“I’m 60 years old and I got this sample of Firming Complex with an order I had made a week before. One of my lids has the tendency to droop more than the other. I used the Firming Complex all over my face but I also decided to try it on my upper lid. The next morning I noticed a total difference in my eyelid. I used it religiously for a very days until the sample was all gone and notice that my lid was actually lifting. I am completely sold on this product, I ordered two. It is a miracle worker.

The Firming Complex acted like a real peeling on me. The stains I had on the face had disappeared and my skin was feeling really smooth. I had never found a cream that could do that for me. I loved it!
Recommended Skin Types
Combination, Oily or Dry Skin experiencing loss of firmness and elasticity – commonly referred to as Chicken Skin (when skin is depressed with a finger tip, it does not spring back readily; or when skin is pulled lightly with fingers it doesn’t spring back readily).
Neck and chin tissues after the age of 25.
Apply to clean skin each morning over Daily C Serum or Glycolic Serum. Wear during the day under Sun Protection Intense or Palette or makeup for firming hydration. Excellent for an extra firming benefit to hands.
Firming acid extracted from Gotu Kola. As we age, the collagen in the skin decreases, leading to a potential decrease in firmness. Centella Asiatica has the ability to stimulate dermal fibroblasts and increase collagen production.
Increases the skin’s hydration level. As we age, the water-binding capacity of the skin decreases. This may lead to the appearance of lines and wrinkles that are otherwise concealed by healthy, “plump” skin. Polyphenolics from Echinacea Augustafolia can inhibit Hyaluronidase, the enzyme responsible for the degradation of Hyaluronic Acid, which retains high levels of water in the epidermis.
Encourages healthy elastin production. Elastin is the ingredient in skin that allows it to stretch, giving it elasticity. As we age elastin deteriorates, which may lead to sagging of the skin. Triterpenoids from Rosemary Officinalis have the ability to inhibit enzymes that destroy elastin for long-term skin firming benefits.
Jojoba Seed Oil
Increases the skin’s suppleness by 45% and maintains its effect for a minimum of eight hours. Inhibits bacteria growth and actually destroys staphylococcus and pseudomonas within one hour and fifteen minutes. Highly recommended for sensitive skin to soften and smooth. Jojoba Seed Oil controls flaking and dryness of the skin, as well as transpiration water loss (water loss through skin).
Shea Butter comes from the nut of the Shea tree, which grows in West Africa. The tree can grow up to six feet high and its trunk can reach 39 inches diameter. This exceptionally rich nut naturally contains fatty acids, phytosterol and unsaponifiables, which stimulate the skin’s own renewal process. Shea Butter has natural antioxidant properties due to its content in Tocopherols. Shea Butter also encourages cell regeneration and capillary circulation. This aids in the healing of skin blemishes and soothing of any skin irritation. It has both intense moisturizing benefits and significant restructuring effects on the epidermis and is especially effective to protect the skin during pregnancy against stretch marks. Like all vegetable fats, Shea Butter has soothing, moisturizing and protecting effects due to the presence of a sizable quantity of unsaponifiable matters and vitamins. Shea Butter also contains Cinnamic Acid which gives a natural protection against UV rays.
