Hi, I'm Whitney! I am a middle of the pack runner who discovered the fun of triathlons in 2009. Join me in my adventures in life and training. I run with the Rush Running team and enjoy the fun that comes with such a supportive group of friends who understand what running means to me. I'm newly discovering road biking and the fun that it entails.

Thursday with Therapon

A few weeks ago, I attended a kick off party for a new product by Therapon called Theraderm Anti-Aging Lip Complex.  This is a lip product that works to reduce lines while also plumping your lips.  Part of the party included a mini-makeover and photo shoot for new head shots.  The party was hopefully one of the first of many get togethers for local bloggers in Northwest Arkansas.  I loved getting to meet and connect with other bloggers and try out a product that can benefit my fitness and professional life especially since aging has been on my mind lately!

Next week is my 34th birthday and I have definitely noticed fine lines and wrinkles over the last few years.  I'm all for products that can help me combat the signs of aging and retain a youthful vibrant appearance especially as an athlete.  I have noticed some side effects from my active lifestyle and all the time I spend outdoors in the sun and wind.  These activities zap my face of moisture and cause other unpleasant side effects like sun/wind burn:(  I also swim 4-5 days per week and the chlorine dries my skin out sooooo bad.  Silly side note...At my recent dermatologist appointment she commented on how dry my skin was...how embarrassing!  In the cold winter air, I especially notice dryness in my lips and plan to use this to help combat that.

I was excited to try out the Theraderm Lip Complex and the first thing I noticed was the scent.  It has a delicious smell that is just like orange creamsicle.  The product doesn't feel thick or heavy on your lips but gives a nice smooth texture to your lips once you've applied it.  The directions recommend that you use it in the morning and again at night for best results.  I didn't notice a huge change in plumpness since my lips seem full to begin with but overall I liked the smooth texture and shine on my lips. 

Beyond the product attributes, I was really impressed once I learned more about Therapon and that the products were developed by Dr. James Beckman who is a board-certified plastic surgeon and chemist.  He began his career working with burn victims and developed a restorative healing cream to help advance healing after surgery.  That product has led to a full line of skin care products that are grounded in bioscience to advance your skin's health. 

What do you think of the headshot that I received after my mini-makeover?  Obviously Therapon products are magic because I didn't even recognize myself! Make sure you check out their Facebook page for exciting specials including 25% off the Anti-Aging Lip Complex! It's a great product!
