Radiant New Year || Beauty Review

{MAC Rouge En Snow Lipstick}

With festive holiday parties and New Year's Eve around the corner, we're all wanting to look our best!    Not only for the soirees, but resolutions provide an opportunity to try new things, like switching up your skincare or hair treatment routine.  I've been sampling a lot of products that were recently gifted to me, so I wanted to share with you some gems I've recently discovered....

1. Phytocitrus Color Protect Radiance Shampoo - A lot of you have been asking me about tips for bright blonde hair - this shampoo really wowed me!  I wasn't expecting to see such noticeable positive results, but my hair instantly had a brighter blonde color and a visible shine.  My tip: Mix this in with with your regular shampoo as it can be a little heavy on it's own.  I consider it an enhancement product to use with my current routine, and I only add this in every other wash.  I also do a 2nd shampoo with purple shampoo once a week to cancel out any brassiness and keep my blonde a baby white shade.

2. Lancome Absolue Eye Precious Cells - This has become one of my favorite eye creams, along with this one from Mario Badescu.  Precious Cells is a thicker cream, but still quick-absorbing.  I have noticed that my eyes look bright and awake, with puffiness visibly minimized!  Containing a powerful ingredient "Pro-Xylane," I hope to see fine lines also minimize over time.  I've only been using it for a couple of weeks, so I'll continue to report on results.  I'm loving it so far.

3. Lancôme Tonique Radiance Clarifying Exfoliating Toner - This toner has a soothing, pampering effect, which makes toning pleasurable.  I feel a slight tingling/clean sensation when using.  I like the results as well, as my face appears smooth and bright.

4. Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser - This cleanser is one of my new favorites, and definitely my winter essential - it literally warms your face upon contact!  Every morning I anticipate the moment I can cleanse my face, it's so cozy. :)  I also am really loving the results - my pores appear minimized (which is important to me) and my face feels soft.

5. Boccia Charcoal Deep-Pore Cleansing Stick Treatment - Another impressive cleanser - this time, in stick form!  What is great about the twist-base stick form, is the ability to really deep clean your pores.  I have naturally oily skin, and this cleanser truly minimizes shine and pores.
