I’m a New Yorker, born and raised but I only recently discovered Absolute New York. Crazy, yes I know.

Pond’s is one of the world’s biggest skincare brands to date. Best known for their ‘Pond’s Cold Cream,’ surely you’ve heard the name before. Recently they released their Cold Cream Cleansing Balm which you’re sure to love.
The 2018 New York Fashion Week kicked off this past Thursday and American designer and MILLY co-founder Michelle Smith was amongst the many big names in fashion to preview her Fall/Winter 2018 Collection on Friday.
This year has truly been the year of beauty from the various collaborations to launches, for the average makeup user it was hard to keep up. Although here we have got you covered, there were some beauty launches that truly changed the game and here they are:
Cosmetic line CYO received a nice size crowd at the launch of a new makeup collection created for the unique woman who happens to be a younger consumer who are experimental. CYO boasts, “What does CYO stand for? Whatever you want it to! Call your own, create your own color your own…it’s beauty on your terms. CYO give women the tools – not rules.”
The collection includes product for the eyes, lips and face such as a two-in-one lipstick and lipliners, metallic eye shadows, dual-ended highlight and contour stick as well as, illuminating mixing cream. The price ranges from $3.50 – $7.50 and available at Walgreens and Walgreens.com.
Americas Category Director for CYO says in part, “We’ve created an edgy line that doesn’t break the bank and goes beyond your typical beauty boundaries.” The CYO philosophy is: Say no to normal. Yes to experimental. No to limits. Yes to more for less. Mix. Remix. Your way.
You’ll find the latest CYO products online and in-stores. #mixlayerhack
Caress Body Wash
My favorite part of the morning is taking a warm shower. I cherish those few moments of calm before my day begins. I’m always on the lookout for gentle body washes that can help start my skin off on the right note.
I recently tried out the Caress Body Wash Collection and fell in love with how great everything smells. My favorites were the Sheer Twilight Body Wash and Daily Silk Body Wash. The Sheer Twilight Body Wash is bold and mysterious with black orchid and notes of golden amber, dark woods, and exotic fruits. While the Daily Silk Body Wash is more delicate and sweet with notes of orange blossom and white peach. The Tahitian Renewal Body Wash contains hints of pomegranate and coconut, while the Pure Embrace Body Wash contains almond oil and white flower extracts.
The key ingredient in the washes is Caress’ unique Floral Fusion Oils. The Oils allow for the scents to last longer than traditional formulas. The washes are gentle but strong and the scent lingered on my skin all day.
POND’S Cold Cream Cleanser
This brought back memories for my mom. When she opened the jar, she smiled; she said she could smell her childhood.
This was my first time trying the POND’s Cold Cream Cleanser. I opened the jar and it smelled amazing. I was hesitant to try such a rich moisturizing deep cleaner but I was left pleasantly surprised. The cream removed all of my makeup without leaving it dry or super greasy. Part cleaner, part moisturizer, it left my skin super soft and clean.
I guess my mom was right, yet again.
POND’s MoistureClean Towelettes
On the go? Stash these in your work bag, your gym bag, and anywhere and everywhere else. The POND’s MoistureClean Towelettes are infused with none other than POND’s Cold Cream
Technology. I have a pack beside my bed for days when I’m too lazy to get out of bed to take my makeup off.
There are four different kinds of towelettes, each with their own unique benefits. The Evening Soothe MoistureClean Towelettes contain White Tea Extract, which is known for it’s anti-aging benefits. The Luminous Clean MoistureClean Towelettes contain Kaolin clay, which brightens dull skin and pulls out impurities. The Exfoliating Renewal MoistureClean Towelettes gets rid of dry skin. The Original Fresh MoistureClean Towelettes are infused with vitamin E and a triple antioxidant complex.
While makeup wipes are super convenient, they can also be a huge waste of money and product if the package isn’t sealed correctly after each use. I love that the packaging for the POND’s Towelettes come with an easy to close tab that has a great adhesive, preventing the towelettes from drying out.
It’s a jungle out there. And Desigual came out roaring for its Spring/Summer 2018 runway show with vibrant fashions, energetic dancers and vivid makeup.
The showroom is a Glossier girl wonderland.
