Call Me Ponce de Leon Because I Discovered the Fountain of Youth

skinceuticals-blog

New products are constantly landing on my desk, all touting the latest and greatest technology, boasting the newest and trendiest ingredient and all of them promising to be the miracle skin solution that I have been searching for. I’ve been in the beauty business for a while and our site carries over 28,000 different products, so to say that I am jaded when it comes to beauty products is an understatement. I know the kinds of products I like—no-fuss, minimal steps—and stick with those products, unless of course something amazing and FREE winds up on my desk because, aside from being jaded, I’m cheap. Which is why, despite years of hearing how amazing it is, I have never tried the life-changing serum that is SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic. At $157.00, it isn’t the cheapest antioxidant serum out there, but my coworkers—and just about every beauty editor I have ever met—swear on their Clarasonic that this little bottle is the answer to anti-aging. Actually, I remember reading a post over a year ago on Glamour.com from one of their beauty editors. TSA would not let her take her C E Ferulic through security despite it being within the carry-on guidelines. Her options were either to throw it out and make her flight or check her bag and take a later flight. She, a beauty editor who has every product at her disposal, opted to check her bag and miss her flight rather than toss the serum. Even after reading that, I could not bring myself to purchase it.

Finally, a few weeks ago, a brand new (FREE) bottle of C E Ferulic landed on my desk and let me tell you: Oh. My. Gosh. There is a reason it has 345 5-star reviews and wins every beauty award there is. This stuff is liquid gold. After just two weeks of using it, I feel like I discovered the fountain of youth. My skin looks so much smoother and brighter, I am not constantly staring at my pores, and it even has helped a few acne scars heal! The instructions say to use 4-5 drops on your face and neck, so what I do is use the dropper to drop the product directly on my face so as to not accidently waste any of the product. Anyone who sees me doing this—using the dropper directly on my face instead of my fingertips like a normal person—would probably think I’m a weirdo, but there are very special ingredients in there that cannot be wasted! This super serum uses 15% pure L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C), 1% alpha tocopherol (vitamin E) and ferulic acid to diminish and prevent visible signs of aging. It also neutralizes free radicals, shields against UV damage, enhances collagen production and conditions and brightens the skin. Basically it does everything.

I know not everyone has a job where bottles of miracle products show up on her desk, so DermStore is giving you a chance to have a mini-miracle bottle show up on your doorstep! Six very lucky people will receive a SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic 4ml deluxe sample. All you have to do is tell me in the comments below whether or not you would miss a flight to save your favorite beauty product. Six winners will be selected at random on 5/16.

*Congrats to our winners:

1.) Natalie Dylan

2.) Jamie B.

3.) Parissa

4.) Eustacia Milusis

5,) Susan Stickney

6.) Sarah M.

    1) Book a later flight
    2) call a friend to meet & pick up product(s) from the airport
    3) Smile to the TSA person as you whiz by without the offending necessity in your take on bag!

    I would not miss my flight to save my favorite beauty product ! Having a couple of favorite products by my side is very essential for my skin to be happy, since I struggle with hormonal breakouts every week.
    Thank you for this opportunity!

    My favorite beauty product is Pur Minerals Wine Exfoliate Mask. If the flight security told me that I would have to throw it out, I would throw it out with the biggest sad face in the world. After I land home, I would drive home, and go online to buy TWO bottles from Pur Minerals! Then I’d be the happiest girl ever!

    If it works that well and cost that much I’d probably check it and take the next flight out!!! You can’t look or feel your best on vacation unless you have your favorite products with you!!!

    I would definitely miss my flight and take a later flight to save this miracle serum and my favorite cream. I have extremely dry and some lines due to thyroid cancer and medications that must be taken daily as a thyroid replacement. Please help me rescue my beauty must have products.
    Thanks,

    Yeh! I would miss a flight! Or better yet I could also check my favorite beauty product and bring it with me! My skin and health are more important then anything.

    Absolutely!!! I had a bottle of this and knocked half of it over on my bathroom counter. I cried for days. :/

    Posted May 13, 2014 at 3:38 am | Permalink

    That would be a rather difficult decision for me, too. I guess it depends on if I would be going to a place where I could easily buy another one to replace it! If not, I would consider taking a later plane under the condition that I would not cause a problem for others.

    Hmm tough question – would I miss a flight to save a favorite beauty product? I guess it would depend on the product and where I was going…. evasive I know, but at least its an honest answer

  22. Posted May 13, 2014 at 8:08 am | Permalink

    I’d do my best to flirt my way out of it but if the TSA agent wouldn’t budge, I’d give it up. Sadly, I would spend more than $157 at the airport waiting for another flight. :)

    I would def miss a flight in the name of an amazing anti-aging product…especially if it meant getting to spend extra time on vacation. And then I’d prob miss the next few flights, just for fun, since I hear fun helps keep you looking young too.

    I couldn’t miss a flight – since I fly home the very last minute to get my son to school and me to work the next day.

    If it’s that good that I’d contemplate missing a flight, I’d probably pick up a travel size version after I arrived at my destination and share it or gift it to whoever is hosting me or a friend I’d likely meet up with at my destination. Sometimes a vacation is one of the best beauty and rejuvenation treatments out there! :)

  26. Alicia
    Posted May 14, 2014 at 11:52 am | Permalink

    Is there a way that I could ship it back to myself, so that I don’t miss the flight? I’m all about finding options so that I don’t have to miss my flight or lose my fave beauty product! :)

    Oh it depends on the product! But most likely, I wouldn’t miss a flight for the product. I’d just hope wherever I land sells my fave! ;D

  32. Linda F

    I would be so upset if I forgot my favorite product but I wouldn’t miss my flight. I’d have someone back home overnight it to me on my trip. Or, if it was something I could repurchase while on my trip, I’d buy another one or get some samples to hold me over until I returned. I’ve actually had this happen to me once before!

  54. Posted May 15, 2014 at 9:34 pm | Permalink

    Yes I would miss my flight, if the product was as good as you say. I have tried so many products. None seem to work, as well as they are advertised to. Since I have gone on a journey of radiation, and chemo, my skin as really been through some stressful times!! It would be wonderful to find a product that really works.

  55. Andrea Pfouts
    Posted May 16, 2014 at 12:14 am | Permalink

    Well, it depends. If the bottle was new, half full or more, I would miss the flight and check it in my luggage. If the bottle was only a third full or close to empty I would throw it away & get on my flight. Thank You!

    Ummmm, why yes I would miss that flight! lol You are right that there are so many products saying that THEY are THE one that will fix all of your beauty problems and most of them aren’t, so if I were to find a product that works so well, and especially if it were expensive, yes I would miss the flight. :) Thanks for the chance to win!

    Oh my that’s a tough one. I guess it depends, if I’m traveling by myself, I very likely would miss the flight. But, if I’m with someone like a co-worker or friend, I guess I’d still fly. But I might beg TSA to hold my product for me lol That I would do!

  62. Sabrina Belvedere

  64. Josephine A
    Posted May 16, 2014 at 8:37 am | Permalink

    It all would depend on much use I’ve gotten out of it and how much I spent. Some products are $100-400+! So it depends on the cost of my product I’m carrying with me.

    omg that would be tough! Especially if I think about a very pricey skin care product my husband bought me, yikes, that’d be tough! Maybe I’m too sentimental ;)

  68. Posted May 16, 2014 at 8:43 am | Permalink

    I would miss the flight. I mean, a lot of these have time released active ingredients and can be very pricey in themselves. So long as the air line will let me reschedule I’m going with beauty.

  69. Magdalena P

    I wouldn’t miss a flight to save my favorite beauty product. That would be extremely stressful. Stressing makes you appear to age faster and would cause more wrinkles resulting in the need to buy even more beauty products to reverse the signs of aging that missing my flight caused.
