Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing a few favorite things of mine right now. I always love finding out about new products and trying new things. Keep reading to see what I’m loving right now!
1. Evian Facial Spray c/o: My mom bought me a little travel size of this a few years ago to use, but I didn’t really know what the purpose of it was or how I was supposed to use it. I was asked to try it out again and talk about it here on the blog, and was kind of excited because I’ve been having issues with dry skin a lot lately. If you’re wondering exactly what this evian® Facial Spray is, it is a “fine mist produced by evian® Brumisateur® [that] contains a pure, soft, natural mineral water with a totally unique mineral balance, and a neutral 7.2pH [which] penetrates and rehydrates the upper layers of the skin and leaves skin looking healthy and feeling refreshed. Of course, it is dermatologically tested and hypo-allergenic” (evianspray.com). My skin is super sensitive, so I don’t like putting random products with a ton of chemicals in them on my skin. But because the spray is completely natural, my skin has absolutely been loving it. I know it will definitely come in handy in the coming months of hot and dry weather here in SoCal!
2. Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation: I recently saw this on one of my favorite blogs (I can’t remember who’s!), and their skin and foundation always looked absolutely flawless, so I thought I would try it out. I went into my closest Nordstrom to test it out because I always love the service at the beauty counters there. The lady at the Estée Lauder counter ended up doing almost a full face of makeup for me so that I could see how the foundation would actually look. It was honestly the best my face makeup had EVER looked so I HAD to buy it! It’s meant for all skin types and it oil-free, so it will stay in place all day long. I also bought the ‘Double Wear’ Mineral Rich Loose Powder because it gives your skin the perfect matte finish, and seems to blur imperfections. Buying both of these together was definitely a splurge for me, but I don’t regret it one bit. Since my skin is super sensitive, I try to only put quality products on my skin that I know are hypoallergenic. If you have sensitive combination skin, definitely try this out!
3. Spring Juice: As well as trying to only put quality products on my skin, I’m trying to put quality and more natural foods in my body, since that makes a difference in skin too. Last week when I was walking around Balboa Island in Newport Beach, I found this new juice shop that looked super hipster/indie/whatever you want to call it called Juice Crafters, so I went in and ordered the Cleaner #10 juice and it was DELICIOUS! Its benefits include: detoxifying properties; healthy skin, bones, teeth & gums; rich in calcium/minerals; reduces nausea & headache; weight control; strengthens weak bones; boosts immune system and so much more. And what’s even better–it has my favorite fruit, pineapple! It also has apples and mint, which adds a super fresh taste. Anyways, I tried making one at home that definitely didn’t turn out as good as the Juice Crafters one, but was still super yummy. I’ll be sharing a recipe for it on the blog next week, so stay tuned.
4. Rocksbox: I received my first Rocksbox package in the mail this week after attending the Rocksbox x Dove event a few weeks ago. To be completely honest, I wasn’t crazy about the pieces that came in my box this time, but I’m definitely going to switch them out for my favorite Gorjana & Loren Hope pieces! Don’t forget–you can get your first Rocksbox month for FREE when you use the code ‘allglammedupxoxo’!
