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.

3 steps to be exact. I’m crazy about Naisture’s 3 step skincare kits. These are perfect for travel, an overnight, or any evening you want to pamper. I have used both the Exfoliating and Recharging lines. The exfoliating one comes with a cleanser, a peeling pad, and sleeping mask moisturizer.  The cleanser deep cleans, the peeling pad uses AHA’s, Tiger Cica Extract, and Blueberry Extract to remove dead skin and any left over grime. The sleeping mask plumps and nourishes to get you ready for your glow up by morning. The Recharging packet has a cleanser, sheet mask, and moisturizer. The cleanser uses Rice, Grapefruit, and Licorice Extracts. The sheet mask has cactus, Tiger Cica, and Honey Extract. They Hydro Moisturizer deeply moisturizes with Allantoin, Camellia Extract and Pine tree extract. So get with Naisture’s 3 step kits for better skin, by tomorrow.

This month I have discovered two cleansers that are instant favorites. I was impressed with both on first use, and will continue to buy them both. I am crazy about Indie Lee’s Brightening Cleanser. This gentle, foaming, cleanser completely removes makeup and dirt without drying out your skin. It is made with Strawberry Seed Oil, hydrolyzed wheat protein and Tomato extracts. You can leave it on for 5 minutes to use as an exfoliating mask. Skin is left brightened and softened. I am a huge fan of this brand in general. Every product is made from high quality ingredients that blend the best of nature and Science. The second cleanser I’ve gone crazy for is Bare Minerals Pure Plush Gentle Deep Cleansing Foam. Just a pea sized amount provides enough lather to deep clean your entire face. It uses mineral rich sea salts, rosemary, and elderflower to brighten and refine skin. This cleanser even removes my eyemakeup. Both of these brands deliver instant results. So get dirty, to get clean again…

whatever it is let Curology work on the cure. I am extremely happy with my skin at the moment. I have been using Curology’s face wash, customized serum, moisturizer, and body wash. It is a very simple service to use. They develop customizable serums to fight whatever your individual concerns are. The ingredients are medical grade and at your needed level. You just snap a few pics on your cell and answer some questions on their site. They use your pictures, lifestyle, and goals to create exactly what you need. If you are not satisfied with your current routine, I recommend trying this system out. So get a unique formula from Curology, because you’re not like anybody else ;)…

The Body Shop’s Tea Tree 3 in 1 Wash Scrub Mask is a great multitasker for your skincare shelf. You can use it as a face wash/scrub, or a mask.  It is designed to help with blemishes and excess oil. I used it as a mask and was surprised by how fresh my skin felt. It felt like I had a deep cleaning in 5 minutes. My pores were clean and my skin had a toned glow. Their organic tea tree oil is Community Trade from Kukoka Ardhini. So clean and mask your skin with this Body Shop treat, and check out the rest of their tea tree line.

for clean and soft skin. I’m on my third bottle of Formula 10.0.6 Smooth Me Over Moisturizing Body Wash in Grapefruit and Coconut. It smells amazing, and gives major lather. It is designed to not strip skin of natural moisture. The Grapefruit nourishes while the tropical coconut hydrates. This is from a great small company that has been in business for 87 years. It’s a very affordable line. I get it at Ulta, and you can shop their website as well. So get with Formula 10.0.6. and maybe share it with someone else ;)….

about Buzios? Buzios skincare is a Brazilian line that is all about the glow. They believe in a 2 step skincare ritual for plumped dewy akin. Step 1 is a cleansing, detoxifying, exfoliating cream. Step 2 is a hydrating, moisturizing all over serum.  I have been using their cleanser, Bare Skin. For me I like it as my first step in my double cleanse routine. Therefore I use it a bit differently than directed. It has natural retinol, antioxidants, and 5 amazonian super foods in it. I love how it removes dirt and makeup while leaving my skin enriched. You can remove it with a cotton pad or damp microfiber towel. So get that Brazilian beauty glow, and go bare….

my new body scrub from Olive+M. “Olive+M was created from the belief what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in your body.” It is a clean beauty line, where every ingredient used plays a role in the efficacy of it. The plant based oils in their formulas work to balance out oil production without stripping skin of its protective barrier. Olive oil resembles the molecular makeup of our body’s natural oils therefore it penetrates quickly and to the deepest level. The Body Polish also uses mineral rich sea salt to detoxify and exfoliate. It has a subtle scent of sweet orange and geranium. So get you Olive on with Olive+M and be healthy inside and out…

with Shalia Botanicals. This product line has treats for every part of you. These small batch CBD infused products are designed to create total wellness, inside and out. I have been using their Old Fashioned CBD Tincture and Vibrant Face Wash. I take the CBD at night before bed to help relax and ease into sleep. This particular one is aged in authentic Kentucky Bourbon Barrels. It literally tastes like an Old Fashioned cocktail. The Organic Vibrant face wash is gentle and effective. It is designed to clean, hydrate, and create a healthy microbiome to your skin. So get with Shalia Botanicals and bring the zen inside and out…
