When you need a high-power skin treatment, this is the bomb

Miss Emmy's Human has used AHA products for many years, and alpha hydroxy is especially useful for oily skin which is prone to breakouts. When she uses AHA consistently, her skin is clearer, less oily, and troublesome pores are less troublesome.

This cream is deluscious!

Miss Emmy continues her quest for purrfect skin care.  Of course, as she has stated before, the very best skin care comes about from grooming one's fur with one's tongue.

But, barring fur and a tongue with a built-in brush, Something Must be Done, and this nummy cream is really the best.


It comes in a very generous 2.6 oz jar, and the package also includes a sweet little travel jar and a spatula for scooping out some cream for your trip.

Ceramide Moisturizing & Nourishing Cream is appropriate for all skin types, and while it is marketed for post peel care, it is also awesome for just every day moisturizing.

Miss Emmy's human uses it after her shower on days when she's not wearing makeup, and before bed after cleansing.  Since she has oily skin, she's not able to wear such rich cream during the day under her makeup.  She's also used it sparingly on the backs of her hands and loves the soft result.

This lovely cream can be purchased through Amazon here:  http://www.amazon.com/Ceramide-Post-Chemical-Peel-Soothing-Moisturizing-Cream/dp/B00WH1LSY2/, and we highly recommend it.  #ceramidefacialcream

We also appreciate MaxLife's generosity for sending us this sample in exchange for our impartial review.  What Miss Emmy means is, while this is not the best cream for lapping up with your dinner, it is pretty darned great on your human's furless mug.

Purr-fect skin is hard to get

Especially if you do not have a specially-crafted feline tongue for combing and exfoliating.  Frankly, I find it difficult to understand why humans have so much trouble with their skin, and agonize over aging.

I mean, if you would simply GROW FUR like any sensible feline, this would not be a problem.

Ah.  So.  But who listens to me?  At least YOU do, dear reader!  Else why would you be here to absorb my inordinate wisdom?

At any rate, my human is very fond of what she calls AHA's.  Alpha Hydroxy Acids, glycolic acids, and even retinol creams.  She has very oily skin, large pores (does this mean she has even lower income than low-income people?  Why doesn't she eat CAKE?), and has struggled for nice skin for many, many years.

She has had very good success with serums and lotions which contain AHA's.  In fact, about a year ago, she noticed that her skin was beginning to feel rough, like sandpaper.  This happened mostly below her chin line and even on her neck.  She tried exfoliants and scrubs, and of course lots of moisturizer.  She mentioned this issue to her dermatologist, who actually suggested the problem was AGING SKIN (he probably wanted to recommend she grow fur, but didn't want to hurt her feelings).

Then she happened to remember some AHA cleansers and lotions she had put away, and (I kid --or kitten-- you not) there was vast improvement in this rough-feeling skin THE VERY NEXT MORNING.  And as long as she maintains an AHA regimen, this issue has not returned.

But since the products she pulled out of her cupboard were old and mostly gone, she's been looking for a new source of serums and lotions, and happened upon THIS

at Amazon.

If you haven't encountered the benefits of alpha hydroxy acids in the past,  you should know that they:

1. remove dead skin cells
2. regenerate healthy skin
3. lighten the skin tone
4. reduce/remove age spots (Hyperpigmentation)
5. remove fine lines
6. reduce deep wrinkles
7. open clogged pores and reduce enlarged pores
8. treat acne
9. increase collagen and elastin growth (skin barrier repair)
10. treat effectively stretch marks
11.improve texture and clarity of skin.

While using this serum, my human has noticed (and so has Miss Emmy) improvement with ALL of these issues, excepting stretch marks (because she fortunately doesn't seem to have those... yet).  She reports that use of AHA's definitely open her pores, reduce their size, and improve the texture of her skin.

If she's happy (and doesn't forget to feed me tuna), then I'm happy too.  We did receive this lovely serum at a deep discount in exchange for an honest report of our experience, and here it is.  If you too refuse to grow fur like a sensible feline, then at least order this stuff.  I can't promise you any hairballs, but you definitely won't feel like sandpaper.

Stay smooth.
