Just when it seemed that cosmeceuticals couldn’t get any more powerful, leave it to Clinique (of the Estée Lauder companies) to take it up a notch. In January, a press release revealed that Clinique would team up with pharmaceutical powerhouse Allergan — noted makers of Botox Cosmetic, Juvederm, as well as supplies for laser hair removal, microdermabrasion and laser skin resurfacing — to produce a new skin care line designed to be used before, during, and after in-office dermatologist care. Now that time has almost arrived - the line premieres in October 2008 - and I’m super psyched about it! According to the September 2008 issue of Vogue , on newsstands now, the products include a Probiotic Cleanser and Skin Conditioning Treatment designed to prime skin two weeks prior to an in-office procedure; a Recovery Week Complex designed to calm inflammation, hydrate, and minimize hyperpigmentation the weeks following a procedure; and the Optimizing Treatment Cream for before and after an in-office procedure.
I can’t wait to try some of these new products (and pass the information along to my readers!)
