beauty review: you glo girl

In the summer especially we should all be applying sunscreen.

Included in the summer box of style was a full-size bottle of glo skin beauty’s lightweight, hydrating SPF 40 face lotion. What I really like about it is exactly what it boasts…light, moisturizing and broad-spectrum protection.  What more do you need? You can wear it alone as a moisturizer, not necessarily over your moisturizer, which means one less step. 

Each season the box includes one skin-care and one makeup product that’s outstanding. You get to try something different with products that actually work.  I love that.

Here’s what I also found out taken from their website:

Glo Skin Beauty vows never to test products on animals, allow others to test on animals on their behalf, use raw ingredients tested on animals or enter into business markets like China that require animal testing by joining *PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies Program and becoming a PETA approved brand.

China requires international brands that sell cosmetics in their market to test products on animals, regardless of where the cosmetics were manufactured. Cosmetics manufactured in China sold in the United States are not subject to the same requirements. In the United States, these types of tests are not required by law.

*as opposed to “People for Eating Tasty Animals” – Mary Steenburgen’s line in the movie comedy “Did You Hear About the Morgans?”  Sorry but I couldn’t resist.

Summer box of style

What’s INside the Summer box?

Effortless Essentials to go with Everything. For starters Danielle Nicole’s macrame handbag and Machete’s lucite hoop earrings (you can choose either plain or tortoise).  The earrings are understated and timeless.  They can be worn with everything from a bathing suit to a business suit.

A macrame handbag is not something I would have considered until I saw this one.   Macrame usually reminds me of  1970’s bohemian plant holders and wall hangings.  Now, macramé is back, making waves again as creative crafters come up with contemporary patterns that have revitalized the historic knotting techniques. This modern version can be worn across the body or hand held.  I’m wearing it a lot.

And I’m very picky about beach towels.  So when I found out that Missoni Home (the famous Italian fashion house) was including a colorful striped terry towel as part of the package I was excited. Missoni goes with everything.  I will definitely be using this chic towel even if I only drape it over a chaise lounge à la Rachel Zoe.

Included in this box are two special beauty products which I’ll blog about separately because they deserve their own post.
