Perfecting the lines and wrinkles…

When you get up around “my age” (*chronologically, of course), we all end up with a few teensy-tiny, and maybe one annoying, wrinkle. It’s there. You know its there. And you want it gone. While many of us do not want to resort to Botox or other cosmetic procedures to make them go away, there are times we just wish they weren’t there.

Well, Estée Lauder is going to try to help with its new line filler, Perfectionist [CP+] Targeted Deep Wrinkle Filler – the latest addition to the “Perfectionist” skincare line. It comes in a small, pen-like tube that makes it easier to apply directly where you want it. Once you apply it, just tap it into the wrinkle and smooth out the edges. This “concentrated treatment that instantly reduces the look of smile lines, crows feet and deep creases around the forehead, brows, and eyes and dramatically blurs the appearance of lip lines to hold back lipstick feathering for up to 8 hours.” Also, “with continued use, skin becomes firmer, lines are blurred and deep wrinkles appear less noticeable for a younger and smoother look.”

Now, this isn’t something I would use everyday, mostly because I don’t go for the full on face of makeup each day. However, I had a chance to try this, and when I do want to go all out, this fills in and gives me a smoother surface to play with. Remember, read the instructions. It says to use this *under* your moisturizer, and, it seems to me, that this is because the filler can be a bit drying, and the moisturizer keeps it from “cracking” while wearing it. Moisturizer also seems to give it a bit of a barrier between foundation, too, as some foundations seem to have a hard time setting over it on its own.

You can pick this up at your local Estée Lauder counter for $39.50. I’d tell you to pick it up online, but it looks like it is “out of stock”. However, if you purchase it online, they will shoot you an email telling you your expected ship date.

If you do pick this up, or are already using it, lemme know. I’m curious how it works with daily usage.

Have a "Pretty" Spring – with a twist

You guys – check out what just came across in my email this afternoon:

“Elizabeth Arden introduces a NEW limited edition, refreshing twist to the famous “Pretty” fragrance. “Pretty Eau de Cologne Splash” offers a fresh, spirited floral bouquet of Pretty with a hint of citrus. This new fragrance is the perfect addition to your glamorous look and carefree mood on a bright spring afternoon!

Almost like Almond pudding

You guys see this picture? It is not a lie – this body souffle/whipped cream, Votre Vu TARTE D’AMANDE Soufflé Riche Pour Le Corps ( ALMOND PIE Rich Soufflé Lotion for the Body), is almost good enough to put in a cup and eat. But DON’T – its not all safe for that.

One of my favorites scents in life is Almond. I don’t know if it goes back to my early Jergen’s Original Cherry Almond scent days or if it is just so close to smelling like Vanilla that does it. All I know is that the smell of Almond is like something from above – oh so good. (*Okay, it’s not from above, but it IS from France).

As for being as good as pudding, I’m talking about the texture of this souffle. This is a rich, and decadent, body cream, BUT, it is not heavy. It absorbs right in, making the skin feel silky and not sticky. It contains so many fatty acids, oils and vitamins like: Grape Seed Oil, Vital, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Macadamia Oil, D Panthenol and Cerasome A and E that are good for your skin, too.

Now, this is more expensive that what I would usually get (RP $48), and I did get this sent to me to try out, but I would HIGHLY recommend this if you ever want to treat yourself or if someone is looking to get you a gift. A little goes a long way, or you can slather it on – your choice. Either way, you are going to feel so treated and soothed you’ll wonder why you didn’t get it sooner. Cross my heart.
