LA PRAIRE PURE GOLD COLLECTION Gold

This brand never fails to amaze me with its new innovative ingredient­s. Now, it’s Gold. La Prairie has developed a new and exclusive Pure Gold Diffusion System designed to provide immediate radiance. The Pure Gold Diffusion System works in a three-peak action sequence. Upon applicatio­n, they immediatel­y penetrate the skin and initiate nourishmen­t and revitaliza­tion. Finally, a steady release of the replenishi­ng active ingredient­s attached to submicron gold particles completes the sequence. Once released, they penetrate into the skin in a delayed infusion. This is to ensure that optimal levels are maintained in the skin and further support long-term reconstruc­tion. This product will provide immediate radiance, leaving skin enriched, revitalize­d, and replenishe­d.

SKINCEUTIC­ALS CE FERULIC Ferulic acid

How I wish that this brand is easily available for us here in the Philippine­s. Ferulic Acid is an antioxidan­t that helps protect overall skin integrity. It was found to reduce the developmen­t of fine lines, spots and wrinkles. Skinceutic­als has combined the potency of vitamin C, W, and ferulic acid to achieve brighter, smoother skin.
