I know, I know…I am SO lucky that I live in southern Michigan! While the weather and our football team can be iffy, I have Detroit baseball and a local Kleraderm counter. Those of us lucky enough to be Michiganders get amazing – and free – facials by Joanne at Kleraderm. I had one recently, and can’t wait to share how terrific it was. You can join in the Kleraderm fun with our current $530 Kleraderm Giveaway (enter HERE) and you can also get a smoking deal with Nordstrom’s upcoming event – I have the details for you after I make you mad at me because I get to see Joanne in person.

Kleraderm just launched a terrific website, kleradermusa.com, where you can find detailed information on the products available for purchase. What is so cool about a Kleraderm facial is Joanne (or the fabulous Michael) use products that aren’t even available yet in the states. The facial I had last weekend, including total pampering service in a private room and all the treatment bells and whistles, would cost me about $200 in a typical upscale spa.

Kleraderm Omorfies Cleansing Milk

Joanne started my facial by cleansing my skin with Omorfies Cleansing Milk, since this product contains over 27 active enzymes and helps to balance skins natural mantel.

Next, she put a Glycolic acid 25% solution on for about 6-8 minutes. This is a special treatment item that is not available for purchase.

Kleraderm Botofit Serum

After rinsing off the Glycolic, Joanne applied a layer of the Botofit Serum 20% (this is a topical Botox alternative and it is in our current giveaway basket!) and let it penetrate my skin. She then topped it with the coolest product – Kleraderm Mud Oil. This has tons of vegetables in it along with  synergy. It really smelled like vegetable soup!  Joanne left this on my skin for 12 minutes and then rinsed the Botofit and Mud Oil off.

Kleraderm Lifting Serum

Next, Joanne applied the Lifting Serum (available for purchase) because of its natural ingredient Pygeum Africana, which is a sap from a Pygeum tree that grows in Africa. It has powerful lifting properties and also acts like an aspirin for skin, which makes it a good product to apply after such intense treatments.

The next step was applying a Cryogenic Anti-Age Mask. I so wish this was available for purchase! This mask is a powder with plants from the ocean, and once mixed with water the properties become active (alive!). When it is applied it feels like ice, although not in a painful way, it is totally doable even for big wimps like me. The colder it gets, the deeper it is going down through the skin, finally resting in the nucleus of the skin cells. When the mask is done it is almost like rubber. Joanne pulls it off in one in one sweeping motion, like a huge Biore strip. She held up the mask for me to see and it had all the dead skin that was loosened up during the glycolic acid and mud oil treatments. Gross…but fascinating!

Kleraderm Eye Gel

After the mask Joanne applied Botofit Serum 20% Eye Gel to help with fine lines and wrinkles around my eye area. She even put it on my eyelids to help keep them smooth and free from the crepe paper look. A tip she gave me is that eye shadow primer can actually increase eyelid wrinkles because it dries out the lids so much.

Kleraderm Eye Contour CreamJoanne followed that with Eye Contour Cream all over my eye area, under my eyes and on the eyelids too. She even applied the Eye Cream on my lips and in the lip area since eye cream is made for skin with virtually no pores, making it very penetrating.  She definitely recommended using the Eye Contour Cream on the mouth area before moisturizer to help lock in moisture all day.

Kleraderm Collastin Cream

For the final steps, Joanne applied Kleraderm Neogenesis, one of their new product lines which uses stem cells from vegetable plants. She used Oreo Fill on my lip line and I was astounded at how plump and full my lips looked!  ‘Oreo’ in Greece means KISS, and my lips looked as kissable as possible. Finally, Joanne topped my skin with Collastin Cream from the IDRODERM line. This products is made up of collagen and elastin fibers that actually wrap around your own collagen and elastin fibers.

Joanne recommended that I start using the Eye Contour Gel every morning and every night topped with an eye cream, as well as Botofit Cream under my moisturizer every morning and every night.

If you live in the area, you HAVE to go see Joanne or Michael at Nordstrom Somerset or Nordstrom Partridge Creek for a facial. Also, there is a Nordstrom promo on 5/9 at Somerset and 5/29 and 5/30 at Partridge Creek – a free infinite beauty treatment from Kleraderm by appointment only and the gifts are:

$250 purchase – full size Amber+Argon cleanser ($58 value)

$350 purchase – previous two gifts plus a full size Self Tanner with anti-age and UVA/UVB protection. This does not stain the skin, instead it works with the skin’s natural pigment ($225 value)
Anyone is welcome to the goodies! All you need to do is call Michael for a pre-sell order and they will ship to you for free.  (248) 835-2770

Botofit Serum Topical Botox Alternative:

People go absolutely crazy for the Botofit Serum. I would guess that almost every Kleraderm customer has this because it is so effective. Botofit Serum is made from hex peptide amino acids, native collagen and a high content of hyaluronic acid. Together, these fantastic skin care ingredients  create a topical remedy for fine lines and wrinkles without injections or side effects. Botofit Serum also helps you to regain muscle control.

Kleraderm Ysaline Cream

Kleraderm Ysaline Cream

Ysaline Cream Topical Filler:

Made from Omega 3-6-9 fatty acids to help fill fine lines and wrinkles, Ysaline Cream has no moisturizing properties! Instead it is an intense treatment of Omegas and hyaluronic acids which travel down to the second and third layers of the derma, releasing omega and filling fine lines and wrinkles. Results are immediate and very impressive.

Anniversary giveaway! Kleraderm Skin Care baskets for oily and dry skin with 2 winners!

logoHas it really been five whole years?? It seems like just yesterday Marcia and I were simply cosmetics-crazy friends, meeting at the mall to get makeovers, take artistry classes, and spending a month’s worth of paychecks on the latest cosmetics and skin care. Time flies when having fun and the last five years of blogging have gone by in a flash.

The gorgeous Joanne Recchia, owner of  Kleraderm

The gorgeous Joanne Recchia, owner of Kleraderm

A line that has been with the BIZ from the very beginning is the Italian skin care line Kleraderm. The truly wonderful owner, Joanne Recchia, is many things to me. She is my skin care mentor; her knowledge of ingredients and treatments for the skin is astounding. She is the best facialist I have ever met. And she is a truly kind and good person, someone I am so proud to have as a friend. Joanne put together some very thoughtful prizes with all the basics you need for a skin care regimen – just all kinds of goodies to help us celebrate! Today is the first of several Kleraderm giveaways with two fantastic baskets for readers to win.

I first met Joanne at my local Nordstrom’s in Troy, Michigan. I remember I was there to see Marcia’s sister Carol, a highly talented makeup artist who was working for MAC at the time. Carol told me that Joanne was someone I should meet and she introduced us. I was impressed with Joanne’s story and once I tried the Kleraderm skin care line I was hooked and became a ‘Kleranet’ for life.

We have two incredible Kleraderm Skin Care Baskets for today’s anniversary giveaway. Joanne designed a Purissima basket for those with oily/blemish-prone skin, and an Idroderm basket for those with dry skin.  Take a look:

Kleraderm Purrissima Giveaway Basket

Kleraderm Purissima Giveaway Basket

Purissima Basket (Total Value $140!)  This basket has three great products to keep skin clear and blemish-free. Purrisima products were created for skin types that suffer from overactive oil and breakouts, helping skin regain its natural mantle and pH balance. Purissima products reduce the redness associated with breakouts while calming skin. Skin becomes clearer and oil production returns to its natural state.

purissima cleansing milk

Pale Rose Cleansing Milk is for deep pore cleansing while maintaining the proper pH balance. Pale Rose eliminates impurities and soothes skin. This cleanser is for daily use, and Joanne suggests wiping Pale Rose off with a hot towel. The heat from the towel drives the healing properties deeper while the towel acts as a mild exfoliate. Pale Rose is also an excellent makeup remover!

Purrissima Acid Cream

Acid Cream is a daily moisturizing treatment for acne-prone and oily skin types. Acid Cream helps maintain a proper pH balance while ensuring visible and lasting results. It decreases oil production and acts as drying agent against acne while balancing hydration. Acid Cream is used as daily moisturizer and is great under makeup.

Purisimma Purifying Liquid

Purifying Liquid is perfect for regulating oil production.Purifying Liquid can be used as a spot treatment for acne and is capable of dissolving blackheads. Just apply lightly to the t-zone area to slow down oil production. Purifying Liquid is applied directly to any area of concern every other night.

Kleraderm Idroderm Giveaway Basket

Kleraderm Idroderm Giveaway Basket

Idroderm Basket (Total Value $175!)  This basket has three fabulous products that hydrate, firm, and nourish dry skin. The Idroderm line features intensive moisturizing and repairing treatments for dehydrated skin that lacks the natural mantle responsible for keeping skin’s balance of water and oil. Idroderm restores the correct moisture balance and nourishes the upper layers of skin while providing UV protection. Idroderm has a high content of native collagen and hyaluronic acid promoting healthy cell life. If you have dry skin, try these products and you will find your skin becomes balanced, hydrated and radiant.

idroderm cleansing milk

Collagen Cleansing Milk is a light emulsion composed of carefully selected ingredients including collagen. It ensures a deep pore cleansing, removing all impurities and traces of makeup while preserving skin’s natural mantle and pH balance.

idro tonic lotion

Collagen Tonic is an alcohol-free toner rich in active properties to soothe and refresh skin.  This elegant toner is one of my favorites of all time.

idro collastin cream

Collastin Cream has a high concentrate of native collagen and elastin fibers that wrap around the skin’s own collagen and elastin fibers to correct wrinkles and fine lines. Skin becomes firm and youthful in appearance. This intensive hydrating treatment creates healthy, well-balanced skin.

Parabens: what is the real story?

We hear so much about parabens…well actually what we hear is that ‘paraben-free’ is the only way to go. But is it really? Joanne Recchia, the US owner of the Italian skin care line Kleraderm, weighs in on these cosmetics preservatives.

Parabens the Natural Preservative….

 Let’s talk about parabens for a minute since parabens have been the most controversial subject for the last five years. Let me point this out first: all parabens are not created equal.

Plants naturally make parabens which helps the plant stay healthy and free from fungus and bacteria.

Man-made parabens are created from petrochemicals and synthetic substances, and they are very cost efficient for the company using these types of parabens as stabilizers in their products.

parabens

Products containing plant-based products parabens will be on the label listing since plants naturally make them.  If you have eaten blueberries, carrots, olives, cucumbers and honeysuckle then you have consumed parabens.

A source of natural parabens

A source of natural parabens

When used in products as stabilizer and anti-fungal agents, natural parabens are a safe and healthy alternative to man-made petrochemical parabens.

The European Union has done studies and they have not found any harmful links between humans and natural parabens. Less than 2% natural parabens per vat is all that is needed to secure the product from bacteria and fungus.

Kleraderm lists parabens as the last ingredients on the label listing; this is because during the process of extracting fibers and active ingredients from the plant most of the parabens are then spun out, leaving only enough parabens to keep the product safe and clean. Being that Kleraderm is packaged in the European Union it is the law to list every ingredient the product has been in contact with during the time of its development, even if the ingredient is no longer present.

Some natural and organic products that are ‘paraben-free’ many times have high volume of mold spores present that are not visible to the naked eye.

So you must ask yourself this question when viewing products that claim they are paraben-free:  What has taken the place of parabens to secure the product from mold and bacteria?

Sometimes the replacement stabilizer can be more hurtful than helpful.  – Joanne Recchia
