Top Sunless Tanners for Summer!

Hi everyone, happy friday!

As we all know summer is around the corner, and that means shorts and bathing suits!

I don’t know about you but I always feel my best when I’m tan, I just think I look better, and when I look better I feel better.

But everyone knows the risks of going in a tanning booth, and that just isn’t my forte.

Luckily for me, I have someone who lives close by me who does professional spray tanning.

So whenever I have a big event or something special coming up I’ll go and get a nice tan.

Unfortunately, not everyone has that available to them. So I’ve come up with a list of some of the best sunless tanners for summer.

I have used some of these products, and some I haven’t. But I’ve done a lot of research and these are the best ones I’ve found!

(Not in any particular order)

Scrub-a-dub-dub!

Hello! Long time no post, had a bit of writers block. But I’m back and ready to share with you a new product I’ve been loving.

As we all know, summer is on it’s way. Of course once summer is here we get to take off our layers, and expose our not so summer ready skin to the warm sun! So with summer in mind, I picked up a new body scrub while I was shopping around Marshall’s. Here’s what it looks like:

Not only does it smell SO delicious that I want to eat it.. but it leaves my  body feeling so hydrated and smooth. On top of all that, it was only $3.99! Such a great price, another reason why I love Marshall’s. So if you’re on the hunt for a great exfoliater definitely check out this brand.

Happy Tuesday!

When was the last time you washed your makeup brushes?

Ever wondered why you’re breaking out and nothing is helping? The answer could be because you aren’t washing your makeup brushes! Being the makeup fanatic I am, I do my best to clean them at least once a week. Plus it’s really simple! Get all your makeup brushes, sponges, and applicator all together. Run the brush part under luke warm water. Then take some Dawn dish soap and put some on a plate. Dip the makeup brush in the soap and then in your hand move the brush in circular motions. When the suds are completely white rinse the brush! That simple. Make sure to have the brush head pointed down on a towel to dry, that way the water can run out of it. It’s been said that you should clean your makeup brushes once a week, but as long as you do it 3-4 times a month you should be good!

The Newest Red Lip?

Hey everyone! Today I wanted to share a makeup trend that I’ve been seeing a lot. Dark, wine-stained lips! I’ve seen this trend in magazines, on Pinterest, during NYFW, and on the streets. I definitely think this new lip color is going to takeover the classic red lip. The darkness of lip makes the whole look warmer, which is perfect fall.

Here are some great pictures I’ve found!:

REVIEW: St. Ives Green Tea Scrub

Like every other teenager on this planet I have problematic skin. Lucky for me though I don’t have bad acne, just breakouts once in a while. So washing my face twice a day is very important. I always use a foaming cleanser, moisturizer, topical solution, and exfoliator. A few years ago I heard that St. Ives was very bad for you skin because of how rough it is. My mom & I had used St. Ives forever, but after hearing that we stopped using it. But the other day at the store this product caught my eye, and even though it said St. Ives I thought I’d try it out.

First off, I love the packaging. It’s so clean looking & appealing to the eye.

After the course of 2 weeks I’ve noticed a big difference in my skin. My skin is a lot smoother, softer, brighter, and my pores are a lot smaller. The texture of the product is really cool, it feels like sand & the color is green!

Green tea has a lot of benefits for your body, especially your skin. It has a lot of antioxidants which are effective against free radicals which make you age faster. Also, it protects your skin from harmful rays from the sun. Green tea soothes your skin, it can improve psoriasis and rosacea.”Catechins” the antibacterial ingredient in green tea is what helps reduce pimples and acne.

Drinking green tea once in the morning and once at night is also shown to speed up your metabolism.

Overall, I love this product. It’s inexpensive & works great.
