Beauty Find - Glow Recipe Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream

Glow Recipe Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream 

As someone who is now obsessed with Glow Recipe skincare, I was very excited by the newest addition to their lineup, the Glow Recipe Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream

Moisture Cream 

This winter, treat your skin to a soothing, lightweight moisturizer enhanced with the slightly sweet scent of banana and a perfect souffle texture.  Glow Recipe Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream is formulated with real banana, magnesium, turmeric, and cica for soft, hydrated, even skin.

The texture and feel of Glow Recipe Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream was just a dream for me.  It's a hybrid of a whipped moisturizer and a lightweight gel moisturizer.   Glow Recipe Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream is soft and melted instantly into my skin without leaving it oily, greasy or sticky.  

The finish left my skin with a natural healthy glow and it paired well underneath my primers and other makeup.  I loved using this in the morning after a spritz of my Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist. 

With its banana scent, I liked it because in terms of banana-scented beauty products, it comes closest to the scent of a true banana (the inside and outer peel to me). The fragrance was not overly sweet or strong, so it evaporated within a few seconds, but it was very calming and pleasant to me.

As for the packaging, the soft yellow color is super cute and although it's in a jar and I have to use my fingers to scoop out the product (which is not my preference), I don't mind since Glow Recipe Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream is such a nice product to apply.

Beauty Find - MyClarins RE-FRESH Hydrating Beauty Mist

Before the new year, I saw Clarins had introduced a new line of skincare called MyClarins, and I recently decided to give it a try.  I started with one of my favorite skincare items - a facial mist.

MyClarins RE-FRESH Hydrating Beauty Mist has a organic coconut water base and a fresh, fruity and uplifting scent. Now I keep it on my desk at all times so I can always feel refreshed and hydrated, especially in a dry, office/apartment environment.

In addition to the coconut water, MyClarins RE-FRESH Hydrating Beauty Mist is also made 
Robinia Flower water, which softens skin, Alpenrose extract which expels flushes out toxins and pollutants, Fig extract which hydrates and Acerola seed extract, which is rich in Vitamin C, and boosts radiance.

I loved that even though it has a floral/fruity scent, it wasn't overbearing and evaporated quickly, leaving just a trace of scent for a few minutes.  

I used it after cleansing in the morning before applying my makeup, as well as a makeup setting spray in colder weather.  It performed well under and over makeup and kept my skin soft and plump.

During the late afternoon I loved spraying it for a pick me up with the scent acting as aromatherapy, and a quick moisturizer if I'd been in a cold/dry office area most of the day.

The spray is very fine and medium weight and the mist targeted my skin well, drying quickly with no sticky or tacky feeling.  Note: this is a glass bottle with some heft to it, so I will use this at home/office, but I'd love to see a smaller, lighter version for travel soon - perhaps in one of my favorite duty free stores! - RLB
