My Beauty Favorites — Week of February 1-7, 2016

Happy Superbowl Sunday!  Are you watching the big game?  I am until Downton Abbey comes on!

I thought I would take a break from the action and look back on my favorite beauty products I’ve tried this week.  I love trying new products!

My faves this week include a rich facial moisturizer, a skin smoother, a classic balm, and a long-lasting brow gel


Skin Authority Ultra Rich Moisturizer
Skin Authority Ultra Rich Moisturizer

Skin Authority Ultra Rich Moisturizer ($55 USD) — The natural botanicals of Aloe, Mango, Cranberry, Bergamot, Shea butter, and Safflower moisturize while helping to soothe irritation and calm puffiness for skin that appears soft, bright, and luminous. Helps skin feel moist and more hydrated without feeling greasy. Contains no parabens, AHAs, dyes, added fragrances, or animal testing.

What I think: This is a natural moisturizer that both soothes and moisturizes.  I have sensitive skin and this doesn’t irritate it at all.  I love that is goes on smoothly and doesn’t feel greasy at all.  By morning, my skin is soft and ready for the day!

DDF Micro-Derma Crystals Polishing Gel
DDF Micro-Derma Crystals Polishing Gel

DDF Micro-Derma Crystals Polishing Gel ($50 USD) — Restore a youthful appearance at any age by repairing damage at the skin’s surface. One of the most popular in-office treatments is the microdermabrasion. Typically performed by skilled estheticians, these skin sluffing procedures of rejuvenation are usually conducted over a lunch break. Treat yourself to an at-home experience with this unique polishing gel. The self-warming formula uses an exothermic reaction to help open pores and exfoliate dead skin cells and debris to even skin tone and texture.

What I think:  I like this exfoliator.  I do have sensitive skin, so I gently exfoliate with it and rinse it right off.  And, it doesn’t seem to irritate my skin. I like to exfoliate twice a week, and this really keeps my skin smooth and soft!

Bag Balm On-the-Go Tube
Bag Balm On-the-Go Tube

Bag Balm On-the-Go Tube — Since 1899, this ointment has been the farmer’s friend helping keep dairy cows from becoming chapped from the harsh Vermont environment. This product works hard all year round – and works well. For chapped conditions & superficial abrasions.  Contains lanolin and stays on to provide moisturizing & softening. Contains no alcohol.

What I think:  My family used to always have a tin of this in our home.  We did have some farm animals, but we used it on our dry skin, too.  The scent reminds me of that time!  Not only does it smell the same, it also still works well on dry cuticles, elbows etc. The new tube is great for taking on the go.
