A week into the Caldera Lab review and my wife wasn’t rubbing her face on mine every night, but she was commenting regularly on how much she liked the smell. I didn’t miss a single application of Caldera Lab and a result was rewarded with noticeably softer skin. I had some breakouts from my Geologie Skincare review, which Caldera Lab didn’t seem to clear up well. That being said, Caldera is not an acne fighting regimen. In fact, I questioned immensely during the first week whether the heavily oiled product would clog my pores and cause more breakouts.
The Good was still providing excellent results and leaving my face and neck feeling satiny. The potent smell lingered until I washed it away in the morning, which was a downside for me. I wanted the smell to stick around during the day as a mild fragrance to replace the Every Man Jack cologne my wife wasn’t feeling. Here’s a hint guys, when you’re almost 40 and your wife says your cologne smells like an Abercrombie, it’s not a compliment.
The Clean Slate delivered all week. I always felt clean and crisp after using it but wished there was a second bottle so I wouldn’t forget it by the sink when I showered. And speaking of showers, I always felt a twinge of anxiety with the glass in the shower. To date, I have not dropped the bottle – fingers crossed.
The Base Layer fortifies and moisturizers, as the name clearly states. It’s a tad heavy initially, but seems to dry quickly and well. I consistently felt like I was not using enough, although I got the right coverage, but I avoided upping the amount used for fear of clogging my pores.
I wish I felt more results around my eyes and mouth, where I’ve developed crow’s feet and smile lines, but the overall feel of my skin has improved. I can zero in on the fact that The Good did an excellent job of softening my skin, but I am undecided about what results I got from the other two Caldera products.
