H2O+ Sea Salt Mousse to Oil Body Moisturizer

I love when I come across a product that does it differently like this H2O+ Sea Salt Mousse to Oil Body Moisturizer ($18/5oz @, It’s a body moisturizer that comes in a can and dispenses a foam that turns into an oil. Did you follow all that?

When In Doubt, Mask It!

I seem to go in and out when it comes to using face masks. I know it's good to give the skin some extra attention with specific ingredients but like washing my hair, it's work and I've just been uber lazy the last few months! On the other hand, I have seen some good results alternating between the below ones this summer so I'll be keeping it up!


CHELLA Anti-Fatigue Eye Mask Kit ($30/4 sets @ – great for a quick under eye pick-me-up that will depuff and lessen dark circles. It’s a two-part system where you squeeze out the activator packet onto the pads and then apply them to the skin for 15 minutes.

H2O+ Oasis Moisture Lock Mask ($42/2oz @, – this one smells sooo good and is a summery blue color! Hydrate and smooth the skin all in 10 minutes.

H2O+ Infinity+ Youth Reveal Peel ($44/2oz @, – I know this one doesn't fall straight under the face mask category but I've been using it as one. It seems a little more intense than the above one and does its thing in only 3 minutes. In addition to super hydration, this one also exfoliates using alpha hydroxy acids. 

TATCHA Luminous Deep Hydration Lifting Mask ($28/single mask, $95/four-pack @, – have you tried a sheet mask yet? I see some people on Instagram that swear by them, like @missfamenyc on Instagram. This particular sheet mask contains Red Algae from Japan’s Okinawa and the brand’s signature HADASEI-3 Bioactive complex, which smooths skin out using coconut fruit, green tea and royal jelly extract, among others. I like putting my sheet masks in the refrigerator to cool my skin down this summer.

Before and After Oil Goodness

H2O+-Sea-Pure-Cleansing-Body-Oil-Lalicious-Sugar-Kiss-Cleansing-Oil My love of oils is no secret when it comes to using them in beauty. There’s no better way to keep moisture where it should be, on the skin. Here’s two new ones used at two different times.


For during the shower - H2O+ Sea Pure Cleansing Body Oil ($22/7oz) from the new Sea Pure line. This light foaming cleanser contains 97% natural ingredients we like such as sea lavender, Sunflower, Bergamot and Rosemary and doesn’t contain ingredients we don’t like arabens, phthalates and sulfates. This is a full collection of products for face and body so check them all out @


For after the shower - LALICIOUS Body Oil in Sugar Kiss ($24/8oz @ – the first ingredient on the list is coconut oil and then Sweet Almond Oil, so you know this one is lush. And this new Sugar Kiss scent is one of those you wish came in a spray form so you could wear it as your scent. Citrus, rose and vanilla never smelled so absolutely fabulous!

Fall Color Pick - Mossy Green
