Wouldn’t it be great if we could just steam away our wrinkles like a steamer? Just roll out of bed, grab our handy little iron, and steam those fine lines away? Maybe someday in the Jane Jetson future.In the meantime, I’m happy that I’m a RoC Ambassador because I get to sample some terrific products that help visibly reduce deep wrinkles and help with fine lines. I’ve got both so I need to reduce them and keep any new ones from forming.  

The three main areas of concern for me are my eyes, my neck, and my face – especially around my mouth area. RoC has me covered in all areas!

RoC Deep Wrinkle Serum

RoC Deep Wrinkle Serum

With RoC Retinol Correction Deep Wrinkle Serum ($23) the longer you use it, the happier you will be with the results. The silky serum feels great on immediately and plumps up skin right away and with consistent use your skin becomes extremely happy and wrinkles truly do dramatically improve. Ingredients include Roc Retinol along with magnesium, zinc and copper to bring renew skin and to help bring newer skin to the surface.

  • This anti-aging formula is clinically proven to help visibly reduce both fine lines and deep wrinkles
  • After four weeks, skin appears more radiant, fine lines are smoothed and skin firmness is improved
  • After eight weeks, crow’s feet are visibly reduced and discoloration is diminished
  • After twelve weeks, deep wrinkles are visibly reduced
  • The formula glides on easily and absorbs quickly leaving your skin feeling smooth and velvety and is ideal for use under makeup

    RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Eye Cream

    RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Eye Cream

RoC® Retinol Correxion® Eye Cream ($23) is a great eye cream that tackles puffiness and dark circles, two problems that only seem to get worse for me the older I get. Regular use of this eye cream truly reduces the look of wrinkles and crow’s-feet. Another plus – this has no fragrance.  RoC® Retinol Correxion® Eye Cream is just one of the great eye creams that RoC® produces, but it’s my favorite and the one I choose over and over.

RoC Chest, Neck & Face Cream with SPF 30

RoC Chest, Neck & Face Cream with SPF 30

I know, I know, I am always on my soap box about paying extra attention to the decolletage. But that is the FIRST place that aging skin shows up! We take great care of our faces, but often forget our necks – that means no sunscreen, no treatment serums, no collagen support. The RoC Chest, Neck & Face Cream with SPF 30 ($28) is fabulous in several ways. It really is everything you need from your chest on up to your forehead. I see immediate results in terms of dryness and skin tone and after four weeks there is a definite improvement in sagging and the appearance of wrinkles. Ingredients include the famous RoC Hexinol Technology as well as tons of vitamin E, which specifically targets the 5 signs of aging:  discoloration, sagging, dryness, dull skin tone and wrinkles. Plus, it has an SPF of 30 so it protects against the harmful rays of the sun.  The cream itself is absolutely beautiful – thick and creamy, yet it absorbs quickly and leaves skin soft and satiny. The rich cream and the elegant formula makes the Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream a huge winner.

We are still a long way off from any miracle product like a Jane Jetson mask or a steam iron that takes wrinkles immediately away, but for great skin care that takes of you today and for the long haul I love RoC Skin Care.  – Lisa

Super charged skin care with VENeffect!

VenEffect

One of the best things about beauty blogging is, of course, finding really terrific new lines that truly work. One such line is VENeffect. Marcia and I both are very impressed with the products we’ve tested – Marcia reviewed several things a few weeks ago, be sure to take another look at her review HERE. Just to remind you, here are a few things you should know about VENeffect:

  • The line was created by sisters (Dr. Rebecca Booth and Cecil Booth) who are both in the wellness business.
  • They discovered that women are affected by hormonal aging yet there was little in the way of solutions for it.
  • The Booth sisters created VENeffect as their breakthrough anti-aging solution to reverse the signs of hormonal aging. Their goal – to restore skin to peak hormonal vitality.
  • VENeffect is the “only anti-aging skin care line formulated with a unique and powerful blend of 100% natural phytoestrogens to enhance collagen and improve elasticity in skin.”
  • VENeffect is hypoallergenic, synthetic fragrance free, gluten-free, and paraben free. Made in the USA.

Marcia and I both tried the same VENeffect cleanser but we tried two other different products to give you a wide range of items from this really cool line.  Here’s what I found in my adventures with the cleanser, serum, and neck cream.

VenEffect Pore Minimizing Cleanser

VENeffect Pore Minimizing Cleanser

VenEffect Pore Minimizing Cleanser

VENeffect Pore Minimizing Cleanser

VENeffect Pore Minimizing Cleanser ($60) is a huge 5.1 fl. oz tube of cleanser that not only cleanses away the day, it also really takes care of your skin. It reverses the signs of aging, stimulates collagen and hyaluronic acid, and it makes skin glow and look healthy.

  • Willow bark helps minimize the appearance of pores, removes excess sebum, and fights shine
  • Phytoestrogens, including soy and pomegranate, enhance luminosity
  • Pomegranate enzymes remove dead skin cells, revealing healthy skin
  • Cucumber and grapefruit extracts refresh and renew

This is an interesting cleanser that is clear and slippery. It doesn’t foam up at all, which takes some getting used to. Even though it’s not ‘soapy’, it still works fine with my Luna. I do use a separate makeup remover for my eye makeup because this doesn’t take mascara off well – it’s more of a skin treatment cleanser. Since I always double cleanse (using a makeup remover first to make sure my liquid cleanser really penetrates) I love the skin treatment qualities that the VENeffect Pore Minimizing Cleanser provides, and I think this is an excellent option particularly for those with oily skin or with an oily t-zone.

VenEffect Firming Phyto-Lift Serum

VENeffect Firming Phyto-Lift Serum

VenEffect Firming Phyto-Lift Serum

VENeffect Firming Phyto-Lift Serum

VENeffect Firming Phyto-Lift Serum ($195) firms skin and brightens up skin tone.

  • Instantly lift and firm face, neck and décolletage
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Brighten and even skin tone
  • Increase elasticity
  • Inspire collagen resulting in a youthful glow

It has an elegant formula with an interesting ingredient – 100% natural oat extract. Hmmm….this was new to me. I did some research, and this is one of the best skin soothing ingredients there is. It’s also known as Avena sativa, for my fellow skin care geeks. The combo of the 100% natural oat extract with the phytoestrogen technology means tight, lifted, brightened skin that looks glowy and youthful. Oh, and no silicones, alcohol, or fragrance.

VenEffect Firming Neck and Decollete Creme

VenEffect Firming Neck and Decollete Creme

VenEffect Firming Neck and Decollete Creme

VENeffect Firming Neck and Decollete Creme

VENeffect Firming Neck and Décolleté Creme ($155)  I have a bit of an addiction to neck and décolleté creme. It could be worse, right? Hey, if I am going to be addicted to something, this might be expensive but at least it’s not going to kill me. Neck and décolleté creme always feels so luxurious to me, like I am totally spoiling myself. I just love it. And this one is really special – it’s so thick and creamy, so fabulously hydrating…I want to take a spoon and just eat it. Ok, so that might kill me. Never mind.

  • Diminishes and helps prevent the appearance of deep wrinkles
  • Firms and smooths the delicate skin of the neck and chest area
  • Increases elasticity
  • Brightens and evens skin tone
  • Inspires collagen resulting in a youthful glow

I love that this neck cream is fragrance-free and it really reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I can feel free to wear any perfume that I want without worrying about it competing with my skin care and I know that the area that gets the most sun – my neck and chest – is also getting deep treatment all day long. Wonderful!

I am beyond impressed with VENeffect and I think you will be too. I hope you will try this excellent line developed by sisters who know just what women need.  You can find VENeffect at specialty beauty stores and online at VENeffect.com and Dermstore.com.  – Lisa

Ooooh so good!! Vie Collection Chrono Eyes and Mesopeptide Decollete Replenishing Cream

Vie CollectionI am a huge fan of Phytomer and use their skin care products all the time. I didn’t even realize that Phytomer had a special line called the Vie Collection…but what a wonderful opportunity to try some new skin care from a line I already know is excellent! I typically wait to use a product until after I have my photos, but something about these two items made me want to dig in immediately. Let me tell you, I wasn’t disappointed. You are going to love the Chrono Eyes and the Mesopeptide Decollete Replenishing Cream.                                                                  samples
Vie Collection Chrono EyesVie Collection Chrono Eyes swatchCHRONO EYES ($101) is a wonderful eye cream with an elegant formula that drew me in right away. It gives immediate gratification thanks to a pearlescent finish that instantly brightens the eye area. This isn’t just a one night stand eye cream though. Key ingredients include Encapsulated High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid, Botox-like Peptide, Phytosterols + Fatty Acids, Vitamin C + Vitamin B3. This fabulous cocktail smooths wrinkles, calms puffiness, lightens dark circles, and makes skin look younger. It’s fragrance free and the best news of all – the packaging is an airless pump which means the ingredients won’t lose their efficacy. It’s truly a fabulous eye cream that is well worth the price tag.Vie Collection DecolleteVie Collection Decollete swatch
As much as I love this eye cream, I think I love the Vie Collection Mesopeptide Decollete Replenishing Cream ($120) even more! The first time I smoothed this on my neck I swear the world went into slow motion and I could hear the angels sing. I know, I know, at that price it should turn water into wine, but boy…if you can afford it, this is an amazing luxurious experience.
I cannot believe how soft and smooth my neck and decollete feel after applying this – and not just right after, but all day long. The lotion is creamy yet sort of gel-like at the same time. Like the Chrono Eyes, it has a pearlescent finish which reflect light and makes skin immediately look younger. The ingredients include Peptides, Encapsulated High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid, Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid, and Vitamin C. Vie Collection Mesopeptide Decollete Replenishing Cream will make your neck and chest look and feel beautiful and younger.
I can’t recommend the Vie Collection Chrono Eyes and Mesopeptide Decollete Replenishing Cream highly enough!! I am so excited about both products and I know you will be too.  – Lisa

RoC® Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream makes a difference (giveaway alert)

RoC Multi-Correxion 5-in-1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream

RoC Multi-Correxion 5-in-1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream

A new year means a new beginning and that new beginning should start with your neck. Not enough of us are as careful about protecting our neck and chest from the signs of aging and the damage of the sun. Since it’s the start of January it’s the perfect time to make a change. As a RoC® Ambassador I’m lucky enough to be sent their products to test and one that has helped me is the RoC® Multi-Correxion 5-in-1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream.

Even though I’ve never been a sun worshipper that doesn’t mean that my neck is any less susceptible to the problems that it can cause. One of the places that can give away your age once you get into middle age is your neck. By protecting your neck with this RoC® Neck Cream you are giving yourself a chance to save yourself some aging woes.

RoC® Multi-Correxion 5-in-1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream

Why do you want to use RoC® Multi-Correxion 5-in-1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream? Well for one it’s an anti-aging cream that helps hydrate your chest and neck. Even if you have oily or combination skin you’ll find that your neck is drier and needs extra protection.

RoC® Multi-Correxion 5-in-1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream

In the winter I believe we aren’t quite as diligent about sunscreen protection if we live in the cold states. It’s easy to just bring the SPF you are using down your neck to finish up what’s on your hand but that’s really not enough. We need to be dedicated to talking care of our neck and chest all year long.

“The cream is specially formulated to moisturize the chest and neck area with exclusive HEXINOL Technology and Vitamin E. Multi-action HEXINOL® Technology was developed to target the visible signs of aging from a different path than other anti-aging ingredients. It can give visible improvement in as little as 4 weeks by restoring firmness, smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving the look of discoloration and overall radiance of skin, and hydrating dry skin.”

Three must-have products to exfoliate and moisturize from Phytomer

Three must-haves from Phytomer

Three must-haves from Phytomer

We all want radiant, glowy skin and in order to get it there are two basic steps:

  1.  Exfoliate!
  2. Moisturize!

Today I have three must-have products that exfoliate and moisturize and are perfect for those with very sensitive skin. They come from Phytomer, a fantastic high end line that is a favorite of mine. The products truly deliver, all while also making me feel spoiled and pampered. They are on the spendy side, but they are all worth every penny.                                                            samples

Phytomer Purifying Gommage Exfoliant

  1.  Purifying Gommage Exfoliant  ($41.50)  ‘Gommage’ means ‘eraser’ in French, and this awesome exfoliant erases dead skin and anything that might be blogging your pores and preventing your skin care from operating at full force. The tiny particles that scrub away the bad stuff include micro algae and kaolin that attach to dead skin so it can be washed away. It’s applied to clean, dry skin in a thin layer. After about five minutes, rub it in circular motions, moving those particles around and lifting off the dead skin. It sort of rolls up into little balls that fall into the sink. Once most of the exfoliator is gone, use your regular cleanser or even just warm water to wash off.  Do this a few times a week and you will be astounded at how great skin looks and feels. This really is an amazing decongestant for skin and is super gentle. Everyone raves about it for a reason – it’s incredible.  Phytomer Youth Contour Smoothing Eye and Lip Cream
  2. Youth Contour Smoothing Eye and Lip Cream ($81.50) I adore multi-tasking products, and this beautiful light cream works wonders on the delicate skin under eyes and around lips. It addresses three major skin issues: wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles. It has really cool ingredients that are a superhero trio for the eyes and lips. Dilsea Carnosa red algae extract actually reinforces the skin’s support tissue from within, reducing the depth of wrinkles and fine lines. Chlorella Vulgaris green algae extract soothes skin and reduces puffiness, and Delesseria Sanguinea red algae extract increases circulation and reduces dark circles.Phytomer Decollete Parfait Neck and Decollete Renewing Care
  3. Decollete Parfait ($95.50)  The best skin care advice ever: don’t forget your neck!! I love, love, love the Phytomer Decollete Parfait. This beautiful soft cream sort of ‘irons out’ skin on the neck and chest, immediately making it smoother and softer. It has a bit of illumination in it, which evens out tone and gives a beautiful appearance. Over time, the Brightening Marine Complex lightens dark spots so this is immediate gratification with long term results.

I can’t recommend these three favorites from Phytomer highly enough. If you want to get a beautiful glow, try these for perfect exfoliation and moisturization. You won’t be disappointed.  – Lisa

Why pay extra attention to your decolletage? Because ladies that is the FIRST place that aging skin shows up — think about it. We take great care of our faces, but often forget our necks – that means no sunscreen, no treatment serums, no collagen support. That also means wrinkles and sagging. We need to take care of our necks, then wear fabulous jewelry to show them off!!

As a RoC Ambassador I get treated to some of their fabulous products, including their Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream with SPF 30 ($28). In addition to this beautiful cream that is a total treat for my neck, they recently sent me a STUNNING Lizzie Fortunato necklace to show off my results.  #gotitfree

The year is almost over, and what better way to send it off than with a giveaway??  I first discovered the Strivectin TL Advanced™ Tightening Neck Cream ($95) about a year ago. I went through an entire jar, slathering it on every morning and every night and I loved the results. This is a terrific product and I’m thrilled we are able to give one to a lucky reader.

Strivectin TL Advanced™ Tightening Neck Cream – super thick and creamy

Let’s face it, the first place that really shows your age is the neck and decolletage. However, most of us forget to take care of this delicate skin that is constantly exposed to the sun. If it’s not kept moisturized the skin becomes wrinkled and crepey, looking old way before it should.  The Strivectin TL Advanced™ Tightening Neck Cream uses some pretty fancy technology called Gravitite-CF Lifting Complex™ and patented NIA-114 technology to rebuild elastin fibers, reduce sagging, and moisturize the skin. As soon as it’s applied, skin looks and feels tighter, and the results just get better over time.

Based on consumer evaluation at 12 weeks:

    • 96% felt tighter skin
    • 96% saw improved firmness
    • 89% saw significant lift

I love the results Strivectin TL Advanced™ Tightening Neck Cream gives me and I know you are going to love it too! Enter today to win one of our last giveaways for 2015.
