Time to take care of our décolleté with LIERAC Laboratoires

It is a fact that we all as women worry and put a lot of effort in taking care of our face, but what about the skin around our neck and décolleté? The décolleté is one of the first place to reveal the signs of aging and very much on show but unfortunately often neglected. 
Thankfully Lierac Laboratories, based on the combined aesthetic lifting + injection techniques created a sculpting gel-cream for both the neck and décolleté area.
The star complex of Lift Integral injects molybdenum polyphenols into the skin for lifting, flavonoid purple tulip for density recovery and the Hyalu-3 complex, which has an abrasive effect on the surface and in the background.
A reconstructive peptide acts on both fibroblasts and skin lipids while improving the durability of the skin and enhancing its natural toning.
The skin immediately regains its density and its durability is enhanced and all with a extremely feminine cool scent with delicious floral notes of white freesia, sambac jasmine, wild berries and velvet sandalwood.
While Lierac Lift Integral Neck & Décolleté Sculpting Lift Gel Cream is a firming care product that helps to restore volume to the décolletage. Inspired by lifting aesthetic procedures, this product aims to compensate for the skin's natural slackening. Mahogany extract creates a lifting effect in the relaxed areas of the skin, while purple tulip improves the constitution, quality and structure of the skin. The décolleté area recovers the lost volume and firmness, for a beautifully youthful appearance.
I tried both products over a period of 4 weeks and I have noticed my skin around the décolleté and neck area definetely feel firmer, more lifted and also a lot smoother. You really feel it from the first application that skin is tighter and comfortable. The cream-gel texture feels pleasant and fresh on skin with extracts from tulip and mahogany lift and firm skin. The Hyalu-3 concentrate provides an anti-ageing effect and freesia and jasmine sambac make for a delightful aroma.


Carry the Merry!

Nothing marks the beginning of the festive season as much as the return of the Starbucks Red Cups and the delicious Holiday drinks that take us into the happy pre-Christmas mood. The festive favorites Toffee Nut Latte and Gingerbread Latte are available again, and for the first time also as a vegan variant. As a brand new Holiday drink, the Truffle Deluxe Hot Chocolate enchants us. Yummy!

Kerstin Goutier-Sauer, Marketing Manager Starbucks Switzerland & Austria, says: 

“Our Red Cups have become synonymous with the festive season and we hope that customers will feel this Christmas spirit from the first sip. We look forward to offering a lot more great merchandise in addition to our festive favorites and a color changing reusable Red Cup for the Christmas season. A glittering tumbler or a sweet mug are always a wonderful gift idea. For coffee lovers, thanks to this year's Wholebean Christmas Blend you can take the soothing scents and pure Christmas feeling home."
