accént® Moisturizing Lotion and accént® Cleansing Wash - Review and Giveaway

I received products for review. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.

Keep gift giving simple this holiday season and give pretty presents that pamper! Try creating a gift set with your friend’s favorite beauty products by including her favorite perfume, makeup, nail polish, hairbrush, etc. and don’t forget to include new accént® Moisturizing Lotion and accént® Cleansing Wash. New accent® skincare products are the only line of moisturizers and cleansers to utilize Protease Technology, a proprietary blend of plant-based enzymes, amino acids and moisturizers that work in concert offering a skincare regimen like no other product. The brand’s Protease Technology combines ficin (derived from figs), bromelain (derived from pineapple) and actinidia chinensis fruit extract (derived from kiwi) with a blend of advanced moisturizers including hyaluronic acid and amino a cids. Additionally, accent® products include niacinamide (a form of vitamin B3) which helps to activate skin’s natural ability to produce ceramides to protect skins barrier. Now a recommended skincare regimen by dermatologists, accent® products help to soothe and protect all skin types. The accént® products are available at CVS stores and online at drugstore.com. The accént® Moisturizing Lotion is sold at a suggested retail price of $15.99 and the accént® Cleansing Wash for $14.99.

If there's one thing I like to experiement with, it's health and beauty products. I'm not devoted to one particular brand but will purchase some more often than others based upon past experience. There's also some I'll never buy again because they didn't work for my skin. I was excited to try the new accént® Moisturizing Lotion and accént® Cleansing Wash and see if they were up to par with what I expect from products of this type.

I have extremely dry, itchy skin. It's especially bad in the winter. The most affected areas are my elbows, feet, and nose. It's a huge relief when I can find lotions and body washes that relieve the symptoms. After trying accént® Moisturizing Lotion and accént® Cleansing Wash for some time now, I can say I'm generally pleased. Both products are fragrance-free so there's no scents or or perfume smells. I will use products that have fragrances as well as those that don't but have personally found that those without don't irritate my skin so much.

The cleansing wash is a gentle formula that leaves my skin feeling clean after use. It has the right amount of suds and comes out in a pale yellowish color. My husband is fond of this body wash because it doesn't have a feminine smell. The lotion is white in color and is non-greasy. My skin literally feels refreshed and remoisturized when I apply the lotion. I can immediately feel the difference where my skin goes from very dry to very soft. I usually reapply the lotion every three or four hours to keep from drying out. I still have dry, itchy skin at times but it doesn't seem to be as big of a problem if I apply accént® Moisturizing Lotion and cleanse with accént® Cleansing Wash regularly.
