PRODUCTS TO CHECK OUT
One of the roles of a Style Coach TM is to search out great products and advise everyone how well they work. I post new ones the first week of every month so check back often and try them for yourself!
EMINENCE Organic Skin Care is an award winning company that continuously offers amazing products and they definitely hit the nail on the head with this one. The Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream has won several awards, including an honorable mention from the ASCP Readers' Choice Awards from Skin Deep. This advanced treatment lifts, de-puffs, and minimizes the appearance of dark under eye circles. The applicator has a stainless steel ball that deposits the product as you roll it around the eye area, cooling and massaging sore, tired eyes. It's a must-have for minimizing the deep crows feet that set in after menopause or for people who spend hours on end on the computer. Get it online or at any spa that carries Eminence products.
I love to scout out and promote local products and this little gem is a winner in my books. HELLO Soaps is a company local to the Evansburg, Alberta area. All the products, including natural bath and beauty products and cleaning products are handmade by Jeanette Jones. I found this Peppermint Foot Spray in a little boutique in Sherwood Park, Alberta. It contains peppermint oil, witch hazel and aloe leaf juice and it is sooooo refreshing! I spray it directly on my tired, throbbing feet after a long day working or shopping. I can't get to sleep without it! She also makes soy candles, a variety of sugar cube scrubs such as coconut lime and satsuma, candy cane essential oils, an orange/cinnamon lotion and some mens' products among her other wonderful things. Connect with Hello Soaps on Facebook or contact Jeanette directly at email@example.com to order.
CITY BEAUTY is getting quite a cult following with their targeted anti-aging products so I decided to try a couple of them to see what all the buzz is about. This Line-Blurring Wrinkle Filler caught my eye because I have some really deep wrinkles on both sides of my chin that haven't responded to anything else I've tried. This product claims to contain diamond powder, which piqued my interest as well. The product is an intensive spot treatment that is supposed to fill in creases and blur the look of wrinkles by plumping skin from the inside-out. It containes algae extract, rosehip seed oil, blue lotus flower extract and a whole host of other ingredients too extensive to list. I have only been using the product for two weeks so I will keep you posted about my results. If it does what it says it can do I will have it autoshipped monthly! Get it for $79.00 with free shipping at citybeauty.com.
I am a big fan of facial and body oils now that I am older because they really do a great job of keeping skin plump and hydrated. This one caught my eye because of the price. I was unable to find some reasonably priced jojoba oil but stumbled upon this Apricot Body Oil from Eminence Organics that also contains jojoba and grapeseed oils which are both very hydrating and anti-aging. All these oils are used extensively in the beauty industry and added to expensive moisturizers so to find them all in one product for only $29.00 is a huge plus! Order it from Beauty Sense in Canada to get free shipping or from any online distributor of Eminence products.
Charlotte Tilbury's makeup and beauty products have a huge following by celebrities and it's no wonder because they make your skin glow and are beautifully packaged. Very girly-girl for people who appreciate that. They also have a lovely floral scent, which I really like. I have only tried one product to date but definitely want to investigate more. Charlotte's Magic Lip Oil Crystal Elixir glides on your lips nicely and smells amazing. It is a lip conditioner by day and a mask at night. I wear it when I want to smell pretty and put it on before bed during the winter. It claims to plump your lips up to 70% in 28 days because it contains swertian leaf extract which reduces the appearance of lip lines, resurrection leaf which locks in moisture, sqisandryl for plumping, and hyaluronic acid to hydrate. I haven't actually taken any before and after pictures but it seems to do what it claims. $45.00 at Sephora or charlottetillbury.com.
I wouldn't be doing my job of sharing noteworthy products if I failed to mention the very popular Eminence Organics Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant with Lactic Acid. This is clearly one of Eminence's most positively reviewed and awarded products because of it's gentle exfoliating and oil absorbing properties. Rice powder is a very gentle, non-abrasive exfoliant effective in absorbing excess oil. Strawberries and rhubarb have antioxidant properties which rid the skin of harmful free radicals. Your skin will look brighter and clearer and your complexion will literally glow if you use it at least once a week. Nothing more to say here! $48.00 at eminenceorganics.com or in Canada at beautysense.com.
