This week the Lipstick League is digging into your beauty love life: what three skincare products do you adore right now?
I have to confess a fairly newly discovered huge love for Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant ($29 CAD at thebay.com and $22 USD at ulta.com). Usually it comes in a tube; I'm obsessed with a tub version that was probably a limited edition... and when I use it up, I'll replace it with a tube.
I love, love, love Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant mostly as lip balm – it feels comfortably emollient on lips for ages and ages. I quite like it as a skin balm too, on damp hands and arms. It doesn't sink in as fast as lotions, but I love how soft and plump it makes my skin feel. And in a pinch: it's a dewy-looking luminizer on along cheekbones and so forth.
I'm also in love with the Rodan + Fields Active Hydration Serum ($124 CAD at rodanandfields.com/ca and $108 USD at rodanandfields.com), a glycerin-loaded formula that doesn't feel as heavy and sticky as it should, given the amount of glycerin in it. I'll explain more in another post, promise.
And I've a big beauty crush on the new Neostrata Hydrating & Plumping Sheet Mask ($8.50 at Canadian drugstores) – hello, 15% hyaluronic acid.
