Lierac Rosilogie Redness Correction Neutralizing Cream

Redness happens - more often then you might think - whether from external factors like changes in the weather, pollution, hard water, harsh products or cosmetic procedures - or from internal factors like strong emotions, low level of skin tolerance, hormonal changes or even spicy food - fortunately there is now a cream that can deal with all these causes:

Lierac Rosilogie Redness Correction Neutralizing Cream - 40ml - $40 - a treatment cream for reactive skin that immediately comforts and after one month corrects 3 types of redness with 3 active ingredients:

sudden, temporary redness - caused by the response of neurons to aggressions, activating microcirculation - actioned with neuro-calming peptide - regulates the response of neutrons by increasing the skin's level of tolerance;

general redness - caused by a damaged skin barrier; the response of neurons is exacerbated and leads to inflammation - actioned with dextran - reduces inflammation;

and redness with visible blood vessels - in response to inflammation, new blood vessels form, become established and dilate - actioned with butcher's broom - reduces vasodilation and increases the resistance of blood capillaries.

Having been "blessed" with pale skin that becomes red at the drop of a hat, this cream has been a real saviour - not only does it gets rid of the itchy, uncomfortable feeling immediately but I have found that having used consistently for the past few weeks, that my skin doesn't seem to be as reactive to things that it normally would have been!

Available now at select Shoppers Drug Mart stores across Canada.

and a unique stretching formula to sweep on the ultimate lash extension effect - without compromising lashes for intensely lengthened, volumized, and defined lashes.
The brush is very different from anything I've used before, it's more like combing mascara on so it doesn't actually feel like you are adding any volume until you see the finished result and realize that you are!

Love your hair again with KerMax!

Looking for something to help to safely reverse the appearance of thinning hair and hair loss? Look no further then KerMax!

Combining the power of nature - fruit stem cells, peptide amino acids and botanical extracts in an advanced cosmetic technology delivery system to create a triple-action process that: 1) helps modulate and improve blood circulation to the scalp; 2) helps deliver nutrients and oxygen to the hair follicles; and 3) helps reduce inflammatory processes that denature hair follicles.

KerMax can be used safely on any hair colour, in conjunction with perm or colour treated hair, by any ethnicity and during any life stage including menopause, maternity and breastfeeding - it makes any  fine, thinning hair appear fuller, radiant with more vitality and strength.

The line includes:

KerMax Volumizing Shampoo with KerGro - 250ml - $24.99 - helps fine, thinning hair appear fuller and thicker while supporting a healthy scalp and hair thanks to a high performing blend of peptide amino acids and concentrated organic pea sprouts.

KerMax Volumizing Conditioner with KerGro - 150 ml - $24.99 - helps boost the volume and shine of thin, fine hair without the buildup of residue, while easing detangling to help avoid thinning hair caused by brushing.

KerMax Essential Day Foam with KerGro3X-a - 100 ml - $49.99 - helps stimulate follicles to reduce or stop the appearance of hair loss with a high-performing bio-complex of fruit stem cells, peptide amino acids, fruit and botanical extracts. Just apply the desired amount of foam each morning on dry or damp hair to targeted areas of the scalp. Gently massage in with fingertips, until the foam is fully absorbed, and style hair as desired - it even stays active after blow drying or heat styling.

KerMax Thickening Hair Serum KerGro3X-a - 70 ml - $49.99 - helps accelerate scalp vitality and follicle health to safely reverse the appearance of thinning hair. It balances both excessive oil and dry scalp for improved hair regrowth potential, strength and radiance. Every night, apply 20-30 drops  directly to the scalp over dry or damp hair and gently massage until fully absorbed or dried.

KerMax Styling Mousse - 200 ml - $24.99 - helps boost the volume and body of fine, limp and thinning hair - it resists humidity for a lasting hold, while strengthening and protecting hair.

I have been trying the line out and while my hair really does feel thicker, I had pretty thick hair to begin with so my before and after pictures really don't really show you anything useful - so to get the full effect of how well the line works, you should go check out the ones on the website, they are amazing!

Available now exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart, PharmaPrix and Brunet stores across Canada.
