I’m a little bit nutty about taking care of my skin – it’s one of those things that you have to be incredibly proactive about (as in, start early in life!) It will make a difference if you start to baby your skin early on in life – not only because it becomes an engrained habit, but because you have protected it so well from nature’s aggressors over time.
I’ve always like L’Oreal as a brand – not so much because it is an absolute monster of a company, but because that as a giant in the industry, it has the resources to do solid research and testing – great R&D results in products that actually DO what they say they will…and all the L’Oreal products I have tried, have delivered.
Their L’Oreal drugstore line is on the moderate to higher end where pricing is concerned, but it also won’t break the bank (La Mer, anyone) so it makes loving your skin less damaging to your wallet.
The newest items, coming this Summer, include a variety of masks – always a fun way to de-stress, and pamper your epidermis. There will be three formulations available:
- Exfoliate & Refine Pores – 3 Pure Clays + Red Algae
- Purify & Mattify – 3 Pure Clays + Eucalyptus
- Detox & Brighten – 3 Pure Clays + Charcoal
- Kaolinite (to cleanse & exfoliate)
- Montmorillonite (absorb oil)
- Rhassoul (rich in minerals to condition & hydrate)
