My Beauty Faves Week of April 13-19, 2015

We are experiencing rain and storms in Kansas City (April’s showers), but it is fairly warm and everything is green. I’m really starting to take care of my skin to get it ready for the warmer weather ahead!

This week I have been loving innovative skincare.  From spa-like treatments to a luxe serum to a spray on primer, I have tried fab products this week that have really changed my skin!

Radical Skincare Instant Revitalizing Mask ($65 USD) — is a spa treatment in a bottle. This foaming mask for all skin types restores, stimulates and boosts skin’s radiance. Apply like a serum and wait- it will start to bubble (like champagne on the skin!). The mask works by release nutrients into the skin- you’ll see more activity in the areas where your skin needs it most. A unique formula helps maintain optimal oxygen levels, distribution and consumption to stimulate the skin’s energy production so it can function at its best.

Radical Skincare Age Defying Exfoliating Pads ($75 USD) — use AHA and BHA to gently exfoliate and support natural cell turnover, working to tighten and firm skin, reduce the appearance of pore size and lines, and preserve skin’s hydration and nourishment. Excess sebum is also removed while leaving the good oils to nourish and hydrate the skin. Enriched with chamomile for soothing and calming, it is perfect for sensitive skin.

Radical Skincare Skin Perfecting Screen SPF 30 ($55 USD) — With 100% non-chemical SPF 30 protection, the perfect texture and crushed diamond powder for a soft reflective property, you’ll want put this SPF on every time the sun comes out. Light diffusing pigments reduce the appearance of wrinkles and imperfections, antioxidants fight aging and the ultra-light texture makes it easy to apply and use with any type of makeup.

What I think:  All three of these products are so different than anything I have used before!  The mask is fun to use and leave my skin really soft, as do the exfoliating pads.  Both products can be used a couple of times a week for really smooth skin.  The skin perfecting screen gives SPF along with brightening the skin!

These products are available at and Sephora stores.

VENeffect Firming Phyto-Lift Serum

VENeffect Firming Phyto-Lift Serum ($195 USD) — This potent, highly effective anti-aging treatment serum dramatically enhances skin tone and firmness. The unique formula is packed with 100% natural oat extract to firm the skin, while the exclusive phytoestrogen technology brightens, enhances skin tone, and dramatically boosts elasticity. Free of silicone, alcohol or fragrance, this serum is a highly active first step in the treatment regimen, working in synergy with VENeffect Anti-Aging Moisturizer for longer lasting moisture and firmer skin.

What I think: I have tested a sample of this and really like how it sunk into my skin and gave me an instant glow.  I would have to use it more to see if it firms, but I could tell it was a very luxe product!
