While the brutal chill of winter appears to be finally over, my facial skin is imbalanced and acting finicky due to winter’s assault.  Although I attempt to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle, I still notice that my skin is lacking in firmness, luminosity, refined even texture, spotty dryness, and lacking in an overall healthy appearance.  Winter is the worst for my skin, and sometimes it’s difficult staying ahead of the season’s wrath.  I recently had an opportunity to test products from DECLÉOR, France’s leading skincare company.  My grouping of products had formulations of pure essential Neroli oil, which is prized for its anti-aging properties. 

Since 1974, DECLÉOR has been the definitive pure plant and essential oil based skincare company from Paris.  Their formulas marry nature’s purest with the most current scientific advances in skincare.  The products I tested were the perfect antidote for healing, restoring, and revitalizing under performing and lackluster winter-weary skin.  The product’s advanced formulations nourished and rebalanced my finicky skin, nullifying winter’s environmental and climatological side effects.  Consistent use of these exquisite products became an integral part of my daily skincare regimen.  My skin was rebalanced and reset to a healthy state, and as the quality improved, I also noticed that the results were accumulative.

Using these products felt like I was enveloping my skin with a blanket of treatment comfort.  I also loved the aromatherapeutic aspect of the products.  Each product was quickly absorbed, left no tacky or greasy residue; hydration levels were consistently maintained throughout the entire day.  Both the texture and levels of dry and normal skin areas became more balanced the longer I used the product, and left my skin vibrant and healthy looking.  The skin looked and felt firmer, had improved elasticity, and the fine lines and wrinkles were visibly diminished; pores were minimized.  The texture appeared and felt more refined.  I loved the texture and feel of each of the products…rich, luxurious, and silky.  For more information on this extraordinary company and its beautiful products, visit
