Making Beauty Last


Hope everyone had a great weekend!  We enjoyed some family time and had a fun Sunday!

Have you ever had a nice compliment and then someone threw in a modifier?  "You're very successful, you've got style, you really take care of yourself, you look great... for your age!  Rewind!  WHAT?  This modifier does not need to be said.  Don't you agree?   A compliment is great, and everyone loves them... but forget the modifiers especially... for your age!!!!

Beauty is different to everyone and I although I don't like the term anti-aging, I do believe in making  beauty last.  I have said it before and will say it again but want to look and be my best at every age!!  With that said, whatever I can do to accomplish that goal, short of having "work" done, I will do it! 

I have always used sunscreen, applied moisturizers and utilized a good skincare routine.  In fact, I suggested my daughter start a similar routine as a teenager.   Being part Italian, I feel lucky to have good olive skin and a Mom that has very few wrinkles at the age of 83.  And until last November, have never used Retin-A or a Retinol product.  

ROC Skincare sent me some of their newest product, Retinol Correxion Max to try.  I'm happy to share  I saw improvements after one week in my crow's feet, forehead and under-eye wrinkles.   And now after using this product for the last month and a half, my results, continue to improve over time. These are the kind of results, I like to see.  


When I wrote to ROC to tell them how pleased I am with the results, they ended up sending me more product when I asked if they had if they had a product to help with eye puffiness. They sent Retinol Correxion Eye Cream, Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Serum and Deep Wrinkle Night Cream.  I have to say I was thrilled!  And am equally as pleased with the Eye Cream and the other products. 

My recommendation is to try any or all of these ROC Retinol products, especially the Retinol Correxion Max!  I hope you will be equally impressed with the results if you're on a similar journey...  to make beauty last!! 

Thank you to ROC Skincare for these wonderful products. And also for changing the conversation.  Love that you are heightening the awareness of misguided phrasing and negative implications of backhanded compliments.  Let's do embrace the aging process... on our own terms.  As always, all opinions are my own.  

As always, thank you reading and stopping by the blog.  My goal is to share authentic ageless style; fashion, beauty and relevant lifestyle information as we share this journey together!  I so appreciate you, my friends and readers!  XXOO
