How long have you been using Repêchage?
I’ve been using Repêchage skin care for 2.5 years and do notice my skin appears brighter and my overall skin texture is smoother and more refreshed!
What concerns have Repêchage products addressed?
Visible signs of aging, the appearance of hyperpigmention and my menopausal skin.
I believe there are three areas that need to be addressed in skin care: protection, prevention & correction. Using Repechage has helped me with all three.
What have the results been for clients since using Repêchage?
Their skin appears brighter, smoother and their eyes look more refreshed. Clients have also expressed that their skin feels more hydrated and protected from the environment and free radicals.

What are the most common skin concerns you see amongst clients, and how do you help with these concerns?
Visible signs of aging, the appearance of hyperpigmentation and eye area concerns!
The following products are a must for clients with these concerns:
- C-Serum Seaweed Filtrate
- Rapidex Marine Exfoliator
- Mineral Face Shield
- Vita Cura Opti-Lift Serum (for the eye area)
(C-Serum Seaweed Filtrate is one of the most popular products at Salon CoCoBond and Celina’s favorite product for multi-tasking)
What do you tell your clients is the MOST important step in their skin care routine and why?
I am a big advocate of a product that multi-tasks. C-Serum Seaweed Filtrate is one that does just that with its ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines, hydrate the skin, and protect from the visible signs of environmental aggressors.
For clients who just can’t commit to a full skin care routine, I always recommend they at least _____.
I was always taught that 80% of what we look like is due to our exposure to the sun and environment.
So I will always preach PROTECT your skin.
Protection is key to prevent visible signs of premature aging, skin dehydration, and the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
What are your top 3 skin care tips for clients?
- Protect your skin from the environment daily, not just when you think you’re going to be in the sun.
- Exfoliate. We all have many dead layers of skin that need help coming off.
- Hydrate your skin.
What are your top health and wellness tips for clients?
Lifestyle will affect how your skin looks:
- Drink lots of water because skin is our largest organ and needs the hydration to replenish.
- Exercise! It is proven that sweating is very beneficial for removing impurities from the pores of skin.
- Watch your alcohol intake. It is very dehydrating and causes premature aging.
- Do not smoke!
- Last, but not least, a daily skin care routine is of the upmost importance.
