Fresh Face for Spring: Essence Beauty Box Edition

I am not a big make-up, beauty girl because I suck at applying makeup but I do love it when I see beautiful makeup applied on gorgeous skin. At 40, I realize that my skin needs better care more now than ever. Yes, at 40 your skin can be prone do dryness or oiliness and pimples. My skin changes from day to day and it is harder to look “fresh faced” when I wake up in the morning. I love a good foundation but I don’t want to be a slave to it. I want to be able to have healthy skin that can go without foundation. I know, I may be asking for too much. LOL. This month’s (May’s) Essence Beauty Box had two gems that I have really been in love with. The face wash from Equitance paired with the light face oil from Biossance are BOMB.

The Beauty Box Stars:

The Equitance Face Wash: Goes on creamy but lathers and feels amazingly soft and leaves skin silky smooth.

The Biossance Face Oil: Light face oil that absorbs easily into the skin and leaves your face fresh, luminous and radiant enough to go without foundation.

Let me also add that these are small sample sized products from the box but a little goes a long way. I’ve been using these two for a little over a week now and still have enough product for another week.

In reality, this is really an All-Star box. Oh wait, I’m missing a great shiny lipgloss that I gifted to my 11-year old daughter. She loves lipgloss. She is also fascinated and in love with the Poo-Pourri. (Insert weird emoji face). It really does work and leaves a great sandlewood scent in the bathroom. I’ll be getting more of this stuff again. Also great lose with the Simple face wipes and a great Pur mascara. May was a good month.

What is your skin care regimen for healthy skin?

There is always a time and place for a beat face but there is nothing greater than a fresh-faced beauty. Great skin is necessary for a fresh face. It is the foundation for a beat face after all. Here are some of our favorite fresh-faced beauties.

Beyonce aka Yonce is beyond styled in fabulous blonde hair pieces and face done for the Gods when she is working but during her downtime she isn’t afraid to let us see some gorgeous skin.

Beyonce recently shared this close up face picture of herself on Instagram.

Lupita! How much do I love thee? Let me count the ways. She glows inside and out when we see her on the red carpet but she recently shared that she feels the most beautiful with a bare face. Well, we agree.

We love Lupita's acting chops, red carpet style and great skin.

June Ambrose. This Rock Mom and Super Stylist to the Stars is uber chic and has a fun sense of style herself. Her face and hair are always flawless but she often shares the key to her fabulosity. Her “Stylefit” foods, exercise and great skin care keeps her face looking fab.

June Ambrose often shares pictures of her and her little ones.

You cannot leave Jennifer Lopez out of this list if we are talking beautiful skin. Does she ever age? JLo looks just as great as she did 20 years ago. She is a mother of twins now and still working hard but looks fabulous doing she.

Caught by surprise by this picture but there is no surprise as to why she is so gorgeous.

What is the key to great skin? The key is to treat it gently and take care of it before you really need to. Don’t wait for the blemishes and fine lines to appear before you start a regimen. Visit an aesthetician and treat yourself to a facial at least twice a year. You are worth it.
