Cetaphil Cleansing Cloths
I was so excited to see this product on the shelves at my latest Walgreens visit. These cleansing cloths are so gentle on your skin and remove make-up very well. They contain plenty of moisture on each cloth to do the trick and don’t have any noticeable fragrance. An added bonus is that they did not irritate my sensitive skin!

Essie Naughty Nautical 
This color is the best shade of turquoise for summer!  It is definitely a winner!

Glide Threader Floss
I have used this product in the past and am so glad I stumbled upon it again.  As a dentist, I am extremely OCD about getting my flossing in each day and this product is perfect for anyone with a bonded retainer (me!), bridges, and braces.  Definitely give it a try as it is so much easier than threading your floss through one of those pesky floss threaders!  

Wild Basil and Lime Softsoap
I am absolutely loving this product.  I stumbled upon it when I was getting ready to sell my house and wanted a more attractive soap dispenser for my guest bath that did not break the budget.  This soap is from the Softsoap Decor collection.  The container is really cute, looks higher end, and the soap smells amazing and does not overly dry your skin.  I am really loving this find and plan to try some other fragrances from this collection!

I hope you all are having a great week!  Do you have any other drugstore finds that you are loving?

Neutral Summer nail polish

Hope everyone is having a good weekend! I just finished painting my toenails (OPI Bubble Bath) and I thought I would tell ya’ll about what colors I have been gravitating towards this summer. I usually like brighter colors on my nails in the summer, but this year, I have been gravitating towards neutrals. Here are my favorite summer neutral polishes. What I love about these colors is how flattering they are on all skin tones.

1. Essie “Topless and Barefoot“. This color is a soft nude with light pink undertones. It is such a pretty natural nude color.

2. Essie “Ballet Slipper”. This color is a pale pink that is almost sheer. I find the color very similar to OPI bubble bath (so I would buy one or the other since they are so similar). It is like a clear nail polish with just the slightest hint of pink. What I like about it, is that the color is slightly buildable, so you will see alittle more of the pink with a second or even third coat.

3. Essie “Fiji“. This color is an opaque creamy pale pink that really looks great with a tan. The best way I can describe this color is like pink white-out. I absolutely love it. Opaque polishes can be tricky for me to apply and I find that if I am not careful I end up with brush strokes. You definitely need 2 coats (sometimes even a third) to get full coverage and minimal brush strokes.

4. OPI “Bubble bath“. This color is a pale sheer pink. Like I mentioned earlier, I find the color to be very similar to Essie “Ballet slipper” but I find this one has even more of a subtle shade of pink and leans more towards being a clear polish. If you are looking for something that will make your nails shine and give the slightest hint of color than this is the perfect polish.

Hope you enjoyed seeing my favorite polishes of this summer. Let me know if you have a neutral polish you love that I need to try. XOXO -B
