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.

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.

The Skinny On Firmness

Back from a break on Phillip Island by the freezing cold sea with my family and my knittaz. No whales were spotted but good times had by all. Many carbs and coffees were consumed. Lots of knitting was done. I have carb regrets *pats belly*

As they say, find your tribe and love them hard!

I was asked by one of my lovely customers recently about which products are best for firming up the skin, thus inspiring me to write this post listing my top 3 firming products in the SeneGence range.

Evening Moisturizer: Because the evening moisturizers contain a higher concentration of the SenePlex Complex, this will help speed up the firmness and plumpness of your skin cells even faster. This also seals in the following treatments when you apply them to your face.

SeneSerum C: The C-Beads present a smoothing and anti-wrinkle effect to skin that consist of a more advanced and effective form of stabilized Vitamin C and made of elements which help to repair previous damage of cells. Therefore, the active vitamin C in the serum helps to stimulate collagen production and improve the skins firmness and elasticity.

seneserum c

Anti-Wrinkle Treatment: It contains ingredients that work to reduce light to medium wrinkle depth by an average of 34% to 63%. Wowsers! The Anti-Wrinkle Treatment is formulated with ingredients that reduce the intensity of wrinkle lines (and therefore the depth) while at the same time stimulate cell production and restore proper moisture content of cells to produce fuller, more plump cells in areas that are recessed. I really ought to get on to this because I needs it!

Bonus: Anything with the SenePlex Complex as it increases firmness and elasticity, an average of 51.9%. The more you layer the more you get the actives to work.

Therefore, more moisture means more firmness and plumper skin cells and more radiant skin and who doesn’t want that?!

Shea Butter Body Cream

I would complain about my day but I’ve managed and I had help to get things done. So instead, I am grateful.

My eldest kiddo has been sick all week and the doctor thinks it might be the flu now, on our second visit. Oh, joy. But we keep on going and do what needs to get done. And keep gulping all the coffee.

While I’ve had a moment to myself, I’ve been researching the Shea Butter Body Cream. And oh my god, I’m adding it to my next order!

You can use it from head to toe.

Shea Butter Body Cream

As a hair treatment – leave it in your hair and treat your scalp for 20 minutes before washing out.

Your best mani/pedi ever – soften and treat cuticles and nails, your hands and feet for the softest skin ever. For dry cracked heels (hello!), slather it on before bed and slip on your socks to protect your feet.

For the fellas – use for dry, rough elbows and knees and feet and anywhere else.

And the absolute favourite of our founder, Joni, is using it to remove make up at the end of the day. Yes! It sounds old school like a cold cream from back in the day. You massage a generous amount on to your face and eyes. It’ll even remove our waterproof LashSense! Then grab a warm washcloth and gently place it on your face for a moment and wipe off. Rinse and repeat until all colour has washed off the cloth and your face, of course.

And of course, all over your body!

SCIENCE! Some key ingredients that are in this Shea Butter you will not find anywhere else are:

  • SenePlex Complex: Kinetic Enzyme that Increases cellular renewal.
  • Shea Butter: to prevent moisture evaporation from the skin and provide lubrication to the skin’s surface.
  • Olive Fruit Oil: has a superior moisturizing effect on the upper layer of the skin and can aid in reducing scars.
  • Vitamin A: known for its cellular renewal properties that speed up exfoliation to reveal younger, plumper skin cells which produces new and healthy cells in the skin and the body.
  • Vitamin E: an essential antioxidant and neutralizer of free radicals.
  • Glucosamine HCL: enhances the body’s ability to manufacture collagen.
  • Panthenol: Vitamin B complex is essential for formation of new healthy tissues.
  • Sodium Hyaluronate: a ubiquitous carbohydrate polymer that is part of the extracellular matrix. It is a humectant about 100 times more effective as a humectant than Glycerin.

So, if you’re thinking of getting the Shea Butter Body Cream for whatever use you need it, you will not be sorry. I’m looking forward to trying it on my feet to be sandal ready for spring! And in my thick, crazy frizzy hair! And to remove my makeup! And all over!! Eeeeeeeee!!!

First Impressions

Today my Brightening Multi-Vitamin Treatment arrived and I went live on my Facebook group, https://www.facebook.com/groups/1920530031298362/ to give my first impressions of it.

brightening treatemtn vit c

I applied one pump of the treatment on to my clean, dry skin all over my face. You can use this as a spot treatment and use a tiny amount on each spot. As I have pigmentation, sun spots and acne scarring, I’m using it all over my face.

The Brightening Multi-Vitamin Treatment is absolutely delightful. It has a fresh, citrus scent and it feels positively silky on your skin. It’s silky and creamy in texture.

SCIENCE! You apply the treatment first before anything else as the molecules are tiny and need to penetrate your skin, deep into the layers. The molecules in our moisturizers are larger and seal in the treatments in your skin.

I took my before photo (more like mug shot) this morning after I washed my face. It’ll be interesting to see how my skin improves week to week. I’ll post an updated pic when I hit the 30 day mark, unless there’s some drastic change I have to share with y’all before then.
