Thanks for stopping by, it's berry nice to see you here! (Har har har.) But in all seriousness, one trend that always seems to endure in beauty and fashion is berries: Berry colors, berry scents, berry ingredients in skincare. (I also like eating berries, but that's a subject for another day.) Today I thought I'd share a few of my most-loved berry-themed products—everything from scrumptious-smelling scrubs to luscious, long-lasting lip color. And if you've been meaning to bolster your own berry beauty collection, you're in luck—AZO is giving away three gift baskets filled with berry-themed beauty goodies from Sephora! More on that at the end of the post. But for now I present to you:
1. Skinfood Black Sugar Strawberry Wash Off Mask
Like sugar scrub masks? Like the smell of strawberry jam? Well what if I told you that you could scrub your face with a strawberry jam-like substance without all the muss and fuss? Skinfood's Black Sugar Strawberry Wash Off Mask is just that: The skin-sloughing power of sugar in a deliciously fruity-smelling package. It's very affordable too—you can get it for less than $10 now.
2. Bite Beauty Luminous Crème Lipstick Duo (Lingonberry)
I picked up Bite Beauty's limited edition Tangerine/Lingonberry lipstick duo a few months back and it's one of my favorite lipsticks. Well, what's left of it now, anyway. Lingonberry is a vivid rosy berry color... long-lasting too. Perfect for wearing on leisurely summer trips to the U-pick farm. (What, you don't make yourself up for that?)
3. Kicho Cosmetics Sheep Oil Cream with Lanolin & 8 Berry Complex
I reviewed this facial cream a while back. The short version if you missed it: Kicho's Sheep Oil Cream is a rich, hydrating cream that provides a slight cooling effect—very nice for tired, dry skin. While sheep oil (lanolin) may the star of the show, it also contains a whole bunch of berry extracts (Sea Buckthorn Berries, Blueberry, Goji berry, Strawberry, Açaí palm, Raspberry, Black Mulberry, Cranberry Fruit). Antioxidants ahoy-hoy!
4. Strawberry Foam Rollers (sold by a variety of brands)
Foam rollers are useful if you want to do an overnight curl because they're much less stabby than their hard plastic counterparts. And if you're going to do up your hair in rollers, why not choose ones shaped like big, puffy strawberries? The strawberry shape doesn't enhance their function in any way, but it does make a rather tedious process a heck of a lot cuter.
5. Essie Nail Polish in Very Cranberry
Very Cranberry is one of those rare polishes that seems to suit most skin tones. It's akin to classic reds, but with a little bit of bite... just like real cranberries.
Speaking of all things cranberry, there's a new berry-licious supplement in town: AZO Cranberry Gummies.
A lot of you are probably familiar with AZO and their various urinary health products. Not the most glamorous subject ever, but AZO has managed to make maintaining a healthy urinary tract a little bit more fun with their adorable berry-shaped chewables. Every gummy is made with a super-concentrated cranberry powder called Pacran®, which helps flush the urinary tract to maintain cleanliness.* Just two AZO Cranberry Gummies are equivalent to one 10 ounce glass of cranberry juice**—but with fewer calories and much more portability.
If you usually have trouble handling the natural sourness of cranberries, you're in luck—AZO Cranberry Gummies have a much milder mixed berry taste. The power of cranberry without the tongue-twisting tartness.
And if that's not enough berry talk for you, AZO is giving away prize packages filled with luxury berry-themed beauty goodies and Sephora gift cards—wheeeeee! All you need to do to enter is visit their Facebook page and fill out the entry form.
Do you use cranberry juice or supplements in your regular routine? What's your favorite berry-colored or berry-scented beauty product?
