MEL-001-main
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…

Pai Skincare is made in London and my Miami skin can not get enough of it! The line is created for sensitive skin, but benefits all types. Their Light Work Rosehip Cleansing Oil is quickly becoming one of my favorite oil cleansers. It removes all makeup, with no eye irritation. I love that when you rinse it off there is no oil residue left on the skin. I follow that with the Rice Plant & Rosemary BioAffinity Tonic. It refreshes and rebalances skin and brings it to the correct pH. It is rich in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Then comes the amazing Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil. This oil gives your skin an immediate glow. Andean Rosehip oil is rich in Omegas 3,6,7, & 9. It has antioxidant carotenoids to repair and protect skin. This oil is “packed with twice the regenrative sterols and five times more carotenoids than your average cold pressed rosehip seed oil” So try out Pai products, and don’t be so sensitive ;)….

about my skincare. That’s why I’m using Exuviance AF Vitamin C 20% Serum Capsules. These capsules are designed to brighten your skin while restoring tone and firmness. 20% is a serious dose of Vitamin C. You feel a warming sensation when you apply it, to me that means it’s good! The single use capsules are the ultimate way to protect product from air, light, and water. It is a powerful serum used alone, or layer with other products for extra benefits. These capsules are great for when you’re traveling. So get serious AF about your skincare with Exuviance, and get silly with everyone else…

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 ;)…

of Korean beauty! If you are to, head over to Mistetic.com and go crazy. Right now I’m using their Toun28  Organic B+ spf 50 sun/bluelight block. This is a physical (non-nano) UVA/UVB sun + HEV blue rays (Smartphone, TV, Computer screens) block cream. It is made with up to 62% certified organic, SPF 50+PA+++. It is water and sweat resistant. The fully recyclable packaging is an important upgrade to this category. I also use the Cos De Baha NiacinAmide Serum 10% with Zinc PCA. The serum contains 10% Niacinamide with 1% Zinc, it dramatically improves uneven skin tone, refines skin texture and improves fine lines. It has an overall brightening effect, and is effective against acne. It is designed to help improve the epidermal barrier of your skin. When that is in peak condition, everything is flawless.  So get with the goods our sisters in Korea have been crazy about forever. Head over to Mistetic and shop away your worries…..

Loreal Paris’s Revitalift line has launched it’s Derm Intensives collection. It’s a collection of carefully curated products containing the highest concentrations of  active ingredients, at an affordable price. I have been using the 10% Pure Vitamin C Serum. I love the lux feeling of this product. I feel it working right when I put it on. It restores radiance, clarity, and tone. This serum is formulated without water in an airtight tube to maximize potency and stability. It has a velvety soft feel, and delivers results. I think this Vitamin C is as good as the expensive ones that have a cult following. So get with Derm Intensives, and save the overpriced products for your closet

and you should too! Sunday Riley’s Good Genes All in One Lactic Acid Treatment. This serum means business. You feel it working right when you put it on. It is strong, so I would not recommend to those with sensitive skin. The Purified Lactic Acid is hydrating and exfoliating. Your skin is left clarified, refreshed, and smoother. It helps fight build up of dead skin cells and excess sebum. There is also licorice for brightening, lemongrass to tone, and arnica to soothe. This is a cult favorite and I can see why. So get Good Genes, even if you weren’t born with them…

clear and calm skin. It’s easy thanks to Flora + Bast. They are “founded on the belief that skincare and beauty is a lifestyle decision, and that natural products designed, preserved and delivered properly outperform any synthetic product.” Why all the hype about cannabis? Cannabinoids balance over and under production of oil. Cannabinoids regulate apoptosis (programmed cell death) to ensure that skin cells die if and when they are not functioning optimally, allowing new cells to take their place. At night I’ve been using their Age Adapting Facial Serum and Age Adapting Sleep Tincture. The serum balances your endocannabinoid system. So your skin can repair itself naturally. It is rich in phytocannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and fatty acids. The formula is free of water, preservatives, and fillers. The Sleep Tincture works by regulating sleep-wake cycles.  When taken before bed, you should fall asleep faster with greater ease, stay asleep longer, and wake up more refreshed. I have noticed these benefits myself. You know you already love Cannabis, now let it into your skincare routine…
