The first day of Spring has come and gone and I find myself changing up my skincare routine as we enter into Summer. Just as the seasons change so does our skin, thus resulting in a new skincare routine. In the Winter my skin is very dry resulting in the use of extra moisturizer. In Summer I’m on the oily end of the spectrum, with slightly more breakouts.

Comodynes: Convenient Cosmetics, the innovators of the makeup remover (MUR) towelette, has added two new makeup remover solutions to their beauty arsenal.
Their Purifying Cleanser, Micellar Solution is made for oily and acne prone skin. I mentioned earlier that with summer time comes oily skin and breakouts. This pack fits perfectly in my purse and is not only great for removing makeup but also gives me a fresh, oil free face while on the go.
The Purifying Cleanser Towelettes contain Willow Etract and Salicylic Acid to keep acne at bay. Throughly cleanses skin, removing impurities and excess oil, while soothing the skin and helping prevent acne flare-ups.
Olien Body is handmade in Fort Collins, Colorado and it next on this list. Hand made with only 5 ingredients! While having a body wash is great I, personally, like to use some sort of body exfoliating scrub to rid my body of dead skin. I’m loving this Orange Creme Fine Sugar Scrub from Olien Body. This is my first time using a citrus scented body scrub and I’m completely in love! Other scents available: Citrus, Eucalyptus, Lavender, Vanilla and Vanilla Must.
The Olien Body Exfoliating Coconut Oil and Fine Sugar Scrub makes for an excellent moisturizer. It’s safe for sensitive skin and gentle enough for daily use. I love how this particular scrub is great for use prior to waxing as I’ve used others before and they really irritate my skin!
For centuries, the Japanese have celebrated the annual flowering of the Cherry Blossom, or Sakura. This marks an awakening of nature and symbolizes that beauty is momentary and life must be enjoyed. Inspired by this tradition, The Ritual of Sakura collection blends the sweetness of Cherry Blossom with nourishing Organic Rice Milk, to make each day feel like a new beginning.
