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.
To answer some of your skin-related questions, I did a brief interview with Dr. Jeanine B. Downie, a board certified dermatologist with medical licenses in the states of New Jersey and New York. Dr. Downie is also a frequent contributor to The Today Show, Good Morning America, The View etc. and has been quoted on numerous magazines like Glamour, Allure, Elle and more.
Kenzo’s newest invention, Cleansing Ice Jelly, is definitely not your ordinary cleanser. It contains Ginger plant water and Ginseng extract to clean and tone while stimulating circulation and improving blood flow for younger-looking, glowy skin. But what sets it aside from other cleansers is the texture. It goes on very lightweight, like a white jelly but turns clear with a water-like consistency upon skin contact. It also feels very gentle on the skin and cleanses with no tight/greasy feeling.
One word of advice, if you wear waterproof mascara or heavy makeup, this will not do the job completely. But as a cleanser for the AM in the upcoming hot summer months, this is perfect.
The Cleansing Ice Jelly is available at www.kenzousa.com and all Kenzo counters for $28.
Lately, I have become obsessed with Kenzo’s Relaxing White Lotus skincare line. The line is inspired by white lotus and is all about milky textures and divine fragrances to help your skin relax. All products come in a white, minimalistic packaging and are suitable for all skin types, especially those with stressed-out skin.
The Relaxing Whipped Eye Cream ($45) is definitely my favorite from the line.
It contains plant water, white lotus, essential oils and mineral salts (which are the main ingredients in the White Lotus line) along with Actiflow to stimulate circulation and reduce black circles and puffiness, and Dormance/ Narcissus Bulb Extract to slow down cells to preserve energy.
The texture is very velvety and sinks in like a dream. My eyes feel instantly refreshed, moisturized and definitely less puffy. I also use this in the AM and never had a problem putting makeup on top.
You guys want to know how I keep my skin clear? Here is the latest list of beauty products that I use religiously :
What I Use In The AM
* Vichy Aqualia Thermal Lotion SPF 30 24 Hr Fortifying Moisturizer
* Vichy Neovadiol Lips And Eyes Densifying Care
Thanks to the harsh Chicago winter weather and my sensitive dehydrated combo skin, I normally get tiny flakes around my nose and cheeks during this time of the year but ever since I started using Bliss Peeling Groovy Facial Serum ($65), my evil flakes have never returned!
The Peeling Groovy Facial Serum is a revamped version of Bliss’s famous Sleeping Peel Serum. It is a clear, oil-free, non-irritating exfoliating serum that works on smoothing fine lines, minimizing pores, correcting uneven skin texture and brightening skin discolorations.
