Today I have a special treat for my loyal followers and readers. As many of you know I’ve been using NeoStrata for years and I even got my friends and family hooked! In the spirit of the season I thought I’d introduce you to some of my top product picks and cult faves plus give you a chance to win them all! Your skin will absolutely love you for pampering it so lovingly and I’ve also included my secret weapon for long, thick lashes and lush brows!
First up is the Microdermabrasion Skin Resurfacing Duo. I like microdermabrasion so much that I have my own machine at home and the process works wonders for evening skin tone and texture but not many people are willing to shell out big bucks for an expensive device or spend up to $400 dollars at the spa. We all know that exfoliation is key to sloughing away dead, dull cells in order to achieve a healthy, radiant complexion and NeoStrata's exfoliating duo is the next best thing to a professional treatment.
To use you simply apply the crystals and massage gently for about one minute, then add the activator and massage for another two minutes. The crystals provide wonderful revitalizing benefits so skin appears smooth, supple and polished after just one treatment. The Activator releases powerful anti-aging ingredients to enhance skin clarity and boost radiance. This product retails for $75.00.
The Youth Factor GF Total Regenerating Serum is one of my favourites for improving texture, tone, hydration, blemishes and so much more! Although I don’t have wrinkles and other visible signs of aging this is a fabulous preventative measure for maintaining a beautiful sculpted profile and if time has taken a toll on your skin this potent blend will help revitalize problem areas.
The beautiful pearlescent formula absorbs quickly with no greasiness and helps reduce wrinkles by up to 69%, increase skin hydration by 72% and enhance elasticity by up to 60%. It also uses Epidermal Growth Factor to stimulate cell renewal and regenerate collagen and elastin to fortify skin. The serum retails for $78.00.
Since winter can be terribly drying many of us need to increase moisture and quench dehydrated skin to prevent peeling, flaking, dullness and irritation. The Hydra-Infusion Lotion has a fabulous oil-free formula for light, shine-free hydration that feels comfortable and works well at night, during the day and under makeup. The cream is infused with mineral rich Amazonian White Clay that absorbs excess oil without drying out the skin and it is also non-irritating and ideal for all skin types. This cream leaves my face soft, supple and ready to battle the winter wind! It retails for $30.00.
As a Beauty Editor who tests and uses a lot of makeup I know how important it is to cleanse your skin at the end of the day and unclog those pores. The Gel cleanser is among my faves because the formula removes impurities, dead cells and excess oil without stripping and the gentle formula is suitable for all ages. The gel produces a bit of suds for a refreshing clean and the formula contains Glycolic acid which helps to smooth, resurface and balance pH. The cleanser retails for $30.00.
Last but not least is my favourite Lash Enhance Serum on the market. This nourishing formula infused with fruit stem cells and thickening peptides is my secret to long, thick eyelashes. After just a few days of use I applied a few coats of my favourite mascara and noticed a huge difference in how plush, volumized and accentuated my lashes looked. I wasn’t the only one who noticed the growth, my friends and family began asking if I was wearing falsies! The formula is clinically proven to visibly lengthen lashes by up to 46% in just two weeks and up to 72% in 6 weeks although my results were much quicker! I usually apply it before bed so it doesn’t get into my eyes but the formula is non-irritating so it doesn’t burn. Although I would have preferred a mascara-like applicator instead of a thin brush the formula fortifies to help prevent hair loss and you can also use it on your brows to thicken sparse, thinning areas. The serum retails for $60.00.
