RETINOPUR

New from Vie Collection:  RETINOPUR - WRINKLES and IMPERFECTIONS RETINOL FLUID

VIE Collection is extending its anti-aging expertise to include combination to oily skin types with RETINOPUR Wrinkles -
Imperfections Retinol Fluid.

Wrinkles are a major concern for women. They start appearing around the age of thirty and become more pronounced over the years. Women with combination or oily skin often face a 2nd challenge: imperfections. While acne usually disappears in
adolescence, more than two women out of three* aged between 30 and 45 have both wrinkles and imperfections e.g. acne, large pores, spots, blackheads, excess sebum, wrinkles, etc.

RETINOPUR relies on the effectiveness of retinol to correct wrinkles and imperfections on combination to oily skin.

ANTI-WRINKLE ACTION
- Promotes production of new collagen and elastin
- Promotes cell renewal
- Smooths the skin

ANTI-IMPERFECTION ACTION
- Promotes exfoliation of dead skin cells
- Unclogs pores and helps eliminate blackheads

Hydra Glow

New from Phytocéane: HYDRA-GLOW FUSION CREAM to restore and maintain optimal skin hydration. Formulated with RubiMarin®, known as the ultra-moisturizing “Gem of the Sea” and glasswort oil, it drenches the skin in moisture and freshness. Its cream-in-water formulation “breaks” or separates when applied; the aqueous phase provides a burst of hydration and a thirst-quenching sensation while the cream phase melts on the skin, locking in moisture and leaving a soft matte finish. Ideal for all skin types, HYDRA-GLOW FUSION CREAM is designed to be very lightweight, yet provide ultimate comfort. It’s formulated with natural pigments and pearlescent
particles in a universal color to add a sun-kissed glow to the skin. It has a musk, floral and aquatic scent and brings refreshment to all the senses while leaving the skin soft and smooth.

Directions for use: Apply morning and/or evening to perfectly cleansed face and neck.

Key ingredients:

• RubiMarin® - extract of red vegetal coral sustainably …

Stay Frizz-Free Forever

5 Ways to Stay Frizz-Free Forever:

Curl types vary, but if there’s one struggle all girls face, it’s frizz. Luckily, the folks at Controlled Chaos have unlocked the secret to banishing frizz once and for all with the revolutionary Controlled Chaos Curl Crème. When applied correctly, it’s all you need to win this game for good. Keep reading for five ways to embrace your new frizz-free lifestyle.

1. Moisturize like you mean it! Thirsty hair = frizzy hair.
2. Apply Curl Crème to soaking wet hair and blot gently with a microfiber towel or even a plain cotton t-shirt.
3. Keep your hands to yourself! Brushing or touching your hair while it’s drying can trigger a frizz fiasco.
4. Air dry if possible, or blow dry sparingly with a diffuser (never without!).
5. Once dry, flip your hair upside down and gently scrunch your curls to encourage softness and volume. (We like to do this step with just a small dab of Controlled Chaos on our hands!)

Time Control Cream

VIE Collection extends its TIME CONTROL anti-aging expertise to skin slackening.

TIME CONTROL Deep Wrinkles Firming EGF Cream draws its inspiration from redensifying EGF* to combat deep wrinkles, devitalization, loss of elasticity, loss of volume and sagging facial contours.
EGFs are proteins that are naturally present in the skin and are able to boost cell growth capability and regeneration by initiating the synthesis of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. With age, the concentration of EGFs in the body decreases and signs of aging appear: devitalized skin, deep wrinkles and slackening of tissues.

VIE Collection visibly reverses all signs of skin slackening with TIME CONTROL Deep Wrinkles - Firming EGF Cream.

*Epidermal Growth Factors.

EGFs:
Considered the most powerful cosmetic active ingredient for reversing the biological signs of aging, EGFs are naturally present
in the skin.

MODE OF ACTION OF EGFs:
- Produced when the body activates tissue repair following a skin "wound&q…

She Was Warned

5"x5" sticker now.
When I was 12 my grandmother gave me a refrigerator magnet that stated, "A closed mouth gathers no foot".
I've always been "shushed" or told to "be still", and I have persisted my entire life.

My grandmother loved me. Even if I didn't keep my mouth shut.

Thanks to Brett Hurlbut for the design work. I'll love you always.

Vie Collection GLYCO 10

Vie Collection reasserts its medi-exclusive expertise with GLYCO 10 RESURFACING ACID CONCENTRATE, the at-home resurfacing peel for a “new skin” effect. Formulated with an ideal concentration of 10% glycolic acid, this peel gently but effectively stimulates cellular renewal for a controlled, progressive resurfacing action without discomfort. Complementary ingredient pyrrolidone carboxylic acid, an acid naturally occurring in the body but lost with age, intensely moisturizes the skin, helping to retain optimal hydration for maintained softness and suppleness. GLYCO 10 is fragrance free and has a serum-like gel consistency which is readily absorbed by the skin for easy application before a regular skin care cream. It may be used alone for instant smoothing effects and progressive resurfacing, or as a preparatory solution before professional peel treatments. Day after day, skin texture is refined, pores are tightened and the complexion appears fresher, smoother and brighter.

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.

Controlled Chaos Curl Creme Giveaway

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

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.

Hygge

Our Wicked lotion candle maker was interviewed by the Pioneer Press on the Danish practice of hygge.

Pronunciationand explanation.

Our 3waybeauty Wicked candles are perfect for the practice of hygge, as you will not only enjoy the flickering ambiance and delectable aroma of our essential oil blended candles, but you may rub the warmed GMO-free soy into your skin as a wonderful winter body moisturizer.
Better yet, after 85+ hours of hygge-time, run that used-up Wicked candle glass through the dishwasher and pour yourself a glass of wine, light another Wicked candle, and continue to sip and snuggle winter away in optimum hygge style.

Salut.
