Summer Skincare Faves

Hi there! 

I hope everyone has enjoyed their summer and to me it’s not over yet! These are some of my current skincare obsessions thanks to the Goop store in Sag Harbor, NY. I just got back from the Hamptons and that pop up store gave me a chance to get some truly wonderful products! 

First off is my never fails fave: Moroccan oil Argan oil for hair. I love putting this into beach hair to add moisture and contain frizz. My hair is so healthy and happy from using the Moroccan Oil shampoo conditioner and styling cream too!  

Now for my Goop finds: French Girl rose lip scrub is great for getting rid of dead skin on your lips and leaving them plump and smooth. Finish it off with rose balm for an extra hidrated pout!  It smells so good too:)

I love the way the Tata Harper lip and cheek balm feel, and her products are all natural and organic! In the sun this balm and sunscreen are all you need and I love the colors it comes in. 

Finally this lapis face oil/serum by Herbivore is to die for if you have combination skin like me. It leaves skin hydrated and balanced and not excessively oily. 

Let’s carry out that summer glow into fall with healthy skin and hair!

Hi there!

For those of you who watch my stories you might have seen my unwrapping video some months ago when I received my shipment of Virginia Stone skincare goodies. Her eye collection is incredible, and I am now an ambassador for her line and I couldn’t wait to share this brand I’ve recently began to work with.

Virginia and I met during fashion week last year and she is an amazing human being, above all. She is beautiful inside and out, and her products show this radiance. Her products are natural and sustainable and her packaging is divine and sustainable as well! The stone keeps the product from being at the wrong temperature, and it’s magnetic in the way it closes. All her products are so natural you can eat them, literally. They smell good and feel great on the skin. They are designed based on skin tone because her philosophy (and this is proven) is that different skin pigments respond to different products. I’m using the light one and in the summer I’ll switch to the next one up for skin tone. 

Above I included a selfie I took where I’m wearing minimal makeup and have natural hair to celebrate my using this great product and the glowing effect it has on my skin!  When you purchase this great product on the site be sure to use my code to save 10%: “Click here for Carolina’s VS code.”

Here's my progress in just 6 weeks of using the product. These photos are unedited! Check out these modeling pics below to see how short my eyelashes were before. I tried eyelash extensions but I didn't like the maintenance or cost. This product really works!

Hi there! 

I hope you're all enjoying a cozy day in with this snowy weather! It's days like these that remind me how much I love good skincare products. My faves lately are shown above: Mario Badescu facial spray with rose water herbs and aloe, Philosophy body scrub and Rodan + Fields lash boost serum. 

Mario Badescu is my go-to European facial (and other treatments) skin spa. They are affordable and have been around forever. They are also a celebrity staple. This skin spray leaves your face moisturizer and hydrated ad gives you that little glow after applying your makeup. It smells great and boost your mood, and it's perfect to take on the plane when the dry air sucks the moisture from your skin. Your skin stays dewy and glowing with this spray! Stay tuned for a post coming soon with my favorite travel products. I of course have this in a travel size I never fly without. 

Philosophy makes fabulous products and their sayings are always fun to read on the bottle too! This snow angel body scrub leaves you clean, smelling good, and rids your skin of dry skin so you can be soft and like new after the shower. Don't forget to pair if with your favorite moisturizer or skin oil. 

I'm new to Rodan + Fields products but my friend and fellow performer Alison Solomon introduced me to the lash boost and eye cream recently and I LOVE these products! The lash boost is a serum applied with a brush to your lash line after cleansing and drying skin in the evening. You sleep with it and wash your face in the morning and the results appear quickly. My lashes grew a ton and I don't need to get eyelash extensions anymore. I never liked the maintenance or cost of them, and with this product with or without mascara, my lashes have the same long effect only they are mine and won't get damaged over time! For more products of theirs and to shop this one head to Alison Solomon's page!
