Happy 4th of July!

The heatwave has started! Keep it cool this summer with beauty that will help you look stylish while catching the rays at the beach. Keep it fresh from the sand to the salsa night club or while relaxing at home with a few after sun remedies. 

When you hit up the beach you never know what occasion might arise and it's best to keep the style while staying protected! Here are a few of my faves to take with me on my sun bathing trips:

Before / While At The Beach

Bona Clara Hello Sunshine Universal Fluid SPF 29 7.3.131) Bona Clara: Hello Sunshine Sunscreen is an oil-free and ultra-light Sun Protection that is non-greasy and unscented. It is very fluid-like, which is why it’s in a dropper bottle. I filled up the dropper and released the liquid on my skin and it absorbed easily and left no chalky white color! It was like pouring milk on my skin only this gave me SPF-29 protection. It was the oddest thing to use liquid sunscreen but it blended with my skin and had no odor so it was like I wasn't even wearing sunscreen when I really was! Always make sure you apply your sun protection BEFORE your in the sun and if you start to feel the burn, apply more!

I'm already a fan of Guerlain due to their magnificent Nail Colour Lacquer, so I had high expectations when I tried more Guerlain products. Let me tell you, I was not disappointed. 

The GUERLAIN Abeille Royale Night Cream was the first of their skincare products that I have tried. I love night creams in general; I always need to apply something after a cleanser just before I sleep. I absolutely love the scent of this cream! It's that kind of powdery clean, a classy and timeless scent that is not at all overpowering. The cream is rich, but not too thick and not greasy - it's the right about of weight for a night cream. This cream helps reduce the signs of fatigue, fill out wrinkles, and give skin firmer texture. Made with Pure Royal Concentrate (extracted from Bee products) and enriched with Royal Jelly, this cream will help renew and firm your skin during the night. But what exactly is Royal Jelly? What I find really interesting about Royal Jelly is that it cannot be duplicated in a lab - it has to be hand harvested from beehives1! In a bee hive, one bee is chosen to feed on Royal Jelly (while other bees feed on honey and pollen) and this chosen bee grows into the Queen Bee2. Royal Jelly's availability is rather limited compared to other ingredients, so it seems suiting that Guerlain (as an established and - in my opinion- a timeless brand) would use such a precious ingredient. 

Guerlain Night Cream9.22.13 Certified Fabulous

From skincare, I then tried a couple of Guerlian makeup products. The first is GUERLAIN Ecrin 2 Couleurs Colour Fusion Eyeshadows Vibrant Effects (08 Two Spicy). The packaging of this product is incredible. I take it everywhere with me just because I love the look and the mirror so much. It's small enough it slip into any purse, and it comes in a black velvet pouch that protects it from scratches and marks. I looks so beautiful that I love pulling it out to touch up any makeup I may be wearing. I still can't get over how beautiful it is. But onto the actual makeup inside! These two shadows are the perfect warm colors for this fall! The highly pigmented matte brown is a great base color - the warmth of the brown is really emphasized when combined with the second shadow - a fiery luminous coral. You can apply the matte brown and then layer the glittery coral on top for great dimension and luminous warmth. These colors compliment each other perfectly and really made my eyes stand out in a gentle glow.

I had the pleasure, twice now, to visit the celebrity hot spot Guerlain Spa at the famous Waldorf Astoria in NYC so I was thrilled to learn that they had their own beauty and skincare collections! My last visit to the spa I actually experienced the skincare line in my Radiance Facial and then became obsessed with maintaining my complexion from that day on. What better than to be able to do so in the comfort of my own home and for less than daily spa visits!  

guerlain Super Aqua-Eye Anti-Puffiness Soothing Eye Patch spa luxury celebrity treatment

GUERLAIN skincare uses potent luxury ingredients that are formulated to get results, and the results have shows on more than a few celebrities that hold the brand as their top must-have! GUERLAIN: Super Aqua-Eye Anti-Puffiness Smoothing Eye Patches are packets with cut-out under eye patches soaked in the perfect amount of anti-puffiness serum. An extraordinary instant eye-contour skin smoother that hydrates and strengthens! These fine and translucent eye patches adapt to the shape of the delicate eye area to smooth skin and decongest the eye by reducing puffiness and fighting dark circles. The results are immediate: the eye area looks smoothed and relaxed; the eyes are refreshed and glowing with youth. Easily fake a good night sleep with these! I LOVED the patches and it immediately cooled my hot, tired eyes and instantly calm and smooth them for eye perfection!!! The skin is tightened and brightened flawlessly and I couldn't of been more happy! These work wonders if you have one of those random crying moments too...takes care of that in 10 minutes! I like to wear these when I travel or had a late night, they are the ideal travel companion. $100 for 6 sachets, makes this a splurge you must try at some point!

guerlain abeille royal youth serum antiaging skincare

Another INCREDIBLE treatment I was able to experience, GUERLAIN: Abeille Royal Youth Serum. I was seriously impressed with how well this worked! I saw fine lines fade and smooth out instantly upon application! They promise visible results in only 7 days but I saw a difference right away and it only got better the more I used it. From the product claims: "Bee products are known to be some of the world’s most effective natural healing substances. Born from their active power, a unique serum with Pure Royal Concentrate that stimulates the key mechanisms of the healing process within the skin to help continuously repair wrinkles and promote tissue firmness". The product is slightly thicker than a serum and is almost like a very light lotion, which feels amazing going on the skin and gives immediate hydration but not overdoing it to my combination skin. I look forward every night to applying this and I even add some in the morning before my makeup...I can't get enough of this! I still have nearly a full bottle, yet I am already trying to figure out what I will sacrifice to be able to buy this again! hah. Yeah, it's around $140 a bottle...but SO worth the splurge :)

Its beach week and that means getting beach-body ready. These great products will help get you there in no time!

 

La Roche Posay Cleansing Gel 7.5.13 Certified Fabulous

La Roche Posay Ultra Fine Scrub and Cleansing Gel 7.5.13 Certified FabulousWe all know how important it is to use sunscreen while spending the day at the beach but it’s also important to prepare our skin first with gentle cleansers and/or scrubs. I love La Roche-Posay Physiological Ultra-Fine Scrub & Cleansing Gel. The scrub, for
sensitive skin, is formulated with a chemical exfoliant that boosts surface-cell turnover while maintaining balance. It contains Poloxamer, which is a mild cleansing agent but effective in removing impurities. It deeply cleanses and smoothes skin leaving it soft and subtle. $17.99

For a gentler cleanser, try Physiological Cleansing Gel. Also made with Poloxamer, this gel texture has a cooling effect without causing dryness, $21.99. Physiological products are soap-free, alcohol-free, paraben-free and safe for sensitive skin.

When I go to the beach, I keep my style as minimal as I can. I don't wear accessories, very little makeup (if any), and a simple outfit that will take the beach grind well. So when it comes to the options that I do have, I try to take good care and make sure I still look and feel my best. We all want to feel good at the beach! I mostly focus on my nails and hair, to pair well with a simple summer dress. 

Guerlain Color Lacquer Rouge DEnferBeach Nails

Go Bold! Neutral nails are nice and all, but when you don't have a lot going on style-wise, go for a vibrant pop of color! I particularly like red, it's a good sultry, hot summer color that will have you feeling bold and beautiful! I found the perfect red that I will be wearing all summer long! That is, Guerlain Colour Lacquer in Rouge D'Enfer. I love this nail polish! It has a flat, wide brush that makes applying the polish evenly, a simple task! It goes on smooth and has great coverage! I only need to do one coat and it has a perfectly opaque color! This nail polish is well worth the price! It's less hassle (only needs one coat) and looks beautiful in the bottle and on the nails! I also tried this nail lacquer in L'heure Bleue - which is a deep maroon/plum shade! This shade will take me from summer into fall flawlessly!

Splurge only a little with this beach option - it will be well worth it! You can pick up Guerlain Colour Lacquer for $23.00
