One day I was just doing a general web search for the “best” anti-aging serums and voilà! The TIA website came up, and I clicked on it, and it majorly clicked with me. I have been a devoted member ever since. Fate intervened, and I have now found my beauty haven and guilty pleasure refuge!

I was thrilled and captivated to learn that such a site existed that fairly and ethically shares information and experiences in regards to anti-aging, health and beauty companies and products.

Marta Wohrle, who founded and heads up TIA, really came up with an ingenious concept when she began her journey with making this incredible resource available to the mainstream public. As a beauty product junkie, I am so excited to have the opportunity and privilege to test and review various products on a regular basis. And recently I became a Discover With Marta member and the giddy delight of being able to try so many different prestige brand products six times a year at such an extremely reasonable cost is truly living the beauty dream!

Since I was in my teens, I have always been fascinated with the beauty industry and kept up with the latest products, buzz ingredients, and skincare and makeup techniques. Both writing and aesthetics are two of my extreme passions, and it’s been so fun and gratifying to be able to combine the two evolving and revolving worlds with being a TIA contributor.

My education includes a BA in journalism and a degree and license in aesthetics. As a Midwestern girl in my early 50s, I am grounded, in touch, and celebrate my baby boomer roots. I am always striving to stay ahead of the curve and be avidly informed about the current cutting-edge and best anti-aging beauty products and special treatments available.

The always unbiased and honest truth, interesting informational pieces, open discussions, product picks and ratings, and the TIA shop make this an invaluable one-stop resource and reference abode for anti-aging beauty conscious enthusiasts like myself. Long live TIA!

    Truth Treatment Transdermal Vitamin C and Biomimetic Mist

    Glow-stopping. Plumping. Brightening. Just what I am looking for in the perfect Vitamin C serum. Efferescent radiance that defines the look of youth and vitality.

    Within the last four weeks of testing Truth Treatment Systems Transdermal C Serum ($199) and the Truth Treatment Biomimetic Priming Mist ($39) I have experienced this triple threat of utopic skin rejuvenation. Compliments spanning from “your skin looks really great!” to “what are you doing different … (i.e. getting more rest or drinking more water?”).

    While I have always realized and ...

    Keracell Rejuvenating Rich Moisture Cream

    My approach to skincare is always to use as many high impact results-guaranteed ingredients and formulations as possible, without compromising health and safety.  Which means little or no exposure to chemicals and toxins.  Clean skincare that beautifies and erases signs of aging to the utmost level based on the latest science and proven technology.

    In actual years my skin is fast approaching 60 and is therefore considered to be “mature” and “aging”.  I need as much moisturization and visible rejuvenation that is within my grasp.  Constant ...Read More...

    Your Best Face Define

    Like the eyes, we all know the lips and bordering area can quickly show signs of aging with wrinkling and loss of volume.  As gravity pulls everything down, both the face itself and the mouth area in particular are subject to a structural shift. Bone loss and receding gums add to the erosion problem and the lips deflate and thin out, causing pesky vertical pucker lines that are unsightly and hard to get rid of.

    As I have aged, it has been an ongoing process of exerting full-force damage control to arrest the lines above and below my mouth, as well as the marionette lines, and t ...Read More...

    Derm Institute Youth Alchemy Cream

    Never have I seen an anti-aging treatment with such a long yet impressive list of ingredients as Derm Institute Youth Alchemy Cream ($450). This product has it all and delivers results that exceeded all of my expectations. It really was love at first application, as my skin responded in delight. To say I was “wowed” seems like an understatement. Being of a mature age and inching closer to 60 with each passing year, a product of this caliber with such youth-promoting excellence is to be revered.  

    The ingredient list includes a host of powerful anti ...Read More...

    Sublime Beauty Ageless Serum

    I love to read about and research all of the latest skin care ingredients and the breakthrough technologies and products that address the aging process. Changing up my skin care routine and trying new products based on my findings is exciting. A little self-indulgence and pampering are so worth it to make me feel younger and more confident. What really thrills me, though, is when I try a new product that truly works well on my skin, but doesn’t cost hundreds of dollars.

    Over the past month, I have been using Sublime Beauty Ageless Serum with Renovage & Matrixyl ($49 ...Read More...
