Heir Atelier Ultimate Make Up Prep

Skincare has gotten so complicated if we follow all the prescribed steps. Cleanse, tone, treat, moisturize, sunblock, prime. What if there was a product that eliminated half these steps? Well, it has arrived with Heir Atelier’s Ultimate Make Up Prep Facial Serum. You can choose to skip your serum, your moisturizer and your primer with this ingenious multi-tasker. Loaded with peptides to stimulate collagen production, Vitamin C & E to protect, Licorice Root to brighten, Squalene & Jojoba Oils to nourish and hydrate. All that and it’s paraben and silicone free.

Celebrity Make Up Artist Kendra Richards created a beyond elegant serum that disappears right into the skin. Pores and fine lines seem to fade, the skin looks brighter and more radiant, and makeup looks fresh all day! I was so impressed by the dream foundation it creates for make up application. It made my make up look more natural and yet flawless. And it photographs beautifully! It’s no wonder Heir Atelier has found a home in the makeup trailers of TV shows like 666 Park Avenue and The New Normal.

And the packaging is beautifully thought-out! An airless pump dispenser that twists down to safely lock for travel. No explosion of precious product all over your favorite silk top. And there’s more! The price. $38 for an all in one, vitamin and peptide filled serum/moisturizer/primer! And if you are at all dissatisfied with the serum once you’ve tried it, Heir Atelier will accept your return and refund your money! What a risk free way to try something new.  But I have a feeling you won’t be retuning it. It’s amazing!

Sunday Riley Good Genes

Expensive sinkcare can be so hard to justify, but Sunday Riley has put  a miracle worker in a bottle with Good Genes. It is no wonder it.  At heart, it is an exfoliating lactic acid treatment serum, best used at night. And what a powerhouse it is!! Discoloration and scars will fade. Lines will lighten. Texture will soften. Redness will subside. Complexion will brighten. Skin will look restored, refreshed, and luminous. It may sound to good to be true but I can’t find enough praise for the aptly named Good Genes!

A lot of exfoliating serums/creams, like glycolics, retinols, can be overly aggressive, leaving skin looking tired. Not with Good Genes! My skin has never looked stronger and more resilient, while feeling softer and more radiant!

My favorite way to use it as suggested by Sunday Riley is 5 days in row for a boost. Then I put it aside until I need another pick me up. I’ve always loved keeping my skin on its toes by not letting it get desensitized to amazing ingredients. Having this in rotation works like a charm. And thanks to not using it daily, one bottle can last a year!

Another great way to use Good Genes is applied generously as a mask for a quick immediate boost.

Barney’s and Space.NK counters at Bloomingdales provide generous samples. Go grab some and see for yourself. You skin will fall in love! Good Genes is one of those rare products that is worth every penny!
