Decorte AQ Serum Absolute is the newest launch from Decorte Cosmetics and is a high-performance serum that offers support to skin that sags with age, revealing a toned, tightened and more lifted appearance. The silky formula instantly melts into skin, delivering youthful density for a redefined, sculpted contour with new-found firmness and elasticity.

Decorte AQ Serum Absolute review

All the products I have used from Decorte, they always set a level for the next one that I try. So I obviously had high hopes from this serum. And luckily my mother was visiting us when I started using this serum – so I thought why not request her to try it with me. She agreed to it. I was so excited to see the real effects and differences it makes on my mom’s 58+ years old skin.

Decorte AQ Serum Absolute review

The serum has some innovative as well as some traditional ingredients that not only help achieve instant but also long-term results including: Targets ageing “fat cells”, stopping the negative spiral and adverse effects of these cells so that skin retains its lift and tone, create more supple, even skin, enhances skin barrier functions with antioxidant protection, helps promote epidermal strength and density for a more lifted and toned skin.

We have been using 2-3 pumps of this serum after Emulsion and Lotion each morning and evening – make sure to spread in lifting motions across the face, neck and décolletage. The results have been very positive, and more visible on my mom’s skin. Her skin looks toned, supple, and radiant – I can see the difference in how youthful it looks and she feels it too. For me, I feel the skin is toned and radiant in general – looks healthy and supple.

Decorte AQ Serum Absolute review

Overall, an amazing new launch from Decorte, not just to help the ageing skin but also to maintain the youthfulness. I know what I am going to gift my mom this Mother’s Day. Decorte skincare and makeup products are available at Saks Fifth Avenue.

New Nest New York Mediterranean Fig Home Fragrance Collection for spring 2020 review of the candle and the reed diffuser

The candle is made with a premium, soft, highly refined, cosmetic-grade wax that was developed over many years to optimize burn and fragrance diffusion. The ingredients used are the highest grade of wax materials and the finest fragrance oils available. I have been burning Nest Candles for a few years now and they are amazing – not overly intense but just the right aroma and vibe in the room.

This is a really nice addition to my home decor as well as the home scents for spring. Nest New York is available at Sephora Canada, Sephora.ca, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Nordstrom.

The limited-edition Detox Kit includes below products:

Grown Alchemist Deep Cleansing Facial Masque (75mL full-size) – It is a deep cleansing clay masque formulated to detoxify the skin’s appearance while noticeably improving skin firmness. It is suitable for all skin types. I apply a generous amount to clean skin and then allow it to dry for 10-15 minutes.  The result is skin looks visibly revitalized, decongested and feeling smooth, toned and prepared for moisturizing. I am reaching out for this mask a lot lately, like a weekly treatment.

Grown Alchemist Detox Toner (100mL full-size) – It is a non–irritating and detoxifying facial toner that removes impurities while helping the repair of damaged skin cells; reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. After cleansing the face, spritz the fine mist onto facial skin, neck and décolletage until the skin is lightly damp then press onto skin and allow to dry. I follow with my serum or moisturizer after the mist is sunk into the skin.

Grown Alchemist Detox Serum (30mL full-size) – It is a lightweight, oil-free serum that absorbs quickly into the skin. It can be used daily both morning and evening after cleansing and before moisturizing. Apart from the facial skin, it can be applied over the orbital bone and around the eye contour area. The skin is deeply detoxified and better positioned to absorb and utilize active ingredients from serums, oils and moisturizers. I am really enjoying this for my combination skin but is gentle enough for all skin types. There is no breakout or irritation on my skin, skin looks clean and pure.
