FEBRUARY 2016 BEAUTY FAVES

 

So¬†long, February¬†and adios,¬†winter! ¬†I’m ready for some good¬†lovin’ from the Spring sun that’s comin’!

Here I give some gratitude for some products that have saved me from the winter roughness — and that will continue to protect the epidermis¬†into Spring¬†and Summer. ¬†Try these out. ¬†These have been my February beauty faves!

ONE.

Great Lakes collagen

GREAT LAKES COLLAGEN: ¬†This first one is an (almost) everyday ritual. ¬†It’s something that my friend Molly (my friend with whom I talk for days on end about all things health, wellness and anti aging) introduced me to. ¬†It’s a powder that many doctors recommend for joint and ligament¬†pain, arthritis, digestive issues, etc. ¬†However, it’s also good and great — and a tried and true method to support skin, nail and hair health! ¬†If you’re too lazy to make bone broth (post on that coming up), then add a tablespoon of this powder to your smoothies, shakes or coffee!

I’ve been eating a pretty much vegetarian diet (although I feed my family animal protein) — but this is the one thing that hasn’t left my diet yet. ¬†Perhaps if I find a vegan/vegetarian substitute, I’ll stop — but until then…Great Lakes, it is!

ILUMINAGE SKIN REJUVENATING EYE MASK

 Make fun of me all you want.  My husband already does.

But, this silky¬†soft mask helps¬†maintain your skin’s youthful appearance and reduces wrinkles. ¬†My main¬†reason for loving it is — ¬†it’s just ¬†soooo super deliciously soft and it blacks out¬†your room from any emitted light. ¬†From the moon to the hallway light to your WIFI¬†station. ¬†And the pressure of it on my face is so luxuriating – it makes me fall asleep in a nanosecond. ¬†If they only made small ones so I could stick them on my kids allowing me¬†promised hours of silence from the little buggies.

$35 bucks from their website.  Not so bad.


THREE.

skinceuticalsSKINCEUTICALS TRIPLE LIPID RESTORE 2:4:2

This stuff is good times. ¬†It’s¬†corrective skincare and super intense. ¬†It’s hailed for being specially¬†formulated with the only proven ratio of molecules to restore¬†the epidermis and¬†support the skin’s repair function. Which is great…I love this sort of dual action. ¬†But, it also just feels so¬†good. ¬†I’ve been wearing it morning and night — and it leaves your skin feeling full and radiant and smooth. ¬†I like it especially because your makeup just gliiiides on.

 


FOUR.

ILUMINAGE SKIN REJUVENATING PILLOWCASE

I know. ¬†It’s gluttonous but it’s worth it. ¬†I couple my silky soft mask with this silky soft pillowcase. ¬†It’s indulgent but delicious — and you won’t wake up with pillow face. ¬†No more frozen spoons on the eyes in the morning! ¬†$60ish but¬†worth it.

 

 

 

 


FIVE.

ARGAN WEAR ARGAN OIL BB CREAM SPF 30

1b25db16-1a13-4d0c-9a23-b66ef2771a4b_PhysiciansFormulaArganWearBBSPF30.jpgAll my friends know I swear by all the Korean beauty secret trends.  BB Creams, CC Creams, cushion compacts, OH MY!  But the fees start to add up.

Enter Physican’s Formula Argan BB Cream. ¬†It conditions,¬†smooths and protects the skin – with its argan oil and SPF! ¬†It’s a new found item that I tote around in my purse and it’s super affordable. ¬†$14 bucks that you can get at Ulta. ¬†I still alternate with my Korean products, but this is a great cheap alternative!

 

 

 


That’s it! ¬†Thanks for reading. ¬†Look for my MARCH FAVES!
