Anastasia Soare, the Definitive Brow and Eye Expert, introduces two new skin care products to the popular Anastasia Beverly Hills line. Following the success of her cosmetics line, Anastasia debuted the Line Erasing Serum in August. This lightweight serum is designed for all skin types and promises to soothe, soften, hydrate and lift your eyes without fillers or invasive surgery.
In January 2010, the second skin care product – Sheer Moisture Crème SPF 30 – will launch exclusively at Nordstrom.
When it comes to skin care, there’s only one thing scarier to me than benzoyl peroxide in the ingredient list (I’m severely allergic)…and that’s the words “deep cleansing” on the label.
All of the deep cleaning cleansers I’ve used have left my skin feeling desiccated and looking like peeling paint. So when I received a sample of Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Gel, I almost gifted it to one of my friends. But I’m glad that I decided to give it a whirl because it’s absolutely fabulous.
Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Gel sucks the dirt and grime out of pores without sucking the life out of your skin. When you rinse it off, your face feels refreshingly clean – never dry and tight. I highly recommend it – especially for dry, acne prone complexions.
Now, kids…what’s the moral of this story? Don’t judge a cleanser by its label.
I’m in the market for a new winter moisturizer, so I decided to hit up The Beauty Bloggerati for some expert advice.
I’ve been loving Clarins Multi-Active Day Early Wrinkle Correction Cream. It moisturizes my dry/combo skin without breaking me out. Plus, it never leaves my neck with a gross, sticky feeling. –Karen, Makeup and Beauty Blog
I’ve been using Dermalogica’s Active Moist for a little while now, it is perfect for my oily skin especially in warmer weather because it’s so light but now that it’s getting colder out, I’m trying a richer moisturizer. Right now I’m giving Elizabeth Arden’s Prevage Day Ultra Protection Anti-aging Moisturizer with SPF30. So far I’m loving the results I’m seeing. It’s soothing some would-be rosacea spots that seem to be trying to form on my skin and some hormonal acne dryness. It is a tad rich for my skin but I’d rather deal with that then some of the other issues I’ve been battling. –Carla, Product Girl
I have dry skin and when the weather turns cold I really have to baby it. I have found comfort in Liz Earle Superskin Concentrate Serum. While the scent is actually quite strong and not appealing to me, I’ve learned to accept it because of the wonderful things it does for my skin! –Tammy, A Mom in Red High Heels
I love Chanel Sublimage for cold winter weather. It’s a bit heavy for me for my normal to oily skin in the summer, but it’s perfect for the blustery windy days of January through March. –Amber, Beauty Blogging Junkie
I am addicted to Fresh Repair & Restore Face Balm normal – combo. Not only does it smell amazing but the texture is beautiful and it melts into your skin leaving it hydrated and supple. –Lisa, These Lips Are Made For Glossin’
I have sensitive dry/combination skin and I absolutely love using Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion with the pump, which I carry in my purse. –Jennifer, Beyond Beauty Basics
I have combination skin: definitely gets oily on my T-zone, and dry in other areas. I also have crazy sensitive skin, so I look like I’m sunburned sometimes (even if it’s 10 degrees outside). I have just started using the Lierac Paris Creme Mesolift at night, because it has a ton of antioxidants, and hasn’t made me break out. However, a more budget friendly night cream for ladies (that never fails), is just plain ole Vaseline cream (not petroleum). It’s affordable, it’s simple and it rarely irritates the skin (and it’s perfect as an eye cream and lip moisturizer too!) –Bailey, Makeover Momma

Mad Men star Christina Hendricks knows that the best accessory a woman can have on the red carpet is luminous skin. Which is why her makeup artist, Georgie Eisdell relied on La Mer products for the 2009 Emmy Awards.
Georgie said, “The look we went for with Christina had a little 20′s influence. I wanted it to keep Christina’s makeup really fresh, clean and elegant. I prepared her skin with La Mer’s The Moisturizing Lotion – it’s perfect to hydrate the skin with being greasy and a perfect base for foundation. Next, I love La Mer’s Treatment Fluid Foundation SPF 15 for Christina. It is light on the skin but gives excellent coverage where needed. Under her eyes I used La Mer’s new Radiant Concealor SPF 25 – a genius product, it goes on so easily and does not cake under the eye. Before I started on her eye I lathered her lips with La Mer’s The Lip Balm. I love using this on Christina; she has full lips so keeping them hydrated is really important and when it’s time to apply lipstick it goes on beautifully.”
