Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex and Vitamin C Booster Review

No comments:




Give your skin a beauty boost! Mix Vitamin C+ Antiaging Booster with Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex before bed. The Vitamin C amps up the effects of the Evening Restorative Complex for a potent antiaging cocktail that acts as an evening transformer for all skin types.

- Evening Restorative Complex is clinically proven to improve overall skin texture, tone, and appearance
- 90% saw smoother skin after 4 weeks of using Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex
- Vitamin C+ Antiaging Booster amps up the effects of the Evening Restorative Complex, helping to fade the look of dark spots while improving firmness and smoothing wrinkles

The powerful Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA) Gluconolactone in Evening Restorative Complex decreases lines and wrinkles, evens skin tone and improves roughness and texture. Lactobionic Acid - a potent antioxidant - inhibits wrinkles from forming, plumps and firms the skin, and enhances clarity. This bionic blend of PHAs, along with botanicals and Vitamins A, C and E, delivers full-strength anti-aging benefits without drying or irritation, even on the most sensitive skin types.

The 100% pure active formulation of Vitamin C+ Antiaging Booster contains Vitamin C, an essential co-factor in collagen synthesis, known for its power to strengthen skin's matrix, improve firmness and smooth wrinkles. Plus, we've added our patented super antioxidant, Aceta-C™, to enhance the natural antiaging effects of Vitamin C, amplifying its skin-protecting and pigment-evening effects. Together, they help fade the appearance of unwanted dark spots, and strengthen skin's defenses against future discoloration and signs of aging. (What does 100% actives mean? The formula does not contain water or fillers, etc. All the ingredients are benefit ingredients.)



I have been using this for a week,  so far and I really like it.

I even got a compliment on my skin today by the lady who does my brows, she said my skin looked great.

As far the clinical claims I can't say because like I mentioned I have not been using these products long enough.

I can tell you that is really does plump up my skin and is really hydrating.

I will keep you posted as far as longer term benefits.

You can buy it here and at Ulta stores.

XOXO,

Vicki

Benefit Majorette Cream to Powder Blush Review and Swatches

No comments:







Benefit has a new product called "Majorette" which is a cream to powder blush.  

The packaging is super cute and the compact is very sturdy and it has a mirror. 

You can apply it with your fingers or a brush to the apple of your cheeks for a gorgeous pop of color.

Did I mention the shade is a beautiful peachy coral hue and it smells so good. Kind of a fruity scent but not over powering at all.

I think this is a universal shade , so have fun with it and apply it lightly or go bold and apply it heavy.

You can't really mess this color up and it is super easy to blend.

Retail is $28.00 and you can find it wherever Benefit cosmetics are sold.

XOXO,

Vicki

Stila Eyes Are The Window Shadow Palette in Spirit Review and Swatches

No comments:




Top- Kitten, Puppy, Pigalle
Bottom-Oasis, Jezebel, Barefoot

Top- Wheat, Golightly, Expresso
Bottom-Chinos, Slate, Pewter

Stila Cosmetics has come out with four new makeup palettes in celebration of their 20th Anniversary.

They are: Mind, Body, Soul and Spirit. 
The packaging is so elegant looking with the sleek gold, silver and rose gold compacts. 

I picked up Body and Spirit. Pictured above is Spirit (Stay tuned for Body, coming in a couple of days).

Spirit has a good mixture of matte and shimmer colors and will be great for fall.

I really like this palette, the colors are all pretty, my only minor complaint is that 1 or 2 colors were a little harder to work with.

 Retail is $49.00 each palette, but I was lucky enough to be able to buy it for $29.00 with a coupon I picked up from Beautycon. 

Bottom line: I think this is a great palette to have.

XOXO,

Vicki
