I’m With Vogue: This IS A “Game-Changing” Beauty Product You Must Have

This is a “sponsored post.” JeNu compensated FOF with an advertising sponsorship to write it. Regardless, we only recommend products or services that we believe will be helpful for
our readers. All insights and expressed opinions are our own. —Geri Brin

It works! It really, really works!

IT is a little device, called the JeNu Ultrasonic Infuser System, that helps the skin care products I’ve been using to absorb into my skin, rather than sit on top, so they can really, really work. I started using JeNu two weeks ago, at the exact same time I began a new skin care regimen, called MD Complete, by Dr. Brian Zelickson. My before-and-after photos speak for themselves. I call the results pretty dramatic, working wonders on the areas of my face that most irritated me: My crows feet, under-eye droopiness, and nasolabial folds (those two lovely lines that run from beneath my nose, on both sides, to my lips.) Although everything hasn’t totally disappeared, the wrinkles and lines are far less pronounced, after only a couple of weeks!

Absorption: The secret behind the ‘magic wand’

The skin care line from MD Complete is undoubtedly playing a part in the improved appearance of my skin, and I plan to tell you about that next week. For now, I’d like to concentrate on why I believe JeNu is a must-have in the beauty routine of every woman over 45 (or the age when your estrogen level starts to diminish, and you suddenly see wrinkles, not to mention looser, drier and thinner skin).

First off, no matter how many “active” ingredients go into creating our serums, moisturizers and creams, and no matter how much the products cost, the majority of them are not absorbed quick enough into the skin to live up to their promises to abolish crows feet, fine lines, and more. The vast majority of them just sit on our skin’s surface, before evaporating into thin air, and while we may see some improvement, it’s invariably short term. In fact, the primary function of the skin is to act as a barrier that prevents the intrusion of external materials, so it’s not easy for cosmetic companies to develop formulations that actually can be absorbed into the skin to deliver all the benefits we expect.

No pain! Plenty of gain!

Enter JeNu, which was designed to use ultrasound energy to increase the rate, by six times, at which our skin absorbs the ingredients in our skin care products, so they’ll perform better and faster.

JeNu was just named by VOGUE magazine as a top game-changing product to own, and is getting raves from other highly respected beauty experts. It’s no wonder. JeNu is SAFE, gentle, convenient (can be used right at home), and a cinch to use. Unlike having a dermatologist perform a costly, and often painful, chemical peel or micro-needling procedure to prepare your skin to properly absorb products, JeNu is a fraction of the cost, and painless.

Real women. Real results!

Here’s how it works: First, I apply my skin care product, as usual. Then I put a pearl-size drop of their exclusive “conducting gel” (packed with the device and also the key to making your skincare products absorb 3 times more) onto the smooth metal head of the JeNu, turn it on and run the small, sleek wand over a section of my face, a minute at a time. The ultrasound energy transfers through special microspheres (hollow miniscule spheres of protein) in the gel, giving my products a “push” and helping my skin to absorb them more completely. Now the products have a chance to really do what the manufacturers’ promise, instead of simply evaporating on top of my skin after I’ve applied them with my fingertips. They can travel where they need to, and do things like stimulate collagen, which keeps our skin tight and youthful.

There have been 7 different studies in which hundreds of women have tested out the device, its manufacturer says. Time after time, JeNu has been shown to be safe, as well as effective, with 100% more women reporting softer, smoother skin, decreased fine lines and wrinkles, and a brighter, more radiant complexion when using a leading anti-aging serum with the JeNu Infuser versus alone.

My own little study proved what a little miracle worker it is. If your results are anything like mine, JeNu will become your “magic wand”, too!

    So sad that someone can be so swayed by the dollar sign…Geri, come clean. Yes, you put a disclaimer above your post, but this is in all respects, an advertisement – and not a very good one. Since everyone has already mentioned the difference in lighting, I will bring up something that hasn’t been mentioned. In the “after” photo, you have your eyebrows raised, as evidenced by both the deeper lines in your forehead and by the difference in the space between your eyebrows and the crease in your eyelids. If I do that, my crowsfeet diminish and the bags under my eyes almost disappear. There is nothing honest about this whole thing, other than the fact that you said that FOF was compensated with an advertising sponsorship.
    One more thing: In your final pic where you say with makeup you’re looking pretty good — how did the lines around and beneath your eyes reappear so quickly?

    Jee-zusss..What a bunch of nasty old shrews commenting and wasting space just to be heard and prove how much ‘smarter’ they are. Do you all think you are ‘teaching’ everyone how savvy you are by talking so much shit at this woman’s expense? So she loves the product, chooses to endorse it, put straight up brave pictures up of herself, maybe she makes a buck— lighting differences? Photo-shopping? WHO GIVES A SHIT. SO WHAT. THATS WHAT ALL OF SOCIAL MEDIA IS. I stumbled on this blog from a different beauty blog referencing this product. Just more info to take in about something i’m already interested in. I’m not going to buy it from this blog- because as someone who is already interested, and like anyone with half a brain, I’m going to continue researching and if I do want it I will buy it from the company. But i thank Geri profusely for her thoughts and for putting her pics out there, any old which way she chooses (SINCE IT IS HER BLOG AND SHE STATES RIGHT UP FRONT THAT ITS A SPONSERED POST)- because aging sucks dick and we are all looking for a little magic something, looking for a little hope of some new product, some wondrous cream/pill/makeup trick/diet/workout/wand to make us feel better without feeling like an asshole. Otherwise, why were any of you here in the first place?? Oh yeah..Trolls. Another commonplace part of social media. Anyways, Geri, I think you are beautiful, in both pics! Thank you for your thoughts on Jenu.

    Forget the JenNu – I have been using a device called the Tua Spa for years – under $200, it has not only a sonic (ultrasound) feature but ALSO a sonic cleansing feature AND a galvanic microcurrent feature…. And NO GEL required for use, although you can also use it for infusion if you want. BioTherm also makes a similar one. If you are looking for one of these, I suggest checking out the Tua Spa model – you will get a lot better value and more features too!!!

    Look at her neck and shoulders in the before and after. Before is all crepey; after is much smoother. I doubt if she used her magic wand down under her face out to her shoulders. If it were a real magic wand, I’d buy one for sure, but alas, it’s only a fairy tale.

    There is very little difference between the two pictures. The “after” photo has been “staged” to erace aging signs…….the lighting is different, so lines do not look as deep,…..the woman’s hair is shorter, bringing your eye up, and making droopiness not as noticeable, etc. She needs a facelift, fat transfer, and filler in her upper eyelids to turn the clock back.

    Why would you start a new skin regimen at the same time you are reviewing this new device?

The way you proceeded really does nothing to promote this device. Tula

    um…are you kidding? the before and after pictures look exactly the same except that in the first there is make-up caked into the cracks. exercise, eat well, hydrate and treat your skin gently–and save the $200. We can all do things to look our best, but no device is going to make anyone look the same as they did 10 or 20 years ago. And there are more important things to do with your precious time than obsess on your looks. And seriously, “Hurry, the company told me this product won’t be around for long”? If it’s such a miracle, wouldn’t they want to sell as many as possible to aging women for ever?

    The reader comments are well taken. Yet, despite the lighting differential, there does seem to be some improvement. I did notice that they touted “7 different studies”. I wonder if these studies were funded and/or conducted by the manufacturer, or if they were independent control studies. It would also be fair disclosure for Geri to reveal whether she was paid to do this trial, or if she received the equipment and other supplies free of charge. In addition, not all people respond and heal in the same way. It would be great if the manufacturer hosted a meeting for us where we could receive complimentary treatments to see how we respond to the device, and make a better buying decision. I don’t know for sure whether it works or not; IMHO we still need a little more information!

    Anything placed on our skin gets absorbed at the most within 26 seconds in to the cells and blood stream. And, that includes harmful chemicals such as man made perfumes and other ingredients found in most skin care products. I advise to contemplate what you put on your skin with or without this JeNu Infuser. If you use it with skin care products that contain ingredients harmful to our health, why send it in even quicker?

    I use ultrasound as a therapeutic modality in an outpatient clinic of a hospital. I sent an email several weeks ago asking for specifics on this machine and I have not gotten any response. Can you tell me what the w/cm2, mHz, and duty cycle are? On our machine, we set them, depending on the depth of the tissue we are treating. I assume they are pre-set, I would like to know what they are. Also, there are precautions we follow with use of the ultrasound, such as not directing it at an eyeball, not using it near or on a tumor or infected tissue. I hope the instructions address this.

  35. veritas says:

    If you want products to be absorbed better, into your skin, try exfoliating. It’s that simple. The older we get, the slower we slough of dead skin cells. If you are not exfoliating, you are basically applying all of your products to dead skin cells. Exfoliate first, and then use your moisturizers, serums, etc. A wonderful exfoliant: sea salt, honey and a bit of olive oil. Warm it, apply to face and rub in. Wash off. Your skin will glow and be better able to absorb whatever you want to apply after that! Shouldn’t cost more than $2

    As a photographer, side lighting highlights and eccentuates texture (or wrinkles in this instance), and front on lighting flattens and diminishes texture….exactly the effect seen here with a bit of ambient shadowing from an above light source, but you can clearly see the pin point of light in her eyes from the directly in front light source.

    I do photography, and I’m here to tell you the lighting is definitely different. The second picture also is a straight-on shot, the first one is not. There is a slight angle in the first one that will skew the real you. Lastly, in your second shot, your head is tilted slightly upward, which will also skew the result. The brighter light in the second photo will cover up more wrinkles. Without seeing the originals, it’s difficult to see whether the second photo has been doctored.

      Dear Reggie,

      Neutrogena is a skin care line consisting of moisturizer, eye cream, etc. JeNu is NOT a skin care formula, but a sonic device to help skin care products such as Neutrogena to be absorbed better. I try different skin care products all the time and I loved Neutrogena. In fact, whether the product is Neutrogena, or any other, it needs help to be absorbed into our skin. If you read the JeNu article, it explains this.

It is widely available and, I think, does about the same service for much less cost.

    She looks good, but I understand the comments about lighting. There are so many products that people get convinced to buy because of claims that are made and then the truth comes out that the consumer has been misled. As far as beauty treatments, most of them make claims that turn out to a far cry from the real results. I have been convinced too often that a particular topical cream will make the lines so much better, but again the reality is that I end up disappointed, as well as out a bunch of money. The truth be told, plain water can make skin look better for a second when it is thirsty. Lasting results are not really lasting. Wrinkles win in the end. That is just the facts.

      Dear Guest,

      Thank you for your thoughtful comments.

      The fact is that most women do not understand how and WHY our skin changes as we age and they don’t know which skin care ingredients to look for in a product, that can help their aging skin. They fall for all the advertising done by some big mass market brands, whose products DO NOT (repeat, DO NOT) contain ingredients that work for more than 20 minutes to puff out your face so your wrinkles look diminished.

      Even if you use a skin care line with fantastic ingredients, such as pure Retinol (Neutrogena’s line has it and so does MD Complete, among others), you need help to have your skin absorb them properly. That’s what the JeNu is for. It is not a gimmick. Its Sonic wave technology makes it effective.

      Best,
      Geri Brin.

    I have a professional photographer friend– and he also said the shadows are different, the back round & lighting are also a little different on the above before & after pics. PLUS– her hair is shorter, which gives a “lift” to the face. And lastly– her makeup is a little different too. The brows are more lifted on the after pic & looks like she has mascara smears on her before pic.

    What leading anti-aging serum is used with the JeNu Infuser?

    REPLY
    • Geri Brin says:

      Hi FoodieJudy, I have been using MD Complete, which contains pure Retinol, among other potent ingredients. The products were developed by a leading dermatologist in Minneapolis. The majority of mass market skin care products that you can buy in the drug store, such as Olay and L’Oreal, do nothing whatsoever for aging skin, except perhaps superficially for a couple of hours after they are applied. They do not contain ingredients like Retinol, which has been clinically proven to improve skin that has lost elasticity, etc. As a journalist, I have been acquainting myself with the beauty business since I launched FabOverFifty five years ago and I want to give every one in our community the benefit of the research I have worked hard to gather.

      If she had had filler done, she would look much better than she does. I don’t see a difference between the two photos, but it’s only been two weeks. I get filler done twice a year. Putting filler in the upper part of her face (cheekbone area and tear troughs) would have given her face a lift and minimized the general sagging and nasolabial folds. A drop should be put in the folds, as well. Some botox would soften her crowsfeet.

So while they are being so critical of the ‘lighting’ and calling this a scam, Geri, just know that anyone who has done any research on any products would know that their criticisms are unfounded.

            The lighting in the after photo is diffused. Above lighting isn’t flattering either. It is better than being lit from below as you see in her “before” photo. Nothing is worse than up lights. I am sure there is more to the “after” photo than lighting. She might have purposely dehydrated herself for the before photo. Or she could have taken the first photo immediately after waking up when wrinkles are worse from laying on the pillow. Who knows? But that little sonic thingy didn’t do the trick.

          • Njp Thompson says:

            I agree. The angle of the lighting on the face is important to show or hide wrinkles. Why do you think they have so many lighting professionals in entertainment? People get old. You can control a lot of sagging-and ugliness by staying out of the sun, controlling your intake of foods, hydrating, eating healthy, and getting sleep. No matter what your age. And many attractive sexy old people are VERY WRINKLED. It is who they ARE that matters most.

            I do not quite agree with this.

            While the most important thing is accepting and loving ourselves, and there is no miracle one time treatment that solves all aging issues…

            There ARE indeed technologies that can vastly improve the appearance of women d’une certain age and above.

            The trick is – and here is where I will agree with you – it is much easier to PREVENT the signs of aging, than the REVERSE them – although some of them can indeed be reversed to an extent.

            Retinol, red light, ultrasound, microcurrent, and home lasers – yes, they absolutely do work and depending on your diligence, they can work amazing well and make a visible difference in a person’s appearance.

            I started working to preserve my appearance in my mid-forties and it has paid off for me.

            I encourage women at that age to start thinking ahead, while they still look young, to research the treatments or programs that will work for them.

            What stake do you have in my comment? If I truly wanted this product, I could afford to purchase it. My tiny little violin plays for your gullible self.

          • Amy says:

            What stake do you have being negative and nasty on someones blog, when you aren’t even interested in the product. Her hair is barely pulled back, you can actually see more defined lines on her forehead in the after picture, the lighting is not that much different..all three pictures demonstrate some pretty hard white light. The first pic has it coming in from more on the side, but it’s hitting her square on the skin, the others are coming down, which would cause wrinkles to show more shadows anyhow. Honestly, whats your point everyone. This was clearly about a beauty product that through her personal use she loved, so shes writing a blog on it. All of you have a lot of time on your hands to be inspecting pictures and lashing out like it’s a conspiracy. Don’t buy it, no one is pushing it, dont use it, but keep your miserable suspicious comments to yourself, it’s not like she’s hawking it, or hawking some cleanse and miracle weightloss pill. I will try it, My Physical therapist uses ultrasound wave technology to deliver a cream pain med to my back because it is more efficient and effective…seems a similar process….and if I’m already dishing out $1000s of dollars on the best creams and serums…why not spend another $200 on an asset that will last several years and possibly make them more efficient and more worth the money…Do my due diligence, look for more reviews and see if there is any negative “real” press on it. And thank this woman for putting herself and her makeup-less face up for all to see, in harsh white light….so I could learn that the product even exists and use my own critical thinking without being snotty. one after the other of you…honestly. For what? White harsh light is white harsh light….she could where the same clothes and same hair and same exact perfectly angled harsh white light and suddenly 1/2 of you skeptics will believe her? and not even wonder if it’s photoshopped? honestly, just typing to hear yourselves “talk” and knock someone when they are putting it out there, in a humble, non agressive manner. Just trying to share some interesting facts and share and interest product.

          • Steve Nordquist says:

            Kat wasn’t actually negative. I think I could wind some of that up having read ‘Mandarine Serum’ (and not the comic book where it’s revealed what that is; thanks for the link that might have had citations to explain it (not yet it hasn’t, no;) but I can say:
            tl; dr–not shaving 10 minutes of moisturizing fuss either
            switching to yerba mate tea rather than green tea before 3 (PM, f’rexample.)
            good job at Geri warming up the camera again, keep on…

          • Westy J says:

            you should learn to read better. she didn’t say that she didn’t believe in the product, she just made a statement of a beauty fact of how pulling back your hair makes a difference as well as different lighting, clothing colors, etc. you shouldn’t be so rude & nasty anyway.

          • Guest says:

            The irony is how you jump & celebrate one person’s support but, choose to ignore the rest of the comments. Look at the number of up votes simple lighting correction requests have gotten. If this thing was really the “Game-Changer” your reimbursed claim states, you would be posting more after photos & ensuring the lighting & hair were as similar as possible.
            My only thought at this point is, if this were my blog, simply pull this post, unless, of course, you’ve made so much commission it makes this ongoing conversation worth it?
            Oh & nice to block Ria when all she was doing was responding to you.

          • sistadana says:

            The lighting is different. I don’t care if they were both taken in your living room. In the before. Light is coming from the left, slightly from the rear, some areas are bright, others dark. In the second photo, there is overall less contrast. Now, it may be that there are fewer wrinkles, but, from the lighting, it is impossible to tell

          • Ria says:

            So you don’t see a difference between the pictures other than what you are purporting as these miraculous changes? I would be happy to draw circles around every difference that has NOTHING to do with your wand! The before picture is harsher lighting whether you were sitting directly under a bare light or not. The after picture is diffused light, possible facing a different direction. It can’t be the same spot unless you were slid down in the chair in the “Before” and sitting up straight in the after (chair back is missing). I did not claim you intend to mislead or photo shopped but, at this point after all the comments & your various protests . . . . I recommend a retake of the after in just as harsh & direct light as the before. I mean by now the difference should be even more extreme with another week of use & improvement. Please at least share the level of reimbursement you are receiving for promoting this product. Even the Chicken Chick in the interest of full disclosure advises the ads on her page are paid ads with some very nice freebies.

          • Ria says:

            just your eyes no surrounding wrinkles! see the lighting difference yet?

          • Therese Christensen says:

            Holy hell! That product made her nose straighter too! Oh, wait, no…it’s the lighting again. Sorry 😉

          • Bodyn Soil says:

            I noticed the same thing too.

          • Bodyn Soil says:

            Not using eyeliner under the bottom lashes would also make her look younger. There are so many things that could be related to improved skin tone, like hydration via ingested water.

          • Susan Lynn Nicklas says:

            we can SEE the difference in the shadows.
            seriously…

          • Beth_12 says:

            Sorry Geri, not buying it. If the photos were taken in exactly the same spot, why does the sofa not appear over your shoulder in the second picture, and why is there some sort of wall decoration in the second photo (above the left side of your head) that does not appear in the first.

          • kaththee says:

            Maybe the same room and the same spot but the LIGHTING is different. You are under lit in the first photo which always accentuates wrinkles, bags and other issues. In the after photo you are lit with a light kit with a diffuser- you know that big umbrella next to the light. You can get the same results by placing a lamp on the floor in the before photo and then use a professional light kit (about 80 dollars) in the after photo- no device needed at all.

          • Allyson Diva says:

            I agree that ultra sound is effective, but there are other, potentially better or cost effective products for the same purpose and possibly a better rpcie.

            I laugh when one of these products hits the the US market – usually, the technologies have been used in Europe, especially France or Italy, for years before they hit the US, and the are marketed here like they are a Great New Discovery.

            Ultrasound, sonic cleansing, red lights, laser, microcurrent – all old hat in Europe to keep women looking great and here in the US they push them like they are amazing never before heard of ideas.

            They’re all effective, but ladies, shop around, do your research before making the choices that are right for you. Caveat Emptor!!!

          • Eliza says:

            Allyson, Thanks for the info that gets to the gist. Do you know names for these ultrasound, red light, laser, microcurrent products that have been used successfully in Europe–or do you know of a good resource to find this info?

        • Geri Brin says:

          Hi Nancy,
          The lighting was the same, in my living room, in the same location. There was nothing gimmicky about this. The product is genius. I adore it and use it every day.

          • Ria says:

            How did you get it diffused so nicely? Sorry there is a difference & even if the first one was sitting directly under the light in the brown chair & the second was facing a white wall with the light bouncing off of it, there is a difference.

          • Nathalie says:

            You are some very obbsessed lady with lighting. just dont buy the product and move on with your life. your such a waste.

          • Killashandra says:

            Geri – Sorry. I’m a photographer. This is a classic lighting trick that we ALL use to make people look younger. But, I don’t like to call people liars, so I’ll assume that the lighting WAS the same. However, you sat slightly more back from the light source in the second photo (reference the shadows on your forehead in the second shot). Also, there was a white reflector or a flash unit used in the second shot to push more light into the frame. The tell tale is in the eyes … there is obviously a light source in FRONT of them in the second shot. There was no light in the eyes in the first photo, but there is an obvious reflection of a very bright frontal light source in your eyes in the second photo. Seriously. If you want us to believe you, take another photo using the exact same before and after conditions. There might be some difference from the product, but the dramatic difference is in the lighting in this shot.

          • kaththee says:

            Thank you for that information. I am not a professional photographer but have used a light kit and I know how a diffuser works. Plus I have eyes. I don’t like calling people liars either but people lie especially for monetary gain.

          • mary says:

            I have taken before and after pics EXACTLY in the same spot & I don’t think my after pics have EVER come out EXACTLY (lighting, glare, shadows, etc) no matter how hard I tried.

            ?: do you use this FIRST before you apply your products?

            ?: where can I order the gel. I’ve looked at website and all come out with the Jenu applicator which I already bought. I think I accidently threw away my gel so I haven’t been able to use it because 1) it says it’s not supposed to be used without the gel and 2) I haven’t found where I can buy just the gel! Can you please send me a link to buy the gel? Text it to me at 351-944-3818. Thanks! I’m excited to use it but haven’t been able to without the gel.

            ?: what can u use for the lips? I used it alone (with gel when I still had it) and saw no difference so I’m thinking I may need to buy a product. I thought it would plump my lips a tad like the website said but it didn’t. I’m 61 so I contribute that to my age! lol no not lol I should put tears! Ha!

            Anyway please text me a link or just put your recommendations here! My email is maryleepena@aol.com.

            Thank you! May I recommend you just pull those pics that seem to have upset some of the ladies and re-post new ones! I’ll be happy to post mine once I can finally start using mine.

            God bless you and ALL the ladies searching for products that will help us all look and feel better about ourselves!

        • Diana Kay Hoskins says:

          There is always someone who has to say something negative. The lighting is the same people. Anyone can see that. You can see the lighting shining down on her forehead and nose in basically the same way in both pictures. And the clothes?? I don’t see anything in her clothes in the picture on the right that is any better than the clothes on the left?? unless you are talking about the freakin orange bow?? Both pictures are ‘in your face’ photos, not glamour shots by any means.

          REPLY
          • Nancy L. Rattigan says:

            If you can’t tell that the photo on the right is lighter, then you need your eyes examined. Frankly, I’m not impressed with either photo.

          • Ria says:

            If you really believe your statement & see no difference in the lighting then YOU definitely need to buy this product. But, the rest of us see harsher more direct lighting, along with an uplift to the corners of her mouth (this creates a subtle deepening in laugh lines & nasal labial folds) where as her after photo the lighting is diffused. But, please buy this & tell us how wonderfully this works. I personally do not have $100s to throw around on something I only see a minor difference which even as she said could be this new face regimen & have NOTHING to do with this pricey lotion spreader.

          • Westy J says:

            there are just too many people that are aware here. It is so obvious, how can you say that you don’t see it. are you selling this product also or getting a cut?

          • kaththee says:

            Are you blind? Do you own stock in the product? Whatever you are, you are not a photographer. The “before’ photo uses up lighting and the second “after” uses a light diffuser. Take a photo of yourself with a lamp on the floor nearby. In the second photo put a mirror in your lap and shine it toward your face as a make shift diffuser. See the difference in the two photos. It will be very dramatic. That 200 dollar wand didn’t erase wrinkles. If you believe that it did then I want to tell you about some money my family has stuck in Africa. All you need to do is give me your bank info and I will fill it full of money which we can split later.

          • ChefPattyO says:

            ok ms.nasty…no she is not blind because I am also a photographer and she is correct the lighting is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT in these 2 photos! She has a cast of shadows on the first and the light is dead on her face on the second pic and very bright! A diffuser would not get rid of a shadow like in the first picture.You do not have to be so rude to people .Not to say the product does not work .We are just saying the lighting is not exactly the same is all.If you tip the back of your screen back you will see this pic start to turn into what looks like a negative,that will show you how the lighting is different in both pics by the two darker areas.Not the same.

          • Suellen McCollim says:

            I am a professional portrait artist, and I can tell you the lighting is extremely different. The before picture has harsh, bright light and the second is shadowed. Not the same, sorry.

        • Lily J says:

          I agree the lighting is not the same. That’s obvious. There is way more light in the first picture shining on her right side of the face. I don’t even know how it can be claimed otherwise! Having said that, I do see some difference in the two photos. I wouldn’t pay that much money, but there is a noticeable difference. And if she is happy, then that’s all that matters!

      Theresa, make up isn’t great for your skin. Too many people spackle on the foundation.

Ria…there are brushed for sensitive skin..and that’s perhaps what you should have looked into …but I’ve had mine for over 20 years, and I cannot say enough about it. I use it twice a day…my pores are clear, my skin is firm, I am 57 and get mistaken for late 30’s early 40’s..I got the wand today…and used it last night with my ARBONNE products…WONDERFUL….you ladies need to pamper yourselves more.

            Makeup can be good for your skin especially makeup with SPF. The immediate benefits of looking better can encourage women and girls to reapply and the SPF can keep the skin young, healthy and cancer free. Every time I have left the house, I have worn foundation with SPF for 20+ years and lipsticks with SPF since it was first sold in the 80s. My skin looks a lot better than the model. My mother’s skin (also has worn SPF foundation for decades) looks much better than the model as well and she is 76.

          • Medical Aesthetician says:

            Never mind the lighting, which definitely is a key component in the after photo. Maybe taken in the same place but at a different time of day which influences the lighting. The main point of concern here is none of that. Nothing can penetrate the skin to the deeper layers of the skin where it is needed to stimulate the production of complex proteins like collagen and elastin to improve the skin unless the Ph of the product is low enough and unless the molecule is small enough. No product over the counter is going to have a product with a Ph low enough to do this. Nor will they have molecules small enough to penetrate. Its like trying to push a basketball through a keyhole. While I do believe the sonic instrument could have some value to it if used with professional products, using it with just any over-the-counter product will not be effective. It can be compared to using a prescription product vs. a non-prescription product. As a professional Medical Aesthetician who has practiced medical aesthetics for more than 25 years, the verdict is still out on this instrument unless used with medical quality ingredients.

        Dearest Laura, I am an average looking slightly pretty 57 yr old woman. I do have my share of wrinkles but am fortunate to have fairly nice skin and a nicely defined jawline with a fairly firm neck. My problem is I just do not know how to photograph well. I ALWAYS look like I have gas or am just fresh from a sick bed. The ONLY time I ever look GOOD in a photo is outdoors on a sunny day when I am totally unaware someone is taking my picture. PLEASE oh PLEASE share your tips with me. I would like just one or two nice pics to celebrate my 10th Anniversary with my husband (coming up in Nov.)and would give anything to have just one photo come out looking nice.My email is gleeducar@gmail.com and you can always find me on Facebook under Ginnie Ducar. I am the only one. I would be in your debt and forever your friend. Thank you, I hope you get this message.

          1- the lighting- try the window light & without a flash .
          2-use a soft filter
          3- relax and be your beautiful self .

      Why bother with the makeup. You can get the same results with a cheap light kit (about 80-100 dollars) or you can make your own light diffuser by placing a mirror on your lap for the after photo. All the wrinkles will magically disappear.

      REPLY
      • Sue says:

        Usually the before picture is taken in harsh direct lighting and the after is indirect light that is usually placed behind the subject. A photographer taking my picture did my photo this way when I did not like any of the other photos he took of me and BINGO we had a winner!
