Rael Beauty Daily Restoration Nourishing Gel Cream – 1.69 fl oz

What it is: Lightweight, gel-cream moisturizer made with a blend of H3O Hyaluronic Acid Complex, Fullerene, and Sunflower Seed Oil.

What I think: I can safely say this is my absolute favorite moisturizer to date, and I have tried a lot! The gel cream packs a ton of moisture for such a lightweight formula. I was equally impressed at how my skin felt the morning after the first night application. I use this 2x a day and always before I apply my makeup. Packaging is cute, but I would agree with the reviews and say it would be nice if it came in glass packaging considering the price point.

Rael Beauty Glow Chemistry Advanced Antioxidant Serum – 1.69 fl oz

What it is: Fullerene, soothing Green Tea Leaf Extract, and penetrating H3O Hyaluronic Acid Complex for deep moisturization.

What I think: I have read and read the benefits of serums, and every serum I have tried I don’t really see any differences. It’s almost like it’s working behind the scenes and results will show months later, and I do not want wait (need instant gratification!). This serum is no exception and I am sure there are others out there in a lesser price point for the same benefits. My skin glowed more with the gel cream.

No7 Lift & Luminate Triple Action Serum Concealer – 0.27 fl oz

What it is: Formulated with Matrixyl 3000 Plus™, hibiscus and Vitamin A and C to help reduce the appearance of pigmentation.

What I think: Very moisturizing concealer for under eyes and harsh winter months. This sheer formula is not going to be full coverage FYI. Great for no-makeup makeup days.

No7 Lift & Luminate Triple Action Translucent Finishing Powder – .35oz

What it is: Helps to diffuse light and reduces the appearance of pores and fine lines, leaving skin looking visible smoother.

What I think: Many reviews claim this is a dupe for CT face powder product and I cannot confirm or deny, all I know is this is my go-to for an instant filter for my skin. I use as my last step before setting spray and my pores and texture are gone. I will repurchase this over and over again and will need a reserve as I use this so much. 10/10.
