L'Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream

BB Creams have been all the rage recently, and I love trying new stuff whenever I get the chance. So I was super excited when the folks over at SheSpeaks invited me to try the new L’Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream.

I’m already a huge fan of L’Oréal and usually wear L’Oreal Visible Lift Serum Absolute liquid foundation. I’ve also been a loyal user of their Feria hair color for years. L’Oréal people, if you are reading this, please don’t ever stop making #58…and put the other lady’s picture back on the box! 

What L’Oréal Paris says about Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream: This product gives the sheer coverage needed to create a natural bare skin finish, while delivering built-in skincare benefits. With four beautifying actions, this all-in-one innovation primes and smoothes, perfects to hide flaws, hydrates all-day, and corrects and evens skin. The product is infused with skincare ingredients like Panthenol, Vitamin E and Glycerin for 24-hour moisturization.

To apply, simply dot on and blend with fingertips. Self-adjusting beads will instantly transform and blend to your skin tone.

What I say about it: First, it makes a good primer and definitely helps make enlarged pores look less noticeable. Goes on smoothly, and didn’t cause my skin to break out. It did a pretty good job at automatically matching my skin tone, but didn’t provide enough coverage to wear alone. It might for someone with less imperfections…I apply it and then use concealer and mineral makeup powder over it to reduce the shine and add more coverage.

PMD: Professional Microdermabrasion Beauty Treatments At Home!

PMD

Let’s talk skin! Like many pet parents I spend lots of time outdoors and often spend more time and money caring for Daisy’s grooming needs than I do my own.  The lack of attention I’ve been paying to my skin is starting to really show!

We live where it’s warm and sunny all year and though I’ve tried to be good about the sunscreen, my skin is showing definite signs of sun damage and dark spots. I’ve always struggled with enlarged pores and now that I’m getting older, I’m also seeing lots of fine lines and random rough patches popping up. I’ve got a few old acne scars I’d like to get rid of, too.

Most of you know me well enough by now, to know that I’m always on the hunt for effective, affordable solutions for both pets AND their people. I’ve been testing out the PMD, Personal Microderm Device, for about 3 weeks now and am super excited to let you in on the secret. For about the price of one spa facial or visit to a cosmetic dermatologist, you can give yourself weekly skin rejuvenation and anti-aging treatments at home!

PMD microderm device

What is PMD?

PMD is an at-home microdermal exfoliation system that uses the same aluminum oxide crystals found in the equipment at your doctor’s office, salons and fancy spas. It’s designed to  help improve your skin texture and appearance in two ways: The aluminum oxide crystals embedded into the exfoliating discs work to resurface the stratum corneum skin layer (that’s the one that can make skin look dull and old), plus the PMD uses vacuum suction to stimulate blood flow and bring collagen to the surface. Both of these actions help your skin care products to penetrate deeper into the skin so you use less and they are more effective, too!

Why I Like It:

Most of us don’t have time and money to make frequent visits to the spa or cosmetic dermatologist. Even if you have health insurance, anti-aging and microderm treatments aren’t covered and can be expensive since you usually need repeated visits to see results. With the PMD, you buy it once, own it for life and use it  every 6-7 days on your own schedule. I’ve only been using it for 3 weeks but I am already seeing and feeling smoother skin, and am starting to see a brighter, more even skin tone too. Here’s more reasons I’m a fan of this beauty tool:
