Here’s a look at my three current beauty crushes…
• Kiehl’s Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Mask ($45)
If you have spent any time with me at all (either virtually or actually), you know I love Calendula. Part flower, part medicinal herb; it helps heal cuts, burns, diaper rash, insect bites, acne and more. I have been a fan ever since I first discovered Kiehl’s Calendula Toner about 20 years ago. It’s been my #1 holy grail beauty item from that moment on.
Kiehl’s added a Deep Cleansing Foaming Facial Wash a few years ago, which I use in the summer when my oily skin is acting up. And now, I have a new member in my Calendula army…
Kiehl’s Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Mask is aptly named. It’s a comforting gel mask with a cooling effect, perfect for when your skin is in distress. I think of it this way: if acne is the wound, Calendula Toner is the medicine and this Mask is the band aid. You know how good putting aloe on a burn is? Yeah, that’s what this feels like; one giant “ahhhh.”
• Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Oil Dry Oil Finishing Spray ($34)
I love using oils when styling my color-treated hair. The only problem is that it’s VERY easy to use too much, changing it from looking “nourished” to “dirty” in an instant. Bumble and Bumble solved that with their Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Dry Oil Finishing Spray.
Their original Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil contains six oils (argan, coconut, macadamia nut, sweet almond, safflower seed and grapeseed) that smell delicious and smooth like crazy. The Dry Oil Finishing Spray blends those same six oils into an ultra-light mist that also offers UV protection. It tames frizz, makes your hair amazingly soft and reduces the risk of overdoing it exponentially (I think that may be an oxymoron, but you know what I mean!)
• Sara Happ The Sweet Clay Lip Mask ($32)
I have no doubt you know and love Sara Happ’s The Lip Scrub. But have you seen her latest product, The Sweet Clay Lip Mask? As delicious as her scrubs are, this is BETTER.
Made with Bentonite Clay and Swertiamarin (from the plant Swertia), the bright pink, frosting-like mask is sweet to use, literally. It never dries on your lips, so you can use it as often as you’d like, for as long as you want. And it leaves your lips super soft without any manual labor. Not that I still love a good scrub, but this is more of a relaxing way to pamper your lips. I’m obsessed with it!
