I have been using this product on/off for over two years now. If I remember correctly I was one of the first 20 people to snatch it off the shelf when it hit the counters. The whole idea and concept behind it made it really hard not to be at least intrigued and somewhat tempted to try it. The salespeople seemed super excited and were ready to have this product sold out in no time.
Le Metier de Beaute(translated into “the craft of beauty”) describes this tinted cream on the Bergdorf Goodman website better than I could ever explain it. Here is a brief summary so you understand what the whole concept is:
This luxurious, tinted treatment fluid is a 4-in-1 product: a foundation, 2) sun protectant, 3) anti-aging fighter and 4) radiance brightener.
Offering sheer, lightweight coverage, Peau Vierge Anti-Aging Complexe provides a sheer wash of flawless, luminous finish. The formula feels like second skin with a gossamer-like texture. Light-diffusing pigments help fade away lines and instantly impart a renewed radiance and healthy appearance to skin. With SPF 20, Peau Vierge helps guard against the damaging effects of the sun.
The exclusive, patented Syntoc Actif® delivery technology is highly compatible with the skin and easy to metabolize and is able to penetrate the skin barrier, more efficiently and effectively, to deliver the anti-aging powerhouse ingredient Retinol known for its ability to smooth and plump wrinkles from deep below the skin’s surface, stimulating collagen cell rejuvenation and bringing elasticity back to skin to the deeper layers of the dermis where all the action takes place.
Peau Vierge Anti-Aging Complexe helps to stimulate collagen production, increase blood flow, lessen dark circles, smooth fine lines, blur blemishes, and tighten pores within a week of once-daily use.
Now the reason I don’t use it frequently is because you are not suppose to use it in accordance with a retional product (ie retina-a, tazorac) because it already has retional ingredients. That can be overkill and negate the effects of what this product can already so without incorporating other harsh ingredients. But when I do use it I absolutely love love the way it smooths on to my skin leaving it flawless, smooth and dewy. If you prefer more coverage you can always use a powder over it.
After frequent use you will notice brighter and smoother skin.
It has won many different beauty awards because of the technology behind it and people who use it swear by it. What more
It comes in three tasteful shades and retails for $125 for 1oz. Can be purchased at Bergdorf Goodman, and selected Saks.
