2018 Summer Beauty Favorites from Beauty Brands

 

We all know the summers here in Kansas can be sultry so I have partnered up with Beauty Brands to talk about my favorite summer beauty products that help me beat the heat!

Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream This one is a game changer it is super lightweight and helps moisturize your hair while creating a soft look for natural styles. This is the perfect oil to brush through your hair to help flyaway’s- do not use a lot it can make your hair greasy if you apply too much!

Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray– With this heat I know I do not like to blow dry my hair all time so I use the Bumble and Bumble Surf spray to create a natural beauty look. You apply it to damp hair and let it air dry. I love keeping this in my bag to spray in my hair after getting it wet from the pool so all day I will keep the natural wave.

Luther clearly wanted to be in on the shoot as well.

 

Living Proof Restore Instant Protection- If you have never used a product to protect your hair from your heating tools I recommend this. It not only helps protect against the heat but as well against UV rays and humidity (Y’all the humidity here has been HORRIBLE so this will be your best friend!)

NYX Matte Makeup Spray– This matte spray provides a gorgeous shine-free matte finish that is very lightweight and ensures that your makeup stays put throughout the day/ night.  All you have to do is spray this over your face after you apply your makeup, it’s that easy!

Make Up Eraser– Do you ever struggle with taking off your makeup? I know I have. I ditched the makeup removers that burn my eyes and found my self the Make Up Eraser. I wish I would have recorded myself using this for the first time because my mind was blown. It removes EVERYTHING, waterproof mascara, eyeliner, foundation you name it! All you have to do is get it wet and wipe off your face to get a clean face, I of course then follow with my cleanser. To clean the Make Up Eraser  you simply throw it in the wash every week.

SuperGoop! Everyday Sunscreen- Ever since starting my blog I became more aware of my skin and making sure I am using good products especially ones that protect my face from the sun. I have been religious with sunscreen. This lightweight everyday sunscreen you can put on before applying your makeup. Plus is it is oil-free so it doesn’t make your face feel like it has anything on it! It’s a win, win! Protect your skin people!

Tart Lights Camera Splashes Waterproof 4-in-1 Black Mascara Last but not least, on the far right we have one of my favorite mascaras that stays on through rain, sweat and tears! It lengthens, curls and volumizes as well as conditions your eye lashes to give you stunning lashes. Perfect mascara for a pool day!

WHEN I QUIP YOU QUIP WE QUIP

Who knew brushing your teeth could be so much fun? Especially when you have matching ones from Quip! Did you know most people don’t take care of their teeth properly? You either brush too hard, unevenly, not long enough or don’t brush often enough! 

I actually think my dental hygiene got better after dating Andrew no lie. He is ALWAYS brushing his teeth so I had to step up my game LOL.

Quip has different options on the color choice which I really like, I can’t tell you how many times I have forgotten which toothbrush was mine because we had the same colors… I chose the copper metal and Andrew chose the slate metal color. One thing I really like is the nifty dual-use cover that comes with them (not the plastic tube the base that it is in) which makes traveling with your electric toothbrush easier.

Did you know that you should brush your teeth for 2 minutes at a time? The Quip has sensitive vibrations that use a built-in timer to pulse every 30 seconds and turn off after 2 minutes, helping guide a full and even clean.

How cool, you can mount the case to your mirror at home using a micro-suction strip! The subscription actually delivers new tubes of toothpaste as well when you run out.

Quip has made our life easier instead of running to the store every so often to go pick up new toothbrushes we get new brush heads delivered right to our door!

Dentist recommends that you change your bristles after 3 months because bristles become worn out and ineffective at cleaning. Why not pay $5 with free shipping for your bristles to be automatically refreshed.

Go getcha- self a Quip toothbrush!

April Beauty round up

My April Beauty round up! I am so picky about beauty products because my skin is so sensitive. All the products I talk about and use I promise to be completely honest with you all about my experience with them all.

Gillette Venus Swirl : I received this complementary from VOX BOX for Influenster, for reviewing.  I have to be honest I hate shaving my legs because I always cut myself and this shaver I didn’t have one cut!! Especially on my knees I usually do but nope! No cuts, or razor burn! #choosetosmooth

Eos Shave Cream: Speaking of razor burn! No matter what shaving cream I have always got razor burn but not with Eos. It was so moisturizing and my legs are so smooth!

NYX Lipstick: NYX has stepped up there game! I absolutely love their lipstick. I received this in my April Ipsy bag and fell in love. I love that it is matte and it lasts for some time. It also doesn’t leave any lines when you apply it!

Maybelline Dream Velvet Foundation : I have to admit I am just starting to explore different types of foundation ranging from pricing and brands. I came across this one and absolutely LOVE IT! It reminds me of my Tarte foundation but honestly is a little lighter. And the matte texture is the perfect look for everyday!

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day : I am a sucker for hair masks. And this is the perfect match for me. I just put it on my hair at night and sleep with a cap and rinse in the morning. I can tell a difference in just one use.

Cera Ve Eye Repair Cream: I have always had really dark circle under my eyes since I was little, and no matter how much sleep I get they are always a little darker and this eye cream has been so great for that. If you have dark circles or even creases already I have noticed a difference after a week of using it!

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara: I own so many tubes of Mascara! This mascara is my go to now! My lashes are fuller, feel thicker and do not CLUMP! Thats one thing I find a lot in mascara is that they are great but they clump and I hate that. But no clumps here with this mascara!

Kenra Blow Dry Spray: I learned a while ago to always put a heat protector on my hair when using heat! I have tried so many and they either make my hair still feel so dry or greasy! The Kenra Blow Dry Spray has been a perfect match for my hair!

Dry Shampoo : I fell in love with Dry shampoo when I was in college! Some people don’t understand it! I can go 3 solid days with this dry shampoo and it not look greasy. I know your thing EWW! But seriously it smells good, no grease! Also side not that the brand has so many yummy smells! This  brand is super inexpensive and can find at your local Target!

I hope you all have a great weekend!
