I don’t know about all of you, but here in Arizona summer is in full swing. While the weather continues to heat up, I’m really excited to step into the vibrancy & vitality of the summer months ahead. Summertime always has an element of playful joy, prosperity & pleasure… so I chose products that align with these high vibrational energies. With some very exciting new arrivals to newly reformulated tried & true favorites of mine, I’m excited to dive right into my top 5 favorite products for the month of June.
AYUNA, BALM [K]
First up, and possibly my most loved of the list, is the new Balm [k] by Ayuna. This is my new go-to mask for illuminated, rejuvenated & completely soothed skin. It has a creamy, silky clay texture that feels so luxurious when applied to the skin. It’s super soothing & repairing to the skin and reduces inflammation & redness, leaving your skin baby soft & free of any irritation. Unlike most clay masks which harden while they dry, this mask has such a gorgeous, smooth texture that stays flexible and soft, no matter how long it stays on, meaning it will not dry out the skin.
One of the star ingredients in the mask is Potassium derived from broccoli sprouts. The potassium helps to balance the pH of the skin, lock in moisture & repair skin cells. Tasmanian Pepper extract, which has become known as a natural form of lidocaine, works to reduce any signs of redness, instantly calming the skin. This mask leaves my skin absolutely radiant. It looks brighter, feels softer to the touch, and takes away any & all signs of inflammation & irritation which comes more easily in the warmer months. This is a mask that is beneficial to any and all skin types, which I love!
JANE IREDALE, GLOW TIME PRO BB CREAM
Next up is the reformulated Jane Iredale Glow Time Pro BB Cream which is back & better than ever with a gorgeous whipped texture. The creamy & easy-to-apply formula made me fall in love all over again with its many benefits. It’s a multipurpose protecting, hydrating foundation that nourishes the skin & with SPF 25. You can’t go wrong with this buildable, medium to full coverage product. It works on sensitive, blemish-prone skin as well as dry, mature skin because of its intensely hydrating, yet ultra-gentle formulation that gives the most luxe & blendable flawless coverage.
I love to finish this off with a sheer setting powder for the most long-lasting coverage, perfect for the summer heat. If you’re looking for something more full coverage and mattefying than a traditional setting powder, I would recommend the PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation. If you want a subtle dust of setting powder to refine your look while adding even more SPF, opt for the Powder-Me SPF 30 Dry SPF Sunscreen.

LEAHLANI MAHANA PERFUME OIL
Smell like pure warmth & liquid sunshine this summer with my recent favorite fragrance, the Leahlani Mahana Perfume Oil. I love the roll-on oil because it’s the perfect way to add a touch of elegance & sensuality on the go. Reapplication throughout the day feels like a beautiful little act of self care. Leahlani’s fragrance oils are created with organic coconut oil, aromatic essential oils & natural fragrances that entice the senses & transport you to a lush, tropical paradise. The scent of Manaha makes me think of rich, exotic vanilla beans & fresh coconut. It’s truly the perfect summer fragrance & also makes the perfect little gift!
KYPRIS, LIP ELIXIR BALM
Kypris’s latest launch is their decadent Lip Elixir Balm, a jasmine scented lip treatment that you can be worn as an overnight lip mask or throughout the day on top of your favorite lipstick for that extra enrichment. It wraps the skin in beautiful plant stem cells & peptides to really boost your lips’ hydration, nourishing & nurturing the delicate lip area. If you know me, you know how much I love jasmine, and this lip treatment absolutely does the trick for me. It smells DIVINE and I love to use this as a luxurious treat at the end of my evening bedtime ritual. It leaves my lips baby soft, hydrated & plump.
AGENT NATEUR, HOLI (BATH)
Agent Nateur’s Holi(bath) is back & better than ever with a brand new formulation & gorgeous new packaging. This opulent bath powder is ultra-elegant, ultra-luxurious & gives you all the goddess vibes. It’s made of a soothing & hydrating blend of beautiful plant extracts, coconut milk & now rose! The nourishing blend calms & soothes any irritation while replenishing & rejuvenating the skin. Magnesium & natural minerals work to calm the body from head to toe for the ultimate spa-like experience in the comfort of your own bath. It also relieves any muscle tension and what I love most is that it doesn’t leave a mess in the bath! It’s the perfect way to indulge, so give yourself a moment of much needed self care while honoring yourself and your body in the highest & most luxurious way.
I know you will absolutely love these new product launches & must have summer items. This June I am sending you a huge boost of healing vibrations, positive energy & wishing that you experience some beautiful moments with your friends & family. Make sure to take some time for yourself to replenish, rejuvenate and bask in the luxury that we call life. Enjoy the sun, soak up the Vitamin D and nourish yourself–mind, body & soul. You deserve it. Till next month!
