Healthy Summer Glow All Year Round!


Since summer is officially over, fall is here and winter is just around the corner I thought I would share some of my best tips on having a healthy summer glow all year!

Firstly everyone needs a good tan glow everyday of the year and my personal favorite is Cocoa Brown by Melissa Carter 1 Hour Tan Mouse. First I exfoliate with the Cocoa Brown Tough Stuff exfoliator apply the 1 Hour Tan with the Applicator Mit and an hour later shower the excess product off. If your looking for something dark you can leave it on longer or apply it for a few days in a row but for me to get a natural glow I do it for the hour, wash it off and it gives me the perfect amount of color.

Another thing I’ve found to keep me in the summer mood and keep that glow going is to keep my favorite summer foods in my diet. I love pineapple and watermelon so I keep buying those until they are completely out of season. Of course I keep eating ice cream specifically Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, another thing I love for dessert during summer is frozen grapes so I keep eating those too! If you would like some more inspiration with some recipes and healthy foods, I recently was checking out ALOHA and saw that they have TONS of healthy recipes to make and enjoy so be sure to check them out! 

And last but not least BRONZER! My current favorites are Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer and The Body Shop’s Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder. Because if your too lazy to self tan or continue eating like its summer, bronzer will never let you down. If your feeling fancy you can try a subtle contour or just use bronzer like you use blush with just a simple sweep on your cheeks.

And that my friends is how I keep my summer glow and summer feeling going all year round.

How do you keep your summer glow going all year long?

All Beauty Water*

Each bottle of All Beauty Water has zero calories, zero sugar, is all natural, non-GMO, kosher, vegan, gluten-free, and is specially formulated to help nourish and hydrate skin and create beauty from within.

So to help me do a review for All Beauty Water I set up a mini taste test for my family and myself. I put each flavor in cups and we tried each flavor without knowing what they were. First was the Pomegranate Rose next was Strawberry Açai and we finished with Cucumber Aloe. None of the flavors are my cup of tea and I personally wouldn’t drink them on a regular basis but my dad and sister absolutely loved the Pomegranate Rose All Beauty Water! I will say while the tastes weren’t for me none of the flavors had a weird aftertaste like some beauty teas do. And all of the flavors had lightness about them which makes you feel like your just drinking flavored water. I also love that you can get flavor without carbonation, calories or sugar. And of course its natural, GMO free, kosher, vegan and gluten free which in my eyes is a win win!

Overall if you like any of flavor combinations listed above I would HIGHLY recommend you try out All Beauty Water. They are the perfect alternative to water and soda. If your bored of plain water or if your trying to not drink as much soda as you normally do or of course if your just wanting to try something new you need All Beauty Water in your life!

Currently All Beauty Water is sold in select New York stores

Pyore Skincare*

I received samples of the Jojoba Rose Cell Renewing Exfoliator and Refreshing Coconut Facial Scrub to try out and review for you guys so keep reading to find out what I thought!

What they say: "Pyore (pronounced “pure”) was created with your complete wellbeing in mind. We use only the finest, purest, plant-based oils and skin nutrients like jojoba, moringa and argan oils, green tea and coconut water in our natural products to cleanse, moisturize and exfoliate your skin while helping to stave off the signs of aging, safely and naturally."

The Refreshing Coconut Facial Scrub had excellent exfoliating properties but amazingly enough was extremely gentle. For me this is very rare, I never have found an exfoliator that actually feels gentle. It feels so smooth going on and feels like a cleanser but in reality it’s a facial scrub. My only other comment about this was that I wish it smelt more like coconut because yes, I’m obsessed with everything coconut. But ill let it slide since it’s a really great product and it works!
The Jojoba Rose Cell Renewing Exfoliator smelt like rose soap to me and had a more slippery consistency which I feel like would be amazing for exfoliating sensitive skin. It also didn’t feel like an exfoliator but worked like one. You feel as if you’re just washing your face but its really doing much more then that. Both the Refreshing Coconut Facial Scrub and the Jojoba Rose Cell Renewing Exfoliator ultimately left my skin feeling silky smooth and soft and I think you for sure need if not one, both of these in your life!

Results: Both of these products did work amazing and I would highly recommend the Jojoba Rose Cell Renewing Exfoliator to people specifically with oily, combination or sensitive skin and also highly recommend the Refreshing Coconut Facial Scrub to anyone!

Everyday Minerals*

I received the Everyday Minerals Define The Cat Eye Collection Kit to review, which will be out around the holidays! This is an exclusive Keeping Up With Coco sneak peak so enjoy!

What they say: “Everyday Minerals is simply driven by the goal to help women feel confident and naturally beautiful. We create handmade products that contain only the finest essential ingredients to inspire women through artistic and creative expression, every day. Our easily wearable products are made from the highest quality at a reasonable price.”

The Define Cat Eye Collection includes a mini double-ended bamboo brush, walking after midnight mineral eyeliner, illuminator shimmer eye shadow & in the garden shimmer eye shadow. The kit comes with instructions on how you can use the products to create a look or you can of course try something on your own. I did use the directions and the look was exactly what they said it was going to be, “bold, look at me, smoky & pretty eyes”. I found the walking after midnight mineral eyeliner to be my favorite from the collection! Let me tell you, for powdered and mineral eyeliner the pigmentation, wear and silkiness was unreal. The double-ended brush actually was all I used and it all worked out really nicely. The only downside was the fall out but you have to expect that with all loose shadow, but with just a little makeup remover or even a baby wipe its gone in seconds! I would overall say if your looking for either a holiday present for the makeup lover in your life or yourself this is a hidden gem of Everyday Minerals.


The kit will be out around the holidays and will be found at
