Get Cullen-Perfect Skin with Dermalogica

dermalogica Get Cullen Perfect Skin with DermalogicaDermalogica is a favorite brand of The Twilight Saga: New Moon. On set, Makeup Designer Norma Hill-Patton routinely used the products to create the best canvas for dressing up the vampires and werewolves.

“All of the Actors required a lot of makeup and it was on their faces for long periods of time, so we needed to take particular care of their skins,” said Hill-Patton, New Moon Makeup Designer. “Vampires don’t perspire, don’t grow facial hair, don’t get lines and certainly don’t get blemishes!

We loved Dermalogica’s active moist which we used on most of the cast as it is quite universal and suits most types of skin. The precleanse was invaluable for cleansing off the body make up, especially because we had to apply a make up fixative and it was difficult to remove. But we didn’t want anything that was harsh or might induce a reaction. The intensive eye repair was great for keeping the fine lines around the eyes at bay. A tiny amount patted under the eye for final checks (on top of the makeup) did wonders to diminish the lines for close ups.

And finally, the shave system kit was used on all of the guys with great success! Again, it was really important to be sympathetic to their skins as they had to have a really close shave. I’m a great fan of the close shave oil and it can be used for wet shaves or electric shaves! We even had to shave some of them in the middle of the day to maintain the smooth look to their skin!

“My daily makeup regime includes Dermalogica sunscreen, said Ashley Green (aka Alice Cullen). They also have a really great special clearing booster for spot treatment on blemishes. It’s a little more involved on set with hot towel treatments and Dermalogica precleanse to get all that white makeup off. We use a lot Dermalogica products…I love the microfoliant!”

Tinsel Corey (aka Emily, the pack mother) says, “My daily skin regimen is a cleanser, toner, moisturizer. Once a week an exfoliant, and a hydrating mask. I alternate between products though, one of my favorites is Dermalogica. One of main things that also helps with my skin is taking my multi-vitamins, zinc and flaxseed oil caps.”

Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Gel: Don’t Judge a Cleanser By Its Label

vichy+normaderm+deep+cleansing+gel Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Gel: Dont Judge a Cleanser By Its LabelWhen 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.

Class dismissed.

Beauty Bloggerati Spotlight: Cold Weather Moisturizers

Beauty+Bloggerati+Spotlight Beauty Bloggerati Spotlight: Cold Weather Moisturizers
Girl, when the mercury drops, it’s time to put away your summer moisturizer and break out something a little richer. Heaters and cold weather can zap the moisture from your skin, so it’s important to replenish what you skin is lacking.

I’m in the market for a new winter moisturizer, so I decided to hit up The Beauty Bloggerati for some expert advice.

Clarins+Multi Active+Day+Early+Wrinkle+Correction+Cream Beauty Bloggerati Spotlight: Cold Weather MoisturizersI’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’
Clinique+Dramatically+Different+Moisturizing+Lotion Beauty Bloggerati Spotlight: Cold Weather Moisturizers
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
