Given that I’m always on the lookout for new products to try, I jumped at the chance to review theexclusive Truffoire brand. For those of you not in the know, Truffoire is an up-and-coming luxury brand for anti-aging skincare, and they focus on optimizing the skin benefits of truffles. Primarily found in Western Europe, truffles typically grow in broad-leaved woodlands, on soil containing chalky calcium carbonate. What makes them so expensive (in food as well as skincare) is their scarcity, and their centuries-long association with upper class decadence. With antibacterial and antibiotic properties, as well as essential fatty acids and proteins, truffles have become a coveted ingredient in skincare. Truffoire, I believe, is one of the growing brands leading truffle-infused skincare — and I’m here to see if it works.
White Truffle Facial Peeling
According to their official website, theFacial Peeling has been designed to offer a powerful facial cleanse that gently diminish the appearance of built-up dry skin. The peeling is pretty straightforward to use: I applied it to my face, massaged in circular motions, and rinsed it off. You can use this twice a week, but I’ve used it once and already notice results. My skin is smoother and softer. I think the peeling helps to slough away dead skin cells and get rid of any dirt that may have got stuck in between those cells — which is really useful after a whole week of wearing makeup and running around in the city (in case you’re not aware, city air is polluted!). This one’s a keeper; it’s probably the best exfoliation product I’ve used.
White Truffle Eye Cream
It’s been said that your eyes are the window to your soul. If so, let’s hope your window looks good! TheWhite Truffle Eye Cream is buttery smooth to the touch, and it’s pretty lightweight. I actually loved this cream. After a couple of weeks using this eye cream, I’ve begun to notice a difference in my eye area. My dark circles aren’t so prominent anymore, and my eye area is smoother, less uptight and puffy. This product has a nice, truffle-scent. Great if you like truffles, even better if your boyfriend likes them — he’ll be wanting to kiss your eyes!
White Truffle Day Moisturizer
TheDay Moisturizer is infused with a powerhouse of vitamins, including Vitamins A, C and E, which are essential for good skincare. The product is non-greasy and it feels moisturizing on my skin. This product is particularly great for those with dry skin, or for the summer months when the weather gets a bit drier. It has a nice viscosity that doesn’t feel too heavy, yet remains rich enough to keep your skin moisturised.
Would I recommend Truffoire’s White Truffle Collection? Yes! Especially if you can afford it. This is not the time to skimp on your skin. In my experience, the products by Truffoire are effective and well-developed, the ingredients carefully selected and sourced, and the packaging très chic. Between you and me, this is probably the best value for money you’ll ever get, particularly for a luxury line. Get one of these fancy jars before Truffoire gets too well-known and starts hiking up its prices (you didn’t hear it from me!). Sending you kisses for beautiful skin xxx
