PS: Here's What's Saving My Skin in This Heat ($10 and Under!)

My WiFi is working for a second so I want to quickly tell you what's been absolutely saving my skin in this intense heat this week:

The 0.6 oz. Tarte Maracuja Oil is on the Sephora sale page right now for $10 (regularly $17). My bottle above is actually 0.5 oz. and it's been lasting me quite a while since you literally use three drops for your entire face. It has been a miracle for me in this heat and has kept my face from turning to leather while I sleep. 

The First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream is $6.50 for the 1.0 oz. packet on the Sephora site. You can see my full review of it here. Seriously, it zaps my weird dry patches on my legs and arms that I always seem to get in extreme heat, and it zaps them almost instantly. And they stay zapped. I love this product so much I want to marry it. 

I would link to both products on the Sephora site for you, but my WiFi is about to go bye bye again and besides, I KNOW you know your way around the Sephora site. 

OK, bye for real this time. (If you have no idea what I'm talking about, see the post right before this one.) 

PS: I purchased both of these products with my own money. Forgot to include my usual disclosure. Sorry about that! 


  1. The 1.7 oz bottle is $25 at Ulta for the 21 days of beauty sale.

  2. I got lucky and got full sized of these products... The oil in a Sephora multi product sampler, and a big jar of that creme in one of the first Allure boxes I ordered...I was hoarding the creme for winters...

  3. I have one of those small bottles of Tarte maracuja oil that came for free with something else, but I generally never apply oil to my face due to the fact that the US would invade it if it were any oilier. Weird thing is it does this in the hot summer and cold winter, but spring and fall are usually ok.

  4. I've been recently using my Maracuja oil (I also got the tiny size) but I've been patting it into my skin (a la, Korean toner/emulsion/lotion style) and found I only really need two drops instead of the recommended amount. It works great as a 'sealer' to keep my skin moisturized overnight.
