Martha and Me (and maybe You)!


Remarkably, I actually have two things in common with the original Domestic Goddess Martha Stewart.    It certainly isn't gardening, since I have aversion to dirt and worms.  And it definitely isn't baking as I have even managed to screw up Duncan Heinz brownies, (fyi: Extra Virgin Olive Oil does not count as vegetable oil).

What we do share is a relationship with the delightful Annie Fisher, her stylist for The Martha Stewart Show and a personal client of mine, who also shops with me at Richards occasionally for Martha. Martha and me also share an affinity for Dr. Gerald Imber's Youth CorridorDr. Imber, is one of N.Y.'s most renowned Plastic Surgeons, with a long list of celebrity clients alledgedly.  I read his no nonsense paperback book The New Youth Corridor (The Guide to Timeless Beauty), from cover to cover about a year ago.  It is chock full of information about prevention and maintenance tips for healthy skin, with specific assessments for treatments for different ages. My favorite of his no-no's???...Don't Run.  Dr. Imber believes the continuous pounding leads to skin laxity and sunken faces.  Phew!!! A great excuse reason to avoid an aerobic activity I hate.  Thanks Doc!

For me, the star of the Youth Corridor regimen is the Skin Brightener with Botanicals and AHA (alpha hydroxy acid).  It is housed in an ocean blue glass vile, with a rubber tipped squeeze dropper.  If I had to guess, I would imagine it is to protect the potency and stabilization of the Skin Brightener and the dropper helps keep the "dosing" exact.  The consistency of this shimmering, opaque fluid is cool to the touch.  Just 3 drops gets my skin glowing and radiant each morning and the hydroquinone free formula works to lighten age spots and freckles.



When it fell to the bathroom floor the other morning, I actually contemplated salvaging it!  (Who knows??? Maybe glass shards would make an excellent exfoliator)!.  Fortunately, I came to my senses, but for $95 bucks, you would have thought about it too...admit it.

I contacted  the P.R. executive who represents Dr. Imber and nicely asked if they would replace it.  I also asked, since I LOVE this product so much, if they would consider doing a giveaway for my readers. Nice and nicer, they not only agreed to both requests, but they are offered to provide two Skin Brighteners for my giveaway!!!

How can you double your chances of winning?  Help me continue to grow my readership and email this blog to your BFF...then split it!  Every person who leaves a comment will have a chance to win.  I will pick the winners randomly on Monday May 2nd at 8 p.m.  Good luck to all and don't for get to check back to see if you won... and if you did, just remember to "handle with care".

xox,
DD

  11. Aw this story made me sad! I hate dropping bottles or losing makeup items - I lost my Edward Bess bronzers a week or two after I bought them! =( I'm glad you had serum replaced, and I'd love to try it! I'm always paranoid about my skin and I love trying brightening products =)

  28. New to your blog:
    Thanks for the info on "don't run"
    I had no idea that running was so bad on women's skin. Great info.

    I am not familiar with the Youth Corridor line. Sound like an excellent product.
