I’m not the most in tuned person when it comes to beauty items but based on trial and error I’ve come to discover what I like and dislike for certain times of the year and occasions. Currently on my must have list for makeup and beauty during the summer season is light, protecting, & fresh. I, like many, don’t like to feel like I have a mountain of makeup on my face while I’m sweating buckets in the heat so I like to keep it simple. For skincare I’ve grown to really appreciate Neutrogena and many of their products, specifically the Hydro Boost hydrating serum. Again, I like to keep it simple and this serum is really light weight on my face and hydrating leaving a fresh and dewy look after a simple application of just one to two pumps.

The Boscia eye mask is a new one for me but seeing results after just one use I quickly became a fan. Again, application is simple and quick, I’ve used mine in a long distance car ride with no problem taking just 15 minutes of my time. This is great for those jet lag moments when your poor under eyes have to pay for your travels. Its formula contains sake, full of rich vitamins and minerals to brighten and  provide hydration, willow herb, helping to reduce inflammation and reduce irritation and a few other great ingredients to keep your skin firm an nourished.

For makeup I keep it really simple with Black Radiance’s True Complexion BB cream. It’s usually a struggle finding the right shade for darker complexions with most makeup brands but Black Radiance makes it easy, providing various options for people of color. I’ve been loving mixing the BB cream with an oil for a natural, summer, glowing look. The formula is very light weight, great for summer, and serves as a concealer, a primer, and moisturizer with SPF 15 protection.

Good morning and happy Tuesday! Firstly I want to apologize for my lack of consistency recently as I have been planning for our, Brennan and I, move. I am really excited to share with you a new product that I’ve truly been loving from the brand Trueformulation. I had a small look at their Instagram page and was dazzled by their natural skin care and body products. Browsing through the website I wasn’t particularly interested in spending too much money on this new found brand but was achingly curious, plus I had just ran out of lip balm and was on the hunt for a natural deodorant. While I did not have any luck on deodorant I did happen to find some conveniently cheap, natural lip balm pricing at $4.50, perfect for those curious tryouts. I purchased the Cocoa Mint Lip Balm made with organic cocoa butter, spearmint, and hydrating natural oils coming in a tin or a traveling friendly tube. They provide 3 different scents to choose from :honey, green tea, and citrus, which is what I chose.  Truthfully speaking this is the most buttery and long lasting lip product I have ever used. It leaves my lips feeling soft and hydrated for hours even after I’ve had a drink or eaten. You don’t need a large amount when applying and it gives a perfect glossy look. I like to this balm with a small amount of red lipstick for a tinted glossy look. The Trueformlation team was kind enough to throw in a sample of their lavender Naked Earth Exfoliant containing rich minerals and detoxifying and polishing antioxidants for brighter, healthier skin.
