I love the Avene line more with each product I try. I was sent a variety of sunscreens for summer, and my favorite by far has been the High Protection Tinted Compact SPF 50.
It’s no secret that big companies more often than not try to cut costs with no regard to the effects on the planet or even the consumer as long as it helps their bottom lines. That’s exactly why a few years ago a number of them started using plastic exfoliating beads in their facial and body scrubs – versus natural products like coffee grounds or nuts.
Time and time again we’re told to treat the delicate skin around our eyes in a gentle manner. Unfortunately sometimes when you’re half asleep applying your eye cream at 6AM with no time to spare can be easier said than done, which is why I love eye products that don’t require actually touching your eye area.
I’ve spent my entire life chasing the perfect tan. Growing up in a typical Chinese household, I was told to never get dark. White skin is a sign of beauty…yada yada yada.
Hands down my favorite drugstore brand is Yes to Carrots especially now that drugstore brands seem to be either super cheap and chemically filled or fairly pricey (at least in NYC where more and more drugstores are carrying higher end brands). Yes to Carrots stays true to their natural philosophy and continues to deliver superfood-inspired skincare products.
My British friends rave about Charlotte Tilbury and her Magic Cream, but of course it’s not available in the US yet (c’mon, FDA!). By the time it makes its stateside debut, the formula will be watered down or completely different, so I’ve been begging my friends across the pond to ship it to me!
