L’Oreal Hydra Genius is actually genius

L’Oreal Hydra Genius in Normal/Oily

My favorite skincare ingredient is hyaluronic acid. Found naturally in the human body, this acid can hold 1,000 times its weight in water and is the ultimate “plumper” in skincare. Hyaluronic acid is also the main ingredient in the skin injectable Juvederm. See where I’m going here?  If you want healthy, moisturized and plumped up skin, this product is a good place to start.

L’Oreal Hydra Genius comes in three versions;  Normal/Oily, Normal Dry and Extra Dry. The normals come in a tall bottle and are a lot like a serum. It sinks right into your skin and can be used anytime you need more moisture, even over some makeup. The extra dry product is thicker and comes in a jar.

I use in the am and pm, not too sure if it lasts for 72 hours because I put it on daily anyway!  It doesn’t irritate my skin or cause breakouts. A little goes a long way and it comes in a glass bottle with a dispensing top. It even looks pretty on your bathroom counter! One of the best things about it is the price. It retails (I may get a commission from this link) for $18.99 but you can always find manufacturer and store coupons. This week it is on sale at CVS for $13.99.  Sign up for Worth It Rewards and get 5 points for every dollar spent on L’Oreal products.

Brow Stylist Plumper by L’Oréal Paris – review

DSCN4032L’Oreal Paris has a new product that can be used to to fill in the brows and hold them in place. I tried the lightest shade ‘Light to Medium’ but it is also available in ‘Medium to Dark’ and ‘Clear’. I would recommend Medium to Dark for most people, I am blonde but the lighter shade was too light. It would probably work best for a blonde with very pale eyebrows. Or, you could always use your regular brow products and then seal it with the clear shade. This product seems to be smoother than traditional brow gels but it dries heavy. It other words, your brows will feel crunchy and they’ll stay that way until you remove it. DSCN4011 L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Plumper is priced at $8.99 and is available online at lorealparisusa.com. I have seen it occasionally in ULTA stores. Quick tip: When you buy L’Oréal Paris products at ULTA, make sure you go during the sales (buy one get one, etc.) and make to sure to bring manufacturer coupons to increase your savings. If you don’t a newspaper like me, you can look online or grab them from displays at drugstores.

L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Endless Pearl

 
 
I have been looking for  a replacement of my MAC Vanilla eye shadow when I came upon this one at the grocery store. I had a $2 off coupon, so this ended up costing about four dollars. It is supposed to last 24 hours, but didn’t wear it that long to find out. It has the consistency of a powder you accidentally got wet. It works well with or without eye primer and is very close to MAC vanilla. This was a great find. Unfortunately, they will probably discontinue the color.
 

 

 

 

 

 

Review: L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes

I am not a mascara fan. It always end up under my eyes, gets too goopy and is hard to take off. I love

L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes. It is NOT waterproof, but that is okay with me. It has an internal edge that removes excess mascara and the wand is very flexible and allows the bristles to get into your lashes. Your lashes appear thicker, longer and conditioned. The only strange thing is the scent, it reminds me of nasal spray. It runs about $7.99.
