Marissa's Pick of the Week- Moisturize Your Stress Away

YES! YES! AND YES!!! Clinique's Superdefense Triple Action Moisturizer had everything i wanted in a day cream. Then they went and changed it on me...for the better! The original formula launched back in 2005 when I was a proud lab coat wearing skin care geek. Since then, I haven't tried a moisturizer (almost a dozen) that I liked better. I loved it it because I was a fresh faced 20-year-old concerned with preventing skin damage and signs of aging such as fine lines, age spots and loss of radiance. The original formula was a skin care technology break through, offering broad spectrum protection and pollution filters in 3 formulas for different skin types.
Jammed packed with potent antioxidants, Superdefense shielded you from UVA (aging) and UVB (burning) rays with an SPF of 25 (the highest SPF I had seen in a basic daily moisturizer at the time), and had IPF (Immune Protection Factor) technology.
At the time, most moisturizers with SPF only protected you from UVB rays, leaving your skin vulnerable to the harsh effects of UVA damage. Remember that UVA are the sun rays that age your skin. It attacks the layers of your epidermis that can attribute to age spots, wrinkles, and The Big "C." Yes cancer. The Langerhans cell, which identifies skin cancer cells, is a big fat target without UVA protection. Can't get much better than that! But wait...
The new formula IS better than that! This amazing face armor, now called Superdefense SPF 25 Age Defense Moisturizer ($42.50) does all of the above PLUS battles emotional stress damage and repairs signs of aging. How? I don't know. That's the stuff only Clinique people know, but it's pretty awesome!
