This innovative SPF 30 mineral powder brushes on for a “barely there” feel. ($32, amazon.com)
“This is a no-excuses product. Some people say they won’t wear sunscreen becasue it feels greasy or it stings their eyes or because they don’t like the scent. This brush-on powder is invisible and odorless. It’s like you have nothing on. I would buy this to use on myself and my kids—it makes the sunscreen process painless.” –Katie Neitz, Articles Editor
Quickly swipe on some color with Susan Posnick Colorflo powder foundation ($68, SusanPosnick.com). It’s a mineral foundation in a self-dispensing brush with sun protection. Easy to use, flawless application.
You know the summer drill: Wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day and reapply every two hours for maximum effect. But with our makeup already in play and the daily grind underway, we tend to ignore these sun-safety facts until it’s too late (hello, sunburn!). Luckily, we found the ultimate sunscreen hack to solve all SPF struggles: It’s portable, non-greasy and entirely fuss-free.
Wear at any time of the day, this particular shade has a hint of that wine look, but yet still looks very natural because it self-adjusts to give you color to complement your lips’ natural shade — so cool! It’s hydrating too, with vitamins A and E, antioxidant-rich pomegranate extract, and olive oil. That means soft lips and long-wear that won’t feather or bleed.
At Susan Posnick Cosmetics, we love our lips. They are one of the most beautiful and distinctive features a woman has, so it is our responsibility to take good care of them. We could go on about our gorgeous Susan Posnick shades of lipstick, and the fantastic moisturizing and hydrating benefits our tubes hold, but good lip care starts even before that.
First, we hydrate. Water is oh so important to keep our lips soft and kissable, and as an added bonus, by drinking more water on a daily basis, your whole body will thank you!
Next, we exfoliate, as lips that tingle stay soft and smooth. Exfoliating your lips removes dead skin cells (yes, lips have them too!) and brightens up your natural lip color. This is easy to do every day by lightly brushing your lips with your toothbrush. For a deeper, feel-good exfoliation, use a lip scrub at least once a week. (See our monthly Posnick Pointer below for a fabulous, natural lip scrub recipe!)
Finally, we seal them with a kiss of our COLORESSENTIALLipstick; each shade represents an exciting city that inspires us to live beautifully!
In celebration of loving your lips, we have put together a beautiful Love Your Lips set just for this month. The set includes a COLORESSENTIAL Lipstick in the color of your choice, our universally flattering COLORDUO Lip Pencil in Nude/Rouge, and our Small Multi-Use Brush to apply your new colors. We are even including a free gift with purchase! Wear these beautiful shades alone or layer them for deeper tones.
Posnick Pointer: Keep your lips soft, supple and vibrant in color by exfoliating weekly! We like mixing together 1 tablespoon of sugar, some coconut oil and 1 drop of a favorite essential oil (peppermint and vanilla mixed is a personal favorite!) You can even add a dash of cinnamon for a natural plumping agent!
So what is gluten? It’s a protein found in wheat — spelt, durum, emmer, farina, faro, kamut, barley, rye and triticale.
There has been ample research and studies on the benefits of a gluten-free diet, regardless of your health issues. And for those who do have celiac or an intolerance consuming gluten, even inhaling it may cause serious health problems — from a skin reaction to stomach pains and hospitalization.
That’s where gluten-free cosmetics come into play. Even women with celiac may not think about whether or not their makeup products contain gluten. It is important to do so however, as using gluten-free makeup and skincare products is beneficial to their well-being.
SUSAN POSNICK Cosmetics is proud to be a gluten-free line of makeup. Sounds obvious? You’d be surprised as to how many skincare products and makeup lines contain traces of gluten.
One of our customers began using COLORCOATED Mascara after having terrible reactions to other mascaras containing gluten.
So if you’ve got sensitive skin already, the inflammatory nature of gluten can actually cause heightened sensitivity and redness.
You’re simply better off not having gluten in your skin care products — think of your cosmetics as kind of like shopping for your favorite gluten-free brownies!
