GEORGETTE KLINGER SKINCARE SINCE 1941 | M x T C

Hey boys and girls, I am personally a very big fan of changing my skin care pretty much when I feel the seasons begin to change. Skin is the largest organ of the body. It consists of three layers of tissues: the epidermis, the dermis and the subcutaneous layer. The epidermis is the paper-thin outer layer of the skin. The outer layer of the epidermis consists of dead cells that are always flaking or washing off. These are replaced by new cells manufactured in the lower portion of the epidermis, which move upward to the outside of the skin. As they do so, the cells harden and die, some people have skin care that works for them but in a lot of cases the skin just gets used to what you are using.

This cycle of cell production and replacement slows as we age. It takes about 28 days for the average, middle-aged adult. As we grow older, this skin cycle slows to about 45-60 days in our 40’s and 50’s. It can further slow to about 60-90 days in our 50’s and 60’s. As this process slows, dead cells accumulate on the surface of skin causing sagging and collapse of structure or what we see as lines, wrinkles, and deeper folds. Bacteria can become trapped causing blemishes and breakouts. Discoloured and irregular cells can also become trapped causing spots, discolouration, and sometimes more serious skin conditions, which is why I find it very important to take care of your skin starting at a good age, and there are available treatments to correct what time has done on the skin but after it would be up to you to keep it up.

Georgette Klinger is a European line that was interested in my feedback so they sent me a couple of item, and in return I was asked to pick whatever products I was interested in and added to the PR list. The prices of the products are on par with what you will be getting, of course the moisturizers and treatments start to become a little bit more expensive but it’s the same with any brand, the difference is the ingredients.

Coconut Cleansing Milk I love using in the morning to take off all the oils and yucky stuff from the night ➡️ not to mention the aroma is so light but smells so good. Purify and deeply clean your skin of impurities — including pollution, dirt, and makeup — with this luxurious cleansing milk, rich in Coconut Oil and Coconut Extracts to prevent drying out or irritating your complexion. Perfect for all skin types, this luscious facial cleanser incorporates anti-inflammatory Grape and Cucumber Extracts to soothe as you wash your face for skin that looks and feels healthy, hydrated, and refreshed.

Vitamin C Complex  I really didn’t think I was going to like just because there has been so much active ingredients with Vitamin C but I truly was pleasantly surprised by this treatment, you should only us it at night time but I enjoy using it in the morning as well just a lot less and only in targeted areas – lighten, tighten and brighten your skin. Formulated with a stable, ultra-effective form of Vitamin C and Kakadu Plum, which boasts the highest source of natural Vitamin C in the world, along with extracts of Mulberry, Licorice Root and Lemon Peel, to help fight and protect against oxidative stress, this potent serum boosts radiance and luminosity and improves skin tone evenness. Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid promotes the absorption of Vitamin C, allowing this powerful anti-aging formulation to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, sun and age spots and acne scars while retaining moisture for more youthful, glowing skin.

” In 1941, Georgette Klinger brought the best of European skincare to Madison Avenue, attracting a vast, devoted, and influential following. Now, we’re celebrating 75 years of innovation and natural beauty.

There is so much about this skin care line that I could just rave about all day! But they have one product that I literally call my secret little weapon and that’s because it is, gone are the days of the night before a big job interview you get that feeling like you have a huge pimple coming and you wake up and sure enough there it is, right on your chin! It is even worse when it’s the night before a date and you get the same feeling, concealer can only do so much! Georgette Klinger created Charcoal Drying Lotion I promise you, if you feel that little tingle, and we all know what I’m talking about, apply this before you go to sleep and wake up do you thing, I will reapply a fresh dot on my existing dot just while I eat my yogurt, check my email, etc and then I shower, when you come out of the show, boom, it’s completely gone ➡️ now if this was a cystic pimple all you’ll have there is redness, no bump, no lump, and concealer can easily cover the redness and you are good to go!

Clear troubled skin at the source with this overnight spot treatment. Made with natural minerals and exfoliating Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs), the Charcoal Drying Lotion works fast to unclog pores on your face, jawline, chest, and back. Salicylic Acid begins by dissolving pore-blocking buildup of dead skin cells. Absorbent Activated Charcoal instantly draws out grease, while Zinc Oxide and Sulfur work deep to eliminate impurities and control excess oil. To calm the newly purified pore, cooling Camphor and soothing Calamine treat visible signs of irritation, inflammation, and sensitivity. Clarifying White Willow Bark minimizes redness and tightens the look of pores. Apply this treatment at the first sign of trouble, and you’ll wake up to a calm complexion that looks good as new.

MAKEUPANDTHECITY x VICHY – IDÉALIA

How’s it going makeupandthecity, 

  Today I thought it would be nice to talk to you about what I use on my face after I wash it with moving from one (1) city to another city with even more construction (dust) cars, buildings and people (pollution) I would always say it’s good to wash your face AM and PM for different reasons, of course you want to get rid of all your makeup, dirt, dead skin and the the city off of your face before you go to sleep. When you wake up you will have oils, dead skin cells, sweat, and dust that you will want to wash off to start fresh – on a microscopic level if you saw what was on your skin after a busy day and in the morning you’d want to scream!

MAKEUPANDTHECITY x CHARLOTTE TILBURY – top three (3) must have products 

Hey guys! How’s it going today! I’m back in New York City, which is now home for my amazing boyfriend and I. I was going to do PR UNBOXING of the new Urban Decay HEAT collection but way to many people are reviewing it and have so many crazy opinions. 

Let me just say companies do not send us “better” quality makeup then you buy – I understand why some who say or think that 100% but if you know how manufacturing goes they will only make so many of a certain product – say you need five thousand (5000) units, ok cool! But for five hundred (500) to one thousand (1000) made completely different for PR send outs it would be hard to find a manufacturer who would be cool with that, I keep it one hundred (100) with you guys. Always. 


So Charlotte Tilbury is nothing new to me at all like it is now for people, it’s new and amazing. I remember almost two years ago faulhaber communications which is an amazing full service PR and Marketing agency in Liberty Village in Toronto sent me a press package of products and it was mostly Charlotte Tilbury! 

LISTEN WITH ME!!  🎶

SMASH THAT FOLLOW BUTTON!! And don’t forget new followers only get entered in a chance to win a MacBook in gold! Share the post for another entry! (comment proof) 

Let’s get started ➡️

AIRBRUSH FLAWLESS FINISH compact powder is amazing – the packaging is all very luxury you’ll notice right away and in stunning rose gold, the mirror is also very high quality with a small bit of magnification which isn’t bad. I also love the little engraved star on almost all of the products. 

It really prevents excess shine and brighten complexion. Soft focus micro powders from nano-particles blur away lines and imperfections, sitting like a soft micro-fine cashmere veil on top of your skin it really does make your skin look airbrushed. Rose wax • Almond oil • Flow extracts soothe and restore skin for a healthy glow. 

It is labeled as a full coverage powder but it really depends on your application method, brush will give you a more light-medium coverage and with a sponge pad that comes with all pressed powders will give you fuller coverage. I actually never used the little powder sponges before but now I absolutely love them. 

PRICE ➡️ $60.00 for 8g and carton dimensions 76 x 84 x 16

BUT – it’s a good product and looks amazing on the skin. You can check it out here

THE RETOUCHER was made to be kinda like the retouching pen tool in photoshop where you just click and like magic whatever you don’t want to see is gone

Enriched with a radical Lipo-Siliconic compound and special elastomer pearls, it creates a natural healing veil of colour that blends seamlessly with your natural skin tone, so that imperfections disappear, pores, lines and wrinkles are minimised. It’s also very very hydrating which is always a welcome within any makeup I think the retoucher uses Black tea  • Vitamins • Paraben-free to help fill in hollowed out skin grooves, creating a smooth, seamless surface. 

PRICE ➡️ $48.00 for 3.5ml and carton dimensions 21 x 21 x 145

Check it out here, it works wonders with the AIRBRUSH FLAWLESS FINISH POWDER! ★

FILMSTAR BRONZE AND GLOW DUO is so amazing Charlotte Tilbury was killing the highlighter game before there even was one! Again luxury packaging in the signature rose gold! There is two (2) shades for this and the one above is for fair to medium skin – The bronzer is a blend of pearl and pigment to help contour your face and mimic that sun-kissed skin.

The highlighter has a golden base to universally flatter any skin tone, with Light Flex Technology to capture and reflect light just where you want it – which is a complete must for proper highlighting. Personally I think people are going a little to crazy with highlighting and forget just was artists use for in the first place! But then again makeup is about expression and fun so do you always! It is Paraben-free, of course.  

PRICE ➡️ $80.00 for 16g and carton dimensions 121 x 61 x 15

Take a look and find out more about the product here! Are you sucked in yet

SIDE NOTE ➡️ the brushes from Charlotte Tilbury are amazing and worth the money! They actually have some science behind them – the handle and the way it’s cut has flatten pieces so that they rest when you put them down and don’t roll onto the floor! And that is a trick from back in the 60s – cool, no?
