is its lightweight consistency. As my skin gets a little red and irritated no matter what cleanser I use, I noticed that this moisturizer instantly soothed my skin and toned down the redness, while removing any feeling of tightness after washing.

Step 4 – Protective Lotion

My favorite product in the system! This is a facial mist used to press the first conditioning lotion deep into the skin, while also protecting your pores from the free radicals you face each day while also assisting your skin in retaining its natural moisture. I like to use this right after step 3 while also using it as a light refresher throughout the day.

Step 5 – Enriched Vita Conditioner

The final step is your topical barrier against free radicals. This protects your skin on the upper layers, while step 3 protects within the layers. These two go hand in hand with each other. This is also packed with vitamins and antioxidants, and provides your skin with even more moisture. My skin feels even more hydrated and smooth once I apply this before I start my day.

Overall, I believe Metrin has a wonderful product. In the few months of consistent use, I noticed a different in both texture and clarity, which have always been key focus points for me when it comes to my skin. Not only do they offering a quality product line, but Metrin promises your complete satisfaction with their line or they will offer a 180-day money-back guarantee. It is rare to find a brand so confident in their product that also knows the difficulty of products being suitable for all skin types.

With Love,

    I always have a hard time looking for the right skin care products. I find out sets like this are so time-consuming and I can’t keep up. However, the packaging is pretty and it seems to have a lot of things to help my skin that I might just have to try it out.
