Prescriptives’ launched Exhilarating this summer, and I gotta tell you, that green packaging caught my eye. I’d say it’s one of my favorite packagings I’ve seen for the summer thus far. I know some of you find it tacky, but I love it. It’s so bright, vibrant, and SO summer. The Guava Exhilarating Lip Gloss ($14.50) smells like slightly sweet fruit and has this gold and springy green shimmer. It reminds me a bit of MAC’s Springbean lipglass, but this doesn’t feel nearly as sticky, though it is quite thick. I also tried Nectarine Exhilarating Lipcolor ($17.50), which is a semi-sheer coral shade. It doesn’t lean pink, nor too orange, so I actually found myself liking it quite a bit. If you know me, you KNOW I’m all over a good coral lipstick/lipgloss! Definitely a perfect color for summer.

With the weather starting to feel like summer, I’ve been on the hunt for products to keep me moisturized and protected from the sun from head to toe. As to not to exclude hair, I tried out Davines’ SU Sun Care line, which is a range of hair care products to help combat sun and summer fun consequences. I’ve been using the Moisturizing Replenishing After Sun Shampoo ($19.50) for the past month and a half, and I’m loving how soft my hair is.
It has a very earthy/herbal-y kind of scent, but it doesn’t turn me off. I think I am holding neutral on the scent, which is fine, because it doesn’t linger beyond washing my hair. My only concern with this product is the packaging, because I found that it was really easy to get more than you wanted. The way I fixed this was just being conscious of it.
Otherwise, it’s been doing a fab job of keeping my hair looking healthy and feeling silky. When we get deeper into summer, I’m definitely giving the Nourishing Replenishing Mask a try!
Do you consider lipliner essential? Why/why not?
Not essential, but I see its usefulness! I’d just say I’m usually too lazy to bother with it. I am better about lip liner with really bold colors, though.
