Back in June, Marta hailed today's winner as a product that finally addresses the unique skin care issues that result from hormonal aging in women. Over the course of this year, many worthy products have been inducted into the TIA shop. However, this particular product went on to prove it had true staying power, as evidenced by the cameo it made in Marta's recent video roundup of her favorite new brands and products. Osmotics surely has hit a home run with this new addition to its collection of anti-agers.
The Winner: Osmotics Blue Copper 5 Prime
Any woman going through menopause knows that it can present some unexpected challenges — namely, skin that has become thin, dry and sun sensitive. Osmotics Blue Copper 5 Prime seems to be the long-awaited answer to all of these skin care woes. This luscious cream visibly tightens, tones and lifts the skin with an impactful combination of copper peptides, epidermal growth factor, natural artichoke leaf extract, plus a patented new tetrapeptide that stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. To give this product a thorough test, we had six of our most trusted TIA contributors try it for at least 30 days, and we almost couldn't believe it when we received consistent raves from them. It seems that Osmotics Blue Copper 5 Prime has more than earned its spot as the Best New Product Launch of 2014.
Runner Up: Benir Beauty BV-9 Platinum Provectus Super Serum
Benir Beauty BV-9 Platinum Provectus Super Serum ($195 in the shop) is certainly another standout, with an impressive formulation of seven different peptides, antioxidants and bee venom to reverse existing signs of aging. Matrixyl 3000 and Syn-Ake team up together to limit excessive muscle contractions and relaxes fine lines and wrinkles.
