What: Artistry Time Defiance Night Recovery Lotion, $74
Why: Aging gracefully isn't as easy as it's made out to be. For instance, there is nothing graceful about my scramble to purchase products that will aid in my perpetual battle against the evil forces of gravity. (Every year various parts of my body fall casualty to my ugly, no-win war.) But Artistry's Time Defiance Night Recovery Lotion has helped me to emerge from the trenches. Although I may one day admit defeat and wave the white flag to Father Time, Artistry's night lotion works in my sleep and allows me to awaken to skin that feels firmer and more energized.
Using high tech Derma Cell Exchange, it optimizes cell regeneration and communication to reverse the signs of aging. The creme claims eventual defeat of free radical damage, and that is enough to maintain my battle morale. It would be nice to have Mel Gibson in a loincloth and blue face paint providing age defiant motivation, but in the meantime, Artistry provides a serious ally against the facial ravages of time.
