Wow how has it been a month since my last post?! The past month has honestly flown by and I have been so busy with work that I honestly kind of forgot about posting! Summer as a season has come and gone in the blink of an eye so I thought I’d wrap up the season by sharing some of my favorites with you all.
Super Goop Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40 ~ I’ve gotten really good about wearing sunscreen every single day no matter what, especially since a good chunk of my everyday commute involves walking about 6 blocks. I started using the SuperGoop Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40, which is a broad-spectrum chemical sunscreen that is super light and works well under makeup or by itself. I used to use the Glossier Invisible Shield, but honestly thought it was too expensive for the amount of product and its consistently sold out so I went for the SuperGoop, which has a similar, but better, texture to the Glossier! Although SPF is usually a “summer” product, I intend to wear this all year round!
Glossier Beam Cloud Paint ~ It’s no secret that I love the Glossier Cloud paints, in fact it’s pretty much the only blush I wear now. I practically own every shade of the Cloud Paints (save for one), but my favorite summer shade is by far Beam, which looks like a bright coral/orange, but on the skin looks like a natural peachy flush. I definitely prefer peachier shades during the summer and I’ve been using this blush every single day!
Lancome Monsieur Big Waterproof + Glossier Lash Slick ~ I think I’ve finally found my favorite mascara combination and it has taken me quite awhile. I’ve tried to find my favorite mascara for so long but honestly I think combinations are the way to go. First, I will put on a layer of the Lancome Monsieur Big Waterproof mascara, which is super volumizing and a little clumpy (in a good way) and then I’ll use the Glossier Lash Slick to give more definition and length. On their own, these two mascaras are great, but I love what they do when combined, since together they really tick all the boxes!
Vitruvi Stone Diffuser ~ I love me a candle but sometimes I don’t always want to have something burning in the house, especially when it’s 80 degrees outside. I invested in the Vitruvi Stone Diffuser, which is not only beautiful to look at but also one of the best essential oil diffusers. I’m not super into essential oils as elixirs that can cure everything and anything, but I do believe in the benefits they offer in terms of aromatherapy and soothing anxiety (which I have). It’s been so nice having this diffuser for the past month when life has been pretty stressful, and I love being able to mix different oils together and make new scent combinations!
