If you have been following along, you may have noticed I am a huge fan of Perricone MD skin care products. They offer intense skin therapy which helps alleviate a variety of problems with skin. When I received this bottle of Perricone MD’s Cold Plasma Plus+ Fragile Skin Therapy body treatment from Perricone MD last week, I was thrilled! I have been on the hunt for something to combat the aging skin on my arms, and now I have the weapon!

I spent my childhood on a competitive swim team, which means I was in the pool training for over twenty-five hours per week. Needless to say, my skin had a ton of sun exposure. Now that I am an adult, I am dealing with the repercussions of being in a swimming pool, with the sun reflecting off the water, for hours on end. Any product which promises to tighten the skin on my arms, leaving it smooth, is a product I want in my skin care routine!

The key ingredients in the Perricone MD Cold Plasma Plus+ Fragile Skin Therapy body treatment formula are Growth Factor Peptide, which visibly firms skin, Micro-Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which combats crepiness, and Retinol, which accelerates skin renewal. This combination makes an amazing formula which helps tighten skin, making it look fabulous! Love!

My arms are where I need it most, so I have been using my Perricone MD Cold Plasma Plus+ Fragile Skin Therapy body treatment on my arms before I apply sunscreen. This ensures it absorbs into my skin. I already notice a difference in one week! Love that!

I am excited to continue using Perricone MD Cold Plasma Plus+ Fragile Skin Therapy body treatment under my SPF protection in order to combat aging on my arms, and in order to protect my skin as much as possible. If you are looking for a product to combat aging skin on your body, this is it! You can find Perricone MD Cold Plasma Plus+ Fragile Skin Therapy body treatment online here.

Estee Lauder Perfectionist Pro Rapid Renewal Retinol Treatment review

As someone who has celebrated the anniversary of her 39th birthday for a few years now. . .a-hem. . .my skin is at a phase in life where fine lines, and dark spots, are starting to be visible. As much as I would like to pretend none of this is on my face, it is! I can’t ignore it when I look in the mirror.

Although I have decided to stay 39 forever, my skin knows my true age has a four in front of it. A-hem, pretend you didn’t read that. Anyway. . . retinol is one of the most effective treatments in combating wrinkles and helping one’s skin defy age. Since I aim to defy my age, this is a treatment with my name written all over it!

Estee Lauder has been one of my favorite go-to skin care and makeup brands since I was in high school. They always use advanced technology to create the most amazing products which actually work! I’m currently addicted to their eye cream, which I swear, has reduced fine lines around my eyes over time. Since their eye cream works magical wonders on my skin, I was excited when Estee Lauder sent me their Perfectionist Pro Rapid Renewal Retinol treatment to test out; I knew it would be fabulous!!

When using a retinol treatment, it is good to avoid going out in the sun. This is the one good thing about all the grey, rainy weather we have been having over the past month. Since there are zero sunny days, it has been the perfect time to use this Estee Lauder Perfectionist Pro Rapid Renewal Retinol treatment on my facial skin. Of course, even if the sun isn’t shining, it is important to use a strong SPF on your skin during the day because the rays can still get through the clouds and you will need to protect your skin while using a retinol treatment even more; but I digress, back to this fabulous product!

I have fallen in love with Estee Lauder’s Perfectionist Pro Rapid Renewal Retinol treatment. It has evened out my skin tone, reducing dark spots so that they can hardly be seen. This is really important for me since I shy away from wearing foundation, preferring a foundation powder in my daily makeup routine. I want my skin to have a clean, even look. This product helps me keep that up!

The Estee Lauder Perfectionist Pro Rapid Renewal Retinol treatment is a great item to keep in your beauty arsenal if you have dark spots and/or fine lines/wrinkles. I’m all about using products, rather than getting injections, to keep skin looking it’s best. So, if you like to be natural too, this is a must have!

You can find the Estee Lauder Perfectionist Pro Rapid Renewal Retinol treatment online here.

My current Estee Lauder obsessions:

Have you tried retinol before? What did you think?

I’m so excited about these new Superfood products from Elemis! As you know, I am a huge fan of Elemis skin care products. Their Marine cream is my holy grail, go-to cream for daytime skin care. So, when Elemis sent me their new skin care products from the Elemis Superfood collection, I was thrilled!

The new additions to the Superfood skin care collection include two masks, one exfoliator, and a fabulous mist which will be perfect for the upcoming warm weather season. I love using a mist after I have been out in the sun, and when my skin is unusually dry. This new Elemis Superfood Kefir-Tea Mist will be a life-saver for dry skin this spring and summer!

There are two new masks and an exfoliator in the Superfood collection. The Elemis Superfood Blackcurrant Jelly Exfoliator is a fabulous mask for leaving your skin feeling smooth and clean. It’s really gentle, and smells like a jelly sandwich. Yum!

The Elemis Superfood Berry Boost mask absorbs excess oil, which is perfect for my oily skin. It too smells like a jelly sandwich. I’m getting hungry! haha.

Lastly, the Elemis Superfood Vital Veggie Mask brightens skin. This is the perfect mask for refreshing your skin when you are tired or dehydrated. It really freshens up your face!

What I love about the Elemis Superfood skin care collection is that it is made with sustainably-sourced, organic, natural ingredients. They use pre-biotics which fuel and feed your skin’s microbiome; helping to keep your skin healthy and fresh. The vegan-friendly ingredients are filled with nutrients, vitamins, and minerals your skin craves. It’s like food for your skin. Love that!
