I am going to do the typical thing and start my post by saying I can't believe we are half way through the year. Where does time go? Reflection aside we are here to talk beauty and that is what we will do. This June was a hot ass month! To make matters more steamy our air conditioner broke so this month really embodied healthy skin and minimal makeup.
Minimal, hot-weather chic is just a glamorous way of saying it was so hot my mascara was running down my face. Now on to my faves!
EOS Smooth Stick
With it's smooth texture the EOS Smooth Stick is everything I wanted the original EOS lip balm to be. My whole review (here) I did earlier this month ended up being a comparison. With that being said when a cult product gets out shined by another I feel like a good comparison is due. So if your on the market for a buttery, hydrating and inexpensive lip balm this is one to check out.
Ren Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask
There are products out there that make me so excited I'm at a loss for words and Ren's Radiance Renewal Mask is that kind of product. If you were looking for a mask that gives you clear, healthy, bright, luminous looking skin in ten minutes you need to give this a try.
Actually this product is so good it really deserves a review of it's own.
Also... see I'm getting ramble-y here. I'm not telling you how to spend your Sephora Beauty Insider points but if you wanted to try this many Sephora's have these as 100 point perks. Embarrassingly I now own 4 of these sample tubes.
Hermes Le Jardin Apres La Mousson
I love full boded fragrences during cooler months, but in the heat of the summer I am more of a body splash kind of girl. While there are some great offerings out there at affordable prices I have to say now approaching my 30's I crave a luxe body splash... Hello, Hermes! Le Jardin Apres La Mousson, smells a cucumber melon scent that meets a spice market. The overall effect is a fragrance that not only fits summer perfectly, but something slightly more refined then your typical body mist.
A must have ladies especially if you were a fan of Bath and Body Works Cucumber Melon scent growing up.
John Frida Sea Waves
The last thing you want to do when your air conditioning is broken is blow dry your hair. So what is one to do? Salt Spray! Without heat John Frida's Sea Waves creates some seriously stunning hair. Dare I say my long hair even looked slightly mermaid-ish! The thing that I like the best about this product is it literally takes no time at all, a couple of spritz to the hair and a little crunch and your done. In comparison to come higher end beach sprays I've tried this one is definitely comes out on top.
A non makeup favourites that included beach spray and body splashes... summer is here people! I hope all of you enjoyed your long weekend. Feel free to let me know what some of your favourites are in the comment section below.
