Summer Beauty MUST HAVES.


Summer 2013 Must Haves - Beach Beauty


Over the past month, I've had the opportunity to test out some great new products perfect for summer. These four are my current obsessions that I've added into my daily routines.

Marrakesh Eau De Toilette Spray - Just like the box says, this perfume is an "instant vacation in a bottle." I actually expected it to be more musky than it is. But with the floral and coconut undertones, this is THE PERFECT summer scent. 

Coola Suncare - We all know how important it is to protect our skin, but spray sun blocks can be sticky and not really what you want to spray on your skin when it's a zillion degrees out. Coola's spray is not sticky, goes on smoothly and smells amazing. And so far I've used it during 3 HOT and SUNNY pool days and 2 beach days and not a sunburn in sight. 

L'Oreal Sublime Sun - I love this lightweight sun block for my face. I've been using it under my make-up for added SPF and it goes on just like a moisturizer. Perfect for everyday protection. 

The BEACHWAVER - OBSESSED. I honestly am in love with this curling iron. The innovative rotating wand seriously gives THE PERFECT beachy hair waves. I have a collection of about 10 curling irons, and I can happy throw the rest of them away now. Pricey, but OMG WORTH IT.

Make-Up Monday: I'm Lovin' Votre Vu - French/American Cosmetics

Image taken with my Olympus PEN E-PL3 cameraFor the past few weeks, I've had the opportunity to play around with all kinds of goodies from Votre Vu: botanically infused, French handcrafted cosmetics. 

Currently, I'm loving everything about these products. They appeal my marketing sense with the catchy names such as eyebrow color called "Arch de Triumphe," and their "Eiffel Power" lengthening mascara. I'm also loving the colors; I've been rocking an Aubergine eye liner that really stays put and doesn't smudge, and a FAB "Love Me Deux" tinted moisturizer that adds hydration with a little coverage and concealer IN THE TIP OF the TUBE. Hello GENIUS!

I was wondering how these products missed my radar, but after a little research I realized that here in the US it's available only online or through local Votre Vu representative. I highly reccommend searching them out!

Happy Shopping!
