It is understatement to say that 2020 has been a very tumultuous year!! And we are only halfway through. With global protests aimed at police brutality and racial inequality and the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to upend global financial markets and institutions, it is a wonder that most of us aren’t screaming, “enough is enough.”
Well, most of us are not desperately screaming for relief. Most of us are hoping for the best, anticipating a COVID-19 vaccine soon, and cautiously expecting the protests to render a more just society.
Still, all the unrest and disruption can be hard on your skin and with summer just around the corner, no one wants dull, listless skin or skin that looks like a battleground. Fashion Reverie has curated some unique and innovative skincare and beauty products that will maintain and protect your skin against the brutality of the summer sun—that’s right, keep protesting—as well as give you that extra summer glow that we all love!!
If you are in the market for a skincare brand that acknowledges that your skin is a unique universe with its own communication system that sends signals throughout the body about personal health and emotions, then For The Biome skincare is for you!!
Biome awakens the trillion microbes that cloak you skin and uplift your skin communication systems. Founders Paul and Barbi Schulick believe that a holistic approach to skincare renders better results. Paul and Barbi believe that the skin is your third brain and like any thinking organism your skin needs the correct nutrition.
The Biome team has identified nature’s most efficacious ingredients and obsessively sourcing their purest form, we pay homage to this intensive process with our technologies: Artisanal Fermentation™ and volcanic CO2 extraction. It is with these preparation methods that we see the clinically studied benefits of each ingredient come to life. The ancient practice of Artisanal Fermentation™ further elevates already exquisite formulas, enriching them with increased antioxidant content, prebiotic nutrients, and postbiotic actives including skin-strengthening short chain fatty acids (SCFAs), peptides, and probiotic lysates. If your skin’s microbiome is a garden, prebiotics act as a fertilizer that nurtures a healthy balance of bacteria while postbiotics may increase the absorption and efficacy of those nutrients, stabilize them, and lavish the skin with complex actives not found in isolated formulas.
This summer promises to one of the hottest on record. And whether you are out and about enjoying the warm weather or out doing your part to protest social injustice, the sun and the elements can do a real number on your skin.
Are you in the market for an ethical alternative to standard skincare and beauty products? Well, Sea Witch Botanicals may just have the skincare and beauty products that you are looking for.

PopMasks come in Starry Eyes (fragrance-free), Jetsetter (infused with jasmine oil), and coming soon Sleepover (rose-infused.) They are available as singles for $5 each or in value packs of 5 for $20 at CVS stores nationwide. They’re no muss, no fuss, and perfect on-the-go or at home.
Fashion Reverie never leaves the guys out of our seasonal skincare and beauty roundups. Luxurious Wellniss transcends the label of being another brand”—it is a mission-driven enterprise that seeks to refresh and rejuvenate the routines and products of both men and women of color whose needs have not been prioritized in the wellness realm.
Luxurious Wellniss has five products that are sure to bring a richness and lushness to a guy’s face. Wash Your Face: This is formulated to pamper your skin with a sugar-based Aloe Vera rich formula.

Loaded with oils such as coconut, tamanu, borage, sesame and avocado to hydrate while oatmeal and Vitamins E and B5 help to sooth and heal skin.
This addition to our summer skincare and beauty roundup is a little unusual; however, Fashion Reverie uniquely understands that beauty goes beyond what is on the outside, what’s going on inside of us also contributes to our beauty. The summer is not only the perfect time to concentrate on looking fit and trim, it is also important to consider beautifying our environment, and that includes our refrigerator smelling good. Get rid of those bad smells in your fridge with Moso Bags.
Moso Bags are a very simple and effective solution for a smelly refrigerator, providing odorless and chemical-free results within hours of placement! These bags might be small, but they are mighty: all-natural bamboo charcoal contains millions of tiny pores that can attract and absorb odors, bacteria, chemicals and moisture from the fridge like a magnetic sponge (including spoiled produce or foods with strong scents like fish). They also keep your produce fresh by absorbing ethylene gas, a naturally occurring gas from fruits and vegetables that causes them to ripen quickly. Moso Bags are also reusable for up to 2 years, ensuring the fridge is fresh year-round.
All bags are fragrance-free, natural and non-toxic. For space saving convenience, a suction cup is also included to hang the bag out of the way of groceries.
Have you ever heard the expression that the eyes are the windows to your soul? That may be true, and if it is true who wants a cloudy and fettered soul because of all the stress and discomfort everyone is experiencing. HydroPeptide to the rescue!!
HydroPeptide’s All Eye Need eye care kit is a 3-piece kit that targets fine lines, dark circles, and puffiness around the eye area. The new Vital Eyes Instant Awakening Serum will firm and immediately hydrate the eye area with a gentle retinol alternative called bakuchiol. Follow up with the best-selling Eye Authority Eye Cream, which will deeply moisturize while crushed pearl powder will add an instant glow and reduce the look of dark circles.
Last, but not least, it is so important to protect your lips from the ultraviolent rays of the sun. Who wants a scaly pucker this summer? No one!! Merle Norman’s lip conditioner helps protect against environmental factors with SPF 15 and antioxidant-rich, pomegranate extract keeps lips feeling great. Plus, it’s packed with humectants and emollients to smooth, soothe and seal in moisture. Can be worn under lipstick, and remember for best effect, use daily.
