Merry Christmas Everyone! I can’t believe it’s already December. It’s been over a month since my last entry and to be honest it’s been really hectic that finding time to blog has proven to be difficult after getting back from my trip to Korea and to getting back to work and all.
Anyways, I thought I’d share with you something that I’ve been using for almost a month now and I’ve gotten quite a few compliments that I look young and radiant and I think it has something to do with the new skincare I’ve been using. I’m really liking the ASTALIFT Basic Anti Aging Skincare from FUJIFILM. Yes FUJIFILM, the film company and they launched a skincare brand back in 2007 known as ASTALIFT. With the company’s expertise in image analyzing and color developing in film they’ve now entered the cosmetic industry.
“Not many know that oxidation – the leading cause of freckles and skin ageing – is responsible for colour fading in photographs. FUJIFILM has applied its advanced understanding of the process of anti-oxidation technology to create ASTALIFT’s award-winning anti-ageing products.”-www.astalift.com
My Japanese friend Kiyoko gave me a travel set of the ASTALIFT Basic Anti Aging Skincare as a present when I last visited Japan in May. I didn’t get to try it until my trip to Korea last month. I didn’t have the time and patience to decant my current skincare to bring with me so I just grabbed the ASTALIFT Basic Anti Aging Skincare travel set instead.
It was the last week of Autumn in Korea so the 9 degree weather was too cold for my skin coming from the 33 degree weather in the Philippines not to mention sitting through very dry air on a 4 hour flight. Extreme weather changes can be quite punishing on the skin. I was scared that using a new skincare would cause a breakout but there was none of that and ASTALIFT was a skin savior.
ASTALIFT Moisture Foam-This was first thing I tried from the set and I have nothing but love for this foaming cleanser. It comes out a peachy color and pearly looking paste and you only need very little amount to create a foam and it deep cleanses your skin leaves it soft and well moisturized. Even though it has a rosy scent, it didn’t irritate my skin.
ASTALIFT Cleansing Gel- I used this as a morning cleanser in Korea because the cold just sucks out all the moisture off your skin. It’s an orange-y clear gel which works into a white milky emulsion when it comes into contact with your wet face much like the Matsuyama M Mark cleansing gel. It’s very gentle but it’s said to be strong enough to cut through facial grease, dirt and makeup residue.
ASTALIFT Jelly Aquarysta-It has the same color as the cleansing gel and the texture is similar to a soft firm Jel-O. It’s a pre-lotion serum so this is the first product you should apply after cleansing. This really feels nice and I only use at night because I’m trying to save as much as I can. It targets dark spots, fine lines, dull and rough skin–pretty much all signs of skin aging.
ASTALIFT Lotion-In the morning, I use the lotion to prep and tone my skin. This helps retain skin moisture and sets the stage for the essence and moisturizer so your skin can fully absorb all the good stuff.
ASTALIFT Essence Destiny-This has got to be my favorite ASTALIFT product. With the same color as the Jelly Aquarysta, it’s very light on the skin but it contains high concentrates of anti-aging elements: nano-Astaxanthin, nano-Lycopene, highly-permeable Resveratrol, and Royal Jelly that leaves your skin revitalized, plump and luminous. Well you see all of it the next day after waking up.
ASTALIFT Cream- A moisturizing cream that’s quite rich and heavy which is perfect for cold weather. It provides your skin that extra moisture and helps make your skin resilient.
In conclusion, I love the ASTALIFT Anti Aging Skincare range. You don’t need to wait for 3 months to see visible results. One thing I observed though is one has to use the entire system otherwise you won’t see much of the positive results it promises. Lastly, this brand is on the high end side so it requires some saving up. A lot of saving up. At least for me. :)
