Miracle 10 Skincare Travel Collection*, $135.00
Hello, beauties! Now, it's no secret that I'm trying to figure out a proper skincare routine. With stubborn, difficult skin and the plethora of products out there, it can be hard to figure out just what, exactly, to put on my face. Let's not even talk about deciding what should be used at night versus during the day! So when Miracle 10 contacted me asking to be friends and offering up a full, foolproof routine to try, I was down faster than you could say, "Cleansers, creams, and serums. Oh, my!". Today, I'll be introducing you to Miracle 10's Skincare Travel Collection and letting you know whether it truly puts the "miracle" in "Miracle 10"!

Miracle 10 is a Canadian boutique skincare line created by The Plastic Surgery Clinic. While that might sound a bit scary, trust me when I say that the products are anything but. Miracle 10 are fantastic at assessing skin types and setting you up with the products needed to get your skin in tip top shape within 10 weeks. I've gotten to sample the Travel Collection, and while the sizes are great for those weeks spent vacationing, I've found it is also an excellent way to get a primer on the brand and experience a regimen before plunking down a good bit of your hard earned cash. Miracle 10 breaks down skin types into three categories: Normal/Maturing, Acne-Prone/Oily, and Delicate/Dry. Each regimen consists of five products that make sorting your day and night routines a cinch. I received the Delicate/Dry collection, so let's take a closer look!

Miracle 10 Cleanser I | Full Size, $36.00:
The Miracle 10 Cleanser I is a gel cleanser packed with nutrients such as aloe, grapefruit extract, and vitamins C and E. A couple of pumps massaged onto the face gives you a light lather that leaves your skin feeling smooth and soothed. It has the lightest of scents that can only be described as slightly creamsicle-like, so it won't be an irritant to your face or nose. I found that it left my skin feeling moisturized without being oily and instantly gave me a brighter, more radiant glow in just one use, so you can imagine how fresh it made my skin over time. A definite winner!

Miracle 10 Toner | Full Size, $34.00:
Next up we have the Miracle 10 Toner which helps to correct the PH balance of your skin. Chock full of ingredients such as witch hazel for clarifying, aloe and chamomile for soothing, and hyaluronic acid for moisturizing, this toner applies well and leaves your skin smooth and even once it dries. I did find it a tad bit more drying than I would have expected, but it levels off quickly once your skin reaches balance. I even found that it helped to exfoliate a bit as my dry patches started to shift. It has a light herbal scent which I enjoy, but it may not be everyone's cup of tea. Still a worthy product, in my opinion.

Miracle 10 Light Serum | Full Size, $69.00:
The Miracle 10 Light Serum is your next step in the day routine in place of a traditional moisturizer. I have to admit, it has a strong herbal scent which is probably the worst of any product I've smelled. I really didn't like that. However, once on, the scent dissipates quickly. The serum is loaded with A, B, D3, E and K vitamins, as well as ginseng and lavender to really nourish the skin while leaving it hydrated. It does feel a bit oily at first, so if you do have any oily bits, I'd recommend not applying it there. But it does eventually sink in leaving you with a smooth finish. And if you have any dry patches left as I do, throw a bit of moisturizer or another dab of serum over those spots and you'll be good to go!

Miracle 10 AHA Cream| Full Size, $64.00:
For you night routine, the Miracle 10 AHA Cream will take the place of the light serum as your third step. Once again you have the signature herbal scent, but it's not as overpowering as the Light Serum. It also feels a bit oily when first applied, but dries down nicely. I did feel a slight burning sensation on my dry patches, but it disappeared within a few seconds and left no after effects. A little definitely goes a long way, so don't slather too much on in one go. Featuring lactic acid and vitamin E, this cream will help eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, as well as giving a gentle exfoliation to make skin smoother over time.

Miracle 10 Night Cream| Full Size, $58.00:
The Miracle 10 Night Cream is the final step in your night routine, but is optional if your skin is feeling a little weighed down already. It's quite light and moisturizing, so it makes an excellent day cream, too. However, I would recommend, once again, to not throw it over any oily spots. For me, that's my chin and around my nose. It also gave me a tingly sensation and had a strong herbal scent, but it goes away quickly leaving no traces of redness or scent behind. The Night Cream creates a silicone barrier to lock in moisture, and the hyaluronic acid contained within makes sure your skin is as hydrated as possible. Apply a couple of pumps to your face, and get ready for some true beauty sleep!

Overall, I really liked the Miracle 10 Skincare Travel Collection, and found that over time my skin looked more even, radiant, and was softer than it had been in a long while. It wasn't able to do as much for the hormonal acne that crops up on my chin, but that is something that I'm afraid will end up having to be sorted by a dermatologist. The everyday dryness and spots that I tended to get across my forehead and chin reacted far better, and for that I couldn't be happier. My skin felt hydrated without being clogged, and makeup laid gorgeously atop the foundation that this skincare regimen provided. While the set is quite pricey, if you are a skincare junkie and you haven't given this brand a look, I'd absolutely recommend that you do. It is completely lush and a great hidden gem of the skincare world!

Have you tried any products from Miracle 10? Are you a skincare junkie?

Stay gorgeous, peaches!
