New Beauty Products - May 2022

May 3, 2022

Happy May everyone.  It's been a while since I've done a beauty blog post.  I've purchased some new beauty products that I'd love to share with you.

Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Hydra-Gel Eye Patches
A sales associate at Ulta Beauty suggested I try these eye patches.  These eye patches are used to moisturize your under-eye area.  I've never used these before and I decided to give them a try.  I use these eye patches for my daily morning routine.  For my daily morning routine, I usually leave these eye patches on for 15 minutes.  Afterwards, it leaves my eye area feeling soft and moisturized.  I asked my dermatologist about these eye patches and she said it's just another way of moisturizing the under eye area.😞  I'm not sure if I will be using these again.  

I saw these eye masks mentioned on Lindsay's blog.  They are only $12.39 on Amazon.  This is a HUGE difference in money compared to the ones by Peter Thomas Roth.  I am tempted to give these a try.

Have you used any eye masks?  If so which ones do you use?

Peter Thomas Roth Instant Firm Eye Temporary Eye Tightener
This is another eye product that I purchased after hearing good things about this product.  You apply this cream to your under-eye area and it temporarily tightens and firms your eye wrinkles.  I even applied a small amount on my forehead to smooth out some lines.  You need to get used to a tight feeling after applying the cream.  You also need to apply a small amount of this cream or you will notice some dry white cream in the eye area.  This is a temporary eye firm fix.   

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration Cream
I have very dry hands, especially during the winter months.  This hand cream from Sephora works great in softening my hands.

Maybelline Dream Urban Cover Foundation - Broad Spectrum SPF 50
I bought this broad-spectrum SPF 50 foundation at Walgreens.  It was only $13 and works great for a light coverage foundation with sunscreen in it.  This is a foundation product that I like and I will continue to replace it when needed.  This foundation is similar to the IT Cosmetics Foundation.  I found the It Cosmetics foundation to be a thicker consistency and pricier than the Maybelline foundation.  I usually use this light foundation in the spring and summer months. 

Lily and Fox Nail Wraps
I was on Instagram recently and I saw these nail wraps.  They were only $2.99 and so I bought five sets for only $15.  Lily and Fox even included a sample set for me to try out.  I like these cute nail wraps but they only stayed on my nails for about three days.  I will try them out again and hopefully, they will last longer than three days.  I applied them to one nail on each hand as an accent nail, being that it was my first time using these nail wraps. 

Olay Regenerist Advanced Micro Sculpting Cream
I recently bought this cream at Costco and you can see my Costco finds blog post here.  I've been using this face cream and I love the way it makes my face feel soft and smooth. 

La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum by Lancome
This perfume is favorite of mine and is available at Ulta Beauty.  It would make a great gift idea for Mother's Day. 

Have you tried any of these beauty products?

  1. Even though I know you aren't supposed to have to I like to put a clear coat of polish over my nail wraps as I feel like that helps that last even longer.

  2. I always enjoy reading about your beauty products, Julie!

  3. That's odd about the nail wraps. Mine usually stay on a few weeks. I haven't tried that brand, they have some really cute designs. I will check out some of your finds. I like the idea of the Maybelline foundation because I also use It Cosmetics foundation. I need all the help I can get with moisturizing and firming. Those eye patches sound great! Let me know if you try the Amazon ones. Thank you for sharing!

  4. Some lovely products there Julie, I have tried something like the eye tightener before but the product I used left a white residue around the edges and if you looked close you could see it on your skin, you couldn't wear make up with it either so I returned it. I'm always looking for a good hand cream my hands are always very dry too.

  5. You find the best stuff. The nail wraps are so great. I have used the Arbonne eye patches. I had a hard time with them making my eyes red. I usually stick with the Cerave products that my derm said are the best over the counter to use. I have had pretty good luck with all of them with no side effects and they work great. Have a great rest of the week and Happy Mother's Day. xoxo Kris

  6. I love Lily and Fox!! I have been using them for a while and yes, $2.99 plus free shipping is awesome! Mine last about a week, but I put them on at night and don't wash my hands until morning. Fun shares!!

  7. Oh, you have inspired me to clean out my cosmetics and try something new. Thanks for sharing, Julie !

    1. Thanks Ann, I'm glad I inspired you to clean out your cosmetics and try something new!

  8. I do use a Maybelline face product, but it’s not that one, Julie. I think you mentioned the one I use awhile back. I have tried the IT product in a small tube just to see, but I’m not crazy about it. I want to try the Olay cream when I get to Costco. The mail wraps would be fun to try out. Thanks for sharing your new products. Have a great week.

  9. The nail wraps are cute, that's a shame they didn't last long! I haven't tried any of these other products - I like the sound of the tinted sunscreen but I've tried so many tinted sunscreens and they all just break me out - so I'm sticking with my sheer one that doesn't break me out, as it's important to wear SPF here!

    Hope that you had a good weekend :)

  10. Thanks Julie for the inspiration. I have been wanting to try some nail wraps. I usually get gel polish on my nails. It would be fun to add a design.


Thanks for stopping by my blog and your comments always make me happy.
