H2O plus

Summer and winter are the two most extreme seasons – the weather is at its hottest or coldest and beauty regimens must be edited and managed accordingly.  Now that temperatures are reaching the 90s and beyond, it is essential to help yourself stay cool while still looking polished and put together.  Seems almost an oxymoron, I know, but I have found a handful of  Beauty Products to Help you Beat the Heat, stay cool, feel refreshed and  look beautiful despite the rising temperatures.

Cooling Beauty Products For the Face

urban decay chill makeup setting sprayUrban Decay Chill Makeup Setting Spray – The first place most people will notice the extreme heat effects is on the face – mainly their makeup.  Makeup is harder to wear, it doesn’t last all day and it cannot withstand the blazing hot sun when out and about.  The best solution is to introduce a makeup setting spray to apply each morning to help prevent makeup meltdown.  This particular one from Urban Decay has become my summer must have because of the light refreshing feeling it gives when I spray it over my makeup after I have finished in the morning.  I find that my makeup stays looking fresher longer and even works great mid day for a quick pick-me-up.  Hold 6-8 inches away and spray lightly over the entire face.  Eyeshadow, foundation, blush – all last longer for me when I use this spray.

Available for $27.00 at Sephora.

Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel MasquePeter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Masque – Even though temps are high and everyone’s skin seems oilier than ever, dehydration is often just as much a problem during the summer months as it is during the winter ones.  Using a masque once to twice a week to help restore moisture and calm skin is one answer to combating this issue.  This cucumber gel masque has saved me this summer after too many hours in the sun or just as a refresher to give my skin a moisture boost.  I like to keep mine in the refrigerator for an added boost of cool – and as a bonus, this masque can be used under the eyes to reduce puffiness.

Available for $45 at Sephora.

H2O+ oasis mistH2O+ Oasis Mist – This oil-free hydrating mist is the perfect on-the-go refresher for when you’re in need of a quick dose of hydration.  Perfect for at the beach, after the gym or an afternoon in the park, this energizing mist instantly revives and soothes the skin, as well as provide instant hydration and energy to the skin. It also gives great antioxidant protection against the elements.

Available for $17.00 at Ulta.

Cooling Beauty Products for the Body

Bliss Super Minty Soap n'ScrubBliss Super Minty Soap n’Scrub – Though this is a summer beauty post, I love this body scrub all year round.  The fresh peppermint scent will open up your senses, and then the cooling sensation will invigorate the body during your morning shower.  It truly is the best wake up remedy that you will actually look forward to.

Available  $32.00 at Blissworld.

Elemis Instant Refreshing GelElemis Spa at Home Instant Refreshing Gel – I have nick-named this product – stress relief in a bottle.  This multi-functional, instant revitalizing gel is the answer to tired legs and muscle tension.  After I walk home from work each night, I find my feet and legs are so swollen from the heat that they actually begin to ache.  As soon as I get through the door and kick off my shoes, this is the first thing I do when I sit down.  I massage all over my legs and feet and find it helps to soothe and reduce any swelling from the heat.  With ingredients such a Camphor, Menthol and Witch Hazel, the refreshing gel gives instant and immediate relief.

Available for $52 at timetospa.com.

 Jason Aloe Vera Gel

JASON Aloe Vera 98% Gel – I don’t think it is officially summer until you have spent too much time out in the sun and wearing a bathrobe is the only thing your skin can tolerate when you get home.  Not advised but yet often inevitable, if this does happen, using a product to immediately soothe and heal the skin is the best solution.  The JASON Aloe Vera 98% Gel formula is concentrated yet non-oily, so it is easy to apply all over.  It will quickly soothe any dry, irritated or red skin immediately with Allantoin and Vitamin B5.

Available for $13.45 at Drugstore.com.

With all the hustle and bustle of everyday life, we are constantly in search of things to help us simplify, be more efficient, save time, etc.  Doesn’t this apply to our beauty routine as well?  It sure does!  As impatient consumers, we want products that deliver fantastic results, address more concerns and work in a minimal amount of time.  We don’t have time to wait to be beautiful!  As a leader in the science of marine skincare, H2O plus recently launched their newest product, Total Source Night Cream, a product that aims to be an all-in-one age defying cream. I recently had the opportunity to stop by their Madison Avenue store to experience the new cream and familiarize myself with the brand. 

After a recent unveiling of their new brand image, H2O plus is focused on “vitamin-rich marine-based ingredients” to power their formulations. With a new logo and tag-line “the science of marine skincare”, and new differentiated product categories, customers are able to find an entire range of products to address specific concerns, such as oil free hydration, anti-aging, sensitive skin and acne.  With such an extensive range, it is nice to be able to pull it all together at night and simplify with one product like Total Source Night Cream.

As one who is guilty of overzealous skincare routines both morning and night, I was happy to shelve some of my lotions and potions and try just one product, Total Source Night Cream.  The texture was the first thing to stand out to me, as it is a lightweight gel texture that disappears immediately into the skin leaving it feeling refreshed, hydrated and supple to the touch.  Formulated with such key ingredients as chestnut rose extract, Japanese seaweed extract and yarrow extract, Total Source Night Cream improves hydration, brightness, firmness and elasticity.  Already after the first few days, my skin felt smoother and well hydrated, with no evidence of irritation or break outs.  After approximately 2 weeks, I noticed a brighter tone to my skin sans makeup, with much less redness overall.  Results like these make Total Source Night Cream a win in my eyes — and has earned a spot in my nightly skincare routine.

To find Total Source Night Cream ($95.00) and other H2O products, visit their website at www.h20plus.com
