Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Retinol Overnight Serum

Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Retinol Overnight Serum

The Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Retinol Overnight Serum ( $72; ulta.com) is something I’ve been using on rotation in my skincare routine the past few weeks. Its a gentle, plant based, bio retinol in a clean formula that can be used everyday to minimize signs of aging. The formula also features moisturizing ingredients like jojoba, coconut and shea butters. As with any new retinol, I started using it about three times a week, moving into every other day. The packaging is fantastic and ensures there’s no contamination and minimal air exposure. It does have a slight, zesty citrus scent that I love, but is something to keep in mind if you are sensitive to fragrances in your skincare. I love how gentle this formula is - I haven’t had any allergic reactions, peeling or dryness unlike other retinols I have tried. I also have noticed an improvement in some areas of my face that are usually more dry this time of the year and also evenness in texture and dark spots. Overall, a fantastic formula to try if you have sensitive/dry skin or if you are just starting out with your retinol journey and want something that is gentle and clean, yet effective!

Butter By Keba Lotus Nut Body Butter, Unity Code Eau de Parfum

Butter By Keba Lotus Nut Body Butter, Unity Code Eau de Parfum

Butter By Keba is a brand that is new to me and I recently tried out a couple of products from their fragranced body care line. The Lotus Nut Body Butter ($32; butterbykeba.com) is an ultra rich, moisturizing body butter with a gorgeous, slightly heady, floral scent. The fragrance is perfect for spring-summer with notes of Jasmine and Rose with a hint of creamy coconut. The texture is balmy and thick, but melts upon application and helps instantly moisturize dry spots. The formulation is free of petrolatum, mineral oil and paraffin and the fragrances are from natural essentials oils with no synthetic components. If you have a sensitive nose, the fragrance can be a tad strong and also since the texture is thick, a little bit goes a really long way. This body butter also doubles up as a hand cream in the winter. The Unity Code Eau de Parfum ($22 - $68; butterbykeba.com) is a gender neutral fragrance with notes of grapefruit, cedar wood, fig, cactus flower, palo santo, vetiver and patchouli. It is a tad patchouli heavy with a touch of the citrus, but perfect for the fall-winter when I tend to gravitate towards heavier, less floral scents with better longevity. Overall, I’m really impressed with what I've tried so far from the brand and would definitely recommend, especially the body butters for a luxuriously moisturizing treat.

Weleda Sheer Hydration Skincare Range

Weleda Sheer Hydration Skincare Range Review, Photos, Ingredients

The Sheer Hydration range is new from Weleda, a weightless hydration range formulated with Prickly Pear Cactus Extract, Aloe Leaf Juice and Shea Butter. It is formulated for normal/combination-dry skin and perfect for someone like me when I am more dry in the winter, leaning normal in the summer. This is a range I could use all through the year because of how moisturizing yet super lightweight and sheer it feels. There are two moisturizers - a Sheer Hydration Dewy Cream ($22.99; target.com) and a Daily Dew Lotion ($23.99; weleda.com), both of which I love and have been using in rotation the past few weeks. Under makeup, they both make for a hydrating base. The Sheer Hydration Eye Gel ($22.99 ; target.com) has a cooling metal applicator that helps with a little massage action while hydrating the under eye area without making it look greasy. The Sheer Hydration Moisture Mist ($13.99; target.com) is a fabulous mid day hydrating mist that can also be used over or under makeup for a quick boost of hydration. The entire range has a calming scent that isn’t overpowering or too strong which I absolutely love!
