Sense' Prelude 5 Review and Giveaway!

 I was asked to review the Sense' Prelude 5 line of Products that is produced and manufactured by Usana.  Shonda Knowlton, an Independent Usana Distributor, sent me sample sizes of the basic Sense' Skin Care Line to try and compare their line to what I normally use.

Sense' Beautiful Science is a complete line of personal skin care products free from added chemicals. All products are manufactured by Usana Health Sciences in the United States and are formulated with a patented Self-Preserving Technology. The products provide topical nutrition and anti-aging technologies on the cellular level. Sense' received Best of State for Personal Care Products 2 years in a row! Leeza Gibbons is a fan of these products, as were other celebrities in Hollywood when it was presented at the 2009 Primetime Emmy Awards Style Lounge in L.A.


First, I used the Gentle Daily Cleanser.  I found it to be thicker than the cleansers that I use.  It doesn't foam and the idea is to spread it onto your skin and remove it (along with built on dirt) with a wash cloth.  I liked how the smell was light and natural.


Next, the Hydrating Toner was used and again, it was different than what I normally experience with toners.  This toner was thicker in consistency and could almost pass as a light lotion.  It helped my skin feel moisturized and clean!


 The Perfecting Essence is to be put on after cleansing and before moisturizing.  It has Dermal Surface Renewal Technology, which means that it boosts the skins natural renewal process and diminishes blothes, age spots and fine lines.  It felt very light and I didn't feel like I had anything on my skin.  Apparently, though, it was doing its job!


The Daytime Emulsion was really nice and I could tell that it was full of natural ingredients, which is what I love in a skin care product!


Finally the Night Renewal Creme has Regenisomes Enzyme Technology that helps boost cell recovery to help reduce the appearance of aging!


My Opinion:  These are obviously high quality products and the thing that I liked the most is the patented technology that allows these products to be self preserving.  In other words, they don't need artificial ingredients to help them keep their shelf life.  The natural ingredients in them keep the product integrity.  I really liked the smell and the way they felt on my skin.
Sensé beautiful science® skin-care products offer an innovative approach to skin care. With groundbreaking, patented Self-Preserving Technology, Sensé™ products contain no added chemical preservatives—meaning they stay fresh naturally—so they are more gentle and healthy for even the most sensitive skin. Our skin-care specialists have carefully formulated exclusive antioxidant complexes in every product using ingredients proven to revitalize skin cells, leaving skin looking younger and more radiant.
Your skin is the last organ to receive nutrients from the body and often the first to show signs of nutritional deficiency, imbalance, or the unhealthy effects of free radicals. True health and beauty requires a synergy of internal and external nutrition, as well as protection from the environment and oxidative damage, which can accelerate the appearance of sagging and wrinkling.
Developed by USANA Health Sciences, Sensé products are formulated to properly nourish and hydrate your skin’s cells. The Sensé beauty regimen is designed to be a comprehensive approach to skin and hair care that takes into account the nutritional needs of both the skin and body.
 To Get these products:  Go to Shonda's Usana Website, where you can read more about Sense', order online, enroll in their program, or become a distributor!

WIN:  Shonda has graciously offered to give one of my readers their own full size (1.3 oz) tube of Daytime Emulsion (a $39 Retail Value), complete with patented Regenisomes!
