Since I’m away on vacation I asked blogger friend Megan Joy who I met at the Spark Sessions conference last year what her favourite summer products were. Read on to find out her top picks.
Be gone snow! Be gone!
Summer is upon us, the polar vortex is no more. And while I won’t be experiencing the sweltering Toronto temps this year (I’m living in San Francisco) I still change up my skincare and makeup routine with each season. These are a few of my favourite things right now that are making me feel (and smell) super summery!
Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster
Oh Clarins how I love thee. I don’t ever really get tanned, I just get more freckles and that’s about all she wrote. Self tanner is a staple in my summertime skincare routine. I get the glow and colour I desire without having to sacrifice the health of my skin by going to tanned beds. What’s not to love?
The reason I love this one so much is because you can still use your favourite moisturizer, you simply add 2-3 drops of the Glow Booster to it and then apply. It’s buildable but requires such a small amount that this tiny bottle will last for months. Literally I’ve had it for over a month and use it several times a week. I’m not even half done!
Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Push-Up Liner
This gel in a pen liner is pretty revolutionary. It makes applying winged liner super simple, plus it’s waterproof! That means even on hot and sweaty Toronto summer days this liner ain’t going nowhere! The last thing you want is your makeup melting off your face. No bueno.
Plus you don’t need a brush and pot of gel liner like with traditional gel liners, everything you need is built right into this pen!
Demeter Fragrance in Piña Colada
I am new the world of Demeter. These colognes are made with 95% natural ingredients and their online store has over 250 different perfumes. Scents from Birthday Cake to Bourbon, you can pretty much find any aroma that you’re looking for! They can also be used as room fresheners, or a way to add a light scent to your fabrics.
“To make a great Piña Colada, the trick is to use both light and dark rum, a dash of bitters and a little double cream. Demeter’s Pina Colada is a luscious mixture of Cream of Coconut, Fresh Pineapple and Light Rum, blended to a perfect sweetness and richness.” – Demeter
This fragrance smells soooo good. I spray it on myself and also around the apartment. It’s remind me of being on a cruise with my friend Erin and sipping on Piña Coladas all day long. It’s sweet but not super sweet and it brings back such lovely memories of sunshine and warm weather. Perfect for summertime!
Also I thought that this would last a few hours at most, but this scent remained for over 8 hours. I’m impressed Demeter. Good on you.
