Product Round-Up — My Fave Beauty Things Week of September 15, 2014

September sure is going by quickly!  Fall is this Tuesday!  I thought I would let you know what I am enjoying this week while I drink my iced Pumpkin Spice Latte.  It’s almost fall, but it’s still pretty warm outside.

This week, I have been loving a facial mask with wine antioxidants, new shavers, a hydrating hair mask and a new natural bath and body line.

Pur Minerals Wine Exfoliating Mask

Pur Minerals Wine Exfoliating Mask ($29 USD) — Pür’s Wine Exfoliating Mask gently buffs away rough, dull skin with natural peach stones (seeds) as it fights signs of premature aging with red wine antioxidants from Bordeaux’s finest vineyards. Watch lines, dark spots and uneven skin fade from sight as Farm to Jar™ ingredients work to reveal a visibly more youthful glow. Paraben-free. Gluten-free.

What I think:  This mask smells like a delicious glass of red wine!  It can be used as a scrub or a mask and either way, leaves my skin smooth.  I have noticed my skin is more even toned as well.

BIC Soleil Glow Razor ($7.49 USD for a three pack) — Get a super close shave and dare to bare all. These razors effortlessly glides for a silky-smooth finish.  The innovative COMFORT SHIELD™ head evenly distributes pressure and helps protect skin from irritation. Lubricating strips with Vitamin E and Aloe pamper skin while the pivoting head and rubber grip handle deliver a flawlessly smooth shave.

What I think: I was pleasantly surprised by this razor.  It is rare to get a close shave by a razor that has moisturizers on it.  But, this razor left my legs and underarms so smooth.  I definitely recommend these!
