RéVive Fermitif Hand Renewal Cream + Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen

ReVive Fermitif Hand Renewal Cream + Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen on Belle Belle Beauty

My hand cream game seriously just got upgraded. This week at work, I cleaned out all the odds and ends and replaced my hand game with this MVP. So why is it so good? Let’s just start with luxury.

RéVive Fermitif Hand Renewal Cream + Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen is powered by a firming hand complex to smooth and strengthen skin. A brightening agent works against sun damage. And those long-term benefits are great.

But my favorite part is the very delicate rose scent – what is it with me loving rose all of a sudden? And the texture is long-lasting without being greasy or cloying. And of course, SPF 15 is an always important layer of protection. I reach for it each time I wash my hands because I love using it so – but the hydration does soak in a last all day.

5. Rodin Olio Lusso: Ever since I was tipped off to add a face oil over moisturizer to “seal in” moisture, I can’t bear to skip this step and I think my skin is more luminous than usual. This classic is the original face oil.

Five Late Summer Favorites

Five Late Summer Favorites // Belle Belle Beauty

So, today marks the official back to school here in my city. Time to face the music and start thinking about prep for those cooler months ahead. I’m focusing on stretching out this tan, staying safe in the sun, repairing sun damage and nourishing my dried out hair. Among other things! Here are five favorites that I keep reaching for to do just that:

RéVive ‘Sensitif’ Oil-Free Lotion SPF 15 is the most gentle SPF I have come across and the oil-free formula finishes matte and won’t clog pores. Plus, it works fabulously under makeup.

Kate Somerville ‘Somerville 360°’ Tan Maximizer is helping me milk this summer glow for all that it is worth. I love the smell and how nourishing it is on my skin. Natural oils add so much hydration that this might be my go-to lotion all year long!

Herbal Essences Body Envy Volumizing Shampoo basically transports me back to high school with its fruity scent (how appropriate this time of year!). But what really impressed me was the effect – I use this at night and sleep in a wet braid – the next morning I have full and bouncy waves!

Coola TotalBody Organic Moisturizing Suncare with SPF 30 is keeping me sun safe these last couple of pool days. The scents can’t be beat (my favorite is Plumeria). And I feel even better staying safe in the sun using an organic product.

Essie for the twill of it from their fall collection was high on my wish list. But now that I have it in (or on) my hot little hands I’m swooning so hard I almost fell over. The opaque shade is as nuanced and special as any luxury polish. Fall signature mani sold!


How I Stay Looking Rejuvinated

How I Stay Looking Rejuvinated // Belle Belle BeautyI’ve been particularly focused on looking rejuvenated lately. While I have been having the time of my life… I do acknowledge that I have just hit the 3-4 birthday. All in all, I have been pretty darn lucky avoiding those dreaded crow’s lines and under eye bags, but I know I need to step up my game if I want to keep it that way. Also, as a sufferer of hypothyroidism, my eyebrows can become a little….well, sparse…. around the outer corners. I am a huge believer in full brows adding a healthy and youthful appearance. Lastly, that bright, even and glowing skin keeps me looking fresh. So, these three winners from ReVive, NeuBrow and Tata Harper are keeping me in business:

NeuBrow by Skin Research Laboratories (of NeuLash fame) delivers that same potent serum that works so well on lashes, but this time to my weakened little brows (okay… they aren’t little or weak, but let’s keep it that way). The serum is powered with Dual-Weight Protein Complex™ and Keratin to nourish brows. Bioengineered polypeptides, a combo of amino acids works to improve shine and strength of existing brows. Biotin helps protect from further damage.

I’ve been focusing applying the formula to the outer ends of my brows twice a day for the past three weeks. And I’ll be darned, I am fuller, shinier and stronger. In fact, I am even finding myself having to tweeze more often. But I will take it!

ReVive Intensité Volumizing Eye Serum is one of those breakthrough products, powered by such cool technology, I just can’t resist touting it. ReVive is known for its Renewal Epidermal Science (RES technology) which works to rejuvnate and volumize delicate eye area. The skin filler works to fill in the “hollows” that can make us look so tired. I love the instant wide awake look this can give in the morning. And the nourishing formula heals and soothes that delicate and dry skin around my eyes.

Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask has become my go-to treatment when I need to spark up some dull skin. While it works great for those with blemish-prone skin, I’ve found it works well on my drier and hyperpigmented skin as well. Tata’s all-natural approach is loud and clear in this mask with Pomegranate Enzymes, Pink Clay, Willow Bark Extract, Which Hazel, Aloe Vera and Beet extract.

The Willow Bark brightens any dullness I have and adds a rosy blow. The Pink Clay helps clear pores. And you get a great dose of antioxidants, particularly helpful in the summer, with Which Hazel. Just apply and thick layer, wait 15 minutes and voila!


RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Cream Supreme

I was already hooked on the uber-popular RéVive Moisture Renewal Cream, but was thrilled when I heard the buzz that they were developing a more hydrating formula. Dry skin sufferers, get excited. This stuff needs to be on your list.

RéVive was founded by plastic surgeon, Dr. Gregory Bays Brown. I am instantly intrigued when a physician plays a part in developing a product because I believe a doctor’s mentality invites more proven results. RéVive is known for their proprietary RES Technology. The patented ingredients help increase the production of healthy looking skin cells, restoring and repairing damaged skin. Oh, and there is that little bit about it winning a Nobel-prize.

What makes this different from all the other rich hydrators out there is Glycolic Acid, which gently exfoliates, retexturizes and renews skin. After weeks of diligent use, my skin appears clear and even. Dry flakes have made a quick departure. And I do believe it brings an additional glow.

The moisturizing agents in RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Cream Supreme include: Glycoshingolipids, Sodium Hyaluronate, Shea Butter, Panthenol, and Sunflower Seed Oil.

A side note to retinol users: glycolic acid does not play nice with Retin-A or other retinol containing products. Also, avoid your Vitamin C goodies. I didn’t know this while testing, so I can assure you nothing horrible will happen to you if you slip up. But it isn’t advised.
