My Beauty Favorites Week of July 13-July 19, 2015

Summer is moving along, still hot, though!  It was only 89 today in Kansas City, so that’s better than it has been.

This week I have been taking care of the skin on my face, body, even around my toes!  The products I have been loving this week are:

derma e Purifying Collection

derma e Purifying Collection — It happens day in and day out. Oil, sweat, bacteria and micropollutants build up on skin and clog pores, leading to visible damage such as acne, blemishes, sensitivity, fine lines, wrinkles, thinning or sagging skin. That’s why derma e® brings you Purifying Skincare. Doctor developed and clinically tested, it’s like a deep detox program to cleanse and reboot skin every day so it glows with pure health for years to come.

Specially designed for oily, active or urban skin types, Purifying formulas work naturally to draw out toxins, replenish vital nutrients and restore skin’s resistance to oxidative stress. Plus, the line is allergy tested and made with minimal ingredients, so it’s also safe for reactive skin.

What I think:  I have sensitive skin and have been testing the Purifying Toner Mist ($15.50 USD) and the Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask ($19.50 USD). The mist is refreshing on the skin, but it doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin.  The mask gently exfoliates and leaves my skin glowing!

Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Spray Moisturizer ($6.49 USD) — With summer in full swing, you want to ensure that your bare skin is hydrated all season long. Thanks to Vaseline® Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Spray Moisturizer, you can get the moisture you need, especially after a day in the sun.

Now infused with micro-droplets of Vaseline® Jelly and pure aloe, skin feels instantly hydrated, never sticky or greasy – it’s the perfect item to throw in your beach bag to keep skin feeling fresh throughout those long, hot days.

What I think: I have to say that I do love spray moisturizers.  They are quick and easy to use.  This moisturizer has a clean scent and feels cool when sprayed on.  I spray it down my arms and legs then rub it in.  Fast and it leaves my skin so soft!  Perfect for burned skin or even just skin that is dry from chlorine and self-tanner.

Vaseline® Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Spray Moisturizer is available in food, drug and mass retailers for $6.49 (SRP).


Q’urNail — ($10.50 USD) — Reduces destructive effects caused by fungus. Nourishes nails, improves skin’s appearance around the affected area. Useful for nails, cuticles and skin where fungus and other irritation can occur.

Contains 6 antimicrobial and 5 antioxidants in one formula, which works in two stages:

·         Eliminates/prevents fungus

·         Purifies/heals the nails and adjacent skin

What I think:  I haven’t had to use this yet, but I like how if myself or anyone in my family has nail fungus problems, this will help the appearance and feel of the skin around the nails. Very important for sandal season.
