Get Ready For Summer, Part 2

My beauty routine changes so much during the Summer months.  My light skin gets a little darker (I fake it), and I favor bronzey and bright colors and island scents.  Here are some more great products that I love and might be perfect for your Summer look.

Jergen’s Natural Glow and Protect Daily Moisturizer ($7.99 USD)  The healthy alternative to toxic tanning beds and spray-on tans, Jergens® Natural Glow & Protect Daily Moisturizer is the easy, nourishing way for you to achieve a soft, radiant glow without subjecting your skin to sun damage. It creates natural-looking color in just one week, no soaking up the sun (and its harmful rays) required. The lightweight, protective formula also defends the skin from harmful UV rays without the heavy texture of a traditional sunscreen.

Infused with Vitamin E, this multi-tasking moisturizer offers broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection, so your skin stays supple, hydrated and well-protected. Available in two shades, for fair to medium and medium to tan skin, Jergens® Natural Glow & Protect Daily Moisturizer was awarded The Skin Cancer Foundation “Daily Use” Seal for its superior performance.

I think this is such a fab product because it moisturizes and gradually tans the skin at the same time.  Love it! Purchase at a mass market retailer near you!

Laura Mercier Almond Coconut Milk Body Butter ($35.00 USD, 6oz) When creating this scent, Laura wanted to recreate a tropical island ambiance by mixing almond with the coconut’s milk and pulp to create a suave scent that is sensuous and sweet but not too sugary.

This amazing scent is available in body butter, which I have tried, plus body wash, honey bath, body crème, hand crème, scrub and eau de toilette.
