Lash Topcoat: Anastasia Beverly Hills Lash Genius
Waterproof when you want it to be. Anastasia Beverly Hills Lash Genius instantly waterproofs, refreshes, and protects any mascara all day, without the typical drying or clumping. It’s advanced, lightweight formula glides on smooth, dries quickly, and gives your lashes a glossy lacquer finish that lasts all day. Feel un-phased in the face of a downpour or smug at your best friend’s wedding, Lash Genius will protect you.
Lash Genius comes in a typical mascara-type tube with short, stiff bristles. The formula is a slightly milky-colored gel that feels a bit tacky to the touch. It applies beautifully with a slightly wet texture that instantly adds shine and gloss to the lashes. Lash Genius is fragrance, paraben, and cruelty free.
Never decide on which formula to purchase of your favorite mascara again. I never seem to buy waterproof mascara. The formula, on me, feels thicker and heavier and it is a pain to remove. Don’t get me wrong, Lash Genius is a pain to remove, however, it does the job of a waterproof formula (better) and lash lacquer – all-in-one. So… it’s worth it.

Skin Soothing: Fresh Rose Face Mask
Dry skin is the most common result of seasonal weathering. Cold winter air lacks humidity and dries up natural oils in the skin, causing it to lose moisture and dull the complexion.
The Rose Face Mask by Fresh is an ultra-hydrating treatment that not only moisturizes, but soothes the skin. It reduces redness and calms inflammation – transforming the appearance of lackluster skin.
The Rose Face Mask contains a gentle blend of ultra-soothing ingredients. Pure rose floral water rejuvenates the senses and helps to diminish redness and uneven skintone. Cucumber extract acts as an anti-inflammatory while pure aloe-vera gel cools and refreshes the skin.
Protect your skin from winter woes this season with products that not only hydrate, but soothe and nourish the skin.
