Pussycat Dolls are doing Cat Eyes


I love this picture of Nicole. I was her make-up artist when she was with Eden’s Crush and she would always go with a smoky eye and lots of lashes. She is even more beautiful in person and I am so happy for her success. She has some set of vocals and I enjoyed every second of working with her.

I had sent her a Get in Line stencil kit when I first launched the line and she sent me the sweetest note thanking me for the eyeliner stencils and how much she loved them. She also uses the glosses and gel eyeliners which I would use on her whenever we worked together. Kookla is her favorite gloss.

She said she used the Cat eye stencil to do her eyes the night this picture was taken and they look great. Just recently I sent off some Get in Line kits and glosses to all of the Pussycat Dolls. I think Nicole was tired of sharing hers with all of the girls. I can’t blame her for that.

Big kiss Nicole.



Nubrow from Anastasia- Beverly Hills

This product is amazing. I have been using it for over a month and have already noticed a huge difference in my brows. They are much fuller looking and I don't have to fill in with eyebrow color anymore. I was a plucker back in the day and have been using Anastasia's Eye Brow stencils (not to be confused with Beth Bender Beauty's Get in Line eyeliner stencils) for years.

Her stencils are the best ones available because they are made from a soft PVC plastic that allows you to bend and fit the stencils over any brow shape. To see her complete line of products visit Sephora.com NuBrow retails for $35.00 and it is so worth the investment for anyone needing a little help in the eyebrow dept.

Nu Brow - Brow Enhancing Serum
What it is:
Nu Brow is a colorless and odo
rless gel, comprised of a unique blend of top proteins and vitamins designed to condition, repair, and restore the eyebrows.

What it is formulated to do:
Gone are the days of sparse, thin brows - say hello to fuller, thicker-looking brows with Nu Brow. The unique gel-based formula is designed to help restore thin, over-plucked, and undernourished eyebrows. The deep conditioning action works to help stimulate brow growth, leaving them looking bold and beautiful.

What else you need to know:
Unlike other eyebrow regrowth products on the market that claim to work in a few months, Nu Brow is clinically proven to stimulate the hair follicle in as quickly as 4-6 weeks! An easy-to-use applicator allows the non-greasy formula to glide on smooth without tugging or pulling and is gentle enough to be used every day. Nu Brow is not harmful to the eyes or the surrounding skin area, plus as an added bonus, it also slows down excess hair loss, which results in a healthier fuller-looking brow.

Sexy Smoky Eyes - Retro Style


I love the Smoky eyes on this model. It’s very Studio 54 and her make-up is beautiful. Of course the shot has been photo shopped to death but her eyes are just so sexy. Love how the eyeliner bleeds into the corner of her eyes and let’s not forget those lashes. Wanna know how to get these gorgeous eyes? We suggest using the Get in Line Eyeliner and Stencil kit. The kit has everything you need to create sultry smoky eyes in minutes.

The last time I saw lashes like that was on my four year old nephew. Just remember to blend, blend, blend in the crease of your eyes and use a lighter color in the corner like they have here and blend up into the center of eye. Highlight the brow bone with the same light shade or a shimmer. To get a perfect line underneath use the smoky eye stencil and place under your eye along your lash line. With your eye shadow brush sweep a bit of color along the stencil and remove. To soften go over with eye shadow brush.

Repeat on the other eye and do the same for your top eye liner. Add a little concealer, set with a powder and finish with lots of mascara.


Scarlett is crazy for Get in Line


Everyone knows how much I love Scarlett Johansson, and not just because she uses Beth Bender Beauty products. I have been a fan for years and think she is absolutely gorgeous and one of the best actresses of her generation. My boyfriend met her years ago when she had the lead in one of her first movies Manny and Lo. His wife at the time Lisa Krueger wrote and directed this wonderful little flick.

Anyway I was thrilled to find out a few years ago that the Get in Line stencils were one of her favs and could be found in her make-up bag. What made me even happier was to hear from a publicist back in New York that she ran into Scarlett in the ladies room at an event and found her doing a quick Cat eye with the stencils.

How cool is that. Look how sexy her eyes look in this shot. All this buzz about Get in Line. Finally the secret is out of the bag ladies.

Britney and Beth Bender Beauty

I just got off the phone with a friend of mine who works for OK Magazine. Most of us have been hearing nothing but more drama about Britney and Lindsay, two of Hollywood’s bad girls. I mentioned that she also stopped by the event I was doing on Tuesday in West Hollywood. Every time you put on the TV they are talking about the two of them.

Well my sources tell me that not only did Miss Britney walk off with nearly $21,000 in merchandise but she also walked off with a bunch of make-up that I had given to the Beauty Editor prior to the shoot including of course my Get in Line Stencil kit, loads of glosses, eye dust and four kits.

I know she is a fan of Beth Bender Beauty and Get in Line, We have personally dropped off product to her for award shows and shoots, but I guess on the day of the shoot she thought maybe these were all gifts for her including that darling Pucci scarf she is sporting on the cover of OK , a Zac Posen dress and the gorgeous shoes she had on her feet as she ran out the door.

Oh well just another day in the life of one of Hollywood’s most famous naughty girls.

Enjoy the lip glosses Britney!



Nani Velez Speaks Out About Get in Line

Check this out. Nani is a well known Make-up and Hair Stylist in LA. She is always working and here’s what she had to say about the Kit.

nani-pic-blog.jpg Here she is on a shoot for a clothing campaign with two of the models

Hey you guys, I just wanted to share with all of you how amazing this “Get in line stencil kit” is and how it has made my job easier, not to mention the frenzy it has caused on several sets that I’ve worked on with different celebrities and models.

If you haven’t yet heard about how incredibly useful this kit is, you’re now hearing it first off from a make up artist that has been in the business for over 15 years. I love it, I love it, I love it!!! I can’t express enough thanks to Beth and this fantastic tool that she has made available not only for professionals alike, but for consumers everywhere!!

I was first introduced to the “Get in Line Eyeliner Stencil System” in March of 2003, where we were working on a major fashion show for World Asia Television in Hawaii. It was then when I met Beth Bender for the first time and fell in love with her products! I have been using them ever since on different sets, and various locations as well as on all of my clients who have also become fans of Beth and can’t seem to live without their eyeliner stencils kits.

For anyone who has ever had difficulty lining their eyes or getting a smoky eye look or perfect cat eye, then this is the tool your make up bag needs. Even a seasoned make up artist like myself understands how useful this Eyeliner Stencil kit is and how it’s made such an impact in the world of beauty.

Thank you Betty for making my job easier!


How sweet is she? This girl rocks and is one fierce artist! You can find Nani at www.myspace.com/naniv706. email: nani_velez@yahoo.com. Check out her gorgeous work.

Gel Eyeliners For a Line That Stays Put

Nobody likes the humidity except maybe your skin and when it's giving your eyes the raccoon look and you haven't even started your day that is always a drag.

The good news is an eyeliner gel is the perfect product on days like this. It's water resistant and once it's on it doesn't budge. Use with a flat brush or a small tapered brush to achieve the perfect line.

Penelope Cruz uses them and look at her gorgeous eyes. They always look perfect. You can wear them alone or set with a powder for even longer lasting color. Since they have become so popular there are a lot of cosmetic companies that have a Gel Liner. The formula is the same in all, the price may vary depending on the brand.



Travel Set for Gals On The Go

July 26th, 2007 bethbenderbeauty


I have been getting a lot of emails from women asking if I have the stencils available by themselves. Like many of us although our bags seem to be getting bigger and bigger, there is still never enough room in them. The answer is yes and they can be purchased for $16.00 at bettesboutique.com or bethbenderbeauty.com. Same website, two ways to find us.

The complete Get in Line Stencil kit travels well too but it’s always nice to have an extra set of eyeliner stencils just in case.

Event At Modern Beauty Salon & Lilo and Britney

For anyone who attended the fabulous event last night at Modern Beauty Salon then you also had the pleasure of watching all of the paparazzi wait for hours hoping to catch a glimpse of Lindsay Lohan, or as we like to call her here in Hollywood, Lilo.

As it turns out her Lawyer's office is right next door to the salon. Needless to say they waited for nothing because according to my sources who know the real scoop Lilo was already on her way to the Betty Ford Clinic for another try at getting sober.

I was there doing demo's using the Get in Line eye stencil kit and introducing my new Hollywood Nude lip colors. Inspired by all of the naughty girls including Lilo. My friend and amazing artist Michael Talley was making all of the women even more beautiful doing demo's using Cover FX the line I wrote about a few weeks ago.

He had done my skin using their products prior to the event beginning and it looked fantastic hours later.

Anyway in between the demo's and celebrity mayhem who showed up but Britney Spears. Yes, Britney Spears and as predicted the paparazzi went nuts trying to get a picture of her. It was quite a scene on Sunset Blvd last night and I had a good laugh and kept on working.

Cat eyes and Smoky eyes all night long and everyone was happy.


Cat eye’s at Prada

July 25th, 2007 bethbenderbeauty Edit

This was a nice surprise. Check out the last item must have. Yep, this kit really does do a sexy sultry Cat eye. Had one on last night. Looked amazing.

Thank you Lesley!



The Top 10 Fashion Must-Have’s

for a Failsafe Fall Wardrobe.


POSTED: Tuesday, July 24, 2007

With such new silhouettes and colors dominating fall fashion, it might seem like an entire wardrobe overhaul is necessary. Although tempting, unless you’re booked as a makeover subject on What Not to Wear, tossing everything out & shopping from scratch isn’t happening.

To stretch even the most meagre fashion budget to its maximum, invest in key accessories, some wide-legged trousers, and a white blouse. And don’t forget hair and makeup: the season’s Prada cateye, opaque wine-colored lipstick, and Gatsby’esque bob are vital for looking like a million without spending it.

The Top 10 wardrobe, accessory and beauty must-haves for fall:

Hollywood Nudes- Lip Color That Sizzles

July 20th, 2007 bethbenderbeauty


Yesterday I wrote about Paris Hilton wearing one of my new lip colors “Paris is burning”. A friend of mine had given it to her at an event and she loved it. Today when I got to my studio I had over two hundred emails asking where they could pick up this color.

Well ladies, the only place at the moment to purchase “Paris is Burning” or any of the other Hollywood Nudes is bethbenderbeauty.com. We are in the process of opening accounts in the Los Angeles area. Puff Beauty in South Pasadena should have the line sometime in August. They are the cutest beauty bar evah!

In the meantime you can check out all of the other colors at bethbenderbeauty.com

Hollywood Nudes as seen on Paris


A friend of mine just recently gave one of my new glosses from the Hollywood Nude collection to Paris Hilton. She uses the eyeliner stencil kit and has purchased a few other things from the line. I was a little embarrassed that she might be offended by the name “Paris is Burning” but she thought it was hysterical. She loved the color and looooved the taste. He said the color looked perfect on her. So glad.


Paris is Burning

I wish he had an extra one for Nicole but I am sure when he sees her the next time he will have plenty. She is so cute that one. Hollywood Nudes who would have thought?



A Great Little Boutique

If you are ever in the Oregon area, Baker City to be exact please make sure and stop by Sane Jane’s. This is a darling boutique and it is run by sisters who are sooooo sweet. Ann is one of the sister’s who I usually speak to. They sell beauty products, candles, clothing, accessories and much more.

The best part of this shopping experience aside from all of the fabulous things they carry including beth bender beauty is their amazing customer service. They love what they do and it shows. We get a lot of inquiries from customers in Oregon interested in buying our products and this is the place that we always send them to if they live near by.

Look who loves beth bender beauty

I got a message from a good friend last night who is a make-up artist here in Los Angeles. She does a lot of film and TV work and couldn’t wait to call and tell me how much Natalie Portman loves my products, especially the Get in line eyeliner kit.

She actually showed one of the other actresses on set how to do a smoky eye with the eye liner kit and did it perfectly. The other gal practically ripped it out of her hands. I was so happy to hear that news because we all know how much I love smoky eyes.

Anyway I am a huge fan of Natalie’s work and think she is absolutely gorgeous!

Rock on Miss Portman and thank you for loving beth bender beauty products.


Christina @ Ebeautydaily does a fierce cat eye

Christina you rock!!! Thank you so much for your great demo.


The Amy WineHouse Cat Eye


Only rarely do you see someone that is truly so pretty work so hard to be unpretty, but Amy Winehouse sure does it. But man can she sing - so who cares what she looks like? It’s all about jumping out of the sea of performers however you can anyway. But like it or not, she is definitely a style maven who really has charmed me to death.

Regardless of what you think about her look, she is working a cat eye like nobody’s business all over the world. Want one? I have the easiest way ever. For a mere $36, pick up Beth Bender Beauty’s Get In Line eye kit. Now, I love an eye kit. I adore the one that DuWop makes - but in its simplicity, this one is better, and it comes with all of the tools you need to make it work. Really make it work. So, on that note, I present to you my first video on the Cat Eye. Don’t laugh too hard. But definitely don’t be drinking anything while you watch. D

Get in Line review from Beaut.ie

Also from Beaut.ie the best beauty blog in Ireland. Two sisters Kristie & Aphrodite who know how to do beauty.

Creating smoky eyes in two easy steps: Get In Line for Beth Bender Beauty

get in line.jpgAt the weekend I tried out the Beth Bender makeup range. Now I have to admit normally I’m a bit crap at trying out new looks. I kind of know what suits me and stay with that.

So when some Beth Bender slap came my way I was delighted to use it. Why? Well first off - it’s just SO pretty! The bronzer, the lipgloss and the glam gloss are all packaged in the most adorable tubs with pretty flowers and sequins. But the star of the range is definitely the Get in Line kit.

Developed for idiots like me, this is a simple pallette with three key eyeshadow colours: charcoal, chocolate and cream. And two templates. Aha! Here comes the good bit.

Template one: simple smoky eyes. Put the plastic template over your eye area, fill in the gap with colour and blend with the cream shadow. Build up the darker shadow if you want to achieve a more dramatic look. Bingo! A totally matte smoky eye.

Tempate two gives you a simple way to achieve oh so sexy cat eyes.

Perfect for a no messin’ about, glam night time look!

Get one of these for yourself for $36 from www.bethbenderbeauty.com

Get in Line for Get in Line

The sisters at Beaut.ie each wrote their own review of the Get in Line beauty stencil system. This is what Kristie had to say. These girls rock!!

get in lineSmokey eyes. Mmm. Gorgeous, aren’t they? But a bloody nightmare to get right! Likewise, sharp lookin’ liner application - it’s a minefield! We’re always getting asked how you do it properly, is there by chance a trick? If only! It’s down to practice, tenacity, good brushes & products and the vagaries of the moon cycle, if you ask me.In other words - not an easy one to master. So you might be interested in this little beauty I found whilst trawling t’internet for new and exciting products to show you lovely people. It’s called Get In Line, and it’s the ultimate cheating tool for gals who want to easily achieve liner and smokey eyes. It basically consists of shadows and 2 stencils which you use to create your looks with. Clever, eh? It costs $36 from bettesboutique.com.

Charmed by Beth Bender Beauty

How sweet is Christina from ebeautydaily.com. I love her!!

by Christina Jones on June 21st, 2007While I was on my trip I came home to a goodie bag from boutique brand, Beth Bender Beauty. I had heard of this brand, but really didn’t know much about it - but I am totally charmed now. Just one look at the way they were packed with love (colored tissue paper and ribbons) will do it, but as I unwrapped the items, I really just fell in love. The mineral makeup, lipgloss, blush and sparkle powder are in screw top pots with handpainted flowers and a little rhinestone on top. I know this has absolutely nothing to do with the product inside, but looking at them here sitting on my desk makes me smile - they are really pretty - what an impressive gift they would make for someone special!

If I could find my camera (*&^%*), I would take a picture, of these beautiful pots, but since that doesn’t seem to be happening now (grr), I will give you a pic from Beth Bender Beauty. You can’t imagine how cute several of these are sitting here - absolutely charming:


I haven’t had a chance to play around with the other items yet, but this lipgloss is great ($16)- it smells and tastes great - but not “too” great - just enough. And the shine and sparkle are sooooo pretty. My real love from this goodie bag is the Get In Line eye kit - but I will save that for a later review, and hopefully a demo video. This is maybe the coolest. eye. kit. evah. )

A Pretty Cat eye on a Pretty Girl

This is one of my favorite shots using the Get in Line Stencil kit to do a Cat eye. I was going thru some of my earlier press and pulled this one out to use for an upcoming event.

I love it because the make-up is so fresh and her skin looks beautiful. This was one of the first times that a magazine actually showed a model wearing a cat eye that was done with the stencils.

I love that the make-up artist made the Cat eye a little on the thicker side which adds some extra glam to her eyes. Check out the cheeks. Must have used a touch of High Beam for that gorgeous glow.



A Great Little Highlighter

I’ve tried a lot of highlighters to highlight the cheek bones, brow bones and to make the eyes pop and most don’t live up to what they say. High Beam from Benefit is a different story. This is a great little product and one that I would recommend to anyone looking for that beautiful sheen that so many celebs have on the red carpet.

It has a brush tip applicator that makes it easy to use with no mess and blends into the skin beautifully leaving your face glowing. I love to highlight my brow bone with this and put lots of mascara on my eyes. If you’re going out for the evening set it with a little All over Shimmer. I use Pretty from my line. It gives you the right amount of shimmer and stays on all night. Finish with a cat eye and you’ve got yourself a little Breakfast At Tiffany’s.

You can find this little gem at any Sephora or Sephora.com. It retails for $22 and should last you at least nine months depending on how often you use. Pretty can be found at bethbenderbeauty.com and retails for $18. I have both in my kit, at my studio and at home. Perfect for house calls and last minute beauty drop ins.


Beauty & Skin Care event in July

Calling all Beauty Junkies:

Michael Talley, Regional Director and Super Star Artist for Cover Fx, the most unbelievable cover up for your skin. Covers anything and looks so natural! Nia 24, Allergan, the distributors for Juvederm and Botox and of course Carmen the owner and amazing hair stylist known for her perfect hair extensions. So natural no one will ever know it’s not your hair.

Cocktails and appetizers will be served during the event and lots of great information on the latest in beauty & skin care from the experts.

To R.S.V.P. please call toll free 877-4dr-face or 310-858-1787
This is one party you will not want to miss!

See you there.



Cover FX- The Best Cover Up Ever

Recently I had the pleasure of meeting Michael Talley Super star make-up artist and Regional for Cover FX, a Cosmeceuticals company. Unlike other companies that promise to cover up Rosacea, Acne blemishing and scarring,bruises, and post surgical procedures, these products actually do. Products like their Cover FX Total Coverage Foundation with an SPF of 30 and my fav, Skin Prep FX are fantastic! Their tinted moisturizers are also a fav of mine. The coverage is great and the colors match any skin tone. My sister bought it and loves it!

Lee Graff, Co-founder and President of Cover FX has been a camouflage specialist for over 20 years. All of the products they carry are recommended by leading dermatologists for promoting healthy skin. They have quite a nice list of celebs that use the product too. Like Madonna for instance who just recently bought the entire line.

I spent quite a bit of time with Michael checking out all of the products and watching him do a demo on my sister. He was amazing and explained each product that he used and did it in steps so we could see the difference. Her skin looked beautiful and looked as if she was wearing nothing.

The products are also used in film and TV because so many things are shot in High Definition and every little flaw can be seen. With these products you can’t see anything. Director’s love these little goodies.

If you are interested in checking out the line of products you can visit their website at: WWW.COVERFX.COM or if you are near a Nordstroms, they also carry it. If you are lucky enough to live in the Los Angeles area you can make an appointment to see Michael in the flesh at Naimes in Studio City. I promise you will not be disappointed.



Eyes first- foundation last

Want to save time putting your face on in the morning? Try doing your eyes first and saving skin care & foundation for last. It saves times and prevents extra clean up from shadows and eyeliner that may bleed beyond the eye area.

If you do get a little bleeding take a Q-tip and dip into a tiny bit of eye or face cream . Gently apply to the eye area and wipe away and unwanted color.

A great tip I learned during all those shows backstage.

Alluring Eyes

Sexy smoky eyes. Will they ever go away? No and I can’t blame them. Look how beautiful each one of these women looks. What’s not to love about a smoky eye? Any shape, color or look is so beautiful. A soft brow or a strong brow. Whatever your mood.

These looks have got my vote. Smoky eyes are my fav as most of you already know. I get tons of requests for them whenever I work so I am always prepared and ready to go.

Every time I pull out my Eyeliner stencil kit all the girls gather round to check it out. And always they are amazed at how easy and quick it is to create these looks. Even the most seasoned artists have the kit and use it especially when they are under the gun and every minute counts. Many of them have eyebrow stencils too. There is nothing lazy about using a great tool to make it a little easier and get the job done.

I once spent three hours watching a well known make-up artist attempt to do a smoky eye on a gal for the Grammy’s. It was painful to watch her struggle and finally she left the suite and had someone finish the job. Not a very good day for her. The stencils both for eyeliner and eyebrow would have helped her with placement and given her the confidence to “get the job done”.

Magazines like Allure, Marie Claire, Teen Vogue and In Style are always a great way to get the latest beauty trends and “How to’s” for creating these looks above or any others.



Sunless Tanners I love

Want the look of a tan without baking in the sun? Then check out these great products the next time you visit your nearest shopping mall or drugstore. Neutrogena’s Instant Bronze is great for girls on the go. It’s oil free and dries in less than five minutes. Looks great and gives your skin a natural glow. It retails for $10 and can be found at any Target, CVS or Rite Aid.

My next fav is Prescriptives Sunsheen. The color is a subtle golden color which looks great on most skin tones and even better it has an SPF of 15. Yeah!!! $27 and you can find it at most Prescriptive counters or online at prescriptives.com.

Another fav of mine is A Tan for All Seasons from Bliss. I just used this on a shoot last week and this totally rocks!!! It gives you splotch free coverage and offers a super fine mist and a 360-degree nozzle. It has a peachy undertone that makes it perfect for pale skin. I used it on two different girls and a guy. It went on without any streaks and stayed on. It is a little on the pricey side but worth the investment. $36 and available at blissworld.com

Silver eyeliner to wake up those eyes

Want to give your eyes a little pick me up? Try lining them with a silver liner. It looks great and brightens up the entire face. Try a pale platinum and line the eyes as close to the lid as possible. A nice sharp line will give your eyes extra intensity. For a longer lasting liner try one of Make-up Forever liquid liners.

A lovely blog from Teen Vogue

Jane Shin Park the Associate Beauty & Health Editor from Teen Vogue is an absolute doll. I wanted to share with everyone the most beautiful blog written about our glam glosses.

Jane's In Bloom!

Glam_gloss_web_2 Being a beauty editor, I have the envy-inspiring fortune of checking out the latest lipgloss launches from the biggest cosmetics companies out there. But it was a super cute, petal-pot from an under-the-radar brand that recently caught my attention.

Created by Los Angeles-based makeup artist Beth Bender, who worked with makeup legend Bobbi Brown for six years, Glam Gloss perfectly evokes the carefree spirit of summer. And it's not just the packaging, which features a sunny flower hand-painted by Beth’s mother and sister. In this case, it's truly what's inside that counts. With a wide selection of juicy, high-shine shades to choose from, it's no wonder that Hollywood starlets like Kate Bosworth, Scarlett Johansson, and Mischa Barton are fans of the line. $16; bethbender.com.—JANE SHIN PARK, ASSOCIATE BEAUTY AND HEALTH EDITOR

Keeping your eyeliner on your eyes

Hi Ladies:

I am back from New York City and right back into my crazy life. I ended up working but it was so much fun it didn’t feel like work at all. It was very humid the day we were shooting and I had to make sure that the eyeliner stayed put. Nothing worse than having to keep cleaning up and powdering under the eye.

Thank God I had my eyeliner sealant with me. It worked like a dream and the eyes looked great. A good little product to have in your make-up bag just in case. You can find this at most beauty supply stores or online at Alcone.com.

The weather here in LA has been soooo hot that I have been loading on the sunscreen. My new fav is from Rilistil. It comes in 40 and 50 SPF. I wear the 40, it is kind of thick but it really keeps the sun off of your face. And it smells so good, like vanilla.

It is good to be back in Hollywood baby!



Soliv Skin Care Still Rules

As you all know I have been using this amazing skin care line called Soliv for the past six weeks and have been giving you updates on the changes in my skin. At the suggestion of my very good friend and VP of Sales for Beth Bender beauty, Lisa Marandas I have started using the mask everyday and boy have I seen a huge difference in my skin.

First of all whatever fine lines I had are pretty much gone and my skin looks firm & flawless. I am going to be 46 years old next month and I still get asked to show my ID. I think this is probably the most amazing skin care line to hit the world of beauty and I would urge anyone who wants to turn back time to give this a try.

Lisa has been using the products a little longer than myself and is constantly asked what she is using on her skin. As I mentioned before the product is just now being placed in spas and salons across the US. You can visit their website at


Just to give you an idea of how great this product is:

  • Improved skin texture, color and integrity of the skin

  • High firming properties that address slackening skin

  • Boost of hydration

  • Pore tightening

  • Effective on skin barrier for more youthful looking skin

  • Effective on scar reduction and burns

  • Line reduction

  • Suitable for highly sensitive skin types

  • Reduction in redness and calming associated with rosacea

  • Versatile – suitable for all skin types

  • Returns the skin to a younger looking state in one day

Oh and did I mention, It won’t break your bank account either. How great is that!
