John Frieda new Volume Lift

John Frieda presents Volume Lift an ultra-light formula  hair and styling range to give body and volume to thin hair from the 1st use.
Optimism does us good! By cultivating positive thoughts and good mood, we can face challenges more easily  of our daily life: we radiate energy, courage, happiness and confidence, and in the end, it makes us more efficient.
John Frieda® Volume Lift energizes your hair - and your mood. Thin, flat hair becomes strong and soft, while giving it suppleness and volume. The resplendent shape of your hair will have a positive effect on your mood.
The care and styling products of the new John Frieda® Volume Lift range have been specially created to meet the needs of thin, flat hair. Shampoo, conditioner and spray treatment detangle and condition the hair, preparing it in the best way to hairstyles with wonderful volume. The dry shampoo, the mousse, hair spray and root booster give hair significantly more body and volume. Ultra light formulas with Air-Silk technology give the hair softness, suppleness and rebound without weighing them down. For a volume that feels as much as it can be seen.

„Thin hair is very vulnerable and brushing, coloring and
successive hairstyles quickly damage them. »Most care products
 weighs down the hair fiber, which does not help thin hair
which become even weaker and flat. They are also complicated to
style: when trying to give volume to thin hair with
bad products, we get a frozen effect that is not natural. The
Volume Lift range solves this problem thanks to its innovative 
and ultra light formulas and that detangles, nourishes and styles hair without 
becoming heavier. Thin hair then takes on a beautiful natural volume. "
Andreas Wild, John Frieda® Senior Stylist

I had the oppurtunity to try the new Volume Lift range and I was really happy with the results. The new volume lift products made my haircare routine much easier. The shampoo leaves my hair full and light at the same time with a fresh and clean fragrance. Hair really felt amazing, not greasy and the volume lasted for days! My absolute favorite product out of the range as to be the Volumizing Hairspray. It made styling really easy and I like the lift it gave to my hair. The scent is also amazing and for me a true must-have product!
If you need a real volume boost you will love the Volume Lift Root Boosting Thickening Spray, it boosts hair from the roots to create lightweight lift and lasting volume with added heat protection.

Caudalie new Resveratrol Lift with Vegan Collagen Booster

In women over 40, collagen and Hyaluronic acid production strongly decreases. Mathilde Thomas, who is always looking for the the most effective and natural solutions possible decided to continue working with the renowned Harvard Medical School and Dr. David Sinclar.
He was named from Time Magazine as "Guru of Longevity" and he is one of the greatest specialists in the world in fighting aging processes.
While generally in cosmetic products collagen of animal origin is used, Caudalie consciously choosed a vegan collagen booster to protect both skin and the environment.
Caudalie and Harvard Medical School jointly determined that the existing resveratrol + hyaluronic acid patent is twice as effective as retinol in the natural production of collagen. They decided to go one step further and to test an innovative combination of resveratrol + hyaluronic acid + vegan collagen booster. Together they applied for a new exclusive patent (FR 1555116).

Vegan Collagen Booster: firms and works at the same time on all layers of the skin
Natural Hyaluronic Acid: fills from within back on.
Resveratrol from the vines:Stimulates activity of the proteins for the youthfulness of the skin
The results are impressive: 5x more natural collagen production and 2x more hyaluronic acid production for firmer, plumper and visibly younger looking skin. A new patent has been created.

Thanks to the natural and sensory texture of the skin-thickening cashmere cream, the skin feels velvety soft, not greasy and extremely pleasant to the touch. A real cashmere feeling for the skin that also prevents premature aging in a natural way.

I had the pleasure to test the entire range and I was positively impressed. The new Resveratrol Lift goes to work on wrinkles and firming skin thanks to the effectiveness of its vegan collagen booster. 
Thanks to its patented combination of resveratrol, hyaluronic acid and vegan collagen booster, the Firming Cashmere Cream really corrects wrinkles, firms and replumps the skin. Face looks smoother, firmer and younger!

Composed with more than 97% natural origin and sensorial ingredients, this cream rich in phospholipids is as soft as cashmere on the skin. Skin is also left lightly fragranced with notes of basil, lemongrass, chamomile, thyme and orange blossom. The Resveratrol Lift Instant Firming Serum for me is an absolute must-have as it goes to work on restoring the complexion to a more youthful appearance. The serum contains the highest concentration of resveratrol as well as the patented complex of hyaluronic acid and vegan collagen reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while smoothing the contours. My favourite product from the range has to be the Firming Eye Gel Cream, thanks to its formula enriched with quinoa extracts helps fighting the signs of aging. Eyes look younger and fresher.

Big Bang Camo Yohji Yamamoto

 For 48 years, Yohji Yamamoto has stood for a timeless style that defies established ideas. While Yohji Yamamoto set the tone for the Big Bang GMT All Black, monochrome black set the tone for the new Big Bang Camo Yohji Yamamoto, the iconic textiles of the fashion designer and his bold use of patterns.

Tagged as anti-fashion, Yohji Yamamoto's creations are designed to raise questions, and all his collections contain this message. A master of contradiction and antagonism, Yohji Yamamoto sees the camouflage motif as the epitome of paradox, present and future clashing strikingly or blending seamlessly. As well as the initial message delivered by the camouflage print, he is reclaiming the values ​​behind the clothes. The values ​​of a rebellious spirit, a strong will, and cutting-edge individuality.

“The Big Bang, which Yamamoto designed together with Hublot, takes up our common codes and implements his camouflage motif in a very original way. The contours are superimposed on the sapphire dial and vulcanized on the bracelet - a technology that Hublot first introduced to the watch industry in 2019. » Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO Hublot

The Big Bang Camo Yohji Yamamoto appears in a limited edition of 200 copies. Its 45 mm case is made of matt black ceramic, and the sapphire dial has contours that overlap and form biomorphic speckled patterns, based on the designer's camouflage pattern, whose signature can be seen at 6 o'clock. In the Big Bang Camo Yohji Yamamoto, the manufacture caliber Unico beats with a power reserve of 72 hours.
