The Hands of Time …… {+ An Extra}

I think it’s in our human nature to wish we coProcessed with VSCOcamuld turn back the hands of time.

Many want to go back and right a wrong, others spend more time with a loved one, and others want to take a different path in life. My post today is about turning back the hands of time for a more vain reason – wrinkles.

Yes, I said that dreaded ‘W’ word that puts fear in the hearts of women everywhere. Let’s be honest here ladies, we probably don’t mind a few laugh lines but don’t want all the other lines that find their way onto our faces. Men y’all probably don’t want wrinkles either, but then they’re just called character lines on y’all.

Those wrinkles just seem to appear out of thin air. You go to bed with a few laugh lines. The next morning when you look in the mirror you’d swear someone has taped somebody else's photo there. You couldn’t have that many wrinkles.

While plastic surgery will make those wrinkles disappear, that’s not an option a lot of us want to use. For me, I’ve found a fascinating product that helps reduce those lines in under an hour, can be done at home and doesn’t cost and arm and a leg.

I recently had the opportunity to try NU SKIN’S FACE LIFT WITH ACTIVATOR. This works immediately to temporarily lift and tighten your face and neck to give you the look of a firmer, more youthful appearance.

I’m sharing some before and after photos with you even though the photos don’t clearly show the results I experienced.

Before I tell you how I used the product, let me tell you my thoughts on the results. I’ll be the first one to tell you my neck is very wrinkled so I honestly wasn’t expecting to see any results. I was wrong. The lines didn’t appear as deep and even a few seemed to disappear. No, it didn’t make my neck wrinkle free, but I don't think any product can do that. It did make my neck feel smoother and firmer.

The best results I saw was on my face. Here my skin tightened and smoothed more of the wrinkles away.

Was I pleased with my results? YES, I was most pleased. The added bonus was the way my skin felt afterwards. It felt smoother, tighter and fresher even if it didn't change drastically. It was well worth the experience and I plan to do it again from time to time.

I mixed the items as instructed and brushed it on my face and neck. You can start to feel it dry almost immediately. It will feel a bit strange as it dries, but if you’ve used a cleansing mask before you’ll understand. It stays on for 30 minutes and comes off easy with warm water. The redness that appears will quickly disappear.

While we can’t stop time, we can slow down its effect on us a bit. Give FACE LIFT WITH ACTIVATOR a try and let me know what you think.

  1. Wrinkles are the least of my problems. If I started trying to deal with all of them, I wouldn't get anything else done ever.
    I am thrilled to hear of a product that receives a positive endorsement though. And, is it just here that the woman advertising such products usually look to be in their (very) early thirties?

  2. Hi Mason - I won't use anything ... though I could do with acquiring more hair - it's very thin .. but that's left too! I really don't like over-made up faces ... I think healthy lifestyle is the best - cheers Hilary

  3. that is quite the change on the cheeks!
    I try to use facial cream every day and people usually think I'm younger than I really am :) But even if you eat healthy and use creams, worrisome life can ruin it all :(

  4. Thanks for sharing your experience, Mason. It's always good to know how these products actually work. Sometimes its hard to sort out the hype from the truth if you just listen to their advertisers. Nice to get a user's perspective.

  5. No idea what my wife uses, but she has really no wrinkles and she's fifty. Also helped she wasn't a sun worshipper. So many women around here are really wrinkled on the neck and chest from too many hours at the beach.

  6. So far I don't have too many wrinkles, but they're coming! I'm 45. I just use Cetaphil moisturizer, but I need something stronger at night. I need to try that!


I'd love to hear your thoughts on today's post. Thanks for dropping by.
