By Carla Snuggs
Happy Spring! I am so excited to share with you some of Posh Beauty Blog’s favorite from the month of March. These are some of BEST products tried by myself (or contributors) throughout the month of March in the categories of skincare and makeup that were not otherwise featured this month. What were some of your faves? Leave your comments below!
Murad Youth Builder Bodycare Products
It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of Murad products. The newest products launched in March are Murad Youth Builder Bodycare products. They are dermatologist developed, scientifically advanced and feature powerful ingredients designed to strengthen, firm, smooth and hydrate to rebuild skin’s youthful look and feel. I was so excited to be able to try: Detoxifying White Clay Body Cleanser, Firming Peptide Body Treatment, Rejuvenating AHA Hand Cream and Collagen Support Body Cream.
I especially loved the Detoxifying White Clay Body Cleanser: a stimulating cleansing clay that transforms into a rich lather, gently removing oil and surface impurities and utilizes Ginger Root Extract to encourage circulation, along with Safflower and Sunflower Oils to impart moisture. I also loved the Collagen Support Body Cream: an intensely hydrating body cream triples skin’s moisture upon application with a powerful blend of emollients that encourage collagen production to improve skin’s resilience and provide 24 hours of enhanced hydration* for a more supple and youthful appearance.

Freshends and Freshstarts
Freshends and Freshstarts are a pair of eco-friendly, must-have beauty products that keep savvy women fresh from cheek to cheek. These Eco-friendly, wallet-sized, chemical-free, and individually-packaged to stay fresh without drying out, Freshends® and Freshstarts® are truly essentials. Freshstarts are makeup remover toweletes that are super soft and highly effective at removing stubborn makeup. Posh Beauty Blog highly recommends Freshends, the luxurious flushable moist wipes. Freshends are alcohol free, and contain natural ingredients like Aloe, Vitamin E, Cucumber extract, and Chamomile. They are great for the gym, travel or any time you want to feel fresh on the go.

Osmosis Skincare Clear Activating Mist
Osmosis Skincare Clear Activating Mist is a unique frequency enhanced facial water. In a recent interview, supermodel Karolina Kurkova revealed her skincare secrets to staying hydrated and glowing while flying saying, “I like to have some sort of a spritzer, like Osmosis’s hydrating water....Lavender oil calms me down for the flight and the peppermint refreshes and awakens me when I have to go straight to work after [landing].” Adjusted harmonic frequencies in the Osmosis Skincare Clear Spray’s water molecules improve the physiology of the skin to condition, heal and refresh. Called a "magical water" by celebrity estheticians, skin care experts even use it to heal bruises and ease the razor burn and pain associated with ingrown hairs ($26, Dermstore.com).
Roloxin Lift: Instant Skincare
Roloxin Liftacts immediately to reduce the appearance of both wrinkles and pores, giving wrinkles a smoother look andtexture and more even skin tone. Roloxin Lift’s unique formulation combines a matrix of hydrophilic and hydrophobic silica particles, forming a latticework atop the skin to create a bright, smooth, luminous appearance. Roloxin Lift lasts approximately twelve hours, making your wrinkles appear smoother and your skin firmer and brighter. To use, simply wash your face with your preferred cleanser and leave the skin damp. Next, massage the product sachet for 10 seconds to activate Roloxin Lift, and then apply a thin layer of Roloxin Lift all over the face, avoiding the eyes and mucous membranes. Leave the product on skin for 7-10 minutes, or until it dries to a white powder. The white powder signals the drying process is complete. Rinse, pat dry and then apply your favorite moisturizer ($110 for 10 treatments or $270 for 30 treatments at Bergdorf Goodman, or online at roloxin.com, spacenk.com, cosbar.com, ronrobinson.com).
Instrumental Beauty Portable Pedicure
Instrumental Beauty Portable Pedicure is a motorized spinning pedicure roller that effortlessly and gently smoothes feet without the inconvenience of harsh metal scrapers or blades. The micro-mineral roller gently buffs away dead skin in seconds. I love Instrumental Beauty’s Portable Pedicure because it helps extend the life of my professional pedicure - It’s such an affordable way to keep your feet smooth and soft between treatments ($30.00, InstrumentalBeauty.com and select drugstores).
LiviaOne Daily Liquid Probiotics
Typically, probiotics are recognized for protecting the immune system and digestive health, but they also work topically to help the skin maintain its barrier and function to keep dermal cells healthy. When sprayed on the effected area, the 12-strains of symbiotic probiotics colonize to crowd out bad bacteria, fungus, yeast and other pathogens to help skin stay balanced, calm and more resistant to aging. As a bonus, this product is USDA Certified Organic and every ingredient comes from nature. I use Livia Daily Liquid Probiotics topical spray to treat monthly breakouts and reduce hyperpigmentation and as an anti-aging treatment ($12.95 and up, Livia123.liviaone.com)
Burt’s Bees Renewal Collection
Wrinkle-smoothing White Hibiscus and intensively hydrating Apple take center stage in Burt’s Bees Hibiscus and Apple Rejuvenating Complex. In the Renewal Face Care line, this remarkable interaction plumps up cells to help reduce the look of lines and wrinkles, improve firmness, and make skin appear smoother and more hydrated. Posh beauty Blog recommends:
Renewal Refining Cleanser ($9.99)
Renewal Intensive Firming Serum ($19.99)
Renewal Firming Night Cream ($19.99)
