"Looking good, means feeling good, means doing good." ~Dr. Barbara Polla

*The products that I'm about to present to you was personally picked by me and sent to me complimentary in exchange for my review. All thoughts are my own.


When my +Alchimie Forever  package arrived at my doorstep I was so excited to experience the products for myself.  I knew I was going to experience nothing less than amazing! I was able to pick some products and I ended up picking the top selling products that are loved by so many pro artists in the industry and the consumers. I heard so many great things from my fellow friend Bobby who was the manager at Look Boutique but moved on up in his career. GO BOBBY! But while introducing me to a new product that wasn't yet in LOOK Boutique Houston he introduced me to the CEO!  

As a makeup artist and one that work within the industry, I believe skincare is so important in the application process. I've dealt with so many skin types alone and believe if everyone had a solid skincare routine they wouldn't have to depend so much on makeup as a necessity. I'm in my early 30's and for the past year, I've been experiencing hormonal changes. I've been sweating like crazy and I've never been a heavy sweater. I use to always say "I don't sweat, I glisten" and that was the truth until I seen 30. I've been experiencing breakouts which I believe was hormonal. It took me about a year to get my skin somewhat stable. As a blogger, I test so many products and I pay much attention to the ingredients I put on my skin and although I've been managing I've had some occasional breakouts that also left hyper-pigmentation. SO it's only right for me to share some of my secrets with you all.  Here are 3 Life-Changing Products That Improved My Skin.



"The origin of Alchimie Forever is based on the need for post-procedure skincare formulated to immediately treat sensitive skin and add long-term anti-aging benefits."






Kantic Brightening Moisture Mask

First starting with my favorite of them all and it's actually a product that is sold out quite frequently! The Kantic Brightening Moisture Mask  retails for $60. This mask is for all skin types. It deeply penetrates into the skin by hydrating and sealing in the moisture. It also has properties that soothe the skin but eliminate irritation and inflammation. 



>> INGREDIENTS TO GET INTO <<
OATS aids in the recovery of the skin by calming and moisturizing the skin. It restores the skin barrier, reduces itching and regulates inflammation. It's also anti-aging.
WILD PANSIES is a herb that has been used to treat eczema, skin diseases acne and more. This ingredient calms irritations. 
GRAPE is a powerful antioxidant that contains properties that are anti-inflammatory. It protects against sunburns, reverse aging, softens the skin, lightens scars and targets uneven skin tone.
BLUEBERRIES reduces redness and inflammation

HOW MANY TIMES TO USE: 
This product can be used daily however I use this mask 3 times a week.

HOW TO USE:
Apply a generous layer to face and neck, leaving on for 15-20 minutes. Then rinse it.

>> TIP <<
Before applying this mask, take a hot face towel and apply to face and neck to open pores up. Immediately after that apply Kantic Brightening Moisture Mask to get maximum results

KANTIC + INTENSELY NOURISHING CREAM

This is the perfect moisturizer for all skin types. It's rich in antioxidants derived from European blueberries and grape seeds. This nourishing cream:

* HYDRATES
* REDUCES REDNESS
* REVIVES DULL SKIN
* HELPS MINIMIZE THE SIGNS OF STRESS AND FATIGUE




This cream leaves the skin so soft, youthful and radiant. It's perfect for these heated summers because it gives you a great coat of moisture without leaving you feeling like you're being submerged in oil and frying in the sun. It's very rich and has a pleasant scent.  It also aids in the reduction of inflammation and irritation to the skin. This moisturizer cream retails for $79 and a little goes a very long way so this will last you for some time.


PIGMENT LIGHTENING SERUM

Packaged in an airless pump, this serum targets uneven pigmentation, revealing a more youthful appearance. This serum contains +Alchimie Forever signature ingredients , 

- European Blueberry - rich in fiber & vitamin A & C. It's great for acne and blueberries prevent aging
- Hyaluronic Acid - this ingredient has the ability to retain moisture & hold moisture. Which makes this a great anti-aging ingredient because as we age our skin loses moisture.
- Vitamin C builds up collagen in the skin therefore giving you more of a youthful appearance  
- Vitamin E blocks free radicals which play a huge role in the aging process.

This powerful blend prevents and corrects age spots, fights free radical damage to minimize the appearance of premature aging. 

I personally like to use this at night time because the skin repairs and heals overnight. I believe I've gotten the best results at night.  However, this serum can also be used in the day time. It has a gel-like texture that instantly penetrates into the skin.This product retails for $95 but it is well worth the purchase. I always tell my readers and clients your best investments are serums because they are rich and high in concentration. Which is why if I had to choose between a serum and a moisturizer I would pick the serum. 

How-to: Alchimie Forever Pigment Lightening Serum



SKINCARE 101
Active ingredients are more expensive than thickeners which explain why Serums are more expensive in many of the skincare brands that we see. However, when the product is applied  correctly Serums can last you months. So when you evaluate the amount you are paying it's totally worth it. So remember 1-2 pumps or drops of serum is enough for the skin.

BONUS
We're talking about products that improve the skin. I would be doing a dis-service if I didn't share this bonus product with you. These products I've mentioned are incredible and you will get great results  using them. But it is just as important to protect the skin. 


This is my daily defense cream that I like to combine with the Kantic Nourishing Cream! This product contains many of the ingredients that we've already mentioned such as European Blueberries in coaction with  Vitamin C & E fighting free radical damage and contains four screens to protect your skin from UVA and UVB. 


"We believe that your skin is the mirror of your soil, and that taking care of your skin daily, effectively, gently, is essential to your self care."

WHY I LOVE ALCHIMIE FOREVER???
Many of you may know one of my favorite skincare brands is +Clarins. I love Clarins because they have botanical ingredients, clinical results and a simple approach to skincare. Alchimie has a similar approach. 
With Alchimie you get 4 things:
- Clinical Results
- Clean Formulations
- Botanical Ingredients
- And Magical Results

Their products are non-abrasive but you get remarkable results. They believe skincare shouldn't be a chore but instead an essential ritual. Alchimie has found a way to simplify the process but maximize the results. And that is why I love them! Alchimie also provides an at-home/at-spa experience
