My favourite writer of all times once said: “I don’t believe in ageing, I believe in forever altering one’s aspect to the sun”. I don’t know whether this sentence makes much sense to the modern woman of our time who is more concerned about crease lines, dynamic expression lines and gravitation folds rather than finding her spot under the sun, but for me, I learned quite early on to differentiate beauty from ageing when looking myself in the mirror. Smooth wrinkle-free skin doesn’t necessarily mean beautiful and equally, beautiful doesn’t necessarily mean young or perfectly proportioned.

What I always strive for when stealing that moment to look in the mirror, is a healthy, vibrant face and body. I strive towards a refreshed and vital glowing skin and not necessarily perfectly done make up or fuller lips, blow dried hair and chiseled cheekbones. This means that I care a lot more about what’s on my plate and how much I exercise than having the perfect manicure and skincare. Yet, there comes a time when you know that taking care of yourself internally has to be backed up with the proper skincare products, perhaps some supplements and a well groomed look.

And when it comes to skincare, in the times of the beauty cult we live in, it is never easy to choose what’s right. There are so many factors beside what you want for your skin. You need to consider the environment you live in, the seasons and climate change, and even your stress levels. So as much as it is about your self-esteem and how well you think of yourself, it is also about being able to raise your confidence from the outside to the inside: feeling good about the skin you live in.

Once I passed the age of 35 I tried a new product on the market called Age-Stop. Not that I believe that you can stop age, but I do try to keep my mind open, so I tried a product with a fairly impressive list of ingredients on the label, such as Swiss Snow Algae, Royal Epigen P5, Matrixyl® 3000 and Swiss Alpine Plant Stem Cells, which have won numerous international cosmetic awards as the very best ingredients in anti-aging science and skincare.

Two years after I tried the Perfection Concentrate I keep buying it and it turns out it is the one cosmetic line I’ve stayed loyal to for years. The product has now become a best seller worldwide and soon the line will consist of four products, and three more products are being developed as we speak.

In general I don’t have problem skin, so there was no dramatic change, but the way my skin feels is just different and that is enough to convince me. I will, however, not try to convince you but instead pose a few questions to Lilia Bassi, the founder and CEO of Age Stop Switzerland about ageing and how you can support your skin health after 35:

Tsitaliya: How did it happen that you started making your own serum Age-Stop? In other words why did you start producing AGE STOP PRODUCTS.

Lilia Bassi: Since the age of 17 I have had a life – -long ambition of producing my own Skincare line of products targeted towards anti-aging, I have had 3 fails on the way before AGE STOP PRODUCTS products became a Success in Switzerland and World-wide.

Tsitaliya: What is the biggest myth about ageing?

Lilia Bassi: For me the biggest myth about ageing is that genes play the biggest role in how you age. Not true. Even if you’re born with the healthiest set of genes, how you live your life determines how they behave over your lifespan. Your genes can be changed by what you eat, how much physical activity you get, and even your exposure to chemicals.

Tsitaliya: In what way women can slow down the process of ageing of the skin?

Lilia Bassi:

  1. Use SPF
  2. Avoid over-exfoliating
  3. Avoid doing too many conflicting in-salon treatments
  4. Don’t Smoke
  5. Eat lots of Seafood, fruits + vegetables
  6. Avoid drinking Alcohol -it does show on your face after 40
  7. Deep sleep and relaxing massages are important to balance your mind and body which leads to slower ageing process

Tsitaliya: You also are a beauty blogger – for how long, tell us a bit about your story of becoming an entrepreneur?!

Lilia Bassi: I have been blogging for about 4 years. But I have always been an entrepreneur and with my commercial banking background it was only a matter of time until I started on the path of my life -long dream of owning my own Skincare Brand. In short, I have always aspired to be the next Estee Lauder. Blogging was just a way for me to share my knowledge.

None of my blogs are sponsored -hence my viewers value my honesty as I say what I really think of the products I try.

I am using very exciting anti-aging skin care products from a.g.e.stop Switzerland This post is about the Mimetic Peptides Night Miracle Cream

I am very excited to let you know that for the past 10 days I’ve been using some exquisite anti-aging products from a.g.e. stop Switzerland.
The creator of the products and owner of the brand a.g.e.stop Switzerland is one of my beloved YouTube skin care gurus Lily.
She is someone I trust completely when it comes to skin care. She is not only extremely knowledgeable about skin care but also walks the talk. Her skin is wonderful and perfectly natural. No fillers, Botox or anything else artificial. In her videos, she is not wearing make up, she doesn’t seem to care about the lighting when she is in front of the camera. No matter the angle of light, her skin is amazing. And I don’t think she has any sort of special filming equipment. As you may know, many Youtubers have wonderful filming equipment with special lenses which make the skin look flawless……..
Anyways, back to why I admire, respect and trust Lily from iamabeautyjunkeechannel on Youtube- Whenever I followed her advice and recommendations I got great results. Below you can watch one of Lily’s videos in which she talks about the Mimetic Peptides Night Miracle Cream. This amazing peptides cream is the topic of this post.
About 15 days ago, Lily posted a video with a special offer 2 products for the price of 1 and I went ahead and made a purchase.
I bought the  newest a.g.e. stop product called Royal Epigen Perfection Concentrate and the second cream I was given was the Mimetic Pepties Night Miracle Cream.
My package arrived very fast with free Swiss post. Lily had included a sample for the  Oxygen Fusion Beauty Sleep mask and another  for the Swiss Bio Stem Cells Perfection concentrate.  ( I will write about the products I got in the form of very generous samples ( 10 ml each)  in another post. All I can say now is “Wow!” Make sure you come back to read my next posts).
To be honest I anticipated that all a.g.e. stop products will be amazing because they are literally packed with  well researched, well formulated, award winning ingredients which deliver measurable results. How do we know that they deliver measurable results? Because there is clinical research on those!
So I expected to be amazed and I am. It has been only 10 days since I first started using the a.g.e. stop products and it may seem too early to rave about them. But to tell the truth,  I wanted to write this post 5 days ago. That is how soon I saw a difference in my skin!
The first thing I noticed was that my complexion was more even toned and there was a glow to my skin. Not shiny, oily kind of glow, but a healthy, pearl- like glow. Also, my skin felt and looked supple and nourished, moisturized and comforted. One problematic area for me is under my chin. The skin there is pretty crepey and saggy. Well, the crepey skin under my chin is a thing of the past. How did that happen?
And as you may know, I am no stranger to super duper wonderful moisturizing and nourishing products. But nothing made such a remarkable difference to my crepey skin under my chin.  And certainly no other products gave me a healthy glow. To be honest, until you experience it, that “pearl-like glow” I am not sure if you would understand what I mean by that. But my skin is glowing! I still have my acne scars, uneven texture and all that, but my skin is healthier looking.
Just as I have faith in the peel for indented scars by Devotedthings, I have great faith now that the a.g.e. stop anti-aging products when used over several months will transform the texture of my skin. And here is why. One reason is that Lily, the creator and owner of the brand a.g.e.stop is someone I trust completely in regard to skin care. Her passion  and integrity in regard to skin care is unparalleled.
The second reason is the amount of scientific research that backs each ingredient. I consider myself very fortunate to get my hands on such powerful products. They are 50ml and now even 60ml for $85 each. Taking into consideration the powerful ingredients and the volume of product given, the price is just great. Oftentimes, for that price you are only given 30ml of a product with a few peptides…
Talking about powerful ingredients, here is what I mean. Did you know that Swiss Snow Algae which is the main ingredient, powerful, award winning ingredient present  in all a.g.e.stop products is actually a key ingredient in the super expensive La Prairie, Switzerland? La Prairie and a.g.e. stop buy the Snow algae ingredient from the same company called Mibelle Biochemistry.
Have a look at the ingredients for The Mimetic Peptides Night Miracle Cream
Swiss Snow Algae-award winning key ingredient in all a.g.e stop products
Alpine Rose Stem cells-they boost epidermal regeneration and improve the skin barrier function.
Oligogeline-Red Algae Extract
Bio-Mimetic Peptides-They prevent and diminish wrinkles. In this cream we find the three most known, most established, most awarded peptides.
Hyaluronic Acid-Lily says that if you are serious about anti-aging skin care you must have this ingredient in pretty much everything.
Vit. B12
Other wonderful ingredients included in this cream:
Brown seaweed extract
Penthanol
Niacinamide
Jojoba yeast
What I find totally clever is that the list of ingredients is not only posted on the a.g.e. stop website, but next to each key ingredient,  in bullet points we read why this particular ingredient is amazing for the skin. And what is more,  if you are scientifically minded and wish to read up on the Clinical research behind the benefits of each ingredient, you are provided with a link to that information. How clever is that!?
Just to show you what I mean, I have taken the information below from the website:
Swiss Snow Algae (please visit www.snow-algae.com to view Clinical Research)


  • Increases anti-ageing processes in the skin cells by (+47%).
  • Clinically proven to promote the longevity of skin cells.
  • Strengthens dermal connective tissues by 30.5%.
  • Inhibits collagen destruction in ageing skin cells by up to 47%.
  • Significant increase in skin hydration and a reduction of wrinkles by 25% in 14 days.
Every ingredient is explained like this. I love it!
What else?
The cream doesn’t have SPF and that is why it is called Night cream, but I can and have used it as a day cream. I wear sunblock every day anyways.
The cream has light texture, no scent and it applies beautifully. I would prefer some scent but I am not bothered by the lack of scent.
It is so gentle that it is used after skin laser procedures.
I love the fact that it can be applied around the eye area. Lily doesn’t believe in eye creams. All her products can be applied around the eyes and have been formulated and tested so that they would not irritate the eyes.
As you can tell I am very impressed with a.g.e. stop anti-aging products.  In this blog post I only managed to write about the cream, but you must come back and read my next posts. I will be writing about the Royal Epigen P5 Perfection Concentrate. And that is one fantastic product. Everything about it is pure luxury. From the royal jelly color and it’s fresh scent of Spring to the super smooth application. I’ve tried nothing like it. You are going to love reading about it.
Till next time, Milu
