I am a Medical Esthetic  Professional. And owner of aura skin care and laser

Proud to be sharing my first experience with the La VieSage skin care products. First, I received algae mask I used at home I have no idea about the results so  I didn’t take pictures. But the pictures I used in the review I do it again after about a month

“What a mess when I do first time on my face my husband said”

Awesome. After when I clean my mask. Everything happens Only the time journey of 20 mins J

But with a hard-green shell cocooning over my skin, its look like someone dipped my face in candle wax.  I feel light weight on my face slightly feeling of compression This is what the La VieSage algae face mask do 🙂

Algae (also seaweed) is a bit of a dark horse of the beauty world. Studies have shown certain extracts have softening, brightening and anti-acne benefits for the skin. Add this to Cranberries, Aloe Vera, Ginseng root and Arbutin packed with their antioxidant and purifying properties and it starts to sound almost luxurious and beneficial.

OK what is algae let me explain. Algae, commonly referred to as “seaweed,” conditions, hydrates, softens and detoxifies the skin, all while replenishing essential vitamins and minerals. Rich in antioxidants, algae also helps to protect skin against free radical damage and prevents the formation of an enzyme that causes the deprivation of collagen.

Recent studies show that algae extract is rich in a compound called Alguronic Acid, shown to increase cell regeneration and the synthesis of elastin. Elastin is a protein in the skin’s underlying layers that give it firmness and elasticity. As we age, skin begins to lose its elastin fibres. Result wrinkles

Some algae even contain Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA), a bacterial microphyte that stimulates skin cell movement and production and is proven to be more abundant in proteins and minerals than a mother’s milk. Algae is also full of enzymes, chlorophyll, amino acids, nucleic acids, fatty acids, and DHA. Amino acids in algae firm and renew tissue while the fatty acids fight against inflammation, leaving the skin even, soft and supple.

La VieSage‘s range of algae face masks come in powder form, infused with fruits and vegetables like pumpkin and papaya. I was given the Ginseng ,Cranberry, and cryogenic soothing Samples to try.

2.Algae Spirulina called the Green Gold

3.Witch Hazel extract: an effective of moisturizing and cell renewal agent

I decided to try out the Cryogenic Soothing one as my skin was looking dull and tired from a few Saturday night cocktails, so I needed a little circulation boost!

It is simple but little tricky You have to set aside a bit of time for these masks, but that’s to be expected with spa products. First you have to mix the powder with water to create a paste. Give few mins to mix well. I use one part powder and two-part water. but I found 10 gm approximately is enough for face only. Then you apply on the face and leave it for 15-20 minutes to set. As it sets you can feel the mask getting tighter and harder, so you can’t talk or move your face.

TOP TIP:  Try to stay on easy recliner chair and have relaxation position make sure do not walk around otherwise mask will start dripping. Lock yourself away and chill out for fifteen minutes.

Fifteen minutes later and you’re ready to peel it off, you can get most of it off in large to small chunks. The smaller bits go flaky like dry paint when the air hits them, but they’re easily  I wept off with regular water wipe.

Expert Advise – I also received sample of serum with this mask from la Viesage representative. I advised to use YouthPreserve capsule or two pump of YouthPreserve serum for best and long lasting results. So, used the Serum first and apply the mask on top after 2-3 min as advised.

Once it was all removed, my skin felt soft, hydrated with glowing face.  And most of the dullness in my cheeks and almost disappeared in 2-3 min. I got the cure to my cocktail and flashy tired face  🙂

La VieSage Flower Acid Peel

La VieSage Flower Acid Peel flower_peel1

La VieSage skin sciences – the new addition is Flower Acid Peel. This is a gentle peel that really does the job. It made skin brighter within days and glowing when used longer term. This great peel has a lasting effect on skin. The ingredients are natural and even sensitive skin can use this peel. This flower peel is impressive: a great product that genuinely improves skin and combats fine lines.

La VieSage Skin sciences are delighted to announce the launch of their exciting new Flower Acid Peel to their growing, all natural, flower and seaweed based skincare range.

Disha  the founder of La VieSage skin sciences says,

“It is amazing nothing is like the Flower Acid Peel, the color, texture, the ingredients and the results are awesome. Our unique Flower Acid Peel works on all skin types for anti-ageing, acne and sensitive skin.

Revitalize, Clarify and Protect Epidermal Stem Cell Activity with the remarkable La VieSage Flower Acid Peel is A proprietary blend of

Hibiscus derived Flower Acid,

Vigna Aconitifolia Seed Extract enhances cell renewal while improving hydration in the upper layers of epidermis,

Pyruvic Acid, stimulate collagen and mucopolysaccharides synthesis and the softening of fine lines.

Micro Alga Cyanidium Calarium supports advanced cellular rejuvenation, enhanced skin elasticity and epidermal integrity

“Above actives help to thicken and strengthen the skin around the eye so help to diminish crow’s feet, Fine lines, boost collagen to firm our skin and also help with uneven skin tone and improve acne scarring. Our Flower  Acid Peel is rich in essential fatty acids for skin repair.”

Their clinical studies show that the Flower acids are :

9% more hydrating than lactic acid

99% non-irritating

20% greater cell renewal compared to other AHA’s (Alpha-Hydroxy Peels)

30% greater anti-wrinkle activity compared with AHA’s

There is a gentle exfoliation without the irritation that is normally associated with alpha-hydroxy peels.

Like other La VieSage products the Flower Acid Peel nourishes and feeds the skin – doing more than just a quick fix. It repairs the epidermis to work and look better.

Our Flower Acid  Peel User says “Using the Flower Peel daily you will see within days healthier, brighter looking skin with great improvement on lines around the eyes.”  Glenda

Roucheal Ned says “to have the  results  for my sensitive dry skin I talk to so many skin care professional everyone just increase the % of  AHAs in my daily routine regimen”

However, in the rush to differentiate themselves in the marketplace, companies added greater concentration of AHA’s to their formulas ranging from 5 and 10% in the beginning to 70% and more with the promise that more is better.

The problem with this approach is evident to us: Over exfoliation leads to over-processed skin; and this can lead to irreversible skin damage.

Now out of South Africa comes a new generation of AHA’s extracted from the Hibiscus Flower.  They are a highly complex pure extract of the hibiscus flower comprising a wide variety of acids as well as powerful antioxidants.

The result is a multi-functional ingredient that gently promotes exfoliation while nourishing the skin with protective antioxidants with anti-inflammatory properties to strengthen the skin’s support matrix and firm the skin. The result is a peel without the burn with the objective of skin firming.

Here is a breakdown of the unique phyto-chemistry of Flower Acids.

Bio-Complex of alpha hydroxyl acids—Phytic, Pyruvic, Mandelic and Azaleic which provide a gentle exfoliation while stimulating collagen synthesis

Polyphenols are powerful antioxidants. Tee et al. 2002 assessed the antioxidant properties of Hibiscus by comparing its activity with those of BHA and b-carotene

Anthocyanins (deep purple pigment in the flower) are a major component of hibiscus that reduce oxidative stress on DNA and act as a sunscreen in absorbing UV rays (Duhn et al, 1997

Flower Acids (Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower Extract) – A blend of organic and Pyruvic Acids that are non-irritating to the skin. Gently activates cellular turnover to improve hydration and contribute to better nourishment and hydration of upper layers of epidermis. Pyruvic Acid stimulates collagen and mucopolysaccharides synthesis.

Vit-A-Like™ – Is a plant extract with the same functionality and efficacy as retinol. It stimulates cell turnover, thereby helping to minimize irregular skin tone and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Cistus Incanus Extract (Tego Cistus) – DNA protection, strong anti-oxidative efficacy, anti-inflammatory effects,delivers daylight defense, and protects from environmental stress.

Tego Stemlastin (Algae Extract) – Naturally derived from Cyanidium Caldarium Algae which is rich in extremolytes-like mineral nutrients, amino acids and polyphenols and GABA (gamma amino butryric acid). Stimulates epidermal stem cells and dermal fibroblasts. Significantly supports the maintenance of epidermal stem cell activity encouraging skin rejuvenation.

Acti White – Is a new skin lightener demonstrating the capacity to decrease melanogenesis which is responsible for the coloration of the human skin. This tyrosinase inhibiting activity results in a visible reduction in skin pigmentation.

 

Compared to conventional AHA’s, and  Flower acids from hibiscus are:

50% more hydrating

20% greater cellular turnover than AHA’s and salicylic acid

30% reduction in appearance of wrinkles by inhibiting elastase and hyaluronidase breakdown of connective tissue

Anti-Inflammatory properties exhibiting an absence of the ‘burn’ (Levy and Goldschmidt 1979)

Ironically this has been somewhat problematic in convincing clients of its efficacy.

The lack of a burning sensation leads some to assume that the product is ‘not working’ as it should.

This is a misconception.

The pyruvic acid being a second-generation acid exhibits greater keratolytic properties like the properties found in salicylic acid.

This acid dissolves proteins responsible for cell adhesion due to its higher keratolytic effects more effectively than lactic acid.

Moreover, as these acids are formulated into a seaweed polysaccharide base extracted from Laminaria and Fucus algae, the non-irritating benefits are enhanced.

La VieSage skin sciences range contains no animal products

Can be applied to:

In Short Skin Type: Dry | Sensitive | Dehydrated | Hyperpigmented |Aging |Acne| Rosacea

How to use:  Patch test recommended to make sure about the allergies.  Apply a moderate layer of product over cleansed face and neck, avoiding eye area. A brief stinging sensation may be felt upon application, and should dissipate quickly. Leave on for 10 minutes. Remove thoroughly with cool water. If irritation develops, discontinue use and consult your skincare professional.

The Flower Acids peel of La VieSage augmented by the marine algae polysaccharides have numerous applications in the treatment of blemishes and helps relieve the symptoms of rosacea, eczema and psoriasis to calm inflammation and restore stronger, more youthful looking skin.
