Get the Look: Leighton Meester’s gorgeous skin

I am not going to lie, I love Gossip Girl I know I’m probably double the age of the target audience but its my guilty pleasure.  I have been noticing how flawless Leighton Meester’s (Blair Waldorf) skin is and wondered what she uses. Well it’s non other than La-Roche Posay the few things I have tried from the line I have loved and now I have something new to try, the Toleraine products. Now how to get my hands on a wardrobe like Blair Waldorf.

From Glamour to Marie Claire, Leighton Meester is spilling her beauty secrets. Leighton, who is known for her gorgeous skin, clues readers in on how to achieve complexion perfection. The key: this Gossip Gal uses La Roche-Posay’s Toleriane line.

The actress starts her day by grabbing her go-to face cream, La Roche-Posay Toleriane Riche Moisturizer, which she feels is “really gentle stuff.” After a long day of filming on the streets of NYC, she needs to rid her skin of all impurities; Leighton prides herself on going to bed with a fresh face. She says, “I’m really good about taking off all my makeup.” She uses Toleraine Dermo Cleanser, a light, smooth, and lotion-like cleanser that gently removes her makeup and additional residue — it’s no wonder she always looks camera ready.

Now if only there was a product that could help Blair Waldorf clean up her act!

La Roche-Posay is available at CVS Pharmacy, LaRoche-Posay.us, and Skinstore.com

Pamper Yourself with Lipikar from La Roche-Posay!

I love  Lipikar from La Roche-Posay! I received a sample awhile ago and it had got buried under one of my “to-do” piles. But with the warmer weather and constantly wearing sandals my feet were needing a little love. I started using the Lipikar line last week applying after my shower and the results speak for themselves. My skin on my hands and feet is much softer and even my heels are soft and smooth.  The lotion absorbs really well leaving only a softness to my skin no oiliness. A great way to keep your skin looking great all summer long.

Don’t have time for a day at the spa? La Roche-Posay helps you achieve expert results from the comfort of your own home! Indulge in a perfect manicure and pedicure with Lipikar Xerand and Podologics.

Lipikar Xerand is a non-oily fast-absorbing cream that leaves hands soft and supple. This water-resistant formula also helps reduce dryness from repeated washing. Simply apply and massage until absorbed for hands that beg to be held.

For cracked heels try Lipikar Podologics. It reduces the thickness of calluses in just 5 days and nourishes dry feet immediately. Put your best foot forward by applying daily and carefully massaging problem areas.

This sunscreen is ridiculous, it feels like buttah on my skin. It comes out as a super fine mist and after it absorbs my skin feels crazy soft. The first time I used Paula’s Choice  I walked around forcing people to feel my super soft skin. My husband laughed until he tried it then he fell in love with it too.  It provides great coverage so you aren’t left with missed spots that burnt. And because it feels so great on your skin their is no fighting my kids or hubby to use it.
