It is a special project, to test for TIA, because you are asked to be a bit of a scientist, a critic, teacher and also be looking inward in a more subjective way to give a complete evaluation.
I am 62 years old and have skin that tends to be dry. The issues of concern to me were firmness, dryness, and skin texture mostly. I have been very busy with kitty rescue and other demands so it is common to not pay enough attention to nourishing ones self. I have felt tired and stressed for a while. I live in Houston.
I was sent Dr Jules Nabet Zen Attitude Anti-Aging Cream ($86)
. The packaging is in a metal container, which seems to be aluminum. I hope that the bottle has a liner inside as we know aluminum is not so healthy. The design of the bottle I like very much. The top turns to allow the pump to be pushed and the lotion to flow out in just the right amount to apply to face and neck. Then simply turn the top back and it is closed. When I felt the need, I used two pumps as a special treat.
The cream is pleasant and fragrance very light which I appreciate. It felt nice and went directly into the skin. It is not a heavy or very rich feeling cream so I thought the results may not be enough to notice. But there are very clear results.
I have been very busy for sometime, have had more stress than usual and had actually been avoiding the mirrors for a while. So, I did not actually look very closely often as I began using the product.
After a little time of using it, I saw a friend that I had not seen in several months and she said, "you had your eyebrows done." I think she meant professionally arched. I had not, but when I came home, I took a close look in the mirror. My eyebrows were more arched and lifted noticeably. Not only that, the texture of my skin was very much more refined. The firmness and tone of my skin, MUCH improved. My skin seems more light and there is more definition in facial structure. I have been using it also for my eyes which still need something magical. The skin is more delicate and dry there. But the eye area is also more firm.
Normally, I used it morning and night and on some days I used it more frequently. I did notice the improvements were even more with more frequent use. Also, in the warmer months the results were more as the winter itself is more drying. If I was tired and skipped the applications, I noticed the difference. I looked even more tired and taxed from lack of use. When I applied, definitely the improvements were there.
Some of the ingredients I like and some concern me a little. I like using natural things as much as possible. It does have some chemicals.
For me, this was a real treat and great product and yes, I would highly recommend it. It is a true help for stressed skin.
When you do this one thing for yourself, it helps you align with being more conscious and doing more for yourself. It was a very uplifting experience for me.
