Two Products That Changed My Skin!

Two Skincare Powerhouses!

A few months back i decided to add a couple of products to my skincare regimen.  After much research, i decided to add Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic + Retinol Fortifying Neck Emulsion to my everyday skincare routine for a variety of reasons.  First, i'm no spring chicken and am quite aware that the neck is one of the first things to go (weep).  Second, if you follow my VSG Journey you know that i've lost a lot of weight and one of my concerns was the possibility of hanging skin around my neck.  While i've used products in that area before, i didn't really stick to one and wasn't very consistent about maintaining a routine.  I've been using the Dr. Dennis Gross product for about three months now and have noticed an improvement in the texture of the skin under my chin and neck.  It's firmer and thankfully i have been able to avoid hanging skin due to major weight loss. I can honestly say that this will be a permanent fixture in my skincare routine!

A few weeks after purchasing the Dr. Dennis Gross Neck Emulsion, i realized that i didn't have any products with Vitamin C in my skincare.  I've used such products before and loved the results.  I remember a while back, while getting a facial, i was informed of the importance of vitamin C for cell renewal, brightening the skin and minimizing the signs of aging. I made my way over to Sephora and opted for the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum for a multitude of reasons.  This serum targets fine lines/wrinkles, uneven skin texture/dullness and elasticity.  It's formulated with a proprietary five-source vitamin C Complex to help brighten, boost collagen and minimize fine lines and wrinkles. It absorbs quickly into my skin which is wonderful when i'm pressed for time. I also love that it smells like oranges!  I follow it with my favorite moisturizer and i'm done.  I've owned this serum for a few months and loved what it's done to my skin!  In fact, i was thrilled to see another one of these in my Ole Henriksen VoxBox!  Seriously, that was one of the best VoxBoxes i've every received because his products are insanely good!

I honestly feel that these two products have tremendously impacted the overall look and feel of my skin. I've been using them for several months now and have had enough time to really notice a significant difference.  If you're looking for a good neck cream or simply want to incorporate a good Vitamin C serum into your skincare routine, look no further than these two amazing products both available at Sephora!
