Our latest beauty product discoveries over the last year are products that help keep our skin glowing, even in our 40’s. What are your beauty secrets and weapons? Healthy skin and hair are always IN.
Tatcha Facial Cleanser
This classic rice enzyme powder makes me feel like a Japanese geisha as you add a little water to the powder in your hand to make a creamy facial cleanser that gently removes all impurities. My skin feels soft and deep cleaned without a harsh scrub. The water-activated enzyme powder exfoliant and cleanser consists of rice bran, papaya and anti-aging HADASEI-3™ Complex. Reveal your skin’s natural glow.
Hourglass’s Veil Mineral Primer
This silky smooth cream acts like a smooth shellac primer even-ing out every crevice and pore turning your face into porcelain doll perfection. The primer used before makeup application not only helps prevent sunburn with SPF 15 but the oil-free silky formula conceals redness, minimizes poors, soften fine lines and wrinkles, repels water, and is the perfect canvas for a flawless make-up application, especially for weddings or major events.
LUE Beauty’s Balance, a Jean Seo Skin Solution Set
Our favorite product in the solution set designed for men, women, and teens is Balance. This hydrating and calming serum helps control oil and shine, while minimizing pores most likely due to Hyaluronic acid. The kit designed to “Erase flaws, Balance skin, Clear imperfections” also consists of Erase and Spot Control. Erase is like a mini jar of oat flour powder that you add water to in your hands to make a paste. This cleanser/exfoliator, brightening powder reduces the appearance of imperfections leaving your face feeling soft and smooth.
Arcona’s Magic Black Ice Mask
Feel the heat as the black volcanic exfoliating mask deep cleans your face with Icelandic volcanic sand that acts as a magnet to attract congestion and excess oil. When you wash the mask off, the little sand particles act as a gentle scrub. The black lava and charcoal purify and minimize the appearance of pores to leave skin clearer and more balanced. Mandelic acid helps to brighten and exfoliate leaving you with luminous, firmer, younger looking skin. All Arcona products are formulated with pure, natural ingredients cold processed in small batches to keep them fresh, active, and super effective.

Arcona’s Four O’Clock Flower Daily Hydrator
The creamy gel absorbs quickly, hydrates without feeling greasy, and smells yummy. The daily hydrator not only hydrates, but calms and strengthens skin. Derived from the Four O’Clock Flower (mirabilis jalapa), a complex of botanical lipids improves texture and elasticity while helping to restore the skin’s protective barrier. Green tea and Chamomile extracts help neutralize free radicals and calm skin. Probiotic lactobacillus and D-beta Fructan soothe and help support skin’s defense system.
Moroccan Magic Lip Balm (not only for lips)
Sold at CVS, the all natural and organic essential oil balm soothes and moisturizes lips in fresh, fun scents like Rose, Peppermint Eucalyptus, Lemon Thyme, and Coconut Almond. Try the Rose on your wrists and on your neck for a lasting sweet smell. Coconut Almond makes you feel like you are in the tropics.
