Sweetassgal is back in the real world after a full week of riding and roaring in the high desert. I’m talking 60 degrees in the day and 20 degrees at night and that’s without the wind chill! Yes it was cold and fierce and gave me the BEST conditions to try out skin products while zipping around the sand dunes by day and lazing by the fire at night. I had a great Thanksgiving with my family and an even better time riding with my daughter Samantha.Provost. She just amazes me. Seventeen years old and she’s got the fire of a young woman with the brains of her father. She took me over dunes and down steep hills with the ease of a pro and kept her cool the entire time. Me on the other hand…I screamed liked a little girl in ruffled underpants!
The most obvious choice for my sojourn to the sand was of course the Korres Night Cream with Quercetin and Oak Age Reversing Night Cream. Though my experimentation went beyond a night treatment. I used it at night after a long day of riding to refresh my parched skin and again in the morning to protect against the ravages of the day. It really had its work cut out for it as these are pretty harsh conditions and moisturizing potential was at its zenith. Every day I tapped into my little pot of Quercetin, Oak Extract, Mourera Fluviatilis, Myrtle Active Extract, Amaranth Lipids, Jojoba, Grape and Pomegranate oil infused moisturizer and set out to see what it would do.
First off I must say this is an intensely moisturizing cream and really puts the moisture back in your skin. You can feel it instantly quenching dry skin and plumping your dermis. It’s a nice feeling and one I look forward to at night! During the morning hours I noticed a softening of the fine lines I have around my eyes and the deeper one’s that appear next to my nose. The best part is I didn’t wake up with a morning oil slick. I know this is a face cream but I figured why stop there and I made sure to always hit my neck and decollette’. There wasn’t a marked change in the rings I have in my neck (which I hate!) but I didn’t expect it to because I think it will take an act of God, Congress AND Oprah to remove those buggers. But it is incredibly softening on my chest and does smooth the skin in that area. All in all I liked it a lot and would recommend this to ladies 30 and up for extra moisturizing, anti-age and anti-wrinkle properties. Though I believe it’s never too early to treat your skin well, I would tell our younger crowd to find a great lighter cream to keep your skin young and lovely and invest in a really good cream like this when your skin starts transitioning from well balanced and dewey to showing the beginning signs of aging and needing a little extra help in the moisturizing department. At 35 I’d happily spend $52 a jar to keep my skin looking the best it can and protect it from any future damage.
Korres is no slouch in the skincare department. Direct from their website they were established in 1996, out of Greece’s oldest homeopathic pharmacy, KORRES today offers advanced natural formulations that deliver maximum results. The active natural extracts used in the formulas ensure enhanced product performance, bringing you clinically proven, advanced skincare benefits, while also avoiding harmful synthetic compounds, to ensure maximum skin compatibility and environmentally- conscious products. I’m often drawn to their products in Sephora and the best part is, if you ask, they ALWAYS give you a generous sample to try. There is LOTS in this line to try, and I know that my friends all LOVE their pomegranate products (and we’re talking some picky bitches here!) so I’m confident to say that the Korres Night Cream with Quercetin and Oak Age Reversing Night Cream stacks up well with those beloved products.
Well folks in Megsmakeupland…it’s way past my bedtime and I’ve got a weeks worth of camping sleep to catch up on. I’m heading upstairs to do my nightly routine and finish off with my Korres night cream. Here’s praying to the Ghost of Wrinkles Past that a few more weeks of this lovely cream will banish them to the badlands where they belong. GLAM ON!!!
