My Beauty Favorites — Week of July 3 – July 9, 2017

Another hot week has gone by!  I hope you had a great holiday weekend!  I enjoyed some sun and fun!

This week I am loving products that are good for my skin and make a difference in it’s appearance.  They include a duo of products to rid you of crepey skin, an amazing group of SPF moisturizers from H2O+, a combo hand creme and lip balm, and fab anti-aging skincare:

Crepe Erase Exfoliating Body Polish — This luxurious body scrub is your first step to visibly smoother, firmer, more radiant skin. It’s specifically developed to target dull, saggy, crepey skin on areas like your neck, chest, arms and legs. It’s free of plastic micro beads and uses exfoliators like rice bran wax and lactic acid to gently buff away dead skin cells and other skin-aging impurities for visibly smoother, younger-looking skin. Its fresh, clean fragrance invigorates the senses while leaving your skin lightly scented.

Crepe Erase Intensive Body Repair Treatment — The powerhouse of the Crepe Erase system, this deeply hydrating, nutrient-rich formula with TruFirm Complex helps to visibly repair and condition the appearance of dry, aging, crepey skin on the neck, chest, arms and legs. It’s developed to help restore your skin’s youthful bounce, and it’s clinically shown to provide all-day moisture for satin-smooth skin. When paired with the Exfoliating Body Polish, it’s clinically shown to improve the look of crepey, sagging-looking skin.

What I think — This set is $39.95 online.  The Body Polish is gentle, but really scrubs thoroughly.  It leaves my skin very smooth.  The Body Repair Treatment is a creamy moisturizer that instantly hydrates and softens.  I notice that my skin on my neck is much smoother and look younger.

H2O+ Beauty SPF Moisturizers

Aquadefense Protective Matcha Moisturizer SPF 40 ($44 USD) — SPF 40 blocks 97.5% of UVB rays while broad spectrum coverage also protects against UVA rays which can accelerate skin aging. Featuring Matcha Green Tea and Rice Bran extracts, it protects against skin damage and moisture loss without leaving any white residue.

Oasis Daily Defense Moisturizer SPF 30 ($42 USD) — This moisture-packed SPF offers protection from the sun’s harmful rays while remaining lightweight to the touch. It’s infused with Sea Grass and Water Lily extracts because you should be rewarded for being so responsible.

Infinity+ Wrinkle Delay Cream SPF 30 ($58 USD) — Broad-spectrum sun protection with an anti-aging kick, this day cream contains age-defying peptides and a daily dose of SPF to help ward off the appearance of wrinkles. Its silky texture features Camellia Japonica Oil and Red Algae extract.

Waterbright Radiating Moisturizer SPF 30 (54 USD) — This powerhouse daytime moisturizer is infused with Vitamin C, known to combat dull, uneven skin tone. The fast-absorbing formula boasts an infusion Pomelo and Snowflake Flower extracts and broad spectrum coverage to decrease the risk of early skin aging caused by the sun.

What I think:  These SPF moisturizers from H2O+ are awesome multitaskers!  They are your day cream and SPF in one.  Right now, the one I am using most is the Aquadefense since it has a SPF of 40.  It’s perfect for the summer.  I also love the Infinity+ for aging skin, it smooths and softens skin.  They all are amazing and theirs one for all skin types!

Votre Vu Bébé Duette

Votre Vu Bébé Duette ($24 USD) — If one is good, two is better… A Duette sung in perfect harmony. Beautifully moisturized hands always rate in the Top 10 on the charts and Lovely Lips sing sweetly in every language. A clever little pair to keep everywhere – in fact you may want more than one! Includes:

tarte d’amande (almond pie) hand crème — This intoxicating hand crème leaves a soft veil of almond and coconut fragrance lingering on the skin.  This succulent recipe of nourishing and protecting sunflower, grape seed and jojoba oils combined with moisturizing and healing aloe, wheat proteins and natural sun filters develops into the perfect treat, anytime of the day.

clair (clear) lip balm — This nourishing lip balm made from coconut oil, shea butter and beeswax gently protects, nourishes and softens lips in every condition. A deliciously light and natural coconut flavor delivers a guiltless treat to your mouth with every application. Intensively nourishing, your lips will become supple and shiny again.

What I think: I am so in love with this!  The two products that I always need in my purse are hand cream and lip balm.  This combines them into one handy product.  Plus, they are both very hydrating and smell delicious!

Meaningful Beauty Antioxidant Day Créme SPF 20 ($40 USD) — Suitable for all skin types, this lightweight moisturizer is fortified with the Exclusive Microencapsulated Melon Complex and dual action Vitamin C to provide free radical damage and helps to brighten complexions while smoothing out fine lines.

Meaningful Beauty Glycolic Treatment Pads ($48 USD) — Designed to exfoliate and rejuvenate skin, these pads help skin look fresh and evenly toned. 10% glycolic acid revitalizes and minimizes pores, while removing surface skin oils. The result? Youthful, glowing, more vibrant skin.

What I think:  Both of these products can help to achieve glowing summer skin.  The Glycolic Treatment Pads make my skin look clearer, and more pores much cleaner.  The Day Creme protects while hydrating and looking smooth.

Prep Your Skin For Fall With Powerhouse Skin Care Part 2

Continuing on with my fall skin preparation, I have more amazing skin care to share with you!

There are so many amazing and different beauty products out there!  Skin care can have so many steps these days, because you can add more and more.  I would just stick to a few basics — cleanser, serum, moisturizer (w/SPF for day), night cream and eye cream.  Then you can add a toner or essence, difference serums, peels, masks, neck products etc, if you’d like!

Below are some great choices of innovative skincare:

H2O+ Beauty Elements On the Move Cleansing Stick ($28 USD) — Infused with a touch of Pearl extract, this solid face cleansing stick glides directly across your face and foams up without you ever having to use your fingers. This innovative format means no more suitcase spills, messy applications, or getting stopped by TSA.

H2O+ Beauty Infinity+ Refining Essence  ($44 USD) — This refreshing essence conquers dullness, dryness, and pesky pores. In a single swipe, it removes dull skin, reduces the appearance of pores, and hydrates skin. Features Red Algae extract and Camellia Japonica Oil it will quickly become a staple of your morning routine

H2O+ Beauty Waterbright Illuminating Serum ($56 USD) — Rich in Vitamin C, this serum is clinically proven to improve 7 different (amazing) aspects of skin tone*. Let us count the ways: Reduce the intensity of dark spots, Enhance radiance, Improve clarity, Even skin tone, Increase brightness, Enhance texture and Improve complexion health.

What I think:  I love the cleansing stick, its so easy to use.  I wet my face at night, rub the stick all over my face and then rinse off.  Clean and soft! Plus, it’s portable.

The refining essence is a great product for on the go.  It cleans and hydrates in one step and can be used morning and/or night either under a serum or moisturizer or on it’s own.  It leaves skin glowing and soft!  Add the illuminating serum over it, and skin is very smooth and glowy.

Mineral Fusion Makeup Removing Oil Cleanser ($18.99 USD) — This gentle cleanser soothes as it cleanses leaving skin calm and comforted. Nutrient–replenishing Mineral Water and softening Argan Oil restore moisture for softer, supple skin and a more even complexion.

Mineral Fusion SPF 40 Moisturizer ($24.99 USD) — This ultimate age-defense cream provides broad spectrum mineral SPF to help prevent pre-mature sign of aging. Instantly protects skin from sunburn. Easily layer underneath foundation and primers for a healthy dose of SPF protection.

Mineral Fusion Color Correcting Primer ($28.99 USD) — Naturally camouflaging mineral pigments help conceal unwanted redness and hyperpigmentation revealing even, flawless-looking skin. This soothing formula fills in lines, evens tone, and smoothes texture creating a balanced canvas for makeup application.

What I think:  Oil cleansers are such a gentle way to remove makeup and clean the skin. Argan oil is one of my favorite things, and I love that this leaves my skin soft, but not greasy. The SPF moisturizer is so light, but protects fiercely!  Great under makeup.

The primer works well for those with lots of redness or dark spots.  It helps correct the flaws and primes skin for foundation.

Prai Beauty AGELESS Throat Microdermabrasion Skin Resurfacer ($25.95 USD) — This lightweight, easy-to-use formula exfoliates skin – transforming dry, sagging skin to a dewy, firm complexion. It’s the ultimate way to re-texturize and resurface your skin without visiting a derm!

Prai Beauty AGELESS Throat & Decolletage Crème ($34.95 USD 1.7 fl. oz) — This weightless créme developed specifically for the throat and décolletage helps to promote cell firmness and resiliency, while absorbing with minimal blending to avoid skin stretching. The number one selling formula is comprised of Sepilift DPHP™ to restore elasticity and support skin’s collagen. Shea butter, Hyaluronic Acid, Squalene and Glycerin keep skin supple and visibly reduce and correct the signs of aging.

Prai Beauty AGELESS Eye D-Crease ($32.95 USD) — This peptide enriched creme enhances the gentle skin around the eye area by smoothing and decreasing fine lines and crow’s feet. Fragrance and irritation free.

What I think:  Two areas that I think really show one’s age are the eyes and the neck and throat. The microdermabrasion for the throat is a really unique product.  It really smoothed my throat and left it so soft.  Following up with the throat cream firms the skin and really makes it look younger!

I use the eye cream all around my eye to help with lines and texture. It is very hydrating without being greasy.
