All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

Hello beauty talk members, I see so many color threads here. I love to chat about luxury skincare products and procedures. I am addicted to trying new things and am always on the lookout for something new in skincare. 

 

Have a favorite luxury brand or product? 

Have a fav skin tool or treatment? Please share.

Curious about botox? Spa treatments and peels? let's share our experiences here .

 

We can also post good GWP's, and specials. Smiley Happy

I am a little bit older than you (like a decade), but I use Ole's Vitamin C serum followed by Farmacy's rise n' shine moisturizer in the morning.

 

At night, I wash, then follow with Farmacy's anti-aging serum and then Sunday Riley Bionic. I also have Good Genes and love what it does for discoloration and overall brightening. You can combine the two, which I do about once a week.

 

I do, however, have crazy dry skin, so Bionic and Farmacy's moisturizer has been my savior. My skin has never looked better. I have not had success with SR's Luna or Tidal, so some of this is trial and error (unfortunately). I do happen to love what is happening with these three brands in combination with one another, so you might also consider checking out the Farmacy line along with Ole and SR.

Has anyone here tried both the Odacite 'An Autumn on the World' serum and their new Colette vitamin C serum?

 

I think they both have high % of vitamin C, but was wondering how they might compare, as the Colette one is not easy to come by in Canada.

 

Thanks!

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

No I haven't but I'm soon in the market for another vitamin c serum. Is it 20% the highest that it's stable? It erks me to no end when labels aren't forthcoming on percentages. 

 

Perricone has been ok but I'm almost out and looking for a different one.

I'm not sure what the highest stable percentage is @dalidyli

 

@with the odacite they made a big deal that the Colette serum was the highest vit c percentage, but perhaps that's just within their own brand.

 

im also on the lookout for a vit c serum.  I have to be careful, because ones that are citrus derived tend to irritate my skin.

Not sure if you prefer a serum, but have you tried Revision Skincare? They make a 30% VitC.  lotion that works pretty well.

I've been using a ds of SkinCueticals Phloretin CF for the last two weeks in my morning routine. I'm really liking the brightness and glow I've been having. Probably a mixture of the weather changing as well but I think it's deserves a full size purchase. Anyone else try this? Thoughts?

 

I blind bought the Dr Dennis Gross clinical radiance booster using a hefty discount code so I figured why not. Haven't seen this mentioned much. Any thoughts?

I am 37 and starting to show signs of fine lines and dark circles and puffiness under my eyes. I am currently using the Peter Thomas Roth Unwrinkle turbo line and have been using it for a little over 2 months and seeing very minimal results. Any suggestions on a product line that will work without breaking my bank account?

I've tried many but I always cycle back to Caudalie Premier Cru eye cream. I have majorly sensitive eyes and dark circles and nothing works quite like it.

@liv545 just PM'ed you!

Re: All about Luxury skincare! Come in and chat about your skincare, treatments, tools and products

I would second @blackkitty2014's suggestion of the Shiseido eye masks.  I use them at least once a week and love the results.

 

That said, the luxury thread may not be the right place to ask for suggestions that won't break the bank, since luxury skincare tends to be pricy. Smiley Sad 

 

In a lower price range, I've had decent results from the Farmacy Eye Dew cream with lightening my dark circles.  I didn't think it was doing anything, but when I stopped using it I definitely noticed a difference.

Unfortunately I haven't seen very great results with any eye cream. I think the main thing is to keep hydrated with water. To reduce puffiness in the morning you can use a cooling eye gel and put it in the fridge. I don't really have any recommendations because I think ice cubes could even do the job.

 

My eye care:

Shiseido Benefiance, my second tub. It's good at night and keeps me moisturized.

Lilfox Miami Kalahari Eye Serum: Oil serum that absorbs pretty quickly. Can be used alone or underneath an eye cream

Kat Burki Eye serum: also very nice and light but hydrating.

Having trouble finding the right product for fine lines and dark circles around my eyes, been using the Peter Thomas Roth Turbo Unwrinkle for a little over 2 months with minimal results. Any recommendations?

Yes! the LILFOX Face Nectar- Made of Seabuck and Neroli worked wonders for my crows feet and dark circles. $75.00SEABUCK_NEROLI_SQUARE_1024x1024.jpg

For those interested in trying out Omorovicza, they have a special minis kit for only $40

 

 

Also I made a Cult Beauty Order:

The UK pricing actually works out cheaper. Cult beauty will take out the VAT for US shipping as well. The Cleansing balm is 40 pounds or $60 vs. $110 on Sephora, even with 15% off.

As of tonight, $15 GBP equals about $21 USD.   When I added in the $5.95 shipping charge, that saved $9 off of the US Nordstrom price.

Interesting.  They have great prices on Sachajuan products also.

I am constantly mixing it up between brands. I've really been enjoying Drunk Elephant Marula Oil, and I have several oils in my stash. TNB & Skinmedica Retinol products are my favorite tx. Mahalo & May Lindstrom both have really great balms. I find the May's a bit more oily and has more "slip", but both warm up nicely in the hands prior to application. Vi Derm make my HG Vit.C. Serum. It goes on really nicely and doesn't sting like a lot of vitamin c serum can. 

 

I've had a Vi Peel, and I really loved the results. I've noticed some people don't think it's that great, but my results were fantastic. 

 

I've also had Voluma under my eyes for my dark circles. OMG. This was seriously the best thing I could have done. No amount of creams,serums,etc were going  to correct what IMO were dark circles.  As well as Juvederm (almost 1 full syringe ) in my lips. The remainder went into my nano labial folds, and boy what a difference that made.

Does the Mahalo Indigo Balm has a really intense smell too? I've been using my sample of May's Blue Cocoon and its very heavy on the Frankincense but I'm still enjoying it.

Mahalo's does have a smell, but not as scented as ML. I personally like ML's smell a bit more, but it's all a matter of personal preference. =)

Yes it does, but the scent is sweeter.
