It was a beautiful day in Kansas City today! Over 50 degrees and sunny, so my family and I went to the Kansas City Zoo. I sure got my FitBit steps in today and am feeling great! The products that I am loving this week include a drink to help give me energy, a fantastic pedi tool, a moisturizing body butter, hydrating face powder and capsules to make my skin glow.
Zantrex® SkinnyStix® Berry Fusion ($29.99 for 21 stix and bottle) — For increased energy, mood elevation, heightened stamina and improved focus, adults mix entire contents of 1 SkinnyStix packet in 16 fl. oz. of water and drink or sip as desired. For powerful appetite control and weight loss, adults mix entire contents of 1 SkinnyStix packet in 16 fl. oz. of water and drink the entire serving 15 minutes before main meals. Do not exceed 3 SkinnyStix per day. Use in conjunction with any sensible diet and exercise program. Individual results will vary. What I think: I have started to eat better and exercise more this year, and like drinking one of these a day to help give me energy and boost my mood. It does work for me. But, I cannot take more than one a day, because I am a bit sensitive to caffeine. I also make sure that I only drink half-calf or decaf coffee when I have a SkinnyStix.

Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder ($49 USD) — It’s the first anti-aging powder with the science of skin care built in! This advanced formulation of pure gold, 48 minerals, 11 amino acids and a powerful peptide delivers dynamic anti-aging benefits, while the patented hydration system continuously revitalizes skin for a brighter, more radiant complexion all day. For the perfect amount of fresh powder every time, simply twist the shaver, swirl brush into powder and apply to face. What I think: I love this powder! I have been using it over my foundation to set and to add extra coverage. It applies so smoothly and melts into the skin, but does not settle in to pores or lines. I have it in light, which is the perfect match for my skin. I am going to try it without foundation when the weather gets warmer. I think it will work well as a lighter foundation. Available at http://www.smashbox.com and fine beauty stores.

What I think: I have been using these little oil capsules at night in place of my serum. They sink into the skin well and in the morning my skin is glowing.
