The wait is over.... Invisible shield SPF 35 is here!

Now that summer approaches us, it's time to start stocking up on summer beauty essentials and of course, sun safety. I'll be the first to admit, I never wear sunscreen on my face. I never liked the way it felt; greasy, heavy and certainly the white cast it left no matter how much you rubbed it in it wasn’t flattering. Protecting our skin is important especially our face it's exposed all year round. The sun is the number-one cause of aging skin. UV rays dry it out, break down collagen, and cause skin cancer. What do free radicals do? Destroy skin cells, and cause sagging and wrinkles, what blew my mind was a study shows that four days in front of a computer is equally as damaging as 20 minutes in the afternoon sun. WHATTTT?!?!? I KNOW CRAZY!! So why do we underestimate the importance of protecting our skin? And truly we have no excuse why.

Being a Brand Rep for Glossier, I’m excited to share newly launch products details that some customers might want to know more about. So here it is, after two years in the making Emily Weiss Founder and CEO of Intothegloss.com and Glossier came up with a product that all of us have been needing and wanting; a sunscreen with no issues- no heaviness, no greasiness or white cast and biggest plus of all no weird interactions with your makeup. YESSSS!

So say hello to……. invisible shield SPF 35 and get ready to add this to your skincare regimen! It has tiny spheres packed with UVA/UVB filters it is a water gel formula with no alcohol or greasiness so when applied it disappears into your skin. It's filled with antioxidants like Vitamin E and P, broccoli and aloe leaf extracts to help free radicals in the skin. It has a sweet orange citrusy scent. It's breathable, it smells great and it protects our skin. It retails for $34 and is one fluid oz. so perfect to travel with. Hope these details help and if you're looking to buy invisible shield SPF or treat yourself to anything Glossier use my link down below to get 20% off your order.

Skincare Essentials

One of my biggest obsessions has been SKINCARE! I don’t know if its because I’m getting closer to my thirties or I’m becoming more of a minimal kind of gal. There is just something about having glowy gorgeous skin that I love! I didn’t have growing up, the best type of skin, but with trial and error I realize what my skin likes and what it doesn’t. The last six months I have never been so focused about my skin than I ever have been between face mask, cleansing oils, moisturizers and night creams, they have took over my life! But one thing I can say is its working! The more you give your skin the better I realized. My skin is loving the attention and the extra products I'm using. So pour yourself a glass of wine or grab a snack because I'm listing my current favorite skincare products and it’s a long one.

The cold weather is here, and it is definitely taking a toll on our skins. That means our skin is paying the price so making sure our skin is hydrated is key. I use to just use makeup wipes thinking it does the job. Nope! So wrong, they leave so much behind, leaving a ton of makeup on our face.

I had received a goodie bag from a fashion show I went to, and Nuxe Rêve De Miel make-up remover and facial cleansing gel was in the bag, I couldn’t wait to try it. The first time using it, my face felt so amazing and clean but not dry like other facial cleaners do. I fell in love and had to order the full size bottle, which is only $19, and when I say a little goes a long way, I’m not kidding one pump does my whole face and neck. After using it for six months, I still have half the bottle. Keeps my face glowy, clear, and smooth. I use it on my face in the mornings and at night. It’s like luxury in a bottle. It contains at least 93% of natural origin ingredients and two of the main ingredients are honey and sunflower seed oil. The smell is divine. If you guys are looking for a new face cleanser please try this one out.

One Other product I use after the Nuxe makeup remover and facial cleaner is the Erborian Solid Cleansing Oil. MY GODDD!!! This product is solid which is different from other cleansers, but when you massage it into your skin it melts like butter. This amazing product is made of coconut and sunflower seed oil and has Korean herbs to cleanse your skin and remove makeup at the same time. This extra step I do for my skin not only does it makes my skin feel squeaky-clean, but also instantly hydrates my face. If I were to only use one face product for the rest of my life it would be this Erborian Solid cleansing oil. I just wouldn’t be able to live without this product.

After I clean my face at night, I apply Benton Aloe Propolis soothing gel. It’s made for all skin types including trouble and sensitive skin and the main ingredient is aloe. Aloe helps to relief skin stress and this lightweight serum moisturizes as well. Who wants breakouts? Right? This aloe serum helps prevent breakouts and helps heal present irritations, definitely a staple in my skincare collection.

My last formula I apply to my skin is another favorite Nuxe Product the Detoxifying and youth revealing anti-aging serum mixed together with Klairs pure vitamin c and centella extracts. The Nuxe detoxifying and anti aging serum soothes, regenerates and revives dull complexion while you are sleeping. The Klairs is an antioxidant treatment serum improves skin tone and texture and repairs the skin from UV damage that our face is expose to. This concoction is heaven in a bottle. When I wake up the next morning not only does my skin look and feel perfect but it actually looks and feel like these products actually did what my skin needed it to do.

Now just don’t forget your weekly exfoliating and facemask! I do mine once a week and my favorite thus far is a drug store brand. Super affordable and does the job. The L’Oreal Purify & Mattify Pure-Clay Mask. I love this one! While it penetrates into the pores removing impurities’ and removing oil from the skin after rinsing it off your complexion your skin feels refreshed and healthy and after I apply a tony moly sheet mask right after. You pick a mask based out your skin type or skin needs but I have a stash that’s getting a tad bit out of hand. If you don’t know what a sheet mask is, it’s a cotton fiber sheet that is saturated in a serum. They look scary and scare the heck out of my kids but they feel great on the skin. You can feel your skin absorbing all the hydrating serum that are in these mask. Their Brand has become popular in the skincare world and I know why because they provide so much benefits to the skin. I’ve gotten facemask that look great in the packaging but dry and irritate my skin. I can honestly say these are a huge staple in my skincare routine. This brand is is amazing and anytime I go to the store I become more intrigued and more obsessed with skincare.

Now what else can you ask for? I am no way a dermatologist but I have had my share of spending a lot of money on products that didn’t work but the best thing I did was try new sample products saw what worked for my skin and now I can say I’m happy with how my skin is looking. It seems like a lot of work and products but it isn’t. An extra five minutes in the bathroom at night is benefiting your complexion and how your feel on the outside. Hope your guys liked my go to skincare products and comment below on what you guys are using or loving!

Fall Favorites

Fall is finally here! What better way for me to transition into the season than with my favorite go to essentials! It’s time to be a bit more daring and have fun taking your look to the next level with the latest trends.

Fall is the season of change, and that applies to our hair color too. So I recently just turned my blonde locks to brown. I wanted a darker hue and sometimes as a blonde we tend to get bored with lighter hair and after a while we want something more low maintenance. As a hairstylist, I’m obsessed with effortless hair! Dry shampoo, texturizing hair spray, and hair oils are my top go to products. I use them on myself as well as my clients. My kit mostly consists of products from The Ouai Hair Care line, created by Jen Atkins. If you don’t own her products you need them in your life! The hair oil and wave spray not only hydrates your hair, it leaves it smelling amazing. With the Dry shampoo, you don’t need to worry about dirty greasy hair, the dry shampoo and texturing hair spray together is a combo made in heaven. A couple of sprays each and your looks and feels amazing. So if you’re looking for great hair products check out www.TheOuai.com or your local Sephora.

Now if I don’t have time to do a full glam, my minimal makeup; foundation, mascara, bronzer and a dark lip color adds the perfect touches to my look. My go to shades are Kat Von D Lolita (nude/brown) Kylie Cosmetics true brown, (darkest brown) and Colourpop Rooch liquid lipstick (burgundy lip color) they last for hours and I don’t have to worry about touching up so frequently.

Being a working mom of three children. My JORD wood watch has been a perfect staple to my everyday wear. It keeps me on track between dropping and picking up the kids from school to making sure I get to work and meetings on time. This Cora style purple heart and mother of pearl watch from JORD wood watch is nothing but eye catching. It came packaged in a beautiful keepsake box for storage and inside are enclosed instructions on how to take care of your wood watch. My favorite feature about this timepiece is the uniqueness of the wood. I love that it is made of all natural wood and the mother of pearl gives such an alluring feature. The glass is scratch proof, which is awesome, and while you shouldn't wet your wooden watch, it will survive if it gets splashed. The added details of the Swarovski crystal markers on the watch are Stunning! I can wear this watch with anything. I dress it up or dress it down and it’s a statement piece I love wearing. Another thing that I like from this timepiece it has the deployment buckle or also known as butterfly clasp, it just completes the aesthetic aspect of this watch and there are no worries of having to change the battery because this watch is a self-winding, automatic movement and you can see the watch working from the back and also through a small window in the front. I love my JORD wood watch and you would love it too! If your interested check out JORD they have watches for both men and women.
