Vichy Mineral 89

Vichy Mineral 89 -Hyaluronic-Acid-Moisturizer-Homepage-Banner-Vichy

Vichy, one of the leading European pharmacy brands, has just rolled out a new product – Vichy Mineral 89, hyaluronic acid face moisturizer. As its name suggests, Mineral 89 is a strong hydrating product formulated with Vichy’s miracle-working mineralizing thermal water from the French volcanoes.

But what kind of water is this? In a nutshell: anything but your basic H20. Vichy thermal water flows warms over 4000 meters underground, and flows through the thousand-year-old magmatic volcanic rock, where it picks up no less but 15 skin-strengthening minerals including iron, potassium, calcium, and manganese. Yes, most of the pharmacy brands offer their versions of skin-soothing mists and thermal waters, but Vichy’s one comes with a major advantage! Not only it soothes the skin, but also helps to rebalance pH and protects from external aggressors, like pollution and weather.

Vichy’s mineralizing thermal water is present in all of its products, and everyone, no matter age or skin type, women or men, can benefit from using it. The newly launched product, Mineral 89, contains the highest concentration of this skin-soothing, hydrating water, which makes it the perfect addition to any skin care routine.

Vichy Mineral 89 is announced as a new generation moisturizer, a product that combines 15-mineral rich water with hyaluronic acid to fortify the skin and make it more resilient to internal and external stressors. No less than 89% of this product is Vichy’s legendary mineralizing thermal water, which fortifies the skin and strengthens its moisture barrier. In combination with hyaluronic acid, the water hydrates and plumps the skin. As a result, skin feels more hydrated and toned, radiating with a healthy glow.

Sephora Is Launching a Nationwide Free Beauty Class for Women and Men with Cancer


Sephora just announced that it would be adding an empowering and free beauty class exclusively for people living with cancer. The class is titled ‘Brave Beauty in the Face of Cancer’ and will join the retailer’s ‘Classes For Confidence’ program.

According to a press release, each 90-minute class will offer personalized skin care tips, possible solutions to any beauty-related problems and makeup how-tos, students may have stemming from their battle with cancer. Students will learn a variety of skills to apply masterful eye makeup, achieve natural-looking brows, and (much) more. Each student will also receive their unique Color IQ to learn which products work best for their complexion. While putting together this curriculum, Sephora sought the advice of its employees who also had or still have cancer.

We are harnessing the fun upbeat environment of our stores and attention of our experts, to create a safe place for participants to learn and play with beauty, ask questions, and connect with others going through a similar situation.

Corrie Conrad, Sephora’s Senior Director of Social Impact and Sustainability

Not only that, but Sephora employees nationwide will also be wearing a lavender lapel pin as a gesture of solidarity, given that lavender is the color used to symbolize awareness for all cancers.

Because Sephora wants to ensure that each attendees needs are fully met, they’re keeping class size super-small. No more than 12 people will be able to sign up for a session, and for every three-four participants in attendance there will be a coach present to provide additional hands-on help.

Men are also welcome, hair loss and skin effects from cancer treatments know no gender, and we want to be a safe space for all of our clients.

Corrie Conrad

Going forward, the larger ‘Classes For Confidence’ program will work with different nonprofit organizations to help support its many shoppers. Another class is aimed at helping women and men with workforce reentry and will give students the tips they need to create everyday looks for work.

‘Brave Beauty in the Face of Cancer’ will be available in 50 locations starting April 9. Click here to locate available classes near you.

La Mer The Brilliance Brightening Mask. Ageless. Luminous. Bright



La Mer The Brilliance Brightening Mask 1

A brighter, healthier skin in just two steps? Sounds like a miracle, but that’s exactly what La Mer’s new The Brilliance Brightening Mask promises to deliver!

The biggest concern we face during winter is dehydration. The dry, cold weather can strip your face of moisture and natural oils, inflame rosacea, and create dry, flaking patches. It’s about time to ditch that dull, lackluster, moisture deprived skin – you’re just two steps away from dewy, glowing, complexion.

La Mer The Brilliance Brightening Mask 3.jpg

La Mer The Brilliance Brightening Mask, this innovative two-step treatment is a gentle, yet powerful duo that brightens and softens skin to reveal a more luminous, youthful look. The treatment is the latest addition to the hugely successful Blanc de La Mer collection, which already includes the amazingly potent Brilliance Brightening Essence.

Based on a unique two-step system, The Brilliance Brightening Mask pairs two cutting-edge formulas that work together to deliver intense rejuvenating, soothing, and brightening results.

The La Mer Brilliance White Soothing Primer

The Brilliance White Soothing Primer, infused with a highly concentrated dose of La Mer’s legendary Miracle Broth and the new Calming Ferment, soothes and calms the skin to prepare it for the second step of the treatment.

The fast-working treatment takes no more than 8 weeks to deliver powerful, clinically proven, immediately noticeable brightening effects! You’ll even be able to reap fantastic benefits after the very first application –  it hydrates and softens as it delivers energy and protects the skin against environmental aggressors and future hyperpigmentation.

The Brilliance White Gel Cream immerses your skin in the most concentrated blend of moisturizing, brightening, and age defying ingredients. Its lightweight, yet rich, gel-to-cream texture comfortably hugs the skin as it hydrates, softens, and diminishes the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The gel is formulated with the Vital Balance Ferment, which captures the healing energies of the sea in a living elixir made of sea kelp and marine peptides.

La Mer The Brilliance Brightening Mask How To Use


The best thing is that you can get that amazing, youthful looking, brilliant skin in just 8 minutes! After cleansing, sweep the primer onto your forehead, temples, cheeks, jawline, neck and décolletage. In outward and upward motions, use your fingertips to gently glide onto your face and neck, massaging into the skin to stimulate circulation and prep for optimal brightening. Using the brush, paint on a thin, even layer of Brilliance Brightening Mask Gel Cream to your neck and face. Sweep upward from the neck and outward from the center, allowing it to infuse for eight minutes and seal in all the brightening benefits. And that’s it.

Chanel Huile de Jasmin

Maison Chanel launches Huile de Jasmin in March 2017, based on the original formula created by Gabrielle Coco Chanel back in 1927. Huile de Jasmin is a revitalizing facial oil with jasmine extract, formulated to make the skin look luminescent. It represents a reinterpretation of the precious emblematic treatment from the history of the house and from Coco’s own beauty counter.


The oil nourishes and repairs the skin, made of many, mostly natural oils and ingredients. The formula transmits its revitalizing properties to the skin, providing comfort and elasticity. Jasmine oil from Chanel’s own fields in Grasse is the main ingredient, paired up with camellia, limnathes alba and jojoba oil. The jasmine that is used is collected by hand on the day of its emergence to preserve all its properties.


The facial oil provides a moisturizing and strengthening effect, protecting the skin’s barrier and provides it with comfort and suppleness. In addition, it reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

Maison Chanel did a clinical evaluation on 33 women to test the product. The results are:

  • The skin looks immediately brighter: + 22% . Day after day, it increases its luminosity: +31% after one month.
  • Wrinkles and expression lines are less visible. The skin is visibly smoother: + 34%.
  • The skin is hydrated and protected. The complexion shines naturally, sublimated by a subtly satin finish.

You can use Huile de Jasmin daily or as a cure treatment, according to the needs of your skin. It can be used directly on the clean skin, under a serum or a cream, for women who feel their skin is tired and lacks vitality, or combined with a cream, for women looking for additional comfort in a single application, or even with a foundation, for a touch of luminosity.



The ultimate chic packaging screams luxury, reminiscent of the original one from the 1920s. The product is (sadly) a limited edition.  It will only available on and in Chanel’s own boutiques from March 2017. A 50 ml bottles will be around $120.
