One of the first products Marta entrusted to my perusal and review was Chella’s Skin Firming Serum, which I found gave a winning performance.  Now, well over a year hence, I was pleased to find in my mailbox two more of the Chella Skin Care line to try out.

A clear, lightweight and fragrance free serum, Chella Lift Recovery Micro Sculpt Concentrate ($95) is meant to help address the issue of skin laxity, namely facial contours. The suggested target application areas are the upper eye lid, above and below the brow, and neck and jowl line, applying twice daily after cleansing.

Used down to the very last pump, this serum absorbed immediately, didn’t break me out and has performed well for me.  I began seeing results in the third week with the upper eyelid area having a more lifted appearance.  This area showed the greatest improvement with the jaw line coming in second with a firmer contour; however, I didn’t see any improvement to the neck itself. (Although I don’t have a huge amount of laxity in these areas, there is enough that I know they need attention now, to prevent them from going further south.)  Even without any effect to the neck area, the positive results I see to the eye and jaw line do merit recommending this product.

While using the Lift Recover, I also tried Chella’s Line Antidote Micro Fill Concentrate ($75).  Designed to improve facial lines, this is a quite thick, unfragranced cream that took several minutes to fully absorb into the skin.  This one I applied to the targeted areas of the fine lines at the corner of the eyes and the marionette lines.  I applied twice daily per instructions and although this is a rather heavy formula, surprisingly I didn’t experience any breakouts, but unfortunately I also didn’t see any results. Even the very fine lines at the corners of the eyes didn’t show any improvement, so this one I can’t say did anything for me.
