Vie Collection Rosa Control Relief Concentrate for Redness

Vie Collection ROSA CONTROL Relief Concentrate for Redness

The product I’m reviewing today is for those of us who suffer from redness – you know, flushing, erythrosis, couperose, or rosacea  I don’t have a huge problem on my face but my neck is a whole other story. I have major skin redness that sometimes flares up into rosacea that is very uncomfortable.

sample

The Vie Collection ROSA CONTROL Relief Concentrate for Redness ($125) is a lovely, elegant moisturizer that soothes and corrects skin redness and irritation, and specifically reduces flushing, erythrosis, couperose, and rosacea.  This beautiful moisturizer soaks right in without being sticky and it is extremely soothing. It makes my redness disappear, and it neutralizes free radicals and strengthens the skins protective barrier. I also really appreciate that the formula is fragrance free.

You can use this by itself or add it to your current moisturizer, which is what I do in the mornings. At night I apply it by itself to my neck.

If you suffer from flushing, erythrosis, couperose, or rosacea this is a really fantastic product. I have had terrific results! My neck has never looked better. After using this twice a day for a month I’ve gone from flushed, red skin with occasional rosacea to perfectly normal looking skin and no discomfort at all. I typically love Vie Collection Skin Care – it’s top notch stuff – and the Rosa Control Relief Concentrate for Redness is the answer to my flushed skin prayers.

An answer for blackheads and wrinkles: Vie Collection Retinopur

What an interesting skin care product!  Vie Collection RETINOPUR Wrinkles – Imperfections Retinol Fluid ($138) addresses two of my major skin concerns – blackheads and wrinkles.  I can’t think of another product that does that.  Talk about focusing in on exactly what needs to be addressed…and I always love anything that multi-tasks.

sample

Vie Collection Retinopur

The main ingredient in RETINOPUR, which is a light serum, is encapsulated retinol.  This “encourages an anti-wrinkle action as it increases collagen and elastin and a purifying action, exfoliating and unclogging pores to reduce blackheads. The encapsulated delivery of retinol provides a prolonged action of the ingredient over time, limiting the irritation sometimes associated with this cosmeceutical ingredient.” Here are the key ingredients:

Encapsulated Retinolpure retinol is encapsulated, which allows it to be well tolerated by the skin. Provides anti-wrinkle action to promote the synthesis of collagen and elastin, promotes cell renewal and smooths the skin’s micro relief. Provides an anti-imperfection action by promoting exfoliation and the elimination of dead skin cells by unclogging pores and eliminating blackheads.
Lipoaminoacidbi-vectored active ingredient to target skin imbalances, reduce the production of sebum, the number of blackheads, inflammation and bacteria on the skin.

Vie Collection Retinopur

If you have oily skin this is a great product for you.  The lightweight serum is absorbed quickly and easily, and the retinol increases collagen and elastin while also exfoliating and unclogging congested pores.  The serum leaves my skin soft and matte, keeping oily areas under control.  I apply it every morning and night after cleansing as my treatment before moisturizing.

Vie Collection did a study with the RETINOPUR, and here are the results:

ANTI-IMPERFECTION EFFECT IMMEDIATELY*

*Satisfaction test performed on 23 women after twice daily application for 28 days.

** Clinical scores for 23 women after twice daily application for 28 days.

Vie Collection Retinopur

There is a fragrance – it’s a pleasant floral, citrusy fragrance that isn’t overwhelming, but if you can’t tolerate fragrance this would not be a skin care product for you.  Otherwise, I highly recommend it.  I’ve had excellent results.  My skin is much clearer, extractions are very easy and my pores are less congested.  And I definitely see an improvement in my fine lines and wrinkles.  The packaging is perfect with the airless pump, so the efficacy of the retinol is kept intact.

Got wrinkles? Get Vie Time Control Deep Wrinkle Cream

 

I’m not sure why it has taken me so long to write about this gem of a face cream. As of this morning I have used every single iota of the fluffy white fabulousness and I am currently staring at the empty jar in dismay. I’ve got nothing but raves for my Vie Collection TIME CONTROL Deep Wrinkles – Firming EGF Cream ($189.50).

sample

The inspiration behind Vie Collection TIME CONTROL Deep Wrinkles – Firming EGF Cream was Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) injections, so the mission of this wrinkle cream is to eradicate really deep wrinkles, as well as lost elasticity, volume, and sagging facial contours. The formula is truly elegant, with EGF-like peptide, pro-collagen peptides and trace elements and minerals. So, what the heck are EGF’s, you ask? Good question. They are proteins that we naturally have in our skin – they help keep skin looking great by boosting cell growth through bringing together collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin. However, as we get older, our supply of EGF decreases, which is why we develop wrinkles and saggy skin.

Vie Time Control Deep Wrinkle Cream

Vie Time Control Deep Wrinkle Cream

This is really some space age stuff – here’s more explanation of the ingredients:

EGF-Like Peptide

Has the same molecular structure as the EGF
Cell recovery is faster and more efficient
Result: wrinkles are filled, the skin is smoother

Pro-Collagen peptide

Mimics the action of peptides after that are naturally present in the skin
Attaches themselves to the cells
Stimulates collagen production
Result: the skin is re-elastic and firm

Trace elements and minerals

Stimulates intracellular ATP synthesis
Stimulates cell growth
Stimulates cell metabolism
Result: the skin is revitalized, strengthened and returned full of energy

Vie Time Control Deep Wrinkle Cream

 

It does have a light floral/musky scent that quickly dissipates. I found that it made my skin feel amazing – tighter, firmer,  and most definitely less noticeable wrinkles. That is becoming increasingly more important the older I get!! Now, I know the price is spendy but this is a very large jar of product, and when you compare it to other big name skin care lines the price point is actually right in line with them, particularly when you consider the ingredients. Just resist the urge to dig your fingers into the snowy white cream – use a scoop so you don’t accidentally get any unwanted bacteria in your moisturizer.

Right now, if you purchase Vie Time Control at LeSpaUSA you also get a free purse mirror! Sounds like fun to me! You can purchase the Vie Collection at spas as well as online at www.lespausa.com.  – Lisa

Vie Collection Wrinkle Dimension Hyaluronic Acid Concentrate

Vie Wrinkle Dimension

My adoration for the Vie Collection line continues…I got hooked when I started using Chrono Eyes and Mesopeptide Decollete Replenishing Cream (read the review HEREand I’ve been a fan ever since. I’ve been testing the Wrinkle Dimension Hyaluronic Acid Concentrate ($100) for almost four weeks now and my skin has never been happier. Let me tell you all about this fabulous half fluid/half lotion serum that makes fine lines, wrinkles, and crepey skin go buh-bye!                                     sample

Vie Wrinkle Dimension

Vie Wrinkle Dimension

I know, when you hear ‘hyaluronic acid’ it sounds bad – like something that will burn the skin. Actually, this ingredient does the opposite – it holds water into the skin under deep layers, sort of like deep inside a sponge, which gives the skin firmness and that youthful look. As we age, we lose our supply of hyaluronic acid, which is why our skin sags and wrinkles.Wrinkle Dimension helps give back some of what we are losing.

  • Encapsulated High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid: encapsulated in spherulites and acts both in the epidermis and dermis. These spherulites maximize skin penetration and enable the hyaluronic acid to reach the dermis. The different layers of the spherulite gradually open for controlled release of the ingredients and an extended effect. The hyaluronic acid expands on contact with water in the dermis to volumize hollow areas.
  • Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid: This hyaluronic acid has a low molecular weight—between 15,000 and 50,000 Daltons—which enables it to act on very fine lines often related to lifestyle (smoking, sun and pollution) and dehydration. These small molecules of hyaluronic acid penetrate the skin layers, swell on contact with water and accumulate to fill out fine lines. They also limit transepidermal water loss (TEWL) by strengthening the tight junctions. Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid thus improves the cohesion of the skin barrier.
  • High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid: High molecular weight hyaluronic acid plays a vital role in regulating skin hydration thanks to its strong water-retaining power. Like a reservoir, it forms a non-congesting moisturizing film and retains water on the surface of the skin.

The texture is a cross between a serum and a light lotion and it sinks in very quickly. It doesn’t have a discernible scent and it comes in a perfect airless pump container. I put one pump in the morning before my moisturizer, and one pump at night after cleansing. I find that it makes my skin super smooth, plumps up my fine lines and wrinkles, and my skin really looks terrific. I am impressed.

I recently had a pretty bad bout of the flu and I was too sick to even wash my face. The only thing I could bring myself to do was slather on a little serum, so I used my Wrinkle Dimension. I looked in the mirror after a few days and while I had some very dark circles under my eyes, I was really amazed at how firm and hydrated my skin looked. It was pale…and it was thin…but it was pretty!

If you are in the market for an excellent hyaluronic acid product, this has your name on it. You can find Wrinkle Dimension and other Vie Collection products at select spas in the United States and at www.lespausa.com.  – Lisa

Ooooh so good!! Vie Collection Chrono Eyes and Mesopeptide Decollete Replenishing Cream

Vie CollectionI am a huge fan of Phytomer and use their skin care products all the time. I didn’t even realize that Phytomer had a special line called the Vie Collection…but what a wonderful opportunity to try some new skin care from a line I already know is excellent! I typically wait to use a product until after I have my photos, but something about these two items made me want to dig in immediately. Let me tell you, I wasn’t disappointed. You are going to love the Chrono Eyes and the Mesopeptide Decollete Replenishing Cream.                                                                  samples
Vie Collection Chrono EyesVie Collection Chrono Eyes swatchCHRONO EYES ($101) is a wonderful eye cream with an elegant formula that drew me in right away. It gives immediate gratification thanks to a pearlescent finish that instantly brightens the eye area. This isn’t just a one night stand eye cream though. Key ingredients include Encapsulated High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid, Botox-like Peptide, Phytosterols + Fatty Acids, Vitamin C + Vitamin B3. This fabulous cocktail smooths wrinkles, calms puffiness, lightens dark circles, and makes skin look younger. It’s fragrance free and the best news of all – the packaging is an airless pump which means the ingredients won’t lose their efficacy. It’s truly a fabulous eye cream that is well worth the price tag.Vie Collection DecolleteVie Collection Decollete swatch
As much as I love this eye cream, I think I love the Vie Collection Mesopeptide Decollete Replenishing Cream ($120) even more! The first time I smoothed this on my neck I swear the world went into slow motion and I could hear the angels sing. I know, I know, at that price it should turn water into wine, but boy…if you can afford it, this is an amazing luxurious experience.
I cannot believe how soft and smooth my neck and decollete feel after applying this – and not just right after, but all day long. The lotion is creamy yet sort of gel-like at the same time. Like the Chrono Eyes, it has a pearlescent finish which reflect light and makes skin immediately look younger. The ingredients include Peptides, Encapsulated High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid, Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid, and Vitamin C. Vie Collection Mesopeptide Decollete Replenishing Cream will make your neck and chest look and feel beautiful and younger.
I can’t recommend the Vie Collection Chrono Eyes and Mesopeptide Decollete Replenishing Cream highly enough!! I am so excited about both products and I know you will be too.  – Lisa

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
