Luxurious Fall Skincare Routine with Lavelier

November 2, 2018 in Beauty, Skin Care - No Comments

The Marine Essential Collection by Lavelier was sent to me for my consideration. I added it to my skincare routine for the last 4 weeks. I did not receive the entire collection, but will be reviewing the products that I did receive. All opinions are my own.

My skincare routine is something that I change quite often, mainly so that my skin doesn’t get “used to” specific products. Cold temperatures and harsh winds can affect the quality of your skin, so during the Fall and Winter months, I love changing up my skincare to thick and rich products, that help to protect my skin. When I read up on Lavelier and their Marine Essentials Collection, I was really excited and knew that I wanted to try it. Since I’m pushing 30, I’m all about quality anti-aging products.

IMG_6968 (1) I didn’t receive the entire line (though I definitely want to try their Fine Line Eye Serum and their Nourishing Night Serum + Vitamin C), but the products I did receive I absolutely love.

Why is a skincare routine important?

Our skin is the largest organ on our bodies, and it’s so important to keep it healthy so that our body can fight infection. Not only that, but with great skin comes a great makeup application. Makeup can really only do so much and go so far, if it’s being applied to skin that is well taken care of, it’s going to look better!

Biology Mousse Cleanser

IMG_7004I’ve been using the Biology Mousse Cleanser 2x a day, it lives in my shower, and I’m really loving it. It’s thick and rich, but it has a tiny bit of grit to it. It’s really great at removing my makeup and any impurities from my skin. It leaves it feeling clean, but also smooth and soft! Even with the thick formula, it doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy–definite plus! I’m enjoying this cleanser so much. I don’t think that I’ve ever used a cleanser so rich, that leaves my skin feeling moisturized after use.

Intensive Facial Peel

IMG_7025It’s been a long time since I’ve used any kind of peel on my skin, because I am always afraid that they will be too harsh. This Intensive Facial Peel was surprisingly gentle, it didn’t irritate my skin while using it. And while there was a tiny bit of redness immediately following use (I think it had more to do with “vigorously massaging” it into my skin, per the directions), it went away quickly. It contains Nut Shell Powder, which doesn’t really add grit to the product, but promotes healthy cell growth. Helping your skin from the inside out. It’s also infused with Coral Seaweed, which helps leave your skin looking brighter and feeling tighter. It left my skin feeling squeaky clean, which is my favorite. I’ve also noticed a difference in the texture of my skin as well. I’ve been using it 1-2x a week for the last 3 weeks.

Marine Deep Moisturizer

IMG_7026The Marine Deep Moisturizer is formulated for all skin types, and infused with Green Tea Extract and Retinyl Palmitate which helps to soothe dry rough skin and fight fine lines and fatigue. While it is a lush and rich cream, it’s very lightweight and goes on the skin so smoothly. It’s perfect for everyday, and goes great underneath makeup. This moisturizer is a great find for the effects that the cold weather can have on the skin, as well as those who have dry skin all year round. It is packed with antioxidants and nutrients that are beneficial for overall skin health.

Marine Evening Repair Cream

IMG_7005 I am a huge fan of really thick and rich night creams, because I feel like it soaks into your skin all night. This Marine Evening Repair Cream doesn’t disappoint. It’s been infused with the Shea Butter and Coral Seaweed extract, this evening repair cream helps to firm and plump skin while retaining the skin’s moisture levels, allowing you to wake up to luminous, beautiful skin. I always feel super luxurious at night when I am putting this on.

*Quick Tip for All Moisturizers*- Be sure to apply product not only to face, but to your neck and décolletage as well.

Eye Firming Concentrate

IMG_7015 (1) The Eye Firming Concentrate is infused not only with marine botanicals, but encapsulated caffeine as well. Caffeine is great for the under eye area since it helps eyes to look more rested, relaxed, and awake. (Something that I definitely need). This concentrate is lightweight and is great for the sensitive skin underneath your eyes. I love it because it doesn’t feel heavy, and blends in to the under eye area really well. Always make sure that you have an eye cream in your skincare routine, I feel like the skin under our eyes is always looked over–and it needs the most love!

Advanced Marine Bio-Syringe

IMG_7001 This one was a little intimidating when I first saw it, I mean… it’s a syringe. But, the packaging is seriously brilliant. The Advanced Marine Bio-Syringe delivers targeted anti-aging ingredients straight to your areas of most concern. It is formulated with Hyaluronic Acid (anti-aging holy grail ingredient), and DMAE. Both of these ingredients together help to decrease the appearance of expression lines and leaves the skin looking more youthful. A little bit of product goes a long way, and my face feels immediately tighter after applying it. I’ve been using it on my forehead and my smile lines a few times a week.

Overall, I love all of these products. My favorites are the Biology Mousse Cleanser, Eye Firming Concentrate, and the Marine Evening Repair Cream. They have changed the appearance and feel of my skin for the better, and I am so happy to have added them to me skincare routine.

  • Over the weekend, we worked as a family on our #BuildThanks Project. We teamed up with @LowesHomeImprovement and I would love for you guys to join us! #LowesPartner⠀
⠀
All you have to do is create a message of love, hope, encouragement, and thanks for the people in your community who are facing this crisis head on every single day. 
This can be anyone from healthcare workers and first responders to grocery store clerks and your local mail carrier and package deliverers. Or all of the above! ⠀
It is super easy to do, using items you already have around your home! For us—that was art supplies because we have baskets overflowing with things line construction paper, crayons, markers, etc. ⠀
⠀
This is a great way to spend some quality time engaging with your kids and inspiring some creativity, all while being able to support and thank your local community (from inside) for all of the things that they’re doing for us during this time. ⠀

  • It’s the weekend! ⠀
⠀
You know what that means! ...#StayHome and #FlattenTheCurve. ⠀
⠀
▪️(Thank you to all of the essential workers around the country who don’t have this luxury and are depending on us to do what we can to help.) ▪️ It’s scary, I know. 
It feels isolating, I know. ⠀
It’s frustrating, I know. ⠀
You are craving some normalcy, I know. ⠀
⠀
But look, the sooner we all fall in line and do the *one thing* we know can work and stop the fast spread of this virus, the sooner we can get back to our usual routines. ⠀
⠀
We are all in this together...⠀

  • ☣️ STOP ☣️⠀
⠀
We have to act NOW to save lives. Listen up.⠀
⠀
While panic is never preferable- if that's what it takes for you to stay home and slow the spread, then maybe you need to get scared. ⠀
⠀
People are exponentially spreading this disease with no symptoms. We have all GOT TO STAY HOME. No more lunch with the ladies. No more playground meetups. ⠀
⠀
STOP IT ALL IMMEDIATELY. SHUT IT ALL DOWN.⠀
⠀
There are otherwise healthy children and young adults on *limited supply* ventilators right now. This virus is brand new to the entire world and it is ravaging people's bodies in unexpected fatal ways- and no, not just the elderly or compromised.⠀
⠀
Math is math. We are already projected to run out of lifesaving equipment and supplies very quickly. ⠀
⠀
This is not media hype, this is not a hoax, this is real. It may be easy to forget that we are in the middle of a dangerous pandemic while the sun is out, traffic is light, and you are off work.⠀
⠀
There are no sirens going off or bombs exploding in your front yard, but I can promise you that we are in a very real crisis. However, we have SOME control.⠀
⠀
The longer we wait and the more we continue to socialize with each other and expose ourselves in public the longer we will be stuck in isolation, the longer people will be out of work, the longer our children won't have school, the longer our economy will suffer.⠀
⠀
Keep in mind that Wuhan did a very tight lockdown and they have STILL been quarantined for two months now and cannot lift the quarantine until they have gone 28 days without a new positive result. The US government has been very lax in comparison and this will not bode well for us if we don't do better NOW.⠀
⠀
This won't last forever, but our future WILL look a lot different based on the choices we make. ⠀
⠀
Just because the government did not force you to stay home or because your favorite restaurant, store or salon has chosen not to close does not mean you should leave your home.⠀
⠀
➡️*obviously this is intended for people who are VOLUNTARILY not staying home.*⬅️⠀
WORK. ESSENTIALS. HOME. THAT SHOULD BE IT!⠀
⠀
DO YOUR PART. ⠀
STAY HOME. ⠀
SAVE LIVES.⠀
⠀

  • Well. This wasn’t what I was going for today #creativeathomechallenge. It’s been pretty chilly haha...puns (don’t let that beautiful sky deceive you) and my plans to get a picnic together for lunch this afternoon were ruined. Maybe I can do that finally on back yard day 😂😂
Trying to support businesses and third party delivery services like Door Dash and their drivers—they now offer contact free deliveries, which is greatly appreciated to get a mild feeling of normalcy, one of my favorite dinners. It’s something small and easy that you can do if you’re able. Some of these DD drivers are relying solely on people to still order so that they can make money. #stayhome #flattenthecurve #slowthespread
