The other half of the Beauty Blogosphere, are the P.R. execs, who keep us on top of the latest launches and sometimes introduce us to products that are a bit out of the mainstream, but nonetheless wonderful.
A few weeks ago I received an email from Sircuit Cosmeceuticals, an L.A. based, all natural, "Green" skin care line that I was not familiar with. They asked me to look at their website and see if there were any products I might want to sample. Uh... SURE!!!
The first thing I noticed was that I loved the cheeky names and copy that accompanied the products, eg. Fixzit(blemish drying serum--duh)!, Day Care (protective day moisturizer) and Sircuit Weapon (10% vitamin C therapy serum). Adorable (and yes, I am available to write copy).
So many things to ponder and OH, as the mid-winter pasties have kicked in, didn't Sircuit Soleil, their firming mineral bronzer sound. dreamy??? At their suggestion, they would send me a mini sampler of their bestselling products called the 7 Essentials Collection, a complete morning and evening program with an exfoliator to be used 2-4 times per week. Brilliant!
Sircuit Cosmeceuticals has a techy scientific history. The products work at the "molecular level" based on Chiral Technology.
Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz... now where did that cheeky copywriter go??? I glazed past the sciencebabble and reviewed the rest of their brochure which turned out to be even more tempting than the website.
Cut to the chase...did the 7 Essentials Collection live up to its hype??? Absolutely! It smell delicious, cleans without stripping, moisturizes deeply but without heavy oils, is hypo-allergenic and good for all skin types. I can imagine these products gracing the bathroom's of Hollywood's A-List.
What was my favorite??? The 8th Essential. Sircuit very kindly included Sircuit Soleil, the firming self bronzer I was coveting. The label says, "If this doesn't "babe-ify" you I don't know what will"...best of all, it did!!! A beautiful, beachy, bronze. It smells like the islands and leaves a rich glow, unlike any other self bronzer I have tried.
In my little beauty world, it's the Eight Wonder of the World. What will be yours?
