Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Lip Balm

Of all the newness in Chanel's Les Beiges collection for this year, I am most anxious to try the new balms.

I love a good tinted balm, well I love many beuaty items but tinted balms truly are a favorite and when they're Chanel? Even better.

I have shade Deep, which is a medium berry tone. It has a nice ampunt og pigment, and is not totally sheer but light to medium covergae. It gives a nice, quick  muted pop of color.

The moisture level is medium. This adds a nice bit of hydration but not a lot. For cold temps it might not cut it, but is for  Summer days and nights .

As with most balms, wear time isn't very long. An hour or so on me. You can layer this over / under a lipstick too.

There are three shades in all - Light, Medium and Deep available wherever Chanel is sold.

Arm & Hammer Invisible Spray Powders

The new Invisible Spray Powders from Arm & Hammer might not be the sexiest or Insta ready new launch but they are definitely worth tucking in your beach, day or gym bag.

There are two versions- one for feet and one for body.  They best part is no white residue. They go on clean and dry fast with no cast, no stickiness and a very light fragrance.  They do however, feel cool and lightly deodorize  while absorbing moisture and sweat .  All good. They use the brand's trademarked Sweat Activated Fresh Guard technology that is meant to keep you fresh all day.

These can be sprayed anytime, anywhere and with Summer's heat here , I need that. It's a great refresh midday or late afternoon and I am going to keep the body one in the tote I drag to the office each day. 

These are also perfect for your gym or beach bag.  Going from the beach, lake or pool to dinner , you can freshen up in a jiffy or cool off  hot feet from pounding the pavement. 

They are talc free, btw.

Arm &Hammer Invisible Spray Powders are sugg. retail $6.99  and are available at Walmart .

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Bronzer

 Summer and  bronzer  go together like pie and apple  and IT Cosmetics has one that will see to most of your glow getting needs.

Bye Bye Pores Bronzer adds to their well loved Bye Bye Pores line that uses the brand's  Optical Blurring Technology.  I'm good with anything that helps reduce the look of my huge pores or adds smoothness to my face. 

The new bronzer is a medium shade that should work for most skintones. It looks fine on my pale self and blends well. It's not muddy , overly dark , orange-y or loaded with shimmer. It adds a nice dose of  warm color  and also works well as contour.   Plus it smells like coconut . Yes it does- thanks to coconut extract and it's sooo good. A real mood lifter. 

The compact has a built in mirror and a small brush tucked in the bottom for all your on the go needs. 

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Bronzer  is $ 30 at It Cosmetics, QVC and Ulta.

Bliss Lemon and Sage Refreshing Body Wipes

Bliss Lemon and Sage fragrance is such a good one and now you can get it in these on the go body wipes.

 Like me, many of you I'm sure have used the hand cream , lotion and  Soapy Suds body wash with it's zippy green and citrus scent.  It's an instant perk up.  New deodorizing Body Wipes give you a quick clean and fragrant refresh  anywhere.  The gym, when you have after work drinks with friends or an evening Doctor's appointment. 

The wipes are  baby soft,  moist (  but I like to add a little water  to get them really wet ) cooling and smell fantastic. Not strong and the scent dissipates quickly. You'll smell freshened up not like a lemon .  They don't leave behind any sticky feeling either.  They are formulated with aloe vera , plant based deodorizers and vitamin e to be gentle to skin. 

Summer staple right here. 

Bliss Lemon and Sage Refreshing Body Wipes are $10 for a pack of 30 and will be available at Target , Ulta and
