Devita Products Review

Devita Skin Care
I've been using Devita products for quite a while now, and I've not had any problems. After going through four buying "rounds" of product, my skin looks great and I need no foundation, with the exception of just a touch of tinted moisturizer once in awhile. Devita will make that easier, too, with the addition of Absolute Minerals to their cosmeceutical line of skin care. If this line of products is as high quality overall as the mascara I tested for them, it promises to become my #1 choice in that area, too.
My favorite product in the line is the Optimal Rejuvenation. This is that one product which, if a person only wants to try one item, it would be the O.R. When I started using the line, this was the first product I chose. The ingredients for this product, as well as others, can be found here:
The cost falls close to fairly high end, I would say about the cost of department store lines such as Lancome or Estee Lauder (although I haven't priced them recently). However, with the Devita products, a little goes a long, long way. One of the reps said that, with Devita, less is best, more is just MORE.
Cost wise, I'll use my own skin care as an example: the Optimal Rejuvenation retails for $48.95. One bottle of treatment serums, cleanser, toner, or moisturizer tends to last me around 3 months, longer if I rotate products. Generally, I cleanse ($23.95), tone ($22.95), treat with either Vitamin C serum ($35.95), or Optimal Rejuvenation. I follow with the Evening Rich moisturizer ($24.95), which works better this time of year up here in the cold and windy Northeast than does the Perfecting Time ($20.95), although I do use the Perfecting Time during the day and the Evening Rich at night during the spring and summer months.
For my eyes, I mix a drop of Hyaluronic Serum (which can be used as a moisture boost immediately after toning before other serums, one bottle lasted me 6 months just using it in the drier spots ($49.95), a drop of Under Eye Repair Serum ($23.95) and a drop of Revitalizing Eye Lift Crème ($23.95).
Two nights a week, I use the High Performance Glycolic Acid ($32.95). Both eye creams have lasted around 5 months each (I've only replaced them one time). Over time, and as any age-related skin problems need to be addressed, I will probably try their Capillary Support and their Sun Damage Repair (although I've rarely gotten sun damage, it can still accumulate over the years). They also have moisturizers with sunscreen, as well as masques, body washes, deodorants, hand and body brulees, and gift packs.
All products are paraben and phenoxyethanol free. A list of what they leave out can be found here:
Other products can be found on the website. Ingredients are fully disclosed on each product. Questions are answered promptly and thoroughly. They also have a Facebook page on which questions, remarks, problems, etc. can be posted.
The website is new and has recently been upgraded, as has the packaging. The bottles are glass, which is a nice eco-friendly touch. Their recycling philosophy can be found here:
This is the first company I have found where I can use the product over an extended length of time and my skin doesn't start to react, at which time I have to start looking for something else.
I loved my black soap and shea butter routine. However, I had to eventually give it up because of the reaction problem. I also loved the Sante line. Same problem. With Devita, even after this length of time, I have had no reactions that were negative. I'm really anxious to try their Absolute Mineral line, as well.
Cost wise, doing a Google Shopping search will take you to several sites who sell the products at a significantly lower price. I use Lucky Vitamin and Mother Nature.
