Epionce is one of the skincare brands that I have been curious about. Dermatologist Dr. Carl R. Thornfeldt spent over 20 years researching and developing ingredients to help heal and soothe irritated skin. Many dermatologists make their own branded skincare available to patients. But then they don’t provide much information (if any) about the products. For Epionce, Dr. Thornfeldt backs up his products with information that is detailed. There is even a “magazine” with articles that pertain to the products. The packaging is gender-neutral. There is also no animal testing. There is a lot to like about Epionce. Here’s a detailed review of some of the award-winning, star products.
Exploring the Epionce Skincare Products:
However, what about the products themselves? I got a chance to try some of the Epionce products. It’s good to note that there are plenty of different kinds of cleansers, toners, lotions, masks, face and body lotions, skin barrier creams, and more. They’re organization several ways including by skin type, product type and skin concerns. The idea is to pick the four key products for your skin type and concern that cleanse, protect, renew and correct.
My editorial samples included the Epionce Gentle Foaming Cleanser for normal skin. The Lite Lytic TX Retexturing Lotion is for dry skin. There’s an anti-aging. Reparative Intense DefenseSerum for all skin types. The Intensive Nourishing Cream is for dry/damaged skin to nourish the face, neck and decolletage. The last items is the Daily Sheild Tinted SPF 50 with Titanioum Dixodie (4.3%) and Zinc Olide (9.3%)
There are four different cleansers in the Epionce line. I tried the The Gentle Foaming Cleanser ($36/6 fl. oz.) in a plastic bottle with a press pump top. There is even a cover of the nozzle to protect it. This for normal to combo skin is paraben-free and gently cleanses dirt, oil, and makeup without making your skin feel tight or dry. The milky cleanser has a slight citrus scent. Key ingredients include extracts of orange fruit, lavender, date fruit and willow bark. If a cleanser does its job and doesn’t make your skin irritated or greasy, it’s a good one. This one definitely is.
Epionce Intense Defense Serum ($135/f fl. oz) is an anti Aging Serum that on Amazon, received 74% five-star ratings and 8% 4 star ratings out of 58 reviewers. I can see why. The Epionce Intense Defence Serum is an anti-aging product with Niacinamide in an oxygen-free pump good for all skin types. This “multi-vitamin” serum contains botanical sources of Vitamins A, B, C, D and E for healthier-looking skin. This serum visibly improves the signs of skin aging better than leading professional-strength serums.
This paraben-, fragrance, gluten and sulfate-free product is one you’ll apply twice a day. It’s packed with good for your skin ingredients including it is packed with good for your skin ingredients including extracts of Flax (Linseed) Seed, Spanish Needle, Shiitake Mushroom and oil of cotton seed and raspberry seed. It sounds good enough to eat, but just put in on your skin twice a day!
Epionce Lytic Tx is one of Epionce’s best sellers. But for those who need something more gentle and who have dry skin, Lite Lytix TX ($56/1.7 fl. oz.) is a good choice. that chemically exfoliates in a reasonably gentle way while smoothing the visible appearance of skin texture and imperfections. It’s good for those with blemishes, too. The pump top tube dispenses a lotion infused with a bunch of botanicals including extracts of mellofoam, willow bark, orange fruit, lavender, rosa canina (dog rose) . also avocado and oil oils, shea butter.
There is also a cocktail of skin smoothing Salicylic Acid, Azelaic Acid, Zinc Pyrithione, and Hyaluronic Acid. The product tingles a bit as you wait 5-7 minutes before applying other products. It does reduce redness and guess what? It was designed for skin as sensitive as infants, Your dry skin won’t feel abused as it reduces imperfections. My skin is so sensitive it still was a little red, but definitely not nearly as much as other products of its type.
Finally, we come to the product I think everyone needs no matter what their age or skin type. This is the Epionce Daily Shield Tinted mineral SPF 50 sunscreen ($42/1.7 fl. oz.) with Titanium Dioxide 4.*% and Zinc Oxide 9.3%. The elegant product has no scent and a barely-there tint that really seems to add just a bit of a sheen to your skin. Who doesn’t want a glow? I’m less excited about the packaging. It’s a chubby plastic pump bottle that isn’t oxygen-free.
The sunscreen really is excellent and water resistant for up to 80 minutes. It dries on your skin super quickly without any residue. Other than the Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, the botanicals in this product include sunflower and argan oils, and extracts of rosemary and apple fruit. The product helps protect from UV damage and environmental saboteurs that can lead to signs of aging. It’s on the pricey side but worth it.
The Bottom Line:
I liked these products a lot. If you read my stories regularly, you already know I suffer from sensitive skin. It’s not a real joy if you review skincare as I do. But these products really empowered me to do more than just dab on some SPF and leave it at that.
But my skin isn’t your skin. We are all different. With every skincare product, your expectations have to be reasonable. You aren’t going to turn back the clock from age 60 to age 20. it’s important to check with your doctor (I don’t bludgeon people with this on every review but I try to mention it regularly) if you are unsure about a product. This is particularly important if you are pregnant or nursing, or have sensitive skin, allergies, or any serious medical conditions.
