L'Oreal Skin Genesis Daily Treatment

L'Oreal Skin Genesis Daily Treatment

I love what L’Oreal has done with color cosmetics, but had never used any of their skincare before. In the end, I was very impressed with this serum. I put it on before I put on my moisturizer and makeup in the morning and it made my skin feel like silk! It also allowed my makeup to go on more smoothly and kept the drier parts of my skin nice and moist. I dare say it almost gave me an airbrushed look once my makeup was on. I can breakout occasionally in my t-zone, but this product didn’t cause any irritation or oily patches. It’s a pricier drug store item, but definitely worth it (for a very good product) with the added advantage that a little (just two pumps or so) was needed for my entire face and neck, so a little goes a long way. As the weeks went on, I found that this gave me a smoother and clearer complexion. The serum goes on nicely, sinks right in. It does have a slight floral smell to me, but it didn’t last long. It absorbed quickly without a greasy or heavy feel. My skin looked "fresher" when I used this. I also liked the pump bottle that it comes in. It made it easy to pump out just the right amount, and was small enough for a travel bag. Note: When I didn’t have any hand cream handy I rubbed a little of the serum on my hands and after about five minutes, my skin was super baby soft!

For 20 years, Ellen Sirot’s ageless hands have earned her worldwide acclaim as the “supermodel of hands.” Her hands have appeared in countless advertising campaigns, every major fashion and beauty magazine and worked with the world’s top photographers. Now thanks to the new hand care line she has created, Ellen Sirot HAND PERFECTION, any one of us can have amazing skin on our hands too! From the first drop of Hand Perfection that I applied, my hands became noticeably softer and moisturized. The lotion is white and a medium weight - a cross between a cream and a lotion. The lotion had the perfect amount of slip, felt lightweight on my hands and had a very faint scent, where I picked up some evening primrose oil fragrance. The cream is also very concentrated, so I literally only needed the pea sized amount that it suggests on the tube directions. It provided a beautiful sheen to my hands (not greasy) and sank in within a minute or two. After using daily for several weeks, I noticed that the overall tone of my skin improved, some discolorations were lightening, my nails and cuticles had never looked better and they were always soft and smooth - even after washing! Ellen Sirot certainly knows what she is doing. This is a fantastic product, and the Ellen Sirot Hand Perfection Night Cream, which I used in conjunction with this, just made my hands look amazing. The only improvement I could see with the day cream would be the addition of an 30+ SPF which would help in the maintaining of the skin brightening and anti-aging effects. The purse size (about 4"in long) was a perfect size and also has a secure flip top dispenser.

Ah, sunscreen, so many choices…and so little time. For my face, I am very finicky about the texture, the smell, the staying power and also the convenience level of the packaging (must be travel/gym ready). This new Clarins sunscreen was a relief in a sea of sunscreen I have been testing for the last month or so. I love the little cylinder tube which is super portable. The formula itself is very lightweight and on the thin side, but so concentrated I didn’t need much to cover my face (so it is very long lasting). There is a light fragrance, which dissipated quickly. The lotion glided on my skin without a trace of stickiness, white cast, or oil. The finish was matte. I found that it was light enough to be layered over my favorite serum and under my liquid bronzer or tinted moisturizer that I tend to favor in the summer months. As a matter of fact, this is actually the perfect skin primer before makeup application. The lasting power was fantastic on days I was working, running around outside or actually sunning at the beach. I had no breakouts or irritation from the product and it didn’t run or melt on my skin. It also left my skin soft and moisturized without feeling oily, so on the weekends I would just wear this with a little mascara and lip color and I was good to go! This is a non-chemical sunscreen which many of you will also appreciate. It’s made from 100% minerals. Yes, this is another product that is indeed worth every penny and I will be stockpiling! Note: As an added bonus if you are like me and always around computer screens, Clarins has added protection against electromagnetic waves in this formula.

I have fallen in love with several of La Mer's products, but I was a little skeptical of this because I figured, "how can it really improve the results of my beloved Original La Mer cream?" I reminded myself of the old saying: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". But the box with the sea foam green was calling my name. After a few days, I decided to dive in... The Hydrating Infusion is a serum that is meant to hydrate skin and prepare it for the La Mer creams (original or gel-cream). I used about two pumps after cleansing and spread it between my hands before gently massaging into my face. It had a watery consistency with some weight to it, was smooth in texture, clear and spread easily. The fragrance was the classic la mer scent to me - slightly oceanic/citrusy, and did not linger very long on my skin. The serum sank into my skin very quickly, and I immediately felt a nice hydrating, "plumping" sensation on my skin. It didn't make my more oily spots greasier, and it hydrated the drier areas, like my cheeks nicely. The way I decided to test this product was to continue to use my La Mer original cream as usual, and see if there was improvement by layering it on top of the infusion. I have to say that La Mer has done it once again. After a week using both products together daily, my skin looked even more radiant than before, and my makeup even seemed to last longer. As I continued the regimen over several more weeks, I was even happier at how even my skin tone was, and how great my skin looked in the morning in particular. I didn't have any breakouts or irritations, and I found that because the infusion in so concentrated, two pumps in the am and pm was the perfect amount to get good coverage on my face, so the bottle definitely lasts several months. The packaging is great with the pump and shape of the bottle, so this is perfect for travel and the gym. Note: On very busy mornings I sometimes only had time to use the infusion, and my skin continued to look fantastic, glowing, and radiant with perfect hydration. This is another La Mer gem that made a significant difference in my skin and I now I won't be without it!"

I used this serum 2x day after cleansing. The serum is in a pump bottle, which makes it very hygienic, and I noted that a slight push of the top of the pump was all that was needed to cover my entire face. The texture felt slightly gelatinous and sticky on my fingers, but once I applied it to my face; I found that it soaked into my skin quickly and easily. My skin at once looked smooth, felt hydrated and my pores were reduced in the t-zone as well. This was the perfect start to applying my makeup, and became a great primer for me. The fragrance is also really pretty (a sweet ylang ylang fragrance), and dissipated after a few minutes. After several weeks of use, my skin really did have a brighter and more even toned appearance; my fine lines were softened, my skin never felt dry and my makeup always stayed looking fresh.

It was not greasy, and didn’t flake or ball up in the heat. I also found it very moisturizing for my drier areas of my face and small lines around my eyes, and even my legs and elbows. The tone and texture of my skin was fantastic after using this daily! I used this successfully on both my face and my body and I did not experience any irritation or break outs. For the face, it does leave a sheen however, so if you want a more matte look, then it will be necessary to blot it and then apply a little pressed or loose powder over it. I usually wore this during a recent vacation without much other makeup and didn’t mind the sheen. I also liked that the Sunblock didn’t leave a sticky or grayish cast to my skin (which I hate!). It was definitely water resistant, but after going in and out of the water several times I did reapply as most experts say is necessary. However, when I was home and used it for everyday wear I found that even through very hot days it stayed put and was effective. A little goes a long way with this product which also makes it a great buy.

Yes, I have found an eye cream that has seriously made me rethink the entire eye cream category. That’s because with Zelens, from the first moment I looked at the box knew I was going to have a special experience. The box actually looks like it’s been created for an expensive piece of jewelry or designer wallet, with its deep green and brown coloring. When I pulled the satin ribbon, a velvet pedestal slid out which the cream sits on. The jar is a beautiful frosted green glass with a silver medallion hanging from the side. Even better, the cream itself is pure luxury. I loved the texture, which is gel/cream hybrid that’s light and velvety. It also has a very nice fresh smell. I was very happy to also learn that over half of the ingredients are natural, such as Green Tea, and Vitamins A, and C. The results are what amazed me next. Within 1 day of using the eye cream I saw a marked difference in the puffiness around my eyes, the lines were completely smoothed, my skin was hydrated for the entire day and the whole area looked brighter. As much as I loved it, I do have to say that I preferred using this in the evenings before bed to in the mornings before my concealer, as sometimes I would get a little residue as a result of the mix. I used it without fail every day for several weeks, and have now completely fallen in love! Extra Info: This product line was created by Mr. Marko Lens, a plastic surgeon and international authority on skin cancer and skin aging. The packaging is designed by Anouska Hempel (who designed The Hempel Hotel and Blakes Hotel in London amongst others).

This is an excellent moisturizer at a fantastic price. After using this for several weeks, my skin, which had previously looked a little dull and had some creases and fine-lines, all but disappeared. In particular I saw a significant decrease in the lines around my mouth and eyes. The other benefits of using the Skin Genesis were much more even-toned and soft skin. The texture is smooth, light and silky and the smell is very pleasant. I also love that I got SPF protection without any sticky or filmy feel, which can sometimes happen in products with SPF in them. My skin was moisturized all day and I didn’t experience any breakouts. I would love to have this lotion for use in the summer months with a much higher SPF – perhaps it’s in the works!” G.L. Note: This moisturizer worked best with normal to dry skins. Those of you with VERY dry skin may not get enough moisture with this product.

The serum is full of what I’m always looking for in an anti-aging product. Powerful anti-oxidants, moisturizing agents as well as skin toning benefit. I used the “h” serum both morning and night after my cleansing routine and before my moisturizer for a little under a month and I must say that I am extremely impressed with what the serum has done so far. The “h” Serum reduced the discoloration on my forehead and cheek area. (This has been a troublesome area for me for the last few years, and this is the first product to really make a significant difference). I know that with continued use, this Serum will totally take care of these areas for me. In addition, my wrinkles have smoothed out and my skin feels smoother and even toned overall. Yes, I have even gotten a few compliments from people who have said my skin looks so young and have asked me what I’m “using” (I think they are hinting I’ve had Botox!). As for the rest of my face, it felt incredibly smooth, (almost like I used a micro-dermabrasion product every day)! This is luxury skin care product that is so incredible it is absolutely worth the price tag. I will not hesitate to continue to use this to continue to see the results that I have gotten in such a short time.
