Anti-Aging Flower Power

January 10, 2011By 5 Comments

As a lady in my early 30s (I done did say it, people), I’m definitely interested in staying young-looking for as long as possible. My main goal is to look 28 when I’m 62. I’ve been stocking up on under-eye creams, anti-wrinkle serums, moisturizers—anything I can get my lil’ paws on, really.

I wanted to share one of my recent finds with you that I’ve gone gaga over: Marie Veronique’s Anti-Aging Body Oil (with Rose and Neroli). Now, I’m already a fan of Marie Veronique skincare; they have a sunscreen that is out-of-this-world awesome, so I knew this body oil was gonna be the shit before I even tried it.

Why am I am currently addicted to this body oil?

  • It smells like a botanical garden (it’s like wearing rose perfume).
  • It combats aging with essential fatty acids and anti-oxidants from watermelon seed oil, vegetable squalene and apricot kernel oil.
  • A 4 oz bottle of body oil is made with more than 1 pound of neroli flowers and 420 (!) roses—this super concentrated potion packs a punch!
  • It protects and repairs the lipid barrier with essential fatty acids from avocado and jojoba oils.
  • It’s moisture-rich and feels amazing on my skin.
  • And most importantly, it’s 100% vegan and cruelty-free.

Ingredients: Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba oil), Persea americana (avocado oil), Prunus armeniaca (apricot kernel oil), Citrullus Vulgaris/Lanatus (watermelon seed oil), vegetable squalene (from olive oil), Rosemary oleoresin, Rosa damascena (Rose)essential oil, Citrus aurantium (Neroli) essential oil, Helichrysum italicum (Helichrysum), Pelagonium graveolens (Rose Geranium) essential oil, Curcuma longa Rhizome (Curcuma) essential oil

What do you use as part of your anti-aging beauty regimen?

    Does your site have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d like
    to shoot you an email. I’ve got some recommendations for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.

    I’ll have to give it a try. I’m in my mid-30’s….still being told I look like I’m in my mid-20’s and want to keep it that way. I’ve also developed adult acne; P! I recently started using the Solay Aging Beautifully natural soap and love love love it because it addresses all my issues.

    It’s 100% vegan, 100% natural with no preservatives, SLS or synthetic fragrance.

  3. Sounds like a good preventive measure. How do you use it: spray, rub, something else?

    Also, how much does lifestyle play in such a regimen? Are things like drinking water, digesting properly, and getting enough rest part and parcel with looking good into your old age, or do you think the topical ointments are enough?

    I’m male, so my view on aging and looks might be different 🙂 My anti-aging regimen includes drinking water, resting, being positive, and smiling a lot.
