September Beauty Essentials

September Beauty Buy Recommendations by Fashionable Hostess

As summer comes to a close, I am not only rotating my closet but also rotating my beauty regimen. Here is what I am loving for September:

Laura Mercier Almond Coconut Soufflé Body Crème

  • What it is: An ultrawhipped body cream in the alluring scent of almond coconut.
  • What it does: This fragrant body cream provides all-day moisture protection without being heavy or greasy. Inspired by Laura Mercier’s French upbringing, the Almond Coconut Body & Bath Collection features playful yet sophisticated formulas inspired by the aura and aroma of the French pâtisserie.

Darphin Ideal Resource Face Cream

  • What it is: A true skin-restoration cream delicately scented with white flowers.
  • What it is formulated to do: At the heart of this deliciously rich cream resides a trio of flowers acting in synergy to help rebuild the vital resources of younger-looking skin.  Their combined properties have the power to help restore the skin’s natural collagen, revive complexion luminosity and reactivate natural cell renewal. 

Peter Thomas Roth Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask

  • What it is: A cooling, soothing gel mask that helps counteract visible signs of aging for younger-looking skin.
  • What it is formulated to do: With state-of-the-art breakthrough stem cell technology, rose stem cells are blended with rose extracts to help counteract visible signs of aging, including the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, dehydration, dullness, and sagging. This powerful Gel Mask strengthens and tones, revealing silky soft, radiant, beautiful, and youthful-looking skin.

Elizabeth & James Nirvana White Perfume

  • What it is: The newest perfume launched by style icons Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

Strawberry Water

Strawberry Water 11

Happy {almost} Labor Day!

Summer may unofficially be over after this weekend but that doesn’t mean the taste of summer has to dissipate all at once. I love to keep that freshness alive well into Fall by serving ‘fruit water’ at my lunch and dinner parties in a gorgeous glass pitcher. Today I chopped up organic strawberries that I picked up from the Union Square Greenmarket but other options include pineapple, blueberries, lemon, cucumber or even mint. For glasses, I love mason jars; and the finishing touch is to take the smallest strawberries from your pack and use them as garnish on the rims {see how I also used mason jars for my Yogurt Parfait recipe}. The finished product is a colorful and happy drink for adults and kids!

Wishing you a fabulous long weekend!
