Degree Classic Romance Body Mist – I have long wondered how certain people get the scent of soap to last on their skin all day. Luckily, Degree Classic Romance body mist has answered the question for me. This light scent smells incredibly fresh and clean and is subtle enough to wear in conjunction with your regular perfume every day.


Skindinavia Makeup finishing Spray

Skindinavia Makeup Finishing Spray – Hot summer days can mean major makeup meltdown, but you don’t have to suffer the smudges anymore, thanks to Skindinavia’s Makeup Finishing Spray. Unlike other make up finishers, this mist is light and completely non-sticky, but keeps makeup put for an entire day. Even with the combined forces of my oily skin and the hot weather stacked against me, my makeup didn’t move one bit until the day was done.


SpaRitual Nail Lacquer in Airhead – Like many fans of the French manicure, I have been a longtime devotee of Essie’s Ballet Slippers polish. However, it may be time to hang up my dancing shoes for good, since I have fallen in love with SpaRitual’s Airhead color. This soft, baby pink is so similar to the color of my nails that it looks completely natural and effectively covers up any spots on my nails without being too opaque.


IQ Derma Firmaceuticals Firming Body Gel

iQ Derma Firmaceuticals Firming Body Gel – This unscented sculpting gel made my skin feel instantly firmer and baby soft. Although I already like the feeling this formula gives to my skin, when the changes become visible, I’m sure I’ll be shouting its praises from the rooftops.
