The Beauty of White Truffle
A little truffle history

A little truffle history 101:

Truffles have been used for it's culinary purposes since the 18th century, but people don't realize that it has also been used as a skincare ingredient as early as the 1950s.  Truffles are part of the fungi(mushroom) family and has been used as a rare and expensive culinary ingredient around the world for it's distinct aromatic flavor. It has become an extremely valued ingredient in many gourmet dishes with selling prices that could range around $1000–$2200 per pound.

 

 
 
How it is done:

Unlike many oils like avocado and coconut oil in which we can purely extract the oil from the ingredient itself; truffle oils are made by infusing the pure truffle extract(with or without the scent) with a carrier oil.  The same concept is applied to truffle ingredients in skincare formulas. 

 



 
Where we find them:

Often requiring the assistant of cute animals with highly developed senses like pigs to find these rare mushrooms, black and white truffles can be found across Europe.  But white truffles specifically, are found mostly across parts of Italy.  
 
Yummy and healthy:
Truffles have abundant amounts of amino acids and minerals but especially white truffles have shown to contain even higher levels of amino acids and minerals when compared to black truffles.
 
White truffles in modern-day skincare:
As the nutritious benefits of these edible delicacies have become well-known, it was just a matter of time until people started to incorporate the rare white truffle ingredient into skincare and beauty products.  And as much as we like to smell the truffle aroma in our pasta, we don't like our skin smelling like truffles.  So don't worry because all white truffle ingredient extracts used for skincare formulas are treated to keep all the nutritious stuff we like but without the smell!

Moist it up!
The mask your skin needs for Fall

I can already feel it: the dry leaves scent taking over the city, the nights getting colder, the hot morning coffee becoming a must, the breeze getting stronger and.. the skin getting drier. Couldn’t we just take the last one off the list? Is that really too much to ask?

Lemon Green Caviar Essence
Review BY Diana Siuta

I’m here to give you guys a short little review of this new product I’ve been using called the Code 9 Lemon Green Caviar Essence & Tox Tightening Pack Kit. Can you say that three times fast? I bet you can’t.

Code 9 is a product line designed by Neogen, one of my favorite skin care lines, so I knew right from the start I was going to love this exfoliator+moisturizer product. Below is the product description of the Lemon Green & Tox Tightening Pack taken off of the website.

Hydrogen: your secret weapon
behind hydrated and plump skin

I’ve said it before: my skin is not only combo but also very sensitive, and rosacea + acne prone… yeah, yeah, someone decided to add a little bit everything during the DNA distribution. Thing is for many year I just catalogued my skin as oily, because I used to think that was my one and only skin concern and that every other problem was a consequence of the oiliness. Oh, how wrong was I.

As the weather is colder and a cold breeze comes, you can feel that your skin gets dry and flaky. You try makeup by applying the BB cream or foundation, but it might not work well! By reapplying your moisturizer, you try to reduce the dryness and flakiness on your skin, but result would be same. Because It is not about a moisturizer, but an exfoliator!

Now is the perfect time to switch out your routine and get a right exfoliator to revamp your skin to a dewy, healthy one!
