with Fountain of Truth age defying, clean beauty line. The line uses a Super Bio-Ferment Complex, which is their way of using effective fermented botanical ingredients. Fermented ingredients can be broken down into smaller molecules which can better penetrate the skin. Fountain of Truth was created by Giuliana Rancic after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She wanted a completely clean line that would also effectively fight aging and other skin concerns. I received three of their products from influenster. I love the skin nutrition booster kit. It comes with three facial serums to treat your needs. B: Bright is for an outer glow and uses vitamin c, B: Hydrated is full of hydrating ingredients for softness, and B: Calm is to soothe stressed skin. I also love the Magic Wand Sculpting Eye Roller. It is a weightless eye cream that uses probiotic derived ingredients, caffeine, and green tea. The wand has cooling rollerballs to stimulate circulation. The Fresh Face Foaming cleanser will remove makeup and dirt, while keeping skin soft.  You can find the line at Ulta. So get with Fountain of Truth and let the magic of clean beauty be your truth…

p50_1970-new_1
I have been hearing about the miracles of P50 for years. I finally got a bottle of Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 Original 1970, and I’m hooked. This is the only product I’ve found to completely remove my blackheads and shrink my prores. I’m not going to go deep on the details of this product, as there are better places to get the specifics. I highly recommend listening to the breaking beauty podcast about it. In a nutshell, it is a acid toner-like product, that exfoliates, hydrates, and balances the skin. It is very strong, so if you have sensitive skin you should use their milder versions. I recommend buying this on the Rescue Spa site. It is likely you will get a fake if you find it somewhere else. It is not cheap, but it definitely works. So get with P50 and change your skin, which will basically change your life ;)…

I have been using Heir Atelier Primer for face, eyes, and lips. They call their primers the “anti-primers” because they do not work like others. Other primers can be heavy and sit on the surface of skin as well as being full of silicones. Heir Atelier considers their primers to be skincare. They are designed to moisturize and nourish skin, while creating a smooth canvas. The line is lightweight and keeps makeup in its place. The eye primer is a peach tint and absorbs oil to lock your look in place. The face primer is the perfect demi-matte, and the lip primer is ultra conditioning. So lock your look in place, and get going…
