“Firm, baby, firm, disco inferno!” Oh, sorry, that sudden outburst into song really shows my age, but, I am not ashamed. I couldn’t help myself.
Leave it to Bliss to come out with a super-charged, skin-renewing serum with an esthetician blend that instantly delivers a firming effect for the face and throat. Firm, Baby, Firm ($75.00) is a dual-action lifting and volumizing serum, and please note that I am still using their Fat Girl Six Pack ($38.00) and have repurchased their That’s Incredi-‘peel’! Spa-Resurfacing Glycolic Resurfacing Pads ($49.00 for 30 pads) twice already — as their products do what they say they do.
Bliss uses actual gardenia phyto stem cells that boosts elasticity and collagen; cell targeting peptides plump skin from the inside out (not vice-versa, thank goodness) and has a soothing lightweight aloe-based formula. The lavender acts as a soother and makes the product smell delightful. Lightly scented, of course. Each morning and evening you are encouraged to use just a few drops on both clean skin and smooth over face and throat. Then, follow with moisturizer.
For the secret Bliss technique of giving yourself an at-home facial — try these esthetician approved massage steps to stimulate, firm and tone facial muscles:
1. Apply several drops of firm, baby, firm onto clean skin and smooth over face and throat.
2. While skin is still moist from the serum, use four fingers of each hand to gently tap the skin, starting with your pinky finger and working your way towards the index finger.
3. Move the hands in a circular motion allowing each of the four fingers to tap the skin like playing a scale on the piano or flute, creating a fluttering motion on top of the skin.
4. Work the gentle-tapping motion from the neck up the jaw line to cheekbones and finish at the forehead.
