Product Review: Bobbi Brown's Beach

To me, the perfect summer fragrance either smells like what I imagine tropical vacations smelling like or it's similar to sunscreen. Bobbi Brown's "Beach" perfume is the perfect summer fragrance. This perfume smells just like sunscreen, which to me is amazing.

I was on the fence about buying this perfume for awhile because it is pretty pricey for a perfume that I will only wear in the summer, but I'm so glad I finally bought it. The scent is the perfect pick me up during the day and it makes me feel like I'm on vacation when I'm actually at work or in school. I can't stop talking to my friends about this fragrance.

I recommend this fragrance to anyone who wants a summery scent or really loves the smell of sunscreen. One tip: buy the rollerball version as well. This scent doesn't have amazing staying power, which is unfortunate since it is pricey so the rollerball will help keep the fragrance alive during the day.

Product Empties #2

June was a busy month for me, and July has been too so far! Here are the products I've used up recently and if I would repurchase them!

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla
I usually use drugstore concealers for my everyday use, but I heard everyone rave about this concealer from Nars so I figured I would give it a try. I love it! I use the color vanilla which is for fair complexions with pink undertones. I would recommend going into Sephora and having them colormatch you.

Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47
I absolutely adore Josie Maran products and this moisturizer is a favorite. Usually SPF moisturizers break me out, but this one doesn't and it leaves my skin feeling soft and not greasy. I recommend this for people with sensitive dry skin, but fair warning it will make your foundation look cakey if you're wearing a lot of make up.

Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 in Bisque
This has been my go to lately for getting ready in the morning. I've gone through several tubes of this trying to find my right shade and I think Bisque is the right  color for me. I love how easy it is to apply in the mornings.

Nest Candle in Moroccan Amber
I love the scent of this candle and the throw is excellent, but I won't be repurchasing it for me because it's too expensive. It does, however, make a great gift.

Clinque Moisture Surge Intense
This has been my favorite nighttime moisturizer. I apply it at night and when I wake up my skin looks refreshed and glowing. Perfect for those with sensitive dry skin.

Bastiste Dry Shampoo in Wild
This is my favorite scent of Batiste, but I love all of the others as well. My favorite dry shampoo because it blends easily into my hair and I'm a brunette.

Covergirl Lashblast Clump Crusher in Black Brown
I typically use blackest black in mascaras, but lately I've been using black brown for work because I feel like it looks more natural. I will repurchase this because I love it on its own and layered with other mascaras.

Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil
As I said before, I'm obsessed with Josie Maran (I promise I'm not sponsored!). This cleansing oil takes off all my make up and doesn't break me out. I will be repurchasing this because I love it so much.
