Being that I get introduced to so many different beauty products out there, it’s surprising I haven’t tried much from the K Beauty (Korean Beauty) market. I remember when BB Creams started to gain momentum here in the U.S, and trying a few brands I heard about, but I never ventured past that single product into the world of their innovative skincare. K Beauty is known to have some of the most advanced formulas in the world, creating products that are effective and appeal to the senses. Seeing that there wasn’t enough effective options out there, Caprice Clinical brought the best in K Beauty to offer by bringing Thelavicos to the states.
Available exclusively online and through professional skincare therapy providers, Thelavicos offers the very best in clinical skincare with a very luxurious feel. If you’ve ever been to a derm or med spa, you know they can be super picky about what they promote — so having Thelavicos chosen as something an office will carry gives it some extra weight in my book.
I was lucky enough to get my hands on two of their products to see what makes them different from the rest. The Thelavicos Nutrition HydroGel Mask and the BioRepair Wrinkle Eye Cream ended up on my doorstep a couple weeks ago and I’ve tried them both out and wanted to share my thoughts with you guys.
First up was the Nutrition HydroGel Mask. To be honest, I’m usually a bigger fan for masks you apply with brush or your fingers. Sheet masks don’t always fit well and you have to worry if it’ll stay on for the recommended time for it to do it’s work. I will say that this mask fit WAY better than most because it comes in two pieces, and it’s made of a pliable hydrogel material instead of flimsy paper. Because of the durability of the mask, the packaging suggests you can use it up to two times, by carefully placing it back in the pouch and then sealing in a large ziplock to avoid it drying out. This mask is extra juicy! Not only is the gel soaked with “the good stuff”, there is ample amount left in the pouch to give you that second mask time and then some. I was able to squeeze out the remnants and use on extra parts (neck, hands) a couple of times. The mask promises to give you that refreshed, hydrated and plumped look we all live for — and I can say that it 100% left my skin looking and feeling better after using it. After taking off the mask I could immediately notice that those fine lines on under my eyes and on the high points of my cheekbones were flattened out and hydrated. I have deep lines on my forehead and while it didn’t make those disappear, my skin looked incredibly healthy. I’m not familiar with the key ingredients in this mask, but they definitely do something for my skin. Soybean Ferment Extract, Niacinamide, Palmotoyl Tripeptide and Red Ginseng are just a few of the powerhouse ingredients in this mask. Final verdict. This is MUST TRY. You definitely notice a difference when you take of the mask and you will want to use every drop of that liquid gold on your skin because it works!
Next up was the BioRepair Wrinkle Eye Cream. I will confess that I usually forget eye cream. I put on so many other serums and things that eye cream usually falls to the wayside. But being that the mask worked so well for me I was a little more than intrigued to try out the eye cream. This cream promises to fight wrinkles, offer a brightening effect and firm up the delicate skin around the eye area. The ingredient deck lists some things that I was curious to look up, so I thought I would share with you guys what I found out. Edelweiss flower — known as one of the best natural anti-aging ingredients out there and works as an antioxidant, skin plumper and moisturizer. Snow Lotus extract works as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant that nourishes tired skin (hello, new mom under-eye-bags!!), and Soybean Ferment Extract which is nutrient dense component that soothes and replenishes the skin.
I used this cream morning and night — not even using a full pump – more like half a pump for both eyes and found that it absorbed rather quickly and did not interfere with foundation or concealer. Sometimes creams will break down you makeup and you’ll have those creases of excess makeup under your eyes –well, not with this cream. Verdict: definitely a useful product if you remember to actually use eye cream. I hope I will remember now!
