The Black Rose Eye Contour Fluid has a unique delivery system using a ceramic applicator tip which feels very cool and soothing while applying the rosy emulsion that has a creamy texture and transforms into a fresh gel on the surface of the skin upon application.

The Black Rose Eye Contour Fluid has a very subtle and delicate scent which is naturally fragranced with May Rosewater. It can be used day and night. It does not feel heavy around the eye area – it is nourishing and sinks into the skin nicely, making the eye contour area smooth and plump. Eyes are look and feel illuminated, hydrated and smoothed while helps with dark areas and puffiness. I am loving how it makes my eye area look and feel – it has been few weeks now since I started using it every single day and night, definitely an amazing addition to Sisley’s Black Rose Skincare Collection.

I also want to share with you the Black Rose Cream Mask which I have been using once a week, especially on Monday morning or even the second time in a week when there is an important event. It just makes so much difference in how my skin looks. No doubt why it is best selling and has won so many beauty awards. Black Rose Cream Mask is a face mask that has been specifically formulated to instantly help the complexion appear more youthful and energized look. It is rich in anti-ageing ingredients that immediately works on diminishing signs of fatigue and leaves the skin looking more youthful and energized. All it takes is 10 to 15 minutes to see the results – and I know now why celebrities use this mask before big events. It is deliciously scented with rose and creates a moment of relaxation and pleasure.

The Black Rose Skincare Collection including the new Black Rose Eye Contour Fluid is available at luxury retailers including Holt Renfrew, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Nordstrom. It is also be available at Sisley- Paris.ca.

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.

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.

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.

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.
