HardCandyMain.jpg

This summer is the perfect time to keep your skin looking great at great prices.  Hard Candy has tons of great options available, but I’m totally in love with their glowing skincare items.  Whether you’re looking to illuminate or add a little bronze, Hard Candy has perfect options that won’t break the bank.

HardCandy2.jpg

This Hard Candy Sheer Glow All The Way is fabulous!  This pearly, luminizing highlighter brings radiance to all skin tones.  Apply the cream highlighter to your face and body for a luminous, pearlescent glow.  Every shade in the range is infused with real 24 karat gold, so your look will really sparkle.  The light, airy formula applies evenly to face and body without streaking, and dries onto skin so that it will not rub off on to clothes.  To use, simply apply a desired amount to the high points of your face: cheekbones, brow bone, and top of the nose.  On your body, apply as a highlighter to collarbone and shoulders; or apply as a bronzer to your entire body for a sun kissed glow no matter what season it is.  Glow All the Way is available in sheer, radiant, and tan shades. The Tropical Tan shade is formulated with a sunless self-tanner to gradually give you an all-over, lasting, bronzed glow.  I live in Arizona so during the summer my skin tone gets a few shades darker after spending so much time out at the pool.  I love the variety of shades offered in the Glow All The Way line…I can keep wearing my fave look all year long!

HardCandy1

Glow All The Way is another fabulous line with great results you’ll love at a fraction of the department store prices.  Wear them the same way as the Sheer Glow All The Way for great looking skin all day long.  I really love the Doll Face (pink bottle), it highlights your skin tone with a hint of rosy color to create a beautiful, youthful skin tone.  As a tired, 30something year old mother of 3, I need all the help I can get and Hard Candy is my go-to fix for my tired skin.

Whether you’re looking for great skincare this summer or just plain fabulous eyes, lips, and nails, Hard Candy has everything you need to stay looking great all summer long.

The Cleansing & Exfoliating Cream was fabulous in Coconut Water!  I loved the velvety texture and how pleasant the scent was.  It was light and fresh while leaving my skin soothed and hydrated.  The Charcoal Cleansing & Exfoliating Cream is perfect for cleansing and detoxifying pores.  I noticed a reduction in blackheads and my pores appeared to be smaller in visibility…what woman doesn’t want that?

SephoraVDay7.jpg

The Charcoal Micellar Cleansing Water is another great way to help purify your skin.  Pull out all the impurities and see that beautiful, natural skin underneath glow with purity.  The Coconut Water Micellar Cleansing Milk is oh-so-soothing to use!  I have uneven skintone and the Coconut Water Micellar Cleansing Milk seemed to help even my complexion.  I love the fresh feeling I have after using it too!  Both of these micellar cleansers are rinse free so you can just apply and move on with your day.
