The Benefits of Rare Minerals

If you love Bare Excentuals, by now I’m sure you’re wondering about Rare Minerals. But wearing face powder to BED? Hmm…maybe, if it transforms your skin overnight. According to the clinical studies, respondents reporting the following results:

  • 89% felt their skin was firmer and more resilient
  • 85% felt their skin texture had improved
  • 83% saw fewer imperfections and less visible pores
  • 82% saw clearer skin
  • 81% saw fewer discolorations
  • 68% saw a reduction in facial lines and wrinkles

Sure, studies are great, but will this night treatment work for me? I love Bare Minerals makeup so I thought I’d give this powder a try. To be honest, it was much more simple than my usual nighttime routine (bonus!) and the RareMinerals felt soft and light on my skin. It also made my skin look smooth and clear before bed (bonus #2!) Gotta love it when you look great before bed.

I’ve been using it for two weeks now and my skin feels and looks better. I notice a more even skin tone, less discoloration, and better clarity and texture. I feel I still need a light nighttime my moisturizer and an occasional blemish treatment for those pesky pores, but my skin is in much better condition since I’ve incorporated the Rare Minerals into my beauty routine. It’s pricey, but a little goes a long way. Definitely a Style Do!

Freeze 24/7: Wash On Your Sunscreen

Freeze 24/7 Ice Shield CleanserI recently tried Freeze 24/7 Ice Shield Facial Cleanser. It contains Sunscreen with an SPF 15 and UVA/UVB protection that will protect your skin from the sun just by washing your face. But won’t you wash it off by rinsing? No. The package reads, “A revolutionary innovative encapsulation technology allows Ice Shield™ to bind sunscreen to the skin while a mild cleansing system washes away dirt and impurities.” Worth a try? Yes!

Touted as the “world’s first” in preventative anti-aging skincare, all you need to do is wash your face to reap the benefits. We all know the dangers of those damaging rays of the sun by now, but it’s so easy to get lazy about sunscreen. Hey, I was going to wash my face anyway, so why not?

Obviously the application is easy, and it rinses off like an ordinary cleanser – without that greasy sunscreen feel. Bonus – protection without really trying AND the cleanser left my skin feeling soft and smooth. The ingredients include White Willow extract for skin clarity, White Tea extract for antioxidant properties and for added UV protection, and Coconut extract (mmmm, coconut) for skin hydration. Plus it’s got all of those perks I like to see: Hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, non-phototoxic and FDA approved effective as a sunscreen.

Extra Kudos: No animal testing, no animal by-products, and it is recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation as an effective UV Sunscreen.

You’ve got no excuse now! Shield your skin from those damaging and AGING rays, just wash on your protection Freeze 24/7 Ice Shield Facial Cleanser.

You Wanna Hold My Hand… NOW

Does the phrase “I want to hold your hand” make you think of those dry flakes? StriVectin to the Rescue! With a noticeable chill in the air this morning, I guess I cannot avoid the fact that spring is is creeping up slowly. I really enjoy this time of year, but my hands remain dry, dry, dry as if it’s still winter.

In an ongoing attempt to smooth out the rough patches and slough off those pesky flakes, I decided to try the StriVectin Hand Care Kit. Two easy steps promise to increase the skin’s cellular turnover, deliver optimal hydration, and reduce signs of aging. Hey, I just wanted to get rid of the dry flakes, but if it can do all this I’ll be a StriVectin customer for life!

First the ‘thermo-active’ exfoliant – superfine grains gently (yet effectively!) slough those flakes away leaving my now glowing hands smooth and soft. Following up with the StriVectin ultra rich hand cream provided that extra boost of moisture my skin desperately needed. My hands have never looked or felt better, and that noticeable improvement is after one use. I can’t wait to use it again in two days.
