Speaking of weather, damn it's hot! I've been keeping my cool by storing some of my beauty products in the fridge - just don't do it if there is a warning on the package to keep the product out of extreme temperatures! I also find that lotions in a pump bottle become too thick to pump out so I avoid chilling those too.
Here's what I've been keeping on ice:
Benefit Ultra Radiance Facial Re-Hydrating Mist - 133ml - $30 - It's funny that your skin can feel oily and sweaty yet at the same time dry! Not only does this spray hydrate your skin but also soothes and refreshes. With magnesium PCA and white & blue lotus extracts to help skin combat stress as well as relax and soothe the skin and sodium hyaluronate, a powerful hydrating agent capable of holding up to 1,000 times its weight in water, obviously to hydrate.
You can use it after you cleanse, use it to set and/or refresh your makeup or just use it as a pick-me-up throughout the day!
The only thing that I don't love about it is the smell - I can't put a finger on exactly what it is - it seems almost cucumber-y to me which is not a favourite scent of mine - but as the smell dissipates almost immediately and my skin feels so refreshed after using it, I can deal!
Available at Shoppers Drug Mart, Murale, Sephora and Holt Renfrew.
For ultimate coolness, store this one in the freezer. Contains rosemary and geranium essential oils for a kick of energy as well as a mix of lemon, lime and grapefruit juices to increase circulation while cleansing skin. Tear off a small piece of jelly and lather it in your hands or on a shower loofah. It's like washing with jello!
Available from your Avon rep - 1-800-265-AVON or online at www.avon.ca
Other things I'm thinking would be great from the fridge: After Sun Lotion - especially if you have a bit of a burn, Toner, well really I can't think of anything these days that wouldn't be better cold! I'd love your suggestions!
