Skincare Review, Ingredients: Olay Clean Skin 1-2-3 Acne Solution System, Scrub, Mattifier, Spot Treatment

Pinterest

The Clean Skin 1-2-3 Acne Solution System ($19.99), a new trio from Olay promises to be better than Proactiv in clearing up pesky pimples. According to Olay, the three-in-one acne treatment:

• is packed with acne-pummeling power. Two percent salicylic acid attacks blemishes and blackheads and helps minimize their appearance over time.

reduces shine and redness, thanks to the swirled mattifier (see below for review!)

• has an invigorating essence of citrus and mint

• is dermatologist-tested, oil free and non-comedogenic so it won’t clog pores

Since my acne-prone days are over, I gave these products to my 19 year-old daughter to try. She has been suffering from acne and used Proactiv, so I thought she would be the ideal tester. The products were tested for about two weeks.

 

Acne Hater Deep Scrub

The scrub claims to, “exfoliate and penetrate pores to clear breakouts and blackheads while reducing excess oil.” My daughter used this twice a day as directed. She said it was “fantastic” in clearing up her skin and that it “worked as well as or even better than Proactiv.”

Spot Zinger

This targeted blemish treatment is said to “instantly improve skin’s appearance while delivering a 2% salicylic acid treatment to win the war on blemishes.” The lightweight, quick-absorbing formula is said to “penetrate deep into pores to help control blemishes and prevent new acne from forming.” My daughter said the product delivered on its claims.  She used it a few times as needed. The cream was not greasy or oily and “sank right in” to her skin. And it did help to “banish a big old zit” very quickly.

Swirled Mattifier

This is a very interesting product that neutralizes the appearance of redness with a subtle green tint that absorbs into skin for colorless coverage. My daughter used this on days when her skin had an overall red and blotchy look and she reported that, “it really did help get the red out.”   In addition, the product primes skin for make up, though she does not wear foundation or blush, so could not really speak to that point. But she said it “brightened up” her complexion, and left it soft, not stripped.

Although not part of the packaged set, she also sampled the See Spot Swipe, Oil-Reducing Wet Cloths, $4.99

see spot swipe cleansing towelettes Skincare Review, Ingredients: Olay Clean Skin 1-2-3 Acne Solution System, Scrub, Mattifier, Spot Treatment

Infused with citrus and mint essences, these invigorating wipes feature patented Exfoli-dots™ to help exfoliate while ridding skin of dirt, oil and make-up in a few swipes. As mentioned above, my daughter is not a make-up user, so she could not say how well the wipes worked at make-up removal. But she did like having them in her bag during the day so she could “refresh” her face without having to stop and wash it. She pointed out that they would be great in hot weather too, and plans to keep using them and also loved the fresh scent of the wipes and the other essence-infused products.

Highlights of the event included a short film preview, style stations showcasing new products,  an open bar and hors d’oeuvres. Also, fresh juices featuring the ingredients in the Biolage Cleansing Conditioner line were offered.    
I experienced the haircare evolution and discovered that my hair fit into the “medium” category.
At the end of the event, everyone was given a sample of new products. I look forward to trying my new cleansing conditioner and anti-frizz lotion customized for my medium hair type. There were also a few products from the Style Link line included: a texture builder (perfect), turbo dryer (prep) and over achiever (play).  There are 11 products in this line an 3 boosters.  These are going to be great to use as you can create many different styles mixing and matching the products.

Makeup Review, Swatches: Marc Jacobs Beauty Spring 2015 Collection At Sephora

Pinterest
Ever since its debut late last year, Marc Jacobs Beauty has been on the fast track to becoming one of the go-to lines to be found in many makeup bags. The Spring 2015 line, sold exclusively at Sephora, delivers the ultimate lip-service with new, captivating shades ranging from sheer nudes, to every type of red you could dream of!
Le Marc Lip Creme ($30)
Available in 20 gorgeous hues, inspired by men and women that have influenced Marc over the years, the new Le Marc Lip Creme is a luxurious, creamy lipstick that actually lasts! Rich and velvety, it delivers a punch of vibrant pigment, gliding on with ease. We all hate messing up a perfected pout after a mere sip of wine, or bite of pizza. These lip cremes actually do last! The pigmented colors sink deep into the skin and leave lips saturated for hours. Watch them go from a creamy burst of color, to a light lip stain as the night progresses. Touch-ups are a thing of the past. Fun fact: a magnetic pull makes them close in a snap.

Luxuriously soft, this multifunctional brush curves to your every crevice. The flat-shaped face brush is designed to blush, bronze, and highlight. Now that’s a lot of bang for your buck! The synthetic, wavy fibers (yay animal-rights activists!) deliver precise pigment pickup and laydown. You can contour with the top, flat area, and highlight or apply blusher with either side.

An exclusive duo of silky contouring powders to help sculpt, define, and highlight the face, this set, available in three combinations, is perfect for evening out your complexion, and highlighting and contouring every angle. It’s a filter in a compact so you’re always insta-ready! Soft, warm shades highlight and sculpt the face without harsh lines. The best part of this compact? The giant mirror that makes touch-ups viable from the subway to the office hallway. Designed to be used with The Shape Contour and Blush Brush! I tried set 20 in Dream Filter. The soft pink highlighter adds warmth and light to the face, while the matte, medium bronze creates natural multi-dimension.

Review, Ingredients: Biore Charcoal Collection: Pore Penetrating Soap Bar, Minimizer, Deep Cleaning Strips - Best New Products To Reduce Pores

Who would have thought that the beauty world could love something so dirty. Okay, it’s not dirty in a sense that it’s bad for your skin, but not all natural ingredients necessarily look appealing. Nevertheless, if it promises to make our skin look blemish-free with less pores, then we’ll happily slather, scrub and rub on whatever it takes to have our skin looking its best.

Bioré Skincare Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser, Self Heating One Minute Mask With Natural Charcoal

Last year we were introduced to charcoal, one of the hottest ingredients in skincare to naturally draw out impurities without irritating your skin. Natural black charcoal attracts dirt and oil like a magnet, making it the ultimate shine-reducing and oil-controlling ingredient any acne-prone and oily-faced gal could appreciate and adore.

Review, Ingredients: Biore Charcoal Collection: Pore Penetrating Soap Bar, Minimizer, Deep Cleaning Strips - Best New Products To Reduce Pores

Next time you’re perusing down your usual skincare aisle, make sure to spot these three new items just added to the Biore Charcoal Collection: Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar, Charcoal Pore Minimizer, Deep Cleaning Charcoal Pore Strips. You’ll be able to deep clean, cut down pore size and keep your skin looking shine-free with cutting-edge new formulations for healthy, clean and smooth skin. (If your skin hasn’t already tried the magic that is the Self Heating One Minute Mask, then you certainly are missing out on some charcoal wizardry.)

Charcoal – How Does It Work To Remove Impurities? What Is Activated Charcoal?

Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar: If you’re a fan of anything bar-form, the and still want to indulge in the power of charcoal, then this bar is perfect for you… or your man — it looks like a hunk of actual charcoal (and is really comfortable to hold), so he just might use it. The dual action formula exfoliates while deep cleaning, drawing out dirt and oil for a 2.5 times better clean compared to using your basic cleanser. Jojoba beads and peppermint leave the skin feeling refreshed and gently exfoliated for significantly cleaned skin.

Charcoal Pore Minimizer: Minimize and unclog pores and with this pore minimizing cleanser. (The packaging alone is a marvel; a simple press of the button dispenses just enough cleanser to get the job done.) Natural charcoal is found in this advanced formula that activates on contact with water to draw out deep down impurities. Guess what leaves your skin feeling super-smooth too? Microcrystals. They’ll visibly make your pores look smaller just after one use! Use this bad-boy up to 2-3 times per week.

Deep Cleaning Charcoal Pore Strips: Those iconic Pore Strips now come packed with charcoal. For the first time Biore has added natural charcoal powder to their Pore Strips, reducing oil for a full 24-hours. You’ll be able to remove impurities from those clogged pores with a propriety c-bond technology and potent charcoal, along with soothing witch hazel and tea tree oil to refine pores and diminish their appearance over time. Good riddance!

Available at select food, drug and mass merchant stores. For more information, visit www.Biore.com.
