Tree Of Life
**** Please Note: I received this product for free in exchange for an honest review. The thoughts and opinions expressed here, are my own.
First, I have to apologize to Tree of Life, I have had some familial obligations to take care of and unfortunately have been unable to do as I should and post timely reviews. I've got several subscription boxes that I've not even posted about yet.
I try to honor my commitments in a timely manner, so I don't like when life gets in the way. It usually takes me no longer than a week to submit an honest review....
About the Product!!!!
I first had the pleasure and opportunity to try their Retinol Moisturizer. I wasn't even aware at the time that their were "night-time" moisturizers. Shows how little I knew. With the Retinol Moisturizer (and most all their products) they send little samples (a months' supply!) So, I had already had the luxury of trying out this fabulous Rejuvenating Cream!
GETTING OLD SUCKS!!!
I was one of those 20 year olds that still looked as if she were 14 or 15. I got carded all of the time, often to my deep frustration. (Oh, what I wouldn't give to be carded today).... One day it was like fifteen years had caught up to me. My skin started appearing hallow and dry patches started appearing. Lately, it seems as if my eyelids have suddenly formed little balloons right below the brow line... What! Where did that come from????
That's why I've really had to start not only taking care of my skin, but being proactive. I used to pass the skincare by, heading straight to the "Fun stuff". Now, I consider skincare a "fun thing", what my skin might have looked like had I started younger.
I honestly, have always considered skincare products a joke. Just some scheme in order to make us pay more money for products we don't need. However, I was wrong. I don't mind admitting when I was wrong, I actually take pride when I'm wrong, because it so rarely happens :)
I have noticed a huge difference since starting the rejuvenating cream. The obvious signs that you notice right away, is the super creamy texture to the moisturizer. It's so silky smooth. I actually mix a bit of it with the Retinol Moisturizer, which tends to be a bit dry on my skin.
One day I was passing by the mirror and caught a glimpse of myself and I honestly did a double take. My skin appeared brighter, not loose. It was like looking at me in rewind. Now, do I look like I'm twenty??? Absolutely not. But I look a heck of a lot better than I did prior to using it. I keep going back to Collagen. A year ago I didn't even realize we needed collagen, I thought that was the stuff they injected in those rich women that made them have funny smiles. I didn't know that our skin actually NEEDED collagen. However, I've since been educated! In case your like me and have NO clue why we need collagen: Collagen helps to keep your skin nice and tight (NO BALLOON EYELIDS) and when you get older your body stops producing collagen, making it ESSENTIAL for any skincare regime.
I still am no EXPERT, but I so would like to learn more about how to find the key to eternal youth, or at least to make my skin appear at least ten years younger. If after only a few weeks of a regular skincare regimen, I can only imagine if I continue to be consistent with my skincare how great my skin will appear!
Skin Regimen: We ALL need one! Even in your teens and twenties! I've even been teaching my son and my daughter to start now. After all, it's our job as parents to try to keep our kids from making the same mistakes we made.
Products generally work better when you combine them with complimentary products so that they can I guess kinda communicate and help each other. It's kinda like your car, your motor can be running, but if the transmission is missing, your not going nowhere fast.... This is what I'm currently doing for my skincare:
- CLEANSING: I use a cleansing oil, which is what I've found best for my dry skin.
- EYE CREAM
- Rejuvenating Cream!
- CLEANSING: Yes, AGAIN! LOL washing away impurities is essential
- EXFOLIATE: Twice a week I exfoliate to get rid of any dead skin
- EYE CREAM
- Retinol Moisturizer: As previously stated I mix a bit of my Rejuvenating cream
Whatever products you choose to use, it's important to be consistent. I've always struggled with consistency, my whole life. But consistency is important to get the best results from any skincare program you choose.
TREE OF LIFE CUSTOMER SERVICE:
Luckily, I haven't had to contact "Customer Service", although I have been in touch with the company. They have always been so nice and helpful. They are also lightening fast to respond to any question or concern I may have. I find this important information. I've dealt with companies that it's like breaking into an armored car to get through to a "real person". A lot of companies even respond with computer responses instead of an actual person writing you an email! (NOT talking about the standard, we'll get back to you)
This is my favorite product I've tried in awhile. It's a definite 5 star!! I was so thrilled that I was given the opportunity to review this product!
