New Summer Skincare Items

Summer is here and we all know that skin care is extremely important! I have discovered some new items that I have tested out and I would love to share them with you all.

Brooklyn Body Butter: Baby Butter

I have always been a fan of Shea butter. However, Shea butter can be very annoying to apply to your body since it is very hard. Brooklyn Body Butter saves the day with their whipped body butters that melt onto your skin. The butter is made with Shea butter and various oils that hydrate the skin. Finally, these products are handmade and are extremely fresh! Brooklyn Body Butter comes in various scents but my favorite scent is Baby Butter. Baby Butter smells like baby powder but unlike baby powder, it only contains natural ingredients. I strongly encourage everyone to try this product!

Drunk Elephant: C-Firma™ Day Serum

I have used many vitamin c serums in the past. Vitamin C is amazing for your skin and helps prevent aging but not all products are created equal. Drunk Elephant is an amazing brand. They are a natural and fragrance-free brand that makes quality products. I tried a sample of the C-Firma™ Day Serum from my local Sephora and I was blown away by the results! My skin had a glow (without any makeup on) and pores looked instantly smaller. I recommend that everyone use this product in the morning after they are done cleansing and toning.

Aini Organix: Botanical Skin Conditioner

You can never have too many moisturizers! I love this product because it is creamy and easy to apply. Also, it is made with Shea butter and several organic ingredients. My favorite part about this product is that it includes tea tree oil. Tea tree oil is great for improving the scalp. One can use this product as a treatment for scalp ailments like dandruff and itchy scalp this summer!

Native Deodorant

Summer is the time of the year when deodorant is needed the most. I have been trying to live a healthier lifestyle and use natural and organic ingredients as much as possible. I happened to come across Native Deodorant and decided to give them a try this summer. Native Deodorant has several deodorant fragrances for men and women. They are also made in the United States, aluminum-free, paraben-free, made with natural ingredients, and the company offers free shipping and returns! Finally, if you are still hesitant about giving this company a try… please use this coupon code “IGAUGUST10” to take ten percent off of your future purchase!

YUNI: Shower Sheets

YUNI has created these amazing rinse-free shower sheets! These shower sheets are also great for you and the environment because they are natural and free of GMOs.Summer is typically when people love to travel. If you will be on a train ride for two days or on an airplane ride to a far away nation then you need to have this product.


Grace & Stella Co.:  2-in-1 Body Exfoliating Brush & Massager

I absolutely adore this product! Summer is here and I love to make sure that the skin on my body is looking amazing and is ready for shorts and skirts. This brush reduces the appearance of cellulite and dull skin so it is nice for the everyday woman. What is even more amazing about this product is that for an affordable price you get so much! The brush comes with a travel size body cream, a travel bag, and a shower hook. I almost forgot to mention that this brush has a massager which was really soothing after a long day of studying for my LLM and bar exam.
