Similar to all the products created by French Laboratoires Filorga, the star ingredient in this serum is hyaluronic acid. This key anti-aging ingredient helps skin cling on to water since it has the ability to retain up to 1000 times its weight in water. I have used Hyal-Defence mainly to treat face dehydration due to the harsh winter we have had this year. I like how it imparts an important dose of moisture while providing a plumped and luminous effect.
The Body Shop Drops Of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask ($30/90ml)
First introduced in Korea, sleeping masks are finally arriving on the North America market. And what a luxurious concept it is. It's basically an ultra rich overnight cream which you apply in thick layer once a week, at the end your evening beauty routine (following your serum and moisturiser). You simply let the mask absorbed while you sleep and you'll wake up with a smooth and refreshed face. This sleeping mask contains Edelweiss stem cells, a protected plant, which grows in the Alps. The star ingredient offers many antioxidants properties, protects from the sun and increase collagen production.
Optimera Day Cream by Nerium ($138 for day & night cream/30ml each)
This is the only skincare in the world to be made with the patent-pending SAL-14, which contains botanical extracts such as Bidens pilosa and Centella asiatica. According to Nerium, this product helps to improve smoothness, texture, elasticity and to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. While I can't attest the to latter, I have noticed that my skin feels hydrated, radiant and more even when I use this day cream.
