My Beauty Favorites — Week of July 17-23, 2017

It has been extremely hot this week in Kansas City!  I have been staying inside as much as possible.  Thank goodness for air conditioning!

My faves this week include body lotions to hydrate skin and help with issues, a great detangler and round brush for smooth hair

Malin+Goetz vitamin b5 body lotion

Malin+Goetz vitamin b5 body lotion ($34 USD) — Smooth on our vitamin b5 body lotion and instantly feel hydrated. Light in weight, yet heavy in performance, provitamin b5 and essential fatty acids deliver deep, long lasting moisture and nourishment. The quick-absorbing formula leaves skin feeling soft and hydrated.

What I think:  This is a light lotion with a soft citrus scent.  It’s perfect for the summer, because it has a non-greasy texture and leaves skin really soft.  I love using it after a shower.

Depending on your skin’s particular needs, one of the three products in the line, used in a daily skincare regimen, can help every inch of your skin keep pace with the years and stay healthy this summer.

What I think: I think these products are genius ideas for taking care of aging skin.  I have been using the Moisturizing Anti-Itch Lotion on some dry patches of skin and it hydrates and helps it feel better.
