My routine does not change much during summer, fall or winter that is only because Miami is year-round hot and humid. But I do change a few things here and there, for example in summer I use a talc-free finishing veil for my t-zone area to avoid oil and shine. I am also a person of habit and when I find a product that works wonders on my skin I don't change it. A few months back I decided to see what the BB cream craze was about so I took myself to Sephora and took me about an hour to decide which one I was going to try. I tried  Dr. Brandt Flexitone BB cream before I fell head over heels for the one I have been using for a few months now and that is my Too Faced BB cream, it has improved my skin so much and I love the chic luminous effect that it gives me. If I want extra glow to my face I apply a bit of the Charlotte Ronson A Summer's Kiss, it is just the right amount of glow to the face and body. For my lips, I am loving the Revlon lip balm stains because they are the easiest things to apply and they hydrate my lips so well, but for a little nostalgic feel I use my roll-on lip gloss that a good friend of mine brought all the way from Hawaii, brought back so many childhood memories. For my eyes, I use the best mascara that I have found as of yet, the L'Oreal Telescopic, it really extends my lashes like no other, you must try it. I also use just a bit of the Benefits mascara for extra thickness when I want my lashes really black. As you can see, I am not very high-maintenance when it comes to my beauty routine, I do want to step it up a bit on the skincare department. 

I have a special treat for you all, Jergen's has been so gracious to give five lucky readers a Jergen's Crema. Yes five of you will win one of the three different scents from the Crema collection. I fell in love when i was introduced to it by Daniela Ramirez of Nany's Klozet when she hosted a Jergen's Crema Party (see post here). My favorite scent is the Deep-Conditioning Oatmeal, but to be honest all three of them are so good you will want to swim in it. I am a big advocate of applying cream everyday because it helps your skin keep hydrated, firm and extremely soft. I get compliments all the time due to the softness of my skin, especially my arms.
