Arbonne RE9 Advanced Firming Body Cream and RE9 Advanced Age-Defying Neck Cream | Review

Press Sample (Unaffiliated Link)

Arbonne, a wonderful botanical based skincare line, recently introduced three new products to their wildly popular RE9 Advanced healthy aging range of products: A neck cream, retexturizing serum in lotion and a firming body cream, and I have the body cream and neck cream to share with you.

According to Arbonne,

These three new body care products feature cleaner formulas with gold standard ingredients that deliver even better results. RE9 Advanced body products support healthy-looking skin thanks to the amazing power of vitamin C – a skincare gold standard that helps support healthy-looking skin at any age.
RE9 Advanced Age-Defying Neck Cream ($85.00 for 1.7 oz. from Arbonne): This rich, and ultra-emollient, neck cream is remarkably lightweight and fast absorbing, and yet it leaves behind no greasy residue. It leaves skin very soft, supple, smooth and deeply moisturized. Furthermore, it improves and softens the appearance of fine lines by plumping and smoothing the skin. It is worth noting that it has no discernible aroma, and therefore shouldn't bother people with sensitivities to fragrance.

According to Arbonne,

A rich cream, formulated with peptides, that helps improve the appearance of firmness by adding moisture to the delicate neck and décolletage area, while stabilized vitamin C boosts and maintains moisture to support collagen. This cream moisturizes to help improve the appearance of the most stubborn signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness and elasticity; neck, décolletage and jawline appear redefined as skin regains a smoother, more lifted appearance.

Directions: Apply to the contours of the chin, jawline, neck, and décolletage. Massage in upward, circular motions.

Ingredients: Aqua/Water/Eau, Caprylic/CapricTriglyceride, Dimethicone, Glycerin, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Steareth-2, Steareth-21, Cetearyl Alcohol, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Callus Culture Extract, Hippophae Rhamnoides Oil, Laminaria Digitata Extract, Leontopodium Alpinum Callus Culture Extract, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Ruscus Aculeatus Root Extract, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Tocopherol, Acetyl Tetrapeptide-2, Caffeine, Calcium Gluconate, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Gluconolactone, Xanthan Gum, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Carbomer, Aminomethyl Propanediol, Citric Acid, Sodium Hydroxide, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate.
RE9 Advanced Firming Body Cream ($75.00 for 6.7 oz. from Arbonne): I don't really have any dimpled skin, which this luxurious cream is intended to treat, but my arms and legs have been unusually dry and chapped lately, and in much need of serious hydration. Therefore, I have been slathering this rich ultra-luxe cream all over my arms and legs and I have noticed a distinct improvement in hydration, the parched dry patches have abated, and my skin is very supple, smooth, soft and quite luminous after use. The texture of my skin is improved overall, particularly since this cream banished the chapped skin. While the texture and consistency is really quite rich and thick, it melts into the skin and doesn't leave behind a greasy residue. There is a very slight orange aroma, that smells lovely, but it is quite faint and fades as soon as it absorbs into the skin.

According to Arbonne,

This luxurious cream deeply nourishes the skin with hydration, formulated with red algae extract, to smooth the appearance of dimpled skin and promote a shapelier-looking silhouette. It immediately improves the look of skin tone and texture leaving skin soft and silky with a renewed glow.

Directions: Apply liberally to body, concentrating on the thighs, stomach, bust, and upper arms. Massage gently using circular motions.

Ingredients: Aqua/Water/Eau, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Dimethicone, Squalane, Cetearyl Alcohol, Coco-Glucoside, Carbomer, Caesalpinia Spinosa Fruit Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Callus Culture Extract, Imperata Cylindrica Root Extract, Jania Rubens Extract, Kappaphycus Alvarezii Extract, Laminaria Digitata Extract, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Ruscus Aculeatus Root Extract, Hippophae Rhamnoides Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Hexapeptide-10, Biotin, Caffeine, Glucose, Xanthan Gum, Calcium Gluconate, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium PCA, Gluconolactone, Tocopherol, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Caprylhydroxamic Acid, Aminomethyl Propanediol, Sodium Citrate, Citric Acid, Sodium Hydroxide, Phenoxyethanol, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Fragrance/Parfum, Limonene, Linalool.
Overall Assessment: If you are seeking a luxurious ad effective neck cream and body cream, these are quite nice.

LAVANILA The Healthy Deodorant Elements Collection | Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

My go-to daily deodorant has been LAVANILA The Healthy Deodorant for many years, and I love them more than I can begin to describe. They are healthy, devoid of harmful ingredients, they smell lovely and they are very effective. Furthermore, they neither stain closing, nor do they leave a white residue on the skin. They are, in a word, perfection.

I am delighted to tell you that they just launched the LAVANILA Elements Collection, available at Sephora, that is a, "collection of fresh, energizing deodorants where health and wellness collide." LAVANILA sought inspiration from the "core elements of nature — Air, Water and Earth" and these aluminum-free deodorants are "infused with carefully curated blends of pure essential oils to awaken our connection to the Elements and the immense power within them."

The LAVANILA Elements Limited Edition Collection is available in three delectable scents:

Vanilla + Air for Creativity: "An uplifting, floral pairing of violet and rose, perfect for a budding artist or brainstorming session." This lovely light floral has a beautiful floral aroma that is punctuated by rose and violet, but it is neither too strong or sweet, nor is it powdery. Instead, the lovely fragrance sits close to the skin and has a refined and elegant floral scent.

Vanilla + Water for Peace: "A calming blend of chamomile and jasmine ideal for yoga class or stressful meetings." This deodorant has such an extraordinary aroma that is best described as a sweet floral reminiscent of a warm ocean breeze infused with Jasmine and other light florals.

Vanilla + Earth for Balance: "A warm and woody combination of patchouli and sandalwood that enhances focus and concentration." While its description might summon thoughts of a heavy woody scent punctuated by a pungent patchouli, this is a light, sweet and creamy woodsy scent infused with warm florals, and without any detectable notes from the patchouli. It has a depth and yet it isn't in the least bit overpowering.
About LAVANILA The Healthy Deodorant Elements Collection,

An aluminum-free deodorant collection from LAVANILA that delivers powerful odor protection while uniquely imparting a sense of wellness.

This award-winning, aluminum-free odor protection is powered by proprietary technology and antioxidants for daily defense and nourishment. Each deodorant nourishes the underarm area while a special blend of essential oils imparts a unique sense of well-being.
This collection is award-winning, vegan, cruelty-free, dermatologist recommended, and clinically tested.
Ingredients: Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe Juice, Water), Propanediol (Corn Derived), Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Sodium Stearate (Coconut Derived), Silica, Carrageenan (Seaweed Derived), Stearyl Behenate (Coconut Derived), Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon Peel Oil), Inulin (Artichoke Derived), Saccharomyces Ferment, Alpha-Glucan Oligosaccharide (Sugar Derived), Yeast Beta Glucan, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Valeriana Officinalis Root Extract (Valerian), Hydrastis Canadensis (Goldenseal) Extract, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Lycium Barbarum Fruit Extract (Goji Berry), Vanilla Planifolia (Vanilla) Oil, Botanical Fragrance Blend. Formulated without Sulfates or Phthalates.
Overall Assessment: I have been rotating between these three deodorants since having received them, and the only change that I would suggest would be to make them part of the permanent collection. These are well worth having! A+

THE MAKEUP WARS TEAM PICKS THE BEST FACE PRIMER & FOUNDATION PAIRINGS

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

The Makeup Wars! Team is currently featuring our favorite face primers and foundation pairings, but I could only pick my favorite primer that I pair with all of my foundations and tinted moisturizers. It isn't that I don't love particular foundations– it's that I love so many of them, but their one unifying force is the primer that I pair with each of them– which is the HOURGLASS Veil Mineral Primer.

Among the foundations and tinted moisturizers that I routinely pair with this fantastic primer are: HOURGLASS Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick (Reviewed HERE), HOURGLASS Veil Fluid Makeup (Reviewed HERE), Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Youth-Boosting Perfect Skin Foundation (Reviewed HERE), TOM FORD Beauty Traceless Foundation SPF 15 (Discussed HERE), TOM FORD Beauty Traceless Foundation Stick (Reviewed HERE), NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 (Reviewed HERE) and Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Moisture Foundation (Discussed HERE). The HOURGLASS Veil Mineral Primer is my go-to primer for the aforementioned foundations and tinted moisturizers because it gives them a perfected finish, radically enhanced longevity, and their textures pair perfectly.

HOURGLASS Veil Mineral Primer is an ultra-luxe complexion perfecting primer that glides across the skin like velvet. It creates an even and ultra-smooth finish, it reduces redness and the appearance of fine line and pores, it provides the skin with SPF 15 protection, and it creates a perfect canvas for your foundations and tinted moisturizers. Furthermore, it markedly increases the wear-time of your makeup, but perhaps one of the most satisfying aspects of using this primer is that it has the most luxurious silky texture that HOURGLASS aptly describes as airy and cloud-like. This tactile experience makes its use heavenly, and addictive! While it is white in the bottle, it blends into the skin invisibly and leaves behind no white residue.

According to HOURGLASS,

The perfect complexion starts with Veil Mineral Primer. As the first step in your makeup routine, it creates the ideal canvas for your makeup to effortlessly slide on and stay on for all-day wear. The silky, weightless texture smooths and evens out the skin for perfect application and wear every time. It’s the one product that will elevate your foundation to unprecedented performance.

Elevate your foundation to unprecedented performance with this state-of-the-art primer that extends the wear of foundation for a perfect complexion that lasts. With a texture unlike any other, this oil free primer not only creates a smooth, even canvas for makeup, but also conceals redness, minimizes the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles, and provides broad spectrum SPF 15 protection, all in a supremely airy, silky, cloud-like texture.
Features:
• Multipurpose primer goes beyond traditional formulations, concealing redness (even rosacea) to even skin tone, while minimizing the look of visible pores, fine lines and imperfections.
• Creates a smooth, even surface so that foundation effortlessly glides on and stays on for all day makeup wear.
• First of its kind primer, with an airy, silky cloud-like texture, layers onto skin without added weight or a greasy after feel
• Delivers broad spectrum SPF 15 sun protection with mineral-derived sunscreens, Titanium and Zinc Oxide.
• Oil free formula is appropriate for all skin types, even sensitive, blemish-prone skin.
• Repels water so makeup looks freshly applied all day long.
• Vegan

Directions: Apply ½ to 1 pump of Veil Mineral Primer to clean, moisturized skin prior to concealer, foundation and powder application. Works with any cream, liquid and powder foundation.

Ingredients: Zinc Oxide 4.20%, Titanium Dioxide 2.45%. Alumina, Cyclopentasiloxane, Hexyl Laurate, Isododecane, Peg-10 Dimethicone, Polyglyceryl-4, Isosterate, Polysilicone-11, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Stearic Acid.

Gurunanda Pure Essential Oils Wall Plug-In Diffuser | Review

Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

I have quite a number of essential oil diffusers in my house, but I have largely restricted their use to bathrooms whose doors remain shut at all times. Since many essential oils are incompatible with felines, and can cause them serious health issues, I only enjoy them in my bathrooms. This is perfect, however, when I am showering, bathing or getting ready in the morning (without my feline friends). All of my other diffusers require water in the basin that is sprinkled with essential oils, whereas the ingenious Gurunanda Pure Essential Oils Wall Plug-In Diffuser plugs directly into the wall, or into any USB port. You simply attach a bottle of Gurunanda Essential Oils (sold separately) and then plug it in.
According to Gurunanda,

GuruNanda Natural Mist™ is a USB powered Essential Oil Diffuser that sprays 100% Pure Essential Oil Mist. It's time to opt for natural products to freshen the air in your home.

Enjoy 100% Pure, Chemical-Free Essential Oil Aroma Notes In Your Home and Office Spaces.  

Add Your Favorite Essential Oils To The GuruNanda USB Wall Plug-In Diffuser For A Natural Air Freshener With Pure Therapeutic Grade Plant Essential Oils.

The First of Its Kind, This Plug-In Diffuser Will Have You Breathing In Natural Aromas From Botanical Gardens Around the World.
The diffuser base features an on/off button that boasts additional functionality:
• The blue light releases a couple of puffs of essential oils every 10 minutes
• The green light releases a couple of puffs of essential oils every 20 minutes

Includes:
1 USB Wall Plug-In Diffuser
1 USB Wall Adaptor
1 User Manual

Features:
No Water Required.
Diffuse Essential Oils Directly From Bottle.
Two Spritz Modes - Every 10 Minutes or Every 20 Minutes.
 Directions: After Opening ANY GuruNanda Essential Oil Bottle, follow the following steps:

1. Fit It into your "Natura Mist". Be sure to take off the plastic dripper plug and then, screw the bottle in.
2. Plug It into a USB port or plug into the USB adapter and plug into a wall outlet.
3. Mist It every 10 minutes by pressing the button once and every 20 minutes by pressing the button twice.
Overall Assessment: These are also very handy if you do a lot of traveling and want to bring a diffuser with you. I really like this diffuser so much that I might have to get another one for my guest bathroom.

Diffuser $19.99 from Gurunanda (Essential Oils sold separately) (Unaffiliated Links).

Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Youth-Boosting Perfect Skin Foundation | Review and Swatches #CHARLOTTETILBURY

Affiliate Links

As you are no doubt aware, I recently splurged on numerous treasures from Charlotte Tilbury, and I have been so delighted by her high quality luxury line that I just can't stop praising its magnificence. In fact, the Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Youth-Boosting Perfect Skin Foundation in Fair 3, which was my most recent acquisition, was one of my best recent purchases. Fair 3, which is the third lightest of the shades, is not a bad match for my skin tone. It's a touch yellow-based, and while it contrasts a bit with my cool-toned skin– it does melt into my skin seamlessly without appearing too warm for my complexion.

The lightweight formula is neither matte, nor is it dewy– instead it offers a natural finish that lightly illuminates the skin without making it appear wet or greasy. It glides across the skin effortlessly and it neither emphasizes fine lines, nor does it settle into pores. It offers the skin a silky finish, and it hydrates the skin without compromising its own longevity. Furthermore, it boasts light to medium buildable coverage while it evens out skin tone. If, however, you prefer full coverage foundations this may not be the best foundation for you. I prefer tinted moisturizers and light coverage foundations– therefore this is just my type of foundation. It is formulated to work well for most types of skin including dry, normal and combination. I suspect that it will also work well for oiler skin types.

Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Youth-Boosting Perfect Skin Foundation comes in a lightweight plastic bottle with a nozzle top that prevents spills, and makes it perfect for travel or for your makeup bag. It does contain an SPF 15, which is an added bonus, however I only ever use a minimum of an SPF 30, and therefore I still have to use an additional sunscreen.
According to Charlotte Tilbury,

Darlings, my Light Wonder Foundation in Fair 2 is the perfect shade for fair skin tones. Featuring ingredients to smooth, hydrate, illuminate, minimise pores AND reduce wrinkles.
Features:
• Innovative technology evens out imperfections and moisturizes your skin in a lightweight formula.
• SPF15 protects your skin from UV damage.
• Youth-boosting actives reduce wrinkles, evens out complexion and smooths your complexion for baby-soft skin.
• Pseudo-ceramides hydrate your skin for up to 18 hours.
• Ideal for dry, normal and combination skin types that want sheer, flawless coverage

Directions: To use, start by squeezing a small amount of foundation on the back of your hand. Using Charlotte’s FOUNDATION BRUSH or your fingertips, blend into your skin from the middle outwards, patting onto areas where you need extra coverage.

Charlotte’s Tip: Use this foundation mixed with WONDERGLOW Face Primer for a gorgeous glowing complexion.
Ingredients: Cyclopentasiloxane, Water (Aqua), Hydrogenated Didodecene, Titanium Dioxide (Nano), Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Mica, Glycerin, Sorbitan Isostearate, PEG/PPG - 18/18 Dimethicone, Sodium Chloride, Cyclohexasiloxane, Aluminum/Magnesium Hydroxide Stearate, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Squalane, Cetearyl Ethylhexanoate, Dimethicone, BIS-C24-28 Hydroxyalkyl Olivoyl Glutamate , Disodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Methylparaben, Potassium Sorbate, Propylparaben, Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearate, Fragrance (Parfum), Glycine Soja (Soybean) Sterols, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Laureth-4, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Sodium Citrate, Vigna Aconitifolia Seed Extract, BHT, Chlorphenesin, [May Contain: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Mica, Iron Oxides (CI 77491 ,CI 77492, CI 77499), Ultramarines (CI 77007), Tin Oxide (CI 77861)]. This product is vegan-friendly, gluten-free, sulfate-free, and not tested on animals.
Overall Assessment: I am so pleased with the finish, coverage and longevity of this lovely foundation, but I do wish that the brand would increase the color range by adding both fairer and darker shades so that more people could enjoy its wonderful formula.

$46.00 for 1.4 oz. / 40ml. from Charlotte Tilbury, Nordstrom, Cult Beauty, Bloomingdale's, Net-A-PorterSelfridges, Bergdorf Goodman and Beautylish (Affiliate Links).
