Crème de la Mer The Lifting Eye Serum - Lift & Firm Your Eyes like Magic !

When it comes to eye beauty treatment products, I've always been skeptical & won't give into the hype easily; no matter how fabulous those "Reviews" I've read ..... well until I tried "The lifting eye serum" by Crème de la Mer, it's a magic in a bottle! (yes you will be like yeah.. yeah... you said you don't believe in reviews, well I have photo of before & after to show you in this post)

I just turned 43 this year and the Earth's gravity has not been kind to my skins in my under eye area! I have very little under eye bags just 2 years ago and all of the sudden, my under eye bags getting bigger and bigger! So big, I think it can have its own zip code LOL. So desperately I am searching for a good eye cream / serum to help stopping this under eye bag madness.... I've tried so many products, from Clarins, Shiseido, Clinique.... they were all great moisturizer providing moisture for your eye area but nothing helped to reduce the size of my under eye bags and minor dark circle. So one day I decided to go to Nordstrom and got a bottle of the lifting eye serum by La Mer, just in 12 days ( I started using it on 8-1-2016) my under eye area appears much more firmer & brighter than before ! of course nothing can cure or get rid of under eye bags completely, that's something for those cosmetic surgeons on Beverly Hills to do their magics, but this eye serum has worked wonders for me!

Here is a before and after photo of me. One taken on 8-1-2016 (Left) and the after photo taken on 8-12-2016 (Right). I promise, there is no photoshop retouching, no special lightening effect, just a REAL before & after photo so you can judge for yourself.

This photo is when I just receive it from Nordstrom on 8-1-2016

Here is the before and after photo in just 12 days. You can see my under eye bags are reduced dramatically and the minor dark circles are gone! Click on the photo to view in larger size (yes you'll see my pores LOL)

The texture of this serum is very light and thin, not sticky at all! I apply it around my eyes after washing my face & toner. After apply the eye serum, I count to 10 to let it completely sink into my skin then I apply my eye cream on top of it. Here is some info about of this fabulous eye serum.

A luxurious lift from La Mer. With our new interlaced Stretch Matrix Complex, this precision serum helps visibly support the “architecture” of the eye and brow area. Sea botanicals promote the natural production of elastin, helping the visible effects heighten with time. The look is rejuvenated and uplifted. Suspended in time.

With applicator, gently smooth a drop around each eye morning and evening. Follow with your La Mer eye treatments.

Size: 0.5oz $240.00

I know price tag is hefty... but a little goes a long way! I would say this bottle can easily last 4 to 6 months. If you are looking for something that can help reduce your big under eye bags and dark circle, I would recommend you to go to your local department store and get some sample to try it! I think you will be as happy as I am with the result that delivered by La Mer the lifting eye serum !

You can get this eye serum at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale's, Saks Fifth AvenueNordstrom, Barneys New York &

Until next time, be well and look fabulous!

SK-II Cellumination Mask-In Lotion - Luminosity in the bottle!

I live in the beautiful California, where every day is sunny and perfect for the beach! The weather is great but the constant sun exposure has left some marks on my skin. Also because of my acne marks, it made my skin tone looks uneven and lack of luster. So I’ve been looking for some skin brightening products that will help me to get rid of the dark acne marks and make my skin tone more even looking. I recently got a bottle of the cellumination mask-in lotion, OMG! is like a "Magic" in a bottle!

Many might be confused about what exactly is this for? It’s light & liquid consistency makes it not really a mask (but it does offers mask-like hydration benefits) or a lotion texture kind of moisturizer… but it is a very great Toner / Softner for all skin types.

The whole Cellumination collection (Cream, Mask-In Lotion & Aura Bright Essence) delivered just as they advertised! A brighter, crystal clear skin that has an “Aura” glow from within (maybe that’s why they make the bottles has this rainbow aurora borealis effect) and adding luminosity to your skin.

Here is the commercial from Asia for the SK II 2 Cellumination Aura Bright essence

Not like other brand’s "Whitening & Brightening" products, this cellumination mask in lotion contains a nice mix of water-binding agents, an anti-irritant, the cell-communicating & whitening brightening ingredient such as Niacinamide, and vitamin C (ascorbyl glucoside).

I just used it for 1 week and already seeing a big difference! My acne scar has faded dramatically and the uneven skin tone has transformed to a more even and “brighter” shade! It hydrates and brightens my skin, just having a healthier glow to it. Here is my before and after photo just after 1 week of uses of the Cellumination Mask-in Lotion ( I use it twice a day, morning & evening).

For those who wants to know the ingredients of this product

Aqua (Water), Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate, Glycerin, Niacinamide (Brightening & whitening), Butylene Glycol, Pentylene Glycol, Diphenylsiloxy Phenyl Trimethicone, Glycereth-25 PCA Isostearate, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Ascorbyl Glucoside (Vitamin C for brightening & whitening), Centella Asiatica Extract, Nylon-12, Sodium Hyaluronate, Saccharomyces Cerevisiae Extract, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Aminomethyl Propanol, Disodium EDTA, Xanthan Gum, Benzyl Alcohol, Sodium Benzoate, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Parfum (Fragrance).

I highly recommend the Cellumination mask-in lotion to use as a toner. With great result like this, I am going to go buy the rest of the Cellumination collection for a complete brightening benefit.

Crème de la Mer the Miracle Cream of the Sea - My 1 week Transformation Review


I’ve heard all of the amazing reviews and miracle stories about the legendary face cream " Crème de la Mer " ever since I was in my early 20s. Now I’ve just turned 40 this year, I start to noticed my face starts to droop & sagging downwards, enlarge pores & uneven skin tone; due to old age but also daily stress from work during the day and staying late at night finishing up my design projects. So one day I decided to splurge and treat myself a bottle of Crème de la mer! OMG! the "miracle" transformation stories you’ve been hearing are all true and plus more! I am truly impressed by the result I got just with 1 week use of the original moisturizer version of the crème de la mer!

So before I show you my before and after photo of my zoom in close up shot of my face, let me tell you a little history about the crème de la mer. Half a century ago, aerospace physicist Dr. Max Huber suffered burns in a laboratory accident. Neither medicine nor science offered the benefits Dr. Huber sought, and he began a personal quest to transform the look of his skin. 12 years passed. 6,000 experiments were conducted. Finally, he perfected the precious, nurturing Miracle Broth™ using sea kelp, which he incorporated into the very first La Mer formula, the Crème de la Mer.
