Kiehl’s is thrilled to launch its 6th Annual Limited Edition Creme de Corps Collection. From this limited-edition collection, 100% of Kiehl’s net profits, up to $100,000, will provide 1,000,000 meals to families this holiday season through Feeding America. Feeding America is the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity, whose mission is to feed America’s hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks. With a presence in all 50 states, Feeding America has a network of 200 member food banks that support 61,000 food assistance agencies.

The Feeding America network secures and distributes 3.2 billion meals annually.

“As a company that was founded in New York City and whose products are made in America, Kiehl’s is thrilled to have built a relationship with the Norman Rockwell Estate. Getting to know Abigail Rockwell, and collaborating on packaging that features her grandfather’s iconic and historic artwork has been an incredible experience.

We believe our iconic Creme de Corps body products and the partnership we have with the Rockwell Estate was the ideal marriage to help Feeding America,” shares Chris Salgardo, President, Kiehl’s USA

Combining natural skincare and science is a beautiful thing!

Finally, I tried the newly introduced REDEFINE ACUTE CARE Skincare for Expression Lines (available starting in 2015). Created by Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields. These tiny patches can be applied anywhere — nasal labial lines, furrowed brows — and are said to “melt into lines and wrinkles for naturally smoother looking skin overnight.” Results are said to, “continue to build over time” and the patches are meant to target “onset smile lines” as well as crow’s feet and lip wrinkles.

Rodan + Fields REVERSE Regimen: Deep Exfoliating Wash, Brightening Toner, Vitamin C/Retinol Complex, Sunscreen

Each ACUTE CARE patch holds more than one hundred microscopic liquid cones that melt into lines and wrinkle for smoother, more youthful-looking skin. Taking a page from the high tech world of electronics, ACUTE CARE was created with, “the precision of semiconductor technology utilizing a robotic computerized liquid handling platform.” Through this process, hyaluronic acid and anti-aging peptides create super-potent liquid micro cones that melt into a wrinkle effortlessly and painlessly overnight for visible results as early as the first application.

The benefits of a one-month course of treatment (applying patches three days a week) can last up to 8 additional weeks when used in conjunction with the REDEFINE Regimen. These patches sounded amazing and I was eager to try them. I was only given 3 sets, but I used them as directed on those pesky nasal labial lines. Even after a single use, I saw a difference — lines were diminished and less apparent. I think that consistent use of this product would yield even better results. I know it’s only October, but these are already on my X-Mas wishlist. Are you listening, Santa?AMP_MD_System_main Review, Photos: Rodan + Fields REDEFINE ACUTE CARE Skincare For Expression Lines, Wrinkles, Night Renewing Serum, Micro-Exfoliating Roller

The REDEFINE AMP MD™ System (60 Day Supply, $200) includes the noninvasive AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller and REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum. According to the literature, the AMP MD System “utilizes micro-exfoliation roller technology for visibly advanced skin-firming benefits.” Rodan & Fields claims that, “smoother, softer skin can be experienced after just one use” and that the system is, “clinically proven to help skin appear firmer and make lines and wrinkles less noticeable for a more luminous and refined appearance.”

Along with the roller (it looks like a razor, but instead of a blade it has a cylindrical rolling device), there is a cleansing vial and purification tablets to insure that the device will remain hygienic and will not introduce any bacteria to the skin. The roller head is made of plastic and is covered with a prickly surface. I tried it on my skin as directed, rolling it over different areas to achieve maximum stimulation. (Caveats: It cannot be used on the eyes, open wounds or irritated, infected or sensitive skin).

I confess I could not use this product more than 2 or 3 times a week. I found the surface of the roller way too abrasive; it felt like I was rolling tiny metal spikes across my face. Afterwards, my skin felt unpleasantly tingly and raw, like I had windburn. I do like mildly abrasive products, like scrubs and exfoliants, but I found the roller a bit too harsh for my skin. This may be an effective treatment for some women, but not for me because I could not use it for long enough to experience any benefits.

In conjunction with the ACUTE CARE patches, I started my REDEFINE skincare routine. The REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum contains a “potent, proprietary blend of peptides and retinol to visibly improve skin texture and firmness and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.” Retinol, adored by dermatologists for decades, is known to improve skin texture and minimize the appearance of pores. Additionally, it is claimed that “patented time-release technology increases skin’s receptivity throughout the night while reducing potential irritancy.”

I broke open a capsule and used on cleansed skin at night. The product absorbed instantly and in the morning, my skin looked terrific — very fresh, soft and dewy. I have been experimenting with serums and in general, I am a fan. But this one is the best by far! I just love it and have already added it to my must-have list.

vbeauté Lip Spread Anti-Age Hydrating Lip Gloss – 5 Of The Best Lip Plumping Shades

I have to admit, I was a bit intimidated going to meet Ms. Julie Macklowe. Finance guru, couture muse, mom and wife… she seems to balance it all with such ease! But she found out there was one thing missing to make her life a bit easier: products that not only traveled well, but were of high-performance and kind to sensitive skin. Julie was on her way to a friend’s wedding in France when all her products were discarded by TSA. She bought what was available, however, it created major issues for her skin. So, she decided to take matters into her own hands and Vbeauté was born!

In this line, each product was created with powerful botanical technology derived from the stem cells of Swiss Alpine Rose. Why is this plant so important you ask? Because they are “longevity botanicals” with anti-aging abilities from adapting over centuries to harsh weather conditions. All of Julie‘s products smooth away past damage while preventing future lines and wrinkles from forming. All of her products are travel-friendly and have TSA approval. Her It Kit Skincare Collection is a must-have for your travels — it has everything your face would need for a few days away.

Erin & Julie checking out the “It Kit”

Her standout product is the Eye Never® Anti Aging Eye Cream. It instantly fills in fine lines while reducing them within 30 days. It includes a Botox-like peptide derived from rice and pomegranate. This particular peptide prevents muscle contractions while nylon 12 instantly fills in crow’s feet; caffeine and raspberry reduce dark circles and puffiness — a true miracle product for the eyes! Please check out Ms. Macklowe and her fabulous line on HSN. I can’t wait to see what else she comes up with. PS, may I add, her packaging is as sleek and elegant as she is!

Strivectin Neck Cream Review, Ingredients: 5 Best Neck Creams For A Firmer Looking Jawline, Décolleté: StriVectin TL Advanced™ Tightening Neck Cream

You pay close attention to your facial skincare routine, right? But are you showing your neck any love? Sure, you might use what’s left of your face cream on your fingers and inadvertently apply it on your neck, but it’s time to show your neckline a little extra TLC. Introducing the NEW! StriVectin TL Advanced™ Tightening Neck Cream. This all-new advanced tightening neck cream offers firming, sculpting and moisture for the neck and profile. As we age, so does the skin on our neck, which tends to droop and take form of the dreaded “gobble neck” our precocious grandmothers have.

StriVectin SD Advanced Intensive Concentrate for Wrinkles & Stretch Marks

To avoid loose turkey necks and crepiness, the reformulated and rich StriVectin TL Advanced™ Tightening Neck Cream is clinically proven to tighten, lift and restore youthful contours for a more sculpted silhouette. Make sure to apply this luxurious cream on your jawline first, then smooth downward for the neck of a twenty-year-old!

“Proven in clinical trials, our new TL Advanced™ Tightening Neck Cream delivers visible results — with more tightening, lifting and firming than ever before. Our exclusive Gravitite-CF Lifting Complex restores lift and improves skin’s resistance to gravity,” said Jue Wong, CEO of StriVectin.

It contains the brand’s proprietary NIA-114® ingredient (delivers time-released energy to maximize skin performance and guard against the damage caused by environmental aggressors) and breakthrough Gravitite-CF Lifting Complex™ (rebuilds the elastin fiber architecture by stimulating elastin synthesis). Along with an impressive list of moisturizing ingredients including: hyaluronic acid, ceramides, algae extract (promotes collagen production), cumingii leaf extract (helps build a tighter appearance), pullulan (provides immediate tightening and lifting benefits to the skin) and sorghum (contains complex sugars that interact with the protein keratin to form a tightening network on the skin for a micro-lifting effect).

The result is tighter, more resilient skin for a youthful-looking profile. With even more effective results than the original, 86% of panelists agreed it’s the best neck cream they’ve ever tried! In 8 weeks, women using StriVectin TL Advanced™ Tightening Neck Cream confirmed:

• Skin feels smoother and hydrated 100%

• Skin feels tighter 96%

• Results keep getting better each week 93%

• Neck & jawline look firmer 86%

• Neck & jawline look lifted 75%

Available beginning September 2014 at department stores and specialty retailers nationwide, and at strivectin.com.

Review, Ingredients: 5 Best Neck Creams For A Firmer Looking Jawline, Décolleté: StriVectin TL Advanced™ Tightening Neck Cream
Dr. Perricone Firming Neck Therapy: Odorless and non-greasy, this neck cream uses potent phospholipids and tocotrienols to address all neck area concerns. This unique formulation helps tone, tighten and form a barrier to increase the appearance of skin’s overall elasticity and thickness while nourishing and hydrating skin.

Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Neck Creme: The look of your neck, jawline and décolleté are redensified with a gravity-defying complex of copper tripeptide, Toniskin™ (yeast extract)), Osilift™ (oat and algae extract blend) and Derm SRC (bamboo-pea extract). Hyaluronic acid locks in moisture and plumps skin providing structure for a sculpted looking neckline. We reviewed it HERE!

Clarins ‘Extra-Firming’ Advanced Neck Cream: Sunflower auxins helps reduce the look of wrinkles on your neckline; green seaweed extract plumps and smooths skin, while oat sugars immediately lift and support skin tissue for a youthful-looking chin, neck and décolleté.

Dr. Brandt D.N.A. (Do Not Age) Firming Neck Cream: Fueled with platinum peptide technology, this neck cream delivers potent active ingredients that directly target problem areas to repair and restore skin’s structure.
