Skin-care commercials make some pretty big promises, so when a product actually makes good on one, well, people tend to shout the news from the rooftopsÃ¢â'¬"especially beauty bloggers.
I thought it would be fun to pass the mic and hear what fellow bloggettes are obsessing over at the moment. Here's what they told me:
La Roche-Posay Anthelios SX Daily Moisturizing Cream. Erika from makeupbag.net, just can't get enough of this sunscreen. "It's light like a moisturizer and contains Mexoryl SX to protect from UVA rays," she says. I'd like to add: It also makes a fantastic makeup base.Origins Never a Dull Moment Skin Brightening Face Polisher with Fruit Enzymes Amber from beautybloggingjunkie.com is crushing on this gentle scrub with apricot and mango seeds and papaya extract. "I've repurchased at least nine of these, and I always have a backup at the ready," she says. Why so loyal, Amber? "Per eyebrow guru/makeup artist Elke von Fruedenberg's advice, I've been exfoliating my brows with it. A weekly rubdown makes the sparse spots grow in quickly and sloughs off dead skin around the follicle, making strays easier to pluck."
IS Clinical Super Serum As a former beauty editor in New York, Nadine of jolienadine.com has seen enough product to think twice before speaking in hyperbole. When she called this serum a "miracle in a bottle," I paid attention. "It combats hyperpigmentation, acne, and fine lines while increasing collagen production and pumping skin full of protective antioxidants." In short, Nadine says, "It just works!"
Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Swivel Stick Daneen at spoiledpretty.com loves this stuff. "I use it all over my bodyÃ¢â'¬"it locks in moisture for hours and seems to last a lifetime," she says. She especially loves it as lip balm. Even better? "It smells just like a frothy black and white milkshake." Yum!
Thanks, ladies! Let's get together again soon....
