Growing up I was definitely more of a tomgirl than a girly girl. I loved playing sports and didn’t mind getting dirty. I hated wearing dresses and never cared much about my hair. Once I was in high school that all changed. I started curling my hair and wearing makeup every day. That’s when my obsession for makeup and beauty products all started. Now that I’m a mom, I don’t have a lot of time to spend in front of the mirror, but I still love trying new beauty products as soon as they come out. Recently, I had the chance to try two new products that are perfect for summer!
It’s super important to wear sunscreen every day, especially in the summer. I’ve always hated wearing liquid sunscreen because of the way it feels on my skin. The Colorescience Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen Brush SPF 50 is the perfect alternative!
Just in time for summer, the self-dispensing brush is mess free and doesn’t leave behind the residue or risk that standard SPF bottles bring, so you can easily reapply the sunscreen to yourself and your kids on the go. It’s safe, non-irritating, and provides instant UVA and UVB sun protection. It’s even waterproof for up to 80 minutes. I keep a tube in my purse and swim bag so we have one when we need it. I love how easy it is to apply and the fact that you can apply it over your makeup is a huge plus to me. The best part is you can’t tell that it’s on, so even my husband can use it!
Most days I let my wavy hair air-dry to prevent it from getting damaged. I do like to straighten it every now and then so it’s important that I have a good flat iron. The new Limited Edition Rose Gold Express Ion Smooth+ from Paul Mitchell is definitely amazing! It features a digital temperature control and LCD display and heats up to 410°F in 60 seconds. The negative ion and infrared technology allows you to straighten, flip or add waves to your hair from the inside out for healthy, shiny results.
When it comes to your beauty routine, there is nothing more important than taking care of your skin and hair. Using products like the Colorescience Sunforgettable Sunscreen and the Paul Mitchell Express Ion Smooth+ will help protect them and keep them healthy, especially during the dry summer months!
