La Prairie · White Caviar Illuminating Pearl Infusion & Crème Extraordinaire

 

Ever wonder what a $690 serum feels like? How about a $900 moisturizer? For Day 5 and to wrap up my Skincare Week of posts, I’m taking you over to the realm of über-luxury via this White Caviar duo from Swiss brand La Prairie. Jaw-dropping factor aside, I have a confession to make: I was actually a little hesitant to begin testing these products out, mainly because I was afraid I’d wind up really, really liking them. Spoiler alert: I should have listened to that inner voice …

IDC · Ultime Collection

 

Unintentionally, as I’ve been getting older my focus appears to be shifting more & more towards skincare — not that my love of makeup is going anywhere soon, mind you. That said and for Day 3 of my Skincare Week series, when I was recently approached to partner up and review the Ultime range from IDC+, a brand founded by brothers Eric & Luc Dupont, that happens to be celebrating its 10th anniversary this year AND which hails from my home province of Québec, I was simultaneously proud, intrigued, and excited; I’m always ready to play guinea pig for you guys, and boy will you want to know more about these products. For real.

Jouviance · Contour+ Sculpting Gel Concentrate

 

Filed under strange but true facts: when most people think of skincare, they rarely include the neck (or décolletage) in their daily regimen, but believe it or not, those are areas that show some of the most obvious signs of skin aging. Also, thanks to the digital age we currently live in, “tech-neck” is now a thing. And I don’t mean that in a positive way, either — but stay with me here, because there’s hope on the horizon. For Day 2 of my skincare series and from the brand that continues to earn my loyalty thanks to some totally kick-ass (and affordable) products, comes the new Contour+ Scuplting Gel Concentrate, specifically created for the afore-mentioned areas. Cue the angelic choir …

Dior · Capture Youth Serums & Age-Delay Advanced Cream

 

Today marks Day 1 of “skincare week” (I recently put out a poll on my Insta Stories asking if you guys would like me to do something like this, and the answer was a resounding YES! By the way, if you’re not already following, come join me on Instagram @ommorphia so you don’t miss out on all the latest beauty & skincare news!) and I’m starting things off with the Capture Youth Collection, one of Dior’s latest — and in my opinion — most unique skincare launches to date. In fact, taking care of your skin just got that much more personal, thanks to these incredible serums.

CHANEL · Nº5 L’Eau All-Over Spray & On Hand Cream

 

I’ve always been that girl who has wanted so badly to wear CHANEL’s original Nº5 perfume, but have never been able to — although I’m still holding out hope for a future point where the two of us will see eye to eye. That’s why when Nº5 L’Eau launched in 2016, my prayers were answered: here was a Nº5 version that fitted me perfectly. For Summer 2018, Olivier Polge, the ‘nose’ behind this iteration, has created a fun new way to sport this fresh scent, launching the All-Over Spray and matching Hand On Cream … and I’m betting that both are going to be spot-on perfect for the season.
