Feeling FRESH AND SWEATY for Summer

Sometimes getting yourself ready for a new season is really painful. And I mean like eyes burning and contacts falling apart in your face as sweat, sunscreen, primer, and foundation streams into your eyes while burning your tear ducts and searing your sight. So. I've learned a few things. One, gently and I mean gently dab just a little sunscreen around your eyes but don't go crazy. You could skip it all together and have sun glasses glued to your face, but those slide of my sweaty nose in the humid heat.

This took me all of 5 minutes to apply.

And soon I'll be off to find something to soothe the rumbling tummy of a hungry kiddo on a Saturday morning.

Face Saver

I know I have a ton of face wash left from a variety of brands, but I received this tiny sample tube of Chanel anti-pollution face wash, and realized it has SAVED me from the pollution aggravation of this city. It works better I think than the korean face mask from the Face Shop. One wash reduces the redness of my pimples and dries them out completely, it also makes the bumps on my skin smaller. I finally found it on Nordstrom website for $45 and I'm going to purchase it when I finish all my other bottles of face wash. It doubles as a make up remover and a tiny amount lathers very well and makes many smooth bubbles.

I literally think its priced way too high but nothing I've tried has ever been this perfect for my skin.

I just wanted to share this with you in case you were interested in finding a new face wash for your skin too.
