9 Best Skin Care Products

This entry is part 14 of 16 in the series: Beauty Bests

“Beauty, to me is about being comfortable in your own skin.” – Gwyneth Paltrow

Recently, I had a conversation with one of my girlfriends, she like me, has hit the point of no return. Meaning- our face. We both feel as if we have been dragged behind a 16 wheeler, face first. She begged me to source the best products to rejuvenate skin.

We are women “of a certain” age, so finding products that work is like finding a needle in a haystack.

Guess what? I did it. I found them.

These products have not only rejuvenated my lackluster visage; they have made my brown spots a distant memory. These products, well, they have made me feel young again.

EYES:

KOS EYE + TAMANU ($55): is a highly concentrated, organic, nourishing treatment for the sensitive skin around eyes. Containing Sc Glucan, which provides natural UV protection, and fights DNZ damage and oxidative stress. This divine eye treatment worked wonders on me. Crows feet be gone!

KAT RUDU Cooling Cucumber Eye Bright Gel ($48)l: Cucumber, silk protein amino acids and algae extract, join forces and kick free radicals to the curb. My Louis Vuitton under eye puff pouches disappeared virtually overnight. Incredible.

EXFOLIATE:

MANUKA SECRETS Skin Regeneration ($29):  Sloughing away dull, flaking skin – never smelled so good. Powerful and soothing, the main ingredient is UMF 18+ Manuka Honey. So gentle, my face did not feel like I sandpapered it. Did I mention the fragrance? Divine.

KOS ORGANIC Facial Scrub ($39): Lightly scented, mmm coconut? This gentle organic exfoliant/cleanser can be used daily. By continually removing dead and damaged skin, new cells are regenerated. Besides, who wants to sport days old microdeposits of old makeup and debris? Not moi.

SERUM:

KAT RUDU Liquid Lift Silk Amino Acid Peptides ($72): Hollywood’s A-List Actresses claim that this brilliant product is their smoking gun. For what it’s worth, I agree. Ultra light and regenerative, not only did this serum instantly tighten my skin, it also (miraculously) faded my boring, brown spots. Finally, a product that works! Lightly scented, you will end up smelling like a rose and looking like a million bucks.

MANUKA SECRETS Deep Nourishment Manuka Honey UMF 18+ ($59.99):  Brightening and evening skin tone, on aging faces, is no small feat. This heavenly product delivers. Active botanicals, vitamins, and minerals, your skin benefits from the rich antioxidant and anti-aging ingredients. Long lasting moisture. You catch more bees with honey, you look younger with honey too!

MOISTURIZE  DAY:

KOS ORGANIC Face+Tamanu ($70): This day cream is truly one of a kind. Initially, I was taken aback by the color (light green) and texture (looked like a balm). As soon as I dipped the tip of my finger in the jar, I fell in love. Whipped, creamy and loaded with antineuralgic, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antibiotic, and antioxidant properties, your skin will instantly absorb this day cream. I practically saw my skin’s texture improve before my eyes. Supremely unique, give it a try, you can thank me later.

KAT RUDU Hydra-Cell Bright Citrus Moisturizer ($58): Oh how I love this product! Lemon balm works its anti-inflammatory magic, swiftly penetrating the skin, protecting against UV damage at the same time. Tone, heal, brighten, oxygenate! I did, I am NEVER turning back.

MASK:

MANUKA SECRETS Intensive Replenishment  Manuka Honey UMF 18+ ($29): That’s it, I am devoted to this mask, until death do us part. Creamy and rich, this product replenishes face, neck and decollete. It smells so good, that I wanted to eat it. My skin has NEVER felt so soft. I humbly bow before the creator of this marvelous delight. You will too. Promise.

I could go on for days about the quality of these glorious products. I love the fact that organic and unique ingredients found in nature make them stand out from the rest of the bunch at the beauty counter. Most of all I love that these marvelous brands have been created by women.

Who doesn’t want to smell like a rose dipped in honey and then dusted with coconut? Who doesn’t want to have beautiful, soft supple skin? Who doesn’t want to halt the clock and ease the ravages of life that leave their mark front and center, right there on our face?

You are welcome.
