Boo hoo, I’m allergic! I was thrilled to be able to test the Mama Mio Love Your Life Lines Deep Line Reducer ($48) because its formulation sounds so up my alley – clean, high tech and well thought out. Unfortunately it turned my face all itchy and crinkly. Not a happy camper.

Of course this may not affect most users, so for what it’s worth here are my other impressions of Love Your Life Lines:

It’s a light cream scented with real lavender and formulated with modern goodies like TEGO Pep, herbs, vitamin C (in the form of tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate), and lots more. Its aloe vera base means it soaks right in – and I mean it’s gone! My skin drinks every last molecule of this.

Perhaps as a result I did not find it at all moisturizing, and even drying, but that might also be because my skin was reacting to it. Still, I think oily skin types will love it.

The packaging is beautiful, by the way, and the information it comes with is excellent. It’s an extremely well presented product, yet without the superficial flashiness of many mainstream brands. It’s professional, but approachable.

In short, I like it. It just doesn’t like me!
