    Aftelier Perfumes Launches Jasmine Face Elixir by Mandy Aftel | Press Release

    PRESS RELEASE (Unaffiliated Links)

    Aftelier Perfumes launches Jasmine Face Elixir by Mandy Aftel

    Organic Jasmine Face Elixir features the naturally fresh, spicy, intoxicating jasmine sambac. I buy this
    essence directly from a small and careful grower in India who only offers it for sale once a year. This delightful jasmine aroma is uplifting and relaxing. Drifting off to sleep inhaling this gorgeous aroma makes you feel as if all is right in the world. I make my face elixirs in a base of organic oils: rice bran, sweet almond, apricot kernel, camellia, grapeseed, squalene, and rose hip seed. All of these oils are healing and promote cell regeneration. This fresh and floral nourishing treatment for the face is immediately moisturizing, softening, and conditioning. Add some drops of the elixir to your fingertips and gently pat into your clean face before bed. The lightweight non-greasy formula absorbs quickly
    into your skin. You will drift off to sleep in a light veil of fragrance that soothes and relaxes. When you wake up, your skin will feel wonderfully nourished and revitalized. We also offer Organic Honeysuckle Face Elixir and Organic Rose Face Elixir .

    I began making facial oils for my perfume line in the early1990’s and included recipes for making them in my book Essence & Alchemy (2001). Since then facial oils have grown more and more popular. The selection of organic base oils to choose from has grown exponentially over the years, which has
    allowed me to consistently improve my formula. My criteria for using an organic oil in my formula include its ability to promote cell regeneration, be quickly absorbed into the skin, and to have no scent. Because you smell a nighttime facial treatment product even more than you do a perfume -- and fall asleep inhaling it, I feel that it is of paramount importance that the fragrance be beautiful. 

    Organic Jasmine Face Elixir is available in a 15 ml dropper bottle ($65), and a sample size ($6) at www.aftelier.com. Mandy Aftel is an award-winning all-natural perfumer and author. She creates each extraordinary Aftelier Perfumes fragrance by hand in small batches in her Berkeley, California studio. 

    LORAC TANtalizer Body Bronzing Luminizer | Review

    Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

    I received a very lovely email, the other day, from a longtime reader who asked whether I could suggest a temporary body bronzer with a little shimmer for an upcoming evening soirée that she will be attending, and I immediately responded that my top pick was LORAC TANtalizer® Body Bronzing Luminizer, and I promised to post my review this week– so here it is!

    LORAC TANtalizer® Body Bronzing Luminizer is a very easy to use, long-wearing, streak-free body bronzer and luminizer in one fantastic moisturizing product. You simply apply it evenly to your décolleté, arms and legs, and then let it dry before dressing. It should be thought of as body makeup, rather than a skin-staining sunless tanner, and to remove it all you have to do is wash it off.  It gives skin a gorgeous bronze luminosity that is gorgeous any time of the day, but is especially lovely at night since it has a unbeatable ethereal glow in the moonlight!
    According to LORAC,

    Tantalize, mesmerize and moisturize with LORAC's Body Bronzing Luminizer. The quick-drying, long-wearing body makeup instantly gives you a sexy, flawless, better-than-natural red carpet tan without streaking! Infused with Aloe Vera and botanical extracts to soothe skin.

    • Sheer, light& moisturizing
    • Quick & easy application
    • Luminous finish
    Directions: Apply evenly to legs, arms, décolleté, or anywhere you want you want a silky-smooth bronze glow. Let dry thoroughly before dressing.

    LORAC Lip Lustre Gloss in Peach Lustre | Review

    Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

    The LORAC Lip Lustre Gloss formula is lip gloss perfection as far as I'm concerned. It is non-sticky, has the perfect amount of cushion, feels super comfortable on the lips, is moisturizing, and boasts an impressive wear-time despite the fact that it is neither too thick, nor in the least bit tacky.
    LORAC Lip Lustre Gloss in Peach Lustre is a perfect twinkling peach shimmer with a perfect shiny finish. While it is more sheer than opaque, it offers a stunning peachy nude wash of color when worn alone, but is also perfection layered over your favorite lipsticks and lip stains.

    According to LORAC,

    Amp up your look with LORAC Lip Lustre Gloss! Inspired by our top-selling 3D Liquid Lustre Eye Shimmer, these glimmering, glam glosses are paraben-free, super hydrating and infused with antioxidants of Acai Berry, Pomegranate, Grape Seed and Vitamins A, C & E. Wear Lip Lustre alone or with your favorite LORAC lipstick for added sparkle and shine.
    Ingredients: Polybutene, Octyldodecanol, Triisostearyl Citrate, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Ceresin, Flavor, Diisostearyl Malate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Phenoxyethanol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Tin Oxide, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Carum Petroselinum (Parsley) Extract, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Althaea Officinalis (Marsh Mallow) Root Extract, Centaurea Cyanus (Cornflower) Flower Extract, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Punica Granatum Extract, Retinyl Palmitate, May Contain/Peut Contenir: Mica, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Iron Oxides (Ci 77491, 77492, 77499), Red 6 Lake (Ci 15850), Red 7 Lake (Ci 15850), Red 28 Lake (Ci 45410), Red 33 Lake (Ci 17200), Blue 1 Lake (Ci 42090), Yellow 5 Lake (Ci 19140), Yellow 6 Lake (Ci 15985), Manganese Violet (Ci 77742), Carmine (Ci 75470). *May contain Carmine as a color additive.
    Overall Assessment: I love the formula and the color. This gloss is so easy to wear, and it's immensely flattering. Mine has found its permanent home in my makeup bag, and that is saying something!
