Looking a bit ahead into next year, one of the biggest beauty trends will be a strong demand for nutri-cosmetics. Yes, they're back in a bigger way. Think antioxidant infused foods and drinks like Borba Gummi Bear Boosters and Glowelle taken to the next level. I've always been a fan of Votre Vu's SnapDragon drink, which also just launched a body cream with the same ingredients. Even though the predicted trend for 2012 is a demand for nutri-cosmetics, you know as much as I do that women will never replace their daily anti-aging serums, moisturizers and scrubs for them and they shouldn't. Instead, they'll become an additive to our beauty regimens as good-for-your skin drinks can't hurt. I'm anxious to see how these supplements will be taken to the next level.
Out of what's on shelves now, one of my faves is Votre Vu's SnapDragon and is blended with mango, pomegranate and acai berry juices, teas and seven vitamins including collagen, aloe vera and ginko biolba. It tastes delicious and like green juice, it gives me that focused type of energy.
Their new body cream, SnapDragon Creme Pour Le Corps, is loaded with the exact same ingredients as the drink (clever!). I have to admit though, it caught my attention at first because it's bright orange! Once I got over the color, I admired the light-weight texture that seeped into my skin and absorbed in seconds. It's a just heavy enough for this time of year.
