Jan 20th, 2009 by Airdrie
This week Airdrie reviews:
This high-performance facial delivers all the radiance and smoothness of microdermabrasion-with significantly less irritation and stress to skin. Promotes surface cell turnover on multiple levels to instantly unveil skin that’s fresher, more vibrant. Oil free. Use 2-3 times a week for an instant brightness boost.
2. Two products from NUXE
3. We both have recently tried Aveda’s new Enbrightenment Face Care line (available February 14, 2009).
Listen to the show for a full review of this multi-step face-care line from Aveda.
Kerry Anne reviews:
Maybelline The Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara
This mascara is very good for a drugstore product. No clumps, and while I’m not sure my lashes are, in fact, 9x as voluminized, as Maybelline claims, they do look pretty great, without a hint of Tammy Faye tackiness.
One of our listeners, Valerie, turned us onto to this Seattle company, which makes handmade, alcohol-free perfumes. According to the website:
Unlike mass-produced, commercial perfumes, Sweet Anthem creates perfume oils using 80-85% concentration rates and dilutes most of the perfumes in jojoba, evening primrose, or pomegranate oil. This formulation creates a silky texture, a long-lasting fragrance, and a skin-safe perfume experience.
All of the perfume blends are named after women the company’s founder, Meredith, admires. KA is partial to Vicky, a blend of Almond, Cinnamon and Sweet Orange, and Anita, a blend of Coffee, Moroccan Mint, Peppermint, Pink sugar, Turkish mocha, and Vanilla.
