Ultimune Eye

Last year, Shiseido introduced Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate designed to boost the immunity of the skin in its defense against the signs of aging.

10 Jun

Original Skin Renewal Serum with Willowherb

If you’re a millennial, chances are a serum isn’t part of your skincare ritual yet.

Yet, the fact is that biological and physical changes do occur under the skin’s surface at this age. Whether it’s from late nights, stress, or sun exposure, skin can become uneven and dull resulting in a less radiant complexion.

Original Skin™ Renewal Serum with Willowherb by Origins was recently introduced as a high-performance solution to address the transition in quality of skin faced by today’s millennials. This super-serum helps skin look fresher and brighter, while it minimizes the appearance of imperfections.

The star ingredient in the serum is Willowherb, found in the Canadian prairies (yea Canada!), which has traditionally been used as an herbal supplement to treat medical ailments. This plant extract and other potent ingredients boost the skin’s overall quality and help soften the appearance of pores and imperfections.

What I'm Loving

Here are few beauty goodies that I’m loving lately. Let me know if you’ve tried any of these favorites or plan on it in the future.

1. Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight

This highlight from Clinique’s new contouring line contains pearlized, light-reflecting pigments that I’ve been lusting after for a long time. Use this sculpting crayon to add a luminous sheen to the top of your cheekbones or your Cupid’s bow to make your lips look more shapely. Find out more about the Clinique Hello Cheekbones collection here.

2. Cellex C High-Potency Serum

Vitamin C is one of the most powerful ingredients for fighting aging. Why? Vitamin C helps to produce collagen which gives elasticity to your skin.

When it comes to Vitamin C, nobody does it better than Cellex C. A pioneer in Vitamin C skin care, the Cellex-C complex contains highly concentrated levels of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) to enhance your skin. If you don’t believe me, check out photos of Mr. C. who tested the product on one side of his face.

The bottle comes with an attached dropper on the lid, which is a great feature for applying oil which can be messy. You can also use the dropper to mix this oil with your favorite moisturizer for more hydration.
