As much as I want to deny it, I am getting old. Each year that passes is a new wrinkle shows up on my face with a “gotcha” look.
I can’t stop time but I can try to slow things down. The Vichy Liftactiv Serum 10 with the Philosophy Help Me retinol night treatment is a match made in heaven.
Vichy Liftactiv Serum 10 Eyes and Lashes
Suitable for sensitive eyes
Since I wear contacts, I am constantly tugging on my eyes to put in and remove them. I’m also not the most gentle when it comes to removing my makeup, pulling and tugging away till all my mascara is removed.
I have noticed some fine lines under my eye which makeup just settles into and urg… I hate it! It looks horrible and seriously ages me.
This product is AMAZING! With 1 drop I am able to see results within 10 minutes. You read that right, 10 minutes! I get firmer, lifted eyes, wrinkles reduced and helps nourish my lashes.
I have noticed my lashes are stronger and mascara just glides on beautifully. My lashes are full and long… just wonderful!
I’ve already gone through one bottle – which lasts about 4 – 5 months (a little goes a long way!). I had to rush to the drug store to buy a new one as soon as I ran out.
- RHAMNOSE 10% 10 years of research. 7 international patents. Chosen over dozens of other anti-aging ingredients. Naturally derived and proven to boost skin rejuvenation on all surface layers.
- Hyaluronic Acid – Hydration and plumping effect to minimize the appearance of wrinkles.
- Ceramides – Derived from Haircare technology to strengthen and fortify eyelashes.
How to use:
- Massage a drop of serum onto your fingertips. (use after cleansing)
- Close your eyes and apply with light pressure on the whole eye contour area.
- Finish by smoothing the whole eye area, with eyes closed from the inner eye corner until the outer one including lashes.
Philosophy Help Me
An advanced, age-fighting night treatment featuring time-released retinol.
1.05 oz – $59 CAD
I have been using Help Me for little over a month and I’m slowly seeing changes within my skin. Although I don’t have many fine lines and wrinkles on my face to notice too much of a difference, I notice that my skin is smoother and more clear. It’s also helped me with my dark spots I have on my cheeks and also has helped reduce acne.
The retinol in help me is encapsulated in Microsponge Technology, which keeps the retinol stable in the cream, while allowing it to be released into the skin gradually, resulting in less irritation. Help Me is the winner of Allure magazine’s Editor’s Choice Best of Beauty Award for best anti-aging treatment.
How to use:
- After cleansing, I apply a pea size amount all over my face
- Massage into skin
- To reduce the risk of irritation, mix with moisturizer or argan oil – I personally have to reacted to it so i use as is and then apply my moisturizer on top
These two products together is a match made in heaven.
Try it out and let me know what you think.

It’s crazy how one day I feel like I’m a young, fresh faced 20-something year old and then poof! I look into the mirror and I don’t see the glowy, golden, tanned face looking back at me. I have dull, dry skin that lacks the healthy, youthful glow.
My all time favorite mask at the moment is Lush – Love Lettuce. Oh. My. Love! This leaves my skin beyond happy!
Lush – Love Lettuce:
Love Lettuce is Lush’s exfoliating ground almond mask that scoops up dirt, oil and debris and washes it all away. Exfoliation is an important part of good skincare, as it removes the buildup of dead skin that can clog your pores and cause impurities. Love Lettuce is a great example of how just a few ingredients can make a fresh, effective product for the skin.This amazing mask blends calming French lavender oil with seaweed and honey to nourish and soften skin, and to balance oily T-zone.
Price: $6.95 CAD
Available: In-Store only
This product must be refrigerated & used within a span of 2 weeks due to organic ingredients.
- Everyone loves lettuce: Love Lettuce is suitable for all skin types.
- You make me feel brand new: With scrubby ground almonds and absorbent kaolin clay to tighten pores, Love Lettuce leaves your face feeling incredibly fresh.
- Honey, please! A natural humectant (attracts and retains moisture), we use honey in Love Lettuce as a wonderful, gentle moisturizer.
After applying the mask (which is so FRESH feeling so it’s cold from being in the fridge) with a foundation brush, I like to relax & let the product just work it’s magic. I find that this product works best after a hot shower & my pores open up or when I am relaxing in the bath. When ready (around 10 minutes) I gently wash the product off, making small circular motions to exfoliate any dead skin. I begin using warm water & finish with cool water. After, my skin feels beautifully cleansed ready for my serum & moisturizer.
This product has been perfect. The next day my skin is so clear & ready for makeup!
I give this product 2 thumbs WAY up!

“My wife got sick. She was constantly nervous because of problems at work, personal life, her failures and problems with children.
She has lost 30 pounds and weighed about 90 pounds in her 35 years. She got very skinny, and was constantly crying. She was not a happy woman. She had suffered from continuing headaches, heart pain and jammed nerves in her back and ribs.
She did not sleep well, falling asleep only in the morning and got tired very quickly during the day. Our relationship was on the verge of break up.
Her beauty was leaving her somewhere, she had bags under her eyes, she was poking her head, and stopped taking care of herself. She refused to shoot the films and rejected any role.
I lost hope and thought that we’ll get divorced soon…But then I decided to act on it.
After all I’ve got the most beautiful woman on the earth.
She is the idol of more than half of men and women on earth, and I was the one allowed to fall asleep next to her and to hug her shoulders.
I began to pamper her with flowers, kisses and compliments. I surprised her and pleased her every minute. I gave her lots of gifts and lived just for her. I spoke in public only about her. I incorporated all themes in her direction. I praised her in front of her own and our mutual friends.
You won’t believe it, but she blossomed. She became even better than before. She gained weight, was no longer nervous and she loved me even more than ever. I had no clue that she CAN love that much. And then I realized one thing: The woman is the reflection of her man. If you love her to the point of madness, she will become it.“
