Why does VenEffect Anti-Aging Lip Treatment make us so happy?

We are totally enamored with VenEffect Anti-Aging Lip Treatment. VenEffect is a small line that was created by two sisters, Dr. Rebecca Booth and her sister Cecil Booth. Reading their resumes makes us want to rush and meet them. We could go on for pages about these two but the important thing to know is that Dr. Rebecca Booth is a gynecologist and a hormonal wellness expert while Cecil Booth has worked in the beauty industry for over 20 years launching products with innovative ingredients. The two of them together combined their expertise to come out with a skin care line that addresses the signs of hormonal aging. Not only do they want to provide solutions to our issues but they want to educate women about their hormonal changes. VenEffect sources its anti-aging power from 100% natural plant-based phytoestrogens to reveal the glow of healthy skin.

VenEffect is carried at Neiman Marcus and VENeffect.com. On NeimanMarcus.com you can see the sisters talking about their line. It only has 6 products but if they are anything like their Anti-Aging Lip Treatment then we want them all! If you are curious about this amazing line then reading the FAQ on their website will answer a lot of questions for you.

Marcia’s side:

If you are a reader of Beauty Info Zone then you know that I am a big fan of giveaways. I list as many as I can find for you and enter quite a few. A few months ago I was lucky enough to win this from BelleBelle Beauty. To say I was thrilled would be a big understatement. I wanted to win this more than any other giveaway I’ve entered. (Later we were thrilled when VenEffect offered another so we could do a side by side review.) One of my New Year’s Resolutions on Makeup Wars was to take better care of my lips. I think I’ve done a good job of it but I knew this was the true answer and I was right.

VenEffect Anti-Aging Lip Treatment is the first product I’ve used for my lips that I never want to be without. I’ve used a lot that I liked but this is truly the first that I’ve loved. Even when I promise I’m going to do a better job at night with certain items I don’t use them all 7 days. With this treatment though I will actually get my butt out of bed and apply it if I forget. It’s the last thing I do before bed. During the day when I walk into that bathroom I’m anxious to apply it. I love the feel of this and I even love the slight sweet taste of this.

VenEffect Anti-Aging Lip Treatment

Anti-Aging Lip Treatment’s job is to reduce the appearance of fine lines around our lips. I slather this on my lips and all around them. It is totally hydrating and moisturizing. I’ve been using it for 4 months and noticed a difference in the winter in the lack of chapped lips. While it plumps my lips it’s not like the lip products sold that sting my lips and give me temporary plumping. This is working to make my lips look softer and more natural. I’m never going to have Angelina Jolie lips but I can have the lips I had about 10 years ago if I continue using this natural product. Whether I use this as a lipstick primer or as a lip treatment at night it receives a huge rave from me.

Inside VenEffect Anti-Aging Lip Treatment

Here’s what we can learn from VenEffect about this:

Preserves and restores collagen with exclusive plant-based phytoestrogen to:

  • Instantly hydrate and smooth delicate lip area skin.
  • Minimize vertical lines around lips caused by hormonal aging.
  • Gently plump and enhance the rosy glow of hormonal vitality.

VENeffect products are hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and paraben free.

Lisa’s Side:

I couldn’t agree with Marcia more. This stuff is the bomb!  very morning and every night I slather this on my lips and all around them. I have hereditary vertical lines, especially on my upper lip, and this has made such a difference in their appearance. Those lines are so much less noticeable now, I am beyond thrilled.

VenEffect – creamy goodness for your lips

I actually feel bad every time I use this though, because I dread the day I run out of it. I love it so much, sometimes I even put it on in the middle of the day just because it makes my lips look and feel so good. I am addicted. It’s the best lip product I have used in a very long time.

Lisa from Beauty Info Zone visits her fantasy Desert Island

My fellow Beauty Spotlight bloggers have banished me to a desert island, and I can only bring 12 products (with sunscreen and lip balm already generously provided).  Ok, it’s my fantasy so I am going to let you know up front I am NOT going alone. Nope, on my trip to a deserted island I am accompanied by JOE.

One sniff of Lavanila Vanilla Coconut and I am here.  With Joe.

Here’s my deserted island. And here is Joe.

Joe and I are going to be spending a LOT of time together so I kept that in mind when selecting my twelve items.  Here’s what I am packing for my romantic retreat… I mean desert island experience.

1. Beautisol Dark Self Tanner ($39):  I’m not going to tan in the sun, but a tan makes you look thinner, healthier, and it covers so many flaws!!  Before hanging out with Joe, I am first going to slather myself from head to toe with self tanner. Beautisol Dark Self Tanner is my go-to for a full body tan.

2. MAC Blot Powder ($24):  I live in fear of walking around with a shiny nose so I always have this with me.  It’s the perfect pressed powder.

3. It Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Concealer  ($24):  It’s full coverage, it’s waterproof, and it covers my dark undereye circles beautifully.  Joe and I may be staying up REALLY late at night, but it won’t show under my eyes!

4. MAC Paint Pot in Painterly ($18.50):  I am quite sure I’m not going to be doing full eye makeup on a desert island, but MAC’s Paint Pot in Painterly is my go-to for a clean, finished eye look in seconds.  This creamy eyeshadow dries down quickly and stays all day, and it never creases or cakes on me.

5. Paula’s Choice Gentle Touch Makeup Remover ($12.95):  I need a cleanser, cause there is no way I am going to get stuck with a blemish on this trip! This is the very best makeup remover I have ever found. It’s super gentle so it doesn’t irritate the eyes, but at the same time it removes even the most stubborn makeup. Another plus – it has anti-irritants that help reduce puffiness.

6. VENNeffect Anti-Aging Lip Treatment ($85):  I have issues with hereditary vertical wrinkle lines around my lips – and this stuff truly reduces their appearance. I’m not going anywhere without it.

7. Besame Sweetheart Balm in Cherry ($18):  I can’t believe I am picking a lip gloss that’s in a pot – sticking sandy fingers into lip gloss doesn’t sound good at all. But I just adore the unbelievable slip and texture of this gloss and the color is simply perfect with tanned skin.

8. Sugar Works Body Gloss in Tybee Island Beach Cottage ($12.95):  I love their body oil, it leaves skin super moist but not wet, and the scent really becomes one with your body so it seems like you just naturally smell that way. This scent is described as “Sun, the ocean, warm sand, beach grass, wild beach flowers, a touch of suntan oil.” For sure Joe won’t be able to keep his hands off me.

9. Beach Day Spray by Unite ($29.95):  This is the best spray for that wavy, beachy look because it smells amazing and doesn’t leave your air-dried hair crunchy.

10. Whatever Lola Wants from the Lippmann Collection ($17):  This is my most favorite summer nail color of all time. It’s a beautiful shimmery lilac/lavender/pink and it looks especially amazing in the sun. This color makes me feel cute and sexy all at the same time.

11.  Body Glide from Athleta ($8):  This is a terrific way to prevent blisters on your feet and chafing around sports bras, plus it does extra duty moisturizing dry, cracked skin. You can insert your own joke about how with Body Glide I won’t have to worry about chafed thighs.

12.  My Poipu hat from Athleta:  I LOVE this sun hat. It has a nice foldable brim that is perfect for shading your eyes, but isn’t so big you bump into things as you walk. Squish it into your beach bag, and it pops right back into shape when you put it on.  It’s on sale now too for only $29.99 – sheesh, I paid $54 for mine!! You can find the hat HERE.

There’s my list! I’d invite you along, but Joe and I are in some serious need of ‘alone time’.  Aloha!  – Lisa

What do you say, Joe...are you ready to go to that deserted island with me??
