For your mom, granny and favorite aunt, Elizabeth Grant has powerful anti-aging skincare. The Collagen Re-inforce Snow Algae Neck Cream ($150.00 / 200 ml) is designed to improve the appearance of the décolleté area by making skin appear dense, lifted, tight and plump. With repeated use lines and wrinkles are less visible and the contours of the neck and chest begin to look smooth, hydrated and youthful.
