Monthly Favorites: September 2019

What started as a farm has now evolved into a lifestyle brand. Beekman 1802 works with farmers, craftspeople, and artisans to produce everything from food, home items to apparel and skincare.

They sent over their Triple Milk Collection, which uses three kinds of milk – goat milk to soothe, coconut milk to condition, and milk protein to nourish. As a second cleanser, the Triple Milk Bar ($12) aims to draw out water-based debris before leaving the skin soft and hydrated. This is my favorite out of the set. It’s creamy and nourishing, it easily foams, and it cleanses the skin thoroughly without drying it.

Lilah B. Glisten + Glow™ Skin Illuminator

A close up the Glisten + Glow™ Skin Illuminator in Rose Bronze from Lilah B. As always, Lilah B knocks it out with a luxe pebble packaging that not only looks good, it’s also very sturdy.

This #highlighter aims to awaken and revitalize dull complexion using black currant seed oil extract, sunflower oil extract, carotenoids, plant sterols, fatty acids, and brown sea algae.

This is a very subtle highlighter. It’s more of a complexion enhancer for me. Unlike other highlighters, this cleanly provides a subtle glow to the high points of my face like the cupid’s bow and my nose (as seen in the photos of me using it). For someone with #oilyskin , it can be difficult to to find something like this – a highlighter that doesn’t make my skin look like an oiled grease pan after a few hours.

This has a very soft and creamy consistency so it’s easy to use. like using my fingers for a subtle sheen and a brush if I want a more precise and more defined highlight. The skin grabs the product easily and looks like it melts upon contact resulting in a natural-looking application.

The shade Rose Bronze is exactly as advertised. It’s a bronze highlighter with a pinkish undertone that works well for my medium brown skin. It gives off that summer glow that we all want to hold on to for as long as we can. I find that the shade complements medium to dark complexions as it makes the skin have that warm glow.

I Dew Care Plush Party Buttery Vitamin C Lip Mask

The Plush Party Buttery Vitamin C Lip Mask ($16) from I Dew Care contains cocoa butter, hibiscus flower extract, and vitamins c and e to moisturize, nourish, and condition the lips.

This does what it claims to do – it moisturizes and nourishes the lips after use. It has a thick texture like most lip masks and lasts through drinking that 3 am water we sometimes need. It feels as if it leaves a film on the lips that doesn’t budge until I brush my teeth. While using this, I haven’t encountered chapping or drying.

This lip mask is also cruelty-free and are formulated without parabens, phthalates, or silicones.

Primera Miracle Seed Essence

I have known about Primera when I first got into skincare. The brand uses seed and sprout extracts captured at the peak of potency to enhance the glow of the skin and provide it with nutrients, vitamins, and minerals.

One of their best-sellers is the Miracle Seed Essence ($58), which promises to smooth texture, improve tone, increase hydration, and help protect the skin from environmental stressors using lotus seeds. This has the texture and consistency of most essences but this has some weight to it. It sinks in quickly but immediately plumps the skin after use. It also feels hydrating and has kept my skin feeling soft. I have been using this every day and consider it as one of the most hydrating essences I’ve tried.

As expected, this essence offers extreme nourishment and moisture to the skin. They also do not use parabens, mineral oil, animal-derived ingredient, synthetic colorants, and artificial fragrances in their formulas so I believe this would also work to those with sensitive skin.
