TP040-ae-dermal-restructReplenix® AE products

Concerned about fine lines and wrinkles, skin tone and texture and already love other Replenix® products?   The Replenix® AE Facial Firming Therapy and Replenix® AE Dermal Restructuring Therapy products, purchased separately or as a duo provide a unique, comprehensive peptide & antioxidant system that help diminish the appearance of fine lines, quench damaging free radicals and build a collagen-rich skin appearance.

The Replenix® Facial Firming Therapy relaxes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and immediately firms, tones, tightens the skin, and prepares the skin for new collagen (re-building.)

The Replenix® Dermal Restructuring Therapy cosmetically enhances rebuilding of the skin from beneath and protects the renewed skin from further damage, brightening and restoring elasticity to give a more youthful skin glow.

The Replenix® AE Facial Firming Therapy & Replenix® AE Dermal Restructuring Therapy can be used together once or twice daily, with the Replenix® AE Facial Firming Therapy applied first, and the Replenix AE Dermal Restructuring afterwards or individually.

For Replenix® Retinol Smoothing Serum users, adding the Replenix® AE Facial Firming and Dermal Restructuring Therapies, help create the ultimate skin care regimen for all skin types, especially those with mature or sun damaged skin.    One can use the Replenix® AE Dermal Restructuring Therapy in the morning after cleansing, and before applying sunscreen.  This product, uses Palmitoyl Pentapeptide 3 to help diminish the appearance of wrinkles & fine lines by supporting new dermal collagen growth.  In addition, using the Replenix® Dermal Restructuring Therapy under sunscreen helps quench free radicals with therapeutic levels of green & white tea polyphenols, which is especially important during the day when UV exposure is so high.

At night, the Replenix® Facial Firming Therapy can be used after cleansing, and before applying the Replenix® Retinol Smoothing Serum, to relax the appearance of surface fine-lines and wrinkles, and give immediate firming, tightening & toning to the skin, while the Replenix® Retinol Smoothing Serum, works to support new collagen growth by infusing moisture and nutrients and increasing firmness & elasticity.  For dry skin types, adding the Replenix® Dermal Restructuring Therapy over the Replenix® Retinol Smoothing Serum will give further hydration, and “plumping of the dermis*” with the added benefits of Sodium Hyaluronate, and Ceramide 2 for lipid replenishment and maintenance of the barrier function.

If you love the Replenix® CF Cream or Replenix® Power of Three Cream products, you will love the Replenix® AE Dermal Restructuring Therapy, especially those with dry, mature skin.  Along with the same therapeutic levels of Green Tea Polyphenols, this product has Palmitoyl Pentapeptide 3 to help diminish the appearance of wrinkles & fine lines by supporting new collagen growth, Sodium Hyaluronate to intensely hydrate and plump the dermis, Ceramide 2 for lipid replenishment and maintenance of the barrier function, as well as LYCD, a cosmetic skin conditioner which has been reported to support cellular oxygenation in therapeutic topical products.

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!

Hot Ingredient: Matrixyl 3000

Published on by

What is Matrixyl 3000? Matrixyl 3000 is a combination of two peptides palmitoyl oligopeptide and palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7.  This is an advanced formulation of the early edition of Matrixyl. These peptides are believed to stimulate collagen production by approximately 117% and also increase the hyaluronic acid production in your skin. The peptides stimulate the skin to reduce wrinkles and will also increase firmness in the skin. It is also believed that Matrixyl 3000 is less irritating on the skin than retinol or vitamin C. Even the most sensitive skin types can use this peptide, as it does not cause inflammation.

A combination of the palmitoyl oligopeptide and palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7, will provide greater benefits then versus when used alone.  Together, they increase collagen production, reduce wrinkle depth and density. There has also been reports of an overall improved tone and texture of the skin. Matrixyl 3000 is said to firm the skin by reversing and preventing glycation damage to your skin. Glycation occurs when glucose and protein link together and cause the skin to stiffen resulting in dramatic decreases in collagen and elastin within the skin. This ingredient is a skin saver because it slows down the skin’s natural aging process, by promoting healthy skin from the inside out.

Here are some featured products on that contain Matrixyl 3000:

Discover Erno Laszlo Phormula 3-9

Published on by


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.


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.


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.


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 39 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)
