is definitely Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Vanish. It is a color corrector that is designed to brighten under-eye’s and any other off colored areas. It works amazing alone, or underneath your under-eye concealer. It’s extremely lightweight and easy to use. I use my ring finger to tap and blend it into skin. Try this once, and it will become your new favorite.

is just a few steps away with Perfect Skin products from Christie Kidd. I have been using the Clean Natural Facial Cleanser on nights when I really need a deep clean. Makeup and grime are no match for this cleanser. It reduces oil, bacteria, and blemishes. It uses natural oils and plant extracts to get the job done. It gets a good lather and leaves skin feeling very clean. I used the Fresh Pads on my chest when I had a bit of a breakout. It cleared to nothing in two days. These exfoliating pads use Witch Hazel, Willow Bark Extract and Ginger Root to rid dead skin and blemish causing bacteria. I highly recommend checking out this line if you have acne, or occasional breakouts. 

To say I’m Obsessed with Vacation Sunscreen is an understatement. Their latest invention, Classic Whip SPF 30 Sunscreen Mousse is my favorite of the line. It is also my favorite body sunscreen I’ve ever tried. It is SPF 30 Broad Spectrum, water resistant up to 80 minutes, and fun. I have turned so many people on to this line and this particular product. Both Men and Women have commented on how amazing the smell is. I even have two friends that went and bought the Vacation Perfume after using this. It is unbelievably lightweight, and quickly melts into skin. I think all sunscreen should now come in a whip can. On top of SPF there is also Coconut Oil, Aloe Vera, Banana Extract, Shea Oil, and Vitamin E. Remember a little goes a long way. Its so fun to use, it’s easy to over spray. I’m praying to the Vacation Gods that they come out with an SPF 50 in this.

Butter London’s Champagne Fizz Manicure Candle Intensive Nail and Cuticle Treatment Candle is a great gift idea. The candle smells wonderful and has a pretty look to it. The “wax” is made of Soybean and Coconut oils and the wick is 100% cotton. I appreciate this as it does not add toxins to the air. The holder has a spout to easily pour the oil out. I dipped my finger in to the melted oil and dabbed it on each cuticle for an easier way to apply. The oils are hot but didn’t burn right after blowing out the candle. I would be cautious on certain body areas but on my hands it felt lovely;)

I love Antedotum’s Essential Daily Sunscreen. This hydrating facial sunscreen surpassed all expectations. It has broad spectrum SPF 30 UVA UVB and HEV protection. It is loaded with antioxidants to aid in skin’s look and feel. It goes perfect under makeup. It has a light color to it that blended perfectly with my skin. It is also fragrance free and reef safe. The hero ingredient they use is Aspen Bark Complex, which conditions and protects. The packaging is gorgeous enough to leave out on your vanity. As a Beauty Editor I am constantly sent free product. I have plenty of sunscreens in my beauty closet, however when this runs out I will definitely be repurchasing it. It is incredibly lightweight, and doesn’t feel like it clogs pores.

skin safe with Versed Guards Up Daily Mineral Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 35 protection. They really took care of every sunblock problem with this product. It is lightweight and absorbs fast. There is no white-cast at all. It has a peach tint to it, which almost gives a filtered look to the skin. The texture is silky and works great under makeup. I often forget I have it on because it is so comfortable. This sunscreen has UVA,UVB and blue light protection. It is recommended for all skin types including those that are acne prone. It has antioxidants, sea fennel and mooring seed extract. I feel the brand really used their skincare knowledge to give customers exactly what they want in a face sunscreen.

n skincare. I am confident in recommending Versed Moisture Maker Hydrating Hyalronic Serum to anyone looking to pick up a good HA. It contains Snow Mushroom and polygutamic acid. Polygutamic acid is said to hold 4 times its weight in water, and it’s bringing all that to your skin. This HA Serum has a gel like texture. A little goes a long way. The recommended amount is two drops from the dropper. You will press it into the skin, not rub in like a cream. Allow some time, around 2 minutes for it to absorb, and then follow with moisturizer. The Versed Vitamin C moisturizer goes perfectly with it. It is not sticky and does not negatively effect makeup. The price point is great for the quality it delivers. It is a 1oz bottle that seems like it would last a minimum of six months. 

with MD Pens’s Radiant Retinol 1% Balancing Complex. My skin took to it easily. I noticed an increased softness in my skin after one use. I applied it after cleansing and using MD Pen’s serum. It is thick enough to use as a night cream, but not heavy or greasy. It did not feel like it would be all rubbed off on my pillow. It was mostly absorbed and left a nice moisture barrier on my skin. This cream is not just a retinol but a great night cream that has antioxidants, niacinamide, probiotics, and prebiotics. I often use retinol, so I had no issues using this nightly for a week straight. Those with sensitive skin will want to go slowly and space out use.

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked Cosmedix PHA Hydration Peel. It is designed to exfoliate skin, while brightening your complexion. I noticed upon application a slight tingling sensation. Not like a burn at all, more like a lovely cooling “it’s working” feeling. It comes off easily with water. My pores looked tighter and my complexion looked even. It seemed to have lifted some deep in the skin issues to the surface (in a good way). The next morning I noticed soft skin, and a continued even complexion. Though it is said to be gentle enough for all skin types I recommend not following it with any strong skincare. Stick to hydrators and oils verse retinols and acids. It says to use at night so it likely makes your skin more sensitive to the sun.


Body moisturizer is so last year. That’s why I’ve been using B. Fresh’s line of body serums. These are perfect for the summer because they are lightweight and sink into your skin fast. I live in Miami so I’ll definitely be using them year round. The range covers the needs of hydration, exfoliation, brightening, and firming. The line is clean and cruelty free. I love how soft my skin feels with this product. No grease, just smooth skin.
