Ever wonder how it is possible for an anti-aging cream to work for people of all ages? Time for a wake-up call! No such thing exists.

Jasmina Aganovic, a MIT-trained chemical and biological engineer, came up with a product that focuses on age specificity.

Stages of Beauty is a new skincare product that caters to the needs of women in their 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s. As the years go by, free radicals, stress, and UV rays continually victimize our skin; however, using your ordinary anti-aging cream won’t do the trick.

Ms. Aganovic delved deeper into researching the mystery behind achieving glowing beautiful skin. Turns out, as we age our skin becomes thinner. We live in constant exposure, and as we age, our skin matures and requires more attention.

Stages of Beauty offers specific ingredients for every product of every age group that leaves skin hydrated, firm, and reinforced.

What I really loved was the magical packaging! In a sleek black box lies Ms. Aganovic’s divine creation atop a bed of white shredded bits.

While the packaging was superb, I didn’t find the cream to be of the same caliber. It was definitely not my favorite, but I decided to keep my opinions to myself until I heard from the older generation in my household. When I did, I could only smile. The women in our family share everything. My grandma said the cream was not oily enough and her face was very dry. My mom said that her skin didn’t feel hydrated at all, and she didn’t like the consistency of the cream. There was one more sample for us to try, but we don’t have a 30 plus brigade of women to test it out, but based on us three, we didn’t love it.

 

What do I think about this product?

 

I hate it

Sorry Jasmina, women in this household are a tough crowd to please.

KmS Skincare

Every woman I know is looking for the miracle ointment, cream or pill to erase wrinkles and get back the face she had when she was twenty. While no such fountain-of-youth product has been put on sale for mass consumption, the cosmetic industry has really stepped up its production of anti-aging products.


I’ve done my fair share of sifting through all kinds of products; serums, creams, lotions, pills, sprays—it’s endless. But my favorite of the moment is KmS Mineral Essentials. A product that Kristi Shannon, member of Fabulously40.com came up with.


KmS also offers a mineral makeup line, but their product line of lotions, cleansers and creams are all natural, as most mineral cosmetic products are. It’s a small mom-and-pop kind of company that takes pride in customer satisfaction and producing a good product.


As every woman approaches her forties, we start to really notice the changes in our faces and all the parts we’d like to stretch back into place. While KmS is not the miracle cream we all dream of, it’s an excellent line of products that make my face feel refreshed and youthful. Check out http://kmsmineralessentials.com/default.aspx for more information and to see if it’s the right combination for you, too!

I love it

We reviewed Arbonne’s FC5 The Science of Beauty and f.y.i. Teen Speak Your Language. Wow were we impressed!


Arbonne’s exclusive fresh science FC5 hydrates, cleanses, exfoliates, and moisturizes! Plus the added benefit of UVA and UVB protection.


We tested out the spf lotion and face wash while on vacation. Each morning after waking up sun kissed our skin was slightly dry and needed moisturizer.This SPF was refreshing, light, and smelled delicious! Plus, we didn’t burn once- phew!

FC5 Pro’s:


FC5 Cream


- Botanically based on herbal and botanical principles.
- Hypoallergenic: Voluntary human testing meets hypoallergenic substantiation claim criteria.
- Never tested on animals or by-products
- Formulated without mineral oil
- Formulated without dyes or chemical fragrances: Dyes and fragrances are known irritants and can cause allergic reactions.


We also reviewed the f.y.i. teen body care products which we absolutely LOVED. I think this is a great product for every woman -teens and adults. The body better was soothing and worked as an aloe vera substitute (When my poor boyfriend burned his shoulders), and was the perfect touch after shaving our legs. I kept the perfume in my purse throughout the trip (to the airport, out to dinners, dancing, etc.), and found it very useful. The shower gel was a perfect way to end the day at the spa and lets be honest – I didn’t want to share!


My suggestion? Would make a perfect birthday or holiday gift, and even a stocking stuffer. Or you could treat yourself to relaxation at an affordable price!
