It snowed a little yesterday (Halloween) in Kansas City! I think that’s the first time in the 11 years I’ve been here. A couple of weeks ago, it was in the 80’s. But that’s KC weather for you…unpredictable!
So now that it’s colder (for a few days at least) my skin is showing it. I have some dry patches and unevenness, so it’s time to really take care of my skin.
These are the products I have been using lately. The H2O+ products are new and really cool, the Meaningful Beauty one are great for anti-aging and the CeraVe are great hydrators:
H2O+ Oasis Hydrating Gel Eye Mask 8 Pack ($26 for 8 or $4 for 1) — These single-use, hydrating gel eye masks cool and refresh on contact, pampering under eye circles to help reduce puffiness so eyes appear more awake. These and the face masks are cotton on the outside and gel on the side that touches skin, which I love. The texture for both is very dry though, no serum, just a gel that doesn’t make your face wet. Strange, but it worked well. My under eye are was smooth and firm after use.
H2O+ Waterbright Brightening Gel Mask 8 Pack ($36 for 8, $5 for 1) — These single-use, brightening gel facial masks will leave your complexion radiant and glowing while feeling smooth to the touch. This left my skin so bright and firm. It was not wet at all, so no excess serum to rub in, but it was dry and smooth. Very nice and makeup can be applied right afterwards.
