Summer Skincare Spotlight: Mila Moursi for Glass Skin That Glows

Mila Moursi skincare review
My current Mila Moursi routine. 
When navigating the vast and endless sea of skincare releases, consistency is key. Finding products that work and, consequently, sticking with them for the long term is a challenge for anyone, but especially for someone whose job is to test new launches and share her experiences. 

Since its stateside launch in back in 2015, Mila Moursi formulas have been a regular part of my skincare regimen (see past reviews HEREHERE, HERE and HERE) due to their brilliant ingredients and results-driven performance. In turn, I am excited to share the newest launch from the brand as well as tried and true favorites that collectively are contributing to my summer skin routine. 

Kindly scroll on for more details on my Mila Moursi favorites, how I use the products and what my results are as well as a special offer for BP readers and the Bottom Line...

From cleanser and toner to serum, specialized treatments and even SPF, Mila Moursi creates products that cater to a spectrum of skin types and concerns. Personally, I seek skincare that possesses potent anti-aging benefits while delivering a seriously glassy glow and some of my absolute favorites include the Cleansing Foam, pH Balancing Toner, Dual Action Serum and Broad Spectrum SPF 30.

Meet the Mila Moursi *Intensive Renewal Booster
In addition to the products mentioned above, I've started my summer by testing the newest member of the Mila Moursi family: the *Intensive Renewal Booster. Designed to dramatically transform the skin in 30 days, the set features formidable daily doses of Retinol and Vitamin C (alternated each evening) balanced by an ultra hydrating solution of Hyaluronic Acid to resurface and brighten skin while adding significant hydration. 

Sleep deprived from too many late nights of grading, writing and the like, my post-spring semester skin presented optimal candidacy for this rejuvenation! Here is a breakdown of my results:

Week #1: Eager to jumpstart the process, upon cleansing in the evening, I started with the Bio-Retinol first that week. The serum is lightweight and absorbs instantly; as is the case with all products containing Retinol, I made sure to avoid application near my eyes, nose and lips. The next morning, my skin felt extra smooth and had a touch of radiance (the initial stages of cell turnover in progress!). Upon washing, I gently applied the Hyaluronic Acid and loved the way it nourished and plumped up my skin. I followed with the Vitamin C serum the next evening and alternated for the six nights, giving my skin a chance to rest--as instructed--on the seventh day. 

Week #2: Entering the second week of the *Intensive Renewal Booster, I already began to note differences in my skin's texture and tone. Despite the potency of the Retinol, I didn't experience any obvious signs of dryness or peeling and I attribute the lack of these side effects to the daily dose of moisture, courtesy of the Hyaluronic Acid. What was present, however, was a pronounced level of smoothing and a reduction in dark spots and discoloration. 

Week #3: This was the week where results really began to compound! The two weeks of regular Retinol and Vitamin C doses began to reduce the look of pores and fine lines while encouraging an unmistakable, lit-from-within radiance that can only come from skin that's been reborn via enhanced cell turnover.   

Week #4 (in progress): The cumulative result of nearly a month of the *Intensive Renewal Booster has been brilliant. My skin looks smoother, brighter and healthier than it has in months and a natural glow--even sans makeup--is evident. I feel like the Booster adeptly jumpstarted my skin's end-of-the-school year recovery, leaving me with a rejuvenated canvas that's ready to take on the summer months ahead! 
Each day's quantity comes in a genius blister pack for portability and precise dosage.

Mila Moursi skincare review
Mila Moursi Cleansing FoampH Balancing TonerDual Action Serum and Broad Spectrum SPF 30.
// THE REST of my Regimen // In addition to the *Intensive Renewal Booster, I've been regularly using the following products:
  • Cleansing Foam: Extremely gentle yet effective, this cleansing foam removes every last trace of dirt and makeup without stripping the skin of its benevolent natural oils. I use it day and night to keep my skin exceptionally clean. 
  • pH Balancing Toner: This toner was the very first Mila Moursi product with which product I fell in love. In the 7+ years that I have diligently tested skincare for this blog, I've yet to encounter another product that is similar to this particular formula. After cleansing, I spray it onto a cotton pad to balance my normal-to-combination skin. It prepares my face for the skincare to come (making it more receptive) and smells uncommonly fresh and invigorating. 
  • Dual Action Serum: On days when I felt I needed more than the Hyaluronic Acid from the Intensive Renewal Booster, I added a pump of this anti-aging wonder to my skin. Weightless yet incredibly efficacious, this serum increases elasticity and skin volume (in the best possible way) while adding a replenishing layer of moisture.
  • Broad Spectrum SPF 30: Since my skin has been receiving regular doses of retinol (which, in any concentration, can cause sun sensitivity due to increased cell turnover), this anti-oxidant rich SPF has been a  trusty companion. Lightweight and blendable, the sunscreen smooths on and melts into the skin (it's actually a fabulous base/primer for foundation) while masterfully protecting it from harmful UVA and UVB rays. Consider it the perfect embodiment of sun care with skincare benefits! **Currently, Mila Moursi is giving away a full sized 50ml SPF 30 with every $350 purchase and a 3ml deluxe sample with each order.

The New Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Liquid Rouge Shine and Matte Lip Color + a Comprehensive Camping Look on Location in Big Sur, CA

Introducing the Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Liquid Rouge Shine and Matte lip color. 
A couple of weeks ago, I attended an event for Clé de Peau Beauté--one of my absolute favorite beauty brands--focused on the launch of the new Radiant Liquid Rouge lip color (currently available at Clé de Peau Beauté and soon to be available at Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus). 

If you've been a Beauty Professor reader (or follow me on Instagram) for any period of time, you may be familiar with my ardent love of the CdPB Radiant Liquid Rouge (especially shade #11) as I have run through many tubes since the formulas release in 2016. That being said, the lip color has been reformulated and now features both shine and matte finishes for endless possibilities. I am excited to share more details as well as swatches of all 16 shades in the images that follow and can't wait to watch this launch roll out to CdPB counters everywhere in the coming days! 

Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of the new CdPB Radiant Liquid Rouge Shine and Matte in action as well as a comprehensive on-location camping look and the Bottom Line...

With makeup artist Monika Blunder at the Clé de Peau Beauté event earlier this month at the Sunset Tower Hotel.

Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Liquid Rouge Shine
The Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Liquid Rouge Shine (currently available at Clé de Peau Beauté and soon to be available at Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus) comes in an opulent square glass tube with a doe-foot applicator; it is some of the most pigmented lip color available--especially for a formula with a gorgeous cellophane finish. 

The best way to describe this hybrid is to imagine a liquid lip color mixed with a gloss mixed with a stain; it's long lasting yet not terribly sticky and feels plush and hydrating for hours on end...there is truly nothing like it on the market! 

Shade Descriptions (per my experience):
  • 1 Sepia: Neutral pinky beige **worn in the images at the end of this post. 
  • 2 Sugar Jelly: Warm light peachy pink 
  • 3 Delicious Dream: Rose blush pink
  • 4 Tulip Fever: True bright pink
  • 5 Bird of Paradise: Papaya orange 
  • 6 Tangy: Vibrant coral pink 
  • 7 Red Current: Classic red
  • 8 Midnight Dew: Deep aubergine-meets-fuchsia **worn in the images at the end of this post.

The Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Liquid Rouge Matte
The Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Liquid Rouge Matte (currently available at Clé de Peau Beauté and soon to be available at Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus) has the same rich color payoff of the shine formula with a sueded matte finish that still offers a stunning sense of luminosity. 

Buttery smooth and nourishing, this matte is the antithesis of dry and flat. Instead, it adds volume and dimension to lips while covering them with a comfortable and weightless non-shimmery cream finish that wears evenly and persists all day! 

Shade Descriptions (per my experience):
  • 101 Cream Crush: Nude pink cream 
  • 102 Touch of Blossom: Neutral light pink 
  • 103 Nectar: Warm pinky coral **worn in the images at the end of this post.

The complete look. 
// THE COMPLETE LOOK // I was camping with my family last week up near Big Sur, CA  and, when the sun came out, couldn't resist shooting a full look at our campground. There's something very intriguing about juxtaposing outdoor gear with makeup, no?

Base and face. 
// BASE + FACE // When 
  • Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter #4 (reviewed HERE): Still my base/primer of choice, this gives my skin an "extra something," each and every time I use it. 
  • Giorgio Armani Power Fabric Foundation Balm #6 (reviewed HERE): I have hit pan (just a glint of silver at the bottom of the compact) with this favorite foundation formula and will be purchasing a backup soon; it's natural yet glowy coverage and lasting finish are deeply appreciated and I wish not to be without this. 
  • Sisley-Paris Eye Concealer #3: Skincare benefits and significant crease-free coverage in a single tube, this creamy concealer covers everything (dark circles, be gone!) while looking like nothing on the skin and, correct me if I'm wrong but that's precisely what we want a concealer to do, right?
  • *Sisley-Paris Photo Touche Sun Glow Bronzing Gel Powder (reviewed HERE): Upon first glance, this may seem like a traditional (albeit breathtakingly beautiful) powder but once the silky texture hits the skin, it morphs into a smooth gel-like veil of extremely flattering warmth. I use it so much that I am on my second compact...highly lauded across the Internet and oft-sold out, this bronzer is brilliant along the hollows of cheeks and the perimeters of the face. 
  • *Sisley-Paris L'Orchidee Highlighter Blush in Coral (reviewed HERE): I recently rediscovered this stunning blush and am ultra pleased with the natural peach glow it lends to the apples of my cheeks. The tri-layered powder features a melange of coordinating shades for a believable flush that makes skin look lit-from-within. 
  • *Westman Atelier Superloaded Tinted Higlighter in Peau de Peche (reviewed HERE): I patted a touch of this gorgeous and unique highlighter on the high points of my face and I always make sure to blend a touch in the center of my forehead for extra dimension. 
  • *Koh Gen Do Gloss Film Powder #123 (reviewed HERE): Just a touch in my t-zone to set everything for the entire day, this powder is a daily staple for me. 
Base and face swatches in direct sunlight. 
Eyes and lips. 
// EYES + LIPS // Warm rose tones, intense black accents and lips in three color families. 
  • *Nude Envie Eyeshadow in Desire (reviewed HERE): This rosy neutral is always in my arsenal and served as an easy base for the shadow to come. Seriously...get this and you'll wonder what you ever did without it. 
  • *SUQQU Designing Eye Palette #125: Brand new for summer, this LE quad features four silky shades reminiscent of a pink-toned tropical sunset. I like to use the apricot pink and candy pink shades all over my lids and blend the luminous quartz tone up to my brows (it's so incandescent that it almost has a wet look) The deep black shade takes everything to the next level and also doubles as a liner should you wish. As of post date, this palette is still in stock but I would act quickly if you love these hues as much as I do. 
  • *Givenchy Liner Disturbia (also available at Sephora): I am stunned by the formidable longevity of this liner; it purports 24-hour wear and I am apt to believe the claims. It glides on with precision and leaves behind a lush jet black line that doesn't smear, flake or migrate, even when eyes water (which mine were doing like crazy while camping). Very impressed! 
  • *SUQQU Eyelash Mascara 01 Black: Two coats of this fresh formula coats lashes in volume and length and the tubing effect ensures it will stay in place yet come off easily with remover. So good. 
  • *Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Liquid Rouge lip color in 103 Nectar, 108 Midnight Dew and 01 Sepia (currently available at Clé de Peau Beauté and soon to be available at Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus). I wanted to be able to show you a bright matte, a deep shine and a universal neutral in the images at the end of this post and chose these shades accordingly.

// STYLE NOTES // A dress while camping? It's 100% possible, especially when paired with easy sandals and a sweatshirt. 
  • Madewell Mens Crewneck Sweatshirt: I ordered this in a size medium earlier this month and have worn it no less than 8 times since then; it's soft and warm and undeniably classic. 
  • Floral slip dress: I love a good dress and sweatshirt situation in the summer as it's equal parts effortless and versatile. HERE
  • Brown flat sandals: As neutral as one can get, these comfortable flats work well with dresses and shorts alike and will be on my feet constantly over the next few months. 
  • Pearl barrette: This accessory instantly adds a bit of flair to one's hair...Somewhere Haute has an impressive array of options in this realm.

Bottom Line: I hope you enjoyed this first look at the glorious new *Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Liquid Rouge lip color in Shine and Matte finishes (currently available at Clé de Peau Beauté and soon to be available at Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus). The luxurious color payoff, hydrating texture and innovative finishes make this launch well worth the pursuit...this, my friends, a lip for all seasons. 

Which color and finish stood out to you? Do tell!  

Good things ahead, including a skincare-intensive, a look at some summertime makeup staples and a major life update. There is lots going on in late June and early July over here...cannot wait to share!

Smoothing, Firming and Taking Care of Business with NuBODY

The *NuBODY Skin Toning Device
Despite exercise and a healthy diet, trouble areas of the body often persist. From less-than-toned zones to bumpy areas bearing the dreaded signs of cellulite, we could all use some extra reinforcements at times. Enter the *NuBODY Skin Toning Device...this genius tool harnesses the power of microcurrent technology to smooth and firm with every single treatment. 

Kindly scroll on for more details, a quick video tutorial for how I like to use the device, a summary of my results so far and the Bottom Line...

Smooth skin to go, courtesy of the NuBODY Skin Toning Device carrying case. 

Excellent for home use and travel alike, the *NuBODY Skin Toning Device comes in a sleek yet protective carrying case that houses the device itself, along with a 10-oz bottle of the NuFace Hydrating Leave-on Gel Primer and a power adapter. I love it when every necessary element of a treatment regimen are housed in a portable and packable (the case is in my luggage as I type this!) state. 

Three times stronger than the traditional NuFACE Trinity and NuFACE Mini, the *NuBODY Skin Toning Device uses an elevated level of micro current designed to help tone and firm the dense areas of the body (arms, stomach, thighs and buttocks) without pain or discomfort. With prolonged use, the signs of cellulite (which result from a breakdown of connective tissue...virtually inevitable as we age) are diminished and skin appears smoother and more even. 
Four potent treatment spheres for increased results on challenging body . 
The skin on my thigh (note the slight texture and unevenness of tone) in the early stages of testing the  *NuBODY Skin Toning Device.
When embarking on a targeted plan with the *NuBODY Skin Toning Device, it is recommend that you focus on a single area of treatment (e.g., arms, abs, thighs--inner or outer--or buttocks) for the greatest result. In other words, channeling your energy into improving your greatest area of need will help to deliver calibrated results!

Personally, I have begun to notice slackness and slight texture (early stages of cellulite?) on my upper and inner thighs so treating this particular area first was an easy decision. 

// MINI TUTORIAL //

Using the *NuBODY Skin Toning Device is exceptionally easy, even for this perpetually tired mama with two full time jobs! 

Typically following my daily shower, I:

(1) Apply the Leave-on Gel Primer on my upper and inner thighs...this process is great post-shower because there are no clothes with which to contend. During a call with NuFACE Co-Founder Tera Valdez, I learned that applying the primer liberally will reduce any potential sensations of the micro current which, consequently, enhances overall results. Currently, you can get 2 free 10oz Gel Primers (a $96 value) with any NuBODY purchase (through 6/30/19). 

(2) Turn on the device and begin sweeping the spheres in an upward direction, applying moderate pressure so that the microcurrent and transmit into the dermis; this motion produces zero discomfort and actually feels like a light massage. The NuBODY will automatically turn off after five minutes. I then repeat the process with the other thigh. 

(3) Rub any of the remaining primer into the skin for extra hydration and additional skincare benefits. 

I am six days into my 10-day trial with the *NuBODY Skin Toning Device and am already noticing results. The skin on my upper inner thighs appears smoother and more taut; this observation is making me excited to continue to calibrate results over the course of an entire month of usage and, thus far, cinches the device as a perfect companion to exercise (for me, squats galore) and a sensible diet. 

Upon applying the primer on your target area, turn the NuBODY device on and place the treatment spheres on the skin. 
Glide the NuBODY spheres along the skin with moderate pressure. 
Move the spheres in an upward motion. 
Embracing the NuBODY 10-day testing period with anticipation and excitement and will be keeping my eye out for smoother and firmer skin in the process!

Bottom Line: In my experience, the *NuBODY Skin Toning Device is an excellent and befitting option for those seeking to "fine tune" areas that appear to be immune to efforts in the diet and exercise realms. 

There is absolutely nothing wrong with cellulite--for many of us, it's simply gender based and even genetic--but having a device that can help to mitigate its appearance is a welcome addition to my routine! 

I hope you found this review helpful and would love to know which area the body gives you the most vexation and what you do to combat it...do tell.

Good things ahead, including a fresh everyday summer makeup look, a new video tutorial and host of recent beauty launches. Cannot wait to share!
