{Get Gorge} Skin Cleansing Brushes


For years I have been praising my Clarisonic skin cleansing brush. I adore it for so many reasons. Using a skin cleansing brush amps up your regular cleanser – helping to get rid of dead skin, tighten pores, help build collagen, even aid your anti-aging ingredients to get deeper into your skin. Now there are several new skin cleansing brushes on the market to help fit any budget. Here are the latest to try.



1. Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush $89.50 at clinique.com made with an angled tip to reach those hard to grab spots like the T-Zone.

2. Philips Pure Radiance Facial Cleansing System $149.99 at usa.philips.com has sonic pulses and gentle rotation for deep cleansing. This brush also comes with additional heads for sensitive skin.

3. Clarisonic Sonic Radiance Brightening Solution $249 at clarisonic.com comes with a line of special cleansers and treatments designed to work with this cleansing brush to give you smooth skin, fade brown spots, and boost radiance.

{Get Gorge} Skin Hydrators

140131-Rebekah-166 I’m always on the quest to combat dry skin – with everything from what I eat and drink to what I put on my skin. Even in summer, skin tends to feel dry from the hot summer sun, plane rides to your vacation spot, and swimming in the ocean. One of my favorite tricks is to layer on skin hydrators. Even in the day time when my skin is feeling dry or after getting off a plane, I spritz my skin with a facial elixer and then pat on some day lotion with SPF on top. Layering skin hydrators helps lock in hydration – sort of the same concept as layering your clothes on a cold, winter day. Here’s the right order to layer for smoother skin.




1. Start with clean skin at night and mist on a facial elixer like Caudalie Beauty Elixer made with essential oils and nourishing plant ingredients to help tighten pores and stimulate circulation.

2. Follow immediately with a facial oil like Josie Maran Pure Argan Oil with vitamin E and essential fatty acids to hydrate skin. Since it’s a lightweight oil this penetrates deeper into skin and locks in the nourishing benefits from your beauty elixer.

3. Finish with a thicker night cream (or in the day time a day cream with SPF) to help seal in all the hydrators.  Olay ProX Hydra Firming Cream contains niacinamide to prevent skin from losing water and stimulate circulation.

{Get Gorge} Yes, You Need These Makeup Brushes!


Good makeup brushes are worth the investment. Why? Well, quality makeup brushes can help any kind of makeup look good. Plus, they help your makeup go on smoother, softer, and look more professional. But, you don’t need every last brush out there. In fact, keeping your kit streamlined helps you stay organized. Here are the top brushes I am loving right now.




1. It Cosmetics Heavenly Wand Ball Brush $48 at itcosmetics.com – it can be tricky to grab just the right amount of powder onto your brush. Typically, you end up spilling a big pool of it out. Not with this brush. Each hair is trimmed to create the perfect ball shape that picks up the perfect dose of powder, leaving just the right amount on your skin.

2. Shiseido Perfect Foundation Brush $30 at nordstrom.com – Use this densely packed brush for stippling foundation or concealer onto skin.

3. Beauty Blender $19.95 at Sephora – technically not a traditional brush, but this sponge helps foundation blend seamlessly into skin without looking heavy. You can use it to apply cream blush and bronzer, too.

4. Urban Decay Good Karma Shadow Brush $26 at urbandecay.com – they call this brush your shadow’s best friend for a reason. It’s multitasking: You can use it for applying shadow to your lids, crease, and arch.


{Get Gorge} Summer Beauty Staples

My husband and I are moving to the beach this summer. So it’s time to get organized and start packing up. When it comes to makeup, I tend to find beauty staples for every season. Ya know, those products you fall in love with and are just perfect for that time of year. I am especially fond of certain products in the summertime because they remind me of days on the beach, warm nights out having fun, and bright, cheery colors. These are the summer beauty staples I am taking along.

1. Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact $42 at bobbibrowncosmetics.com – this is one of those why didn’t I think of it kinda products. It’s a bronzer and highlighter in one and just makes your skin look flawless. I love how its multipurpose to make makeup application easy, too.

2. Fresh Sugar Spray $88 at fresh.com – I have to thank my friend Meaghan for getting me hooked on this perfume…actually make it the entire Sugar collection. I use it only in the summer because it just smells so fresh and yummy like warm sunshine.

3. Colorscience Loose Mineral Foundation Brush SPF 20 $62 at colorscience.com – anyone who knows me knows that I am a sunscreen freak. I never leave home without it – day or night – rain or shine. In the summer, I have a sunscreen wardrobe – ranging from sprays for the beach to this little guy I use in my makeup bag and take out for touchups. I like it because it’s a mineral sunscreen that you just dust on and it’s coverage keeps skin looking fresh and clean.

4. Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm $5.99 at drugstores – I recently fell in love with Almay’s new Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm while on set for a satellite media tour. My lips tend to dry out and these are so super hydrating. Plus the colors are gorgeous. The shade above, Canteloupe Cream reminds me of summer with Popsicle stained lips. Plus, coral lips tend to make your skin look tanner.
