A trip to the tropics with Phytocéane COSTA RICA Moisturizing Body Water

Phytocéane COSTA RICA Moisturizing Body Water

sample
A few years ago I traveled to Costa Rica, and I still think about those incredible beaches and lush tropical forests.  Phytocéane recently came out with an amazing hydrating body water spray that takes me right back to that fantastic yoga retreat I visited in Costa Rica thanks to the beautiful scent, and it also gives me soft, moisturized skin.

Phytocéane COSTA RICA Moisturizing Body Water

 COSTA RICA Moisturizing Body Water ($48) is a body spray with a gorgeous tropical fragrance that is a combination of peach, apple, melon and pineapple blended with jasmine, cedar and musk. A few sprays of this and WOW – I am instantly transported to Costa Rica!  The scent is beachy yet elegant, and it’s soft and not overpowering.  Absolutely perfect for summer.

Phytocéane COSTA RICA Moisturizing Body Water

COSTA RICA Moisturizing Body Water is also great for hydrating dry skin.  The main ingredient is jania, which is a sustainably-cultivated red vegetal coral that provides skin with intense hydration.  It leaves my skin feels wonderfully soft and fresh, something I really appreciate since it gets very dry and itchy during long hot days.

The combination of beautiful tropical scent and soothing hydration for skin makes the Phytocéane COSTA RICA Moisturizing Body Water a real winner and one of my favorite products this summer.  You can find this as well as all the other fantastic Phytoceane products at lespausa.com.  – Lisa

How can sand give you gorgeous skin? Just ask Phytoceane!

What do volcanic sand, Polynesian sand, and red vegetal coral all have in common? The combination of these ingredients will give you the most incredible skin ever! Phytoceane has two beautiful skin care products that I am absolutely loving. They give me soft, smooth, exfoliated skin that is perfectly hydrated. These products are extremely gentle and give instant results, so those with super sensitive skin who are also impatient will be very, very happy!

Phytoceane Two Sands Creamy Scrub

The Two Sands Creamy Scrub ($39.50) is a facial exfoliator that does indeed feature two different types of sand. It’s a white cream with tiny exfoliating scrubbies – volcanic sand from North America for buffing off dead skin cells, and even smaller white sand granules from Polynesia for polishing and smoothing skin. A third ingredient is Jania, which is a sustainably-cultivated red vegetal coral that provides skin with intense hydration.

Skin is left feeling super clean, soft, and smooth. I love how gentle this is. I keep mine in the shower and use it on my face and neck two times a week.

Phytoceane Moisturizing Fusion Cream

A wonderfully elegant product to use afterward is the Moisturizing Fusion Cream ($56).  f you have dry skin, this is your miracle product. It has two interesting ingredients – RubiMarin, an extract of the red vegetal coral that is sustainably cultivated in a laboratory and has tons of minerals to keep skin super hydrated; and Glasswort Oil, which comes from a sea plant and improves circulation and the storage of water in the skin.

The formula is really intriguing. It’s a cream-in-water formulation that actually breaks when it’s applied, so the water gives an instant hydrating boost to the skin, and then the cream soaks in and locks that moisture in, leaving a matte finish to the skin. It’s a truly beautiful formulation that is unlike anything I’ve ever tried. This does have a fragrance that lingers. The scent is a soft combination of musk, florals, and aquatic notes. If you aren’t a fan of fragrance in your skin care take note. If that doesn’t bother you, then I hope you  will try this because it really is something unusual and very effective for dry skin.

SOS for sensitive skin: Phytoceane Dermo-Softness Fluid

Phytoceane Dermo-Softness FluidSometimes you need to throw your sensitive skin a life jacket, especially with cold winter wind and drying indoor heat. My skin gets VERY sensitive at this time of year and a product I love for calming and comforting the irritation is Phytoceane Dermo-Softness Fluid ($57.50).

Phytoceane is a French-based professional skin and body care line that can be found in high-end spas all over the world. It’s a natural, marine-based brand that is classically French, with an emphasis on travel, escape, and luxurious pampering. Phytocéane DERMO-SOFTNESS FLUID is their moisturizer specifically designed to soothe sensitive skin from harsh environmental factors including the sun, wind, pollution, and even your cosmetics (we often forget that our cosmetics can be irritating, especially during harsh weather).

This face moisturizer is wonderfully lightweight and soaks in quickly, leaving skin soft and calm without any stickiness. It relieves all skin complaints such as redness, itching, tingling and tightness. The ingredients include what Phytocéane calls ‘gems of the sea’ to fight the inflammatory response and soothe with hydration and minerals. Allantoin, vitamin B5 and coralline extract are the stars in the elegant formula that heals and protects sensitive skin.

Beach bumming days may be winding down but that’s no excuse to lose that beach bum experience…or your beach body!

Travel to Bora Bora with this Phytoceane Bath Oil

Travel to Bora Bora with this Phytoceane Bora Bora Sensory Bath

Phytocéane recently sent me both a message AND a bottle with their luxurious BORA-BORA SENSORY BATH ($33). If you are a bath person be sure to check out this bath oil because it is to die for. It’s a hypnotically vivid blue and the fragrance…WOW. The delicious combination of almond and vanilla waft around you like a warm Bora-Bora breeze. The oil creates a soft, milky foam in the bath that is wonderfully moisturizing. Ingredients include trace minerals and elements from seawater concentrate that rejuvenate skin while melting away muscle knots and tension. I may not be at the beach, but I end up feeling as relaxed and happy as I do seaside.

BORA-BORA SENSORY BATH is available for purchase at select spas in the United States and at www.lespausa.com.

Since I am dreaming I’m on the beach with my Bora Bora Sensory Bath, I always follow it with the Phytomer MORPHO DESIGNER Contouring Crystal Emulsion ($110) because when it comes to a beach body I need all the help I can get! Morpho Designer is part of the contouring collection and, let me tell you, this body lotion makes an immediate difference. The lotion sinks right in without heaviness or greasiness. It leaves my skin super soft and smooth…even in areas that are a little, ahem, bumpy.

How does it do this?  Formulated with exclusive ingredient ADIPO-3, it launches a three-pronged attack on fat cells to weaken the structure of existing fat, prevent the natural production of new fat and strengthen and redensify the skin’s support tissues. A duo of marine algaes activates micro-circulation and draining for a firm and energized body, free from excess fat. It has liquid crystals that sort of melt into the skin, not only breaking up existing fat but also preventing new fat from forming. The effectiveness is not just in my mind – take a look at the results Phytomer reports:

Perfecting Effect in 28 days: REFINED silhouette – centimeter loss Volume of the thighs: -20%* Volume of the silhouette: -11%* *Average percentage of variation in the volume of the silhouette of 22 women using BodyScan®

While Morpho Designer doesn’t take the place of good nutrition and exercise, it definitely helps out my beach body cause while leaving my skin lightly scented with the pretty lily of the valley fragrance. Used daily and consistently it really works.
