Still no tracking for me. I changed my card cause I don’t even know if I want to deal with February or March. I am curious for April though haha. They say they will BILL us when our box SHIPS and that isn’t the case. I wouldn’t care if that were true but I was charged for 2 boxes before I ever even got the first one. And now will be charged a 3rd before I receive the 2nd (last time it took 14 days to get to me after I got the confirmation email)
Successful subscription-box companies, including Birchbox, Dollar Shave Club and Stitch Fix, have taken a “customer-first approach,” said Tien Tzuo, founder and CEO of Zuora, a software company specializing in subscription businesses, in an email. These companies have also created “fun, compelling subscription experiences that get smarter and smarter over time.” Part of that, Tzuo said, was the importance of a consumer brand knowing and understanding their customer.

Exercise is a natural way to reduce the signs of aging and can promote a youthful glow to the skin, but the area around your eyes will benefit from special facial exercises. Licensed aesthetician and author of The Yoga Facelift, Marie-Veronique Nadeau explains that yoga for the face involves slow exercises of the facial muscles to help tone and tighten them. (1) Using light pressure from your fingers as resistance, the exercises involve various facial expressions and pressure.
Mario Badescu’s Vital with Collagen and Elastin for Men is marketed specifically for men with dry skin which, let’s face it, makes sense since very few men are brought up to incorporate a moisturizer or mask routine into their daily lives. While this product is ideal for men with this drier skin type, it is unclear whether this cream was created with the combination or oily skin man in mind. Only time will tell whether this moisture-rich formula complements an oilier complexion.
I appreciate this article, but want to add one comment. I don’t understand why everyone is promoting bone broth these days. The collagen that it contains is made up of amino acids that are abundant in our food supply. So the intact collagen gets broken down into the amino acids that we already have a plethora of. So bone broth or collagen supplements don’t help us get more collagen into the skin, joints or anything. Would you please explain your reasoning?
“I swear by this moisturizer! It's packed with 2.5 percent retinol and hyaluronic acid and a ton of organic ingredients including aloe, sunflower oil, jojoba oil, green tea and dandelion that are packed with nutrients and antioxidants for intense hydration and nourishment. Retinol helps eliminate and reduce signs of aging, improve appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin texture, which is a must for flawless-looking skin. This is definitely a hidden gem!” said Heather Rohrer, PA-C, owner of Center for Aesthetic Medicine and Human Performance in Las Vegas.
Let’s get one myth out of the way: It really doesn’t hurt that much, especially when you’re the one in control. Dermatologists use something called a Dermapen for in-office treatments, and that’s a little more intense—bleeding is a common side effect. (That’s why they call it the “vampire” facial.) But a dermaroller is a little less hardcore, and you can press as hard as your pain threshold allows.
Exfoliating alpha and beta hydroxy acids meet nourishing passionfruit extract in this dual-purpose cream. At work in the moisturizing department? Hyaluronic acid. "Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, meaning it draws water to the skin," says Emily Arch, M.D., a dermatologist at Dermatology + Aesthetics in Chicago. It then holds onto that moisture instantly—yes, the effects are immediate—making skin look and feel more hydrated and plump. Gentle enough to use every night, it works equally well on normal, dry, oily, or combination skin types (since hyaluronic acid is deeply hydrating yet still lightweight enough that it won't feel greasy).
Need a morning pick-me-up? Try an eye cream with a cooling applicator for a refreshing wake up call, that can also help with your baggage. Rivera likes the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Triple Power™ Eye Treatment, which has a cooling applicator tip and is formulated with caffeine and helps reduce the look of under-eye bags. Use morning and night and gently massage the eye treatment around your eye area until it’s fully absorbed. Your skin may look brighter immediately, and your under-eye bags may look visibly reduced with continued use over time.
