Skin Candy: More Delicious Elizabeth Grant (review)

Lately, I've been trying so much awesome stuff and hearing about so many new launches that it's making me a little dizzy. There's just so much! Couldn't decide if I was a deer in the headlights or a kid in a candy store.

Finally decided: kid…store.

One of the yummiest looking candy stores I've come across is Elizabeth Grant. Super luxurious skincare (as well as beauty and fragrance). A while back I reviewed some items from the Caviar line (loved!), and today I'm going to share about some of her Biocollasis™ items.

Biocollasis™ Gold Essence

Blurb: This luxurious essence is so powerful it should come with a magic wand! With unprecedented concentrations of gold, peptides, precious minerals and Torricelumn™, Biocollasis™ Gold Essence is Elizabeth Grant's purest and most potent concentrate to restore the skin's youthful vitality and luminosity. Biocollasis™ technology works deep within the epidermal layer to give your skin a smoothed, firmed and refreshed appearance. Experience Biocollasis™ Gold Essence and experience ageless beauty. Gold: Since the time of Cleopatra, and reportedly long before, gold has been used in medicinal remedies, therapeutic salves and cosmetic preparations. Peptides: regenerate the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Minerals - to improve cellular protection against the harmful effects of the environment.

Biocollasis™ Complex Advanced Cellular Age Defense Eye Cream

Blurb: A dual-performance concentrate for the delicate eye area. Perfectly balanced to counteract the natural aging process by creating a defense against skin aging at the epidermal cellular level. The eye area is nurtured, protected and defended. Innovative technology instantly brightens the look of dark circles, delivers optimal hydration and plumps the appearance of the skin. The eye area appears firmed, lifted and smoother as the skin regains its youthful resilience.

Biocollasis™ Complex Advanced Cellular Age Defense Day Cream

Blurb: A light weight, gentle, nutrient-rich moisturizer. Intensive moisturizing properties deeply hydrate all day long, keeping the skin looking and feeling smooth and supple. Enriched with a luxurious saturation of natural peptides, proteins and precious extracts from nature to improve the skin's cellular matrix promoting a flawless appearance. Technology: Torricelumn™ – Elizabeth Grant's superior moisturizing compound. Glycine Soya – rich in glycol proteins, it helps to reinforce skin tone and elasticity. Ceramides – help to reinforce the skin's natural protective barrier, improve long-term hydration and protect the skin from external influences. Sephora Extract and Kiwi Fruit Water – help to reduce skin pigmentation and even out skin tone. Clinical studies: 88% skin felt firmer, 82% improved elasticity, 91% wrinkle reduction.

I feel so unbelievably pampered when I use anything by Elizabeth Grant. The packaging is luxurious, and the feel of her creams and serums is out-of-this-world rich and velvety. All three products above feature the proprietary Torricelumn moisturizing compound and are packed with skin loving nutrients.

The serum has the highest concentration of the Biocollasis compound. I loved the way this felt (and the way it disappeared immediately into my skin). I looked a little smoother and my pores were less "pronounced." The eye cream is also fabulous. Rich and smooth; but still sinks in quickly and hydrates all day. I also noticed some de-puffing (very welcome now that all this August allergy business is starting up). The day moisturizer is absolutely heavenly. Since I have to be careful about breakouts, I probably can't use this all the time. But if that's not an issue for you, you will love using this. It feels amazing: velvety and hydrating as it goes on, then absorbing immediately. My makeup glided on over it and my skin was soft all day.

Haven't tried any of the Beauty and Fragrance yet; but I'm betting they're equally pampering and awesome. And there really is a huge selection: makeup, mud masks, bath oils, glosses…CANDY!

Happy Tuesday!
