My Beauty Favorites — Week of February 15-21, 2016

It has been gorgeous in Kansas City this week!  Really warm and sunny.  It is turning cold again, but that’s okay.  It is still February!

This week I have been loving healing body products, a fun lip and hand moisturizing pack and a fragrance that is easy to carry with you.

Skin+Pharmacy Advanced Skin Therapy

Skin+Pharmacy Advanced Skin Therapy Collection — From hydrating body lotions and hand creams to diabetic moisturizers and healing gels, the powerful paraben-free products help achieve healthy skin from head to toe. Here are some favorites:

  • Stretch Mark Lotion – Features powerful peptide technology, Regu®-Stretch, to help reduce the appearance of stretch marks and peptide complex Vanistryl® to improve skin brightness while Hyaluronic Acid and botanical extracts including mango, aloe and shea butter help skin feel hydrated and moisture-rich.
  • 3-in-1 Itch Relief Lotion – Magnetized Moisture Technology delivers enhanced hydration to improve and maintain skin’s moisture balance while colloidal oatmeal soothes itching and calms the look of skin irritation and redness.
  • Healing Gel – Features skin softener allantoin to heal dry, rough skin while stimulating cell regeneration for healthy skin and Magnetized Moisture Technology for continuous hydration.

What I think:  I have been loving the healing gel.  It is very light and sinks right in the skin, and it provides instant moisture.  I think it will be awesome in the summer when it is hot and I don’t want to use a heavy cream.

My daughter who has eczema has been using the itch relief lotion and it seems to be helping her dry, red skin.  And it feels better, too.

You can purchase these at CVS stores and

Lastly, the Kleenex Slim-Wallet Pack comes in a convenient slim shape offering the highest quality of softness, absorbency and strength to tackle those pesky spring allergies. Together, the trio makes for a delightful gift for spring holidays!

What I think:  This is a fun Spring or Easter gift idea, or just as a treat for yourself.  I love the packaging of both eos products.  The lotion is slim enough to put in a purse or a pocket.  And I love the fun, round lip balm. And both smell amazing! And, I always need Kleenex, especially in the Spring.

The eos 2016 Spring Pack with Kleenex is available for $5.99 beginning February 2016 at Target, CVS, Walgreens, ULTA, Kohl’s, and
