Make Her Up Review: JeNu Active Youth Skincare System!

jenu-6

I’ve had this bad boy for about a month now, and I really wanted to devote some time to trying it out. A lot of these anti-aging products don’t do what they say they will, and offer false hope for positive results. So here I am – introducing you to JeNu’s Active Youth Skincare System!

This little wand is the latest and greatest in ultrasound skincare products. Using this system, you can deliver 12 times the anti-aging ingredients into the skin versus cream alone. You can use it on your eyes (like I did), and your lips. Heck, anywhere you have some lines you want reduced!

For an unprecedented reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, crow’s feet, puffiness, and dark circles around the eyes, look no further than JeNu. Using a completely different approach to anti-aging, JeNu combines the power of gentle ultrasound wave technology with an advanced eye treatment—together they give your eyes the visible, age-defying results you crave. In a clinical study of 30 women, JeNu showed remarkable anti-wrinkle and pro-hydration results in just 2 weeks.

jenu-5

I used this primarily on my eyes, because I have visible bags under my eyes, dark circles, and crow’s feet. Most anti-aging products come only in the form of creams. How about a cream – PLUS a handheld ultrasound wand that will target your trouble areas?? YES PLEASE! This wand helps you reverse the signs of aging, from deep within your skin…not just on a surface level.

JeNu bioscientists in Seattle developed a new way to deliver skin medication with the use of ultrasound waves, to increase the effectiveness of their product. The ultrasound activates the healing ingredients in their Active-Youth Eye Treatment and Lip Serum.  In as few as 14 days, you can see obvious changes in your skin. I DID. I noticed a huge difference in my skin. My eyes look younger, the dark circles are reduced, and the crows feet are shrinking! Next I’m going to try it on my lips, and see what that has to offer. From what I’ve read it plumps the lips, and smooths them out.

JeNu Features and benefits:

  • A professional quality ultrasound system that takes just minutes a day.
  • Infused with advanced microsphere technology and key anti-aging and nourishing ingredients – vitamins A and C, matrixyl peptides, hyaluronic acid, Volulip™ and olive and grapeseed oils.
  • Formulated without parabens, sulfates, triclosans, phthalates or GMOs.

The JeNu Wand works by infusing hundreds of thousands of safe, gentle, ultrasound waves per second into the Active-Youth Eye Treatment and Active-Youth Lip Serum, activating the microspheres. Once activated, the treatment revitalizes the delicate skin around your eyes by infusing proven antioxidants and skin-firming and hydrating ingredients more effectively for up to a 45% reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and up to a 92% increase in hydration. Smoothes away dryness and leaves lips looking full and healthy while restoring skin’s elasticity, refining texture and brightening the complexion.

JeNu System includes:

  • Ultrasound Wand.
  • Active-Youth Eye Treatment.
  • Active-Youth Lip Serum.
  • Wall charger.
  • Countertop charger.
  • User guide.

fragrance1.7ozvanillapassionfruit

I a a huge fan of Lavanila fragrances and the Vanilla Passion Fruit is a whole new scent to adore. While most of the Lavanila line scents fall in the clean and crisp category the Passion Fruit version has definitely has a sexy vibe. It still has all the fresh, fruity vibes of the other lines just with a little more kick while still not overpowering. Great for women of any age.

The Healthy Fragrance Vanilla Passion Fruit
The Tropical Scent of Temptation. A crisp, tropical explosion of Passion Fruit, Guava and Peach Nectar steeped in warm base of sandalwood and Madagascar Vanilla. Created by master natural perfumers and backed by research, this love-attracting scent is uniquely infused with a romantic blend of powerful aphrodisiacs prized for their seductive properties.
