We often find that it’s hard to get it right when it comes to buying skincare. It’s not a visual shopping experience like it is when purchasing clothing and accessories and can often keep us guessing. Beauty By Design’s Skincare makes us feel confident about our skin and gives us products with natural ingredients for a luminious glow! They have a live Esthetician review our skin survey and selfie and then we texted each other about our skin. In the end, she recommended 4 products to both Karen and I that we love. The entire process is so easy and it’s great because we can now text her anytime for advice too!

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

Brazilian

Brazilian

Brazilian Bum Bum Cream (pronounced boom-boom) has easily become our new Summer Fave! The beachy scent of caramel and pistachio is simply AMAZING! It absorbs quickly and leaves our skin very soft and smooth.  After one application, we noticed a slight shimmer effect for that beautiful Brazilian Summer glow!  Now for the best part. It FIRMS and TIGHTENS skin due to its secret ingredient, Guaraná extract. Hello, Brazilian Beauty! Guaraná is a native Amazonian fruit that has five times the caffeine than coffee.  Not to mention, this cream has a few other key ingredients such as Cupuacu Butter,  Acaí, and Coconut oil.  These nutrient-rich ingredients of the Amazon help to moisturize and restore the elasticity of our skin making it look and feel younger too!  We massage it in a circular motion on our bums, thighs, arms, and our tummies.  Heck, apply it everywhere! We dare you to play up your best assets and indulge yourself in this luxurious cream. Getting beach ready has never been so easy!

Peter Thomas Roth

Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel

Peter Thomas Roth

There is an anti-aging facial cleansing gel out there that provides a peachy clean freshness for beautiful skin: Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel. It claims to produce an ultraclean, refined, and revitalized complexion and it delivers.

No wonder Lauren was so excited to get this little wonder at Ulta’s 21 days of beauty event. After all, we are known for going on about how great other products from the PTR line are. For instance: Pumpkin Enzyme Mask Enzymatic Dermal Resurfacer and The Firmx Peeling Gel, which are both a must-try!

You know how much we like it when a little bit of product goes a long way; this time, it’s safe to say that a drop smaller than a dime is enough to cleanse your entire face and neck. The gel itself works into a nice lather and foams up nicely, with a clean, fresh peach scent.

No traces of makeup residue left to see, just a beautiful glow. Lines and wrinkles look minimized. Skin texture is improved since the foam gently sweeps away dead skin cells and impurities that sometimes make the complexion look dull.

Please keep in mind that it contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and consequently lead to sunburn. No need to worry, if you use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterward.

This cleansing gel is suitable for all skin types except sensitive skin, including dry, sun damaged, normal, combination, oily, and acne prone skin – you name it. Safe to say it is worth the splurge. What more can we add? Just another great product from the PTR line. Watch out, our standards keep on rising! You can also check out the benefits of buying hydrolyzed collagen for delaying aging and make skin radiant.

Emile Cordon

Emile Cordon Cashmere-On Lip Pot

Emile Cordon

Think of No. 1 Lisa lip pot it as an enchanting potion. With notes of rose champagne, fresh tea rose and strawberry leaves, this Emile Cordon Cashmere-On Lip Pot emanates a unique fragrance full of cosmopolitan appeal. We love how it reduced the appearance of our fine lines and left our lips feeling soft and smooth.

Made with top quality ingredients and approved by a New York perfumer that works on the scent, this product feels very moisturizing and hydrating on our lips. It heals and softens chapped lips, has a plumping effect, and helps reduce lip lines. You will end with an improved circulation in the skin and fully protect from sun drying effects.

The lip treatment is like a luxury facial for your lips that recharges and rejuvenates your pout. One pot has an array of possible uses: apply as a lip treatment, nourish cuticles, protect skin, soothing after sun exposure. Use it daily, alone or under makeup.

Can we share a secret tip? Apply it under lipstick to have your lip products glide on effortlessly. It also works to highlight cheekbones, tame rogue eyebrows and as an eyeshadow base for dewy eyes. Talk about a versatile product!

All five lip pots in the collection are tinted with a lovely variety of pastel colors. The fact that the packaging is so elegant and classy makes this is our latest obsession for a gorgeous kisser! Thank you, Emile, for the opportunity to try your amazing product!
