My Beauty Favorites — Week of May 16-21, 2016

It’s getting hotter every day in Kansas City!  I’m not a fan of hot weather, but I know that since it’s coming, I need to adjust my beauty routine accordingly.

This week I’m loving body makeup for smooth-looking legs, amazing argan oil to moisturize my skin and hair, makeup removing cloths for easy cleansing and moisturizing body washes:

Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs
Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs

Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs ($13.99 USD) — One of Sally Hansen’s best-selling products, Airbrush Legs® Leg Makeup is a lightweight leg makeup that leaves legs looking smooth and sexy all day long. The formula infused with Palmaria Extract, helps cover imperfections like veins, freckles or bruises and stimulate microcirculation. This long lasting, fast drying formula is transfer and water resistant. The spray-on formula blends seamlessly into skin for gorgeous and flawless legs. It is available in six natural-looking shades with a luminous finish: Fairest Glow, Light Glow, Beige Glow, Medium Glow, Tan Glow, and Deep Glow and is also available in a Lotion form.

This spring, Sally Hansen is bringing bare-legged beauty to your fingertips. The brand is teaming up with PRIV, a popular on-demand beauty app that allows users to order their favorite beauty services right to their doors. The partnership will bring the brand’s revolutionary Airbrush Legs Leg Makeup directly to women in select markets across the country. Beginning in April through August, consumers in New York, NY, Hamptons, NY, Los Angeles, CA and Austin, TX will receive a professional application of Airbrush Legs Leg Makeup from one of PRIV’s top stylists with any beauty service ordered through the app or on The coveted product will be applied right in the consumers’ own homes by an expert makeup artist, who will also teach fans how to use the spring essential with a step-by-step tutorial during application. As an added bonus, fans will also receive a complimentary bottle of Airbrush Legs Leg Makeup.

What I think:  This is the first time I have tried this product.  I received this in Light and Medium.  I decided to try Light now, since I don’t have a tan yet. Sad news for my legs, you are even lighter than Light Airbrush Legs!  It actually gave me darker color along with evening out my skin tone.  It was so easy to use, too.  I sprayed it on my legs, then blended it in with my hands, but the directions are to spray on hands and blend in legs.  Either way, it worked, plus it dried very quickly.  I am using this all summer!

Josie Maran 100% Pure Agran Oil
Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil

Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil ($48 USD) — A bottle of only the very top-grade, 100% natural, 100% pure, and 100% organic beautifying Argan Oil. 100% Pure Argan Oil, Josie Maran’s number one, best-selling, blockbuster natural beauty solution for dry skin, hair, and nails, is still a cult favorite. Made in Morocco by local women’s co-ops and first cold-pressed to preserve quality, this “liquid gold” nourishing oil remains the go-to beauty must-have for those in the know.

What I think:  I have tried samples of this oil before, but haven’t really used it every day until now.  I have been using it all over — my face, neck, hair, hands, arms and legs. I love how it instantly moisturizes without leaving me greasy.  It also makes my skin glow and look so healthy.  This is so nice after being outside in the sun (or the cold).  It brings my skin and hair back to life!
