I woke up one morning this summer with crow’s-feet, a railroad track for a forehead and the dreaded “puppet lines.”  I know these are expression lines; I’m just not sure I want to be that expressive! My rosacea was under control but my aging wasn’t, so I jumped at the chance to test Sevani’s Phyto-Peptide Firming Face Creme ($65).

My experience with Sevani began before I even received the product. After I submitted several questions to TIA, they arranged for the owner of Sevani to contact me and, to my amazement, she did! Sherylynn advised that exfoliating regularly was necessary and that I should not to expect overnight results.

Upon receipt of the Phyto-Peptide, I was delighted to see ingredients in plain English! The base is aloe vera with peptides, green tea extract, shea butter and “newer” ingredients, such as apple stem cells, hyaluronic extract and ergothermine from Shiitake mushrooms. It finishes with CoQ10 and an assortment of essential oils to make this a nature lover’s dream. The Sevani website provides a detailed list of each ingredient and its effects, and highlights the company’s commitment to thorough research on natural ingredients.

On first use, I was greeted by a light cream with a lovely citrus scent. The Phyto-Peptide absorbed beautifully and left my skin soft as cashmere. My skin is firmer and I haven’t gotten any breakouts (which I often get with new products). There is minimal reduction in the lines on my face but in all fairness I must have very recalcitrant wrinkles as I haven’t gotten discernible results from Marta’s favorites either. Additionally, I have a fear of exfoliating due to my rosacea and good exfoliation was essential to maximize results. I like Sevani’s quality and customer service so much I have ordered the Rapid Renewal product to give it a better go on exfoliation. I would definitely recommend this product line!

    It was asked of me to elaborate on the "need for exfoliation".
    As a skin specialist, we know that skin cells accumulate over time as a result of aging, environmental factors as well as other factors such as health and/or diet and more. When this accumulation of dead skin cells sit on the surface of the skin, efficacious ingredients in products do not have the ability to penetrate for maximum benefits. As a result, occasional exfoliation is essential to get the most out of many products, as Marta would agree. <a href="" rel="nofollow">Sevani's Rapid Renewal Resurfacing Creme (as sold here)</a> is an all-natural exfoliator that works by dissolving surface skin cells via all natural fruit acids and botanicals while also minimizing inflammation, evening skin tone and much more. It is a gentle alternative to scrubs for sensitive skin while also offering a renewed radiance...naturally. This product is typically recommended along with the phyto peptide firming face creme to compliment it so that you can get the best results possible! It truly makes a difference. Hope that helps some! Thank you.
