What it is: A dense cream that fights fine lines, sagging skin, and wrinkles with a blend of anti-aging peptides, nourishing botanicals, and other naturally derived ingredients to nurture aging skin.
What it does: Creates a nourished, balanced, and restored complexion.
Who it's for: Recommended for combination, dry, or sensitive skin types, or anyone with wrinkles or aging skin.
What's in it: Powerful peptides with Nori Extract and Sorghum Bicolor Stalk Juice target wrinkles while helping to lift and firm areas of the face, neck, and decolletage. Hyaluronic Acid encourages improved moisture levels on the skin's surface while White Willow Bark keeps the skin looking clear and vibrant.
My experience: Although I am not sweating over wrinkles and other aging woes quite yet, I found that my skin still benefited from the potent ingredients and intense moisture of the cream. On nights where I am feeling particularly dry, I love how soothing it feels as the luxurious texture instantly sinks into my skin. When applied on top of the matching Serum, it creates a hydrating barrier that feels velvet soft and slightly sticky to the touch. After a night's rest of soaking in the blend of firming and moisturizing ingredients, my skin looks so radiant and fresh, almost as if the glow is shining from within.
What it is: A renewal serum that targets very dry and mature skin with a soothing blend of youth-boosting peptides and botanicals.
What it does: Creates a clear, radiant, and youthful complexion.
Who it's for: Recommended for dry and sensitive skin types, or anyone with mature skin.
What's in it: The blend of Peptides and Sorghum Bicolor Stalk Juice work together to help encourage a smoother, more lifted and toned appearance while White Willow Bark keeps dull, lackluster skin at bay. Chamomile Extract, Yarrow Extract, and Aloe Vera are also included to help soothe while Green Tea acts as a powerful antioxidant.
My experience: Using the serum gave that coveted youthful, dewy glow to my skin while it's calming ingredients toned down any redness and smoothed out imperfections. It has a lovely light texture where it absorbs quickly into the skin, but doesn't leave that heavy film like with some facial serums.
I also had my Grammy try out the serum underneath the cream and although she didn't use it long enough to have dramatic results, her skin looked noticeably more radiant and smooth. I would recommend both products to anyone because even if you aren't concerned about aging, the ingredients are still so nourishing and all skin types can benefit from the positive results.
