When I reached out to Dr. Garo Kassabian about allowing me to try their Amino Lift Peptide Complex (aka BOTOX CREAM, PEOPLE!!!), and then offer their products for one lucky winner here on the blog, I had no idea of the treat in store for me (and for one of you).
I’ve teased this contest and promised it for quite some time, but I thought there was NO better time than May, which also happens to be
Skin Cancer and Melanoma Awareness Month.
SIDE NOTE: I also happen to be at higher risk for the dreaded disease because of my BRCA genetic mutation for breast & ovarian cancer (yes, we mutants are at higher risk for skin, stomach, pancreatic, and prostate (the guys of course) cancers as well as breast & ovarian).
THIS MEANS THE ISSUE IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME.
I met with Merlin Rubin, Dr. Kassabian’s in-house aesthetician, who gave me an unbelievably wonderful facial. Then after talking with me about my biggest skin issues and concerns, Merlin (who is extremely knowledgeable about skin, genetics, hormones and so much more) sent me home with a fantastic set of products and detailed instructions as to how to apply them.
By my own estimation I’m thinking the kit they put together for me would have cost me about 800.00. But you know what? It’s worth every penny, and the stuff lasts. I’m just now running out of only a few of the products (I need more botox cream people!! That sh*t WORKS) and I started this in February.
It’s MAY people.
I’m a pretty healthy person by most standards, but somehow taking extremely good care of my skin didn’t really occur to me from a health standpoint until recently. Oh sure, I’ve tried to use only the best products whenever possible, but that was only because I have sensitive skin and I wanted to fight off more wrinkles. But I simply never thought of selecting products for my skin’s HEALTH!
It wasn’t until I learned our skin absorbs everything in its environment (chemicals, toxins, nutrients) and needs our help in the battles it does for us in the world everyday, that I realized what a serious matter skin care really is.
I took my products home with information on a specific routine for in the morning and a slightly varied routine for in the evenings before bed (and on some nights the routine changed).
I was given cleansing, moisturizing and anti-aging treatments to utilize in conjunction with my own sunscreen (because I already had a very good product).
And now… please be kind, but here are my BEFORE & AFTER IMAGES. Now understand, miracles do not happen overnight, nor does repair, but I was quite pleased with the results and mostly by the way my skin FELT using these wonderful products!
NEED I SPELL OUT THE DIFFERENCES FOR YOU?
I admit the before image is just a little less sharp, so it was probably much worse than it really appears, but even still you can see a difference! Notice how after a month of using LiftMD Aesthetics’ products my skin’s tone is more even, my eyelids are more “lifted” and less thick. I’m ecstatic about these products!
HERE IS HOW TO WIN YOUR OWN PERSONALIZED SKIN CARE KIT VALUED AT UP TO $1000.00*
Watch the video below and follow the instructions. Good Luck!

Good Luck! The winner will be chosen and informed on May 15, 2014!
*the total value of the prize is not guaranteed, since products are customized to the winner’s skin type and condition, and some skin types may not be in need of intense help like mine was!

Our skin is the largest organ of the body and our first line of defense. It just makes good sense to take care of it and keep it healthy. Glad the product is working for you!!
Yup. The largest organ should get the largest amount of attention, right Onisha? 🙂
Elyse Salpeter says
I’d love to see the results after 3 months. You look so pretty in both that I couldn’t quite tell the difference, but either way, you do look like you care for your skin greatly.
Come come Elyse… You don’t notice how much more lifted my eyes look? That’s pretty obvious to me! And others noticed. Perhaps you need some of that eye-lifting cream? I hope you win! hahaha! XOXO

Wow! What great results! Thanks for sharing the “before and after,” Lisa. I’m always leery of new products, having very sensitive skin, and I wish I knew now what I didn’t 25 years ago when lathering on baby oil and cooking under intense CA sun. Protect your skin, young and old!
MWAH Elise! You are awesome. Yeah – I did that baby oil thing too. No idea about skin cancer back then. YIKES
Charles Dougherty says
Great post, Lisa, although skin care and life on a sailboat in the tropics are a tough combination to manage. My skin is way beyond repair;. Looks like it’s working for you, though. the before and after shots do show a difference.
thanks Charles! yep – loving these products!
Penny Deasy says
Would love to try these products, especially the “Botox” cream
Well I hope you win Penny!
You look Beautimous!!!!!

Getting older is no picnic. Parts start to sag, hair thins, spots appear on your skin and numerous other happenings. I am 68, retired and enjoying life to the fullest. I enjoy a healthy diet and got o the gym every other day faithfully every other day. I look pretty good for my age but I can see the changes from year to year and it doesn’t make any woman happy. I am not one to try different products, I’m an old fashioned gal who still uses Ponds Cold Cream every night however, when I saw Lisa’s Video, it really got my attention. Yes, I can see improvement in Lisa’s face and wonder if it would be beneficial for me.
I am excited about this product, would like to know more about it and I would love to see what it would do for me.
Joy Tarta says
I live a healthy life style and get plenty of exercise but wrinkles are unavoidable. I saw a big difference in Lisa after only 1 month and would love to try this wonderful cream myself.
Well I hope you win Joy! Thanks for coming by and commenting! 🙂
