My 2019 “Best In Beauty” List

My 2019 “Best In Beauty” List

With new cleansers, creams, masks, and moisturizers coming out daily, the competition is fierce. And as you know, skincare results aren’t instantaneous. It can take weeks and even months to decipher whether a moisturizer is actually strengthening your skin barrier. Or whether that vitamin C serum really does diminish dark spots.

So, in the spirit of year-end roundups, here are my favorite beauty products of 2019 that I have reached for consistently.

Bioeffect’s Innovative Skincare – Part 1

Back in June, I had the pleasure of attending Bioeffect’s Summer Skincare Soiree. During this beautiful rooftop cocktail event, I was introduced to Bioeffect’s EGF Serum and eye patches.

This past October, I attended their holiday preview event. And I was thrilled to meet the co-founder, learn more about their product line and hear about the brand’s plans for 2020.

Bioeffect was founded by three Icelandic scientists who discovered a means of bioengineering a replica of human Epidermal Growth Factors (EGF) from barley.

Savor Beauty’s Brightening Beauty Oil & Line Diminishing Oil

Savor Beauty’s Brightening Beauty Oil & Line Diminishing Oil

Face oils, in general, help retain skin’s moisture while protecting it from environmental damage. I personally love them because they provide a natural-looking glow all while helping my skin feel smoother, softer, and more resilient (especially when cold or drier climates disturb my skin). So, I was excited when I received the opportunity to try out two oils from Savor Beauty, a Korean – inspired skincare brand with skincare products free of parabens, formaldehyde, synthetic fragrances, phthalates, and sulfates.

Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin™ Liquid

I have been using Dr. Jart’s Ceramidin Liquid off-and-on for over two years. With the extremely cold weather, my skin is in dire need of moisture and hydration. As you know, I have eczema so my face (and my body) gets dry but the winter weather exacerbates it.

My Initial Thoughts on Biologique Recherche’s P50V 1970

I’ve heard about this french toner/tonic/lotion from every skincare fanatic. With a mixture of AHAs and BHAs, this product claims to balance the skin’s pH, protect and strengthen the epidermis, and hydrate and exfoliate dead skin cells and impurities.

But, after seeing this pop-up in various blogs with glowing reviews, I decided to try it out for myself.
