Ceramide Plump Perfect is as good as Lancome's Resolution D-Contractol, less expensive, includes sunscreen and a chemical called Argiereline, a hexapeptide. It plumps, relaxes contractions and left an wonderful, rosy, fresh, and noticeably younger complexion.
Yuck yuck yuck! Luckily, I received these in a swap. My skin is about normal right now- neither dry nor oily. It felt like rubbing vegatable oil on my face. Very shiny and broke me out.
I really love this product. I have normal skin but have to fly frequently, and hate the leathery ravaged skin at the end of flights. This product is the answer to ALL my problems. I DO think it's much better than Idealist as a base for makeup, cos it absorbs into a silky-matte feeling that isn't dry or greasy and doesn't emphasis flakes like Idealist. It's expensive but I snip it at the neck and use each capsule 2-3times (tho the EA pple will probably kill me for saying this). I smooth it OVER face cream (seals moisture in) on the plane, and when I put on my makeup just before landing, everything looks fresh and fabulous. It also STAYS that way for the rest of the day in cold, dry weather.
I've used this in 35deg Celcius weather and it works perfectly. Great if you have flaky or irritated skin too.
I have to fly frequently and I hate the "leathery" look dry cabin air gives my face, and even though my skin isn't dry usually, I have to apply rich cream (Creme de La Mer) every hour or two and that's such a chore cos even La Mer can't keep my skin real fresh and smooth and other creams I've tried sat on my face in a shiny, unabsorbed layer for a long time.
After I popped my 1st sample capsule on a flight and smoothed it on OVER La Mer (seals moisture in although the instructions say to use it under cream), I bought a jumbo pack once I landed.
The oil absorbs after a minute or two and makes everything SO smooth and silky and the effect lasts an entire 4-hour flight PLUS the rest of the day in a dry and cold environment. The makeup I put on after that stays fresh but matte- not oily or cakey- for the rest of the day.
It costs a bomb, but I snip it at e neck and use each capsule 2 or 3 times (tho the EA pple would probably kill me for doing this...) On the flight, I smooth the remainder on my elbows.
I've used it in 35deg Celcius weather too and it works perfectly. Great when you have irritated or flaky skin but you need to put on makeup.
I think it is better than Estee Lauder Idealist. It absorbs quickly and leaves a velvet feel. Even though the capsules are expensive: $59/60 capsules. I used 1 capsule for 3 nights. So they last with me for 6 month. UPDATE: it clogged my pores.
These capsules contain a light, serum-like moisturizer that absorbs well and leaves a temporary silky feel to the skin. Great as a makeup primer, but not moisturizing enough for my dry cheeks. Does not contain any interesting/beneficial ingredients, which are an absolute requirement these days.
I didn't find that these Ceramide capsules to did anything. They were really moisturizing so I just used them on my cheeks, which left me with over 1/2 of the capsule's contents remaining - not very cost efficient.
These are excellent if not a little overpriced. They are these little tiny pink capsules, like the Pond Time Capsules, and they have a very hydrating serum inside, that when you twist them apart, squeezes out. All you do is apply a bit to your fingertips and smooth it over your face. It deeply hydrates the skin. I like to use these at nighttime because they are pretty emollient, and can make the skin a little slippery if you have a tendancy torwards overproductive oil glands.
