LED Face Mask from Bondi Body

Experience the ultimate in skincare technology with the LED Face Mask from Bondi Body.  This top-selling device brings salon-quality treatments to the comfort of your home, featuring four different infrared light settings designed to address various skin concerns, including acne, wrinkles, pigmentation, and overall skin rejuvenation.

The LED Face Mask utilises RED, BLUE, PURPLE, and YELLOW light therapies, each targeting specific skin issues. The anti-aging red light increases circulation, aids in wound healing, boosts new cell growth, and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. The blue light offers powerful anti-inflammatory benefits, effectively tackling acne and breakouts by reducing acne-causing bacteria and targeting sun-damaged skin. The calming yellow light soothes inflammation and redness, stimulates the production of red blood cells, and enhances overall skin rejuvenation. The purple light penetrates deeply to improve circulation, even out skin tone, and reduce hyperpigmentation and fine lines.

Clinically proven to reduce wrinkles in just four weeks, the LED Face Mask boasts an impressive 95% user satisfaction rate for improved skin tone, texture, and firmness. The patented flexible silicone design ensures that light penetrates every area of the face, delivering a powerful 10-minute treatment with 132 LED bulbs at 30mW/cm.

For those seeking a non-invasive, effective solution to enhance their skincare routine, the LED Face Mask is an indispensable tool. It offers the convenience of daily 10-minute treatments, allowing for consistent and noticeable improvements in skin health and appearance.   We’ve been testing this and it’s one of our favourite luxury beauty gadgets.

EviDenS de Beauté

EviDenS de Beauté stands at the crossroads of cutting-edge Japanese cosmetic expertise and the world-renowned elegance of French beauty. The brand was born from the vision of Charles-Edouard Barthes, who, inspired by his Japanese wife’s beauty routine, created an anti-aging skincare line specifically formulated for sensitive skin and suitable for all skin types. This fusion of Japanese technology and French artistry continually celebrates authentic beauty and grace, delivering undeniable results.

EviDenS de Beauté is a heartfelt tribute from Charles-Edouard to his wife and, by extension, to all women. Having fallen in love with Japan, its culture, and the splendour of its women, he aimed to develop the ultimate skincare line to honour their beauty. This passion is reflected in every product, which combines the Kaizen philosophy of continuous improvement with the high standards of French Haute Couture. Each product is crafted with noble, efficient ingredients, offering luxurious textures and sensual scents, enhancing both beauty and self-confidence.

The brand’s purpose is to provide women with a pleasurable beauty journey, combined with the satisfaction of visible results. EviDenS de Beauté collaborates with top scientists, such as Professor Ishibashi, to develop products that meet the highest quality standards. This commitment to excellence is evident in the brand’s adherence to the Kaizen philosophy, ensuring that even the most accomplished formulas are continually refined.

EviDenS de Beauté’s unique technology is exemplified by the use of Triple Collagen, a rare and powerful ingredient derived from extensive research on wild salmon from Hokkaidō. This ingredient, along with the patented QAI® Complex, directly stimulates skin regeneration, offering comprehensive anti-aging benefits.

The effectiveness of EviDenS de Beauté products is well-documented, with 92% of users reporting visible improvements in their skin’s appearance, 79% noting increased elasticity, 70% experiencing softer skin with reduced wrinkles, and 75% enjoying a brighter, more radiant complexion.

We particularly love the The Sakura Saho Skincare Range. The Sakura Saho, crafted by Charles Edouard Barthes as a tribute to his daughter Natsue, aims to preserve young skin’s self-regenerative capacity and delay the first signs of aging. This skincare ritual combines exceptional ingredients with remarkable anti-aging properties, including Sakura Extract for hydrating and anti-aging benefits, Gingko Biloba for its revitalizing and antibacterial properties, and Triple Collagen for moisturising and soothing effects.

Focused on maintaining youthful radiance, the Sakura Saho range uses Cherry Blossom extract to stimulate skin radiance and prevent aging, while Gingko Biloba enhances the formula with its potent anti-inflammatory properties. This combination protects the skin from pollution and environmental stress, unveiling and enhancing its youthful beauty.

Designed as a morning and evening ritual, the Sakura Saho ensures comprehensive skin care, addressing imperfections and enhancing natural radiance. Tested over seven days by 33 women, the range demonstrated impressive results: 91% reported increased hydration, 88% noted improved radiance, 82% saw fewer imperfections, 79% experienced refined skin texture and tightened pores, and 88% observed a more mattified complexion.
