summer skin

skin care

As ladies we're trained at a very young age to take care of our skin. But it's usually not until we see that first sun spot or wrinkle that we pay our mother's any mind. For me, it was watching my mom stock up at the Lancome counter every time there was a gift with purchase, and realizing then that good skin care sometimes deserves a splurge.

I've always been a products girl, the more little bottles and serums and jars in my beauty cabinet- the better. I'll try any product once and have come up with a solid list of some of my favorite summer skin treatments, and some that are on my wishlist. Since we all know to exfoliate, cleanse, treat, moisturize and protect our precious skin, Here goes...

Beauty Counter-
I've recently sampled a few goodies from this brand new line, and let me tell you I'm impressed. There all-natural, safe-for-you-and-safe-for-your-skin mission makes me love them even more. The cream cleanser is non-invasive, and left my skin soft, moisturized and free of hard-to-remove mascara! The body lotion smells amazing- like your surrounded by lemon trees- and I've been using it non-stop. My skin is drinking it up, I've been mixing it with a little bronzer to give my skin some oomph! And last but not least an amazing product I've always wanted to try out- face oil. It's something I envision fabulous Italian women slathering themselves in to maintain their amazing skin. So what do I think of it? The Lustro Face Oil is even better than that scenario in my head- it's magic. It leaves my skin glowy, dewy and every other fabulous term for good skin.

Exotic far away places hold an allure that make getting access to skincare in said far-away places a treat to bring back home. Like balms in a Parisian drugstore, or spf in Barcelona. Well one of my dream get-away purchases would be a BB cream. BB creams are the perfect ending to a well rounded skin care routine. And the German based Schrammeck Blemish Balm on this page is something I've been meaning to try out- since I haven't found the perfect one just yet. How about you, any BB creams you've been loving lately?
