Skintensive is a skincare line created by two Harvard trained dermatologists. It uses natural, ethically produced ingredients for results you can see. The formulas are designed form maturing skin, but of course work on all types. They believe “nature is our inspiration and science is our guide”.  I have been using the Bruise & Scar Cream. It is designed to help with bruises and scars especially post procedure. The power ingredients are Arnica Montana (anti-inflammatory), Vitamin K (bruise healling/collagen forming), Coconut Oil(anti inflammatory/hydrating/soothing)and Vitamin E.  I have been testing it on a scar and it has definitely sped up the healing time. So get intense on your scars with Skintensive, because no one needs to know you had a procedure or are just a clutz ;)…

can be yours with Lernberger Stafsing skin and haircare. The Line is created by celebrity Hair and Makeup pro’s- Patrick Lernberger and Mattias Stafsing. The company was founded upon the belief that “you are considerably more fantastic, remarkable and exciting than you generally show.” The products are simple and sustainable. I have been using their Night Cream It moisturizes and boosts collagen for smoother revitalized skin. It uses Retinol, Hyaluronic Acid, Niacinamide, and Evening primrose to soften and perfect.  Keep things simple yet effective with Lernberger Stafsing. 

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…

and be good your skin, with Beyou Skincare. The entire brand is built around “self-love and empowering ambitious people to be themselve”. A part of the proceeds from every order goes towards funding women’s education in underrepresented industries.  The line is clean, cruelty free, paraben free, and phthalate free, and helps protect from blue light damage. I have been loving their Caffeine Eye Cream. It is fast absorbing and designed to firm and brighten the eye area. It uses Hyaluronic Acid tot hydrate, and caffeine to revive and illuminate the eye area. It is great for all skin types. So get and give with Beyou Skincare, no one needs to know how late you went to sleep ;)….

and you should too. Attitude is an eco conscious, sustainable, skincare and homecare company. For every product you buy of their’s they plant a tree. I have been using a few of their body lotions. My favorite is the Intense Nourishing Body Lotion. It is designed to hydrate and protect skin to leave it balanced and strengthened. The star ingredient is Avocado Oil. It is blended with anti inflammatory, calming oatmeal & fatty acids. The moisturizer is lightweight and absorbs fast. It’s free of all the bad things, and loaded with the good. So get soft skin with Attitude, and show it off …….:)

advanced skincare technology with the Nira Skincare Laser. It takes just 2 minutes a day to get the effect. It is clinically proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. There’s videos on the site and an app to help you track your progress. The way it works is by stimulating natural collagen production to plump skin and smooth wrinkles. This device is FDA cleared and safe for all skin tones. It is very to use, and if your holding it wrong it lets you know. “NIRA uses patented P3 Technology to deliver professional wrinkle reduction without the pain or redness. P3 stands for Precision Protein Promotion. This technology works by gently heating up the cells in your dermis using laser light which causes the cells some limited stress whereby they release proteins which signal the body to rejuvenate and renew the dermal area. This cellular signaling happens when the dermis is heated to greater than 39° Celsius.” I’ve only been using this tool for 30 days but I’m very happy so far. So get results with Nira, and get it at home…..

The Body Shop’s Tea Tree 3 in 1 Wash Scrub Mask is a great multitasker for your skincare shelf. You can use it as a face wash/scrub, or a mask.  It is designed to help with blemishes and excess oil. I used it as a mask and was surprised by how fresh my skin felt. It felt like I had a deep cleaning in 5 minutes. My pores were clean and my skin had a toned glow. Their organic tea tree oil is Community Trade from Kukoka Ardhini. So clean and mask your skin with this Body Shop treat, and check out the rest of their tea tree line.

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…
