Expensive💰=Effective✅? For Chantecaille, my answer is...
Anti-aging is always my concern.The Chantecaille Diamond Series features anti-aging ingredients including hexapeptide and plant extracts. I've tried several products for a long time and some of them really surprised me. CHANTECAILLE - Bio Lifting Serum+
Anti-aging eye creams
CHANTECAILLE Face Mask
I’ve never thought my wrinkles would disappear until I tried these...😱
Every girl over the age of 25 worries about fine lines and wrinkles. I’d like to recommend three face creams that will smooth out wrinkles. They are all the creams that I often buy back. Erno Laszlo – Phelityl Day Lotion SPF 15 ERNO LASZLO - Phelityl Day Lotion SPF15 It is a lightweight day lotion, rich in vitamins is designed to balance the skin to stay hydrated, smooth, and refined. Also, it has broad-spectrum sun protectors, which help skin stay healthy, shielded from UV rays. This product has many loyal followers, who have been using it for many years. This is a wonderful, lightweight daytime hydrator. With this, I am perfectly hydrated, yet protected. Over time, I even noticed that my skin got less oily during the day. La prairie – Skin Caviar Luxe Cream la prairie - Skin Caviar Luxe Cream This product is a full-strength anti-aging cream. The texture is not too thick and is very easy for the skin to absorb. And it smells good, which makes me feel relax and comfortable. To ensure the purity of the cream is maintained, use the sleek spatula to swipe a small amount onto fingertips. Gently smooth over face, neck and décolleté with an outward and upward sweeping motion, avoiding eye area. Chantecaille - Bio Lifting Cream CHANTECAILLE - Bio Lifting Cream+ This product can be used in the morning and evening. It is suitable for all skin types, but is better for dry skin in cold seasons. The main effect is to tighten and lift the skin which is suitable for who have anti-ageing needs. After I had been using it for a while, my friends said that my skin was clearer and looked better than before. All three products can lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. You can choose the one that best suits your skin condition and have a try.

My glow on a date day comes from...
Tell me how you feel the night prior to a date with the one you are seeing, girls!! Excited, happy and a little bit nervous? (OMG I miss that kind of feeling). Certainly we would like to look the best in front of the ones we love. And I have found some skincare products that are capable of doing the tricks and preparing me to look glowy and confident the next day. I would share them with you all today! Just keep on reading~ ◇ Bio Lifting Serum+ from Chantecaille ( 1.0 oz $275) I know the products from Chantecaille are super expensive and that’s why I’ve saved them for these important occasions. But it certainly feels like magic and its instant effects are just amazing. The serum with powerful botanicals are made to smell super refreshing. I would use two large pumps and gentle and carefully massage it till it fully absorbs the night the before and the morning of the day, and then wait for some time before applying face creams. It just lifts your face and makes it look youthful! My skin felt tighter and smoother overnight. ◇ Vital Perfection Wrinklelift Cream from Shiseido (0.5oz $160) Forgive me but magic is indeed expensive. A pearl-sized amount of the cream would be enough to brighten your eye area. As eyes are the window to the soul. We certainly don’t want to be embarrassed by fine lines and wrinkles when you and your date are constantly having eye contact. A high amount of retinol inside is the secret, which helps to smooth the skin and improve its texture. ◇ Concentrated Targeted Anti-aging &anti-dark spot corrector from Noreva. (0.5 oz $30) This is for the dark spots and blemishes. With rucinol and Vitamin inside, it effectively brightens these spots and blemishes. One application and its effects can last 22 hours. It is especially useful for those newly formed spots. And since it’s quite affordable, I would recommend you to add this spot corrector in your routine and its long-term effects would amaze you!!
I use them together and here is what happened...😱
Chantecaille is one of my favorite skincare brands, which has been developing all products with unique high concentration of natural herbal essence. Its products have a light plant fragrance, let me feel comfortable and secure when I use them. Recently, I've found two products of Chantecaille that work really well, especially when they're mixed together. They areCHANTECAILLE - Bio Lifting Serum+ andCHANTECAILLE - Rose de Mai Face Oil. This serum is infused with powerful botanicals and the newest peptides, which can smooth the wrinkles and also protect against blue light pollution. When I used it in the first time, my skin clearly felt tighter and smoother overnight. This serum really absorbs quickly. I use it every night with a massage stick, and I can feel the essence fully absorbed into my skin. Moreover, my skin is very sensitive. After using this product, my skin condition has stabilized a lot, redness and allergies have decreased. Since I already have Biodynamic Lifting Serum, I don't pay much attention to the oil. However, my friend gave me a bottle of the rose oil as the birthday gift. This rose oil is more moist than the serum. There was a time when my skin was so dry that I tried to put a few drops of oil into the serum. I was so impressed with that attempt that I woke up the next day with very hydrated skin. Since then, I've often mixed the two products in autumn and winter. After using it for a while, my skin looked better and stayed hydrated throughout the day. It can also be used to repair damaged skin barriers after staying up late. If your budget is adequate, it is recommended that you buy both products and mix them together. I will also continue to buy back these two products.
🤔Do these high-end masks actually work? My answer is...
I have dry skin, and face mask is one of the most important skincare products for me since I need to hydrate my skin from time to time. I've been using two types of face masks regularly this year for different concerns, an SOS mask and healing mask for 2 to 3 times a week, 10 to 15 minutes each time. VALMONT - Prime Renewing Pack I've finished using a whole bottle of it but unfortunately, I still maintain that it's only an SOS rejuvenating mask that's not particularly gentle and which doesn't have a long-lasting effect. It feels great to use in summer as it's cooling and refreshing, and also it helps to regulate sebum secretion. You can give it a go if you have combination-oily skin, but I don't think it'll do much for dry skin. CHANTECAILLE - Jasmine and Lily Healing Mask Chantecaille Bio-Lifting Mask focuses on anti-aging while this healing mask focuses on moisturizing, soothing, and restoration. It's just a normal moisturizing mask that leaves your skin soft and tender when you have perfectly healthy skin. But if you're using it when you're peeling due to season-induced allergies or sunburn, it becomes a calming and restoration mask, so normally I'll dispense this healing mask and bring it with me when I'm out in the sun in summer. Let me know your thoughts on these products👇😘
Three Miracle Masks for Dry Skin
I live in a very dry climate, so depend on masks to restore facial moisture every day. Also, because my skin is sensitive, I attach great importance to the healing effect of facial masks. I'd like to recommend three of my favorite facial masks. Fresh - Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask #fresh - Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask[products]# This overnight cream is amazing. It does everything - moisturizes, firms and helps reduce the look of wrinkles. Even my grandma loves it, she said it keeps her 70 year old skin much younger looking. And it smells good, because of the composition of black tea. However, it is a slight bit sticky at first, so don't put it on and immediately lay on your side to sleep. Chantecaille - Jasmine Lily Healing Mask CHANTECAILLE - Jasmine and Lily Healing Mask This is my favorite first aid mask. Every time I go home after a day out in the sun, I use it to repair my skin. Also, it helps if you have allergies or acne. The main composition of this mask is flowers, included rose, jasmine and lily. So it is very soft to skin. It can be used as an alternative to night creams. Erno Laszlo – Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleep Mask ERNO LASZLO - Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleep Mask This is a sleep mask for people who like to stay up late. When I work late, I usually use it before I go to bed, because it always makes me look good the next day. This product has a big breakthrough in beauty sleep that it use NASA-inspired memory gel texture melts into your complexion replenishing the moisture skin. In a nutshell, the product is literally memory hydration and even the gel texture springs back into position after I've scooped out my dose for the night. I can feel it working. All three products are good for moisturizing and repairing. Worth every penny- and excited to add more.
Honestly, I Wasted $280 On Eye Products👎👎👎
I have dry skin. Anti-aging is important to me. I have wrinkles under my eyes. I bought two eye care products. They are very expensive, so I expected them to be good. However, here is what happened. CHANTECAILLE - Stress Repair Concentrate+ Eye Cream I've always loved using Chantecaille anti-aging skincare products and I've used a lot of their masks and facial creams. However, no matter how much a brand is raved about, there will be products from the brand that are bombs. In this case, it is their Stress Repair Concentrate+. This eye cream is really greasy and not moisturizing, leaving an oily shine on the skin around my eyes. It even balled up when I first applied it, so as a luxurious eye cream, it gets an 'F' for the user experience it offers. It doesn't offer results as obvious as the same series facial cream. Since it can't be easily absorbed, it's not really moisturizing and I felt that there was nothing special about it even after finishing the whole bottle. There are many more eye creams in the same price range which offer better results and user experience. VERSO - Skincare Super Eye Serum The second bomb for me is Verso's No. 5 Super Eye Serum, the main ingredient of which is Retinol 8. 30ml is more than enough for an eye serum, but unfortunately, I didn't finish using it. It has a lotion texture, is easily absorbed, and can be used as a serum primer, but it's really brutal on the skin. It literally burned the skin around my eyes when first applied, and even after switching to using it once every two days for one month, it still irritated a lot. I decided to give it up and announce that I'm just 8 times retinol intolerant. What eye cream or eye serum do you use? Help me find some good anti-aging eye products!❤❤
I've tried 3 high-end eye creams, BUT only 1 for me...😑
I have problems of fine lines, dark circles and puffy eyes, and I've tried three high-end eye creams, because I thought expensive products would work for me. However, I feel disappointed at two of them, and only one suits me. CHANTECAILLE - Stress Repair Concentrate+ Eye Cream This is my least favorite product among the Chantecaille Diamond Series because it's oily but not moisturizing, leaving an oil film on the skin around my eyes. It also balls up, doesn't feel great on the skin, and can't be easily absorbed. I won't repurchase it.😥 VALMONT - Elixir des Glaciers Vos Yeux Swiss Poly-Active Eye Regenerating Cream It has a lightweight texture and is easily absorbed but definitely not thin, providing a good balance between being lightweight and moisturizing. People with dry skin can use this alone in summer and maybe add a serum in fall and winter. After finishing a whole bottle, the fine line I have under one of my eyes has neither been enhanced nor reduced. I can't comment yet on its effect at reducing fine lines, but I could see it firming the skin around my eyes and reducing puffy eyes. II will repurchase this eye regenerating cream.👍 sisley - Paris Supremÿa Eyes at Night It has a texture similar to that of an eye cream, and it can be used as such. Just like a night facial serum, you'll wake up to improved skin after using this eye serum, and I noticed the skin around my eyes visibly firmer and brightened. However, I don't really like the design of this serum's bottle as the serum at the exposed pump opening dries up easily. I will not repurchase this product.😥 Could you recommend your fav eye cream to me?😘
plump skin thx 2 pixi 🥳 dreamy overnight oil 💤
• Pixi Overnight Retinol oil, a smoothing antioxidant oil with retinol (which smooths & refines), peptides (to firm & revitalize), and ceramide NP (which provides time-released moisture) • The packaging states that this oil helps restore skin plumpness, (which is what retinol is known to do by promoting collagen production), and helps improve the appearance of fine lines and pores, (again, one characteristic of retinol) 📝 • This antioxidant oil targets fine lines and enlarged pores; it can be used for any skin type – however, in my humble opinion, retinol products are likely not necessary if you’re under 30yo 💯😘 • The pixi retinol oil is silky and light. It smells soooo good, due to the Jasmine flower extract, which is the third ingredient. It has a slight yellow tint of color 🌼✨ • I decided to buy this from Target, one or two months after it was released (summer 2019). I think I used it for the first time two weeks later; to be honest, I was hesitant to begin using a retinol product (a) b/c I’m not 30 yet and (b) b/c I read that your body has to metabolize the retinol. That deterred me from using it immediately and it’s the main reason why I limit use of the pixi retinol oil to once per month. Note, this is, in part, because I have sensitive skin. Because it’s an OTC products, we don’t know exactly how much retinol is in this product (e.g. at or below 1%), but we do know that retinol is the 7th ingredient and retinyl palmitate is the 2nd ingredient (that’s for you nerdy folk 🤓) • I really really enjoy using this product, especially on nights when my skin feels super tired, dry, flaky, or irritated. Applying the retinol oil is relaxing, probably because of the Jasmine scent, which is very strong. Then, I KO and the next day my skin is visibly happier. I agree that this product appears to plump my skin and also appears to smooth my skin – both results are exactly why I tried this product! I would say this oil is very hydrating. • I don’t recommend this to pregnant or breastfeeding women ‼️ straight up ‼️ and I don’t recommend this to anyone under the age of 30, unless you’re doing it for science or for the love of skincare. I recommend this to people who experience facial texture or dryness/flakiness • I think the product is worth the $24, but I would recommend using a coupon, if purchasing at Target. I think this product was also worth the one mile walk to Target. • 5/5 because it helps my skin look dreamy overnight! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Today I wanted to share with you some amazing products from Fleur&Bee. The nectar of C rejuvenating vitamin c serum is definitely my favorite out of the three products. It's a lightweight serum packed with antioxidants and nourishing ingredients like pink grapefruit, clary sage, and chamomile. I love the consistency of this vitamin c serum, unlike most vitamin c serums that are tacky on the skin. This serum has a milky texture to it and doesn't feel sticky on the face at all but more nourishing and also hydrating. The creme da la Cream hydrating face cream also is a great product, it's thick and absorbs quickly onto the face. It's full of botanically sourced moisturizers and antioxidants. Plus, nourishing extras like acai, gotu kola and green tea. It doesn't have much of a scent to it which I don't mind at all. The last product is their Eyes eyes baby anti aging eye cream. I loved this eye cream, I'm a sucker for eye creams & I love finding good ones, and this one is excellent. It's fairly thick and spreads out nicely under the eye area. It feels lightweight once on the skin and doesn't look greasy at all. It has botanically sourced vitamins and antioxidants. Plus, nourishing extras like pomegranate, gotu kola, and dandelion and caffeine in it, which I love. These are all amazing quality ingredient skincare products right down to the lovely glass jar packaging. I highly recommend checking their skincare out. They are all super gentle and nourishing products. ♥️
you know how one of the best tips for dieting is to use a smaller dinner plate? well, I'm on a "skincare diet" lately where I try to minimize the products that I use so I'm placing ONLY the products I need on a small dinner plate lol. and it's surprisingly helpful in not making me feel overwhelmed. this trick doesn't work for me with food bc i just pile the food on higher, but it has worked for skincare! — ROUTINE: 1. exfoliate gently with kate somerville skincare 2. Fresh kombucha essence 3. Youth to the people maqui oil 4. Amorepacific youth preserve eye cream 5. Farmacy honeymoon glow 6. optional/extra: Youth to the people Glow Mask - I use this on days when I feel like my skin just needs an extra layer of hydration before going to bed and I leave it on overnight. Just listen to what your skin needs!
LANEIGE Time Freeze Essence, Eye Serum and Intensive Cream. Being a long-time user of the brand, I was thinking that now that I’m entering my 30s, it’s time to upgrade my skincare routines; moving from their brightening (White Plus Renew) to anti-aging skincare line, Time Freeze so I got these 3 products to try. Another reason would be, I really liked their Firming Sleeping Mask which was later added to the Time Freeze line becoming Time Freeze Firming Sleeping Mask even better than the Water Sleeping Mask. After incorporating them for about 3 weeks into my routine, my skin felt terribly uncomfortable as I had major breakouts along my jawline and that’s when I decided to move to another anti-aging skincare line from different brand. Overall, 2/5. The textures were really nice and easily applied on skin but maybe I can go back to this skincare line in my 40s as the formula is too intense for me right now.
🌟PETER THOMAS ROTH Age Defense Cream🌟
PETER THOMAS ROTH - Vital-E™ Microbiome Age Defense Cream About me 🤗 and the product 🌟Skin type/skin tone I have combination skin and my skin tone is warm ivory with a slight reddish discoloration in my cheeks 🧐 🌟Product function The product claims to repair and strengthen 💪🏼 the barrier on your skin to help with its natural microbiome and act as a shield that defends your skin from aging by utilizing ingredients such as gamma E antioxidants, ginger root extracts and, pre/pro-biotics. 🌟Texture/consistency The texture and consistency of the prodct is more on a the dry side and is waxy. However, once warmed up on your hands for a bit, the product is more spreadable. 🌟Packaging The packaging is a standard round container with a twist on cap that is easy to open and close. There is a protective plastic cap under the cap that prevents immediate access to the product if the cap is accidentally opened. Beauty story📖 🌟Overall experience I was extremely lucky and grateful 🥰to receive this product from @cherie through their box giveaway event last month and I have been using this product for about 2 weeks. I was super excited to get this product since I have been wanting to use PETERTHOMASROTH products but never bought any of their products since I wasnt sure if my sensitive skin would be fit for the product🤔. I didn't want to buy something so expensive and not be able to use it if my skin reacted negatively to it. I incorporated this product into my nightly routine and I noticed that a little goes a long way with this product since after I used it for the first time, the product would not absorb into my skin, leaving it feeling greasy. Using less helped the absorb better into my skin. 🌟Verdict The things that I like about this product is that it did make my skin look brighter🌟, slightly healthier, and plumper. However, I don't have wrinkles on my face (yet) so I did not get to test out if the product truly did what it claimed to do. Also, since my skin is more on the dry side, i felt like it was not hydrating enough when I compared it to the other face creams that I was originally using 😅. Another thing that I did not like about it is that on my cheeks (most sensitve areas on my face) red bumps formed after 2 uses! After 1 week, I did notice I got small breakouts on my forehead? 🌟Recommend?✅❎ I would recommend this to people who have wrinkles and/or struggle with dull tired skin since it does help brighten up the skinn and maybe help with wrinkles? I would not really reccomend this for people who have dry skin though since it does not really provide that much hydration. I would also caution sensitive skinned peeps since it caused me to become irritated. But everyones skin is different so maybe try it out if the claims draw you in more than the possibility of irritaition. 🌟Worth it?💰 This product retails for $75 for 50mL/1.7 fl oz. For me personally, I have products that are cheaper and work for me better so for me I feel like it is not worth it. I am absolutely going to contiue using it though but only for targeted areas that I know will not become irritated. So I feel that this product may be worth the time and money BUT make sure to do your research beforehand to make sure the ingredients wont cause you to become irritated if you have sensitive skin.

Sadly I didn’t see any great results. Did I like it? Sadly not, I tried it a few times and it just didn’t work for my skin. My skin became irritated after using it:( Would I recommend it? Maybe. It has great ingredients and isn’t expensive so it might be a great product for others! Worth it? For a 2oz bottle it’s $12 and for a 4oz bottle it’s $20.
