(Clockwise from L to R)
Boo-Boo Cover Up, Photo Defense (cellCeuticals), Lemongrass body lotion (Indie Lee), Daily Lip Nourisher (pur-lisse), My Mix foundation-Medium 02(MyFace Cosmetics), Pink Sugar Perfume (Aquolina)
I picked the Lemongrass lotion because the fabulous Indie Lee gave me a sample of it when I saw her few weeks ago and I just fell in love with it on the spot! I like the clean scent of lemon & this is just super fresh! Also, lemon is rich in natural oil so like her body scrub, it's really moisturizing. I tie citrus into summer and as the weather gets warmer, this will be gone quickly!
I actually used the MyFace foundation (Medium 02) to test the consistency. The word "foundation" kinda scares me because I personally prefer tinted moisturizer, nothing heavier than that. So I was happy to see this wasn't heavy at all. In fact, it went on like a second skin and was the perfect shade. Even though it wasn't heavy, I can see this being very buildable for those areas that need more coverage. I would love to stock my kit with this product! Must have for you and your kit...You heard it here first! ;-)
The Aquolina perfume, Pink Sugar, looked so pink and pretty that at first glance it looked like a piece of candy! Lol!
I love perfume and wear it daily so I'm always willing to try something new. I'm trying to think of the best way to describe this scent...It's like a mix between soft cotton candy and Egyptian Musk.
Those are the 2 scents that hit my senses the hardest. I was curious to see what exactly was in it and couldn't believe I missed so many ingredients but I was close! Lol!
I picked the cellCeuticals PhotoDefense Anti-PhotoAging SPF 55+ to keep in my goody bag stash. I know I like the brand already so I'm confident anyone I give it too will as well :-)
Just last month I received a full size of the Boo-Boo Cover Up concealer in my Beauty Army gift basket but I picked this so I could have one for myself as I knew I'd be using the full size in my kit. Never hurts to double up on the good stuff!
Before going to sleep every night I have to moisturize my lips. My nightstands are never without at least 3 different options! I've been doing this forever and I've come to the conclusion that exfoliating my lips with a washcloth (2x a day), keeping them constantly moisturized and drinking a lot of water is what keeps them plump & soft. I liked the pur-lisse lip nourisher because it's simple. No flavor, color and it's really soft. I like that it's petroleum free because contrary to popular belief, I know it's not a moisturizer for lips. Petroluem based products don't penetrate the skin so they may feel good but they're not effective.
The pur-lisse can be used alone day/night but also as a lip primer under lip gloss and/or lipstick.
Keep it pretty!
