Not even a full three months into “Twenty-Eleven” (as they say), and already there’s a list of the best of the best anti-aging products of the year. Kinda like an early Oscars.
And the winner goes to…. Well, there’s not just one – there’s like a dozen.
With some of these anti-agers being seriously cool and under a Jackson, the question then becomes:
“Are YOU using one of the best anti-aging products for 2011?….
well, WHY NOT?”
Check this clip: It’s a piece from The Today Show where Linda Wells, Editor-in-Chief from Allure Magazine, shares the love and spills 6 of the 12 best anti-aging products for 2011… (Allure does some serious research for this and give out “best” awards for beauty products too.)
1- Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System ( around $30 bucks)
We’ve all seen this in the aisles of Walgreens and CVS and with similar cleansing systems going for tons more, it kinda makes sense to snatch this one up. It cleanses and exfoliates your skin and also allows serums to penetrate into the skin deeper because it oh-so-slightly stretches those pores. Their advertising says it better: “helps maximize the immediate hydrating effectiveness of your anti-aging moisturizer.” Since it has no cords and it’s water resistant, it sounds like a great way to save time – do your facial cleansing in the shower!
2 – Rodan and Fields AMP MD system (around $200 bucks for all)
A roller with 200 micro-needles helps to deliver the products beneath the surface of your skin and creates collagen.
Your own little collagen factory! A cleanser mask, toner, a night cream, night serum capsules, sunscreen, your roller and little tablets to clean the roller are all part of the system. Watch for my full review on this soon!
3- Dermadoctor PhotoDynamic Therapy (around $85 bucks)
What in god’s creation is a “sunlight-activated lazer lotion”? Not totally sure, but it sounds RADICAL. This sunscreen converts the sun’s rays into visible red light, a proven energy source for eliciting anti-aging effects on the skin. That is, something bad gets converted to something good. SPF 30. It’s like solar panels for your face. Again, RAD.
4 – Priori Coffeeberry Natureceuticals 100% Perfecting Minerals (around $55 bucks)
This is a makeup powder that they say “protects your collagen” by protecting against both dangerous free radicals and the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays. SPF 25 and all natural. Know that OTHER mineral makeup line? Well, it doesn’t have Coffeeberry and it puts their minerals in those little plastic containers. Shame on them! Priori is uber-green — it has eco-friendly packaging made from biodegradable plant plastics—not from oil. And they say THAT means:
5 – Origins Plantscription Anti-aging Serum (around $55 bucks)
OF COURSE Origins is on the best list — it’s fierce! This serum features a plant-based product that duplicates the effects of retinals – leaving out any harsh irritations! Go plants! Get on in to your local Origins and ask for a sample. Tell them the Anti-Aging Analyst sent ya!
6 – Living Proof Full Thickening Mousse (around $20 bucks)
If you’re not using a thickening mousse invented by an MIT engineer, why bother? This mousse is designed to make thin, fine, flat hair look and feel thicker with no 80’s sticki-fest. Have not tried this yet, but HAIL YEA…WANT to! When I peeked at reviews, gals everywhere are “shouting it out” that this is the best thickening mousse they’ve ever used. Pump Up the Volume!

You’re Soooo Alluring,
