you get to know this brand. Kovo Essentials! This Clean line uses Probiotics and Cannabinoids to restore clarity and radiance to your skin, while fighting the age and environmental damage. The products have the highest level of potency to work quickly and effectively.  The Cannabidiol Oil is derived from Hemp. It soothes irritation and counteracts free radical damage. The Probiotics balance the flora of the skin and provide antibacterial benefits. I have been using the Illuminating Booster Serum 33. It quickly hydrates my skin and improves the overall appearance. It has 500 mg of Broad Spectrum CBD that gives a dewy glow. It also uses Arnica to stimulate cell turnover and fight inflammation. The serum feels luxurious, and substantial. So up your skincare game with Kovo, and keep it natural, but keep it good…

is now a good thing when it comes to skincare. Thanks to Typology and their innovative no b.s. all results approach. The line is sold exclusively online, direct to consumers, in order to offer the highest quality at the best price. The line is like a chic french apothecary meets the Ordinary….but better. “Our philosophy is not to add anything to our products to make them stand out; instead we pare them back and distil each formula down to the most-essential, natural active ingredients.” The line is natural and sourced from sustainable farms using gentle extraction techniques. I will touch on a few of my faves from the line, but I strongly suggest checking out all they have to offer on their site. The 7 Ingredient Micellar Water quickly removes makeup and grime. I use the Hydrolate Organic Orange Blossom, which is a gentle essence that revives tired skin. Next I use the Antioxidant Serum 3% Ferulic Acid + 3% Resveratrol, to firm skin and fight aging. I wait a minute or two and follow with the Radiance Serum 11% Vitamin C, to increase radiance. One of my favorite’s in the line is the Eye Serum 5% Caffeine + 5% Niacinamide. It’s a circulation boosting eye serum that fights dark circles. It’s extremely lightweight and absorbs instantly. I’m somewhat obsessed with the Radiance Night Serum Botanical Blend with White Rose. It is an overnight Oil that boosts radiance and regenerates skin while you sleep. It feels ultra luxurious. It is a must add to cart. The bottles are beautiful and look great out on the counter. So say oui’ to Typology, and let this French brand be your new crush…

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. 

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 😉 

whatever it is let Curology work on the cure. I am extremely happy with my skin at the moment. I have been using Curology’s face wash, customized serum, moisturizer, and body wash. It is a very simple service to use. They develop customizable serums to fight whatever your individual concerns are. The ingredients are medical grade and at your needed level. You just snap a few pics on your cell and answer some questions on their site. They use your pictures, lifestyle, and goals to create exactly what you need. If you are not satisfied with your current routine, I recommend trying this system out. So get a unique formula from Curology, because you’re not like anybody else ;)…

and approved. Not all cbd/hemp products are created equal. Kiskanu is family owned and operated. The family has worked in the cannabis industry for over 20 years. All their products are small batch, sustainable, and hand crafted. They use premium organic whole plant extracts in a base of cold pressed, virgin, organic oils. The line is lab tested and all hemp CBD is sourced within the US. “Rather than isolates or concentrates, we believe in the effectiveness of whole plant medicine to imbue healing qualities into our products that are palpable.” I love the Hemp CBD Face Oil. I use it as a serum, but it can also be used as a makeup remover or body oil. It offers major hydration, and absorbs quickly. Rose Geranium is used to soothe inflammation. The oil is anti-bacterial, antifungal, and loaded with antioxidants. So get with Kiskanu for your face, and while you’re there check out their Hemp CBD Intimacy Oil, because omg….

Beautystat is a premium quality brand I had been hearing a lot about. Their Universal C Skin Refiner is gaining a cult following. Their Vitamin C uses a patented method to stay stabilized “to the last drop”. I could tell this product was of the highest quality from first application. The texture feels luxurious and I got an immediate tingling when applied. It uses 20% Vitamin C to give immediate results. It allows skin to be softer, smoother, and more radiant. I saw an instant evenness in texture as well. Along with pure vitamin C it uses Squalane, Tartaric Acid, and EGCG (green tea active) for an all over anti aging combo. I highly recommend this product. So get with Beautystat and C the difference…

Dior Capture Totale Super Potent Age-Defying Intense Serum Image 4
Dior did just that. 20 years of research are behind their Dior Capture Totale C.E.L.L. ENERGY- Super Potent Age-Defying Intense Serum. I was gifted this product by Influenster, and didn’t know what to expect. What I loved most is that I noticed an instant plumpness and brightness. It uses Hyaluronic Acid, with a Floral Complex to fight aging, loss of firmness and enhance suppleness. The product is not cheap, but if you want a luxurious, effective serum- this is it. So get with Dior and let them do the work ;)….

your skincare. I have been using Care Skincare’s Tireless retinoid Night Serum and the Eye & Lip Nourishing Cream. Care Skincare is a clean beauty brand with safe, effective products for all skin types. Everything is non toxic, fragrance free, and never tested on animals. They sell directly to customers, and use simple packaging, in order to keep prices low. The serum smooths and brightens skin overnight. “Granactive Retinoid Combats the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while increasing elasticity for a firmer, smoother, more luminous skin texture.” The Eye & Lip Cream uses hyaluronic acid for hydration and caffeine to reduce puffiness. It also has vitamin c and peptides for overall brightenss. So feel confident and clean with Care Skincare, and let the rest of your life get dirty….

it’s because I started using Melanie Simon Serum C. Not all Vitamin C Serums are created equally. When you use a top tier one you notice the difference. The product is created by the renowned esthetician Melanie Simon. This serum is highly stabilized. It can withstand light and air exposure, unlike most C serums. The results you can expect are tightened pores, brighter skin, and improvement on fine lines. So get your glow on with Melanie and her supreme C…
