2 New Skin Boosters – Perricone Vitamin C Ester 15% & StriVectin-SD Power Serum For Wrinkles

.

Recently, I was privileged to be invited by Luxasia Singapore for a cozy private dinner (a table of 10 including 4 guests and myself) to preview 2 of their latest anti-aging treatments – Perricone Vitamin C Ester 15% and StriVectin-SD Power Serum For Wrinkles.

It was a super relaxing dinner and we have a great time sharing beauty tips and preferred skincare regimens. Being an anti-aging skincare fanatic, I’m always on the lookout for skincare products that are well packed and formulated with Vitamin C. So when I was introduced to Perricone Vitamin C Ester 15%, I was super excited! Vitamin C is great!

Perricone Vitamin C Ester 15% – S$198 / 4 x 10ml

Perricone Vitamin C Ester 15% is a revolutionary night treatment formulated with 15% Vitamin C Ester to boost collagen production, firm and smooth skin texture and brighten skin’s appearance.

Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant and is proven to help boost collagen production and brighten up the skin tone. It may also help to reverse sun-damaged skin. In fact, I have been using a well-packed 5% Vitamin C (L-ascorbic Acid) serum for a while and I can actually see results from it.

Though Vitamin C is very potent (at high concentration) however it is pretty unstable hence how the product is packed actually plays an important role for the efficacy of the product. I must say Perricone Vitamin C Ester 15% is probably one of the best packed high concentration Vitamin C products available in the market.

WH Photo-White Brief Introduction

Presently, WH Photo-White range actually comprises of StriVectin WH Photo-White Booster Serum, Spot Repair and Day Lotion SPF 30. A fourth product, Hydrating Night Cream, will probably be launched in later part of the year.

WH Photo-White, formulated with vitamin C complex® and NIA-114, help diminish the appearance of excess pigmentation (such as dark spots and skin discoloration) and skin becomes more even toned, brighter and radiant.

Its patented formula NIA-114 is claimed to be clinically proven to be 6x more effective than brightening actives alone in just 4 weeks.

StriVectin-WH Photo-White treatments works on three levels to:

  • Slow down the production of melanin
  • Normalize the transfer of pigment and improve the overall quality of the cell
  • Increase cell turnover to reveal those higher quality cells and get rid of dark spots
    and discolorations quicker!

Ingredients

StriVectin WH Photo-White Booster Serum ingredient list.

StriVectin WH Photo-White Day Lotion SPF 30 ingredient list.

Proprietary NIA-114 (niacin, in the form of Nicotinic Acid) targets the triggers that cause hyperpigmentation by normalizing the transfer of pigments, and rebuilding skin health so you can hold onto new radiance.

Natural Tyrosinase Inhibitors, Vitamin C and Synovea® Skin Brightener (hexylresorcinol), help to regulate melanin formation, which is the source of dark spots, sun spots and age spots.

Vitamin C (stable ascorbyl glucoside) diminishes melanin production, reduces existing melanin, stimulates collagen and acts as a strong antioxidant.

Willowbark Extract, a natural form of salicylic acid, generates cell turnover to shed pigmented cells and improve skin texture.

Betaine, from Sugar Beet, a natural skin softener, minimizes transepidermal water loss (TEWL) for an overall smoother, healthier-looking complexion.

Pomegranate Extract, a powerful antioxidant, aids in enhancing cell turnover.

.

Recently, I was privileged to be invited to preview StriVectin newest and first whitening range – WH Photo-White which will be launching at all StriVectin stores in March 2012. It seems to be a glowing trend in cosmetics industry to launch whitening products especially during the month of February to April.

Having fun at the event, I was laughing at the polaroid of myself.

StriVectin, popular for its former famous deliver message “Better than Botox”, has recently revamped their products in August 2010.

StriVectin new improved formula NIA-114, a patented form of the skin nutrient niacin, is formulated with new more powerful collagen peptides to help rebuild skin layers and reduce all types of wrinkles in 8 weeks. StriVectin’s proprietary NIA-114 molecule, backed by over 30 global patents and 25 years of scientific study, was first discovered in skin cancer research to help rebuild skin layers. Proven to strengthen skin’s ability to fight off multiple signs of aging, NIA-114, over time, energizes skin, accelerating cell turnover.

Each of StriVectin range of products combine NIA-114 with another scientifically selected potent ingredient to help target a specific concern.

Many Asian women suffer from dull-looking skin, dark spots, discolorations and uneven skin tone. They long for a translucent, more even-looking and luminous complexion. To meet the demand of these aging skin concerns, StriVectin developed the new WH Photo-White.
