is the perfect beauty booster for weakened skin. it’s ultra-concentrated formula enriched with mimosa tenuiflora extract, a mayan medicinal plant known for thousands of years for its repairing properties:
• reduces feelings of discomfort
• optimizes skin strength
• minimizes the appearance of redness
the skin forms a physical protective barrier. external aggressions (UV, cold temperatures, hard water, etc.) weaken this barrier. the skin becomes finer, more permeable and fragile. feelings of discomfort, rough skin, redness… the skin is weakened.
when I heard the part about minimizing the appearance of redness I knew that I had to try this product and was eagerly waiting for the parcel to arrive. and it did arrive and ever since I am using it day and night and all I need to do is mix a few drops of repair booster with my regular face cream. my skin feels very soft and relaxed after applying cream and booster and I hope to see an improvement on the long run. now I have to wait, apply and see.
known as the “skin tree” of the mayas, mimosa tenuiflora, or “tepezcohuite”, is a shrub found in central america, in mexico, in the state of chiapas, on a narrow strip of land located at an altitude of 800 – 1000 m. according to indian tradition, the powder obtained from the bark has magical properties and helps to heal wounds. the mexican earthquake of 1985 and the shortage of medicines that followed, brought this special tree’s therapeutic benefits back into the spotlight and it is now officially recognized as part of the country’s national heritage. thanks to its healing properties, mimosa tenuiflora has demonstrated an exceptional capacity to restore damaged epidermis. in cosmetics, the bark extract is used for its antibacterial, soothing and regenerating actions
so there are three new BOOSTERS on the market, an orange energy booster, the blue repair booster that I am using and a green detox booster. lets see what the other two do:
for fatigued skin. its highly concentrated formula enriched with ginseng extract, a legendary chinese medicinal plant known for thousands of years for its stimulating properties:
• tones and re – energizes your skin
• minimizes signs of fatigue
• revives its radiance
for congested skin. its ultra-concentrated formula enriched with green coffee extract, a plant from tropical africa high in caffeine and known for centuries for its detoxifying properties:
• revives radiance of a dull complexion
• detoxifies and plumps the skin
as I am already a fan of the masque creme a la rose noire by sisley I was very excited to see that the soon to be launched product was also containing black rose. I am very happy to be able to test this product before it is available in the stores and I have been using it for the last couple of weeks and I really really love it! I use this precious face oil every other day and night and I think I will even love it more in winter when my skin is dryer. It can be used alone or under the moisturizer day and/or night.
so what makes it so special?
Omega 3 fatty acids, plum oil, camelina oil, phyto squalane from olive oil, funnel alge, vitamine E, avocado extract, black bulgarian rose, magnolia
all these things help to calm, repair and maintain our skin.
yes, I was also laughing when I have seen this new product by Kérastase. BB CC everywhere and now also for the hair! As you know how curious I am of course I had to try it and see what it does. And let me tell you, this little bugger smells delicious and can be used on damp or dry hair, before and after sun exposure. its a very light texture that doesnt weigh down my fine hair but leaves a nice shine.
I have not used it that often yet, also because it was raining the last couple of days and it is meant to be used in the sun I will definitely use it in the future and will let you know if I am going to repurchase it or not. stay tuned! xx
