The past few weeks have been testing my ability to refrain from purchasing new beauty products. Let’s just say I haven’t done so well, or so my wallet and current Nordstrom cart says! I have been researching many new beauty products and I’m so excited to try even more soon. On my recent trip to Ulta, I picked up some new skincare items to try, as well as some makeup products I have used in the past. I thought it would be fun to share some of my initial thoughts on these new beauty products with you.
NEW BEAUTY PRODUCTS I’M TRYING
Perricone MD Photo Plasma
For the past few months, I have been using the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. I used to use it when I was younger, so I decided to give it another try these days. However, this time around, I didn’t love it as much. I have been obsessed with other Perricone MD products lately, like their Blue Plasma and Nutritive Cleanser, so I decided to give the Photo Plasma moisturizer a go. It isn’t oil free, so I do feel like it is a bit heavier than what I need, but I love it’s whipped consistency and it really moisturizes my skin well. At first, I wasn’t positive about this product but it is really goring on me!
A oil-free, anti-aging moisturizer for a brighter-looking, more radiant skin while protecting against damaging sun rays with mineral-based SPF 30.
Perricone MD OVM
The texture of my skin is a real concern for me. I have yet to find anything that will complete clear up my acne or a dermatologist that I love. I decided to give the OVM Day Treatment a go with the hopes that over time it would help to even out the texture of my skin. Thinking about how much acne scaring I have, and probably will have in the future, makes me want to cry. All I can really say about this product, right now, is that it soaks into the skin amazingly. The consistency is almost quite tacky and it makes me feel like I’m doing a lot for my skin.
Newly enriched with Vitamin C Ester and Vitamin E, OVM harnesses the power of Eggshell Membrane, Retinol and a proprietary carrier system to create a bio-matrix technology that delivers three-dimensional anti-aging results.
Peter Thomas Roth Max Complexion Correction Pads
The Complexion Correction pads are quite challenging for me right now. I almost feel like they are too strong for my sensitive skin, especially in the beginning, they really made my skin sting! I’m a bit more used to it now, but they still cause some irritation. For now, I am using them in the place of a toner, however I might have to switch them to once every few days as a treatment.
Regulates healthy cell turnover and delivers proven anti-aging benefits that help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Deluxe, generously thick, double-sided pads deliver gentle cleansing action on one side and superior pore-refining exfoliation on the textured side. Pads contain a potent blend of Alpha Hydroxy Acid (Glycolic Acid Complex10%), Beta Hydroxy Acid (Salicylic Acid 2%) and Alcohol (46%) in an advanced botanical formulation. Fresh peach bellini scent replaces traditional medicinal antiseptic pads.
NARS Creamy Concealer
After running out of my Esteé Lauder concealer, I decided to pick up an old time favorite the NARS Creamy Concealer. I have purchased so many tubes of this and it’s still an all time favorite. This product isn’t heavily scented and covers both my dar under circles and blemishes. It can be used to cover different things and it’s perfect for travel!
Buildable, blendable, brilliant: Coveted by artists for its luxurious texture and luminous finish, new Radiant Creamy Concealer evens skin with lightweight, medium-to-high, buildable coverage. Enriched with hydrating, multi-action skincare benefits and light-diffusing technology, it creates a softer, smoother complexion while instantly obscuring imperfections and diminishing fine lines and signs of fatigue.
NARS Laguna Bronzer
Lastly, the most famous NARS Laguna Bronzer. I feel like I don’t really have to say much about this product, because it’s mostly likely been said already! This bronzer is perfect for creating a natural bronzed glow or contouring your cheeks. It has a great price point and is an all time classic product.
A true brown-based bronzer with a gold shimmer fusion that’s excellent for creating or enhancing the look of healthy, glowing and tanned skin.
