Friday Top 5- Best Face and Body Oils

This Friday I would love to talk about my skincare obsession. Oil. Yes, you heard me right, I said oil.  For the past few years I have been incorporating different essential oils into my skincare routine. It started with the DHC Olive Oil Serum and Cleansing Oil.  The combination made my acne clear up and softened my skin in a way that no moisturizer ever had.  It was gentle and effective. Sold!

Now, essential oils are apart of my daily routine. The products I picked this week are my current favorites (although this list is constantly evolving). 

1) Patyka Absolute Face Oil: this oil is ridiculously rich, yet sinks into the skin immediately. Known as a "dry oil", it is even suitable for use under makeup. This  skin-enhancing cocktail of 11 essential oils and plant oils bring life back into your skin. Dog rose, packed with stimulating omegas, helps restore and strengthen your skin as protective wheat germ and olive oil nourish deep down. Jojoba oil provides non-oily hydration and squalene soothes irritations and inflammation.

2) Rodin Olio Lusso: Although this oil is on the pricey side, it is well worth the price of purchase.  Packed with eleven essential oils derived from flowers and other botanicals, this is the ideal liquid moisturizer for anyone seeking a simple solution to hydrated skin and a luminous, light-reflecting complexion. Like magic, it effortlessly melts into complexions that are "normal," oily, dry, or any combination thereof, without leaving any greasy residue.  This oil has transformed my skin on my worst days. 

3) L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil: Not only does this shower gel smells amazing, but it lathers your skin in the most delicate oil.  I especially love to use this after I shave my legs as a finishing touch during my shower routine. It has a unique skin cleansing treatment that foams when in contact with water.  Even after washing off, the Shower Oil leaves a light veil on the skin for a smooth, satin-like feel, and the scent is a fresh almond that both you and your man will love! 

4)Bobbi Brown Beach Body Oil:  Nothing makes me feel sexier than when I put on this body oil. Not only does it smell like a vacation at the beach, but I promise you that you will feel warm and sultry when you have this on your skin. This body oil gives skin a sexy sheen. Contains four essential oils (olive, sesame, avocado, and jojoba oils) and vitamins E and C to soften and nourish skin.

5) Bobbi Brown Extra Face Oil: Another favorite from Bobbi Brown, this oil just recently came into my beauty repertoire.  This oil is particularly rich and emollient, so it is perfect for winter. This provides a concentrated boost of intensive moisture to comfort very dry skin. The lightweight formula absorbs easily, softening and conditioning skin with an oil blend of sesame, sweet almond, olive and jojoba.

Bobbi Brown Campaign

GlobalGiving  Pretty Powerful

As you know, March is International Women's Month— and who better to launch a powerful campaign, than Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. Everything they do is about empowering women to be their best selves, so I’m very pleased to reveal the launch of the Pretty Powerful Campaign for Women and Girls, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics’ first-ever global charitable initiative.

This worldwide movement, launching this Friday, March 8th, is dedicated to empowering women and girls with education, resources, job skills and work experience and will aim to help them “be who they are.” The campaign will raise funds through the sale of a limited-edition Pretty Powerful Pot Rouge ($25) and via GlobalGiving.org. In the U.S., every cent of the proceeds from sales of the Pretty Powerful Pot Rouge will go to Dress for Success, which Bobbi has worked with for years.

In Bobbi’s words, “makeup alone cannot even the playing field for women and girls across the world, but I believe that together, those who create, apply, buy and wear makeup can.” 

How You Can Help:

“I never want to look like I am wearing too much makeup, so this foundation evens out my skin, leaving it flawless and natural.” ~Katie Holmes

The much anticipated Bobbi Brown ad campaign image featuring Bobbi Brown Cosmetics celebrity spokesperson Katie Holmes, debuted today at counters. I must say that I think she is the perfect face for the brand.  

Katie is wearing the NEW Long-Wear Even Finish Compact Foundation in Natural, which is said to represent Bobbi’s philosophy of effortless natural beauty.  Long-Wear Even Finish Compact Foundation is available in 20 shades. 

“I’ve always been a fan of her makeup, because it’s so easy to apply. Her color palettes aren’t extreme, so when I first started wearing makeup it felt comfortable and I didn’t feel like I had too much on, which can happen. And then I met her, and she is just a lovely person – so generous. I think that it’s so exciting what she’s built with this company. She’s an incredible woman. So I’m thrilled on so many levels.”

Share on Twitter0 Share on Facebook0 Share on Pinterest0 Share on Google +11

 

Nick Barose, once again shares his magic with us!  Recently, he glammed up the gorgeous Sarah Shahi, from the show Fairly Legal. The look was from premiere in NYC for her new film Bullet to the Head with Stallone.

” We went with mauvy, cool tone pinks on eyes and lips instead of the usual fresh girly pinks because we wanted a more sophisticated sexy look of cool pinks as opposed to girly, fresh faced which regular bright pink make up would create”

GET THE LOOK:

Look for icy pink with a hint of blue, cool tones in it so you can wear pink and look more grown up as opposed to overly sweet and girly.

Share on Twitter2 Share on Facebook0 Share on Pinterest3 Share on Google +11

Bobbi Brown is one of the makeup lines that I often recommend to my clients, because of it’s simplicity and ease of use.  I have never found a color, or palette that doesn’t compliment the person in my chair, or make them feel beautiful (without feeling overly made up).  For this week’s New York Fashion Week, Bobbi Brown worked with her new celebrity face, Katie Holmes for her Holmes & Yang Fall Fashion Show.

Bobbi Brown Brighten, Sparkle & Glow

There is something to be said about starting off the New Year with a fresh start, and a new spring in our step.  And, I believe the same should be said about your makeup routine.

I am personally loving the new launch by Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. Her new “Brighten, Sparkle & Glow” collection is full of products that perk up the skin, and add a shimmer to the face.  During the winter gloom, these are the type of products I crave.  Something that revives my glow. 

The Collection Includes:

My favorites from the line include: 

  • The Brightening Finish Powder:  Bobbi Brown has said that she uses this powder “when she needs a lift”.  I couldn’t agree more. It hydrates with mulberry and grape extracts and keeps the skin looking refreshed. 
  • Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener: I have bragged about this product since way back in 2009 (original post here).  This is a must have product for your purse, and instantly refreshes tired eyes and re-hydrates concealer.
