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.

 

Topicals Skincare Seeks to Transform the You Feel About Skin

Topicals Skincare Seeks to Transform the You Feel About Skin

For as long as beauty trends have existed, if you don’t have flawless skin, you were deemed as ugly. Social Media filters are popular for a reason. But what if a skincare brand made you rethink the way you feel about skin? Topicals Skincare, a revolutionary new skincare company seeks to transform the way you feel about your skin. They are making the treatment of stigmatized skin conditions synonymous with the luxury and fun of self-care. These new skincare launches boast targeted solutions for eczema and hyperpigmentation.

Topicals Skincare Seeks to Transform the You Feel About Skin

Did you know one in four Americans lives with chronic skin conditions? Add in costly prescriptions and targeted skincare products and you’re left with skin issue sufferers who just “learn to live with it.” 23-year-olds Olamide Olowe and Claudia Teng, Topicals Skincare founders, are women of color who’s lived with conditions like severe eczema and post-barbae folliculitis. They grew up settling for products that didn’t really serve them or represent how the condition appeared on their skin. For this reason, Topicals Skincare was born out of necessity.

Topicals Skincare launched with two products, Like Butter ($32.00), a hydrating mask for dry, distressed, and eczema-prone skin, and Faded ($36.00), a serum for discoloration and dark spots. For the past week, we’ve been using the Topicals Skincare Faded Brightening & Clearing Gel to get rid of the discolorations and dark spots on our cheeks.

Topicals Skincare Seeks to Transform the You Feel About Skin

We are currently in the midst of our skin purging all the bad stuff out. We’re well on our way to healing our scarred skin. Darker skin tones can be plagued with stubborn marks, scars, and spots; and Faded is gentle enough for those experiencing hyperpigmentation and erythema. It goes on like a nightly moisturizer and is great for those whose skin can’t tolerate more aggressive acids; plus it has the bonus of not bleaching your non-hyperpigmented skin. Scent-wise, it does smell sulfuric, which takes some getting used to. But if you’re familiar with the amazing Sulphur Springs natural mud baths in St. Lucia that thousands flock to for its skin healing properties, you won’t mind the scent.

Topicals Skincare Seeks to Transform the You Feel About Skin

We haven’t tried it yet, but the Topicals Skincare Like Butter Hydrating Mask is great for dry, sensitive, and/or eczema-prone skin. This thick, whipped mask is packed with powerful botanicals for skin so smooth it’s like butter. Like Butter helps to strengthen your skin’s moisture barrier; it soothes irritation, inflammation, and smooths dry, textured skin. It’s creamy without feeling greasy or heavy and works great for flare-ups on other areas of the body as well.

Both products are fragrance-free, dye-free, vegan, and cruelty-free. Plus they do good too. Topicals donate 1% of their profits to important mental health movements, to help raise awareness around the connection between mental health and skin health.

Eyetitude Helps Erase Dark Circles, Puffiness, and Crepey Loose Skin

Eyetitude Helps Erase Dark Circles, Puffiness, and Crepey Loose Skin

They say “The eyes are the window to the soul,” but sometimes those windows need a little sprucing up. Some of you may have experienced this, but sometimes, even after showering, our eyes still feel heavy or puffy. We usually rely on our showers to “wake us up” but some days call for extra help. This is where Eyetitude and their amazing eye care products come in. This fantastic skincare brand focuses solely on your eyes and repairing the most delicate and fragile area on your face, your eyes. Their products are especially fantastic to use after spending time in the sun or if like us, your eyes still don’t “feel awake” after a shower.

Eyetitude Helps Erase Dark Circles, Puffiness, and Crepey Loose Skin

Eyetitude boasts seven eye care products: ProZerve Peptide Cream ($75.00), FixZer Instant Eye Repair, EyeZ-Luronic Serum ($65.00), NoCrowZ Retinol Eye Cream ($79.00), MicroNeedZ Eye Patches ($10.00), IllumineyeZ Rejuvenator, and the RevitaleyeZ 4-in-1 Facial Wipes ($15.99). We had the pleasure of indulging our tired peepers to the full benefits of two of their products; the Eyetitude FixZer Instant Eye Repair and the IllumineyeZ Rejuvenator (which we now cannot live without).

IllumineyeZ Rejuvenator, $129.99

Eyetitude IllumineyeZ Rejuvenator

Remember when we said that sometimes, even after a shower, our eyes still felt heavy and puffy? Well, apparently this superb beauty tool is exactly what we needed. Our eyes have never felt so “alert”. On those brief moments we ventured outside for food, we’ve been told we look so bright-eyed; a compliment we haven’t heard in ages. Here’s why you will love it as much as we do. This anti-aging massager negative ion reduces fine lines, improves dark circles, eye bags & restores vitality. The IllumineyeZ Rejuvenator combines 10,000 times/minute high frequency vibration massage with heat and red LED light to do the following:

*Repairs damaged cells
*Enhance cell activity
*Promote the skin’s collagen and elasticity
*Tightens the skin
*Promotes blood circulation whereby reducing dark circles & under-eye bags
*Increases maximum absorbability of your favorite creams and serums

When you use the Rejuvenator with your eye serums and creams, it helps for maximum product absorption into the delicate skin around the eyes.

FixZer Instant Eye Repair, $75.00

Eyetitude FixZer Instant Eye Repair

Eyetitude’s FixZer Instant Eye Repair is a pro strength formula that instantly reduces puffiness, dark circles, and fine lines, delivering a brighter lifted look. It consists of anti-inflammatory ingredients such as Hesperidin Methyl Chalcone, a flavonoid found in citrus fruits that targets capillaries under eyes. These capillaries are responsible for dark circles, swelling, and puffiness that can plagued our eyes. Light-diffusing mineral pigment reflects and emits light further concealing imperfections. Chrysin, a flavonoid found in the blue passion flower, synergistically works with other ingredients to add another layer of power, deflating puffiness and dark circles; leaving eyes looking refreshed and well-rested.

With continuous use of Eyetitude’s range of eye care products, your eyes can truly be the windows they were meant to be.

Celebrate National Clean Beauty Day with Juice Beauty

Celebrate National Clean Beauty Day with Juice Beauty

As awareness surrounding climate change and the state of our environment grows, more consumers are making more conscious choices about the products they purchase. While all industries have production techniques that negatively affect the environment, these practices in the beauty industry also have the potential to adversely impact your personal health. To combat these negative impacts, the clean beauty movement highlights brands and products that use sustainably and ethically sourced ingredients that benefit your health. National Clean Beauty Day is a day dedicated to this movement, showcasing products in the beauty industry that boosts the health of the body and the environment.

Celebrate National Clean Beauty Day with Juice Beauty

July 15 is National Clean Beauty Day and encourages all consumers who partake in the beauty industry to choose products that use plant-based ingredients. This inaugural day of awareness comes from Juice Beauty, an antioxidant-rich skincare and plant-based makeup brand that has been pushing back against the status quo within the beauty industry for years.

The goal of the day is to not only make consumers aware of the efficacy of plant-based ingredients but other beauty brands as well. Many beauty products are full of unnecessary ingredients that harm the environment as well as consumers. There’s a wide range of conventional chemicals that hide within the long list of ingredients on the backs of beauty products. Some of the most common chemical ingredients include acrylates polymers (plastics), artificial and synthetic dyes, benzoyl peroxide, and carbon black. These ingredients often come from petroleum products and can contain potential cancer-causing carcinogens.

Celebrate National Clean Beauty Day with Juice Beauty

Juice Beauty bases the formulations for their products around antioxidant-rich, certified organic, botanical juices rather than petroleum. On top of this healthy base, Juice Beauty chemists then add powerful plant-based ingredients to achieve effective age-defying and blemish-clearing skincare. The brand has vowed that they will never use an ingredient that is potentially harmful to humans, animals, or the planet.

Juice Beauty's Karen Benhke

Entrepreneur and wellness expert Karen Behnke was inspired to make this vow and start Juice Beauty after looking more closely at the ingredients in her own beauty products. She had become pregnant with her first child at the age of 40 and was concerned about skin absorption. She found that products from both inexpensive drug stores and expensive department stores contained potentially harmful ingredients. As Behnke changed her personal care regimen to be cleaner, she also wanted to make an impact in the wider beauty industry. That’s how Juice Beauty got its start, nearly 15 years ago.

Now, Juice Beauty makes clean beauty products that yield better results than conventional, chemical-based products. The company even has an organic farm in Sonoma County, California to ensure that its ingredients are all-natural and ethically-sourced. The farm spans 20 acres and is solar-powered, further speaking to the brand’s commitment to sustainability. Solar power in the United States offsets more than 70 million metric tons of carbon dioxide each year, which is akin to planting nearly 1.2 billion trees. This allows the Juice Beauty farm to have a positive impact on the environment rather than a negative one while growing organic ingredients that have higher antioxidant performance.

Juice Beauty is also committed to sustainability in its manufacturing and packaging practices. Using recycled boxes and bags to ship goods is the best way to promote eco-friendly transportation and Juice Beauty does just that. The company uses 100% FSC paper, which is paper that has been responsibly harvested, for outer packaging product boxes and 52% FCS for shipping boxes. Nearly one-third of full-size Juice Beauty products utilize sustainable glass and the company also uses recycled plastic from the U.S. rather than shipping it from other countries, thereby reducing the negative environmental effects of international shipping.

As a pioneer of the clean beauty movement, Juice Beauty hopes that National Clean Beauty Day can inspire companies and consumers alike to seek clean, green ingredients for their beauty products. If you’re trying to clean up your beauty routine, start by looking locally. About 46% of all searches on Google are for a local business or service and through this type of search, you may be able to avoid the environmental impacts of shipping while supporting a small business in your community. If there are no clean alternatives locally, make a commitment to only support brands like Juice Beauty that are equally committed to creating products that help the environment rather than harm it. With just a little bit of research on your part, you can use your power as a consumer to create a positive impact on the wider world as well as your own health.

Are Hand Sanitizers the Next Big Thing in Skincare?

Are Hand Sanitizers the Next Big Thing in Skincare?

We all know how essential hand sanitizers have become. It is now the most important personal care item to have in your bag. While we’re reaching for this essential product more and more during this pandemic, we definitely see continued use after Covid-19 is long gone. We anticipate lots of growth in this category, especially as on its own, hand sanitizers are very drying and have quite a very overpowering scent.

Are Hand Sanitizers the Next Big Thing in Skincare?

Of course, changing hand sanitizers a bit to be more skin-friendly is the next logical step; a step that will most likely move this personal care item to the skincare category. Some brands are already taking this step. We see the addition of ingredients to moisturize the hands and as well as making hand sanitizers more nose-friendly.
