ElaSpa Organic, Vegan, and Cruelty-free Anti-Aging Cream Forte #review

I recently got the opportunity to try my first product by ElaSpa. I was one of their lucky winners on Twitter! I won their Anti-Aging Cream Forte. They are so generous and are always giving away their products on their Twitter page. You should give them a follow and maybe you'll be one of their lucky winners!

I was not familiar with this line at all. It turns out that they are a professional spa line. I didn't get to choose what I won but it definitely chose me and I believe that we were meant to be. I have been using this product for almost a month and the results in this short amount of time have been nothing short of amazing!

Even though I've only been using this product for just under a month, I'm gonna go out there and say that this one of the top, if not THE top skincare product that I've tried in terms of anti-aging results.

Leave it to my skin to have expensive taste! I noticed good things happening right away, so I contacted the company asking where I can buy this if it works out for me.
Since it's a professional spa line, it's only sold in spas, which means that it's on the pricey side and not so accessible. I wasn't able to find a location near me that sells their products so I'll have to contact them again once I finish savouring this bottle.

When I test out new skincare, I glance at the ingredients and directions but that's about it. I don't want to be swayed by all the claims. I want to see with my own eyes if there are any changes, good or bad. So it wasn't until am I writing this post that I see all of the claims, and they sure live up to each an every one of them.

My Experience:
  • A little goes a long way.  I recommend 1/2 a pump
  • I love the packaging with the pump that keeps the product fresh
  • Has a beautiful spa like scent, think herbal with lemon verbena 
  • It doesn't absorb quickly but that is no reflection of whether or not this product works and it gives me an opportunity to massage my skin (which is a good thing!)
  • Once it does absorb, it absorbs completely
  • Skin is moisturized sufficiently 
  • No oiliness or sticky residue
  • Makes a beautiful canvas for your makeup
  • Immediately an old acne scar started to fade
  • Over time my skin is more taught and firm, jowls have diminished
  • Skin is brighter, clearer, younger looking
  • Pores are much smaller
  • Overall skin looks younger

I have always thought that skincare can only do so much, and it's true. Through all my experimenting I've experienced good products, bad products, and great ones. This is one of the great ones. 

I find that slackening skin is my biggest ager and it's a tough thing to deal with. It's not like I can just go pick up a skin cream that lifts my skin. Some products may tighten and give a temporary lift, but I'm talking about wanting real changes to my skin not just a lift for a few hours. 

I never thought that skincare could help with slackening skin as we age. I mean it's gravity taking over, how can a cream change that?! Well, I don't know how but this skin cream seems to be making a definite difference in tightening up my skin. 

Some results from skincare can be immediate and some come with long term use. I am hoping to keep seeing improvements with this product and I will be beyond ecstatic! When it comes to great skincare, this is one area where I am definitely willing to splurge.

I will always be testing out new skincare but this one has moved up to the top of my list of anti-aging heavy-hitters.
