July Beauty FavoritesIt's that time of the month again! I rounded up some products that I couldn't get enough of this past month. Some months go by where I discover some old favorites, but this month I discovered a lot of new favorites that I'm sure I'll continue loving throughout the year. I didn't want to make this post massive, so I picked most of the standout products!
Jergens Natural Glow, Jergens is a bit orange, but Nature's Glow is very golden bronze. I love it! I've been using it regularly on my body. The best part is the price. It's only around $13-14 for a 16 oz bottle.
Shiseido Mascara Base for around 3 years now, but was curious to try something different. I've been using this every day and I think I'm a new convert! I'll do a comparison post, but so far I can tell that the Dior base is much more gentle on my lashes. It really works great for adding an extra oomph to my lashes. It makes them look slightly longer, and much more volumized.
MAC Lightsweep Shaping PRO Powder - $16.50Absolutely love using this as a subtle highlighting powder for under my eyes. I usually set my under eye concealer with Ben Nye Powder and then apply Lightsweep over top to brighten up the area. It's a light peach with a hint of pink, so it's very ideal for the undereyes to counteract purple/blue shadows. I also apply it down the bridge of my nose and contour the sides of my nose for a slimmer effect. I love the subtleness of the powder and that it doesn't have that powdery setting powder look. It has a silky appearance on the skin and it has a bit of a pearly sheen that makes it catch the perfect amount of light. If you're really into contouring and highlighting, this is a great product. Definitely one of my favorites that I will always use.
Rosehip Oil - $7Love, love, love Rosehip oil and have only recently been using it regularly. I hardly ever use a night cream anymore - just a few drops of rose hip oil massaged into my face and by the morning my skin is plump and glowing.
Shaveworks The Cool Fix - $11I like using this to battle that dreaded day 3 razor burn after using a 5-blade razor on the va-jay-jay. Lol!!! Seriously though, if used consistently (meaning before it happens) on the bikini line it keeps me from wanting to rip my skin off days later. Tendskin is a little more effective for me, but it's dries my skin out from the high alcohol content. I like the gel formula of The Cool Fix and the fact that it does have a refreshing, cooling sensation. I also find it to be a great product to use post waxing to calm the skin and reduce in-growns. I like using it on my upper lip and/or brows after I've finished tweezing those pesky hairs to minimize bumps.
Well, that's it for my July favorites. I hope I didn't miss anything!
