egface.jpg Elizabeth Grant’s amazing skincare line is one of the best kept beauty secrets of the high fashion/celebrity/ supermodel world but it is about time someone spilled the beans. Her products are used by wealthy socialite moms such asKathy Hilton and Ivana Trump, glowing starlets like Anne Hathaway, Jessica Alba, Minnie Driver and Shannon Elizabeth, and even powerhouse designers such as Karl Lagerfeld and Roberto Cavalli. Runway models swear by their eye serums. But even with such a compelling cast of fans, that’s not what convinced me to write about the line. It was my own mother.
I was going to title this review Mommy and Me skincare. But it’s not about me and my daughter. It’s about me and my own mother. Because it is my mom, the chemist, the skeptic and the naturalist who ultimately convinced me how wonderful Elizabeth Grant Skincare products really are.
To give you a little background, my beautiful mom who is now in her late 70’s, worked for a major pharmacuetical company in her youth, developing and testing skincare products. She has a vast knowledge of common ingredients and is of the opinion that 90% of what is out there does more more harm than good, and much of it is absolute bunk. She has always been famous for her less is more approach to skincare and has had gorgeous skin well into her 70s. When people ask her what she uses, she always replies “nothing but water”!
Naturally I have inherited a healthy skepticism (if not her gorgeously flawless skin) and I too am sensitve and wary of products promising miracles. So when I tried the Elizabeth Grant line and found it to be rich, luxurious and (more surprisingly) effective at reducing my fine lines, I was intrigued. But I knew that in order to really recommend it (you rarely see me doing a skincare review!) I’d have to get my mom to try it as well. At first she protested. But recently she has been bothered by the lines around her mouth, and across her cheeks as time is finally catching up with her. So she thought she’d give the EG Biocolassis Advanced Cellular Regenerations Creams (night and day versions) a go. I half expected her to call me up a week later, smugly declaring it was more bunk, and that her skin was broken out from it.
But instead she called me up and asked me repeatedly where I got the stuff, and what the heck was in it, because a: her skin was not in the least irritated from it, and
b: quite noticeably less wrinkled.
It wasn’t her imagination either. Everyone was noticing it. My dad, my sister in law, even my own husband. The network of fine lines was fading and her face looked so much fresher and younger. She did the unthinkable. She used up the entire jar of both products. It was a lifetime first for her to use something up.
The reason I am writing mostly about my mom in my review is that with her, the results of the EG skincare line were most dramatic and eye opening for me. I found the line to be gentle enough for my sensitive skin, and to leave it smooth and glowing but in all honesty I still have time somehwhat on my side. So really, 90% of my approval rating comes from a skincare line simply making the most of/preserving what I have, without causing irritation and outbreak. It’s a far easier task than what this line has done for my mother’s skin! So while I can appreciate the smoothing properties and way Elizabeth Grant items leave my sensitive (and pregnant) skin glowing – I can appreciate it so much more seeing the amazing transformative effect her products have had on my Mom’s skin. Her biggest worry now is that she is completely addicted to the stuff!
egskincare.jpgIf the products can work so well on skin that already has significant signs of damage, I can only help that it will help as effectively to treat and prevent damage in the future for me as well. In the meantime, there are a bunch of Elizabeth Grant products that are working especially well for me in my tired mommy state that I would recommend to anyone wanting to give them a try. First – I’ve taken a tip from supermodels and keep their Advanced Eye Renewal Serum on my vanity in order to keep my eyes from showing the telltale signs of sleepless mommy nights. I also love their lip softening lip gloss under any lipstick, and their collagen. And their Jojoba and Eucalyptus footcare products are an absolute treat for tired mommy feet. It’s nice to know that this line includes products that pamper your skin from head to toe – not just your face!
Check out the Elizabeth Grant Skincare Products on the Elizabeth Grant site. Whatever ails your skin, this is a line that likely has a solution worth trying. And if you don’t believe me, and the celebs, you can ask my mom!
