Test, Test, Test!

Valentine’s Day.  That special day that says the beginning of ‘glo season’ is on the horizon.  And as soon as soon as I finish this post I am off to see Claudia for my air brush tan!  This month’s special color is .. what else?  Caramel, which goes so well with chocolate does it not?

Last week’s post has garnered some comments that I am really excited to address.  The first comment – why are there so many eye treatments in the Perricone line – it’s so confusing?  If you go to the Perricone MD site you will see that there are eight (8) choices for various eye conditions available.  That’s why I suggested getting samples from a Beauty Advisor when in need of a suggestion before you buy the product because all of these are in the mid-range price points.  You don’t want to buy all eight to test, right? Just get a few samples to test and then you will know which one works best for you.

Another example is the La Prairie line where there are 13 eye cream/serum choices in a wide range when it comes to the purchase points.  Is there a difference between a $380 serum and a $120?  Of course there is!  But! Is the difference worth the price for you?  It all depends on what you are looking for in the products, and how much you want to spent on your products. Again, test the products before you purchase.

A few month’s ago, I received a generous sample of La Prairie’s Liquid Lift for my neck.  It retails for over $500.  I was saddened when my sample was gone (and trust me I used every drop!) because I knew I could not afford that product in my daily skincare routine.  Again, I was going to test a couple of products.  Then within a week, I met Carrie Gross, wife of Dr. Dennis Gross, at a Master Class at Nordstrom.  She introduced me to his new neck cream with samples, and it has become one of my favorite products.   I mention Carrie, because she has agreed to be a guest writer on Wrinkle Me Not from time to time and she will be sharing more about this marvelous neck cream on next week’s blog post.  I am beyond thrilled to have her with us!

Enjoy Valentines Day with someone you love…
