Uma Thurman showed up at the “In Bloom” World Premiere (during the Toronto International Film Festival 2007 in Toronto, Canada, September 8) looking absolutely radiant! With very little makeup! How does she do it? Well, Uma is a huge fan of the Protective Skin Care Products.

Try their Cranberry Mint Gel:

Cranberry Mint Gel. Refreshing is the first word that will come to your mind upon application. This refreshing gel is targeted for oily/acne prone skin. It is a non-oily moisturizer. This mint gel combines anti-bacterial, soothing, cooling and sebum reducing ingredients. It is a gel-based moisturizer, so it will not feel heavy or greasy on oily/acne prone skin.

What does it do? The refreshing effect will reduce oil production in the skin. Cranberries work as an anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial agent. Aloe Vera will heal and refresh the skin. Most oily/acne moisturizers are either not moisturizing enough or the exact opposite. This Cranberry Mint Gel is the answer for those on the hunt for that finisher that seems so hard to find.

It only takes one application to get addicted to this ultra-light moisturizer.

I had the opportunity to try Befine!

I did a review a couple months ago on Befine – the food skin care product! I was totally thrilled when Alexis with Befine offered to send me some samples to try out!

Make Her Up wants to introduce you to Be.Fine Food Skin Care!

Feed your skin with food ingredients that clean, tone, moisturize and treat skin naturally. Prepared from ingredients sourced from plants and minerals, Be.Fine products offer skin what the body innately knows: you are what you eat!

In fact, Be.Fine’s food-rich elements (including rice and wheat proteins, fruits, vegetables, nuts, herbs and spices) are so easily digested by cells, they’re actually edible – but only taste appetizing to your skin.

My favorite product that was sent to me was their Lip Serum! The greatest part of the Lip Serum – is the amount you get.  It is a ridiculous amount! I’m serious – if this bottle didn’t last you 10 years I’d be amazed.

1. Plump up and tighten skin; renew collagen; protect from the effects of UVA
how: Palmitoyl Oligpeptide
why: Plant origin-combination of amino acids, fatty acids and peptide groups to hydrate lips.

2. Supports new collagen growth; soothing, moisturizing and anti-oxidant agent
how: Chamomile Oil
why: Constituent properties promote tissue regeneration and strengthen skin

3. Keeps lips moist
how: Safflower Seed Oil (Cartamus Tinctorius)
why: Vegetable emollient.

Another product I had the pleasure of trying out was their Eye Brightening Treatment.  At first I was a bit skepitcal – as I am with most eye creams.  But after a couple days, I was really pleased to find actual results! I could tell it made a huge difference, and my eyes did seem brighter than before!

1. Alleviate dark circles
how: Seaweed biopeptides (Hydrolyzed Ulva Lactuca Extract)
why: Seaweed biopeptides (Hydrolyzed Ulva Lactuca Extract) enhance the metabolism of the skin to produce collagen.

2. Lifts, tightens and reduces fine lines and wrinkles
how: Avocado oil (Persea Gratissima)
why: Rich moisturizer penetrates skin quickly to repair damage.

3. Diminish the appearance of aging
how: Olive extracts
why: Skin oil analogue, synthetic sebum.

One product I tried, and unfortunately wasn’t a huge fan of, was their Warming Clay Mask.  I found it incredibly difficult to get on my face.  It was VERY thick, and VERY difficult to spread over my skin.  It does actually get warm, but I’m not sure if that’s a good thing.  I dunno, maybe it’s just me – but I don’t really want my face mask’s warm.  Once I finally did get the mask on my skin, I found it hard to get off. 

1. Detoxifying, warming, oil absorbing
how: Kaolin
why: Natural clay with exceptional drawing and oil absorbing properties.

2. Soothes and heals
how: Arnica Montana Flower Extract
why: Anti-inflammatory.

3. Stabilizes free radicals
how: Pomegranate Extract (Punica Granatum)
why: Source of polyphenols, powerful antioxidants.

I would say overall – I really enjoyed trying Be Fine’s products.  The quantities they give you is GREAT, and they’re not that expensive.  Not sure what you want? Why not start with a sampler?

Want to smell like Diesel?

Right off the bat this bottle does not appeal to me it looks kind of like it is hiding out in an old sock. Maybe I am just not cool enough to get it? The floral and fruit notes sound promising though maybe it is worth the try. Has anyone out there gotten past the sock to try it?

DIESEL® ‘Fuel for Life’ Femme Spray

DIESEL® Fuel for Life for women is a sexy and energetic elixir with a crispy fresh black currant opening that catches the heart notes and enrobes them in a charming magic trick, shortly followed by sweet, addictive black currant and raspberry notes with aphrodisiac properties.
