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.

89% of women said their skin instantly looked naturally radiant and glowing. It works wonderfully over the serum and creme, blending well to make your skin look flawless. It doesn’t have a lot of coverage, but the effect is to focus on creating an even base rather than scrutinizing over individual areas. It dries somewhat semi-matte, but your skin will still feel hydrated. Even though I am fair, the Medium works well to brighten up my complexion.

Face FAll Masks 2014 Review, Ingredients: 5 Best Hydrating And Exfoliating Face Masks For Fall, Winter 2014 - bliss, Peter Thomas Roth, Sephora, Skin Inc.

When it comes to skincare in the fall, we’re looking for hydrating and replenishing facial masks. Summer was all about zapping away those zits and keeping our oily skin under control, but we’re ready to relax with nourishing masks that won’t strip our skin of essential oils. If you’re ready to swap your acne-fighting mask for a more fall-ready one, read on to find out about our favorite face masks to use from now until the snow hits — which is when we’ll be calling in the big guns, like buckets of essential oils.

Face Masks Opened Review, Ingredients: 5 Best Hydrating And Exfoliating Face Masks For Fall, Winter 2014 - bliss, Peter Thomas Roth, Sephora, Skin Inc.

Sephora Collection Honey Mask — Nourishing & Balancing & Rose Mask — Ultra Moisturizing & Brightening: These one-use natural fiber masks contain honey and rose extract to relieve dry skin. The mask perfectly hugs facial contours while the active ingredients penetrate, soothe and balance skin. The Rose Mask plumps up skin with water for a fresh appearance; the Honey Mask works well on sensitive skin, leaving behind a velvety-soft finish.

Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask: This 3-in-1 resurfacer treatment smells just like a pumpkin muffin! But don’t let its sweet scent fool you. It exfoliates with pumpkin enzyme, peels with alpha hydroxy acid and polishes skin with aluminum oxide. Ideal for all skin types, you’ll experience some tingling when you leave it on for 3-7 minutes (depending on how sensitive your skin is), but you’ll be amazed at how smooth your skin will feel.

Skin Inc Pure Deepsea Hydrating Mask: This clear gel mask is like putting on your favorite satin slippers. Rinse it off or leave it on overnight, either way you’ll end up with hydrated, clarified and brighter-looking skin. The transparent mask contains Okinawa deepsea water, soya bean extract and hyaluronic acid with 0% parabens or fragrance.

Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask: You might already use this mask for your summertime burns, but cucumber is great to use all year round! This detoxifying hydrator refreshes, calms and helps soothe dry skin with papaya, chamomile, pineapple, sugar maple, orange, aloe and more! Use it after extractions, facials or irritating peels or leave it on overnight on top of your last skincare step as an intense hydrating treatment.

bliss multi-‘face’-eted All-In-One Anti-Aging Clay Mask: Soon to be your new favorite clay mask, 10% glycolic, kojic acid, kaolin, pumice, jojoba oil, lemon and carbon reduce visible fine lines/wrinkles, fade dark spots, unclog pores, brighten skin, smooth rough texture AND deeply moisturize for skin that looks too good to be covered up with foundation. Despite all these skin-resurfacing ingredients, you won’t expect one sign of redness from this powerful yet gentle face mask.
