Probably one of the biggest perks of the job is getting to meet with some of our favorite brands and see products that aren’t even out yet! We’re big fans of Dr. Murad, and the skincare brand which is adding some new products to their powerhouse Resurgence collection! Thanks to their breakthrough Tri-Active technology, their new Retinol Youth Renewal products contain a fast-acting retinoid that accelerates anti-aging results by giving your cellular turnover a super boost. Allow me to decode: Basically its time released retinol that acts like a magnet to enhance your skin’s receptivity to the benefits of retinol.

There is nothing worse than checking yourself out in the mirror halfway through the day to see most of your make up has slid off, especially in the warmer weather. Here are some of current go tos!
Let me tell you, when you spend 20 days traveling through dust and sand, while being unable to drink much less brush your teeth with tap water, it takes some solid beauty products to keep everything in check. And considering I was basically on the line of the equator for most of my trip efficatious SPF products were a must. While I didn’t pack any hair products that knocked my socks off (now that I’m home I need to bathe in leave-in conditioners), I made some outstanding face, body, mouth choices — and here are the products that stood out:
