My Beauty Faves Week of February 16-22, 2015

I have been watching the Oscars, and all of the ladies look gorgeous! It is important to choose great skincare, makeup, nail care and fragrances to pull of glam – and everyday – looks.

This week I am loving a fab skincare and foundation set, skincare for my nails and a fresh fragrance:

Glossier Phase 1 Set

Glossier Phase 1 Set

Glossier Phase 1 Set ($80 USD) — Glossier is resetting the beauty game, starting with the most important thing: a perfectly primed canvas. This is skincare as makeup—a mist, moisturizer, balm, and tint, designed to work together to perfect (not conceal!) skin while requiring minimal effort on your end. All you need are your fingertips.

Products included from left to right in photo (and my opinion of them) are:

Perfecting Skin Tint: This light foundation evens out discoloration and leaves your face looking toned, smooth, and dewy. The breathable, ultra thin formula auto-fits to skin, making application as simple as throwing on moisturizer. It is very sheer, like a liquid, but you can build it to a medium coverage.  I like it, but it is a bit sheer for me (I need my coverage).  I think it is perfect for those who want to showcase their good skin.  Comes in three shades.

Balm Dotcom: A hydrating, long-lasting, do-everything skin salve that’s packed with antioxidants and natural emollients to nourish and repair dry, irritated skin. The dense, waxy texture stays in place to seal in moisture wherever it goes. I like to use this on my cuticles and as a lip and face balm when it is very cold out.

Soothing Face Mist: This spritz is made with roses and aloe to hydrate, soothe, and leave you feeling fresh and awake, prepping your skin for the Priming Moisturizer. Also excellent as a makeup refresher and midday pick-me-up.  I love the sweet, floral scent and how refreshing it is.  I loving using this facial spray before my moisturizer as it hydrates my skin.

Priming Moisturizer: This moisturizes, creates an even texture and helps with redness. This comforting cream allows you to layer and build up to the perfect amount of moisture depending on climate, season, or how your skin’s feeling on any given day. I like how moisturizing this is.  It is more of a moisturizer than a primer, but it does help even out skin, getting it ready for foundation.

Love2Love

Love2Love

Love2Love Jasmine and Sparkling Mimosa ($9.98 USD) — Inspired by a spectrum of colors that express a woman’s joy and sheer happiness, each scent speaks to the woman who loves the idea of being in love. These four fragrances were designed the capture a stylish duo of ingredients that reflect perfect pairs in love:

 

  • LOVE2LOVE Fresh Rose + Peach: This luscious scent opens with juicy notes of pear nectar and fresh caccis buds, evoking joy and optimism. Bulgarian rose oil infused with geranium infuses innocence and femininity, while musk and orris blend at the base bringing a dose of comforting warmth and tenderness to the fragrance.
  • LOVE2LOVE Jasmine + Sparkling Mimosa: Lighthearted and fresh, this fragrance represents the spirit of a radiant, carefree woman. The youthful and energetic blend of dewy peony and sparkling mimosa mingles with intoxicating jasmine and sweet pea join with warm rosewood and almond blossom at the base to wrap you in a veil of sensuality.
  • LOVE2LOVE Freesia + Violet Petals: Timeless and alluring, this scent begins with a sweet mix of peach blossom and lavender blooms then give way to feminine heart notes of freesia and violet blossom. The base notes of sheer musk and cedar wood emerge spontaneously.
  • LOVE2LOVE Orange Blossom + White Musk: A refreshing cocktail of sparkling bergamot and juicy orange notes opens this fragrance, followed by soft peony at the heart to create a feminine element. The trace of orris and white musk add a sensual aspect to the fragrance.

I have a sample of this in the Jasmine and Sparkling Mimosa scent.  It is fresh and sweet, like juicy fruit — a perfect spring scent.  And, it is light so you can spritz it on the body, or in your hair.  Very nice and so affordable!

Available at Walmart and Walmart.com

 

Review and Giveaway — L’Occitane 28 Day Divine Renewal Program

L'Occitane 28 Day Divine Renewal Program

L’Occitane 28 Day Divine Renewal Program

I have just finished a new skin care regimine from L’Occitane called the Divine Renewal Program ($130 for 28 treatments) that launches today on usa.loccitane.com. It contains organic immortelle essential oil and it acts in 4 steps, specifically developed to work in tune with the skin renewal cycle. The product is used for 28 days; 4 formulas in 4 weeks to enhance overworked skin’s natural ability to regenerate.

Below is info on the 4 weeks of treatment.  At the bottom is info on the giveaway (yay!).

• Week 1- Gentle Exfoliation: Pistacia lentiscus or “Mastic Tree” essential oil acts as a gentle exfoliator by encouraging the natural shedding process of the skin, leaving the skin feeling more soft and smooth.

• Week 2- Hydration & Nutrition: A unique blend of 4 vegetable oils, combined with cistus essential oil, help nourish and hydrate skin.

• Week 3- Balance: Myrtle and Rosemary essential oils, with rebalancing properties, contribute to the overall well-being of the skin.

• Week 4- Renewal: Carrot, Cypress and Immortelle essential oils provide a solution to the visible signs of aging for a glowing complexion.

What I think:  This is such an interesting idea for treating aging skin.  When I opened the box and saw the 4 rows of individual capsules, I noticed that they seemed all the same.  But, as I used each daily treatment, I could see different results to my skin each week.

My skin is very sensitive, so the first week was a bit hard on my skin, so I just used half a treatment each day.  But, by the second week, my skin seemed smoother and was happy to get to the hydration week!  By my last week of treatment, my skin tone was more even and my fine lines and wrinkles were definitely less noticeable!  This is really a great system!

So, do you want to win this fabulous system for yourself???  Leave a comment letting me know why you think this would be great for your skin!  I will choose a winner on Sunday March 1st.  US residents only please.  Good Luck!
