Bright and balanced: Three skincare products you need to try now

I love trying out new skincare products, especially if it’s from brands that I use and love already.

I don’t know about you, but I can definitely start to feel that spring is around the corner. A little more sunlight, a few birds singing here and there, and more mild weather is all I need to help lift my spirits.  With that comes a change in my skincare routine.  For the most part I’m still using the same products, however, I’m rotating in more items to change it up and keep my skin looking bright and balanced.

I recently got in a few new items, all from brands I know and love, and if you are looking for some new things to try out then I think you’ll love what I chat about in today’s post.

Fenty Skin Pre-Show Glow

Fenty Skin Pre-Show Glow

I absolutely adore Fenty Beauty but I’ve never actually tried out anything from her skincare line, until now.

I recently got in the Fenty Skin Pre-Show Glow Instant Retexturing 10% AHA Treatment + Reusable Applicator (C$52), which is an exfoliating treatment that you use a couple times a week.

This product comes with the solution as well as a exfoliating towel, which is the applicator that you wrap around your hand so you can apply the product to the face.  The treatment includes 10 per cent AHAs, which help to fade the look of pores and dark spots and improve skin’s moisture content.  It contains a mix of glycolic, citric, and lactic acids to get deep into pores and leave you with bright and glowing skin.

The formula also includes rooibos, which are rich in AHAs and zinc, and helps to revitalize and renew the appearance of skin; as well as pomegranate, papaya, and cranberry enzymes to visibly digest, lift, and loosen damaged surface cells.

Ideal for any skin type, this product helps with dark spots, dullness, and uneven texture. It’s also cruelty free and vegan.

I really like this product and it’s unlike anything I have in my collection.  I like to use it one to to times a week to help brighten up my skin.  You just pour the solution on the towel it comes with and then work it into your skin for about a minute, then rinse.

Tula Bright Start Brightening Vitamin C Moisturizer

Tula Bright Start Brightening Vitamin C Moisturizer

I absolutely adore Tula’s moisturizers, so whenever they release a new one I’m always so excited to try it out.

Brand new is the Bright Start Brightening Vitamin C Moisturizer ($54 USD).  This moisturizer contains Vitamin C, mandarin orange, and transexamic acid to brighten the skin and improve the appearance of dull skin and dark marks.

The formula is a gel cream texture and comes in a pump bottle, making this nice and clean to apply.  In addition to the ingredients mentioned above, it also includes the brand’s S6Pro Complexing, which is a blend of six probiotics and prebiotic extracts to help improve skin’s smoothness and maintain skin balance.  It also has Japanese mandarin, yuzu, and hyaluronic acid to hydrate and improve the look of uneven skin tone and texture, as well as wild butterfly ginger for antioxidant protection.

Tula also sells this moisturizer as a set ($82 USD, valued at $102) with their Brightening Treatment Drops Triple Vitamin C Serum. The Brightening Treatment Drops target and help reduce the appearance of dark spots, while boosting skin’s overall radiance. Apply the drops first and then go in with the moisturizer for bright and hydrated skin.

Mary Kay Clinical Solutions Boosters

Mary Kay Clinical Solutions Boosters

If you are looking for an extra boost in your skincare routine, then take a look at Mary Kay’s new Clinical Solutions Boosters.

These boosters are comprised of a highly potent dose of scientifically acclaimed skincare ingredients and the formulas are specially designed to complement your current skin routine.

First up is the C+ Resveratrol Line Reducer, which helps with wrinkle reduction. You apply these products after your toner and before your serum and moisturizer.  This particular one contains the brand’s highest concentrations of vitamin c and resveratrol, which is a highly potent antioxidant that is known to fight visible signs of skin aging and protect the skin’s surface.

This is great if your skincare routine is focused on anti-aging since it contains targeted ingredients to help fight sign’s of aging.  In addition to Vitamin C and resveratrol, it also has acetyl hexapeptide-8, which is a special peptide designed to help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. 

If you need some extra moisture in your skin, take a look at the Clinical Solutions HA+ Ceramide Hydrator, which supports skin’s barrier and hydrates.

This booster contains two forms of hyaluronic acid to combat dry skin, as well as ceramide to improve skin hydration and supports normal barrier function. It also has verbena officinalis extract which also improves skin hydration, as well as its barrier function, helping to protect skin from environmental stressors and water loss.

These boosters retail for C$42 each and are a great addition to add to your skincare routine.

I’m really excited to keep incorporating these items into my daily skincare lineup.  Like I said, I love rotating products in and out and all of these make for great bonuses to add into my routine.
