This week has been quite the doozy. I expected a quiet summer week to catch up on all sorts of things before taking a summer vacation. But I have gotten very little done. Note to self: use your weekend more wisely. I did have time to do some shopping and I cannot recommend this little summer shirt from J. Crew – it is so soft. Some other finds from around the web:
As the father of a beauty blogger, my dad knows full well to expect some skin care treats on Father’s Day. What surprised me most though was how enthusiastic he became about his “collection”. I think, like me, he appreciates the science behind the formulas. One of his favorite lines is Jack Black. And they have just the perfect thing for Dad this year.
All your guy or dad would need for a summer vacations. The products come in TSA-approved sizes. Free from parabens, sulfates, colorants and synthetic fragrance. Cruelty-free, vegan and dermatologist tested.
I was just having a fun makeup conversation with my mom, and we started discussing a favorite new product of mine. ‘The Sensual Skin’ Enhancer has quickly become a staple in my routine. I read about it somewhere as a “Best Beauty Buy” and it certainly is now the same in my book.
I adore this foundation, but I’ve needed some extra help around my eyes and covering my rosacea. This “enhancer” hides imperfections without looking like a concealer. The coverage is adjustable, and I like it mixed with Embryolisse Concentrated Lait Cream for a rather light coverage, but still with a dewy finish.
This little pot of pigment is highly concentrated. I have had mine for over a month and I have only used what was in the cap to the jar. This will last forever! This will be a crowd pleaser because it comes in an array of shades, has flexible coverage and gives a natural, healthy finish.
A brief check in this Wednesday – the long weekend has me a bit off kilter. Yesterday, I was totally exhausted. Doesn’t seem to make sense after an extra day of rest. After a nap and a little walk yesterday, I am like a new woman. Hope you guys are having a great week!
We are almost to the end of Melanoma Awareness Month and I couldn’t let it slip by without a friendly reminder for sun safety. I have Melanoma in my family and strive to wear sunscreen all the time. I also go for yearly skin checks from my dermatologist. One of the brands I often turn to when pool weather comes around is Shiseido. Not only are they great for active coverage but everyday use and specialty protection. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends these Shiseido products.
This water-friendly SPF becomes even more effective on the applied area when exposed to water for 15 minutes. It also helps a ton with dryness – my beef with hot summer weather. It is high, effective protection without feeling heavy.
How unique! I had never heard of an eye SPF, but I am in. This is part of my new, everyday summer routine. The rich formula protects and minimizes the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It also fights dryness and adds a radiant finish – something I definitely wouldn’t mind around the pool or at the office.
It is almost Memorial Day Weekend and there are loads of sales out there. But one of my favorites of the year is Nordstrom‘s Half-Yearly – such an easy way to shop online (and right now packed with deals). Thought I’d pop in tonight while I watch some basketball and share some of my picks. Happy Shopping!
