Sensitive skin has problems upon problems, but few solutions exist.
Some of the "solutions" create even more problems.
Finally, a problem solver that stops all that.
The Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pure Oil-Free Skin Smoothing Face Primer For Sensitive Skin minimizes pores, mattifies, and erases fine lines and wrinkles, and it does all this without causing breakouts or oily t-zones.
This vegan-friendly sensitive formula is 100% oil-free and includes special soothing and mattifying ingredients so those with sensitive or oily skin get all the benefits of priming without the risk of congestion or irritation.
Evermat technology contained in this formula provides balancing benefits by regulating surplus oil production to the skin’s surface, minimizing shine, and helping to improve the skin’s overall texture. An innovative ingredient called Sepi-Calm, soothes inflamed skin and gently works to brighten complexion while reducing future pigmentation concerns. Plus, this lightweight formula virtually erases pores and imperfections.
Two Faced colorless, oil-free formula mattifies surface oil and minimizes redness from irritated skin while it erases the appearance of pores, fine lines and other imperfections.
As always with their primers, foundations and powders stay in place all day, colors stay true, and skin has a smooth and poreless finish. Apply it in the morning and this product will keep you set until you hit the pillow at night.
Glam Spot NJ's Lead artist Heather Polyi loves this primer.
She has never been able to enjoy the benefits of Primer, having oily, problematic skin... This primer is her personal favorite!

Ok... So my skin takes a beating in the summer! Between the sun and activities I need SOMETHING to wash away the stress!
As an Esthetician I am super picky with ingredients and skin care performance. I introduce:
This is the first medical-strength peel for at-home use, Advanced Home Actives' Brazilian. It contains glycolic acid and açai, a natural antioxidant straight from Brazil's Amazon rainforest.
The combination provides results similar to those from a professional chemical peel without the painful side effects.
The four-week regimen is clinically proven to smooth, firm, and brighten skin, while reducing the appearance of fine lines and restoring the skin's ability to build collagen.
Even more impressive: You'll pay hundreds of dollars less than what you would at a doctor's office.
The 3 piece set includes:
Brazilian Peel™ Smart Start Cleanser (2.5oz) - Balance, purify and refine your skin in just seconds with this gentle yet powerful daily refining cleanser that removes dirt and impurities while eliminating dryness, refining pores and maintaining natural skin pH.
Formulated with glycolic and citric acid along with natural açai and guarana seed extracts, the cleanser leaves skin hydrated, soft and glowing.
Brazilian Peel™ Micropeel Booster Pads (30 day supply) - These daily booster pads are infused with time-released glycolic and nourishing açai antioxidant protection. Used daily, they provide powerful exfoliation for smoother, firmer, brighter, younger-looking skin.
Brazilian Peel™ (4 weekly treatments) - This patented self-neutralizing, professional strength glycolic peel combines 30% glycolic and nourishing açai antioxidant protection. 5X stronger that other at-home peels, Brazilian Peel™ leaves skin smoother, firmer, clearer and brighter without irritation or redness, after just one weekly 10-minute application.
Award winning benefits in 3 steps!
You'll reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes and uneven skin tone.
Quench free radicals with acai and stimulates microcirculation with guarana seed extract, both natural potent actives from the Brazilian rain forest
Time released and self-neutralizing – turns itself off
Dermatologist tested to be safe, gentle and non-irritating, Increases effectiveness of moisturizers
*****formulated without Sulfates, Synthetic Dyes, Petrochemicals, Phthalates, or GMOs.
This is the Must Have Skincare choice for the summer!!!!!

Glam Spot NJ in addition to weddings and television, also works with Dance Designs for their recitals, one thing the artists NEED is COLOR.
The costumes can get pretty crazy and the choreographers want crazy makeup to match.
Bright, in-your-face colors that can be seen a mile away that look seriously hott. Or the word "haute". It all sounds like "haht". So, sorry, Milani, but your Haute Flash Full Coverage Shimmer Lip Gloss is actually "Haht" Flash, which sounds decidedly less awesome.
But we love this.
Haute Flash Lip Gloss gives full coverage, is highly pigmented, and provides an extra glossy shimmer finish.
The non-tacky, anti-feathering formula and flexible soft sponge applicator allows for easy application.
Apply with the wand’s soft tip applicator by starting in the center of your upper lip and work your way to the outer edges. Same technique applies for your bottom lip. W use alone for glitzy shine or over lipstick for a glamorous finish.
Insider tip: to extend the wear of your gloss trace over your natural lip line with a coordinating lip liner and fill in you lips before applying color. "Milani Cosmetics, family owned and operated, launched the brand in 2002 and has grown to become one of the leading brands of color cosmetics in the mass marketplace. The brand mirrors the nation’s growing diversity and genuinely appeals to a myriad of demographics. Today, women of all colors, ages and incomes, all over the world enjoy the affordable luxury of Milani Cosmetics."

We don't always remember to take care of our skin.
So when a surprise function comes up that our face isn't ready for, we need a quick fix fast.
From the Korean pharmacopeia, Erborian has selected in priority energizing and detoxifying herbs, to stimulate the metabolism and speed up microcirculation. The result is natural anti-fatigue and strong anti-aging properties.
Korean medicinal herbs have a double advantage; they are highly effective because they are pure and concentrated in actives, minerals, antioxidants, and they are very well tolerated because they are natural.
Traditionally, Korean people take it in the form of powder, pills, or ointment, according to the prescriptions of a traditional doctor.
Enter their quick fix that we are looking for.
The Erborian Sleeping BB Mask, according to Bliss, uses a formula of these age-old Korean medicinal herbs to give stressed skin a soft, velvety, flaw-free finish by morning.
The rich yet non-greasy formula hugs your skin while you sleep, simulating the effect of a spa wrap to hydrate, revitalize and erase signs of weariness. Gives a whole new meaning to the term ‘slept like a baby’.
Use it two or three times a week to revitalize over-stressed skin.

It's June and that means it's time for jet-setting off to wondrous places.
That also means we'll use the dreaded word "packing" more often.
At least our lips will look good with this awesome lip gloss!
Created by Turkish makeup artist Feride Uslu and German entrepreneurial master mind Jan Mihm in 2003, uslu airlines is a Berlin based luxury cosmetics brand.
Relying on the most advanced quality formulas, uslu airlines sets the current trends with a range of fantastic colors that is second to none.
Turns out these three-letter names for each tube are airport codes meant to conjure up images of far-off places and exotic locations.
Inspired by an amazing and ever growing line-up of sexy collaborators, including Parisian Designer Bernhard Willhelm, Swiss DJ Headman, Berlin sun glass mavens MYKITA, semi-legal street artist EMESS or good old American shoe maker NIKE, they all have explored new destinations with uslu airlines.
This lipgloss has sensitive pigmentation that allows for a very sheer, natural finish.
They have been formulated for superb hold and comfortable wear, plus anything that contains avocado oil catches our attention!

You find a department store mascara you love.
You wear it every day.
It runs out.
Your kidney hurts from the cost - again.
If only there was a way to refill without giving up your other kidney.
Oh but there is!
As with the Guerlain Rouge G Lip Stick, the Limited Edition Guerlain Noir G Mascara & Refill Set comes packed into its own little jewel case, complete with a mirror.
Sephora states: "If there were a dictionary devoted to beauty, listed under the word 'classic' you'd find Guerlain. This purveyor of luxury fragrance, makeup, and skincare has consistently defined—and redefined—our standards of beauty for over 175 years. Since 1828, Guerlain has guided us through a remarkable series of firsts, including industry standards like lipstick, eyeliner, mascara, and scientifically based skincare."
The first refillable mascara with an integrated mirror.
As a jewel-mascara, an exceptional formula is lying within this metallic case enriched with intense black pigments that gives volume, definition and care benefits.
Wrap its ingenious and handy brush around lashes above and below to achieve the stunning effect of a blow-dry.
When you buy this set, as opposed to buying the mascara and refill separately, you save a whole bunch to use for your third coffee run of the day just because you want to enjoy to warm weather.
Looking good and buying smart?
Gosh, you're a keeper!
