My Beauty Favorites — Week of January 11-17, 2015

We had a surprise snow last night.  I knew it was going to be in the single digits today in temperature, but I didn’t know it was going to snow.  I think I’m done with winter.  I am definitely looking toward to spring!

To keep my skin soft this week I’m loving a hydrating face fluid, a body oil and moisturizing body lotion.  I am also loving cooling body wipes (great for the gym) and a maximum hold hair spray.

L'Occitane Shea Face Soothing Fluid
L’Occitane Shea Face Soothing Fluid

L’Occitane Shea Face Soothing Fluid ($50 USD) this ultra-lightweight formula contains calming, anti-inflammatory ingredients like rose hip and calendula oils and 5% shea butter to soothe, comfort and protect dry, sensitive skin. And to ensure you get nothing but a pure, clean formula with each pump, this fluid is housed in a special anti-contamination dispenser to prevent bacteria from entering.

What I think: I love this light fluid!  It’s so nice in this cold weather.  I apply it morning and night.  It can go under moisturizer or sunscreen or be used on it’s own. It hydrates my parched skin without being heavy.

What I think: This has such a bright, lemony scent.  I like using it on my skin after a shower or bath. It leaves my skin so soft without leaving it greasy.

Curél Ultra Healing Lotion
Curél Ultra Healing Lotion

Curél Ultra Healing Lotion ($7.99 USD) — has been clinically proven to work two times better than the leading intensive lotion while healing skin’s moisture barrier so it can better lock-in and maintain moisture over time. It contains extra-strength, naturally hydrating agents so skin feels soft, supple, and restored.

What I think: If you have super dry, cracked skin, this lotion is for you.  I love using it on my very dry legs and feet. At night, apply this to feet, then put cotton socks on. You will wake up with soft and smooth tootsies!

Unlike others, these cloths will leave skin feeling smooth and silky, instead of wet and sticky – perfect for when you’re on the go.

What I think: These come in four scents — restore, invigorate, energize and enliven. They are all nice, soft scents.  The cloths clean and cool the body and do not leave it wet or sticky.  They are perfect for after the gym or on a hot day.
