Champagne skincare? Now that's something different to the ears compared to snail facials and bee venom skincare that we keep hearing of these days. I had heard before that Champagne is great for the skin but Aysse is the only skincare that has derived that has champagne derived from the Champagne region.
"The rare and unique ingredient contains three grape varieties; Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier which are all grown in the clay and limestone soil of the Champagne region. These are the grape varieties that are used to make Champagne. Contrary to other wines that are made from only one type of grape, Champagne is known as an ‘assembled’ wine.
Each grape provides, among other things, its rich content of mineral salts, trace elements and vitamins, which results in a high concentration of these components in the wine."
I got to try 4 products from the range and I have to say I am quite impressed. Overall, the product packaging feel high end yet chic, much like Sisley - fuss free and not chunky. The white and gold combination works quite well for the brands high end image. The product formulations are nicely scented, have a rich, hydrating feel and a lovely lifting and firming effect. Just after using the products a few times, I can tell it's not geared towards oily skin types. Combination skin type girls can get away with it by using it a few times a week. But it would be best suited for those with normal-dry skin tones who have issues with ageing.
The Anti-Fatigue Serum is a bit of a unique formulation. It dries matte on the skin and gets absorbed fully in just a few seconds of application. Quite unusual for a formulation that's meant to leave skin radiant and glowing. It has some brightening effects to it and my skin likes it but honestly, I would expect it to have a richer texture and leave my skin looking dewy and moist. Nonetheless, it's priced reasonably and would make a lovely treat for Christmas due to it's dreamy glass packaging.
The Hydrating Masque is simply gorgeous. I've used it a few times now and it leaves skin super soft and actually glowing. Again, I feel it's more suited if your skin is drier or more mature but a lovely contender when skin's feeling exhausted and needs a quick pick-me-up. It claims to increase hydration levels by 37.6% in 8 hours after use. I felt the results are true if you use it a couple of times per week. Give this a go, if you're planning to get just one product from the range. It's a slightly more affordable alternative to the cult-favourite Sisley face masks.
The other two products I have is a Hydrating Moisturiser and an Anti-Ageing Moisturiser. Aaah, I cannot tell you lovely these feel on the skin. You literally need only an pea sized squirt and the emulsion will allow you to spread it till your neck and chest. Now this shows you instant results in terms of skin brightening, hydrating and radiance hence my vain self loves this for instant results. At £34, choose one depending on your skin concern. I'd personally get the hydrating one once I run out as it's more suited to my skin type. These didn't break me out so I'd recommend it for those with combination-normal-dry skin types.
