I am SO glad that I am able to share this post with you guys today. It’s been a few weeks in the making and there were quite a few hiccups getting it ready for you. Believe it or not, I lost all of my product on the way home due to one of my luggages going missing. Oh the woes of travel. Actually it was more like a serious annoyances that may or may not have caused a mild meltdown.
About two and a half months ago, I attended the Loreal Luxe event here in Vancouver and was introduced to the power of Clarisonic and Biotherm. Loreal brought in a representative for each line they carried and took each of us through the steps of using the products, while educating us on the ingredients and benefits of using them. This is on of the most valuable experiences for someone who doesn’t know a lot about skincare. It is imperative that we all know what we are putting onto our skin and just as important to know the varieties of products because everyone is different. I have been learning a lot about products and have been experimenting with it quite a bit this year. It’s also something I have been taking very seriously since I started noticing the signs of aging on my skin.
What I loved the most about Biotherm Aquasource line was the level of moisture it has in each of their products. The Biotherm Aquasource Everplump is packed with a naturally occurring Hyaluronic Acid plumper that they have called Blue Hyaluron™. It’s derived from aquatic biology and is said to have powerful plumping and moisturizing effects on your skin. I decided I would try the Aquasource Everplump and the Biotherm Life Plankton Essence together to see how it affected my skin. I tested it out for a week and noticed that it drastically improved the moisture level and smoothness of my skin within one week of using the product every single night.
The Clarisonic is something my sister ALWAYS raved to me about, but something I hadn’t actually tried for myself until the Loreal event. I had always wanted to try it, but the price tag was a bit of a deterrent for me. I mean HOW different can it be than a standard facecloth right?! OMG was I wrong. I now get what all of the fuss was about and why it is TOTALLY worth the investment. Did you know it was originally developed for skin care professionals to use in treatments? No wonder it works so well. The Clarisonic uses a patented sonic technology works with skin’s natural elasticity. This allows it to really dig in and get your skin’s deepest impurities without causing any harsh exfoliation of your skin. This then leads to smaller pores and reduced fine lines, two areas of focus for me.
After a week of trying both the Clarisonic and my Biotherm Aquasource products for a week, I decided I loved them and wanted to share them with you! So what did I do? I brought them both along on fashion month with me and thought I’d share my exact routine with you in this blog post and in a YouTube video below.
My Fashion Week Skincare Routine
1. Remove makeup using Clarisonic Mia Fit and Clarisonic Sonic Radiance Cleanser
2. Rinse face with warm water
3. Apply Biotherm Life Plankton Essence all over skin like a lotion. You can do this using your hands like I do, or with a cotton pad!
4. Moisturize with Biotherm Aquasource Everplump
5. Wake up the next morning with a smile on your face because you look AMAZE!
PS. I also want to send out a huge thank you to the Biotherm & Clarisonic team for the opportunity to share these products with you today and for helping make this post happen! I couldn’t have done it without them.
