In today’s episode of the podcast, Becca and I go through our summer beauty routines. All the products we’re using and loving right now… changes we’ve made to our beauty routines, and so much more. I wanted to recap all of the products we talked about here though!

The Best New Beauty Products We’ve Tried This Summer.


SPF + Self Tanning

Skincare Updates?


  • Have been breaking out more than usual; got a facial at Christine Chin Spa – I see Coco!
  • Sometimes I find I need a lighter moisturizer in this heat. I like Sisleyouth a lot as it sinks in immediately.
  • TONER is essential. Acwell is my favorite.
  • Face mists on my person at all times – the small size of the Caudalie beauty elixir is everything!


  • She swears by Weleda Skin Food on heels. (I use this on my face and am going to have to try it!!)




  • Summer hair routine: straighten my hair, ponytail, big earrings



  • Bare nails; or Essie Mademoiselle
  • Other colors I am medium on: Essie Geranium, Clambake, or Fiji!


  • Very into light purple; otherwise shell pink or neutral.

Verrry Minimal Summer Makeup Routines!



  • Way more minimal. Wonderglow Primer and concealer. Then blush. Brows, Mascara, maybe a fun sheer lip. Very into anything that makes you look like you just had a popsicle.
  • Like the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina palette… the gold and rose gold are great to brush on with fingers!

  2. Amazing suggestions, I’ve wanted a light purple/lavender nail polish for months now and I haven’t been able to find one yet, good to see I’m not the only one loving that colour haha since I only use cruelty-free cosmetics, it’s been proving a bit hard to find one but I’ll keep looking

    Loved the podcast this morning, especially all of these new beauty updates. Also, I appreciate you sharing your dating story to confirm to us fellow NYC gals that dating here is the WORST! I thought as I got older (35 now) that it would get easier, but ugh, it’s so bad out there. I also totally agree with you — I’m not asking a guy up until a couple of dates in.

    • Oh good I’m so glad!!!! It’s so funny, dating really is so strange (I try to stay positive and not say it’s the worst), but the trouble seems to be that everyone either wants to settle down ASAP and have kids SOON, or have a one night stand. There isn’t really anything in the middle, which is what I’m looking for!

    I just bought my tickets for your San Francisco show! I love Essie Clam bake, I can’t find it. I thought they stopped making it. Geranium is always good and Mademoiselle is a classic! I’m loving the Beauty pie Japanfusion toner, if you haven’t tried it. Moisturizing !

    Love the recs, Grace & Becca! I’m trying the Caudalie Beauty Elixir, the banana eye cream, the Acwell toner & the Isle of Paradise tanning drops. I’m going to give the Dr. Bader cream a try once winter rolls around. I love the pod and the blog – keep up the great work!

    Fun episode today! Please share the Dyson fan you mentioned. We have a/c but it’s just not enough for the summer temps we’ve had lately and I love the idea of air purification as well!

    Why I have I never put Skin Food on my heels? Genius!

    I am so interested to try BeautyPie but I think I have to wait until the huge Sephora order I put in arrives. You’ve had so many great recs this summer – thank you!

    Will you give me the low down on the Beautypie membership? I think I am in need of this hand cream but wondering what your take is on joining Beautypie. Thanks!!

    Speaking of Sunscreen I follow @just.ingredients on Instagram. She does some awesome research an all kinds of products. Based on her post I was in need of a great sunscreen for my 2 little guys and have started using Aveeno Baby continuous protection SPF 50 on them and me. It has awesome coverage and does not leave me white. I find that lots of the baby sunscreens have much cleaner ingredients than the adult and are great to use.

    • That’s so interesting, thank you!!!
      I am intrigued; I looked at it and it doesn’t have any of the bad stuff in it! Great find.

      I often reach for the babies/kids sunscreens, they are so much cleaner than the adult versions. You are so right! leave to a mom 🙂
