Phytomer Morpho Designer and Phytoceane Bora-Bora Sensory Bath

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

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.

Phytomer review and giveaway!

Phytomer and their sister brand Phytoceane are French-based professional skin and body care lines found in high-end spas all over the world. They recently sent me some really terrific products. I fully expected them to be awesome since Phytomer is one of the few spa brands with their very own laboratory and team of scientists.

We think Phytomer is so fantastic we wanted to share it with you!  The products Phytomer sent to test include Remodele Tonic Body Gel ($73), Douceur Intemporelle Restorative Shield Cream ($125.50), and Phytoceane Youth Smoothing Cream ($76.50). They also sent us a cosmetics bag and a travel size skin care set that you can WIN!

Phytomer Remodele Tonic Body Gel

Phytomer Remodele Tonic Body Gel

I am obsessed with my Phytomer Remodele Tonic Body Gel. It has a sparkling pearly blue color that give skin a subtle sheen. When applied, it soothes and cools the skin like a dip in the ocean. This firming gel gives you noticeably firmer skin in one month. I am reminded of this every time I put it on because it feels like a ‘swim in the sea’ and firms me up so I can hit the beach! I have been slathering this on my legs, tummy, and arms and I am to the point of addiction. I can’t believe how smooth and soft it makes my skin, which shouldn’t surprise me since Phytomer says this gel hydrates skin +91% in just 15 minutes! It does have a light fragrance that is a spicy/floral with tea rose, jasmine, and white musk. The firming happens thanks to Eco-Chlorella, an extract of green algae that has tons of peptides and amino acids.  This is a real winner.

Phytomer Restorative Shield Cream

Phytomer Restorative Shield Cream

The Phytomer Douceur Intemporelle Restorative Shield Cream is a terrific product to use, especially after swimming in lakes or oceans. The active ingredient is Glyocosea, a combination of marine sugars, minerals and trace elements that neutralizes inflammation and relieves itchiness and red patches. Living in Michigan, we are surrounded by lakes which means lots of fun, but also irritated skin from that water. You won’t believe the texture and feel of this elegant cream…if I could, I would eat it with a spoon. This beautiful, lightweight moisturizer relieves inflammation and makes me feel fantastic.

Phytomer Youth Smoothing Cream

Phytomer Youth Smoothing Cream

I am also loving Phytoceane’s Youth Smoothing Cream.  Youth Smoothing Cream is a part of a new anti-aging collection and what interested me were the five key ingredients for softening and smoothing skin:

Pistacia Resin Oil: boosts the collagen production, the firmness is improved

Marine Samphire Oil: smoothing, regenerating, redensifying

Gorse Oil: stimulates cellular renewal, anti-slackening

Phormidium: protective and restorative against free radicals

Marine Spring Water: antioxidant, regenerating and skin anti-slackening

This does have a fragrance, it’s a floral scent with violet, rose, jasmine and lily of the valley. If you like fragrance in skin care, you will love this because it is a super pretty scent. You will also love what it does to your skin, because it leaves you smooth and glowing. It’s great stuff.

All of these products can be purchased at select spas and

Mesoforce Hydra Revitalizing Cream will have your face thanking you

Mesoforce from the Vie Collection

Mesoforce from the Vie Collection

There’s no doubt that winter is here and there’s no doubt that our skin needs extra hydration and moisturizing. MESOFORCE HYDRA REVITALIZING CREAM from the Vie Collection of Phytomer was sent in the fall but it wasn’t fully appreciated until winter began. Vie Collection products are a special line from Phytomer. According to Vie, Mesoforce “takes its inspiration from mesotherapy to revitalize the skin.” Using this cream is a great solution since mesotherapy involves injections of pharmaceutical and homeopathic medications into subcutaneous fat. (source Wikipedia). Since I’m not interested in injections I prefer using this cream instead.

Mesoforce contains a cocktail of vitamins and antioxidants. It’s a thick cream yet it sinks into skin quickly. It’s recommended for use day and night though I tend to use it just at night. They say that within a month you’ll find that your fine lines will have visibly faded. I’m not sure if they’ve faded but there is a nice effect from the cream.



This hydrating moisturizer does have a fragrance to it but it’s one I can tolerate. I think of all the good ingredients in it (like hyaluronic acid, shea butter, olive and jojoba oil) and allow those to plump and illuminate my skin.

This isn’t inexpensive but it’s a very big jar at 1.6 oz and will last a long time. At stores like Dermstore it’s $153 but I just found it online at DermAvenue on sale for $107 (this isn’t necessarily an endorsement of DermAvenue since I’ve never shopped there).

Your skin needs some pampering and this is a product that will do just that for you.– Marcia
