So What Exactly Are Liquid Crystals?

Want to know our secret for an uber hydrated, radiant-looking complexion? Two words: Liquid Crystals. This magical ingredient not only makes some of our most Instagram-worthy products—including Opti Crystal, Emulsion and Lumi Crystal—look beautiful, but it also provides unprecedented, lasting hydration. There is one word that describes these products and ingredient—Intense! Intense hydration. Intense results.

The liquid crystal technology used in our formulas helps lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles and visibly plump the skin for a more youthful appearance. Isn’t that what we all want? The newest member of the COSMEDIX family and lip-loving sister to our beloved Opti Crystal, Lumi Crystal Liquid Crystal Lip Hydrator, boasts a 94% pure liquid crystal base, making it both functional and beautiful. The liquid crystal base gives it a natural iridescent sheen on the lips that allows you to wear it alone or over any of your favorite lip products. 

With just a small, pin-sized drop of Opti Crystal, commonly referred to as “magical unicorn tears”, helps combats the appearance of tired, puffy eyes, dark circles and fine lines. Opti Crystal’s 99% liquid crystal base has made it a fan favorite and best-seller over the years. Popularity amongst our loyal customers sparked our creativity and inspired us to make a lip version with a similar formula—Lumi Crystal.

Emulsion Intense Hydrator is a complex moisturizer that is full of lipid barrier-restoring ingredients and, of course, liquid crystals! It’s perfect for getting back your youthful, healthy-looking glow. With the addition of shea butter, Emulsion is ultra-moisturizing and ideal to help lessen the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

Take a look at a few COSMEDIX customer testimonials about Opti Crystal and Emulsion!

Opti Crystal:

“This is probably one of the best eye creams I’ve tried. It has a cool iridescence to it that looks really cool when applied. But also keeps my eye area hydrated.” –Kristi N.

“I extremely love this serum. I have been using this serum for about 4 days and no more puffiness or dark circles!” –Yelis H.

Emulsion:

“I love this moisturizer, especially as the colder weather is approaching. Gives my skin a nice glow without feeling too heavy as well.” –Kirsty M.

“This moisturizer took my dehydrated skin from dry to very moisturized. If you need hydration, this moisturizer will change your skin.” –Brenda M.

We’re excited to let the world know that crystals aren’t just for meditation anymore—they’re changing the skincare world as well.

Happy Earth Day from Us to You!

As a pioneer of clean skincare, we’ve always taken pride in the plant-based ingredients that power our products. It’s April, and that means it’s time to celebrate Earth Month and use the natural ingredients mother nature provides for the benefit of our skin and bodies. The pure, natural botanicals we use in our formulas are chosen for their ability to moisturize, exfoliate, soothe and clean your skin so you can have the best results possible.

Our botanical ingredients list is a who’s who of natural healing components to help give you your most radiant, healthy-looking complexion—regardless of your skin type and whether you suffer from sensitivity, inflammation, dryness, uneven skin tone, fine lines, dark circles, acne and more.  

If you have combination skin, try Benefit Clean, our fan-favorite Gentle Cleanser rich in antioxidants including sandalwood and grapefruit to deep clean and hold moisture for a brighter, healthier-looking complexion. Benefit Balance Antioxidant Infused Toning Mist is another great option that works to deep clean with chamomile and witch hazel, used to protect your skin from damaging free radicals.

If you struggle with oily or acne-prone skin, start your clean skincare journey with Purity Clean. Our bestselling exfoliating cleanser helps unclog pores from impurities and oil with peppermint and tea tree oils and lactic acid. The best part? It never leaves your skin feeling stripped or tight. Use Purity Clean with Purity Balance Exfoliating Prep Toner, which has salicylic and lactic acids to remove pore-clogging impurities and a fresh, clean scent. 

Once you experience clean and clear skin that comes from an updated regimen full of good-for-your-skin botanicals, it’s only natural to want to get an extra boost in your new routine to help reduce signs of aging. Bio-Shape is a fantastic first step to get you to your goal of firm, smooth skin as it helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and helps lift sagging skin. The inclusion of botanical extracts and powerful peptides help soothe and smooth the complexion for a youthful-looking glow.

Ingredients such as chamomile flowers, green tea, aloe, and others can do anything from hydrate to serve as an anti-inflammatory as well! No matter your skin type or concerns, the best ingredients are the ones that come from the Earth.

How To: At Home Gua Sha Facial Massage

Inspired by traditional Chinese beauty and health culture, the Gua Sha stone is a facial massage tool that can help increase circulation, reduce the look of puffiness and promote positive energy in your face, eyes and neck.

For optimal results, try pairing the use of the Gua Sha stone with COSMEDIX serums or moisturizers. Whether you use your Gua Sha stone in the day or at night, the appearance of your greatest features can improve with each use. To get the best results, use your Gua Sha stone in an upward motion with three to six swipes per usage in the area that you would like to see improvement. If that isn’t reason enough for you to use the Gua Sha stone for optimal skin and circulation health, here are a couple more reasons:

  • If you use Gua Sha at least three times per week on your face, jawline, decollete, neck, it can revitalize and enhance the appearance of your greatest features
  • The smoothness and shape of the rose quartz can give a calming and cooling effect on the skin

The Gua Sha stone can also help the appearance of your face, neck, chin, lips, eyes and brows. Gliding the Gua Sha stone across your skin can help give your skin a healthier, glowing appearance. Beauty lovers all over are sure to flock to the new COSMEDIX Rose Quartz Gua Sha’s unique shape and smooth, cooling texture that will make taking care of your skin care much easier.

How to use:

Forehead
Start at the center of your forehead and glide the tool outward and upward from the brow bone to the hairline.

Cheek
Start at the nose and work the stone upwards in a swooping motion along the cheeks and cheekbones, moving outward toward your ears. Repeat 3-5 times.

Undereye Area
Start in the inner corner of the eye and gently glide outwards towards the temple to diminish the appearance of undereye bags.

Lips
Glide the stone over your lips 5–7 times for a fuller-looking pout.

Jawline and Chin
Glide the stone upwards from the center of your chin to the earlobe to create a natural-looking contour.
