At this juncture in my life, being closer to 60 years of age, than I am to 50, does not set well with me. I have accepted that gravity has taken its toll—in too many ways and too many places to mention. But, the one area that I refuse to let “fall” is my face. To that end, short of going under the knife, I utilize every beauty serum, cream and lotion I get my hand on to insure that it keep those horrible jowls at bay.
As a black woman, I know that my skin doesn’t wrinkle like my fairer sisters, but, I do have to worry about loss of elasticity, which equates to sagging skin. I refuse to go there. I want my skin to remain as tight and firm as long is humanly possible. So my anti-aging skin care regimen always includes a product that targets firming. That is why I am so very much in love with my Jurlique Purely Age-Defying Ultra Firm and Lift Cream.

Why I love Jurlique Purely Age-Defying Ultra Firm and Lift Cream:
Moisturizer is my friend. Factor in moisturizer that’s organic, lifting, firming and produces radiant skin, I’m all over it. Well, that’s what this Jurlique moisturizer does for me. So there you have four benefits right there, and any one of them of them is sufficient reason to use the Ultra Lift and Firm Cream.
But that’s not all. For me, when I apply a moisturizer, I want my skin to feel moist for more than an hour. For more than a couple hours. I want my moisturizer to do its job and keep my skin moist for the better part of the day (or night)—which this moisturizer does. I primarily use it at night because it does not contain an SPF, and when I wake up, my skin looks radiant and glowing.
During cooler months, I layer my sunscreen over this moisturizer (although experts will tell you to apply your sunscreen first, I want the benefits of the moisturizer to touch my skin first) and have the same lovely results of moist, radiant skin for hours.
I have found that I get away with much less makeup. I’m light on foundation anyway, most days consist of a CC Cream and concealer. But now, for bare minimal makeup, I am using my concealer, cream blush and a lippie, thanks to the great condition my skin is in from this lifting moisturizer.
The scent is soft and lovely and a little goes a very long way. So, for those afraid of the price point, know that it is worth every cent.
I really do love it. And I hated it went my jar hit “E.” But then, that’s what online shopping is for…
