H20+-Bliss-Foaming-Face-Masks.jpgRecently we’ve come across more than one mask with some pretty intense foaming action. We’re sensing a trend—and it’s one we’re totally loving! Check out our two favorites.

H20+ Aquafirm Weekly Active Foam Mask
If your skin is really dehydrated, reach for this self-foaming mask, formulated with skin-firming marine microspheres, sea nutrient barrier and brown sea kelp. To apply, cleanse and exfoliate your skin and then massage into the skin, leaving on for about five minutes. When you rinse off, you’ll be amazed at how much softer and firmer your face looks and feels!

Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask
Before we came across this mask, we didn’t know great skin could be ours in just five minutes. As with the H20+ version, cleanse your skin and apply a few pumps of this onto your face. Let it work its foaming magic (with the help of Fluid 02 technology and Vitamin C), rinse off and voila: unbelievably clear and radiant skin, guaranteed.

CND-Cucumber-Heel-Therapy.jpgWe have a slightly embarrassing confession. In the summertime, in between pedicures, our feet turned into dry, cracked messes. We’re talking super unattractive and totally parched! Well, until we came across CND Cucumber Heel Therapy, that is.

Here’s the skinny. This moisturizer takes even the driest, most cracked of skin and turns it into a smooth, silky expanse in no time flat! The whipped consistency—formulated with sweet-smelling cucumber extract, chamomile and aloe—is utterly cooling and refreshing against the skin. And only a dime-sized amount is enough to cure your cracked heels, thanks to allantoin, urea and panthenol!

Not only that—it smells exactly like cucumbers! So refreshing and spa-like, we almost feel like we’re giving ourselves a pedicure every time we slather it on.

Seriously, with this little tub by our side, we’ve been able to extend the life of our pedicure by at least a week. Which, of course, means more money for buying hot sandals to show our tootsies off!

CND Cucumber Heel Therapy retails for $15 at
MAC-Wipes.jpgWant to remove makeup in a flash? Turn to M.A.C Wipes.

Seriously, these cleansing wipes are total genius. They remove makeup, dirt, grime, clean your pores, the whole nine yards! One swipe and your skin will look absolutely incredible in a matter of seconds.

We love that these wipes get rid of even the toughest to remove eye makeup and waterproof mascara. One wipe is even enough for both eyes!

We also love that they’re formulated with nourishing, moisturizing Vitamin E, so our skin looks and feels amazing after each use.

M.A.C Wipes are $18 for a package of 45 at
Face-Mists-Image.jpgNow that temperatures have reached the 90s, we’re fairly certain we’re close to dying of heat. Luckily, there are a host of face mists out there guaranteed to cool you down no matter how hot it gets. (They also have the benefit of refreshing, rejuvenating and revitalizing your skin!) Check out our favorites!

Benefit Ultra Radiance Facial Re-Hydrating Mist
We love the vintage-inspired packaging, and the fact that it contains stress-fighting ingredients like white and blue lotus extracts certainly doesn’t hurt!

Dr-Brandt-Pores-No-More-Vacuum-Cleaner-Blackhead-Extractor.jpgOkay, we know. This skincare product has one of the craziest names you’ve ever heard. Dr. Brandt Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner Blackhead Extractor is long, unwieldy and, we admit it, sounds pretty darn scary.

But here’s the thing. This product really and truly works. Just smooth onto your skin for five minutes, rinse off, and voila! No more blackheads. We promise.

This is due to alpha and beta hydroxy acids, silicone dioxide and eijitsu rose, which all work to loosen blackheads and absorb excess oil from your pores. This product also unclogs and tightens pores, AND it exfoliates the skin at the same time! What more could you ask for, right?

We will say this. After only a few uses, our skin looks amazing—especially the area on our nose which is usually cluttered with so many blackheads we look like we’ve got freckles. Thanks, Dr. Brandt!
