On today's Twin Cities Live beauty segment, I shared with Steve and Elizabeth my picks for green beauty products worth a try and those, comparatively, worth a pass. It was a lot of fun - and a little surreal - to be back on set after taking some time away from the show. It honestly felt as though I hadn't been away for even a moment.
One of the floor producers took this picture for me and...I mean...doesn't it just kind of sum up everything wonderful about the show? Steve has clearly said something brilliant. Elizabeth is very impressed by his knowledge of green beauty. And I just think it's all pretty funny.
I'm scheduled to be on the show again July 1st and am currently brainstorming topic ideas. Anything in particular you'd like to see? Let me know in the comments.
To celebrate my return to Twin Cities Live after a hiatus (does two and half years count as a hiatus?), it only seems fitting to give away some of the products featured on today's segment. I talked about Han Skincare Cosmetics blush - both cream and powder formulas - because they're pigmented, easy to work with, the packaging is cute, the shade range is beautiful, and they're affordable.
From left to right: Lip & Cheek Tint in shades Rose Berry, Pink Peony, Coral Hibiscus and Cherry Cosmos; Pressed Blush in shades Bloom, Glory and Coral Candy.
How to Enter: (ENTRY PROCESS IS NOW CLOSED)
I recently finished up a few skincare products and realized each of them are constants in my daily routine. Derma-E Purifying Daily Detox Scrub is a creamy charcoal exfoliator that's gentle on my sensitive skin. It foams up just a bit and exfoliates without stripping my dry cheeks of moisture. I use this scrub most mornings to slough off any dryness, so makeup goes on nicely.
Andalou Naturals CannaCell Dream Night Cream is a recent-ish addition to my nighttime skincare routine. The cream is nice and thick, blends in quickly, leaves my skin feeling plump, and has a pleasant citrus scent. It saw me through the last 6 weeks of winter/spring (springter?) here in Minnesota and kept my face from feeling like a day-old bagel upon waking up in the morning. I bought a second tub to see how well it works in the more-humid summer months. I'll let you know how that goes.
Andalou Naturals Meyer Lemon + C Creamy Cleanser gets some action, day and night. It's my second cleanse in the evening, after a cleansing oil removes my makeup. This thick cleanser doesn't foam up at all, which takes a little getting used to (if you're used to foam; if not, carry on). It washes away any excess oil and smudges of mascara, while leaving my skin hydrated and happy. It has a very frontal citrus scent, which is to be expected given the whole "Meyer Lemon" thing in the name. I especially like that burst of citrus under my nose when I use this cleanser first thing in the morning - usually on days when I wake up feeling a little extra dry but don't want to exfoliate.
Do you switch up face wash seasonally, or do you stick with an old faithful year round?
