We’re starting to transition into those hot, steamy days and nights. To get us all ready, I am sharing some great new finds that I love – many of which I use every day. From an amazing new primer to a gorgeous and affordable eyeshadow palette, you’ll be sure to use these products to their very last drop.
Elysian Continuum Finishing Treatment
This product is a “filter in a bottle.” It is my new Holy Grail primer. Infused with powerful complexion-enhancing active ingredients, it literally blurs my imperfections and works well with all of my other skincare and makeup I use on a daily basis. My skin is still flawless at the end of the day when I go to wash my face. Available at The Gathering Shops, Garden State Plaza, Paramus.
M-61 Brilliant Cleanse
This cleanser is formulated with an anti-aging blend of four alpha beta hydroxy acids to smooth and brighten dull skin. I really love using products with acids in the ingredients because they really give me that gorgeous glowing skin. Available at Blue Mercury, Closter.
Allyson Rubino Cosmetics Highlighter in Luda
This gorgeous highlight is perfect for face and body. It has an amazing light vanilla fragrance and it doesn’t sit in fine lines. Available at Changing Heads Salon, Northvale.
Drunk Elephant Slaai Makeup Melting Butter Cleanser
My newest obsession is cleansing balms, and they should be yours too! I love how this cleansing balm melts away every trace of my makeup and gets my skin ready to be cleansed. The whole line by Drunk Elephant is a favorite clean beauty line of mine. Available at Sephora, Riverside Square Mall, Hackensack.
Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs
This product provides flawless cover to your skin covering up all imperfections. It then washes away in the shower. Available at Target, Paramus.
Dr. Roebucks Collagen Boosting Eye Treatment
Dr. Roebucks is a clean brand from Australia that I discovered this month. I love the thick texture, and it leaves me so hydrated, awake and less puffy. Available at Sephora, Paramus.
Kopari Coconut Charcoal Toothpaste
This all-natural toothpaste contains coconut and charcoal to soothe inflammation of gums, help whiten teeth and detoxify your whole mouth. I love the coconut mint flavor. Available at Kopari.com.
Trisha Watson Organics Face and Eye Oil
This is a great product by an actual farmer in Washington who believes in the philosophy of “seed to bottle.” I love how soothing and moisturizing this oil is and that the moisture lasts. Available at The Gathering Shops, Garden State Plaza, Paramus.
Kuumba Egyptian Musk
This is the perfect everyday scent. So much so, that I even use it on my three-year-old daughter. Rumor has it this was Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy’s favorite. The scent is so light and everyone asks what I am wearing all the time. Available on Amazon.com.
e.l.f. The New Classics Eyeshadow Palette
This is an affordable and gorgeous everyday palette. I create so many different looks using this palette. The formula is great and goes on flawlessly. Available at Harmon Discount, Closter.
