Good Skin Care – Better Late than Never
Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Crepe Erase. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
A long, long time ago and for a very brief period of time, I sold BeautiControl cosmetics. And while I didn’t do it long, one lesson stuck with me forever… do to your neck what you do to your face. What this means is that if you’re exfoliating and conditioning your face, treat your neck with the same love because the skin is essentially the same.
Like many of us, I didn’t always pay attention to that lesson or the “always wear sunscreen” and stay out of the sun lessons and now, here we are in our 40’s and 50’s and we’re starting to notice the effects of it.
What is Crepey Skin?
As the body slows down the production of elastin and collagen, the proteins that allow skin to stretch and contract, the skin begins to sag and wrinkle. For some people, aging skin manifests itself in deep lines and facial wrinkles. For others, smaller, more prolific, wrinkles will appear primarily on the face, neck, and hands, giving the skin a crepey appearance.
Sounds fabulous, doesn’t it?
I started to notice that the skin on my neck was losing some elasticity a couple of years ago when I returned from a girls weekend with the bestie. Don’t ask my how I noticed that a “waddle” was showing up, but sure enough.. it was there. Same with the lines on my chest. What used to be one of my ‘safe’ zones was flying straight into the danger zone and any doubt that I was middle-aged was quickly being erased.
So when I was asked to test out the skin care line from Crepe Erase, I knew the timing couldn’t be better! Crepe Erase helps transform aging skin on the neck, chest arms and legs-proven to reveal firmer, younger-looking skin. I decided that the two areas that I wanted to work on were my chest/cleavage area and my hands. To me the hands are another dead giveaway for your age.
Crepe Erase is a revolutionary 2-step system that uses TRUFirm to help visibly smooth, firm and lift dry, aging skin. I was sent the Exfoliating Body Polish and the Intensive Body Repair Treatment and the first thing I did when I got the product was to smell it.. smell is so important to many of us, isn’t it? It has a light, clean smell – nothing overwhelming. I’m one week in to using the product and while I can’t see any noticeable change yet, it’s a simple process that I’ve worked into my morning shower routine. All I have to do is exfoliate in the shower and then after I get out, I apply the cream.. super easy and the body cream literally lasts all day. I love it.
Check out the video below of my first application of the Crepe Erase program and then check back again in a few weeks when I follow up with my final thoughts on whether this is one to keep in the routine!
