La Prairie Skin Caviar Eye Lift Cream Review

the_caviar_collection_collection-dp-h2-en_US-1280By now, you know I love luxury skin care brands! I strongly feel that the more I try different brands the better I will be able to share my experiences with you.  There are many new products that are launched every month but today I am going to share an existing product from La Prairie.

1987 La Praire creates the first phenomenon by introducing the Skin Caviar, the encapsulated delivery system containing the Caviar Pearls.  20 years later, The Skin Caviar Eye Lift Cream was launched despite the many new eye creams available. This is still one of best seller in luxury brands.  This eye cream helps to target seven concerns around the eyes: fine lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness, loss of elasticity , puffiness, dark circle and dryness.

La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Lift Cream and spatula

This eye cream addresses the 3 areas:

1. Lifting and Firming : 3 dimensional protein network, firm, lift and tightens. Caviar extracts, biopolymer of sweet almond proteins, marines lifting complex , bio mimetic peptide and extracellular matrix tripeptide work together for maximum lifting  and firming.

2. Hydrating : Moisture complex imparts 24 hours hydration. Botanical root, rich in potassium, boosts hydration.

3. Brightening and Smoothing: Restorative algae extract. Inhibits the appearance of dark circles.

The texture feels rich but not heavy. Very little amount will allow you cover entire the eye area. I would suggest using this eye cream at night (as you should use the best products you have at night) allowing deeper penetration.

The packaging is beautiful. You will just have to watch my video to see their attention to details!

YSL Forever Youth Liberator Products Review

9.17_YSL-FYL-Landing-SiteUpdate-v1YSL Forever Youth Liberator Collection, doesn’t that name sounds an amazing? I am sure everyone on this planet wants a fountain of youth or long lasting beauty. Personally, I know if we take good care of our skin, body and mind, you will see a delay of aging process. Unfortunately, too many people don’t even spend time taking care their skin left alone taking care of their body and mind. So, if you want long lasting beauty you must do the following:

1. Believing in yourself: That’s right! It’s a very simple thing called believing in yourself will change everything in your life.

2. Spend time on your skin: If you spend less than 2 mintues to take care your skin, we have problem. I would recommend starting and ending your day with a cleanse, toner, moisturizer  SPF for day and masking at night.

3. Balance healthy life style: Eat lots green and dark color fruits for antioxidant and exercise!

Forever Youth Liberator collection contains anti aging ingredients call Glycanatif which will restore your skin’s youthful beauty. Your skin will look instantly more luminous and soft. Skin will feel more supple and visibly improve after one month of use.  As always, I purchased the trial set first, includes Cleansing Foam 0.7 oz. Night Cream 0.2 oz. Serum 1.0 oz and eye serum 0.5 oz. The Eye serum is a full size which costs $120 and the face serum also full size costs $155 but the kit I purchased is only $180 on their company website. The trail kit is not only a great deal but also great way to first experience the line.

Of all 4 products, I like the night cream the best! Simply because it doesn’t have too much perfume. I am very disappointed in the face serum for 2 reasons. The strong perfume scent and the medicine dropper does not work very well. The Eye serum however is smell little less fragranced and the dropper works a little better.

Guerlain Orchidee Imperiale

I get this question all the time, “What product should I get when I am trying “X” brand for the first time?” I never suggest to purchase a full line because it can be very pricey and it may not even work with your skin. I recommend to purchase a trial set or travel set before you invest too much and they usually will cost 50% less than full sizes.

I heard much buzz about Guerlain’s Orchidee Imperiale because out of the 30,000 different Orchidee in the words, only three were used in the skin care plus a new Gold Orchid  that regenerates cell life. How can I not try it 🙂 I purchased the Guerlain Orchidee Imperiale Voyage (travel set ) which includes the Exceptional Complete Care Cream 15ml/0.50fl, Exceptional Complete Care Longevity Concentrate 10ml/0.33oz, and Exceptional Complete Care Eye and Lip Cream 7ml/0.23oz.

1. Exceptional Complete Care Cream 1.7oz retailed at $445.00 is the 3rd generation in the line. Anytime a product goes through a major upgrade and receives great reviews, it is most likely selling very well. Something to consider when you are checking out new brands. This face cream will help revitalize and renew your skin giving you a younger look. The cream recovers skins density, firmness and elasticity.

2. Exceptional Complete Care Longevity Concentrate 1.0oz retailed at $498.00 works on all visible signs of aging quickly and intensely. The formula restores the skin to a more youthful look. The cream melts into the skin.

3. Exceptional Complete Care Eye and Lip Cream 0.5oz retailed at $200.00 enhanced with the revitalizing gold orchid technolgy which will reduce fine lines, puffiness and dark circle under the eyes. You can also use it around the lips! Honestly, any eye cream can be applied to the lips area.

So, check out a trial set or travel kit before investing in a new brand!

 

My Night Time Regimen SK-II LXP Collection

“What’s my night time regimen?” is the question I get asked a lot. My answer depends on my current skin conditions. Three conditions affect my night regiment 1. When I am traveling 2. After traveling and 3. When I am not traveling . Today, I want to share what I use at night when I am at home and not traveling.

SK-II LXP Collections
SK-II LXP Collections

SK-II LXP Collection is the most luxurious collection in SK-II. Why ? This collection contains 8x concentrate of Pitera and 15 ingredients plus more. I would say this collection is perfect for night treatment. After cleansing and toning my face, I will apply LXP Ultimate Revival Essence with cotton pads and press on my face for one minute or longer. This liquid Essence will help to promote a healthy skin barrier function, improve skin resilience and hydration. Sometimes, I will even use a pad cotton pad and saturate it with LXP Ultimate Revival Essence and use it as a mini mask pad for extra care. Next, I use the LXP Ultimate Revival Serum. This serum helps improve skin texture & softness and fights signs of aging. What I love about this serum is that it super hydrates your skin but does not make your skin oily. However, you should avoid delicate areas like the eyes (especially for sensitive eyes).

Best Luxury Eye Cream
Eye Cream

LXP Ultimate Perfecting Eye Cream is not available in Western hemisphere but I am lucky to have my mom bring it back from Japan. This eye cream texture so light and penetrates into the skin quickly. The worse thing that can happened to eye cream is for it to just sit on top of the skin.

The last step of my night treatment is LXP Ultimate Revival Cream. This luxurious moisturzer works to enhance skin’s vitality and strengthen skin’s moisture barrier while keeping your skin hydrated overnight. It contains the 15 ingredients, 8x concentrate of Pitera and Rose Absolute. You should first massage the cream in your hand and inhale the Rose Absolute then press upward on your skin. Here is a little tip for an emergency booster. You can apply a thicker layer of the cream and use it as a mask (no rubbing since it’s content is too rich and may clog pores!) for 3 minutes , wash it off with water, and apply moisturizer as usual.
