Summer vacations are about to start happening and a new summer look needs to happen too. Bring on the bangs!
Because of all the micellar water hype, I bought L’Oreal Micellar Biphase to try. In case you don’t know, micellar water is a gentle cleanser/makeup remover made up of soft water and micelle oil.
I used it for the first time and I love it. You can feel the oil when you first put it on, but then it disappears and your skin simply feels clean and soft. As far as removing makeup, it’s a thumbs up for that too.
There is also a surprising perk. It reduces the redness in my face. I cannot say enough good things about that!
My favorite hairstyle has been legitimized. Thank you Chanel!
NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee is the perfect soft gloss pale pink.
I’m probably late to the party on this one, but a foundation brush makes all the difference….especially for those of us that are make up challenged. BTW: It Cosmetics are awesome and PETA approved.
I’m just going to say it works.
When you find a product that really works, that intel needs to be shared.
- Smiths Lip Balm. If you’re looking for a lip moisturizer, look no further.
- Olia Hair Color. A hair color that really does cover gray. Hallelujah!
- It Confidence Facial Moisturizer. Awesome face creme for us sensitive skin/rosacea sufferers.
The Whats Underneath Project consists of short videos of women being interviewed while undressing “to honor how style is not the clothes you wear”. I’ve seen a few and they are ALL inspiring; however, Melanie Gaydos is beyond.
If you love the smell of Tuberose, you will love Gucci Bloom.
Here’s three products I’m loving.
Olema Rose Wine. So good and reasonably priced at $14.
Native Deodorant. Native contains no aluminum, smells great, and works better than any other deodorant I’ve tried.
Wanderlust, A Modern Yogi’s Guide to Discovering Your Best Self. This book provides a perfect introduction to yoga including workbook style prompts to help you be the best you.
My face is extremely sensitive to product. I know this because I have spent hundreds of dollars trying different face moisturizers only to have them all cause redness and irritation to my skin. So I finally decided to try an oil on my face, instead of a moisturizer.
I’ve been reading a lot about Argan Oil. Argan oil comes from a fruit tree (using the nut inside the fruit) found in Morocco and has been used for generations as a skin/hair moisturizer. It contains vitamins A and E, anti-oxidants and omega 6. Normally, I fear all natural skin products as they cause the worst reactions for me. However, the information on Argan oil says it helps with inflammation too. Not wanting to spend a small fortune again, I went to Target and found Acure Argan Oil for $12.99.
I have been using this product for about a week now and it has yet to cause any skin problems for me and my skin looks great. A little goes a long way. One pump of the oil is all I need for my face and neck. So if you have sensitive skin and are in need of a moisturizer, Argan Oil might be the way to go for you.
Trying face moisturizer tip: Put a little bit of the moisturizer on the back of your ear to see if it will cause a reaction. (Putting it on the wrist never worked for me)
