Many of you have heard of Anastasia, brow guru to Hollywood’s elite. Well, following the success of her cosmetics line she has ventured into the skincare realm and I am really impressed with her active and inspired creations. The secret ingredient in her new skincare products is a proprietary ingredient called Balkan Botanical Infusion, an antioxidant blend of rare plant and herb extracts found in Romania which help to soften, soothe, hydrate, and restore the skin’s natural radiance. This is one of those ingredients where you can see and feel instant results, and I personally love that! Following are a couple of my favorites in her line.
Blue Lotus Mist ($26 US, available May 2010 exclusively at Nordstrom)
I was fortunate enough to get an early peek at this fab new Anastasia product and let me tell you, I am really liking it! Blue Lotus Mist instantly refreshes and wakes up my tried, sluggish skin and makes it feel perky, awake and radiant. I actually feel it working on my skin by getting the blood flowing and bringing a nice healthy flush to my face. It helps my skin feel more alive in the AM.
The Blue Lotus Flower (which represents purity and peace) is the Chinese Symbol for life and has been preserving the beauty of Asian women for over 5,000 years. Anastasia’s new Blue Lotus Mist combines hydrating water, her exclusive Balkan Botanical Infusion and lotus flower extracts from South Africa to revive dull and tired complexions with an instant burst of radiance. This lovely mist revitalizes, calms and detoxifies the skin all at the same time. Kudos Anastasia for creating such a fab new product!
Line Erasing Serum ($45 US)
This is another great product from Anastasia that really gives my eyes (and face) some much needed lifting and smoothing in the morning. I use it in the AM to lift, hydrate and perk up my skin or at night as an all over anti-aging treatment. This lightweight serum contains a unique blend of natural hydrators, Instalift Goji (another proprietary innovation that diminishes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin), Balkan Botanical Infusion and sodium hyaluronate (hydrates, smooths and refreshes the eye area). The combination of these active ingredients all help to soothe, soften, hydrate and make the skin look brighter and smoother.
