Everyone loves Glow Recipe, because the brand is high quality, and fun! At Glow Recipe they believe “what’s not in the formula is just as important as what is.” The entire line is clean, cruelty free, free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. I have been using their Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask. It uses encapsulated retinol, coffeeberry, and niacinamide to moisturize, brighten, de-puff and fight fine lines. The use of encapsulated retinol allows less irritation for the delicate eye area. It releases slowly so the benefits work longer. You can use it during the day, but you must layer sunscreen over it. I notice an instant brightening when I apply it. This rich creamy lotion feels luxurious, not heavy. So put on some Avocado Melt, and get more out of your bedtime ;)….

I usually like full coverage, matte, foundation. When I want to go a step less than full, with a little luminosity I use Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Aqua Foundation. It is stated to give a right after facial glow, and I think that is the perfect description. It uses light diffusing minerals to brighten and minimize pores while resisting oiliness. It is very lightweight and breathable. It contains lots of good for you ingredients to improve your skins texture and health. So lighten up your foundation this summer with Koh Gen Do, and take something off….

Refresh-2

It’s small batch when it comes to Lone Star Botanicals. They ethically source the best herbs and spices from Organic farms all over the world. I have gotten into using their face scrubs and face masks this winter, and had great results. The Refresh Hydrating Green Tea Face Scrub exfoliates, hydrates, and brightens your skin. Soothe Moisturizing Shea Butter Pumice face Scrub moisturizes and smooths skin. I rarely like scrubs, because I find them to be too harsh. These allowed for a gentle, yet effective cleaning. I like all their Masks, though the Renew Rejuvenating Herbal Clay Mask was my favorite. It gave me a brighter, more awake looking complexion. So try out Lone Star botanicals, and get big results with just a little….

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…
