Happy Wednesday everyone! A big warm sunny hello from beautiful Los Angeles!
I’m here in LA to celebrate the new 2018 Clé de Peau Beauté spring collection. Inspired by the vibrant beauty of precious gemstones, this collection embraces jewel-like luminosity and pearlescent luster. And you can see these radiant properties in the way the lip glosses shimmer and how the highlighter reflects light. My favorite lip gloss colors are Charm, a tender rose color, and Warm Crystal, a soft beige color. And the Luminizing Face Enhancer highlighting powder is exquisite! I was afraid that the color 17/Lavender, a mix of lavender, light green and beige pink would not be compatible with my skin tone, and boy, was I wrong! It blends beautifully delivering a natural shimmer. For a healthy glow, I apply a small amount on the top of my cheeks and bridge of my nose.
I’ve been a long time fan of Clé de Peau Beauté (they’re the #1 luxury beauty brand in Japan) and couldn’t wait to experience their new Firming Serum Supreme. And seriously, this face serum is magic! I was blown away. The first night that I used it, I woke up with glowing baby soft skin. I kept on touching my face! The texture of my skin was super smooth, soft, and “bouncy”. It’s hard for me to describe, but my skin felt firm and lifted. I get so excited for my morning and night skincare routine because of this serum!

Before we end this post, I want to share a funny story with you. One of my 2017 and 2018 goals was and still is to work on my skin. To focus on products that truly work to improve the overall texture and skin tone, so that when I go make-up free I can still feel confident.
Just a little background, my skin has a mind of its own. It’s normal/oily, acne-prone, and very sensitive. And it doesn’t discriminate. From drugstore to luxury brands… if it doesn’t like a product, it tells (actually yells at) me right away. A few weeks ago, I tried a new night cream and woke up with a bad rash. There were little red bumps all over my face and my face was burning. That lasted for three days. As you can see, I’m extremely careful when it comes to skincare/beauty products.
Anyways, going back to make-up free… I do this about twice a week. But I spend most of that time inside. At home. With my cats. The real test is to actually go outside. And outside I go! Heading to the airport (to LA and back home to NYC), I didn’t have a lick of makeup on. After washing my face, I applied my essence, one pump of the Clé de Peau Beauté Firming Serum Supreme and a small amount of the La Creme (which I only use at night) all over my face and neck. Touching down at JKF airport, the flight attendant walked by me and said… you have such glowing skin! I burst out, rapidly firing… thank you! thank you! thank you! and that went on way after she left my seat. I just felt so happy that my focus is showing real results.
