I played sports outside for years and even though I wore sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat my face still took a lot of damage. I had sunspots(that I am still battling every summer) and some forehead scowl wrinkles that has deepened from fine to actual lines, plus the deepening of the smile lines by my eyes and some under eye fine lines in development. I had been doing a skin care regiment since I was in college but was to the point where I was debating fillers 😱
Before I went to that extreme I started using the korres golden krocus, also known as face mana from the gods. This stuff tightened and started decreasing my fine lines. I felt the tightening instantly and the fine lines decreasing gradually over a few bottles. I had a few other face products in rotation but wasn't seeing the results I wanted. In comes the Korres Pinedirming, lifting, and anti-wrinkle eye cream! The dark circles I get sometimes from late nights on set and little sleep were almost vanquished with this baby! Also the fine lines dissipated the first use. I had been using bliss for bags but it didn't really do the trick. This stuff blows that out of the water! I use it twice a day now. So back to the fillers, I am a Sephora VIB and got an email about the Dr Jarts needles no more mask. I'm the skeptical sort and the reviews weren't glowing so I bought a trial size to test it out. Honestly I felt results immediate from the first use. It gave a stronger tightening sensation on my face when compared to Korres Golden Krocus and my forehead deepening scowl lines looked filled. I had been using Golden Krocus for a few months and I got more results from one use of Dr Jarts! Now I still use both because, face mana, but needles no more does the trick!
It took me a lot of trial and error to find a system that achieved my goals so I thought I would share the wealth! Another tip for you, but trial size versions on eBay to see if you love it! Or go to Sephora and ask them for samples of their product, they'll usually give them to you. It's about one or two uses but you'll get the idea. Oh and a bonus mask that smoothes your face texture that smells amazing and makes your face feel amazing is
Have a fabulous day and take care of your face 😘
Oh and a bonus mask that smoothes your face texture that smells amazing and makes your face feel amazing is the Tata Harper resurfacing mask! I got a makeover at Sephora fairly hung over and this lifted my skin and made it glow for a fantastic face base for makeup.
Second mask I now use in my routine is the Sephora mud mask! It's only $20 and it makes my face feel baby bottom smooth! And while Tata Harper is a 20-30 min endeavor Sephora's is only 5 min or when dry. Great for the quick picker upper.
If you're still reading congrats! I have one more face essential I use twice daily that really made a difference in my skin, the Clarisonic Mia 2. This has been a face savior! I also use it on my hands to keep them exfoliated and youthful. Now you could buy this baby for $169 at Sephora but I picked mine up on eBay for $37. You may have to snipe bid but it's worth it. There's also often buy it now ones available for around $40. There are also off brand head replacements for different conditions(deep pore, sensitive, normal).
You are very welcome!
Thanks for for sticking around to read.
