Why I won't be needing botox.... (yet).

Press Sample

Botox. Why the heck am I talking about botox? I'm only 27, but I have a long history of baking away in the scorching Australian sun. Right under that hole in the ozone, you know the one, making the Aussie sun a bajillion times stronger than here in the US.

Oh hai...

This picture was taken on the Gold Coast, 8 years ago, the height of my sunbaking days... The beach was my second home - And yes, I had cheesily edited it so it looks like a still from a bad soap opera. That was back when I was still learning how to use photoshop, okay? Okay. - So while I was doing all that baking away, do you think I used sunscreen? Ohhh nooo, I was trying to get as tan as I could be. You know that girl out at the peak of the day, slathering coconut oil all over herself? Yeah, that was me. And like most sun happy idiots, the result is... dun dun dun! Sun damage!

And now, I obsess over these two annoying fine lines in my forehead... put there no doubt, by the misuse of coconut oil and not enough hydration over the years. So, this is when you turn to botox, right?



From Reviva Labs website:
"Revolutionary" Swiss Apple Stem Cell Booster Serum. (Helps combat skin aging.) A.M. and P.M. apply stem cell serum before your day or night cream to boost effects of your regular cream or serum as you add dramatic anti-wrinkle and texturizing benefits. In our advanced formula, we have blended in select organic botanicals that provide additional anti-aging benefits.

Special Benefits:

  1. Swiss apple stem cells help revive skins own dormant stem cells and can help bring new life and energy to the epidermis. Recharging epidermal cells with our stem cell serum makes skin more responsive to the day or night cream applied over our serum. Overall results are accelerated and remarkably improved.
  2. Swiss research showed a major decrease in appearance of lines and wrinkles in 30 days. The study with volunteers aged 37 to 64 determined a significant decrease in crows feet wrinkle depth for 100% of the participants.
Our advanced formulation also features select organic botanicals that provide additional texturizing and anti-aging benefits. All skin types can improve from the properties of the Swiss apple stem cells. But mature skin, whose cells have been most affected by normal aging, sun and pollution damage, will benefit most.

Yeah. Stem Cells from apples. Swiss apples. If you ask me why Swiss apples, I couldn't tell you... maybe they're at a higher altitude, so the air is better? Don't ask me, I'm not a cosmetologist or a farmer or wtf-ever. All I know is that they do good things to my face.

The Stem Cell Booster Serum feels nice and hydrating when it goes on, and absorbs quickly into my skin. It has anti-aging properties on it's own, but what it's also supposed to do is boost the effects of your other face creams, so I have been using it under my L'Oreal Youth Code day lotion. From the first use, I definitely felt that my skin was much smoother and softer. Over time, I have also noticed a slight reduction in the appearance of those two pesky lines on my forehead and I've only been using the serum for about 3 weeks, so I'm looking forward to even more results. It's not an instant, dramatic difference, but it is certainly working much better than I expected (since I am always skeptical of the claims on anti-aging products).

I am very happy with how my skin looks and feels using the Stem Cell Booster Serum (find it here) and it is a product that I would purchase once it has run out. At the moment it is $30, which seems expensive for 1oz of product, but I think skincare is something we should invest in and if it works then it's worth it. I mean, botox is like 10x that amount. Plus the needles. Don't forget the needles o_o I think I'll be fine using this serum to make my lines disappear, and leave the frozen foreheads to all those Real Housewives of OC.
