Posh Beauty Blog’s Favorite Things
October & Sept 2018
Beauty products we love!
By Carla Snuggs
Happy Fall! It's time for a roundup of some of the BEST beauty products tried by myself (or contributors) throughout the months of September and October. I loved discovering new brands and new products from the beauty brands that I already love
Dove Anti-Stress Micellar Water Body Wash and Beauty Bar
Dove has transferred the impressive credentials of micellar water technology to Dove Anti-Stress Micellar Water Body Wash and Beauty Bar, becoming the first to bring micellar water technology to the mass U.S. Body Wash market. This new range offers gentle care through the cleansing power of micellar technology with the nourishment of Dove. Dove Anti-Stress Micellar Water Body Wash and Beauty Bar refreshes skin while gently cleansing away pollutants and environmental stressors to reveal soft, smooth skin.
Bodyography Foundation Primer
We can’t survive fall in California’s heat without a great primer. Bodyography’s Foundation Primer is a weightless, anti-aging primer that fills in fine lines and wrinkles, prevents collagen breakdown, and gives the skin a silky smooth, long-lasting flawless base. Whether you have a fall wedding, a day by the pool or a bonfire on your agenda, you’ll never have to worry about a meltdown with Bodyography Foundation Primer on hand!
Scott-Vincent Borba Glittering Glow-Dots
Hard to resist in their nostalgic, colorful goodness, Scott-Vincent Borba Glittering Glow-Dots include a few good ingredients that the kid version decidedly does not, including a Hyaluronic Acid blend, responsible for water transport and tissue hydration between cells, and Vitamin C and Liquid Ionic Fruit concentrates, scientifically designed to soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while helping to increase skin’s luminosity.

Cynthia Rowland SkinRehab Roller
SkinRehab Roller micro-needling device is used to treat the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, enlarged pores and uneven pigmentation. The 580 titanium needles “disturb” the skin so that our body’s amazing healing capability kicks in to enhance the area that is in need of repair. In the past, these skin loving treatments had to be done in a doctor's office with a steep price tag, sometimes in the hundreds of dollars for one treatment. Recommended use is once a month. The roller comes in two needle lengths, 1.5mm for treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, and 2.0 for treating deeper lines and scarring. We recommend using the device horizontally, vertically and diagonally over the forehead, cheeks and chin with gentle movements. Be certain to disinfect the needles with alcohol before and after each use. The SkinRehab Roller retails for only $19.95, which includes instructions and a storage case. Shop: Cynthiarowland.com
FACTORFIVE Regenerative Serum
FACTORFIVE is a great serum to use with a dermaroller. Apply FACTORFIVE on clean, dry skin before rolling, then needle away. Immediately after, apply the serum again to give your skin what it needs to regenerate. FACTORFIVE Skincare was developed by Stanford scientists, using humanely harvested adipose human stem cells to create the purest, most beneficial growth factors. These human growth factors work like a lock and key with our own skin cell receptors to promote an increase in collagen, hyaluronic acid, elastin and skin proteins. With FactorFive, users give their skin exactly what it needs to reverse the five signs of aging:
Minimize the appearance of wrinkles
Reduce the visibility of sun spots
Regain skin tightness
Enhance skin thickness
Smooth and heal skin surface
EO Ageless Skin Care
EO Ageless Skin Care Organic Argan Face Oil is a certified organic serum is a blend of organic oils and botanical extracts that absorb quickly into skin and helps to replenish skin's radiance and softness. This versatile blend can be used as a hair serum, cuticle oil, and bath drops.

Bondi Sands Liquid Gold Self Tanning Dry Oil and Bodyography Inner Glow Stick
Finish and protect skin, seal in those precious oils, and soothe your senses with Apothecary Rose Body Milk from Hudson Made. This emollient rich formula features Shea Butter, Aloe, Sunflower Seed Oil, Calendula Oil, and Passion Fruit Seed oil for maximum hydration.
Color Up Therapeutics
Color Up Therapeutics is the first CBD-infused brand on the market with an advanced, comprehensive skin care line, and full facial protocol for both professionals and at-home care. The brand is based in Colorado and was founded by a team of three who have backgrounds in science and product formulation. I am loving the 25mg Dark Circle Reduction & Firming Eye Cream. Just a little bit dotted under the eye has done so much for the hyperpigmentation under the eye. In addition to skin care, Color Up offers daily sublinguals and CBD capsules for humans & animals.
Lexli is a premier line of aloe vera skin care. The Lexli 30 Day Starter Kit features travel-sized versions of the products included in their basic skin care regimen. One product included in this kit is a longtime customer favorite and an amazing glycolic acid exfoliator, AloeGlyC®. This really helps brighten up dull skin. But as a side note, if you have sensitive skin (and even if you don’t), use AloeGlyC® only once per day or even once every other day until your skin adjusts. Work up to twice daily as your skin gets used to it. Also try Revital-Eyes eye cream which will help to hydrate the skin around your eyes and reduce puffiness. For an added boost, keep it in the refrigerator.
Sally Hansen Color Therapy Modern Neutrals
Nude nails are definitely an accessory that enhances your complexion but finding the perfect shade can be overwhelming. Sally Hansen has introduced Color Therapy Modern Neutrals, a collection that offers deep jewel hues and flesh tones. The line consist of 6 hues in varying finishes that also help to restore nails without sacrificing luminous color:
Pink and Harmony
Keeva Organics, an all-natural, earth based skincare line. Their Original Tea Tree Acne treatment is the #1 Bestseller for Acne Treatment on Amazon! While I don’t have acne, I do have occasional breakouts. I’ve been using this acne treatment for a few weeks it seems to have prevent any hormonal breakouts that would normally occur. It’s professional strength, but no prescription required 100% results are guaranteed and there is no animal testing.
