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.

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.”

I’ve joined the #DecolletageEntourage with RoC Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream and Lizzie Fortunato

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 RoC Chest, Neck & Face Cream with SPF 30 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.

With a gorgeous chest and neck, you need some beautiful jewelry to highlight the wonderful results, right?? How about a statement necklace from Lizzie Fortunato?

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.

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.

InfiniteAloe® Skin Care review and giveaway

infinite aloeNo fancy title this time because InfiniteAloe® Skin Care isn’t a fancy line, it’s just a simply wonderful line of aloe based skincare that you may never want to stop using.

InfiniteAloe® has three formulas of their cream: Original, Fragrance Free and Anti-Aging. We were sent samples of all three to test and some extras to give to our readers in an anniversary giveaway. I’m sure long time readers know that I chose the Fragrance Free InfiniteAloe® to use. That’s how I roll and I’ve rolled into a cream that I love and am using daily.

InfiniteAloe® Advanced Formula fragrance Free

InfiniteAloe® Advanced Formula fragrance Free

InfiniteAloe Skin Care is loaded with good for your skin ingredients like

* Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice which is an oil soluble extract of the Aloe Vera leaves

* Glycerin which acts as an humectant and emollient

* anti-oxidants like Rose Hips Fruit Oil, CoEnzyme Q10, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Green Tea Leaf Extract, Hyaluronic Acid

* moisturizing ingredients such as Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Calendula Extract, Grape Seed Oil

* anti-inflammatory ingredients: Fennel Fruit Extract, Comfrey Root Extract

Add these up and you have a cream that is moisturizing, emollient, helps with inflammation, and is loaded with antioxidants. But the star of the show is the Organic Aloe Vera which heals and soothes.

InfiniteAloe Advanced Formula Fragrance Free

My experience with this has been mostly on my hands and neck. I’m ashamed to admit that I totally forget to moisturize my neck on a regular basis so when this arrived I made a promise to myself to start taking care of that area. I’ve kept to that promise by using this every night after the rest of my skincare is applied. Even on nights I’m exhausted and can’t wait to get into bed, I take the time to apply this to my neck and then to my hands.

The biggest difference and why I love this cream so much is on my hands. I do use hand creams all the time. But I also wash my hands over and over during the day and night. I practically live in my bathroom some days and my hands showed it. They were rough, chapped, and looked dry as the desert. InfiniteAloe has been the first product that did more than moisturize my hands – it healed them too. It’s not just that the weather is changing though because I’ve been using this since late winter through the winds and freezing rain. After all these weeks I only have one small area on my left forefinger that feels rough. As a leftie, that’s understandable.

This is a great all around moisturizer and it’s just as great on my face as on other parts of my body. I’ve used this as a night cream and there’s no greasy feel to it. It absorbs nicely and my skin looks fresh in the a.m.

InfiniteAloe® also has a Gold Anti-Aging formula that is new and improved and is especially great for facial use. It’s great for under eye use as well as a moisturizer and can be used in the same way that the original creams are used.

I’m super excited that they have sent product for a giveaway. I think this is top-notch and something I want to have on hand. But I’m being generous and not saving it all for myself even though I want to. We will have 3 winners. The first place winner is US or Canada, but the other two prizes will also be international.

As does quality which you’ll find when you try InfiniteAloe Skin Care.
