Skincare Sunday

There’s just something about the above product title that sounds weird.  Exfoliating Cleansing Powder?  Josie Maran what have you brought us now?  I had a hard enough time cleansing with oil…now we’re throwing a powder in the mix?  And it’s exfoliating?  Not just cleansing?  Mind is blown!

So what is it?  

A gentle yet effective daily exfoliator infused with antibacterial and antioxidant powerhouses to brighten, clarify, and soothe skin. 

Cleasning Powder

See below for some that I love (and that I may already own).  And share your favorite rings in the comments below!

If you’re a NARS fanatic – and have $500 lying around…then this is for you!  The Vault is a  limited-edition set with 10 full-size Audacious Lipsticks and 10 full size Nail Polishes—encased in an sleek, wooden keepsake box.  

For one of the first times ever – I actually like everything that is in this set!  Normally there are a few items that just seem off!  But I would love to paint my fingers and toes with each and every color!  And the lipsticks are the perfect collection of neutrals and pop of color dramatic!  However – $500 is a bit out of my price range…but I love the idea of The Vault!

Since I’m not a mom – many of the items available from The Honest Company just don’t appeal to me.  But they have really stepped up their game when it comes to bath and body products!  One of my new favorites is the Organic Shave Oil!  Even though I have had Laser Hair Reduction – I still have a few stray hairs that need to be taken care of every once in awhile.  I was really excited to learn about this oil that is made of 100% natural, highly concentrated organic ingredients – NO harsh chemicals!

  • Ultra concentrated organic oils and pure plant extracts help protect skin to prevent nicks, cuts, and razor burn
  • Lubricates for super close shaves and leaves skin feeling su...
