Your neck area ages in different ways. “Type A” people experience thinning, collapsing brittle skin on the neck that becomes dry and sinks with diminished elasticity (“chicken neck”). “Type B” people get something even worse–a heavier full neck (“double chin”). and, both types can see increased age spots and lines.
Dimitri James has two custom formulas in serum strength creams for Type A or Type B aging. I received the “Type B: Chin-Up Firm, Lift and Tone” serum. It’s created with Ovaliss™ complex, an advanced coconut extract shown to strengthen, tighten and help burn excess fat deposits that accumulate on the neck area. Renovage™ will help slow down the aging process on heavier necks (press literature claims by 33%) and help to diminish age spots and lines. The result is, hopefully, a more streamlined, less full, firmer looking neck and jaw line.
Here is a list of the ingredients: citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) fruit extract, carthamus tinctorius (safflower) oleosomes, carthamus tinctorius (safflower) seed oil, glycereth-26, glycerin and coco-glucoside and caprylyl glycol and alcohol and glaucine (Ovaliss™), hyaluronic acid, phospholipids, caffeine, caprylic/capric triglyceride and teprenone (Renovage™), ethylene/acrylic acid copolymer, phenoxyethanol, caprylyl glycol, ethylhexylglycerin, hexylene glycol, styrene/acrylates copolymer, sodium polyacrylate, citrus aurantium amara (petitgrain) leaf oil, cholecalciferol (vitamin D), disodium EDTA, copper PCA
*both Ovaliss and Renovage are used under the authority of Sederm, inc. that makes other anti-aging products such as Matrixyl® 3000.
This seems like a good start as far as good-for-your-skin ingredients, I didn’t see any information about how long you have to use the serum to see results. I can report that my personal experience using the product, was pleasant. Anything that’s easy and nice to use hopefully means you’ll use it regularly and as directed. The serum smells refreshingly green and clean, and feels cool and just a bit tingly on the skin. I barely noticed I had it on. Apply after face serum treatments to back and front of neck, décolleté, and jaw line and then follow with your usual moisturizing treatments.
I have reviewed and liked Dimitri James Skinn products in the past. This new product is modestly priced and that’s also a plus. Although I couldn’t use it long enough to report on it’s effectiveness, it seems to have all the right stuff. Double chins and chicken necks had better run and hide!
