In May, we celebrate mothers, so this month’s must-haves are a mix of long-loved and just-discovered multipurpose marvels that make life easier for busy moms (like me) on the go.
Clarisonic ‘Opal – Ruby’ Sonic Infusion System: Amazing. After just one use, my eyes looked less puffy and felt more hydrated; within one week, they looked smoother, more refreshed and less crepey—all day! Even better, this wondergadget is quick (just 30 seconds on each eye) and very simple to use. Pair it with your favorite eye cream and/or serum and use it day and night for maximum results.
Chantecaille Ultra Sun Protection Sunscreen Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 50: I hit the jackpot with this product! Not only does it protect my skin with a broad spectrum SPF; it’s also a fantastic makeup primer. It creates the perfect non-greasy, smooth, even canvas for your foundation, with bonus anti-aging benefits built in. Brilliant.
Giorgio Armani ‘Luminous Silk’ Foundation: There’s a reason this product achieved immediate cult status and wins practically every beauty award. Just one pump is all you need for silky, smooth, weightless coverage that lasts all day. I am honestly blown away by how flawless and radiant it makes my face look, plus it’s oil-free—the perfect finish for my combination skin.
Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Color: I’m addicted to these new easy-to-wear lip shades that offer just the right wash of sheer color. Of the 14—yes, 14!—shades I’ve already acquired, my current #1 favorite is Passion Fruit, my power pink for summer. (Bonus: these beauties condition lips, too!)
L’Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil: I first tried this product because I couldn’t resist the delicious almond scent; now I can’t live without the way it makes my skin look. I spray it on right after my shower to lock in moisture and face the day with supple, radiant, glowing skin that smells like a dream.
