I just had to throw that in for you Sound of Music fans 🙂 Being a beauty blogger, I am constantly asked about which products are my favorite, that’s like asking a mother which of her children she loves best. It’s impossible and unfair to choose, yet I often find certain products that stand out above the rest, ones that I find myself addicted to, love at first trial, can’t get enough of, etc. So following is Part One of a list of new products that I currently adore:
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye This is an amazing full coverage, waterproof, highly pigmented concealer that offers insane coverage (it even conceals bruising and swelling!), won’t cling to fine lines and wrinkles and it stays put. It also contains high concentrations of Vitamins K, A, C, E and collagen which reduces under eye puffiness and discoloration while strengthening the delicate skin of the under eye area. This concealer is genius, works wonders on my bags and dark circles, and I am totally obsessed with it!!
Golden Door Eye Gel with Vitamin K This is a wonderfully hydrating, skin-firming eye treatment gel that helps reduce the appearance of dark circles, fine lines, and puffiness. It contains peptides, amino acids, and plant extracts such as Vitamin K, Spirulina, and Aloe Vera Extract which together deliver instant and visibly noticeable results. I have recently dabbled into the world of fillers, and am especially loving how this product accelerates the healing of the swelling and bruising under my eyes after my injections.
Repechage Eye Rescue Pads If you haven’t noticed by now, I am obsessed with eye products because in all honesty this is my most problematic area. These fabulous eye freshening pads instantly cool and offer soothing relief for my tired, puffy, irritated eyes. The pads contain seaweed and four types of natural teas which work together to hydrate, replenish, refresh and deliver anti-aging ingredients that rejuvenate the eyes in just ten minutes. I use these pads every Sunday along with my facial mask du jour and adore how refreshed and supple my undereye area looks.
Kaplan MD Sheer Berry Lip 20 Moisture Therapy + SPF This is a dermatologist formulated lip treatment that moisturizes, contours, plumps, and protects all-in-one. LIP 20 contains 10 active ingredients to help prevent aging, including: SPF 20 sunburn protection, highly moisturizing seabuckthorn berry extract, hyaluronic filling spheres which immediately smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and patented peptides and marine collagen to contour and redefine the lip line. I love the sheer color, fullness, moisturizing, and how this product makes my lips feel. I also adore the super cool high tech James Bond looking packaging.
Buddha Balm in Crushed Mint Pineapple Buddha Balm is a yummy flavorful soy based lip balm that contains vitamins, nutrients and essential fatty acids. These yummy balms come in a variety of hip trendy flavors like Crushed Mint Pineapple, Lychee Pomegranate, Mandarin Orange Ginger and Burnt Sugar Fig which are all designed to awaken (Buddha translated means “awaken”) the senses and promote awareness. I love the tasty sweet flavors of these balms and especially adore that they are handmade locally in Los Angeles-I love supporting local businesses!
