Let me set the stage for you, 110 degrees, 90% Humidity and smelly.
That was New York City for the past week. Unbearable basically. There was a massive heat wave and let me tell you something, it was wreaking havoc on my beauty regimen. Fortunately, my skin has been in tip top condition because I could not wear a stitch of makeup as it was SO hot I literally didn't want anything on my face. All I have been using is lip balm, a swipe of mascara and my secret weapon of choice, Caudalie Beauty Elixir.
How I love thee! It saved my life this week. How so?
First of all, it is very cooling and refreshing, it is in a spritzer bottle so at that time of day when I am so overheated a good spritz of this and I instantly feel better. It also smells amazing. It is smells reminiscent of an herbal scent, something lavender-y and minty. Additionally, when sprays it leaves a glow. No shimmer, no sparkle, just a glow from hydration. My favorite part about it, it is completely paraben and synthetic chemical free! This product is described as part toner, part serum mist of essential oils. Sign me up!
I picked mine up in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, but you can pick it up at Sephora for $16. It even has their seal of natural approval. Win Win!
This is a staple in my bag for those hot summer days!
