Gentle ways to cleanse your skin with Osmotics!

osmosis414

Want to get your skin bikini ready? By using Osmotics’ amazing cleansing products, you can have your skin ready in no time! I’ve been using these two products on-and-off for a couple months now, and I’m LOVING THEM! I love the Moisture Lock Body Wash. It’s moisturizing, and makes my skin look and feel amazing. The Body Scrub is invigorating. Scrub off your dead skin for a younger, healthier glow!

Moisture Lock Body Wash ($24)

Treat your skin to the ultimate bathing experience! This sulfate free, moisturizing formula contains aloe vera, glycerin and soothing botanicals to gently cleanse and hydrate leaving skin silky, smooth and soft. Perfect for all skin types, our dual formula may be used for a luxuriously relaxing bath or fragrantly sensual shower.

What results will I see?

  • Ultra gentle, hydrating, sulfate free formula
  • Moisturizes & soothes parched winter skin
  • Leaves skin soft, comfortable & silky smooth

Sugar Scrub Body Polish ($38)

This fragrant concoction of natural sugar, exotic oils and skin pampering vitamins polishes to perfection, leaving even the driest skin, soft and silky smooth.

What is it?

Osmotics was the first brand to develop a sugar scrub in the mid-nineties as a more gentle and effective alternative to the salt rubs that were so popular at that time (not great to use after shaving…ouch!)  Sugar is an excellent, yet gentle exfoliator that encourages the production of natural moisturizing factors in the skin.  Combined with exotic, skin pampering oils and nourishing vitamins, this luxurious body treatment leaves the skin soft, smooth and silky without any oily/sticky residue. This new body pampering favorite is homogenized to prevent separation so the formula glides on effortlessly and rinses easily.

What results will I see?

  • Skin Nourishing Oils & Natural Sugar Banish Dry Rough Skin
  • Advanced Formula Will Not Separate – No Oily Residue
  • Shea Butter, Vitamin A & E Provide Anti Aging Benefits
  • Leaves Skin Soft, Silky & Smooth
  • May Be Used For Shaving Legs

Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum

jimmy-choo-perfume2

 

The Jimmy Choo fragrance is a floral scent which are usually not my favorite. But I love the scents of Orchid and Tiger Lilly mixed  with the sweet toffee scent. It goes on strong at first but the dry down is beautiful. And I am amazed how long this scent lasts. I can apply it in the morning and still smell it at the end of the night. It is a bit on the spendy side but you just need one spritz to last all day so the price ends up being on par with fragrances I need to use multiple times in one day.

The roller ball is a great way to try this fragrance out and see how it works for you. Head over to Nordstrom soon, this fragrance is on sale right now on their website.

Jimmy Choo Eau De Parfum  $58.00-98.00
Imagine femininity, luxury and style, bottled. Introducing Jimmy Choo, the fragrance. Expressing an aura of strength and beauty, glamour and confidence, it is inspired by modern women. Luminous green top notes, a heart of rich and exotic tiger orchid and lingering sensual base notes of sweet toffee and Indonesian patchouli leave a sensual memory on the skin.

Notes:
Green, Tiger Orchid, Toffee, Sensual Indonesian Patchouli.
Style:
Feminine. Luxurious. Stylish.

 

Available for purchase at Nordstrom stores and at Nordstrom.com.

Murad Launches Two New Acne Products

Murad is one of my favorite skincare brands, they make effective products that are priced great for how well they work. They have just launched some great new Acne products, and so far I am really impressed. Check out the items below to see my review of each.

 Murad_AcneSpotFastFix

When they say Fast Fix they are kidding. I had a blemish coming in and I applied a dot of this before bed. I figured in the morning it might be a bit better but still in progress. To my amazement the little sucker was gone! I have used this three times and each one it has got rid of the blemish before it reared its ugly head. Truly a great acne product.

Acne Spot Fast Fix $16
Prior to this launch, Murad steered clear of using Benzoyl Peroxide (BPO) because of the irritation it typically causes. Using a breakthrough in skincare technology, Murad is launching its first-ever product containing BPO because we finally found a way to incorporate this effective ingredient without compromising the health and integrity of the skin.

This technology is a unique new delivery system, called Hydrophase, and along with Micronized Benzoyl Peroxide, it allows the BPO to penetrate the skin and provide powerful spot treatment without the irritation that is commonly associated with BPO. Acne Spot Fast Fix helps reduce pimple severity in as little as 1 day* and can be added to any existing regimen.

Murad_AcneClearingSolution

This is one of the fasted working acne products I have tried. At the first hint of a blemish I apply the treatment and by the next day the skin is clearing instead of getting worse. I really like how mild this is, it has not caused any irritation or dryness. And I have noticed it has started to clear up redness from prior breakouts.

Acne Clearing Solution: $39
This is a full face treatment product that is meant for daily use and is designed to immediately fight breakouts without causing purging. Featuring Salicylic Acid combined with other advanced acne-fighting ingredients such as Queen of Meadow Extract and Tea Tree Oil, Acne Clearing solution not only treats and prevent breakouts, it fast-tracks the healing process by minimizing dryness, redness and peeling. 96% of users saw clearer skin in 72 hours*

Murad_AcneStarterKit

If you are new to Murad or want a complete acne line this is the way to go. The Murad Clarifying cleanser is perfect for troubled skin. The gel formula is a great wash for removing all the dirt and grime to prevent break outs. You get the two amazing treatment products. This kit is rounded out with a great oil control mattifier to keep your skin looking great all day.

Acne Starter Kit $30
Why you need it:
Clinically proven to rapidly clear breakouts and restore smooth skin without dryness or irritation.

Primary benefits:
96% of users saw clearer skin in 72 hours while using our featured product, Acne Clearing Solution.* Restores skin’s health, clarity and appearance.

*In a Murad-Sponsored study. Individual results will vary. Study results on file.
