Sweet Awards | February

22 February 2023

The big winners of February's SWEET AWARDS have arrived! This month's choices are based on the pillars of a hyaluronic acid moisturizing routine.


Eau Cellulaire - Institut Esthederm

Eau Cellulaire - Institut Esthederm

Eau Cellulaire, is a water inspired by skin water, which guarantees perfect affinity and tolerance with the skin, as well as preserving youth and cell viability, the first vector of youth. I have been a fan for years and use it literally every day! It is a water that mimics the intracellular water of the skin.

Much more than a water, it is a care of excellence, for the day to day, due to its composition in:

  • low molecular weight hyaluronic acid, which promotes skin hydration
  • carnosine with high antioxidant power
  • hypotaurine, which stimulates the metabolism and the production of energy by the skin cells
  • citric acid, naturally present in the skin, will adjust the pH
  • and mineral salts: potassium, sodium, calcium and magnesium

It can be used by all skins, even the most sensitive ones. Fragrance-free, it has an ultra-fine spray. You immediately feel that it hydrates the skin!

It is very interesting to have 3 presentations: 30, 100 and 200 ml, adaptable to all situations, whether on the go, at the gym, on the beach, in an SOS skin care kit or at home!


How to use Esthederm's Eau Cellulaire? 

  1. Spray onto the skin (face and/or body) before your moisturizing routine, applying light pressure to help penetration. This gesture increases skin hydration levels by almost 20% when applied before moisturizing care (serums and/or creams).
  2. It can also be used at any time of the day to moisturize the skin (face and/or body) or also to set makeup and does not need to be dried after application.

 Enjoy a more hydrated and protected skin!


H.A. Intensifier - Skinceuticals

H.A. Intensifier - Skinceuticals

Those who know me know that I don't skip a hyaluronic acid serum in my face routine (morning and night) and this is one of the pillars that every face routine should incorporate.

I have known about Skinceuticals' H.A. Intensifier for several years and I always have it with me. It is much more than just a hyaluronic acid serum: it is a 2-in-1 multifunctional serum - an intense hydration serum, with 1.3% high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid - and also an anti-aging serum, with 10% Proxylane, a patented anti-aging molecule, 2% dipotassium glycyrrhizinate and 0.2% purple rice extract that together have a synergistic action:

  • On loss of firmness
  • On the signs of aging
  • In the filling of the skin
  • In hydration
  • On lines and wrinkles

Dipotassium glycyrrhizinate is an active ingredient derived from licorice, with anti-inflammatory, healing, and skin regenerating action. Purple rice is a cereal of Asian origin, which contains large amounts of anthocyanins in its composition, well known for its antioxidant properties.

This is a serum that significantly increases hyaluronic acid levels in the skin, up to 30%, which has been scientifically proven.

It has a water-gel texture with excellent penetration, nothing sticky and can be used by all skins, in any of the routines (morning and/or night) and all year round. It is therefore a deeply cross-cutting care that I really like!


How to use H.A. Intensifier from Skinceuticals?

  1. Apply to any skin type immediately before moisturizing care, all over the face and neck.
  2. Tip: it can also be used on the eye contour and lips before the respective specific care products!
  3. It is also an excellent after care for aesthetic procedures, especially after fillers.
  4. It works especially well after a routine with exfoliating acids or retinol.

 In the end you just enjoy a deeply hydrated and cared for skin!


Sensibio Defensive Sérum - Bioderma

Sensibio Defensive Sérum - Bioderma

A very, very recent novelty that will not go unnoticed! It won me over right away! It is the new member of the Sensibio family, a line specifically designed for sensitive skin, and a care adapted to both adults and teenagers.

It is a serum that has in its composition hyaluronic acid that moisturizes the skin and minimizes lines, carnosine and vitamin E that protect with antioxidant action, tetrapeptide-10 that strengthens the barrier function, red sage polyphenols and fucose polymer for a double anti-inflammatory action and squalane, an excellent moisturizer that leaves the skin beautiful and soft, without getting heavy or greasy.

This serum is a must for anyone suffering with sensitive skin. It acts on the vicious cycle of skin sensitivity, decreases skin inflammation and restores balance to sensitive or sensitized skin. It hydrates the skin for 24 hours while soothing and reinforcing the skin barrier while also protecting the skin from free radicals. It is a very complete care!

I was very surprised by its cosmeticity, with an ultra-light texture, fresh and quickly absorbed, without sticky effect and with an optimal tolerance, without fragrance and that leaves the skin satiny!


How to use Bioderma's Sensibio Defensive Sérum?

  1. Apply to any type of sensitive or sensitized skin, in teenagers or adults, immediately before moisturizing care, all over the face and neck.
  2. Can be used throughout the year in morning and/or evening routine.
  3. Can be used as a pre or post procedure care as well.

 Enjoy soothed and hydrated skin!
