And you can find this little anti-aging product at Kohl's department stores. Yes, Kohl's.
What's even more intriguing, is that Vitamin C Power Brightening Cream SPF 25 ($32.50) is put out under the label, Grassroots Research Labs. And this company is actually owned by cosmetic giant, Estee Lauder. The Grassroots line is sold exclusively at Kohl's.
And we have always associated Estee Lauder with beautiful makeup and skin care.
Get your dose of Vitamin C in this little jar, because your skin will really thank you for it. And if you are a dry-skinned beauty, this product is perfect for you, especially in these searing hot summer days. Trust us, this is a very moisturous cream.
Here is how the Grassroots folks at Kohl's describe their Vitamin C Power Brightening Cream SPF 25:This rich hydrating cream brightens skin and helps reduce discolorations and uneven skin tone while protecting skin from the sun’s harmful rays, environmental aggressors and damaging pollution, with a triple vitamin cocktail and SPF 25.
Vitamin C, referred to by scientists as a powerful anti-aging vitamin, is known for its remarkable ability to help visibly brighten and even out skin tone while helping skin defend itself against future damage. 1.7-oz.

The Food & Drug Administration recently gave the green light to this newest wrinkle relaxer Botox rival. The thumbs-up was issued in April.
So, why is this botulinum toxin better than Botox?
According to the research we uncovered, Dysport "may last up to 8 months compared to Botox, which typically lasts 4-6 months." Now that's excellent news. And this longer-lasting Botox is said to work faster than regular Botox and be about 25% cheaper in price.
Hmmm. Sounds terrific, and yet why haven't we been hearing more amazing stories about Dysport?
We haven't got the answer to that yet, but it should be noted, that the skill of your dermatologist and/or plastic surgeon could make the difference in how Dysport is even better than Botox. We saw this beauty nugget at WorldHealth.net. And one of the first doctors to try Dysport on his patients was Oculopastic surgeon Joseph Eviatar, M.D., of New York City:
"I am very excited about the introduction of Dysport as it possesses several unique properties that set it apart from Botox Cosmetic," says Dr. Eviatar. "Since Dysport does act quicker and last longer, it is more important than ever to have an experienced aesthetic physician administering the injection. The doctor should be very experienced about facial anatomy and dilution procedures. It is exciting to be able to offer patients an alternative to Botox Cosmetic, especially those patients for whom Botox does not last."
Sure, the sting of the Botox needle is still there. But while Botox needs about 7-10 days to work, Dysport appears to do its magical smoothing stuff in 2-3 days.
Dysport sounds quite amazing. We will be watching for more beauty buzz on this newest wrinkle relaxer. We're surprised it hasn't been a top beauty story as of late, especially since more and more baby boomers are out looking for employment and trying to look youthful against the much younger competition bombarding places with resumes.

"Look 5 years younger in 14 days, or your money back!"
Okay, Avon, that's where we get disappointed. Sure, we adore the money back guarantee. But let's be honest.......there is no face cream on the planet that can knock off 5 years and make you look younger in 14 days.
And at the moment, this new Anew Avon beauty treatment is on sale for $29.00. A savings of $5.00.
So what's in this pretty, gold jar of youth cream magic?
According to the Avon Anew creators, these 2 ingredients make it happen:
Transcend time with a rare skin-strengthening fusion of patented Pro-Sirtuin TX and Gold Polypeptide technologies.
1.7 fl.oz.Pro-Sirtuin TX Technology is formulated to stimulate sirtuin youth proteins for healthier cells, and activate remodeling proteins to help restructure and strengthen skin.
Gold Polypeptide Complex is engineered to help replenish skin's moisture reserves and maintain its youthful structure.
If you visit the Avon website and look at the customer reviews, so far, women really like this new Anew Ultimate Night Gold Emulsion. "13 of 14 (93%) customers would recommend this product to a friend."
So there you have it. The Avon Anew beauty products are very popular around the world. The reviews we read, talked about firmer skin, complexion soft as silk, etc.
We certainly like the price on this new Anew Avon Face Cream. It lets all of us sample the goods. What we don't like, is that Avon is getting away with a pretty big claim of subtracting 5 years off your life. We wish it were that easy.
