Secret just dropped Freshies, the most Instagrammable deodorant, not to mention totally functional, purse/travel friendly antiperspirant in four scents ($4.99 each). Available in Invisible Solid, this mini antiperspirant & deodorant comes in scents, Cool Waterlily, Luxe Lavender, Chill Ocean and Paris Rose. It’s the easiest and most inconspicuous/discreet bag deodorant for anyone on the go. It looks like EOS lip balm packaging on steroids. I’m headed to LA next week, and so excited to pack this little ball of pastel with me.
James and I were just talking about how much we want to go to Paris. In fact, I put learning french in Paris on my new years bucket list (although as I wrote the blog post it felt more like a fantasy). So when Secret deodorant sent a mysterious email offering a date night inspired by their new line of Secret Destinations available in 3 Invisible Solid and Clear Gel scents: Paris (Romantic Rose), Hawaii (Citrus Breeze) and Brazil (Rainforest Mist), there wasn’t an ounce of hesitation in my choice — or who my date would be. Especially since the line features 48 hour odor protection — everything was coming up roses!
Now that it’s officially summer, here are some of my new favorite products to help keep you refreshed and hydrated throughout the season and well into fall.
Kiehl’s Skin Rescuer Stress-Minimizing Daily Hydrator ($40) – Stress has terrible effects on our bodies, including our skin! From blotchiness to premature aging (to irritation, acne, dehydration, skin fatigue and redness), this product is lightweight and packed with efficacious ingredients (like Rosa Gallica Botanical Extract, Mannose, Camomile Extract, Shea Butter, and Glycerin) to help counteract these negative effects. Plus it’s fragrance and oil-free! I’ve been using it for about a month and see a noticeable difference in my skins health and complexion.
BECCA Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector ($36) – I’m not big on silicone based primers, especially in the summer. Instead opt for a water-based one like BECCA’s oil-control primer which feels so good on (it’s like giving your skin a drink of water). It smooths out pores and lasts all day. It’s great alone or used before or after your foundation application.
Olay Ultra Moisture With Shea Butter Body Wash ($3.99/12oz, $5.99/23.6oz) – In the last three weeks I’ve changed to this body wash and my skin is noticeably softer and more hydrated. It packs some serious lather but rinses off light, and offers a pleasant scent that isn’t heavy or overpowering. If you’re skin is on the dryer side, it’s a must try; especially in the summer time if you’re hoping to switch to a lighter post-shower moisturizer (or tend to forget/skip that process all together).
Murad Clarifying Wipes ($18) – Perfect for acne-prone skin, these wet wipes contain an oil-fighting formula that reduces shine, balances and tones skin by removing dirt, oil and bacteria that can clog pores. While it’s great for the face, I pack
