{#EclosBeauty skincare review and giveaway}

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of éclos Skin Care for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

When I was contacted by éclos to try out their éclos Anti-Aging Skin Care Starter Kit, and to offer a second kit to one of my readers, I was really excited. See...I have a little bit of an obsession with trying out new beauty care items. And now that I'm close to my mid 30's and those pesky little fine lines are showing up, I'm even more game for trying out any product that has "Anti-Aging" in the title.

Here is a little bit about the éclos products:
éclos features Apple Stem Cells extracted from a rare Swiss apple which have shown tremendous ability to stimulate skin stem cells, encouraging aging skin to behave like younger skin. Plant extracts, vitamins and anti-oxidants combine with the Apple Stem Cell technology to help minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and tired skin.

When my starter kit arrived I couldn't wait to try out all of the samples. It came in a cute little box and there were six products in the kit...

• Facial Cleanser Skin Prep
• Cellular Activator Face Serum
• Moisture Therapy Regenerative Cream
• Restorative Eye Cream
• Instant Radiance Facial Scrub
• Skin Renewal Clay Mask



They also included an éclos Terry Cloth Head Band and a $3 coupon to use on a future purchase...



The first time I used the products, I noticed two things that made them stand out from other products that I've tried. They have a really great natural fragrance, which includes a clean and fresh blend of all-natural essential oils including rosewood, ylang ylang, palmarosa, cardamom, and geranium. They are also free from parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, or petro chemicals (potentially harmful synthetic chemicals derived from petroleum).

I split the products into two regimens...one which included the Instant Radiance Facial Scrub, and one that included the Skin Renewal Clay Mask. Each separate product was wonderful in its own way. The facial cleanser was very light and foamy, and really felt like it was cleaning off my make-up and the grime from the day. The scrub had a sugar-like texture, and warmed up when I applied it to my face, almost melting away after a minute of massaging it into my skin. The clay mask left my skin feeling tightened and refreshed. The face serum is very light, and I only needed a small amount to cover my entire face. I love the texture and moisturizing quality of the regenerative cream. It left my skin feeling very moisturized and soft, but not at all oily or greasy. And the eye cream was the first product of its kind that I've tried. I noticed that the skin around my eyes stayed soft for up to a day after I had applied it.

Here is a photo from before I used the products. It is hard to tell in this picture, but I do have some fine lines on my forehead, and some more noticeable smile lines...



I noticed after using the products for a week that my smile lines were softer and not quite as noticable, as well as the fine lines on my forehead. I feel like if I continue to use them I will see more noticable results.

Here is an "after" photo and I think you can see a slight difference in my smile lines {the difference is more noticable to me in person}...



These products claim to help restore smooth,youthful texture to skin, tighten pores, and reduce the appearance of fine lines, and I can say from my experience that the products do deliver. They left my skin feeling softer, looking more even and radiant, and also lessened the appearance of my fine lines.

So would you like to try the éclos Anti-Aging Skin Care Starter Kit for yourself? They have generously offered a kit for one of my lucky readers!
