It’s been a while since I’ve done an Instagram Beauty Secrets roundup. One reason for this is because I want to keep the integrity of posts to ensure that these are beauty products that celebrities & Instagrammers actually love. Nothing #sponsored here.
Let’s get started!
Hannah Bronfman (pictured above) is no stranger here. We’ve already peeked insider of her fridge, it seems only fair to know what skin products she’s obsessed with. Not too long ago she shared an Instagram story featuring a product created by a woman with more than 20 years of development experience in the cosmetics industry.
The backstory behind this brand is that the founder discovered its main active ingredient (Centella Asiatica) while researching ways to eliminate a stubborn scar. Essence 27 is described as “a moisturizing booster fluid which provides the skin with the moisture it needs while enhancing cell tone.” I have no idea what “enhancing cell tone” means. But, if I had to guess, I suspect that it has something to do with keeping the skin cells plump and firm. That’s why they load this product with hyaluronic acid, known for its uber moisture retention properties. Centella extract is been shown to have a positive effect on wound healing and collagen synthesis. I would’ve loved to have a serum like this back when I was suffering from cystic acne. All I cared about was finding products to reduce/eliminate acne. I didn’t even think about using serums that helped the skin to properly repair and heal. Years later, I’m spending lots of money to correct these deeper scars. Looking at the price point, this is definitely a splurge item. But, for what it claims to do, it could be a great investment. Anytime someone with great skin gets excited about a product, I listen because it means that they notice a real difference even though their skin was already perfect.
Here’s a vid featuring Hannah as she runs through her morning skin routine.

Mega-makeup influencer Amrezy Olevic is known for creating flawless makeup looks. Everyone knows that in order to create a flawless look, one must start with a flawless face. I follow her on Snapchat and have seen her without makeup countless times. This woman’s skin is impeccable. For the longest time, she never shared any of her favorite skin care products. Then…..one day…..she posted this with the simple caption “New Favorite Mask.”
