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!

OLEHENRIKSEN 3 Little Wonders

OLEHENRIKSEN

Truth Serum is an anti-aging serum. It will brighten, firm skin, and deliver all-day hydration with vitamin C and collagen.

OLEHENRIKSEN

Sheer Transformation Perfecting Moisturizer contains multi-fruit acids and antioxidants. This whipped and silky moisturizer gently refines uneven skintone and texture. It delivers weightless hydration and luminous perfection.

OLEHENRIKSEN

Invigorating Night Transformation Gel is a retexturizing gel that smooths skin with a multisource AHA complex. 

♥♥♥♥♥

OLEHENRIKSEN 3 Little Wonders is an anti-aging skin care that has made a noticeable difference in Lauren’s complexion. After trying many different product lines, the texture of Lauren’s skin is now much brighter, smoother, and hydrated.  The Truth Serum has a fantastic scent of fresh oranges and absorbs quickly onto her skin.  The Sheer Transformation Perfecting Moisturizer is lightweight.  This is exactly what Lauren needs with her combination/oily skin tone.  Her makeup application is a breeze because the moisturizer does not leave her skin feeling or appearing greasy. She uses the Invigorating Night Transformation Gel followed by the moisturizer in the evening for a refreshed look each morning. If you’re in the market for a new anti-aging skincare regime, this one does not disappoint!  The results are amazing. This trio of wonders is a great introduction to the OLEHENRIKSEN line and it’s an excellent value!

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!
