I know I’ve mentioned my love for the RMS Living Luminizer before, but I’m here to say it again. The stuff is magic in a jar. It’s a tiny little jar, yes. But a little bit of it will take you a long way. I’ve been using mine for about two years. It’s probably time for a new one, I guess, but there’s still so much in there. It gives a lit from within glow. It’s not shiny. It’s not shimmery or glittery. It’s just glowy. And perfect. I add a little to the top of my cheekbones, the center of my forehead, and my cupid’s bow area of my upper lip.
I added the SkinMedica GlyPro Antioxidant Serum back into my routine and have been loving the skin-smoothing and brightening results. Remember when I raved about it a couple years ago? It’s packed full of antioxidants to protect your skin from damaging free radicals. It also brightens, moisturizes, and it has a glycolic acid base that helps skin turnover so that your skin texture becomes smoother. It doesn’t contain any parabens or fragrance. I love this stuff!
Beautycounter Daily Shampoo. My hair is so much healthier since switching to this about a year ago and it doesn’t weigh it down at all—it’s a purifying formula. Plus, it’s not full of harmful ingredients like parabens and phthalates that are often found in other shampoos and personal care products. (Those ingredients are linked to issues like hormone disruption, allergies, cancer, and reproductive toxicity to name just a few.)
I’ve been wearing OPI Tiramisu for Two on my nails since Thanksgiving time. It’s the perfect nude in my opinion. The great thing about nudes is that they make your fingers look so much longer! I normally have nail polish ADD and have to change it at least once a week, but this is one of those few colors I just haven’t gotten tired of. To me, it’s darker than what it shows in the bottle. Here’s a good picture that shows how it compares to other popular nudes.
Think I’ve saved the best for last this time. I’m giving my Beautycounter Tint Skin Foundation (which I still love) a little break for the GRESSA Minamalist Corrective Serum Foundation and whoa is it amazing. Most important, it’s totally free from harmful ingredients and is “green.” Second, it’s packed (and I mean packed) with skincare ingredients like broccoli seed oil, various extracts and vitamins, and GRESSA’s very own healing complex. Third, this foundation gives the most beautiful results—I love it more than any Chanel, Dior, BECCA, MAC, or Givenchy (the list goes on) foundation I’ve ever tried. And that’s saying something. It makes you look like you’re glowing from the inside out. And surprisingly, the longevity on this foundation is pretty awesome too, considering it’s a serum. I think the key is in their Air Focus Foundation Brush. I tried applying it with other brushes, but this one is by far the only one that worked the way I needed it to. You’ve got to buff this foundation into your skin really well to make it last a long time and look airbrushed. That’s easy to do because the formula just glides on and the brush is outstanding at doing it’s job.
