Brighten your skin with Lumene's Vitamin C+

A Finnish skincare brand that I am currently loving is Lumene. I have been incorporating their Vitamin C+ products in my daily routine this past month and couldn't be happier. This line contains Arctic Cloudberry which is a rare berry that is grown in a very short amount of time. First their Bright Skin Radiance Nectar is a liquid based gel that you can use alone, or before moisturizing. It's lightly scented and keeps my skin looking smooth and glowing. It's formulated to also exfoliate your skin.
The other Vitamin C+ product I received for review is the Pure Radiance Beauty Drops. There are 28 capsules in the jar- one for each day- and this is my favorite! It moisturizes and also leaves my skin feeling absolutely matte smooth. These are so easy to bring when traveling or just on the go. Definitely have seen an improvement in my complexion after incorporating these products in my routine.

Summer Travel Essentials: Lumene Cleansing Wipes

Wipes are a girls best friend! Especially on these hot, humid days! I recently went to an amazing Lumene event in the city which showcased their different lines. (Note: these Products from Finland are available at CVS stores!)
I instantly fell in love with their Vitamin C+ which I will detail in a separate post later.. But vitamin C+ = brighter skin!
For traveling the Lumene Sensitive Touch- perfect for those who have sensitive skin like myself- carries gentle cleansing wipes to remove makeup, dirt, oil-anything! It leaves your skin completely hydrated which is nice and doesn't leave a residue. You'll feel refreshed and who doesn't like that?

Also I tried their Cleansing Emulsion, for those who want to use a gentle cleanser. Also moisturizing and left my skin feeling amazing! Their Arctic Aqua Moisture Booster is the moisturizer you want for the summer- it is water based and doesn't feel heavy at all. It is completely hydrating and I definitely felt a difference after my first use.

Summer Travel Essentials: Conair's new Hairdryer

One of my Summer Travel Essentials is bringing my own hairdryer. I know most hotels nowadays have their own but they're usually the ones on the wall and take forever to dry my hair. For my travels this summer, I'll be bringing the new Conair Infiniti You Reel Folding Handle Dryer. The handles folds neatly into the body of the dryer and the cord also reels into the handle which is perfect. It occupies less space in my suitcase and works like a charm.

Performance-wise? It's fabulous! It's super powerful and leaves my hair shiny and dry in great time. It has 3 heat and 2 speed switch settings (high and low) similar to what I'm using now. I've been using Conair's hairdryers non-stop since I was introduced to their Infiniti Pro Salon Performance AC Motor Styling Tool in 2010 (which I nickname the orange hairdyer.) It's salon-powerful but can be quite bulky for travel, which is why I'm so glad I have the new You Reel dryer as part of my travel essentials.
