Products I'm Loving Right Now

It's been awhile since I've done a "product post" so I thought I'd share with you some of my favorites I've been using lately.

Kiehl's Epidermal Re-Texturizing Micro-Dermabrasion - Micro-Dermabrasion at a spa or dermatologist's office is quite expensive so I use this once or twice a week instead. It's very abrasive (just like real micro-dermabrasion) but it leaves my skin feeling smoother and looking clearer. And very red! But the redness goes away overnight, thank goodness.

Kiehl's Creme de Corps - My friend recommended this body lotion to me. It's for extremely dry skin, which I have, especially in the winter. This lotion is very moisturizing and easy to apply all over. Love it.

fresh Black Tea Age-Delay Eye Cream - I went into Sephora a couple of weeks ago and asked for a very moisturizing eye cream to use during the winter and the woman that was helping me recommended this. It's super-hydrating. I use it at night and in the morning I use Algenist's Eye Renewal Balm. (I wrote about that eye cream here.)

Kerastase Masque Force Architecte - A hair mask I use once a week and it helps to replenish and strengthen my mop. Great to use in between hair appointments.

What products are you loving lately? 

So I think it would be insensitive of me to not acknowledge what happened over the weekend with the Sandy Hook tragedy so I just wanted to say my thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, the survivors, and the community. I can't imagine how hard this must be for them. What is this world coming to? Just a couple of days before the incident, the bank a friend of ours was working at was robbed, he called the police and the gunman was shot down when he wouldn't drop his weapon. This will affect our friend for the rest of his life, just like Sandy Hook has forever changed the world and the innocence of those helpless children. It's so very sad. Americans need more gun control and easier access to affordable, quality mental health care for those that clearly need it (and for their families) so that a tragedy like this can be prevented in the future. And they need our prayers. Lots and lots of prayers.

I've been meaning to try out Kiehls for a while!! Maybe I will :)
and there are no words for that horrible tragedy.. there needs to be a change and it needs to happen soon. Too many innocent lives are being taken.

Great review Marie! I have been looking for a new eye cream! Thanks for your advice! My heart is heavy with this recent tragedy. I still cannot believe that something this terrible happened. My heart goes out to all of those affected.


Great products. I used Kiehls and love their cleansers. Good skincare for climate changes are definitely worth the buy! :)
