Gisele Bündchen’s “Top Must Haves” Includes Dr. Alkaitis Organic Eye Cream

Just because a celeb deems it great, doesn’t make it so. Afterall, they are paid big bucks to toute product they don’t really use. However in this case, I totally agree with her and doubt she is getting a dime to sing this product’s praises.  Dr. Alkaitis is a celebrity favorite and for good reason.  When I had the great pleasure of speaking with him last October, I asked him about celebrities using his products:
Q: “Is it true that celebrities use your products?”
A: “Yes, many of them do. They are paid to endorse other products but they use mine because they’re effective and they can’t afford not to have beautiful skin in their line of work.”

 Gisele had this to say in the January ’09 issue of InStyle magazine about Dr. Alkaitis Eye Cream:

“I love organic products. This cream is so natural you can it eat!”

Mostly used in spas, holistic clinics, by estheticians, celebrity makeup artists, and lauched in the UK last year, this line has received rave reviews and for good reason. As a chemist, molecular biologist, ethnopharmacologist (someone who has studied the traditional ways of healing mainly with plants) and pharmacognosist (someone who has studied the medicinal properties of plants), Dr. Alkaitis combines his vast scientific knowledge of plants with a holistic way of healing the skin to create a truly potent line of products. All products are made in-house, including the extracts, and are all formulated and manufactured by Dr. Alkaitis. They’re biologically active, made from raw, organic ingredients with a base of organic aloe vera, not water (like most lines). And products are no more than 2 weeks old when shipped.

This product smells delish and feels cool under and around the eyes.  Find it for $49 at: www.alkaitis.com.  (All the products are extremely concentrated so a little goes a long way).

  1. I am a HUGE fan of Dr. Alkaitis. My favorites are the cleanser and the day cream. Still don’t look like Gisele though… ; )

  2. Hi Sarah!

    I too love the Cleanser and Day Cream. And I’m amazed at how the Nourishing Treatment Oil can clear up blemishes overnight! I don’t look like Gisele either 😉

  3. I’ve never tried the oil. Will have to order some. I’m lucky enough to work for an organic beauty website so I get the hook up. lol.

    Loving your blog!

  4. The Vitamin Enhanced Moisturizer is a staple in my beauty regiment. Its from the Made from Earth skin careline. I didn’t used to believe in creams and other things to make my skin look younger, but a girlfriend of mine talked me into using some of the Made from Earth line – and since its organic and chemical free and I am a super healthy woman, I thought I would try it.

    I tried it just to try to prove her wrong, but thankfully, I was the one who was wrong! This cream is a lifesaver! Eventhough it’s a little expensive, it goes a long way and is well worth the money – 1 bottle lasted me 3 months. My skin is so much firmer and fresher looking. My skin doesn’t look tired and worn out anymore, but instead I look refreshed and YOUNG! I can’t live without it now! Recommendend for healthy women looking for younger skin, who dont want to put harsh chemicals on their facial skin.
