As I have gotten older, my skin has started leaning more towards the drier side and therefore I am constantly on the hunt for gorgeous anti-aging creams and serums that resuscitate my parched skin. This is not an easy task because most richer more emollient moisturizing creams are heavy, greasy, cloying and just sit on the skin and take forever to asborb. So when I find a fabulous cream with wonderfully active ingredients and it delivers that perfect level of continuous moisture to my skin, I am over the moon. Allow me to introduce you to my latest discovery from a skincare line that I adore Michael Todd True Organics and his newest jar of goodness that makes-my-dry-skin-oh-so-happy Damascus Rose Enriched Anti-Wrinkle Cream ($125)
MTO’s Damascus Rose Cream was created to breathe new life into dry and mature skin. This powerhouse moisturizing cream contains 10 different peptides, including next generation tri-peptides which have been proven to boost collagen production in aging, collagen-deficient skin. Damascus Rose Cream is also rich in essential oils of Avocado, Jojoba, Palm, Rose Hips, Wheat Germ, Carrot Seed and Neem which are synergistically combined with antioxidants A, B5, C, E and Co-Enzyme Q-10 to protect against environmental stressors while restoring your skin’s optimal moisture balance. This cream also contains blue green algae which facilitates the elimination of toxins, promotes cellular renewal and naturally nourishes the skin. And it also contains black willow bark which has been recognized for thousands of years for its healing powers. Whew, that’s a lot of active, wonderfully powerful ingredients in one cream, don’t ya think?
I think it’s about time for a FABULOUS Spring Giveaway, don’t you? Well, you are in for a real treat because one of my most adored SoCal fashion brands is offering a very generous giveaway for Romy Raves readers, can I get a WOOT WOOT! First, let me tell you about the brand. Subtle Luxury is a SoCal based clothing company that designs fashion items with a washed, cozy lived-in look and a vintage feel.
Subtle Luxury makes the most gorgeous high quality cashmere sweaters that I have been wearing and buying for years! What I love about Subtle Luxury’s sweaters is that they are super lightweight, cozy, the designs are on trend and figure flattering and they hold up well over time. I have had some of my sweaters over ten years and the styles and quality have endured. And although they don’t come cheap, the craftsmanship and beautiful creative silhouettes are TOTALLY worth it!
They recently sent me the fabulous Tissue Thin V-Sweater in Persimmon ($234) which I am wearing in the picture above and I LOVE it! It is such a vibrant gorgeous show stopping melony Springy hue and it totally captures the season. And can we talk about the fabulous cut of this sweater, gorgeous, right? I love how the sides hang long and frame and flatter the body. These sweaters are made out of 100% California Cashmere, are ultra thin and super lightweight making them perfect for Spring and Summer and they can even be hand washed. However, I’m sad to say that this color sweater was so popular, that they have already sold out, but you can find a very similar style HERE.

All of the products in line also feature the Lancer Liposome, top of line antioxidant and peptide blends which help maintain a glowing complexion. This wonderfully active line is designed to refine pore size, texture, tone, color, and overall balance of your skin.
