Summer Beauty Favorites
Typically in the summer I try to let my face/skin breath and skip on heavy makeup unless it’s a special occasion. I like to use bb or cc creams that provide light coverage and that evens out skin tone. I always opt for waterproof mascara because come on really, it’s a no brainer, it’s summertime. For bronzing i like a subtle very natural wash of color, no heavy contouring during the summer days. I try to use a lot of balm type of products when it comes to my cheeks, the powder products I feel will just wear away when I sweat or come in contact with water. However, you will see I have included some of my all time favorite products whether it’s summer or winter, hot scorching temps or freezing days, these are the products I can’t live without.
You will notice for my skin, I like products that produce results but at the same time protect and serve a purpose. Garnier has been a long time favorite brand of mine and I love the fact that they are very accessible and affordable. The products listed below have been used over time and have produced amazing results in my skin and well I just simply love them and I wanted to share them with you. The Micellar Water, especially the blue lid (made for waterproof makeup), has been a daily go to. Takes my makeup right off and I also like using it in the morning as a pick me up. The Cleansing Towelettes, are perfect for a quick refresh or just a pick me up. I like to use these if I’ve been sweating and need to feel refreshed (plus they smell great). I like to carry these with me as well when I go out.
If your interested in me possibly doing a post on my favorite Garnier products, let me know, I have tons. I could list their benefits and share my results and experience.
I need to also point out two products from Soap & Glory that to me are hands down a HOLY GRAIL must-have product for anytime in your life. Their Flake Away Sugar scrub has been a life changer for me. The grits of sugar are so fine and honestly scrub away every ounce of dry skin, the infused shea butter, leaves your skin so incredibly smooth. This scrub has also allowed me the most close shaving as well. My skin feels so awesome when I use this. Following up I use their Righteous Butter, thats infused with aloe vera and shea butter. I honestly have never used a more moisturizing lotion in my life. I wake up the next day and seriously I can still feel the moisture it has provided my skin. Also, the smell on basically all Soap & Glory products are AMAZING, the most refreshing clean scents, you definitely have to try this brand out if you haven’t already.
