Made for women with sensitive skin in mind, creator Jesse Werner, who is on the same boat, started Whish Beauty to help women with the same needs and desires in skincare. After experiencing and trying skincare products from all over, he hit the jackpot when he discovered a rich European cream with his name written all over it. When his wife fell into the same predicament of wanting skincare products that produced a clean shave and left her skin feeling refreshed, Werner went on a mission to create products that achieved just that and more. What began as a collection of impeccable shaving creams branched out into a skincare collection focused on whole body needs. Whish products contain no harsh chemicals and instead include only organic ingredients for a natural production. In celebration of the 2015 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, Whish launched the Soda Fountain Collection, which included luxurious bath and body gels and body butters available in scrumptious flavors like Ginger Melon, Black Cherry, Orange Creme, and Key Lime. Each product creates the scene of being in an old-fashioned ice cream parlor with a bottle of pop in hand. Mmm! These vintage soda fountain flavors will leave your skin feeling smooth and revitalized all day long! You can get your hands on this wonderful skin care line at www.whishbody.com or at www.nordstrom.com and in Nordstrom stores nationwide. Stay in the know with this delectable brand via their social networks, including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Tag @WhishBeauty as well in any posts to showcase their amazing products!
LORAC creator Carol Shaw conquered the beauty world with her own beauty brain when she began to notice that there was a demand for products that made women feel like themselves but enhanced their natural beauty as well. LORAC, or “Carol” spelled backwards, has grown over the years and is known for their easy-to-use-products that often fall into anyone’s makeup bag when they comes across the collection. The treatment-based makeup within this brand takes quality into a whole other level; it includes skin rejuvenators, plant extracts, emollients, conditioners, and more ingredients that makes one’s skin still feel impeccable underneath. LORAC’s new Fall 15’ collection presents nothing less than just that while offering way more for us in our makeup collections this season, such as the brand’s first contour palette, the PRO Contour Palette, and a sequel from their best-selling PRO Mascara, the PRO Plus Fiber Mascara. Each new product within the collection brings something we all are missing and needing in our beauty lives. I’m most excited about LORAC’s new eyeshadow palettes that are “serving so much face” in all of their shades, including the PRO Matte Eye Shadow Palette and the Limited Edition PRO Metal Eye Shadow Palette. Talk about so many eye shadow looks you can create while following upcoming fall beauty trends (or even start thinking up designs for Halloween)!
