April saw us getting ahead of Mother’s Day with some new collections. We’ve put together some of our favorite products, lowered the price and will take the hit on the shipping costs in a couple of specials for Mother’s Day.

I am calling this one the Truth In Aging Younger Skin Solution Collection. The combination of Osmosis Replenish and Skin Nutrition Cell CPR has been very good for my skin – people have noticed! Cell CPR is on the pricey side so I’ve been trying to figure out how to give my shoppers a good deal. Now, especially for Mother’s Day we have a limited number of Replenish and Cell CPR with 15% off plus free shipping. If you order before May 5th, I’ll send a personal Mother’s Day card with some usage tips to the recipient of your choice. So spoil yourself or any other deserving mom. To get the discount use the coupon code YOUNGERMOM.

The Truth In Aging Wide Eyed Collection brings together proven products for beautiful younger-looking eyes. Correct is my absolute favorite eye cream that will definitely diminish signs of aging (lines, crepiness and dark circles), the Reviva pads are great de-puffers and I actually grew some new lashes with Nutra-Lift’s Lash Renue. We still have a limited number of these bundles and we are giving you 20% off buying, plus free shipping. If you order before May 5th, I’ll send the mom of your choice (even if that’s you!) a personal Mother’s Day card and tips for using these products. To get the discount enter the coupon code EYEMOM.

KaplanMD’s Night Cream (normally $145) Microfoliant (normally $55) are available in an exclusive bundle for Truth In Aging for $160. This is serious skincare. The KaplanMD Microfoliant is not one of those namby-pamby, gently scrubby things. The crushed date seeds and jojoba beads will give your skin a good polishing. Great for exfoliating aging skin on the chest, neck and even knees. But as you rub, you also put back some goodness with KaplanMD’s signature botanicals: soy, grape and black cohosh. The night cream has power peptide Matrixyl 3000, which helps collagen production and there is also chaparral bush. Recent studies have found that its main component, nordihydroguaiaretic acid, is a free-radical scavenger and a protective agent against keratosis caused by exposure to UV rays.

For those of you who don’t know KaplanMD, this is a great introduction: The Day Cream SPF15 (normally $125) and the Night Cream (normally $145). That’s quite saving.

We finally got one of my favorite Your Best Face products into the shop. The nice people at YBF created a limited edition Restore Bundle especially for us that contains a full size (1 oz.) Restore and samples of Prep (microdermabrasian at home), Defend (keep breakouts at bay) and Correct (simply my favorite eye cream). All for $120 in the TIA. After a short leave of absence YBF’s Correct eye cream is back with new samples: a 6.5ml trial of Concentrate Antioxidants (a serum booster to add to you own creams, make your own concoctions or use with an LED device like baby Quasar, a sample of Defend (great for problem skin) and a full size Quench Lip Treatment. All for $150 in the TIA shop.

Nutra-Lift has put together a special Mother’s package for $68 that includes the Non-Soap cleanser that is more like a serum, a day cream with sun protection and a 20% vitamin C serum. Together they provide a no-nonsense foundation for improving and maintaining the complexion. The serum has heavy duty actives that, along with vitamin C, include the antioxidants CoQ10 and superoxide dismutase. L Carnitine has been shown by researchers to extend the life of skin cells and DMAE is thought to help lift those sagging parts. The day cream with sunscreen majors on botanical antioxidants such as rosehips and oregano and marine botanicals.

For me, Hair Signals Cream (in the TIA shop for $24) actually worked even better than Folligen at growing the thinning hair on my hairline! And we are not talking wispy, baby hair. But proper hair. Hair Signals has the same copper peptides active as Folligen, with a proven track record for growing hair (not to mention healing wounds). But it also has some other ingredients that appear to rally behind the copper peptides to tackle thinning, aging hair such as sawpalmetto.

Dermophisiologique Xomega has quickly become one of my favorite body lotions ($80 in the TIA shop). Bioage ($140) is billed as a face cream, but it seemed a little too rich and unctuous and then my esthetician Ildi Pekar mentioned that she has a client who as a dazzling decolette as a result of using it regularly. I promptly started using it on my neck and chest and now I have a dazzling decollette too. A nourishing cream rich in omegas.

Nurture My Body Eye Cream (just arrived in the TIA store at $24) creates the perfect base for makeup both under the eyes and over the eyelids and is a great value eye cream for 20-somethings and 30-somethings. But as Copley puts it: ” “The ultimate victory was when, after two entirely sleepless nights, I half-staggered into work  and Marta commented that my eyes looked amazingly awake.” NMB stuff is mostly organic and very well priced and we’ll be getting in to May with some more of their products so watch this space.
