Barry’s 30 Inside / Out Skin Care Challenge

Barry Gives Feedback on 4 Top Brands

February’s 30 Day Skin Care Review

My skin care reivew for February is going to incorporate a few different brands. I wanted to show how skin care brands, skin care devices and some of the tools that we showcase can all work together to create a home care routine. Every skin care pro out there prays for clients who use the products and devices as recommended.

My goal with this review is to explain how it can all get done, simply and easily.

how to treat oily skin

LED Light Therapy

One of the most beneficial modalities available to clients who are looking to make improvements in their skin is LED Light Therapy.  Our sponsor Celluma LED Light Therapy has provided me with their iPRO.  This device has 3 settings to choose from: Wrinkles, Acne and Aches & Pains.

It’s easy to multi-task for Aches & Pains on a sore shoulder, sore back or sore legs, while working at my computer or watching Hulu. It just needs to be in contact with the skin, so I don’t wear a shirt if I’m treating my shoulder or wear shorts if I’m working on my legs.

Finding the 30 minutes to lay flat with the Celluma iPRO over my face is a bit more challenging.  Jenni and I had a conversation and we decided to  combine our non-visual goals with our Celluma Time. 

Jenni listens to her favorite podcast while using her Celluma and I use my Calm app to spend time meditating.  I am committed to once a week to start!

Silicone Wrinkle Treatment

I have been working on trying to get my puffy, wrinkled, under-eye area to look like it did when I was 40.  Ah, it’s so refreshing to think of 40 as young.

I am putting the SilcSkin Silicon non-invasive wrinkle treatment to the test. I’m wearing the under SilcSkin Eye Pads every night.

PRO TIP: Buy the SilcSkin Cleanser, so you can clean them.  The oils from my skin get on the pads and their ability to adhere to the skin diminishes unless you clean them after using them.

I wash my face every evening with a gel cleanser [not a cream or lotion cleanser], to make sure I remove as much surface oil as possible.  Then I apply the pads under my eyes.

PRO TIP: Be sure to place the pad under your eye so that it’s low enough to feel comfortable when you look up, look down, and close your eyes.  I had it too close to the bottom lid and it didn’t feel good.  Also, when you remove it, do it slowly and hold the skin down with one hand and remove slowly with the other.

Herbal Skin Solutions Skin Care Review

I’m so excited to do a skin care review of Herbal Skin Solutions new products!  They launched an entirely new brand identity and packaging concept in late 2020 and sent it to us for feedback.  The new look is clean and sophisticated.

I’m using the Herbal Gel Cleanser, Herbal Cream Cleanser, Hydrating Mist with Lavender & Chamomile, Vitamin C+ Enhancement Serum, and EGF Cellular Activator.

2 Must Try’s From Herbal Skin Solutions

Blue Moon Retinal Overnight Sleeping Mask, I put this over my EGF Cellular Activator. A very little bit goes a long way! I used way too much on the first application and regretted it. I promise you, just use a tiny amount, spread it around on your finger tips then, gently apply it.  It’s rich and creamy with a spectacular scent! My skin drinks it up!

Exotic Exfoliating Enzyme Mask, I don’t want to oversell this mask in this skin care review! But, a total home run!  Rich, creamy, nourishing, with a manual exfoliation from Bamboo Fibers, the new millennium way to scrub, cranberry enzymes, with 3 acids, “luxuriously whipped” into an intoxicatingly, fragrant, creamy deliciousness.

Nature Pure Botanicals Skin Care Review

Ok, I have been dying to do a 30 Day Skin Care Reivew of the SOY BEAUTY® Age Reversing Trio from Nature Pure.  We featured this patented trio on an article last year and, I tried it, but didn’t use it for an extended period of time.

I’m using the all 3 of pieces of the SOY BEAUTY® Age Reversing Trio, the Anti-Wrinkle Face Refiner, the Anti-Wrinkle Eye H-Perfector and the stand out of the 3….

Wrinkle Repair Serum – This is the first serum I apply in the morning.  It’s a light, thin lotion, it’s off-white in color. It absorbs right in!  Get to know this product!



I’m also feeding my skin from the inside out!  I’m taking the following supplements everyday.  No skin care review is complete unless you’re talking about the supplements that are being used to nourish the skin on a cellular level using nutrition!

Renew + Protect by Bend Beauty from Alexander’s Aesthetics II
The foundational product delivers six active and powerful ingredients that work synergistically to optimize your skin health. Hello EFA!

I’m also taking Collagen Peptides from Vital Proteins, Wellness Formula from Source Naturals, and Glucosamine/Chondroitin Formula from Country Life.
