Beauty by Design: Artis x Nicole Guerriero Limited Edition Holiday Brushes

Looking for more gift ideas for the beauty lover on your list? How about something that’s extra special. Everyone loves receiving something that is made in small batches. We love limited edition gifts because we know not too many people will have them, once they are sold out, they are gone. This makes them very special, almost exclusive. One such beauty item is the Artis x Nicole Guerriero Limited Edition Holiday Brush Set, a trio of beautifully designed makeup brushes perfect for gifting any makeup junkie.

Artis, makers of the stunningly designed, ergonomic makeup brushes, has teamed up with beauty creator sensation Nicole Guerriero to create a limited-edition holiday gift set, the Artis x Nicole Guerriero Limited Edition Holiday Brushes, complete with gorgeous custom packaging. Whether the beauty lover on your list is a makeup pro or enthusiast, these cosmetic brushes make a must-have beauty gift. These brushes showcase trademarked CosmeFibre technology, a revolutionary engineered fiber created by Artis, and an ergonomic handle for delivering effective, flawless results.

The Artis x Nicole Guerriero Limited Edition Holiday Brush Set consists of the following brushes:

  1. Elite Mirror Oval 6:  The best selling size Artis brush in the world; this brush is a favorite among makeup artists and celebrities for applying foundation, concealer, highlighter, blush, contour, and even skincare formulas.
  2. Elite Mirror Oval 3:  This compact brush is a great size and shape to expertly apply and blend products on and around the eyelid area; including a focused application of foundation, contour or concealer to key areas of the face.
  3. Elite Mirror Linear 1:  A revolutionary brush designed so that a thin row of patented CosmeFibre makes creating line shapes easier.  In fact, whether you’re filling in your brows or lining your eyes, this brush is superb to use, because the line it draws can be as narrow as only a couple millimeters wide.

The #NicoleGxArtis Special 3 Brush Set is available for $99.00 on www.ArtisBrush.com.

What’s New in Skincare: Dermalogica PreCleanse Balm

Have you ever washed your face and thought it was clean but then you use your toner and still see traces of dirt, oil, or your makeup? Did you know the average person spends less time than recommended cleansing their skin? This isn’t sufficient enough to remove all the make-up, sunscreen, excess oil, and environmental pollutants that build up throughout the day. In the age of long-wearing makeup, super harsh environmental allergens, and crazy climate phenomena, you need a product that will truly clean your skin without stripping it. Thankfully, there is a product that does wonders in thoroughly cleansing your skin to leave it wonderfully clean, the Dermalogica PreCleanse Balm.

The Dermalogica PreCleanse Balm ($45.00) is “step zero” in Dermalogica’s exclusive Double Cleanse technique. It attracts and dissolves the layer of buildup that typically blocks your regular cleanser. This unique cleansing balm cuts through the buildup in just one application, setting the stage for your healthiest-looking skin ever. We’ve been using it for a few weeks now and not only has our skin improved from being truly clean, our face looks less oily. We’re also enjoying supple and soft skin as the temperature outside continues to decrease. A water-activated formula that transforms from a balm to an oil, the Dermalogica PreCleanse Balm is an innovative take on Dermalogica’s iconic, top-selling PreCleanse Oil.

This oil-based cleanser is ideal for normal to dry skin types. It features a Natural Biolipid Complex that locks in hydration and reinforces the skin barrier while Apricot Kernel Oil helps nourish the skin – AND it comes with a double-sided, ergonomically-designed mitt for enhanced cleansing and exfoliation! How do you use it? Check out the easy steps below:

  • Step 0: Dispense the balm onto the cleansing mitt or directly to the dry palm of your hand. Massage into dry skin. Add water to emulsify and transform the balm into a lightweight cleansing milk. Rinse.
  • Step 1: Apply your Dermalogica Cleanser to remove any leftover traces of PreCleanse Balm and impurities for a professional level of clean. Skin is left soft, nourished and ready to receive the benefits of your regular skin care regimen.

The Dermalogica PreCleanse Balm comes in a 3.0 oz/90 mL tube with the cleansing mitt and retails for $45.00. Find it at leading Dermalogica Spas and Salons, Ulta Beauty, Bluemercury, and www.Dermalogica.com.
