Susan Thompson Cosmetics BB Cream in Light | Review

Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

My close friend, Susan Thompson, has recently expanded her eponymously named makeup up line, and it has everything that a makeup enthusiast could ever dream of having!

Susan Thompson Cosmetics, "originated as a makeup line developed for professional use in high fashion and entertainment. The products are formulated to integrate light adjusting and soft focus particles to create flawless skin without fine lines, wrinkles and large pores."

Susan Thompson Cosmetics BB Cream is a described as part skincare, part makeup. It is hydrating and offers sheer radiant coverage. It produces a very natural, no makeup look, and yet it perfects skin tone for a flawless finish. The soft focus particles capture the light effortlessly, and soften the appearance of pores and fine lines.

I chose Light since it was the closest to my skin color, and while it swatches as a warmer yellow-based shade– once it warms up with my body chemistry it matches perfectly despite the fact that I have cool-toned skin.

The texture of the BB Cream is light, silky and creamy, and it glides across the skin effortlessly. It never settles into, or accentuates fine lines or pores, and it leaves skin luminous and hydrated. Unlike many products that contain soft focus particles, the effect is very subtle and natural– rather than glittery and unnatural.

While this is certainly in the category of a BB Cream, it clearly leans closer to the finish of a tinted moisturizer than to that of a full-coverage foundation, and while it is more sheer than opaque it does offer some buildable coverage.

I am also quite impressed that once applied it stays put all day on my normal to combination skin, and the only time that I need to touch up is when I reapply sunscreen.

Available in 4 shades: Fair, Light, Medium and Dark
Directions: Apply 1-2 pumps on kabuki foundation brush or clean finger tips.
For brush users: Rotate the cheeks in circular motion covering the face to blend for an airbrush effect.
Clean Fingertips: Dot foundation or BB cream once on each cheek, dab on forehead, nose and chin and blend to desired coverage.
All Susan Thompson Cosmetics products are:
Paraben Free
Hypo-Allergenic
Allergy Tested
Non-Comedogenic
Fragrance Free
Not Tested on Animals

May contain: Iron Oxides, Titanium Dioxide. (Made in Canada)

Overall Assessment: I have worn this every single day since I received it, and have to say that I'm quite impressed with it. During the warmer months, NARS Tinted Moisturizer has been my go-to finishing product for several years, but now it is collecting dust thanks to this lovely BB Cream.

Tom Ford Cream and Powder Eye Color in Midnight Sea | Review, Swatches & Availability

Purchased by Me (Affiliated Links)

Tom Ford Beauty Cream and Powder Eye Color in Midnight Sea (Limited Edition) from the Summer 2015 Soleil Collection is still available, and like Tom Ford Cream and Powder Eye Color in Naked Bronze (Limited Edition; reviewed here) it is worth every last cent. I am so glad that I picked one up, and urge you to grab one, if you have been wanting this twinkling gem, while there are still some left.

This staggeringly beautiful duo features a stunning Cream Color for Eyes on the bottom that is a repromote of Spring 2015 Cream Color for Eyes (Limited Edition; reviewed here). It is a complex khaki-kissed charcoal shade that is so exceptional that I was happy to repurchase it for its sooty smoky goodness. However, I also really needed that stunning Celestial Powder in that luscious teal shade because it was unlike anything else in my collection.

While the teal Celestial Shade offers stunning shimmer, it is not too glittery, and therefore is even office appropriate if you tone it down by sheering out the Cream Shadow. It does, however, offer buildable coverage that would be far more appropriate for an intense evening look. Unless you have oily eyelids, you won't likely feel the need to use a primer underneath the cream shadow. I find this formula to be budge-proof and it lasts on me all day without fading, creasing or smudging.
 According to Tom Ford Beauty,

Tom Ford Cream & Powder Eye Color pairs two coveted formulas in one to create a lustrous and sexy summertime eye. The ultra-pigmented, metallic cream shadow glides onto lids with a rich, molten glow and the sparkling celestial powder intensifies the look with alluring shimmer.
About the Summer 2015 Tom Ford Beauty Soleil Collection:

The Summer 2015 Tom Ford Soleil Collection captures the warmth and sensuality of summer skin. Eyes smolder in burnished, sun-kissed tones or metallic shades of aqua and storm. Cheeks glow with luminous warmth and lips are saturated with sheer shades of nude and rose. Completing the irresistible effect, Tom Ford Shimmering Body Oil veils the skin in golden light and fragrance that evokes the erotic pleasure of sand, sea and sun.
Bottom to Top: Cream Shadow, Celestial Powder Shadow and layering the two.
Left to Right: Cream Shadow, Celestial Powder Shadow and layering the two. 
     If you missed out on Spring 2015 Cream Color for Eyes, then don't miss it in this new incarnation!
Spring 2015 and Midnight Sea
While Spring 2015 and the Cream Color in Midnight Sea are said to be one and the same, my swatches of Spring 2015 seem to indicate that while the hue is the same that the intensity seems a touch amplified in Spring 2015.
These swatches fail in comparison to seeing the magnificence of Midnight Sea in person.
Cream Color for Eyes in Spring 2015 is $42.00 for .21 oz. vs. the Cream Color for Eyes in Midnight Sea is $60.00 for .24 oz. of Cream Color and .07 oz. of the Celestial Powder Shadow.

I am so glad that I picked one up, and urge you to grab one, if you have been wanting this twinkling gem, while there are still some left.

This glimmering duo features a stunning, warm bronze shimmer cream shadow (repromoted Spice) on the bottom of the two-tiered compact and a stunning warm golden celestial powder on the top. This gorgeous combination of colors creates the perfect warm sun-kissed summer bronzy glow. While the celestial shade offers stunning shimmer, it is not too glittery, and therefore is even office appropriate. Unless you have oily eyelids, you won't likely feel the need to use a primer underneath the cream shadow. I find this formula to be budge-proof and it lasts on me all day without fading, creasing or smudging. The only improvement that I would suggest has nothing to do with the formula, and everything to do with the fact that these should be made part of the permanent line!

Get Your Glow On with Tarina Tarantino's Pearl Glow Luminizing Primer | Review and Swatches

Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

Skin luminizers offer a wonderful way to enhance the complexion, offer a dewy finish, and the highly sought-after youthful luminosity. They are perfect for everything from warm weather minimalist makeup to a more formal evening out, and they can be used in a multitude of ways. Tarina Tarantino's Pearl Glow Luminizing Primer, however, differs from the typical luminizers because it is also a primer, and therefore this 2 in 1 formula is a high performing multipurpose product.

As a primer, Tarina Tarantino's Pearl Glow Luminizing Primer extends the life of finishing products while offering them a gorgeous glow. It glides across the skin effortlessly and provides a perfect smooth base for tinted moisturizers, BB and CC creams and foundations– extending their wear-time exponentially. Furthermore, the light reflecting pigments soften the appearance of fine lines, pores, and any other noticeable imperfections in favor of a youthful and luminous glow.

I have used Pearl Glow Luminizing Primer in the following ways:

1) An All-Over Light Luminizer on Nearly No-Makeup Days: The luminosity that this lovely product imparts is perfect for days when I only feel like wearing sunscreen, mascara and lip gloss. It offers added dimension to the skin that looks natural and dewy.

2) As a Strategically Placed Highlighter: This is perfect to use when you only seek to highlight specific parts of the face like cheek bones etc.

3) Used Under Makeup as a Primer: For the times that you really want or need to use a primer, but this one offers the skin gorgeous praiseworthy radiance.

4) On Top of Makeup as a Luminizer: If you seek a less diffused luminizer, and aren't seeking the effects of a primer.

5) Mixing it with a Foundation, BB or CC Cream, or Tinted Moisturizer: This has always been one of my favorite ways to use a luminizer because it allows you to customize the coverage and level of luminosity desired.

In each of the aforementioned modes of application, I found that Tarina Tarantino's Pearl Glow Luminizing Primer did an outstanding job. It is highly effective as a primer and luminizer, and has a gorgeous glowing finish.
 According to Tarina Tarantino,

This is an amazing 2 in 1 formula providing luminosity and primer in 1, for all skin types! This formula contains light reflective pigments which bounce the light away from the face giving a soft focus diffused glow leaving skin looking youthful and perfected.
Ingredients: Water, Octyldodecanol, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Oleosomes, Glycerin, Alumina, Manganese Dioxide, Polyacrylamide, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Laureth-7, Sodium Hydroxide, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Mica, Titanium Dioxide.
Overall Assessment: Pragmatic and pretty– what a winning combination.

Summer Ready Skin with The Mio Skincare Body Brush and The A Cream | Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

With the warm weather comes the natural tendency to expose more skin, and this added exposure means that skin requires some extra TLC. Aside from the obvious necessity to dutifully apply and reapply effective sunscreen with the minimum SPF of 30, this is likewise a great time to exfoliate and moisturize the skin. Exfoliation not only removes dead skin cells and leaves skin smooth, soft and supple, but it also allows for better product penetration and absorption. Additionally, unobstructed by dead skin cells less product can be used, and therefore exfoliation is a viable way to save some money.

While exfoliation generally conjures images of tubes of product with exfoliating particles, there is an altogether different approach that is exceedingly effective, and carries with it added health benefits. Dry brushing, as it is known, is an age-old technique that also boosts circulation, helps with lymphatic drainage, removes toxins, and help reduce the appearance of cellulite. 

Two obsession-worthy products to prep your skin for the warm weather are The Mio Skincare Body Brush and their The A Cream.
The Mio Body Brush is a natural dry brush that effortlessly reveals beautiful soft, smooth and supple skin,

According to Mio,

This is your must have tool for smooth, stimulated and orange-peel free skin. Our natural boar bristle brush with massage nodules is super simple to use and it really works.

• Helps with lymphatic drainage, removing toxins and bloat
• Exfoliates, revealing smoother, fresher, more vibrant skin
• Helps release stubborn lumpy areas, improving cellulite
• It stimulates and boosts circulation

Suggestion Directions for Dry Body Brushing:
  • Best done in the morning, perhaps before you shower.
  • Start at soles of your feet (We know, side benefit is it tickles).
  • Work up your calves, always brush in the direction of your heart (so upwards on legs). This means you are moving in the natural direction of your lymph system. Lymph nodes are found all over the body, with clusters in the neck, underarms, chest, abdomen, groin and knees. 
  • Remember the backs of your knees when brushing your thighs!
  • Pay special attention to backs of thighs or areas where you have cellulite. Use upward strokes.
  • Before moving onto your upper body, brush your hands and arms, again moving brush towards heart.
  • Brush under arms too, and pay special attention to wobbly backs of upper arms.
I would add that one need not apply a lot of pressure to the skin, but instead let the brush do the work. It is also important to note that you want to avoid doing this on irritated or broken skin. If you have suspicious looking lumps or moles, consult with your doctor before dry brushing, or exfoliating. The last thing that you want to do is exfoliate anything that may point to a more serious skin condition such as skin cancer.

My Experience: Not only is body brushing very easy to do, but it really truly works wonders. Mio Skincare suggests using it for 3 minutes, 3 times a week to see the amazing benefits. My skin was immediately smoother and softer, and had amazing clarity and luminosity. I actually find that it feels very good on the skin, and unlike regular dry brushes this one features natural boar bristles that are punctuated my rubber massage nodules. It is very easy to use and comfortable to hold, and the cotton handle makes sure that you are able to maintain a nice grip on the brush. After dry brushing I hop in the shower and then immediately apply their The A Cream Firming Active Body Cream to warm slightly damp skin.
"After dry brushing I hop in the shower and then immediately apply their The A Cream Firming Active Body Cream to warm slightly damp skin."
The A Cream Firming Active Body Cream is a luxurious lightweight, but rich body cream that sinks in quickly leaving behind no greasy residue. It leaves skin soft, supple, moisturized, and glowing. Furthermore, it has a lifting and firming effect on the skin, and when used in conjunction with the dry brush the results are astounding. It also has a delectable clean scent that is indescribably pleasant and comforting.

According to Mio,

Our fabulously light but rich skin strengthening body cream creates a soothing shield to combat dryness and boost elasticity. With Omegas, antioxidants and vitamins.

Mega-moisturises, restores elasticity and firmness
Fortifies dry skin for long-term strength and resilience
Smells amazing, gives skin a gorgeous rich glow
Apply daily to shower damp skin to help seal in extra moisture.

ZO Skin Health Oclipse Smart Tone SPF 50 | Review

 Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

The necessity to use sunscreen simply cannot be sufficiently underscored, and I, for one don't even walk to my car without slathering myself with a minimum SPF 30, but actually prefer higher sun protection factor on my face, neck, décolleté and hands. These vulnerable areas of the body receive so much sun exposure that one has to be particularly diligent about protecting them. My family dermatologist also happens to be a well-known surgeon who scared me into sunscreen submission long ago as he told me about the skin cancer that he sees on a daily basis.

When I was contacted to test and review Zo Skin Health Oclipse Smart Tone SPF 50, I was thrilled to try this new innovative sunscreen. I had tried one of Dr. Obagi's sunscreens years ago, and thought that it was absolutely amazing, and therefore couldn't wait to see this new advanced technology sunscreen.
Press Release:
ZO Skin Health, Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of Oclipse® Smart Tone SPF 50 (SPF), a revolutionary new broad-spectrum sunscreen with patented color-bursting beads that match any skin tone. Developed by legendary dermatologist Dr. Zein Obagi, MD, Oclipse® Smart Tone offers a powerful dose of UVA and UVB all day sun protection, while also helping to shield the skin from cell damaging high energy visible (HEV) light. The multi-tasking formula addresses every need, from helping skin support its own natural repair process to helping tackle irritation and pigmentation, all while drenching the skin with conditioners to soften and soothe.

What’s especially unique about Oclipse® Smart Tone is that it contains micro-beads which burst when rubbed into skin to create customizable color on any skin tone, creating a perfect tint to be worn alone or as a make-up primer.

The technologically-advanced formula is super-charged with soothing extracts of Petasites Japonicus Root Extract and Beta Glucan to minimize irritants that can cause redness. The organic sunscreen is also infused with Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil to provide moisture and aid in lipid repair. To discourage the formation of new pigmentation and freckles, it’s fortified with a healthy dose of vitamin C.

“Smart Tone’s groundbreaking formula is both a novel advance in sunscreen and an ideal fit for our growing portfolio of highly differentiated medical technology products focused on skin disorders and skin health,” says James Headley, CEO and President, ZO Skin Health, Inc. “It’s one of the reasons why we are one of the fastest growing skincare companies in the world. We’re incredibly proud of this product – it is the next generation of sunscreen.”

“Using my many decades of experience as a dermatologist, scientist and pathologist, I have developed this sunscreen to protect the skin, restore the skin, and maintain skin health,” says Zein Obagi, M.D. “Now everyone can reap the benefits of this science.”
My Experience: Zo Skin Health Oclipse Smart Tone SPF 50 is a highly effective broad-spectrum sunscreen that employs advanced cutting-edge technology. Among the novel aspects of this sunscreen is its ability to match any skin tone, and it certainly did that for my skin. The customizable color beads, with broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection, somehow magically adjust to match any skin tone while providing additional protection for the skin against HEV light.

The nourishing formula boasts an exclusive proprietary 12-hour time release antioxidant complex that protects the skin against photo-damage.

The texture is creamy, soft and emollient, but not is the least bit greasy. It sinks in quickly allowing one to apply their makeup immediately. It is velvety smooth, offers hydration, and leaves the skin soft and supple.  Furthermore,  Oclipse Smart Tone's ability to match individual skin tones means that an even-toned perfected complexion is one of the lovely benefits of using this sunscreen.

Benefits:
  • Customizable color beads with broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection to match any skin tone
  • Provides additional protection against HEV light
  • Anti-redness properties
  • Exclusive 12-hour time release antioxidant complex guards against photo-damage
Suggested Use: "Apply 15 minutes prior to sun exposure. Apply a dime size amount to clean skin and blend over face and neck. A hint of color will slowly develop as the product is applied. Reapply at least every two hours. For children under 6 months of age: Ask a doctor."

Follow ZO Skin Health on:

Overall Assessment: I'm very impressed by this sunscreen because it is so effective at protecting the skin, but one needs to be constantly reminded that sunscreen must to be reapplied every two hours to  protect the skin against the harmful rays of the sun. All too often, we run about with a false sense of security because we applied sunscreen in the morning, but forgot to reapply it at any point during the day. Therefore, even the best sunscreen on the planet is only effective if continually reapplied throughout the day. While I am diligent about applying my sunscreen every single day, I am not always as good about my reapplication. Recalling some of the stories that my dermatologist told me is all the motivation that I need to reapply my sunscreen throughout the day!
