Welcome to day five (of five!) of my 15-year blog anniversary giveaway series…
Today’s giveaway (my last one celebrating my blog’s 15th anniversary!) is all about your FACE, and I’m excite to partner with Naturium today so that 15 of you can get the chance to try their newest innovation. Ever since Naturium launched, I’ve been very into their products; they’re formulated fantastically and their function(s) are all very clear on the packaging. Their products are affordable and I love that they take the stance as a company that not all natural ingredients are good. They also stand that not all synthetic ingredients are bad. Especially when it comes to their formulations (an opinion I also happen to have).
15th Blogiversary giveaway: Here’s Why You Need This Azelaic Acid Product In Your Life
So, let’s take a little dive into their newest launch. One that I instantly fell in love with is the Naturium Azelaic Acid Emulsion 10%. This topical acid (aka chemical exfoliator – my favorite) contains a high concentration of pure azelaic. It also contains other skin brighteners to improve your overall skin complexion. Best of all, it’s PERFECT for all skin types and especially those with sensitive or problematic skin. Yes, even pregnant and breastfeeding women (of course, always consult your doctor first before using).
The emulsion (aka a lighter moisturizer) texture is creamy and lightweight and, for me, I saw a pretty immediate reduction in my mild rosacea (aka facial redness), plus it also soothes inflammation and minimizes uneven skin tone and texture. I use it as my very last product (after retinol or vitamin C), and typically don’t need to apply a moisturizer on top since it doesn’t dry out my skin.
Two more reasons I love azelaic acid (aka AzA)…
1-) It’s first line of defense for melasma and hyperpigmentation.
Well, Aza is actually what most derms will recommend first when it comes to fighting melasma and hyperpigmentation, but most OTC (over-the-counter) versions don’t hit a high enough level, so you usually need a prescription. This Naturium Emulsion actually offers you the highest percentage you can buy yourself (10%), so you know it will actually work.
2-) You can layer it with other active ingredients (yes, even retinol!)
It’s pretty rare that you find an ingredient like this, one that actually works AND that you can also use with retinol, the anti-aging gold standard that sometimes causes redness and peeling for some people. The Emulsion is actually formulated with its own plant-based retinol but you can still absolutely use it with whatever retinol works best for you.
