Monthly Beauty Buys

My favorite beauty products from this past month are well-rounded, with something for your face, skin and hair. Here are the three items I'm loving right now.


The Gnarly Whale Beach Waves Hair Spray. Even though we live relatively near the ocean, I can't remember the last time I dunked my head under water so I could emerge with tousled, textured hair. In order to replicate that vibe though, I'm always on the lookout for great beach sprays and this one is one of the best I've come across. It's really affordable, so you can spray it on liberally, and the thai coconut scent smells like summer. It leaves my hair messy without the accompanying crunchiness that often plagues beach sprays.


Chantecaille Liquid Lumière Anti-Aging Illuminator in 'Sheen'. I mix my highlighting creams with pretty much everything (from my tinted moisturizer to my body oils), so I go through them quickly. I've tried dozens of formulas, but this one differentiates itself since it's not as watery and really adheres to your skin while also boosting collagen over time. The rose gold color also blends in nicely when layered over blush.


Tata Harper Revitalizing Body Oil. I first tried this body oil at Olive & June when I applied some on my way out of the salon. For the rest of the day, I kept running my hands over my arms, blown away at how soft my skin was. I've since added several Tata Harper products to my arsenal, but this one is still my favorite. It smells like a spa you'd visit in Tuscany and is made of all-natural ingredients that reduce puffiness and penetrate skin immediately.
