I have some random makeup/skincare loves that I’ve been using over the summer that I thought I’d share with you because heck, why not? I’m a lazy summer blogger-if I can review a bunch of things in one post, that’s what I’mma’ gonna do. 😛
First up, I don’t know about you, but even though it’s summer and it’s definitely hot and sweaty outside, my skin seems to get even DRIER than it does in winter. And heck, that makes sense because if I’m sweating more, water is evaporating off my skin so, water loss? Means DRY. I’m onto to you summer…you really do suck for me in more ways that one HAHAHAHA. So, this summer I’ve been looking for products that contain the ingredient Hydresia, which is an innovative new beauty ingredient by the Health Science and Technology company Botaneco. Hydresia is a natural ingredient made from safflower seed oleosomes that provide long-lasting, light-weight moisture. How? Well, the oleosomes gradually disperse plant oils and vitamin E once applied to the skin, like a continual release of moisture which is pretty dang COOL. And the best part is that Hydresia is extracted using an all-natural process from an organic, renewable resource.
Botaneco partners with recognized brands to give us easy access to the many benefits Hydresia has to offer. Many well-known beauty and skin care products (more than 300 to date) already feature the long-lasting moisturizing effects of Hydresia’s emulsifying oleosomes. Kiss My Face Sunscreen is a natural, mineral sunscreen that is kind of AMAZING. It leaves no white cast at all on my face at all, which sometimes you kind of need, right? Personally I don’t mind walking around on hiking trails looking like a ghost, but when I’m going shopping and doing my day-to-day life stuff, I prefer to not have to deal with white cast. This is a great option! PLUS it has Hydresia, so it’s constantly releasing those safflower seed oleosomes to keep my skin feeling hydrated and comfy! And who knew Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain Glosses contain Hydresia too?! That’s why they’re one of my fave summer gloss stains! Now I get it! If you have dry skin, I urge you to start looking at the ingredient lists of products and seeing if Hydresia, or safflower seed oleosomes are an ingredient. Trust me-you’ll notice a difference! PROMISE. And FYI, most of the products with Hydresia you’ll find in the all natural beauty section. 🙂 Just sayin’. 😉
Speaking of hydration, I’ve recently rekindled my 00’s love for LipFusion XXL Advanced Lip Plumping Therapy($57):
Remember when this stuff was all the rage? It’s still around, and still works really well! LipFusion XXL Advanced Lip Plumping Therapy is a day and night treatment packed with active caffeine and Niacin ingredients. This lip treatment gives lips a long lasting cushion effect that really does make your lips look a little bigger and plumper-as long as you keep using it though! It has a cumulative effect for sure. Worth the splurge if you feel like your lips need a bit of a boost. Some days, a boost is good, right? And the best part is that it really does help dry lips feel GOOD. And for like longer than a few hours too. I’m glad I rediscovered it! You can find LipFusion at some Shopper’s Drug Marts still. And hey-their concealer? Is kind of WOW. Take a look at it if you get a chance!
I love Dove. I really do. Their products are pretty affordable, and really hydrating. Well, at least for me! And this shower gel is not only hydrating, but CRIPES, it smells so darn full of summer that even me…QUEEN of Summer HATE… loves it.
Tiare Flower + Mandarin = YUMMMMMM summer in a shower gel. And I’m pretty sure I don’t have to tell you all about the whole Dove NutriumMoisture thing by now. Stuff works and works well at keeping your skin hydrated. Click here and get a $1 off coupon to try it!
And, one brush. Hey…continuity isn’t always my thing so….BRUSH. LOOK.
EcoTools Eye Perfecting Brush
Wow, Ecotools has really stepped up their brush game lately! This brush is pretty amazing for a drugstore brand.
Now, to use this on your eye? Would be insane. Unless you have some kind of big alien eye sockets and need to blend 6o eyeshadows seamlessly, this EcoTools Eye Perfecting Brush($10.99) is HUGE for normal eyes. And I get that maybe it’s for under eye use to bend concealer, but wow…it’s still BIG. I don’t know, maybe I got small eyes or something. But it works well if you are like me! And by like me, I mean someone who usually dots concealer all over their face to cover up spots and redness because it’s WAY too dang hot to use a foundation in the summer. This brush is amazing for blending my face concealer! Love it. You can find it at most places Ecotools is sold at like Walmart, or here at Farleyco. ca.
