If you’re looking for anti-aging products, listen up. L’Oreal’s Skin Genesis line makes use of the company’s own patented ingredient, Pro-Xylane, which aims to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by boosting the production of glycoaminoglycans within the skin. And if you’re not into the science of things – the Skin Genesis serum won Allure Magazine’s Best of Beauty Awards for Best Breakthrough in Skin Care, so you know it’s got something special. Plus, it’s got a 7/10 average on Total Beauty!
The lightly scented Skin Genesis serum is on the watery side, but applies smoothly and soaks into skin with ease. A little serum goes a long way – don’t overapply or you’ll be cleaning up with a washcloth.
Merry Christmas Eve! With all of the products I try, it’s a very good sign if one ends up in my everyday routine. I thought you girls might be interested in an early Christmas present: knowing which products make it to my daily makeup bag (which is a MAC Wonder Woman bag, by the way!). Don’t you feel special? Here’s a rundown:
I know tanning is an odd topic for a Thanksgiving Day post, but squint your way through your turkey coma and hear me out. Tanning is a toughie. Tan in a tanning bed, and you risk developing skin cancer. Mystic Tan can be expensive and usually lasts a week or less, depending on showering. Tanning yourself at home can be one of the most economical, easily maintained and safe tanning options, but is it easy enough for the average girl to pull off herself? I tried out L’Oreal’s Sublime Bronze ProPerfect Airbrush Self-tanning Mist in Medium Natural Tan to find out.
I loved the 360-degree continuous spray; it made it easy to spray all the way around my leg in one simple motion, rather than to have to stop and start in the hopes that you don’t overlap or miss a spot. It dries really quickly, too, without having to rub it in. The mist sprays so evenly and lightly, you can barely tell you have anything on you. Overall, the application process really satisfied me – above and beyond what I expected from a self-tanner!
Recently I decided to give L’Oreal’s HIP Cream Eyeliner a try. Combine the cute curious little cream-liner pot with the “Buy one, get one free” sign flashing before my eyes, and it’s a done deal.
At first, I was kind of hesitant when I saw the slant tip applicator brush it came with. I am a liquid liner devotee, and cream is still fairly new to me. I was in total shock at how easily it just glided on, and in a perfect line! Not only that, but the color (Black 905) was bold (guess that’s why they call it High Intensity Pigments) and didn’t smudge at all!
Get ready for some science, girls! The latest buzz in beauty and skincare products surrounds nanotechnology, which basically means the manipulation of extremely small particles. The idea is, teeny tiny ingredients can get deeper into the skin, contact more skin layers, and work faster.
