Key Ingredients: Tamanu, Chaulmoogra, Tacamahca Seed Oil, Glycosaminoglycans, Matrixyl

Review: phormula 3-9 claims to be Dr. Laszio’s masterpiece. Aversion of this cream was designed for Marilyn Monroe to treat an abdominal scar. The texture of this balm was very creamy and was thick like a balm. I found it hard to smooth it over my skin. I had to use a lot of the product to cover my face. Though my dryer skin did feel hydrated.

This formula doesn’t blow me away. The Tamanu ingredient is from Polynesia. This ingredient is known for healing ever skin ailment you can think of. Though there is no scientific evidence to back up the claims. Chaulmoogra oil was once used to cure leprosy worldwide and is a skin irritant. This cream is similar to other emollient based moisturizer. If you go to the website this cream claims to heal wounds. Wrinkles aren’t wounds.  This cream isn’t worth the $249 price tag.

Beauty Review: Kate Somerville ExoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment

Claims: The next best thing to Kate Somerville’s facial at home. Balance the skin with hydration, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, Smooth and soften skin.

Review: This product is filled with irritating ingredients. Cinnamon, Orange, Geranium, Patchouli oils, and Rosewood. The packaging welcomes light and sun to compromise the formula. The lactic acid is supposed to help exfoliate the skin but the pH is too high to work.

I do not recommend for anyone. This product is a waste of money.

Beauty Review: Jane Iredale Tantasia

Claims: Self Tanner that is hydrating and natural looking.

Review: This self tanner is similar to most self tanners. It turns your skin a darker color with the ingredient, dihydroxyacetone. Most self tanners use this ingredient. This product isn’t as hydrating as I thought it would be. I have dry skin and I wished I had put on a moisturizer under the self tanner. This product didn’t irritate my skin at all. I recommend for Normal to oily skin types.

Beauty Review: Estee Lauder Sumptuous Two Tone Mascara

I was working in Nordstrom last week for an event called Beauty on the Go. I was near the Estee Lauder counter and I was looking at their runway looks from fashion week. Let me tell you. Their National Make up artist is quite talented. I saw some amazing warm tones I am going to try.

Estee Lauder has this new mascara that is double-sided. One with a full size Sumptuous Mascara brush and the other is a smaller brush just for the bottom lashes. I chose Bold Black and Brown. There are other options. Bold Black/Plum, Bold Black/Rich Blue. I chose the Bold Black/ Brown shade because I wanted a more natural look.

The point of the tw shades is that the Bold Black on the top lashes lift and separate . The bottom lash color is what makes your eye color pop. If you have Hazel/Green eyes try the Plum, if you have Brown eyes try the Blue, and for Blue eyes go with Brown.

I love this mascara. There was no smudging under my eyes. The mascara was so light and separated my lashes. It looked like I had false lashes on. I give this mascara five stars!
