My skincare and beauty products have nothing to do with what’s trending and everything to do with results. I am picky when it comes to what I use on my body and when I find something I love I usually buy multiples of it. Here are some of my “summer beauty favorites” and frankly why limit them to summer? I use them all year!
This is my newest addition to my beauty and health regimen. An ultralight, oil-free gel moisturizer with hyaluronic acid that plumps up skin without making it feel greasy or smothered. One of its’ key ingredients is Hyaluronic acid (a superhero in the moisturizing world, it can hold up to a thousand times its weight in water); fructan and trehalose (hydrate); and cranberry extract (boosts collagen). I always wonder what a product will smell like, especially wearing it on my face and I am extra sensitive to perfumes. This moisturizer bills itself as a gel, but there’s nothing sticky or goopy about it and it smells faintly of roses and feels like water going on! It’s truly a must for me now as part of my daily and nightly routine. Bonus, it’s free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates, this gel has the unique distinction of being both ultrahydrating and coolly refreshing just in time for summer!
Sephora Lipstick collection #lipstickstories is on my list because there are so many colors to choose from and the high-pigment, lightweight lipsticks provides full-coverage color in one swipe! Available in 40 shades and three finishes: matte, cream, and metal. My summer pick is number 24!
I am now convinced that no all-natural skincare routine is complete without Rosehip Seed Oil! When used on its own, this 100% pure Rosehip Seed Oil makes for a nourishing facial serum. The certified organic Rosehip Seed Oil is full of the vitamins and fatty acids your skin needs to stay healthy, moisturized and luxurious. These same nutrients provide anti-aging properties that help keep skin fresh and glowing. There is evidence that regular Rosehip Seed Oil use can help to fade acne scars and dark spots (and I have dark spots), as well as help to even the skin tone and soothe skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis. When I think of oil I think of break-outs and clogged pores. However, Rosehip Seed Oil is non-comedogenic, which means it won’t block your pores. This makes it a great choice if you suffer from acne. It’s also a “dry oil,” so it won’t leave any greasy residue on your skin.
This Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 Ultra-Light Fluid Face Sunscreen is amazing. I use this ultra liquid sunscreen fluid as a BB cream. I will not leave home without it! After pregnancy I started developing melasma, which only gets worse with sun exposure. This tinted sunscreen is my savior. It’s fast-absorbing fluid, non-whitening texture makes my skin feels hydrated with a matte finish. I apply under my makeup or wear without any makeup. This La Roche-Posay sunscreen is developed against stringent safety standards: Dermatologist tested, Tested on sensitive skin, Allergy tested, Paraben-free, Fragrance-free, and Non-Comedogenic.
I love this perfume and wore it the entire time I was in Jamaica. This Good Chemistry rollerball perfume is made with essential oils and gives just enough fragrance without overwhelming you. I have trouble wearing strong perfumes because they give me a headache and I the closest thing I wore to perfume before Good Chemistry was my hairspray! This rollerball has a light fragrance with notes of black currant, peony and amber. It’s so pretty and not overwhelming.
Let’s save the environment one step at a time. You’ve heard me talk about these toothbrushes before and here I go again! Almost 50 million pounds of plastic toothbrushes make it to our landfills every year. Let’s change that together one toothbrush at a time! Join me in the Bamboo Toothbrush Revolution and invest in a product that’s much safer for you and more sustainable for our precious environment. These bamboo (wooden) toothbrushes are far superior to other toothbrushes in every way, because the handle is Eco-friendly • Biodegradable • Recyclable • And Nontoxic. The head of the bamboo toothbrush is made of multiple charcoal black, nylon bristles that are extra soft, gentle, nontoxic and also BPA-free! These bristles are perfect for those with extra-sensitive teeth like mine. They are great for children and are super easy to travel with (cases are included).
