Everything You Need To Know About Allies Of Skin
Forget makeup, it's all about skincare
Skincare is in. With masks covering half of everybody's faces, and fewer events to show up off a red lip anyway, we've noticed everyone turning from makeup to skincare products.
From a very official staff poll (our weekly no-work-talk-allowed Zoom meeting), the focus was on clean, effective products for smooth, healthy, and radiant skin.
And yes, effectiveness should be a given, but there's a lot of low-quality stuff out there! We're done with watermelon-scented moisturizers that only have short-term hydrating effects.
We want RESULTS. So when one of our writers (thanks, girl) recommended Allies of Skin, the rest of us were slowly won over, and we need to tell you about it: it's performance-driven skintelligence that's really become the backbone of our 2021 skincare journey.
Here's what you need to know about Allies of Skin.
First off, what is it?
Allies of Skin is a line of results-focused skin products that don't seek to cover up problems; the formulas act as supercharged multi-functional skin care so your skin functions as it should solve any skin problems in the first place.
They choose ingredients that benefit skin health, which leads to fewer breakouts and radiance.
What's different about it?
Their formulas are extremely precise and are the closest thing we have to smart skincare. The founder, Nicolas Travis, is a perfectionist who went through 12 rounds of revisions over 2 and half years for the company's first product; Allies of Skin only develops skin-supportive formulas where every single ingredient is working in synergy to attain optimal skin health.
Everything is derm-tested and hypoallergenic - they skip any potential irritants.
On their website, you'll find full ingredient transparency; not just the list of ingredients, but their percentages, so you can see that they're active. They're also cruelty-free which we love.
Ok, but what do I buy?
On their website, there's a 2-minute quiz called the Regimen Recommender to help you figure out a personalized routine: they ask about your age, sleep habits, blue light habits, and your skin concerns. Then you can sign up to become an ally and get your results to start your regimen.
However, you can also skip the quiz and get straight to what you want.
Everything we've tried is fantastic, but these are the ones we're talking about the most:
- 35% Vitamin C + Perfecting Serum
- "for all skin types – especially dull, pigmentation-prone and premature ageing"
- Multi Nutrient & Dioic Renewing Cream
- "for all skin types – especially tired, stressed, and breakout-prone"
- Mandelic Pigmentation Corrector Night Serum
- "for all skin types – especially premature aging prone to excessive discoloration and breakouts"
- Peptides & Antioxidants Firming Daily Treatment
- "for all skin types - especially fatigued, dehydrated, and premature ageing"
- Promise Keeper Blemish Sleeping Facial
- "for all skin types - especially problematic, prone to stress, and hormonal breakouts."
What about price?
Skincare is most definitely an investment but that's why we love these 6 products in particular. Allies of Skin offers a subscription for these products which allows you to save 30% on your purchase and stay on track with your regimen.
Never run out of any of your skin essentials and it's flexible so you can cancel your subscription at any time.
We're in love with the packaging! Not too showy, and looks great on any bathroom counter.
It seems like there's a new "must-have" skincare product every single week, so we're really happy to have found a solid, reliable brand. Allies of Skin doesn't do flashy goops, they create derm-approved formulas to actually work on your skin health from the inside out.
These have what so many other skincare brands don't: true efficacy. Buying from Allies of Skin is a sound investment for your skin that you will not regret.
