after suncare…


Over this past weekend I got some sun, a little too much sun. But luckily I had this stuff in my beauty box. It’s summertime, and sometimes our sunscreen just doesn’t work as well as we’d like or we are out in the sun too much. I myself do not tan, I only turn red. I have fair skin, blue eyes, blonde hair, and freckles.

COOLA radical recovery after-sun lotion

Wow, what a difference this makes. Cools my sunburn down and helps heal it quickly. Replenishes, renews, and moisturizes, all in one. Good stuff for your summertime beauty care box. I also highly recommend any of the COOLA suncare products. Great stuff. For everyday I use the…

FACE SPF 30 UNSCENTED MATTE TINT – this stuff rocks. Great for sensitive skin and gives me a nice even skin tone. Note: it is drying on the face so be sure to moisturize too.


What are your after sun hints and tips? Besides Aloe Gel.

favorite hair brush…


My NEW favorite hair brush of all time, so glad I found The Wet Brush! It’s amazing for my tangled wet hair. I have hair that easily tangles when wet and this is a hair savior. I like it so much more than the Tangle Teaser brush too. Even when my hair is short, it tangles. Even when I condition it, it tangles. This tames tangles so easily. I highly recommend it. I found mine at Target but you can get it on too.

Have you tried it yet? If so please comment.

Aveda Botanical Kinetics Skin Care…


I am giving AVEDA botanical kinetics dry/normal skin care line/kit a try.

I used to shop AVEDA a lot a long time ago. But found myself switching over to Origins line most recent years. I have dry to normal skin. Even in the summer staying in A/C all the time, dries my skin out a lot. In winter it’s pretty dry too. My age also has something to do with that. Dryer skin comes with age. I want a line of products that helps keep my skin glowing.


What new skincare are you enjoying this summer? Leave a comment below, let me know. I am always open to suggestions.
