n skincare. I am confident in recommending Versed Moisture Maker Hydrating Hyalronic Serum to anyone looking to pick up a good HA. It contains Snow Mushroom and polygutamic acid. Polygutamic acid is said to hold 4 times its weight in water, and it’s bringing all that to your skin. This HA Serum has a gel like texture. A little goes a long way. The recommended amount is two drops from the dropper. You will press it into the skin, not rub in like a cream. Allow some time, around 2 minutes for it to absorb, and then follow with moisturizer. The Versed Vitamin C moisturizer goes perfectly with it. It is not sticky and does not negatively effect makeup. The price point is great for the quality it delivers. It is a 1oz bottle that seems like it would last a minimum of six months. 

U Beauty skincare. I have been using their Resurfacing Compound. This product and brand have a cult following and I can see why. This serum is designed brighten, tighten, even out, and resurface skin. It is a clean beauty product and leaping bunny certified. The key to how this product works is the “Siren Capsules”. The Siren Capsules “deliver age-reversing ingredients to the most vulnerable areas of the skin while avoiding the exposure of harsh actives to areas that don’t need treatment. The result? Healthy skin maintains its integrity and realizes visible improvement, while dryness and irritation are avoided. By stopping free radicals in their tracks, SIREN Capsules prevent visible signs of damage and aging.”

has never disappointed me. Tatcha continues to have some of the best products out there and the prettiest packaging. Lately I’ve been using their The Deep Cleanse Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser and the best selling Violet-C Brightening Serum. The cleanser gently removes all makeup and dirt while minimizing excess oil and uncloging my pores. It is gel like and turns to a creamy foam. The Violet-C is 20% Vitamin C with 10% AHA’s. This is designed to brighten and strengthen skin for a more radiant look. The directions say to use it at night but I used it in the daytime after the Tatcha Essence and followed with moisturizer and sunblock. Check out Tatcha, they won’t let you down. 

in this month’s skincare and makeup finds. This month I’ve switched things up with some fabulous finds. I have been using Ren’s Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic. It has a delicious cucumber smell. It uses Lactic Acid and Salicin(BHA) to exfoliate, brighten, tighten and hydrate. It’s gentle enough to use every day.

In the morning I follow that with Lancome’s amazing Renergie HCF Triple Serum. It’s and anti aging serum with Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, Niacinamide, and Ferulic Acid. This serum feels luxurious. It’s designed to improve volume loss, reduce wrinkles, and brighten dark spots. It has a unique triple chamber packaging to combine ingredients in the perfect balance.

My makeup find is Kosas’s Air Brow lifting treatment gel. I use this in the daytime for a natural yet enhanced look. It adds volume with a soft flexible hold. Kosas is a clean beauty brand, and this gel is boosted with hair care actives to help brows grow and thicken. It has biodegradable plant based microfibers for fullness and volume. Panthenol Provitamin B5, Biotinoyl Tripeptide-1, Trehalose, and Hyaluronic Acid for Brow health. It’s the perfect not too dry not too wet brow product.

The products go through rigorous clinical trials and they have before and after pictures for proof. I have been using their B-Tight Lift & Firm Booty Mask. It is designed to fight the look of cellulite and visibly firm the look of skin. It’s called a mask, but you leave it on, and apply twice a day for best results. You will immediately feel a warming sensation. It definitely feels like it’s working right away So get with Maelys and tighten that booty while you drop it low…

in my cup and now on my body. I’ve been using Juara Skincare’s Invigorating Coffee Scrub. What I love most about this scrub is not only does it exfoliate but it also cleanses. It has sulfate free cleansing agents that activate when working it in to your skin. The scrub is gentle and leaves skin soft. It boosts circulation and is said to tighten skin and fight cellulite. So wake up your skin with Juara, and get it on in the morning….

AlphaRet is a patented technology that combines retinoid and an AHA. It will improve the overall clarity, tone and texture.

I love every product from this line, and this product does not disappoint. It is designed to boost the effects of your skincare while resurfacing and hydrating the skin. 


Australian Gold’s Plant Based Lotion & Sunscreen with SPF 50 is my favorite new sunblock. It smells amazing. It is part of their new Plant Based line, and formulated with Aloe Vera and Coconut Oil. 


Givenchy’s Le Rouge Universal Hydrating Lip Balm is my go to balm for under my lipstick or gloss. It’s a clear moisturizing balm that is designed to hydrate up to 24hrs. It has hyaluronic acid and jojoba seed extract to soothe and nourish lips all day. 

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 ;)…
