When I spent the day at Eleven Salon and Spa a few weeks ago (read my review here), I got a heck of a lot more than primping and pampering. I also went home with the spa’s new easy-peasy ElevenSkin routine, and let’s just say my skin has been looking blissed out ever since.
This spa-based product line has been around for a while, but it recently got a reboot with the addition of a four-piece set that keeps your skincare regimen as streatmlined as can be. Simply wash with the Refresh cleanser morning and night, follow with Protect SPF 18 moisturizer and Smooth eye cream in the AM, and swap out the moisturizer for the Hydrate serum in the evening. After using just the cleanser once, I couldn’t believe my eyes… The visible difference in my skin was instant.
But why? Eleven founder Nikki Oden is a big believer that the ocean is home to all the ingredients our skin needs, which is why she chose a species of brown algae called Larmaria as the line’s key ingredient. And after seeing the results firsthand, I’m pretty sure she’s on to something—and you can get the entire system for less than $40 (and you can even get auto-refills so you never run out). While you’re poking around the site, be sure to check out the other products, because they are truly amazing (and worth the investment)!
