of hair oil. Typology, a brand I’ve written about a few times, has gotten into hair care. They have a variety of hair and scalp treatments to check out. My favorite of their haircare is the Nourishing Hair Oil, made with Argan and 5% Pequi. This rich oil is designed to “restructure the hair fibers and protect against heat. Hair is left soft, shiny, and controlled.” It can be used on both dry and wet hair. It is not greasy or heavy. It’s extremely hydrating, and I was able to let my hair airdry without frizz. So get with Typology and get into better hair…

with August & Monroe’s Calm Cream. August & Monroe was created by a makeup artist who personally suffers from sensitive, acned skin. This moisturizer is soothing and hydrating. The lightweight gel texture quickly absorbs and goes great under makeup. I recommend checking out the before & after pics on their website. I love the packaging. The bottle keeps product air locked and is refillable. The cream is fragrance free, paraben free, clean, vegan, and cruelty free. So get with August & Monroe and give your skin some zen….

with Biography Face Oils. They have four active oil blends designed to deliver real change to your skin. They are completely clean, vegan, and sustainable.

I’m loving Skinceuticals Triple Lipid Restore moisturizer. It is designed to restore the skin’s external barrier and support self repair. I found it to be majorly nourishing and hydrating. It will help to even out and improve overall radiance. It’s lightweight and fast absorbing.

I’m protecting my body at the beach with Neutrogena’s Invisible Daily Defense Lotion SPF 60+. I love the texture and smell of this sunscreen. It’s hydrating and formulated with antioxidants. It is quick drying and lightweight.

My new serum is StriVectin’s Super C Retinol Brighten & Correct Vitamin C Serum. I love the concept of a Vitamin C and a Retinol in one product. This lightweight serum brightens and firms skin, while smoothing fine lines and improving texture. It’s not sticky at all, and absorbs fast. It is perfect for layering under a moisturizer and makeup. 

Shine lip gloss with Patricia de Leon’s Sexy Shine Lip Gloss. I have it in Angel. It is the best feeling lipgloss I have ever used. It’s super light, and extremely silky. There is zero stickiness, or oiliness. I don’t feel the need to constantly reapply.  The line is vegan and cruelty free. So pucker up to PDL Cosmetics, and kiss the sticky, heavy, glosses goodbye…

you need to relax. I am loving this unique find. It is MegRhythm’s Gentle Steam Eye Masks. They come in Lavender, Citrus, and Unscented. I got mine from Ulta. This single use eye mask uses inovative technology to heat up instantly. The steam warms and soothes tired eyes, and aids in relaxation. It’s great for the bath, travel, or in bed. All you do is open the sealed pouch the mask comes in, and the heat starts. I think it’s a really nice hangover aid as well.  So get with Megrhythm, and don’t let them know what you got into last night ;)….

I’ve added some additions to my beauty vanity this month. Summer means skins, and here’s how I’m taking care of mine;

At night I’m washing my face with Peter Thomas Roth’s 3% Glycolic Solutions Cleanser. It is anti-aging & exfoliating. It removes my makeup and any excess oil. The Glycolic Acid shrinks pores, improves clarity and reduces fine lines. 

For day and night Eye Cream I’m using Park Perfection’s 2 in 1 Instant Eye Lift. It’s designed to tighten and lift the eye skin while reducing wrinkles and puffiness. It uses minerals, peptides and antioxidants to balance and enhance skin around the eye. 

I was overdue for a new foundation brush. I am very happy with NYX Cosmetics Total Control Drop Foundation Brush. It’s designed for liquid but i’ve used it with my powders as well. It blends perfectly. I love that is it angled to get around every curve of your face. 

I am obsessed with Macadamia Professional Nourishing Repair Oil Spray. It’s officially summer, which means I’m not drying my hair. I let it air dray and then add this spray for a finished look. It has an ultra fine spray and instantly adds shine, moisture, softness, and uv protection. It says to use on wet hair, but I’ve been using it on both wet and dry.
