Tea Time

Tea To Tan – By Terry
So I love Jergens' gradual self tanner… always have.  It’s cheap, totally fool proof & I think it gives me a light & natural hint of a tan.  I use it on and off pretty much year round just to keep my skin looking even & healthy.  It’s not moisturizing at all though – it actually dries my skin out.  Plus, sometimes I’m just lazy and it doesn’t occur to me to start putting it on by Weds so I glow by Fri.  My “me time” at home in the evenings is basically my shower, it’s literally a luxury if I have a spare minute to put on lotion too.  So I decided to make life easier in a pinch and mostly bc it’s hot and humid AF here & I find myself in cutoffs pretty much every weekend and thus, need my legs to look presentable & pretty. 

This By Terry product is the bomb.  It’s also super affordable, what????  I know!!  It leaves you glowing with the prettiest tan and the most subtle glimmer of shimmer (think slimming shimmer).  By Terry says it will not transfer and it does. Not. Budge.  You legit spray it on your arms/legs wherever, give it a quick blend or frantic mom style rub in as you swat your kid away = immediate gratification.  You’re glowing & ready to roll.

Spotlight: RMS

Keeping my clean beauty trend going this week... R M S
I adore this clean/organic beauty brand year round but especially in the summer.  I use RMS’ living luminizer on the daily – on brow bones, inner eye corners, cheek bones, etc.  Ok, maybe not all three of those areas daily but I always add it somewhere to my face for light & luminosity.

A few other obsessions by this brand are the eye shadows – one color equals an earthy natural smoky eye (I love the Tobacco series), the lip shine in sublime (it’s super glossy, natural, and moisturizing) which creates a chic popsicle stained pout & the eye polish in Lunar - it doubles as a highlighter (think more “evening appropriate”) than the luminizer I mentioned above. 

This brand uses a coconut oil heavy base which is delightful for your skin but be warned the idea here is natural, not makeup that is going to stay in place perfectly for hours on end.  I don’t really use the eye polishes much for this reason – though they’re seriously beyond gorgeous!!  For some reason I just can't deal with a messy crease.   Another cult following product by RMS is the un-cover up, a classic cover up that’s good for your skin and blends like a dream.
How simple and natural for Summer is this little line up below??
