Over the past couple of months I have been trying some new (to me) skin care. These products are great for women who need anti-aging benefits, including wrinkle-smoothing and 0il-controling benefits.
Vbeaute was founded by Julie Macklowe — a former fashion socialite who managed a multi-million dollar hedge fund. Searching for the perfect skincare, scientists introduced Julie to the Swiss botanical stem-cells from the Alpine Rose plant, one of the Longevity Botanicals that have developed near miraculous anti-aging abilities as they’ve adapted over centuries to the harsh conditions such as cold, UV and severe dryness in the High Alps.
“My chemists were able to infuse the original recipe with 21st century bio-chemical power that makes our exclusive vComplex a breakthrough. vComplex allows healing, anti-aging and DNA protecting abilities that track with your skin’s own cellular needs. No matter your age, climate, stress level or lifestyle, v gives your skin exactly what it craves.” The vComplex is a potent Swiss cellular concentrate based on Swiss Alpine Rose Botanical Technology (ARBT), an age-antagonist that provides antioxidant protection in relation to UV damage. Age-altering ingredients. Serious skin treatments. Innovative technology that works on a cellular level. vbeauté helps correct the sins of the past and protect the skin of your future. Prevent premature aging before it has a chance to happen; put time control in your control. V is your victory over time.

I love the instant smoothness that this gives without being sticky or uncomfortable on the skin, like some other instant wrinkle smoothers. Purchase at www.yvesrocherusa.com.
Lumene Vitamin C+ Dry Skin Comfort Radiance Cocktail ($21.99 USD) — Active ingredients from cloudberry brighten the skin, improve moisture balance, and protect against the harmful effects of the environment.

I shake this up and apply it lightly on my skin at night. The next morning, my skin is radiant and not at all greasy. Purchase this at CVS stores, www.drugstore.com.
SkinCeuticals Blemish + Age Defense ($80 USD) Designed specifically for adults, this targeted, oil-free approach to treating adult acne and signs of aging uses a 1st-to-market acid blend combining 2% dioic acid with an alpha- and beta-hydroxy acid formulation designed to prevent acne, minimize hyperpigmentation and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Salicylic acid and LHA combat blemishes; glycolic and citric acids treat fine lines, wrinkles, and roughness; and dioic acid fights acne, reduces excess sebum production and prevents hyperpigmentation that can cause skin to appear prematurely aged. This highly effective, efficient treatment is ideal for acne-prone, aging skin.
