Collective Haul: Target,Lush,Ulta,Sephora & More

Over the Labor Day weekend I was able to get my hands on some really great sales! Yay for me! I picked up some really great products- some I ran out of and needed to replenish and some are brand new to my beauty world.

A main focus for me on this shopping trip was to find some really great hair products. My hair is naturally curly and on the courser side and after spending this summer in heat, sun, pool and ocean waves I am in desperate need of some haircare TLC. I ended up finding some amazing products that I am so excited to try and then report back to you guys!!

Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50

I believe it's so important regardless of age to use products that will protect your skin. It's never too early to start. I have used so many different skin products over the years everything from drugstore to high end and have found tried, tested and true products that I feel nourish my skin and help preserve it.

One important rule of thumb is to always use a lotion with an SPF and if you don't you should be applying some type of sunscreen to your face. Rain or shine SPF is an absolute must. It can mean the difference of looking 10 years older in no time.

I have said it before and I will say it again- I have very dry and very sensitive skin, which makes not only finding stand up products a challenge, but trying new ones can send my nerves through the roof. One wrong move and my skin is an absolute mess. Yet in order to find the gems you have to try and try again.

I recently started using the *Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50.  It is a medium-weight daily cream that contains a unique formula that accelerates the product's initial SPF 30 to a 50 and uses 50% less chemical agents. A technology called Oleosome- spheres of emollient oils and Vitamin E extracted from Safflower seeds.

This unique SPF technology allows the ingredients to deliver over time so maximum skin benefits are met. Not only does the daily moisturizer contain particular SPF benefits, but it also helps to reduce hyperpigmentation, and helps stimulate collagen- using the antioxidant properties of White Tea.

I have been using it for about 3 weeks now and I can honestly say that this lotion is a gem. It has the most amazing scent, but doesn't irritate my skin in the least. It also isn't heavy and absorbs quickly into the skin, but leaves my skin feeling hydrated all day. Which is rare for a formula that I would consider more light-weight compared to what I am used to using.

I think this a a great daily lotion and I feel really great knowing that my daily moisturizer is combined with such a powerful SPF. I don't have to worry about that extra step.

I highly recommend trying this product if you are looking for a daily lotion with SPF. If you are looking to try this product- check it out by clicking HERE!!
