Not all of the skincare products in this story are new, but all of them deliver what they promise: to protect and hydrate. You’ll FALL For These Skincare Products from Guinot, Viking Beauty Secrets, Brevena, MyChelle, and SkinAuthority.
Time To Tone Up Your Skin:
Guinot Clean Logic is the company’s newest line for fragile and mature skin.
It gently but thoroughly cleanses and removes make-up without disturbing the acid mantle of your skin. Then it can protect and hydrate your skin, and leave it ready for the application of other skincare products.
The Guinot Clean Logic Toner is a gentle, anti-aging toner that is Paraben and Soap-free.
Trace elements like papaya and jojoba oil eliminate dead skin. Longevitine: firms the skin and helps to keep skin looking younger. Shea Oil restructures the lipid barrier. Hydrocyte Complex with hyaluronic acid, hydrates.
I liked the creamy texture and the way it made my skin feel softer. Use a cotton pad and see gunk disappear off your face while it refines your pores.
The Guinot Clean Logic Toner is meant to be used with Guinot Clean Logic Cleansing Care cream. However, you can use it after your own favorite cleanser (if it’s not already by Guinot).

Day and Night, Night and Day you are the One…
So Goes the song popularized by Frank Sinatra with lyrics by Cole Porter
The Perfect Pair by Brevena, is a set with a Daily Hydration Moisturizer and a Restore & Hydrate Overnight Cream. Key ingredients include Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C and a Macro B Complex (with oat beta-glucan to help soothe skin).
The Daily Hydration Moisturizer is chock full of hydration and leaves skin soft and radiant but without being greasy. The Restore & Hydrate Overnight Cream is richer as you might expect.
This anti-aging moisturizer has Brevena’s Macro B Complex®, hyaluronic acid, shea butter, and potent antioxidants.
Also good to know is that Brevena is fragrance and dye-free, and especially good for sensitive skin.
We are suggesting this as a must-have now, at $159 for the set. Note that you can also get this by subscription on some sites and save some money. And FYI:
MyChelle Ma Belle!
Michelle, ma belle
These are words that go together well
Michelle, ma belle
Sont les mots qui vont tres bien ensemble
Tres bien ensemble
Michelle is a song written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney.
Although it may seem to have little in common with MyChelle, a natural skincare line featuring Vitamin C, I think the products of MyCHelle go together well, as in the song.
An apple a day might keep the doctor away, but not necessarily the dermatologist. My Chelle helps to protect and hydrate your skin with their Ultra Hyaluronic products
In my test of the products, I felt an immediate hydration effect. I really liked the nourishing Ultra Hyaluronic Hydrating Cream ($30 1 fl. oz.). It’s in a pump bottle so you don’t have so much risk of contamination, and it silkens and plumps up skin in a flash.
The key ingredients are MyChelle’s high-performance Hyaluronic Acid and Squalane, along with a nourishing botanical blend of Resistem™ Plant Stem Cells, Blue Lotus, Rose Petals, and Freshwater Algae.
For your eyes, there is a very nice depuffing and illuminating Ultra Hyaluronic Eye Gel ($29 .45 fl. oz.), and a high powered Ultra Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum ($47 1 fl.. oz.) with skin-penetrating Hyaluronic acid. Bioactive ingredients like sodium PCA and olive-derived squalane combine to smooth and soften skin, with other good for your skin ingredients.
But my very favorite product is the MyChelle Ultra Hyaluronic Beauty Mist ($16 3.2 fl. oz.)t. Normally, I dislike aiming a spray directly at my face, but this was so instantly refreshing and moisturizing, thanks to Cactus Water and Hyaluronic Acid plus Citystem™ Plant Stem Cells and Niacinamide to revive and refine. \
BMyChelle products have 100% vegetarian and cruelty-free ingredients. They’re Gluten-free casein-free and don’t have any phthalates and parabens. What’s not to love?!
Suits Your Skin Just Fine!
Anti-aging skin care that protects not just when you’re out and about but also when you’re indoors, is yours with the Skinsuit Duo by SkinAuthority. Treat yourself and your skin to the Limited Edition SkinSuit™ boxed set ($69) to protect and defend against environmental aggressors.
It’s a one-step wonder in a tube to protect day and night against broad-spectrum UV, blue light, infrared, activity-induced heat, and pollution.
Skinsuit LIP is a wanded tube of sheer minerals with 10% zinc oxide (SPF 30). Natural botanicals will help with lip lines while the coated minerals keep your lips hydrated and protected. IT looks peachy in the tube, but really, it is no color.
Skinsuit Face Protection offers SPF 50 with 12% zinc oxide. It’s not just sun protection, it’s an anti-aging, hydrating, lightweight cream formula that works for all skin types.
I was a bit worried when I saw that the tinted in tube skincare was so light in tone. I was relieved when I realized it is sheer and melts into all skin types and tones.
Along with the skin-loving benefits and SPF to protect and hydrate, these products are so lightweight you won’t mind wearing them every day.
All SkinSuit™ products are reef safe and free of parabens, dyes, added fragrances, and animal cruelty.
Housed in a shiny gold metallic box, this would make a wonderful great holiday gift.
*note these products offer a subscription option, but you can still purchase the duo as a single item.

Viking Beauty Secrets:
At an Indie Beauty Even in NYC, I met Founder and CEO of Viking Beauty Eha Urbasulu. She was excited to showcase her new Certified Organic Day Cream, among her products.
I tried a sample of the Viking Beauty Secrets Day Cream ($46). The line also includes a Night Cream, Exfoliating Facial Scrub (with volcanic ash and rowanberries).
All of these products feature certified organic ingredients with star players of sea buckthorn, rowan berries, cloudberries in combination with hyaluronic acid.
Everything is made in Europe (Estonia) where the Nordic and- unpolluted ingredients became Eha’s inspiration for Viking Beauty Secrets.
The Day Cream is light and refreshing, almost as if I was visiting a Fjord.
An attractive blue and silver pump bottle isn’t oxygen-free. But at least it’s better than having to stick your fingers into a jar of cream.
If you want to try something new to protect and hydrate your skin, this is a newbie company that can deliver great natural skincare. For more information visit https://vikingbeauty.com/
