My latest addiction….poop!


If you visit here often enough, you know I’m a practical girl. While I subscribe to Violet Grey – I’m just not interested in paying over $100 for a face cream unless I know it will absolutely work.

However, while working with a representative from Biopelle I was reintroduced to Tensage. I say ‘reintroduced’ because Tensage isn’t new. Made right here in Michigan, Tensage contains the excrement of Cryptomphalus Aspersa, a common garden snail. In the snail’s waste are growth factors that significantly reverse the signs of aging in as little as 12 weeks.

The Tensage line has a Biorepair Index Number that indicates the strength and percentage of SCA (secretion of Cryptomphalus Aspersa) to help you choose which product is best for your needs.

The most concentrated is the Intensive Serum 40. These ampules are best used after a skin treatment – using one ampule daily for one week and then one weekly. The total container will last one month and then you repeat the process. The regular Serum is the next step down in intensity, but don’t be fooled…it’s very good.

You can use the Tensage Advanced Cream Moisturizer either in the morning while using the ampules at night or on top of the ampules or serum if you feel too dry. Add the Eye Contour Cream (for tightening) or the Radiance Eye Cream (for brightening) for an extra boost around the eyes. Battling hormonal acne and aging? Try the Soothing Cream Moisturizer for a double whammy.

So what about me and my skin? I started a month ago with the Tensage Serum every night. My skin is brighter, tighter and the texture is noticeably improved. My plan is to either have a microdermabrasion or microneedling treatment (currently my favorite treatment) and start using the Tensage Intensive Serum 40.

So as Spring arrives and you’re working in the garden, resist the urge to wipe that snail trail on your skin (yuck – and besides they might be a charlatan and not the Cryptomphalus Aspersa!). The entire Tensage line can be found on Amazon, Dermstore or


Until next time….
