Creme De La Mer Moisturizing Soft Cream

Posted on

A revolutionary new formula that delivers the profound benefits of Crème de la Mer in a softer and smoother texture. All key ingredients are now infused by way of Moisturizing Spheres, an advanced absorption technology that allows for irritant-free penetration.

The cream contains the sea kelp-infused Miracle Broth, to sooth redness and replenish lost moisture, and the brand’s exclusive Lime Tea Extract, which is steeped in power anti-oxidant properties to neutralize free radicals, enabling the skin to focus on renewal and repair.

Moisturizing Spheres

The latest breakthrough in La Mer science, Moisturizing Spheres create the rich yet weightless texture of the Moisturizing Soft Cream. As the two phases of lipid ( Miracle Broth™ ) and water ( Lime Tea Extract™ ) are layered in between emollients, tiny multi-layered spheres are formed, creating the smooth, lightweight texture. These Moisturizing Spheres are held together by a thread of gentle cohesive bonds, creating the smooth, lightweight texture. As the bond breaks on application, the small spheres instantly penetrate the skin and are absorbed from top to bottom, delivering moisture deep into the skin. The Miracle Broth™ and Lime Tea Extract™ encapsulated within the multi-layered structure melt layer by layer to release powerful anti-oxidants and replenish moisture.

Vital Energy

The Moisturizing Soft Crème contains the Miracle Broth™, with its legendary powers of transformation, and gives skin the deep moisture it needs to renew itself. A healthy complexion has an electrical charge that allows water to be drawn into the skin, keeping it soft, smooth and hydrated. Skin is transformed, leaving it softer, looking firmer, virtually ageless. Renewed and energized, skin looks youthfully radiant.

Powerful Ingredients

Miracle Broth™

Born from the sea, the Miracle Broth™ lies at the heart of La Mer’s profound powers of transformation. Infused with nutrient-rich sea kelp and simple, pure ingredients including vitamins C, E, B12 and oils of citrus, eucalyptus & alfalfa, the Miracle Broth™ helps soothe irritation and calm the look of redness. Sensitivities appear soothed, and radiance is renewed.

Lime Tea Extract™

La Mer’s exclusive Lime Tea Extract™ is derived from hand peeled limes that undergo a careful extraction process. An original ingredient that Max Huber included in the first Crème de la Mer, the Lime Tea Extract™ is the perfect companion to the Miracle Broth™. Concentrated with powerful anti-oxidant properties, the Lime Tea Extract™ works to neutralize free radicals and help protect the skin from external assaults, allowing the skin to focus on renewal and repair.

Clinical testing has demonstrated a 71% immediate improvement in clarity, 70% immediate improvement in moisture & 65% improvement in visible lift after 8 weeks of usage.

Skin is transformed, leaving it softer, looking firmer, virtually ageless.

I love this new version of creme de La Mer as it’s lightweight yet utterly nourishing; Totally non greasy & non occlusive ( as compared to the original cdLM ). La Mer calls it another version of the cream, I say it’s the better version.

The best thing about this soft cream is actually it’s moisturizing spheres technology, which unlike the original cdLM, there’s no need to warm & rub the cream prior to application – I just slap & smear the buttery soft velvety cream on; The amazing texture of this soft cream even enable me to perform my facial massage ritual. My complexion is nourished, plumped & revitalized.

Luxurious cream with unprecedented results. Worth the upgrading & reformulation, worth the investment, IMO.

Chanel Coco Noir

” Before me, no one would have dared dressed in black ” Gabrielle Chanel

” After this, no one would have faith in Noir/Chanel ” London Pretty Boy.

That concludes my verdict on this spin-off type fragrance. If Coco is the grand madame ( elegant & mature ), and  Coco Mademoiselle the mistress ( bright & cheerful ); Coco Noir would be the illegal immigrant au pair !

I am utterly disgusted by Coco Noir. As an exclusive, reputable house of fragrance, Chanel should have done better – Well, at least the classy black bottle is a nice decorative piece, and you could use the juice for your potpourri in the powder room ( I mean toilet, as powder room would be too posh for Coco Noir’s standard )

Estee Lauder Perfectionist [CP+R] Wrinkle Lifting/Firming Serum

Posted on

This powerful anti-wrinkle serum is proven to significantly reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles with exceptional speed.

Supercharge the look of your skin.
Fast. Effective. With innovative CPR-75 Technology.

Instantly, Skin feels smooth, looks fresher, younger. 78% of women said it immediately smoothed the look of their lines and wrinkles.

Dramatic. Advanced.
CPR-75 Technology-helps Correct, Prevent and Reduce the look of serious lines and wrinkles.

Groundbreaking CPR-75 Technology addresses the look of lines and wrinkles due to its powerful composition of:

Artemia Extract: a zooplankton that is obtained via marine biotechnology and helps recharge skin’s natural energy.
Advanced Restructuring Protein: an advanced protein extracted from Whey that helps skin maximize its natural production of collagen and fibronectin.
Chlorella Vulgaris Extract: an extract of micro-algae that helps recharge skin’s natural cellular energy and supports optimal production of structural proteins.

NEW Perfectionist [CP+R] also includes:

Flexible Elastomer Technology: a technology that acts almost like a ‘ liquid bandage ’ to instantly fill-in and virtually “ immobilize ” the look of wrinkles. This technology helps reduce the depth and appearance of wrinkles by minimizing the stress and strain of daily movement.
Light Diffusion Optics: formulated for a broad range of skintones, these optics immediately diffuse and scatter light, blurring the look of lines and wrinkles. They also help neutralize sallowness, dark spots and discolorations, so that skin looks brighter, clearer and younger.
Wrinkle Lift Restructuring Peptides: a blend of peptides, proteins and amino acids, which in vitro testing shows, rapidly begins to amplify skin’s collagen and elastin production.

These powerful technologies and ingredients work synergistically to supercharge skin for a less lined, youthful look and help fight the future appearance of lines and wrinkles.

CP+R helps create a virtual “force field” against lines and wrinkles by supercharging your skin’s natural collagen-building power. It supports skin’s natural production of critical support proteins – Collagen, Laminin and Fibronectin – that give it the structure and strength to help fight the look of lines and wrinkles.

Day 1
• Instantly, the look of lines and wrinkles is reduced by 37%. Skin feels smooth, looks brighter, fresher and more plumped.
• In just 2 hours, Wrinkle Lift Restructuring Peptides™ kick-start natural collagen production, beginning the repair of the look of wrinkles from within, for younger looking skin.
Week 1
• CPR-75 Technology reinforces skin’s natural support structure and boosts collagen by an unprecedented 257% and fibronectin by 133% – establishing a new Estée Lauder scientific benchmark. Prominent wrinkles begin to look lifted away, a new level of skin perfection emerges and skin’s density is significantly improved with a younger, firmer and more lifted look.
Month 1
• In clinical testing, 96% of women showed a reduction in the look of lines and wrinkles. Skin reaches its full potential, reclaiming a firmer, re-densified look with new found suppleness and youthful buoyancy. Skin’s natural support structure is also fortified to help fight the look of future lines and wrinkles.

This is my favorite serum of the year. It primes & perfects my complexion like magic; Unlike its predecessor, CP+R doesn’t roll & peel when you apply liquid foundation following it. I find it actually helps to keep my skin matt. My complexion appears smoother, refined & revitalized.

Its benefits are more than skin deep, as I would like to testify. My fine lines are actually less noticeable & my skin feels plumper & firmer after 4 weeks of consecutive use. ( Yes, a huge commitment for a beauty junkie like myself, but when it works wonder, you simply can’t help! )

CP+R does to your skin what CPR does to cardiac arrest casualty. R for resuscitation, and dare I say resurrection?
