Radiance Revealed: Laura Geller Balance-n-Brighten Color Correcting Foundation
Control oil and brighten skin with Laura Geller’s Balance-n-Brighten Color Correcting Foundation. This lightweight powder is a great alternative to heavy foundations for summer.
Balance-n-Brighten Color Correcting Foundation is loaded with the age-fighting, anti-oxidant protection of Centella Asiatica and White Tea. The healing properties of Centella Asiatica have been known for centuries. Its leaves and stems are used in traditional Chinese, African, and Ayurvedic medicine. In Chinese medicine, centella asiatica is sometimes referred to as the “fountain of youth” due to its healing properties and positive effects on wellbeing.
The baked powder is designed with swirls of soft tan and cream, its smooth and silky texture helps offset ruddiness, brightens sallow tones, and balances most complexions. The coverage is medium, buildable and neutralizes any imperfections – creating perfectly flawless skin. It feels non-exsistant on the skin and provides a natural brightening effect. Free from mineral oil and parabens, Balance-n-Brighten Color Correcting Foundation is my new favorite powder foundation for the summer.
Tried & Tested: Dr. Jart+ Renewalist Melting Cream
I am always on the look-out for new and innovative products. I have a strong obsession (borderline neurosis) with international skincare. From French pharmacies to Asian markets, there is always a treasure to be found.
Dedicated to his lifelong goal of satisfying patients, Dr. Jart combined his medical background with a team of 21 skilled dermatologists to develop his eponymous skincare brand. Based in Korean, the line that consists of targeted cosmeceuticals that not only make the skin look good but also deliver long-term benefits. Free of controversial sulfates, petrochemicals, artificial dyes and fragrances, the Dr. Jart+ brand is continuously reinventing skincare.
I recently tried and tested Dr. Jart+ Renewalist Melting Cream. As the name suggests, this innovative moisturizer melts deep into the skin, renewing it’s natural luster. Formulated with moringa oil, argan oil and jojoba oil, this moisturizer delivers soothing hydration. It contains antioxidants to improve elasticity and platol white-c complex to brighten the skin. A clever addition to this product is the use of sebum-controlling powder. This will help control excess oils in the skin without clogging pores and qualifies this product to work as both a moisturizer and a primer.
The unique texture of this product is what makes it one-of-a-kind. It presents itself as a solid, balm-like consistency. A tiny spatula is provided to scoop-out the needed amount and as the product comes in contact with body heat – it melts seamlessly into the skin. The product absorbs quickly, penetrating deep into the skin’s layers with no greasiness or heavy residuals. It leaves the skin fresh, silky and radiant.
The Dr. Jart+ brand is available in the US at your local Sephora.
