A staple in my makeup bag basically forever, Clé de Peau Beauté concealer is highly editorialized and continues to win major awards year after year.  Both creamy and light reflecting, this cover up fixes everything; banishing under eye circles like a dream and obliterating blemishes in a flash, without leaving any trace of it’s hard work behind.  Just clear beautiful skin.

According to the company, this beauty stick is enhanced with Revitalizing Moisture Complex to lock in moisture and smooth out texture.  It blends sublimely to expertly conceal dark circles, spots and imperfections.  In addition, High-performance powders ensure flawless skin in any light, providing maximum coverage with a smooth, even finish that does not crease.

From my perspective, this makeup artist fave is your secret weapon to perfection.  I use it after or instead of foundation to banish dark circles (don’t blend right up to your lash line… it will make you look puffy), a touch blended down my nose and on my brow bone for a natural highlight, and to make any unsightly redness disappear in two shakes of a lambs tail.  Keep it in your purse at all times for quick touch ups.

Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer may be a bit pricey but one stick will last you a very long time.  And, I promise, you’re worth it.

Skinceuticals AOX + Eye Gel

The secret is out!  Finally available in Canada (at Gee Beauty amongst others),  Skinceuticals AOX + Eye Gel is my beauty secret that packs a huge punch in a tiny little pump.  This Triple antioxidant treatment to combat photo aging and signs of fatigue- brightens, lifts and firms with effects that are obvious even after the first use!


You already know how brightening and firming Vitamin C serum is for your face (if you forgot, refer to my blogpost on Phloriten CF), and now that same miracle is available for the baby-sensitive eye area.  Now that summer’s over and our non-stop lives are in full swing again… trust me, you need this!

Skinceuticals says:

This breakthrough serum-in-a-gel contains a synergistic antioxidant combination to help protect the delicate eye area from oxidative stress, while targeted actives revive under-eye skin and reduce the appearance of puffiness.  Powerful ingredients prevent signs of aging; corrects signs of photo damage; helps reduce the appearance of puffiness; and combats signs of fatigue to restore a fresh, vibrant appearance.

I have been using this product for over a year when it was only available in the States, and I can personally attest to all these benefits.  Pick up this dream eye gel and say goodbye to that unsightly under-eye luggage and those pesky lines and wrinkles for good.  One pump is enough for use on both eyes.  Use mornings, by patting gently around clean eye area and refrigerate for that added ‘wake-me-up’ bonus effect.  May be layered with any eye cream of your choice for added moisture.
