Prescriptives Instant Gratification Skin Renewal Peel ($45.00)
Get instant gratification for tired, lackluster skin with this all-in-one dermabrasion-peel treatment that improves clarity, renews tone and immediately uncovers a smoother, more radiant complexion. Oil-free. Non-acnegenic. Ophthalmologist and dermatologist-tested. No fragrance.
GET THIS PRODUCT. I am rarely impressed so much by a product that I am compelled to write the review immediately after using it. Seriously, as soon as this product was rinsed off my face with lukewarm water, I was like, “OH MY GOD!!” I ran to my boyfriend and made him feel how utterly soft and smooth my face was (of course, I made him wash his hands before he did this!). I couldn’t stop feeling my own face, because I just could not get over how amazing my skin looked and felt right after using it. I really appreciate a product that is honest about what it can do, and I was skeptical of this living up to its name of “Instant Gratification,” but I am quite happily proven wrong. I did wait 48 hours before writing up the review, just in case there were any side-effects–there were none. Just smooth skin! I can handle that!
Instantly your skin will soften, feel smoother, and even look a bit brighter, healthier. You would think with such amazing results that there would be a complicated application process, but you would be completely off the mark! Put a little product on your finger tips (a dab will do you) and massage onto damp skin in circular motions for about thirty seconds. Leave the mask on for five minutes. Wet fingertips with lukewarm water and massage in circulation motions for an additional thirty seconds. Rinse off using lukewarm water and pat face dry with a clean towel. That’s it! Now you have ultra silky soft skin that will be the envy of every person around you. You only need to use this product once a week, so please don’t let the price tag put you off. I think I will get at least 3 months worth of applications out of the tube (if not more), because you only need three pea-sizes worth (left cheek, right cheek, then forehead/nose/chin) or less.
Definitely check this product out if you have the chance; it is something I wholly recommend–so much so that it is now a staple in my beauty regimen.
MAC Cosmetics debuted a Fafi website (anyone remember the Barbie one last year?), and right now, you can sign up for notification as information is released. Thanks to Shefali for alerting us to it!
For Spring 2008, Zoya has two different collections, each with six shades, Blissful and Purity. Blissful is a beautiful collection of creamy pastels, while Purity is composed of sheerer pastels ideal for manicures (and I don’t know if it’s just me, but I have visions of bridal nails with these colors, too). Today I’d like to show you swatches from Blissful.
It was actually really hard to pick a favorite shade out of the six, because I loved them all! Let me say that one really versatile color is Penelope, which is a darker pink-peach color that’s incredibly creamy and goes on smooth. It isn’t too warm, so I think even cooler-toned hands can pull this one off with no issues. I think anyone entranced by pastels will find Laurie a very lovely shade of pale, milky pink. It is also a cream finish leaving fingers looking incredibly soft and feminine. Miley is much like Laurie, only it is a milky pastel lavender. Lulu is a warm shade of peach that’s soft and subtle, and I see this as a great shade for spring, but also a nice way to transition into summer. Zanna is a mauvey-purple with pink in it, and it also has a creamy finish. I found this applied so easily and well, with no streaking or worries about distribution. Felicity rosey color with golden shimmer, which makes it completely unlike the other five in the Blissful family. It’s a fun color, and I like that it is the odd-one-out with its shimmery composition. Overall, I liked the buildability and opacity of these pastel colors; they give me a way to get less in-your-face nails while still getting a good bit of color when I don’t want to opt for straight out sheers.
Check out swatches of the other five polishes… Continue reading →
