Monthly Beauty Buys: May

This month went by so quickly.  I’ve been going makeup-free for the most part, but I’ve got some great new hair, makeup and skincare finds for you!

For effortlessly messy summer hair…

I’m really liking R+Co TROPHY Shine & Texture Spray for beachy hair.  It isn’t stiff or matte, and it smells so good.

Alina Gonzalez aka @thehyperbalist did a mini-tutorial on air-drying your hair and recommended Dove’s new Quench Absolute Detangler, a favorite of celebrity stylist Mark Townsend, the man behind Mary-Kate and Ashley’s air-dried hair.

For glowing, safe summer skin…

I love everything Ole Henriksen makes; he’s a visionary in the skincare world and has been for decades.  This new Pore-Balance Facial Sauna Scrub is no exception: it brings the luxury of the spa into my bathroom, with a warming sensation and ingredients that leave my skin glowing and clear.

Glossier Invisible Shield SPF 35 is my motivation to wear sunscreen every. damn. day.  It goes on smoothly over my moisturizer and I swear it makes a better base for my makeup, too!  Read my full post here.

For gorgeous no-makeup makeup or makeup-makeup…


I firmly believe that you can never have too many highlighters, and since I love my BECCA ‘Champagne Pop’ so much and adore Chrissy Teigen, I had to buy the BECCA X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette.  It’s got a blush, bronzer, and two highlighters for all your bronzed goddess needs.

That’s all for May! (said in Justin Timberlake voice)

Love, Me (May)
