CALECIM Skincare – It’s Not A Miracle…It’s Science

I was a hoover where skincare products were concerned.

I was like a magpie, picking up the latest creams, lotions and potions and slavishly watching the latest video and embracing whatever the new ‘in’ product was.

However, the truth is that skincare products can only get you so far.  Genes, lifestyle and treatments are what really makes the biggest difference.  Skincare products are really the icing on the top.

They are not worth too much head space or bathroom space, and when I see influencers opening up their freebies or parading shelves piled high with products, it just makes me feel sick.

It’s simple BUY LESS, BUY BETTER.  I have learned that from Dr. Surbhi, who has cured me of my addiction to random skincare shopping.

We should learn from the men in our lives, they generally keep it simple and don’t buy into all the marking ploys. Honestly we are not missing out.

I was introduced to CALECIM by Dr. Surbhi.  She really does her research and I followed her lead and bought my first jar.  Yes! I really do buy my own products, shock horror, and only write about the ones I spend MY OWN MONEY ON.

I compare CALECIM to Tesla cars.  No frills, just great technology that really works. CALECIM are skincare disruptors, they don’t have fancy offices, expensive ads and neither do they court the bloggers.  They work with skincare experts and dermatologists, who know a great product when they see it.  CALECIM is widely used in post procedures to speed up healing and to improve the efficacy of these procedures, be it laser/micro-needling or chemical peels.

It’s all about the stem cells.  Lots of brands use stem cells but they are plant based and just no way near as effective.  CALECIM is the only brand using umbilical cord lining stem cells from red deer. This is the science bit as their parent company has developed technology to harvest the stem cells from the cord (no other company can do this).  These stem cells secrete proteins, amino acids and peptides which send messages to our skin and promote skin tightening and lifting.  Stem cells are crucial when we age as our own stem cells reduce dramatically.  The stem cells also promote a faster turnover of skin cells which leads to radiant more resilient skin.

There are four different products which I use, lets start with:

  1. The Multi-Action Cream:  Has a slight smell due to the high concentration of stem cells, it absorbs quickly into your skin and doesn’t leave any residue.  I use this daily, morning and evening and I have noticed that my skin is thicker, firmer and definitely more even
  2. If I need more moisture and feel my skin is dry then I add the Restorative Hydration Cream.  It is packed with hyaluronic acid, again derived from the stem cells; it triggers my skin to produce the right amount of moisture
  3. The Recovery Night Complex: I use as a mask and it dramatically reduces any redness or any discomfort, brilliant if you get sun or wind burn.  I put it on at night and wash it off in the morning
  4. Professional Serum:  Contains the highest concentration of cord lining and is used by dermatologists as part of laser/micro-needling.  It is a game changer as it reduces any swelling or redness.  I use it once a week as part of the process when I do my micro-needling at home

I have binned all my other products, other than Vitamin C, and now just use these 4 products.  My skin is less agitated, smoother, more hydrated and plumped up and my rosacea has improved dramatically.  It’s simple to use so you can just start with one product, which is what I did, and then add in the others and you will see that they work brilliantly together.

Make sure you tune in to my Instagram LIVE on Wednesday 9th of March at 2pm, with Ross Johnstone Calecim Global Head of Training. We will have samples to send out to those who are interested and participate!  Check out the Calecim website here or contact Dr. Surbhi and go in and have a chat about the products with her.

I absolutely LOVE working but 2023 is about more of a balance for me❤️
Whether it is making time for exercise or a chat on the phone 📞 
Or just lighting that candle / pouring a glass of wine and kicking back. 
Same with my kids great book from @claudiawinkle and she says the best thing you can do for your teenagers is to let them SLEEP 💤
I really have stopped buying mid level brands and either wait for the sales or buy preloved.

 It takes a bit more time but it is worth it ❤️
We have lots of styling  on our instagram stories to help you decide

This Balenciaga dress is one of my first preloved buys is over 8 years old and I still wear it.

As evening wear is worn so seldom it is much better to buy it preowned.

We have a huge edit from #Gucci to #roksanda all so well priced and ready to ship. 

We have individual videos and measurements on line to help you choose ❤️
Often cheaper than renting and you can go up the brand ladder and afford top brands as evening wear does not hold its value.

Pricing ! So important to realise that when you come to resell items it is a BUYERS market.

It is irrelevant what we paid it is only worth what someone is willing to lay out. 

Most of us are selling pieces we bought in the wrong size / don’t suit us or fit or just bored . 
My own personal view is once I have decided to sell it I want it GONE
I try to learn but getting something back is better than having it blocking up 🆙 your wardrobe. Or donate it if you can afford to. Lots of our clients help us support @royaltrinityhospice or the #salvationarmy

Bottega Veneta- truly resilient to wear and tear 

So many other brands stretch and wear so badly but in my experience Bottega bags don’t .
This is a real FIND - now £459 as new a real investment given that the new piece’s retail at over £2k

One of the only influencers I truly ADORE ❤️and actually buy the pieces she recommends that work on me. 

@monikh has a gorgeous contemporary yet feminine sense of style and definitely one to watch ! 
@monikh always looks comfortable and you know she doesn’t just put on an outfit for a photo. 
Not to mention the fact that she brings something new and doesn’t just follow the usual instagram trends.
I have learned from her about the subtle use of colour to add softness and compliment any outfit. 
We have put together a preloved edit from our store @relovedagain
