New! Kiehl’s Nightly Refining Micro-Peel Concentrate

kiehls micro peel

In one word WOW! I didn’t know my skin need refining until I stumbled onto this miracle in a bottle. Of all the products I have tried in 8 years of testing this is hands down  the fastest  working product I’ve tried. The results are fast and amazing.

The solution is a clear serum with a bit of viscosity but overall very lightweight. The bottle comes with a hand little dropper so you can get just the right amount to work into your skin. Just apply and gently press into your skin, and don’t let the word peel scare you. I was worried it was burn my skin but it felt light and absorbed right away. While I couldn’t see or feel it on my skin the next morning the results were in the mirror. My skin looked fresh, bright and heck down right radiant. I almost always use some sort of light foundation but since I started using this on Monday I haven’t worn foundation a single day.

It’s gentle enough to use daily and works to bring out your most beautiful youthful skin. I love Kiehl’s but this new Micro-Peel Concentrate made this girl a lifetime devotee. Please don’t ever discontinue this amazing product.

I love a great red lipstick and the new Poppy Smoothed Over Lipstick from Arbonne is an instant favorite. The creamy formula feels great going on and leaves my lips hydrated, and looking fuller. I love the vibrant color and am amazed at how long wearing this lipstick, even drinking this lipstick lasts me 4-5 hours without a touch up.

The lipstick has a beautiful glossy looks and when it finally does start to fade it leaves a pretty red tint to my lips. It looks as great as it feels, I can’t wait to try more colors.

New! Cargo Cosmetics Eye Contour Eye Shadow Palette


Cargo has released a beautiful new eye shadow palette with everything you need to create a gorgeous eye look in three easy steps. I tried Palette 02, below you can see swatches of the colors starting with the cool light on the left and working down to the bottom right Shimmer base.

The base creates a beautiful canvas for the colors, I am definitely partial to the matte base. I found all the colors very pigmented and even more so when on top of the base color. On top of beautiful pigmented colors these shadows last all day and the great little palette makes it easy to take your look from day to night with a few sweeps of the brush.
