What’s in my beauty bag May 2018

May is here! This month we transition from spring into more of a summer weather pattern. As the temperatures begin to rise, we all need to adjust our beauty routine to stay balanced. While I am still using my favorite daytime Elemis face cream, Revive eye cream, and Revive neck cream, I am switching up my fragrance, lipstick, and evening skin care.

It’s time to make sure our legs are smooth and shaved! As the temperatures soar, I will be reaching for shorts, skirts, and dresses. This means I need smooth legs! I love EOS shave cream products, they are amazing! The sensitive formula contains cucumber, aloe, wild oats, and lavender butter. It’s great for sensitive skin!

If you have dry skin, which I end up with later in summer, this is what you need! This formula contains Shea Butter, coconut oil, and mango butter. Love that! It’s perfect for nourishing dry skin while allowing you a close shave. That is perfection.

Givenchy’s “Live Irresistible Blossom Crush” edt is a beautiful, light floral fragrance for warm weather. It offers notes of musk, pink peony, rose, and cocoa bean. It’s perfect for both spring and summer! I’m reaching for this scent now everyday.

I love to lighten up my lipstick in warm warmer. This beautiful plumping, moisturizing, and soft pink lipstick from Givenchy is my new obsession. It’s fabulous! It’s actually more of a lip balm which naturally reacts to your pH and creates a natural color which enhances your lips. Addicted!

So for my evening skin care routine, I am keeping things simple. I am still using the same neck cream from my daytime routine, but for my face cream I have started using Fresh rose deep hydration cream and toner. This is perfect for my skin since it tends to get dry in the warm weather from sun exposure. The cream brings intense 24-hour hydration for dry skin. The toner refines pores, and uses real rose petals! It’s the perfect summer floral! Love!

This is the season for camping! I’m troop leader for my daughter’s girl scout troop, plus we love to get outdoors as a family. This means I don’t always have access to a shower or bath. Yeah, don’t hate. 😉 This “Flash Bath” by Yuni is the best thing since sliced bread. No joke! It freshens you up as if you took a real shower! It’s perfect for camping, long air travel, or days when you might be running short on time and should have taken a shower; but didn’t. You need this. You seriously need this.

Well, there you have it! All my favorite new beauty products for the transition from spring into summer. I will be using these now, and well into the summer season. What are some of your favorite beauty products for spring into summer?

Fresh Vitamin Nectar Moisture Glow Face Cream review

fresh vitamin nectar moisture glow face cream review

all products c/o of Fresh, from left:  Fresh Vitamin Nectar Moisture Glow Face Cream / Fresh Vitamin Nectar Vibrancy Boosting Face Mask / Fresh Soy Face Cleanser

Fresh has been one of my favorite shower gel’s for years and years, so when they contacted me to let me know about their new Fresh Vitamin Nectar Moisture Glow Face Cream, I was thrilled! I had no idea they had a product line beyond the bath!

The new Fresh Vitamin Nectar Moisture Glow Face Cream is jam-packed with Vitamin C, and essential minerals. It is like super-food for your skin! When I use it after washing my face, I feel refreshed; and my skin is perfectly moisturized. Love that!

In addition to the Fresh Vitamin Nectar Moisture Glow Face Cream, Fresh has a matching mask which is great to use for deep cleaning. The Fresh Vitamin Nectar Vibrancy Boosting Face Mask is my new Sunday evening mask! It too is jam-packed with vitamin fruit complex. Love!

This was also the first time I tested out the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser. I love it! It leaves my skin squeaky clean without stripping the good oil from my face. Love that!

Since simple skin care routines are my jam, this one leaves my skin with a natural glow. Speaking of glow. . .Fresh is hosting a one-month “Fresh Glow Challenge” which kicks off today! This challenge is designed to help us all glow from the inside out.
