Sometimes, your skin can be frustrating—especially if you’re battling both acne and early signs of aging. To help battle this combo Murad has two brand new launches that they’ve added to their Anti-Aging Acne line, formulated to simultaneously target both hormonal acne and the visible signs of aging: Advanced Acne & Wrinkle Reducer and Anti-Aging Moisturizer Broad Spectrum │SPF 30 PA+++. These two products, along with their best-selling Time Release Acne Cleanser, are a triple threat against acne and fine lines and wrinkles.

This cleanser is pure perfection for my skin. I always struggle to keep my skin clear this time of year. With the warmer weather my combo skin is very blemish prone. This gel cleanser is mild and has a very refreshing scent. It leaves my skin feeling clean without drying it out. The cooles part is its a time released formula, so it keeps fighting acne even after I rinse my face.

This is a huge bottle and a little goes a long way, definitely a great value.

Step 1: Murad Time Release Acne Cleanser
This high-performance, anti-aging acne cleanser featuring sustained-release Salicylic Acid helps clear skin and restore youthfulness. Solution continues to work even after rinsing.

This high-performance solution includes an innovative anti-acne treatment technology that continues to work even after you rinse it off. Proven to reduce acne while diminishing fine lines and wrinkles.

Such a genius idea to combat adult acne and aging all in one tube. One of my favorites from this line. I have seen a huge improvement in clarity and the fine lines around my eyes and mouth have softened.

A very lightweight gel  its spreads easily and absorbs instantly leaving no residue or dryness. It works great and hasn’t caused any issues for my sensitive skin which is pretty amazing. Definitely a go to product in my daily routine from now on.

New! Kiehl’s Sun Protection in 3 new formulas

This summer, Kiehl’s Since 1851 proudly introduces 3 NEW sun-protection formulas, ensuring both face and body are fully protected until the sun sets! I’ve attached press releases for more details and hi-res images are in the links at the bottom of this e-mail, and the line-up includes skincare for daily use, for eye protection, and for active or beach use:

Super-Fluid-UV_125ml_RENO

A must have for summer. I love this ultra thin lotion it absorbs quickly, smells great and leaves a matte finish on my skin. Perfect for my combo skin this paraben free sunscreen doesn’t feel greasy or make me break out. I use this prior to my makeup everyday to create a great base that feels good and protects my skin from sun damage.

Super Fluid UV 50ml
First up, for daily use: an improved formula of Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 50+, a lightweight paraben-free formula that’s silky, non-greasy and leaves a matte finish on the skin. This formula is made for daily use, and creates a matte base alone, or under makeup, and is an efficient addition to your morning skincare regimen, ensuring that you’re protected every day. $38-$61.

201502_Clearly-Corrective-Dark-Circle-Perfector-SPF30_lg

Keihl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector wears like a BB cream. The formula is super light and blends easily. The touch of color instantly brightens my under eye area. The caffeine helps reduce the puffiness and dark circles. Between long summer nights and allergies this has been a lifesaver. It’s a great concealer that leaves my eyes looking brighter and more awake and not made up. On top of all that it has SPF  30 to protect my skin from sun damage!

Clearly Corrective™ Dark Circle Perfector with SPF 30
Instantly brightens and perfects the delicate eye area, reduces discoloration, and protects against future damage with SPF 30. The pigmented formula instantly brightens your under-eye area while shielding it from the sun’s damaging rays. Activated Vitamin C helps reduce the appearance of under-eye circles, while caffeine helps reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark circles. $38.

Kiehls_AquaLotion_SPF30

I usually opt for spray sunscreens as I find a lot of lotions are so heavy and don’t absorb well. Kiehl’s has changed my opinion with their Activated Sun Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Lotion. Its so incredibly lightweight and true to its name feels more like water than a lotion.

The lotion is so thin and light it was a breeze to apply and didn’t leave any residue. And with Broad Spectrum SPF30 it provides unbeatable protection. I use this on my face and body its so lightweight and doesn’t cause breakouts or leave any sticky feeling. And along with protecting my skin it contains antioxidants to repair my skin while it protects. I won’t be heading outdoors this summer without this in my bag.

Activated Sun ProtectorTM Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Water-Light Lotion for Face and Body
Formulated with an advanced combination of sun-filters to provide broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection in a unique water-like texture that feels weightless on skin. Antioxidant Vitamin E helps condition skin, as the formula transforms to a water-like, weightless texture on skin, leaving it smooth, refreshed and protected.

Learn more about the new products and purchase at your local Keihl’s store or at Kiehls.com.

Sally Hansen Special Effects for Summer

pearl crush

When I first applied this polish I wasn’t too sure about the formula. It was more gel like than usual polish and took a bit of practice to not get too heavy of an application. The end result of Pearl Crush is beautiful. The  iridescent gel like color is a great neutral look and the crushed pearl adds a bit of sparkle.

SALLY HANSEN INTRODUCES A NEW SPECIAL EFFECT: CREATE A RADIANT, IRIDESCENT LOOK WITH PEARL CRUSH™

This summer, it’s time to get cultured—with pearls, that is. Sally Hansen introduces Pearl Crush™; a collection of eight new Special Effect polishes that give nails an eye-catching, shimmery finish. Inspired by the season’s iridescent trend, the Pearl Crush™ polishes have a unique combination of pigments that interact with layers of large, faceted glitter particles. The resulting effect: a 3D crushed pearl look that plays off light, lending a lustrous, vibrant look to summer manicures. Choose a softer tone or go dark—either way; you’ll want to wear these precious “pearls” everywhere you go!

PRICE & AVAILABILITY: This limited-edition Pearl Crush™ collection, SRP $5.99, is available beginning June 2015 at chain drugstores and mass retailers nationwide.

instaombre

I am kind of obsessed with Insta-Ombre. I thought it was just another sparkle polish but it really is a standout. And whether I choose to do two basic coats for the sparkle or the third tip coat for the ombre its a stunningly beautiful polish. And pretty easy to remove for a glitter polish.

Will definitely be adding more shades of this to my collection. The color I am wearing below is Layer on Lilac, love it!

CREATE A DAZZLING GRADATED LOOK WITH NEW SALLY HANSEN® INSTA-OMBRE™ NAIL COLOR

It’s official: Ombré is the look of the decade. From runways to red carpets, from highlights to home decor, a gradated wash of color is perpetually on trend. Now, Sally Hansen makes it easy to create a sparkling ombré manicure with new Insta-Ombre™ Special Effect.

Available in eight high-impact glitter shades, this clever and innovative ombre-in-a-bottle makes it easy for women to achieve the look in just three simple steps. First, apply one coat to clean, dry nails. Next, apply a second coat from mid-nail to the tip. Finally, apply a third coat to only the nail tip. Voila: A radiant, wash of ombre color at your fingertips.

big peel off

SALLY HANSEN INTRODUCES BIG PEELOFF BASE COAT

Everyone wants a manicure that looks perfect, resists smudges, and removes easily. Traditionally, it hasn’t always been easy to achieve those desired results. Now, however, Sally Hansen introduces a nail essentials to simplify and improve the at-home manicure regimen: Big Peel Off Base CoatTM .

For nail-art aficionados, glitter girls, and anyone else who lives for regular manicures, Big Peel Off Base Coat changes everything. Nail polish remover can be harsh on nails, leaving them dry and brittle—and therefore, prone to breakage. Hard-to-remove special effects such as glitters, textures, and shimmers can damage nails further by scraping the nail surface and can be a time consuming removal process.

That all changes with the introduction of Big Peel Off Base CoatTM. This fast, convenient easy base coat makes it easy to remove glitters and other special effect polishes in a single step. Just paint on the base coat, which quickly dries to a transparent finish. Apply nail polish as usual and enjoy the manicure. When it’s time for a change, simply peel off the polish in one fluid movement. No scrubbing, soaking, or fussing—just a clean, healthy-looking nail.

PRICE & AVAILABILITY: Sally Hansen’s new Big Peel Off Base CoatTM , SRP $5.99 each, will be available in June 2015 at chain drugstores and mass retailers nationwide.
