Summer is in full swing and with it comes some fun new products that I have been enjoying. Check them out:
Tarte Glow With The Faux – I already love Tarte makeup, so it didn’t surprise me when I fell in love with their tanner as well. I have been trying to be really smart and good with my sunscreen this year, but I miss my tan. Just carefully apply this foam with the glove and you will have a beautiful dark tan. While it promises streak free colour, that doesn’t mean you can be too relaxed about applying. I almost ended up with streaks because I was being careless. So apply it as if you are very concerned. My only issue with this tarte tanner is that my skin smelled like fake tanner for longer than usual. Most of the time the smell fades after you wash it off, but this lingered for a while. So stock up on body lotion that smells great and tan away!
Nuxe Nuxellence Eye Contour – Don’t judge a product by its size. This slim little eye cream is one of the best that I’ve ever used. This cream helps you get instant results for tired looking eyes. My under eyes instantly felt softer and more moisturized. The dark circles look less prominent and blend into my skin more. My eyes really seem to pop more in all the right ways.
Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Pillow Plump XXL Lip Plumping Gloss – Soap & Glory makeup is not common in Canada, but if you can get your hands on it, jump at the chance. This Pillow Plump lip gloss is one of my new faves that goes with me everywhere. It leaves a glossy clear (maybe slightly pink) finish on the outside, but what everyone can’t see is what’s happening on the inside. It has a “3XL Peptide Plump” ingredient that gives your lips a serious tingle. With that comes lips that look fuller than ever. It’s a look, and a feeling, that you are going to want to try for yourself!
Covergirl Vitalist Elixir Foundation – Sometimes you just need a good, trustworthy foundation without all of the tricks. This new Covergirl foundation is exactly that. It just gives you a great finish on your skin that looks natural. It’s nice to know that sometimes there are brands that you can just trust to make reliable products.
I am going to be honest and admit that I always thought eye creams were a money grab. I always assumed that you could use your regular moisturizer. I figured as I got older bags and dark circles were inevitable. I would still go through phases of using them just to entertain the idea that there was life without dark circles. For the first time ever, I am seeing real results thanks to Lise Watier.
I had this little eye cream for a long time before I started using it. Like I said, I didn’t have any faith in it, so why rush. I used it once or twice before I started to give it a real commitment. After I started using it regularly I started thinking, ‘Gee, I look good today’ or ‘Hmm, I look younger.’ I didn’t think much of it. That wasn’t until I started noticing that the dark circles I have had around my eyes for my entire life were getting lighter.
This wasn’t just age it was erasing, but darkness I can always remember having. The skin under my eyes looks and feels tighter as well. I wish I had a before and after picture, but I didn’t take a picture because I didn’t expect it to work.
I wouldn’t consider myself old just yet, but this Lise Watier eye cream is already making me look younger. As a part of the Lift & Firm 3D collection, I wish I had the other products in the line to see what else it could do for me! I am ready for old age now! Nothing can stop these eyes!
I discovered Nude Skincare by accident while looking up a different skincare line. I was surprised to see this brand already had a very loyal following and I had somehow missed them. When the Advanced Renewal Overnight Mask and Eye Cream landed on my doorstep I couldn’t wait to find out what all of the fuss was about. Nude Skincare made a great first impression. The packaging is sleek and minimalistic. The logo is cool. Nude Skincare with its natural ingredients and paraben and chemical free isn’t here to be fancy, but make a subtle statement that you won’t forget.
I started with the overnight mask. This cream is smooth with a faint smell, but nothing overpowering. That is important for me with a night cream. I hate going to bed smelling strong creams on my skin. It keeps me up all night.
The cream also gets absorbed into your skin quickly, so you don’t have to wait for it to dry. Since it is called an Overnight Mask, which was impressive to me. I expected to have to wait before letting my head hit the pillow.
When I woke up though, I looked in the mirror and didn’t see anything. My skin felt the same. It looked the same. I didn’t appear to be glowing or more radiant or look younger.
I moved on to the Advanced Renewal Eye Complex. This little cream on the other hand gives me instant results. Apply this baby sparingly under your eyes to see your circle get lighter and less noticeable before your eyes. Your skin looks so refreshed. I apply a little foundation or bb cream over top and no one would ever know about my dark circles. My only complaint is that unlike its companion, the under eye cream does take some time to dry, so you need to let it sit for a few minutes.
Because of the amazing results I got from the Eye Complex, I am going to go back and give the Advanced Renewal Overnight Repair Mask a second chance. Maybe it takes longer to get results, but if my experience with Nude Skincare is what I can expect in the future. You will be hearing a lot more about them here.
