Earth Therapeutics Loofah Exfoliating Scrub: Oatmeal and Honey///Jergen's Natural Glow///Victoria's Secret Fragrance Mist:Surfside///The Body Shop Radiant Highlighter///Benefit's Roller Lash Mascara///Anastasia Brow Wiz: Medium
The humid heat is upon us in the Midwest, and the sunshine is streaming down on us sweaty betties everyday! Yes, summer is here and I have another list of happy and pretty things that I've decided are my faves this season. We still have a ways to go before Fall comes( ugh, just writing the word " Fall " gives me a shudder. I am so not ready for cold weather yet! ) but I know that I will be using these products even after the heat leaves us. Let's get to it, shall we?
Earth Therapeutics Loofah Exfoliating Scrub: I love this body scrub! I got mine at TJ Maxx, but I'm pretty sure that you can get it at ULTA, or even your local CVS! Pretty affordable, and best part, it smells soooo delicious. I rub this all over in the shower before I know I will be shaving or putting on tanning lotion. The oatmeal softens the skin and the honey just smells amazing. If you're looking for a nice body scrub, that isn't ridiculously overpriced, and smells like magic, don't hesitate and seek this one out!
Jergen's Natural Glow Moisturizer: I'm pretty sure I have talked about this gradual tanning lotion before on here, and that's because I've used this baby for years! It's the best one I've found for my super pale skin, and I feel like anything tanner than a natural glow on me looks kind of crazy. This lotion gives me a nice subtle color, and as long as I exfoliate before I put it on, it goes on smoothly and evenly. It dries fairly quick, and it also used to have a rather off putting smell, but they have since improved it, and it's not as strong as it was before. Definitely a good buy for you paler girls who don't want to look like you've turned into an Oompa Loompa overnight.
Victoria's Secret Fragrance Mist in Surfside: Back in junior high, I was all about the VS Perfume! And it turns out, after a slight hiatus from them, I still love them! This one is the fragrance of passion fruit and driftwood, but uhhh, you know I don't really smell driftwood in this, haha. It smells a lot like apples to me, and it also sort of smells like a sea salt spray I have and that I used while on my honeymoon, so it reminds me of Cancun. This fragrance just makes me feel sexy, and it takes me to a place in my mind that I can imagine I'm lounging on a beach...Perfect for summer.
The Body Shop Radiant Highlighter: OMG, this highlighter is so awesome! It gives a very pearl-y finish to my skin, without making me look oily. It has the consistency of a moisturizer or BB Cream, which I like because I usually have dry skin, and you can either tap it on under your foundation or over it. It will shine through either way. Sometimes I put this on by itself, and I still feel like I have a full face on. It just brightens it so much!
Benefit Roller Lash Mascara: I totally got sucked into buying this from hearing basically every beauty vlogger talk about how awesome it was. Aaaand they were right! I would say the brush is what is best about this product. It separates my lashes perfectly and adds a lot of length as well. At around $20 it's not the most budget friendly, but if you want a mascara that lengthens your lashes, and curls them even without using an eyelash curler first( this is a big YAASSS for me ), I would say this is worth the money. Yet again, Benefit produces another great mascara!
Anastasia Brow Wiz in Medium Brown: I've used many brow pencils, trying to figure out how to make my sparse brows look as natural as possible, and a lot of the drugstore options have failed me. So, I knew that from how many people swear by this product, I would inevitably end up trying this in my quest for great looking eyebrows. IT'S THE BEST GUYS. Like, for realz. It doesn't smudge at all( which is great during the summer heat ), it matches the color of my brows perfectly, and the tiny applicator is wonderful for creating natural strokes that look like your regular brow hairs, so it looks amazingly natural. It was $21 at Sephora, and worth every penny. I don't see myself looking anymore for another brow product. BOOM.
I hope this inspires you guys to try something new in your daily summer routine! What are some plans you guys have for summer? Going anywhere tropical? If so, I am super jealous!
