Facing the Summer with Skincare from CVS

Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper. Opinions are 100% my own.

I love the summer sun, long beach days and late night barbecues. The summer wreaks havoc on my skin, though. All the sunscreen, sweat and extra makeup at night takes its toll.

I just came back from a few days away at the beach. After indulging in a lot of outdoor activities, top priority is rethinking how I care for my face. I am adding in a few new skincare products from CVS and getting into a routine to keep looking fresh and flawless to face the rest of the summer.

No matter what your summer brings, you’ll be ready to face it beautifully with all the skincare offerings at CVS. And with Buy 1 Get 1 40% OFF on select skincare happening at CVS now, you can stock up on them all.

You know I am always shopping at CVS and browsing the beauty aisles; I love picking out new beauty products. I was so excited to discover this adorable Simple Micellar Cleansing Water Sachet. If you have followed me for a while, you know that I am a big fan of the Simple Skincare brand and you’ve seen me talk about them often. When I saw the little Micellar Cleansing Water Sachet while shopping at CVS, I had to have it… well, a few of them.

I am already a user of the Simple Micellar Cleansing Water and the on-the-go sachet in the super cute, flexible and ultra-light packaging spoke to me. Knowing that I would want to take this along in my purse, beach bag and gym bag made this portable skincare product a must-have.

I love the Simple Micellar Cleansing Water for not only its cleansing properties, but for its hydrating boosting properties as well. With all of the outdoor activities happening and my skin feeling dehydrated, I can use all the extra hydration that I can get.

Extra hydration is key for summer skincare due to all the increased activities and time spent outdoors. When I saw the Simple Micellar Cleansing Water Sachet and the Simple Hydrating Light Moisturizer Sachet, I knew they would be essential for my purse, beach bag and gym bag. They are so gentle, light, and refreshing — just what my skin needs during the summertime. I will be pulling out the Micellar Cleansing Water Sachet to cleanse and refresh right after boot camp and then finishing off with the Hydrating Light Moisturizer. I wish I found these before I went to the beach over the weekend.

If you have never used a micellar water, you need to try this. The Simple Micellar Cleansing Water cleanses and attracts dirt and impurities like a magnet, all without irritating the skin. It contains micelles which are like clever cleansing bubbles which gently lift out make-up, dirt and impurities. It cleanses, unclogs pores, refreshes the skin and instantly boosts skins hydration by 90%. I apply a small amount to a cotton round, swipe the soaked cotton round over my face and voila — clean, fresh, hydrated skin! Buy it here.

CVS has so many other skincare products that help to keep my face fresh and flawless this summer, too. I like to keep products on hand like PONDS fragrance-free Cold Cream for removing longwear makeup and the new St. Ives Grapefruit Face Mist for an instant boost of hydration throughout the day.

I am stocking up at CVS with the Buy 1 Get 1 40% OFF (with card) on select St. Ives, Simple, Ponds, and Noxzema products. The offer is going on now through 7/20. Click here to save.
