I’ve been searching for quite a long time to find a skin care routine that would give me not only better looking skin as a woman in midlife, but the confidence to know I was using the proper products for my skin.
Not someone else’s skin. Not a product that was mass produced for millions of women whose skin is not like mine.
I’m not even sure how I found Beauty By Design, but

What caught my attention with Beauty By Design (BBD) is the fact that their products are recommended for you, personally, based on your answers to some specific, skin related questions, budget preferences as well as providing a head shot for them to actually see your skin.
But even better than that, your
I also love the fact that all of the proprietary skin care products offered are:
- No synthetic fragrances
- No hormone disruptors
- Made in
Keep in mind that these skin care products are for women of all ages and skin types, not just the more mature set like me. 🙂
Beauty By Design is the first skincare company providing advanced formulas with unlimited guidance from your own personal Esthetician.
The Specifics of Working with Beauty By Design
This is the process I experienced the first time I went to the BBD website:
- I clicked on the ‘Get Started’ button and responded to some questions about my skin….not particularly difficult but very important to be honest.
- I submitted a photo of myself as mentioned above as well as indicating which budget range (there were 3) I was most comfortable with. That was an important feature to me, as I don’t want to be presented with, or pressured into, purchasing products that are above my ability to afford.
- In order to receive my skin care
adviceI paid a $15 fee, to be refunded on my first order,if I chose to purchase products from them.
- At that point, my part in the process was complete. Now I waited to hear back, via text, from one of their Estheticians with my skin care plan.
Shortly after submitting the information and fee I received a ‘welcome’ text message from one of the assistants at BBD, letting me know that they had received my information and I would be hearing back from an Esthetician with my personalized SkinScription.
A day or so later I received a comprehensive text from Erica, my Esthetician, introducing herself and telling me what she was going to create for me in terms of a skin care plan, all based on my responses and photo that I submitted.
Later that day I received both a text message and an email with detailed product information as well as instructions on how to use all of the recommended products that were selected specifically for me.
I was impressed with both the quick turnaround time and the detailed information received from Beauty by Design
Note that all through this process, Erica, my Esthetician, was always asking me if I had any questions or concerns along the way. I liked that.
What I Chose to Order from Beauty By Design
Erica suggested five products for me based on the priorities that I submitted in my evaluation as well as the photo:
- Amino-Peptide Cleanser
- Restorative Treatment Serum
- Smoothing Eye Treatment
- Regenerating Moisturizer
- SPF 30 Mineral Treatment
I decided to purchase all of the recommended products. If I was going to do this, I would be all-in.
The products were selected to fit my budget, which is not huge. The total for all five came to $152.00 for a 2 month supply. After the $15 fee was applied as well as a promotional discount of %15 for my first order.
The adjusted total was $116.45 for a 2 month supply of five products selected specifically for me.
What do I Think?
My Beauty By Design Review?
After two weeks of using my Beauty By Design skin care products, I have to say that I’m impressed. Really.
My skin has not felt this good in a long, long time. It feels smooth and firm, not greasy…not dry. Just right.
The only product I am not currently using is the SPF 30 Mineral Treatment, because I am not outdoors for more than a minute or two in this cold weather we’ve been experiencing.
As soon as we return to a ‘normal’ winter in the Midwest I will use it, as an SPF protector is needed throughout the year, not just when it’s warm outside.
I can say with confidence that I will continue to use Beauty By Design products, as they are doing really good things for my skin! I think that this group of products in conjunction with the neck firming cream I wrote about recently and the natural facelift program I practice is an awesome combination of products and activities that will help me look my best as I go through the natural aging process.
Although I have only had a couple of questions for my Esthetician, I know that at any time I can text Erica and she will be happy to help.
One more very important point, and that is…I will re-order products at my choosing, when I want. No auto refills, thank goodness!
I have found it very frustrating to purchase a product and be put into an
UPDATE 7/25/19: It has now been almost 6 months that I’ve been using the Beauty By Design products, and yes, I’m still very happy with the look and feel of my skin!
I’ve reordered a few of the products, under the direction and guidance of Erica, my Esthetician. She is there every step of the way to make sure I have the best product available for my skin. Two thumbs up from this girl!
So, how about you? Is your skin care regimen working well? Are you ready for a change? I would highly recommend that you give Beauty By Design and their personalized skin care products a close look, and complete the process to have your own skin evaluation. It is worth the $15, and that is credited back with your first order.
