5 Face Serums You Need to Try Before The End of the Year

With cooler, dry weather often comes parched skin, particularly if you live in a state where it snows. Most of us change our moisturizer to fit the changing season. However, some of us may find that we're still in need of a little something extra. Using a face serum can really offer some great hydrating benefits, while giving skin the additional love it needs during fall and winter. If you've been on the quest to find one that suits your skins needs, check out some of our favorites.

1. Dr. Perricone's Chia Serum: Nourish and hydrate your skin with this luxurious, multi-tasking serum. Rare extracts of chia oil and fat soluble essential vitamins heck to transform dry, dull skin to a glowing, radiant complexion. This lightweight serum is good for all skin types and helps protect skin against moisture loss and free radical damage. Use it alone or cocktail with your favorite moisturizer for maximum results. You can also use this serum before applying your foundation for a beautiful, smooth finish. 

2. Dermalogica's Overnight Repair Serum: Part of Dermalogica's Age Smart line, this powerful peptide-infused serum is enriched with Argan and Rose Oils to hydrate and soothe your skin. Use nightly to stimulate cellular repair and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Wear it alone or mix it into  your favorite nighttime moisturizer for a firming boost that will leave your skin looking luminous and radiant. 

Get Glammed Up with Glamolash

Rodial Skincare's makeup range never ceases to impress us, so when they release new products, we are always excited to get our hands on it. Two new mascara products have been recently introduced and they are simply marvelous. Intense lashes are a going to be a beauty focus this fall, so if you're looking to make a statement, you have to try one of these two rich and creamy formulas. 

If you love a mascara wand that is simple and more traditional, you will love the GLAMOLASH mascara in SKINNY. Enhance your natural lashes with this soft-black mascara. The thin brush and soft bristles allow for an easy application, coating each lash evenly for beautiful length and thickness. This smaller wand also makes it easy for bottom lash application. The water-resistant formula makes it stay in place all day, but doesn't give you much hassle at night when you need to remove it.

If your lashes need a little pick-me-up, pump up the volume on your lashes with GLAMOLASH mascara in XXL. This extreme black mascara does't hold back at all. The textured brush design coats every lash for intense volume and thickening. Take a break from false lashes and use this mascara as a great alternative. For best results, make sure you wiggle the wand from the base of your lashes up. The creamy formulation keeps your mascara from drying up and clumping, so apply away!

Eye-Opening Tips and Tricks

Sometimes, keeping busy during the summer months cause us to neglect some of our much-needed rest. Whether you're a busy mom who's been trekking back and forth between summer camps or just a single gal who's been spending a little extra time with the girls, it's easy to lose out on some shut eye. Our eyes are always giving away how tired we are, but it doesn't mean you still can't look your best and trick those around you into believing you get 8 hours of sleep every night. Check out these eye-opening tricks to make you look rested and rejuvenated daily. 

1. Start with a good eye cream: Whether you're concerned with puffy eyes or dark circles, you have to use an eye cream to give your under eyes the much-needed hydration and love they deserve. Rodial's Dragon's Blood Eye Gel targets puffiness and dryness with Rose Water, Dragon's Blood and Arnica. Hyaluronic Acid helps restore hydration, helping soothe dry under eyes and smoothing out fine lines. This gel formula cools and soothes upon application, which is a great morning pick-me-up. 

2. Incorporate an under eye brightener: bareMinerals never disappoints with the Well-Rested Face and Eye Brightener. The sheer formula is lightweight, making it easy to blend underneath the eyes for instant radiance and luminosity. For a little color, try their Stroke of Light Eye Brightener. These awesome brighteners come in 3 shades and instantly diffuse darkness under eyes, while reducing dark circles and wrinkles over time. These are ideal for anyone who doesn't want a heavy concealer. 

Top 5 Self-Tanning Products for Summer

If you're ready to bring out your favorite summer dresses and sandals but need some serious tanning, take a look at our favorite picks for the season! From spray formulas to traditional lotions, Planet Beauty is here to help you find your perfect match. 

1. St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse: Get an instant bronze with this conditioning foam tanner. Infused with aloe, this easy-to-apply self-tanner is extremely lightweight, making every application quick and streak-free. Watch your arms and legs transform instantly without the bothersome scent of self-tanner. It dries in only a minute, so it's perfect for our beach babes on the go. This mousse is just one of many products available from St. Tropez, but it is always a favorite among Planet Beauty advisors. 

2. Rodial Brazilian Tan DARK: This gel formula gives you a beautiful, deep tan while moisturizing skin with shea butter. The caramel-infused formula gives you the perfect bronzed color and glow. Natural gardenia fragrance gives your skin a fresh summer scent so no one will suspect your tan is from a bottle. If you love Rodial, they also have a self-tanning spray we love.

Before you skip out on moisturizer...

Finding the right daytime moisturizer can be such a challenge sometimes, especially when your skin fluctuates between oily and not-so-oily on a daily basis. With the weather getting warmer, a lot of us our spending more time outdoors. Unfortunately, sometimes doing so can really affect your skin, especially if you wear foundation. There’s nothing worse than having a good makeup day melt off of you. Sure, you used that wonderful primer and light foundation. However, if the moisturizer you used in the morning was too heavy, you can find yourself looking quite greasy by 2 pm. 

If you consider your skin to be combination, Rodial’s Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Moisturizer SPF 15 not only hydrates skin, but provides your skin with chromabright and vitamin B3 for a beautiful, luminous finish. If you want your daytime moisturizer to provide even more anti-aging properties, then I highly suggest one of my personal favorites from Dr. Perricone. Face Finishing Moisturizer really transforms your skin with alpha lipoic acid, DMAE and Vitamin C Ester. Packed with antioxidant protection, this 2oz jar will help increase firmness while smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C Ester improves skin’s luminosity, providing the perfect canvas for makeup. 

Spring Break Essentials!

Ah, Spring Break. It's the sweet serenade right before Summer. There is nothing more joyful than having that break from midterms and papers and being able to enjoy a little getaway from reality. Before you get carried away with packing too many flip flops, take a look at some of our Spring Break essentials that you won't want to leave home without. After all, part of the fun in putting together an outfit for that bonfire or luau is creating a total look from head to toe. 

If you want that beautiful tanned glow without the damaging rays from the sun, then you have to take a look at Rodial's tanning products. Our favorite is their tanning spray, Airbrush. With 360 degree spray technology, you will get a beautiful all-over coverage with an immediate glow, as well as a gradual tan. Airbrush has a wonderful light aroma of coconut and gardenia, which will put you in a vacation state of mind almost instantly. This spray contains no added chemical colors and is formulated with moisturizing, soothing and anti-inflammatory ingredients like coconut oil, monoi and pomegranate. For those of you concerned of that unwanted orange tint, you have no need to worry. Even the fairest of gals can get a beautiful tan with this caramel-tinted spray. If you do plan on spending some time under the sun, pick up some Sun Bum and get your much-needed SPF.

BB Cream for Eyes to the Rescue!

Getting eight hours of sleep can seem like such a daunting task for many of us. Women are the ultimate doers, multi-tasking left and right. We juggle work, school, home and if we're lucky, a social life. While we're successful in the many roles we take on, sometimes it takes a toll on our well-being. Often times, our everyday stresses and habits start to show, particularly underneath our eyes.
I recently found myself feeling a little run down and it showed. My eyes seemed drier than normal and I had bags that didn't seem to go away. While it seemed tempting to slather on concealer, I knew wearing anything too heavy would only accentuate my problem. Luckily, there are products that not only conceal, but actually improve the look of your skin.
By now, I'm sure most of you have either heard of, tried, or currently use a BB cream. A lighter option for foundation, BB creams have taken off in the cosmetic industry. Since BB creams have been received so well with consumers, some companies now offer BB creams for eyes.
