Summer is finally here! I thought I would give a nod to a few of my favourite beauty products to help me get through the sun and heat:
Smooth Operator – I am a BIG fan of the Amazonian Clay line from Tarte Cosmetics. Smooth Operator is from the Amazonian Clay collection and comes in a tinted pressed finishing powder in a compact.
I have an oily T-zone due to my combination skin and my face starts to shine in under an hour, especially in the hot summer sun. The clay is great for absorbing oil and provides pretty decent coverage as well. It does not look cakey or powdery – just a nice, light and natural finish.
Yes To – One of my all-time favourite things to travel with is this mini-pack of 10 Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Facial wipes. The wipes feel amazing on my skin after a long day in the sun. The formula itself is great at removing even waterproof make-up and the sheet is big enough to capture everything off my face. The compact size is perfect for my purse!
Consonant DHE Mask – Breaking out from the sun and sweat? This new triple-threat mask ($45 for 75 ml) from Consonant Skincare works to Detoxify. Hydrate. Exfoliate. Canadian Manicouagan Clay from Central Quebec is packed full of minerals, sea algae to help detoxify while willow bark and tea tree extracts work to hydrate. Alpha Hydroxy Acids in the product works to gently exfoliate the skin.
Pura Naturals Soap – Going camping? I love the idea of a soap-infused sponge and Pura Naturals got it right. The soap is vegan and biodegradable, it also dries quickly which makes it perfect for camping or a weekend at the cottage. The sponge itself is quite soft and if you find the square too big for you, you can cut it down to size. The soap created a good bit of lather and was gentle on my skin. Just add water to activate. Each package comes with three sponges, which is a pretty good value.
