Celebrity Skin Secret Du Jour 6.17.09

One very lovely celebrity I came across at an event in LA last year told me about this skin saver and the celebrity was Cameron Diaz. While Cameron Diaz might not have the body or face of mortal, she sure has skin of a mortal, break outs and all. We got to talking and she told me about her skin secret Decleor. Decleor Ylang Ylang Night balm to be exact. She swears by its healing abilities, healing to moisturizing. She said that she gets A LOT of breakouts and this is the only thing to calm Anyway, being me and loving to try to new products I ran out and got it right away.

I have been trying this out for about 6 months now and I really love it. At first, I was very skeptical as it is a waxy feeling balm, I really didnt understand how this was supposed to clear up my skin, it look as if it was going to make a bloody mess out of it. I was wrong.

It really soothes stressed skin and calms down any flare ups or anything really. I love how soft the next morning my skin is after I use this. I also use this to de-gunk pores, which this is known to do. If I have any bumps under my skin I slather this on and the next morning then are on the way out. However, I never have has severe acne or even problematic skin. I get a few clogged pores here and there, a pimple around "that time of the month", so far severe acne problems I do not know how this would fair.

Let me comment on the smell, personally i LOVE it. Its an herbally, ylang ylang/ lavender smell. If you do not like that smell you will probably not like this product. I look forward to smelling this. Even when I do not use it, I open it up to have a whiff.

Give it a try...let me know what you think.


  1. Hey lady, I blame you for making me run out to buy all these wonderful products you blog about! I joke I joke, but really.. I am going to buy this!
    Sounds like a product I could beneft from, I get the odd spot around "time of the month" too so maybe it'll clear them up for me!
    I love Decleor, in particular their body oil :) makes my skin feel like silk the next day!

  2. Lydia- I recommend this to you for sure, especially if it is just an odd spot. I really love Decleor. Its great.

  3. You would love Liz Earle Intensive Repair Skin Balm (it's only a third of the price of the Decleor one!). Unfortunately it's only available in the UK but we could arrange that skincare swap I talked about and you could see for yourself.Her stuff is all organic and has essential oils. The Skin Balm is a great Dupe for the Decleor product, it's like wrapping your skin up in a cashmere blanket!

  4. I've been using the Essential balm for prob 8 yrs now! Everything you say is spot on - the gorgeous smell, plumping moisturising properties, decongesting properties too. It's a staple in my cabinet. It's a treatment for me.

    One tip - this is a musthave for airline travel.It acts as a barrier for me til I land and my skin feels so protected and moisturised for my destination! Absolute must have for me : D

  5. Moodeve- What a great tip!!!


  6. Thanks for this! I have the ylang ylang oil but not the balm so might see if I can nab a pot on ebay ;) I've tried the Essential Balm but it didn't seem to suit my skin, do you know if there's much difference between the two? xx

    P.S. I've given you an award on my blog :)

  7. Lisa- No i am not sure if there is much of a difference!

  8. Hi! After reading your review on this so finally i bought it 3 days ago, and so far im liking it. My face feels so soft when i wake up.
