Radiant: how I look and feel after using skin care products by Sanitas. Achieving bright, even-toned skin is typically the driving force of what I choose to put on my face. I love to look naturally glowy (not shiny) with firm-looking skin. That said, I tried handpicked products from Sanitas to address these skin needs and my skin loves me for it.
Sanitas, meaning good health and wellbeing in Latin, is a female-owned and led skin care company that strives to strengthen the skin holistically with nutritional, topical products. With in-house scientists, lots of research, and education, the company is an industry leader in innovation creating formulas that are high quality and high performing. No toxicity here! Each product is cruelty-free and paraben-free, and created with ethically-sourced ingredients. Even better, the company uses a 360-degree, small batch production approach that includes using clean energy, low water manufacturing, and recyclable packaging.
Sanitas is setting the standard in the skin care industry, by creating multi-purpose, results-driven products that work as promised and serve as antidotes to ineffective and complicated skincare routines. The company believes that “less time at the bathroom sink creates more space for life,” and that’s why they’re committed to creating simple and clean formulas.
Since adding these selections to my regimen, I’ve discovered that each of Sanitas products can be used both alone and side-by-side. Whatever your skin needs and preferences are, Sanitas has effective formulas that can be tailored to your unique goals. Here’s what I’ve been using:
Sanitas’ Lemon Cream Cleanser has given me a newfound love for cream-based cleansers. Cream cleansers are buttery in texture and they tend to be more gentle than gel or micellar cleansers, making them particularly handy for those with sensitive, dry, or maturing skin. Sanitas’ creamy, citrusy cleanser helps detoxify, promote skin renewal, and maintain skin balance without compromising the skin’s natural oils. The nutrient-rich ingredient list includes Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Jojoba oil that softens the skin and brightens its complexion.
I use this cleanser daily in the morning and at night, and I’m obsessed with how smooth it makes my skin look and feel. As a minimalist, I also appreciate how concentrated this cleanser is, needing just one pump to lather my whole face. My personal preference is to remove my makeup with an oil product first then wash with the Lemon Cream Cleanser; however, the cleanser also removes makeup well, so that extra step is nonessential. To use, I massage the Lemon Cream Cleanser with a little bit of water on my face, neck, and décolleté. Next, I rinse using my hands with warm or cool water, and pat dry! No moisturizer is required afterwards, but for that extra glow and locked-in moisture, I then apply the Antioxidant Moisturizer.
The Antioxidant Moisturizer by Sanitas deeply nourishes the skin to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, while leaving the skin plumper and brighter. This moisturizer is formulated with a strengthening blend of shea and avocado butters, hyaluronic acid, and vitamins C, D, and E that promote skin renewal for collagen depleted skin, and restore elasticity and moisture while keeping the skin protected. After cleansing, apply two pumps of the Antioxidant Moisturizer to the skin. Great for normal or combination skin, this moisturizer can be used in your morning and night routines. If you use treatments or serums, moisturizing should be the last step!
This illuminating treatment serum is mixed with Vitamin C (hence the name) and a blend of plant-based, exotic seed butters that reduce skin sensitivity and brighten the skin. This serum is very potent with essential fatty acids that address the visible signs of aging and deliver hydration. Another key ingredient is Squalane, which I was unfamiliar with before using the serum. So, of course I did some research and, in a nutshell, Squalane is the hydrogenated form of a natural “moisturizer” our skin produces, called Squalene (with an “e”). Squalene slows in production starting in our 20s and 30s, which can result in drier and rougher-feeling skin.
The skin identical lipid, Squalane, enhances the delivery of nutrients to prevent and target fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots. The oil is also non-comedogenic and anti-inflammatory, so it won’t clog your pores and it soothes inflammation. The Vita C Serum is lightweight and can be applied right after cleansing and before moisturizing. The serum makes my skin feel super velvety and I especially love using this serum before bed with the PeptiDerm Eye Cream.
As someone who commonly experiences under-eye bags, finding the right eye cream to nourish this delicate area hasn’t been easy. There are lots of eye creams out there, many of which have caused me redness or swelling. And thankfully, Sanitas’ PeptiDerm Eye Treatment treats the skin around my eyes well. This eye treatment is an ultra eye repair cream with a concentrated blend of age defying peptides and vitamins that collectively help diminish fine lines, fade dark circles, and tighten the eye area. Already, my under-eye skin looks even-toned, plump, and is never left itchy or irritated.
I like to apply the PeptiDerm eye treatment both in the morning and before bed at night. Gently pat a small amount under and around the eye area using your ring fingers, starting from the inner corners and working your way up towards the outer corners. Picking an eye cream with nutrient-rich ingredients is crucial, and I’d definitely 10/10 recommend giving the PeptiDerm Eye Treatment a shot.
The Brightening Peel Pads are definitely a new favorite in my skin care line up. When I first read “peel pads,” not going to lie, I was a little nervous. All I could think of was flaky, peeling skin that I couldn’t dare to leave the house with. I waited till the weekend to try it out and after using it, I wished I had started using them from day one. The treatment comes with 50 pads saturated with a triple acid blend that brightens, tones, and reveals clear radiant skin in seconds. The Brightening Peel Pads sweep away dead skin, clear pores, smooth fine lines, and fade dark spots all in one swipe. I love how naturally radiant these peel pads make my skin look, and if you prefer a minimal step routine to brighten your skin, the Brightening Peel Pads are so worth it. To use, take a pad and smooth over your face, neck, and décolleté. Let the solution dry completely, then follow up with moisturizer if desired. Sanitas says this professional strength treatment can be used up to three times per week.
Hydrated skin is healthy skin, and the Sanitas experience definitely delivered. Overall, the brand’s drive to offer results-driven products is evident and I can clearly see a difference in my skin. If you’re looking to invest in better skin care, consider Sanitas’ quality and gentle products. The company also trains and partners with estheticians nationwide to offer facials to customers with Sanitas’ professional-only products and treatments that produce customized, instant, and long term results!
