Here are each of the items that were sent to me from the Dr. Zenovia line. There were seven items in total and I have to say I really like the minimalist packaging. It’s simple and clean and straight to the point!


So what is all this stuff? 


Dr. Zenovia Peptide + Ceramide Repairing Moisturizer

The first item is probably one of the best ones for my skin that I received. This jar contains 1.7 ounces of product and is part of the Essentials line that Dr. Zenovia created. This is a nourishing moisturizer that enhances your skin’s barrier for a firmer and plumper appearance. While this is great for normal, dry and combo skin types – if you have oilier skin this might not be the product for you. However, this is an extremely thick and rich cream for those of you out there that need a heavy moisturizer. You can use this both day and night and some of it’s claims to fame are a peptide complex that increases collagen production, REG ulate 360 complex that helps even out skin that’s been affected by hormonal imbalance with a proprietary blend of resveratrol, vitamin e, green tea, bakuchiol and genestein.


Dr. Zenovia 10% Glycolic Acne Peel Pads

Next up we have the Dr. Zenovia Glycolic Peel Pads. This container includes 60 pads which is enough to last quite a while as this is something that you’d include in your routine each day. These are recommended for nomal, combo and oily skin types. While I use Glycolic Acid I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this for people with overly dry or red skin personally. The formulation of each pad includes 10% glycolic acid, 10% salicylic acid as well as the REG-ulate 360 complex. These work great at exfoliating skin and leaving your skin looking clearer and healthier.


Dr. Zenovia Vitamin C Brightening Toner

Next up is a toner. I find for myself that a simple toner works best for me and so I try not to get too fancy with them if you catch my drift. I will say thought that this toner is fantastic! I’ve been using this a couple weeks now and have to say that it’s doing a great job of making my skin visibly more hydrated and my skin’s texture looks better. This bottle is 4 ounces and includes some big name ingredients like; L-Ascorbic Acid that promotes collagen production, REG-ulate 360 Complex and Micro Nutrient Sea Salt.


Dr. Zenovia 5% Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Spot Treatment

This was the only product in the line that I didn’t have an immediate use for and while I passed it on to my thirteen year old to try out – she unfortunately (or fortunately) didn’t have a need for it yet either. So I can’t really speak to the results but I will say that this bottle is 0.5 ounces and includes a gel product that includes ingredients like 5% Benzoyl Peroxide, REG-ulate 360 complex and medical grade aloe vera.


Dr. Zenovia Advanced Retinol Night Repair Treatment

Next up is a sample sized version of the Dr. Zenovia Advanced Retinol Night Repair Cream – this typically comes in a 1.5 ounce bottle. I like an overnight retinol cream and this is no different. While I wasn’t able to use this over the course of a few weeks to get a good feel for it the couple days I was able to use it were very nice and I did see some changes in my skin. This is for normal to oily skin types and comes in the form of a lightweight serum, it really does feel quite breathable. This product includes All Trans Retinol Technology, REG-ulate 360 Complex and a curated antioxidant blend that nourishes and calms the skin. Because this is a Retinol product it should only be used at night.




Dr. Zenovia Aloe Vera Blemish Soothing Moisturizer

Second to last in the range that I received from Dr. Zenovia is the Aloe Vera Blemish Soothing Moisturizer. I have to be honest and say that this product is the one that caught my eye the most. This 1.5 ounce bottle includes a moisturizer that works to hydrate acne prone skin, reduces redness and gives you more even tone and texture. Whereas the peptide and ceramide moisturizer is a great one for bedtime routines I’d suggest this one for a day cream – it’s lightweight and breathable and it’s great for ALL skin types! The ingredients included in this product are Medical Grade Aloe Vera, REG-ulate 360 Complex and Medical Grade Squalene to smooth and soothe skin.


Dr. Zenovia Bakuchiol Hydrating Cleanser

The final item in the assortment that I received is a cleanser, making this a very well rounded mix of items if you ask me! The Bakuchiol Cleanser comes in a 4 ounce bottle and is a clinical grade, pH balancing cleanser that hydrates while it cleanses. I really like this for everyday use and love that it pumps out rather than is squeezed out. This product includes ingredients like; bakuchiol which is an alternative to retinol, REG-ulate 360 Complex as well as a curated antioxidant blend.


All in all I’d recommend this line to skincare enthusiasts across the board especially if you have specific, hormonally driven issues and concerns.
