• enjoying more outdoor fun!

Today on the blog, SobeSavvy.com, I am sharing some Summer Beauty Essentials that will help you stay fresh, dry, protect you from harsh sun and make those bugs fly on by!
Since they are all under $15, you can save money and have more to spend on summertime fun!

* John Frieda® Beach Blonde Sea Waves® Sea Salt Spray, $10.99

I am by no means a natural blonde, but I do have a fun wig that I rock sometimes in the summer. You can get the ultimate beach waves with Beach Blonde Sea Waves Sea Salt Spray. Infused with an ocean-fresh coconut fragrance, this sea-salt spray provides subtle volume and fullness for an effortless, matte-textured style. Suitable for all hair types and shades, including color-treated hair. Shake well before use and mist product thoroughly into towel dried or dry hair, combing through to distribute.

*Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus Picaridin, $14

Yesterday, my family hit the hiking trails but not without applying Avon Skin-So-Soft Bug Guard! I definitely won’t leave home without this. Don’t let bugs get in the way of your summer fun. Protect your family when mosquitoes are most active with this fast-drying, dependable insect repellent. The non-greasy, DEET-free formulas provide long-lasting protection against deer ticks (that may transmit Lyme disease) and mosquitoes (that may transmit West Nile Virus). Available as Aerosol Spray, Pump Spray and travel-friendly Towelettes. Available at www.avon.com.

* Nubian Heritage’s 24-Hour Aluminum-Free Deodorants, $8.99

I love using Nubian Heritage’s line of skincare and bath products. They use organic, fair trade shea butter as well as other natutal ingredients. Their deodorants are available in seven of the brand’s best-selling all-natural fragrances, as a healthier alternative to feeling fresh and smelling great! Available at The Vitamin Shoppe and online at vitamineshoppe.com.

* Hotheads’ Mini G Hairbrush, $9.38

Good things really do come in small packages! The Mini G conveniently fits in your handbag, gym bag or travel bag. Use it with your favorite dry shampoo to refresh tired locks. It’s the perfect little brush to distribute your leave-in products before heading out into the sun. Great for detangling after a swim, the Mini G also helps remove sand debris from the scalp and hair. Finishing your day at the beach using the Mini G will reduce frizz and help create the perfect ponytail. Available at HotheadsHairbrush.com.

* Ola Tropical Apothecary Body Mist, $10

The secret ingredient in Ola Tropical Apothecary’s Deep Sea Body Mist is…the water. Found at 3000’ below the ocean surface off the Kona Coast, each Body Mist contains over 90 trace minerals, and is high in calcium and magnesium. A few simple spritzs to hair, face and skin instantly hydrates and moisturizes. It comes in 2 ounce sizes and available at HawaiianBodyProducts.com.

I packed some of these products in my travel bag along with a few of my everyday beauty essentials. Perhaps these products will make it into your suitcase to kick off Summer 2018!

#WellnessWednesday Skincare Review @LOrealParisUSA #PureClayMask #gotitfree

It’s that time of year again..time to prep your skin for Winter and I have just tried a series of masks that I definitely will be adding to my skin care regimen:  L’Oreal Paris Pure-Clay Masks. I got the opportunity to try the products for free thru BzzAgent.com and enjoyed the masks so much that I wanted to let my beauties know ! 

At the beginning of the year, I shared how I did a detox to tranform my skin from within. In case you missed it, you can read about it here. I ended the article sharing a DIY mask recipe I loved for my eczema flareups. I discovered I needed masks that could mutitask and treat other skin issues like dryness & dullness while not irritating my skin. The NEW L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Masks are made with three mineral clays to absorb impurities and oils, and include specific ingredients to care for each area of your face or skin type. If you need to reduce shine and mattify your skin, then Eucalyptus treatment mask would be your choice. For a mask that can refine pores and smooth imperfections , try the treatment with the Red Algae mask enhanced with natural volcanic particles. Or recover from all the holiday indulging while detoxifying with some help from the Charcoal treatment mask. For a retail price of $12.99, a little goes a long way. 

I hosted a #WellnessWednesday morning gathering with a couple of friends where we enjoyed Coffee, Conversation and Clay! When it was time to let our masks set we meditated on our yoga mats and let the benefits soak in. I shared that mult-masking while multi-tasking is a L’Oreal Paris beauty trend and encouraged them to apply whatever mask to whatever area needing detoxing,mattifying and exfoliating. In just ten minutes, we had glowing skin. Here are some pics from my at home event:

This Wellness Wednesday treat yourself to a mask that can multitask and get your skin prepared now for the winter  …your skin will thank you for it. Now get glowing!
