Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque
This is the product we are most excited to try in 2019. That’s an understatement. We can’t recall ever being so excited to try a product before. It has so many amazing reviews and people we really trust have recommended it over and over. It’s a cooling Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque by Aesop. If you have never been to one of these stores, you have to go, they are ridiculously beautiful and seem to be popping up everywhere these days. It’s pretty much like walking into our dream bathroom closet. Don’t you wish there was such a thing as a ‘pantry’ for all your skincare products?
Their hand creams are incredible but apparently their masques are even better. We tend to go for products that are gently but effective and don’t irritate sensitive skin and this has all sorts of calming ingredients in it like aloe vera, rosehip seed, and parsley seed. We can’t wait to try this since it’s great for dry winter skin. Oh and we adore their packaging and the smells of their formulas are just so yummy and herbal!
Product Description: A lightweight formulation with a complex blend of anti-oxidant and skin-softening ingredients in a soothing Aloe Vera base. Hydrates, calms and fortifies the skin.
Fabulous Face Oil
We can vouch that this oil is true to it’s name. An exceptionally hydrating formulation boosted with purifying botanicals that detoxify, decongest and balance skin. Made with Juniper berry it’s great for combination skin and it doesn’t leave your skin with an oily finish. This is on our most wanted list because it’s AMAZING and we just finished it.
Squalane + Glycolic Renewal Facial
This is a product made by Biossance. It includes 3 products in one: It’s an exfoliator when used like a face wash, a peel when a fine layer is applied on the skin for about one to two minutes, anda mask when used for roughly three to six minutes. Your skin will be left soft and smoother than ever, even going as far as to improve texture. You can thank the squalane (as well as hyaluronic acid) for the hydration and the glycolic acid (plus lactic, malic and tartaric acids) for the renewal. Bonus: its natural ingredients make sure it’s gentle on even the most sensitive of skin.
For the first time ever, Zara has lipstick and the colors are PERFECTION. Our favorite one is this velvety matte mauve (shade UM11). They’re highly pigmented and they’ve added vitamin E to keep the cracks away. The packaging is sleek and simple (of course). This shade is perfect for daily wear but they also have some gorgeous bold shades if you’re feeling adventurous. We can’t wait to see what else Zara delivers in the beauty department this year!
C.E.O. Rapid Flash Brightening Serum
URGH. We can’t ignore this Sunday Riley anymore. It’s one of the most brands on instagram and it’s constantly talked about by beauty bloggers and influencers but it’s pretty pricey and we’ve just been worried it wouldn’t live up to all the hype. However, it’s been long enough that we feel we have to try this now. It wouldn’t still be a holy grail item with rave reviews and a cult following if it wasn’t effective right!?
Product description: A highly-potent, fast-absorbing serum infused with 15 percent THD ascorbate (vitamin C) to fight the look of dullness, dark spots, and discolorations, while instantly increasing brightness, radiance, and luminosity. It’s made with a very high quality type of vitamin C and reviews often mention that this works to fade dark spots when other vitamin C serums don’t.
