Gobble, gobble: A Big Fat HELL-TO-THE-NO to Turkey Neck
Ladies, ladies, ladies … I feel like I can’t say this enough. Start taking care of your neck early! Cause if you don’t, you just might develop a weird complex about your neck lines when you turn, oh, 32!
I dream of finding a neck cream that will turn back all the years of my lack of sunscreen wearing (kicking myself for not starting earlier!). So from here on out your girl is gonna be like I LOVE NY 2 when it comes to neck creams! I’m gonna find a neck cream that actually works … even if it kills my ass.
One neck cream that I’ve been using lately is Clinique’s Zero Gravity Repairwear Lift ($52.50). It’s an anti-aging moisturizer with retinol. There are three versions: oily/combination skin, dry/combination skin and very dry skin. I’ve been using the dry/combo skin version for the last month. I put it on my neck at night after toning, and again in the morning before sunscreen.
Big hearts for:
Product texture. I hate products that leave you with a sticky neck, ewwww! Thank goodness Zero Gravity Repairwear Lift has a nice texture that doesn’t leave a greasy, sticky film. It sinks in quickly, has a slightly medicinal scent, which I dig, and after application my neck feels nice and dry!
Moisturization properties. The texture of my neck feels softer and more supple since I started using this religiously.
Evenness in tone. I have noticed that there’s less contrast between the deeper neck lines and the rest of the skin on my neck, and the tone and texture of my skin is more consistent.
Little hearts for:
Price. I wish it were cheaper, but I gotta say that the jar is HUGE. You do get a lot for your money. And for the superior texture and the moisturizing properties, I’d pay for this over and over again.
Complete neck line eradication. I wonder sometimes if we’re set up to believe in skin care miracles because I’ve yet to find a neck cream that truly erases deep neck lines. However, I have to point out that even though the neck lines haven’t been thoroughly zapped away, I have noticed visible improvement in skin texture and tone.
You might heart it if:
– Your skin responds well to retinol products.
– Your neck lines aren’t too pronounced and you need a preventative product.
– You’re a fan of Clinique skin care products.
Are you a Clinique skin care girl? What do you recommend I try next?
I have today off so I’m going to do some cleaning, blogging and I’m going to take a much-delayed trip to the Chanel Counter. Will be back in a few hours with some looty-loot-loot!
