hydrate, protect, and prime with Lancome’s new UV Expert Sunscreen Aquagel Defense spf 50 Priming Moisturizer. I love this product. It has become my go-to daytime moisturizer. It is an oil free, lightweight, deeply hydrating moisturizer. No need to layer extra sunblock, because this has you covered with spf 50. Your skin is left with a matte base that acts as a perfect primer. I got mine in an influenster box, and I’m so glad I did. This is definitely something I will purchase again. It is made with Vitamin E, Moringa and Edelweiss. The aquagel texture turns into a water like, blendable gel that absorbs quickly. So get with this Lancome do it all, and do a little less this summer….

Arilan_Skincare_Oxygenating_Mask_1062326_copy_540x
Arilan Skincare was created by one of the best estheticians in L.A. All of her products are paraben free, cruelty free, and vegan. I have been using the Oxygenating Mask. It is designed to hydrate and cleanse all skin types.

So get with Arilan and breathe new life into your skin…
