Skin Care Junkie | Self Tan Luxe Facial Oil

In my last Skin Care Junkie post I shared my Daily Beauty Routine. In the pictures you may have seen this golden product, but I thought it deserved it’s own post. Enter – The St. Tropez Self Tan Luxe Facial OilThis product is genuinely amazing, and swiftly became of my favorites.

Application:

When I stumbled on the St. Tropez Self Tan Luxe Facial oil, I was looking for a quick alternative to a self tanning mousse that takes an hour, or more, to develop. With this facial oil, all you do is add a few drops to your skin on top of your moisturizer and voila! Instant healthy, bronzed glow.

Immediate Results:

The first time I used this I was amazed by the results. It was practically instantaneous and immediately gave me a healthy, fresh face. Sometimes tanners can be drying, even giving your skin the appearance of streaks or peeling skin. But this facial oil brings out the best in your skin, leaving a hydrated, glowing face.

Thoughts:

There isn’t a heavy smell like with a standard tanning product, the oil visibly hydrates the skin, and there’s no risk of putting on too much. If you think you added too much color, just wash your face and start over.

This facial oil falls somewhere between skin care and make-up, and is going to be a staple for me going forward. It

Looks of the Week

This week has gotten off to a unusual start – And since I was so excited to share the Styling 101 – American Girl post, I suppose I’ll just have to make it Looks of the Week Wednesday instead of Monday. But regardless of the which day of the week it is, this is always the perfect way to inspire a week of creativity, fun, and great fashion.

Enjoy!

While this sweet vintage dress is a great find, I have to say that I especially love how this look was styled – Those studded booties, shopper tote, and hat are great choices to make this look one-of-a-kind.

Could this possibly be a great combination of pieces? The retro-silhouetted floral Summer dress is fabulous, those gingham heels are KILLER, and I love the trench and handbag. Well well done!

Wow. Just – WOW. I love that red & white polka dot blouse paired with the fabulous gold accessories and basic cuffed jeans. That spiked necklace is killer!

I love a good black & white look and this one is anything but boring. The skirt is fabulous and one-of-a-kind, and I adore those pointed toed ankle strap pumps. Too cute.

 

As you’ve probably picked up, I have a great many opinions about a great many things. Many of them things I have no right to have an opinion about whatsoever. Like mens pants. But as far as I’m concerned, these rolled khakis are the perfect pant for Summer. Khakis in lieu of slacks make my eye twitch, but this whole look is fabulous – Love the woven shoes, love the bag, love the simple, clean jewelry choices.

If you said ‘animal print shorts’ I might cringe but these shots are great. It’s a fun, retro look with great detailing and a relaxed overall vibe. Well done!

I love the basics that make up this look, and I love the details. The gold-tipped collar, subtle print on the pants & top, and the color scheme are all great and suit her to a T.

We all know how much I love skulls, so you can imagine that this look immediately caught my attention. But I also love the warm tones mixed with the black, studded, rock n’ roll pieces. Parfait!

I adore a good layering look, especially since we’re heading into Fall and I live in a city known for its temperamental weather. This look has the added bonus of having a killer combination of colors and prints. The flowy white knee-length skirt is the perfect background for the green striped t, leopard print blazer, and adore pink heels.

Love this look as much as I do? Well now you can shop these pieces and put together a similar look for yourself as Summer transitions into Fall and you need to start layering your looks.

What’s your favorite look of those above? Are you ready to give up your Summer duds for some layering and fabulous outerwear for Fall 2012 and Winter 2013? I have to admit, I’m really starting to get into the mood for cooler weather!
