Summer is soooo close I can taste it, you know what I mean? Well thanks to the brilliant new faux glow products from Bare Escentuals we can all enjoy the warm glow and shimmer of the summer before it even arrives! Let me tell you about five FAB new products from their bareMinerals line and two from their Buxom brand – Let the bronzing commence and the golden goddesses emerge!
This is a quick-drying sunless tanner that contains a unique tanning peptide that delivers a subtle, golden glow which gradually develops into a natural-looking tan over time. It also contains a mineral copper complex that works to prolong your faux glow, while plant-derived emollients help to lock in moisture without clogging pores. I love the lightweight gel texture that instantly absorbs into you skin, it has a fresh crisp scent and the guide color gives you a just hint of bronze before the tan develops.
This sunless body tanner instantly delivers an all-over bronze glow that develops into a golden, natural-looking tan that lasts 5-7 days. Faux Tan Body also contains a mineral copper complex that prolongs your tan, while aloe vera and vegetable-derived emollients provide hydration so that your skin feels soft and smooth. I love the lightweight lotion that instantly gives you a nice hint of color that develops into a beautiful warm tan as well as the light almond scent that I almost want to eat.
This is a nourishing moisturizer with a nice level of SPF protection and a flattering hint of skin-illuminating color. Advanced Protection contains a proprietary ActiveSoil Complex with essential antioxidants and nutritive minerals that defend against environmental damage. I love the lightweight texture and instant absorption and that it gives my skin a healthy, even-toned glow.

I Can’t Wait to See You My Beauties!
I recently attended the Natural Products Expo West which showcases the latest in healthy foods, nutrition and beauty products and I walked the show floor scouting health and beauty trends and this year it was all about COCONUTS! Coconut milk, coconut water and coconut oil and they all have a myriad of benefits, nourishing qualities and they taste yummy too! So it was not surprising that I began to notice that many products on the show floor were featuring coconut as a beauty enhancing ingredient and then of course when I got home I noticed more coconut infused products.
Coconut is a fabulous beauty enhancing ingredient because it contains fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that make it an excellent moisturizer, anti-inflammatory and antiviral as well as an acne treatment. Coconut Oil is a wonderful natural skin moisturizer because it absorbs quickly into your skin and makes it soft, supple and radiant. Coconut oil is also a fantastic nourishing hair treatment because it infuses your hair with protein, repairs damage and makes hair healthy and shiny.
Following are 7 COCONUT infused beauty products that I am currently CUCKOO for:
Pacifica recently came out with a fabulous array of new (and affordably priced) skincare and makeup products that feature Coconut as it’s star ingredient. I am OBSESSED with these addictive Coconut water infused natural towelettes that gently cleanse your face while removing toxins, oil, and make-up from your skin. In addition to coconut, these wipes also contain papaya, a natural exfoliant to help revive skin and remove dead cells and aloe vera and calendula to soothe and calm your skin. I love the yummy subtle tropical scent, how effective they are at cleaning my skin and removing makeup and the super affordable price.
These are swoon-worthy coconut infused multi-use creamy shimmering colors for highlighting, luminizing and adding radiance to your face and body. This natural mineral makeup formula comes in three summer fab shades: Bronzed – a sun-kissed bronze with a golden shimmer, Island Rose – a shimmering, radiant dewy pink and Moonlit – an iridescent pale champagne color with a moon-kissed shimmer. I love the lovely hint of a coconut scent which I find very unique for a makeup product, the gorgeous sheer skin flattering shimmering shades and the beautiful radiance and glow that it gives to my skin.
