I'm not a big fan of caviar, no matter how "exquisite" it is for the high-brow. But I just recently discovered that slathering it on my face brings me great pleasure. The paraben-free Pevonia is one of few brands that actually features the luxe hors d'oeuvre in their men specific line, Age-Defying Caviar Balm ($72), which is known to repair and promote anti-aging.

Pevonia is used in prestigious spas around the world, and with good reason: it's devotion to natural ingredients delivers great results and treatments, and their entire line can be used at home. I recently tried out the Pevonia Age-Defying Caviar Balm (reluctantly, I have to admit) and was truly impressed with the balm. It went on quite smooth and absorbed surprisingly quickly, with no "fishy" scent but a pleasant, refreshing aroma.

Caviar in skincare has always been popular (thanks, Angelina Jolie) as caviar extract is quite rich in vitamins A, D, B1 as well as amino acids, all of which deeply moisturize and intensify the process inside the skin cells. Caviar is chock full of other goodies, like nucleic acids and proteins, and its a source of marine DNA, a key element to skin cell regeneration. Thus, natural production of collagen works twice as fast, helping firm, hydrate, improve elasticity and (immediate results) offers a nice, restored gleam to your mug.

Age-Defying Caviar Balm is also packed with more great ingredients like marine collagen (which helps smooth wrinkles), marine elastin (for firming), vitamin C and alpha lipoic acid (anti-free radicals). There are few preservatives or unnecessary extras in the product, so it's definitely something worth spending your money on.
