Essential Products For Sensitive Skin


Sensitive skin is just that, finicky and fragile. From dry and oily to dermatitis and itchy, it is important to find the right daily skin care routine that lifts us up. Here are a few essential products for sensitive skin that work to effectively clean and balance skin with gentle, natural ingredients. 

Cut the Cost of Your Beauty Routine

This cleanser includes Aloe paired with rice and cotton extracts that cleanse the skin while giving back its moisture. The creamy texture is gentle and soothing unlike harsher cleansers that strip the face.

This alcohol-free, Witch Hazel toner is made with Aloe Vera and Rose Petal to cleanse, tone, and moisturize while helping deliver pH balance to the skin. The refreshing antioxidant and antibacterial properties of this product are a must have to turn sensitive skin into a supple glow.

The gentle moisturizer pairs well with its matching cleanser, and helps provide a good, more natural skin barrier. Delivering hydration without irritation, this light cream spreads nicely over sensitive skin, leaving the face feeling fresh all day. 

This mask delivers excellent results just after a single use, even for sensitive skin. Made with coconut charcoal, this product provides a deep cleanse while also retaining moisture and avoiding irritation. The added benefits of rosehip oil and organic reishi mushrooms alleviate irritation, aid in preventing breakouts, and keep the skin soothed and hydrated. 

A cheaper option, but delivering similar benefits, this Zinc and Sulfur mask is great for acne prone sensitive skin. Made with Tea Tree Oil, Camphor, Willow Bark Extract, and special formula Alp Sebum, this product fights bacteria, cools and calms skin, and fights inflammation and clogged pores. 

Try using the Bert’s Bees cleanser followed by Thayer’s toner, or use one of the masks for a deeper cleanse. Use the Bert’s Bees moisturizer before heading out the door, or getting ready for bed. Giving your skin the nutrients it needs will keep it calm, cool, and fresh!

No-Fuss Summer Lips


The sun is plastered against a clear blue sky, school is out, and your earbuds are blasting your favorite song. Summer time means no worries, and there are only three precious months of it to enjoy before school starts again. Don’t waste time in front of a mirror when you could be on the beach, underwater, or partying. These classic summer lips will help salvage those few extra minutes you need to pack some extra bottles of water into your cooler.

In honor of summer holidays, like Flag Day or Labor Day, fully embrace your red, white, and blue spirit with some fiery red lips. For perfect lines (and so that you don’t have to constantly reapply), fill your lips with liner after lining them to your desired shape. It might feel odd, but this provides lips with extra primer, and if your lipstick does wear off, no one will notice! Try Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in “Gash” ($19.00) underneath your red. The creamy liner will cover every spot.
Princess Pink
It’s summer! Grab an umbrella drink, your bikini, tanning oil, and embrace your inner girly-girl. Shades of pink will help increase the effect of tanned skin. Lady Gaga’s Mac Viva Glam is just enough pink to brighten up any look.

Au Naturale
If it’s too humid for an intense look, and your face is melting before you can even apply concealer, then your best bet is to go natural! I don’t mean skinny dipping, though. Any lip balm will saturate lips, but for a super glossy finish, apply a tiny amount of non-tinted aloe vera to lips. It’s a natural lip gloss that will get you noticed while curing sunburn.
Duck face or prune pout, these basic lips are essential to get you through the rest of summer. So pucker up and get ready to hashtag your favorite looks all summer long.
