SummerSun☼-kissed Skin!

My neck of the woods has reached our peak heat lately. How about you?

Bearing this in mind, as much as some of us out there crave the great outdoors, we must take care of our skin.

My fave go-tos for fun ‘n the sun 

☼ Sunscreen (even when the skies are cloudy because my skin’s still exposed)

  • including SPF for your Lips ~ one of my top’s from Tone It Up!

☼ Lotion that reduces …

  • visibility of hair (especially on my legs ~ after laser hair removal)
  • and cellulite!

Aloe Vera ~ to help repair the skin from sun exposure and bug bites, both in

  • topical form
  • and oral! The drink tastes amazing (like bubble tea) and is nourishing!

Alo

H2O ~ so we can glow from the inside out!

What about when we’re back inside to cool off?

Introducing …

CeraVe!

Since I received this two-step skin care pack, I’ve observed more softness from my skin ~ which needs hydration after being out and about in the ☼sun☼

Brush Rush: Ready-to-Go!

 

The reason why she rewarded me with all of these products was because I tutor her grandson, who we rooted on in his basketball playoffs ~ yet I’m the one who’s reaping the rewards.

The compartments keep my cosmetics organized!

All of these will come in handy when I take off for my professional and †spiritual† trip tomorrow!

Mint Bliss

My fave must-try is the Mint Bliss Energizing Lotion for my lower bod ~ I may lather on before I run on the beach!

 

I’m extremely grateful for these gifts ~ especially because I’ve been so busy with attending to my students and my own studies to bother with enhancing my beauty lately!

Of course, I need cotton balls and swabs for makeup and skin care application and removal.

Therefore, my CVS ExtraCare card came in handy!

Due to the BOGO FREE promo, I bought two of each and spent less than 2 dimes!

Plus, I have another amazing massage lined up today before I leave town!

Happy Belated Grandparents’ Day!

Last week, I had the pleasure of spending time with my good friends’ grandmother, who was sweet enough to give me these birthday gifts! 🎁

📖 This affirmations book definitely comes in handy as a reminder of beauty from the inside out, and this prayer is the most kind gesture. 🙏

💝 Of course, I was happy to see the Victoria’s Secret tissue paper before I unwrapped the package, so I’ll use this VS Heavenly (one of my fave fragrances) lotion ~ all of these can fit into my handbag… 👜

☝️GOD bless nice Natalia👏

Beauty Tuesday Review: Honest and Hair

Jessica Alba…

I’ve always been a fan since this action actress’ Dark Angel days! Now I admire her beyond rocking out on stage and screen, for her entrepreneurialship! When her Honest Collection hit shelves at Target almost two months ago, I had to try it!

Don’t y’all love how both the product and the packaging are good to our environment? Plus, proceeds go toward a good cause, too!

Due to the damage caused by chemicals in my hair, I also grabbed a bottle of Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser. I like the fragrance, as with all GF products. This actually reminds me of Pantene’s leave-in treatment, so far.

Tuesday Beauty: Legs Bare and Grin It!

In Beauty Tuesday, Health, Public Interest, Relationships, Technology, Travel, Weekly Wonders, What's Hot, Yours Truly on 06/04/2014 at 03:25

How do you bare and grin your legs?

Make sure you don’t show hair or dimples!

If you’re like me during this time of year, you prefer to strut your stuff in shorts or skirts.

Solutions: hair removal and cellulite reduction

I’ve had my share of ways to bare, including spa treatment: laser hair removal and cellulite massages.

But what if we can’t afford expense of money or time for those sessions?

Here are my at-home alternatives…

I’ll review this bad boy in 4 weeks, when I’m expected to see results! So far, I savor the sweet scent ~ smells o’so good!

I was disappointed that Jergens discontinued its Naturally Smooth lotion to minimize shaving but am glad that it still produces this for cellulite…

Last, but not least, here’s a no-brainier to blasting cellulite:

Eat less fat!

CHEERS for here’s to smooth sailing this summer!
