We have had a pretty hot week here in Kansas City, but it is finally cooling down a little, yay! I am still trying out new summer products to help me with the heat.
This week, I have been enjoying a facial cleansing oil, a gorgeous makeup up palette inspired by a new film, a refillable brush for my favorite powders, natural dental hygiene products, crunchy dried fruit snacks, and a cooling face cream.
NUDE Skincare Perfect Cleansing Oil ($35 USD) — This omega-rich oil deeply cleans and removes all impurities, including eye makeup. All-natural plant oils, including meadowfoam and jojoba, support skin health and hydration. Skin is left radiantly clean, comfortable and soft.
What I think: This is so healing on my parched summer skin. I like to use this oil at night to remove makeup and restore my skin’s natural balance. I feel that the heat, sweating and being in the sun makes my skin feel really uncomfortable. This not only removes all dirt and makeup, it leaves skin soft and definitely not greasy!

Pur Minerals Jupiter Ascending Collection ($29 USD) — This has just landed at ULTA Beauty from Pür Minerals. They have created an exclusive, limited edition collection for the highly anticipated film, Jupiter Ascending starring Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum.
The collection is designed to help you achieve the flawless on-screen looks with:
- Eye Shadows: Six stunning shades of shadow from subtle neutral to dramatic shimmer help you get Jupiter’s striking look. The talc-free eye shadows come in matte, satin, and metallic textures for a wide range of looks from day to night.
- Galaxy Lip Gloss: Housed in futuristic light-up packaging, the iridescent pink gloss comes with a built-in touch-up mirror for beauty on the go.
- Space Eyeliner: This liquid precision eyeliner in inky black features a user-friendly felt tip for easy application. Get sharp, clean definition for flawless eyes with this daily must-have.
What I think: This is a gorgeous makeup kit! My daughter was going out for her 19th birthday with friends and used the eyeliner and shadows to create a dramatic look. She loved the color payoff of the shadows and said that the liner was easy to use. I kept the awesome lip gloss for myself. The pale, sheer pink is one of my favorite lip color looks. And it lights up as you use it. Cool!

Korres Greek Yoghurt Advanced Nourishing Sleeping Facial ($45 USD) –A centuries-old Greek remedy for skin soothing, moisturizing Greek Yoghurt provides a natural source of proteins, minerals, and vitamins to instantly nourish stressed, dry skin. This ultrahydrating facial-in-a-jar contains a Greek Yoghurt concentrate with two and a half times the protein content of regular yogurt, and works overnight to provide skin with intense, long-term moisturization and nourishment to create a smooth, even complexion. You will wake up to noticeable improvements in skin texture and more moisturized, refreshed skin.
What I think: This is such a great evening skin treatment! I apply at night after my serum, and when I wake up my skin feels fresh and so soft! I use it about every other night, but it is so gentle it can be used more often if you wish. Summer skin becomes so stressed and tired and this evens the skin tone and texture by morning.
