My Favorite Beauty Products, Summer 2016

My Favorite Beauty Products, Summer 2016 | Stile.Foto.Cibo

As with most people, what I’m using on my body varies from season to season. While I opt for exclusively heavy-moisture products in the winter and pumpkin spice scented everything in the fall, summer is when I spend some time experimenting with my favorites. It’s the perfect time to see what my skin and I both like, have a little fun, and see what’s new on the market!

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Boosters Facial Cleanser, White Tea and Vitamin E

With dry skin all year round, I need a face cleanser that specifically states it won’t over-dry. If it isn’t oil free, all the better. This cleanser has been a lifesaver and I’ve definitely noticed a new brightness in my skin. It smells AMAZING and feels great to boot. I don’t think it will be my winter cleanser and it still occasionally leaves my skin feeling a little tight in places but it’s awesome for these hot summer days. So refreshing.

Lush Yuzu and Cocoa Shower Cream

I got this as a sample at Lush in the Park in early May. I watched them make it and immediately fell in love with the straight up fresh ingredients. They just squeezed mandarins right into the mix to give it that amazing scent and freshness! And in-shower it’s so great. The cocoa butter gives it this silky quality that makes it feel way more luxurious than it actually is. And with continued use, I’ve noticed a huge difference on overall softness. Those nasty scaly bits that formed from winter? They’re gone! And it leaves the whole darn shower smelling so great for hours after.

Ouidad Botanical Boost

I adore this spray. It’s super great for my hair regardless of if I’m blowing it our or letting my curls run wild. It gives my hair that little extra oomph it needs to not go all over the place in Chicago’s darn-near-famous humidity and keeps me feeling fresh and REfreshed every single time I use it. So great!

MyBurberry Eau de Toilette

I posted about getting this amazing scent but I haven’t updated you guys since. It’s been so so excellent. I love the fresh and citrus notes to it and just how perfect it is for warm weather. I’ve been spraying it everywhere, too. My outfit for the day, my hair, and every single pulse point. I’m so obsessed with this scent I would bathe in it if I could. I didn’t think it was possible to love a scent so much but here we are. [swoon]

essie figi nail polish

If high school me could look at current me, she would be disappointed. And it wouldn’t be for career or life or love reasons. It would simply be for the sheer amount of pink in my life. Confessions, I was my high school’s token goth kid, Tripp brand pants and all. Black was my dominant color along with red, line green, and orange. And yet here I am, so many years later, running a freaking style blog and telling you all how much I absolutely adore this soft pink nail polish. But for real, this color is amazing. And you all know how great of a brand essie is. They’re the bomb!

Jergen’s Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer

I feel like every blogger ever has used this lotion. It’s such a beauty staple but that doesn’t change how much I absolutely adore it. I love the light color it gives and, honestly, I love the scent of it. The only thing I’m not a fan of is how long it can sometimes take to dry. Orange tinted sheets are not cute, guys. But such is life. Just means I won’t be snapchatting (@dannie54) in my bedroom until laundry day. Seriously, this is perfect to build that light glow, especially until I can spend a few days of dedicated bum time at the beach.

My beauty regime isn’t that at all. I don’t spend hours in front of a mirror primping. I usually wake up most mornings, half-assedly throw on some mascara, and book it out the door. If I’m being completely honest, I forget to wash my face before bed more often than I remember. And I do my nails with alarming infrequency. But when I do take the time to spend some time, this is what I’m reaching for. All the time, every time.

What are your favorite products? Give me the deets in the comments and I just might feature them next time!

  1. Hi Dannie, it’s Gennifer over at! I am right there with you on the dry skin. I have super sensitive and dry skin so I have to be very careful about what I use. I am always on the hunt for super thick moisturizers with high quality ingredients. I LOVE Burberry too! I have using Romance forever but I love some of their new scents too. And yes, pumpkin spice is everything in the fall! πŸ™‚

    • Ugh dry skin is the worst! It’s like fresh snowfall on my forehead from October through May. I’ll be doing a post on moisturizers come winter so definitely keep an eye out for that (though you have a while).

      Burberry is the. actual. best. I’m obsessing over them so hard right now.

      Thanks for stopping by!


  2. I love Essie’s Fiji!! I’m wearing it right now, in fact! My friend introduced it to me a few years ago and I’ve been obsessed ever since. I’m also such a fan of Neutrogena products. They always feel so amazing!
