Kiehl's Powerful Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate + Eye-Brightening Concentrate.

You've heard about many topicals when it comes to your anti-aging skincare and it can be confusing. Figuring out the most effective topicals to incorporate into your routine is a task when there are so many brands coming at you with "this is best", "this is better", etc,. I think we all know about the importance of retinol, glycolic and that we need to use sunscreen everyday. But there is another very important ingredient that is essential for younger looking skin and that i Vitamin C. Vitamin C has proven efficacy at treating fine line and winkles.

I've used a few Vitamin C products in the past (Paula's Choice and SkinCeuticals) and make sure to use one daily. Kiehl's has a very popular product (and just sold it's 3 millionth bottle of this award winning formula) called Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate. Even more exciting, they also have Kiehl's Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Eye-Brightening Concentrate that they just launched.

Kiehl's Powerful Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate + Eye-Brightening Concentrate

Kiehl's Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate contains pure Vitamin C, which is L-Ascorbic Acid (look for that in the ingredient list). When applied topically, the formula helps skin recover from some of the more visible signs of skin aging. Vitamin C works to improve skins radiance and diminished the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Kiehl's Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Eye-Brightening Concentrate takes that same Vitamin C and pairs it with a few different ingredients to make it effective, yet gentle enough for the delicate eye area. Here, Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Eye-Brightening Concentrate uses the L-Ascorbic Acid to diminish the appearance of fine line and crow's feet and adds in Haloxyl™ to reduce inflammation and darkness and Lauroyl Lysine that offers a natural instant blurring effect.

I recently incorporated both the Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate and Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Eye-Brightening Concentrate products into my anti-aging routine and I am loving the results. In just over two weeks, I am seeing a noticeable improvement in my skins overall radiance; my skin is definitely more even in tone and texture. The skin on my neck is softer and more smooth - more so than it has been in years. The area around my eyes is brighter and looks more firm. I swear the fine lines around my eyes are improving already - especially the area beneath my eyes where nothing had been able to work before. I will be adding the Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Eye-Brightening Concentrate to my routine on a permanent basis.

L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Lacque & Le Matte.

I have a problem. I am a lip product junkie. I don't think I can leave a store, whether it be a drugstore, mass retailer (Target, Walmart, etc.) or department store without picking up a new lippie. I even leave the Dollar Store with a new lip balm every time I head in there too. I just cannot resist a beautiful lipcolor. It literally changes the way a woman looks and feels about herself. When I saw the new L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Lacque & Le Matte I knew I would be looking for more of these beauties at the drugstore because they are very unique. In a lip pen form in both matte and glow formulas, these highly pigmented shades are irresistible.

L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Lacque & Le Matte

Before I get into each of the new L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche formulas, I just need to say how easy these sleek lip pens are to use. The pens are portable and twist up with a sharpened tip. But they don't apply like a "pencil", they are more pen-like as these are creamy and easy to apply. That's because the formulas are infused with Argan Oil and Safflower Seed Oil for a soft and smoothing appearance delivering deep hydration. In addition to that, nourishing oils, La Laque and La Matte also contains a blend of Vitamin E and antioxidants so lips are healing while wearing. That is always a good thing. And color payoff is incredible with both formulas - long wearing too.

L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Lacque

La Lacque is a super smooth high-gloss finish lip color. Like I said, it applies easily and is super unexpected right out of the pen applicator. I get six plus hours of wear of high shine color. There are five shades of La Lacque.

  • Choco-Lacque
  • Lacque-y You
  • Lacque-y Charm
  • Lacquerized
  • Lacque and Roll

L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Le Matte

Le Matte is somewhat more pigmented with a comfortable, creamy feel. This is full on color with a matte finish, but not dry, matte. The colors are beautiful and it's very long-wearing. The full on color lasts about 6 hours with some fading but there is some color left behind that lasts most of the day. There are also five shades of Le Matte.
