new beauty finds. Here’s what I’m getting into this month…. I found a great, fast working, hair mask from Pureology. 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. 

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.

about Buzios? Buzios skincare is a Brazilian line that is all about the glow. They believe in a 2 step skincare ritual for plumped dewy akin. Step 1 is a cleansing, detoxifying, exfoliating cream. Step 2 is a hydrating, moisturizing all over serum.  I have been using their cleanser, Bare Skin. For me I like it as my first step in my double cleanse routine. Therefore I use it a bit differently than directed. It has natural retinol, antioxidants, and 5 amazonian super foods in it. I love how it removes dirt and makeup while leaving my skin enriched. You can remove it with a cotton pad or damp microfiber towel. So get that Brazilian beauty glow, and go bare….

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….

with Dior Backstage. I’m obsessed with their Lip Glow Colour awakening hydrating lip balm. It is a universal balm inspired by the expert techniques from backstage at Dior. It combines the comfort of a balm with a natural flush of color. This makeup meets lip care uses their famous “Color Reviver” technology. This reacts to the unique chemistry of each person’s lips. It’s very cool to see. I shared it with my friend and her color was completely different. The softness comes from mango butter and is said to hydrate for 24 hours. You’ll love the look and feel. So get with Dior Lip Glow, and let your lips leave a little colour behind ;)…

It uses rich amazonian murumuru butter, bulgarian rose oil, and Organic Coconut Oil for a hydrating clean. All Love Beauty and Planet products are ethically sourced, cruelty free, phthalates free, vegan and sulfate free. It lathers well, and smells great. So do good for yourself and the planet while you pamper.

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…
