Beauty Find - ALGENIST GENIUS Liquid Collagen

Algenist GENIUS Liquid Collagen 

I've been curious about Algenist GENIUS Liquid Collagen  for a few months now, and I recently started to add it to my skincare routine, with great results.

Algenist GENIUS Liquid Collagen  is a vegan formulation design to help replenish and preserve a healthy, youthful skin with collagen to the skin.  The anti-aging formula contains 13,000 microalgae oil beads naturally sourced and sustainably produced, omegas 3, 6, and 9, and a natural source of vitamin E. 

I used Algenist GENIUS Liquid Collagen  daily after cleansing and toning, in place of my usual serum.  I fell in love with the results immediately.  I used just a few drops and loved how silky and lightweight it felt on my skin.  It absorbed instantly and left my skin with a beautiful glow, but no excess oil or greasy feel.

Over the next few days I could see the improvement in my overall skin tone, and I didn't experience any clogged pores or breakouts.  I found that when I applied Algenist GENIUS Liquid Collagen  in the evening, my skin continued to be soft and radiant with perfect balance when I woke in the morning.

Algenist GENIUS Liquid Collagen is a skincare booster that is well worth the money.  If you're looking to treat yourself to a product that will make a real difference in the texture, tone and radiance of your skin,  Algenist GENIUS Liquid Collagen  is what you need in your life. - RLB

Beauty Find - Saborino Morning Face Mask

 Saborino Morning Lightening Face Mask, Minty Grapefruit (32 Sheets)
There's nothing I love more than an innovative way to save time with my beauty routine in the morning, and this Japanese Saborino Morning Face Mask is just what I needed.

Saborino Morning Face Mask is a unique 3-in-1 face mask designed to take the place of cleansing, toning and moisturizing in the morning.  The mask also works in just 60 seconds, and preps skin for immediate makeup application. What more can you ask for?

The Saborino Morning Face Mask pack contains 32 thin cotton sheet masks which are soft and stretchable, so they will fit a wide variety of face shapes.  All I needed to do is place a face mask on first thing in the morning, get my coffee brewed and relax for a bit, and then it was time to take it off!  I loved the fresh minty scent and slight tingling effect (from the citrus, which may be irritating if you have very sensitive skin.  If that's the case, no worries, there are three more versions of the Saborino Morning Face Mask, which I mention below).

Each Saborino Morning Face Mask holds a good amount of serum, and are damp, but they are not dripping wet, which I liked.  When I removed the mask, as directed, I patted my skin with the folded sheet mask to allow the rest of the serum absorb into my skin.

After another minute, my skin was dry, and ready to either apply makeup, or for any additional skincare I might need, like sunscreen.  

After removing the Saborino Morning Face Mask, my skin was slightly dewy, plump and felt as fresh and toned as if I had washed it with water and used a liquid toner.   My skin felt balanced - not too tight and not oily, so this Minty Grapefruit (shown, above). version was good for my combination skin.

Using the Saborino Morning Face Mask in the mornings saved me several minutes in the morning, for sure, and I liked how nicely it prepped my skin for makeup. Note:  If you have very oily skin, or are in a warm weather area, you may want to do a light cleanse upon waking before using.

Now that I've gotten in the routine of using Saborino Morning Face Mask in the mornings, I'm becoming a huge fan of this concept, and plan on trying some of the other versions: their original Fruit and Herb, in the yellow package,  Kiwi Yogurt Brightening in the white package, and Mix Berry Moisturizing in the pink package. Give these a try - you'll thank me later! - RLB 

Drugstore Buy of the Week - NYX #THISISEVERYTHING Lip OIl

NYX #THISISEVERYTHING Lip OIl gives shine like a gloss, but with a lightweight,  hydrating tinted oil that turns the driest, most chapped lips into smooth, soft kissable pillows instantly.

With a name like #THISISEVERYTHING Lip OIl (and the number of times it's been sold out in stores and online) I expected it to deliver real results, and happily, it did.

I used NYX #THISISEVERYTHING Lip OIl on a daily basis, in one of three ways: as a hydrating lip treatment before my lip stains, matte liquid lip colors or lipsticks, after exfoliating my lips or as a hydrating lip gloss over lip color or on bare lips. The magic of  NYX #THISISEVERYTHING Lip OIl is that it's made with a combination of hydrating and pampering oils like jojoba, avocado, and sweet almond.

The #THISISEVERYTHING Lip OIl is mostly clear, with a faint touch of soft pink which looks very natural and enhances the look of  lips.  It also has a yummy, slightly sweet scent that was always nice to smell when I used it.

If you're worried that an oil will be too shiny or greasy, #THISISEVERYTHING Lip OIl has that solved.  It's a silky lightweight oil with a slight gel feel, and it melted right into my lips with no greasy, sticky or oily residue.

Whether wearing #THISISEVERYTHING Lip OIl under or over my lip color, or it's own at home or on the weekends, my lips stayed soft and smooth all day no matter how cold it was, and it worked nicely with every type of lip color product I used.

#THISISEVERYTHING Lip OIl was perfect to use anytime of day, and the cute pink packaging with a kiss print also makes this a great "Galentine" gift for your beauty loving friends or relatives, or little Valentine's beauty treat for yourself.

NYX #THISISEVERYTHING Lip OIl is also only $6!  So stock up before it's sold out again. - RLB
