My Beauty Faves Week of December 22-28, 2014 — Z Skin Systems, Kesh Beauty, essence, Morgan Taylor and got2b

A hope you all had a fab Christmas.  New Year’s Eve is around the corner! There is so much going on, my skin has to be flawless and my make-up has to be long-wearing, plus, of course, I need gorgeous nails and hair!

The following products help with all of that!

 ZSS Skincare Method NO. 1: Radiant Skin Formula
ZSS Skincare Method NO. 1: Radiant Skin Formula

ZSS Skincare Method NO. 1: Radiant Skin Formula ($160 USD) — Each monthly package contains a 30-day supply of 0.5oz Nutri-Serum and dietary supplements. ZZSS Skincare Method No.1 for Radiant Skin helps keep skin radiant in spite of environmental challenge, supports healthy skin with age, promotes skin hydration and reduces redness caused by the skin’s exposure to the outside world.* This system is made from naturally sourced ingredients that engage the internal and external science of beautiful skin. Featuring our signature Nutri-Serum — ­to help repair damaged, dry and sensitive skin, diffuse redness, and provide skin firming and toning.

What I think: I have been testing this for a few weeks and have noticed that my skin is less red than before and is very hydrated.  The serum is absorbed right into the skin, so I have been using it day and night and really like it!  My skin tone also seems clearer.
