Moisture On High

You know that feeling when you drive half an hour to a retailer, only to find out that the sale item you wanted was sold just minutes before you got there? Yeah, that. For a makeup brush cleanser I really wanted because of the sale #firstworldmakeupproblems Oh, well. I placed an order online for it and still get the discount, so all is not lost. Now, I just have to wait for it.

But I digress.

Continuing skincare appreciation month, I want to share with you all the ultimate in hydration; Climate Control. There’s a lot of science at work here and for good reason too. Suited to all skin types, especially very dry and sensitive skin, it will take you to new heights of moisture. Is that even a thing? Well, it is now!

This anti-ageing moisturizer, not only contains the amazing SenePlex Complex, but also SelPlex. It contains the very best of ingredients to make your skin moister (what a word, moister), with a blend of herbal oils and vitamins to soothe the skin and also increase moisture. It also contains Sodium Hyaluronate to protect against moisture loss.

This makes it the perfect treatment for people experiencing a heating sensation in their skin from dryness or sensitivities such as rosacea, eczema, or dermatitis, it even alleviates sunburn symptoms.

Apply it anywhere on your face and body that needs an extra boost of moisture. As moisture spreads, so too, does the SenePlex Complex. The herbal oil extracts soothe irritations of the skin as the moisturizer relieves the dryness.

Use twice daily, followed by your DayTime moisturizer in the morning and Evening moisturizer at night in order to seal in the hydrating goodness. Simply shake vigorously to activate the ingredients (you only need to do this once), and spray into your hand a few times, then massage all over your face, eyes, and throat.

Beautiful skin is a reality, and I cannot recommend Climate Control enough to people! Add it to you daily SeneGence regimen and invest in your skin.

Welcome to the Smoke Show

I have always been intimidated by eyeshadow. I don’t know why, but I could never get it to look right or straight up gave up on trying.

Enter ShadowSense. It’s opened a whole new world for me. And I have the confidence to get creative with these highly pigmented colours. The quality of the product, how blendable the cream to powder is. Aaaaah I just love ShadowSense!

Now, I’ll admit it, I had fun making this video. I’m beginning to enjoy the editing process in iMovie. Thinking of switching up cameras though for my next video to my dSLR instead of my iPhone, which will be a wing liner tutorial as requested by my customer base.

Sit back, and enjoy the Smoke Show.

The ShadowSense colours I used:
  • Candlelight
  • Moca Java
  • Garnet mixed with Onyx
  • Silver Shimmer
 
If I can do it, you can too 😊

I don’t like to name favourites, but…

It’s been a busy weekend so far, as I attended a SeneBlends training session and did a makeover for a fellow SeneSister and she was very happy with the result! So was I! I colour matched her foundation to the right shade.

I’ve got another makeover/pamper session lined up this week for a momma who needs a break. I love can I can offer these to my friends and their friends and family and so on. It’s such great practice for me.

I’m feeling inspired to share with you one of my favourite skin care products, just don’t tell the other products; they get jealous easily.

I have talked about it before but I love love love the Facial Resurfacer.

It gives me the feeling of new skin every time I use it, as it sloughs away the dead skin sitting on my skin.

The SenePlex Complex in this product helps bring new plump skin cells to the surface 23% faster than going it alone. As you layer the SenePlex Complex, the better your skin will become; more plump, smoother and more luminous.

I use the resurfacer twice a week and no more than that as you don’t want to damage or thin out your skin.

The benefits of removing the dead skin cells, allows treatments and moisturizers penetrate your skin a lot faster and deeper, and get to work faster without all that crustiness in the way.

I highly recommend this for oily or acne prone skin (like mine), but all skin types can use this.

On a damp clean face, apply a pinky nail sized amount (smaller than a pea) to your face and in gentle, small, circular motions massage around your face, neck, and décolletage. I do this for about a minute or 2, then rinse off. Follow with your treatments and moisturizer.

This is going to give you a smooth base for your Colour Correcting Tinted Moisturizer and for your Foundation.

So go forth and get exfoliating! I’m going to clean the oven now. Oh! What a glamorous life I lead!

Gimme Some Skin

Hello, lovelies! I’ve been busy bee filming and editing videos on makeup looks, like a No Makeup Makeup look, which ties in nicely with the theme for the month.

August is skincare appreciation month here at Lip Mania with Christina.

I’ve touched on a few products before like the Evening Moisturizer, Brightening Multi-Vitamin Treatment and more.

Why the focus? Because we only have one skin and we need to look after it. Be it our face or our body, we need to love on it daily. And it’s the foundation for a flawless base for your makeup.

For me, personally, my skin has been transformed since using SeneGence.

You can see such a difference in the texture, tone, and luminosity.

It’s boosted my confidence, putting my best face forward. And I owe it all to the skincare and SenePlex Complex.

Yes, I still get the occasional breakout but it heals so much faster and without scarring.

I will come to you throughout the month highlighting my favourite products, my routine, testimonials and maybe even some videos.

I love the skin I’m in and I hope that you love yours too.
