Liz Earle Superskin Range

Liz Earle’s Superskin collection is a well executed offering of products that add moisture and to nourishment to dry, sensitive, mature, and stressed skin.

Just know that when you use a Liz Earle product, you’ll get 100% quality and satisfaction with each and every product. It’s a line that I absolutely trust because it’s responsibly made with top-notch ingredients. She still makes one of the best cleansers I’ve ever tried which I still use it daily, so I wasn’t at all surprized when her new Superskin Eye & Lip Treatment $50 became my go-to eye cream for night and day. Fine lines vanish immediately but without a tightening effect, plus it’s great for those lines around the mouth to prevent lipstick from bleeding.

25% plant oils are used in her new richer than rich Body Cream ($50)that creates a glowy radiance and the appearance of healthy skin. It’s honestly the most moisture I’ve experienced in a cream, but it isn’t the least bit greasy.

Also new to the lineup is her Bust Treatment ($50) to lift visibly plump and firm skin that’s lost its elasticity using kigelia extract.

Her Superskin Concentrate ($70) contains pretty much everything you’d want in a moisture booster; oils of argan and organic rosehip, neroli, lavender and chamomile and vitamin E. It’s 100% plant oils for all skin types to help calm, soothe, and add some needed moisture.

Worth checking out is her new Try-Me kit containing smaller sizes of all 5 Superskin products along with her signature Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser (the one I use), and an Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer.

Jurlique Calendula-Lavender Hydrating Essence

Do you ever have those moments of total and complete clarity when you feel like your mind is so still that problems seem distant and the answers so available? Uh- yeah. So before you write that off as total weirdo hippie nonsense, this happened to me today after a particularly grueling yoga session when we were in savasana, my favorite yoga pose ever.

Our instructor came around with the usual post-practice treat of washcloths they submerge in a mix of ice water and lavender essential oil to be wrung out and placed into our hands. I carefully created a tent over my face with mine making just enough extra room to breathe in, filling my lungs with the crisp lavender while cooling my body back down. Amazing right?

What’s even more amazing is finding that same experience right at home with a quick remedy for stressed skin and minds. Just drop a few drops of Jurlique’s Calendula-Lavender Hydrating Essence into a basin of water and allow your washcloth to soak up the goodness pressing it into the face to calm and soothe skin that’s inflamed, dry, before a mask, and in the tub. Two calming essences come together for a powerhouse experience in one huge bottle so you can find your Zen without the sore muscles.

Bioelements Recovery Serum

What was once a box that sat on my desk collecting dust and begging to be used, is now my go-to, all-purpose serum when my skin is feeling over-exfoliated, stressed, or just for a makeup free day.

Bioelements Recovery Serum restores your moisture barrier by providing a silky seal over skin leaving a smooth, glassy finish. Gentle enough to use on damaged skin that just needs a little love, as a primer under makeup, or even for a healthy skin finish when there’s no time for foundation. You’ll find so many uses for this serum once you see how great your skin looks because of it.

It’s filled with chamomile, ceramides, and lavender along with a short list of known heeling, moisturizing, protecting, and soothing all-stars for a concise but targeted result.

$62, Amazon.com, Select Spas in North America and Australia.

Suzanne aux Bains

Unknown-1

Walk through your bathroom and you’ll see a differing array of brands. It’s difficult to find a line that’s 100% well… good. Suzanne aux Bains is an exception to this rule largely in part because it’s completely free of parabens, phenoxyethanol, PEG, mineral oils, silicone, colorants or synthetic fragrances. Plant, marine and organic ingredients from the Mediterranean are used to insure efficacy and silky smooth skin.

My favorites are the popular Regenerating Night Treatment which leaves your face glowing, the Relaxing Organic Massage Oil which absorbs quickly but really eases muscles and the Nourishing Body Milk that soothes even the most sensitive skin with the perfect amount of moisture.- all of which have the most amazing scents.

Dermalogica Barrier Repair

Dermalogica reigns supreme in the world of professional skincare. They really are the big fish with a complete arsenal of skin soothing, age busting, acne fighting all stars while managing to remain cruelty free and technologically ahead of the curve. Barrier Repair is a unique, waterless, colorless silicone based moisturizer that protects your skin by keeping the bad stuff out (pollutants) and the good stuff in (moisture).

It has an amazingly velvety feel that’s not greasy in the least, and it also provides a great primer for your foundation so it lasts the day without changing color or wearing off. I find it’s best for those who are sensitive, acne prone or just don’t like a heavy moisturizer.
