If you can imagine applying color-tinted butter to your lips, this is it.
SkinCeuticals Resveratrol B E. Get to know it. You’ve probably read about this latest (and greatist) antioxidant breakthrough in skincare, and I’m here to tell you why it’s a must-have. Resveratrol is a potent antioxidant found in grapes, red wine, nuts, and other plant sources, and has gained a reputation as the “longevity molecule” because of the role it has been found to play in determining longevity and health span. Researchers believe that resveratrol can positively influence the processes that cause age-related deterioration and functional decline. So what does all that mean? SkinCeuticals worked for YEARS to find the right balance for this unstable ingredient since it’s proven to be basic gold for your skin.
I don’t feature very many products in my “You Need This” series quite simply because, well, I take telling someone that they NEED something VERY seriously. Life is full of little luxuries, especially when it comes to beauty, and this GLAMGLOW THIRSTYMUD HYDRATING TREATMENT is honestly a-mazing, and worth every penny. So what is it? Quite simply, an ingredient-packed moisture mask. What makes it awesome is that it’s full of hyaluronic acid, a moisturizer that melts into skin, and clay particles that help lock in the moisturizing ingredients, leaving your skin soft and glowing. Now, THIRSTYMUD (I also love the name, btw), specifically calls out that it can be used on airplanes (e.g. “in flight”), which brings up an interesting question:
Have you ever used a facial mask on an airplane?
I, for one, have NOT. I was at an event earlier today and brought up the question to a few other beauty bloggers, and two of the ladies said that they have, in fact, used a mask on a plane. “A” cited that she didn’t care what she looked like but, for me, I’m more concerned about the fact that I’ll most likely forget that I have the mask ON and do something spazzy like touch my face or decide I need to put a scarf on. That’s classic me and after thinking about it some more, I’m now really curious about trying out a plane mask or, as I decided to call it, a “Plask.” GlamGlow says that you can apply the mask at the beginning of the flight and leave on for the full duration, which I assume means leave it on for as long as you want since a flight can range anywhere from 45 minutes to what? 24 hours? I’m headed to New York in May for a family function so I’m gonna test out this mask (ahem), PLASK, then.
My hair is still in recoup mode since I took my extensions out a few weeks ago, which is exactly why this was the perfect time to try the Fekkai ‘PrX Reparatives’ 3-Day Transformation Leave In Treatment, cause, I mean…my hair was thirsty, guys. Not gonna lie, committing to a 3-day program of anything is kind of rough for me but I DID actually use up each vial for all three days and I’m super happy with the results. Essentially the 3-Day Transformation is an intensive leave-in treatment that provides pretty immediate results, which is excellent for an impatient lady like myself. Each vial contains a dual-phase formula that, once activated, deeply nourishes and instantly revitalizes lifeless hair. In three uses, damage is transformed, leaving hair visibly smooth, shiny and soft to the touch. The product actually reinforces weak spots along the hair fiber where keratin loss has occurred and creates a protective shield that defends against styling and chemical damage. I’m sold.
