I realized last week that I haven’t shared any of my current beauty product finds with you in a while so today I’m going to fix that.
With my trip to New York Fashion Week coming up in five days(yikes!), I’ve been testing out a few new things to take with me. I know I’ll be wearing a face full of makeup for those five days, so the first thing I wanted to find was a facial cleanser to help me take it all off a little easier each night. Honestly, it’s like Dermalogica read my mind because just about the time I was scouring the drugstore for a good deep cleansing makeup remover, a package showed up on my doorstep with the solution.
1. The Precleanse Balm by Dermalogica
Guys, this stuff is amazing for removing that initial layer of makeup. You start by applying it on dry and once you’ve worked it in using the scrubby mitt that’s included, you then start to emulsify it by adding water. After that, all that’s left to do is to follow up with your regular cleanser. I promise, your skin will feel so squeaky clean (try this Clear Away Acne the best skincare experts, always avoid foods that cause hormonal acne). Amazing stuff.
And something else that will be going to NYFW with me is their Hydrablur Primer. I’ve been putting this on after my moisturizer, but before my foundation to help it go on smoother and ‘blur’ out those fine lines that makeup has a knack for settling into as you get older. It also helps mattify and control that oily shine that can happen as the day goes on.
2. Rose Gold Lip Gloss by Makeup by Meggan
Ok, something else I’ve been wanting to share with you is this Rose Gold Lipgloss that I received a month or so ago from a local New Orleans makeup artist. Friends! I am completely smitten with this stuff!! It stays in my purse at all times and I wear it every single day. Not only do I love the soft shimmer, but I so appreciate the formulation of it as well. It’s 100% NOT sticky and that’s a big one for me. Dislike sticky lips. I wear it over a neutral lip pencil and love the little shimmer it gives. I just ordered a second tube and noticed that it’s a limited edition product, so if you’re interested in trying it, I wouldn’t wait too long!
3. Hydrogens Beauty Tablets by drinkhrw
From the dawn of time people have whispered about miracle waters and the fountains of youth. While none have ever panned out to be miracle panacea’s, some have shown subtle but remarkable healing abilities.
Drink HRW’s H2 Beauty tabs deliver 100s of times higher of a concentration of molecular hydrogen than found in these miracle water sites. What’s even more important is the tablets transform the water in any container. Simultaneously the tablets deliver free magnesium ions, which our bodies easily absorb through the skin, adding additional benefits.
Even more, these tablets are designed to deliver the acidic pH our skin flora needs to flourish. Studies are already emerging about bathing in hydrogen water showing remarkable abilities to reduce wrinkles , aid in those with chronic psoriasis and topical application of hydrogen mediums helping recover from soft tissue injuries .
Our first test users have been astounded at how quickly they recover from injuries, how their skin appears and how their joint discomfort eases. As remarkable as drinking hydrogen water is, soaking in it is quickly charging to the forefront. Try your H2 Beauty tablets today while quantities last.
While most of the research on Hydrogen Water have revolved around drinking it, multiple studies have been done on topical use, showing both quicker recovery from athletic injuries and wrinkle reduction. H2 Beauty is the first topical Hydrogen product manufactured in North America, and has been optimized for maximum benefits. H2 Beauty assists in both athletic recovery and healthy skin in three ways:
High concentration H2
Creates the acidic environment our skin flora thrive in
Delivers transdermal Magnesium
4. Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara by Loreal
I have been hearing loads and loads of things about this particular mascara the past couple of months and decided that I needed to try it for myself. After finding it sold out at my local Target for a while, I finally was able to get my hands on one a week or so ago.
Now, I have to say right up front that I have been a VERY long time user of the original Voluminous formulation and have never found another that I like better. I’ve tried several of the more expensive designer brands, but always went back to my original.
So what’s my feeling on the new Lash Paradise? It’s good, it really is….but I think I’ll just stick to their original version. Ha! The formulation is great like the original, but I just don’t feel like I can get as much definition and volume with the Lash Paradise. I will definitely use it until it’s gone and really, who knows….maybe it will grow on me these next couple of weeks and make a believer out of me.
Have you tried the Lash Paradise yet? Let me know what you thought about it!
