Sachajuan Ocean Mist

Posted on 07/25/2012

Shop Sachajuan haircare collection here!

Fresh from the sea beach hair is hard to recreate when you're at home juggling between hair sprays, volumizers and dry shampoos. In the end it can end up in a rat's nest type of disaster when really you only have to keep in mind that less is more. And when I say less, I mean one product and that would be Sachajuan's Ocean Mist. I happen to love any product that guarantees to give me that salty but sexy dirtiness that typically can only be accomplished by a dip in some tropical sea water and letting hair naturally dry in the breeze. Spritz some Ocean Spray on to wet or dry hair and your hair is left with a natural twist and volume that will have you looking amazing for a post beach cocktail! Vogue Summer Beauty Guide voted it as the best product to get beachy hair without the beach!

We have a new addition to our organic cosmetics category in RMS Beauty! This pure, organic cosmetic line has been wowing beauty editors overnight with many magazines praising it's amazing application and dual purpose products. In my opinion, RMS Beauty products are ideal for a woman on the go because their creamy formulations allow for quick and precise application. Started by makeup artist Rose Marie Swift after she started experiencing health problems due to exposure to toxic levels of heavy metals and pesticides, she decided she wanted to create a range that could never contribute to health risks. And she has as RMS Beauty is the first truly organic cosmetics brand anywhere in the world!

The RMS Beauty Raw Coconut Cream is one of my favorites in the range due to the fact that you can pretty much use it anywhere. Remove eye makeup, cleanse your face and then moisturize your face and body after! Because it remains in it's raw and unrefined state, every living enzyme and nutrient is left intact to cleanse and nourish in need skin. If you really want, you can use it as a deodorant too!

 

The RMS Beauty Oil is a product you want to constantly find an excuse to use. Containing the highest quality of vitamin rich exotic oils, you simply need to apply 2-4 drops to freshly cleansed skin and press in with your palms. Very lightweight in feel, this is the way beauty oil should be.

 

I love a great multi purpose product and RMS Beauty's Lip2Cheek ensures I'm out of the house in a jiffy and still looking nicely made up. This unique creamy formula comes in six different wearable shades that coat the lips and cheeks with a soft flush of color. Mineral color and nourishing organic ingredients hydrate and protect the skin and leave a soft and subtle shimmer in it's wake.

Shop the full St Tropez range here!

Achieving a fake tan flawlessly is trickier than it may appear. Extra steps taken pre-treatment can greatly improve the way a spray-on tan rests upon the skin. Remember those annoying dark patches that appear on knees and elbows? If you were to exfoliate prior to self tanning and apply a dab of moisturizer afterwards to those areas where we tend to get a buildup of dry skin then chances are lessened that color will cling to those areas and darken. These kind of tips were the subject in Allure magazine's feature on getting a flawless professional spray tan.

For those who want to forego a salon visit, there are many great at home products to choose from like St Tropez Everyday Gradual Tan Mousse. The leader in sunless tanning, St Tropez's Mousse glides on effortlessly and conditions the skin with aloe vera while providing a natural gorgeous bronze. No need to worry about the horrible smell that typically comes with sunless tanning because of their trademarked Aromaguard technology that eliminates smell by 70% and instead gives a refreshing and subtle fragrance. Hope these tips help you achieve the most effective and beautiful sunless tan all year round!
