This is where I talk about some of the beauty products I've been loving lately...  anti-pollution products have been in rotation because it the effects of environmental stress is a concern I've been looking to address.

Eva NYC Mane Magic 10-IN-1 Primer*
I've always been a fan of multi-function beauty products and Eva Mane Magic 10-in-1 Primer is a product that simplifies my styling routine. I really like how it works to detangle and nourish while leaving my  hair smooth, shiny and frizz free. I can't tell if it has reduced drying time and I'll defnitely take the protection it's supposed to offer against thermal, environmental and UV damage.

Huxley Brightly Ever After Essence
I always have a brightening product in my skincare routine and I'm currently using this essence. Cleanly formulated with prickly pear seed oil, niacinamide, odeetox, glutathione and bisabolo, this  highly concentrated brightening essence works to restore radiance while protecting skin from environmental aggressors. The beneficial effects are supposed to compounded with continued use. This product has a light, silky texture with a hydrating feel and it absorbs easily. I've been using it with my Vitabrid C12 FACE Brightening Powder for the past month and I've seen a visible difference in overall luminosity as well as a a lightened appearance in my freckles.
$58 at Nordstrom 

Coola Full Spectrum 360° Sun Silk Drops SPF 30
I picked this up during the recent Sephora VIB Sale and have been using it every day. These innovative drops are made with an advanced clean, organic formula that provides full spectrum protection from the sun, environmental toxins as well as digital overexposure. HEV light and infrared light from our phones, tablets and computers. can cause premature signs of aging. Dispensed via a dropper, this lightweight liquid can be used alone or mixed with any skincare or makeup product. I like how it does this without changing the integrity of that product. It is hydrating with an invisible finish and  I love how it acts as an HEV shield while also protecting my skin from the sun. I use this alone on makeup free days and and usually mix it with my Charlotte Tilbury Brightening Youth Glow when I'm wearing makeup.

OSKIA Eye Wonder Nutri-Active Eye Serum*
I usually use eye creams but now I'm wondering why I haven't used an eye serum before. OSKIA Eye Wonder is a super-active eye serum that can be used in the morning and evening. Formulated with OSKIA’s unique dual-approach and signature MSM repair & regenerating complex, plant bioactives like apple stem cells and rose water hydrate the sensitive under-eye area; hyaluronic acid plus vitamins B3 and E reduce puffiness, encourage cellular health, smooth the appearance of lines, even skin tone, and increase clarity and brightness. Lightweight and nourishing, a little goes a long way with this product and I feel like my eye area has been smoother and brighter since I've started using it.
$75 at Barneys NY, Cult Beauty and OSKIA London

YUNI Glow Between Jelly Micro Mist*
I love a good facial spray especially if it also has skincare benefits. Packed with adaptogens and protection from environmental stressors, the YUNI Glow Between Jelly Micro Mist provides a layer of defense against pollution as well as a gorgeous hint of golden glimmer. Formulated with ethically sourced, fair trade organic ingredients like licorice root to reduce dark spots and hibiscus oil to improve skin tone and texture, this mist is lovely to use and I can feel good about using it. The shimmer is very subtle, imparting a natural glow. It works well as a setting mist or a refresher.
$25 available August 2018

The Coola drops sounds brilliant and I'll need to add that into my list to try. Oskia is another brand that I hope to explore more this year, I just need to save up for it.

The Coola Full Spectrum ... SPF 30 sounds really lovely. I do love the OSKIA brand and would like to use more products in the future. Hope your week is going well.

I have never tried any of these products before; great selections. I would love to give that Huxley Brightly ever after Essence a try. I have been battling discoloration and dark spots from acne.

Jenny @ Geeky Posh said...

I'm curious about the Coola drops now, especially since they protect against HEV light! Do you know if you still need 1/4 tsp for face + neck to get the SPF30 protection?
