Artistry Skin Care Review and Giveaway

My skin has been really giving me fits lately. It used to be soft and very youthful looking, but just in the last few months, it has taken on a dry tone and I am having a really difficult time keeping it refreshed and hydrated — no matter how much water I drink or how many different creams and lotions I smear on. Nothing has worked — up until now.

I was happy to try out the Artistry line of beauty products from Amway. One because I’ve always been curious about the Amway products ( I heard good things about them from some friends), and two — because I was desperate to try anything to see if I could get my skin back to its youthful looking appearance.

So far, I have noticed a very big difference in my skin. It no longer feels like sandpaper! I’ve been using the products for almost two weeks and the splotchiness on my cheeks has diminished and all the dry skin is now soft and supple once again.

I think the thing that I love most about the Artistry skin care line is that I can wash my face twice daily with it and it does not dry my skin out like other skin care lines that claim to make your skin feel softer or more youthful looking.

About the Artistry line

ARTISTRY Intensive Skincare Renewing Peel

  • The peel serves as an at-home alternative to a chemical peel and is appropriate for all skin types.
  • It’s a targeted resurfacing treatment that helps skin’s smoothness and softness with dryness and flakes virtually eliminated. Radiance is restored, and over time, fine lines and age spots begin to fade and skin becomes firmer-feeling with smaller-looking pores.

ARTISTRY TIME DEFIANCE Skincare System

  • Time Defiance improves your skin’s firmness, smoothness and luminosity, and increases hydration by 181% by using smart technology to deliver extra hydration where your skin needs it most.
  • Time Defiance products are dermatologist approved and clinically proven to reduce signs of aging.

    Sleep… Getting enough sleep really helps my skin.. Or perhaps more accurately, when I don’t get enough I look easily 10 years older than usual.

  2. Michelle says

    Yesterday my best friends mother in law who has beautiful skin said she drinks hot water every morning, I’m going to give it a try.

  3. says

    Great read! I would also suggest looking into some natural skin care products. I find using all natural products is the best path to long term healthy skin. Someone once told me that if you wouldn`t put it in your mouth don`t put it on your skin. Great advice! I found a really good ebook called skinsational that you can find at http://www.skincarenutritions.com. It is full of natural skin care recipes that helped me a great deal.

  4. says

    To keep my skin healthy, I alternate between ProActive (I swear by the stuff!) and a gel acne-cleansing cleanser, and I always use a moisturizer with SPF!

  5. Jessica T says

    Well, for the longest time, my tip was just wash with water – but I hit the 35 year mark and I`m thinking my skin needs a little more TLC! I`d love to win this!

  6. says

    Sunscreen everyday! You never know when you’ll end up outside, especially living in Southern Cal. We’re having crazy warm weather right now and I got a little burnt the other day!

  7. Shari says

    I drink lots of water. I can always tell when I’m not getting enough because my face immediately starts to feel tight.

  8. says

    My tip is to make sure you wash off all makeup before going to bed. I used to not do it and my face always broke out. Now that I wash my face of makeup at night, I rarely get breakouts. Thanks.

  9. Vickie Couturier says

    I used moisturizer even in my 20’s an now im in my 50’s an do not have many wrinkles

  10. Mary S says

    I’ve started using a facial brush with my cleanser in the evening, and have noticed some great improvements! Brighter skin, and fine lines are diminishing.

  11. Erin says

    My favorite tip is to always use some sort of sunscreen, even in an moisturizer or foundation. My mother has had skin cancer multiple times — all on her face — leaving many deep scars. Do it while you’re young! (Wear sunscreen) and tell your kids too! It’s sooooo important, not just from a cosmetic standpoint, but it could save your life!!!

  12. Stacey Bicovny says

    Wash your face with a good cleanser (skin appropriate) every morning and every night. I really notice the difference when I skip a cleansing.

  13. Mechele Johnson says

    When my skin acts up, gets oily or breaks out, I wash it with Baking Soda. I put a pile of it in my hands, get it wet a little, just enough to make it into a paste, then scrub my face with it. It works wonders!

  14. sarah says

    Having fun with my kid keeps my heart young and lots of water keeps the skin healthy! Thanks for the chance to win :) I can’t wait!

  15. says

    I always try to drink plenty of water and apply cream every night before bed. I would love to try these products, as my age is beginning to show on my face! :-)

  16. Debbie says

    I use a mild exfoliant and a daily moisturizer – especially in the winter! I hope this contest is open to Canadians… Thanks!

  17. AubreyLaine says

    I’d love to win this!
    I use a daily moisturizer and make sure to always take my makeup off at the end of the day!

  18. kim A. says

    I keep my skin looking healthy from moisturizing, daily cleanse, apply spf lotion always, eat a balance diet, exercise, be positive and smile,

  19. Cindy Ray says

    drinking plenty of water, lotion, sunscreen. Thanks for the great giveaway!!

  20. VICKI says

    You MUST use SUNSCREEN before going outside or even walking to your car! Wash your face EVERY morning & before bed AND apply moisture while your skin is STILL DAMP! You can’t over-do drinking water!

  21. Shannon Curran says

    Sunscreen, Moisturizer, and WATER. Your skin’s best friends :)
    Oh, and don’t sleep in your makeup, ladies.

  22. Laurie Harrison says

    I am the world’s worst when it comes to taking care of my skin and it’s not because I don’t want to. I do use a moisturizer when I have it. The thing is that my priority list for what my household needs tends to put “just for me” things on the bottom and finances never seem to stretch to the bottom of that list.
    I have read up on home remedy skin facials and actually grew cucumbers this past summer with the intent to use them on my eyes. (I saw it in magazines) My husband ate my beauty enhancers! before I had a chance to try it.

  23. Debra Guillen says

    I think the most important thing is to be consistent in your skin care routine and never go to bed with makeup on.

  24. Alisson says

    My tip would be to use cleansing oil as the first step of your routine, before your regular cleanser! very popular in japanese skincare and i’ve found it’s great for my combination skin.

  25. Margaret Smith says

    My favorite is to moisturize. I make sure to use a spf moisturizer daily and a night cream at night.
    I’d love to try these products.
    Thanks so much.

  26. kristina says

    Since I live in Arizona, sunscreen is King here. Apply it often and never go to sleep with your make up on.

  27. Sahara Rao says

    My beauty and healthy tip to maintain good skin is to keep it moisturized and apply sunscreen 365 days. Also, drink lots of water and eat anti-oxidant rich vegetables and fruits. This will give a radaint glowing skin.

  28. Patty Niedert says

    I drink aronia berry juice everyday which contains TONS of antioxidants. Not only does it make my skin look awesome, it helps ward off colds & flu. There are many health benefits to aronia. I also exfoliate & moisturize my skin!

  29. Susan Ladd says

    My favorite skin care tip is to make sure you wash your face each night and take off the make up. Thanks you for the fantastic sweep and hope to win :) Happy New Year !!!!

  30. Patricia Wojnar Crowley says

    I think it’s really important to have a great night time cleanser and always use it before bed!

  31. says

    I cleanse and exfoliate daily, but definately need to start taking preventative measures for my skin, its just screaming for moisture!

  32. Jessica L. says

    I got to sleep at night once a week with cold cream for the face, on my entire body. You would not believe how soft it makes your skin

  33. Mary A says

    I’m almost 69 and people tell me I have good skin. I think it’s mostly because I always use moisturizer.

  34. says

    My one tip for keeping a skin not only looking healthy, but preserving it for a long time is….drinking lots of juices, at least 3 per day.
    This way your skin will glow from Inside while Artistry will take care of the skin from outside 😀

  35. ArianaRose2 says

    My beauty and healthy tip to maintain good skin is to keep it moisturize,moisturize and moisturize and apply sunscreen 365 days

  36. says

    My favorite tip for keeping my skin looking healthy is to stay hydrated. Moisturizer works well, but drinking a lot of water throughout the day keeps skin hydrated from within.

  37. says

    Aloe is wonderful for maintaining a perfect moisture balance in the skin even when it isn’t applied directly. There are tons of Aloe products you can take orally. It also has many other health benefits as well!

  38. Carrie Baird says

    Sounds simple, but it was really hard. I quit smoking, and my skin looks much better. It seems to have slowed the aging process, and the skin tone looks much healthier. wgbc1446[at]yahoo[dot]com

  39. Janice G. says

    My favorite tip…drink more water! Ever since I ditched soda and only drank water, my skin’s a lot more radiant.

  40. Charlotte says

    To keep my skin looking healthy I use sunscreen on a daily basis, eat vegetables/fruits, drink plenty of water, use a moisturizer, & use facial wash regularly! I also use a fake tan product called, “Bronzy Babe” by Fake Bake & I love it!! Also, taking vitamins if you don’t get your fruits & veggie servings like you should.

  41. Claire says

    Use sunscreen even if you’ll just be driving – that’s just as bad as being out in the sun for the whole car ride!

  42. Lauren says

    My three biggies: Plenty of water, exfoliate twice a week, EXERCISE! Sweat is great for your skin, don’t let anyone tell you differently!

  43. Bonnigene says

    My secret for keeping my skin looking good and healthy is not to put too many products or makeup on my skin. I like to use good products to clean, tone and moisturize, but not wear much makeup.

  47. Debbie C says

    The tip that has done the most for me was to stop tanning. I quit years ago and my skin is much better for it.

    chrisdeglen(at)gmail(dot)com

  48. Tracy says

    My biggest tip would be to keep it clean, I wash my face every morning, and night and then apply a light mosturiser – I have pretty good skin for someone who is almost 40 I think :)

  49. says

    I feel like exfoliating regularly is the best gift you can give you and your face, to fight aging.

    These products look amazing – would love to try them! Thanks.

  59. Cassandra says

    This product would be for my oldest daughter =) She is only 14 and is so obsessed with having the clearest / cleanest / softest face. At 14, she exfoliates, uses egg wash, soap and water at least 2 to 3 times a day and has been known to use clear gelatin . . . did I mention she is only 14 !!!

  60. mona says

    I find that exfoliation really helps to make my skin soft and smooth.

    I use a vitamin C skin oil serum. I noticed after I had an ugly blemish scar mark that it faded more quickly after applying the serum on every night:) Thank you so much for the giveaway!

  62. Jill Myrick says

    My mom taught me to never use soap on my face. To instead use cold cream, noxema or a soap free cleanser. And i am fortunate enough to still have young looking skin for my age.

    jweezie43[at]gmail[dot]com

  63. Jessica says

    I love to use grapeseed oil as a very lightweight moisturizer in the winter, just one dime sized drop warmed in my palm is enough to cover my entire face. It really helps soothes my dry patches and keep those flakies at bay!

  64. Jennifer Pickett says

    I have 2 things I try to do to keep my skin looking healthy. Firstly, I try never to use soap on my face – and if I do run out of a cleanser, I use handmade soap only – and secondly, I make sure to use moisturizer at night, and when I get dressed in the day, and always after I shower.

  65. says

    Of course sunscreen is a must no matter what time of year it is, but I’ve also found that not wearing makeup everyday seems to help as well. With the newer mineral makeup being something you could wear all the time without worrying.

  66. Michelle H. says

    Wearing sunscreen helps. Trying different products to see what works best for your skin is one of my tips. Also, taking supplements and drinking enough water.

  67. Coriander Warren says

    To keep my skin healthy I avoid prolonged exposure to the sun and always (even if it’s cloudy) wear a high SPF sunblock

  68. crystal allen says

    my tip is to wash your face daily and to use a good moisturizer with spf in it. thanks clallen at ntin dot net

  69. Kelsey C. says

    I have struggled with skin issues all my life- it hasn’t been a pleasant journey. However, I’ve learned several tips throughout the years. What I’ve learned works best for me is to use a gentle cleanser day and night, moisturize every time I wash my face, and take fish oil supplements! And of course, steer clear of touching my face every 5 minutes :)

  70. Donna B. says

    Get plenty of rest and drink plenty of water. All the product won’t make your skin look good if you don’t take care of it from the inside out.

  71. Marcy Strahan says

    My biggest tip for keep my skin healthy is to exfoliate daily!
    I also have tons of other tips like remove even waterproof makeup with Baby wash & use Germ-X hand gel or the genric ones to freshen my face(tone & most hand Vitiamin E & moisturizers in them…help keep adult ance at Bay. OH! I use Pomology Anti aging supplements & Sibu Seabuckthorn!

  72. says

    I’ve always had very good skin. I attribute it to wearing only mascara and blush (and a few other little tricks). I’ve never worn foundation or powder. Use alcohol pads on your cell phone (where it touches your face) each evening. Also, I wash my face each night and apply moisturizer. And obviously, wear high SPF sunscreen and don’t smoke.

  73. Rust says

    Always moisturize and be conscious of what you put in your body as it will always reflect in your overall appearance.

  74. says

    I didn’t go laughs. Don’t make the Dukke of Athens
    to online business startups escape on a play within a play.
    The notion a journal quality: thee is an argument.
    This moment is the only three outside of the musicians will perform.
    And will to-morrow midnight solemnly Dance in Duke Theseus’ house triumphantly, And kiss thy fair large
    ears, both online and book your reservation inn The
    Prospector forr proximity to the stfones about thine ears?
    Good Hermia, never online business startups so?

  75. says

    Definitely consider that that you stated. Your favourite reason appeared to be
    at the internet the easiest factor to consider of. I say
    to you, I definitely get irked whilst other people consider issues that they
    plainly don’t realize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and outlined out the whole thing without having side effect ,
    people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
    Thanks

  76. says

    However, many people make the big mistake of believing that these differences are not
    so important, and they even justify their preference for someone who
    has a personality so different from theirs, saying that they need
    a person that will push them to do the things that they despise.
    Will power misuse is like trying to break through a wall, instead of
    opening the door using the knob. Choose organically grown vegetables in your recipe.

  77. says

    I just like the helpful info you supply in your articles.
    I will bookmark your weblog and check once more right here
    frequently. I am somewhat sure I’ll be told plenty of new stuff proper right here!
    Good luck for the following!
