I’ve found it. A skin care line to fall in love with. Even marry. I’m designing our rings right now.
What’s it called? Apriori Beauty.
Huh? Never heard of it? Well, it’s a company started by a woman entrepreneur, and represented here on Privilege by Candace the Commenter. That’s not her name, of course, but she’s been reading and hanging out with us for some time. Finally, when I posted about my Kiehl’s use, she suggested I try Apriori.
Which means she put my order in for me, because Apriori is also a company that sells via its website, and representatives, vs. viadepartment stores or Sephora. Network marketing, in other words. Not something in which I ever expected to participate. Silly me. It was lovely not to have to type all my data into the 357,000th online form.
- Fewer little bumps
- More natural color to the skin
- Increased moisture level
- Smells very, very good
- Feels very, very good
- Freedom from fear of parabens and other nasty ingredients
I’m not prone to fine lines, but I imagine if I were, I’d see an impact there too. I suspect that the combination of physical exfoliation and the serums is responsible. Interesting, since I’d been using a Clairisonic without an equivalent impact.
Now, is Apriori fixing my incipient jowls? Returning my flesh to the cheekbone haunts of my youth? No. My underjaw has not lost its terrible appeal to my smile. But I’m jubilant about my skin’s top layers.
Let’s talk details. Apriori is not cheap. The set above can be had for $228. I’ve used up 2 products, the Activating Tonic and the Firming Complex, in 2 months. I confess to having applied with enthusiasm, so maybe these could be eked out a little longer. Other items, Eye and Lip, the optional Micro Scrub, and moisturizer, look to be OK for more like 4-6 months.
If you’ve found your drugstore favorites, you probably don’t need this line. But if you’ve fallen down the stairs of department store skin care and you can’t get up, think comparatively. Kiehl’s firming serum costs $56 for 1.7 oz, Apriori’s is $36 for 1 oz. Perricone toner is $39 for 6 oz, Apriori toner is $36 for 4 oz. Apriori is more, but as a skin care aficianado I’m willing to pay for something that works this well.
Finally, and maybe most importantly, my face feels better. It feels alive. I know that sounds weird, but I am making this as true as I can.
If you’re interested, you can contact Candace and ask for samples. In this case, the skin care comes with a human being. She’s good for advice as well as unguents.
No compensation or free product has been received in return for this post. Candace, bless her heart, offered. I declined so as to make completely clear to you how much I like these goods.
