Product Round-Up — My Fave Beauty Things Week of September 8, 2014!

We are a couple of weeks into September and it is cooling down and feeling like fall.  I am into pumpkin spice lattes, candy corn and… tropical fragrances! I guess I’m not yet ready to let go of summer.

This week I am loving a mini makeup applicator, a quick skin smoothing facial, yummy bath and fragrance products that smell like coconut, a tropical scented perfume and a fresh facial mist.

beautyblender® micro.mini

beautyblender micro.mini ($17.95 for two) — This makeup blender lets you perfect makeup application in the inner eye corners, brow bones, sides of nose, cheeks, and more. Designed with exclusive beautyblender® material and one fourth the size of the original sponge, these non-disposable micro.mini sponges are the perfect tool for concealing small areas. Simply wet them so that they increase in size so that you can highlight and contour your face and ensure less makeup waste.

What I think:  I love my regular sized beautyblender.  I use it for primer and foundation each day.  These micro.minis make applying concealer and highlighter so easy.  And they are too cute!

REN Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial

REN Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial ($48 USD) — Formulated with potent water-activated vitamin C, this one-minute facial gives immediate spa facial results, leaving skin firm, toned, and smoothed. It reduces signs of fatigue, photo-aging, and skin imperfections, and skin instantly glows with renewed health and radiance.

What I think: This is so easy to use.  Just apply it to a dry face, massage it in, add water that will activate the Vitamin C in the gel.  Leave it on a minute and rinse off.  Skin is so soft and firm!  I think I will use this once a week for younger looking skin.

What I think:  I know it’s almost fall, but I am still loving the scent of coconut!  I love to use coconut scented lotion all year-long.  The Pacifica kit lets you layer your coconut scent and the Desert Essence set is perfect for fall getaways.  Both smell amazing!
