This is where I talk about some of the beauty products I've been loving lately...

Skin Actives Intensive Recovery Mask*
Featuring USDA organic sea kelp this Intensive Recovery Mask could be a dupe for La Mer Intensive Revitalizing Mask at a fraction of the price. Both masks work to neutralize free radicals and protect skin. The kelp in this mask is fermented through a proprietary process which maximizes its moisturizing properties while making nutrients required by the skin available. The ferment also has a soothing effect that can reduce redness, itchiness and irritation. I've been using this mask twice a week and it never fails to leave my skin feeling soft, hydrated and bouncy.
$20 at Skin Actives

LixirSkin Vitamin C Paste
This innovative wash-off treatment isolates the acid form of vitamin C, L Ascorbic Acid 10%, into a potent paste that neutralizes free radicals, UV rays and oxidized sebum for more a vibrant, luminous and more even toned complexion. It's a speed mask that requires just a few minutes after cleansing, I use it the mornings and like to leave it on for a little longer to boost its efficacy. It doesn't have the best smell but I don't mind it for the boost of radiance. Vitamin C is one of my favorite skincare ingredients and this is a great way to get a little more of it into my routine.
$45 at Net-A-Porter, Cult Beauty, Beautylish

Bio-Oil Skincare Oil
The formulation of this product is a combination of plant extracts and vitamins suspended in an oil base that is known to work wonders on scars and stretch mark.I had a scar from a bad insect bite that is virtually non existent now thanks to Bio-Oil. While using it for that purpose I also discovered it's a wonderful moisturizer. A little goes a long way and it leaves my skin super soft.
$19.99 at Ulta Beauty, Target, AmazonWalgreens

Oskia Restoration Oil*
This gorgeous oil  contains a delicate blend of nutrients, high-tech natural actives, floral oils & extracts that work to hydrate and restore vitality.  It has a nice lightweight texture that sinks readily into the skin without feeling greasy or heavy. I'm a fan of the relaxing scent as well as the way it nourishes my skin not to mention the lovely glow it imparts.

neuINFUSION 3-Pc. Complexion Set*
The neuINFUSION 3-Pc. Complexion Set includes a set of advanced technology neuINFUSION DRY masks for the face and neck. Infused with microparticles, they work to instantly renew skin in 15 minutes. The neuREFLECTION Complexion Perfecting Polish with white activated binchotan charcoal provides intense detoxification to congested pores for a diminished appearance while magnesium oxide and sugar work in harmony to exfoliate for an instantly smoother, more radiant complexion.I used the complete set before an event and my skin looked more luminous and smooth for days after. The dry masks are a unique experience which I quite enjoyed and I still use the polish a few times a week. It is so gentle and clarifying.

This hand cream formulated with certified organic active botanicals has the most divine scent. It provides antioxidant protection and moisturizes beautifully without feeling greasy or heavy. And how cool is the packaging.

I haven´t tried any of the products, but am a huge fan of these speedy masks. I had a Vitamin C one from REN once, that sounded similar. What is the scent like?

Bio-oil sounds like a great oil ad I like that it is affordable as well. It's great it helped you get rid of that insect wound scar. All of these products sounds lovely. The Vitamin C paste sounds amazing too.

Pilar said...

I've heard great things about bio oil. I may need to try it. I have a small scar on my arm that I think came from an insect bite when I was outside about a month ago. Have a great week Rowena!

I have been using Bio Oil for over a year now and it works great as a night oil and offer the perfect amount of moisture for the winter months as well.. and you are right, a little goes a long way.

Haven't tried any of these, chingu, but they all sound great. That Vitamin C paste on sounds amazing and something I should try:D

Lena L said...

I totally forgot about Bio-oil! Thanks for reminding me of this inexpensive yet effective stuff. I should buy a small size again and try it on my insect scars (I recently got a few when I visited a friend's garden).

Hope you've had a great long weekend. And, hope you have a great rest of the week! :D

The packaging for the Vitamin C paste immediately caught my eye - it looks so.... wholesome?! haha, not sure if that makes sense! Great idea to leave on for a little longer to help boost the effects :)

Love the LixirSkin Vitamin C Paste, it's probably my favorite vitamin c product yet! Oskia always impressed me with their beautiful products so I'll have to add that oil to my wishlist!
