Here are her summer recommendations:
Summer opens a myriad of possibilities for great skin care.
One of the greatest challenges is keeping up with the constant changing
needs of our skin while slowing individual aging clocks.
From experience, choosing summer a collection of beauty
and care products to get through summer has to be a
decision that works for you everyday. From topical solutions to
socially conscious tools, here are my top seven picks
tried and true to get you through summer with beaming skin.
Seamless and ultra light with every application,
Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation goes on to perfection the first time.
The flawless green formula provides a great base
for summer color of all hues. Discover just how pretty you
can be while wearing this! Vapour Organic Beauty
has a winner with this foundation, one of many products
in the award winning line up! www.vapourbeauty.com.
Sweet and spicy Vanilla Sugar Spice Scrub exfoliates the body
while providing incredible nourishing moisture.
I enjoy using this anytime of the day.
Based on certified organic olive oil and shea butter,
the spicy chai of this sugar scrub offers hours of enjoyable
let's-get-lost-in fragrance. Ohhlala! www.treehutshea.com.
NATOX is where innovative anti-aging science and
organic ingredients joyfully come together.
Each use makes my skin incredibly soft, softens any type
of under eye discoloration while removing the battery from my aging clock.
I like that this green beauty solution may be worn alone
or under cosmetic foundation. The packaging is a gorgeous glass bottle
(resembling a piece of Lalique) that keeps the formula cool enough
to send a soothing chill sensation through
the senses with each application! www.natox.com.
Summer moments are best created and preserved with
The softer side of this ancient potion offers long hours of
enjoyable wear and enough excitement to lure that special
someone to come a little closer!
Created by Krigler in 1955, Sweet Patchouli
was destined to be a new classic.
Cafe du Jour is the new red. If you're not sure about
wearing an actual red hue on your lips, this interpretation of
nature's passion may be for you! The versatile alter ego of classic red,
Cafe du Jour offers endless wear options with
just about every shade of hair color and skin tone.
The formula has been created with an amazing amount of Vitamin C
and wears for hours on end passing the
three cocktail or two cups of tea test.. If I had to sum it up Cafe du Jour,
this lip color can easily be the one you
have to have and never be without! www.marilynmiglin.com.
I try to be as socially conscious as possible in selecting cosmetic products.
The Essentials brush set was a complete win and every vegans dream. Natrafil®
offers eight highly useable professional makeup brushes unlike all others.
Housed in a gorgeous faux obsidian crocodile zipper case,
this super set offers ergonomic tapered handles and bristles so soft,
you'd swear they were natural. Natrafil® bristles are a
product of DUPONT. Regular use produces beautiful
makeup application while preserving a youthful appearance.
Try one or try them all, these super six are
bound to have some sort of positive impact on your life.
They are all simple to use and can be easily worked
into the busiest schedule. The best part about using these
life enhancing elements is that they may be used daily
and they travel well! Finish summer with a beautiful bang!
So there you have it, Mary's 6 summer recommendations.

Mine would be coconut oil ;-)
