Anastasia Does it Again!

Anastasia Soare has done it again. She has created two new products, and they are both beauty blog-worthy.

nu-brow.jpgThe first is called Nu-Brow. And guess what it does? It conditions your brows and helps get them growing faster. I know, we have all over-plucked or waxed off a little too much every now and then, now haven't we? And, just because we may have become masters at filling in the sparse spaces doesn't mean we have to stop there. Nu-Brow will help get them growing back to a beautifully arched brow in no time.

Nu Brow is a clear gel made up of a blend of top proteins and vitamins to help condition, and stimulate hair growth to the eyebrow area.

Anti-Aging Experiment: StriVectin-SD

StriVectin-SD. I am sure you have seen the commercials, the ads, and possibly even the knock-offs. It is everywhere. The "better than botox" cream.

We could not wait to use Stri-Vectin in our experiment. Here is who gave it a try: Teri - 30 something, Laurie - 40 something, Brandie - 50 something, and Rose - 60 something.

From the StriVectin website, a description of how StriVectin-SD works:

stri.jpg"StriVectin-SD includes a proprietary complex of skin firming agents, elasticizers, and skin hydrators… adding up to the most comprehensive topical formulation shown to effectively confront virtually every aspect of visible stretch mark reduction.
A groundbreaking series of studies has demonstrated, without a doubt, the amazing effectiveness of StriVectin-SD’s® functional isolates. After reviewing and verifying the clinical data, an incredible 93% of subjects saw a signifigant, visible reduction in the appearance of stretch marks. The unequivocal, verified results speak for themselves. But there’s more. Clinical observations further document the ability of StriVectin-SD’s independent isolates to dramatically improve the appearance of: Indented surfaces, Smooth surfaces, Skin firmness, Irregularities in skin discoloration."

Our thoughts while using:

  • The cream is heavy, a little goes a long way
  • The aromatic oils, mostly of peppermint, are very strong. Use caution around the eyes, nose, and lips.
  • No other moisturizer is needed when using this
  • Apply it sparingly twice a day
  • Use it wherever you want results.
