Posh Beauty Blog’s favorite beauty products for October 2014
By Carla Snuggs
This October, Posh Beauty Blog, discovered some very luxe and delicious beauty products! Also, it was Breast Cancer Awareness month, so I was exposed to even more wonderful beauty products than usual. Here is the latest monthly roundup of the some of the BEST products tried by myself (or contributors) throughout the month in the categories of beauty, health and lifestyle (that were not otherwise featured this month). Here are some favorites for October 2014:
Kinara Red Carpet Facial Kit
This is one of my favorite products for when you have a special event and you want to make your skin look amazing and photo ready! A-listers flock to Kinara Spa in Beverly Hills, home of the Red Carpet Facial, for Olga Lorencin’s high quality ingredients and simple regimens, which produce immediate results. But if you can’t make it there, get the Red Carpet Facial Kit to create the same results-driven facial treatment at home and on-demand. It’s just 3 easy steps (peel, neutralize, mask) to glowing skin! Well worth the splurge! ($145, Kinaraspa.com).
nügg Face Masks
nügg Beauty Masks are quick, convenient and cheap face masks that give your skin an extra boost this fall and winter! Each mask is crafted with all natural ingredients and possess a lightweight texture, gentle enough for daily use. I love using these with my nieces – they’re fun and easily portable for a DIY spa night on a girl’s night in! I love the nügg Exfoliating Face Mask with cranberry seed oil and jojoba beads ($2.99 or $11.99 for a pack of 4, Nuggbeauty.com).
NeriumAD Age-Defying Night Treatment and Day Cream
I love beauty products that can multi-task! NeriumAD Age-Defying Night Treatment and NeriumAD Age-Defying Day Cream are breakthrough age-defying products that address several skincare concerns at once, including the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, enlarged pores, and uneven skin texture. The night treatment and the day cream are formulated from scientific research and include the patented NAE-8 extract derived from the Nerium oleander plant which has powerful antioxidant properties ($165, MyNerium.com). Age Defying Night Treatment can also be purchased separately for $110.
Beessential Natural Body Care
Another fave this month is Beessential products. The Beessential name was born to convey the essential roles bees play in our environment and daily lives and their award-winning products from the beehive, are both natural and environmentally friendly. I love the Beecology Moisturizing Lavender and Bergamot SLS-Free Body Wash. It has Hemp, Honey and Aloe to moisturize and are made with pure, plant-derived ingredients and Vegetable Glycerin. They have a rich, luxe lather and cleanse with ultra-hydrating Coconut and Olive Oils ($8.99, Beessential.com) . I also tried the Relaxing Lavender Body Cream with Bergamot ($12.95, Beessential.com). It’s heavenly!
jane iredale City Nights Collection
I am loving the new City Nights Collection from jane iredale, which delivers radiant fall makeup inspired by the glamour and energy of a night out on the town. For eyes there’s a trio of matte pearl, shimmery port wine and toasted caramel shadows and gel eyeliners in flirtatious jewel tones (love the green and purple). For lips, there’s nourishing lipstick and gloss in pigmented shades of plum! Celebrate Limited Edition Eye Shadow Trio Palette, $35 // Purple and Green Jelly Jar Gel Eyeliner in Green and Purple, $28 (each) // PureMoist Lipstick in Katerina, $25 // PureGloss Lip Gloss in Kir Royale, $24 All the items from the collection can be purchased separately at janeiredale.com.
Gabriel Nude Lip Palette
One lipstick trend I love this fall is the nude lip. The secret to nude lips is to avoid anything too white, and it’s easy to find your perfect color with Gabriel Cosmetic Inc.'s Shades of Nude Lip Palette. Mix & match one or all of the 4 moisture rich lipsticks to create endless looks while keeping lips soft and tempting ($19.95, Gabrielcosmeticsinc.com).
Pur Minerals Air Perfection CC Cushion Compact Foundation
Pür Minerals has a new flawless foundation, the Air Perfection Cushion Compact. This game- changing foundation is a lightweight mousse that gives your skin sheer to medium coverage without looking oily or greasy. The natural Farm to JarTM ingredients provide skincare benefits to nourish your skin and improve your complexion. The blend of plant-based essential oils moisturizes skin, while the antioxidants and amino acids fight aging and damage. Pür Minerals does NOT test its products on animals ($36, PurMinerals.com).
Lavanila Laboratories The Healthy Body Butter
I love Lavanila Laboratories The Healthy Body Butter for instant hydration when my complexion is dull, dry and flakey. The Healthy Body Butter uses an advanced, restorative formula made with 100% natural ingredients and survival molecules to lock in a healthy dose of 30 essential vitamins and minerals. This is a great product for my skin in the fall when my eczema is sometimes at it’s worse. The body butters are free of parabens, Petrochemicals, Phthalates, Silicones, Propylene Glycol, Mineral Oils, Synthetic Dyes, Sulfates, Chemical Sunscreens, or Aluminum ($19, Lavanila.com).
Color Your Smile Lighted Lip Gloss
Color Your Smile Lighted Lip Gloss comes with a handy side mirror and light up cap, making application in dark places easy and convenient. The plumping agent will give you fuller lips gradually and this gloss will never feather or bleed. I especially love Seduction, a delicious, deep shade of wine. Great fall shades include Viva La Violet, Cocoa Bean and Crystal ($24, Gerardcosmetics.com).
