It was hard to pick five favorites for this post, but trust me when I say this... everything that goes into these posts is worth every penny. Being that I receive packages upon packages of new beauty loot daily, I can't possibly cover it all. So here I bring you my fave moisturizer, the body scrub that's keeping my skin fresh this summer, a breakthrough in hair styling and of course, some new nail products. Enjoy! I've been using Restorsea's Rejuvenating Day Cream and their night cream for quite a while now and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon. Even though the consistency of the day cream is a bit thicker than you'd expect for summertime, I'm not going to switch anytime soon. My skin's smooth and radiant. What more can a girl ask for?
Now this is innovative. Last week I attended an event for Color Wow and was amazed by their Brass Banned Correct & Perfect Mousse demo. There are two different colors; a purple mousse for blondes and a teal mousse for brunettes, which both correct brassiness. I've never before seen color correction in a styling product and am super impressed by the technology.
While it's called a body scrub, I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of suds it created. Nivea's Lathering Body Scrub feels luxurious. Normally when I use an exfoliant in the shower I always use a body wash afterwards, but that wasn't the case with this. It did both jobs really well. The microbeads are so tiny and gently and vitamin E even moisturizes as you pamper.
Julep's Freedom Polymere Top Coat is the perfect hybrid between a gel and regular clear polish. You swipe it on just like you would a clear top coat, but it's just a bit thicker and formulated with polymers that act like gel. Besides leaving your nails chip-free for about two to three days longer, the shine factor is covetable. I'm also kind of obsessed with their Nail Growth Revitalizing Serum. It's no joke.
My go-to mani color for the summer isn't coral for once! CoverGirl's Outlast Stay Brilliant Polish in Mint Mojito pops even against my alabaster skin and I'm sure will look great with a tan, too. Plus, it lasted a full week.
