If you suffer from dry skin like I do, Vaseline’s latest Sheer Infusion with Stratys-3 Body Lotion will put an end to your misery!
The new product contains Glycerol Quat, Glycerin and Hydroxy Ethyl Urea to infuse and suspend moisture across the skin’s top, core and deep down layers so your skin stays hydrated and silky smooth.
What I like most about it, however, is how light it feels on the skin. While most body lotions I have used do moisturize the skin, they leave behind a greasy feeling that takes ages to go away. With Sheer Infusion, the product sinks in so fast I actually enjoy putting it on. Plus the fact that I can see a difference in the overall hydration and texture of my skin in only a few days just makes the product so much better!
Disclosure: The Vaseline Sheer Infusion with Stratys-3 lotion was sent to me for review but is now available in three variants – Botanical Blend, Mineral Renewal and Vitamin Burst (my favorite) – at all food, drug and mass retailers nationwide for $6.25 to $8.99.
Lately, I have fallen in love with H2O Plus Cleansing Body Oil ($22) from the latest Sea Pure Bodycare Collection.
This oil-based cleanser contains sea lavender, shea butter and sunflower seed oil to gently remove impurities while nourishing the skin. It goes on very light and once it touches water, it foams gently and washes off very easily. My skin is left super silky and moisturized with no greasy feeling. But the thing I love the most, is the lavender aroma. It is so soothing and relaxing that it feels like showering in a bubble bath! Plus it is 100% vegan and biodegradable with no synthetic fragrances, parabens, petrochemicals, phthalates or sulfates so it is perfect, even for those with sensitive skin. Must get the full size once my sample runs out!
The Sea Pure Bodycare Collection is now available at www.h2oplus.com and all H2O+ stores. Other products from the line include Reviving Body Buffer, Purifying Body Mud, Replenishing Body Cream and Finishing Body Silk.S
After the huge success of the Volcanic Ash Exfoliator, MAC released a new Volcanic Ash Thermal Mask ($19.50) with the Style Black collection.
This limited edition tar-black mask contains Volcanic Ash and natural oils to deep-cleanse and treat the skin to keep it moist, clean, soft and evenly-textured.
Recently I was sent a new product, Dr. Denese Firming Facial Resurfacing Peel, to keep my skin glowing and those evil flakes at bay.
The Firming Facial Resurfacing Peel is a creamy orange peel that claims to deliver a “brightened, refreshed complexion by deeply exfoliating to reveal smooth, radiant skin that is firm, toned, and glowing, while improving skin’s texture and elasticity in just five minutes.”
Fall is almost upon us and if you are not ready to say bye-bye to that golden summer glow, check out anti-aging expert Dr. Adrienne Denese‘s 4-step Exfoliate, Moisturize, Bronze and Protect approach on how to maintain it.
* Exfoliate. Dead skin cells can make your skin look dull and lifeless so make sure you exfoliate regularly for your skin’s natural radiance to shine through. This step is also extra crucial for those who use self-tanners. My picks are Skin Food Black Sesame Hot Mask or the good old Baking Soda mixed with a creamy cleanser.
* Moisturize. The scorching sun along with the AC all summer can really dehydrate your skin and kill skin cells. Dr. Denese recommends moisturizing your skin at least once a day. After cleansing, I like to use a hydrating toner followed by an oil-free moisturizer like NARS Aqua Gel Hydrator.
* Bronze. Prolong your fading summer glow with a self-tanner. I personally like to mix a liquid bronzer into my foundation to add warmth or blend NARS The Multiple Bronzer on the cheekbones towards the temple.
* Protect. Sun protection should be used through out the whole year, regardless of the weather. Remember to use a product with at least SPF 30. My favorite? Vichy Aqualia Thermal Lotion SPF 30 24 Hr Fortifying Moisturizer.
It is no secret that great skin is essential for any great look and the one product Kim Kardashian swears by to keep hers looking glowy and smooth? Caress’ latest Skinwear Collection.
The Evenly Gorgeous Exfoliating Body Wash and Beauty Bar, both from the Skinwear Collection, contain burnt brown sugar and karite butter (aka shea butter). These two ingredients are commonly used in skincare products and are famous for their gentle exfoliating and moisturizing properties. The grains are also just the right size – tiny enough to do the job without being harsh to the skin.
I am not a fan of soaps that come in a bar but the Evenly Gorgeous Exfoliating Body Wash keeps my skin super smooth and moisturized. It also helps to unclog pores and is great for prepping the skin for shaving and self-tanner. And did I mention it smells great, just like butter cookies?
Now you can find the Caress Skinwear Collection at your local food and drug stores for $3.99 to $6.99.
