I am writing this with the disbelief that June is over already. I have hardly made a dent in my after sun products, and have yet to get myself into a bathing suit. Summer is slipping away fast, so to cheer myself up, let’s talk about the things that rocked my world in June.
Micro Pedi: This has been a favorite since I purchased it, but this month has been especially great with this little device, as I replaced my roller head, and purchased the Micro Pedi Man refills. They are coarser than the ones they make for women, and all of them fit, no matter if you have the base made for women or men. I find it to be working faster, and just more efficient. I doubt I will purchase the women refills again, because when it comes to feet, softer is always better.
Shiseido Radiant Lifting Foundation: I have a full blog post on this foundation. It has become my absolute favorite, and I have been wearing it literally every single day. It provides full coverage, while giving you a dewy, hydrated look. For my readers who have dry skin, this is an absolute must have. For reference, I wear the shade B40.
Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster: When I first used this, I was a little skeptical, and terrified at the same time. (That’s totally normal when it comes to self tanners) This product gives me the smallest hint of color, which actually is just what I need. When I self tan, my legs and my face are the first to fade. (Shaving and my Clarisonic exfoliate my skin super fast!) So when my face is a little lighter than the rest of my body, I will throw three drops of this into my night cream, and wake up pretty evened out. This was one of those products that I didn’t know I needed, until I started using it.
Essence Silky Touch Blush in Babydoll: This blush was a total surprise to me. I was on the hunt for a nude blush, and when I saw this one, it was so cheap I couldn’t say no. I used it once, and actually have ben reaching for it almost daily this month. This was an awesome purchase for the price, and it lasts on my skin almost all day.
Alluring Aquatic Extra Dimension Bronzer in Aphrodite’s Shell: This was apart of a limited edition collection, so I’m not totally sure that you can still get it… But this bronzer works very well for me. It almost feels like a gel texture, and it never looks chalky on me. I have abandoned my NYC Sunny for this, and I couldn’t be happier.
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Misia: This product is a different shade for me, it is a definite coral, almost bordering on an orange. I always gravitate towards pink, or fuchsia, but this one just caught my eye, and although I am still getting used to it, I have worn this a lot this month. I love the Coco Shine formula, and this is a great color for summer.
Urban Decay Naked Skin Body Beauty Balm: I tried this product on my arm in store, and immediately put it in my basket. Sabah was shocked at how fast I made a decision, as usually I take roughly 6 months to commit to purchasing something. I have a weakness for body products, and while I didn’t expect this to give me the visible firming/tightening that my beloved Clarins High Definiton Body Lift does, it made my skin feel very cool, and gave me a shimmer that I always get compliments on. It smells like mint, so beware of that if you aren’t a fan, but I am loving this stuff.
Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel: This cleanser has been so well loved this month, and I am over halfway through it. It is so luxurious, and I look forward to using it at the end of a long day. I love cleansers that give you incentive to wash your face at the end of the night, because sometimes you need an extra push to get you to the sink.
