Wrinkle Dimension

Vie Collection Wrinkle Dimension
New from Vie Collection: Wrinkle Dimension.

Vie Collection affirms its anti-aging expertise by drawing inspiration from hyaluronic acid injections with WRINKLE DIMENSION Hyaluronic Acid Concentrate.
This semi-fluid, half-lotion serum brings together a trio of hyaluronic acid, the benchmark molecule approved by dermatologists and used in optimum concentrations to effectively act on crepey and wrinkled skin. Hyaluronic acid helps to maintain optimum levels of hydration within the skin by trapping water in deep layers, in the same way as a sponge, strengthening skin cohesion and increasing firmness. Over time, hyaluronic acid contained in the body decreases by half, making WRINKLE DIMENSION an appropriate year-round solution to provide maturing and wrinkled skin with a perfect supply of hyaluronic acid for an instantly rejuvenating effect.

Directions for use: apply several drops before face cream, morning and evening.

Key ingredients:

•Hyaluronic Acid Trio:
Encapsulated High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid - deep wrinkles are filled and hollow areas are volumized thanks to the strategic shape and controlled release of ingredient.
Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid - small molecules of hyaluronic acid penetrate skin layers, swell on contact with water and accumulate to fill fine lines, smoothing surface wrinkles.
High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid - plays a vital role in regulating skin hydration thanks to its strong water-retaining power. Skin is moisturized and transepidermal water loss is stopped.

Controlled Chaos Curl Creme Giveaway

Controlled Chaos Curl Creme
WIN! Calling all Curly Girls! Head on over to our Facebook page and tell us what you use. We're giving away a full-sized bottle!

Controlled Chaos is unlike any other curl product, leaving curls soft, shiny and frizz-free without feeling and looking crispy or oily.

All-In-One: Curl Creme replaces the most commonly 'cocktailed' curl products: detangler, leave-in, curl definer, heat/UV protectant and shine spray.

Controlled Chaos is formulated with organic botanicals and is gluten, paraben and sulfate-free. Packaging is BPA-free.

The Curl Creme is revolutionizing the concept of 'product memory'.   Once dry, the hair can be worn up, moved around-even stretched-and it will return to it's gorgeous looking state.  This part is completely unheard of in the category.
Curl Creme works to repair hair over time, equalizing porosity, adding moisture, softening and conditioning.  This will improve color-processed, damaged and porous textures with continued use.

Makeup Safety

Beauty Product Safety
If you have been following us for the last 12 years you know how much we talk about ingredients in beauty and grooming products. We're pretty disappointed that we still have to talk about it in regard to beauty products manufactured in the USA (European, Canadian and Japanese products are so much "cleaner").

The Johnson & Johnson verdict on talc is a shining example of the overhaul that needs to take place in the beauty industry.

Use this graph to make some changes in your grooming product regimen - we understand that this information may be daunting and we suggest that you make changes slowly. As you finish a product, replace it with a healthier alternative. Baby steps.
