I’ve been thinking about posting this article for a long time now. I’ve been away from Chicprofile for the whole 2011 year and during this time I used a lot of face care products from different brands. Probably I will make another post with the face care products I used in the last 6 months but for now I just want to show you which are the ones I’m currently using.
Some of you know that I prefer high end brands when it comes to take care of my complexion and if you have been reading Chicprofile in the past you probably noticed that La Mer and La Prairie are my favorite cosmetic brands. I’m also loving Clinique, Lancaster, Shu Uemura and I don’t say no to drugstore brands, because in my opinion the best products for my skin doesn’t have to be the most pricy.
I would love to know what products are your currently using, especially if you have oily to combination and sensitive skin like me. I really like to hear what are your favorite face care products and how important is face care routine for you. Do you take more care of your skin rather then cover it with makeup all the time? Please share your thoughts with the rest of us.
For me, face care routine is very important and it has been very important for the last 12 years. I don’t wear makeup everyday, I give my skin time to breathe and I never go to sleep without cleansing my skin (even though I didn’t wear makeup that day) and applying my face and eye cream.
Here are the products I’m using everyday (some more than others) so I will give you my quick opinion about each and every one of them. If you want me to review any of these products separately please just let me know.
I have combination skin (oily in the T-zone) and also my complexion is very sensitive. The advantage of having combination or oily skin is that once you get older your wrinkles won’t be so visible like if you had dry skin. If when I was a teenager I had to fight all those pimples, breakouts and nasty red spots because of the oiliness of my skin, now at my age I can enjoy that my complexion is aging slower than the ones having dry skin.

Last week I posted a preview article about Giorgio Armani Luminessence Skincare Collection but since today I got the official information with more details I though I should make a new post instead of updating the old one.
Luminessence, the new Armani hybrid skincare range, is the first to harness the natural power of light to brighten your skin from within, using its new “Bright Regen” technology. Skin light traps are corrected, such as pores, wrinkles and dark spots – and light can circulate freely again. An ultra natural and luminous glow is created, the Armani Light.
Asia Launch Date (without China) – March 2012
China Launch Date – March 2013
U.S. Launch Date – April 2012 (only Lotion and Serum)
Europe Launch Date – September 2012

Imagine more prominent looking cheeks, a smoother forehead and neck, and jaw lines with a firm sense of place.
For women who have de-aging concerns beyond lines and wrinkles and are looking for formulas designed to also lift and firm, Clinique introduces a new solution that awakens the entire face. NEW Repairwear Uplifting Firming Cream is formulated with ingredients specially selected to help visibly firm, volumize and restore skin texture. Skin achieves an immediate firming sensation upon application and with continued use skin begins to look “weightless” as the formula fights the longterm effects of gravity by helping to restore youthful volume.

Giorgio Armani Beauty has recently launched in Asia Luminessence Skincare Collection for spring 2012. For the moment the collection is available only in Asia but it will come online in U.S. later in the spring.
Light is essential to the skin. The better it circulates, the more luminosity, transparency and even tone skin has. As we age, the flow of light gets trapped in form of dark spots, pores and wrinkles. For the first time Giorgio Armani laboratories have cracked the code of how light operates in the skin. Luminessence builds directly on this knowledge to enhance the flow of light in its journey through the skin, creating a flawless skin that is enlightened from within.
The new skincare line utilizes Bright Regen Technology that brightens the skin from within.
Giorgio Armani Beauty is not the only to release a whitening skincare collection. Check out Chanel Le Blanc Collection (my post with information & photos)
