Beauty products have come a long way – from nourishing formulas, to adorable packaging – makeup, hair and skin products are amazing from the inside out. To be completely honest, I’m a sucker for chic boxes, bows and bags (of course, the potion inside has to be awesome too) – but if it looks cute, I’ll try it!
Summer packaging in particular is my personal favorite. I absolutely love how the simple, light floral or tropical motifs brighten up a bathroom shelf or bedside table. And they make beautiful gifts, too. The following brands caught my eye this season.
Dr. Dewy Lip Protector: This is a brand new product on the market, created by a super chic friend of mine Melissa Akkaway. Not only is this lip balm extremely hydrating because it contains serum (perfect for sunburnt or chapped lips), it’s SPF 15: perfect for long days out in the sun (how often do we slap on the sunscreen but forget about our lips?). Bonus: the mint packaging is easy to spot in my makeup, beach, or daily tote bag.
True NARS Lip Pencil Set: How could you walk by this compact and not pick it up! Honestly, I’d buy it if it were an empty case – I love how it looks on my vanity! However, within the awesome limited edition packaging are 3 bold summer lip pencils (a vibrant pink, vivid watermelon, and fuchsia rose) perfect for day to night beauty. These colors look gorgeous with rosy, shimmer cheeks and a subtle eye, so lay off the mascara and amp up the MAC Strobe cream on top of your cheekbones!
Lollia Calm Bubble Bath: Unwinding in a tub of bubbles is by far one of my favorite at home remedies for any and every ailment. It’s my little piece of heaven. And why not make your bath area pretty as a peach?! I absolutely love the hefty hand-blown glass bottle (I’m thinking of re-purposing it as a small vase when I’m done) and the light scent of hyacinth and honey that lingers in the air afterwards.
