Murad Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum

CYMERA_20131125_162850

I have a few age spots that drive me nuts but the worst is the one on my nose. By the end of summer even with constant sunblock it was really dark. I was interested to see how well the Murad Rapid Age Spot Correcting Serum would work to reduce its appearance.

In the picture below on the top you can see before I started using the product. My age spot is much darker then the photo shoes but the age spot on my nose is quite noticeable even with makeup. I took the bottom picture 2 weeks after I had started using the Rapid Age Spot serum and as you can see my age spot is barely noticeable. Both photos are without any makeup or concealer I am so happy with the results!

I have also started to notice more freckles on my chest and the back of my hands so I started using a bit of the serum there as well and it works! If you are looking for a age spot treatment and don’t want to wait to see the results this is the serum for you.

MURAD Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum $60

What it is:
A fast-acting dark spot treatment serum to help fade and prevent dark spots, age spots, and freckles.

What it is formulated to do:
Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of sun spots and age spots. Hydroquinone fades existing dark spots, age spots, and freckles while hexapeptide-2, an advanced skin-lightening peptide, prevents future damage by helping stop pigment formation. Glycolic acid exfoliates to remove dead skin cells, encouraging active ingredients to penetrate more quickly for fast-acting results. Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum is recommended as the step two treatment in any Murad Environmental Shield® regimen, and targets dark spots and skin discoloration as part of Dr. Murad’s Inclusive Health® system of care.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:

- Parabens
- Phthalates

What else you need to know:
RepleniCell™, Murad’s patent-pending, proprietary technology, helps skin act younger in three ways: it helps skin attract water; it binds water to the skin; and it helps skin retain water. This product is dermatologist developed, scientifically proven, and is not tested on animals.

Research results:
- 88% of study participants saw a more even skintone in 2 weeks

Murad Rapid Age Spot Serum is available to purchase in Sephora stores and online at Sephora.com

OLEHENRIKSEN ultimate l LIFT serum review

CYMERA_20131125_162652

A combination of allergies and lack of sleep had me feeling and looking like Droopy Dog. It may be cute for dogs, but not so cute staring back at me in the mirror. When offered the chance to try the brand spanking new OleHenriksen ultimate lift serum I jumped at the chance.

droopy-02

I have been using the serum for almost a month and man does it work! The serum is really lightweight and has a beautiful soft floral scent. I apply it every morning and at night before bed and I love how quickly it absorbs. One thing I noticed is it seems to work right away making my skin feel tighter and keeps my skin looking smooth all day.

Now after a few weeks use my whole face is looking so much firmer and lifted. It even seems to make my pores less noticeable. If you are starting to see the signs of aging this is one serum you won’t want to miss.

OLEHENRIKSEN ultimate|LIFT serum is a dual-action miracle worker that visibly lifts and restructures skin, while immediately tightening for sculpted facial contours. This lightweight, oil-free serum diminishes the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles and plumps to restore a youthful appearance.

Powered by high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid, skin is densely moisturized and plumped from the inside out and protected by a lightweight barrier that locks in hydration. ultimate|LIFTTM serum also contains a gravity defying complex of copper tripeptide and botanical collagen stimulators to rebuild firmness and elasticity and lock in the hyluronic acid, while restructuring and redensifying skin.

Key Benefits:

* Creates an instantly sculpted, contoured look

* Lifts, tightens and deeply hydrates

* Increases skin density

* Rebuilds collagen and elastin

* Visibly reduces expression line and wrinkles

* Provides anti-oxidant protection

Key Ingredients:

* Hyaluronic Acid “dense hydration” blend hydrates and plumps from the inside out as it forms a moisture barrier

* Copper Tripeptide firms and protects from damaging free radicals

* AHA (Lactic + Glycolic) blend stimulates cell renewal allowing key actives to penetrate deeper

Directions:

* Apply in the AM & PM by gently blending into skin and massaging in an upward motion to help further defy gravity
