Tammy Fender Neroli & Orange Antioxidant Creme


I’ve made several references now (some thinly veiled, others decidedly less so) on ITG to the fact that I’m something of a hoarder, and that my bathroom is essentially a terrifying place full of bottles and tubs and tubes and other tricks of the beauty-editing trade clamoring for the same (limited) shelf space. So, when I first began my current relationship with Tammy Fender’s all-natural, ultra-holistic, made-with-care products—which has become, I'm not ashamed to tell you, a love affair—some of that clutter started to seem less and less necessary. Turns out, I am a one-woman woman (for the time being), and that woman's name is Tammy, and it's all because of her Antioxidant Creme.

The face cream has a loose, luxurious texture that, when lovingly massaged (remember Alec Baldwin in Glengarry Glen Ross? "Always Be Closing?" Well, Always Massage Lovingly) into the skin post-cleansing/exfoliating, significantly improves both its suppleness and overall moisture, without leaving you greasy. It absorbs quickly and leaves the skin smooth, relaxed, and refined. If you wear makeup every day, it’s the perfect base layer. If you don’t, you won’t look like you need to. The effect is like you’ve never had dry skin (or a blemish, for that matter) in your life and you get 8-10 hours of sleep every night and drink all the water you’re supposed to, all the time, and only ever have nice things to say about other people—all of which is to say, your skin looks fantastic.

Fender, a Palm Beach-based aesthetician with a cult following, calls this neroli- and orange-infused formula a “multi-vitamin-in-a-jar.” Aside from its anti-oxidant and collagen-stimulating benefits (due to ingredients such as lavender flowers, algae extract, carrot seed, the aforementioned neroli and sweet orange), the jar claims it will also bring ‘emotional and spiritual benefits’ and ‘a sense of overall well-being.' What I’m basically saying is: it might be magic? And more to the point, I think that I believe in magic. (Which is sort of timely, considering today might be the END OF DAYS; however the bumper sticker remains, 'If the Mayans were so good at predicting the future, wouldn't there still be Mayans?') Anyways, try it out—you'll believe in it, too. And if it really is the end of days, Tammy, I'm just glad I finally found you.

    I love, love, love Tammy Fender's Intensive Healing Balm. What an amazing array of products!

    Why is this stuff so expensive? :( I would like to try it, but 95.00 USD for a jar? Ugh!!! I am going to make my own organic skin care products. Ni kidding! I am sick of paying so high prices for organic skin care. And I am not even 100% sure if it is really organic! Anyway, thanks for the review!

    That sounds heavenly!

    Yikes that is super expensive, and unfortunately any meaningful antioxidant properties will quickly diminish each time you open the jar. And because water is used in the formulation there is an increased opportunity for mold or fungi to grow. Also the FDA banned collodial silver in over the counter medicines but it's used as a preservative in this creme. Although the silver is not ingested, I would hesitate to have it in a formulation when there are other, safer preservatives. I also believe it's not on accepted list of EU preservatives but I can't confirm. Overall the ingredient list has many safe, effective emollients, emulsifiers and stabilisers but I can't get past the collodial silver, jar packaging, and cost.

    Hello Alessandra, so I've been paying attention to ITG and I wondered whether you preferred the Tammy Fender cream or the Casanera products (from your previous post)? Which one would you splurge on? ;) Eva

    • ITGAlessandra

      Oh, Eva! That is a tough one! I think (and this is again, a very difficult decision for me): the Tammy Fender. However, I do believe you're right and it is the season to splurge (on oneself, or others). Let me know how it turns out! xx ATC

        Thanks! :) xx Eva
