The décolletage or décolleté - neck, chest and cleavage area - is one of the first to show signs of aging, particularly in women, yet it’s also one of the most neglected. Herbalife Décolletage Cream is described as “hydrating and revitalising, to help minimise fine lines and wrinkles and leave your skin feeling silky soft and smooth.”
I was asked to try this out as my own décolleté has suffered from both sun damage and the aging process. As a former sun worshipper, I struggled to get a tan in this area, which bugged me as it’s the most visible part of the body, besides the face. (While I don’t have a typical redhead’s pale, freckled skin colouring, my theory was that this part of my body didn’t tan as it was nearest to my red hair!) The only way it would tan would be if it burnt first, so that’s what I allowed to happen, regularly as a tan-crazed teenager. Please don’t make the same mistake as me if you’re young enough to learn from my stupidity.
The skin on the décolleté is particularly thin and delicate, which is why it’s extra vulnerable to damage - and prone to become lined and crêpey as we get older and/or abuse it like I did.
Admittedly I was cynical as to whether a cream could help undo this damage, but I was willing to give it a go…
“Herbalife’s Skin Activator™ range works to re-hydrate, nourish, firm and protect your skin. Fine lines and wrinkles, smoothness, clarity and luminosity may visibly improve in just a matter of weeks.”
The first time I applied this cream I was really taken aback by how luxurious it felt, not something that I expected from the brand or the simple packaging. It’s a really rich consistency which almost feels like 70% cream 30% gel to me.
It smells fresh and clean, sinks into the skin really quick and is deeply moisturising. I’ve been using it every night before bed for the past month and have to admit, I do see and feel some improvement in the skin tone in this area. I’ll continue to use it and will definitely stock up when it runs out - it’s also made me curious about the other products in this range, which I must admit I wouldn’t have considered beforehand.
The ingredients list is loooonng!
