Notes From My Vanity: Transitional Beauty



Maybe it is because I am in home-decorating mode, but the word "transitional" seems to fit my current beauty routine- moving from Spring into Summer, trying to go the low-maintenance route without sacrificing a polished overall effect.

Here are the three things in constant rotation at the moment:

Dove VisibleCare Toning Body Wash: As you know from reading my blog (because you check it every week religiously, right? right? RIGHT?), I have the honor of working with Dove on their Show Us Your Skin campaign this summer.  Clearly, as an ambassador for this program, I can't be caught with icky looking skin- so lucky for me I have access to an endless supply of Dove VisibleCare Toning Body Wash. I use it every single morning, and as such, I don't have to use moisturizer when I get out of the shower if I don't want to. And these days, even if I want to, I don't have time to. There are many different versions of VisibleCare- this particular one is designed to promote skin elasticity and strength.  Enriched with good ol' Vitamin E, it has the best lather  and happens to be the best shaving cream I have ever used. Oh- while we are on the topic, if you haven't yet uploaded your photo to the Show Us Your Skin campaign, you should.  And if your skin isn't in "show off" shape, go pick up this body wash. In one week, it will be. 

Rodin by Recine Hair Oil: Again, if you are a loyal reader you are aware of my love for Rodin Olio Lusso. The brand's hair oil is my nightly treat to myself. See, because of my Flywheel devotion, I have to wash  my hair every single day. Which is not ideal. So, before bed, I work this emollient-packed oil- complete with apricot kernel, calendula, sunflower seed, sweet almond, neroli, jojoba, rosemary and juniper- into my ends, to at least give them some respite from the constant washing and heat styling. It smells fantastic, and in my quest to grow my hair as long as possible, it provides the necessary TLC. 

Revlon Highlighting Stick: I use it as an eyeshadow and a cheek highlighter- the Golden shade is a touch warmer than your typical universal highlighting product so it works seamlessly with a subtle summer tan.  Get it now- it is limited edition. In which case, get two now. Or ten.
