I got introduced to the Swiss skincare brand Alchimie Forever over a month ago. Being Swiss myself I was very excited to try out some of their products – how could I not be? I may be biased but Switzerland is known for excellent quality and attention to detail and that’s exactly how I’d describe Alchimie Forever.
A mutual friend introduced me to Alchimie Forever’s CEO Ada Polla and seeing as we’re both Swiss we instantly bonded over Nespresso coffee. We discussed our view on skincare and the company’s mission couldn’t speak more to what I believe in:
We believe that your skin is the mirror of your soul, and that taking care of your skin daily, effectively, gently, is essential to your self care.
All of their formulations are dermatologist tested, cruelty-free, vegan-friendly and paraben-free. Their products were developed with 30 years of clinical experience and combine the most powerful natural antioxidants to combat anti-aging while protecting the skin and making it more radiant. I’ve been using several of their products over these past few weeks and am excited to finally share my thoughts with you.
Pigment Lightening Serum: This serum helps against uneven pigmentation, redness and lightening brown spots. When I started using this I had a few sun spots on my face from being out in the sun too much and this serum made them disappear in no time. I was also positively surprised what a difference it made with my redness on my cheeks and forehead. I’m almost finished with this serum as I apply it twice daily and my skin just loves it. It’s moisturizing enough for me to wear it on it’s own in this summer humidity and the perfect base for my night cream.
Kantic+ Intensely Nourishing Cream: This one’s specifically for dry and sensitive skin as it’s rich and moisturizing. Right now I use it as my night cream but once it’s less humid out I’ll also use it as my day cream. It’s the perfect addition to the serum as it works to reduce redness and restore skin elasticity. It’s packed with jojoba, vitamin E (one of my favorite ingredients) and among others, blueberries. The cream has a comforting sweet scent and it’s just one of those products where I look forward to putting it on my fave every night.
Kantic Brightening Moisture Mask: I was eager to try this one as it was featured in this years Vogue Magazine as one of the best brightening masks. It soothes and calms irritation, reduces redness and brightens the skin after a long day at work. I LOVE using this twice a week in the evenings to brighten and calm my face down. It contains oats which is amazing for softening and calming down the skin and also has that same sweet scent as the Kantic+ Intensely Nourishing Cream.
Gentle Cream Cleanser: Keeping with the calming products, this gentle cream cleanser is exactly what it says. It calms sensitive skin, reduces redness – and of course, removes all of your makeup (including eye makeup!). It’s creamy consistency is perfect for normal to dry skin as it doesn’t strip your skin from too much moisture but still provides you with that clean, freshly washed face. I’ve always stayed away from cleansers in the past because they felt too stripping on my (very) dry skin and I’m so happy to have finally found something that still lets me feel hydrated afterwards.
Dry Skin Balm: This balm was made for me and my dry skin. It’s lightweight yet provides you with enough moisture to really hydrate those extra dry spots. I keep this on my nightstand and use it on my elbows, knees and feet right before I go to bed. I love it because it’s not that heavy, greasy kind of balm but still provides me with enough hydration to feel satisfied. One of it’s main ingredients is watercress and I love being able to smell the freshness before I go to bed.
There is no denying that I love skincare. I believe that if you have good skin you can use less makeup and you’ll thank yourself 10 years from now. It’s kind of crazy – and wonderful – to find a skincare brand like Alchimie Forever that believes in the same values that you have.
As soon as you start using one of their products you’ll understand their commitment to skincare, the quality of the products and the fact that they actually work and make a difference. How have I been able to tell? Well, up until now my cheeks have always been super red and uneven towards my neck area. Now they are as smooth as can be and a lot less irritated. And if you’re wondering what my favorite product is out of all of them? I’ll have to get back to you on that because they’re all wonderful…
