Like any skin-care fanatic, I had heard about “tech neck”—I’d written about it, rolled my eyes at it and ignored it—but nothing prepared me for the fateful day I would see the very deep, etched-in lines staring back at me on my own neck.
As a result, I (naturally) brought every neck cream and plumping serum out from the back of my medicine cabinet and started applying religiously, but no dice. In the middle of the hunt for a neck cream that would solve all of my problems, I came across BeautyBio R45 The Lift ($85) a three-phase treatment that delivers results you have to see to believe.
The product contains a trio of separate phases—three vials pop out for easy dispensing—numbered one through three based on concentration. Designed to be applied one by one instead of all at once, the idea is that by gradually increasing the strength of the product applied, the technology would act as a “corset” to tighten the neck area and create a smoother, less crepey surface over time.
So what’s in the miracle potion? A blend of vitamins A, E and F tackle crepey, uneven texture; lipids plump and tighten lines, and the star ingredient of spilanthes acmella (it’s been called the natural alternative to Botox) relaxes the effect of muscle contractions to decrease the look of wrinkles over time—perfect for people like me who stare down at a computer screen all day.
