My Summer Beauty Product Favorites

I love beauty products and am always on the hunt for new favorites. I thought I would open my beauty cabinet with you all, and share some of my new summer loves.

As most of you know, I love La Mer products as I've mentioned in prior posts. I started using the line a few years ago when my husband and I traveled around the world. I was desperate to figure out how I was going to bring enough beauty products with me until I realized La Mer was sold in most of the airport duty-free shops. My problem was solved and I fell in love with an amazing product line. My new favorite is the La Mer SPF 18 Fluid Tint. It's a combination of La Mer's moisturizing skincare with a subtle tint and sunscreen. I love how it feels on my skin. It's light and perfect for summer giving your skin a sun-kissed glow all while protecting against harmful rays from the sun. My skin looks so luminous like I just came from a facial. I'll share more products I love from La Mer in the future.

I was excited when I learned earlier this year, that Karen Robinovitz started a beauty line called Purple Lab. She has been a fashion insider for many years and I have always admired her from afar. I checked out the line as soon as it was available. One of my favorite products are the lip glosses with lip plumper. With the title of "Huge Lips Skinny Hips" how can you not love them immediately? Imagine my utter glee when I realized quite by accident that my favorite color out of all eight shades is called "Red Sole," how appropriate! The reason I love these glosses is that even though they are a lip plumper it doesn't feel like your lips are being stung by thirty bees at the same time, just a slight tingle when you first apply. The gloss goes on very sheer, like you just bit down on your lip for a little color. I have always been a lip-gloss girl. I love the natural and minimal look that is achieved with glosses. I never leave home without my Red Sole gloss, as it has become a staple in my make-up bag.

How can we talk about beauty products and not mention hair care? I recently was introduced to Oribe hair products, a collection of Paraben-free shampoos and conditioners tailored for all hair needs, from my colorist. I’m always open to try new products but I usually go back to my favorites. After trying Oribe I’m a new convert. I love how my hair looks and feels after I use the products. I have very fine hair but a lot of it and after using these products my hair is smooth and shiny. Perfect for summer.

Hope you enjoyed me sharing some of my current beauty favorites.

{As you know me by now, I don't share anything with you I don't love. All of the above reviews are based on my experiences with the products. La Mer sent me the Fluid Tint to review and the other products are ones I have purchased on my own with no compensation by the companies.}
