I’ve used Prose hair products in the past and really liked them. I’m not currently using the shampoo/conditioner because I wanted to take a little break and try some other products. But I really love their dry shampoo and will be ordering it again as soon as I run out.
Because I enjoy the Prose hair products I was excited to see that they have started creating custom skin care products. Just like their hair products, the skin care line starts with a lengthy questionnaire. It asks about where you live, your age, your eating/drinking habits, how much sun you get daily, how often you use sunscreen, your skin type, etc. The questionnaire also gets into your skin concerns; blemishes, wrinkles, fine lines, redness, etc.
I really like how in depth they get into your lifestyle as well as your skin concerns.
There are so many different products out there with ingredients that sound like they came from my junior chemistry class. I’m never really sure which products or combination of products I actually need and have probably purchased things that weren’t right for me.
Prose does the guess-work for you and suggests the formula that would be best for your skin type based on your answers.
I’ve been using the face wash, serum, and moisturizer for two months and have been really happy with the products. My skin feels soft and my skin tone feels more even. Like most women my age I have begun plucking little stiff hairs from my chin on the daily. I’m not sure if it’s the Prose products or just my imagination but those little hairs (that I still have to pluck out regularly) seem to feel not quite as stiff as they were before. I’m not saying Prose is going to stop those hairs altogether…oh no! They are there to stay. The only way to completely get rid of them is multiple appointments for laser hair removal. However, they don’t seem as prickly as they were before I started using Prose.
Regarding cleansing my face at night; I still do a double cleanse with a facial oil first followed by the Prose cream cleanser. I love my Palmers Facial Oil too much to give it up. Then I apply the Prose serum followed by the Prose moisturizer. Sometimes I add Rose Hip oil to the routine when I feel like I need a little boost of moisture.
In the morning I wash my face in the shower with Burts Bees Deep Cleansing Balm then apply the Prose serum followed by the moisturizer. Those two products, before my makeup, are plenty to keep my skin hydrated for the entire day.
Currently, they do not sell eye cream or lip balm but I would buy them if they did.
The first time you order, they provide a bottle pump and serum dropper. The following orders don’t come with a pump or dropper unless you specifically ask for it in your order renewal. Each product is packaged in dark green class bottles which is really nice if you are concerned about eco-friendly packaging.
The only thing I’m not pleased with is they don’t alert you when it’s time to review your formula before they send you another set of products. Without that warning, I might get another item when I still have product to finish. If they gave a warning you could snooze the shipment of the next order until you’re ready for it.
Like all of the Prose products, each item is cheaper if you set up a subscription to automatically get more product after a certain amount of time. The longest amount of time you can wait before getting a replacement is twelve weeks. However, you can snooze delivery for several weeks in case you don’t use all of the product.
Let’s talk about price. Prose is more expensive than items you can find at Target and Walmart like Cerve or Neutrogena but less expensive than brands you would find at Sephora or a department store like Lancome’ or Drunk Elephant.
The cleanser is $29, serum is $64, and moisturizer is $52. That can feel like a lot every three months but if you subscribe to a reoccurring order you save 20% every time you order. Plus, you can save $20 on your first order of Prose Skin Care by using this link.
Is the price worth it? If you are a teen or in your twenties; probably not. Just make sure to wear sunscreen everyday and use an inexpensive moisturizer. And use sunscreen. Everyday. Did I mention sunscreen? And to use it everyday? Sunscreen…everyday.
If you’re realizing that you’re not getting any younger and suddenly understanding what they are talking about when they say your skin isn’t bouncing back (literally and figuratively) like it use to; then yes, the price is worth it. You only have one face and the older it gets the more you need to take care of it. I’m going to be 48 this month. (I just took a big sigh when I typed that out) I haven’t done Botox or chemical peels (yet) but I don’t begrudge women who at a place where they see youth slipping away and want to try and hold on to it.
I don’t know if Botox is in my future but for now I’m willing to pay extra to have custom skin care.
