If you're anything like me, you can't pass up a great skin care product. I learned at an early age to take care of my skin and although I don't always heed those wise words of my mother (read: wash my face each night before bed) I am a sucker for a good eye cream, tightening facial moisturizer and hydrating hand lotion.
Let's face it. Not only do I want younger looking skin but I'd like for some pretty little young hands to match. Nothing skeeves me out more than wrinkly, dark spot-laden old lady hands. Am I right?
Recently I had the chance to review some delicious beauty and skin care products from European skin care maven Estrea. As explained on their website, "since its proven success in the mid 90s, Estrea’s Skin Care System has been the number one choice of European women. Now, for the first time, the Estrea product line is available to the U.S. market, so that American women can experience the benefits of Estrea’s unique European Skin Care System."
Further, "Estrea’s twelve cleansing and moisturizing products for the face, hands, body and feet, bring together modern science and the restorative properties of nature to create a rejuvenating skin care regimen. The line’s most popular products, the fast-absorbing hand lotions and creams, have been proven to promote fingernail growth. The natural ingredients in Estrea include aloe vera, collagen, coffee, olive oil, citrus extracts, chestnut and Vitamins A, C, E and F."
I don't know about you, but I love when I can look at the ingredient list on a favorite beauty product and right away recognize and pronounce the product's key ingredients. With additives such as olive oil, coffee, chestnut, mint and citrus extract- Estrea's various lotions for both face and body have become a staple in both my morning and night time beauty regime.
My most favorite Estrea product is the Intensive Eye Care cream with collagen and vitamin E. Within seconds of dabbing it both beneath my eyes and above the crease, I can feel the eye cream begin to tighten the delicate skin around my eyes. With a light refreshing smell and non-greasy feel, it goes on easy and isn't something that I mind putting on my face before bed each night.
Something else that I just adore about this cream is that it isn't by any means runny. I like a good weight to my eye cream and although this cream isn't runny or watery, it goes on thick and absorbs perfectly.
Estrea's hydrating Body Lotion and tightening Face and Neck Cream have also become quick favorites of mine. While the skin on my pregnant belly grows tighter and tighter by the day, just a dime-size amount of the hydration body lotion keeps those annoying "itchies" at bay. Once again, the lotions go on clean and light and don't feel slimy or gross beneath my clothes.
The addition of caffeine as a main ingredient in Estrea's face and neck lotion is known to increase microcirculation, both protecting and nourishing the skin stressed by environmental damage such as the sun. It also serves as a great hydrating base applied before putting on the day's make up.
