new beauty finds. Here’s what I’m getting into this month…. I found a great, fast working, hair mask from Purology. It’s their Strength Cure Superfood Treatment. It’s a fortifying mask designed to strengthen and smooth split ends while preventing further damage. It uses Olive Oil, Goji Berry, and their signature aromatherapy blend. I’ve never had a bad experience with Purology and this mask does not disappoint.

For my skin I’m using Peach & Lilly’s Wild Dew Treatment Essence. This hydrating post cleansing step will improve skin’s radiance while fighting acne. It sinks deep into skin fast, to leave your face ready to drink up your next step. It contains lotus extract, niacinamide, yeast ferment, adenosine, bamboo extract, and radish leaf. It is refreshing and effective.

My latest makeup additon is Essence’s Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara. I love how small the brush is small to get the perfect application. It has tiny fibers to fill in caps and create fuller more tamed defined brows. 

soft lips are easy to attain with Tree Hut’s Sugarlips Sweet Mint Lip Scrub. I’m very picky about lip scrubs. I find they often don’t have the right percentage of scrubber vs oil. This one- is one of the best I have ever tried. It quickly exfoliates your lips while softening and hydrating skin. It uses Indian Peppermint Oil which has a natural plumping effect. As well as Shea Butter and Jojoba Seed Oil to hydrate, condition and protect. So get with Tree Hut and put that mouth to good use….;)

I’m telling you to get into this entire line. If you want soft hair, this is your answer. I recently discovered the line Oi by Davines at my last hair appointment. My stylist used it on me and I had to call her later to get the details. I was touching my hair all day. I couldn’t believe how soft and light it felt. I’ve always loved Davines products and this line hits it out of the park.  “The name OI comes from the ancient Eastern idea of harmony through the balance of opposite forces. In an effort to create balance between the senses, mulitple benefits and effectiveness, OI lets you see immediate positive results from your first use.” The power ingredient is Roucou oil, which gives major shine and softness, as well as protection from environmental damage. The Shampoo and Conditioner are luxurious. My favorites are the Lightweight Oi All in one Milk and the Multi-function Oil. They detangle, control frizz, and protect from heat. So try out Oi from Davines but don’t get freaked out if everyone starts playing with your hair…..

It’s time for your products to do more. I love to exfoliate while in the shower, but I love a body wash that lathers. I used to have to choose. Not anymore! Thanks to Prismologie and their Ruby & Cedarwood Foaming Body Scrub. This sustainable, luxurious brand is one you need to get to know. They believe in the impact of color and scent, and it resides throughout their product line. The foaming scrub cleanses while exfoliating with micro-crystals. Sugar Beet and Coconut Extracts moisturize and soften while Mineral rich Vocanic Spring Powder buffs the skin. The Cherry Stone Powder and Pomegranate Enzymes give a deep exfoliation. So get more out of your products with Prismologie, and take full advantage of that shower time…

are you taking care of your scalp? I hope so, good hair starts at the follicle. I am loving May11’s Purifying Scalp Oil, and I think you will too. May11 is a clean & organic haircare line, designed to support healthy hair growth. The Scalp oil is a detoxifying treatment made from Evening Primrose Oil, Castor Oil, and essential oils. It cleanses impurities, calms inflammation, and improves the overall condition of your scalp. I also love their Revitalizing Hair Oil. It uses four high grade oils to support healthy hair growth. It protects and nourishes your strands while enhancing the overall appearance. The May11 packaging and website provides many uses for how best to use these products. I like to use them as a before bed treatment to wake up with healthier hair. So get with May11’s luxurious oils and see why those in the beauty know are all fans…

Defiance Science Duo: Theorem Serum Boost + Triple Lift Molecule Mask Image 1

Caire for your skin like I do. I am using Caire Skincare’s Triple Lift Molecule Mask and Theorem Serum weekly. The Caire line is designed for women 40+ and sets out to fight the hormonal changes that happen to your skin. The Lift Molecule Mask is an effective, hydrating and healing powerhouse. It uses Hyaluronic Acid, and Hyaluronic Growth factor that is “turbo-charged through our unique delivery mechanism”. You apply the mask and leave it for 15-30 minutes. It tightens as it dries. After removal follow with their Theorem Serum. It deeply absorbs into skin and provides long term effects. I suggest heading over to their site to read all about the science and results. So get lifted and hydrated with Caire, and bring back that youthful glow. 

3 steps to be exact. I’m crazy about Naisture’s 3 step skincare kits. These are perfect for travel, an overnight, or any evening you want to pamper. I have used both the Exfoliating and Recharging lines. The exfoliating one comes with a cleanser, a peeling pad, and sleeping mask moisturizer.  The cleanser deep cleans, the peeling pad uses AHA’s, Tiger Cica Extract, and Blueberry Extract to remove dead skin and any left over grime. The sleeping mask plumps and nourishes to get you ready for your glow up by morning. The Recharging packet has a cleanser, sheet mask, and moisturizer. The cleanser uses Rice, Grapefruit, and Licorice Extracts. The sheet mask has cactus, Tiger Cica, and Honey Extract. They Hydro Moisturizer deeply moisturizes with Allantoin, Camellia Extract and Pine tree extract. So get with Naisture’s 3 step kits for better skin, by tomorrow.

This month I have discovered two cleansers that are instant favorites. I was impressed with both on first use, and will continue to buy them both. I am crazy about Indie Lee’s Brightening Cleanser. This gentle, foaming, cleanser completely removes makeup and dirt without drying out your skin. It is made with Strawberry Seed Oil, hydrolyzed wheat protein and Tomato extracts. You can leave it on for 5 minutes to use as an exfoliating mask. Skin is left brightened and softened. I am a huge fan of this brand in general. Every product is made from high quality ingredients that blend the best of nature and Science. The second cleanser I’ve gone crazy for is Bare Minerals Pure Plush Gentle Deep Cleansing Foam. Just a pea sized amount provides enough lather to deep clean your entire face. It uses mineral rich sea salts, rosemary, and elderflower to brighten and refine skin. This cleanser even removes my eyemakeup. Both of these brands deliver instant results. So get dirty, to get clean again…

because they look amazing and are soft and shiny. My new favorite lip products is Locked & Lit from Smith & Cult. It’s a CBD lip balm gives the most perfect, natural, shine and look. It uses hemp derived CBD to soothe and protect. Coconut derived MCT oil provides intense hydration. I have the clear, which is green in the jar, and it gives the most perfect natural lip color boost. I love how long it lasts, as apposed to many balms that seem to dissipate in minutes. So pucker up for Smith & Cult and make your lips luscious…

with some new faves. Lets start with skincare. I’m loving Algenist Skincare’s AA Barrier Serum. This antioxidant rich serum is designed to defent the skin barrier against pollutants and environmental aggressors. It uses Alguronic Acid, Niacinamide, Phloretin, and Ergothioneine. It improves skins appearance and uneveness. I love the texture of it. It feels luxurious and absorbs well.

My new makeup finds start with a cult favorite foundation. I now understand why Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Foundation is so popular. This 24 hour wear, full coverage, Matte foundation really delivers. It leaves skin looking fresh and flawless yet somehow remains lightweight on the skin. It is heat resistant, and waterproof. There are over 55 shades to choose from.

Taking things to the ever important brows. For the last few years I’ve stuck with NYX’s micro brow pencil. I think it’s better than its expensive competitors. I’m now following it with their Control Freak Eyebrow Gel. It is a clear gel that tames brows and gives a fuller effect. It’s not sticky and stays comfortable all day. So play with some new finds for 2021, I won’t tell last year’s products you’re cheating 😉
