Some @NeoStrataSkin #Beauty Products to put on your radar! #BBloggers

When summer hits the last thing I want to wear is foundation, yet I often have to. BB and CC Creams are great, but they provide super light coverage and if you have acne scarring and discoloration you want a bit more coverage, but you don't want it to feel like you are plastering your face with cake. In summer the worst feeling is when foundation or sunscreen get into your eyes and makes them sting because you are sweating.

I had the chance to try out a few products from NeoStrata and I wanted to share my experience with them with you.

For day to day errands or for casual outings, BB or CC Cream is just fine, but for certain events especially in the evening I like full coverage, and I had actually made the switch to powder foundations years ago so I thought it would be a challenge for me to go back to liquid foundation again, but I was definitely pleasantly surprised by the Exuviance Skin Caring Foundation with SPF 15 (the color I used is called 'Desert Sand').

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Ophthalmologist tested medical makeup that provides coverage of skin imperfections such as age spots, acne scars, dark under-eye circles and blemishes

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Fragrance and Paba Free

My Take:

I love the Foundation and the Finishing Powder, but sadly the Concealer really didn't work well for me, I'm wondering if it is because the shade I received was Beige instead of Sand like the rest of the products were? But I find that the concealer actually doesn't conceal for me, just lighten the color where it's applied so even applying it first and letting sink it in and then putting the foundation over it didn't work. 

The foundation can be easily applied with your fingers just like a BB or CC cream and it gives you a medium coverage and evens out your skintone the way foundation should. It's easy to apply and when combined with the Finishing Powder it's a perfect combination! I have to say this is one my favorite Finishing Powders by far! It even helps keep me from sweating through the way a Pore Minimizer would for me, so it gives me extra benefits and less product to achieve it, SCORE!

These should definitely be on your radar for summer and beyond! A foundation that goes on easy like a liquid and dries with the feel of a powder, lightweight feel on your skin, good coverage and an SPF, YES PLEASE! And it's matching finishing powder which you can apply with the sponge included or your own brush is the perfect finishing touch.

If you have tried NeoStrata, share with us what product is your personal favorite (or which one you would most like to try)?

Ascending Butterfly Holidays Buying Guide 2010, Ninth Giveaway sponsored by:

What better gift than the gift of rejuvenated, younger eyes? I know right! This is how to 'stuff' a stocking. Beauty products have always been a personal fave as a stocking stuffer pick with me and my besties. And I'm sure that will never change!

When I was in my twenties, I was a die hard skeptic about the value of eye cream. I just didn't believe in the claims that any of them made. I am pretty much genetically pre-disposed to dark circles. My dad had them, I have them. I thought for many years that the battle of the dark under-eye circles was always going to be a losing one. Much like the battle of the frizz, but that my friends is a story for a different post.

Aside from the dark circles, my eyes have been taking a beating this holiday season. To meet deadlines, I've been working much longer hours and spreading myself pretty thin. The first place this shows up on me is my eyes. And that does not make me happy. I have beautiful eyes, I say it un-abashedly as they are my favorite feature. They are a beautiful Hazel color with perfect flecks of Gold, the happier I am, the greener they look. As pretty as they are, they don't look good with dark circles under them.

Because this has been a year of 'pro-activity' (OK, writers license, that may not be a real word) I have been actively trying to address things that bother me. And this under-eye circle thing, has quite frankly been bothering me. I am no longer a teen, and late nights definitely show!

Thankfully, the blogging Gods were listening, and I was contacted to try to an under-eye cream. I will admit, my inner skeptic skoffed at the idea. But my racoon eyes embraced the idea and forced me to immediately break open the package and get started.

I will tell you I have seen marked improvement using Exuviance. And I went into it very doubtful. I do notice on mornings when I am in a rush and skip out on using it, people notice, because I always get the dreaded 'Do you have a cold?' or 'Did you get enough Sleep Last Night?'

The Perk, when I use it consistently I always get more compliments on what they should notice, my eye COLOR! :)

Thankfully no crows feet or fine lines to contend with yet, but I figure getting into the habit of using eye cream will help me prevent them! I do have some un-even pigmentation on the upper eyes, and have noticed more even pigment on the upper eye as well as the lower eye using Exuviance Age Reverse Eye Contour. As I already know I am NOT going to be happy when I run out of this, you know that means I definitely recommend it!
