Some recent skin and body care discoveries from a few new to me brands that I’m loving!
Jurlique Skin Balancing Face Oil ($50; sephora.com) is a lovely oil for dry skin. Its quite rich and nourishing, hence takes a while to completely sink in. I like to use a couple of drops on its own or mixed in with a moisturizer. It leaves skin very moisturized and plump the next morning. A good one for combination to dry skin types and fabulous for winter.
Equitance is a brand new to me & the Brightening Foaming Cleanser ($30; equitance-us.com) is a balancing, frothy face wash. A little goes a really long way with this one since it creates a super rich lather. It is brightening and leaves skin squeaky clean. I’ve always needed a moisturizer afterwards, but oilier skin types may not need one in the summer. The scent is nice, but quite strong and doesn’t linger after you wash. A nice foaming cleanser to try while in the shower or as a second cleanser.
Hydra Floral is Decleor's skincare range targeted for normal to dry skin. The Anti Pollution Hydrating Active Lotion ($48; declourusa.com) and Gel Cream ($67; decleorusa.com) are new additions that I’m loving. The lotion is very softening and the gel-cream is a lightweight day cream that absorbs instantly. Both products have a strong floral scent that can be a little too much for sensitive noses, but they are really nice for the warmer months ahead, especially if you are looking for something hydrating, yet lightweight.
Zelens Lip Treatment Oil ($65; barneys.com) is a lip conditioning oil that goes on like a clear gloss. It has a nice vanilla scent and isn't sticky or greasy. It leaves lips smooth and plump. The applicator is really nice and makes application easy on the go. Its a very luxurious lip treatment that is great to maintain lips soft rather than cure.
Sparitual Instinctual Bath Salts ($25; millspharmacy.com) is a blend of California Sea Salts, Dead Sea Salts, and Epsom Salts that smells amazing. I love to add a scoop or two especially while doing an at home pedicure. The ginger in there is great for circulation and is very relaxing too! Its a great one to try after a workout or to mix in with DIY hand and body scrubs.
