New Happy Skin Products to make you smile and make your day!Wednesday, August 27, 2014
Happy Skin is rapidly becoming one of my favorite makeup brands. Not just for their cute, top-notch packaging, but their products are very competitive with the high end cosmetics brands available abroad. Not just drugstore brands, but higher up on the food chain. Their prices are not bad either, totally affordable.
I have recently attended the intimate launch of Happy Skin two new staple products that came out: The ZitZapper Second Skin Cream, and three new wearable shades (jumps for joy), with romantic names such as Playing Footsie, Just Say Yes, and Honeymoon Glow.
The DGMGE Powder Foundation though has been in the market ever since Happy Skin launched, but it's the first time I'm ever going to try it so I am including it in this blog post. Here's a group hug shot of my new Happy Skin products. *click!*

Let's start with the Zit Zapper Second Skin Cream. I'm sure by now you already know that I am a big fan of Happy Skin's SS Cream, well, if you are too, imagine the ZZ Cream being like the SS Cream but MORE. Loaded with grapefruit extract that contains zit zapping qualities that fight unwanted acne!

This non-silicone foundation does not clog pores and is infused with Grapefruit Extract. Rich in antioxidants, grapefruit is touted as the new skin care secret. It effectively prevents skin acne and sebum oxidation, the trigger that starts pimples. It keeps troubled skin soft & supple, too. Wonder food Yoghurt Extract treats and minimizes the growth of acne bumps & plugs, and also serves as a skin brightener helping lighten scars & blemishes. Licorice Stem & Root Extracts act as anti-irritants that help reduce redness & irritation, thanks to their anti-inflammatory and skin soothing properties. Salicylic Acid helps exfoliate pores and eliminate the clogging residue that causes breakouts. This contains SPF 20 PA++ and is suitable for all skin types especially blemished skin.
As you might already know, pregnant women should avoid products that contain Salicylic Acid. Small doses are not so bad but according to my research, it is still best to avoid during pregnancy. According to my research, this is what I found:
But salicylic acid is another no-no for pregnant women. High doses of the acid in its oral form have been shown in studies to cause birth defects and various pregnancy complications.
Again, doctors are being cautious by recommending that pregnant women avoid the topical use of salicylic acid. Small amounts applied to the skin — such as a salicylic acid-containing toner used once or twice a day — are considered safe, says Johnson.
But the concern is stronger about face and body peels containing salicylic acid. "This kind of 'soaking' in the ingredient is similar to taking one or more aspirin when pregnant," she explains.
"More product used equals more absorption into the bloodstream," adds Baumann. Always check with your doctor before having a peel treatment. Better yet, she advises, if you must have a peel, have it done professionally at your dermatologist's office. A dermatologist will know how to do it safely during pregnancy. (www.babycenter.com)
I love that this ZZ cream is very hydrating regardless of its acne fighting ingredients. Usually I find them a bit drying, but this cream really hydrated my skin well. PLUS! It contains a mild cooling effect on the skin to keep your skin feeling fresh!
I am always skeptic about powders because I can never find a match for my skin tone. It's weird I know. But there are only a handful of brands out there that carry my tone.

Head out to Happy Skin today and check out these new amazing products. I find myself using a lot of Happy Skin lately, if not all, at least one or maybe two products.
Happy Skin and I are a perfect match.
