Fall Skincare Secret

With winter right around the corner I am already planning a family vacation and skiing trip once the snow starts to fall. For years, I dreaded winter because of the cracked, dry skin that it inevitably caused. Ever since discovering Vaseline Intensive Care Deep Moisture Jelly Cream, now I am confident that my skin will stay moisturized and smooth even after spending hours outside in the cold weather.

When I first received the Elizabeth Arden SUPERSTART Skin Renewal Booster, I was slightly hesitant to add a new product to my skincare routine. The first time I applied it, I put it on right before bed and quickly fell asleep. The serum felt light and nourishing but didn’t really think twice about it. The next morning, however, I could already tell it had helped the overall texture of my skin. It seemed to look more glowing and supple and I couldn’t believe how quickly it had already started working. elizabeth-arden-super-booster-serum After my morning shower, I swiped it on underneath my regular moisturizer and loved how it helped my other products work better while boosting it’s natural defenses, resulting in a smoother complexion.  I usually tend to be very skeptical about skin care product claims but was pleasantly surprised to see how well this worked. I love using it underneath my daily moisturizer and noticed that my fine lines were less noticeable and the texture of my skin was more smooth and resilient. elizabeth-arden-super-boosterIt also seems to balance out my skin too so it looks brighter and feels smoother. It works to apply before bed after washing my face as well since it has a very light and pleasant scent. Not to mention it feels very cool and refreshing on clean skin. The pump is also very convenient so none of the product is wasted and it has a cool lock feature. It has enhanced my other skin products as well which is a definite win in my book. My favorite thing though is that it actually did what it said it would by helping my skin better absorb moisture by boosting my skin’s ability to renew and making it look more supple and radiant. I am definitely hooked.

elizabeth-arden-prevage-post I am quickly developing a love for Elizabeth Arden skincare products and have already tried and fallen head over heels for Prevage® Anti-Aging Daily Serum. Now, it’s safe to say I am excited about Elizabeth Arden’s latest technology with this skin booster from SUPERSTART. I can already tell that this new cutting edge SUPERSTART booster will become a staple in my daily routine. I will be posting a video about my experience with the product in the next few weeks so stay tuned!

With summer in full swing the weather has been hot and dry keeping me on my toes with my skincare routine. Finding the right solution for keeping it hydrated, protecting it against sun damage, and smoothing wrinkles has been at the top of my agenda.

loreal-revitalift-reviewEver since becoming a mom, my skin has been in need of some extra loving care. I suffer from very dry skin and keeping it moisturized and refreshed on a daily basis is a priority. Luckily, the search for a great new skincare line is over. The new L’Oreal RevitaLift products are a great investment that helps preserve beauty by preventing, concealing, reversing, and rejuvenating your skin. This line of products is exactly what I have been looking for.

loreal-revitalift-cream-nightThis creamy facial treatment for lines and wrinkles is a lightweight, silky texture for normal to oily skin that contains those glorious antioxidants while also firming skin at the same time. It makes skin feel smoother and softer, containing ingredients that hold moisture to the skin’s surface, resulting in wrinkles being temporarily plumped. The texture is creamy smooth and works perfectly under my everyday sunscreen. When rubbed into the skin, the product becomes invisible. The skin is left with a soft feel and immediately looks more moisturized. The effect seems to last all day and within two days I noticed that my skin looked more refreshed and moisturized with smaller pores too.

loreal-revitalift-volume-fillerThe RevitaLift Volume Filler is the first daily volumizing skincare that restores skin’s natural fullness for a more youthful look. I noticed the most difference around the eyes including a smoother appearance in the fine lines at the outer corners and underneath them as well.

Everyone’s skin tells a different story and L’Oréal is introducing a new skincare website that can help you find the perfect solution for your own skin concerns. Who wouldn’t want their own customized skincare regiment with added lifestyle tips for their skin? L’Oreal RevitaLift has been a fabulous addition to my skin care routine, giving the most noticeable results. I apply it on a daily basis and my skin looks rejuvenated, brighter, softer and more moisturized. Consider this a new favorite! Read more at www.lorealskinexpert.comloreal-revitalift-cream

Daily Skincare with Elizabeth Arden With each day that passes I get closer and closer to rolling into my 30’s. While I still feel young inside (who doesn’t?), I know that taking better care of my skin is more imperative than before. I firmly feel that developing a great skincare routine to help protect my skin from premature aging is very important. Healthy skin is beautiful skin and while makeup can hide a lot of imperfections, there is really nothing better than a smoother, firmer, more resilient look. Hydrated, moisturized skin is healthy skin and I have found that with Elizabeth Arden’s PREVAGE® Anti-Aging Daily Serum. You may remember my post about this product from earlier this year. I’m still using it, and I still love it!

Elizabeth Arden Prevage Review Elizabeth Arden PREVAGE® Anti-Aging Daily Serum is a great treatment for firming skin while reducing the appearance of lines, wrinkles, sun damage and uneven skin texture. I love it because the texture is smooth while drying quickly without feeling sticky. My absolute favorite feature however, is that I noticed within only a few days how much more luminous and moisturized my skin appeared.

Elizabeth Arden Prevage Review This product gives you skin that looks renewed and feeling silky smooth. It helps protect against environmental aggressors like sun and pollution while repairing and improving its appearance. Keeping a strong anti-aging product in your daily skin care repertoire is so vital and important. Developing a fail-proof routine and excellent skin care habits is vital as you age. I have started to understand the need for quality skin care products and I am so happy I have this as part of my daily routine. I use it on my face and neck and they have never looked so nourished and healthy as they do now!

I’ll be trying out Elizabeth Arden’s SUPERSTART Skin Renewal Booster soon (seen along with PREVAGE® Anti-Aging Daily Serum in the top image on this post!) and I can’t wait to tell you all about. 

Tell me about your skin care regimen for a chance to win a bottle of PREVAGE® Anti-Aging Daily Serum, so you can give this great product a try!
