Hi! I'm Lara, the creator and founder of Intellinesse. It took me a solid year to research skin, design the perfect product, figure out how to get it made, and save the money to make it!
Why create a beauty product?
When I was 38 I noticed my pillow/sleep lines weren't going away as fast. After a ton of research I learned that our collagen (what keeps our skin elastic) was being produced less and less after the age of 25 - so the creases won't "bounce back" as fast. Just like an iron going over a crease on a shirt again and again and again, the same thing happens with our skin. We move our muscles under the skin over and over and over in the same way, eventually, we have lines.
I also learned that if we don't do something pro-active here, the muscle memory will create permanent wrinkles. Once we have these permanent static lines, not even botox and filler can help. I learned all I can about why we wrinkle/age and what we can do to help keep our skin smooth, healthy and hydrated thus acting as a preventative and/or slowing down the visible aging process.
I set out to create something that was:
A good alternative to Botox: Paralyzing the muscle without the cost or the needles (Though, petals will help prolong Botox results!)
Surgical grade material - non irritating, hypo-allergenic, not tested on animals
Occlusive: Works WITH your current moisturizers - no need to replace any part of your routine that is already working AND it creates a micro-seal that pushes your moisturizers into the deepest layers of your skin helping them be more effective.
I wanted to create a product that I would use myself daily (I do!! I wear my petals every night!) I believe we beat out the competition. I am so proud of what I've created, and I hope you love these as much as I do
Let me know what you think!
