Wrinkle Reducing Products

Favorite wrinkle reducing products. #antiaging #beauty #skincare via @agirlsgottaspa

When we’re young, we take our flawless skin for granted, never considering that what we do early on will affect us when we’re older. We try to rush things, like wearing makeup (and always forgetting to take it off), skip things like sunscreen and make poor choices like smoking. (I know as I write this I’m not just speaking for myself.) As much as we backpeddle once we finally realize our skin sins, it’s too late and we need wrinkle reducing skin care to become part of our daily routine.

Here’s a few I’ve been using that you might want to check out: Read more

Hydroxatone Hydrolyze Intensive Under Eye Treatment

You’ve probably seen the Hydroxatone brand on TV Infomercials.  I have and have always been curious about it so when I was given the opportunity to try one of the products I was delighted.  Hydrolyze Intensive Under Eye Treatment is a newer product in the line that is supposed to address “serious dark circles, lines, wrinkles and puffiness.”  This hydrating treatment features a unique blend of ingredients that stimulate micro-circulation and help brighten while plant extracts help maintain capillary strength and micro-circulation to diminish dark circles.  Read more

Freeze 24/7 ArcticLift Firming Neck Cream Review



I’ve had good experiences with Freeze 24-7 products in the past (Freeze & Go), so when I heard about their new ArcticLift Firming Neck Cream, I knew I had to try it. Not only have I been dealing with my facial skin sagging and new wrinkles emerging every day (at least it seems that way), my neck has begun to resemble that of a rooster.

ArcticLift targets slacking skin and firms, tightens and lifts it. Not only was I told that I would see immediate visible results, but that it has a cumulative effect with results continuing to improve over time. I was slightly skeptical because I have yet to use a firming neck cream that actually works. But pictures don’t lie… Read more

StriVectin-SD Power Serum for Wrinkles Launches on QVC

The other day my Facebook status said, “The best things in life are…anti-wrinkle creams.” As you get older and those fine lines and creases begin to emerge, you know this to be true. While I realize that all serums, lotions and creams that promote minimizing the appearance of wrinkles are not permanent solutions, plastic surgery is not in my vocabulary…at least not for my face. My stomach, after having four kids, is another story.

On July 30th (Monday), StriVectin is pairing their StriVectin-SD Intensive Concentrate Face Cream with their new StriVectin-SD Power Serum for Wrinkles for only $99 for the two on QVC. Typically the Serum alone is $99, so if you purchase this set, you’d basically be getting the Face Cream for free. I recently received the Power Serum for Wrinkles and will be posting a review after a few weeks of testing it out.  Read more
