Skincare Reviews: Aveeno Positively Ageless Night Cream

Skincare Reviews Aveeno Positively Ageless Night CreamContinuing in my preventive maintenance approach to skincare, I tried Aveeno’s Active Naturals Positively Ageless Lifting and Firming Night Cream.

Skincare Review: Athena 7 Minute Lift

Athena 7 Minute Lift Cream Review Wrinkle Cremes That WorkBecause of how many products I try, it’s very rare that one really piques my interest anymore. Athena’s 7 Minute Lift is one of the few that has succeeded in doing so.

Athena 7 Minute Lift is very unique as products go. First of all, it’s not a cream so much as a thick gel – it comes with a concealer brush that you use to “paint” it onto your face and smooth problem areas. The product comes with detailed instructions on doing so, and even provides a Q&A of what to do if you have any number of problems with or questions about your results.
