Care X Laurent Sebastian

Hi Everyone,

I hope everyone is enjoying the summer and holidays. Speaking about summer… We love to take care a little bit more of our skin in the summer season to protect our skin to the sun and refresh it with shower products. Albert Heijn the Netherlands introduced are brand new line called Care. This line includes shower products, cremes and several health supplements for both women and men.

 

In collaboration with Alberth Heijn i started to try out the showergel and bodylotion. The shower gel has a great scent and refreshes the body followed by a nice body lotion to keep the skin hydrated ( Especially in summer). The great thing is that the price and quality balance is perfect. The products are meant to be for every budget and people who want a quick skin or shower product without to much of a struggle.

All the best,

Hospitales San Roque beauty treatments

Hey Guys!

 

As you all have seen i was visiting Gran Canaria last week for a press trip with several Hotel & Spa organisations. You could actually say that i was on a beauty trip for men. Which includes massages, wellness treatmens and awesome diners! But there was also on visit to an organisation that i wanted to highlight on my blog, my visit to Hospitales San Roque in Las Palmas. San Roque Hospital in Las Palmas is located in the district of Vegueta, is the leading health center on Gran Canaria. With a history of spanning back nearly a century, the hospital offers its experience serving the community of Las Palmas combined with modern facilities and state-of-the-art technology! Making it one of the best and modern hospitals on this island.

One thing that i noticed during my tour through the Hospital is that it is actually devided on several buildings on 15,000 square meter which makes it like a small village. So after my tour it was time to meet my doctor for the day and have a little talk about the Hospital itselve and the treatments that i was planning to do. I was introduced to DR Jaime Ospina Molina. Honestly one of the best guys i ever met on professional and private level.

Dr Jaime Ospina Molina is specialized in:

Personalized cosmetics and dermopharmacy

Correcting lines and wrinkles

Radio frequency combined with mesotherapy

Correcting lines and wrinkles

Personalized cosmetics and dermopharmacy

 

San Roque offers a wide range of non surigical treatments which are safe and have no risks 🙂

 

After talking with my doctor it was time for a skin analysis of my face, to be honest my face was kind of red from the sun that i took the day before my visit. So i had to tell my doctor this. After some seconds he asked me if i ever thought of Botox. My first thought was well but on a natural way. So this was just a botox to relax my nerves in my jaw and forehead. ( Has a result for 6 months and has no risks) Just be honest and always tell your medical history before doing it. Such as allergies that you deal with, this is important to prevent an allergic reaction to botox.

 

The other treatment that was offered was the Radio frequency combined with mesotherapy

 

This novel technique re-hydrates the skin and restores the elasticity lost with aging.  It involves infiltrating hyalouronic acid in the skin along with a multivitamin complex.  With this treatment we quickly and safely obtain deep hydration, producing smoother, brighter skin. Moreover, after several treatments, the method increases the activity of fibroblasts, providing a healthy, fresh and youthful appearance. Honestly it was a facial mask for 20 minutes and my skin was on it’s best afterwards! 🙂

Fractional Laser

Wrinkle removal and skin resurfacing rejuvenation using a laser is an accurate and effective method that produces long-lasting results.  The CO2 laser precisely and uniformly removes the sourface of the skin, layer by layer, making it possible to clearly define and select the desired depth of resurfacing (a tool of vital importance when it comes to treating wrinkles and other skin conditions such as acne scars, crow’s feet, etc.).  CO2 is the most effective ablative resurfacing method. But i was not able to catch sun after this unfortunately 🙁

 

I think the whole experience in general was very positive to me! I got to know the medical world a little bit more and got suprised by what there actually is out there on te market. People always asume that Botox is the only solution for a never ending youth. But there is more and it doesnt has to be done with an injection. But as my age is 25 and you want to prevent wrinkles or other skin conditions you have to start with these treatments when you are fully comfortable and want to prevent deeper skin wrinkles in the future.

 

 

 

Hope you enjoyed my blog

 

Best,

 

Laurent

 


 

 

 

 

A fresh start of 2018!

Hi guys,

I started the New Year quite good with a private Spa treatment in Belgium. (A secret of mine is that I’m a real hygiene freak and that I really feel disgust by sharing a pool or sauna with strangers.) I felt like I wanted to have a clean body mind and soul for 2018. The last year has been amazing to me and I couldn’t wish for a better progression, so I’m very positive about this year! I’m all focused on myself and my vision in life, I started to care less about others and their opinions. As I’m a workaholic and travel a lot I always put hydration and skincare on number 1 , as i need to look representative in my position. In this blogpost I will show you some selected items that I got from L’Oréal to try out.

 

 

This is called the ‘Hydra power Range’, the first Men expert line which offers 48 Hours hydration to the skin. My favorites are definitely the hydra energetic gel and the day crème ‘Hydra power’. To be honest I use these products mostly when I’m in the gym or a spa.The thing that i noticed about the Hydra power is that it absorbs quickly into your skin and hydrates without being overly oily. This is perfect after the use of a sauna.

 

Maison Caulieres X Laurent Sebastian

Over a year ago I got introduced to Maison Caulieres in Paris, which is basically my second home when you scroll through my Instagram. I got invited by the owner/friend to take lunch in the boutique located in one my favorite neighborhoods in Paris called ‘Montmartre’. The first thing that really got my attention is the eye for detail in the boutique, it’s really minimalistic and classy. The presentation of the products in these colorful packages is just beautiful. The boutique is like a living room full with different product lines of Maison Caulieres, from body scrub to hand crème. Once you open the door to the back of the store you will find a beautiful office with a cozy fireplace and books full of the heritage of the brand. I got a whole introduction from Xavier about the ingredients of the products and the strong French heritage of the family. Did you know the Maison Caulieres family at first was specialized in producing their own honey for about 100 years!

 

After smelling and using many of the oils and body products I got a deja vu. The aroma of some of the products were so intense and familiar that it reminded me of some great memories. Maison Caulieres believes that the products are all made for body, mind and soul, which makes sense to me as the whole body is connected with different nerves. I also got to tell that the natural ingredients such as honey, oils and sunflower are beneficial for your skin of course but also for your health! Ps. Queen Elizabeth II the Queen of England is also using the products that must say enough about the quality and image of Maison Caulieres.

 

Another great thing about Maison Caulieres is that it is exclusively working with Rosewood Hotels & Spa’s all over the world. Wich are leading Hotels and known for its luxury and outstanding service. Back in 2014 Maison Caulieres launched its products in London in one of the oldest department stores called Fortnum & Mason. This is just one of the places where the products are displayed cause Hong-Kong and Dubai are on te list aswell. But this year it started one of the most beautiful collaborations with the most luxurious hotel in Paris called Hotel de Crillon. I can really tell that I’m a daily user of the products now and I keep stocking it up every month. One of my favorites is the body scrub called ‘Richesse des sous-Bois’, I use tis scrub once a week and it really gives you a clean velvet skin. I can keep talking about Maison Caulieres and my experience with it, but I think it is time for you to try it out after reading this blog.

 

Specsavers X Laurent Sebastian

Yesterday I was invited by Specsavers to select a pair of glasses by choice.I admit that I sometimes have troubles with my eye view when it comes to distance or while I work on my laptop. So this was the perfect occasion for me to do a personal visibility test in one of the Specsavers stores in the Netherlands, whilst having a cup of coffee with one of the opticians. I want to thank Specsavers for the amazing service!

 

In the visibility test they show letters and images in different sizes, and I have to admit the smaller they got the more I had to squeeze my eyes to read the signs clearly lol. Thank god my optician told me afterwards that I only have a very tiny minus in both of my eyes. So he gave me the advice to look for glasses specially made for reading and distance visibility.

 

I picked this one from the collection, it looked really cool and vintage as this style is really upcoming again! After wearing it for a while it is really comfortable and it really matches every outfit which is important for me. Besides this I also have chosen for a light gold frame on this pair of glasses to give it a classic appearance. Ps. I’m wearing a Jofama lamb suede jacket here called KING 7.

L’Oreal men Expert X BarberClub

So as you all know we are in the middle of the Movember month. This is an annual event involving the growing of mustaches during the month November to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as testicular cancer and prostate cancer. For 30 days your mustache turns you into a walking, talking bill. L’Oreal Men Expert supports the Movember Foundation.  The kit that i received for my colaboration with L’Oreal men expert looks very masculine and well presented. I will tell you more about this kit below.

The kit includes:

 1 A beard + Face + Hair wash

2 Styling cream for your hair and beard

3 Long beard & Skin oil  

4 Short beard + Face Moisturiser 

 

 

The great thing about these products is that every guy can use it for his beard, from a short beard to a long beard. The other great thing about the ingredients of this product range is that it is 100% free of dyes and parabens. This is great as i have a very sensitive skin and really need to watch with what I apply to my face.

 

Short beard & Face moisturizer

This is for the daily care of the beard of less than 1 cm long. This face moisturizer is full of natural oils and hydrates the skin plus reduces the itching feeling that you have sometimes with a beard. This would be my section as i have a very short trimmed beard. This is personally an advantage as i want things easy to go in the morning, wash my face and add a moisturizer to it. So you could say this is my favorite of the series 🙂

 

Beard + Face + Hair wash

This all in one wash keeps the beard crispy clean and gives an intense face cleansing.

 

Styling cream for your hair and beard

This hair + beard styling cream gives a strong fixation to when it comes to shaping your haircut or beard for 24 hours.

 

Long beard & Skin oil  

For daily care when you have a longer beard and want to maintain the skin under it as well. Most men with a longer beard complain about the itchy feeling and a dry skin. This would be the perfect skin oil for them as it takes care for both skin and the longer hair of the beard.
