Russian women are known to have great skin, thanks to beauty rituals that have been passed on for many generations. When a Russian beauty queen develops a skincare line, it’s definitely worth taking a closer look! That’s why I didn’t think twice when I was invited to meet Julia Lemigova (former model and elected Miss USSR) and learn about international luxury skincare line.
In the days before Russie Blanche, while Julia was modeling, she took a business trip to Thailand. Julia became very inspired by the Thai culture and energy, and decided to fuse some of those elements with her love for natural beauty. Joïya, Julia’s first well-being center, opened its doors in 2003. It quickly became the “it” destination in Paris for exceptional skincare, especially for socialites. Clients couldn’t get enough of the secret concoctions that Julia mixed up, so she decided to launch her first skincare and spa line in 2009 called Russie Blanche.
Russie Blanche seamlessly blends Russian beauty secrets and ingredients with French elegance and performance. With ingredients such as adaptogenic Russian plants, patented active ingredients, and essential oils, the products are destined to provide results. All of the products in the collection are natural and cruelty-free, containing not a single trace of parabens, silicone, mineral oils, or artificial colorings.
During my visit at Russie Blanche, I had the pleasure of enjoying a facial. The 30-minute facial was a taste of heaven and healthy treat for my skin. Stephanie, my esthetician during my visit, applied numerous products that left my skin feeling smooth, hydrated and glowing for days.
Julia also was kind enough to send me on my way with a full-size jar of her Siberian Petals Moisturizing Mask-cooling effect. This mask is such a dream and it’s quickly become a staple in my Sunday spa day routine. The mask has a light, creamy texture that applies like smooth icing on a cake. It includes ingredients such as Siberian Ginseng (regenerating), White Orchid (soothing and moisturizing), Patchouli (anti-inflammatory properties), and Pink Pepperberry (scar healing properties). After applying it for 10 minutes and washing it off, my skin is left feeling energized and fresh.
