Elizabeth Grant Collagen Re‑Inforce 3D Multi‑Correction Anti‑Wrinkle Serum

3 Feb

Happy February, everyone!

I’m a fan of Elizabeth Grant skincare, especially their serums.

One of my favourites is the Collagen Re-Inforce 3D Multi-Correction Anti-Wrinkle Serum.

Collagen for the skin is a big deal these days, because it’s important for maintaining healthy, young looking skin. As you age, collagen production declines which (you guessed it) means looser skin, more wrinkles, and less elasticity.

The Collagen Re-Inforce 3D serum contains a combo of advanced actives, phyto-collagen, marine collagen, bio-advanced peptides, and Torricelumn. All of these ingredients help to preserve and encourage skin firmness on the skin.

If a serum has triple (3D) action, I’m all in. The Collagen Re-Inforce 3D serum has these performance benefits:

  • Helps to encourage a firmer looking skin
  • Helps to strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier, leaving it more resilient
  • Helps to protect the skin from environmental stress

The serum is also formulated with a time-released delivery system that infuses the skin with the ingredients where it needs them most. All you need to do is apply a small amount to your face and neck area before your moisturizer.

When I can, I also like to use a facial roller (like the jade roller in the photo) to remove toxins from the skin, decrease undereye bags, and calm inflammation.

If you use a jade or rose quartz roller, let me know if it works for you and how you use it. I’m always game to add another tool to my skin arsenal. 🙂

Modèle Plump & Sealed Lip Treatment

2 Jan

Happy New Year, everyone! 🥂 I hope this is a great year for all.

I received a sample of the Modèle Plump & Sealed lip treatment (courtesy of Farleyco) that I wanted to share with you.

I’m always game for a lip treatment, especially one with two products: a plumper and a lipstick sealer.

The Collagen Lip Treatment comes in an easy-to-use lipstick tube. It restores lip volume, reduces the signs of aging, and helps retain moisture. The lipstick is transparent and feels like a lip balm. I like this texture because it leaves my lips moisturized.

To get results with the Collagen Lip Treatment, apply it three times daily for the first 30 days or until you get the desired lip plumpness. After that, it’s just maintenance by applying it once or twice daily. You can also use it as a base for lipstick. 👄

The Lipstick Sealer eliminates feathering and bleeding of lipstick, while making lipstick last for 8 hours. The botanical formula is paraben free and not tested on animals. The product comes in glass tube packaging with a brush applicator. Once you apply it, it has a bit of a cooling effect.

For long-lasting effects, apply lipstick and blot lightly with a tissue. Then, apply two to four generous coats of the Lip Sealer, while keeping lips apart for 1 minute. No eating or drinking (or kissing) for 20 minutes.

In Canada, you can find the Modèle Plump & Sealed lip treatment at select Familiprix, Guardian, IDA, Jean Coutu, Pharma Plus, Pharmasave, Rexall, and Uniprix stores.

KORRES Pure Greek Olive Oil 3-in-1 Nourishing Oil

1 Nov

Hi beauties!

It’s been a while since I’ve written a post because life has been difficult lately.

I’m not sure whether I’ll pick up the pace here, but it’s good to get back to some kind of a routine when you’re going through the roller coaster that is the grieving process.

Face and body oils have been around for awhile now, and it makes sense to incorporate one into your skin routine if you’re looking to deeply hydrate your skin.

The KORRES Pure Greek Olive Oil 3-in-1 Nourishing Oil is extracted from the olive groves of Crete. It contains organic extra virgin olive oil, hemisqualane, crambe seed oil, and a blend of Vitamins E, F, and fatty acids.

This 3-in-1 (face/body/hair) oil is very light, absorbs quickly, and doesn’t leave a sticky residue. There’s a slight healthy sheen to the skin after application, which is a nice touch for the summer season.

The best feature of this anti-aging oil is that you can apply it from head to toe. In addition to using it as a traditional face oil, here are other unique applications:

  • Use as a primer before foundation for smoother application.
  • Apply to cuticles and nails to help restore them to health.
  • Moisturize the body after a shower (a little goes a long way).
  • Nourish the scalp and improve the look of breakage for hair ends (this is my favorite way to use it!).

One thing to keep in mind about this oil is that it does have a fairly strong scent. If you hate scented skincare, then the KORRES Greek Olive collection is not for you. I wish that KORRES would turn it down when it comes to scenting their skincare, but the benefits of the oil are still worth it to me.

All the best for a wonderful fall and holiday season! 🍁
