It is finally cooling down in Kansas City! Yay! It’s now time to thinking about fixing my summer skin.
So, my faves this week include skincare picks such as a mask, an eye cream and a rich cream I love to use at night. I also have been enjoying a combo day and night lip balm and a new foundation. All of these products were sent to me for my honest review.
What have you been loving this week?
Lierac Magnificence Day & Night Velvety Cream ($78 USD) — This rich and velvety cream is highly concentrated in patented D-Glyox complex and enriched with botanical oils that nourish the skin to instantly smooth and improve skin texture. It is also formulated with shea butter and marula oil to ensure immediate and lasting beautiful skin.
What I think: I have been using this luxe night cream for a couple of weeks now. It is so creamy in texture and does not feel greasy once I apply it. It is so soothing and moisturizing and in the morning my skin is soft and refreshed! This is perfect for the cool weather that is coming, my skin will definitely need the moisture.

ChapStick Hydration Lock Day & Night ($3.49) — 24 hour care. Day: Ultra-conditioning daytime formula; SPF 12. Night: Replenishes overnight with tamanu oil, natural butters and antioxidants. 2 formulas in 1
What I think: This is a great concept. It is nice to have two products in one convenient stick. I just wish that the formulas were a little more moisturizing and little less hard and waxy. I do think that the SPF is so good to have and it is a great price!

Target SheaMoisture Sheer Foundation ($14.99) Blended with moisturizing Shea Butter, antioxidant-rich Vitamin E and nourishing Aloe, this liquid foundation provides ultra-hydration. Sheer, lightweight comfort while providing medium-to-full coverage. You’ll always get a naturally flawless finish!
What I think: This is a very sheer, natural looking foundation. It blends in to the skin so well, it looks like I am not wearing makeup at all! I like that it contains natural ingredients and is good for my skin.

Freeman Feeling Beautiful Revealing Peel-Off Facial Mask ($3.99 USD) — This revealing peel-off mask enhanced with pomegranate extract helps clarify and fortify skin. It contains Mega 8 Complex™, a blend of goji, acai, pomegranate, mango, mangosteen, cranberry, noni and blueberry which are high in antioxidants to help neutralize skin damage, leaving skin soft and revived. Ideal for all skin types.
What I think: Freeman masks are such a great buy because they are super affordable and work very well. I applied this mask this week and left it on for about 10 minutes. It peeled off afterwards very easily. And it left my skin very smooth and made my pores appear smaller!

What I Think: Love an eye cream that works on different eye issues! I don’t have a lot of fine lines or wrinkles yet (knock on wood), but I do have dark circles and this has seemed to lessen the appearance of those, so it’s a win for me!
