Cold Conditions Give Skin Relief: The NEW Snow Fox Skincare Collection

It is not even summer yet and the humidity is already doing a number on our skin. We don’t know how you guys are handling what feels like a layer of oil, dirt, heat, and grim on your faces (seriously, we feel the need to wash our faces all the time) but we need a bit of a cool touch to make our faces feel clean whenever we’re outside for more than 20 minutes. As the saying goes, ask and you shall receive. When it comes to cool things, nothing beats snow, so of course, we opted for a little arctic skincare pampering with the NEW Snow Fox Skincare Collection.

Say hello to the 3-step regimen that will keep you cool, and looking fresh-faced during those upcoming hot and humid summer days. The Snow Fox Skincare Collection includes a Soothing Facial Cleansing Mousse, Day & Night Multi Defense Cream, and ArcticBreeze Detox Cooling Mask that will leave skin looking and feeling flawless. Formulated with rare plant ingredients such as Cherry Blossom Extract and Gotu Kola, each product is strictly pure and does not contain any artificial colors, dyes, or fragrances, making it the perfect choice for those who want to indulge their skin, both sensitive and non-sensitive, in the lap of luxury.

Snow Fox All in One Detox Mask, $30.00

A powerful mask that moisturizes, brightens and evens out skin tone while tightening pores. Essential oils work to extract impurities from deep within the skin. Key ingredients for this cooling facial mask include Peppermint Oil Extract, Aloe Vera Leaf on a 100% Organic Cotton Sheet.

Snow Fox Soothing Facial Cleansing Mousse, $35.00

Collosol Eau de Lait: A French Secret for Parched, Wind-Whipped Skin

This winter’s bone-chilling temperatures have been wreaking havoc on our skin, stripping its moisture, disrupting the barrier function and leaving our faces dry, red and raw. We’ve been looking for anything that could help and came upon a wonderful French skincare secret. Cleansing our skin at the end of the long cold day with Collosol Eau de Lait.

Using Collosol Eau de Lait invokes the feeling of the milk baths that long ago royals indulged in. We imagined our skin felt exactly as theirs did, enjoying the beautifying benefits of the historically acclaimed milk bath. Not only did Collosol Eau de Lait take off all our makeup, our skin was left wonderfully soft. There was none of the tightness we’ve been experiencing during the harsh winter days we’ve been having. Using Collosol Eau de Lait during the blustery Bomb Cyclone was a true test of how amazing this product is. We promise you, it’s a must treat for your skin.

So what exactly is Collosol Eau de Lait? It is a moisturizing milk/micellar water hybrid. A thorough but gentle cleanser that can be applied with a cotton pad to remove makeup, moisturize, and soothe stinging skin. No rinsing with water is required, a good thing since the limestone in tap water can be irritating to parched, wind-shipped skin. The universal formula is also suited to all skin types, from sensitive to dry to oily/acne-prone. You will also love the subtle fragrance it leaves behind. It’s sure to take your mind off those cold winter days.

Here’s a cool tip: Lace a warm bath with Collosol Eau de Lait to cleanse, hydrate and luxuriate in the milk’s sweet, musky scent…and forget all about the frigid cold weather outside.

Collosol Eau de Lait is a French skincare classic created in Paris in the 1950s, which is now thankfully available in the U.S. at www.smallflower.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.

Med3 Dermaceuticals Facial Cleansers

I’ve attended a few gifting shows and new product launches and showcases and while there are usually tons of products to try out, you do get a few that fits your needs. One such product (well products) for me was from Med 3 Dermaceuticals. It was love at first smell for me and the Med3 Facial Cleanser for Oily Skin with DMAE and C-Lipoic Acids and the Exfoliating Cleanser with Glycolic Acid and Jojoba Wax Beads

The Facial Cleanser for Oily Skin smelled wonderully of Mandarin Oranges, so invigorating. The cleanser contains Mandarin, Rosemary and Chamomile extracts for cleansing and soothing while DMAE and C-Lipoic Acids gently diminish fine lines and wrinkles. It is a gle cleanser but if you’re looking for or used to a cleanser that foams a lot – this is not it but don’t let that discourage you. It is an excellent and mild cleanser that doesn’t leave your skin dry or tight. A 120ml tube retails for $35.00 and can be purchased online on the Med3 website

The Exfoliating Cleanser, which smells like papaya, contains glycolic acids that help to clarity and brighten your skin by dissolving skin cell buildup and Jojoba wax beads to polish and soften your face. I must warn you, if you have any scratches on your face, this will sting, so be careful. Other than that, my skin is always incredible to touch after, so soft, not a touch of dryness and very supple. Like the Cleanser for Oily skin, the 120ml tube also retails for $35.00 and can be purchased online on the Med3 website as well

As I am writing this, I just started using another Med3 product, the Skin Revitalizing Serum, which contains algae, green tea, meadowsweet extracts, amino-acids, copper, etc.

It states that it activates healthy cells to tighten and firm the skin while softening the look of fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles and also reduce the size of pores (this is the benefit that truly taps my interest). I wanted to try the cleansers first to see how my skin reacted to them before I tried the other products. I know products work better when all used together but I didn’t want one product to cloud the reaction of another on my skin. The Serum retails for $90 and comes in a 30ml tube.

I also hope to try out the following soon – Illuminate & Hydrate Moisturizer with Medical Grade Collagen and Titanium Dioxide and Revitalize & Hydrate Moisturizer and as a fan of micro-dermabrasion and peels (this goes back to my very enlarged pores), I would really like to try the Collagen Treatment which is said to be great for healing the skin after those procedures.
