Now that the artificial heat has turned on, with the exception of today, it means time for a switch in skincare and other things. I’ll start with Ormonde Jayne Tolu. I adore this warmer scent by UK niche perfumery Ormonde Jayne–one of my all time favorite brands.Tolu Eau de Parfum is created with pure Peruvian Tolu resin and is laced with golden frankincense and amber. A heady mix of orange blossom and clary sage is consolidated with intense citrus notes, taking the wearer on a sensual Oriental journey. Top: Juniper Berry, Orange Blossom and Clary Sage. Heart: Orchid, Moroccan Rose and Muguet. Base: Tolu, Tonka Bean, Golden Frankincense and Amber. It’s warm unique and unlike any other scent I’ve tried. While it’s similar to amber scents it’s not nearly as sweet as amber which is why I love it. I highly recommend checking it out.
Surratt Surreal Skin Foundation is not new to me. I reviewed it HERE. I tend to reach for it more in the fall-spring months and now that it’s cooler I’m happy to use it again. I find myself using shade 6 now. Originally I thought this shade was too cool for me, but it works best in general. I could use a tad more yellow in it but it’s close enough. I love the great coverage with a satin skin like finish.
I knew Cle De Peau Beaute Radiant Fluid Foundation would be perfect for cooler weather. It has dry oils & this weightless feel combined with enough hydration for fall and winter. I wear shade O30 and review is HERE. I love that it has a buildable light finish.
Perricone MD Hyalo Plasma is this amazing gel hydrator combing multiple forms of hyaluronic acid. It’s amazing to layer in the colder months for a great boost of weightless yet intense hydration. It replaces my hydrating serums in the fall and winter months. I talked about it HERE.
Paula’s Choice killed it when they made the RESIST Omega+ Complex. It’s a super hydrating creamy serum to light lotion. It can be used as a lotion for some skin types. It’s not quite enough for me alone, I need to layer it. It’s perfect for a hydrating winter boost of creamy hydration. More coming.
Votary London Super Seed Facial Oil. This is amazing. I took forever to finally splurge and grab it. It so lush and hydrating yet not heavy. Quickly this became one of my favorite facial oils. More to come.
Tom Ford Lip Color in Devore. I grabbed this on my recent trip to the Houston Galleria mall. I tried it on in the store, took it home and went “what did I do?” thinking this was too deep and brown for me. It’s oddly sheer for the Tom Ford Lip Color formula (usually more pigmented) and more of a pinky brown than brown like it looks in the tube. I quite like it. Don’t be scared of how it looks in the tube. More to come.
I was so in love with OSKIA Renaissance Cleansing Gelfor years. I took a break from it to explore other options for a while. This oil based cleansing balm gel removes all makeup and emulsifies to rinse clean away. It has the best light scent as well. Review HEREand HERE. It’s just amazing.
Votary London Clarifying Cleansing Oil is a lovely lightweight oil cleanser. The cloth flannel it comes with is superb as well. I use this even though I don’t have blemish prone skin. I love the lightweight feel compared to heavier oil cleansers. No real scent either. More to come.
Cuvee Beauty reached out to me and asked if I wanted to try a few things. The brands hair care is based on Champagne and since I love Champagne that was an easy yes. Out of the three items I played with the Champagne Spray is my absolute favorite from the bunch. It’s even earned a spot in my favorite of all time hair texture/sea salt sprays. It gives me perfectly textured hair with no crunchy or sticky heavy feel. My hair feels soft, weightless and perfectly textured and wavy. Love it.
