A Few Makeup And Skincare Discoveries From Crunchi Beauty

A Few Makeup And Skincare Discoveries From Crunchi Beauty

Crunchi is a brand that I recently discovered and tried out a few of their clean skincare and makeup launches. Crunchi is a clean brand, formulated with safe, certified organic, non-gmo ingredients. The Smart Primer ($48; is a smoothing primer that helps smoothen pores, fine lines and achieve the perfect canvas for makeup. I love the texture and consistency of this primer and how easily it absorbs into the skin, leaving a sheer finish. The Daylight Daily Facial ($48; Cream and Nightlight Evening Cream ($48; are perfect additions to your day and night time routine if you like a clean, no nonsense formula with great textures. They are both made from non-gmo, gluten-free, non toxic, vegan ingredients. The day cream is light, works really well under makeup, while the night cream is slightly richer, but not greasy or tacky. I also like the Hydrogloss Lipgloss ($28; which is a tad sticky, moisturizing and overall long-wearing with a subtle minty tingle.

The No.1 Brush for Foundation ($44; and No.2 Brush for Powder ($48; are fantastic, well made and have lasted me through multiple washes without shedding or changing the shape. The fibers are super soft and very gentle on the skin. The Translucent Finishing Powder ($34; is a lightweight setting powder that is talc-free. On my medium-dark skin tone, it helps set makeup and adds a soft focus glow. If you are darker, I would recommend going light handed with this and the No.2 Brush works great with this powder!

C.O Bigelow Bergamot Bath And Body Care

C.O Bigelow’s Iconic Bath and Body Care collection features some fabulously fresh scents that are perfect for this time of the year. I love citrus fragrances and this one is no exception. The Bergamot Body Wash ($20; is a concentrated body wash with a beautifully luxurious, foamy texture. It washes off clean and leaves no residue behind. I love the consistency and how long this bottle has lasted me. The Bergamot Body Lotion ($24; is a perfect summer body lotion that smells like fresh bergamot and leaves a lasting fragrance behind. It absorbs quickly and doesn’t feel sticky. It also has a nice consistency that can work for all through the year and also on hot and humid days without feeling like you have a layer of body cream on. The Bigelow Body Cream ($24; is a slightly thicker version of the lotion, but also a lovely cream for winter or anytime really, if you have dry skin like me. It also doubles up as a rich hand cream and leaves you smelling super fresh. I also think the fresh, zesty fragrance is something both men and women can use!

New Beauty Launches From Lancome I've Been Loving Lately

Lancome has been releasing some fabulous new launches lately and here are some that I’ve been loving this season. The Lash Idole Waterproof Mascara ($27; and Liner ($22; are perfect for hot and humid days since they are both budge proof and very waterproof. The pigment is dark and I needed a good, oil-based makeup remover to get it off completely. The Idole Liner has a very fine, slightly firm tip that is super easy even for a beginner to use. It is very precise for thick and thin lines and is a breeze to wing your liner out. The mascara is volumizing and lengthening without making lashes clumpy. The brush helps with lashes look clean and separated.

The Le 8 Hypnose Mascara ($32; is a serum- infused mascara made of 91% black balm, 8 revitalizing amino acids and shea butter and is volumizing without making lashes crunchy even after a good two coats. The luxe, heavy packaging feels fabulous and gives me great grip while using, especially since I have short, stubby lashes and most mascaras with bigger brushes can be tricky to use. While it isn't waterproof, it doesn't flake through the day and keeps lashes looking soft.

Also new is the Oui La Vie Est Belle Fragrance ($135; It's a sweet floral concoction with notes of Iris, Rose, Jasmine, Bergamot, Patchouli, Pink Pepper and Juicy Raspberry. It's a beautifully sophisticated fragrance for all through the year that is intense yet slightly zesty and fresh at the same time. It's a very different take on the signature La Vie Est Belle with lighter notes, perfect for spring and summer.
