Hello! Welcome back to another post. I saw this meme the other day on Facebook & I thought it was perfect, so true for the midwest haha. Only we’ve entered second summer as of this past weekend!
As we begin to head into fall, I thought it would be perfect to share my favorite beauty products from this summer & links to each of them! I do my best to use products that are cleaner, healthy & get me the results I’m looking for!
Hawaiian Bath & Body Lip Balm
My favorite chapstick! I first picked this up when we went to Hawaii for the first time 2.5 years ago! I love it because I know the ingredients are locally grown & sourced & clean compared to any other drugstore brand. The best part about them being cleaner is that you don’t need a ton & don’t need to constantly apply it every few hours. I’ll use it in the morning before work & right before bed & my lips stay hydrated all day! They also last longer than drugstore chapsticks! My favorite flavors: coconut, mango, mint.
Hawaiian Bath & Body, Body Butter
I came across this product the same day I found Hawaiian Bath & Body’s Lip Balm! I love their body butter for the same reason I love their lip balm: cleaner, locally grown & sourced ingredients. Don’t let the 3oz fool you, they are highly concentrated meaning the product will last you even longer than a large bottle of Aveeno. My favorite scents: plumeria & coconut cream.
Malie Organics Firming Cream
My FAVORITE skincare product I’ve ever used. Brian originally got this for me as a birthday gift November of 2017 & I’ve been hooked ever since. This is a blend of organic & natural ingredients meant to help firm, tighten, fight free radicals, reduce fine lights, reduce inflammation, reduce redness, provide antioxidants & moisture to your skin. Like the two products above, a little goes a long way. One bottle will last me 6-7 months.
This product is the holy grail of all beauty products! I use this every single day as a facial moisturizer, makeup primer, tattoo brightener, body moisturizer, a way to get rid of flyaways & frizz etc. It has over 100 other uses including reducing sunburn appearance & bug bite irritation, hydrates the ends of your hair, prevents breakouts, shrinks pores, cuticle oil, provides anti aging benefits & more. This is a powerful blend of over 10 different plant oils, antioxidants, & omega 3s. As this is highly concentrated a little goes a long way! I use only 3-6 drops to moisturize my entire right leg to put it into perspective haha! Even though this is an oil, it is considered a “dry oil” meaning that it works WITH your skin’s PH level so it won’t clog your pores or leave a residue behind!
R&F Lash Boost
This powerful little tube is a blend of biotin, keratin, & peptides to nourish the follicles & boost eyelash/eyebrow growth. It’s applied like eyeliner & used before you go to sleep. My first 3 months I applied it every single night then once I got to my preferred length, I now use it 3-4 times per week to maintain my legnth! I’ve had my tube since January of this year & it’s still 3/4 of the way full! I always thought about getting eye lash extensions but this is a more affordable way & doesn’t damage your lashes! That link will take you to my friend Abigail’s page where you can send her a message about ordering or more info 🙂
R&F Foaming Sunless Tanner
Long gone are my days of using drugstore brands. I switched to this sunless tanner last summer & refuse to use anything else! After doing tons of research, I realized that cheaper isn’t always better.. Drugstore self tanner was not benefiting my health with certain ingredients that are considered CARCINOGENS. I switched to R&F because there are no cancer causing ingredients, it contains antioxidants & vitamins C, A & E to help protect the skin from free radicals & sun damage & is OIL FREE meaning it’s safe for your face & won’t clog pores! Rather than a lotion, it’s a quick drying foam to help the product dry more quickly & glide onto your skin more smoothly. I love this one because I only need to apply it once a week to maintain my color & in turn, makes the bottle last longer. Like the Lash Boost, if you need more info, click the link & message my friend!
That’s all I’ve got for my favorite summer beauty products! I hope you enjoyed this post! I’m looking forward to creating an updated one for fall!
