It’s been a while since I’ve done a beauty post, so today I wanted to talk to you guys about some summer beauty products and a few not-so-often thought of daily essentials I’ve been using. I don’t think I’m alone on this one, but I’m really bad about shaving. The combo I’ve been using lately to get a close, longer-lasting shave is EOS shave cream and the Schick® Quattro for Women® TrimStyle®. Trust me – EOS shave cream is 100x better than any other shaving cream and the Schick® Quattro for Women® TrimStyle® is so handy because it has two sides. The combo of these two together cuts down on how often I have to shave ever week.
To nourish my hair I like to use Kerastase Elixir Ultime. It’s really the only hair product that I religiously use. For those days when I know my hair is going to turn into a poofball (thanks humidity) and there is no sense in smoothing or straightening, I’ll use a sea salt spray like this one from Bangstyle to give my natural waves some texture.
When I got back from Jamaica my legs were super dry and chaffed from so much sun and beach exposure. I like to use Prestiche Wonder Polish in the shower to scrape off dead skin and exfoliate my feet. I love how it feels (and smells) like wet sugar 😛
I’m getting sick of bright lipsticks so I’ve started using MAC Hue lipstick again. It’s a basic neutral, pale pink. MAC lipsticks are my favorite because they’re affordable (for being a high-end brand) and come in such a wide range of colors and finishes. For lip nourishment I like to indulge in Chanel Hydramax + Active lip care. I use it sparingly though since Chanel products are so pricey.
Last but not least – bronzers. I’ve actually never used St. Tropez self tanner before but I’ve heard many, many rave reviews so it’s on my must-try list. MAC bronzing powder in Golden has been a favorite of mine for years. It has just the slightest amount of shimmer and is matte enough to contour with on the face.
