Weekly Favorites #10

This week's favorites feature a lot of rediscovered products that I had forgotten how much I loved. Since my past week has been spent at the beach, most of them have been more skincare or tanning related products that are absolutely perfect for summer!

The first "rediscovered" favorite is the absolutely amazing tanning product, the Tarte Marajuca Face and Body Self-Tanner. I had forgotten just how well this works for creating a totally natural looking tan, but after using it religiously this past week I think I'm hooked again! I find that this is the perfect face tanner as it bronzes your face to a perfect glow instead of leaving any nasty orange-hue behind. The marajuca oil infused formula also helps to keep your skin hydrated and plump, which is lovely. I personally only use this on my face, because I find that my face is always a few shades lighter than the rest of my body when I'm tan. This helps me even out my skin all over to give me a natural looking, bronze glow.

Speaking of bronze-y products, the Honey Bronze Gel from The Body Shop has been another awesome way to add a little tan to my face. I've loved using this alone for a little glow, or combining it with a tinted moisturizer to add a bit more warmth and color to my face. Either way, it's a rediscovered love that I'll certainly be using more in the coming weeks. Another favorite I've been using to add a bit of color and just a teensy amount of coverage is the much raved about Origins VitaZing. I did a post on this awhile back, but I've since rediscovered just how much I love this guy. It somehow manages to perfect your skin (at any color, since it blends to your skin tone) without looking like you're wearing anything, my favorite kind of product! Totally natural, and a must have during these hot months when I haven't felt like wearing anything on my face.

Finally, my last favorite has been a godsend over the past week, and that is the amazing Blemish Fade Night Lotion from The Body Shop. This Tea Tree Oil lotion has always been a must have for me, but it's been working over time this past week as my skin suffered from a major breakout. For whatever reason, not wearing makeup or really any products did not agree with my skin this past week, and that combined with pore-clogging sunscreen caused a blemish overload. It was awful and, as someone who doesn't normally suffer from major breakouts, I didn't exactly know what to do. After just a few nights of using this, however, the red dots were tamed significantly, and I could not be happier. This guy has always been a major part of my skin routine, but this week especially I would say that it has definitely been a favorite of mine.
