Afternoon Delights Workshop with Eve Lom, Talika and Perricone MD

So yesterday morning, yours truly got ready to go to Svago in KLCC for an Afternoon Delights Workshop organized by Luxasia to promote 3 luxury skin care brands , Eve Lom, Talika and Perricone MD. The workshop was held in a cordoned off area on the 1st floor of Svago and there was a long table with mirrors, tissues, and brushes etc on the table.

In a corner table, there was the Talika products on display.

The table for the participants.

The luxury skin care sets also for sale. But it is a bit too much to pay I guess for people like me... one of these sets cost anywhere from RM500++ to Rm2000++

This is Ms Rebecca, she was our facilitator and taught us all about beauty using the three brands. We started off with Eve Lom's cleanser and mask.

 EVE LOM  believes anyone can achieve a beautiful radiant complexion through straightforward and effective skincare. Whatever your age, skin type or skin concern, proper cleansing and gentle exfoliation enables your skin cells to regenerate quickly, and creates a vital receptive base for beauty products to work at their best. So that’s the EVE LOM core philosophy: perfectly cleansed, exfoliated skin is the key to a glowing complexion.
A testimony to their success is that this philosophy is now the cornerstone of top skincare routines around the globe. Their multi-award-winning cult products have become beauty insiders' secret weapon – and are still unrivalled in a highly competitive market. Today, with over 25 years’ expertise, EVE LOM is acknowledged as an authority in advanced skincare – and is highly sought after throughout the world, by those seeking luminous, youthful, healthy radiance.

Eve Lom's cleanser smells heavenly with eucalyptus oil and chamomile. It is definitely very relaxing... I think this was one of my most favourite products of all the products tried...

THE EVE LOM FACIAL TECHNIQUE    (taken off from www.evelom.com)

Based on the principle of perfectly cleansed skin EVE LOM developed a unique massage technique for lymphatic drainage. Designed to be performed when cleansing to relieve tension and leave skin revived and radiant, each Cleanser comes complete with a leaflet detailing this special massage technique and a signature muslin cloth.
AYou can achieve a beautiful, radiant complexion, simply by following our unique 7 step facial technique twice a week. Used as part of your nightly routine, the technique encourages improved blood circulation, muscle tone and lymphatic drainage, while helping eliminate toxins – so dull, blotchy, congested skin is transformed. 
If your skin’s tired, sallow or you suffer from blocked pores or puffiness, follow steps 1 to 7 twice a week. If your complexion is clear, you only need to apply the cleanser and follow movement 7 of the routine every night.

Smooth EVE LOM Cleanser over the entire face and neck on top of makeup. Beginning behind the ears, apply deep pressure with the pads of your fingertips and circle down to the collarbone. Repeat 3 times. If tender or painful, this step should be repeated each night until tenderness disappears and a smooth flow is re-established.

Place the fingers in the centre of the forehead, from brow-bone to hairline. Press firmly, hold for a count of 5, and release. Move fingers slightly, press, hold and release again. Repeat across the forehead finishing at the temples.

Place 3 fingers under the eyes either side of the nose (leave the little finger out) and with the hands almost flat, apply pressure, hold for a count of 5 and release. Continue in small steps working down to the jaw-line.

Place fingers above the upper lip, press firmly, and hold for a count of 5 and release. Continue around to the corners of the mouth. Repeat 3 times.

Place fingers, spread like a fan, under the cheekbones and press, hold for a count of 5 and release. Continue in small steps working down to the jaw-line.

Place thumbs under the chin and fingers on top. Press, hold for a count of 5 and release. Continue along the jaw-line finishing under the ears.

To complete the facial hold the muslin cloth soaked in hot water over the entire face, take a deep breath through the nose and hold the muslin in place for a count of 7 to 10 seconds. Repeat 3 times. Rinse out the cloth and remove all traces of makeup and Cleanser by using circular exfoliating movements. Rinse the cloth in cold water and apply to the face.

After cleansing and cleaning off the cleanser, we started using Eve Lom Rescue Mask and Moisture Mask to "spring clean" our pores.  The Eve Lom Rescue Mask is suitable for oily clogged areas like your T zone while the Eve Lom Moisture Mask is ideal for dry skin.

This is how the Rescue Mask look like. Do not throw away the water you see there or your mask will turn dry.

I applied the Eve Lom Rescue Mask on my nose and part of my  forehead and used the Moisture Mask for the rest of my face, as my face is a bit dry.

Our multi award-winning, weekly complexion booster and emergency treatment for sluggish, stressed-out skin.

Rescue Mask has won In Style's award for “Best Mask for Congested Skin” for seven consecutive years.

Featuring Camphor, Almond and Honey-infused Kaolin Clay, it is the perfect weekly deep clean to keep your complexion in radiant condition. Rescue Mask is also on hand when skin becomes stressed and in need of extra help.

    The best thing after using Eve Lom's products, you do not need a toner to clean further....

    Then it was time to play with our eyes area.

    These are the magical tools. Eyebrow Lipocils to grow more eye brow hairs, and or Lipocils for  longer and curlier real lashes naturally in 28 days!!

    Beauty products often aim to make us feel better about ourselves in one way or another. The basis for TALIKA products is to help women feel more serene and happier, according to the vision of the company’s president, Alexis de Brosses. The extensive product line includes treatments for eyes, hands, and nails. A respect for nature and the company’s customers ensures that each formula contains the best ingredients and produces highly desirable results.

    The TALIKA brand began in 1948 with a focus on creating innovative and effective aids for various beauty needs of women. The company’s laboratories continue to develop new and exciting products to treat common beauty concerns. The full collection ranges from eye brow conditioners and extenders to eye makeup remover, nail regenerating serum, and more. The lash enhancer Lipocils is a best-selling product that began in the Hôpitaux de Paris’ ophthalmologic department. 

    Doctor Danielle Roches’ discovery started as a treatment for face and eye burns suffered by war victims and soon became a fast and dramatic way to grow and lengthen eyelashes. Visible results are only a few treatments away with natural and dermatologist-tested TALIKA products.

    TALIKA Eye Detox Contour Gel acts effectively to reduce and prevent dark circles and bags. Rich in restructuring, smoothing and tightening active ingredients, Eye Detox Contour Gel truly revitalizes and helps eyes look younger. It brings a fresh and relaxed look to the eye contour after only three days of treatment without risk, irritation or sensitivity.
    • Comes in the form of a slim pen that is very practical to use.
    • Ultra-effective treatment to reduce and prevent the appearance of dark circles and bags.
    • Clinically proven to reduce dark circles and bags from eyes.
    • After 30 days of use, an 85% reduction of dark rings and 92% reduction of bags are observed.
    Directions For Use:
    Use on clean face (no makeup). Remove cap and twist bottom of tube clockwise a few times until the gel comes out at tip of applicator. Apply gently or pat around eye contour area going in a counter clockwise direction. One application daily (morning or evening). Let dry for a few minutes. Apply makeup.

    Talika, a precursor in the cosmetic use of light, has created Cream Booster, the applicator which enhances the effectiveness of all your skincare products. The combination of three exclusive technologies in one device delivers a targeted and reinforced action from the active ingredients, for even greater effectiveness. Your moisturising cream becomes a super-moisturiser, your anti-wrinkle cream a super-anti-wrinkle treatment, and your purifying care a super-purifier. 

    The three technologies:
    > Galvanic Current
    Ions propel the active ingredients deep inside the cell by reducing resistance ten-fold for a period of several minutes, the time it takes the ingredients to reach their target.
    > Phototherapy
    Orange light (590 nm) activates cells, which start to behave like young cells again, using the full potential of the active ingredients. 
    > Gentle Vibrations
    Vibrations boost local microcirculation, improving intercellular communication. Active ingredients are better distributed through the stratum corneum to the benefit of all cells.

    Galvanic Current + Phototherapy + Gentle Vibrations the equation to boost active ingredient effectiveness! 

    A plant extract based gel for the growth of eyelashes. Lipocils guarantees naturally longer and thicker eyelashes in just 28 days !

    In normal conditions, our lashes never reach their maximum length : they fall out, they become brittle and break because of pollution, use of make-up and make-up removers, lash extensions, etc.

    Using this was kind of exciting and scary at the first time. Exciting because of all the benefits and scary because we are not sure how to operate it and when you put it in contact with your skin, it can massage your face but it can also be a little stinging..

    Last but not least, we were told to apply the Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation. I love the finish and the texture of the product and the feel on my skin, but I did not quite like the smell which is coppery aka fishy....
    The Perricone MD Face Finishing Moisturizer was for people whose skin was really that dry... and as mine wasn't so dry, I opted not to use it.
