NEW LAUNCH: Arbonne Bio-Hydria Skincare

I know you have seen the posts in my feed about this new launch so now it’s time for you to learn about the individual products themselves. They work together beautifully with each product targeting a specific area.

Bio-Hydria is infused with organically farmed witch hazel. When combined with Arbonne’s botanical formulations and sustainably sourced aloe vera it leaves the skin feeling incredibly soft and supple.






Bio-Hydria Eye Gel ($42, Arbonne.com)

I pat this gel around my eyes and the pearlescent pigments help visibly brighten the appearance of dark circles. It also makes my under eye area hydrated which therefor over time I believe will eventually put an end to the puffiness too.





Bio-Hydria Gel Cleanser ($24, Arbonne.com)

This gel cleanser lathers into a delicate foam that cushions your skin as it rids the surface of makeup and impurities. Witch hazel in the formula helps soothe the skin so it’s left feeling comfortable, not taut. I love having this in my routine now as my skin feels so clean after using the gel.





Bio-Hydria Gel Cream ($40, Arbonne.com)

This semi-thick cream absorbs quickly into the skin in order to soothe and moisturize it. It contains botanicals like organically farmed witch hazel and sustainably sourced aloe vera that leave your skin feeling smooth and radiant.



Bio-Hydria Liquid Serum ($45, Arbonne.com)

An innovative serum that boasts a crushed jelly texture that breaks to a cool, thin layer over your skin to provide instant hydration as our proprietary sustainable edulis cellular water helps maintain critical moisture.


Key Product Highlights You Should Know About Bio-Hydria:

  • Sustainably sourced aloe vera, containing vitamins and minerals that are taken from the inner part of the leaf, help moisturize to soothe and support skin’s natural ability to maintain a healthy-looking glow.
  • Dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested
  • Suitable for all skin types
  • Vegan, cruelty free

NEW: MY21 Face Sheet Masks

Face sheet masks have been very popular for quite a long time yet their ingredients seem to be getting richer and more focused on promoting results. MY21 is the new generation K-beauty brand that just introduced four breakthrough masks with blends of more than 9 super nutrients, antioxidants and botanicals. They are easy to apply and were seen backstage at many fashion shows.

I sampled Repair Infinity, Youthful Infinity and Moisture Infinity. I must admit that I am not great at keeping up with the routine of sheet masks yet I know need to. As I am getting older, I am becoming less focused on my skin routine which is EXACTLY the opposite of what I should be doing!

After one use of their Moisture Infinity face sheet mask , my skin felt softer to the touch and appeared more radiant. I vow to take better care of my skin right now as I know it will thank me later.

Learn more about the brand at www.my21mask.com or on Instagram @my21mask

Please note that these masks work for any skin type and are dermatologist-tested. They are free of harsh chemicals, artificial fragrances and parabens. My skin is sensitive and they work for me!

Mantra Mask: Hemp CBD Coconut Eye Gels

Years ago, I tried filler. Most recently I tried approximately 6 different products over the span of a year. My puffy under eye area not only ages me but it also bothers me emotionally as it changes the way I feel about myself. I do not know what to do as surgery is so costly and I do not see it is a necessary thing to do right now at 50 years young. 

I love eye gel masks and these from Mantra Mask are a bit different than most. They leave the eye area tight and not slimy nor grimy feeling like some other eye masks do. I have such sensitive eyes and these did not make my eyes tear up nor sting. My under eye area appeared less puffy after just two uses- which I am happy to report! I know that topical CBD’s have anti- inflammatory properties so that is most likely why my skin feels more taught. I am a bit old school in my CBD knowledge and now I want to try more products with CBD as their main ingredient. 

Bring on the products! Thank you Mantra Mask for these and I look forward to sampling your other products. I do believe the analgesic properties of CBD could be incredibly helpful for most. Cheers to creating results driven products.

LASHIFY Announces it's First-Ever Retail Partnership

BEAUTY POP UP ALERT! I love Lashify and it's ease of use and am very excited to tell you of their latest retail collaboration starting on October 7th in the Bloomingdale's 59th Street location!

Lashify, the groundbreaking DIY lash extension system, is creating its first retail collaboration: a pop-up shopping destination located in Bloomingdale's 59th Street store. Located on the ground floor, the pop-up will be open from October 7 through November 3.

"Bloomingdale's is not only a timeless institution, but for many New Yorkers, it's also a tradition," says Lashify founder Sahara Lotti. "Not to mention their new beauty floor is popping!"

For the uninitiated, Lashify is a wholly unique innovation for the lash category. Unlike false lashes, which typically look fake and cause damage, Lashify Gossamer lashes have a thin, flexible base that goes on underneath the natural lash. Application is as easy as using mascara, and Lashify's WhisperLight flexible bond cushions and protects as it holds. Gossamers are cruelty-free and can be stacked for infinite combinations of curl, volume, and length.

At Bloomingdale's, shoppers will be able to discover the brand's award-winning lineup of Gossamer lashes, tools, and accessories—including the NEW "F" Fluffy Gossamer lashes for the ultimate fluttery eye. A pop-up exclusive Black Control Kit with a Graphite Fuse Control Wand (the patented tool for fool-proof application) will be available while supplies last. In addition, a selection of Prismatic Gossamers in vivid colors such as green, blue, and violet offer holiday party-goers a new way to look festive.



Walk-ins are welcome, but for a next-level lash experience, appointments may be booked in advance at https://lashifybloomingdalesappointment.as.me. Services include a 15-minute Lashify express application ($45) and the 30-minute Lashify Experience ($150): a free lash application, mini application lesson, and a Control Kit. Additionally, on October 16 at 6 to 8 PM time, Lotti will make a personal appearance at Studio 59 on the second floor. "Bloomingdale's is chic and luxurious, but also inviting and accessible to everyone, and that's exactly what Lashify stands for," Lotti says. "We offer the best of the best while being inclusive."

The Lashify pop-up shop is located at Bloomingdale's, 1000 Third Avenue at 59th Street, New York, NY and runs from October 7 through November 3. Store hours are Monday-Saturday 10:00 a.m.-8:30p.m. and Sundays 11 a.m.-7:00 p.m.

New Launch from NATURALLY SERIOUS: ILLUMI-NATION Anti-Fatigue Power Serum

I can't lie- I was excited the moment I read that this new product from Naturally Serious stated it could reduce the appearance of wrinkles within just 24 hours. Will Illumi-Nation Anti-Fatigue Power Serum actually do this?

I have applied now for a few days (as instructed/am and pm) and time will tell if such statements ring true yet it does make my skin appear more radiant! I like the idea of looking more youthful and the serum's natural blush color does absolutely add a certain glow to my skin. It's hard to say that it reduced the appearance of my wrinkles yet I definitely see a softer and more supple skin tone.

What the serum states:

The serum is all about anti-aging and reduces the appearance of wrinkles in just 24 hours.
It features a natural blush color that subtly illuminates leaving the skin with a healthy, radiant finish.
Like all Naturally Serious products, it is clean and ethically developed from formula to packaging.

This glossy anti-aging serum effortlessly melts into the skin for a dewy, glassy-skin radiance and reduces the appearance of wrinkles in just 24 hours. Illumi-Nation transforms the look of skin by smoothing and hydrating, leaving you with a brighter, healthier finish. Enriched with 1% Lavandox extracted from Spanish Lavender to reduce stress in the skin, and 3% Persian silk tree to improve the look of fine lines, uneven skin tone and texture caused by environmental aggressors, this serum transforms and hydrates for a naturally youthful and illuminated glow.

Price: $58, Available on NaturallySeriousSkin.com, Sephora.com and select Sephora stores
