Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

I absolutely love my FOREO LUNA 2 (Reviewed HERE), and have to say that I have never loved a cleansing device more than this, but mine is too big to take with me when I want to travel very light– that is until now! The FOREO LUNA Play is about the size of a macaron, and it nestles into the balm of your hand effortlessly. It is non-chargeable, but the charge lasts for a minimum of 100 uses, and it proves to be a very economical way for newcomers to the world of FOREO to test the LUNA before committing to the full size device, but it is also a fantastic way for people who love their FOREO LUNA to travel with a tiny version of this ingenious beauty tool. This is also the perfect size to put in your gym bag! Furthermore, the high quality plastic case is the perfect way to keep the LUNA Play clean and protected in your travel bag.
FOREO Luna Play is available in Aquamarine, Yellow and Purple at Space NK, and all three are precisely the same design.
According to FOREO,

Though small in size, the LUNA play facial-cleansing brush is big on innovation. Packing the entire LUNA experience into a macaroon-sized device, the LUNA play is a fun and affordable intro to the amazing skincare benefits that come from T-Sonic cleansing.

Luna Play is a non-rechargeable pocket-sized facial-cleansing device. It removes 99.5% of dirt and impurities and is more hygienic than the bristled facial-cleansing brushes, leaving your complexion visibly smooth, radiant, and naturally beautiful while unclogging pores of gross gunk and grime, like dirt, oil and makeup residue.

With a 2-zone cleansing brush, the Luna Play allows users of every skin type to discover fresh, clear and even-looking complexion in 6 weeks with just 1 minute twice a day. The thinner touch-points gently cleanse sensitive and normal skin while thicker touch-points are great for precision cleansing.
Every LUNA play face brush provides up to 100 full cleansing routines and is non rechargeable.
Key Benefits:
• Unique silicone design with even softer touch-points which are extremely gentle on the skin.
• Hypoallergenic, free of phthalates and BPA. Silicone is nonporous to resist bacteria buildup.
• T-Sonic™ power, with 8,000 transdermal sonic pulsations per minute.
• Travel-friendly: Lightweight and easy to carry as it is the same size as a cotton pad.

SURRATT Beauty Artistique Blush in Aureole: The Perfect Golden Highlighter | Review and Swatches

Purchased by me (Affiliate Links)

Surratt, an extraordinary line that burst onto the scene when Troy launched his line at Barneys New York in 2013, was quickly recognized as one of the most innovative luxury brands to have hit the marketplace in years. A favorite among makeup artists, beauty bloggers, and the beauty-obsessed alike, this line boasts the most remarkable finely milled textures, rich color saturation, and overall exemplary quality. Troy, who is among the most celebrated and coveted celebrity makeup artists, is a true visionary whose beautifully edited makeup line was the result of many years of intensive research, and inspired by his deep and abiding love of high quality Japanese beauty products. In fact, his painstakingly crafted line is made in Japan with the most exacting standards. No cost was spared in his use of the finest ingredients coupled with the most innovative technologies, and the end result is a line of consistently superior quality.
Furthermore, as I have previously stated in other posts, anyone who has ever tried any of his powder-based products will attest, their smooth creamy textures are utterly peerless. As Troy explained to me, his powder products are made using the Japanese slurry-technology whereby they begin their life as a liquid that is poured and then evaporates leaving behind the most creamy and easy to blend powder. The textures of these products are utterly sublime, and the tactile experience is so superbly satisfying that one is naturally inclined to reach for these products with great regularity. Troy's products boast a modernist design with eco-friendly minimalist packaging, and his eyeshadow and blush pans can be placed in one of the chic Surratt Palettes for added convenience.
According to Surratt,

Founder Troy Surratt believes that 'All good design eliminates excess waste and is responsible.' With minimal and recyclable materials, his Artistique Blushes reflect that philosophy.

Flushed cheeks with an aura of vitality. Naturally glowing finish. Shades range from demure to provocative.

Blushes are held in a custom-tooled case, with no aluminum separating the makeup from its holder. When your shade is finished, the plastic container can be recycled. Build your own palette by mixing blushes and eyeshadows. Simply click and lock shades in place. A delicate adhesive will keep your individual shades from moving. Shades are easily replaceable.
Surratt Artistique Blush in Aureole is a staggeringly beautiful, and infinitely subtle and refined golden highlighter. The texture is soft, smooth, creamy and glides across the skin effortlessly, evenly and blends out seamlessly. While it is a powder it feels like a cream to the touch as a result of the slurry technology employed in its making. It is this very textural difference that makes the formula unique and indescribably luxurious to the touch. The finish is best described as a natural and luminous glow from within– particularly so when applied with a light hand. 
According to Surratt,

Surratt Beauty's 'Artistique Blush' is a lightweight powder that gives your complexion a flawless, natural-looking finish. Designed to accentuate your features, 'Auréole' is a highlighter that makes your skin look more radiant and your bone structure more defined. Use it below the arch of your brow, down the bridge of your nose or across the highest part of your cheeks.

Created using the Japanese ‘slurry’ method, which allows for an ultra-blendable ‘artistic’ application, Surratt’s Artistique Highlighter in shade ‘Aureole’ lends ‘high points’ a beautiful, soft focus glow. Just use the Highlight Brush to sweep pigment on top of cheekbones, brow bones and the cupid’s bow to draw attention to your favourite features and achieve a more ‘3D’ effect.
 Soft focus to demonstrate the gorgeous golden luminosity.
Ingredients: Talc, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Dimethicone, Diisostearyl Malate, Boron Nitride, Trimethylolpropane Triethylhexanoate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Petrolatum, Sorbitan Sesquiisostearate, Aluminum Distearate, Ethylparaben, Methylparaben, Tocopherol (+/-) Mica (CI 77019), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Red 30 (CI 73360), Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140), Red 28 Lake (CI 45410), Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), Ultramarines (CI 77007), Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide (CI 77510), Silica, Aluminum Hydroxide, Blue 1 Lake (CI 42090).

    Covet-Worthy Molton Brown Eau de Toilettes and Body Washes

    Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

    I absolutely love Molton Brown, and their lotions, creams and body washes rank among my very favorite aromatic body products in which to luxuriate. This luxe, iconic English line is well known for their lovely fragrance blends, fantastic textures, and chic packaging. I recently added some of their magnificent eau de toilettes and body washes to my collection that I love so much that I had to share.
    Molton Brown Ylang-Ylang Eau de Toilette ($65.00 from Molton BrownSaks Fifth AvenueJohn Lewis £39.00 and Spring): Described as, "Rich. Peaceful. Harmonious," this warm fragrance is a warm musky floral with a refined Ylang-Ylang at its core. It sits close to the skin and as it dries down a warm vanilla base note emerges that commingles with receding cedar wood and musk. While their is an unmistakable richness to this lovely scent, it is counteracted by the lighter eau de toilette formula.

    According to Molton Brown,

    A relaxing, indulgent eau de toilette blended with notes of ylang-ylang, cardamom and vanilla. Secrets from the rainforest. Sun-warmed woods. Dozing heads beneath the canopy. Press the pause button and get ready to unwind.

    Molton Brown Dewy Lily of the Valley & Star Anise Eau de Toilette ($65.00 from Molton BrownJohn Lewis £39.00 and Barneys New York): Described as, "Enduring. Exquisite. Pure," this delicate, and beautifully feminine, floral is a stunning amalgam of Lily of the Valley, Magnolia and Peony offset by the rich aroma of Ylang-Ylang and Sandalwood. The juxtaposition of the fresh florals and rich woodsy aromas create a lovely depth that is intoxicatingly beautiful and infinitely wearable.

    According to Molton Brown,

    The delicate notes of Lily of the Valley, Magnolia and Peony are in perfect balance with the notes of invigorating green mandarin and sweet star anise, evoking the ethereal scents of spring.

    This timeless eau de toilette captivates the fine aromas of a blossoming meadow in the spring. The perfect surprise for those who love a floral fragrance.

    Nodding sprigs of angelic white bells. Delicate lace and flowing silk. The first dance of dainty blossoms. Veil your senses in ethereal tenderness.

    Top notes: Star Anise, Magnolia and Green Mandarin.
    Heart notes: Lily Of The Valley, Peony and White Tea.
    Base notes: Ylang-Ylang, Sandalwood and White Musk.
    Molton Brown Heavenly Gingerlily Eau de Toilette ($65.00 from Molton Brown and John Lewis £39.00): Described as, "Exotic. Alluring. Escapist," this warm and rich spicy floral is an intoxicating scent punctuated by Tuberose, Lily and Jasmine commingled with spicy top notes of Cardamom, Ginger and Clove. It sits close to the skin, and when it dries down it becomes an exotic and light fruity floral.

    According to Molton Brown,

    Exotic flora. Black sands. Fragrant spices perfuming the breeze. Escape to Tahitian shores with the enticing aromas of paradise.

    This alluring eau de toilette fragrance captures the floral character of tuberose and lily from the body collection. These notes are further enhanced with ginger and real rose oil in the top and middle notes, whilst cardamom balances the fragrance. Cedarwood and noble musks in the base notes ensures the aroma lasts.

    Heart notes: Tuberose, Tagetes, Lily and Jasmine.

It has a deep and complex aroma that is distinguished by its deep Tobacco Absolute essence that is enhances by the leather. There is a slight citrus top note that crisps up the edges, but once this magical potion meets the warm water and steam, it is a warm sexy, smokey tobacco that envelops the senses. I wear Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille, and the moment that I first tried this bath and shower gel, I knew that it would be one of my most beloved bath and shower gels.

    According to Molton Brown,

    The complex, cultivated notes of this body wash allows any man to indulge in their inner sense of exploration and enjoy a truly warm and comforting shower.

    I recently discovered AQUA Carpatica, a very refreshing naturally carbonated water, that is said to have skincare benefits. It is lightly carbonated, has no heavy mineral taste, and is a nice alternative to only drinking regular water. 

    According to AQUA Carpatica,

    Because of the location of AQUA Carpatica's protected springs, the water is completely nitrate free and loaded with natural minerals. Nitrates are contaminates from the runoff from fertilizer use, leakage from septic tanks and erosion of natural deposits. You can imagine how bad that is for your body! 

    In addition to being free of nitrates, AQUA Carpatica's naturally sparkling mineral water offers skincare benefits from:
    • Calcium – which helps the body generate new skin cells and shed old cells
    • Magnesium – which has anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and allergy-reducing properties
    • A nearly neutral pH of 6.5 – the closest pH level to pure water compared to other sparkling waters on the market
    • Natural carbonation – which aids in exfoliation and oxygenation of the skin

    About AQUA Carpatica,

    AQUA Carpatica comes from springs deep within the Carpathian Mountains – an ancient land where time seems to stand still, leaving only the pristine beauty of nature and history. It's the last wild forest in Europe, and with no agriculture or industrial activity in the surrounding areas, it's like going back to a time before chemicals, fertilizers, CFCs and other contaminants even existed.

    With AQUA Carpatica, purity and taste go hand in hand. Millions of years of volcanic activity have filtered impurities at the source, and endowed our water with its unrivaled flavor. Natural minerals carbonate AQUA Carpatica's sparkling water – the only nitrate-free, naturally sparkling water on Earth.

    The springs that provide the foundation for AQUA Carpatica have been preserved from the beginning of time and they'll be protected for thousands of years more. Taste AQUA Carpatica, a taste bestowed by nature, a spring safeguarded by nature. www.AquaCarpatica.com        
    Overall Assessment: Perfect picks for a fun Labor Day holiday! Enjoy, and remember to continually reapply your sunscreen and drink plenty of water!
