Friday Finds: February 15, 2013.


I hope you had a great week and enjoyed your Valentine's Day! Did you do anything special with your loved one?

I'm so glad it is Friday. After the major snow storm last week and more than two days of digging out - and we still have piles - I am thrilled to be jetting off to sunny skies in a few days. I am self-tanning my new softer skin already. I'll be bringing my new favorite Maybelline Color Whispers with me and a few of my finds too. And if I need to replenish anything, these beauties will be easy to find because they are all available at mass retailers.

1. Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 - $9.99
This super lightweight lotion melts into skin on contact and protects it with a broad spectrum SPF 30. While it is made to be a hydrating sunscreen, I am using it as a daily lotion. It give me my daily sunscreen protection and makes it feel soft and hydrated. It also comes in an SPF 50 and SPF 70 strength, which I will be using on the beach.

2. Hard Candy CC Correction Creme - $8.00
This multi-tasker moisturizes, primes, color corrects, brightens and evens skin tone plus protects it with a broad spectrum SPF 15. I use Medium and it makes my skin just look better; softly airbrushed. It's perfect for "no makeup" makeup days or for those who don't need to wear foundation.

3. Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Eye Cream & Lash Serum Duo - $24.99
This is one of the smartest duos I've ever seen. It's like a double sided mascara, except one side is an eye cream and the other a lash serum. The eye cream smoothes lids, softens lines and makes the whole eye area brighter overall. The lash serum nourishes lashes. I'll never forget to apply my lash serum at night again.

4. Maybelline Eye Studio 2-in-1 Glossy Liquid Liner - $7.99
This genius eye liner lets you control the thickness of the liner by simply rotating the wand a 1/4 turn. It can draw on a precise thin line or dramatic or cat eye with ease. It comes in a fun array of colors to suit every mood too.

5. Sally Hansen Salon Effects French Mani - $12.99
These real nail polish strips make it super easy to get a salon perfect french mani every time. They are not your average french manicures either. Salon Effects French Mani strips are colorful and even a bit blinged out. I love Silver Lining with it's silver glitter tip.

Have a beautiful weekend!
