Let me tell you a little bit about these skincare essentials!
Radiant Cleansing Balm
This is a best seller, and I can see why! I used it to remove my makeup last night, and I woke up to smoother skin than I usually do! Plus, I love the spa-like experience the Radiant Cleansing Balm evokes for me. It just has this clean, luxurious, faint scent that definitely help me relax at night! I bet the spa-like scent can be attributed to these key ingredients:
- Moringa Oil– for luminosity
- Lipexel™– for hydration (must-have for thirsty skin in summer)
- Black Seed Oil– antioxidant
- Aromatic Complex– calms and decongests skin
Matcha Tea Treatment Toner
This Matcha Tea Treatment Toner is the perfect companion to the Radiant Cleansing Balm. Let the spa-like experience continue. Woohoo! I use a cotton pad to sweep it all over my face and enjoy benefits from these ingredients:
- Matcha tea to protect against free radical damage
- French algae to absorb extra oil
- Prebiotic to balance microflora
- Fermented plankton for essential hydration
Sheer Renewal Cream
I top off this 3-step spa-like skincare routine with Colleen Rothschild’s Sheer Renewal Cream to really lock in the anti-aging process with these key ingredients:
- Detoxophane™ for environmental defense
- Mutlifruit® BSC, which speeds up cell turnover
- Syn®-Tacks to reduce the appearance of wrinkles (Yassss!)
- Moist 24™ for 24 hour hydration (which you totally need, especially in the summer!)
Since starting this skincare routine, my skin has been noticeably smoother!

Sorta Sweet, Sweet, & Unsweetened Teas from Straight Up Tea
Like I mentioned earlier, I am extra thirsty in the summertime, and these iced teas from Straight Up Tea are extremely refreshing!
Everyone likes their iced tea prepared differently, but don’t worry, Straight Up Tea straight up has you covered! 😉 I even like my tea prepared differently depending on my mood! But since these teas are prepared, I can satisfy my thirst and my mood by simply opening my fridge! And they are ALL NATURAL! Heres’ the breakdown on the different kinds:
- Sorta Sweet: fresh-brewed black tea with a hint of sugar (my fave)
- Sweet: fresh-brewed black tea with real (not artificial) sugar
- Straight Up Tea: all-natural black tea, just straight up
Seriously refreshing. I love having my fridge stocked with these, during the summer especially!
Sunglasses from Zenni Optical
Okay- These Zenni sunglasses are a MUST!! Not only are they absolutely adorable (I love this black metal cat eye style- so attainably fashion forward!), but their flat metal frames are suuuuper light. Seriously, they are the lightest pair of sunglasses I own! I don’t even realize they are on my face! Also, I find it really easy to look through the gradient gray tint lenses.
What else do I love about Zenni eyewear?
- You can add a prescription and/or customized tints!
- There are six different mirror finishes to choose from that are fingerprint-resistant and have an anti-reflective coating.
I am so happy I have these sunnies, so I can fight sun-induced wrinkles in style! I might even look into getting a prescription pair so that I don’t always have to wear my contacts!

When you, your skin, and your hair aren’t dying of thirst, you’re much happier. Amiright?! And when you know you’re protecting your skin with premium SPF and anti-aging ingredients, it’s a huge bonus!
