Elemis Daily Defense Shield SPF30


Elemis Daily Defense Shield SPF30


Elemis’ Daily Defense Shield SPF30 ($60; elemis.com) is a new broad spectrum protection daily sunscreen that doubles up as a lightweight moisturizer. It has a beautiful,lightweight texture that goes on more like a lotion and feels like nothing on the skin. I usually skip my moisturizer when I use these types of sunscreens and I find this to be moisturizing by itself without the need for an additional layer of moisture. There’s absolutely no white cast and my sensitive skin hasn't broken out or has had any reactions to the formula. It is also easy to remove and leaves behind no greasy residue as well. Overall, I’d highly recommend this for anyone looking for a great sunscreen that feels moisturizing, non-greasy and absorbs quickly!

Kerastase Nutritive Hair Care


Kerastase Nutritive Hair Care



The Kerastase Nutritive haircare range is targeted at dry to very dry, frizzy hair that is prone to a lot of heat styling and damage. I recently tried a few products from the line and loved them for my fine, yet frizzy hair that gets very dry on the ends and has oilier roots. Bain Satin 2 ($50; kerastase-usa.com) is a very rich, nourishing shampoo that cleanses and moisturizes. Its a very concentrated, thick formula and a little goes a really long way with this one. It lathers and washes off very well. I would recommend a clarifying shampoo once a week when using this one, especially if your roots tend to get oily overtime with richer haircare products. The Lait Vital ($34; kerastase-usa.com) is a super lightweight, yet hydrating conditioner that I love. It feels light, does’t weigh hair down and detangles beautifully. Both the Masqueintense Thick and Fine ($53; kerastase-usa.com)  are ultra hydrating masks that smoothen unruly hair and leave it soft and bouncy.  I loved both these as a weekly/bi-weekly treat and would recommend if you want intense hydration, especially if you heat style often. Overall, a great haircare range for anyone looking for a few luxurious, super intensely hydrating products to add to their haircare routine.

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Nectar Eau de Parfum Intense


Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Nectar Eau de Parfum Intense


Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Nectar Eau de Parfum Intense ($120; sephora.com) is a gorgeous, warm, spicy, aromatic composition that is much like the original Flowerbomb, but sweeter and a lot more floral. Flowerbomb Nectar has notes of orange blossom, jasmine, osmanthus, benzoin, vanilla and tonka bean. The opening is heady, slightly heavy on the orange blossom and much like the original. This one dries down to a much floral, yet sweet vanilla-benzoin mix that makes it a good one for the late summer-fall seasons. The longevity is great and the pink bottle perfectly matches the description of the perfume. Overall, if you love the original Flowerbomb, and want something less patchouli heavy and more floral and sweet, check this one out!
