new beauty finds. Here’s what I’m getting into this month…. I found a great, fast working, hair mask from Pureology. It’s their Strength Cure Superfood Treatment. It’s a fortifying mask designed to strengthen and smooth split ends while preventing further damage. It uses Olive Oil, Goji Berry, and their signature aromatherapy blend. I’ve never had a bad experience with Purology and this mask does not disappoint.

For my skin I’m using Peach & Lilly’s Wild Dew Treatment Essence. This hydrating post cleansing step will improve skin’s radiance while fighting acne. It sinks deep into skin fast, to leave your face ready to drink up your next step. It contains lotus extract, niacinamide, yeast ferment, adenosine, bamboo extract, and radish leaf. It is refreshing and effective.

My latest makeup additon is Essence’s Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara. I love how small the brush is small to get the perfect application. It has tiny fibers to fill in caps and create fuller more tamed defined brows.

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….

It has an overall brightening effect, and is effective against acne. It is designed to help improve the epidermal barrier of your skin.

mineral sunscreen powder. Nourisee skincare has created the best version with 90% active sunscreens. I had not tried a powdered sunscreen before so I wasn’t expecting much. I was amazed with the coverage and look of this product. It is as much a great foundation as it is sunblock. It is waterproof, with an spf of 50+. This long lasting, high coverage sunscreen gives you complete protection, with a flawless look, all without chemicals. With every shade offered they also send both a lightening and darkening powder to adjust the color to your perfect match. So get out there for some fun in the sun with Nourisse, but always use protection ;)…..

broad spectrum sun protection is here thanks to Skinnies Sungel. This sunblock is a soft, spreadable, gel, that goes on clear and dries fast. Their “organogel” technology allows the product to go on clear and feel amazing. There is no water in the product like other sunscreens, so you only need very little. The lack of water also means you don’t have to reapply. I also love their Cleansing oil. It removes sunscreen, makeup and impurities. So keep your skin soft and clean with Skinnies, and let them touch…

Zinc it Over, Sunscreen Facial Mist. This is one of my favorite finds of 2018. It is designed to use over makeup, so it’s easy to reapply as often as needed. It will also help set your makeup. I use the Citrus Passion, which is a natural fragrance oil blend of Lemon Sugar and Passion Fruit.  It is super sheer, hydrating, and suitable for all skin types. It’s Reef Safe and NO has no white residue. This Non-Nano zinc oxide provides Broad Spectrumm spf 25. Zinc it Over is cruelty free, vegan, non aerosol, fast absorbing, chemical free and refreshing. So defend your skin with Zinc it Over, never forget protection…..

out there in the sun. I have been using Love Sun Body, because it is 100% natural, Reef Safe, and Vegan. This natural mineral sunscreen is obtained from plant based ingredients. It is broad spectrum and safe for children. It meets the European standards which are higher than America’s FDA. My favorite is the lightly scented tiare & vanilla spf 50. So stay safe with Love Sun Body, and maybe ask someone hot to get your back…;)

I’m obsessed with Screen from Gr8Skn. It is an Spf 30 UVA & UVB sunscreen specifically designed for teenagers. It’s great for me because I have oily skin and I can’t deal with heavy sunscreens. The line uses no chemicals, and is full of anti-oxidants. It is extremely lightweight and has a watermelon scent. I love the website because they break down every ingredient in the product and why it is there. It is perfect under makeup as it hydrates without greasyness. So get with Gr8skn, because unfortunately the craziness in skin and life doesn’t stop when you hit 20.
