Dermalogica Calm Water Gel and Barrier Defense Booster

Dermalogica Calm Water Gl and Barrier Defense Booster


The Calm Water Gel ($48; dermalogica.com)and Barrier Defense Booster ($75; dermalogica.com) are both new from Dermalogica. They’re both hydration boosters and part of the UltraCalming line that helps soothe, moisturize and balance sensitive skin. The Calm Water Gel is a lightweight water-gel moisturizer that transforms from gel to an almost invisible watery fluid and helps hydrate skin. Its one I like to use before moisturizer for an added layer of moisture. It does feel a tad sticky initially, but sinks in pretty well without any residue. The Barrier Defense Booster is more like a lightweight oil that can be added to moisturizers or used on its own as an added skincare step. It has a soothing, relaxing scent and absorbs quickly. I do like it better when mixed in with a moisturizer and love how non-sticky and residue-free it is. Its a good one as an additional step to your skincare routine in addition to a good moisturizer. The packaging is travel friendly and the product itself is great for anyone with combination-dry skin in need of a good moisture boost.

OGX Youth Enhancing + Sake Essence Collection

OGX Youth Enhancing +  Sake Essence Collection



The Youth Enhancing + Sake Essence Collection ($7.99 each; target.com) is OGX’s newest range that helps strengthen and soften, dry brittle hair. Its a gorgeous smelling range that feels hydrating and adds a lot of volume without making my fine hair frizzy. The Shampoo is quite thick, lathers up really well and washes off clean, without any residue. I do think that my hair feels better when followed up with the conditioner since the shampoo can leave my hair feeling a tad tangled. The Conditioner isn’t heavy and does a great job detangling. The Rejuvenating Elixir is more like a lightweight cream that can be used like a leave in conditioner or as a pre styling product. I love this one as it is great for fine hair and doesn’t weigh my hair down. I like it more as a leave in on days I tend to air dry. Overall, a great range to try for fine hair that needs volume and some softness at a wallet friendly price.

Osmosis Color Blush in Pink Pearl and Lip Glaze in Flirt

Osmosis Color Blush in Pink Pearl and Lip Glaze in Flirt



The Lip Glaze in Flirt ($18; osmosisskincare.com) and the Blush in Pink Pearl ($27; osmosisskincare.com) are two products from Osmosis that I’ve currently been loving. The Blush in Pink Pearl is a shimmery, mid tone pink blush that looks great on medium-dark skin tones and the shimmer translates to a nice sheen on the cheeks. Its a great formula that blends beautifully and fades very minimally through the day.The Lip Glaze in Flirt is a sheer, shiny lipgloss with a very plush texture that feels super comfortable. I’m not a fan of the applicator, although the product more than makes up for it. Overall, a great brand that I’ve quite liked the few products I’ve tried from them and these two in particular are great for anyone looking for a natural looking blush and a sheer lip gloss.
