Skincare Picks For Fall From Derma E, Klairs and Meaningful Beauty

Hi all! It’s October and the weather either has or will be turning colder soon! In Kansas City, one day it’s in the 80’s the and the next it’s in the 60’s. It’s been crazy!

When the weather does change, I also like to change up my skincare. My sensitive skin gets drier and I am already seeing dry patches.  Here are the products I have been testing out and they have been sent for my honest review:

DERMA E Very Clear Acne Cleanser ($15.50 USD) and Very Clear Acne Spot Treatment ($11.50 USD) — These are both great products for helping acne-prone skin.

The cleanser is great for removing built-up oil and makeup to help unclog pores, promote clear skin and prevent breakouts.It contains an Anti-Blemish Complex of natural ingredients Tea Tree, Willow Bark, Rosewood, Lavender and Chamomile and delivers natural antibacterial and antiseptic properties leaving skin purer, clearer and healthier. I love how clean it leaves my skin without stripping it!

Even thought I do have clogged pores, I don’t break out as often anymore, but the acne spot treatment helps clear up those surprise pimples that come out of nowhere!  It delivers natural antibacterial and antiseptic properties to help clear the complexion and prevent blemishes while reducing redness and sensitivity. It may be used as often as necessary whenever breakouts occur to calm and soothe red, irritated skin.  I love that it’s not harsh!

KLAIRS Soft Airy UV Essence SPF 50 ($23 USD) — This is an everyday sun protector for sensitive skin, which I have. As is it water-based, it holds a gel-type texture to give a soft weightless and light finish. Also with its high SPF and PA level, it completely guards the skin against UVA, UVB without leaving any greasiness or white cast.

I have been using this every morning.  It sinks right in to my skin and is a great base for primer and foundation.  It doesn’t really have a scent and it is so nice on my very sensitive skin! Since it isn’t heavy, I think this is perfect for using all year long.  It is so important to wear SPF every day!

Meaningful Beauty is such a gorgeous brand!  This is Cindy Crawfords line of anti-aging products.  The line has lots of different products from cleansers, to moisturizers to treatments.

The products from left to right are the Environmental Protecting Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen,  Youth Activating Melon Serum, Overnight Retinol Repairing Crème, Skin Softening Cleanser.

These are all so nice and work well with my sensitive skin!  The cleanser is easy to use and doesn’t dry out my skin. The day cream is very nice, and we all know that SPF is very important! The serum is very luxurious! It sinks into the skin quickly and leaves skin glowing!  I’ve noticed that my lines have become less noticeable. It could also be the wonderful retinol night cream.  That really makes my skin look smoother and clearer.

You can purchase these at www.meaningfulbeauty.com or Ulta.com.

September 2018 Beauty Favorites

IMG_2181.JPG

Hi all!  Can you believe it’s the end of September?  Tomorrow is October and I am so ready for fall and the holidays!

I’ve had a fun month trying and reviewing some new products, and products that are new to me:

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette ($49 USD) — I purchased this during the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty (haul post to come this week).  This is an older palette, but I haven’t tried it yet.  This smells like sweet chocolate — it’s so nice! The eye shadows are pigmented with pure, antioxidant-rich cocoa powder and includes 16 matte and shimmer shades of browns, pinks and plums. I’ve really been liking this!

Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence ($23 USD) — This is another product I need to review!  Klairs is a Korean beauty brand and I was excited to receive this for review! This is light and creamy SPF essence! It has SPF 50 and is formulated for sensitive skin. It has a water-based it gel texture and sinks right into the skin once applied.

YourGoodSkin Balancing Skin Concentrate ($19.99 USD) — This is YourGoodSkin’s hero product. I use this as a serum under my Klairs essence or my night cream.  It it so light and absorbs into my skin so quickly.  The claim is that it restores and maintains skin’s natural balance for clinically proven visibly healthier skin in just 28 days. For all skin types. Designed to improve the 5 key signs of visibly healthy skin:

Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Face Primer ($30 USD) —  I received a tiny sample of this in this month’s Ipsy bag and I LOVE it!  I have been hoarding it by using a little at a time. It is a creamy pore filler and looks amazing under all of my foundations!

Buxom Cosmetics Full-On Plumping Lip Cream in Hot Toddy ($21 USD) — This is such a beautiful product.  This one doesn’t have a shimmer and it is very glossy. It’s plumping, hydrating and so shiny at the same time!  And it has a beauty color payoff. 

Buxom Cosmetics Lash Volumizing Mascara ($22 USD) I have been wearing this mascara for a couple of weeks and am loving it. It’s a  volumizing mascara that dramatically defines, lengthens, and instantly lifts for fuller looking, ultra-black lashes minus any clumps. I love it for an every day look, but it can be built up for more drama!

Last but not least is the Natasha Denona Super Glow Highlighter ($38 USD) — This super-soft, lightweight formula melts into the skin. It gives a glass-like strobing effect thanks to its high concentration of crushed and milled chroma crystals mixed with crushed pearls.

I have this in the fair shade, Icy Ivory.  It’s so gorgeous!  But, it’s not really an every day glow.  But I want to use it everyday because the glow looks healthy as well as booming!  So I like to brush a little translucent powder on top to tone it down. I kind of want this in Light Medium – nude champagne next.
