Get ready for the Summer time with Walgreens Beauty! Today I am showing you how to get my everyday Summer makeup look using some of the new products found at Walgreens stores. I'm all about bronzed, glowy skin with a pop of color on the lips right now. This sun-kissed makeup tutorial is perfect during the Summer.

Sassy Secrets.

I recently discovered a website called Sassy Secret. Sassy Secret offers synthetic wigs, human hair wigs, and hair extensions. Be sure to visit the Sassy Secret website for more information. Most units ship out within 1 business days, which is really awesome! I wanted to share some info about the unit I have from their website.

The style that I am wearing is the Korina.
Retail Price: $275.00

Product Code: 5076
Hair Color: T1B/30
Hair Texture: Yaki Straight
Hair Length: 18 Inches
Lace Color: Medium Brown
Cap Size: Medium

- Easy application
- Easy to style and curl
- Features a beautiful ombre
- Hair texture is full and thick
- Have not experience major hair shedding

- I prefer to have a Light Brown lace
- The cap is slightly too big for my head

MY OVERALL THOUGHTS: I am currently still loving the ombre hair look. It's such a great trend for the Spring and Summer time. This unit has an amazing ombre and also features a side bang. I normally don't get bangs, but I wanted to try something different. I did have to trim the side bangs a little to frame my face a bit more though. The hair texture is thick and full. I have not experience any shedding or matting with this unit.

My only main complaints are that I could not choose the Lace Color or the Cap Size. I usually pick a Light Brown lace color because it's better suited for my skin tone. I normally don't have an issue with the cap size, but I do find the cap size to be a tad bit bigger than I'm used to. Thankfully the adjustable straps and combs help with that issue.

Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream.

BB goes body! BB Creams have been a huge craze lately and Jergens Skincare has introduced the new Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream. I have used a couple of BB Creams for my face, so I was really excited to try out a BB Cream specifically designed to use for my body.

This body cream retails for about $10-$12. It is available in two shades: Light and Medium-Deep skin tones. The claims for this BB Cream is that you will have 5 visible benefits in 5 days.

Get 5 Benefits In 5 Days: Hydrates, illuminates, evens, firms, and corrects.

Be sure to watch the video for a quick summary of the product!

Formula: The formula is a sheer, lightweight formula. It appears to have a slight tint to it. The BB Body Cream for Medium to Deep skin tones has reflecting particles in it.

Texture: This is a very lightweight texture. It's not thick or heavy at all. It rubs into your skin easily and dries pretty fast.

Scent: I do notice a faint scent to the BB Body Cream. It smells like shea butter. I personally prefer my body creams and lotions to have a scent.

My Overall Thoughts: Winter can be pretty harsh to my skin, so I was curious about how this would actually work. I am not a huge fan of the price. I think paying over $10 for a body cream or body lotion is a bit pricey. It does however come with 7.5 fl oz worth of product though.

I really like the formula and texture of this lotion. It's lightweight and doesn't leave a sticky or greasy feeling to the skin. It is very hydrating! My skin feels super soft and smooth immediately after applying it. This body cream dries fast too, which means I don't have to worry about it transferring to my clothes.

After applying I noticed that my skin appears brighter and has an illumination to it. It gives a really nice natural sheen to my skin. My skin does feel a bit more firmer, but I also don't really have a huge issue with a lack of firmity with my skin. I have not noticed much of a change with the imperfections in my skin. I also wished it did contain SPF in the product.

I do recommend the Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream if you are interested in a body cream that is going to provide your skin with more hydration. I think it's a good product to use during the Spring and Summer time because it does give your skin a subtle sheen. It's easy to apply and I like the results I did notice with my skin!
