I don’t like self maintenance. Its just never been a strong suit of mine. My gray roots are always showing, my eyebrows grow into one singular eye brown more often that I care to admit, I get manicures when there is nothing left for me to chip off myself, and I use the most basic skin care regimen possible: cetaphil face wash/moisturizer. Its bad I know. So lately I’ve been trying to step up my game a little bit. The first big step for me was admitting how dull my skin has been looking. I got a facial before my wedding and I couldn’t believe the difference it made, but it also made me realize how wrinkled my skin has gotten. So while I’ve made a commitment to get two facials a year (still probably not enough) I have also changed my moisturizer to an anti-aging one that my mom swears by.
It’s been life changing. Honestly, I never believed in this stuff. I figured it was Cetaphil or Botox and anything between was just a crock. Turns out that couldn’t have been more false. They aren’t paying me for this (although they should), I just want to share my experience with Prevage because I wish I had started using this stuff years ago! It has completely changed my skin in a matter of weeks. My forehead creases are almost completely gone. I noticed a HUGE difference within the first week. I have been using both the day and night creams and let me tell you, it is the best money I’ve spent. Its expensive, I’m not going to lie, but if you are looking for a nonsurgical solution to aging, dull and/or wrinkled skin, this stuff works.. at the very least it did for me.
DAY CREAM and NIGHT CREAM
Hi! Love your blog. Did you get your facials done in Chicago? If so- where did you go? Anywhere you would recommend? Thanks!
I LOVE this post! I’m sooo bad at it too. I’m getting married in April and I’m freaking out that I haven’t taken the time to get a facial yet! Aveeno Cleanser and Clean & Clear moisturizer with salicylic acid are about as far as I usually go. I started using Aqua Glycolic products a few months ago, and I use it every few days in combination with my usual routine. I haven’t seen any drastic results though. I’ll have to try the Prevage! A couple of my girlfriends have started on Botox and when admitted to doing so, I was shocked. I thought “Aren’t we 27?!”
Thanks for keepin’ it real!
Interesting – thanks for sharing! I’m going to check this out. I struggle because I like to do all-natural where I can, but for anti-aging, it’s virtually impossible. I like some Dermalogica products, but only a couple are worth the money, IMO.
You basically described my routine. I’ve never been into trying new products and manicures/pedicures freak me out. I’m so intrigued by the cream, I’m willing to splurge.
