Rodan + Fields: Perfect Summertime Skin

Summer’s coming quickly and everyone wants flawless skin and a gorgeous summertime glow.  I recently tried out a few Rodan +Fields products that can make this happen!

To make my skin glow, I used the sugar and salt Micro-Dermabrasion Paste followed by the night serum (pictured below in the small blue capsules).  Fun fact: The Micro-Dermabrasion Paste was featured in both Allure and Lucky Magazine!  After using both of these products, my face felt 100 times smoother than before.  Who doesn't love pampering themselves? The combination of these two Rodan + Fields products were like a mini at home facial treat!  I also tried out the Body Micro-Dermabrasion bar.  I used in the shower to exfoliate and cleanse my skin.  Unlike most exfoliators, this product wasn't too abrasive and it left my skin feeling soft, clean and so fresh!  

Exfoliating before applying self tanners is a great way to ensure the tan to last for a  longer amount of time. So, after exfoliating my skin in the shower, I later applied the Rodan + Fields Foaming Sunless Tan product.  The foaming self tanner has to be my favorite and is now a summer essential for me!  The foam consistency of the product is mess free and super easy to apply.  I’m always looking for new self tanning products since laying out in the sun's strong UV rays are no good for the skin.  After using the Sunless Tan the next morning I realized what a difference the self tanner made.  Who doesn't love an even natural-looking tan without having to sit out for hours?  This Rodan + Fields product gave me a perfect glow and that was just after one night!  If you're scared of applying a self tanner have no fear because if you do make a small mistake, acetone or nail polish remover can be used to remove unintended color.  If you want your friends asking which tropical island you were just vacationing on, you have to try out this product!

Beach in a Bottle?

Ah the sweet smell of summertime. The summer months are quickly approaching and if you're like me, you like to switch up you perfume scents.  Winter time is great for heavy musks and warm scents, however the warmer months is the time to break out the light floral spray and body mists.  My new personal favorite scent is Beach by Bobbi Brown. Close your eyes and take one whiff of this perfume and you'll think your actually at the beach. It's amazing how they managed to get this scent. Kudos to you Bobbi Brown because you have successfully placed summertime feelings inside a bottle. 

Next time you pass a perfume or  Bobbi Brown counter take a minute to smell this amazing perfume.
