My mission in life since I turned 50 has been to keep everything from my neck up tight. I’m not here to discuss the lower half…
Interestingly enough, even though black women do not wrinkle as their fairer skin counterparts, (black don’t crack) our skin does show signs of aging with the loss of elasticity. We tend to have the propensity toward getting “jowls” and sagging skin. Gross.
So, I have tried a plethora of firming, lifting and tightening products. From drugstore to prestige firming creams, I have road tested my share. Over the past year and a half I have become fond of a few firming products that work.
And here are my top 5 favorites — in no particular order. Just know that they worked.
VichyNeovadiol GF Day Densifying Re-Sculpting care – Normal/Combination Skin
My skin was lifted and firmed. My nasal labial lines and jaw line were noticeably firmer. I love this product.
2. Neck Cream
Goldfaden Neck Renewal Cream
I am currently using this neck cream and love it. Not too emollient and my skin has that tight feel after application.
Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask
Truly an instant energizer. Trust.
DERMAdoctor Wrinkle Revenge Eye Balm
I love my eye area to remain moist and this eye cream does the trick.
Dr. Brandt Time Arrest Laser Tight
My best alternative to laser treatment. Instant firming.
