1. Dior Lip Scrub — This lip scrub is not harsh at all which is why I like it. This has actual sugar crystals that melt away to reveal super soft lips. I use this before bed.

2. MAC Lipstick in “Creme Cup” — Hands down the most perfect pink lipstick that exists. It goes with everything and isn’t too “in your face”. I’m not one to test the limits with lipstick, so this is one I can wear everyday and be okay with it.

3. IT Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi Balm in “Rose” — This is a balm that adjusts to your lips and give everyone a different shade. It’s one that you need in your possession every second of the day. I apply it several times daily for soft lips.

4. Glossier Balm DotCom in “Rose” — Glossier is genius to come out with a multi-tasking balm that isn’t just for lips. I also use this on cuticles to keep my nails healthy. Rose is the most popular shade (it’s barely tinted).

5. YSL Tint-in-Balm in “Call Me Rose” — I’m a sucker for packaging, and this is the prettiest tube I’ve ever seen. But the product is just as good. I CANNOT stand dry lips, so this gives just enough color all while still being hydrating.

6. NARS Lip Glide in “Paradise Garage” — NARS is my go-to for ride-or-die products. This plum color is the perfect shade to take you into fall. It looks good on everyone!

7. MAC Lipstick in “Velvet Teddy” — As much as I love “Creme Cup” for the perfect pink shade, I love “Velvet Teddy” for the perfect nude shade. MAC will never let you down on a product that works for everyone.

8. Buxom Lip Cream in “White Russian” — My favorite cream/gloss EVER! I have gone through tubes of these already this year. It’s just enough shine that people ask, “what are you wearing on your lips”? And it’s long lasting and NEVER sticky! #winning

Happy Wednesday y’all! I hope you are all getting into the swing of summer. Now is the prime time to get your tan on and brighten your hair! I love getting a sun-kissed look in the summer and carrying it into fall. It’s so funny because I was telling the girls at work…”life is so much better when you’re tan.” Anyone else agree? ;) Today I thought I’d share a review & how-to on my summer must-have: Sun-In hair lightener.

What is Sun-In?

Sun-In is a spray for hair that helps to subtly lighten strands using heat. I’m an advocate for this product, because the results are stunning. However, the results aren’t going to be too crazy. I like a classic looking highlight in my hair for summer.

How does it work?

Brunettes, listen up! This product is genius for us. With the intensive moisturization from botanicals, it helps to lighten hair slowly when combined with heat. It is alcohol-free!

How do I use it?

Step 1: After a shower, towel dry hair and brush out.

Step 2: Spray onto damp hair.

Step 3: Blowdry like normal.

Step 4: Reveal the results!

Remember, since Sun-In is heat-activated, you can use this product all year-round.

Can I see your results?

Sure! I will to show a before and after picture!

Before:

After:

You can see how the Sun-In definitely gave me a natural looking lightening! It looks like I got highlights.

Where can I get Sun-In?

This might be the best part! This product is very affordable (under $10) and available at Wal-Mart! It comes in 2 scents: tropical breeze & lemon-fresh. Both scents remind me of summer! I can’t pick a favorite, it’s too hard. I do like the pink bottle though ;)

If you’re looking for a super easy everyday routine for naturally curly hair, be sure to see this post.

Thanks to Sun-In for giving my hair a bright boost this summer and for sponsoring this post.

Hope you have all had a fantastic week. I’m excited that today is Friday, but I’m sad that our rain is over. I know, I’m probably one of like 3 people who LOVE rain so much. If it rained every single day, I would never complain. That’s why I thought I would be so happy in Seattle, but the sun was out the entire time I was there…HA! You’ve probably heard me talk about my issues with sunspots on my face, but today I wanted to share another issue that I have pop up from time to time…ACNE. I don’t even like to say that word. It’s almost as if a stigma has been built around it, but I’m here to smash any and all negative thoughts you have about it. Today I want to share how I’m solving my skin issue with MDAcne.

The lovelies over at MDAcne contacted me to see if I would be interested in trying out the service. I’m very picky about the companies I work with, so I had to do a little research first.

I came up with 3 reasons I felt MDAcne was a good fit:

{ONE} Modern, easy-to-use iPhone app

I am a child of technology. It’s just the way I was raised. I practically live on my cell phone and computer! The MDAcne app is simple to download and even simpler to use. With easy-to-follow instructions, this system will work for everyone.

{TWO} Actual doctors on staff

When you begin the MDAcne system, you will be assigned a doctor to complete your virtual visits with. This is IDEAL for those with mild acne who have little to no time to make an in-person office visit (like me). You can chat with the doctors anytime via the “CHAT” option on the app!

{THREE} Personalized routine

I began by taking a picture of my skin and submitting it via the app. The picture told the story of my skin and what was needed to get it back in (and keep it in) tip top shape.

I wanted to use my system for a few days before reporting back. I have to say that I was nervous to use products that might be too harsh for my sensitive skin, but don’t worry. This system has been working great for me. I don’t get too dry or too oily and my acne has been kept at bay.

My struggle:

Because I wear a lot of makeup, it can be easy for my pores to get clogged. That’s why a good cleanser is KEY. I almost think acne on generally clear skin is worse. When I get a breakout, it’s very obvious. I tend to get breakouts around my chin. It has come to my attention that I tend to touch my face a lot when I sleep or prop my head up with my hands when I’m watching TV. I have been paying particular attention to this area, and I haven’t had any breakouts so far using MDAcne!
