We, beauty writers, are lucky enough to have access to some of the best skincare experts and products in the business. It’s our job to quiz them on how best to treat our skin and what are the best skincare products on the market, before reporting back to you.
So, of course, whenever I meet a new skincare expert, dermatologist, or facialist — my first question is always: What’s the number one thing we should all be using on our skin?
‘Overdose’ has become one of the best products in the beauty world — and Hollywood celebrities swear by it. It is the holy grail of skincare. Each stylish slim black bottle sold out within weeks when it was launched online a few years back — and it is still going strong today.
With all the recent buzz surrounding ‘Overdose,’ we knew we had to give it a try for ourselves, especially since it’s Baca’s signature product.
J.Nicole uses patent-pending Bio-Hybrid Technology to combine seven separate skincare products into one easy to use formula. It is applying ‘Overdose’ once a day after cleansing, has skin looking clearer, brighter, and more youthful in an instant. Its anti-aging formula works to improve your skin’s overall appearance by hydrating, firming, smoothing, and regenerating as it visibly reduces the signs of aging, blemishes, and uneven skin tone.
Whether you’re looking for a brighter complexion, refreshed pores, or a burst of hydration, ‘Overdose’ comes out on top.
The advice given is not to hide behind your multiple-step skincare routine when you can look good in just two steps! The unique serum formula utilizes the high oleic acid found within specially bred hybrid sunflowers, delivering a super-saturated boost of skincare essentials deep into your skin without any irritation.
At TDS, we’re here to help you navigate through this overwhelming world of — let’s call it — “stuff” or “clutter” of unnecessary products we all have in our medicine cabinets, to help you choose the right serums for your skincare regime.
So, we asked three experts who all have different skin concerns, to put the product to the test and share their first impressions to help better you navigate your selection the next time a restock rolls around — their unfiltered opinions, ahead.
Before you assume your skin is doomed for life, read on. Let’s hear it from the experts!
What our test subjects have to say!
Paralegal — Sabina Cohen
The Background — Sabina says: “I endured embarrassing acne on my chin and forehead that I was only able to curtail in the past few years by adding ‘Overdose’ to my regimen. Now that the problem areas are generally under control, my skin is getting itself together. I still get occasional hormonal breakouts, but that is normal, and since I’m 32, aging is on my mind. ‘Overdose’ has definitely improved my complexion.”
The Overdose Verdict: “The most obvious improvements I’ve noticed have been with my skin healing after breakouts. I’ve seen a marked increase in healing time for inflammation, which is huge for me. I also want to call out my skin’s hydration—even being inside with AC and several plane flights in the past month, my skin hasn’t ever felt dry or tight. I credit that with the quality of ‘Overdose’ and the fact that so many of them include hydrating ingredients.”
Nurse Practitioner — Chantel Morgan
The Background — Chantel says: “One to two times a week, I’ve been using the ‘Overdose,’ and it is gentle and seems like an amped-up lotion. You slather it on after cleansing at night and go to bed. It doesn’t have a strong scent, it rubs in nicely, and it’s just super, super simple. For my skin, the mask helped with resurfacing, but I didn’t see a ton of brightening effects. However, I did notice my skin seemed smoother and more moisturized in the mornings after using it, and any inflammation was generally toned down.”
The ‘Overdose’ Verdict: “I’ve been using ‘Overdose’ as part of my routine for the past four weeks, and honestly, I might not come back from it. The results were apparent within the first few days of using everything—my skin is brighter and more even, and my lines have seemed to have softened. I feel less inclined to wear my regular tinted moisturizer because I’m that satisfied.”
Stay-At-Home Mom / Web Designer — Cemre Gupta
The Background — Cemre says: “Maybe it’s that I’m no longer in my 20s, or maybe it’s just that I no longer live a sweet freelancer’s lifestyle at the beach in Sydney where I can do yoga and swim every day? Either way, my skin feels dreary by the end of the day.”
The ‘Overdose’ Verdict: “I knew my skin was feeling much softer, but I didn’t realize how different it looks until I saw these photos side by side. It just finally feels like my skin is properly hydrated around the clock—I’d gotten used to seeing myself in the mirror toward the end of the day and thinking. Mostly it’s just nice to not feel that same temptation from makeup that promises to be brightening or dewy.”
