If you’re looking for skincare brands that give you botox-inspired results the natural way then look no further.
Let’s start with Gaylia Kristensen, an Australian brand that has recently been awarded The Beauty Bible Award for its The EYE LÌFT Intensive Eye Serum – and it was also a finalist in the Best Eye Serum category for The Beauty Shortlist Awards. Also at The Beauty Shortlist Awards, the Gaylia Kristensen SÌLK Luxury Hand Treatment won the award for Best Luxury Hand Cream at the Beauty Shortlist Awards.
What makes Gaylia Kristensen products so unique? The science bit is this… it combines the state of the art, molecular polypeptide and protein technologies with natural Australian botanicals….to create the most advanced anti-ageing solutions.
Secondly, what I like about this range is that there’s only 10 products in the range so you’re not trawling through loads of different products wandering which ones to buy.
Thirdly, you can find the perfect products to suit your age group from 20-30, 30-40, 40-50 and over 50s. Gaylia has literally taken the hard work out of choosing the right products for your beauty routine.
Three of my faves from the collections are:
The Deluxe Cream – perfect for over 40’s skin especially if you need to lift and firm It has 7 incredibly powerful peptide and protein technologies that will dramatically lift, tighten and firm the skin, helping to reverse your most common skincare concerns. The texture is super lightweight – considering it’s full of all these highly effective ingredients that literally glides on effortlessly and feels like cashmere on the skin – it’s super absorbent too. Plus, you only need this one cream for day and night!
Next favourite is the award-winning EYE LÌFT Intensive Eye – the area around your eyes is a lot more delicate than other parts of your face and because of that, it is one of the areas that ages quicker. So, a powerful eye serum is a must-do. And I love this one, again super lightweight and fast-absorbent. So if you use this for 30 days, the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles can be reduced by up to a whopping 63%.
And finally, the Passion Oil – I know an oil might not be for everyone but I love it for getting a radiant and glowing complexion. So at night, your skin renews itself so it’s important to keep your skin highly hydrated – so I mix a couple of pumps of this oil and mix it with the DELUXE Cream for a super-rich and super-powerful formula that helps you to get your youthful glow back.
Now, you might think this an expensive range but believe me it’s an investment worth making – the results are incredible.
The next brand I’d like to introduce is Liquilift – now this is created by the very clever Tammy Hollis who is a product developer and again like Gaylia wanted to create products that deliver the same results as Botox the natural way. The Liquilift BioActive has actually been dubbed by Beauty Editors as a Facelift in a jar.
I caught up with Peter Sherlock, a presenter on shopping TV channels and we discussed all things Gaylia Kristensen.
So what is it? Well, just to be clear it’s not moisturiser or a mask – it’s an intensive skincare treatment that contains Liftonin, a powerful active that gives the product its effectiveness, it contains tannins extracted from Oak trees, which have a tautening effect while helping to strengthen your skin’s cell structure. Liquilift is also powered by botanical silicone extracted from Millet – which accelerates new production collagen and proteins to improve the skin’s overall structure.
The texture is quite gloopy and sticky and it reminds me a bit of honey. So what you need to do is use a spatula to apply a thin layer over the face. It might feel a bit tingly on the skin but this is normal. The key to getting the best results is to keep it on for 45mins. But, do not move your face so it’s an ideal time to take time out for some self-care. Have a little lie-down or a nap but do not move your face.
After, use a warm flannel to remove the formula and you’ll see lifting results immediately. For best results use 2 or 3 times a week for the first 3 weeks, to ensure maximum results.
In fact, one of our customers raved Diane Birch said that after just one use she saw instant results and everyone on her Zoom meeting complimenting her on how her skin looked.
Also, in the Liquilift range is the Liquilift Daily Cream – a moisturiser with tannins to give you effective skincare results after continued use.
