My Beauty Favorites — Week of August 14-20, 2017

Tomorrow is the Solar Eclipse!  How exciting!  Kansas City is in the path.  But, I couldn’t find glasses, so I will probably stay inside and experience the darkness without looking directly at it.  Then I’ll run outside and check on our animals (goats, chickens, rabbits)!

This week I have been loving a luxe new gel balm cleanser, a mascara that you shake and sandy nude nails:

Eve Lom Gel Balm Cleanser

Eve Lom Gel Balm Cleanser ($60 USD) — Fortify, purify and beautify your complexion with Eve Lom Gel Balm Cleanser, an innovative skincare formulation with ameliorative and regenerative properties. This hybrid gel-to-balm solution melts away makeup and impurities before enhancing the skin with intensely moisturising and hydrating active ingredients.

It is formulated with clove oil, utilised for its antiseptic properties, while eucalyptus oil works to banish toxins and purify the complexion. Energizing Egyptian chamomile oil works alongside shea butter to enhance the skin’s moisture levels. Grapeseed oil is included for the regulation of oil production, maintaining a healthy balance of natural oils while antioxidants defend against environmental stressors. Emulsifying lecithin and botanical extracts such as argan oil and olive oil soothe and nourish, establishing a radiant complexion.

What I think: This cool new cleanser feels so good on!  The natural oils and extracts cleanses my skin well and keep it hydrated throughout the day.  I love that I’m doing something good for my skin!
