@amika’s Bushwick beach no-salt wave spray: my new holy grail!!! amika gifted me
@amika’s Bushwick beach no-salt wave spray: my new holy grail!!! amika gifted me their newest wave spray, and it has been an absolute godsend 🙌🏻 — 💚 This here is a non-drying, multi-phase texture spray that’s supposed to provide the perfect beachy looking mane, sans actual trip to beach. It gives body and just the right amount of hold and shine. 💚 Zeolite is in here to fight frizz, detoxify the hair, and build long-lasting volume and texture. Sodium Hyaluronate, which is a derivative of hyaluronic acid, gives hair a film of moisture to provide deep hydration to the hair and protect against hair-damaging pollutants. Silica is here to absorb moisture and sebum for a beautiful voluminous, matte finish. 💚 This wave spray is free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, gluten, mineral oil, petrolatum, artificial colors, and cruelty! 🐇💕 💚 Now, I’m absolutely obsessed with this spray. Why? It’s everything I’ve ever wanted in a wave spray. Just a few spritzes of this guy on damp hair and I have volume for the entire rest of the day. No crunch, no dried ends. Just pure, simple beachy waves. LOVE! . . . #amika#trendingatsephora#OctolyFamily

I was SO excited when @Caudalie gifted me their newest, limited edition ombré pink Beauty Elixir! I mean, we love a frosted glass bottle, we love ombré and we love it all even more when it’s in pink amiright? — 🍇 Caudalie’s cult favorite Beauty Elixir is meant to be a multipurpose mist that tones, tightens pores, preps skin for makeup and sets makeup. It’s supposed to provide a glow while boosting your mood and de-stressing you. 🍇 What’s in here? 100% natural ingredients! We’ve got grape extracts to moisturize, rose and benzoin to tone, orange blossom to soften, rosemary to strengthen, myrrh to awaken, and mint to reduce pore size. 🍇 This mist, I truly do enjoy. But is it an absolute necessity for me? I mean, no. It’s got a really lovely scent and it’s incredibly refreshing, but I guess it just stops there for me, honestly. I just don’t see results from this mist that justify that price point. Would I buy this if it was on sale? Like, heavily discounted? Yeah I would, because I really do enjoy it. Just not super game changing 🤷🏻‍♀️ And that’s ok! Most skincare isn’t, it’s just about making you feel good and pampered in that particular moment. Personally, I use skincare as a form of self care. I do it for the smells and the textures. And if you do too, this mist is for you, because it really is super calming and mood lifting ~~~ . . . @mycaudalie@sephora#LoveAtFirstMist#OctolyFamily

Issa late night #TextureTuesday 🌙💦 @drbrandt gifted me their newest Clean Biotic
Issa late night #TextureTuesday 🌙💦 @drbrandt gifted me their newest Clean Biotic pH-balanced yogurt cleanser with chlorophyll, and I’ve loved trying it, because it’s been such an interesting new cleanser to get ahold of! So, let’s talk: — 🧼 This cleanser was made to dissolve dirt, impurities, pollution, traces of makeup and excess oil, all without stripping the skin and making sure it stays moisturized. It’s specially designed to keep the skin’s pH balance in check, to help the skin maintain its balance of natural flora, and help strengthen the skin’s barrier. 🧼 This cleanser has a medium weight gel cream consistency that is free of fragrance, and it can be used daily, morning and night. It’s been a really nice summertime cleanser, and I say this because it’s got this cool mint color to it, which reminds me of the pool or the sea 🏖😌 Also because it’s got a lightweight feel to it and just feels really refreshing when I use it, whether that’s in the morning to wake up or in the evening as a second cleanse. My skin never feels tight after I use this cleanser! Does exactly what it says 👌🏻 — Fun fact: it was so hot on my roof when I shot this that this swatch of cleanser basically started boiling soon after I squeezed it out of the bottle 😅🥵 . . . #cleanbiotic#drbrandt#OctolyFamily

Happy Sunday, babes! Introducing Part 2 of my mini beach shoot from last Sunday
Happy Sunday, babes! Introducing Part 2 of my mini beach shoot from last Sunday 🏖☀️📷 — I got my hands on this @plant.apothecary trio as part of another collaboration with the brand and @joinpalm 🏝 🌿 Reset Organic Oil-Free Makeup Remover - this is essentially a micellar water, and I mean, it does exactly what it says; removes all your makeup! I dump a generous amount on some cotton pads, and my mascara, blush, everything, comes right off. The Rose geranium + lemongrass scent is subtle and lovely 😌 🌿 Wash Your Face Organic Aloe Face Wash - a USDA organic, gentle, non-stripping and lightly sudsing face wash. It’s fragrance, paraben, sulfate and synthetic-free, and it’s suitable for sensitive skin types too. I’ve been liking it as a second cleanse after using the micellar water 💦👌🏻 🌿 Last but not least, Re: Fresh Organic Toning Face Mist - my favorite product of all these 3! Ugh, where to begin. That cucumber and rosewater combo is really what gets me the most, honestly. It smells so nice and it is just SO refreshing 🤤 Exactly what you need for some good summertime refreshment. Cucumber, rosewater and aloe vera are there to soothe, and witch hazel and lemongrass are meant to tone and retreat. It can be used as a toner, face mist, makeup setter. Love! . . . #plantapothecary#skincaretrio#cleansingtrio#beachdayshoot#beachday#skincareinthesun#sunnyskincare

Happy Tuesday, friends! Introducing Part 1 of my mini beach shoot from this past
Happy Tuesday, friends! Introducing Part 1 of my mini beach shoot from this past Sunday, before we all indeed had to evacuate the sand and hail storm that descended upon us 🙃 Hand modeling by @ccgarciaaa 👐🏻💘 — Today’s post is dedicated to @georgetteklinger’s Volcanic Mineral Scrub, which I was able to try via a collaboration with the brand and @joinpalm 🌴 🌋 Who is she? She’s an ultra gentle facial scrub containing finely pulverized sand from Icelandic earth diverges and volcano eruptions, along with antioxidant and vitamin E-rich argan oil, aloe vera gel and extracts of green tea, witch hazel, passion flower and jasmine. 🌋 This facial scrub was made to provide a calming and smoothing effect as it sloughs away dead skin cells from the surface of your face. It’s supposed to revitalize rough, dull and uneven skin, and scrub away buildup and impurities. It’s also meant to stimulate healthy circulation, and boost radiance. 🌋 My thoughts? I mean, this scrub is extremely gentle. As in, kind of way too gentle - for me, at least. I can’t really feel much scrubbing action because the sand granules are so wrapped up in the gel, it’s like I can barely benefit from them. That being said, I prefer pretty harsh scrubs as a rule of thumb, so this one I’d recommend for someone with ultra sensitive skin, who wouldn’t normally use a physical exfoliant, or who is just starting with one. . . . #georgetteklinger

Hi, friends 👋🏻 I’m back after another hiatus, and I’m talking about the amazing Vinosource S.O.S Thirst-Quenching Serum that @Caudalie gifted me 🥰 I’m so happy to finally have my hands on the full size of this baby - I’d paired a sample I had of it with the S.O.S Intense Moisturizing Cream when I was testing it out (also kindly gifted by Caudalie), and I’ve become absolutely obsessed with how amazingly the two pair together. — 🍇 This S.O.S Thirst-Quenching Serum is an oil-free, silky and lightweight moisturizing serum that was made to stimulate the skin’s internal hydration mechanisms and restore its water balance. It’s powered by 100% organic grape water, and it helps to instantly soothe skin and help against irritation. 🍇 Hyaluronic acid is in here to provide a plumping hydrating effect and help reduce visible signs of aging. Vinolevure moisturizes and strengthens, while olive squalane heals and soothes. Grape seed polyphenols provide antioxidants protection against harmful free radicals like the sun, pollution and stress, and organic grape water moisturizes and soothes. 🍇 I mean, this is one of my absolute favorite moisturizing serums. She and the S.O.S Intense Moisturizing Cream make such a dynamic duo! It’s only when I use this serum before the cream that the cream sinks in so much more quickly and smoothly. And what’s great is that she does pack a really strong hydrating punch, while remaining very lightweight and easy on the skin during these hotter summer months. Sometimes I wear her out with nothing else! So so good 🙌🏻 . . . @mycaudalie@sephora#saveyourskin#OctolyFamily

Hiya, friends 👋🏻 I haven’t posted a #FarmacyFriday in a while, so what better way than to make a comeback, nice and strong with a gooey shot of one of absolute faves, Clean Bee 🍯💛✨ — This cleanser, it’s just perfect. It smells divine, and makes for such a wonderful, sensorial experience. I love using it in the morning to wake up to the sweet smell of honey, and in the evening after using Green Clean. Every time, I am left with happy, clean and non-stripped skin. Always a staple, and I cannot recommend enough! . . . #farmacyfridays#farmacybeauty#farmacy#cleanbee#honeycleanser#honeyinskincare#honeygoodness#gooeygoodness

First day of work at OG favorite skincare company, ✔️ Kids, dreams do come true ✨ — These products are my top 3 favorite products from @loccitane. The Divine Cream, it’s luxury in a jar and it gives my face the most beautiful glow. The Shea Butter Hand Cream smells like warmth and comfort and nourishes my hands for hours - it even survives a light hand wash! The Almond Shower Oil transports me to heaven after one whiff, and it makes my shower experience a magical, delicious one. Let’s not forget the silky smooth skin. I cannot recommend these enough, friends 💛 . . . #loccitane#loccitaneusa#bestsellers#mostloved#favorites#sheabutter#sheabutterhandcream#immortelledivine#divinecream#almond#almondshoweroil#smoothskin#softskin

Happy Texture Tuesday you guys!!! It’s been a while since I’ve posted one of these so I’m excited about this one 💜 I bought this @herbivorebotanicals Amethyst Exfoliating Body Polish a long while back, and finally I’m sharing my thoughts. In short, this is one of the absolute best body scrubs I’ve ever used. It’s on par with the Coco Rose Body Polish, also from Herbivore, so Herbivore is just really on it here. ~ This Amethyst Exfoliating Body Polish, it’s made with crushed amethyst, jasmine sambac oil, virgin coconut oil and Epsom salts. It makes my skin sooo soft, it’s incredible, and it smells lovely too, thanks to that jasmine sambac oil. I can use a body wash afterwards and still feel the softening effects from the scrub when I use my towel to dry off, which I guess does sound like a given, but what I mean to say is that the difference is noticeable as compared to if I’d just used the body wash alone. This body scrub is pretty abrasive, I would say, but that happens to be a huge plus for me. My only complaint is that for the price, there’s not an incredible amount of product, and if you want this to last, you’ll have to use it very sparingly. I guess you can think of it as an indulgent product that way? All I have left to say is, the next time you see an Herbivore or Sephora sale, add this baby to your cart!!! . . . #texturetuesday#herbivorebotanicals#herbivore#herbivorebodypolish#herbivorebodyscrub#bodyscrub#amethyst#exfoliating#bodypolish#amethystexfoliatingbodypolish#purplevibes

Happy Sunday, friends ☀️ @amika gifted me their High Tide Deep Waver recently, and I’m absolutely obsessed 💁🏻‍♀️ — Separately, yes I know that I’ve been absolutely MIA on here for the past 2 weeks, and pretty absent before that to begin with, but my reasons, in short, are life and work 🙃 Don’t be too worried, though, because things have finally turned around for me, and I hope to start being way more active and engaged on here! I miss engaging with everyone’s beautiful work 💕 And I miss doing something I love so much, creating and sharing my own work. With that being said, let’s talk about this amazing @amika tool! — This here is a ‘hair waver’ that creates crease-free waves on all hair types, for a quick, beautiful beach look. I love to use it to spruce up second or third day hair, when it’s gotten really flat and lifeless. This tool just infuses my hair with so much volume, it’s incredible. — The three tourmaline ceramic barrels that you see heat up from 120°F to 390°F (50°C to 198°C), and all you have to do is clamp them over sections of your hair, no twisting of chunks of hair required, no distortions of the arms required either (check out the last slide of this post for a short demo). It’s truly such a convenient tool for cute, low key beachy waves. I’ve been using @amika’s un.done volume and matte texture spray in conjunction with this High Tide Deep Waver! It definitely helps with hold, but I may have to start looking into other @amika hairspray products to help maintain the finished look better. — Who has had the pleasure of using this guy? How’d it work for you? . . . #amika#trendingatsephora#OctolyFamily#hightidedeepwaver#amikatools#creasefree#beachywaves#beachyhair#summerhairstyles#happybean

@amorepacific_us gifted me this lovely Vintage Single Extract Essence recently!
@amorepacific_us gifted me this lovely Vintage Single Extract Essence recently! Let’s talk ✨ — What is it? It’s an anti-aging essence that was created to rejuvenate the appearance of skin’s clarity, tone and texture. Delivering the antioxidant power of @amorepacific_us’s Single Extract Formula™, this essence was made to promote prebiotics in order to prevent signs of aging on the skin. Vintage Tea Leaf™ contains an important substance found in green tea by the name of catechin, which helps to improve the skin’s appearance in regards to elasticity, texture and clarity. — My thoughts? This is a luxe product that I definitely enjoy using. It smells lovely, and it absorbs well into the skin. But if I’m being honest, do I see any dramatic results when using this, that justify the price tag? Not really 😕 I do find that I get a nice and bright, even-toned complexion upon using this, but nothing life changing, ya know? Will continue to use happily, but I don’t think I’d purchase a restock when I run out. . . . #AmorePacific#OctolyFamily#vintagesingleextractessence#vintageessence#AmorePacificessence#luxe#luxurybeauty#luxuryskincare#luxuryproduct#luxuryessence#frostedglass#prettypackaging#prettypackagingmakesmehappy

Hi friends! A little late night post for your viewing pleasure 🌙 Caudalie gifted
Hi friends! A little late night post for your viewing pleasure 🌙 Caudalie gifted me all of these babies, but just the Premier Cru Cream was gifted via Octoly, and she’s the one I’m reviewing tonight ✨ — 🍇 This one, she was made to brighten, visibly tighten and plump, smooth, and nourish skin in one step. She’s meant to target fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots and dull/uneven texture. 🍇 This baby has served as the foundation to the whole Premier Cru line, and it took a whopping seven years for the naturally sourced and potent formula to come to life. Resveratrol is there to life and firm, Viniferine brightens, and grape seed polyphenols protect the skin against environmental stressors. Plumping peptides help support collagen synthesis, and naturally-sourced grape and sesame seed oils deeply nourish and hydrate. 🍇 To be honest, it’s difficult to see the anti-wrinkles and firming benefits of this cream, given that I just have (almost) 24 year old skin. Still, I believe in preventative skincare! I’ve been using anti-aging skincare since I was about 18, and I believe in its importance. I will definitely vouch for how well this cream sinks in on top of the Premier Cru serum, and how it hydrates really well without feeling greasy or heavy on my skin. It’s a really comfortable cream to wear, and it mixes really well with facial oils too. Will happily continue to use and definitely recommend 👌🏻 . . . @mycaudalie@sephora#OctolyFamily

When @SoldeJaneiro gifted me their Brazilian Bod Buff, I was absolutely stoked -
When @SoldeJaneiro gifted me their Brazilian Bod Buff, I was absolutely stoked - another addition to my beautiful Sol de Janeiro family! Ya girl loves the good scent of the Bum Bum line, and she also loves a good body buff. — ☀️ Made with three different types of natural physical exfoliating agents, the earthy and grainy texture of the Bod Buff is meant to work as both a daily exfoliating scrub and a detoxifying treatment body mask. ☀️ Brazilian Quartz Crystal is a “master healer” in the form of a semi-precious gemstone that gently exfoliates the skin. Tropical Volcanic Pumice is a natural rock that helps to reveal the skin’s softest layers, Rice Grain is a gentle exfoliator that encourages natural skin turnover, and Amazon River Kaolin Clay, with its negatively-charged particles, bonds to positively-charged toxins and impurities for a purifying effect. ☀️ I’ve really enjoyed this Bod Buff - it’s definitely on the gentler side, and even though I prefer rougher, scrubbier body scrubs, this one definitely does a really good job at gently exfoliating my skin. If you’ve got sensitive skin, this one’s for you. It wasn’t super moisturizing due to lack of oils and moisturizing agents, but I did end up with noticeably smoother skin after using this. One con: the yellowish leftover tint that I noticed on parts of my body as a result of what I assume was the Amazon River Clay? Two pros: the delicious smell, of course, and how it left my hands so much smoother and softer, in a way that I never noticed other scrubs do. This one’s a yes from me and I would definitely purchase after running out! . . . #soldejaneiro#buffme#OctolyFamily#texturetuesday
