[MUSIC] So doctor Barbara Sturm teamed up with her client, Angela Bassett, for a collection of skin care products specifically for skin of color. Major The foam cleanser and the face cream are a big part of my beauty regiment. And that's not enough Dr. Storm has a MC1 cream aka blood cream that is actually created from your blood. Like she literally took my blood and created a cream out of it. But that type of beauty comes with a price tag. This cream retails for $1400. Yes, you heard that right. I was lucky enough to try it out for free and it's definitely worth the money but we'll see if I can save up to refill it. So we all get in fashion ruts during the winter time where we're wearing dark, drab colors. So I'm obsessed with these scarves. These printed silk creations are bright and vibrant. I'm absolutely loving the leather fringe. I think they're just a really great way to spice up your look And bring some sunshine into our lives during these winter days. So the Beauty Pie mission is all your make-up, without the markup. This brand spanking new cosmetic company is direct to consumer. It's a membership only subscription service, where you pay $10 month and you get top of the line beauty products from their beauty collection at factory prices. So, that $24 lipstick. Will actually only cost you about $2.50, genius. All right guys that's it for now but tune in for more dope stuff on my desk next week.
A summer glow-up requires serious reinforcements and Dr. Barbara Sturm has all of them.
In case you didn’t know, Angela Bassett’s dermatologist and business partner is a internationally recognized skin care professional who specializes in the creation of products that help sustain clear and healthy skin. Her latest product, Skin Food vitamins ($95, molecular-cosmetics.com), uses the superfood ingredient Purslane to help prevent wrinkles and other aging signifiers.
Purslane has been hailed by those in the skincare industry for possessing what they call “fountain of youth” enzymes that are anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative and rich in healing properties.
Last year, Sturm collaborated with Angela Bassett to create the skincare line Skin of Color by Dr. Barbara Sturm, specifically for women of color. The line includes serums, creams and cleansers for those who have fallen victim to hyperpigmentation and blemishes.
As predicted, women flocked by the droves to get the products responsible for giving Angela her youthful glow and supple skin. And now that Skin Food is a reality, we fully expect history to repeat itself. Sturm herself recently took to Instagram to explain the plant and the compound a little more in-depth; a must-watch if you’re leery of trying out new products:
Skin Food retails for $95 and can be purchased here.
