Guerlain Ecrin 4 Couleurs Eyeshadows

Posted on

Guerlain’s Ecrin 4 Couleurs is composed of an interplay of 4 different textures: Iridescent, Matte,Velvet Satin & Metallic.

I want the Les Verts ( Green ) & Les Gris ( Beige ). Pity the packaging is not as aesthetic as Ecrin 6 Couleurs.

Brand Focus – Elizabeth Dehn

Posted on

After more than a decade of slathering, schmearing, and sorting out other people’s products, beauty writer Elizabeth Dehn set out to create her own. She knew what she didn’t want (chemicals, cheap fillers, false promises) and what she did (nutritious ingredients, effective formulas, pretty packaging). The result is a collection of skin-perfecting products that harness the restorative and anti-aging properties of 100% natural ingredients — free of preservatives, synthetics, and the other usual suspects.

Pure and simple yet utterly effective, BY ELIZABETH DEHN is modern-day beauty at its best.

This streamline collection has everything to keep your skin looks & feels its best, naturally. The products are gentle, pampering & delivers what their promise.

Face Spray – This refreshing alcohol-free formula infuses skin with antioxidants and preps it for moisture. Organic essential oils of Melissa and Sweet Orange instantly energize and increase circulation for a healthy glow.

Shea Cream – This velvety soft cream instantly replenishes and restores skin without clogging pores. Rich in Vitamin A, shea butter helps reverse sun damage, diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, and protects against free radicals. Rosehip Seed Oil rebuilds collagen and elasticity while Calendula calms irritation.

The Serum – Super-potent yet lightweight, this serum does it all: feeds, hydrates, and gives skin a gorgeous rosy glow. A luxurious blend of plant oils and essential fatty acids restores moisture and elasticity while Vitamin C and E help reverse sun damage and protect against free radicals.

 Ingredients : Unrefined Shea Oil, Jojoba Oil, Calendula Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil, Borage Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Almond Oil, St. John’s Wort Oil, Apricot Oil, Vitamin E, Organic Rose Absolute.

My complaint? They don’t ship outside US ! How annoying, and rude.

BareMinerals Deep Cleansing Foam

Posted on

There is a new way to keep out skin beautiful with the new BareMinerals skincare line from Bare Escentuals offering cleansers, moisturizers and facial treatments that contain no synthetic fragrances, artificial oils or parabens; all reasonable priced.

” A transformative new way of caring for your skin that’s simple, super-effective and incredibly easy to use. Powered by 100% pure RareMinerals Active Soil Complex, enjoy increased cell turnover, fewer fine lines and wrinkles and the famous bareMinerals Naturally Luminous glow. “

There are 3 different sulfate-free cleansers to help keep skin cleansed.

Purifying Facial Cleanser -Removes makeup dissolves impurities and rebalances skin for a soft, smooth complexion. Skin is left perfectly clean, instantly hydrated and renewed.

Deep Cleansing Foam -A luxuriously rich cleanser deep cleans pores and lifts away impurities.

Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser -This delivers a potent concentration of ingredients for a brighter, smoother complexion with noticeably smaller pores.

The Deep Cleansing Foam is a water-activated foam cleanser in a tube. In addition to the ActiveSoil Complex, there’s avocado oil, starfruit, and grape seed oil for added antioxidant protection and skin therapeutic benefits. Luxuriously foaming, this cleanser only requires a small amount ( pea size ) for a creamy, dense foam that cleans ( averagely ). The aroma is non cloying & rather acceptable for its price. However, it doesn’t rinse of completely and I could still feel some residue after vigorous rinsing. It doesn’t leave my complexion sparkly clean, instead, it can makes your skin taut if you’ve drier skin.

I think this cleanser is just an average, affordable cleanser that had been over raved. Due to its creamy foams, I find this excellent to be used as a shaving cream, leaving your skin smooth & firm ( I mean taut & toned ).

Ingredients : Water/Aqua/Eau, Stearic Acid, PEG-8, Myristic Acid, Glycerin, Potassium Hydroxide, Lauric Acid, Alcohol Denat., Butylene Glycol, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Propanediol, Polyquaternium-7, Soil Minerals, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil (Glycine Soja), Trisodium EDTA, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil (Lavandula Angustifolia), Lavandula Hybrida Oil (Lavandula Hybrida), Linalool, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil (Vitis Vinifera), Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil (Persea Gratissima), Punica Granatum Seed Oil (Punica Granatum), Phytosteryl/octyldodecyl Lauroyl Glutamate, Limonene, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Oil (Anthemis Nobilis), Averrhoa Carambola Leaf Extract (Averrhoa Carambola), Tocopherol.
