On My Vanity | Excess Dermalogica
Oh where to start, where to start in this post today. Which new product by Dermalogica do I want to dive into first, okay let’s just do it let’s jump in with both feet! I have some very brilliant new products by one of my favorite skincare brands, Dermalogica. I always love to try out new things anytime, anyday I am thrilled to see the new IT products of the moment. So why don’t we go ahead and start with the priming sequence that will change your makeup base for the better…I mean BEST! Dermalogica’s Phyto Replenish Oil is already an essential light oil treatment meant to absorb in order to reinforce your skin’s protective barrier and keep your skin from aging therefor looking fresh as a little baby’s bum. You can obviously wear it alone as an oil treatment but my preferred method of use with phyto oil is to mix it in with Dermalogica’s esteemed hydrablur primer. By wearing the oil mixed into the primer you are giving yourself a seeming “glow from within” you know that glow that all the supermodels seem to have just sort of naturally well perhaps we are gaining tricks on to their secrets. The hydrablur primer already smoothes and essentially blurs the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, reduces pore size, mattifies skin’s appearance, you name it and it also contains extracts meant to enhance your skin’s natural radiance! So when blended with the phyto oil you get that dewy glow look you’ve dreamed of something like that of a Grecian nymph (fun fact, in Greek mythology Daphne was a nymph). Not to sound overly excited but even just writing out my thoughts and all the benefits of this new priming system I couldn’t help but get a little giddy. I mean read that back and tell me that you’re not overly excited too!
Now you may remember this post is called excess Dermalogica so no, we are not done there! But first I would like to take a moment to talk about how cute my little Dermalogica personalized mirror is……a moment of silence for all things monogrammed….okay, thank you. If you’re anything like me when something has your name on it in a cute little way it makes the experience all the more worth while, so thank you for indulging me for a moment. The second product I’ve been using lately from Dermalogica is their new Stress Positive eye lift. While I am very young I do consider myself quite the stressed out entity. It’s not even particularly that my life is rather stressful but more, as I like to call it, that I am “stress prone” which is a fun way of saying that I’m a worrier. Having a quality like this and my mother teaching me from a very very little age that it is never too early to start taking good care of your skin I am all for tending to my eye region before it becomes too late. I also, shock here, am not the best sleeper you might say I am a bit of an insomniac but these days who isn’t, so for a particularly rough night the de-puffing factor of the stress positive eye lift is an absolute MUST, especially with school starting back up for me in the fall this is going to be essential to my college survival. The stress positive eye lift helps to firm skin to generate a lifting effect, de-puffs, brightens the appearance of bright circles and I can honestly say that you can see an immediate difference while massaging the eye area with the applicator. Products like this are a dime a dozen, many claim to have these benefits but rarely can they actually follow through like this one.
