Summer Beauty Must-Haves from Olay!

The Olay Cleansing Infusion Hydrating Glow Facial Cleanser with Deep Sea Kelp and Aloe Extract is my favorite to-go-to Cleanser this Summer! I like it because it really hydrates my skin! It left my face feeling soft & hydrated and I really like that only a small amount is needed! The Olay Micropolishing Cleansing Infusion Hydrating Glow Facial Cleanser with Crushed Ginger and Citrus Extract is another one I recommend! I like that both are affordable and under $10 too!

The Olay Whips are another beauty must buy this Summer!

Olay Whips deliver powerful skin care with a smooth, matte finish. Olay Whips are available with and without SPF in Regenerist, Total Effects and Luminous. Each provides youth-restoring benefits, whether you’re looking for smoothness & firmness, tone perfection or overall nourishment. What I really like is how lightweight they are! My favorite is the Olay Total Effects Whip. It even has SPF 25 which makes it great for Summer (and all year round)!

 

Look for these products where Olay products are sold!

Launch of New Line of Fragrances that Match Scent w/ Female Personality, by Raw Spirit Founders @Walmart Using IMG Influencers

A new independent fragrance Brand

WILD SPIRIT  Launched July 14th in Walmart stores nationwide

and avail online since June 20 at wildspiritfragrances.com and walmart.com

 

Wild Spirit is a fragrance brand with real ingredients at real prices

that celebrates her individuality. What we put on our bodies

is as important as what we put in them- that’s why Wild Spirit

products are vegan, contain natural essential oils and are free

from parabens, sulphates and dyes. Wild Spirit is proud

to be cruelty free and formulated here in the USA.

 

Wild Spirit, inspired by sister brand Raw Spirit,

was created by New York-based co-founders,

fragrance designer and CEO Joyce Lanigan

and renowned fashion photographer Russell James.

The fragrance collection consists of four scents,

“Spring Jasmine”, “Driftwood”, “Chill” and “First Snow,”

each embodying distinct personalities designed to

resonate and connect with a specific consumer.  

Each seasonal name possesses a double-connotation;

some might say the Spring Jasmine girl resembles the season

of Spring- being perky, energetic and upbeat.

Or that the First Snow girl is resilient and cool like the season of winter.

But it’s not to say that one doesn’t prefer a little Chill 

in the dead heat of summer.

 

Each bottle features unique female influencers of diverse ethnicities,

shot by Russell James in natural backdrops, and shines a light

on the individual personalities by putting their touch on

what Wild Spirit is to them.

The influencers featured are IMG models

Ashley Moore (@ashley_moore),

Victoria Germyn (@victoriagermyn),

Laura James (@jameslaura), and

Eva Adams (@mevadams).

Look for them at a Walmart near you!

Tips to Keep Your Child’s Sensitive Skin Comfortable this Summer Recommended by Dermatologists, Theraplex® Helps “Beat the Heat”

As balmy summer weather heats up, it is not unusual for people to experience a dramatic increase in perspiration, often causing sensitive skin to “flare up.” This is especially true for children who have eczema. To help keep your child’s skin “cool in the shade,” the experts who make Theraplex® skincare offer summer tips designed to keep sensitivities in check.

  • To help keep your child feeling cooler and drier, avoid the sun when it is at its strongest (from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m)
  • Apply a sunscreen SPF 30 or higher. Many pediatric dermatologists recommend physical sunscreens as they may be less irritating than chemical sunscreens.
  • If your child has been in the ocean or pool, rinse chlorine or salt off with a gentle cleanser and immediately apply a moisturizer such as Theraplex ClearLotion.  A light, fast penetrating emollient oil spray, ClearLotion has earned the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance. When applied to damp skin, it uniquely wraps around water on the skin’s surface, sealing in moisture and replacing the natural oils that water and soap can strip away. After towel drying, ClearLotion leaves skin moisturized for hours without greasiness. And, because ClearLotion is a spray, you will be able to apply it to even the wriggliest of children!
  • Make sure your child drinks plenty of fluids.
  • For added protection and comfort any time of day or night, try Theraplex Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Skin Protectant with natural colloidal oatmeal. It also has earned the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance. This enriched moisturizing formula helps to relieve dry skin with superior moisturization that lasts for hours. It soothes your child’s dry, sensitive skin without parabens, fragrances, preservatives, or lanolin.

Have you tried their products yet? I had the opportunity to try both and they work great for the whole family! My favorite is the ClearLotion and it is super easy to put on the kids!

You can find out more at http://www.theraplex.com/ and I know the products can also be found on Amazon.com.

With festival season approaching, it’s time to get your manicure ready for dancing in the desert. See below for tips from beauty expert, Skyy Hadley and polishes from Lauren B. Beauty to ensure your nails look fresh for the entire festival!

Skyy Hadley Tips:

  • For a fun festival look, try the below Lauren B. polishes with a base coat and top coat to protect your nails from the dreaded chip.
  • Stock up and buy a mini travel moisturizer from the drugstore because there is no way you will be bringing a bottle of cuticle oil and you don’t want your hands or cuticles to dry up.
  • Stash a small travel kit with a nail file and clippers in your suitcase in case you break a nail and need to fix it.
