Just because summer is over, it's no reason to have dry skin and a dull complexion. We've scoured the shelves and tested out some of the best make-up products, lotions and potions to provide you with a beautiful summer glow all-year long. Check out Joonbug's top picks for head to toe beautification.
Protection: Pretty much the coolest innovation since blue sunscreen, Brush on Block ($24.95) is the answer to your sun protection prayers. This SPF is offered up in powder form, so no mess, no goo and best of all, it won't explode in your suitcase! The translucent SPF 30 powder is water-proof and does not clog pores or irritate the skin, unlike oily sunscreens. This unique and easy way to protect your skin was created by Susan Posnick, who is a seasoned makeup artist and a cancer survivor.
The holidays are for men too, ladies! Some men like a nice pampering session once in a while as well. (Even though they hate to admit it.) So we chatted with the men in our life, and found out what beauty gifts men love.
- A tended beard is always a good beard.
We found that guys love, a quick and easy routine without hassle. The “Jack Black” Face care collection is the perfect pick for the low maintenance man. You can find this set at Sephora. Within the set is a 2-in-1 facial cleanser, toner that removes deep-down dirt from clogged pores for clear, smooth, shave-ready skin. It also includes a pre-shave cream that's totally different from traditional whipped-cream style foams and gels. Finally, treat skin to a technologically advanced moisturizing treatment with a built-in sunscreen protector. This set keeps skin firm and healthy.
If you are a make-up and skin care fanatic like I am, you probably consider Sephora your sanctuary. It is the absolute "mother-ship" of all beauty stores! It is always there for you to lose yourself in endless lip gloss testing when you are feeling low, and definitely cheaper than a trip to your therapist! Fortunately, or unfortunately, this time of year it becomes chock- full of holiday promotions and gift sets. Aside from it being hard enough to find the perfect present for a friend, co-worker, or family member, now we are inundated with the rather impersonal, plethora of pre-packaged "gift sets".
