Posh Beauty Blog’s Favorite Things
Brands and products I love!
By Carla Snuggs
It’s almost the end of summer as we look forward to fall, it’s time for a roundup of some of the best products tried by myself (or contributors) throughout the month of August. I loved discovering new brands and new products from the brands that I already love! Here are some of my favorite things!
BTS' Limited Edition Bio Capsulin “Love Me” Mask Set
Beautytap was HAND SELECTED by Korea's #1 POP sensation, BTS, and Korea's #1 sheet mask brand, Mediheal, to bring BTS' Limited Edition Bio Capsulin “Love Me” Mask Set to the US. This mask set LITERALLY sold OUT in 3 hours in Korea. Each "Love Me" heart-shaped capsule mask contains a bio-cellulose sheet that has been delicately rolled to preserve the pink oil capsules, containing jojoba oil (Jungkook's favorite ingredient), suspended in the serum. The purple Love Me Complex contains lavender, lilac, eggplant, and viola tricolor extracts which calm the skin and help give it a brighter appearance.
Each set contains 3 masks:
Green - Soothing (Tea Tree Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract)
Blue - Hydra (Hyaluronic Acid, Ceramide)
Purple - Toning (Ascorbic Acid, Glutathione)
Graffiti Collective Mixtape
Graffiti Collective’s Mixtape is a compilation of GC's four face mask minis that lets people try out each mask, multi-mask, take their fave masks on-the-go or gift GC. This will release on Sept 19, but I have already tried all 4!
Mixtape includes a .25 oz mini mask jar (enough for 1-2 masks) of each of the brand’s four masks:
Street Rose Smoothing Face Mask - reduces scars and makes skin smooth as a 90s slow jam
Clean Slate Purifying Face Mask - wakes up skin to be so fresh & so clean
Pure Grit Exfoliating Face Mask - exfoliates skin to be cleaner, fresher, stronger, better
Hustle & Glow Hydrating Face Mask - fills lines and takes your glow game higher
Mixtape will also be one of the first skincare products to include an augmented reality experience on its packaging - introducing viewers to Graffiti Collective, its mission to push the boundaries of what people expect from their skincare and its ongoing commitment to support emerging artists. GC partnered with Brooklyn-based abstract artists Morgan Winter and Kyle Szostek to bring art, music and technology together.

CELLrenew was created to fade scars and brown spots left behind after breakouts & sun exposure. It is Anti-aging AND Anti-acne, calming, and completely non-toxic. Collagen stem cells along with targeted botanical extracts and natural hyaluronic base have created the perfect formula to drastically improve the appearance of your complexion no matter what your skin is going through.
