STAGES of BEAUTY was created by a woman with a degree in Chemical & Biological Engineering from MIT. Passionate about skincare, she saw that few brands actually catered to all of our skin’s anti-aging needs throughout life.
Recognizing that age is the most important determinant of our skin’s needs, she began researching the topic in depth, hoping to better understand which products would be best suited for her skin.
After discovering all of the biological changes that happen to skin as we age (way beyond fine lines and wrinkles!), she realized how important it is for skincare products to accommodate all the changing needs of a woman’s skin, especially as she ages. Unable to find a product that catered to all of those needs, she decided to develop her own.
With this goal in mind, she created STAGES of BEAUTY: the first comprehensive line of anti-aging skincare products that are specifically formulated to meet all the needs of our skin at every (st)age:
20s: Constant exposure to the sun and our hectic lifestyles can lead to discoloration, bags, puffiness, and dullness. In our 20s, our main priority is to protect our skin and help it repair daily damage.
30s: Collagen and Elastin start to decline, causing fine lines and wrinkles. Our skin takes twice as long to regenerate, leading to a dull and uneven complexion. Our main priority in our 30s is to help stimulate the production of collagen and elastin and promote the natural exfoliation of our skin for an even and revitalized complexion.
40s: Our skin begins to thin and becomes noticeably dryer, leading to less glow and a drop in elasticity. There is also an increase in sensitivity, demonstrated by more freckles, sun spots, and spider veins. Our priority in our 40s is to hydrate and soothe our skin while evening tone and helping increase firmness and elasticity.
50s+: In our 50s, hormonal changes send our skin into overdrive. Our skin gets drier and thinner, wrinkles gain definition and our skin’s immunity drastically decreases. Our priority in our 50s is to stimulate collagen and elastin, provide the moisturization we need, and restore the skin’s natural immunity.
I am in my 20s and I was sent two Radiance Treatment Creams to try and review.
Packaging was secure and pretty. I like their attention to detail, how cute are those butterflies?
Shipping was fast.
I’ve been using the Radiance Treatment Cream for two months now and I definitely can see results. I am on my second bottle and still loving it.
I like the shape and size of the bottle, it gives you a secure grip and easy access to the good quality pump.
This treatment cream is formulated WITHOUT:
Lightweight. Thin consistency.
Moisturizing. Non-greasy. Absorbs quickly.
I broke out the first week I used the cream but I’m sure it was just my skin adjusting to a new skin care product. I just had one on my right cheek.
I am impressed on how lightweight and moisturizing this cream is.
I love that it is not greasy – a good base for my primer and foundation.
I did notice an improvement on my skin’s discoloration, I spent a full day at the beach last summer and this cream helped my skin recover from the sun exposure.
$74.99 for a 50ml face cream might be too much for some people but I think it’s a reasonable price. If we can spend the same amount on a makeup product, why not spend the same and invest on our skin?
