Current Beauty Favorites-End of Spring 2013

With summer coming up and the weather becoming nicer here, I wanted to show you some of my favorite products i've been using to prep my skin for the summer time as well as my current go-to products.

I'll start with these items first.

Weleda Skin Food : I have been using this item for my mainly dry patches on my fave and around my neck area. I love how thick and creamy it is and the smell of it. Also, I love that it doesn't burn my skin like some other citrus-smelling lotions do, especially if I put it over ezcema spots.
Revlon Colorstay Nail Polish in Marmalade: I've still been obsessed with orange nail polish and find myself always going back to this color. It's just bright, easy to apply and lasts on my nails.
Ralph Lauren-Ralph Rollerball Perfume: This has been one of my go-to scents. To me, it reminds me of warm summer nights (on my skin it turns muskier as opposed to staying crisp and fresh). The rollerball makes it easy to carry around with me as well.

Now I'll continue with the main items I use for my skin.
Kracie Triple Essence Cream: I love this cream and this is my 3rd tub of this within 3 years and I use it almost daily. A little goes a long way and it lasts and lasts. I use this as a facial cream mainly in the morning (sometimes at night, it just depends) and my skin just soaks it up and loves it. It keeps it hydrated and also seems to make the overall complexion look brighter.
Jergens Natural Glow Express in Med-Tan: I have been using this stuff to get back some color onto my skin. This express kind works fast and leaves me with a nice tan color. I use it at least twice a week initially to get the color started and maintain it with the regular Jergens natural glow. The only down side is if you don't spread evenly, the color can be darker in other areas so you have to be very careful. Also if you don't wash your hands or wipe them (especially inside between the fingers) you will notice the color staying there.
LUSH Dream Cream: I like to use this product on my legs after I shave (if i'm not using any Jergens) as well as on my back, neck and facial areas. I don't use this daily, but I use it when I feel like my skin is a little irritated or I'm in need of extra moisture.

Lastly, I will discuss my favorite lippies !

Revlon's Colorburst Lip Butter in Juicy Papaya: I love this color and how simple it is to put on without having to be extra careful. The color is a nice coral and isn't too thick for everyday. It has the right amount of moisture and pigmentation for a grab-and-go item. I highly recommend getting this color if you're in need of a subtle coral/orangey color.
Maybelline Baby Lips in Twinkle: I like carrying this around in my pocket or my purse for an everyday chapstick. The smell is nice, the packaging is cute, and it leaves my lips nice and smooth on days I don't need want any color.
Korres Lip Butter in Jasmine: I like using this in the mornings right after I wash my face and brush my teeth to prep my lips and also right before bedtime. I love the smell and feeling of these and how it makes my lips feel afterwards. Also, if you wanted a nude color, layering this on wll leave your lips a nice nude pink color too.

That's it for my current favorites. What have you been using to prep yourself for summer or just your current favorites??!
