Buy This Now: beautyblender Sponge

Do you own a beautyblender sponge? If you don’t, you need to pick one up ASAP! It’s my favorite beauty tool, dare I say ever? It blends my tinted moisturizer perfectly and it gives my skin a flawless finish. Unlike your typical triangle sponges, this elliptical shaped sponge allows me to access hard to reach areas with ease. The sponge has suede like texture and it’s non-allergenic, latex and odor free.

In order to keep my skin fresh and healthy, I clean my beautyblender often using their blendercleanser. The cleanser is soy-based so it’s not only eco-friendly but it makes for a great facial moisturizer plus you can also use it to
clean other makeup brushes!

Time to clean my beautyblender!

Need: Tom Ford Eau Fraiche

I’ve been searching for the perfect Tom Ford perfume and I think I finally found it. Neroli Portofino Eau Fraiche (body splash) is a lighter version of the original best selling Neroli Portofino scent.
Inspired by cool breezes, sparkling clear water and the lush foliage of the Italian Riviera, this scent features an uplifting blend of crisp citrus oils, floral notes and amber undertones. Perfect for the upcoming months ahead, I think I’ve just found the perfect spring/summer scent.
