The aptly named Divine Cream is L’Occitane’s luxury anti-aging day cream. This rich cream melts into skin providing instant comfort and nourishment. Using a powerful combination of organic essential oils to stimulate the production of collagen, it claims to smooth wrinkles for skin that is visibly firmer, brighter and younger looking. I have extremely dry skin and was very pleased with how soothed and moisturized my skin felt when using this, without looking shiny or greasy. Fair warning, the cream does have a strong perfume scent which I think smells really nice, but may seem cloying to those who prefer non-scented products.

Over the years, I’ve tried various anti-aging creams and serums — after all, it’s never too early to start action against the signs of aging. What I’ve never tried, however, is a complete anti-aging system that targets aging using products that work together for an even more effective regime. Enter L’Oreal Paris RevitaLift Triple Power Collection, an anti-aging system that includes three products working together to repair wrinkles, re-firm contours and replenish facial volume.

The three products included in the system are:

  • Triple Power Concentrated Serum that claims to smooth skin and improve skin tone in 1 week and visibly reduce wrinkles in 4 weeks.
  • Triple Power Deep-Acting Moisturizer stimulates collagen production to increase elasticity, making skin look younger, firmer and lifted.
  • Triple Power Eye Treatment to reduce wrinkles and firm and lift the eye area.

In the past few years, I’ve noticed that my smile lines have become more pronounced and a loss of firmness in the skin around my eyes, so anti-aging treatments have become a priority for me. Over the next month, I will be testing out this system and sharing the results each week, so stay tuned!

L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift introduces Triple Power - three anti-aging skincare products designed to help fight the 3 dimensions of aging. When just fighting wrinkles isn’t enough, you need to go beyond a one-dimensional approach to restore skin’s youthful look. Challenge this approach with a powerful and luxurious cream (Triple Power Deep-Acting Moisturizer) that visibly addresses the three dimensions of aging skin: wrinkles, loss of facial volume and loss of firmness. The RevitaLift Triple Power collection also includes a Concentrated Serum and an Eye Treatment.

La-Prairie-Ultra-Protection-Stick.jpgSummer may be over (cue the crying now), but it’s still hot, humid and sticky outside. And you know what that means? We’ll still be spending a whole lot of time on the beach or walking around outside! So, as a result, we need our trusty La Prairie Ultra Protection Stick by our side.

We love this stick because it protects anywhere you want to roll it! Lips, nose, ears, under the eyes, the eyelids, even the backs of your knees … you name it, you can rub it there! We especially love it as a lip balm, since it moisturizes and conditions the lips and lasts for hours—and, since we’re addicted to lip balm, this makes us happy!

Plus, it’s formulated with SPF 40. How great is that?

by-Terry-Gelee-De-Rose.jpgFor total luxury in your skincare routine, look no further than by Terry Gelee de Rose. Now, this moisturizer has quite the extravagant price tag—$93, to be exact. Not the least expensive one around, but definitely not the most! (Think La Mer, Estee Lauder…) And on days (or weeks, or months, or years, or … okay, you get the point) when you need a little perk-up, this moisturizer definitely does the trick.

For starters, it smells like—you guessed it—roses. The scent is heady but not cloying or overpowering, so you can still wear scented body lotion or perfume and not feel like they’re competing for attention. But the scent of this moisturizer is just so divine—you’ll be hard-pressed to find another one that smells this fantastic!

And, of course, it makes skin look dewy, glowy and otherwise perfect. The combination of three roses detoxify, soothe and enhance the skin in a gel-cream texture that’s whipped, light and fluffy. Immediately upon application, skin is hydrated and nourished, even if dryness lurks underneath.

In short? We’re in love.

Simple-Revitalizing-Eye-Roll-On.jpgYou know those mornings when you just don’t want to get out of bed … and it’s not because you haven’t gotten a lot of sleep, but because you don’t want anyone to see the bags and puffiness under your eyes? That’s where the Simple Revitalizing Eye Roll-On comes in handy.

Recently, I’ve had a major problem sleeping, and this little tube has become my eyes’ saving grace! Gone is the puffiness, gone are the dark circles, gone are the huge bags … and the relief is instantaneous. Really, the moment I roll the cooling silver applicator under my eyes, I look well-rested and refreshed!

This is thanks to ingredients like Pro-Vitamin B5 (which softens and smooths skin), cucumber extract (which revitalizes skin), and glycerin (which hydrates and nourishes the skin). It’s a bonus that there are no harsh dyes or chemicals added. And the silver ball applicator just feels so good against the skin, especially in hot and humid temperatures!

Plus, I was already a fan of the brand’s cleansing wipes, so discovering this baby seemed like a natural evolution for my skincare routine!
