I am sitting looking at 8 little sample bottles I received this morning and dont have a clue which to use first!!!

I have cleansing milk (assume I use this first)
okusil - whatever that is?
Facial Skin prep?
Alpha Derma CE (heard loads about but when do I put it on?)
Silkia camellia oil

Hope someone can help me soon as I am desperate to try them all!!!

Okusil is for the eye area only. Did you get the Camilia Oil from J&B?

Yep, moving this over to Skincare & Makeup as it's not a review Smile

Order for your products would be as stated by Eve with the Okusil being for the eye area only. I'm not sure about the oil sorry.

If I bought 1oz of the Alpha derma ce how long would it last or is it not really worth getting the small bottle?

Thanks

With a loz bottle of AlphaDermaCE it last me less then 1 month (using on face and neck). If you find you like AlphaDermaCE ounce for ounce the 4 oz. bottle is a much better deal (1oz. 59.95, 4oz. 129.95).

The application of products above is correct. JB advises to apply Prep then AlphaDerma before any other product. If you need more moisture I would apply the Silkia Camellia Oil after AlphaDermaCE is totally absorbed. I have not used Silkia over ADCE as I prefer a cream over it (as needed).

Thanks for all your help... I really would love to buy the Alpha Derma CE but do I need to buy the Skin Prep as well? Money is tight and I am pushing it even ordering the AD at this time....

I think the Skin Prep actually enhances the performance of the ADCE, but you can use the ADCE without it.

About the camellia oil, try to leave the ADCE to absorb for as long as you can before gently applying it. Otherwise, I tend to find it makes the ADCE "ball up".

When AlphaDermaCE first came out they did not have the Prep. AlphaDermaCE on its own did a wonderful job. Approximately one month later they introduced the Mineral Prep. Yes, the Prep does enhance the AlphaDermaCE. If I could only buy one product I would for sure get the AlphaDermaCE. Perhaps later you can add the Prep.

Quick question

I have just received a sample of Vit C serum from psf, would I use this after the Alpha Derma or before it?

Thanks

I would use the prep, then Vit C, then ADCE, then Okusil.

Ditto! That's exactly the order in which my mum uses this regime (with a Vivier 20% serum though).

After reading many of the posts on here with regard to JB...I'm going to get the sample pack to try it out.

To those of you who've used it; how much of a change can you notice when you use it and how soon? AND have other people noticed a difference in your appearance?

Also for those who use the JB regime-I was considering purchasing Relax-a-line. I don't think there should be problem with using this on high impact 'lines' (11 between the eyes, smile lines). If you've used this producte with JB I'd love to hear about it.

Also I think I know the answer to this-but to be sure...After all the treatments are applied you are supposed to follow with a moisturizer correct?

Thanks...
Anita

When I used my trial pack, I noticed that the products felt nice and comfortable on my skin, with no tightness. This was important for me as my skin is very dry. I didn't notice much difference with my fine lines at first, but I did find my face and neck felt firmer.

I've now been using it about 7 or so weeks (Skin Prep, ADCE and Okusil, along with Janson Beckett's C&C Vitamin C Serum). My skin has noticeably changed for the better. Forehead lines are slightly reduced, my "11" lines on my forehead above my nose are completely gone, my fine crow's feet are hardly visible. There's also been a large increase in firmness, plus my complexion is much clearer with hardly any blotchiness (unlike before I started using these products).

I'm been very, very impressed. Particularly as I've used loads of different products in the past and not seen such good results before.

And yes, people have started complimenting me on how great my skin's looking - without them even knowing that I've changed my skincare routine.

As for the addition of moisturiser, many people don't seem to need it. If you have dry skin, though, like myself, you may want to use some after applying the JB products. So see how your skin feels when you use the trial products and then you can decide.

Hope you like them! Very Happy

Thanks majorb,

I put in an order on ebay actually-like Scottishjuls had. Turns out it is coming from goldportbeauty.com - but they are selling it a couple of dollars cheaper than on their site and includes the camellia oil sample. Only reason I went throught ebay is that I got priority shipping for the same amount as JB is charging for ground.

Can't wait to try it...

Anita Very Happy

I got my JB trial sizes and tried them yesterday, I am bummed Crying or Very sad cause I broke out. I've used Strivectin and you would think I'd break out from that but never had.

At 1st I thought I had three cystic pimples; but it's only two and a smaller pimple. This whole month I've used Perricone and not had a breakout even premenstral (which I normally get one or two whitehead).

I wanted this stuff to work. Maybe I'll try again later. Anyone else break out from JB's items?

Anita
