Skin DNA

12:00 AM

Ok, so before I go on my much needed vacation I wanted to give y’all a little teaser.  I was selected to be part of a group with some bloggers to test out this product by HomeDNA.  It’s so awesome!  Let me talk a little bit about the product itself, then I’ll get into where you can purchase it as well.  Also, I will have an updated post in a few weeks about the product as well.  Keep reading to find out why!
How many of you go shopping for skincare products and are overwhelmed by how many there are and don’t even know where to start, or maybe don’t even know what kind of skin you have?  Did you know that there are so many different things that make up your skin too?  How the heck are you supposed to know what to buy if you don’t even know what you need for your skin?

HomeDNA Skin Care is a DNA test that examines 28 genetic markers in seven categories associated with skin aging.  This at home kit tests for fine lines and wrinkles, collagen quality, skin sensitivity, pigmentation, sun protection, skin elasticity, and skin antioxidants.  Now I went over this in my Instastories a few days ago but I figured for those of you who don’t follow on Instagram (which you totally should!) I could let you know about all of that here on le blog.  Some dermatologists offer similar testing to this kid, but the costs can exceed $300.  The HomeDNA kit retails for $24.99 and then the lab fee of $79.  You can find this kit either at CVS or in the Home Diagnositics section on

HomeDNA is certified by CLIA, CAP, AABB, NATA, and the Ministry of Justice, just visit for more information.
The at home test was extremely easy to use.  The directions are extremely clear but here is what you do.
  1. Register your kit online.  The instructions will be on the pamphlet and your bar code number will be on your envelope.
  2. Fill out your other envelope (it has purple writing on it).
  3. Take 4 swabs on the inside of your mouth and put it in the envelope that has the purple writing on it.
  4. Take your swab envelope and put it in the final envelope.
  5. Mail out your swabs and within about two weeks you’ll receive your results!

I can’t wait for my results so I can finally know what I need and don’t need for my skin!
