My Thoughts

I recently received the From the Lab November Box.

 I have been testing it out for nearly a month now, and am happy to announce my overall satisfaction. I loved both of the products that I received. My skin is noticeably softer, smoother, and has an overall better glow about it.

 I was sent:
Face Cream No.590 and Face Serum No.591

Face Cream No. 590
For only a few weeks each spring, delicate Yarsagumba mushrooms break through the snow-hardened ground of the Himalayas. Though small, these mushrooms have been growing underground for years by the time they emerge into the thin, icy air. The rare mushroom lives off of a caterpillar, eventually fossilizing the insect and sprouting from the ground. It is then hand-harvested, carefully cleaned, and sold by the carat at prices that can exceed the cost of gold.

Rich in active components such as cordycepin, amino acids, and minerals, the Yarsagumba is used in traditional Chinese medicine as a tonic to strengthen the immune response and rejuvenate the body. It is also a famed aphrodisiac. Currently, Yarsagumba is being studied as a potential cure for cancer. It has impressive antioxidant properties that neutralize free radicals, preventing oxidative damage – one of the causes of premature aging.

For the first time, these properties are being harnessed in skincare. The addition of the extract of the Wu-Zhu-Yu fruit enhances facial skin radiance, increasing the complexion’s brightness and decreasing transparency.
Face Serum No. 591 also includes the cultured stem cells of Coffea Bengalensis, which use triple layer technology to replump and restore a fresh, youthful appearance without the dehydrating effects of caffeine.

Face Serum No. 591
About Face Cream No. 590 works in synergy with Face Serum No. 591 to nourish and improve all aspects of your complexion. This silky soft, soothing cream contains the Tibetan miracle of Yarsagumba and Coffea Bengalensis Stem Cells. You’re receiving double the benefit using both Face Serum No. 591 and Face Cream No. 590

Face Cream No. 590 adds yet another amazing active ingredient that provides even more benefits for your skin. Face Cream No. 590 features a biomimetic peptide that has been tested in vivo and shown to increase skin firmness and elasticity while reducing the appearance of wrinkles and saggy skin. Panelists in the study agreed it helps the skin look firmer, fuller, and denser. 

It also contains Shea Butter, known to produce visibly younger skin by encouraging the regeneration of new surface cells and delaying the appearance of skin aging through softening and moisturizing. The Vitamin E in Face Cream No. 590 continues the hydration and prevents damage due to UV radiation.

  4. Have you ever tried a skin tightening solution that works? I am thinking about this mineral bath but not sure of the results.....
