The future of skin care? Think outside the bottle, but don’t forget to also look back in time! As a huge fan of Japanese skin care, I’m excited to share this luxurious product as today’s OMG find. EDOBIO’s luxury soap is produced in Japan, thoughtfully made by hand from premium natural and plant-based ingredients. Inspired by the art and beauty of the Edo period in Japan, the line pays homage to the minimalism and simplicity of ancient beauty rituals, purposefully developing products with modern biotechnology techniques and advancements. The result? Gorgeous luxury beauty products with thoughtfully sourced ingredients for everyday skin concerns. But what’s more important to me is how their products actually work. This product in particular is a mild and luxurious foamy soap, perfectly suitable for sensitive skin on both the face and body. The powerhouse ingredient in the FLORADIANCE moisturizing soufflé soap is BiProGE, a lactic acid bacteria and cultured yeast based compound found in no other brand. It aids in both moisture retention and skin elasticity, but also helps cleanse away impurities and excess sebum. They use neither synthetic fragrances nor dyes, and no harsh foaming agents such as sulfates. Just rub your bar of soap into the included foaming net to produce that fluffy, whipped, cloud-like soufflé experience. Not only is the product a little luxury moment you can enjoy every day, a single bar lasts a long time and is essentially zero waste. This product is just all around gorgeously done and it’s the little spa-like experience at home we could all appreciate right now.

Face oil is something that’s always a part of my skin care routine. Even as someone with oily combination skin! Why? Because hydrated skin is healthy skin. Sometimes I use it as a standalone moisturizer, or layered with lotion or cream based moisturizer, always in layers from lightest to heaviest textures. But most of the time, I’m reaching for a one and done face oil for the sake of simplicity. Déesse De La Forêt Revitalizing Facial Oil by Cuerpa is a stunning powerhouse facial oil suitable for all skin types, with a really unique mix of naturally derived ingredients rich in omega fatty acids 3, 6, and 9. First, borage oil is the top ingredient which helps reduce inflammation and improve hydration. Olive derived squalane is also in the formula, one of my favorite balancing skin care ingredients, because it actually mimics your skin’s natural oils. Another ingredient, cacay oil aids skin renewal with a natural source of retinol. Additionally, kakadu plum is a natural source of vitamin C, helping prevent free radical damage and boosting your glow in the process. Finally, the formula contains jasmine as a finishing element, aimed to soothe and nourish. This facial oil truly has it all, which makes me think of it as a multivitamin for the skin. If you’re not sure where to start, start here. Just apply 3-10 drops over cleansed, toned skin, covering your entire face and neck. The brand also carries a few other facial oils, if you’re looking for something more targeted around anti-aging concerns or acne prone skin. Plus, enjoy free shopping and a free lip balm with every order!

How often do you mask? Masking is one of my favorite skin care steps. It can make such a huge difference in a short amount of time. I think everyone can carve out 10 minutes for some self care! Gleamin is a new-to-me-brand giving the glow in a major way. While suitable for all skin types, the Vitamin C Clay Mask by Gleamin is specifically designed for people of color, formulated with deep melanin skin in mind. The mask helps fade dark spots and revives skin tone with the help of aloe and turmeric. Yellow clay detoxifies clogged pores to improve overall glow. Vitamin C is the powerhouse ingredient that helps even skin tone and prevent future blemishes, and this product has three sources of it: desert lime, kakadu plum, and finger lime caviar. For the ultimate masking experience, this mask comes in the Glow and Go Duo with an application brush. Finally, the product is 100% vegan and made from ethically sourced ingredients. So go ahead, get your glow on!

It’s 2018, and if you haven’t yet tried a cleansing device you are seriously missing out. These bad boys remove makeup, pollution, and oil like none other, giving you a deep down clean you’d be unable to achieve with your bare hands alone. The Luce180° Facial Cleansing and Anti-Aging Device is something that can take your skincare routine to the next level. This device is made from bacteria-resistant medical grade silicone, and it has over 1500 little silicone bristles that gently pulsate while you cleanse. How many pulses, you ask? Up to 6500 beats per minute, to be exact! The 100% waterproof tool vibrates and cleanses deep down into pores, all while promoting lymphatic drainage and stimulating collagen and elastic production, as the pulsating motions are quite like a facial massage. It’s even hypoallergenic, making it a suitable option for all skin types including those with sensitive skin. The best part about the tool is that there are no replaceable parts, so there are no hidden costs to using the device over time. Not to mention, a single charge can last up to 300 uses. It also has a 5 year quality guarantee! Once you start cleansing your skin more thoroughly, you’ll start to see your other skincare products become more effective. Deep cleansing regularly seriously makes such a huge difference, so I recommend cleansing devices to every one I know.

The older I get, the less patience I have for skincare with mediocre ingredients and minimal results. I make a concerted effort to drink lots of water, eat a mostly clean diet, and work out regularly, so why should my skincare fall short of all the amazing work I’m doing? I, like a lot of people, want to do all I can to live long and look great! I recently discovered Age Stop Switzerland, a skincare brand that shares this same philosophy. Their products are high quality and luxurious, but also yield anti-aging effects with their scientifically proven ingredients. They use Swiss Snow Algae Powder and Plant Stem Cell Technology for a truly innovative approach to youth longevity via anti-aging products. This specific snow algae grows in the high mountain plains of Switzerland, and it’s extremely resilient to living in the harsh winter conditions. On a cellular level, the same molecules that protect the algae were discovered to also help protect the youthfulness of human skin. The products have a high concentration of active ingredients, and they are meant to deliver immediate results. Age Stop Switzerland products range from sleep masks to concentrates, with a large selection of skincare kits available designed to give you the full anti-aging experience. And no need to overhaul your entire routine in the process; Age Stop Switzerland products work wonderfully alongside the skincare you already have in your routine. Even if your skin is oily or dry, this line is suitable for you. The products are also free of parabens, mineral oil, fragrance, and artificial colors.

While there’s no magic age to start looking for age defying products, you can always start to seek products with higher quality ingredients. Mother earth is already the source of so many. I recently learned about a natural skincare brand called Lumavera, where the first ingredient in all of their products is aloe. This particular moisturizer is based on stem cell technology derived from the Moroccan Argan Tree, which should already sound like a familiar ingredient to any beauty junkie. It’s also is comprised of a blend of superfood oils, nutrients, and extracts. Hydration is the key to youthful, glowy skin, so this ultra firming moisturizer is made to hydrate, plump, and extend cell life to promote a luminous complexion. Suitable for normal to dry skin, it’s packed with hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, plant stem cells, peptides, and tons of other naturally derived powerhouse ingredients as well. This is the type of moisturizer my now dry skin craves, and if there’s one new product to pamper your skin with, let it be this. A moisturizer is something you use both morning and night, so it’s a worthy splurge for high quality ingredients and a results-driven brand. Seriously, the entire line looks amazing!
