Some tried and tested new skincare products that are highly recommended


DERMATOPOIETIN Hand Rejuvenation Anti-aging Cream

I have tried these five products and I recommend them to readers.

Sublimage La Crème gives the delicate eye area some focus, targeting all the key signs of aging: crow’s feet, dark circles, puffiness, wrinkles and traces of sagging and lack of firmness.

The results derive from an exclusive Eye Complex ingredient, designed to restore skin’s elasticity and firmness, and the fruit and flower of vanilla planifolia from Madagascar.

It also contains Polyfractioned Active, an ultra-pure, ultra-powerful ingredient created through patented Chanel technology.

FAIRY Drops Platinum Mascara Film Type

Personally I find it quite challenging to rate an eye cream, but I like Sublimage La Crème because it gets absorbed fast and after application, I do find the lines under my eyes not that pronounced. I say this because when I apply concealer, it doesn’t gather so much in the crease; that to me is an indication that this eye cream is doing its job.

DermatoPoietin Hand Rejuvenation Anti-aging Cream contains Dermatopoietin and Hexadeltine as ingredients, which help skin renewal. The result is a visible reduction of the signs of skin aging and a younger look of your hands.

Anti-aging cream makes your hands soft and supple. The cream soaks well into skin and does not leave a greasy touch.

One can apply it as often as needed. Apply the cream on your hands and rub it gently. During the following month, use DermatoPoietin.

MAC Amplified Creme collection

Most people do forget to take care of their hands and it’s never too late!

Fairy Drops Platinum Mascara Film Type has been brought in from Japan. It has five kinds of treatment essences to repair eyelashes. It contains Squalane that softens, moisturizes and hydrates, and Panthenol that helps eyelashes retain moisture, adding volume and reducing split-ends.

First, comb eyelashes with eyelash brush. Curl up eyelashes with lash curler, then take out the the mascara brush. Let the eyelashes be bitten between the balls at the roots. Brush them upward for a curl.

The treatment has done wonders in opening up my eyes, especially since I have short lashes and do need that extra lift. But who doesn’t?

Eyelash enhancer

CHANEL Sublimage La Crème

New Peptin’s Eye Lash Enhancer promises visibly thicker and longer eyelashes and helps stimulate lash growth.

It contains sympeptide that helps boost the natural growth of eyelashes with clinical tests. It increases eyelash length by 25 percent after only two weeks of use.

Apply liberally as if you are just applying liquid eyeliner. Apply twice a day.

Since I started using New Peptin’s eye lash enhancer, my lashes seem to be thicker. I’m only on my first week and am actually excited and waiting for it to grow longer.

Perricone Vitamin C Ester has 15% concentration of Vitamin C. It is designed to boost collagen and make your skin brighter, firmer and smoother. It is noninvasive and is designed to rejuvenate the skin. Suppleness is restored, creating a visibly glowing, radiant complexion. It also restores sun-damaged skin and tightens and contours the appearance of the skin.

PERRICONE Vitamin C Ester

Since I’ve always loved using Vitamin C products on my skin, it didn’t take long before I tried this. What I didn’t know is that Vitamin C Ester is the best type of vitamin C since it not only works on the surface but gets absorbed by our skin. Therefore all those products that say vitamin C without ester just works superficially. My skin has never looked this good!

The MAC Amplified Creme collection always saves the day. It is colorful enough to stand out yet subtle enough to not be too over-the-top. Its creamy finish glides easily on the lips and moisturizes. And it has a youthful edge that’s less serious than the typical MAC red. Wear with light eyes to make your puckers pop.

Since I have a hard time looking for lipstick shades, I try new ones just because I have too but hardly use them after. Surprisingly the colors in this collection are all yummy and exciting. Best of all they seem to fit most skin tones. Hey I had my interns try them too! Go check their counter if you need some lippies. This is worth the testing!
