The new Kate Somerville Daily Deflector Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Anti-Aging Sunscreen ($48.00) is a lightweight, creamy formula that claims to do triple duty, “providing intense hydration, UV protection, and anti-aging benefits.” Additionally, a cutting-edge delivery system is supposed to ensure “that the sunscreen stays in a reservoir on the surface of the skin — where it is most effective — and the advanced actives penetrate deeply — where they’re able to produce the greatest results.”

I have been shopping there for years, yet I still love …

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of attending a beauty breakfast hosted by QVC where I saw the latest and greatest of their enormous beauty inventory. I’ll admit, I’m not an avid tele shopper. My shopping habits need to focus on the highly tactile, so I end up spending more time at my local Sephora. But that breakfast made me give QVC more than a second look, and here’s why:

Over the years, I have tried a wide variety of daily moisturizers with an SPF of 15 or higher, from drugstore brands to higher end products. Though there have been some very good ones, they always seem to fall short of being the one I can’t live without. Aveeno’s Smart Essentials Daily Nourishing …
The BeautyStat community of beauty obsessed ladies can’t get enough of facial scrubs. Some of their faves include those from L’Oreal, Arbonne as well as Kate Somerville.

Confession: I am a sucker for good packaging, and this elegant Kate Somerville product scores high marks in that department. The CytoCell Dark Circle Corrective is packaged in a streamlined bronze and silver pump that looks great in my bathroom, and I will leave it out so I can enjoy the full effect.
As for the eye cream itself, it went on rich and creamy, always a plus for that delicate under-eye zone. But after six days of use, I did not notice any change in my dark circles, which are …
