If you have been following me then you know that I have been searching for the perfect body lotion for what seems like forever! I really wanted certain ingredients to help firm and moisturize yet that was paraben and chemical free. In addition to this, I needed it to either be fragrance free or be very mild because I am allergic to most fragrance in a big way. This seemed impossible! I used coconut oil (which I love) almond and avocado oils but I truly wanted a thicker lotion for my dry skin and that would also have ingredients that prevent aging. While filming a movie in Canada this summer I happened to discover Karine Joncas Cosmetiques at a local drug store. This is what it claimed:
The 5 in 1 Collagen Body Cream is a daily youth elixir for the entire body. Highly concentrated in collagen, hyaluronic acid, shea butter and argan oil, this cream helps maintain the appearance of a younger, firmer and incredibly smoother body. Nourishes and delivers intense hydration to skin that is dry, crepey or sagging. Provides a “new skin effect” and a long-lasting ultra-silky touch to the skin.
Fragrance Free – Paraben Free – All Skin Types
I thought hmmm might seem to good to be true. This is EXACTLY what I had been looking for. There was one bottle on the shelf left so I grabbed it and spent the $30 Canadian and hoped for the best. I am not kidding you when I say, this cream was everything it promised and so much more!!! My skin felt like silk. I was thick consistency but absorbs almost immediately. It is so moisturizing and soothing. I am hooked!!
When I went back to stock up before coming back to the states, they were completely sold out!! In 4 different stores! But I did happen to notice that she has an entire line of beauty products that looked amazing. To my delight, when I contacted the company about the moisturizer, they sent me their entire line and let me tell you guys, it just kept getting better and better. Please note, that while the products were gifted to me, my opinions are my own and absolute truth to my experIence.
In addition to the body lotion, here are a few of the products I am in love with.
You know I have been a fan of the Shiseido and Skyn Iceland ones and I am still a true fan but these are just as amazing!! I have been using them to help with my puffiness and dark circles and they have been doing a phenomenal job! Just leave them on for 15 minutes and nobody will ever know you didn't get eight hours of sleep last night or that your allergies suck right now!
YOUTH ESSENCE SEA BATH BODY WASH
If you want to feel like you are spending the day at a spa in your daily shower or bath than this is your jam. It smells like lavender and a whole bunch of yuminess! It leaves your skin feeling smooth and hydrated and is just the best body wash I have ever used. Period.
What it is:

Efficiently reduces and prevents the appearance of puffiness and dark circles. Also provides a lifting effect for sagging eyelids, fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. Clinically proven.
Paraben Free – Fragrance Free
ou can even use it on your brows to help regrow them (I am assuming) I havent been using this long enough to tell a difference but I love the feel of it! I naturally have long lashes so I am not sure how much of a difference it will make but I will check back with you guys on this. As far as an eye serum though, I LOVE IT!! One of the other great things about this line is a lot of the prodcuts can be used for multiple purposes (Eyes, face, neck, chest) so it definitely saves on having to buy multiple items.
PEPTI COLLAGEN 3D
What it is:
Especially formulated for lips and their contour.
Provides a plumping effect while rapidly smoothing the appearance of stubborn lines around the lips (fines lines, vertical lip wrinkles and smoker’s lines) thanks to the revolutionary SWT-7TM complex.
Day after day, the lips look plumper, fuller and more defined.
Instant and long-lasting results with daily application.
Paraben Free – Fragrance Free
I have been using this daily and I love the effect. I put it on right before bed and wake up to moisturized lips! It also helps with lines around the lips so be sure to go outside your lipline.
SO what do you think? Will you be trying any Karine Joncas products?
