Skin is in!

Healthy skin, that is. Always in. I was a bit worried that my post-pregnancy experience with Derm Exclusive would not be as wonderful as during my pregnancy…how much was from pregnancy and how much was the skincare.

I have been terrible with taking care of my skin in the past two months. Many nights, especially before I was working out at night, I just wanted to go to bed and a lot of days I would put it off until I showered, and that would be at night! I’ve been so bad that this box of Derm Exclusive has been sitting there untouched since 12/31!

So we’re looking at no pregnancy “glow” and using the products sporadically on skin that was fairly terrible before pregnancy. And still excellent. I’m so happy with these products. I get complements on my skin even when I have had no sleep and am wearing no makeup. I couldn’t ask for better results!

I feel like I may be getting sick, so I had miso soup and sushi to try to kick it…along with lots of tea! I did core/yoga today and it was better than last time. Not great but better and that’s all I can do!

Customer Service

Today has shown a range of customer service from the bad, to mediocre, to excellent.

The bad – I wont name names, but it would be fairly easy to see who I’m speaking about my looking at old posts. We ordered baby room furniture on 9/25. Called to check on it the first time and part of the order was in. Called to check again (actually, there may have been another call in between) on 10/9 and were told they could not locate our dresser and would reorder it. Called to check today and it is no longer in stock and they do not know when it will be, possibly the beginning of November. This wouldn’t be as bothersome to me had they once called us to let us know that items were in or that they were having a problem. All conversations were initiated by us. The items were payed for back on 9/25 and they can’t even tell us that it will definitely be in again. Today, I was told they would see if they could get it for us online. I asked if she would call me back and let me know, and she replied something to the tune of “definitely” or “of course” but when my husband called later she said she was done with us after the last call. So disappointing!

We have now ordered a similar dresser through Amazon and will be getting our money back at the original store.

The mediocre is barely worth mentioning. We went for dinner and the waitress would drop off items and disappear. Everything my husband ordered was brought out incorrectly, and it took forever to find her to get it fixed!

The excellent was Beachbody. I had an issue with one of the Derm Exclusive products I ordered. I get a 90 day package of 7 items. One of the seven had a different consistency than my previous order. They sent me a new 90 day package of all items. And told me to keep the original package. As I would hate to have to go ship products back, just not having to re-pack and ship the items was great news. I would have been happy with just the one product that had the issue being sent out, but I received all seven. Amazing.

I wish more companies had better service. I love when I come across a company that surprises me. Even better when it is a company I choose to work with regularly.

Otherwise, I’m keeping busy! I went to an indoor cycling class on Monday night and I think the instructor was afraid I’d go into labor in class. I took it nice and easy and listened to my body. No jumps or sprints, but definitely a post-ride picture!

Derm Exclusive – 90 days

20121014-084906.jpg

It has actually been a bit more than 90 days since I’ve started using Derm Exclusive, but even the way I felt after a few weeks hasn’t changed.  I still love it.  I have had lots of complements on my skin, I feel that my skin tone is more even, and my makeup actually stays on my face.

Helping that might be that I don’t wear as much makeup because I don’t feel the need to.  But when I do, it stays there.  This is a new thing for me, especially through the summer.

I can’t rave about it enough.  It is called anti-aging skincare, but I have found it to be good for my skin in general.  No breakouts, good tone, less oily.  Love it!  If you want to purchase or get more information, you can find it here.

In other news, I got a flu shot yesterday.  It was my first flu shot ever, but now wont be my last.  My husband gets it each year so I probably should have in the past, but with the baby now it is highly recommended.  My arm is sore, but otherwise I’m good.

Workout yesterday – Prenatal yoga and a walk

4 week Derm Exclusive results

Four weeks and I love it!  The lines I have are less noticeable and my skin tone is even.  So happy I tried this out!

Derm Exclusive is a breakthrough skin treatment system that helps you look younger immediately, with long-term benefits that target all four signs of aging:
-Fine lines and wrinkles
-Sagging skin and loss of elasticity
-Dark spots and uneven skin tone
-Dullness and lack of radiance

It comes in a 4 piece or 7 piece set.  I got the 7 piece and I really like the extra products, but if you have a favorite cleanser and moisturizer the 4 piece has the workhorse products of the line.  Want to try it?  Go to www.allisongettingfit.com and click on the Shop link!
