Peter Thomas Roth Max Mineral Naked SPF 45 Protective Lotion

The second of  the two new Peter Thomas Roth  face products I've been trying is 
Max Mineral Naked SPF 45 Protective Lotion.

The  name gives you a clue , it's a lightweight mineral based sunscreen for the face. This has sheer ,light , non white , coverage that does perfect a little  with high protection  physical SPF of 45 making it a great base layer under makeup  or used on it's own. It adds light  moisture.  Enough for my normal to oily skin in this heat.  If you are drier you'll want a serum or cream underneath.

The lotion has a barely there tint that blends quickly in. For me it's not enough to wear alone as I like a good bit of coverage but it's worked really well under my foundation.  If you're more into a no makeup look or a tinted base , it does that too.  This is one of those  really works, easy to use , daily  products to add to your Summer routine.

Ingredients include Vitamins A, C and E , Safflower seed oil  with 1.93 % titanium dioxide and 19.24 % zinc oxide for sun protection.

Peter Thomas Roth Max Mineral Naked SPF 45 Protective Lotion is $ 38 for 1.7 oz tube at Peter Thomas Roth, Sephora , Macys and Ulta.

Gucci High Shine Lipstick

If you like your lipstick to be vibrant, full coverage and elegant in the old school way, then  check out Gucci's High Shine Lipstick.

This reminds of old fashioned lipstick with it's coverage and look but it's modern and ready to wear.

The pigment is full, rich and bold with a sheen that is slightly glossy.  It covers well in one swipe and feels very comfortable on lips. It's creamy but light , feels moisturizing and butter smooth.

The packaging is a slim wand case with the Gucci logo on the cap and in gold around the lipstick bullet . You twist from the bottom to turn up the color.

I have four of the eight shades  available shown in order- Ginger Rose, Heartbreaker, Temptation and Blossom.

Gucci High Shine Lipstick is $ 40 at Saks ( all shades don't look to be available right now ) and at

Dove Anti -Stress Micellar Water Body Wash & Body Soap

Micellar water has been the word in facial cleansers for awhile . Now Dove is the first brand to bring it to bodycare in the US  with their new Anti- Stress Micellar line. 

Dove makes some of the best creamy cleansers and I am a big fan.  With the Micellar line , the cleanser is a gel this time , not a cream. It's still plenty moisturizing as we would expect from Dove and it has their Nutrium Moisture . The formula has a thick consistency , is very gentle on skin and washes clean.

There is a fairly strong fragrance here of a floral blend, chamomile and sandalwood. The scent doesn't seem to linger long after using though  , it's stronger out of the bottle or bar. 

Both the body wash and soap are sulfate free. 

Dove Anti -Stress Micellar Water Body Wash is sugg. retail $5.97 
Dove Anti -Stress Micellar Water Bar Soap is sugg. retail $ 3.49 per twin pack
