This is where I talk about some of the beauty products I've been loving lately...

Versed Day Dissolve Cleansing Balm
The SU:M37 Skin Saver Melting Cleansing Balm is my favorite cleansing balm of all time but I can't get it anymore so I've been on a quest for a replacement. This one is not quite it but it is a very good and affordable cleanser. While it contains no artificial fragrances it does have the scent of eucalyptus and clove leaf oil which is reminiscent of Tiger Balm to me. I've always kind of liked the smell of Tiger Balm so I don't mind it but I can see it being off putting to some. I like to use it on days when I'm wearing makeup as the first step of a double cleanse. It has a velvety smooth texture that works well to gently cleanse and remove makeup while leaving my skin feeling refreshed and hydrated. It also easily removes mascara even waterproof mascara. 
$17.99 (2.3 oz) at Dermstore & Target 

Peach & Lily KBeauty Rescue Balm
I love a good multi-use beauty product and this ultra moisturizing wonder salve is perfect for use on any irritated, dry or chapped areas on the body. I've used this everywhere from my lips to my heels. It's perfect for that extra boost of moisture all over my face following my laser treatments. And it also got rid of a pesky dry patch I had on my leg. I liken it to a luxe version Aquaphor with much better ingredients and prettier packaging.
$28 (1.69 oz) at Ulta Beauty

Son & Park Beauty Filter Cream Glow
This tone up cream is a primer/moisturizer hybrid loaded with vitamins C and E that imparts a radiant glow giving my face a brighter and fresher appearance. I like to use it alone on no makeup days for a little extra boost. It also creates a smooth base under makeup. I don't think it would be hydrating enough for me to use in place of moisturizer but oily skin types would probably be able to get away with it. I get the hype with this and it's definitely worth the $10 sale price I paid for it.
$32 (1.41 oz) at Soko Glam

Krave Beauty The Beet Shield
I knew this sunscreen was a winner when I used it in Hawaii. Formulated with antioxidant rich beetroot extract, allantoin, vitamin C, resveratrol, and EGCG, this product also contains a roster of advanced UV filters that are more effective while less irritating and more photostable. It has a  cosmetically elegant watery almost gel like consistency that quickly absorbs without any heaviness or white cast. It feels gently moisturizing with a satin finish and can double as a great makeup primer. My favorite feature has to be the high level of sun protection it provides. This product is the same formula as KraveBeauty Beet The Sun SPF 50+ PA++++ that's available in Korea. It is not marketed as a sunscreen in the US because the ingredients are too advanced to garner FDA approval and the US is seriously way behind in the sunscreen game. That's a major reason why I generally don't use US sunscreens 
$20 (50 mL) at Krave Beauty

Ouai Chill Pills
I treated myself to these for my birthday and these fizzy, jasmine and rose scented bath bombs have been such a delightful and luxurious addition to my weekly detox baths. They have the most divine fragrance and the blend of hemp, jojoba and safflower seed oils are relaxing and nourishing at the same time. I'm definitely getting more when I run out. 
$30 (6 x 1.5 oz) at Ulta, NetAPorter & Sephora

  1. I want to try Krave Beauty sunscreen in the near future or as soon as I finish my current stash. Shame about the cleansing lost me as soon as I saw the scent reminds you of tiger balm. I can't stand that thing. LOL!

  2. I want to try these, they look amazing!! x

  3. I have been meaning to try that Krave SPF for a while now, just need to find the best place to order it.

  4. I'm such a huge fan of the Son & Park line so I really have to try that cream now! Thanks for the heads up, chingu:) Hope you're having a lovely Monday.

  5. Unfortunately, I haven't tried any of these products but I'm curious to check these out especially that cleansing balm. I am using Clinique cleansing balm these days and love it. Cleansing balms are soothing and hydrating on dry skin people in winter. I also want to try Krave beauty sunscreen. Nice review Rowena, very helpful.
    Have a nice day.
