Drugstore Buy of the Week - Aveeno Absolutely Ageless Leave-on Day Mask Face Lotion with SPF 30


Aveeno Absolutely Ageless Leave-on Day Mask Face Lotion with SPF 30
Skincare is a category that has launched quite a few innovations this year, but I think this is a first for the drugstore line, Aveeno Absolutely Ageless  - the "Leave On Day Mask".


Aveeno Absolutely Ageless Leave-on Day Mask Face Lotion has a long name, but essentially its a modern way to moisturize skin.  It's a lightweight, and very hydrating lotion that gives anti-aging benefits, including SPF 30  It also contains Active Naturals Blackberry Complex, infused with vitamins and anti-aging ingredients.


I like using this as a prep for makeup.  Aveeno Absolutely Ageless Leave-on Day Mask Face Lotion  is very silky with lots of slip to it, to I didn't need more than two pumps to  cover my face and neck completely.  It has as light, quickly absorbing scent, and it plumped and softened my skin instantly, leaving a slight glossy sheen finish, but no residue.  Aveeno Absolutely Ageless Leave-on Day Mask Face Lotion with SPF 30, Anti-Aging Skin Care worked well under different types of makeup, including foundation/BB Cream.

The other way I used the Aveeno Absolutely Ageless Leave-on Day Mask Face Lotion with SPF 30, Anti-Aging Skin Care is actually like a mask on long flights.  I applied a thicker layer with just lip color and mascara.  During the flight, my skin remained soft and smooth, and I liked that I was actually "masking" without anyone knowing.   My skin looked fresh, healthy and hydrated when I landed.  I didn't rinse off the mask, and added some light tinted moisturizer or foundation and finished the rest of my makeup.


The 1.3fl.oz size is perfect for travel and the pump applicator made this very easy to use and not worry about getting my fingers dirty or contaminating the contents.  Aveeno Absolutely Ageless Leave-on Day Mask Face Lotion is a great way to pamper your skin, get multiple benefits and not break the bank.  - RLB

Beauty Find - Marc Jacobs Beauty Finish-Line Perfecting Coconut Setting Powder


Marc Jacobs Beauty Finish-Line Perfecting Coconut Setting Powder Invisible 

It's been a while since I've been interested in trying a new Setting Powder, but Marc Jacobs Beauty Finish-Line Perfecting Coconut Setting Powder got me with it's cute packaging and yes, "Coconut" in the name.



Marc Jacobs Beauty Finish-Line Perfecting Coconut Setting Powder is a lightweight, completely translucent setting powder that gives skin a velvety matte finish and also has some blurring effects.  It contains five forms of coconut and cocoa butter, which melt understandably for a healthy and hydrated look—not dry or chalky.  The powder actually felt like a lightweight cream going on, and immediately absorbed into my skin.



For someone like me with combination skin, this was extremely welcome.  My skin looked matte, but still healthy with no dry feel or appearance.  I also liked how easy it was to control the amount of powder with the mesh top so I never spilled it or applied too much to my powder brush.

Most importantly Marc Jacobs Beauty Finish-Line Perfecting Coconut Setting Powder Invisible  kept my skin fresh and hydrated looking and my makeup in tact and fresh for the entire day.  As for as oily breakthrough, I did need to touch up my forehead and nose, but that was not until late afternoon after an early morning application.  

After falling in love with the Marc Jacobs Beauty Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter 50 Dew You I was impressed with the Coconut infused product idea, and now that I've tried Marc Jacobs Beauty Finish-Line Perfecting Coconut Setting Powder Invisible I'm a lifelong fan. - RLB

Organic Beauty Find - COOLA Full Spectrum 360- Sun Silk Drops SPF 30

COOLA Full Spectrum 360- Sun Silk Drops SPF 30 
I love many of the new sun/digital exposure protection products brands are introducing this year, and COOLA Full Spectrum 360- Sun Silk Drops SPF 30  is now a go-to skincare product for me.


COOLA Full Spectrum 360- Sun Silk Drops SPF 30  is an easy way to get your daily full spectrum  protection from the sun, as well as environmental toxins, and digital overexposure. The advanced organic formula protects against broad spectrum UVA/UVB, IR (infrared), and HEV (high energy visible) rays A fast-absorbing complex blend of plant stem cells and patented LightWaves Defense technology helps to prevent visible signs of aging from both indoor and outdoor factors.   



This means that with a daily application of COOLA Full Spectrum 360- Sun Silk Drops SPF 30  you will be covered from home to the car to the office to the beach - and beyond. 


With my frequent  use of electronic devices, tables, computers and smart phones, the fact that I can get HEV daily protection is a major plus for me.  According to COOLA, HEV rays penetrate more deeply into layers of skin than the sun's UV rays, which can accelerate aging. 



COOLA Full Spectrum 360- Sun Silk Drops SPF 30 is made with all organic ingredients, including: Aloe Leaf Juice, Chamomile Flower Extract,  Safflower Seed Oil, and Bitter Orange Flower Extract. 

The COOLA Full Spectrum 360- Sun Silk Drops SPF 30 are lightweight (like water!), yet extremely hydrating.  My skin felt plump and smooth like silk and applying them.  It absorbed into my skin quickly and worked well under my makeup, making it a great multi-use primer.


COOLA Full Spectrum 360- Sun Silk Drops SPF 30  also smelled wonderful - a light orange blend - citrus scent, and I only needed about 3 drops for full coverage on my face. Another great feature is the COOLA Full Spectrum 360- Sun Silk Drops SPF 30  can be mixed into your favorite primer or foundation.  I got great results both ways.  It's only 1 oz, which makes it perfect for travel, and concentrated, so it will last you a few months, even with daily use.

COOLA Full Spectrum 360- Sun Silk Drops SPF 30  is the future of skincare. -RLB
