Ila Face Oil protects against the sun’s rays, nourishes and heals the skin and also works beautifully as a makeup primer. It wears beautifully under make up and is a great moisturiser for all skin types, even acne-prone. It is 92.52% organic and comes in a white, opaque bottle with dropper.

The essential oil of damascena rose otto deeply regenerates and nourishes the skin’s cells and imparts glowing radiance while argan oil and rosehip seed oil are high in anti-oxidants and fatty acids to fight wrinkles and help skin cells to regenerate.

I call this Winner of Marie Claire UK’s Prix D’Excellence International Beauty Award a  ” Fragrant Facial “. The ultra nourishing oil glides on smoothly, absorbed  instantly, leaves a glowing veil and intoxicating rose aroma. It’s great as a facial massage oil. I loves using it as a pampering treat underneath my night cream before retiring to bed.

Ingredients: Wild-Grown Argan Oil (Argania Spinosa Kernal)*, Rosehip Seed Oil (Rosa Canina)*, Sandalwood (Santalam Spicatum), Rose Otto Oil (Rosa Damascena Flower Oil), Vitamin E Oil (Tocopherol Extract), Naturally Occurring Citronellol, Farnesol, Linalool.

Dermalogica Age Smart skin resurfacing cleanser

Posted in skincare with tags , , , , , on June 23, 2009 by LPB

This smoothing cleanser provides an exceptional beginning to your anti-aging regimen. It delicately removes dirt, debris, excess oil and makeup, leaving the skin fresh and pure.

Lactic acid exfoliates away dead skin cells while hydrating and brightening the skin.

Rose flower oil calms sensitivity, and vitamin E provides antioxidant protection, conditioning, and softening benefits all while locking in moisture for a plumper, more supple complexion.

Developed for mature and prematurely aging skin, this gentle cleanser prepares the skin for further treatment, leaving it perfectly cleansed, soft and comfortable.

I had read about reviews of this cleanser in Makeupalley, most of the users were complaining that this powerful cleanser tends to dry up the skin and is too low foaming for an effective cleansing.

It doesn’t make my retin A treated skin flaky or irritated ( may be my skin had accustomed to “harsh” treatment after retinoid acid ). It smell is not as rosy as i would prefer. However, it does clean reasonably well, leaves my skin smooth & bright.

I found a way to make it foamy enough for my preference; i apply it on dry face, like any other milky cleanser, massage it all over, then add in a handful of luke warmth water. The emulsified solution will foams, and in my opinion, a rather dense fine foam!

I also use it all over my body as an exfoliant /moisturiser, without any adverse effect. I purchased this product in salon size!
