My Beauty Favorites — November 20-26, 2017

I hope everyone’s holiday weekend is going well!  The days just flew by! It was in the 60’s in Kansas City and sunny, just a really nice weekend!

This weeks I have been loving potent skincare.  Do you know that November is National Healthy Skin Month?  I know that it’s almost over, but I wanted to share some of my luxe favorites:


Dear by Renee Youth Soothing Crème

Dear by Renée® Youth Soothing Crème ($74.95) Infused with the skin healing, Arnica Extract, which is known to soothe and calm skin disorders like eczema this soothing crème contains several active components that target chronic itchy, red or problematic skin leaving a radiant and hydrated complexion.

What I think: This is perfect for my red, sensitive skin.  It has a creamy texture that makes my skin look instantly smooth.  I love it under makeup in the morning and under my heavier creams at night.  My skin is soft, plus the redness is lessened. I also love how clear and youthful my skin is looking in the few weeks I have been using this.  Worth the price tag!

CHUDA Hydrating Healing Cream

CHUDA Hydrating Healing Cream ($150, on sale right now for $75!) is a ground-breaking hydrating healing cream formulated with the purest, most potent and scientifically advanced, medical grade active ingredients. Chuda’s unique formula creates the perfect environment for the skin to heal: Upon application, the cream blankets and protects the skin as it directly delivers its highly concentrated combination of vitamins, botanicals, antioxidants, essential fatty acids and peptides to achieve and maintain healthy skin. Chuda was created by Dr. Elena Ocher, a brilliant diagnostician who has helped thousands of patients successfully find relief with her healing cream.

What I think:  This very luxe cream helps heal sensitive, dry skin.  It’s an amazing night cream, because it instantly hydrates but keeps working as I sleep. I do find when it gets colder, I do need more hydration.  So this will be amazing for winter!

G.M. Collin Native Collagen Gel ($88 USD) is a visibly re-energizing, dermo-dynamic gel, formulated to protect, moisturize, restore the skin’s natural defense mechanisms and fight wrinkles. With its unique combination of active ingredients, such as Soluble Native Collagen, Honey Extract, Grapefruit Peel, Hydrolyzed Elastin and Oligopeptide-5, the revolutionary gel is perfect for dehydrated, devitalized and mature skin.

What I think:  This gorgeous gel is perfect for using at night to boost hydration and fight wrinkles.  I love it under night creams, but it’s great on it’s own, too.  It sinks in, but leaves my skin so soft.

NGLOT Hydrating Day Serum

INGLOT Hydrating Day Serum ($55 on sale now for $44 USD): Enriched with first-rate ingredients including a microalgae complex and black pearl extract, this serum provides long lasting skin hydration. Bioactive peptides and hyaluronic acid reinstate elasticity and flexibility of the skin and improve its density. Buddleja davidii, also called butterfly bush, cares for the natural protection against external factors. The unique and natural exopolysaccharide perfectly tightens the skin and diminishes the look of fine lines and wrinkles. On top of that, vitamins C, E and F soothe the skin, reduce its unpleasant tension and ease the feeling of irritation.

What I think: I knew that INGLOT made cool cosmetics, but I didn’t know abut their skincare. This is a light serum that is perfect under SPF and makeup for day use. It absorbs really quickly and leaves skin smooth for makeup application.
