Colorescience is where beauty meets science, and they seem to complement each other very nicely here. Colorescience Mineral Makeup offers an array of protective beauty products complete with healthy benefits, permitting you to feel good about your make-up. Eva Longoria, Daisy Fuentes, Kylie Bax, and Drea D’Matteo are all fans of this smart line.
As we move into fall and winter, we often forget that the sun can still continue to harm our skin. Runners, skiers, bicyclists, and even people who simply stroll through the park need sun protection, and Colorescience has cleverly devised new ways to get it. The Sunforgettable SPF 30 Brush-On Powder is a 2005 Beauty Insider’s Choice Awards finalist for the CEW Beauty Awards. This powder is packaged in a tube with a pop-up brush, and consists of water resistant nanopowders that don’t rub off on clothes, absorb into the skin, clump, burn the eyes like ordinary sunscreen or emulsify. Now you don’t have to wait 20 minutes before diving in, you can jump in water immediately after applying this weightless sunscreen. A new generation of sun protection has been ushered in – embrace it! ($45).
Another innovative sunscreen option from Calorescience is Sunforgettable SPF 30 Rock & Roller, a sunscreen mineral powder with the same benefits as the brush on version, but applied with a full body roll-on applicator. Micronized titanium dioxide and zinc oxide for m the basis of the product, and it covers a large area of the body with ease and swiftness. Men like using this product as well, and actress Gwyneth Paltrow, Angela Bassett and Regina King keep their skin lovely with this sunscreen ($65).
The Suncanny Face Colore “blush brushes” offer the same mineral and protective benefits as the line’s powdery sunscreen but add a dash of your favorite color to your cheeks with names like Cheek-A-Boo and Blushing Bride ($40).
Calorescience also offers whimsical face fresheners that really work, and then work overtime. They tone the skin, hydrate and moisturize – and smell amazing while doing it. Be Still is Calorescience’s name for a face freshener with chamomile that has a soothing, settling effect, and Treasured Moments ideal for spraying an infusion of ylang-ylang and rose geranium, neroli and sandalwood when you need to feel invigorated ($15).
These and all of the other quality Calorescience products can be found at day spas, resorts, dermatologist and plastic surgeon offices, and at the studios of makeup artists. Also available by calling 1-866-4CALORE or by visiting www.colorescience.com.
