C’est Moi Beauty: Welcome A New Generation of Clean Beauty

C’est Moi Beauty: Welcome A New Generation of Clean Beauty

Raise your hand if you miss rocking a full, beat face outside, that everyone can see! We certainly do but we take our safety seriously so we will continue to mask up. Of course, that doesn’t mean we still can’t have fun with makeup (the gram still exists after all). Unfortunately, we also are still dealing with the effects of maskne, but thanks to makeup and skincare products made with clean ingredients, we can help alleviate and reverse maskne.  This is why we’re so excited to play with the wonderful clean beauty offerings from C’est Moi Beauty.

C’est Moi Beauty: Welcome A New Generation of Clean Beauty

C’est Moi Beauty is a clean, toxic-free beauty brand that thoughtfully formulates gentle products specifically for young, delicate skin. The brand offers gentle, skin-loving face masks to wearable neutral eyeshadows and playful lip colors. It is one of the few clean, EWG-verified skincare and color cosmetic brands around. All C’est Moi Beauty products are dermatologist tested, clinically tested on sensitive skin, hypoallergenic, vegan, cruelty-free, made with natural & organic ingredients, made in the USA, contain recyclable primary and secondary packaging, and do not contain any synthetic fragrance, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, mineral oil, silicones, propylene glycol or dyes.

C’est Moi Beauty: Welcome A New Generation of Clean Beauty

We had the chance to have a little fun with three of C’est Moi Beauty’s makeup offerings: the Visual Artist Makeup Crayon Set, Dream Beams Cream Highlighters, and Reflect Lip Gloss Trio Set. Get to know more about them below:

C’est Moi Visual Artist Makeup Crayon Set, $25.00

C'est Moi Visionary Makeup Crayon Kit

The C’est Moi Visionary Makeup Crayons make it simple to incorporate some color into your look. Whether you want to make your eyes pop or an artistic statement on your face. Using vibrant hues, these versatile crayons allow you to get creative with your style while being gentle enough to not irritate all skin types. The 6-pc set includes the following colors: Night, Ruby, Sapphire, Leaf, Daffodil, and White, but we highly recommend you check out all of the colors of the Visionary Makeup Crayon.

C’est Moi Dream Beams Cream Highlighter, $10.00

C'est Moi Dream Beams Cream Highlighters

C’est Moi Dream Beams Cream Highlighter comes in three shades (Aura: Pink, Moonstruck: Opal, and Sunstar: Gold). It gives your skin a delicate, dreamy glow. This creamy, weightless, and blendable formula is enriched with shea butter, aloe leaf juice, and berry fruit peel wax to deliver a fresh and luminous halo effect. A little of this highlighter goes a long way. It gives you high voltage glimmer on your cheekbones, nose, eyes, and browline. We love that aloe stands out a bit dominantly as the fragrance.

C’est Moi Reflect Lip Gloss Trio Set, $18.99

C’est Moi Reflect Lip Gloss Trio Set

The C’est Moi Reflect Lip Gloss Trio Set gently smooths, hydrates, and moisturizes lips without the sticky feeling. Enriched with a unique blend of natural and organic oils like Jojoba, Castor Seed, Sunflower, and Soybean, these lipglosses adds sheer color and shine while nourishing lips.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on the clean beauty products from C’est Moi Beauty.

Combat Dry, Winter Skin With These Winter Skin Savers

Combat Dry, Winter Skin With These Winter Skin Savers

As we enter into the season of cold, dry air, you may notice your skin gets drier, itchier, and looks and feels less supple. That’s because the cold will drastically affect your skin. The cold air has less moisture; the harshness of the winds will strip your skin of its moisture; and unless you have a humidifier at home, the heated air in your home will dry out your skin. All of these leads to your skin looking aged. It is a fact that your skin needs an extra level of love and hydration during the cold, winter months. Luckily, there are some wonderful skincare products out there to help and we’re highlighting them today. Let’s face it, we all want luminous skin for the holiday season and all winter long and these winter skin savers are here to help.

The CLEF Skincare Hydrating Cleansing Gel is a multifunctional cleanser that delivers multiple benefits in a single step.

Holiday 2020 Gift Guide: Beauty Gifts You'll Love to Give & Receive

Holiday 2020 Gift Guide: Beauty Gifts You’ll Love to Give & Receive

So much of this year has been so ugly; it’s time to think about adding some much-needed beauty to the holiday season. The pandemic is forcing us to add a bit more self-care practices into our hectic lives and we’re here to help. We’ve already featured some great gift ideas for wine lovers, and today we share some beauty gifts the beauty lovers on your list will love.

Holiday 2020 Gift Guide: Beauty Gifts You'll Love to Give & Receive

From beauty tools to product-packed gift sets, you and the beauty addict on your holiday gift list will love these wonderful beauty gifts from Fancii, Trophy Skin, Miss Swiss, Beekman 1802, and Benefit Cosmetics. Keep reading to get to know these must-have beauty and skincare products.

  1. Fancii Remi Rose Quartz Roller, $47.00 – Remi is the must-have beauty tool for when you need a little TLC. Since spa services are very limited due to the pandemic, we’ve had to up our at-home spa experience. This dual-ended facial massage roller stimulates blood circulation, increases collagen production, and improves skin’s texture, firmness, and elasticity. This glamorous tool is designed with 30 small germanium stones to replicate a massage similar to one you’d receive at a spa. Plus these stones are made to attract harmful positive electrons from the skin caused by overexposure to phones and computer screens. The naturally sourced Rose Quartz stone can be used to massage acupressure points on the body to help manage nausea, tension headaches, and more! With just 3 minutes a day, you’ll see improved skin texture and firmness.
  2. Fancii Lighted Vanity Mirrors, $48.00 – $119.00 (various sizes) – Fancii designs innovative beauty tools for skincare, nail care, and makeup endeavors. Natural daylight is proven to be the best light for makeup application but finding that perfect ray of sunshine at home or on-the-go can be a struggle. Their mirrors are built with natural daylight LED lights to eliminate Bad Beauty Lighting for all men and women, at home and on-the-go. We love the Zora Tri-Fold Vanity Mirror ($69.00) for its three-panels and trio of LED light settings. Fancii’s mission is simple, to make beauty routines easier, more effective, and even a bit more glamorous.
  3. Trophy Skin BrightenMD Beauty Tool, $99.00 – this multi-function eye, face, and neck beauty tool offers a quick, effective, and relaxing treatment. It’s a portable facial in your purse. Enjoy Microcurrent stimulation to improve your skin’s appearance; therapeutic warming stimulation for improved circulation; red light therapy that stimulates cell turnover and renewal; ultrasonic waves that enhance absorption of your favorite serum; a smart touch sensor turns on when in contact with your skin; and a 90-degree rotating head that makes every treatment a comfortable experience.
  4. Miss Swiss Travel-Size Makeup Case, $30.00 – if you look at any professional makeup artist’s makeup kit, you’ll see it’s a hard case or trunk. It’s the best way to protect the products and tools they work with. We’ve all experienced a lipgloss or lipstick uncapping in our bags thanks to friction; or opening up your purse to find the horror of loose power everywhere. Unlike makeup artists, the average beauty lover can’t carry those “toolbox-like” carriers every day (no purse is that big). Thankfully, there is a solution. Thanks to 24yr old entrepreneur Ashley Piszek and her patented travel size makeup case, your makeup kit can be as protected as a professional makeup artist.  The Miss Swiss Travel-Size Makeup Case resembles the utility of a Swiss Army Knife® with custom holders that prevent friction between commonly used makeup products. Miss Swiss also helps in making makeup application on the go much easier, something we’re positive your current makeup bag can’t do.
  5. Beekman 1802 Twinkle Twinkle Collection, $94.00 – What’s more fun than an advent calendar full of amazing beauty treats? $160 worth of beauty treats to keep you pampered every day until Christmas.  Celebrate each and every day of your holiday countdown with Beekman’s signature Advent calendar, stocked with 24 minis of their favorite bath and body products. Daily surprises include Goat Milk Wash, Goat Milk Lotions, Stick of Butter, Cuticle Serum, Bar Soaps, Lip Balms, Hand Creams, Cuticle Creams, and a Gingham Hair Clip.

BIGGER, BADDER volumizing mascara, Precisely, My Brow Pencil ultra-fine brow defining pencil, The POREfessional smoothing face primer, and Hoola matte powder bronzer for face, all in a reusable tin that’s ready to go under the tree.
  7. Benefit Cosmetics Shake Your Beauty Advent Calendar, $65.00 – since we offered you a skincare advent calendar, we had to share a makeup one. Also from Benefit, the Shake Your Beauty holiday advent calendar makeup set includes mini and fun sizes of Benefit Cosmetics’ 12 bestsellers; a $139 value for only $65.00.

Fall Beauty Musts: 5 Skincare Products With Unique Twists

Fall Beauty Musts: 5 Skincare Products With Unique Twists

It’s a new season, so you know what that means? New skincare! Much like we change our clothing every season, so do must we change our skincare, and today we’re highlighting five skincare products that wow you with their unique capabilities and ingredients. Trust us when we say, your skin will love you. As we all know, changes in seasons, temperature, etc affects your skin; so you need products that will provide as many benefits as possible and these do.

Fall Beauty Musts: 5 Skincare Products With Unique Twists

Today, we present the incredible skincare products from Payaru Skincare, Ollie Belle, Elevé Cosmetics, Dazey CBD, and PhilanthroBee. From skin-softening facial scrubs to invisible blemish-fighting barriers and a moisturizing sunscreen, these five skincare products are a must for the changing season.

Payaru Skincare, $12.00

Payaru Skincare Mung Bean Facial Scrub

Payaru introduces a different type of facial scrub, one powered by the mighty mung bean. If you didn’t know, mung bean is great for acne-prone skin. It also hydrates, brightens, and is a great natural, anti-aging solution. We fell completely in love after one use. We still can’t stop touching our face; it feels buttery soft for hours afterward. The way it sloughs off the dead skin and leaves behind total softness… it’s incredible!

Each of Payaru Skincare products contains only 3 or 4 natural ingredients, all of which are non-toxic, vegan, and biodegradable. These two scrubs are products you can trust and feel comfortable putting on your delicate face. Payaru sees the crushed mung bean not only as a gentle exfoliant but one that enhances the health of your skin. As a bonus, it saves freshwater and ocean life from added microplastics in the process.

Ollie Belle, $26.95

Ollie Belle Acne and Blemish Barriers

It’s time to say goodbye to unwanted blemishes. Covertly! Ollie Belle is unlike any other dot acne treatment on the market. Not only is it FDA-registered and produced in the US, but Ollie Belle also offers you medical-grade acne care at an affordable price. Their dots are flexible, durable, and ultra-thin. No one will know what’s under your makeup. We love that Ollie Belle’s acne and blemish barriers work with our everyday needs so you feel like your most confident whether you’re lightly painted or wearing a full beat.

Elevé Cosmetics Vitamin Sea, $49.00

Elevé Cosmetics Vitamin Sea

No matter the season, sunscreen is an important addition to your beauty arsenal. The Elevé Cosmetics Vitamin Sea mineral antioxidant sunscreen with SPF 28 is a thoughtfully curated sunscreen made for everyday protection. Not only will it help prevent sun damage and skin cancer, but it will also leave you with a healthy, moisturized glow thanks to turmeric, shea butter, and vitamins C and E.

Dazey CBD, $45.00 – $108.00

Dazey CBD

We’re all been enjoying the calming effects of CBD beauty products. That enjoyment should definitely continue into the cooler seasons. Known for its anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties, CBD is great for reducing redness, irritation, and uneven skin tone. Dazey is a natural beauty and wellness brand that believes in the power of hemp and it shows in their wonderful products.

Their full-spectrum CBD oil is tested by a third-party lab and contains absolutely zero preservatives, sweeteners, or added flavors. It counteracts free radicals, protects against environmental stressors, and nourishes the skin with vitamins and fatty acids. Our lives may not be completely stress-free, but your kin should feel and be stress-free.

PhilanthroBee, $38.00

PhilanthroBee BeeCause Body Bar

One thing we don’t like about the colder seasons is the way it leaves our skin feeling – tight, flaky, itchy, or angrily inflamed. The last thing you want is to layer chemically treated thick creams on top of your already irritated skin. That’s why PhilanthroBee’s BeeCause Body Bar works with your body heat to melt into your skin. Using the power of natural bee products, it soothes, replenishes moisture, promotes skin health, and protects your skin against damage.

Their ingredients are simple. Organic raw honey, unrefined beeswax, and bee propolis are harvested right from their hives in California and are medicinal by nature. They penetrate deep into your skin for lasting moisture and then create a bacteria-fighting barrier to lock in hydration and protect your skin from irritation. With its melty texture and creamy color, the BeeCause Body Bar feels like it just bee-longs on your skin.

We hope you add a few or all of these five skincare products to your fall beauty arsenal. Their unique twists will benefit your skin greatly and help you survive the subtle and dramatic effects the change in season has on your skin.

Get a Grip: Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Collection Sets Your Makeup for Hours

Get a Grip: Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Collection Sets Your Makeup for Hours

One thing about the end of summer we are thankful for is the extremely high humidity. It’s like Kryptonite to a beat face. There’s nothing more annoying than sweating your makeup off. Even with blotting sheets and powders, the humidity can ruin a flawless face. Of course, just because the fall season is here, doesn’t mean humidity goes away. Although it is a bit less aggressive, humidity is here all year’ round. Luckily there are beauty champions to help combat the unwanted effects of humidity and give your makeup more staying power. With the Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Collection, you enjoy makeup that is set and locked in for hours; all you have to do is shake to activate.

Get a Grip: Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Collection Sets Your Makeup for Hours

The Hydro Grip Set + Refresh Spray ($36.00) and Hydro Grip Primer ($30.00) make up the beauty power couple that is the Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Collection. Once these two products are applied to your face, your makeup is staying put, humidity be damned. As the newest member of this must-have beauty duo, we’ll highlight the Hydro Grip Set + Refresh Spray first.

Get a Grip: Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Collection Sets Your Makeup for Hours

This clean, alcohol-free setting and refreshing spray sets makeup for up to 12 hours, hydrates skin, and leaves you with a breathable, gleaming glow. Don’t worry, you won’t be left looking greasy, just wonderfully dewy. The setting spray features a dual-phase formula you shake to activate. It contains blue agave extract to grip and set makeup while hemp-derived cannabis seed extract, hyaluronic acid, aloe, and niacinamide hydrate, refresh, and provide antioxidant benefits for blissed-out skin all. day. long. The Hemp-derived cannabis seed and moringa seed oils add an extra shot of hydration to lock in moisture for that dewy glow. It forms a weightless invisible layer so you can also use it before your makeup application to prep your skin. We love the fact that you can use it throughout the day as needed to refresh and revitalize your skin.

Get a Grip: Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Collection Sets Your Makeup for Hours

The award-winning, hydrating, Hydro Grip Primer is also formulated with hemp-derived cannabis seed extract and blue agave extract. Especially great for dry skin, you’re going to need this makeup-gripping gel primer as the cold, drier air of the colder seasons starts to deplete the moisture in your skin. Aloe makes it smells wonderfully fresh, a bit like morning dew. It glides on smoothly and remains tacky enough to hold your makeup, whether you apply light makeup or a full face. The aloe water and Hyaluronic Acid also hydrates, soothes, and calms your skin. Together with the Hydro Grip Set + Refresh Spray, your makeup and skin will be untouchable.

this duo has helped us so much; we always had to carry blotting sheets in our purse (if blotting sheets were currency, we’d be rich) and we usually use at least 3-4 a day. This was our routine until we tried the staying power of this Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Collection. We are now leaving our blotting sheets at home without feature of looking oily. Both Hydro Grip Set + Refresh Spray ($36.00) and Hydro Grip Primer ($30.00) are available now on www.sephora.com.
