Summer #VitaBeauty Refresh with The Vitamin Shoppe

Vitamin Shoppe

I love starting a new season because it gives me an excuse to update my wardrobe. Like we transition out our last season fashions, we should revamp our beauty routines!

Since the cooler months can wreck havoc on our hair, skin and nails – summer is a great time to refresh, renew and rejuvenate from the inside out.

Celebrate Smooth Moments This Summer with Veet Hair Removal

[Disclosure: Compensation was provided by Veet via Mode Media.]


Flip flops? Check. Pool toys? Check. Smooth, sexy legs? Check!

I am so thrilled to announce that I’ve partnered with Veet to be a Smooth Brand Ambassador for summer! Veet’s hair removal solutions are the perfect essentials to quickly and easily get rid of unwanted hair.

My legs have been in hiding since I moved to New York, but it’s finally time to let them out! I’m ready to make a smooth move and add some Veet to my life.




I’ve been using the Veet Hair Removal Gel Cream and I’m loving it so far! This extremely effective solution for touchably smooth skin lasts for up to twice as long as shaving.

It also keeps legs softer and more hydrated than traditional hair removal methods. The secret ingredient?  Veet’s essential oils. I’m a huge proponent of utilizing essential oils for skincare, so I was thrilled to learn that it’s included in this stellar ingredient list. Unlike shaving that can sometimes dry the delicate surface of your skin, this formula from Veet contains other goodies that can help restore skin’s hydration levels as well. The formula is designed to work close to the root of the hair, causing your hair to take noticeably longer to grow back. This means your skin stays smoother for longer, too! In addition to the formula’s enriched blend of essential oils, it’s also paired with a velvet rose fragrance that leaves a delicate scent on the skin.

Can’t wait to see where my smooth legs take me this summer! Stay tuned for more about the summer-perfect products from Veet as well as my warm weather skincare tips!
