You know those brushes that you never give a second thought to? You know, the ones that you use all the time to the point that you just grab them out of habit? They’re the brushes that get the most love, but the least praise. Well, I literally use these five brushes everyday (that I’m wearing makeup at least!). Since they get so much love from me, I thought I should give them a little attention and share them with you!

This last week seemed to be the week of running out of everything. That actually doesn’t happen to me very often, but I ran out of daytime and evening moisturizer, as well as my go-to lip balm. So frustrating! I had been planning to order everything from Vitacost where you can find many of the beauty products I use at reduced prices, but once that last drop of Sibu Beauty’s Sea Buckthorn Oil disappeared, I had to make an emergency dash to Whole Foods. Since I’ve managed to use up an entire bottle, and I don’t think I’ve ever really mentioned it here, I figure it’s about time for a review! J

I have been working on this post for an embarrassingly long time. I’m just so indecisive that I can’t make up my mind and stick with it! J I’m finally happy with my choices and, given that it’s mid-July, it’s way past time to share my favorite Summer Nail Polishes with you! Obviously everyone has different taste when it comes to nail colors, but these are the types of shades I reach for when the temperatures rise and the sun shines well into the evening. I’ve tried not to repeat shades that I chose for last year’s Summer Polish picks (check those out here ‘cause they are all still spectacular shades from Summertime)! I’ve narrowed it down to a cool dozen, so prepare for some serious nail candy that I hope you enjoy!!! J

As promised, today I’m bringing you a review of the Hang Ten Mineral Sunscreen, the Hang Ten Classic Sport Sunscreen, and the Classic Sport Sunscreen Spray. If you’d like to learn a bit more about how these different formulas work, check out my last post (you can find that here – it’s kind of interesting to my nerd brain, so check it out!). Since you’re here for the actual review portion, just keep reading to see my thoughts on the different formulas!

Hang Ten from Coola Sunscreens - Mineral vs Classic Sport vs Classic Spray - Differences? - Part 1 of 2
Recently I raved about the Hang Ten Classic Sunscreen (see the post here). Since I only had a sample, I knew I needed to place an order pronto. I decided to give all three of their formulations a try while I was at it. So, this post will include the Hang Ten Classic Sport Sunscreen SPF 50, the Hang Ten Mineral Sport Sunscreen SPF 50, and the Hang Ten Classic Sport Spray Sunscreen SPF 50. Yup. I tested them all so that I could share the finding with you…and satisfy my own curiosity! J

I know it’s a bit late for my June Ipsy bag, but I did receive it rather late. That’s an excuse, right? (Notice I didn’t say a good one.) J Anyway, enough time wasting, let’s get on to the bag!
I’ll start with the bag itself. It looks like they teamed up with Rebecca Minkoff this month and I guess she designed the bag. I know, I’m lame, but if it weren’t for YouTube videos of people showing the contents of their Rebecca Minkoff bags, I would have no idea who she is! J I’m not gonna lie either – I think this bag is rather ugly. It’s a navy background with a weird pineapple and palm tree print. It doesn’t look at all summery to me and it’s just rather ugly. But, I never judge Ipsy by the bag design so hopefully the contents are more to my liking! J
