Monthly Mania- Summer Edition
There's no time like Summer Time!! Here are some things that I am loving for Summer!
First and foremost; Sunscreen!
- Neutrogena Clear Face Sunscreen $10 - This is the ONLY sunscreen I can use on my face without causing a breakout or dealing with clogged pores. Helioplex provides UVA and UVB protection. This liquid lotion is so comfortable to wear, water light, non-greasy, and has a matte finish! A great product to use everyday under makeup. This comes in an SPF 30 and SPF 50 and can be found just about anywhere.
- Banana Boat Ultra Defense Sunscreen $7- A great, lightweight sunscreen that has Aloe,Vitamin A & E. Super hydration and water resistant up to 80 minutes! Great to use every day! Warning: This lotion can be a bit on the liquid side so use caution when putting it on.
Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm $34 (mini $14)
This is my go to, no make up look, beach day must have! Broad spectrum SPF 20 provides you with extra sun protection. Now, unlike most BB's , this product doesn't provide coverage; instead, it diffuses light for a natural look. Great alone or as a primer. It is a bit on the expensive side so I tend to stick with the mini and last be a few months.
Loreal Infallible Pro Glow Foundation.$11
So if you caught my review of this product you know I am loving this foundation! (click here) Normally, I wear Kat Von D Lock- It Tattoo Foundation, Sometimes I don't want a foundation that thick. For this, I use this Loreal Foundation. It's super light- weight, comfortable to wear, and lasts through the hottest of days! Most 'drug stores' sell this as does Ulta. I have found the cheapest price at Wal-Mart.
Urban Decay De-slick setting spray Full Size $30, Travel $14
This is great to use to make sure your makeup stays flawless! Feeling a little shiny? Spritz some of this on it's so cooling and refreshing and helps to keep oil at bay!
Okay, these products are always on my favorite lists! I LOVE THEM SO MUCH! The eyeliner is truly waterproof and is super pigmented! Tattoo Brow is great for natural brow look without worrying about it coming off. Both of these are great for days by the pool or beach!
Another great waterproof product. Great mascara for flawless beautiful lashes! It lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts & separates. Comes in Black, Brown and Blue.I actually ran out of mine, I use it so much, so this picture is from Sephora :)
Maybelline Baby Lips with SPF 20
Lipbalm with SPF is a great thing to wear everyday to help protect your lips from harsh UV rays. I love the baby lips line but this one is my favorite. It smells great, like lemon, without being overpowering and protect my lips from damage.
.Benetint is a great way to get those flushed lips and cheeks. It smells like roses and leaves your lips looking great. Works great as a cheek tint for a youthful appearance.If the price is a little steep, you can get the mini like I have here in a kit or in a 'try it' pack from Ulta.
Last but not least:
Bath and Body Works Cool Melon Kiwi Cooling Gel Lotion
Everyone loves to smell good and these are two of my favorite things! This cool Melon Kiwi cooling gel-lotion not only smells great but it cools you down! It smells super fresh and clean, feel great and moisturizing. Great for days out in the sun!
As most people who have seen my house can tell you, I have a small obsession with perfumes, so I was excited to find Sweet Crush by Calgon. Not only is the bottle super cute and easy to take anywhere, it smells AMAZING! Pink grapefruit and peach makes this super sweet and fresh!
