I used the following below products tonight. I'm first listing the company's product description and then closer to the end of the post I will be stating my review of this line. There are other skincare products available from Skinshift which I will be reviewing at a later point. There is also a DNA test you can take and have customized skincare built for you. Stay tuned for a later review on that as well!

My thoughts:
  • No, I didn't skip a number. Each product is numbered to make it easy for use. #1 is the facewash, #2 the toner, #3 the serums, and #4 the moisturizer. This is the standard way you should apply your skincare. 
  • You may also notice on the website there are 4 different serums. Each has a different purpose and targets a different problem area. You can layer these under your moisturizer, as I did here using the two serums above. 
  • The face wash was a lightweight gel with a minimal light scent that was not irritating. My skin felt really refreshed and clean after use. 
  • The serums also had a very nice lightweight feel, minimal scents, if any. My skin wasn't irritated and actually feels incredibly soft. 
  • My final thoughts are that my skin feels soft, clean, and refreshed. I actually keep touching my cheek because my skin is just that soft! 
Stay tuned as we will be providing more Skinshift reviews, including their DNA based skincare.

Yours in Beauty, 



  1. I like that it is a numbered system and that there are different serums to make it really work for your skin.

  2. I like that too. Most lines would just have one serum but I love this has four meant to be layered and work together especially since my skin's needs vary day by day.

  3. This is a great review, thank you. I've taken the Skinshift SkinDNA test twice now (for the sake of research so I used different names each time), and I received a different result for each time! That is very suspicious because DNA is never supposed to change. I understand that the skincare is based on the genetic test, but with that sort of margin of error I'm not a believer in this product. Speaking to an employee at Skinshift the tests are sent off to a lab in Australia. Speaking to that lab in Australia I discovered that they are sending it to a lab in China. Very suspicious if you ask me. Why send it to one company, and then have the other company send it to another company when we in the USA we lead genetic testing. Again, great review!!! Suspicious product though!
