My Beauty Faves Week of February 2-8, 2015

It was such a beautiful weekend in Kansas City!  The temperature was in the 60’s and 70’s!  My husband said that the weather is giving us a false sense of Spring, that it will be cold again soon.  He is probably right…but it is still nice!

This weekend I am loving a skin treatment that instantly makes me look younger, amazing hair care and color, gel-infused slippers and a portable humidifier.  Even though it seems like Spring, it is still Winter and I have to keep taking care of my skin and hair!

Roloxin Lift
Roloxin Lift

Roloxin Lift ($110 for ten sachets and $270 for 30) — Roloxin Lift is formulated to quickly repair, reduce and prevent the signs of premature aging and environmental damage in just minutes! Their advanced, individually packaged treatments ensure maximum efficacy while their innovative Lift Technology that creates a latticework structure over skin for an immediate brightening and tightening effect on fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamins A, C, and E work with soothing aloe vera extract to support firmness and elasticity and reduce puffiness and inflammation.

What I think: This is an interesting product.  You apply it and it turns white and tight on the skin.  Then you rinse it off after about 7 minutes.  Once it is rinsed off, it tightens skin and holds for about 24 hours.  I did notice my pores were smaller and my wrinkles less noticeable.  But, it irritated my sensitive skin and looked like a sunburn when I rinsed it off.  the redness faded after a while.  I think that if you have sensitive skin, this may not be for you.  But if your skin is not sensitive, try it!  It works very well.

What I think: I have tested the Omega Repair & Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner ($6.97 each) and the color ULTÎME hair color ($9.97 USD) in Cappucino Brown. The shampoo and conditioner left my hair soft and even a bit thicker.  And the hair color was easy to use, plus left my hair very shiny!  It contains pearl essence for the extra shine.

Geluxury Slippers
Geluxury Slippers

Geluxury Slippers ($39.95) — During the winter, there’s nothing like slipping feet into a cozy pair of slippers. Featuring SmartGel® technology, the Geluxury Slippers provide comfort and skin repair at the same time.  Infused with 7 botanical oils and ceramides, the dermatologist tested SmartGel® is formulated to restore, repair and rejuvenate distressed skin on the feet. With regular use, these moisture replenishing slippers will soften and smooth dry, rough skin and calluses, while repairing damaged cuticles and nail beds. The Geluxury Slippers are available in leopard and cow print and can be hand washed and reused, with the long-lasting SmartGel® proving hundreds of treatments.

What I think:  These slippers are an easy way to keep feet soft all year long.  Just slip them on and the treatment begins.  When you slip your feet into them, they are first a bit cool and slick, but you get used to it.  When you remove the slippers after wear, feet are much softer.

Violife Personal Misting Humidifier
Violife Personal Misting Humidifier

Violife Personal Misting Humidifier ($40) — As the humidity level drops in the winter, the amount of moisture in the air and your skin also drops. By adding moisture back into the air, humidifiers help skin stay hydrated. While traditional humidifiers are usually large, bulky and confined to one space, the Personal Misting Humidifier from Violife travels from room to room. Delivering the same ultra-fine mist found in large humidifiers, the Personal Misting Humidifier conveniently works with a standard size water bottle. Available in various colors and patterns, the Violife Personal Misting Humidifier uses ultrasonic vaporizing to moisturize the air, creating your own personal climate in almost any space.

What I think: This is such a convenient humidifier.  It is small and easy to use and move around, if needed.  The air is extremely dry in Kansas City this winter, and a humidifier is essential for keeping skin hydrated.  This works well for that!
