Summer is in full swing and I am loving it. I’m really excited to be taking some time off to travel & spend some really nice vacation time with my family. We’ll be spending a lot of time on the beach, outside at the pool & just enjoying the sunshine, so I’ve made sure my favorites reflect the ripeness of the summer season. What I love about beauty rituals is that we can alter them ever so slightly based on the seasons and it feels really nice to swap out products based on the time of year. To me, summer beauty is all about skin care protection, managing the effects of the sun, having a really gorgeous glow, having a dose of warm-bronzey shades, staying hydrated and promoting a flawless, radiant complexion. Let’s get right into my five must have items for July...
This CV Skin Labs Rescue & Relief Spray is an absolute MUST HAVE for any family, especially during the hot summer months. It’s truly a miracle in a bottle and I find myself reaching for this SO often as a mother. It’s perfect to use on sun overexposure or any irritation from the natural elements, whether you have a sunburn, heat rash, wind irritation, allergic reaction, skin chafing etc. It’s going to instantly soothe any inflammation and take away redness on the spot. CV Skin Labs uses a unique Tri-Rescue Skin Complex in all of their formulations, which is a blend of anti-inflammatory turmeric, alpha-bisabolol & reishi mushrooms to calm & accelerate the healing process. The aloe vera & cucumber are ultra-soothing & calming to the skin, plus water lily, which helps to purify & remove heat. This is a product I always make sure to have on hand for beach trips, pool days & in my family medicine cabinet. Moms, trust me on this one.
I have been over the moon with excitement about these Roen Beauty eyeshadows since I discovered them and am so happy to now carry them for all of you to enjoy! I really LOVE all of the Roen palettes and I could honestly own every single one of them. They’re so easy to use and come with four stunning shades that are so versatile, buttery soft & blendable. Each palette gives you such a versatile range of shades that give you the option to create a variety of looks. They also make for the perfect on-the-go palette since they’re so compact. The Gold Lust palette contains four really beautiful bronzey tones and I opt for this palette when I want to do a more minimal, bronzed eye look. Summer months are the perfect time to get that rich, warm, bronzed-goddess look and these are the perfect shades to do so. These are super easy to swipe on the lids and I’ve been loving the Roen brushes, especially the All Over Eyeshadow Brush to blend the shadows out. I highly recommend refreshing your brush collection with these super fluffy & luxurious brushes, I’m such a fan! As with all of the Roen shadows, you get this really multidimensional shimmer effect that gives you this really elegant pop. I’m obsessed!
It’s one of those products that went to the back of my shelf for a moment and when I started getting in total prep mode for my vacations this summer, I was thinking about which products would give me a really flawless glow with very minimal makeup and this was the first product I thought of. This is such a unique skincare product that really gives you this gorgeous glass-skin effect. It helps you achieve a flawless base, removing any texture and just softening the skin like nothing else. It’s a powder formulation that you mix with water to create this crystalline solution that’s loaded with probiotics, electrolytes and sugars that work together to really regenerate skin cells. It targets dull, textured skin, rough patches, dark spots and enlarged pores. I can attest to all of this, as I can see and feel such a difference after just one use. I love to use this before a special event or night out because it gives you these really transformative results.
I use this every single day underneath my makeup and have been since it came out this year. It’s probably one of my favorite beauty launches of 2023 in terms of makeup. What’s really great about this is that not only does it give the skin this really beautiful, luminous glow, but it also works to infuse the skin with nourishing, hydrating ingredients that make it a multi-purpose, effective skincare product. There are antioxidants for protection, Vitamin D for elevating the skin barrier and Glutathione to help stimulate collagen production and cellular turnover. I especially love to use this under the eye area because of the light reflecting properties and I feel that it really gives me a luminous, youthful & bright effect and I can really see a difference.
I use the shade Spark, which is a light champagne color, that gives me a warm glow on my fair complexion. If you need a suggestion on what shade would be best for you, don’t hesitate to send us a DM or register for one of our free, 15 minute consultations here.
This new arrival is the PERFECT summertime scent. It’s such a sweet, intoxicating & sensual scent with peach, jasmine flower and even strawberry. It’s like nothing I’ve ever experienced in a fragrance. It takes you right back to the 90s with the delicious, juicy notes, but in this modern, sexy & of course, non-toxic way. It’s so fresh and just FUN for the summer months. It’s a limited edition scent so don’t sleep on this! There’s limited quantity available due to the specially curated ingredients. Enjoy!
