Orlane Anagenese 25+ Morning Recovery Concentrate

I’m a sucker to skin care products that ‘wake my skin up’. I’m all about feeling rejuvenated and invigorated, especially in the morning. Lately I’ve been using the NEW Orlane Anagenese 25+ Morning Recovery Concentrate to get that re-gained radiance and glow effect. It is a very light and clear serum and feels like fresh water on my skin. Very gentle and soothing.

The star ingredients in Orlane’s Anagenese 25+ Morning Recovery Concentrate are a combination of pro cellular growth factors and specific peptide, Hibiscus seed extract, and Ginseng extract. All designed to activate the production of collagen and the synthesis of hyaluronic acid, entourages cell renewal and stimulates micro circulation.

All About The Eyes: Talika, SAMPAR & Orlane

All About The Eyes: Talika, SAMPAR & Orlane

A French friend of mine called me the other a Francophile. In translation it’s basically a person who has a strong interest in, or admiration for French culture. Hey, I learn everyday, and this one I’m adding to my vocabulary at once. What I know for sure is that I’m a person with a strong interest and love for French skincare!

I would like to share with you my list of French skincare lines that I absolutely love for my skin in general, and particularly my under eye. I believe there are some things in life that you need to invest, like good shoes, and a good eye cream!

Here it is, Marta’s favorite eye creams or eye treatments, oo la la..Eye Dream by Talika and Eye Therapy Patch by Talika. SAMPAR Eye Rule peptide & adenosine under eye cream. And, Orlane Absolute Radiance Lightbox or Orlane éclat absolu Lightbox.

Eye Dream by Talika ($55): Apply at night under eye, (I cheat and I also apply during the day, works & feels amazing, shu…). During sleep, the delicate skin around your eyes loses up to 50% of its moisture and is most biologically receptive to external hydration and nourishing ingredients. Eye Dream by Talika can help in keeping you under eye very nourished, hydrated, and refreshed. I love using Eye Dream after a long day of work (blogging that is:) or  a big night out. It immediately revives my tired eyes.

You might also like Eye Therapy Patch by Talika ($62): This patch is a pleasant, effective, natural and comfortable solution for combating wrinkles, circles and under-eye puffiness.

SAMPAR Eye Rule peptide & adenosine under eye cream ($78): Celebrity fans: Famous celebrity makeup artist, Matin, used it on Julianne Moore and Claire Danes. Jessica Szohr from Gossip Girls is also a fan.
