Ladies, I have put together a list of my current favorite beauty products. These are all items that I use daily, mostly in the morning to get ready for running around the city in the hot days of summer. I stand by all of these products and I can honestly say that they really help me amp up for the day ahead. The Sai Sei body wash is a japanese brand that I came across at Space NK (which I came across shopping at Boomingdale’s.) It’s fresh scent really gives off that ultra “I feel clean” feeling which I LOVE. I use it with a Natural Body sponge seen on number 2. Natural Body sponges dry quickly which keeps the bacteria a-way. For a body lotion I like to keep it simple with Johnson’s baby pink. I go through lotion monthly so I like to keep the cost down when I go through it so quickly. Plus, who doesn’t want to have a baby smooth body. For sunblock, I am using Sunday Riley’s Cashmere. Girls, I stand by this sunblock. It goes on smooth and absorbs quick. You will feel protected with out feeling greasy or like you just walked out of the house smelling like a bottle of coppertone. I can’t rave enough about the Sunday Riley collection. It’s definitely staying in my cabinet for a longtime. Ah, the sweet smell of perfume. I am currently obsessing for Byredo Parfum in Gypsy Water, smells like romance with natural hints of Lemon,Vanilla, Amber, Sandalwood, Junper Berries and Looove. I am constantly being asked that ego-boosting question, “what’s that scent your wearing?!” For a quick eye with a statement, I use Chanel’s new mascara called Le Volume. This mascara has gone day to night without even needing a second coat. Doesn’t smudge through out the day and comes off easily when I wash my face before bed. Number 7, Santa Maria Novella’s After Skin Body Milk is basically high-end aloe vera lotion. It is defintiely a splurge but smells so good you will want to lick it off of your sun-kissed body. My tried and true lip balm, Lucas’ Papaw Ointment. I have been using it for over a year and yes, it is hard to find in America. I suggest you do as I do, find your self an Aussie bestfriend and ask her to ask her mum to ship you some. Not only does it nourish your lips but it can be used all over you face & hands. Works great on babies with diaper rash too. And finally closing out the list is the Marvis Whitening Mint Toothpaste. Pretty self explanatory and will leave your mouth feeling fresh for hours, even after a cup of coffee. Enjoy and email for questions if you have any. email@example.com
