Lierac Product Review. Part 2.

Hey Beauties,

As a few of you may already know, a few weeks ago, together with several other Maltese Beauty Bloggers, I was invited to attend the official launch of Lierac Products here in Malta. I also attended the introductory seminar last June, after which I posted about the concept that these products are based on and the type of ingredients used in manufacturing them. If you want to know more about this please click HERE.

Also, if you want to know more about were the event took place and photos that I took please check out my facebook page my clicking HERE.

During the event, my guest for the night, Gail, and I were given a few products to test out a few of which I am going to review in this post.

1) Demaquillan Purete Face Wash

The first thing that I noticed about this product is the packaging. I like the fact that it has a pump so there can be better control on how much product is being used.

It has quite a musky smell which is quite unusual from the typical fragrance of other products. It does not bother me that much since it does not linger on the face after using this product.

I use this product at night mainly to take off my makeup. I have to say, it takes off every trace of makeup and leaves the skin squeaky clean. However, I feel that it is a bit harsh for my skin since it is very sensitive. Of course, I use a good moisturiser afterwards. This might not be the case for other skin types.This is the reason why I use this product only at night. I do not think that it has done anything special with regards to my acne, however the benefit is that it eliminates all the dirt off my face.

Overall opinion: I think that this is a very good product and I would recommend it to those searching for a new face wash. It is not the cheapest of products, however a little goes a long way and it will last quite some time.

2) Luminescence Serum

After using the above mentioned face wash, I apply this serum. I really like its consistency, it feels like silk on my skin whilst applying it. Although it is a serum, it does not grease up my face, my skin remains matte but feels moisturised at the same time.
Overall opinion: again I would recommend this product for those searching for a new moisturiser. I think this serum is suitable for every skin type.

3) Mesolift Serum: Radiance Booster (what my friend Gail thinks about this product)

"It felt tingly at first, but it wasn't long enough until my face started to feel more vibrant and energetic. I recommend this product for those feeling stressed and tired due to the negative effects they relinquish onto the skin. The thing I really like about this product is that it enables the face to feel revitalised and moisturised at the same time.

In terms of packaging I really liked the fact that it comes with a pipette, enabling one not to waste product and use too much. This serum contains a variety of vitamins and minerals which is what the skin needs. This results in hydrating the face and making it more healthy.

It has a citrus smell which I personally liked and did not linger on the skin for very long after I applied it.

Overall Opinion: I highly recommend this product to those who experience skin fatigue and any one aged 25 years and over since it contains 'hyaluronic acid' which helps with face elasticity and hydration, therefore it is a great to prevent wrinkles from developing. However, any person with sensitive skin should first consult with one's personal dermatologist with regards to the use of such a product. With regards to pricing, it is not the cheapest but it definitely promises satisfactory results."

Lierac Malta Event: Part 1

Hey Beauties,

Last Wednesday, Beauty is our Passion Blog was invited to attend the launch of a new Skin Care product range, together with other Maltese beauty bloggers: All Things Lady , All Things Fabulous Blog, The Other Side of Cool.
First and foremost, thank you to PharmaMt for giving Beauty is Our Passion Blog the opportunity to attend the event and for giving us all such a nice welcome.
This new Skin Care range is called ‘Lierac Paris’. It is a French brand, which was founded in 1975. The innovative element that sets apart this brand from all the other skin care brands is that the products are based on Phytocosmetics. Strange word is it? Let me explain. This word simply means that the products are plant based and the ingredients are naturally sourced from various plants, flowers and herbs. Your skin will thank you for not using products filled with a lot of harmful chemicals that instead of healing the skin, they just end up damaging it even more.

The main products that ‘Lierac Paris’ offers are anti-aging products. However, it also caters for other types of skin conditions for example, dry and oily skin, acne prone and sensitive skin. It is also offering a new range of tanning products which are ideal for the Summer season.

The main ingredients that the anti-aging products are based upon are: Alchemillo, Ivy and Horsetail plants. Research found that when combined together these three elements boost the synthesis of collagen and elastin which help to prevent and heal wrinkles from developing.

During this event, we tested several products, some of which are the following:
1) Phytolastil
This product claims that it helps diminish the appearance of existing stretch marks in 80% of the cases. I cannot vouch that it does what it claims. First Impression: it has a serum like consistency, upon applying it on my skin it was absorbed immediately and did not leave any product residue, my skin felt smooth and moisturised.

2) Mesolift Cream

This product is part of their Daily Beauty Care. It is a vitamin- enriched radiance booster cream. It claims that it improves skin’s radiance by 98%, and that it plumps and tones the skin. It is made up of Apricot extract and citrus AHA. First Impression: I applied this cream on one hand. When compared to the other I noticed that it had a slight glow to it and it also felt quite moisturised.
3) Multi- Purpose Oil.

Another product that is part of the Daily Beauty Care. Can be used on the face, body and even hair. It is made up of hazelnut, sweet almond and grapeseed argan. Its purpose is to nourish and hydrate. It can be used as a moisturised for face and body, and as a hair treatment. First Impression: it feels like pure silk on the skin and it has a floral fragrance which lingers on the skin.
4) Sunific Powder
This is the last product that I tested. It is part of their Tan Enhancing product range. This product is and Iridescent Powder with SPF 15. Its benefits are that it is anti-wrinkle and anti-brown spots which is suitable for all skin tones. First Impression: it is like a mineral bronzer but with a slight sheen to it. So it can be used not only as a tanning product but also as a makeup product. I like the built in brush that it comes with, it is dense and soft.
That’s all for this post. Please stay tuned for part 2 of Lierac Paris: Products I wish to try and product review.

Until next time,

Take Care,
