My Review of Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester Eye Serum

Published on by

Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester Eye SerumAre you looking like you just came from an all-night party?  Puffy eyes with some dark circles and fine lines showing the cracks in your make-up?  Well, brighten up!  Dr. Perricone has made a skin-usable Vitamin C Ester Eye Serum that delivers!  The formulation doesn’t dissipate once it’s applied to the skin. Just smooth this silky liquid over the eye area for firmer, brighter, younger-looking eyes.

Oh, and BONUS, this serum is also amazing on the fine lines around your mouth. I noticed INSTANT, yes I said instant, improvement when I just put a drop of this on those pesky fine lines starting to creep in on my upper lip.  Lines eradicated (happy dance).   Since I saw that, I decided to put it on my whole mouth.  My lips became plumper, more defined and softer.  I almost love it more as a lip treatment than for the eyes. But it’s great for both.

Yet another benefit, it pairs really well with the Perricone MD High Potency Eye Lift.  If you need an eye lift and were going to buy just that product by itself, it will run you $98.00. However, you can get both full- size products in the Perricone MD Eye Lift Synergy Kit for the same price! Score!


Discover Erno Laszlo Phormula 3-9

Published on by

PROTECTION FROM THE EXTREME

Our modern lifestyle constantly exposes the skin to environmental stressors such as:  UV radiation, pollution and other toxins. Perfected over decades of research and development, this highly advanced formula restores skin that is stressed, dulled, and dried by lifestyle and environmental factors. Phormula 3-9 is a direct reflection of the deep, unabiding belief that we can elicit the skin’s natural beauty response when we properly honor the miracle that it is. By sealing technologically advanced ingredients within a ‘health dome’ 3-9 acts as a second skin and provides intense oxygenation and thorough re-hydration.

THE UNTOLD STORY OF PHORMULA 3-9

It is Erno Laszlo’s masterpiece, one of the original formulas developed by Dr. Laszlo and relentlessly improved over time. A total of eight iterations were created between 1917 and 1973 specifically for the following muses: Princess Stephanie, Frida Gombaszögi (early Hungarian actress), Greta Garbo, Lillian Gish, The Duchess of Windsor, Hubert De Givenchy, Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe respectively (a version of the Phormula was created for Marilyn to treat her post-surgical abdominal scar tissue).

The current and ninth iteration was discovered inadvertently in 2001 by a researcher sorting through the doctor’s personal archives. Nearly 30 years had passed since Dr. Laszlo penned the original formulation, and it was anticipated that it might require updating. What was discovered, however, was that the transcript Dr. Laszlo left behind was already a high-tech hybrid, and only small alterations were made in the formula to capitalize on some of the newest breakthroughs in anti-aging actives.

KEY INGREDIENTS

The exact formula for 3-9 is a closely guarded secret. It contains a blend of rich, powerful and time honored ingredients, such as raspberry stem cells- which repair and increase the antioxidant function in human DNA and extend cell longevity. A few of the key plant derived oils  include Tacamahca Seed Oil, a healing oil from sacred trees in the South Pacific; Chaulmoogra Oil, a natural antibacterial agent derived from a tree in East India and Aleurites Fordi Oil, an extracted oil that’s derived from a genus that includes mustard, cabbage and broccoli.

THE PHORMULA 3-9 PRODUCT RANGE

Phormula 3-9 Repair Balm – 1.7oz – The original: designed to significantly elevate the state of the complexion, this rich, soothing formula rapidly smoothes skin, reverses dehydration and improves oxygenation.

Phormula 3-9 Repair Cream – 1.7oz – New: nutritional supplement offering superior hydration along with strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties for renewed skin cell energy and a youthful appearance.

Phormula 3-9 Repair Serum – 1oz – New: a daily radiance-boosting serum that encourages healthy skin metabolism and strong skin cell turnover for improved brightness, texture and glow.

Phormula 3-9 Discovery Set  – Includes Phormula 3-9 Repair Cream (1.7oz) and Phormula 3-9 Repair Serum (0.5oz) (limited edition)

Skin & Diet

Published on by

The warm weather means the living’s easy, you kick back and have a margarita with the girlfriends, a glass of wine with the husband, a beer or two at the neighborhood cookout. Before you know it, the pretty fresh-faced girl that you were in June is looking ten years older by August.

We wonder… how does alcohol affect the way we look? While we’re not here to preach and tell you that drinking is all bad business we do want to warn you that overindulging too frequently can make you look older.

Alcohol can cause wrinkles. It dehydrates the skin, delaying the production of collagen and in turn deepening lines.

Because alcohol dehydrates the body it also slows down cellular turnover, which means dull skin. By quenching your thirst with an ice cold beer you’re not quenching your body’s need for water, and lack of water means your skin looks even duller. Sugary drinks are a double-whammy, the sugar molecules in sweet beverages cause glycation, a process in which sugar attaches to proteins, causing brittle and weak collagen.

Alcohol makes the eyes and face puffy, too. It dilates blood vessels and causes redistribution of fluids, which is then most apparent around the eye area.

Alcohol disrupts a healthy diet. Nobody wants to eat spinach after a night of drinking, and that’s because the body is trying to bring itself into balance by craving greasier and saltier foods which balance out alcohol’s high acid content.

If you happen to drink one too many daiquiris anyway remember to rehydrate before bed by drinking a big glass of water, and applying a hyaluronic-rich serum or cream (we like Goldfaden Blueberry and Pomegranate Anti-Glycation Hydrating Serum). In the morning de-puff with a cold compress or ice mask.


It’s Prime Time

Published on by

These days most of us are looking for easy to use products that are affordable and effective. We often look to products that provide a multitude of different benefits, too. There is a thin line between skin care and cosmetics but there are mergers between the two. A very important step in any daytime regimen which comes before any cosmetic application is a good primer. You can save yourself some time by looking for a primer that offers added anti-aging benefits. There are all kinds of different ones to choose from but here are some of our favorite primers to add into your beauty regimen.

  • Boscia Skin Perfecting Primer: Contains Hydroxyproline and Lactobacillus which can leave skin looking smooth without an oily appearance. This product also contains Willow Herb, a unique anti-irritant, and Jojoba Leaf, a strong and effective antioxidant.
  • Fusion Beauty Prime Results Anti-Wrinkle Primer: Contains Matrixyl 3000™ to help improve the appearance of skin elasticity and tone, Rosa Multiflora Fruit Extract which can visibly reduces the appearance of adult pores, peptides to help improve skin firmness and Hyaluronic which helps to immediately plump fine lines or wrinkles.
  • Peter Thomas Roth UnWrinkle Primer: Containing six different peptides & neuropeptides, Vitamin E, Vitamin C & Vitamin A to improve skin tone and texture.

So before you just throw on any old primer before your foundation, make sure to use one that benefits your skin, too!

Hot Product- Perricone MD Acyl-Glutathione

Published on by

It’s often said that beauty is pain, but are injections and surgery truly necessary? Before running to the derm for your next Botox appointment you may consider weighing your options. Dr. Nicolas Perricone has recently launched his latest wonder product Acyl-Glutathione (a.k.a. the Crease Cure), which delivers impressive results without going under the knife.

Acyl-Glutathione addresses the accelerated signs of aging and helps restore skin to a more youthful appearance. Glutathione is a prominent antioxidant that rapidly depletes with age, stress, and environmental damage. Its replenishment is critical to help the skin’s defense against accelerated aging. Acyl-Glutathione can be used as both a preventative and corrective treatment.
A four week independent consumer use study revealed astonishing results. 85% saw a reduction in the appearance of horizontal forehead creases, 90% saw a reduction in the appearance of eleven lines, 85% saw a reduction in the appearance of smile lines, 88% saw a reduction in the appearance of marionette lines, and 90% saw an improvement in the overall youthfulness of their skin and felt more confident about their skin.

SkinStore customers agree, CobraChick222 from Michigan said, “With continued use, my forehead is completely crease-free and lines between my brows are virtually invisible – I’m 44! I have deep nasal labial folds, and after using Acyl just a short amount of time, I’m beginning to see a lifting and release of the folds.”

The results speak for themselves!
