Juice Beauty is an awesome beauty brand was I was excited to try this soothing, hydrating cleanser. This product keeps blemishes at bay with a combination of certified-organic botanicals. The gel formula has an organic juice base that’s rich in healing nutrients and antioxidants. After using this product twice daily, I noticed a marked improvement in the look of my skin.

A good body wash can turn your shower into a relaxing spa-like experience. This product from Gilchrist & Soames is packed with extracts of Japanese sea wrack which hydrates and reinvigorates skin. The fragrance smells great with a blend of fresh aqualeaf and citrus. This product has a great lather too and will definitely be one of my shower staples.

I love a good lip gloss…especially one that comes from theBalm. This Read My Lips gloss features vivid pigments and tons of shine that makes lips look fuller. The non-sticky formula is comprised of a number of antioxidants including ginseng. This gorgeous rosy pink shade is super flattering and has day-long staying power.

If your hair is dry or damaged a quality conditioner can help bring it back to life. This product features honey which naturally hydrates hair and leaves it silky and manageable.
