BOTOX … BUT NOT AS WE KNOW IT. A Beauty Blog Exclusive for Top Hat & Veils, by Gill Atacocugu.
Thankfully, I was blessed with a fairly good skin gene. However, like everyone, I need help to keep my skin moisturised and as radiant as possible. For years I have been carrying out the same face cleansing regime and using the same day face cream. It has been satisfactory but, last year, I discovered something much better than just satisfactory. Indeed, the day face cream I came across worked for me so well that I personally referred to it as ‘my wonder cream’.
I have never really been into wearing much make-up, therefore, I am not one of those women who spend big money on high-end products and have facials and make-overs in department stores or beauty salons on a regular basis. So for me to say that this product is, in my opinion, ‘wonderful’, means a lot.
It was whilst walking towards Harrods in London last year that a lady handed me a white sachet of daily face cream. I put it in my bag and went on my way. When I returned to my home in Suffolk I tried the said face cream. It quickly seemed to tighten my skin, especially around my eye area, and made my skin feel radiant. When the contents were almost no more, I went online to see if I could order some. I found a site in the US but they didn’t ship to Europe.
Fast forward to this year and whilst walking towards Harrods I came across the beauty shop with a man standing outside handing out the same sachets of day face cream. “Would you like to try this?” He asked. “I already have tried it” I said. “ I came looking for your shop again as I was so impressed with the face cream last year.”
“Come on in and let’s talk more”, he said.
Raphael is responsible for the UK and European side of the Vine Vera business. He explained to me that women, and also many men, want to their skin to look, and feel, amazing and younger. Not everyone wants to have traditional botox with injections, he said. Therefore, the company, Vine Vera, have produced a product which works as botox does but without the needles. This is called the Resverational Shiraz Instentic
A cream, (the amount the size of a pea) is placed on the finger and gently rubbed in a circular manner around the eye area. Occasionally, the circular movement is replaced with a gentle tapping movement in the same eye area. This makes sure that the cream is being worked thoroughly into the skin.
All the Vine Vera skin and cosmetic products contain resveratrol. This is the key ingredient to having younger looking skin; which is essentially being toned and pumped as the production of collagen and elastin is stimulated. Basically, the cream tightens up the elasticity in the face.
It is this extraction that has anti- aging benefits as it soaks through the pores of the human skin. Resveratrol can also be found in other natural products, such as peanuts, however more resveratrol can be extracted from grapes compared to peanuts. The company claim that if you wanted to obtain the same amount of resveratrol by drinking red wine, between 1,000 and 2,000 glasses would have to be consumed!
Apart from the ‘botox cream’, there are many other products for both men and women.
How Much Does It Cost?
I am the first to admit that these products do not come cheap. However, if your skin is important to you and you want to have the benefits of looking and feeling younger, it is worth the investment. I would definitely recommend trying the products, as those who have tended to favour them highly.
As far as the wedding market is concerned, which bride or groom would not want to have wonderful looking skin on their big day? Similarly, an adult bridesmaid, the best man, the parents of the happy couple and guests may all wish to experience the same marvellous feeling of having wonderfully nourished and great looking skin.
Hopefully, the Vine Vera products will become better known around this country. There are already plans to open a store in The Midlands. For those in the East of England, I am trying to persuade Raphael to supply some beauty salons or even to open another shop/spa area like the ones in Central London. Until that time, you can either treat yourself to a day in London, being pampered with the Vine Vera products, or you can shop online for them. www.vinevera.co.uk
As a wedding consultant and a woman, I would say that you owe it to your skin to look and feel great. Go on….invest in your skin.
