I know it's over-said, but I really can't believe summer is just about over. With a season change fast approaching, it seemed appropriate to write about some of the products I've been loving these last few months. My main focus has been using what I have, so most of these are things I've rediscovered in my collection rather than new purchases.
Weleda Skin Food
Skin Food is one of those cult products that I think almost everyone is familiar with by now. It's a thick, somewhat heavy moisturizer, so not something I'd expect to get a lot of use out of in the summer, but I've actually been reaching for it quite a bit. My elbows have been extra dry recently and it's been working well for them.
Know Your Ingredients Argan Oil with Vitamin C Serum*
I rediscovered KYI's serum (originally reviewed here) when doing some organizing. It's a great face serum, but in true blogger fashion, I'd moved on to testing other things and it had ended up being pushed to the side. With One Love Organics' Vitamin C Body Oil in the back of my mind, I decided to try it on my body one day, and the rest is history. A little goes a long way and it leaves my skin super soft and hydrated.
Evolve Gentle Cleansing Melt
I've wanted to try Evolve for ages, so when I saw the Gentle Cleansing Melt for half price in a Naturisimo sale, I rushed to snatch it up. It's a cleansing balm, but it's pretty unique in that it also fully emulsifies when you add water. I'll have a full review up in the next week or two, so I don't want to go into too many details here, but suffice it to say, I love it.
Pure + Simple Face Colour in Taupe
Pure + Simple's Face Colours are multi-use powders that can be used anywhere on the face, lips, or eyes. I originally bought Taupe thinking I'd be able to use it as a contour, but it has a slight golden sheen and doesn't work as well for that purpose as I'd hoped. I have worn it as an all-over bronzer to warm up my face, but my favorite way to use it is as an eye shadow. It's not clear in the photo, but I've actually made quite a dip in there! Taupe is the perfect medium brown to use in the crease or as a transition color to blend out almost any eye look. There's better pictures of the color, as well as swatches, in my original review.
Mineral Fusion Liquid Lip Gloss in Polished
I didn't have a clear lip gloss in my collection, so I could just about justify adding Polished, which I received in a swap a couple months ago. It works with any and all lip colors and I really prefer glosses in squeeze tubes like this, since they give you such better control over the amount of product you're using than a regular doe foot applicator. The gloss itself has a light berry scent and gives a good amount of shine without any stickiness. It also leaves my lips feeling comfortable and hydrated.
