For thirty-two years old, my skin is looking pretty good. So far everything is intact and thankfully my adult acne phase has passed (knocks on wood), but recently I’ve started to notice some crepey-ness and thinning of my skin, especially around my mouth. My laugh-lines seem deeper. The skin on my cheeks and around my eyes, thinner. I blame the sleepless nights of that first year postpartum and not to mention those long days sunbathing with baby oil (why didn’t anyone warn me?!), smoking cigarettes (guess it wasn’t so cool after all) and sleeping in my makeup (ugh). While thin crepey skin…

“It reeducates the muscles,” Valentina purred in her husky Russian accent as she pulled my cheek so high with a metal prong my chin started to tilt back towards her. She circled rhythmically along my lower cheek with the second prong. “This reeducation,” she continued, “teaches the muscles to lengthen (if contracted) or shorten (if sagging), and supports all of the secondary benefits seen from microcurrent.” Secondary benefits being: reduction in visible fine lines, lifting, improved firmness and tautness of skin.

The new Caudalie Vinoperfect Brightening Glycolic Night Cream is shockingly GOOD. After taking a months long hiatus from moisturizer, I decided to reenter the world of lotions and creams with this one by Caudalie and I’m so happy I did. After just a few nights of using this cream, my pigmentation has drastically faded, my overall skin looks brighter and the texture appears plumper. This morning my husband even looked at me and said – which he never says – “You are so beautiful, and your skin looks so pretty this morning.” I stared back at him in disbelief and said, “Is…
