It is getting hot again here in Kansas City, and humid. Our backyard is a swamp because it has been raining and the bugs are out, so I say inside.
This has giving me a change to try new products. My faves this week include two new breakthrough skincare items and a cool foundation:
Philosophy Ultimate Miracle Worker Multi-Rejuvinating Retinol+Superfood Oil and Pads ($75 USD) — the nighttime solution specifically formulated to help combat key signs of aging including lines, wrinkles, discoloration,
pores, roughness, firmness and radiance. this nourishing nighttime formula delivers clinically proven anti-aging power.
What I think: To use this product, pour the entire bottle over the pads. Then, this it to be applied every night after cleansing and before hydrating skin. After using, skin feels firmer and pores are visibly reduced. This is easy to use and really tightens skin and gives a youthful glow!

StriVectin Multi-Action Active Infusion Youth Serum ($89 1 oz) –Visibly smooths lines, firms and unifies overall texture. Instantly infuses skin with sophisticated luminosity. Clinically proven to strengthen the skin barrier 2x.
Julep Cushion Complexion 5-in-1 Skin Perfector with Turmeric ($30 or $24 if you are a Julep Maven) — This multitasking skin perfector has a natural, demi-matte finish with buildable medium-to-full coverage that conceals, corrects, illuminates, blurs & brightens. The convenient cushion tip applicator allows for easy and precise application, even on the go. Use it to spot correct and conceal, or all over as a foundation.
What I think: This product is unlike anything I have tried before! I received it in my August Maven box. I have been subscribing for years (I usually don’t review the box, because I only get a couple of items in it a month).
This has a sponge applicator, which is not new, but the fact that this can be a full face foundation is, plus it dries down to a matte finish almost immediately. If is full coverage and really pretty on. You only get a few minutes of play because it sets too, and I have found that I don’t need finishing powder with it. There are 18 shade available, so there’s a shade for almost everyone!
