Intensive Repair Serum

Recently, I discovered the 4protection Novigel 2% concentrate with 2% OM24® through a dear friend who recommended it for all sorts of skin concerns and it is truly a miracle product. Its active complex neutralizes free radicals, inhibits collagenase and repairs skin tissue – as proven by ETH study. It provides an intensive regeneration of skin changes and irritations, and reduces age spots and pimples. Furthermore, it promotes deep acting recovery of stressed skin. The oil free and pH-neutral formulation is also suitable for children. You can apply it to the skin as often as needed.

Novigel 2% Intensive Repair Serum is available for example at my favorite pharmacy at Paradeplatz in Zurich for CHF 38.90 (40ml).

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.
