Advances in the skincare industry happen fairly quickly, which means beauty products are constantly evolving. Many brands are going green or are eliminating harmful ingredients such as parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals and mineral oil. I love learning about new beauty products and am highlighting six beauty products for summer 2018. [Our giveaway of a Vichy Aqualia Thermal Gel Cream has closed…congrats to Shari Dalton!]
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Gel Cream
Vichy has introduced the new redefined Aqualia Thermal Gel Cream to contain only 20 ingredients of 97% natural origin, which is all the more reason to love this brand. Aqualis Termal Gel Cream contains mineral salts, naturally-sourced Hyaluronic Acid and plant sugar mannose to lock in moisture. You’ll be happy to know that Vichy Aqualia Thermal Gel Cream contains no parabens, no mineral oil, and no silicone. I love how light and cooling the gel cream feels on my face. When it’s really hot and humid, I want a moisturizer that doesn’t make my skin perspire so Vichy Aqualia Thermal Gel Cream is perfect for me to wear on those hot summer days.
Winky Lux Flower Balm in Pink is one of the brand’s best sellers and I can see why. The lipstick applies clear and turns to the perfect shade of pink based on your skin’s PH levels. I love how the lipstick contains a real chrysanthemum and has a coconut scent. This lipstick appeared as a very light pink on my lips – perfect for when I want a natural look with a hint of colour on my lips. Winky Lux Flower Balm in Pink, $18, will be available at Murale and at Beauty Boutique in August 2018.
VENeffect Skin Calming Mist
I have sensitive skin which can become inflamed in high heat conditions. That’s why I have included VENeffect Skin Calming Mist in my six beauty products for summer 2018. This mist is made with phyto-nutrients, which are plant-based phytoestrogens. These phytoestrogens have anti-aging qualities and restore balance to skin that is experiencing monthly and/or postmenopausal hormonal changes. I love that I can give my face a pick-me-up during the afternoon by spraying a few spritzes of VENeffect Skin Calming Mist. You can also apply VENeffect Skin Calming Mist in the morning under your moisturizer. VENeffect Skin Calming Mist is $78 for 100 ml and is available at Murale and Beauty Boutique.
Berry Rich Face & Eye Cream from Graydon Skincare
The Berry Rich Face & Eye Cream from Graydon Skincare provides your skin with vitamins A & E, omega fatty acids and antioxidants. This is a great cream for mature and/or sensitive skin, which makes it ideal for my skin. The cream contains Cranberry Seed Oil and Blueberry Seed Oil for anti-aging and a vegan probiotic extract that reduces the skin’s thickness. Although it has a rich texture, the cream absorbs well into my skin. This superfood skincare product contains no fillers, petrochemicals, phthalates, artificial fragrances or colours. Berry Rich Face & Eye Cream is $38 ml for 50 ml. You can purchase it at Graydon Skincare.
Kat Burki Lift and Fill Form Control Marine Collagen Gel
Kat Burki is a luxury skincare brand with many celebrity devotees including Jennifer Hudson, Julianne Moore, Behati Prinsloo, Amber Valletta, Liv Tyler and Alison Williams. Kat Burki Lift and Fill Form Control Marine Collagen Gel provides amazing restorative benefits to the skin. Containing pure algae Keratin, this marine collagen gel lifts and plumps up expression lines and increases the skin’s own collagen production. I love the texture of this collagen gel on my face. It is light while still providing hydration. It also smells wonderful. Kat Burki Lift and Fill Form Control Marine Collagen Gel is $185 for 1 oz. and is available at Murale and on Beauty Boutique.
The Eve Lom Cleanser is one of the brand’s highest-selling products. The cleanser contains four plant oils, and cocoa butter, which provide exfoliation and conditioning while providing deep cleaning for the skin. This cleanser is a balm so you have to massage the cleanser into your face and neck for it to work. The cleanser includes a Muslin cloth that you use to remove the cleanser. They suggest repeating this action up to three times for a true deep cleaning. I love the natural scent from the Clove, Eucalyptus, Hops and Egyptian Chamomile Oils. Eve Lom Cleanser is $65 for 50 ml and will be available at Murale in September 2018.
