A Review of CITYLIFE Face and Eye Contour Sorbet Cream by Phytomer
City Life Can Be Tough
You can and should wear sunscreen to protect against the sun’s damaging rays. But that doesn’t protect against other environmental saboteurs, wafting around in the air, waiting to age your skin.
You can wash off some of the pollutants (so keeping your skin clean, helps). But even if you do, tiny bits of pollution (micro-particles”) can get into the deeper layers of your skin.
This is where they cause mischief: inflammation, dark spots, and they can even accelerate the other signs of aging such as lines and wrinkles. Pollutants can also break down your collagen and your skin’s lipid layer .(it’s the security gate for your skin).
Think of this as the “security gate” for your skin.
We aren’t purposely trying to alarm you, but we also want you to know that you can protect your skin a bit better with awareness, good hygiene, and good products.
Phytomer is one of the advicesisters.com’s favorite spa-centric skincare brands. *enter “Phytomer” in the search box on this page an our reviews will appear.
Its signature is using ingredients from the sea to help keep your skin beautiful and youthful.
Now they have developed an exciting new ingredient called “CITYSAFE”+ a blue micro algae and red algae that combines three marine sugars (thanks to biotechnology) and that acts as a shield against pollution .It also helps to treat dark spots.
As we were discussing Phytomer CITYSAFE with the Phytomer representative, she mentioned that the algae used in this ingredient actually helps to filter the water at Phytomer’s own labs. We may be over-simplifying the process, but it’s pretty amazing.
Along with CITYSAFE there’s Oligomer, a seawater concentrate with minerals and trace elements, that Phytomer uses in many other products to help your skin breathe properly even when it is subjected to a polluted environment.
Unique to CITYLIFE
Anti-pollution products are really nothing new to Phytomer as they’ve been producing anti-pollution products for over two decades. But this new Citylife product is unique in that you can use it everywhere, including your eye contour.
And what’s also great about this new multi-tasking product is that it not only collects and removes toxic micro-particles from your skin that can age and damage it, but it’s also a very luxurious, effective moisturizer. The consistency isn’t quite a cream, not quite a gel. It’s actually refreshing, a sort of “sorbet-like” formula with a light, fresh scent formula everyone (even the men in your life) will find appealing.
We can’t quantify Phytomer’s anti-pollution results, but we found it to be a lovely pick me up and a refreshing change from other moisturizing products. We liked the fact that we could use it everywhere on our face. It absorbed quickly and immediately our skin felt soothed and hydrated.
Phytomer says that in their tests, 47% of micro particles on the skin were removed after just 1 application on a dozen volunteers who applied the product for 15 minutes and then rinsed their skin. On 2 dozen volunteers who self-scored their own efficacy for 7-28 days, most of them reported more radiance in a week, and reduced puffiness and dark circles and dark spots in a month.
Based on our previous experiences with Phytomer products, we’d highly recommend this one for anyone who lives in an urban or polluted area.
The CITYLIFE Face and Eye Contour Sorbet Cream is $119.00 for 1.6 fl. oz.
