I am all about the latest and greatest in beauty especially when it comes to innovative beauty. I am talking beauty products and tools that deliver results, do something different, and stand out from the rest.
Over the last few months I have been testing a lot of new beauty products that could fit into this category but not all delivered results or were really innovative. Out of everything that I tried, a few of these fit the bill and really stood out from the rest.
The following 8 beauty products not only stood out from the rest, these 8 beauty innovations were different and delivered positive results.
I have been a big fan and user of Clarisonic smart devices pretty much since their inception. One of the newest is the Mia Smart device. This one takes it to the next level with a new brush AND app that lets me customize my own skin care program. I just LOVE the Luxe set because it includes the Mia Smart device, one facial cleansing brush head, two firming applicators and a makeup brush head. I like the Firming Massage Head for firming and lifting; the Sonic Awakening Eye Massager firms and depuffs around the eyes and it’s pretty addicting.
I am all about lasers especially when they are as effective as the NIRA Skincare Laser. Used to target the crow’s feet, or fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, this laser is designed to work in just two minutes a day. It has worked wonders around my eyes, and I am noticing a reduction in the fine lines around my eyes and I’ve only been using this FDA cleared device for about six weeks. It is a patented, medical grade device that uses the same technology that dermatologists use. Consistent use is most definitely key, but it doesn’t really hurt and as I said, it takes such very little time each day to see results.
My hair has been thinning around my temples over the last few years and I am constantly looking for natural solutions to this issue. I do take supplements that I feel help, but I also started using this Volumizing Hair Serum. I am a fan of the brands’ VegaLASH formula, so I knew I wanted to try this which takes that same proprietary natural plant based formula and amps it up to help fight hair thinning. The innovative formula includes phyto-actives known to inhibit DHT production which in turn extends the hair growth phase. What does that mean? Well, it helps to protect and strengthen the roots to bring thicker, fuller hair to fruition, and I think I am noticing it working. I only use a few sprays to each area of scalp when I wash and I am not seeing as much scalp as I did when I started using. I will be re-ordering!
So…… let’s talk sensitive skin chafing for a second. I get it. It’s a sticking and sensitive subject. But it happens. And it is uncomfortable. This Anti-Chafe Stick not only creates a barrier to reduce friction and chafing on sensitive skin, but the formula helps to hydrate and moisturize those very same sensitive areas that it is protecting. It’s a win-win and a must-have, especially in the summer.
I am pretty good at shaping and tweezing my brows, but have difficulty with removing the super fine hairs in between my brows. That uni-brow space is so delicate and hard to deal with. Enter this handy kit that comes with waxing strips that heat up with the warmth of my hands; they are SO easy to use. They get right where I need them to. The kit even includes a mini pair of tweezers and a packet of after-wax cream. so my mid-brows are now super smooth and hair free.
I have been wanting to try the Multi-function Nourishing Moisturizer forever, and now that it is readily available in the US with its very own USA site, I am thrilled to be able to buy it whenever I need. This moisturizer is so creamy and soothing and is the perfect night-time moisturizer to use whenever skin is feeling like it needs some extra attention. Post-sun, post-sport, skiing, water, laser, peels — you name it! I am obsessed with this moisturizer and have been using it a few times a week for extra nourishment.
As I wear eyelash extensions pretty regularly, I am constantly trying lash boost serums to help keep my lash in their best possible condition. I have really been liking this nutrient-rich formula that gives my lashes much more than lash conditioning. neuLASH is fortified with Active Eyelash Technology® to dramatically improve the weak appearance of eyelashes. The formula includes Hyaluronic Acid, a proprietary combination of amino acids, bioengineered peptides, Biotin, Panthenol and Pumpkin seed extract.
This may be the strangest looking brush that you’ve ever seen, but this brush literally does all the work out of applying contour or bronzer and highlighter easily and effortlessly. With one swipe of the brush, you get the most beautiful contoured look. While I don’t regularly use highlighter, I do use it to shape and define my face with contour by applying a matte bronzer with this brush; it gets into all the right places and defines the perfect angles.
