IT Cosmetics Anti Aging Armour Review

IT Cosmetics Anti Aging Armour Review

press-sampleI first received IT Cosmetics Anti Aging Armour as part of a collection sent to me to announce the launch of IT Cosmetics at Sephora.  This product has since become one of my all-time favorite IT Cosmetics products, so I wanted to be sure to circle back and tell you more.  IT Cosmetics Anti Aging Armour is the ultimate multi-tasking sunblock.  It’s a broad-spectrum SPF50 block, that just to happens to be almost exactly the color of my skin.  Many SPF blocks can leave a pasty white film on the skin, but not this!  It delivers a medium-toned neutral shade at the same time it moisturizes and protects your skin!

I do have to tell you, however, that I informally polled my beauty blogging friends from fair to dark and they disagree with the assertion that this product works on every skin tone.  I will say that it’s basically a perfect match for my light to medium skin and evens my skintone like a champ.  Many days I even skip the foundation, this product is that good!  Want to know if the color would work for you?  I’d say give it a try if you wear light or medium IT Cosmetics foundation or CC cream.

Retail price is $38 per 1 oz. bottle. This cruelty-free product is also free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.

To purchase, you can CLICK HERE to shop ITCosmetics.com.  Other retailers include Sephora, Ulta, and QVC.

Things I Buy From Sephora Over And Over

press-sampleI have fallen a bit behind with blogging, and while I’m working on bringing in some more new fall and holiday items for you to check out, I decided to post about some of my tried-and-true favorites when I’m shopping at Sephora. Some of these items I’ve received as press samples in the past, but I’ve replenished them over, and over, and over again!

Things I buy from Sephora over and over

Rather than feature what’s NEW in the beauty industry, I decided to feature some of my tried-and-true favorite products that I’ve purchased over and over again at Sephora. Some of these started off as press samples, but at this point I assure you I’ve spent a pretty penny of my own money on replenishment, because they were that awesome!

1) Klorane Shampoo With Mango Butter is ideal for my very dry hair, and the formula doesn’t irritate my scalp the way some shampoos do! I even pack some to bring with me on vacations. (Retail price $20)

2) Klorane Conditioning Balm With Mango Butter is the perfect match for the shampoo above, and leaves hair feeling super soft, healthy, and tangle-free! (Retail price $16)

3) Make Up For Ever Kohl Pencil delivers a soft, smoky look. I originally sampled them in a MEGA holiday value set (that I wish the brand would offer again–fingers crossed) and have replenished them many times over! I love these pencils in every color! (Retail price $18)

4) Algenist Repairing Tint & Radiance Moisturizer SPF 30 is one of my favorite multi-tasking foundations. This medium-coverage tinted moisturizer delivers a dewy finish, anti-aging ingredients, and sun protection at the same time! (Retail price $42)

5) Bobbi Brown Corrector is my long-time favorite under eye concealer. The slightly orange hue cancels out blue undereye circles like a champ. (Retail price $27)

6) Lancôme Definicils Waterproof Mascara delivers natural-looking long lashes that pass my “waterslide test” with flying colors. (Retail price $27.50)

7) Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette was originally a holiday offering, but this trio of complexion perfecting powders was such a hit, it’s been available ever since! I’ve purchased refills for myself, and have even given this as a gift I love it so much. (Retail price $62)

8) Philosophy Purity Made Simple is my go-to cleanser/makeup remover that’s a great balance between performance and price. Skin is left feeling clean and balanced. (Retail price $24 for 8 oz)

9) Peter Thomas Roth Instant Mineral is the perfect touch-up for those who need to reapply SPF before heading out in the afternoon. I’ve been buying this for so many years, I’ve lost count! (Retail price $30)

10) Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover is another product that delivers great performance for a steal. This formula easily removes even waterproof eye makeup, and costs much less than similar products. (Retail price $11)

11) Clinique Broad Spectrum SPF50 Sunscreen wears beautifully under makeup, doesn’t look pasty white, and protects the skin so well! I’ve tried dozens of high-end sunblocks, but this is my favorite among them to wear under makeup, or stand-alone. (Retail price $23)

12) NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer became an instant favorite the first time I used it. This product delivers more coverage than the average tinted moisturizer, but still looks natural and “barely-there”. It’s ideal for daytime wear, or for a day at the beach! (Retail price $44)

13) Kate Somerville Exfolikate Body might be intended for all-over body use, but I also use this physical/chemical scrub on my t-zone to clear and refine pores. (Retail price $65)

These items can all be purchased from Sephora.com and many other beauty retailers. To read my individual reviews on each, click the hyperlinks above!

Some of the products mentioned above have been received as press samples in the past, but all have been re-purchased by me with my own money. Please click HERE to read my full disclosure.

Paula’s Choice Calm Redness Relief Kit

 

press-samplesponsoredIf you’re a regular reader of Raging Rouge, you know that I’m a fan of Paula’s Choice Skincare. I first wrote about the brand when I tested the Paula’s Choice Rosacea Kit last summer. It was such a great fit for my skin, I restocked the entire lineup before I even ran out.  The PRIMP discount was just too good to pass up!

Well now I’m here to tell you about a brand-new skincare lineup for those of you with irritated, sensitive skin. Paula’s Choice just launched “Calm“, a redness relief skincare lineup. The products are available for two skin types–normal to dry skin, or nomal to oily skin–and are specially formulated to help calm your enraged skin.  Before I go any further, let me tell you that you can CLICK THIS LINK to score 20% off and free shipping at Paula’s Choice!  Click the link and the promo will be auto-added to your cart!  Easy as can be!

This new Paula’s Choice skincare routine comes in a sleek-looking silver box.  Six skincare items are neatly tucked inside.  You know I always appreciate good presentation, like this packaging!

Inside are 6 separate skincare items.  The overall routine is 5 steps, but different moisturizers are included for AM and PM use.

This collection is fragrance-free, and contains known skin-soothing plant extracts like Willow Herb, Sea Whip, and Licorice.  The goal?  A reduction in inflammation, and soothing tight irritated skin!  My skin has been loving this routine so far.  While there is no “cure” for rosacea, my skin does look slightly less irritated since I’ve started using it.  More important is the fact that is just FEELS better!

The routine is easy to follow.  Start off with the Redness Relief Cleanser, then follow with the Redness Relief Toner.  After cleansing, apply the Redness Relief 1% BHA Lotion Exfoliant (this is a leave-on exfoliant).  Then apply the serum and finish with the SPF 30 Mineral Moisturizer for daytime, or the Redness Relief Moisturizer for evening.  I’m such a fan of the Mineral Moisturizer!  It’s truly a top-notch suncare product, and finding sunblock that doesn’t irritate my skin is a tricky business!

HOT NEWS! One person will win an entire Paula’s Choice skincare regime valued at over $200. This giveaway is open to US / Canadian residents only and ends 2/29 at midnight EST.
