During the changing of seasons, skin tends to become dry and itchy. This is why a facial moisturizer should become your new best friend. Unlike a lot of other brands that go on sticky and irritate the sensitive skin on your face, Kiehl’s goes on smooth and soaks right in. This lotion will leave you with a nice glow for the rest of the day.
Looking for a faux summer glow? Try out Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil. It’s a body bronzer and oil with a little shimmer. Its got a non greasy finish and will keep your skin looking radiant day and night. It adds the perfect glow and works for every skin type.
I have always been intrigued by perfumes. I love how one scent can make you feel a certain way and that what smells good to one person smells terrible to another. I am constantly on the search for my next signature scent. For years I wore Betsey Johnson’s perfume and mixed it with some vanilla oil, though I feel I have outgrown this girlish scent Recently I fell in love with a new scent. You never know how long this love affair will last but for now I’m smitten with Joya’s Ames Soeurs Parfum –A Scent of Soulmates. I can’t even begin to tell you how it smells, it is warm sexy, and slightly sweet at the same time.
I have recently started using Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser and I can’t get enough. It’s a European facial cleanser with ingredients that include, Rosemary, Chamomile, Cocoa Butter and Eucalyptus Essential Oil. It leaves your skin feeling soft, clean and so refreshed which is especially important in this summer heat.
If you have curly hair, the humidity that comes with summer can definitely be a bummer. But not to worry! I have found an awesome curly hair styling cream. Deva Curl Styling cream, conditions, defines curls and is humidity resistant. I just started using it and I love it!
Well with the Guerlain by Emilio Pucci ‘Terra Azzurra Terracotta’ Lip Gloss in Indigo Blue, your teeth really will look whiter with the very slight blue tint of this yummy gloss. It goes on really smooth and tastes like grape candy! Glossy and smart… I like that.

One Cucumber Aloe Facial Paper Mask helps to sooth red and irritated skin with chamomile and aloe vera. All you have to do is put the contents of the packet on your face and let it sit for 15 to 20 mins. Your skin will thank you. I love this product because not only is it easy on your skin, but it’s also easy on your wallet!
Sunscreens (even the oil-free ones) always make my skin feel oily, but there is a new wave of skin protection for your face…Powders. These powders work like any old loose powder but they also protect your skin from the sun’s rays, how fab?

I started using this instead of my other every day facial cleanser and my skin has never felt better. CoalFace, a cleansing charcoal bar, is basically a good old fashion bar of soap….except it is infused with Rosewood oil that reduces redness and clears blemishes, and charcoal extract that acts as an exfoliator.
The Epicuren Kukui Coconut After Bath lotion, is to die for! You will look forward to using this lotion when you get out of the shower- it’s that incredible. It is supper moisturizing and the smell is perfection. This is definitely a beauty staple of mine. Having beautiful skin is a summer must!
