My Beauty Favorites — Week of September 21-27, 2015

It’s been a good week in Kansas City.  A little hot, but hopefully it will cool down sometime!  Fall clothes are out and I still have a new pair of boots I bought a month ago that I really want to wear!

This week in beauty I am loving a ton of stuff to keep you moisturized (because the cool weather will come sometime, right?).  They include a fashionable lip balm, skin care for men, an instant face smoother, a moisturizer that evens skin texture, a luxe body lotion and a hand saver:

Carmex Moisture Plus
Carmex Moisture Plus

Carmex Moisture Plus (Approx. $4.50 USD) — Carmex Moisture Plus® lip balms are stylish lip balm sticks with a soft vanilla flavor and satiny shine. Contains aloe and vitamin E to help moisturize and soothe chapped lips. Limited-edition patterns are on point with each season’s fashion trends. Match your personal style with the must-have accessory that won’t break the bank.

What I think: These are so cool!  The first thing you notice are the fun patterns.  But, when you open it, you see that the Carmex is in a lipstick shape, which is very easy to apply.  Plus it smells amazing and is so moisturizing!

Gentlemen's Tonic
Gentlemen’s Tonic

Gentlemen’s Tonic — Here’s a fave for the man in your life! As one of the largest range of male product lines on the market in the US and specifically created to meet men’s grooming needs, the must-have collection includes an invigorating Daily Shampoo, Gentle Body Wash, Daily Foaming Cleanser, Pre Shave Oil, Traditional and Classic Shave Creams, Soothing Aftershave Balm, Daily Moisturizer, Moisturizing Hand Balm, Structure (Hair Styling), Clay (Hair Styling), Pomade (Hair Styling) as well as unique Eau de Toilette scents of Junzi, Sinsa, and Honos (MSRP $95). With 100% recycled packaging, the collection is free from Parabens & Petroleum Derivatives, Artificial Colours, Animal Extracts, Synthetic Perfumes / Chemical Additives, TEA/DEA and Sodium Laurel/Laureth Sulphates.

What I think:  I was given a sample of the Daily Moisturizer ($38 USD).  It smells spicy and very masculine.  It may be a strong scent for a moisturizer, but I think men will love it.

Roloxin Lift Instant Skin Smoothing Masque

Roloxin Lift Instant Skin Smoothing Masque ($110 for 10 treatments) — Achieve a brighter, smoother appearance with the Roloxin Lift Instant Skin Smoothing Masque. It can be paired with all beauty regiments, and it keeps working for up to 24 hours. Its patented SilicaLift™ Technology delivers a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and pores for smoother, more radiant skin that lasts all day.

What I think: I use this as a last step in my beauty regimen.  It makes my skin so smooth, that I can apply my makeup over it and it gives an even base.  My makeup looks amazing over it as it has smoothed out my lines.  This is great for special days or nights out.

MD Complete Even Tone & Texture Accelerator
MD Complete Even Tone & Texture Accelerator

MD Complete Even Tone & Texture Accelerator ($34.99 USD) — Antioxidant and nutrient-rich treatment that nourishes and hydrates skin. Evens skin tone and boosts radiance. Reduces the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles and polishes skin’s texture for a smoother, more supple complexion.

What I think: I think this product is a great idea — a moisturizer that evens skin tone.  Kind of like an exfoliator and moisturizer in one! I’ve been using it every other day since I have sensitive skin.  Once I get used to it, I will be able to use it every day.  You can apply it morning and night (make sure to use your SPF over it in the morning).

Shaveworks Pearl Luxe Body Lotion
Shaveworks Pearl Luxe Body Lotion

Shaveworks Pearl Luxe Body Lotion ($29 USD) — A rich and creamy, ultra hydrating lotion that soothes and moisturizes skin, and will transcend you into the lap of luxury. This unique fragrance-free formula contains essential oils that nourish skin, and Capislow™ that slows hair growth leading to less frequent shaves.

What I think: Love!  This is so moisturizing, yet it sinks into the skin and does not leave it greasy!  I usually like a fragranced product, but I like that this can be used by people with fragrance allergies.  Plus, it is just so luxurious!

AHAs help even skintone and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Glycerin hydrates, Wheat Protein tightens and Aqua Cacteen replenishes dry, dehydrated skin.

What I think:  Firming cream for hands… awesome! I love the soft scent of this lotion.  It feels amazing on my hands and leaves them smooth and soft.
