Lancome Declares October 22, Genes Day!

Christina Hendricks, Julia Roberts and Lily Allen adore Lancome’s latest skin care product, Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate ($78- $98, sephora.com). The product has been shown in clinical trials to improve skin in 7 days. It evens out skin tone and improves texture.

On Friday, October 22, Lancome will donate $7.00 for every bottle bought to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to aid with scientific research. St. Jude is the first and only pediatric cancer center to be designated as a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute. St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for a treatment not covered by insurance—and no child is ever denied treatment because of the family’s inability to pay. St. Jude is financially supported by ALSAC, its fundraising organization.

If you’re in the market for a new anti-aging product, you may want to take a closer look at Lancome’s Genifique this Friday. You’ll not only pamper yourself, you’ll help someone else.

What’s Kim Kardashian’s biggest beauty pet peeve?

The one beauty faux pas Kim Kardashian wishes women would stop making?

“I hate when women wear the wrong foundation color,” she tells the Toronto Sun. “It might be the worst thing on the planet when they wear their makeup too light.”

Karadashian, who turns 30 Thursday, helped launch FusionBeauty ColorCEUTICALS collection earlier this week in Toronto, where she revealed her beauty routine.

It’s simple, she says: Toner, cleanser and moisturizers by Perfect Skin. When she’s not working, she sports little makeup, foundation and blush, the paper reports.

Her one beauty must-have? “Definitely blot paper or powder,” she says.

She says it’s inspiring that women turn to her website and Twitter account for beauty and fashion tips.

Says the reality starlet, “I do it for fun and put up fun beauty tips and fashion, so it’s really amazing that people read it and follow it.”

I’m in love with Murad’s Refreshing Cleanser!

I ran out of my last face wash, and headed to Sephora in search of something new! I use Murad’s Skin Perfecting Lotion, I already knew I loved the line! It’s an awesome non-drying, foaming cleanser that washes away surface oil and makeup. I don’t like to take my makeup off first with a makeup remover – then wash my face with a different product. This combines both – leaving my face feeling clean and healthy! I highly recommend this product! You won’t be disappointed!

NEW from Kiehls! Photo-Age High-Potency Spot Treatment

I have very sensitive skin, and as I get older, the sun is taking its toll. By the end of the summer, I will have a patch of sun spots that are less than cute. I hate it! I looked into finding sun-spot removers, but there weren’t a lot to pick from. I was happy to get a sample of this product, see if it really works!

I use it twice a day, in the morning and before bed. I’ve noticed the sun spots are slowly going away. I’ve been using it for two weeks, and I’m confident that in a month or so these spots of mine shall be gone like the summer sun! I highly reccommend it!

High-Potency Spot Treatment powerfully reverses UV damage three ways: provides instant luminosity and radiance, reverses visible damage on skin surface and inhibits invisible damage from rising to the surface.

How to use: Apply on areas of concern for targeted action (such as on intense, stubborn spots) or apply over the entire face and décolleté for preventative action (such as blotchiness and hyperpigmentation).
