L’Oreal Skin Expert Pure-Clay Cleansers

Loreal-Paris-BMAG-Article-The-Right-Way-To-Remove-A-Clay-Mask-D

Literally, these are the most exciting cleansers I’ve seen in a while.  I think we’re all over the oil cleansing, the balm cleaners, the charcoal masks, but these are different.

L’Oreal took their immensely popular clay masks and turned them into cleansers.  Each cleanser has a significant amount of clay in it, but it’s in a formula that emulsifies easily with water and actually cleans your skin.

There are three kinds: Exfoliating and Refining (the salmon-coloured one), Purifying and Mattifying (mint-coloured), and Energizing and Brightening (charcoal).

L’Oreal  Pure Clay Glow Scrub

the Pure Clay Glow Scrub is a thick scrub that helps to cleanse, brighten and exfoliate the skin and remove dead skin sells and sebum. It includes Red Algae which is known for its brightening properties and is better than the mask version as it has natural exfoliating micro-beads inside to really get into the pores and clean them.

L’Oreal Pure Clay Purity Wash

The Pure Clay Purity Wash aims to cleanse, purify and mattify the skin as it has the three pure clays inside plus Eucalyptus and is thick in texture to help gently clean the face and is easy to rinse off.

L’Oreal Pure Clay Detox Wash

The Pure Clay Detox Wash had high expectations as the Detox Mask was my favourite out of the three. This includes Charcoal to help cleanse, clarify and detoxify the skin and is loose in texture to make it easy to use. Finally,

These are excellent options for summer cleansers simply because they have an ingredient that’s amazing at getting rid of oil – kaolin clay – and you don’t have to leave them on your skin for a long time to get the full benefit of the clay!

The L’Oreal Skin Expert Pure-Clay Cleansers are available in drugstores now.

New Vichy Ideal Sport Ultra-Light Refreshing Lotion SPF 60

Vichy Ideal Sport Ultra-Light Refreshing Lotion SPF 60.png

New sunscreen technology means that no longer are sunscreens sticky, greasy, or heavy on the skin.  Instead, they’re light and wearable, with the best formulas being suitable on the face or the body.

All that is definitely true of Vichy’s new Ideal Sport Ultra-Light Refreshing Lotion in SPF 60. Formulated to be light and refreshing, with technology that works on wet or dry skin, it’s the sunscreen that’s perfect for every day use, but even more suitable for the times that you’re out and about. It’s water and sweat resistant for up to 80 minutes, and because it works on wet skin too, you don’t have to dry off before applying it.

There’s no white cast or residue and even when I use this sunscreen on my face, it sinks in easily and makeup goes on top without any issues. If you’re looking for skin protection that’s all-encompassing and easy to wear, then this is a fantastic option. Also, the European and Cannadian versions of Vichy sunscreens contain Mexoryl XL, which is an ingredient that helps the sunscreen be more photostable. That means that it’s less likely to disintegrate in the sun.

Vichy Ideal Sport Ultra-Light Refreshing Lotion SPF 60 is available now.

 

 

Vichy Mineral 89

Vichy Mineral 89 -Hyaluronic-Acid-Moisturizer-Homepage-Banner-Vichy

Vichy, one of the leading European pharmacy brands, has just rolled out a new product – Vichy Mineral 89, hyaluronic acid face moisturizer. As its name suggests, Mineral 89 is a strong hydrating product formulated with Vichy’s miracle-working mineralizing thermal water from the French volcanoes.

But what kind of water is this? In a nutshell: anything but your basic H20. Vichy thermal water flows warms over 4000 meters underground, and flows through the thousand-year-old magmatic volcanic rock, where it picks up no less but 15 skin-strengthening minerals including iron, potassium, calcium, and manganese. Yes, most of the pharmacy brands offer their versions of skin-soothing mists and thermal waters, but Vichy’s one comes with a major advantage! Not only it soothes the skin, but also helps to rebalance pH and protects from external aggressors, like pollution and weather.

Vichy Mineral 89 Video

Vichy’s mineralizing thermal water is present in all of its products, and everyone, no matter age or skin type, women or men, can benefit from using it. The newly launched product, Mineral 89, contains the highest concentration of this skin-soothing, hydrating water, which makes it the perfect addition to any skin care routine.

Vichy Mineral 89 is announced as a new generation moisturizer, a product that combines 15-mineral rich water with hyaluronic acid to fortify the skin and make it more resilient to internal and external stressors. No less than 89% of this product is Vichy’s legendary mineralizing thermal water, which fortifies the skin and strengthens its moisture barrier. In combination with hyaluronic acid, the water hydrates and plumps the skin. As a result, skin feels more hydrated and toned, radiating with a healthy glow.

Sephora Is Launching a Nationwide Free Beauty Class for Women and Men with Cancer

11-sephora.w710.h473.2x.jpg

Sephora just announced that it would be adding an empowering and free beauty class exclusively for people living with cancer. The class is titled ‘Brave Beauty in the Face of Cancer’ and will join the retailer’s ‘Classes For Confidence’ program.

According to a press release, each 90-minute class will offer personalized skin care tips, possible solutions to any beauty-related problems and makeup how-tos, students may have stemming from their battle with cancer. Students will learn a variety of skills to apply masterful eye makeup, achieve natural-looking brows, and (much) more. Each student will also receive their unique Color IQ to learn which products work best for their complexion. While putting together this curriculum, Sephora sought the advice of its employees who also had or still have cancer.

We are harnessing the fun upbeat environment of our stores and attention of our experts, to create a safe place for participants to learn and play with beauty, ask questions, and connect with others going through a similar situation.

Corrie Conrad, Sephora’s Senior Director of Social Impact and Sustainability

Not only that, but Sephora employees nationwide will also be wearing a lavender lapel pin as a gesture of solidarity, given that lavender is the color used to symbolize awareness for all cancers.

Because Sephora wants to ensure that each attendees needs are fully met, they’re keeping class size super-small. No more than 12 people will be able to sign up for a session, and for every three-four participants in attendance there will be a coach present to provide additional hands-on help.

Men are also welcome, hair loss and skin effects from cancer treatments know no gender, and we want to be a safe space for all of our clients.

Corrie Conrad

Going forward, the larger ‘Classes For Confidence’ program will work with different nonprofit organizations to help support its many shoppers. Another class is aimed at helping women and men with workforce reentry and will give students the tips they need to create everyday looks for work.

‘Brave Beauty in the Face of Cancer’ will be available in 50 locations starting April 9. Click here to locate available classes near you.

Garnier Micellar Water in Travel Sizes

 

Garnier-SkinActive-Travel-Size-All-in-1-Micellar-Cleansing-Water-Travelsizes-group

So Micellar Water – it’s actually such a controversial product among skincare specialists. Some people really hate it because they don’t think that it really gives your skin a good clean, and others can’t live without it because it’s so easy to use. Micellar Water looks and feels like regular water, but performs as a makeup remover. Put some on a cotton pad, and rub it over your face and it’ll easily take makeup off, leaving a bit of moisturizer behind, which is why it’s thought of as a skincare product too.

Garnier has one of the best Micellar Waters out there – I find that it really does take off makeup easily, even eye makeup, without stinging your eyes. That’s better than the leading French Pharmacy brand I’ve tried. It comes in two variations – All-in-One and Waterproof – both are excellent.

Garnier Micellar Water is available as 400ml flacons. Now Garnier also brings us handy travelsizes of 100 ml, wich are perfect for holidays, weekend break, or to put in your gym bag to help you take off your mascara, ohh…. and you can buy a new one when finnished, or refil it from the large size! They vailable right now.

At first glance, it doesn’t really seem appealing to rub a rosy-tinted moisturizer all over your face, even if you are into colour correction, but my skin needs a moisturizer so I thought I would give this a shot.

The upside is that the rosy tint didn’t really show up on my tan skin – I tried it on my hands first, and when there was just some shimmer, I decided to go ahead and put this all over my face. Maybe those who are very fair will notice more of a tint, but I definitely didn’t and the shimmer was actually flattering and not too obvious.

L'Oreal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Cream2

The cream actually has a bit of a waxy, almost whipped texture, that needs to be warmed up in your hands and then you can smooth it into your skin. The moisturizing factor along with the shimmer really makes your skin look glowy. The cream is whipped and filled with moisturizing ingredients such as squalene, glycerine, and mineral oil. It’s not a list of ingredients that I look for, since I like Hyaluronic Acid a lot for my skin, but I have found that super dry skin patches really benefit from a moisturizer that has mineral oil in it.

I find that it sinks into my skin pretty quickly and that makeup and sunscreen layer on top easily. L’Oreal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Cream is availble now.
