These are a few of my must-have products that I’ve been loving this summer!
During the summer months I spend a lot of time by the pool or at the beach, and I don’t like doing a full face of makeup when I’m probably going to sweat it off anyway. The Garnier BB Cream Skin Renew for Oily/Combination Skin is a perfect substitute for my regular foundation. It gives enough coverage to hide my imperfections, while improving my skins blotchiness, dullness, and overall clarity. It also has SPF 15 in it which is just enough to help keep my face from getting too much sun.
My new favorite sunless tanning product is the Venetian Sunless Mouse by Norvell. Unlike most self tanners which use either a green or red base in their solution, this product uses a violet base so it appears much more natural looking when applied, and doesn’t give you that awful orange fake-bake look! It also doesn’t have a super strong odor to it like most do, and the mouse has a dark guide color to help you apply it evenly. I use a Sunless Applicator Mitt which helps give a more even and flawless application and helps prevent the solution from staining your hands! I normally apply 2 heavy coats all over, and it’s the perfect shade for me! I recommend you start out with 1-2 coats and then let dry for a couple hours before you apply another coat, this way you can control how dark you want to be.
Sometimes sunless tanning can make your skin appear dry or flakey, especially when it’s starting to fade. To help keep my skin hydrated and glowing all day I have been loving The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter and for my lips the Coconut Lip Butter. The scent just screams summer, and it’s packed with virgin organic coconut oil for ultimate moisture. I like applying mine right after my shower, or before bed and it just melts into the skin, and does’t leave you feeling greasy what so ever!
And lastly…. drum roll please… The Whitening Lightning Color Your Smile Lipgloss in the shade Coral Craze! These lip glosses have become very popular lately, and now I know why. I sadly only own two shades right now, the Coral Craze and Nude which is their top seller. I’m a sucker for cute packaging on products, and these glosses come with a built in L.E.D light, and a mirror on the side of the container so you can apply your lip gloss literally anywhere. Besides that, the formula is amazing! I have very dry lips that constantly peel and crack, so I normally hate wearing lip glosses but these have changed my life! They’re super pigmented, buttery, and not sticky at all, so no more getting your hair stuck in your lipgloss, which is not cute!
