Posh Beauty Blog’s favorite products September 2015
By Carla Snuggs
September was an exciting month! Firstly, it was my birthday month and I enjoyed celebrating with friends and family! And of course, I am over the moon happy with some new products I discovered that are making my life even more beautiful. Here is the latest monthly roundup of the some of the BEST beauty 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 Posh Beauty Blog’s favorites for September 2015.
Nexcare Acne Absorbing Covers
Nexcare Acne Absorbing Covers by 3M are known as the “Beauty Editor’s Secret”. Nexcare Acne Absorbing Covers work like sponges to absorb oil from acne blemishes, providing a comfortable and breathable solution for a variety of skin types. Although I used them at night, they are clear so they provide a discreet and mess-free alternative to creams and gel treatments, while helping maintain skin's moisture and integrity. They significantly minimized a pimple I had when used overnight and it was unnoticeable by the end of the next day.
KORRES Almond & Linseed Shampoo
As I am growing out my natural hair in a healthy way, I have been preventing breakage and split ends with KORRES Almond & Linseed Shampoo. It’s a natural cleansing shampoo formulated with organic extracts found only on the Greek island of Crete. Almond hydrates and linseed nourishes to help smooth and control damage. There’s also vitamin B3 and provitamin B5 which improve shine, feel, and flexibility.
Exuviance Bionic Oxygen Facial
Breathe new life into your skin with Exuviance Bionic Oxygen Facial. This is a fast fix for stressed skin, delivering a spa-quality treatment at home. How? The triple oxygenating blend works to restore radiance and brighten skin. A revitalizing infusion of molecular oxygen detoxifies and eliminates dullness, which promotes cellular energy and optimizes collagen. I like using this in-between facials, when I am traveling (as travel can wreak havoc on the skin), or whenever I wake up and my skin needs a serious pick-me-up. Amazing results! Simply massage onto damp skin and allow the invigorating molecules to work their magic.
Avon’s Skinvincible Collection
If you haven’t tried Avon in a while, I’m urging you take another look try the Skinvincible Collection. I’m loving Avon’s ANEW Clinical Skinvincible Deep Recovery Cream to repair the look of years of age damage. The formulation includes the world's 1st SmartRepair Technology, which diminishes the look of lines, wrinkles and sunspots. And who doesn’t love healthy-looking, youthful skin?
IT Cosmetics My Sculpted Face and Highlighters
My Sculpted Face, was most recently spotted on Khloe Kardashian’s vanity. The universal shades within the portable palette help you highlight and contour, drawing attention to your favorite features, or downplay those that aren’t. Use one of my favorite IT Cosmetics brushes, the Heavenly Luxe Complexion Perfection Brush, which was most recently used by makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic during July’s Master Class with the contour queen herself, Kim Kardashian.
Strobing, while not new, is a hot trend. For a look that’s all about highlighting, I love IT Cosmetics’ Hello Light Crème Illuminizer and the lipstick-sized Hello Light Luminizing Crème Stick. They’re infused with anti-aging peptides and hydrolyzed collagen. The highlighters look great on all skin tones, which is something I look for in my favorite beauty products.
Hip Appeal Hip Wraps
If you have an active lifestyle, I highly recommend Hip Appeal. This chic version of the fanny pack, is exactly what you need. A Hip Appeal Hip Wrap is great for workouts, travel, or just everyday activities when you’re on the go. Keep the important things like your ID, credit card, keys and any important documents at your side (safe) and your hands free AND look good doing it. With 35 color combinations to choose from, you can find a Hip Wrap that works with your wardrobe and keeps your belongings safely tucked away. They made the list because they’re made from the same quality fabric you have come to love from Lululemon. Also I love the design - there are 3 separate pockets, 2 with zippers and 1 that is hidden in the front seam so you have plenty of room to store your stuff! Hip Appeal is also handmade in the USA.
If you’re like me and drink a lot of coffee or tea, you know that your teeth can get stained. Tfees are reusable drinking straws that prevent teeth stains and lets you enjoy your favorite beverages without damaging teeth. A true beauty product, Tfees helps keep your teeth white, without having to use whitening strips. They fit perfectly into the opening of Starbucks cups as well! Tfees™ straws are proudly made in the USA of a high quality plastic and are BPA, estrogenic and androgenic free. This chic straw goes everywhere with me!
Aquinelle Toilet Tissue Mist
Traveling throughout the month of September, I was most asked about my Aquinelle Toilet Tissue Mist since I took my travel-sized bottle of it with me wherever I stayed. It’s an eco-friendly and money saving alternative to flushable wipes. FYI, flushable wipes don’t break down easily and over time can cause clogging and severe damage to sewer systems. Aquinelle transforms ordinary toilet paper into a cleanser with just one spritz. Aquinelle is available in four amazing scents including Citrus Burst, Island Mist, Ocean Breeze and Rainforest. Aquinelle comes in full-size bottles and travel size bottles. It’s made in the USA, hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested and safe for the whole family to use.
Sustainable Youth Ultra Creamy Cleansing Lotion
If you have sensitive skin, give it the total relaxation it craves with alasta® infused products from Sustainable Youth! All natural ingredient alasta® is a patent-pending, scientific discovery of the most potent, immunostimulatory and concentrated anti-aging ingredient derived from inside the rind of the Aloe Vera leaf. I tried The Ultra Creamy Cleansing Lotion. It gently and effectively cleanses the skin and removes all traces of makeup, leaving skin feeling super soft, hydrated and soothed. It also prepares the skin for maximum acceptance of all alasta®-based products in the line.
