Happy Friday, Pretties! Here’s what I happened across this week in the beauty trenches…
1) Joanna Vargas Skincare
I received the Joanna Vargas skincare collection including Daily Serum, Rejuvenating Serum and Vitamin C Face Wash. Priced at $65 and up, the collection is not cheap, but when it comes to skin care, cheap isn’t necessarily the way to go. I’m loving the Vitamin C Wash, chock full of powerful antioxidants including Acai and Goji berry plus a proprietary blend of citrus oils to revitalize skin. I’m an oily-skinned girl and this cleanser does not induce break-outs but truly leaves skin glowing. Expect to see this one featured in one on my “love it” columns down the road.
2) La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra
You gotta love a product designed for “intolerant skin.” I’m not sure if that’s my skin but some days, I certainly feel like my complexion is intolerable. After trying the new Clear + Brilliant Laser Treatment at Spa Derma (more on that to come), I was introduced to Toleriane Ultra thanks to the charming Lloyd from Spa Derma. Ideal for my sensitive post-laser skin, this intensely hydrating product soothes sensitive and allergic skin. Neurosensine is the active ingredient in Toleriane Ultra and it promises to target and soothe skin irritation. Post-laser I can attest it truly works. Get it for about $35 at local medical spas.
3) MUD Lip Glaze
Make-up Designory continues to thrill with top-notch products that truly deliver. Their mascara is one of my absolute favorites and this week I tried their Lip Glaze ($12) for a Best and Worst Lip Gloss story in progress. Smooth, not sticky, Lip Glaze serves up a splash of color in a squeezable tube. I have it in “Cupid” which looks very hot pink on the Make-up Designory site but is actually a perfect apricot in person.
4) Shiseido Shimmering Rouge, Mango 316
Not only is this hue the most wearable way I’ve found to sport orange lips, I also love the consistency of Shiseido’s Shimmering Rouge ($25). One of the newest hues, Mango, didn’t disappoint with its sheer color and lasting formula. I’ll be featuring this product in an upcoming color story. Love it!
