It’s Fabulous Friday! Where Desertdoll brings you dream items worth the splurge…

This is part 2 of my open love letter to Sjal, (first declared with my Serum 1 review). This time I’m concentrating on Cela Intuitif, their lightweight day crème that’s perfect for oily or combination skin. And believe me-it’s going to be equally mushy.

Skincare enthusiasts and mother and daughter team, Karen and Kristin Petrovich have created quite a revolutionary line. Of course it’s designed to nourish, treat and repair skin. But there’s so much more than that. Through years of extensive research, consulting with specialists, including research scientists, biologists, herbalists, nutritionists, and even spiritual intuitives, they’ve created a line that’s a mixture of Western science and Eastern medicine. Touted as the “Next generation of skin care for a holistic lifestyle”, this is a line that’s simple, yet extremely powerful. And popular too! Fans include models Heidi Klum, Yasmin Le Bon and Helena Christensen, It-Girls like Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan and the unbelievably perfect David Beckham himself (I bet Posh sneaks a use too). Add to that all the mere mortals who flock to high-end retailers like Barney’s, Bergdorf Goodman and Fred Segal and you have a luxury cult classic.

Cela Intuitif is a moisturizer with over 45 ingredients-all of which are active and chosen for a specific benefit. Key ingredients and their benefits include:

  • Natural exfoliating acids derived from Wintergreen Plants, Milk, Citrus and Apples for skin clarity and reduction of fine lines.
  • Anti-Oxidants like Green Tea, Grapeseed and Vitamins A, C and E for smoother and renewed skin plus protection from free radicals.
  • Moisturizers like Algaes and Pearl Powder complex that even pigmentation and brighten skin.
  • Lipids such as Squalane, Macadamia Nut Oil and Shea Butter that improve and prolong hydration.
  • Plus a dose of Gold, Silver and Sapphire essence for energistic and vibrational qualities (there’s that touch of Eastern holistics).
  • Put all these together and you’ve got a product that reduces the damaging effects of aging and promotes cellular turnover. What’s that mean exactly? Simply put, luminous, gorgeous skin. When my husband told me a week ago as I walked outside with my morning coffee (without a stitch of makeup) that I looked “glowy”, I knew Sjal was to thank. This may be the ultimate indulgence, but it’s a very worthwhile investment for comments like that.

    Ladies, does Cela Intuitif have you glowing too? Or would you like it to? Let us know…
