My Beauty Favorites Week of August 17-23, 2015

It may be the end of summer, but it is still pretty warm out!  I went to the zoo today with my family, and I had to make sure I had my SPF!  I know, though, that my simple summer make up regimen is going to become more intensive as fall rolls around.  That’s okay, I am ready for it!

My faves this week include a fresh facial cleanser, a gorgeous highlighter, a primer sampler set, a brow marker, and hair care that will give you beachy end of summer waves!

Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser
Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser

Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser ($32 USD) — This antioxidant rich formula exudes a light strawberry aroma, which brightens the skin and the senses without overpowering. When applied to face and left to sit for 5-10 minutes (before rinsing), this complexion clearer acts as an exfoliating mask. It gently removes makeup without stripping the skin of necessary nutrients. It’s also a great formula for cleaning makeup brushes!

What I think: This cleanser has a light, natural fragrance, which I love.  It isn’t overpowering at all.  It cleanses really well without leaving my skin dry.  My skin glows after use!

Gerard Cosmetics Star Powders
Gerard Cosmetics Star Powders

Gerard Cosmetics Star Powder in Audrey ($29 USD) — Whether you’re going to a breakfast at Tiffany’s or taking a Roman Holiday this will be the highlight for you. Inspired by one of the world’s most celebrated Hollywood icons, this Star Powder will make you feel your prettiest. Audrey is a warm champagne gold that is reflective and high shine. Build it up for an intense glow or dust it lightly on your cheekbones for a subtle sheen. Pure pigment and an ultra smooth and blendable formula will make this your go-to highlight.

Also available in Lucy, a rosy hue and Marilyn, a golden powder.

What I think:  This is so pretty!  It’s has an almost creamy texture and it is perfect for the new strobing trend, where you intensely highlight your cheekbones to create a contour.  By “popping” the cheekbones, the face looks slimmer.  This is shimmery, but yet subtle too.

Having a Heat Wave? Treat Your Skin With Warm Weather Skin Care!

I’ll admit, the thought of using heavy creams and sunscreens when it’s blazing hot is not fun.  Luckily, there is amazing skincare that works without making your skin feel like it has a pile of grease on it!

I have been testing some amazing lighter skincare including fresh masks, and after-sun gel, an SPF moisturizer, an eye serum and sheer sunscreen for face and body:

Indie Lee’s Clearing Mask
Indie Lee’s Clearing Mask

Indie Lee’s Clearing Mask ($60 USD) — It can be difficult to keep your face hydrated and also clear of blemishes in the hotter months. This mask will simultaneously rehydrate and detoxify your skin, leaving you simply radiant. Its fruit acids will brighten your complexion and with weekly use, you’ll have skin like you’ve started a new facial routine.

What I think:  It’s difficult to want to put on a mask when it is hot, because you don’t really want goop on your skin.  This mask is refreshing and my skin felt soft, but not greasy afterwards.  It was also helped clear up the few blemishes that are on my skin from the summer heat.

Acure’s Cell Regenerating Mask
Acure’s Cell Regenerating Mask

Acure’s Cell Regenerating Mask ($12.99 USD) — Get serious cell repair with this mask.  French Green Clay draws out impurities while Moroccan Argan Oil, CoQ10 and Seabuckthorn Oil add intense hydration back to the skin.

What I think:  This is perfect for stressed summer skin. When I use it, I can feel it working and when I wash it off, my skin is smooth and soft!  Great natural product for the price!

Korres Greek Yoghurt After-Sun Cooling Gel
Korres Greek Yoghurt After-Sun Cooling Gel

Korres Greek Yoghurt After-Sun Cooling Gel ($26 USD) — If you get a burn, don’t let it dry your skin! This is an ultra-cooling cream gel that provides long-lasting freshness and comfort to the face and body. Ideal for after sun exposure, yogurt hydrates the skin, instantly relieving excessive heat and stinging.

What I think: Luckily, I haven’t had a bad burn this summer (it’s too hot to go outside!).  But this cream is perfect whenever I have had too much sun and my skin is a bit red and tight.  It also works well on my sensitive skin if I have left a peel or mask on too long and my skin is irritated.

VENeffect Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 15
VENeffect Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 15

VENeffect Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 15 ($145 USD) — enhances collagen production, helps reverse sun damage and dramatically improves skin elasticity while offering broad-spectrum protection from harmful UVA/UVB rays. With the ongoing push to work SPF into every day skincare, this product’s lightweight formula is an easy way to ensure skin is protected while still providing the benefits of a true moisturizer and without leaving behind a white cast.

What I think: I love how light this moisturizer is!  I apply it after my serum in the morning and since it has SPF, it does double-duty.  Plus, it has amazing skincare benefits.  I have noticed that my skin is smoother and clearer.  I am hoping to see improvements in skin elasticity after I use it for a few weeks.
