It is hard to believe we are midway (basically) through August. Summer just seems like it has come and gone. With the semi-mild weather we have been having here in Maryland over the past few months, I have been soaking up sunshine and spending as much time as possible outdoors. With the mix of sweat, heat and sun rays; protecting my skin and keeping my makeup from melting has been a priority this summer. The key words of SPF and ‘lasting’ seem to be in all of my beauty products this season. I just discovered SkinStore with tons of skincare products that transition perfectly into fall. I am obsessed. Check out my huge summer beauty haul below!
Want to see some other beauty products I adore? Here are some beauty must haves from last fall- here, 9 products to help rejuvenate winter hair- here, all about teeth whitening with Smile Brilliant- here and a DIY Rose Hand Scrub- here.
Kerstin Florian Brightening Eye Cream c/o SkinStore – I love that this stuff absorbs super quickly and not only makes my eyes feel alive in the mornings but helps right fine lines. (I also use at night).
Kerstin Florian Correcting Serum c/o SkinStore – This correcting serum is now apart of my anti aging routine. I can really tell a different in the firmness of my skin. I mix some of the Cosmedix Pure C Mixing Crystals in with this (and any other serum I use.)
Amika Dry Shampoo – I usually wash my hair everyday (I know I know) but on mornings when I sleep in and do not have time- I use Amika’s Dry Shampoo. This is one of the few shampoos I like.
Pixi Beauty H20 Skin Drink c/0 – For an extra burst of hydration.
Cosmedix Pure C Mixing Crystals c/0- adds a punch of vitamin c. You add this to any of your serums and/or moisturizers to help enhance the results of whatever you are mixing it with.
