It has been a rough time for businesses over the last few months. With several brands launching during the pandemic and existing companies introducing new products, I thought I would round up some of my favorite must-have clean beauty products that epitomize self-care.
Epicuren Discovery is one of those brands that when I go back twenty-five years or so in my beauty routine—it was an absolute staple, especially their Colostrum Luminous Glow Cream. But with so many shiny, new brands and products, sometimes it’s a little too easy to forget how great a tried and true staple is. Luckily, I have come full circle and have been reminded how great this brand is again.
For those unfamiliar with Epicuren, it is a family-owned prestige beauty brand (referred to as one of “Hollywood’s best kept secrets”) launched over 35 years ago that offers a full range of face and body result-driven products (that can be used at home or in the spa) made from natural ingredients.
The brand doesn’t drop products very regularly but just recently launched two new ones—Tighten Up Neck Firming Cream and Defend & Balance Tinted Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50.
“We don’t believe in ‘launching a product just to launch a product’”, states Heidi Ackerman, Vice President of Marketing at Epicuren Discovery. “We decided to launch Tighten Up Neck Firming Cream and Defend & Balance Tinted Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 in 2020 because we believe they fill gaps in our line and are also some of the most beautiful ingredient decks we have come across.”
Tighten Up is for anyone who has crested that age where you visibly notice the telltale signs of aging in your neck area—like loss of elasticity, and medium to deep wrinkles on neck and décolleté. After a few weeks I am seeing visible results. While I don’t have wrinkles in this region, laxity of skin is what I am trying to prevent. It is scent free and leaves my neck and décolleté feeling hydrated and tight immediately after use. “Tighten Up has a mix of extremely effective ingredients that have shown improvements in significantly tightened and lifted skin on the neck while also smoothing deep neck wrinkles,” explains Ackerman.
