I have been testing the products below and love what they are doing for my skin!
Cle de Peau Makeup Remover Sheets ($38 USD) — Effectively lifts away hard-to-remove eye makeup while pampering delicate eye area skin with the feeling of a luxurious silk.
What I think: These are the fanciest makeup wipes I have ever used. I love the soft scent and the fact that they remove my waterproof eye makeup without irritating my skin or eyes. LOVE!
Pixi Glow Tonic ($29 USD) — Exfoliating facial glow tonic. It helps tone, firm and tighten the skin. It removes dead skin cells for healthier looking skin. For normal to dry, aging and sensitive skin. Alcohol free.
What I think: First of all, this smells amazing! It is a light floral and so good. After application, my skin is firmer and feels really soft. I like using it morning and night and love that it’s alcohol free.
Algenist Algae Brightening Mask ($59 USD) — The Algae Brightening Mask is a skincare powerhouse that harnesses the power of Algae to instantly smooth and brighten skin. This luxurious mask combines six different sources of algae with Alguronic Acid, Algenist’s patented ingredient which helps rejuvenate the skin for a more youthful appearance. After use, skin feels clean and detoxified with a boosted radiance, tone and texture. Within just 10 days of use those pesky pores are refined and fine lines appear softened.
What I think: I have used this mask once, and really like the results. My skin was firmer and my pores look reduced. I am going to try it a few more times and hope to get even better results!

illuMask™ Anti-Aging Phototherapy Mask ($30 USD) — The illuMask™ Anti-Aging Phototherapy Mask uses gentle red and infrared light wavelengths and uniformly distributes the light over the entire face for a short 15 minutes a day. Containing 30 treatments in one convenient, lightweight mask, the Anti-Aging Phototherapy Mask is an ultra-affordable step in your skincare routine that delivers clinically proven results. Safe for all skin types and tones, the gentle treatment does not emit any damaging UV rays. Clinical results showed illuMask™ Anti-Aging Phototherapy Mask to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in as little as two weeks.
What I think: I have tried this once and have a hard time leaving it on my face for 15 minutes, I can’t see out of it and there is a fairly bright light. I didn’t see any results so I will try it again a few times to see if it helps my wrinkles.

Beautyblender® Royal ($19.95 USD)– A makeup sponge applicator in royal purple, the it color of 2014. Beautyblender® is the first ergonomically designed non-disposable sponge applicator that allows you to flawlessly apply your makeup. It’s designed to be cleaned with its partner blendercleanser®—making it super eco-friendly. It comes with an instructional pamphlet so you can quickly master your application technique.
When wet, beautyblender doubles in size and becomes even softer, returning to its original size when it air dries. Its package can serve as a pedestal for drying it on your vanity. Not only is the smaller end the best applicator for concealer under the eyes and around the nose, but it’s also ideal for achieving dramatic results with your eye shadow. Feel free to use the beautyblender with all types of makeup, including loose powder and mineral cosmetics.
What I think: I love the beautyblender. It is a perfect way to apply primers, bb creams, concealers, foundations…anything you use! I like to use mine dry, but many love to use it wet to soften the look of foundation. Any way you use it, your skin looks flawless and you can layer on your color cosmetics.
