Lifeline Skin Care (through its parent company, ISCO) is the first company in the world to discover how to create human non-embryonic stem cells -- and how to take extracts from them. As a result, you need never be concerned that a viable human embryo was damaged or destroyed to create these anti-aging products.

The advanced skincare technology is a one of a kind system! "The theory of how human stem cells produce beneficial effects for human skin cells is based on how stem cells communicate with the cells surrounding them. Human cells have the ability to communicate with each other using various types of signals. These cell-to-cell messages can be in the form of protein molecules that the stem cells send out to instruct their neighboring cells to create new cells either to repair damaged tissue or during early human development. The first stage in the process of creating the serum is to extract these proteins from living parthenogenetic (non-embryonic) stem cells." [SOURCE

Lifeline Skin Care's exclusive anti-aging products are a combination of several discoveries and unique high-technology, patent-pending formulations.

  • They extract critical "messaging molecules" (or proteins) from human, non-embryonic stem cells.  These "messaging molecules" instruct their neighboring cells to divide -- to create a proliferation of new skin cells. 
  • The bioactive growth factors are encapsulated in a lipid bi-layer to both preserve the potency and activity of the growth factors, as well as to ensure their stability and penetration until they have been delivered to the skin.

I happily picked up the LifeLine Defensive Day Moisture Serum and the LifeLine Eye Firming Complex to review! The first product I tried was the LifeLine Eye Firming Complex which was packaged in a perfect delivery system that dispensed just the right amount of product. It had an angled tip that was easy to use and is designed to not contaminate product but dipping your finger in and out of a jar. The other bottles were airless and also dispensed the right amount of product without any worry of contaminating the rest of the product. The eye cream was very soothing and instantly felt very nourishing and hydrating when applied. I could feel the tightening effects around my eye as it absorbed in and I could see instant brightening and radiance from the area around my eyes! I love applying this everyday! It has been nearly a month and my eyes have shown a dramatic difference of smoothing out my fine lines and really plumping my skin improving the health and appearance of my eyes. I don't even have to wear concealer under my eyes :)

It's no secret that eyes can age you. Whether it be from lack of sleep, traveling, holidays, weather or starring at the computer for too long our eyes are fragile and can deteriorate with the abuse we put it through daily. I feel like it is the place that is starting to breakdown and really show my age, and I'm still young! Even the esthetician at the Guerlain Spa recommended I work on treating my eyes more. My eyes are my favorite feature so of course these things are concerning for me. I have a select few faves I use for various needs and times but I have found an incredible fall/winter one with Amarté skincare!

amarte skincare eyeconic eye cream beauty youth antiaging

Amarté: Eyeconic Eye Cream first of all impressed me with the packaging! It had a tip on the airless cylinder that led to a flat application head. It dispensed the ideal amount of cream flawlessly to my eyes with each pump and it was SO easy to use! The cream itself was extremely hydrating and added the much needed moisture my eyes were craving. It did not feel greasy or oily at all and it absorbed well leaving my skin soft, smooth and fine lines relaxed to non-existence :) The scent was truly amazing, it's a Ginkgo Spice  that was very pleasing to my senses. The Ginkgo Biloba Nut Extract found in this cream "has a unique odor and is resistant to smoke, disease, and insects. Used in perfumes and as a skin conditioning agent in creams, ginkgo biloba has antioxidant and possible anti-inflammatory properties and appears to aid fibroblast production of collagen and elastin." (source: www.amarteskincare.com) I LOVE this cream! Perfect for the Fall/Winter or if you have drier, more mature skin it's a great product to add over your usual night or day cream and just fine to use before makeup application!

 ABOUT AMARTE: 

Amarte was created in Korea and based in part on centuries old philosophies. Developed at a Bio Regional Innovation Center using leading science, the formula was discovered by American dermatologist, Dr. Kraffert, and introduced to the West.

The word amarte precisely translated means ‘to love you’. The Amarte icon is two interwoven hearts in harmony expressing Amarte’s motto ‘Love yourself. Love your skin.’ The Amarte icon also symbolizes Amarte’s unique pedigree… the inter-connection of different cultures. (source: www.amarteskincare.com)
 
 
This brand was a great discovery and I like the background they bring to their skincare! 
Until next time...Keep On Being Beautiful You!

I LOVE ginger! It tastes good and has many health benefits from eating it. Did you know that ginger in skin care can also have many benefits? Well it does! The Ginger People have it all figured out too with their line GO Skincare with the clever tagline "Energy for the Skin" as the message for the collection. 

All ginger. All natural. The family-owned company has been feeding health-conscious folks ginger for over 25 years. Now they're going to nourish your skin with it. Their creed: Healthy inside, healthy outside.

Herbalists have used ginger for thousands of years to restore energy, stimulate circulation and warm the body. With GO, we are delighted to bring these powerful benefits to the skin. 

The key to GO's efficacy, according to owner Abbie Leeson, is organic essential oil from Madagascar. This powerful, cornerstone ingredient is what puts all the actives of GO into play. By blending this pure oil with other nature-derived active ingredients, they bring you GO with pride and promise that GO will bring life, energy and ginger's goodness to your skin. 

I personally have been eating the company's GinGin candies obsessively for years now! I was THRILLED and intrigued when I saw they had a skin care line available. When it came into the office I of course wanted to try them all...but there are other writers I have to share with (booo). My favorite type of skin care products are serums and eye treatments so when I saw the GO Skincare: Ginger Eye Cream I took it!

VineVera Resveratrol Eye Collection 7.22.13 Certified FabulousDon’t you just love it when people say “wow, you look really tired,” after you had a full nights sleep and feel fine?? I've mentioned in the past my terribly dark-under eye circles (thanks for the crappy genes mom). I am always willing to try any product which is indicated for dark circles or under eye puffiness, and this month I was able to test a true winner. One of the nicest under eye creams I have ever experienced, Vine Vera’s Resveratrol Eye Collection Dark Circle Eye Cream is so luxe, I can hardly stand it.

 

What makes this under eye cream so amazing is that it is formulated with Resveratrol (Pitchia/Resveratrol Ferment Extract). Pichia/ResveratrolResveratrolResveratrol, found in the skins of grapes, is a phytoalexin, a defense mechanism produced by several other plants (peanut skins) to fend off attacking bacteria. It has been reported in numerous studies to be one of the most potent natural chemopreventive agents inhibiting the cellular processes associated with tumor development, including initiation, promotion, and progression. It also has significant anti-inflammatory, cancer-fighting and anti-aging properties. In cosmetics and personal care it is used as an antioxidant agent, an anti-inflammatory, skin lightening & brightening agent, and sun damage repair agent.

 Ferment Extract promotes the synthesis of Type IV Collagen, and improves overall appearance of the skin. What an amazing ingredient! This amazing product is also full of Caffeine and Vitamins A (Retinyl Palmitate) and E (Tocopheryl Acetate) to reduce the immediate look of tired eyes, while hydrating the delicate eye area.

The first thing I must describe is the beautiful packaging.  This cream comes wrapped up like a beautiful gift. The heavy walled jar is a beautiful copper/burgundy color and it comes encapsulated in a beautiful heavy box like a fine gift. The cream is extremely thick, so be mindful to use sparingly. The directions suggest to gently apply cream to area under eyes and along orbital bone using the ring finger. I noticed  a decrease in under eye puffiness immediately, it was amazing. After using for 3 days, I noticed a decrease in the darkness of my under-eye circles as well.  Truly an amazing, luxurious eye cream that I would recommend to anyone!!
