The ladies of the Certified Fabulous team are forever looking for ways to fight the unstoppable Father Time. No matter what our budgets are, we deserve skin care products that are going to fight that fight with us! The Certified Fabulous team has found some great products that will do just that.

Burt's Bees will always be a go to brand for many of us and we are happy to say the Intensive Firming Serum and Smoothing Eye Cream did not disappoint. Both come in a durable plastic bottle that can travel with you anywhere you go. The Hibiscus and Apple Rejuvenating Complex are clinically shown to reduce the look of deep wrinkles and help improve firmness by hydrating your skin and plumping the skin cells to minimize the appearance of all fine lines. My very favorite benefit of the smoothing eye cream is how instantly it helped reduce the dark circles under my eyes! After 8 weeks of use, over 86% of women said that they noticed a reduction in deep lines, wrinkles, and under eye discoloring and puffiness. Both are a very smooth, light cream that blend into your skin nicely for only $20 each.

Another brand the team tends to get excited about is Clairvoyant Beauty. They have an amazing Hydrating Roses Cream face moisturizer and Rosewater Eye Cream. These creams have a very light rose scent that makes me want to bathe myself in it. The duo is rich in Vitamin B3 and instantly hydrates and softens your eyes and face. The eye cream is very smooth and has a refreshing cooling effect that feels amazing as soon as it is applied. The face cream is also very soft and fairly light weight making it a perfect moisturizer for year round use. These can be purchased together as an amazing gift set for just $25 or purchased in larger jars at $38 for the face moisturizer and $30 for the eye cream. Both are a good bang for your buck.

I had the pleasure, twice now, to visit the celebrity hot spot Guerlain Spa at the famous Waldorf Astoria in NYC so I was thrilled to learn that they had their own beauty and skincare collections! My last visit to the spa I actually experienced the skincare line in my Radiance Facial and then became obsessed with maintaining my complexion from that day on. What better than to be able to do so in the comfort of my own home and for less than daily spa visits!  

guerlain Super Aqua-Eye Anti-Puffiness Soothing Eye Patch spa luxury celebrity treatment

GUERLAIN skincare uses potent luxury ingredients that are formulated to get results, and the results have shows on more than a few celebrities that hold the brand as their top must-have! GUERLAIN: Super Aqua-Eye Anti-Puffiness Smoothing Eye Patches are packets with cut-out under eye patches soaked in the perfect amount of anti-puffiness serum. An extraordinary instant eye-contour skin smoother that hydrates and strengthens! These fine and translucent eye patches adapt to the shape of the delicate eye area to smooth skin and decongest the eye by reducing puffiness and fighting dark circles. The results are immediate: the eye area looks smoothed and relaxed; the eyes are refreshed and glowing with youth. Easily fake a good night sleep with these! I LOVED the patches and it immediately cooled my hot, tired eyes and instantly calm and smooth them for eye perfection!!! The skin is tightened and brightened flawlessly and I couldn't of been more happy! These work wonders if you have one of those random crying moments too...takes care of that in 10 minutes! I like to wear these when I travel or had a late night, they are the ideal travel companion. $100 for 6 sachets, makes this a splurge you must try at some point!

guerlain abeille royal youth serum antiaging skincare

Another INCREDIBLE treatment I was able to experience, GUERLAIN: Abeille Royal Youth Serum. I was seriously impressed with how well this worked! I saw fine lines fade and smooth out instantly upon application! They promise visible results in only 7 days but I saw a difference right away and it only got better the more I used it. From the product claims: "Bee products are known to be some of the world’s most effective natural healing substances. Born from their active power, a unique serum with Pure Royal Concentrate that stimulates the key mechanisms of the healing process within the skin to help continuously repair wrinkles and promote tissue firmness". The product is slightly thicker than a serum and is almost like a very light lotion, which feels amazing going on the skin and gives immediate hydration but not overdoing it to my combination skin. I look forward every night to applying this and I even add some in the morning before my makeup...I can't get enough of this! I still have nearly a full bottle, yet I am already trying to figure out what I will sacrifice to be able to buy this again! hah. Yeah, it's around $140 a bottle...but SO worth the splurge :)

I love wine! I believe that, in moderation, it can be very beneficial and healthy for your body. The statistics also suggest red wine to be the best for you and when I had a chance to review a skincare line that contained red wine benefits for your skin, I was intrigued. 

Vine Vera uses Resveratrol which is an antioxidant found in red wine and grapes. This substance is usually created in the outer layers of the grapes. The use of Resveratrol is believed to help slow the aging process and retain a timeless youthful appearance. As a naturally occurring antibiotic, Resveratrol works to cleanse the body of impurities. As a result, it helps maintain the skins health and elasticity while preventing new wrinkles and reducing the appearance of existing ones. Resveratrol contains antioxidants that will eliminate the free radicals responsible for the appearance of wrinkles and is a key ingredient in all our skincare products.

VineVera Resveratrol Age Defying Eye Serum 7.24.13 Certified FabulousI was happy to test out the Vine Vera Resveratrol Age Defying Eye Serum, since I am also a huge fan of eye serums (and wine) :) I was very impressed with how easily it went on and absorbed in. It felt cooling and as it absorbed I felt it tightening and it left a nice protective "shield" under my eyes. It was in no way sticky or greasy, that is why I tend to love serums more than a lotion or cream.

"It is better to trust the eyes rather than the ears."

"The eye is the mirror of the soul."

"What the eye does not admire the heart does not."

Everyone knows the importance of their eyes...for obvious reasons. Like a smile is an important first impression so are the eyes, since that is what people are looking at the majority of the time during a conversation! I truly believe you can tell a lot from a person's eyes and feel it is important to have them looking their best. No one likes looking into red, eyes with dark circles and saggy skin. Looking like you never sleep is not really a look people want to have or to look at. You might not even be tired, but your eyes reveal a whole other story.

When I look at tired, droopy eyes it gives me the impression of defeat and weakness, and who wants to give off that impression?? Age is a factor in this look, actually not getting much sleep is another, but a large reason is the effect of the sun on your face! So many people apply sunscreen on their bodies faithfully but skimp on their face, which has the most delicate skin to worry about. Even if you wear sunglasses or sit under an umbrella on the beach the sun is bound to get you, when you least expect it! Do you put sunscreen on before you go to work or if you just go out for a walk in your neighborhood? Most people would answer no. Even on an overcast day the sun can reflect harmful rays that you wouldn't even think about.
