Algenist Genius Anti-Aging Cream Review

Algenist Genius Anti-Aging Cream Review

Press SampleI’ve been gun-shy about testing skincare products lately.  My poor skin has had enough, and is allergic to so many things these days!  I’m always happy to test-drive products by my new favorite–Algenist–as I’ve never had anything but a great experience with this brand.

New on the Algenist scene is their Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Cream.  Similar to their other anti-aging product, Genius contains alguronic acid, an antiaging incredient derived from microalgae, combined with their new skin-nourishing microalgae oil. [Read more…]

Press SampleIt is a sad state of affairs, but now that I am in my 40s, I am certainly happy to have products like the new NARS Instant Line Pore Perfector at my disposal.  Unlike some pore-minimizing products that come in the form of a thick lotion, the clear crayon format of this new NARS product allows precise application only exactly where needed.  It literally couldn’t be easier to use, simply run the slender tip along the lines you are trying to hide, allow the product to set, and then apply your makeup as usual!

Estee Lauder Resilience Lift

estee lauder resilience lift eye creme

It’s a personal preference, but I like an anti-aging eye cream that causes a slight tingling sensation. In my mind, this feeling means the product is working, removing damaged cells to make way for the new!  Estee Lauder’s Resilience Lift Eye Creme does just that, a mind-comforting “it’s working” tingle, but with no irritation. Trust me, I have super-sensitive skin and this product is gentle!

Another reason to love Lauder’s new lineup?  The “lifting” action is instantaneous!  While wearing it during the day, I feel my skin looks more youthful and radiant than ever!  This result has me positively hooked.
