For the start of what I suspect will be an insanely busy week, I wanted to highlight some gorgeous skincare items I’ve been trying as of late. I love that fact that all three products can be seamlessly integrated into my current skincare routine!
1. Kanebo Sensai Skin Focus Corrector: This retractable balm, which retails for $38, can be applied to the fine lines of orbital area and anywhere else your skin needs refinement and hydration. It smoothing texture also softens the look of pores and unevenness with a single swipe. If you are looking to perfect your visage in a matter of moments, this topical wonder is definitely worth a try!
2. Perricone MD Blue Plasma Orbital: Harnessing the power of Salmon Egg Extract, Licorice and Bio-Plankton (just to name a few of the most unexpected and venerable skincare ingredients in existence), this eye treatment gently encourages hydration, de-puffing and cell turnover without the slightest bit of irritation. I have been wearing this day and night and am impressed by how smooth the corners of my eyes have become. The 0.5 fl. oz. jar retails for $65, which is beyond affordable in the high end eye gel/cream world!
3. Orlane B21 Extraordinaire Youth Reset: This ultra-luxe serum hasn’t officially debuted online, however, I’ve had the privilege of trying it for the past couple of weeks. The French line Orlane Paris is known for its cutting-edge approach to anti-aging skincare and this formula, which retails for $250, does not disappoint. Here’s what Orlane says about B21 Extraordinare:
For the first time, an exclusive complex resets cells. It targets all the factors that cause problems within the cell and sets the clock back. Cells regain all their energy and function as they did in youth; the skin can benefit fully from the essential elements provided to construct its collagen and its body.
Skincare is challenging to assess in writing, chiefly because everyone’s skin is different and properly testing an item should take four to six weeks. That being said, I love to keep my readers in the loop regarding what I am dabbling in, even if I am not at a point of giving my final impressions! I will definitely report back in a few more weeks regarding my culminating thoughts.
Good things ahead on the blog…Napoleon Perdis glosses, a new shade from Lipstick Queen, an anti-aging pillowcase (!), a video featuring Jouer products and the first ever Beauty Professor Holiday Shopping Guide (this will be BIG!). Also, if you didn’t get the chance on Saturday, please take a peek at my overview post of the gorgeous Surratt Beauty line…a video + copious amount of swatches, just for you!
