P C A Skin : Media launch

P C A – Physician Care Alliance

This is the first time for PCA Skin to be in South Africa and they really are making their presence known. The media launch took place in Johannesburg at the Saxon Hotel. Thanks to PCA Skin and Danielle Franco from Bush Telegraph Publicity, myself and a few other members of the media were able to fly out to Johannesburg from Cape Town to attend the launch.

The launch consisted of an informative presentation on the brand as well as their products. Shortly thereafter we were treated to a live demonstration in the center of the room, showing us how the products work.

Here’s a little snippet of the demonstration:

About the brand

PCA Skin was developed in America by an aesthetician and dermatologist in 1990. Their products are grounded in three core pillars; product innovation, excellence in education and unparalleled customer support.

science is beautiful

We hand select ingredients that are uniquely compatible with the skin and body to ensure the best results are achieved. Our finished daily care and professional treatment products are created to work together in customized regimens that deliver healthy, beautiful, younger-looking skin.”

I love how passionate they are in creating products that deliver outstanding results without any compromises on quality, their promise to deliver safe products, efficacy, ingredients and their zero tolerance for animal testing.

“The more I live, the younger I am.” Advanced Génifique

Lancôme Advanced Génifique  (Youth Activating Concentrate Serum) does not come cheap. It is a luxury product and therefore it comes at a price. I have been using this product every day now for the past 2 months and I continue to use it because it really has been working for me. It’s not easy finding products that deliver on the promises they make and I have had such unbelievable results which is why I would absolutely love to share my story with you…

My story:

I’ve been struggling with dry skin for a while now since being a student. I’m not sure if it’s been caused by stress, lack of sleep or that I’ve been using all the wrong products but I’m sure it’s probably caused by a mixture of a whole lot of things. I have been feeling that my skin had lacked moisture and therefore was not as soft and as smooth as my skin from the neck down. I’ve tried all the obvious remedies, I started drinking more water, I tried different facial masks and the list goes on; but there was little to no improvement.

My dry skin days are behind me now all thanks to Lancôme, Advanced Génifique! My skin is glowing and feeling so supple and highly moisturized. It feels so great to not have to worry about the condition of my skin! I started seeing results within the first few days of using the product and it continues to deliver everyday.

Appearance:

I love the classic and minimal appearance of the packaging. The glass bottle really adds to the luxury of the product. The pump dispenses the perfect about of product, preventing product waste and making application easier.

It comes in:

30ml – R780

50ml – R1060

How to use it:

Apply about three drops of Advanced Génifique Serum evenly across your face and neck and gently massage into skin.

Why this product is a must-have:

Advanced Génifique Serum targets the 10 key signs of youthful-looking skin: texture, resiliency, elasticity, firmness, sagginess, fine lines, wrinkles, radiance, even skin tone, clarity.

  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Improves the appearance of radiance, clarity, firmness, evenness in skin tone and texture.
