{Mario Badescu Facial Spray}

{Marvis Toothpaste, Classic Strong Mint}

{Sephora Lip Liner, Lovely Lilac}

{Sephora Lip Liner, Cool Coral}

{Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer, Sand}

Testing out some new products after a trip to Sephora and the Larchmont Beauty Center. The latter is my favorite independent beauty store in town. It’s nestled in Larchmont Village, a quaint little pocket of L.A. with restaurants, shops and great people watching. Browsing the shop feels a bit like a treasure hunt because there are many little-known brands from around the world. I came across the Mario Badescu spray and remembered an article about the benefits of rose water. So far I am loving it! The Marvis toothpaste is great. It doesn’t feel overloaded with chemicals yet it has a strong minty taste.

As for Laura Mercier’s tinted moisturizer, it is perfect for the dry skin months of winter. It’s hydrating and light. If you’ve ever wanted to give it a try, head to Bloomingdales.  A couple weeks ago I was searching for what I learned was a discontinued tinted moisturizer (Kiehl’s) when the neighboring Laura Mercier sales associate gave me a five-day trial container. What a wonderful way to test-drive the product!
