ON AIR: Make Me Like You – Gwen Stefani

After a lips SOS it’s time to “restore” your face. New year resolutions? A new skin, clear and bright and a healthier diet.

During the past month I’ve been testing three products from Odacité: two serums and a mask. This week I want to talk you about the serums.

December has been a crazy month: parties, sweets and feasts. I have combination skin and when I overindulge in carbs and sweets I break out. So I’m always looking for last-minute products and treatments to save my skin before events. I know that a healthier skin will come with a more balanced diet and a healthy body but there are times when you can’t say no in front of your fave cake!

Anyway, Odacité has literally saved my December life. If you don’t know this skincare brand you must know that Valerie Grandury, the Parisian-living in L.A. founder of Odacité, started all after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She quit her job, went back to school to become a health and wellness coach and embarked in the fascinating journey of removing toxins from her life. She said: “When it came to skincare, I was not ready to sacrifice performance. I wanted it all: efficacy + purity. Not finding, I started blending custom-made skincare, for private clients and myself. Word spread fast, demand grew quickly and so was born Odacité – French play on Audacity- marrying the best of two worlds luxurious French skincare & green California living”. #girlpower

1st place goes to Pe+C. Why? Because this is the first product who really kept under control my period and holidays breakout.

What is it? 

Pe+C = Peach+Cypress. Light penetrative serum concentrate that helps to balance sebum.

How to use it: 

Add 2-3 drops morning/night in your moisturizer (DAILY SKIN BOOSTER). Massage 2-3 drops onto clean dry/wet skin (INTENSIVE TREATMENT).

Final verdict:

I decided to use it as an intensive treatment: 15 days every night before going to bed then only on my T-Zone. 3 little drops work for your face and do wonders. Peach oil and Sea Buckthorn minimize excess oil and reduce the appearance of pores (I had a couple of visible pores at the side of my nose, after only a couple of days they started to slowly disappear!). Cypress and Grapefruit have astringent properties and help your skin staying matte (bye bye oily T-Zone). A super light serum: similar to a dry oil, super fast absorption with an incredible scent. Try it alone before going to bed: relax your mind and clean your skin!

AROMATHERAPY PROPERTIES: Cypress is know to help combat fatigue and improve concentration.

2nd place goes to Ac+R.

What is it? 

Ac+R = Acai+Rose. Ultra-strenght antioxidant-rich serum for a smoother, firmer and ageless skin. Winner of Elle ECO BEAUTY AWARDS.

How to use it: 

Add 2-3 drops morning/night in your moisturizer (DAILY SKIN BOOSTER). Massage 2-3 drops onto clean dry/wet skin (INTENSIVE TREATMENT).

Final verdict:

First ingredient of this facial serum concentrate is Acai berries. Their oil improve all the visible signs of skin aging: tone, texture, elasticity, wrinkles and firmness. Rose oil improves skin oxygenation. As for the Pe+C, I tried this serum alone. First time I used it I woke up with that famous “baby skin“: smooth, soft skin, bright and with no sign of a bad night! Then I started using Pe+C only on my T-Zone and a couple of drops of Ac+R all over the face. This is a dream combo for my skin: I’ve never had a clearer complexion. Same for the previous one, the scent is so good and the serum so light!

AROMATHERAPY PROPERTIES: Rose is a powerful aphrodisiac.

Odacité products are VEGAN&CRUELTY FREE and do not contain parabens, petrochemicals, phthalates and fragrance.

 

P.S.: I quiet using them for a week and my skin is still clear! I know they are a little expensive but trust me: they work and the fact you need only a couple of drops to have real results (aka little box but long lasting) justify the price!

Did you ever tried their products? Any advice? Can’t wait to try new serums! See you next week with a special review: Odacité Synergie[4] Immediate Skin Perfecting Beauty Masque!
