Purederm’s Make-Up Cleansing Tissues

26 Feb

Purederm Cleansing Tissue

While a nice deep facial cleansing to wash alway all the makeup and debris of the day is the most effective, a pre-moistened cleansing cloth is a godsend in a pinch.

I’ll admit it! I’m lazy! And there are some nights where the thought of going through my preferred cleansing routine seems like a form of torture. But luckily, cleansing cloths can come to my skin’s rescue! No water, no rinsing needed.

Purederm Cleansing TissuesPurederm’s Make-Up Cleansing Tissues from Korea are unbelievably effective, non-drying, and unbelievably cheap. All makeup is wiped away in a few swipes. Mascara might require more tugging than a swipe, but off it comes in the end, with zero stinging. Skin feels super clean for a wipe, and I can breathe easy that I won’t be met with clogged pores or a pimple explosion in the morning.

So where do you find them? Sadly, not at your local drugstore. But they are available at beauty supply stores and online, in a variety of delicious scents, thanks to the specific extract each type includes. Aloe, cucumber, rose, green tea, and lavender. They feel soft on the skin and they won’t shred when you put them to work. And their resealable packaging lasts longer than many other brands, keeping them perfectly moistened. No parched tissue here that require extra friction to get your eyeliner off.  You’ll be catching zzzs in no time.

Available for $2.80 for a pack of 30 tissues

T. LeClerc – Loose Powder in Orchidee

14 Feb

T. LeClerc Loose Powder Orchidee

Winter sallowness got you down? Does your skin need a pick me up in general? This excessively finely milled loose powder, brightens the skin beautifully, while seemingly erasing flaws. The pale pink shade might look scary in the tin, but it’s a super power at neutralizing yellows and wiping out exhaustion. Say good-bye to pores and hello to well-rested glowing skin!

The French makeup line, T. LeClerc was born in 1881 and in this competitive modern day market, it continues to thrive thanks to its superior products. Orchidee is one my most beloved. First, I  sweep this very lightly over my face with a fan brush. Then I apply an extra layer over my cheeks for the most natural flush. It makes a gorgeous blush. Then I love to add some around the outer edges of my face for glow and definition. Finally, I gently buff it for a second with my beauty blender sponge (but any sponge will do). Another great multi-tasker, Orchidee also works as an subtle eye brightener, counteracting those dark circles.

Besides being in love with the quality, texture and tone of this powder, I’m obsessed with the packaging. The gorgeous classic tin is oh-so-deliciously French and the fine net lets you get just the right amount of powder on your brush. And the best part, the rice powder base makes this a friend to the most sensitive of skins.

MAC Fix +

19 Sep

Want a more polished finished look? Want you makeup to stay on longer?  Reinvigorate it after a long day? Or maybe you want to just add a little extra glowy radiance?

Well, thanks to MAC, this vitamin and mineral infused spray does it all! Spray it at least 6 inches from your face to freshen up your skin or makeup with some extra skin softening hydration.

But my favorite function is a subtle but impactful one. It makes my makeup look not only polished but more natural, for hours on end! I lightly spray it on and then use a sponge to blot it and work it in. The results are set makeup that doesn’t look like I’m wearing makeup anymore. Foundation looks dewy, not cakey. Cheeks look radiant and healthy. And it also doubles as a great mister for generally refreshing and fortifying your skin.

MAC Fix + is obsession worthy for goof proof and flawless makeup!

Plus, it comes in a handy travel size!

From the MAC site:

An aqua-spritz of vitamin and minerals, infused with a calm-the-skin blend of green tea, chamomile, cucumber, topped off with the fresh, natural, energizing scent of Sugi. Adds radiance, finishes makeup. Spray it on. Skin drinks it up!

Ingredients:

Water, glycerin, butylene glycol, cucumber fruit extract, chamomilla, camellia leaf extract, tocophryl acetate, caffeine, panthenol, hydrogenated castor oil, fragrance
