Superfood Face Care from Lather

Lather-Caviar-Lime-AHA-Cleansing-Creme-and-Australian-Plum-Night-Creme

The word superfood is everywhere these days, in the obvious place, foods, but it’s also cropped up in skin care like in these two from the LATHER brand. Now I expect a lot out of my skin care products that I use. Multi-tasking is the name of the game!

I’ve been using their Caviar Lime AHA Cleansing Crème ($21/4oz @ lather.com) and the Australian Plum Night Crème ($43/1.8oz @ lather.com) for the past 6 weeks and I think the brand is onto something with these two.

Here’s the breakdown:

Caviar Lime AHA Cleansing CrèmeWhat it is

Reveal a smoother, brighter and more even-looking complexion with this luxurious and creamy foaming cleanser infused with Caviar Lime, a small yet powerful citrus fruit from Australia. Also known as Finger Lime or Microcitrus Australasica, Caviar Lime is especially rich in precious alpha hydroxy acids that gently exfoliate the skin’s surface to reveal more supple and radiant skin. The fruit also contains brightening, skin-protecting antioxidant Vitamin C.

With the addition of water, the thick cream transforms into a velvety soft mousse to sweep away dirt, excess oil and makeup. The formulation is enriched with nourishing botanicals that include meadowfoam seed oil, an excellent source of Vitamin E, and sodium hyaluronate (from hyaluronic acid) to keep skin’s moisture in balance.

Ciate-Dewy-Spritz-on-table
Who doesn’t love a nice spritz on the face when it’s hot out? How about if it adds some benefits like priming and setting makeup? That’s what you get with CIATE’s new Dewy Spritz ($25/4.22oz @ ciatelondon.com, sephora.com).

#SaveOnSensitiveSkincare with Simple and Walgreens

Simple-Wipes-and-face-products
Before you know it, summer will be here. I mean, it’s just about Memorial Day weekend, which is the official kick off of the season so get that BBQ started! And I don’t know about you but I like to simplify things as soon as it starts to get hot, like I move the family from one night to two nights of not turning on the stove, laundry is done every Monday eve instead of Saturday afternoon, and the cool basement TV room opens up for the kids and their friends to hang out in.

Also part of this paring down is the streamlining my sensitive skincare routine by incorporating products from the Simple brand I pick up at Walgreens. I love that they put their money ingredients where their mouth is, as in, Simple keeps it … simple! If you are an ingredient reader like I am, you’ll see that what they put inside the products is just as important as what they’re leaving out, like annoying artificial perfumes, harsh chemicals, or dyes. Summer is simple, so shouldn’t your skin care routine be too?

Collosol Eau de Lait

Collosol-Eau-de-Lait
I don’t know that last time I smelled a really French product. As in one that transports me back. And this COLLOSOL Eau de Lait ($18/3.4oz, $28/8.5oz, $38/13.5oz @ bigelowchemists.com, smallflower.com) does just that. It brings me back to my Aunt’s house just outside of Paris and when I used to visit as a child every year, then, quite frequently as a teen (it was my father’s answer of trying to tame me).

Created in Paris in the 1950s, this milky water cleanser and makeup remover has become a cult favorite of those in the know, and now I’m one of them!

You know when you go to a summer party and you see that one girl that just seems to have it all together? She has on the right summery dress, the hair that falls perfectly into place, and they just have that glow about them? Well, Olay Cleansing Infusions wants to help you be that girl at your next outing.

I don't know about you but summer is my favorite fashion season and as soon as we have a day that hits 80 degrees, all my cute dresses come out, especially the ones with the bold prints! I have this one I bought in the dead of winter that I've been dying to wear and I finally did this past weekend. It's a green and white polka dot dress and was perfect for a Kentucky Derby party I attended.

And to get my glow on, I used Olay Cleansing Infusion Hydrating Glow Body Wash (made with deep sea kelp) and Olay Cleansing Infusion Hydrating Glow Facial Cleanser (this one contains deep sea kelp and aloe extract). Both the facial cleanser and the body wash come in Crushed Ginger with Citrus Extract, too!

Say Yes to Yes To Superblueberries

Yes-to-Superblueberries-Recharging-Greek-Yogurt-&-Probiotic-DIY-Moisturizing-Parfait-and-3-in-1-Mask-Scrub-and-Cleanser-main
This YES TO SUPERBLUEBERRIES Recharging Greek Yogurt & Probiotic 3-in-1 Mask, Scrub & Cleanser ($15.99/4oz @ target.com) is made especially stressed skin, so basically everyone! I love that this is a multi-purpose face product in that you can use it as a mask (contains the mud Bentonite), an exfoliator (it contains blueberry fruit extract and lactic acids), and a straight up face cleanser.

This one dries down almost all the way and it really makes my skin feel nice and soft, which doesn’t happen with many cleansers like this.

#FeeltheWhip with Olay Regenerist Whip SPF 25

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Olay but all opinions are my own.

Applying-Olay-Regenerist-Whip-SPF-25-2
If there’s one thing I have learned from this beauty journey over the past 18+ years of blogging is the importance of wearing SPF. I mean, it’s the #1 way to prevent wrinkles! And I am really loyal to putting it on in the morning. My routine is: get out of bed, use the toilet, brush my teeth, wash my hands and splash cool water on my face. Then, I apply SPF! I don’t leave the house without it on; in fact, on days when I’m not even leaving the house, I put it on as the sun still shines into windows.

So I was quite excited when I heard about Olay Regenerist Whip SPF 25 available at Target. I’ve tried their regular Whip and am a fan and now I will be adding this one to my daytime regimen.
