I don’t know ’bout you, but I was instantly drawn to this. All the goodness of Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in a more compact, concentrated form? Buffing brush, bring it over!
It does remind me of the Vitalumiere Aqua compact Chanel released this year. I spotted this in the introductory advertisements of the robust Vogue U.S. September issue.
Just when I thought I had seen enough new base products this had to draw me in didn’t it? There are 12 familiar named shades to suit and it won’t come without a high price. This makeup compact retails for $45 according to the website, but I am not sure if they’ve brought it in already to Philippine shores. Gotta go to bed…have to leave for a shoot in 6 hours.… Read the rest
I chanced upon our family friends Sophie, Sabina, and their mother, Joanna upon leaving Greenbelt 5 last month. We hadn’t seen each other in awhile and it was nice to bump into them. I had my camera ’round my neck so I took the rare opportunity and snapped a photo which has turned out to be one of the best people shots I’ve snapped with my camera so far. I was touched by what I saw.
If I’m not mistaken, Joanna is wearing a bit of makeup, but not much, and Sophie and Sabina simply radiate through the lens without any on. I am righteously coveting Sophie’s rosy skin and positively soft but defined eyebrows right now. Oh…for a bit more hair for my own arches…hehe. What an inspiring photo, was glad to have seen them and captured this Mother-Daughter Medley.… Read the rest
It’s not everyday that I get a foreign brand knocking on my inbox door and am happy to present a product today unlike any other I’ve heard of. The first and only time I heard about this product was on LondonMakeupGirl’s lovely blog and she’s one of the UK’s higher end beauty bloggers (was trying hard not to covet that she was invited to the Tom Ford beauty launch). I present an innovative skincare alternative to you who are miserable from trialling all sorts of anti-acne topical products and remedies that never seem to do anything except sit on top of the skin or agitate the condition. This is help: clear skin by Works With Water Nutraceuticals UK.
“help: clear skin is a 100% natural skin supplement that promises to reduce blemishes from the inside out in as little as six weeks. Packed with praventin – derived from milk protein and scientifically supported to achieve a clearer complexion – the other natural ingredients include aloe vera to help heal, smooth and nourish the skin, and oligofructose, a soluble fibre to aid digestion and help eliminate toxin. Praventin is a natural ingredient derived from milk, rich in Lactoferrin, which has been proven to reduce acne by boosting the body’s natural defences. It limits the growth of acne bacteria, reduces the appearance of blemishes and speeds up the skin’s innate healing process, leaving your complexion looking clearer and more radiant.”
Q: “What is the difference between help: clear skin and help: clear skin for men?”
A: “There is absolutely no difference between CS and CS for Men. The key ingredients in the blend formulation work on male and female skin in exactly the same way. We brought out CS for Men in response to requests for less ‘pink and girlie’ packaging.”
I was very excited that Works With Water UK said they would like to send me some boxes of their help: clear skin soluble nutraceutical fiber which when mixed with water or soft food (like yoghurt, soup, or cereal) is supposed to “help clear skin” of blemishes and acne from the inside out after daily ingestion for a minimum of 4-6 weeks. Of course my willing guinea pig for this product trial is to be none other than my dear, only teenage brother. Read more to get the full post with more of my thoughts on this.… Read the rest
