I was in Nicaragua a couple of Thanksgivings ago and despite the party atmosphere (there were 10 of us staying at a friend’s newly refurbished house), I would get compliments about my skin every morning as we assembled – a little groggy and puffy eyed - for breakfast. Thanks were due entirely to the combination of Skin Nutrition Cell CPR and Osmosis Replenish. I dubbed them The Younger Skin Collection and with a great discount the duo became a runaway bestseller in the TIA shop. And now, after an absence of almost a year, The Younger Skin Collection is back and you can get these two fantastic products together for less than Cell CPR alone!

The Younger Skin Collection is $169 (Skin Nutrition Cell CPR is $179 alone, and then Osmosis Replenish is $40, so buying them together in this bundle garners a saving of almost 20%). These are really good products and they seem to play exceptionally well together.

Skin Nutrition Cell CPR (which some of you may already know from the Fall Discover Box) is a lovely product that has been formulated to meet the complex needs of the skin with 70 or so ingredients, almost all of which are potent actives. The key peptides are very complimentary to Osmosis Replenish. Hexanoyl dipeptide-3 (which is lecithin and norleucine Acetate) activates skin cell regeneration by stimulating the natural desquamation process of the skin, leading to a gentle peeling. Rh-oligopeptide-1 (Egf) is a recombitant human epidermal growth factor. There's also plenty of great botanicals.

Osmosis, I am pleased to say has brought back elements of the old Replenish formula that many of us loved so much, notably the antioxidant astaxanthin, and has also improved it with additional actives – such as R-lipoic acid and beta glucan. There are good botanicals here too, plus a promise to be kind to sensitive skins.
