There’s a CVS down the street from me, so when I’m bored I venture down there to stroll through the beauty aisle (that’s normal, right?). This past summer I had heard some buzz about a new skin care and make up line developed by the beautiful Salma Hayek. After doing some research, I found out that her stuff is paraben free and inspired by her grandma’s homemade beauty recipes. I’m sold!
Check it out!
I purchased 4 products, a cream cleanser, an exfoliating facial gel, a daytime moisturizer, and a balm.
The Chamomile Facial Cream Cleanser is $7.99 for 4.0oz.
It’s made with rice brand, passion fruit, and babassu oils. Consider me a fan of this! Gentle enough to use every day, it keeps my skin in line. And me likey that price tag, woohoo!
Next up is the Wild Lime Exfoliating Facial Gel, $7.99 for 4.0oz.
This is a nice alternative to the more traditional scrubbing exfoliating products. This one uses fruit acids, neem leaf extract, and green tea. It’s an enzyme exfoliation, you leave it on for 5-6 minutes and then rinse. Voila, smooth, radiant skin!
Now it’s time for the Renewed Radiance SPF 30 Moisturizing Day Cream, $16.99 for 1.4oz. (on sale right now for $13.59)
The most expensive thing I purchase in my mini haul here, but I’m always on the lookout for a good moisturizer with SPF. Most of the ones I have only have SPF 15, so it’s nice to see one that steps it up to the 30. This smells incredible, very fresh, a great way to start the day. However, it’s a tad heavy for my oily skin. If you have combo/dry skin, I think this will suit you just fine.
I use this stuff all the time! I keep it by my bed and apply it to my lips, cuticles, and elbows before I hit the hay. It has a faint rose scent, and the consistency of a lip balm. I love multipurpose products so this is right up my alley. It’s really moisturizing and simply… amazing!

I hope you guys are having a wonderful Tuesday! I watched The Runaways today, which stars Kristin Stewart as Joan Jett. The band was before my time so I really didn’t know much about them. I will say this: K-Stew is a fantastic actress! Dakota Fanning does a really good job as well (although, I kept thinking how cute she was in I Am Sam, seeing her kiss girls in this movie was a little odd). I have no idea how accurate the movie is, but I found it to be a very entertaining and well acted! Check it out if you can!
