Even though we are experiencing some June gloom in July summer is here. This is the time of the year we travel, go to the beach, barbecue, go swimming and basically partake in any and every activity you can do alfresco. Something people may not necessarily know is that you can still get sunburned on cloudy days. I always put on sunscreen if I know my skin is going to be exposed to the sun. There are those occasions however where I forget to reapply. I discovered the perfect solution for covering and healing redness that happens when mishaps occur with my sunblock. It's called gloRedness by Glominerals. This powder reduces redness while soothing the skin with ingredients that include honeysuckle, zinc oxide, licorice and caffeine. Glominerals products are talc-free, non-comedogenic and free of perfumes and chemical dyes. Their cosmetic line boasts an advanced combination of antioxidant complex of Vitamins A, C, and E and green tea extract, they provide UV protection and help to defend against free radical damage. They have a wide range of products that include under eye concealer, hydrating mist, lip gloss, shadows, powders, brushes, lengthening mascara and much more. It is always nice to discover cosmetic companies that care about my skin as much as I do.

I got the Dior Airflash foundation a couple weeks ago and I am really liking it. It is easy to use and does a great job of covering your imperfections without looking too caked on. It evens out your skin tone while giving it a luminescent glow. You can apply it in a few different ways. You can spray on your hand and apply it with your fingers, use a sponge, or by spraying it directly on your face. I have tried it all 3 ways. You use less by applying it with your fingers and you can still get great coverage. If you apply it with a sponge you can get the same effect but you end up using more of it. I was a little apprehensive about spraying it directly on my skin. But I closed my eyes and held my breath and sprayed it from my forehead to my chin. I was nervous to see the outcome but when I took a look in the mirror I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. So my final assessment of the product is that it is easy to use and has great coverage. I use it sparingly because I know it will go fast. It was worth the $60.00 but I will make sure to use it on special occasions so that I can hold on to it as long as possible.
