This Dead Sea mud mask will make your skin
so soft and smooth!

Ciao everyone! Today was my last day here at Cosmoprof Bologna–can’t believe my time in Italy is almost over! I saw so many interesting new skin care launches today. I’m going to have the best complexion ever!

My first amazing skin care find was from an Israeli company called -417 Dead Sea Cosmetics. This anti-aging line features mud taken from -417 meters (or 1368 feet) below the Dead Sea. Two stand-out products for the line included the Recovery Mud Mask and the Instant Wrinkle Filler. The mask is made up completely of Dead Sea mud and is removed from the skin by an included magnet–no need to wash. It leaves your skin feeling silky smooth and soft. The Instant Wrinkle Filler is like spackle for your crow’s feet–smooth it over wrinkles and its collagen and natural silicone formula instantly hides wrinkles. It’s unfortunately not a long term effect–it only lasts until you wipe it off–but it truly does visibly erase those wrinkles.

Estelle & Thild is a beautiful Swedish skin care line that counts everyone’s favorite makeup artist, Carmindy, as a fan. The adorable line uses organic and natural ingredients and features three different formulas–sensitive skin, age prevent and normal skin. The creams feel so luxurious, absorbed quickly and made my skin feel so soft all day long.

The gorgeous fragrance layering set from The Lab Room.

My absolute favorite new brand of the day is a Spanish company called The Lab Room. Started in 2004 by Monica Ceño Elie-Joseph as an extension of her posh salon, the luxe line features candles, perfumes, hair care and skin care products that are very covetable. Superstar stylist Orlando Pito is a fan, so much so that he stocks the products in his New York salon Orlo. I fell in love with a Magnolia and Lime scented body cream that left my skin silky smooth, and with the seven-piece layerable fragrance collection. DIY chic! Currently Orlo is the only US retailer, but you can also buy products on The Lab Room website.
