This week our focus turns to beauty for our younger readers and anyone young at heart. The average new face is still in their teens and so were all our great volunteers for this story – special thanks to Alison, Jacqueline, David, Joanna, Harini, Emily and Stacey! Here are a few of our personal favorite products designed with teens in mind – be sure to tell us your own in the comments!
There are about a million different fragrances out there geared towards a teen demographic, but a few gorgeous scents from some of our favorite designers are just right.
MARC JACOBS LOLA – Playfulness personified: with Karlie Kloss fronting the campaign and the adorable rose topped bottle, it is hard not to fall in love with Lola. The fruity floral mix provides a spritz of youthful energy with it’s blend of pink peppercorn, pear, ruby red grapefruit, geranium and rose. Appropriate for all occasions and just right for the girly girl in all of us.
CK1 SUMMER – It is safe to say that almost everyone has tried out the original (and uberpopular) CK1, but limited edition the summer version provides a new twist on the Calvin classic. You’ve still got the unisex and lightweight ease of the first, but with a modernized feel and innate cool.
VERA WANG PREPPY PRINCESS – the entire Princess line was designed with Vera’s daughters as muses, so it is no surprise it was a favorite with our younger testers. They loved the sweet blend of red berries, apples and tangerine so much that there was a little battle over the bottle!
SKINCARE – BURT’S BEES ACNE SOLUTIONS
One of the biggest skin concerns for teens is acne prevention: everyone, even the most popular models on the planet, gets a zit from time to time. Finding products that work can be costly and time consuming, but of the lines our teen testers sampled Burt’s Bees received the very best reviews. The fact that it was all natural played a big part in their choice – favorites from the line included the Pore refining scrub and Purifying cleansing gel.
MAKEUP – ESSENCE COSMETICS
Bored with the usual suspects, our group gravitated towards Essence, an affordable brand with a wide range of colors and textures. With nothing over 5 bucks a pop, you won’t break the bank but the quality was exceptional. Favorite products included, the long lasting lipgloss and stay put all day gel liners.
