Fleur’s Silky Cleansing Cream You know those skin care commercials that try to position their product as a spa experience? Well this cleansing cream, with Magnolia extract, takes you to a land of scented candles and warm baths. Magnolia is known for its softening, astringent, and invigorating properties. After cleansing, skin is soft, subtle, and has an alluring scent.
Marula Oil Though it seems Argan Oil is all the rage, we can’t get enough of Marula Oil. It has more antioxidants than Argan Oil or Grape Seed Oil. Due to its high levels of oleic (omega-9 acid at 60-70% concentrations) it easily penetrates the skin and provides longer lasting hydration.We love it for overall hydration, but it can also be used for sunburns!
Colbert M.D. Intensify Facial Discs These are fancy discs are great for travel. The microdermabrasion and enzyme action increases surface cell turnover. This promotes new collagen production which keeps your skin looking young. The reason we love these facial discs is because they are no-mess and no-fuss, and high quality.
Lierac Micro-Abrasion This is an deep exfoliating treatment that can be used once a week. Through crystals and hydrating Urea, the mixtures works with your skin to prevent and correct the appearance of visible signs of skin aging (loss of radiance and tonicity, fine lines, dehydration), and this is the micro-abrasion to get the job done.
Peter Thomas Roth Botanical Buffing Beads This gentle, non-abrasive scrub for daily use. The mix contains soft, ultra-fine jojoba beads and botanical nutrients that work in two ways. First, they help exfoliate surface dead skin cells, allowing active treatment products and moisturizers to penetrate better. Then, the ultra-fine jojoba beads help open clogged pores and emulsify the sebum that contributes to blackheads and whiteheads.
Oscar Blandi Volumizing Dry Shampoo Miracles do happen, because Oscar Blandi created the perfect dry shampoo. This is an essential for any beauty artillery. For days you want to snooze an extra 30 minutes, or need to go out after the gym, just spray some against your roots and massage through your hair.
Kerastase Aqua Seal Do you have nightmares of not being able to tame your freezy hair during a humid day? This silky hair cream will shield your hair from environmental disaster. We’ve tested it in the rain, in the tropics, and on the most humid party night in Miami; Keratese walked away with our seal of approval (pun intended).
Buxom Lash Mascara This mascara will elongate and thicken your lashes without irritating your eyes. Use one coat for a natural look, or two coats to go glam, and your eyes will completely open up. Also, unlike similar competitors, this bottle will not dry out and one container will go a long way.
bareMinerals Foundation It’s hard to feel guilty, when your foundation is made of “minerals”. The company recently launched a new shade, “Golden Tan”, which compliments many South Asian skin tones. Since the foundation is light, its easy to put on just a little for a sheer cover, or a few layers for a more polished finish.
Phytomer Micellar Water Eye Make Up Remover This solution is so gentle that even sensitive eyes can use it. The ingredients are straight forward. Micelles act like a magnet to trap makeup particles, so no need to rub the skin. OLIGOMER® (fancy) delivers an optimum dose of trace elements and minerals, which fortifies the epidermis and prevents cellular fatigue. This liquid magic will make you never want to rub your eyes with the over-the-counter oily gunk.
