Skin Renewed With Juliette Armand

Would you like to wake up every morning and have that “exfoliated the night before” feeling that gives your skin natural radiance and softness? Well, we can’t exfoliate every night for fear of over exfoliation but I might have the next best thing sitting in my bathroom. Having been using the Juliette Armand Elements 6% AHA fluid for the past few months I am both in awe and at the same time complete shock of how different my skin looks, feels and responds to my products since including this fluid as part of my night time skincare regime.

Right – 30ml for home use

This is a multi-action fluid, to be used on your skin after cleansing in the evening which boosts the natural regeneration process. It contains 6% AHA (glycolic acid, lactic acid), sodium hyaluronate, aloe vera, cantella and because of its very active (although minimal) ingredients this product is not needed to be applied in excess. This means that my little bottle of 30ml is going to last me for at least another couple of months. Every night I dispense a small pump and spread the fluid over my cleansed face. It smells divine – like grapefruit! Let the fluid absorb (my skin just soaks it up) and then follow it with my bedtime moisturiser. It is important when working with active ingredients in your skincare to make sure that you wear the sufficient SPF coverage everyday – even when you don’t think that you will be in the sun. Prevention is better than cure, ladies!

I did not take before and after pictures because I was sceptical about the product being so active and that my skin would not like it, quite the contrary, my skin LOVES it and cannot get enough of it…

You can get your best face to put forward with Elements 6% AHA fluid for R590.00. Juliette Armand is distributed by Poise Brands and is available at selected salons and spas. Visit their website here ; Facebook , and follow them on Twitter @Juliette_Armand.

Summer Skin Sorted

Having just come back from a whirlwind overseas holiday to the amazing Italy and leaving the winter behind I was petrified of my lily white skin getting burnt to a crisp in the beautiful Rome, Tuscan and Milan heat. Fortunately, before I left, I got my paws on a product which I immediately thought would be amazing in preventing any burns, to my face anyway.

Meet Juliet (Armand SUN FILM 30), the other half to my Rome(-o) trip of Italy. The saviour of my skin. My new love and must-have product for summer 2014.

Meet Juliet (Armand SUN FILM 30), the other half to my Rome(-o) trip of Italy. The saviour of my skin. My new love and must-have product for summer 2014.

This little gem is from Juliette Armand, the Greek brand who focuses on your skin mood, rather than needs. The Sun Film Gel 30 boasts guaranteed protected against UVA and UVB rays to the highest standard, all while providing a slight tint to the skin (which lasts, doesn’t rub off or disappear a few hours to applying it) to ensure that your face is flawless.This product, was right up my alley for skin mood as it was in the mood for relaxation, minimal makeup, lots of sunshine and taking in all the tourist-y sights that Italy had on offer.

I religiously made use of the product following my normal skin care routine every morning before heading out for breakfast, I did not burn, at all. That on its own is a complete miracle as this British skin has 2 colours, white and red like the St. Georges flag. I may have come back without a tan, but that is fine as I did not come back with red, peeling or sore skin. *This used to be the story of my life!

Using my Sun Film, I replaced the need for me to wear a foundation or powder as it leaves the skin with a healthy subtle glow that lasts while providing much needed sun protection. The formula initially seemed a bit thick compared to other products I have used in the past, but when applied to your hand it spreads with the heat of your hand into a smooth, non-greasy formula which results in a wonderful slightly dewy finish thanks to the beautiful tint. When applying to your face there is a slight cooling sensation which is always welcome when the weather seems a bit humid.

I found that the product lasts, and only one day, when sightseeing and doing the typical tourist thing visiting the Coliseum and Roman Forums that I had to reapply my Sun Film as the heat was unbearable and I thought I’d rather be safe than sorry. The tube is small and fit into my handbag no problem. The Sun Film gel incorporates specialised anti-oxidant protection which is unique to the Juliet Armand sun protection range.

ANTIOXIDANT PROTECTION

The Sun Film Gel 30 goes a long way and retails for R465 for 55ml and is available at selected stockists nationwide, please contact Poise Brands to find out one near you. This has become my must-have product for our upcoming summer months, especially over December when everything goes on a go-slow, including my makeup routine.

Downsides to the product – my man refused to use my sun cream as it looks like makeup and well that resulted in one burnt travel buddy but that is not really my fault, I offered it and he refused 😉

Thank you Juliet Armand for saving my face from the Italian rays and making my holiday that little more pleasant by relieving me of sun burn issues! 🙂

Opsis Therapy – Juliette Armand

Opsis Therapy – Juliette Armand

A few weeks ago I was given this orange and white box with what appears to look like a clean sterile tube which looks like a needle which appears to have a see through substance inside of it. This was my first introduction with the brand Juliette Armand and I was absolutely intrigued. The brand has 3 lines and this product falls under the “anti-surgery” line. Postponing the need for forking out addtional cash for botox can be put back into the piggybank and used for some shoe shopping or indulging in the Juliette Armand product line.

The box instructions read as follows:

“Specific gel that immediately and visibly reduces dark circles and swelling in the sensitive eye contour area. This product moisturizers and tones the skin while reducing wrinkles of expression. Moreover it lends a smooth firm and soft eye contour.
Apply in the eye contour area by massaging on at morning and/or at night.”

I am not huge on eye area products as my eyes are inheritanly sensitive to active ingredients and I normally end up rubbing everything into my eye as the day goes on. The needle like container is unique that it disepenses just the right amount of product (in other words, very little) onto your finger in order to apply around the sensitive eye contour area. Using a pinky finger, gently massaging the gel into the skin from an inner corner to outer corner you feel the gel instantly be absorbed by your skin and leaves you feeling a bit more bright eyed.

The packaging is ingenious in the fact not only does it give you just enough product which results in wasting, is that the white tip can be used for extra stimulation of massaging the product into the sensitive eye area. I must be honest, I still haven’t found the time to be faffing with that early in the morning before work but it is a nice-to-have and I might actually make a point to use it tonight because I simply haven’t.

I don’t know if the product works on dark circles as it states it will, as I really don’t seem to suffer from the very much, but it certainly is a soothing eye gel and does reduce puffiness from not sleeping well or possibly having one too many glasses of wine the night before. There is a bonus of using it, if you apply it after a long day at work staring at a PC screen for too long before going out with friends it really does make you feel more awake. I have enjoyed using this during the winter months as even though my oily skin can be a nuisance around my eyes and nose can sometimes be prone to feeling very dry in these harsh colder months and I have found that this product has helped with around my eye area.

The product retails at selected salons for R725 and I truly believe even if used twice daily, the product would last for a long time so in the long run, it is not expensive no matter how big the initial outlay for what seems to be a small eye care product, but it is certainly cheaper than botox – I checked!

Introducing Juliette Armand

Cancel any plastic surgery indefinitely before you try Juliette Armand. In a nutshell, Juliette Armand is a Greek company that was founded by two Greek chemists in the 1990’s that decided to enter the wide world of cosmeticsJuliette Armand by developing both new and unique formulas. If you know any Greeks in your life or even have watched My Big Fat Greek Wedding, you will know that everything the Greeks do, they do with the upmost pride. As the Juliette Armand brand is very well known in Greece, across the EU and internationally it is a pleasure to know that they are available in South Africa. Juliette Armand are a bespoke company as they boast quality ingredients, professional research and deliver on their promises.

The brand, Juliette Armand has 3 product lines.

Juliette Armand’s mission is quite unique.

“Time does not stop, however it may be slowed down. This is exactly what our mission is, to make time elapse on the skin at a lower rate.”

Don’t shop their products by skin type but by skin mood. This is a unique concept which makes sense if you think about it. Do you really need to define what ‘skin type’ you fall into for life when there are various other items to take into account when choosing the correct products for you as they need to suit the season of life you’re in. If you too are as intrigued about this brand as I am, then watch this space for a review of their Skin Booster OPSIS THERAPY – Eye Brightening Gel which I have had the pleasure to try.
