Random Finds

I thought it would be fun to start a weekly post on “random finds” to share with you. I know for myself that when I don’t have time to page through magazines, I love being able to quickly read and see a picture that will hopefully stick in my memory when the need arises.

Random finds could be anything from cosmetics to clothes.

The first random find I want to share with you is a new product I discovered at the Kiehl’s counter. You may remember me singing the praises of Kiehl’s self tanner a couple of years ago. I do love this brand even more as I continue to try different products. It’s available in most major departments stores, online, and well, we even have a Kiehl’s store in the Portland Airport now.

I tried a sunscreen that is the lightest, freshest sun care product I’ve put on my face in a long time. You can add this to your daily routine right after your moisturizer and before you put on foundation, or you can use it just on your face before hitting the beach.

Most day moisturizers and some foundations also have a fairly high SPF so you might be full protected. However, in this day and age, as we become more in the know about the damage the sun can do, sunscreen is  super important daily if you are out/about at all.

I also tried a body lotion that was wonderful. I do not like heavy lotions or ones with strong scent. This was perfect.

I typically don’t buy the largest size of something when I’m trying a new product–even if that is the better deal. I bought the 4 oz. instead of the 8 oz. Most counters will also throw in some samples of things for you to try. It’s the best way to get a taste before stepping up and spending a bundle. So here are my random finds. Let me know if you try either of these and what you think.

    I’ll have to see if I can find these nearby. I can’t do anything with scent or much scent and I need lightweight, non greasy. THANKS for sharing!

    Sounds great! I’d definitely like to try it out. I love these little tips beyond your fashion-related posts that relate to the entire self-care topic as a whole. Thanks!
