I scooped this per Jay’s step-moms recommendation and I must say… Just when you think you’ve removed all of your makeup, you haven’t. This Simple Cleansing Micellar Water removes every last bit of your daily grime and leaves you fresh-faced and fancy free. BONUS: It’s $7. Simple.

3. Polish: Essie has done it again {no surprise} with their Fall 2014 collection. “Take It Outside” is hands down our favorite shade.

skin matters.

We had the privilege of attending the launch of the latest Dermalogica Hybrid space in Atlantic Station last week. To say we were blown away is an understatement. The space offers consumer education, sales and training as well as a retail area and interactive classroom. The first concept of Dermalogica’s hybrid location opened last year in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Attendees included Dermalogica founder Jane Wurwand; Heather Hickman, senior director of U.S. education, and Diana Howard, Ph.D., vice president of global education and research and development. All skincare geniuses. We were fortunate to be able to pick their brains (at a private dinner! so VIP!), and we were so impressed with their knowledge and enthusiasm for the brand.

To be expected, the products are nothing short of amazing. After a week of using the special cleansing gel, multi-active toner, and daily micrfoliant, our skin has totally recovered from winter. Next up, the multivitamin power recovery masque. We hear this product is life changing. Stay tuned for our review…

Eslor Skincare System: Really enjoyed sampling this line. The cleanser leaves your skin feeling soft, then following it up with the facial scrub made my skin feel super clean. You don’t need a lot of the moisturizer to cover your face. A little bit goes a long way!

Fatty Sundays Gourmet Chocolate Covered Pretzels: Such a yummy treat! Sweet and salty perfection.

Camille Beckman Glycerine Hand Therapy™:The CURE for wintery, chapped hands. This feels great and is hydrating, but doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy so I can’t touch things after I use it!

Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss: This gloss is great for a sheer, shiny tint of color alone or on top of your favorite lip stick!

Number 4 Non-Aerosol Hairspray: Meh. Nothing exciting to report here. It didn’t leave my hair feeling crunchy, however, I don’t think it had as much hold either.

July Birchbox The Glitter Life

1. Number 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect: Used this de-tangler/ UV shield combined with “It’s a 10 Plus Keratin,” and my hair feels like silk. The smell alone is glorious. I think I’ll toss this in my pool bag for post-swim hair.

2. DDF® Acne Control Treatment: I love a good spot treatment I can keep in my purse for emergencies (you know it happens…). This will replace my Murad – the smell is WAY more tolerable.

3. theBalm® cosmetics InStain® Long-Wearing Powder Staining Blush: A little dab will do you, but this cheek stain is really pretty!

4. Benefit it’s potent! eye cream: This eye cream has been sitting in my shopping cart for a month, but I didn’t want to pull the trigger before trying it. You can imagine how THRILLED I was to find a mini in my Birchbox. Y’all. This stuff works. You can see and feel the results. Totally purchasing the full-size ASAP.

5. Birchbox Bobby Pins: Adorable. 100%. A little thicker than my usual hair pins, but way more fun.
