Why French Women Have Great Skin

French women have many enviable qualities. First, there’s that effortless chic-and-sexy they pull off – HOW? Then there’s the well-known fact that they seem to stay slim despite a diet consisting of 90% buttered croissants and Beaujolais Nouveau. What gives?

Even more disgustingly, they stay lovely and young-looking for ages. Maybe the French philosophy behind their skincare is to credit for this; French women have famously indulged their skin in luxurious products and treated it like handsewn lace for centuries.

Aixallia is one such example of why: it’s a new French organic skincare and cleansing brand made with proprietary ultra-pure water to eliminate all impurities. Only the French would think to worry about what water went into it! Continue reading Why French Women Have Great Skin

Alpessence Caviar Serum & Moisturizing Refining Mask Review

We’re getting fancy today, with caviar and precious minerals in our products. But it’s not just about what’s in your products – it’s also about how well they absorb.

The truth is, the absorption of essential ingredients is often tiny.
Study shows, 99% of bestselling Vitamin C serum gets wasted.
Much of your expensive skincare ingredients are wasted since most of the product just stays on the skin’s surface. What a ripoff!

That’s why Swiss brand Alpessence began its research based on the special absorption improving formula called Infusion-Plus™, which guarantees better and fast results of the skin care products.

Both gemstone ingredients and high-tech anti-aging ingredients are included, safe and highly effective.

The caviar serum is probably their most famous product and offers legendary firming and lifting — I can feel my skin tightening as I use it. Formulated to efficiently boost the absorption of powerful anti-aging ingredients, it seeps into my face almost instantaneously. It can diminish the sign of aging and ultimately reshape the appearance of face contours – yas, honey, yasss.
If you do have thick creams which is not easy absorbed, try to apply it mixed with the caviar serum (seriously!) or apply caviar serum before the cream. The brand claims that with Infusion Plus, whatever skin care products we apply afterward will be better absorbed by our skin.

Premium anti-aging ingredients in the serum such as Alpine rose stem cell and Caviar help to refine the fine lines, make skin plump and smooth.

The Moisturizing Refining Mask is another impressive product – it provides overnight care of your skin in refining the fine lines around eyes and lips, smoothing, refining pores and refreshing skin tone. I definitely feel I see less dullness in my skin since using it.

It’s recommended you use the mask at the end of your night routine as a sleeping mask and wash it off in the next morning. Though I use it more like a typical mask and wash it off in a bit, it’s quite comfortable and soothing and could definitely be worn to bed.

The semi-precious Malachite in the mask (that made me think of Sailor Moon in the video – not the first time that’s happened here) and nutrient-rich Alpine rose stem cell both help give skin the energy to renew itself, helping to reduce the appearance of dark tones.

Would you try these products? What are you using on your skin these days?

Thanks to Alpessence for sponsoring and providing products for review.

Aging sucks. Sometimes, we get desperate in our attempts to avoid it. There are lots of fancy-schmancy organic black algae and eagle spit-type ingredients floating around in skincare these days.

What your mug needs is good ol’ fashioned science. Hyaluronic acid (HA) has been skin’s best friend for a long time – check out why in my video, plus find out about a great product that uses it: Continue reading Back to (Skincare) Basics: Anaiti Advanced Age Defying Serum [VIDEO]

Anaiti Instant Wrinkle Smoothing Serum Review [VIDEO]

Well, this is it. The last year of my twenties. After this, it’s all over for me. Right?

No way – I refuse to resign myself to a life of old lady-dom. I will not Botox and filler my face into oblivion (but based on recent evidence, I may become a cat lady).

Check out my video review of Anaiti’s Instant Wrinkle Smoothing Serum, one of the many ways I’m avoiding getting lines on my face without resorting to more drastic methods: Continue reading Anaiti Instant Wrinkle Smoothing Serum Review [VIDEO]

Upgrade Your Man’s Grooming Routine [VIDEO]

I have some shocking, SHOCKING news for you:
Men, by and large, suck at cleaning themselves. Yep. It’s not their fault – they’re just born that way. (Of course, I know there are exceptions… like Tom Sandoval.)

They can’t all be Tom. Tom shaves. His forehead.

Luckily, there’s hope out there for men, but it starts with us. We have to convince them to use good products without inducing that easily-awoken fear of not being “manly”.

Virilem’s got some great solutions, as I share in my video below: Continue reading Upgrade Your Man’s Grooming Routine [VIDEO]
