I thought I'd share with you some of my favorite beauty products that I'll use this summer and why I love them so much!
1.) I really love Organix Moroccan Argan Oil lotion ($8.00) that I found at Walgreens a few weeks ago. This lotion is made of all natural ingredients and smells amazing. It's a really great lotion for after you've been out in the sun all day and it really helps with some areas of dry skin I have. My skin seems to suck this up like water and I love that it smells like summer. For those of you who haven't learned about the benefits of Argan oil, I must share some facts with you because this stuff is pretty awesome.
When it comes to beauty, argan oil itself helps heal scars, helps prevent inflammation, protects against the sun and contains properties that are disinfectant. It contains a lot of vitamin E which helps prevent aging by preventing free radicals cause by pollution from penetrating your skin causing it to age quicker. It also helps prevent wrinkles! This also has benefits to your health as well. If you want to read more about it check out this article I found- Argan Oil Health Benefits. All in all, this oil is amazing for you internally and externally.
2.) Want your lips to taste and smell like lemon sorbet and still have your lips protected from the summer sun? BUY THIS! For those of you who read one of my first blogs, you know I love EOS lip balm. And I've tried almost every flavor at this point. I just recently bought this Lemon Drop EOS Lip Balm ($3.39)and I'm in love with it. This lip balm contains UVA/UVB protection, contains Shea butter, has an SPF of 15, is gluten free, Phthalate-free and all natural flavoring. It glides on smooth and unlike a lot of the SPF lip balms I've tried this one does not leave any white residue on your lips.
3.) More Expensive Waterproof Mascara
DiorShow Waterproof Mascara ($25.00 @ Sephora or department stores)- I really love this mascara because you can build it up without causing spider eyes (where it builds up and looks chunky on the eyelashes). It gives great volume and really makes your eyes pop. It comes in black, blue and brown.
Less Expensive Waterproof Mascara
Maybelline Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara. ($7.49 @ Walgreens or $6.99 @ Ulta)
This mascara gives instant volume and separation. It also doesn't clump up at all and is easy to build upon. Clearly I like any of mascaras with lots of volumizing properties to gives my eyes the pop they need without wearing a ton of eye makeup.
4.) My favorite nail polish this summer is Essie- Turquoise and Cacaos Nail polish ($8.00 at Ulta)
It's a beautiful turquoise color which looks almost the exact same color as a Tiffany's box. It compliments all skin tones that I've seen in on, including fair skin, olive skin and darker skin.
My other favorite lip gloss of all time is Chanel Glozzimer in "Pailetties" ($29.50) - This lip gloss is like putting velvet on your lips. You only need to apply it once or twice to get this pinky lip full of pink and blue glitters. This lip gloss is stunning on. It's long lasting and moisturizing and I like that you don't even need a lipstick color under it for it to stand out.
Thanks for reading!! HAPPY SUMMER EVERYONE! :)
