Dolce & Gabbana Perfect Matte Liquid Foundation and Perfect Matte Concealer

Everyone wants flawless skin and to help women achieve that, Dolce & Gabbana launched two new products: Perfect Matte Liquid Foundation and Perfect Matte Concealer. The breakthrough formula features the innovative Matte Adapt Complex that self-corrects signs of imperfections to uphold an impeccable complexion. The special formula with SPF 20 stays perfect all day long.

The spectrum of Perfect Matte Liquid Foundation’s 15 pale to dark shades offers a soft, natural looking matte coverage with long-lasting benefits. Perfect Matte Concealer comes in 6 shades to cover every skin tone and seamlessly complement the foundation.

Kiehl’s Skin Rescuer Stress-Minimizing Daily Hydrator

According to Cynthia Ackrill, MD and Fellow of The American Institute of Stress, “Stress is responsible for 70-90% of doctors’ visits—it contributes to and can even mimic all serious diseases. Its effects are particularly harsh on the skin, causing premature aging and advancing the symptoms of every common skin condition from sensitive skin, to eczema and psoriasis, rosacea, and chronic dry skin.”

As I mentioned before I love Kiehl’s products and think they’re really effective, they introduced a new product, Kiehl’s Skin Rescuer Stress-Minimizing Daily Hydrator recently and it sounds pretty promising. Utilizing highly efficient ingredients Mannose and Rosa Gallica, this facial formula helps address and reduce skin’s visible response to stress. Kiehl’s Skin Rescuer actively works to minimize the visible signs of stress with key ingredients that limit the release of stress signals and promote a healthy, strong skin barrier. This result is that skin becomes less vulnerable to the signs of stress.

Available at for $40.
