I've said it before and I'll say it again: Don't be Nora Ephron. Take care of the skin on your neck, and you will avoid turkey-wattle skin when you're older. My cohort Giggle knows this, which is why she decided to test-drive a neck cream for our necky edification. Take it away, Giggle:
"Befine Neck Cream ($27.99) has mushroom extracts for firming, iris flower for tightening, and caffeine to even out and smooth. It has a wonderful smell and feels great as a light moisturizer. As far as smoothing or tightening my neck, though, perhaps this is something I might see after long-term use, but I can't say I noticed anything different than I would have with a good moisturizer. I would stick with a heavier moisturizer over a cream formulated for your neck, because I have dry skin."
Both of us like how the Befine product line has an earthy, natural approach to skincare, basing its products on foods that are good for the body with the mantra "you are what you eat." The other ingredients included in this particular product sound promising: sugar cane to help with cellular regeneration and collagen production, and rice peptides to provide antioxidant protection. I still say that sunblock is the best way to prevent wrinkles, but if you're a mushroom fiend who wants to avoid turkey-neck, this cream could be gravy.
