Becoming “Skin Intelligent” with Juliette Armand…

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa..

Don’t worry I’m not here to blind you with skin science, I’m here simply to share with you three skincare products that I’ve been sent to trial and review here on EAB.  This is a range of skincare by Juliette Armand. The company says:

“The Juliette Armand brand boasts 210 products and 40 treatments across the Elements, Skin Boosters and Sun Film ranges. Based on extensive and detailed scientific research, the brand creates innovative, non-invasive cosmetics that help clients to feel good in their own skin”

I have a serum, a moisturiser and an eye cream to share with you today. Firstly though, look at the bright orange and white packaging I feel it’s so clean-looking isn’t it! Let me tell you about the serum first.

This is the Chronos Therapy Hydra Antitox Serum by Juliette Armand.  Chronos Therapy is as the company says a “treatment that repairs marks that time may leave on the skin. The therapy prevents and repairs damage to skin over time without using injections” It’s deeply moisturising and anti-aging. It contains Matrixyl which is a peptide that stimulates collagen and helps the skin to repair, and there’s Vitamins A and E within the serum too helping to plump and hydrate the skin. It’s the pump-action delivery system that I love to see in a face product, giving the amount needed and there is no risk of contamination of the product inside. The pump is of the twist up type, which means there is no lid to keep faffing around with. When I first started to use the three products I was using 2 pumps worth of the serum after cleansing and toning. After a few days I noticed I was getting a few spots so I dropped to using just the 1 pump worth of product,  and after using for a month I haven’t been troubled by spots any more. I always apply serum by pressing it into my skin so it was the same when using this one too. It sinks beautifully into my skin, and without any stickiness, I just leave for a few minutes before applying moisturiser.

With Avocado Oil, Shea Butter and Vitamin E added to this product that Juliette Armand calls an  “Anti- Surgery System” that lifts and tightens and adds glow to the skin, to treat wrinkles by contraction of the facial muscles. I can actually feel a slight tingle on my face when I’ve applied it and not in an uncomfortable way either, it’s in fact fabulous to feel that a product is working. It’s not highly fragranced but it does smell absolutely delightful! After applying Skin Boosters Anti Wrinkle Cream I left it to do its work for a few minutes before applying my foundation, and my foundation went on beautifully. A super base for makeup, and my skin feels so hydrated at the same time too. After a month of using the combo of the Juliette Armand serum and anti wrinkle cream my skin is looking and feeling fabulous. I gave up smoking 10 months ago, and obviously cigarettes had left me with those horrid top lip wrinkles, but I am so happy to say that they are now less noticeable since using these products! I need some more, I am loving this! Anyone for eye cream? Oh here you are then!

Regular readers of my blog will probably know I love me an eye cream. AND I love this eye cream. The Juliette Armand Opsis Therapy Lift Anti – Wrinkle Eye Cream. Yes it did look frightening when I first saw the syringe, but it’s only packaging no needles at all! There’s that Matrixyl 3000 peptide within this product, that stimulates collagen, there’s also Vitamin E too. When the top of the syringe is pressed to release the product it releases enough to pop onto both eyes. I used it all around the orbital area in an upwards and outwards motion, also taking it onto my brow bone sweeping upwards as well. The “nib” of the applicator is meant to be used to massage the product onto the eye area, but to be honest I used my finger. I have been using this eye cream for just over a month now, and my eye area is looking pretty good for a 57-year-old who sleeps badly. I find that at the end of the day my under eyes are still feeling hydrated and wrinkles are so fine now. Concealer used to make my under eyes feel dry after a time, but not any longer. Some rich eye creams also can leave me with puffiness under the eyes and I’ve ended up with a bit of Milia too which was annoying, but I don’t have to worry with this beauty!

I have thoroughly enjoyed using my products from Juliette Armand, I think my favourite has got to be the eye cream. If you would like to check out the products for yourself the link is HERE.

Bio Essence 24K Gold Miracle Finisher

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

There’s a bright golden skincare range on the shelves in Superdrug right now, and I’ve been sent a product from Bio – Essence, which contains 24k GOLD! This is the 24k Gold Miracle Finisher.

The packaging itself is just a beauty to behold, all golden and bright! The product is delivered by a pump-action so that you can get the correct amount needed for your application. If you don’t like silicon-y feels on your skin, then this isn’t for you. But I don’t dislike that feeling so I have carried on using the Miracle Finisher.

It’s exactly what it says on the bottle it’s a “finisher” for your skin, the final step in your skincare routine before you apply your makeup. It’s enriched with 24K Bio-Gold, Bio Mineral Amino Acid and Bio Energy Fluid for a healthy glow, and protection for your skin from harmful pollutants. It’s a lovely base for makeup as it minimises the look of my large pores and seems to  mattify the skin making it feel soft and smooth, but due to the 24k gold it still gives my skin a slight glowy appearance. I’m not a huge fan of a glittery face, I like a matte finish, then add some glow later, so this has the right amount of glow for me. My lines and wrinkles did have a slight smoothed out appearance but not greatly. The only thing that I do have to find out though, is about applying SPF, do I apply it underneath the Finisher, if so is it going to inhibit the protection of my SPF? I’ll find out and get back to you.

I am enjoying using the Bio- Essence Miracle Finisher, which is available at Superdrug on the High Street or online, where right now you can save 1/3rd on selected Bio-Essence products HERE. I’d like to try a cleanser, toner and a moisturiser in a couple of weeks when I’m able to shop again, at the moment I’m on a “no buy” for a while.

Omorovicza Instant Perfection Serum…

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty..

 I was lucky enough to receive the Omorovicza Instant Perfection Serum to trial and then review here on my blog. I’ve been using it for a couple of months now so I thought I would come and share with you just exactly what I think.

One thing I adore about Omorovicza is their wonderful packaging, everything that I have had sent to me has been in beautiful frosted glass jars and bottles, apart from my Moor Cream Cleanser which was is a huge tube! This is no exception, the serum is in the frosted glass with a pump dispenser, which again I love, it gives the amount you need and it’s  hygienic too.

The Instant Perfection Serum is free from parabens, synthetic fragrance and colours. There is Narcissus stem cells within the serum to help brighten the skin, even out the skin tone and helps to sort out any sun damage too. There’s Hyaluronic acid which helps to plump up the skin and helps to retain moisture. All of the ingredients within the serum are made more potent by the Hungarian thermal water that is rich in minerals. It’s oil free so perfect for oily and combination skin types, but I need hydration for my skin and it gives me that too.

A lovely lightweight serum that takes care of my lines and even my large pores appear lessened after using. I always “press” a serum into my skin rather than massage it in, I find it works best that way. After applying, my skin does look very smooth hydrated and glowing, ready for the application of a moisturiser and makeup. I have however just used only a BB cream on top of the serum and it still keeps my skin hydrated during the day. A really lovely serum from Omorovicza HERE.

Heaven Skincare LIA Oil Serum.

Hey lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

I’m back to share with you my thoughts on the Heaven Skincare LIA Oil that was sent to me for review here on my blog.

As you can see the bottle is pretty special looking isn’t it? Inside the oil is pretty special too! The base oil ingredients are Organic Soya Bean, Carrot Oil, Jojoba, Rosehip, Grapeseed oils. Essential Oils packing a punch in the oil serum are Organic Rose Absolute, Neroli, Lavender and  Patchouli. It’s the fragrance of Lavender oil that hits me in the nose, my favourite floral smell ever, it’s just gorgeous. There is also Vitamins A and E within the oil serum too.

This intense oil serum is great for reducing redness and helps to calm Rosacea. I suffer from redness on my chin and cheeks, not too much but enough to make me want to conceal it when I go out, and since using the oil serum it has calmed down considerably. I’ve been using my oil mainly at night massaged into cleansed skin, then add my night cream or my Heaven Bee Venom mask on top. The following morning my skin is looking so radiant and glowing, and it’s not from hot flushes either! I have used my LIA oil serum during the day mixed into a moisturiser that’s from the high street to give the budget product more of a boost, and does it? Well yes it does. I have a high street Vitamin E day cream which I found to be unsuitable for my dry skin, it wasn’t moisturising enough, so I added some of the LIA oil Serum to it and now I can use it up because it’s working beautifully. There is absolutely no greasiness or slippery sticky skin from using the LIA oil, it sinks into the skin leaving it rejuvenated, nourished and pampered and very soft and smooth looking.

I’ve used the LIA oil serum in other ways too, massaged into my nails after removing polish to nourish them, and I also found it fantastic to smooth a little through the mid lengths of my hair! A gorgeous luxurious multi tasking oil serum! You can find the Heaven Skincare LIA Oil Serum on the website HERE.

HollyBerry Cosmetics Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C Serum…

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa!

I do love me some Vitamin C. I love it to drink, lemon squeezed into a mug of hot water with a sliver of fresh ginger first thing in the morning is so refreshing and gives me just the perk up I need. I love lime juice squeezed over my salad and I definitely love Vitamin C in my skincare too! So when HollyBerry Cosmetics asked me if I would like to try their Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin C Serum I immediately said yes please! I was actually on the look out for a new serum to include in my skincare so it came at just the right time.

hollyberryserum

A lovely natural and organic serum to fight the signs of premature aging. It comes in a bottle with a pipette dispenser, no parabens, no perfume or sulphates or alcohol and it’s not tested on animals. I used a couple of drops on my fingers at first and pressed it into my skin, including my under eye area, I noticed that it sank in right away, to take it down my neck I added a couple more drops. The combination of Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C did give my skin a fresher brighter and smoother appearance. The “number 11’s” between my eyebrows were plumped out and less noticeable. My under eye area was also a lot more smooth too, although I did feel I need more hydration, after a few moments my cheeks were feeling a little dry. I applied my usual day cream which helped give me back the moisture I needed.

This is a really lovely serum to use under your usual moisturiser/day cream, and if you use eye creams, use it under the eyes before applying that too. If you would like to check out HollyBerry Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin C Serum yourself  go HERE.

Until next time.
