(Turkey) Neck and Chest Creams from Avon, Biotherm and StriVectin

You'll do yourself a world of good if you start moisturizing your neck and decolletage area now - along with your hands, it's one of the areas that can really show your age even if you have taken great care of your face.  You can use your regular moisturizer or if you feel like getting fancy, there are special creams especially for these areas, here are a few that I've tried, with mixed results:

Avon Solutions Neck & Chest Perfector Refining Cream SPF 15 - 100ml - $20 - It says it helps reduce signs of sun damage, blotchy discolourations and fine wrinkles in the delicate neck and chest area. It is a lovely thick lotion that is very moisturizing - be careful about how much you pump, I found a full pump was way too much - half was just right!  What I really like is the SPF that is in this product - if you are wearing a top that exposes your neck and chest you should be using sunscreen on those areas too but who ever remembers to do that? So by using this cream not only will it help me fix any damage already existing, it will also protect me from future damage, perfect!  And of course you can't beat the price!

Get it from your Avon rep 1-800-265-AVON, or if you are in the Montreal area - one of our readers is a rep there and would be happy to help you out, you can contact Stacey:
and of course online at
Biotherm Décolleté Laser Anti-Aging Corrective Serum - 50ml - $55 - It claims that it firms the appearance of skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, moisturizes and plumps skin as well as works on age spots.  If you like a lighter serum rather than a cream, you will like this one - and the serum seems to have a bit of shimmer to it so it looks really flattering on the skin.  It actually made my skin feel firmer and my skin looked smooth and moisturized so I would definitely repurchase this product.

StriVectin Neck Cream - 40ml - $113.99 - It claims to visibly firm and tighten the neck area, reduce the appearance of sagging "turkey neck", improve the look of neckline and décolletage, even out skin tone and discolourations.  I really wanted to like this just for the sake that the term "turkey neck" makes me laugh, I'd love to be able to tell you it's worth the money and did everything it said it would, but alas, it's just a jar of overpriced moisturizer - not even good moisturizer at that, it felt kind of weird on my skin, like it wasn't sinking in properly or something.  If you have a lot of money and like to spend it on overpriced cream that doesn't live up to it's claims, then by all means pick up a case of this stuff, otherwise save yourself the money and effort of rubbing it in, and buy 5 of the Avon ones or 2 of the Biotherm and consider it money much better spent!
