Personal Care: Goodbye Hot Girl Summer, Hello Fall Freshness

Hot Girl Summer may be coming to an end but the high humidity can still make things uncomfortable. We’ll soon be enjoying the cooler days of fall, but we’re not quite safe from chafing or not-so-fresh days. There are still plenty of days to rock your cutest short skirts and shorts, but anyone with ample thighs knows that can lead to chafing. The warm moisture of humidity can stay on our skin longer. This leaves us feeling even hotter, and those last few hot girl summer days quite unbearable since your body has a harder time cooling off. Thankfully there are wonderful products from the biggest feminine personal care brands to help you survive the last few days of hot girl summer, and ease you into the comfortably cool freshness of fall.

Spotlight on What’s New in Beauty: BeautyPress Spotlight Day

The beauty industry is always evolving, so there’s always new products hitting the market. New beauty product launches are necessary as our needs change and evolve for skincare, makeup, and personal care products. We got reacquainted with BeautyPress, a digital communication tool that connects international and local beauty brands with media, for their BeautyPress Spotlight Day. At this most recent Spotlight Day product showcase, we got a chance to preview several beauty products from Mirai Clinical, BCL Naturals, Note Beauty, Parodi Professional Care, PrivateRX, and Summer’s Eve.

The philosophy behind Mirai Clinical is less is more. They believe in a simplified approach to skincare where the fewer products you use, the healthier your skin. The wonderful products we were introduced to include the Purifying & Hydrating Face Wash, a sulfate-free cleanser that cleanses, moisturizes and softens your skin without stripping it of its natural protective oils; the Instantly Purifying & Cooling Spritzer, a light, grapefruit-scented spray which helps keep you dry and provides superior deodorant protection whenever and wherever you need it; the Moisture Lock-in Facial Cotton sheets, a quick and effective way of boosting your skin’s moisture for glowing skin that adjusts to any face shape and is super easy to carry; and the Deodorizing Hair Brush Liner, a deodorizing liner made with natural persimmon extract which acts as a dry shampoo, prevents static, absorbs dirt, sprays, and gels without harmful aerosols.

This three-year-old cosmetics brand is getting plenty of attention and it certainly did get ours at the BeautyPress Spotlight Day, where they introduced their two newest products, Sunglow Foundation, a lustrous liquid glow and highlighter designed to achieve a natural, dewy, radiant complexion; and the Ultra Rich Color Lipstick, a light, ultra-creamy lipstick with a unique combination of argan oil and cocoa butter that protects, moisturizes and reduces fine lines around the lip contour area. All NOTE Cosmetics Ultra Rich Color Lipstick shades are available nationwide and online at www.NoteCosmetics.com; a select assortment of Ultra Rich Lipstick shades will be available on www.Forever21.com, and www.Ulta.com.
