[My observations]

I love Bioglycolic Face Cleanser. The skin becomes deeply cleansed, soft and smooth. The glycolic acid, which is the key ingredient, does a really great job, so the product provides immediate results. It has to be massaged on dry skin, in morning and evening.

C-ESTA Face Serum has a light formula, which absorbs quickly. The scent is really pleasant. After cleansing the skin with the Bioglycolic Face Cleanser, this product leaves the skin even more smoother and softer. Has to be applied morning and evening to face, neck and behind the ears.

Bioglycolic Bioclear is a strong face lotion created to diminish many skin imperfections, such as: wrinkles, acne (scars), and discolorations. Has to be applied every night for the first week, then increasing to twice daily in second week, if required.

Hydration of the skin is always important and Transformation Face Cream provides a great hydration. Also, this cream includes anti-aging agents. It has a light texture and absorbs immediately.

Step after step, layer after layer, the skin is smoother and softer. Also, it becomes radiant immediately.

When using products with ingredients such as glycolic acid, it is very important to use sun protection products. I like Antioxidant Daily Face Protectant SPF 30 a lot. It has a light texture, absorbs quickly and has a beautiful scent. Has to be applied liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure. If you use it on a beach, reapply after 80 minutes of swimming or sweating, immediately after towel drying and at least every 2 hours.

 

I really love this system, because it provides measured and fast results. Actually, after just one application, my skin looked better. Smooth, soft and radiant. After every new treatment, it looked more beautiful. After some time of using it, the appearance of skin texture was smoothed, pores looked better and fine lines were diminished. Pores were deeply cleansed, because this system provides exfoliation. All in all, it provided healthier, brighter and radiant look to my skin.

I used these products together, as a system, but I also tried them alone. It is really great that they provide good results, even if you use them alone.

 

Jan Marini products are available on DermacareDirect.co.uk.

Visha SkinCare claims:

Advanced Correcting Serum with Illuminotex™ is an all in one anti-aging power serum designed to treat fine lines and wrinkles, fade sun spots and correct uneven skin texture that occurs from UV damage. This hydroquinone-free formula can be used to fade dark pigmentation left from skin damage, blemishes or scars. The exfoliants in the formula help decrease acne formation, and stimulate collagen production to firm the skin as well as correct hyperpigmentation; this further aids in the prevention of additional premature signs of aging. The antioxidants in the formula help protect skin cells from free radical damage. The formula is fragrance and paraben free.

Advanced Correcting Serum is everything you could want for your skin in one bottle.

 

Directions of use:

Cleanse and dry skin before use. Dispense 2-3 pumps of serum into the palm of your hand and spread evenly over the face and neck (and/or scar) two times a day. This product must be used with sunscreen of SPF 30 during the day to see maximum results in 10 weeks.

[My observations]

Advanced Correcting Serum has a very light, watery texture. After application, it is quickly absorbed into the skin. It is not enough moisturizing, so I’ve used it in combination with a moisturizer.

Its task is to remove wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and scars and to prevent acne formation.

It has served me as an anti-aging product, and it has served me well. It was effective: small imperfections have disappeared quickly and the skin has became radiant. Pores were purified, fine lines decreased, skin became brighter and radiant. It always looked fresh and rested. I like this serum, and after the summer I plan to use it again.

Be sure to use this product in combination with sunscreen of SPF 30, and I recommend even higher SPF, because it will provide you a better protection, especially when it comes to UVA rays.

My opinion

When I saw the ingredients list and read the official story related to this cream, I knew that I would like it. But it turned out even better than I expected.

It is made from excellent ingredients, which are almost all natural and, in the given combination, the crème does everything what skin needs. Fruit acids remove irregularities, and dull skin is renewed overnight. Skin is soft and smooth in the morning. The results are visible very quickly, and the more that the crème is used, the skin is lighter, brighter and generally fresher. Fruit acids do their job, but it should be noted that this is not an aggressive product. It is efficient in a subtle way.

In addition to renewing, the skin gets nourished as well. At the same time, the product deeply hydrates the skin. This is actually 3 in 1 product, so it is not needed to use additional products. Except ingredients, this triple action makes Overnight Fruit Lift crème special. I have normal skin type and, during use, the crème has not caused any irritation.

A truly impressive product that gives the skin everything it needs with the help of carefully selected ingredients. Improves quality and appearance of the skin. Skin literally becomes addicted to it.

L’OCCITANE had invited beauty bloggers to a mini face treatment, so I went to their Korzo shop in Rijeka.

In the first two pictures you can see what products were used for the care of my skin. Most products are from the Brightening line.

I really enjoyed the treatment, because all used products blended perfectly into my skin. All products caught my attention, but especially: Immortelle Divine Lotion, Immortelle Brightening Essence and Immortelle Brightening Moisturiser. They are a right match for my skin, have a nice scent and feel great on my skin.

The treatment was completed with BB cream which looks like it’s made for me. Its shade and texture are perfect for me, so I’m really glad I got it . It has a lightweight formula as a tinted moisturizer and yet offers some coverage. I prefer such products, especially in the spring. The goodie bag contained a Almond Firming & Beautifying Milk Veil as well. It contains micro-pearls, so it’s great for these hot days. I brought home a pile of samples too, so I can become familiar with L’OCCITANE products.

Also, hydration of my skin was measured and I was delighted with the result, because it confirmed me that I do something right when it comes to skin care. Optimal hydration is the most important for keeping the skin beautiful and healthy, so I’ll continue to use such products, even more intensively.
