As my way of saying Thank You to all of you who read, share, and comment here, I’ve arranged some fun giveaways over the next couple of weeks. And here’s the first of my pre-holiday giveaways: a Skin Firming & Radiance Beauty Box, containing three of the products shown above.
My friend Brian is a talented hair and makeup artist. He’s done lots of celebrity and red carpet work, and teaches his techniques in his Makeover Workshop classes. He’s also developed a skincare and beauty line, recently re-branded as Brian + MW. We got together last week to create a video to demonstrate some of the products he’s kindly offered for me to share with you.
Brian recently gave me some samples of the Super Radiance Exfoliating Freshener and Re-Recreation Skin Firming Serum to try. I’ve been using both for a few weeks, and will be making them a part of my regular regimen.
Cruelty-Free, Paraben-Free Skincare Products
All of the products listed are cruelty-free and paraben-free.
The Exfoliating Freshener is a lightly acidic toner that clarifies the skin, and also allows other products to absorb more thoroughly. (After applying, I also rub into my hands and have noticed an improvement in texture there too!) You may notice a slight tingling, but it’s very gentle and non-irritating.
I apply the firming serum immediately afterward, while my face is still damp from the toner. I do notice a slight tightening sensation upon application, and according to Brian the effects are cumulative over time. The serum contains peptides, to stimulate production of collagen and improve elasticity.
I’ve been using the Firming Neck & Throat Creme for a couple of years now, and love it. My neck will never be smooth (I had creases even at a very young age) but this product does firm the skin and reduces the puckery appearance. I’ve tried a lot of neck firming products, but this was the first one that really made a noticeable difference for me.
The Super All-Day Moisture Creme is a really nice daily moisturizer that feels rich but not greasy. What I like is that it absorbs well and lasts, but doesn’t leave a tacky feeling on the skin.
We finished up with the Tinted Primer (Light is my shade), another of my Brian + MW faves. You can use this alone or underneath foundation. I wear this on its own for sheer coverage that provides extra SPF. Never looks cakey.
The Skin Firming & Radiance Beauty Box
For this giveaway, Brian has put together a special Skin Firming & Radiance Beauty Box featuring three products from the video above:
