My Latest Beauty Product Obsessions for November 2011

I have been a very busy girl lately, testing and trying out a slew of fabulous new beauty products, tough job right? But someone has got to vet the best and most inspired new products coming down the beauty pike and I am always the first one to jump to the front of the line. So with that being said, below I’d like to share with you, nine products that I am currently loving right now and just can’t get enough of! Some of these products are inpsired by the winter holiday season, some combat dryness, and one even has an ingredient that mimics snake venom, but they are all hand tested by me. Enjoy and let me know your thoughts! 

Lather Sweet Lips Limited Edition Lip Balms This is a fabulous trio of lip loving limited edition lip balms in totally addictive seasonal holiday flavors like peppermint creme, candied orange (my fav), and lemon bar. These botanical balms are naturally flavored with essential oils, contain SPF 15 and pure beeswax which forms a nice barrier against the winter elements. I love how emollient, hydrating and yummy these balms are and because this trio is under $20, I think it would make a nice holiday gift for your girlfriends.

Immunocologie Treatment Creme VenoMAX

This is a totally indulgent, luxurious face treatment cream that contains VenoMAX, a proprietary complex that mimics snake venom activity. Specifically, VenoMAX mimics part of a polypeptide found in the venom of the Temple Viper by instantly smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and protecting against inflammation. This potent cream also has an immediate brightening effect, it evens skin tone and helps erase the appearance of past sun damage. I love how hydrating and yummy this cream feels when I put it on my face and I immediately notice how it tightens and firms my skin, very cool! 

Fekkai Ageless All-Day Hair PlumpThis is an ultra-luxurious, daytime leave-in treatment that plumps, replenishes and retexturizes your cuticle to reveal thick, silky smooth hair. It provides intense, continuous moisture throughout the day by filling and plumping up damaged and roughed up cuticles, which results in stronger, younger and healthier looking hair.  This FABULOUS product has totally changed my hair! I can’t get over how bouncy and rejuvenated my hair looks after using this treatment, I LOVE it!

Braun Satin Hair Active Ion Brush

This is an amazing state of the art hair brush designed with active ionic technology that helps eliminate static, smoothes your hair and boosts shine with the touch of a button.  Once you turn this brush on, the active ion light shines and the ion jet releases a rich stream of ions which instantly changes the texture and look of your hair. I kid you not, this brush is an absolute miracle! It totally eliminates static and frizz, and I especially love using it the morning after a great blowout or after a night out on the town because it refreshes my hair and gets rid of the smoke or any other buildup in my hair.

Murad Complete Reform with Glyco Firming Complex

This is a lightweight, multi-benefit anti-aging treatment that increases firmness (up to 61% after just one application), diminishes fine lines and makes skin softer and younger looking. This product contains carotenoids, one of the latest anti-aging superstars which firms skin and targets wrinkles around the clock without irritation. I love how this product instantly absorbs and immediately makes my skin look and feel softer and smoother. I can definitely see a noticeable difference.

Pink Papaya Pumpkin & Goji Berry Mask  This is 100% natural mask that contains red and white kaolin clay to balance and tone your skin; honey, sunflower seed oil and lychee extract to moisturize; acai and goji berry to detoxify; papaya extract to lightly exfoliate and pumpkin seed extract to help smooth and firm your skin. All of these gorgeous nourishing ingredients work together to pull the toxins out of your skin while at the same time making your complexion dewy and youthful. This is totally the type of mask I love because it really cleans out your skin while rejuvenating it at the same time and it smells yummy and refreshing too!

Jus D’Amour Perfume Oil

I have been obsessed with this luscious sensual little fragrance for quite a while and I am truly sorry I am just getting around to sharing it with you now, it is that good! Jus D’Amour (Love) opens with a top note of a dark and dusky coco palm with a hint of green aqualeaf, then there is a creamy Tahitian vanilla middle note wrapped around sandalwood followed by the subtle base notes of violets and jasmine which all come together in a sophisticated, serene, warm, soft, sweet gorgeous perfume. This is an intoxicating, sensual, warm fragrance that is perfect for the cooler Fall nights-you are going to love it!

Jouer Glisten Brightening PowderThis is a lightweight luminous loose powder that instantly brightens and enhances your complexion with soft, opalescent light-reflective pigments and a hint of shimmer. This translucent formula is enriched with Vitamin E, Chamomile, Cucumber, and Pomegranate Extracts which calm and the soothe skin. I have become totally addicted to a  light dusting of this magical powder over my cheekbones, bridge of my nose, forehead and décolleté-it instantly brightens and creates a gorgeous radiant complexion. So simple and makes such a difference!

Dermalogica Overnight Repair Serum

I am constantly impressed with the inspiration and skincare innovations coming from Dermalogica and ORS is no exception. This is an oil based peptide serum designed to be used at night to minimize fine lines, help stimulate collagen and renew your skin while you sleep.  Each night, I conduct a quick but relaxing massage with this Argan and Rose oil based serum which has a wonderfully calming scent, and in the morning I wake up with the most radiant and luminous skin, love it!

Comments

  1. Love, love, love some of these. I’ve used Dr. Murad (a lifetime ago he was my dermatologist) and Fekkai, but neither are lifetime items for me. The one I really want is VenoMAX, but it’s something like $300! That’s where want versus need come in….

    Fun post, though. Especially to see some of my favorite new ones too.
