During the past few months I have again diligently tested the novelties in terms of skin care of my favorite brands. There are again many great products, which I would like to bring you closer to today.
Guerlain – Abeille Royale Double R Serum
You like luxurious care? Then you should definitely take a closer look at the Abeille Royale Double R Renew & Repair Serum by Guerlain. It combines the Abeille Royale technology to correct visible signs of aging with a gentle exfoliation and thus most effectively counteracts the loss of tone and firmness, wrinkles, pale complexion, skin defects and enlarged pores. The serum contains as active ingredients the honey and royal jelly of black bees from the island of Ouessant. The gentle peeling with New Skin effect accelerates cell renewal in the epidermis without irritating the skin.
The Abeille Royale Double R Serum by Guerlain impresses in advance by its wonderful, luxurious fragrance. The two “phases” of the serum combine after getting out of the bottle. The serum can then be incorporated very well into the skin, it feels very light and does not greasy. Therefore, the serum is also good for oily skin. In particular, I like to apply it in the evenings before night care, but it also unfolds its effect under the make-up. The skin feels hydrated and relaxed after use, and the Abeille Royale Double R Serum immediately gives it a radiant complexion. The serum is very easy to dose and therefore very economical to use.
Glamglow – Starpotion Liquid Charcoal Clarifying Oil
Glamglow is known for its extraordinary and innovative products – no matter how much I love the face masks of Glamglow, that’s no secret either. The Starpotion Liquid Charcoal Clarifying Oil is a black oil which becomes transparent when applied. It clears the complexion with the help of antioxidants, vitamin C and salicylic acid to protect the skin from toxins and environmental influences. The contained aloe vera and turmeric nourish and nourish the skin.
I do not know any comparable products, I was all the more excited about the results and also the application of the Glamglow Starpotion Liquid Charcoal Clarifying Oil. As you can see takes the oil with a pipette and it looks black in advance. However, once it is spread on the skin it becomes transparent. I like to use the oil in the evening – so it can be undisturbed the whole night. Especially with impure oily skin, this oil is because it contains salicylic acid. I have the oil very well and the application is easy.
P.S. It can also be applied very well to a Glamglow mask for extra care.
Guerlain – Pore Minimizer
I already used the last drop of the Guerlain Pore Minimizer Treatment. Even after the first application, I realized that it can be wonderfully used as a primer replacement. It mattifies the skin wonderfully and the make-up is also very good. The Pore Minimizer narrows and minimizes pores instantly, visibly and long-lasting. The combination of clay, zinc and vegetable extract makes it possible to specifically correct all types of pores, freeing up clogged pores and allowing the skin to breathe. Apply the Pore Minimizer after cleansing and before make-up – you can also apply a serum before. I also really like the small packaging, which can be taken along well when traveling.
Clarins – Pore Control
And I’ve tested another pore serum, the Clarins Pore Control Serum. Plant active ingredients ensure a more even skin appearance here. Although this serum does not have quite as much matting effect as that of Guerlain, it combines well with the skin and feels light. The product did not irritate my skin. I prefer to wear it on my make-up days off. If I want a completely dull make-up finish, I use a primer. For the glowy look you can use it without an additional primer.
In particular, I like the light texture, it will definitely provide a great care in the summer without makeup.
Sisley – Soin Velours aux Fleurs de Safran Creme
One of Sisley’s core competencies lies in effective skin care. Sisley has once again proven this with the Soin Velours aux Fleurs de Saffron Cream. Especially in winter time, my skin has to fight against dryness. The Soin Velours aux Fleurs de Safran cream moisturizes the skin and reduces skin irritation. It also helps to restore the lipid content of the skin. This balances the skin. The cream is applied to the face and neck in the morning and evening, because it has a dual mode of action. During the day, the skin is protected and repaired at night.
I especially need to highlight the incredible texture of the cream. At first glance, the cream is very rich, this is it, but on the skin, the cream feels nourishing but not greasy or too lush. It is very easy to work into the skin and leaves no unpleasant greasy film – as is often the case with some rich cream’s. Sisley proves again the competence in textures of cream’s. The protective mechanism of the cream was especially noticeable in winter sports, when the skin was spared the negative influences of the cold. And even in the morning after getting up, the skin feels regenerated and recovered.
Worth mentioning are the highly concentrated active ingredients, in which Soins Velours aux Fleurs de Safran are in particular the following active substances:
- Buckwheat seed extract: protects the lipids from oxidation
- Shea butter: provides nutrients and regenerates
- Saffron flower extract: has a soothing effect
- Three oils with high levels of omega 6, 7, and 9 (cottonseed, macadamia, and sunflower): immediately enhance the skin’s protective hydrolipid film by biometrically balancing out dehydration
- Japanese purple grape extract: compensates for lipid deficiency and permanently binds water in the skin
- Extract of Padina pavonica: replenishes the water reserves in deeper skin layers
- Complex moisture-binding ingredients (wheat glucose derivative, vegetable glycerin and provitamin B5): compensates for dehydration immediately
There are also great Skin Care News to discover at Origins and of course I have tested the three new products in the past weeks as well.
Origins – Ginzing Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer
The Origins Ginzing Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer is specially designed for oily and combination skin. He has a very light gel-creamy texture. When you open the cream, the first thing that strikes you is the pleasant scent, because the cream smells fresh and fruity with citrus fruits and makes you feel good in the morning. The Ginzing Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer contains stimulating extract from the coffee bean, which leaves the skin looking fresh and radiant. The contained ginseng revitalises and restores the skin’s natural elasticity. For me a wonderful moisturizer for every day, which cares for the skin well.
Origins – Ginzing Eye on the Go
The Pendent to the Moisturizer is the Origins Ginzing Eye on the Go. It helps reduce puffiness around the eyes and diminishes dark circles. In turn, ginseng provides for an energy boost, which makes tired skin awake again. Coffee beans are effective against skin irritations and Magnolia extract prevents irritation that promotes dark circles under the eyes. The application is easy by using the sponge applicator and the light texture is feels so good on the skin. It also contains natural optical brighteners with mineral pearlescent pigments, which make tired eyes shine. Eye on the Go is suitable for quick and easy eye care for every morning – but also in between for extra care. The tube can also be very good in your handbag everywhere.
Origins – High-Potency Night-A-Mins Oil-Free Resurfacing Cream
Now to my absolute favorite one of the three novelties the High-Potency Night-A-Mins Oil-Free Resurfacing Cream by Origins. The cream is also suitable for oily and combination skin. It contains extract of the chestnut and AHAs, which are extracted from plants and fruits and gently exfoliate the skin. A blend of vitamins and minerals boosts the skin’s resilience so it can protect itself from harmful environmental influences. Barley extract and wheat extract hydrate the skin and the combination of essential oils of neroli, valerian and orange as well as vanilla extract give the night care of Origins its a pleasant scent that has a calming and relaxing effect. I apply the Night-A-Mins each evening after cleansing and my serum – in the next morning, the skin is super fresh again.
