5 Things I am Loving Right Now - Spring/Summer 2021

Time for another 5 Things I am Loving Right Now. This time I am summing up everything I loved this past spring and summer. I will say I wore next to no makeup this summer and a lot of what I loved last spring and summer I am still loving this year, so check out last years post.

Ouai Detox Shampoo 300 ml / $39.00

I got this in my Summer 2021 FabFitFun box with a matching scalp massager. I started using it right after my condo's pool opened. I found it easy to lather and rinse, but most of all my hair and scalp always felt great after using it. I think it did a great job of keeping the chlorine from building up in my hair over the season.

It has Apple Cider Vinegar to help with buildup and keratin to help strengthen hair, it makes for a great clarifying shampoo.

Grown Alchemist Gentle Gel Facial Cleanser 200 ml / $52.00

I got this from Influenster in the early summer and decided to put it in my shower, I started using it every day after my swims. I usually hate gel cleansers because they end up stripping my skin of moisture, but not this one. The gentle in its name is definitely true. It cleansed my skin well, lathered and rinsed well and never left my skin feeling tight or dry. I was using it daily as I got fully into swimming this summer, and it really impressed me the more I used it. I actually really think having a pump made it a great option for having in the shower too, less mess and water couldn't get inside it.

Dr Teal's Melatonin Sleep SoakPure Epsom Salt, 1.36 kg / $9.99
I reviewed this and its matching bubble bath, I love them both. My legs started bothering me mid way through the summer, having a good epsom salt soak goes a long way to making them feel better. This salt also has the added relaxation of melatonin and lavender in it. I have probably been using it about 3-4 times a week.

Mac Paint pots have always been favourites of mine, but over the years Mac has lost a little of its glitter and glam for me (most likely when they made renewing my pro card impossible and started pumping endless terrible collections), that being said when Mac released some new shades I actually went and picked a bunch up.  I got all matte shades, something I always found a bit hard to find previously at Mac.

I love these in the warmer weather because they are so easy to just apply and go, now powders to mess with, just use your finger or a brush and go. The matte ones work even better because there is no glitter fall out as I sweat the hot days away.  They also make a great shadow primer, but I mainly wore them as an actual shadow this summer.

When it comes to lips, no one is really seeing mine these days, but I do like a little something on them. Dior Addict Lip Glow is a balm that adds a slight tint to the lips. I started wearing it daily because I figured there was no point in me having something so nice that I wasn't using, and it turns out I really do love it.
