Because sometimes you have to fake it before you make it…
My skin, the past few years at least, has been pretty amazing. Sure, I occasionally break out but it is NOTHING compared to the cystic acne I had on one side of my face (three cheers for being non-symetrical) circa 2007-2008. That was a fun year (insert sarcasm here).
Anywho, lately I’ve been noticing quite a few “blurring” or skin-perfecting treatments come out in the market, and for good reason…because our skin isn’t perfect 100% of the time and it’s nice to have a savior. Here are three of my favorite finds:
The Body Shop Wonderblur: It’s a face primer, technically (and a good one at that!), but I’ve noticed that this stuff really does “blur” out any fine lines and pores, creating the blurring/perfecting effect…kinda like MAGIC.
Kate Somerville Prime Perfection Dual Action Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 15: You know I love me some Kate Somerville. This one is also a primer (with sun protection!), but I what I LOVE about this prime, in particular, is that it’s super silky and also infused with advanced light-diffusing technology that blurs imperfections (zits, redness, lines, etc.) and creates a “soft-focus effect” – kinda like what a camera would do. Of course, the SPF is never is a bad thing, and it’s also blended with Matrixyl 3000 and nourishing shiitake extract, which work together to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines, while supporting the production of collagen and elastin. So, yeah, this product definitely has a LOT to offer.
Colorescience Even Up Clinical Pigment Perfector SPF 50: Colorescience is another one of my favorites (I especially love Sunforgettable) but this new 3-in-1 is also pretty fab. This patent pending formula instantly evens skin tone (and provides SPF 50 protection!), while its highly effective skin-brightening complex, LUMIRA, addresses the appearance of skin discoloration. It’s actually clinically shown to improve the appearance of skin discoloration, which means it’s PROVEN to actually make your skin look “perfect.”
