p161206_spackle.jpg

Laura Geller’s Spackle can do no wrong. It helps to hide the large pores of youth. It helps to smooth out the lines of misspent youth. You do not need a moisturizer with this. Use like a moisturizer and then apply makeup as usual. Perfection.

What it is:
One of Laura Geller’s signature creations – a sleek foundation primer.

What it is formulated to do:
This sleek undercoat smoothes and perfects skin’s texture, prepping it for foundation. Formulated with nourishing, soothing botanicals, it’s lush, lightweight, and suitable for all skin types.

What else you need to know:
Spackle is 100 percent oil-free and comes in an “airless” pump so you can get every drop.

To use: Smooth over clean, moisturized skin. Follow with foundation or wear alone.

Viewer Review: Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion – Fragrance Free

aveeno1.jpg 

When it comes to moisturizing, I have three strikes against me. I live in a climate that features very cold, dry winters, my skin is already very dry and itchy, plus I’m terribly allergic to products with any perfumes. So I needed something that would turn my winterized scaley, dry skin back into human flesh without the perfumes that would send me into a sneezing fit and irritate my already irritated skin.

I had to try out many products before finally hitting the jackpot. Finding Aveeno’s fragrence-free line has saved me from many unseemly reactions. I find their Fragrance Free Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion really hydrates my skin during the cold, dry winter days. I also really like that it’s not greasy or heavy.

Plus, the Aveeno products don’t cost a fortune, which might just be my favourite part of it all!

Aveeno® Skin Relief Moisturizing Cream has been clinically proven to provide long-lasting moisturization to relieve dry, flaky, itchy, cracked skin.  This breakthrough, patented formula with natural colloidal oatmeal, cocoa and shea butters, and cooling menthol provides intense moisture to help heal and protect itchy, extra dry, chapped skin.  This rich cream provides a non-greasy, protective barrier to help heal cracked skin and prevent future dryness –  leaving skin moisturized for 24 hours so skin feels softer and smoother all day long.  It’s even great on especially rough areas like heels, elbows and knees.

Viewer Review: “I too have adult acne”

mdforte.jpg 

I have been trying to treat problem skin since I was 13 years old. Now that I am 40, I have finally gotten it under control.

I’d like to give a shout out to the DDF line. For adult pore problems, a glycolic acid based wash really helps. DDF’s is 7% glycolic acid, which isn’t bad, but I had better luck with a line called MD Forte. http://www.dermstore.com/product_Facial+Cleanser+I_263.htm

They have a 12% wash, which I would massage over dry skin, then gently rinse with warm water.

I also can’t say enough about Murad’s acne line. I give high points to the AHA/BHA Cleanser. It’s only for using a few times a week though. Their spot treatment really works, especially if you apply it often during the day as soon as you see a blemish.

Finally, the girl who does my facials, uses a line called Pevonia, and I use the SPF daily as a moisturizer under my make-up. It’s SPF 30, is light, and doesn’t cause breakouts.

Description: A gentle, creamy cleanser suitable for even the most sensitive skin. Exceptional at removing daily residue, makeup and oil to leave skin smooth and soft.

Recommended Use: Apply a quarter size amount and massage over skin. Rinse with warm water and a clean wash cloth, blot dry. Use morning and evening or as directed by a physician or skin care professional.

Viewer Review: Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss!

p182406_hero.jpg

Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Afterglow is my favorite summer gloss. The color is described as providing a peachy pink sheen and that is very accurate. The gloss is sheer, so it enhances your lips with a flattering tint and makes them shiny, but isn’t cakey or overwhelming. It’s great to combine with a lipstick as well. The color is a warm shade that flatters all skin tones and it feels great on-not too sticky, but still lasting. This is my favorite gloss on the market right and comes in an array of colors and at $18 dollars it’s a worthwhile investment!

What it is:
A sheer, ultra-moisturizing lip gloss.

Drench your lips in luminous color and shine with this ultra-moisturizing formula that keeps lips soft and smooth for hours. Available in a variety of long-wearing shades and three advanced color formulas for a range of dazzling looks that enhance your lips like never before.

Formulas include:
-Sheer Color: Full of shiny polymers and pearls with a hint of glistening color for three-dimensional shine. Brush wand flawlessly coats lips.
-True Color: Vitamin E and sunflower seed oil nourish with a touch of creamy color. The velour wand perfectly contours lips.
-Full Color: Saturate lips with brilliant color. Vitamin E moisturizes and the high-pigment shine goes on smooth and lasts for hours. The velour wand ensures color precision and control.
