Hi All! I just got back from a big road trip with my family a few days ago and have lots of products to review! I thought I’d start with fun summer beauty picks since I was gone for the first day of summer.
I am loving the following products:
Tan-Luxe The Butter Illuminating Tanning Butter ($36 USD) — Revolutionise the way you tan with our most luxurious, nourishing formula yet. A multitasking 4 in 1 replenishing and hydrating body treatment, skin perfecter, illuminator and gradual tan.
A lightweight, quick-drying formula with a unique complex of Vitamin E, Raspberry Seed Oil, Oat Oil and Coconut Oil combined with Cocoa Butter and Shea Butter. THE BUTTER delivers increased moisture to the skin that is clinically proven to last for 24 hours along with a natural-looking tan glow that develops within 4-6 hours.
What I think: This is such a hydrating body butter that also gives a beautiful tan. I apply it to exfoliated skin and let it develop for at least 4 hours. The color is very natural and not orange at all. I would love to try their tanning oils next!

Finishing Touch Flawless ($19.99 USD) — Introducing the NEW Finishing Touch Flawless, this year’s must-have addition to your beauty routine. The new gold-standard in women’s facial hair removal, Flawless instantly and painlessly sweeps away unwanted hair with a new spinning technology destined to make painful plucking or waxing obsolete. Flawless is so gentle it can be used every day without risking redness or irritation to your skin, and there is no downtime waiting for regrowth to remove hair The sleek and discreet white and rose gold façade is a serious upgrade to any vanity. With a built-in light and battery-operated design, Flawless is ideal at home or on-the-go. It’s also TSA-approved for convenient travel. The 18-karat gold-plated head is hypoallergenic and removable for easy cleaning.
What I think: I took this on my vacation. I popped it in my makeup bag, and whenever I needed to remove facial hair, it was easy and painless. Just use circular motions over the area to be treated and hair is removed. It takes a little bit to get all of it, but hair is removed (as well as dead skin). It is easy to clean, just pop the top of the device and clean with included brush. This is a neat little device.
Mally Beauty brings shimmering summer makeup:

The design of the blush allows you to apply the product quickly by simply swiping it on the cheeks, creating the perfect summer look.

Mally Beauty Evercolor Shadow Stick Extra Eye Shadows ($25) — Provides quick application and long-wearing color that looks incredible all day. It is a multifunctional product – your primer, shadow base and eye shadow all in one. Once your look is complete, it will stay fresh all day long! Available in Autumn Shimmer, Bliss, Brownstone, Moonlight, Pink Champagne, Shimmering Mauve, Timeless Taupe and more.
Mally Beauty Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Eyeliner ($18) — is a high performance eyeliner that glides on easily and lasts all day. It’s perfect for those who want a long lasting product that can be smudged or worn alone. Try them in Caribbean Blue, Pink Champagne, Ice Blue, Starshine and Sparkling.
What I think: Mally’s products are always high-performing and gorgeous! I have the blush in the Lighter shade. It’s a shimmering coral pink that looks amazing this time of year. It can be blended for a softer look, but it’s also buildable. The eyeshadow and eyeliner are both very pigmented and blendable, but once they set, they will stay all day!

Treets Traditions The Alps – Healing In Harmony Collection– The Healing In Harmony collection is inspired by the medicinal ingredients found in the Alps, where weather challenges everything that lives. With a powerful blend of rosemary, lavender, grapeseed, and beeswax, the Healing In Harmony collection conditions skin and leaves behind a fresh and soft scent. This collection includes Foaming Shower Gel, Shower Gel, Body Salt Scrub, Body Butter, Bath Fizzers, Hand Wash, Hand Lotion, and Bath Tea.
What I think: I tried the Body Salt Scrub. It comes with a little spoon to help scoop the product out, which I liked. The scrub itself it perfect for pre-tanning or just getting rid of dead skin. My skin was soft and glowing afterwards.
This and other collections from Treets Traditions is available at Ulta stores and http://www.ulta.com
EO Certified Organic Deodorant Sprays ($6.99 USD) — The best way to stay fresh all day is to eliminate odor at its source. The certified organic deodorants contain no aluminum salts, propylene glycol, zinc salts, or triclosan that can potentially clog pores. Pure essential oils and organic Ethanol neutralize and eliminate the sources of unpleasant body odors to keep you fresh, cool, and clean all day long and can be used safely multiple times per day. Available in: Lavender, Citrus, Vetiver, and Tea Tree
What I think: I received this in Vetiver. It smells amazing, really fresh. It cools the body when sprayed under the arms. I think this is perfect for those who can wear natural deodorants. I need the extra strength stuff, so this only lasted a couple of hours on me. But if you don’t need clinical deodorants, this is a perfect choice!
