For Your Mother’s Eyes Only

When you look in your mother’s eyes, you know that is the purest love you can find on this earth. Your mum is your first friend, your best friend, your forever friend. Sunday is Mother’s Day, time to appreciate the most amazing woman I’ll always admire, appreciate and love.

Personally speaking, I have a very deep bond with my mum. Her eyes looked after me all my life and this inspired me to today’s gifting idea. Why not surprise your mum with a great eye care product or / and a pair of sunglasses, telling her how thankful you are to have her in your life.

It was love at first sight because we have all been loving our mums the second we opened our eyes for the first time. Even if you cannot be with your mum physically like me due to the current worldwide crisis, you can still surprise her with a gift sent to her directly.

New LA MER Eye Concentrate

Personally speaking, when it comes to skincare, my eyes are the most challenging area to deal with as it consists of the most delicate skin on the face. Unfortunately, they show signs of aging first with the development of fine lines and wrinkles, dark circles, puffiness, loss of firmness, dryness, and uneven texture. Even if these signs are not apparent yet, most of the damage may already be done under the surface of the skin. So you might thank me for today’s post in a few years, however, with a little care, and the right approach, your eyes can remain radiant and vibrant.

There is a lot we can do to minimize the aging effects in the eye area. Environmental stressors and lifestyle play a huge part in the aging process, accelerating the rate of visible damage. Slowing down, even it is just for a few minutes during the day, play an important role. Furthermore, the use of a scientifically formulated eye cream can slow the aging process in the eye area as it will hydrate, brighten, firm, decrease puffiness, and smooth the skin’s texture. It is never too late (or too early) to care for this delicate area.

With triple the Concentrated Miracle Broth™, the newly formulated LA MER Eye Concentrate helps transform the delicate eye area with essential energy and healing hydration to reduce the look of dark circles, lines and wrinkles in 3 weeks. Lime Tea Concentrate, the antioxidant powerhouse, helps prevent future damage before it begins. The result? An enlightened new eye area — one that looks smoother, brighter and healthier than before.


At least twice daily, dab a small amount onto applicator and gently massage onto eye area for increased micro-circulation. My favorite personal hack? First, stow La Mer’s eye treatment applicator in the fridge for 3 to 5 minutes for a refreshing revamp of your go-to eye regimen. Secondly, carry the applicator and the Eye Concentrate with you, especially when you are travelling or busy with work. This fast-absorbing treatment works also perfectly over your make-up.

Gently sweep it over the eye area with the applicator for pure relaxation. It also helps me to concentrate during the day as rolling it under the eye area has almost a meditative sensation for me. This much needed hydration will boost your energy level while encouraging natural drainage.

Available now for CHF 270.00 (15ml).
Enjoy Complimentary Standard Shipping and two samples at checkout with every order. CLICK HERE TO SHOP THE LA MER EYE CONCENTRATE ONLINE.

Don’t forget – the eyes are the window to the soul, so better make them look your best.

YSL Forever Youth Liberator

YSL Forever

YSL Forver

“Chanel gave women freedom, Yves Saint Laurent gave them power”.

After Yves Saint Laurent’s launch of their new Forever Youth Liberator range in Great Britain, it has already become the most hyped skincare in a few days. Counters are taking pre-orders and the wait lists are huge. But what is the magic behind it?

A few years ago Yves Saint Laurent hit the skincare market running with a radical statement: “Youth is a state of mind that cannot live without science.”

The science behind it lies in the groundbreaking technology of Glycobiology. It’s been noted as the future in the medical field, the fruit of more than 100 years of research and recognized by 7 Nobel Prizes.

Naturally found in the skin, glycans plays a crucial role in cutaneous equilibrium. Their level diminishes over time, leading to the “locking” of the cells and blocking the youth process. YSL has identified an innovative combination of glycans, called Glycanactif™, which unlock the cells to reactivate their vital functions and liberate the youth potential at all levels of the skin. Dr. Bruno Bernard, a research fellow at L’Oréal says that “Skin glycans are cellular keys to youthfulnes.”

The proven results: Anti-wrinkle Lift. Plump. Radiance.
The skin is instantly more luminous  and wrinkles are less visible. The skin looks more plumped. With Forever Youth Liberator you can liberate youth within your skin from the age of 30.
