Beauty Find- Flora + Bast Age Adapting CBD Serum

Flora + Bast Age Adapting CBD Serum

You've probably been hearing more and more about the benefits of CBD oil in beauty products this year, and I've had the benefit of trying several of them.  One of the new standouts is Flora + Bast Age Adapting CBD Serum   Flora + Bast Age Adapting CBD Serum is an oil-ONLY serum containing over 300mg of organic CBD that works to reduce redness, clear blemishes, and restore skin’s youthful appearance.


Flora + Bast is a new beauty and health and wellness company that prides themselves on starting with the best ingredients, processing them minimally, and preserving them naturally. Their formulas are food-grade and water-free, so there's no water, surfactants and preservatives that can irritate the skin.




Flora + Bast Age Adapting CBD Serum


Flora + Bast Age Adapting CBD Serum works with all skin types (including combination and oily) and contains CBD-rich Cannibis Oil, Full-Spectrum Cannabis Oil. 

This time of year (end of winter, beginning of spring), my skin can get dry and flaky, and I loved massaging Flora + Bast Age Adapting CBD Serum into my dry areas at night before bed and after cleansing and using an hydrating serum.  The scent is slightly herbal but mild and the oil was lightweight and smooth, absorbed into my skin within a few seconds and didn't leave an oily or greasy layer on my skin. 








After using Flora + Bast Age Adapting CBD Serum for a few weeks, my skin was soft and hydrated, no more flakes and a healthy glow in the mornings.  Flora + Bast Age Adapting CBD Serum is also perfect to use pre or post shave for men or women, and mixing in your lotion of face cream for an added hydration boost!  It's very concentrated so a little goes a long way, making this a good skincare investment.

If you're looking for a natural oil (or want to explore the new CBD oil trend) with a product that's hydrating but never greasy, Flora + Bast Age Adapting CBD Serum is the perfect product for you. - RLB

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist 
At this point it's pretty much guaranteed I'm going to fall in love with a Glow Recipe product packaging.  But in the case of the newest skincare product in the Watermelon lineGlow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist  it's not just pretty to look at (and yummy to smell).


Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist 

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist is a bi-phase mist made with  Watermelon extract, Hyaluroic acid and Hibiscus Flower AHA which deliver moisture, essential vitamins and amino acids, and smooths skin.  


Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist  is meant to be shaken.  Then it creates a cloudy appearance in the bottle, (hence it also referred to in Korean skincare lingo as a "Cloud Mist"), before spraying.  The shaking  blends the nourishing oil layer with the water based extracts.  It gives a beautiful glow to the skin and also serves to set makeup without disturbing it at all.

Beauty Find - IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Gel Lotion

IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Gel Lotion 

If you're looking for a gel moisturizer or a lighter lotion that still gives all the hydrating benefits of a heavier cream, IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Gel Lotion  is the perfect solution.


Many of you are familiar with IT Cosmetics now famous IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream.  What's so amazing about  IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Gel Lotion  is that I got all the hydrating benefits of Confidence in a Cream but with a lightweight, silky formula which also is the perfect makeup primer.  The newest addition to the IT Cosmetics Confidence skincare collection is made with Ceramides which help restore and repair skin, keeping skin moisturized and supple, Glycerin to help skin retain moisture, and Cactus Flower Extract which supports natural skin moisture. 


With my combination skin Confidence in a Gel Lotion gave me the perfect amount of moisture - yet felt like I didn't have anything on my skin.  The feel of the Gel Lotion on my skin was like silk and it spread on smoothly and melted into my skin instantly.  After applying my skin was smooth, plump with a nice, natural sheen, but not oily in any way.  

I used a layer of Confidence in a Gel Lotion in the morning after using a mist to gently refresh my skin. My makeup applied very smoothly over IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Gel Lotion and my drier areas, like my cheeks were smooth and plump all day long with no disturbance to my foundation or other makeup.  I found myself loving the daily application and my skin looked fresh and healthy and felt baby soft.

Confidence in a Gel Lotion is so hydrating that many of you may decide to use this instead of the heavier Confidence in a Cream on a daily basis, especially if you have more normal/combination skin types. By the way, if you have very dry skin or are in a very cold/dry environment, you can also use Confidence in a Gel Lotion layered over the IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream Transforming Moisturizing Super Cream  for added moisture and protection and the perfect canvas for makeup application.  Confidence in a Gel Lotion is yet another effective  IT Cosmetics skincare product that you can feel great about! - RLB
