My Beauty Favorites — Week of May 2-8, 2016

Happy Mother’s Day to all the fellow moms out there!  I hope you are having a fabulous day!

I have, although it has been pouring down rain for most of the day. Our weather’s been fluctuating from warm and sunny, to warm and rainy all week.  Spring weather is always crazy in Kansas City!

This week, I am loving multitasking skincare — many with SPF — from DDF Skincare and fresh spring leggings from No Nonsense.  I was sent the below items for my honest review:

DDF Daily Protective Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF15, ($43 USD) — A fragrance free, antioxidant enriched daily moisturizer that helps shield skin’s surface from UV damage and free radicals that can lead to premature aging.

DDF Protective Eye Cream with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF15 ($55 USD) — A lustrous, lightweight daytime eye treatment fortified with essential fatty acids and humectants to moisturize and help minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Broad spectrum SPF helps protect the fragile eye area from future UV damage.

DDF Pro Retinol Complex 3 Moisturizer ($65 USD) — A moisturizer that mimics an in-office laser procedure by harnessing the power of Retinol, Vitamin C and Niacinamide (B3) for a smooth, even skin tone with a healthy youthful glow.

What I think: I have been using the Daily Protective Moisturizer and the Protective Eye Cream each morning, and I really love how quickly they sink in before I apply my makeup.  I always wear SPF, so it is so important that my day cream have it.  I love the Pro Retinol Moisturizer at night.  In the morning my skin is glowing and it looks fresh and smooth!

What I think:  No Nonsense has lots of great, affordable leggings.  These are all so comfortable, and cute, too! The Great Shapes Leggings really helped shape my tummy and look great under a tunic.  The Relaxed Leggings are awesome for on-trend athleisure looks, or just lazing at home (me).  And the Denim Capri’s are cute with summer tops.  So many choices!
