That and more in The Lipstick League, week of 7.23.18
Question of the Week: What “super ingredient” in skincare are you most intrigued by?
Answer: My favorite pizza topping has been showing up in my favorite skincare lines! Yep, mushroom skincare is a thing, and I’m ALL in. I’ve got two products on heavy rotation right now with ‘shrooms in their ingredient list.
Dr. Andrew Weil For Origins Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion ($34, 6.7 oz) is a K-Beauty-like essence meets toner that contains THREE types of mushrooms (hence the Mega). It hydrates and calm skin, so my rosacea prone skin is loving it.
Ren Evercalm Ultra Comforting Rescue Mask ($38, 1.7 oz) is like a soothing bandaid for irritated skin, whether it’s redness, inflammation or just plain ol’ itchys. 10 minutes with this white mushroom infused mask, and your skin says “ahhhh.”
