Now that DermStore’s family has grown into 2 more categories (blush.com and hairenvy.com) and one of the best days of the year is upon us, (no silly not Valentine’s day but Treat. Yo. Self. day – see below for an explanation) I thought I’d share my favorite beauty picks. Whether you’re treating yourself or someone you love, these top 3 new items will bring joy.
First up, Paul & Joe Beaute! When I first entered the beauty industry as a freelance makeup artist, I worked for Paul & Joe, since that moment I’ve been a huge fan and my admiration for the brand is off the charts. But how could it not? Their seasonal collections are inspired by the brand’s fashion line and the quality of their products have the same high standards to boot. So when this cute combo of lipstick case and refill lipstick came across my desk for an upcoming photo shoot, I quickly realized that I’d be sharing these two with the lovely ladies in my life.
Next, I have to confess, I’m not one for using eye creams but as I approach my next birthday I’m seeing why this was a serious mistake. So this year I’ve signed up for two to help me battle the puffiness and dark circles that have come this winter. Thanks to Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Ferulic and Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum, I’m winning the battle. It has retinol which helps to tame fine lines and smooth the skin and so far I have noticed it’s doing a good job of that. The delicate skin under my eyes is getting brighter, less puffiness and the tone has improved. Hopefully this means, disaster has been diverted.
In previous posts I’ve mention my boyfriend has longer hair than me and he rarely brushes it (don’t tell him that because he’ll deny it) so I’m constantly trying to find that perfect hair product to help tame his dreads. This month I gave him Sachajuan’s Over Night Hair Repair. This mask is lightweight but the results are ultra moisturizing due to it’s vitamin-rich algae extracts, allowing Sam’s hair to make it through for an extra month.
So for those of you that are not aware of Treat Yo Self day, please enjoy this message from Parks and Recreation. With time flying by so quickly, it’s a good reminder that you need to spoil yourself because you deserve it.
