As I celebrate my DD’s 3rd birthday, I can’t help but marvel at how fast time has flown. It seems like only yesterday, I met her father and began our beautiful courtship. Now 15 years later, my youngest child of three is turning three, summer is over and school is about to start.
No matter how hard we try, there is no pause or rewind button on time. It merely progresses in a forward direction with no concept of the effects it has on us. I look in the mirror and see a mother of three. A few extra pounds (aka baby weight…lol) as a result of three healthy pregnancies, bags under my eyes from nightmare slaying and all night crib parties, and laugh lines from the baby’s firsts and the joy my children bring me on a daily basis. What I also see is the ill effects of time. As time passes, the muscles in our face lose their tone and skin begins to thin causing our skin to show its age.
Today there are many different anti-aging face products on the market. Thanks to advances in science’s understanding of the aging process on skin, these products are successful at stopping and reversing the effects of time. One of my favourite anti-aging serums on the market is Time in a bottle by Philosophy. This anti-aging serum attacks the aging process of your skin in a two way power punch. It begins by defying the aging process causing your skin to look brighter, smoother and healthier. Its unique formula also provides a protective layer that supports healthy skin function and promotes natural renewal. The addition of the potent vitamin C8 activator protects your skin from future environmental aggressor and damage.
Time in a bottle by Philosophy comes in to different formulas:
1.Time in a bottle daily age-defying serum ($79/40 ml/1.3 fl oz) is available now at philosophy.com and sephora; and nationwide in all philosophy retailers beginning January 2014.
2. Time in a bottle for eyes daily age-defying eye serum ($72/15ml) will make its debut on philosophy.com and at all philosophy retailers in April 2014.
My DD3 may be a girly girl, but this Mommy is far from one. A splash of water, the nearest soap and a pat dry has been my skin care routine as long as I can remember. With the sudden appearance of fine lines and dull complexion, its time for me to rethink it. Being a working Mommy of three, I don’t have the time or patience for an elaborate program. That’s why I love Time in bottle. Wash, apply Time in a bottle by Philosophy serum and moisturize. A simple 2 minute extension to my normal skin care routine and the benefits are astonishing!
I have been using Time in a bottle by Philosophy day and night for the past few weeks and I must say I love it. I have extremely sensitive skin and tend to breakout immediately with creamy products. Not with Time in a bottle by Philosophy! The light, silky application felt cool and tingly and within a few days I began to notice a brightening of my skin and an overall smoothing of my appearance. I love that it is scent free and it doesn’t feel like I have anything on my skin.
The eye serum is amazing! Powered with an exclusive DNA renewal complex, it helps with my skin’s natural renewal and protection process. The serum helps lessen signs of fatigue from sleepless nights with kids in my bed, dark circles and puffiness are lessened and the fine lines not as noticeable.
Once the serum has soaked into my skin, it feels smooth and soft. At this point, I don’t even need to add an additional moisturizer. With success in the first few weeks, I can’t wait to see my skin after the recommended 8 weeks of use!
This back to school season, spend an extra few minutes on your skin by incorporating Time in a bottle by Philosophy into your routine. Not only will your skin look brighter and help fade those fine lines and wrinkles, but it will protect you from any further damage! Healthy skin makes you look good and feel great. As my DH always says, ‘a happy mom makes a happy family!’
