Two ways to perk up before Valentine's Day—if you're into that sort of thing, that is. Lierac's Bust Lift Tensor Spray and Bust Lift Massage Cream. The spray gives a "lift" effect with its skin-fortifying and smoothing bio-polymers that the company says "helps strengthen bust support." The massage cream is an anti-aging cream for the bust line and contains hazelnut extracts that helps restructure the bust's natural shape—some studies show that the oligopeptides increases collagen production by 89%—and Japanese mandarin orange extracts that helps reduce the appearance of brown spots and other skin discolorations. Both the spray and the cream leave a shimmery finish on the skin.
We're firm believers in treating your bosom with care—taking care to moisturize, tone, and nurture the skin you're in—and while breast-specific skincare products fall into a relative niche category, usually French, they're something worth investigating. In addition to Lierac products, we're personally really fond of Clarins' as well.
