Diana Stalder’s DermaLift: Advanced Anti-Aging Technology

dermalift

It was when I turned 40 in September that I started noticing what used to be fine lines, begin to look more prominent than I would want my random facial lines to be. Then my husband dragged me to potential places where we can have our renewal of vows done on our 15th anniversary – it could have easily set me on to panic mode.

It was right around that time when I first tried Diana Stalder’s Dermalift. I haven’t tried anything like it before, so I really didn’t know what to expect. All I knew was I was set to look my best on our renewal of vows but there is no way I am going to do anything drastic or invasive.

What is Dermalift?

Diana Stalder Laser Treatment for Sunspots and Spider Veins Review

Beauty Treatment Review: Diana Stalder Laser Treatment for sun spots and spider veins.

Sun spot, age spot, melasma, however it gets called, it has the makings of us being self-conscious or just plain annoyed. I honestly switch from former to the latter. Who wants a blotchy skin anyway?!

Finally took that step to get my sunspots taken cared of at Diana Stalder in Megamall towards the end of June.

Skin Consultation

As soon as Dra. Anne took note of my sun spot skin concern, she headed on towards a series of questions on my lifestyle. Mainly pertaining to the frequency of sun exposure in my daily grind. I later appreciated how thorough she was before she jumped right on to a solution. I had a few options, one of which is chemical peeling, which provides the fastest result. But because I had a client call happening the next couple of days, there was no way it was feasible, since chemical peel will mean that I’m to visibly peel and I have to practically stay indoors and stay out of the sun. I’ve done this years ago and I know what it’s like. That takes it out of the question. After some deliberations, we agreed on laser treatment for my sun spots with TyRo White line to support the treatment. (more…)

The Olay Regenerist #MiracleDuo: Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence and Micro-sculpting Cream

P&G really made sure my mom and I were in for a treat when we got invited to a mother and daughter date at the Manila Pen. I also took home with me the Olay Regenerist Miracle Duo. I first tried Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream in 2013, I remember liking how the fine lines disappeared on my second week of use, I look forward how it will fare with the Olay Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence that’s apparently designed to jumpstart skin care regimen. It is used after toner but before moisturizer application.

GentleYag Laser Treatment by @SkinHouseBeauty and Laser Clinic

Last weekend, I finally got the chance to have some pampering time for myself. It was way overdue and I thought it might as well be a treatment that will jumpstart my skin improvement journey.

It was my first time to visit SkinHouse Beauty and Laser Clinic and I finally got to meet Gretha who explained to me the Gentle Yag Laser Treatment procedure that I was there for.

Laser skin tightening is a unique facial rejuvenation option that produces dramatic results. It effectively reduces the appearance of wrinkles and loose skin for a smoother and more youthful appearance. As gravity and the aging process naturally take place, the skin loses its elasticity and youthful appearance. This treatment may offer an alternative to, or help supplement a surgical facelift. It is a safe, effective way to lessen the effects of time.

Laser skin tightening helps with improving fine wrinkles and lines on the face without prolonged “downtime”. The effect is often referred to as non-invasive collagen remodeling.

I was actually choosing between Laser Hair Removal and Laser Skin Tightening.  I also wanted to do away with having to shave my underarms every so often, so the former was very tempting. But since I was blogging about this, I couldn’t bring myself to think I would have to post images of my pits. Haha! Besides, I also  would love to do something about my laugh lines that are threatening to further embed around my poor mouth prematurely.  Now that I think about it, I believe it’s a facial feature passed down to us because my mom’s laugh lines have been pretty prominent too even at her young age. Plus I kind of give in to laughing whenever. With homeschooling my corny and giggly 8 year old son for 4 years now, can you really blame me?  🙂

Trying out Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream

It wasn’t until recently that I have heard about Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream. After reading several reviews and that in a handful lot of times, it was actually compared to La Mer, I thought it was worth a try.

Olay Regenerist Cream

Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is said to be formulated with Olay’s most concentrated amino-peptide complex and hydrates to lift, firm and micro-sculpt the skin for younger-looking skin around the eyes, jawline and neck.

Ingredients:
Water; Glycerin; Isohexadecane; Niacinamide (Vitamin B3); Isopropyl Isostearate; Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate; Nylon-12; Dimethicone; Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5); Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E); Sodium Hyaluronate; Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4 (Amino-Peptide); Carnosine (Amino-Peptide); Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract); Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice; Soluble Collagen; Elastin; Allantoin; Stearyl Alcohol; Polyethylene; Cetyl Alcohol; Sodium Acrylates Copolymer; Behenyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Glucoside, Propulparaben, Soduum Hyaluronate, Stearic Acid, c12-14, Isoparaffin, Disodium EDTA, Citric Acid, C12-13 Pareth-3, Laureth-7, Elastin, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Sodium Hydroxide, Collagen, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Palmitoyl Pentepeptide-4

Truth be told, in a perfect world, I would have taken the paraben out of the ingredients. But I since I gather that the perfect anti-aging product that only contains all natural ingredients are yet to be formulated, we will have to make do with this. 😉

Nature Republic: The New (Korean) Make Up, Skin Care Brand in Town

Nature Republic

As my readers would have noticed by now, my preference, when it comes to skin care brands, are always towards the natural ones. I have used a few Korean brands to date but Nature Republic is by far, my favorite from the bunch. It is also considered one of the Korea’s fastest growing skin care and cosmetic brands.

Nature Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel

What I truly love about Nature Republic is that they are known for using only the best natural ingredients sourced from all over the world. This brand employs the latest technology to come up with the finest products unsurpassed by others.

Nature Republic Aqua Max Moisture

One of Nature Republic’s pride is the Super Aqua Max Line. This line is composed of super hydrating gel type creams formulated with seaweed extract and Sapporo water from Japan. The oily skin formula contains 30 kinds of pure maritime plants that deliver immediate hydrated purification with no sticky feeling. The dry skin formula feels like putting on a 24 hour hydration mask while the one for combination skin refreshes the face’s T-Zone and moisturizes the U-zone. It creates a thin layer on the face for protection against the environment and to maintain moisture.

The Super Aqua Max Soothing Balm comes in a convenient stick form. It is infused with sea water, enriched with minerals and leaves the skin hydrated for seamless make-up application. Use it before or after make-up application. It has a rich yet lightweight formula that continuously releases moisture, skin conditioners and nutrients throughout the day. Use it from head to toe for spot treatment of dry areas.

Collagen Dream Trial Kit

Please stay tuned for my review of Nature Republic’s Collagen Dream Kit. This is on queue and is up next as soon as my Kiehl’s Acai Damage Correcting Moisturizer runs out. I am pretty excited about this kit since its formula zeroes in on wrinkle fighting and whitening. It uses highly concentrated soluble collage water and SYNiorage, an active peptide that gives mature skin radiance and firmness. It has Acai Berry rich in Omega 3, 6, 9 and Vitamin E. It contains Orange Water from Italy which is abundant in vitamins and minerals.

Nature Republic Snail Therapy

Snail Therapy, anyone? Apparently, the Snail Therapy line of Nature Republic is its most premium line. It contains replicated snail mucus that provides skin whitening, restores tissue, fights wrinkles, lessens scarring and promotes overall skin recovery. It contains arbutin that enhances whitening and adenosine that reduces wrinkling, roughness and dryness. It has a clean, pleasant smell and light, creamy texture perfect for use during the day or night.
