New Year Skin Goals: Kate Somerville’s ‘Age Arrest: Anti-Winkle Cream’

age-arrest-cream_carton_jar_2

Continuing on with our New Year skin goals, I recommend the ‘Age Arrest: Anti-Winkle Cream’.  We are aging and a cream that is effective, that makes you look and feel great is a step in the right direction for 2017.

Introducing Age Arrest from Kate Somerville, the first anti-aging treatment with Telo-5™ Technology, based on Nobel Prize* winning research on the youthful benefits of prolonging the life of telomeres. As we age, skin cell telomeres shorten and critical youth information is lost. Over time, this leads to wrinkles, dryness, and sagging skin.

Age Arrest’s advanced formula, based on telomere research, is proven to effectively reduce the appearance of wrinkles, increase skin firmness and elasticity, improve the appearance of skin discoloration, and significantly hydrate. Revolutionary Telo-5™ Technology is designed to combat the comprehensive signs of aging and deliver a younger-looking complexion.

Based on the Nobel Prize* winning medical research on telomeres, Telo-5™ Technology is designed to combat the comprehensive signs of aging and deliver a younger-looking complexion.

Age-defying Peptide, with anti-glycation properties, helps to reduce the degradation of collagen and improve the appearance of firmness.

New bio-ferment Extract of Laminaria Kelp works synergistically with skin’s natural Hyaluronic Acid to help diminish the appearance of wrinkles.

A proprietary blend of Sea Whip Extract and Algae Plasma provides immediate and lasting soothing of sensitive skin 5 oz. luxury size for $185 ($80 savings).

How To Use

AM and PM. Use twice a day. Apply a thin, even layer to face and neck. Use alone or layer over a treatment serum. Clinically tested to be safe for sensitive skin.

Steps for bolder, fuller looking lips:

Step 1. Conceal your lips completely using Wake me Up Concealer.

Step 2. Using Lasting Finish 1000 Kisses Lip Liner in a shade a tad darker than your lip colour, overdraw the lip line slightly over the cupids bow and below the center of your bottom lips to create the illusion of fuller lips.

Step 3. Apply Lasting Finish by Kate to your lips and over your lips liner.

The matte formula keeps lipstick from bleeding outside the line of your lips.

Introducing ‘Colour Therapy’ from Sally Hansen: Well, Well, Well (110), Buffalo Nickel (670) and Unwine’d (370)

Finally, gorgeous “Color That Cares While You Wear.” The first Sally Hansen nail polish that uniquely blends saturated color and nourishing argan oil in 33 stunning shades created in partnership with Global Color Ambassador, Madeline Poole.

Sally Hansen continues to lead in innovation by introducing its new Color Therapy products: a nail polish, top coat, and nail & cuticle oil, inspired by women’s desire to wear beautiful color while simultaneously caring for their nails. Sally Hansen’s Color Therapy nail polish and top coat contain a patented micro-delivery system that delivers an argan oil-enriched formula, resulting in intensive nourishment and instant moisture for healthier-looking nails. The Color Therapy nail polish needs no base coat so the oil complex can directly contact the bare nail. 9 out of 10 women experienced a noticeable improvement in their natural nails after wearing the Color Therapy nail polish. Vibrant tones, available in three magnificent palettes, glide on for a radiant, shiny finish with up to 10 days of fade-proof, chip-resistant wear. The Color Therapy nail polish provides the ultimate color that cares while you wear, with everything needed to restore nails without sacrificing luminous color.

Complete your manicure with the Color Therapy top coat and nail & cuticle oil, both formulated with the same argan oil contained in the nail polish. The top coat provides an ultra-glossy finish for extended wear, and the nail & cuticle oil, the ultimate in nail therapy, instantly makes nails and cuticles look healthier, restored, and rejuvenated.

The Ingredient Story

Color Therapy blends a complex of natural argan, acai, and evening primrose oil to condition weak, dry nails. Argan oil contains high levels of unsaturated fatty acids, as well as vitamin E, an antioxidant vital for healthy skin and nails. Acai berry oil is rich in omega-3, 6, and 9 essential fatty acids that are valued for nutrition and conditioning in skin and hair care. Evening primrose oil features essential fatty acids that are known to help reinforce hair strength.
