this past fall the nice people at apothica sent me a jar of vichy liftactiv cxp day cream to try out and review. i was super excited as i had just run out of my current lotion and was on the hunt for a new product.
the vichy liftactiv cxp day cream was different then my other moisturizers as the product was thicker and richer in texture. a little went a long way and it left my face feeling moisturized and hydrated in a way it had never felt before.
the product promised:
"Vichy LiftActiv CXP Day For Normal/Combination Skin
Anti-Wrinkle & Firming is a breakthrough anti-wrinkle and firming formula
that continuously releases pure Vitamin C into the skin for 24Hr to stimulate
the production of collagen and elastin fibers for firmer, smoother,
i will say that my skin most definitely felt smoother. as for younger-looking or firmer i can't really confirm, but what i enjoyed the most was how hydrated my face felt. during winter months my skin can get a little flaky or dry and i am happy to report not once did i have a flake or dry patch while using this product.
while i enjoyed this product a lot, my only complaint was it is heavily scented. in fact when i mentioned the name "vichy" to a girlfriend of mine the first thing out of her mouth was, "i really liked the product, but it is very perfume-y". luckily for me, i did not find the scent offensive but people with sensitive noses or skin may want to be weary of this product.
i was so pleased with this product that i am currently looking into purchasing the vichy neovadiol gf night densifying re-sculpting care cream. as we head into warmer weather i am looking to move to a lighter moisturizer, but come fall/winter 2013 this product may very well end up in my medicine cabinet again!

i heard "trojans" back in the end of november and couldn't wait to share it with y'all, but then holiday music picks and parties delayed it.
i am loving this atlas genius song so much. i love the melody and the lightness of it. i also love that they are touring with imagine dragons and i think i may just have to purchase a ticket to see them when they are here in l.a. in march.
how are we all feeling about the peplum trend? still a fan or want to move on?
me personally, still a fan. which is why i encourage all of you that do like the peplum trend to order this knit peplum top from forever 21. it's under $15 and i have already received no joke 10 compliments on it 3 of which were from complete strangers.
