Miracle Skin Transformer: Complete Starter Beauty Transformation System

Just when I thought it wasn’t possible to make a product better than what was already available, Miracle Skin Transformer owner Sarah McNamara does just that.

Introducing the Complete Starter Beauty Transformation System

 

Currently you can find Miracle Skin Transformer at places like Sephora and Nordstrom, but this amazing kit is only available on their website. Included in this kit is the tried and true Treat & Conceal and Face SPF20, as well all the all new HydroActive Cleanser, HydroActive Microderm and a Refining Brush.

 

The purpose:

To prep and transform your skin into a flawless complexion.

 

Prep Skin:

Day & Night: Miracle Skin Transformer Hydroactive Cleanser

Refining Brush & HydroActive Cleanser

The hydroactive cleanser gently dissolves dirt, oil, makeup, and other impurities from your skin, making it perfect for morning and night use. The product starts out in a whipped texture and transforms into a comforting cream when you begin to blend it against your skin with water. It has been formulated to maintain your skins natural moisture levels while it melts away your makeup. What you end up with is a refreshed face that is not only clean, but soft and hydrated.

Key Ingredients:

The Miracle Skin Transformer Hydroactive Cleanser is infused with the M3 Complex, a powerful botanical antioxidant blend that works hard to fight free radicals. In addition, EcoPhysalis, Manuka Honey, and Vitamins help soothe and soften, for clarified and luminous skin.

Rating: A+

 

Occasional Usage: Miracle Skin Transformer  Hydroactive Microderm

Refining brush & HydroActive Microderm

The hydroactive microderm combines micro-exfoliants, natural extracts, and high-grade micronized magnesium oxide crystals to smooth, refine, and polish skin’s texture. By gently polishing the skin, dead skin and cells are removed, leaving your skin feeling smooth. Continued use of this can renew your skin by softening and refining the look of your skin and even diminish the visible signs of aging. The product smells amazing, reminding me of Philosophy’s the microdelivery peel.   Owning the product just mentioned, while I like it, I prefer the simplicity (and cost) of this product.

Key Ingredients:

Infused with the M3 Complex, a blend of marine collagen algae, vitamins and antioxidants, allow for increased hydration and more luminous skin.

The Refining Brush

The Refining Brush is one of the many features of the Starter System and while it is not as complex as the Clarisonic, the two attachments provided (sponge and brush) are easy to attach and simple to clean. Massages the product into your skin while providing the quality cleaning you hoped to achieve. Currently you cannot purchase the brush as a standalone item.

Miracle Skin Transformer SPF20 Face and Treat & Conceal

After you have prepared your face for makeup, the second phase of this system provides you with the Miracle Skin Transformer SPF20 Face and the Miracle Skin Transformer Treat & Conceal. Both of these products are hands down a staple in my day-to-day routine and have become Holy Grail items since first use.

Before and After Using Miracle Skin Transformer SPF20 Face & the Treat & Conceal

The Miracle Skin Transformer Face does five jobs in one (hydrate, prime, enhance, mattify, and protect) while the concealer focuses on correcting, covering, and protecting your skin. Both products come in four shades to choose from and contain the same M3 Complex that works to safeguard your skin while making you appear red carpet ready with flawless skin. As you can see in my Before and After pic above, I have some breakouts on my cheeks and dark spots under my eyes. With a small amount of this product (emphasis on small), my face appears flawless and my confidence soars.

Rating: A+ for both products.

Cellure: Stem Cell Skin Care

There comes a time in every person’s life when their skin isn’t as quick to bounce back after a bad breakout, the winter weather leaves the face dry and cracked, and/or age catches up with you. No matter what category you fit into, I guarantee this product can help you.

I’ve been introduced to a product that not only made my skin feel amazing after the very first use, it is taking cutting-age, state-of-the-art science and technology and making it an integral part of the beauty industry.

Cellure is a product that applies the same stem cell technology used to cure diseases to slow down, rewind, and/or halt the aging process. The idea that this product can do such a hefty task is mesmerizing, essentially a “Death Becomes Her,” one size fits all in a bottle beauty regiment.

The Science Behind It:

As a biology teacher with a love for science and a special place in my heart for genetics and heredity, this product sounds amazing. One of my lessons deals with the advances of modern medicine in today’s society. We already have the ability to create Designer Babies, preventing something as serious as a disease from spreading by selecting the “good gene” over the “bad” one to something as “cosmetic” as gender determination. The idea of using stem cells to further the beauty industry, signifies this technology is here to stay and that it is finally beginning to be accepted by the world. It will offer what every man, woman, and teen wants to know – how to reverse the signs of aging by keeping our skin healthy and vibrant for as long as possible.

Scientists have discovered that stem cells have the ability to become any type of cell in the body – when the body needs to repair itself, they send out proteins necessary for healing. With this technology, scientist’s have harvested lipoprotein, a product of stem cell replication. THIS is the ingredient that has been known to not only prevent cancer (the uncontrolled cell growth due to mitosis), but heal burns, and the purpose this product was created: to stop aging.  image

 

How this works:

The products are paraben-free and tag-teams with your skin’s natural defenses, sending out “soldiers” to repair and restore damaged skin.  This product states it will do the following:

  • Reverse Cell Degradation
  • Increase Cell Regeneration
  • Infuse Moisture
  • Fill in Empty Spots
  • Smooth Sagging Skin and Wrinkles

What to do:

If you are going to do this right, you need to use every product in this line. I tested a sample of each from the full line of products: 

The directions are straight forward explaining what you need to do and you can purchase this product online or by visiting their NYC flagship store.

 

PRO’s

  • The products had a very light smell that reminded me of something I would find at a fancy store or private country club. It wasn’t overwhelming, but I found it relaxing.
  • A little bit of product goes A VERY LONG WAY! I received two samples (one for day and one for night) and I probably could have used only half of one sample for all of the products (it stated it was enough for one daytime use) saving the rest for another day.
  • My face immediately felt rejuvenated and appeared to have an added glow to it.
  • Items can be bought individually, allowing you to purchase the entire package slowly or to focus on a problem area (such as the eyes) where cell degeneration occurs rapidly.
  • Daytime vs nighttime plans to focus in on the areas where there is the most damage. 

 

CON’s

  • The entire packaged deal comes with a rather steep price tag that the average working family cannot afford. The entire system will cost you $599 USD. Even though I believe the science behind this product is phenomenal and it’s a product that is more than likely worth every penny, until this product is one that is accepted by health insurances, it’s primarily going to be available to those obsessive shoppers with large credit card limits and the top 2% of the population or those of “upper class” status. Catering to the elite and celebrities and those with large amounts of money really bothers me because everyone deserves to feel beautiful and experience the feeling of their skin rejuvenating.  From their website, it looks like this company is trying to reach out to dermatologist and doctor’s of the like, so maybe this will be in your treatment plan in the near future.
  • The process is a long one. There are two treatment plans – one for day and one for night. DAY: Restart-Recode-Regenerate-Rework-Rebuild and the NIGHT: Restart-Recode-Regenerate-Rework-Recover. This may not be a problem for most, but I’m used to a 3-step process at the moment.

Those of you that try this product line out, let me know what you think. I’m still in shock of what we are doing with stem cells and it makes me miss studying genetics more than anything. I will be saving a sliver each month until I can purchase the full line because knowing how soft and silky it made my face feel after I used it for one day, I had to do a double take to make sure I hadn’t been dipped in gold.
