It has been so warm in Kansas City the last couple of days that it feels like Spring! My skin is still trying to get over the cold and it is so dry! So I am still loving products that moisturize and get me ready for the longer days ahead! My faves this week include a hydrating facial mask, a velvety eye cream, floss picks that whiten, affordable luxury makeup brushes and a cool light-up lip gloss!
Hada Labo Tokyo Ultimate Anti-Aging Facial Mask ($14.99 USD) — This sheet mask is the perfect option for a spa treatment at home. In 10 minutes this mask delivers an immediate boost of hydration using Hyaluronic Acid to keep skin looking smooth and restored. The box included 4 masks! What I think: This hydrating sheet mask is so easy to use. I just apply it to clean skin and 10 minutes later, I have super soft skin! And it doesn’t irritate my super sensitive skin!

Volante Transformative Eye Crème ($85 USD) — Supple, lightweight and luxurious, this crème was specifically designed for the delicate eye area. The crème is infused with a new peptide that’s clinically proven to help reduce dark circles, and special light diffusers visibly reduce the appearance of crow’s feet. Independent clinical tests showed that 90% of women reported their eyes instantly felt more refreshed, with more than 80% of women reporting that their eyes looked and felt healthier with fewer lines after four weeks of use. With a blend of 7 VITAE, this crème will leave your skin smooth, refreshed and younger-looking. What I think: This is such a luxe eye cream — it instantly smoothes my skin and it helps me look wide awake, even when I’m not! It is very lightweight and absorbs quickly.
