August Beauty Favorites
I wanted to start sharing my favorite beauty products—and create a new blog series—since I get a lot of questions via social media! I’ve been using most of these for a while, but since this is my first ‘favorites’ post, I thought I’d incorporate them. I’ve been dying to share these (I actually have been meaning to for weeks hence the August title—whoops!), so let’s get started:
100 Percent Pure Pomegranate Oil Lipstick - POPPY
This is a fruit-pigmented-pomegranate-oil-anti-aging lipstick (phew, tongue twister!). I received this in a gift bag from an event and couldn’t be more obsessed.
If you follow me on Snapchat, you probably saw me try this. I immediately fell in love with the color, Poppy! It’s the perfect light lip stain, but can also be built up to give you a full-on lip. I top mine with Baby Lips Chapstick (favorite of all time) to add a little shine since the nature of this lippie is very matte. P.S. It’s not drying and it smells really nice!
Nubian Heritage Patchouli & Buriti 24 Hour Deodorant
I discovered this deodorant recently and LOVE IT. It's light, refreshing, & rose-scented and goes on cool to the touch and lasts all day. My boyfriend is also hooked on the African Black soap one and when he comes home from work, I can still smell it on him. haha! It’s made out of all natural and organic ingredients so it’s gentle enough for sensitive skin and doesn’t mess with your body. Highly recommend this!
OK, not really sure what I would have done without these tanning towelettes this summer! I took them everywhere and they’ve been a lifesaver, especially when traveling. I’d never heard of tanning towelettes until I tried these, but they are one of my FAVORITE ways to self-tan now.
I use them before shoots, for fun outdoor fitness events, swimming, etc. They give me THE PERFECT natural color each time. Each sheet is individually packaged, so I open it up completely and cut it in half. I’ll use one half for my body and the other half for my face. I’ve never had any streaks using these because I swipe them in circular motions. If I use one before bed, I wake up with an ideal tan and it doesn't come off on my clothes or sheets. There’s also NO showering required after using one which is super easy. I can go on and on about this product, and I’ve stocked up for the winter because I know I'll be needing it! Let me know if you guys try this and love it too.
I’ve also been using these all summer long and am now on my second bottle of each. The smell of lavender and tea tree is amazing, and happen to be my favorite essential oils! The shampoo is great because it’s not drying on my colored hair, and a little conditioner goes a long way. It’s really moisturizing and makes my hair silky smooth. If you’re looking for an upgrade from drug store shampoo, I totally recommend this duo.
I got hooked on this after the first time using it. The next morning my skin looked FLAWLESS. My pores looked smaller and I had a bright complexion. It goes on smooth and it’s been my go-to serum at night.
The first time I used this product was when I was traveling. It was the perfect size to fit in my toiletry bag, but I’ve since squeezed out every ounce of it! It’s probiotic-rich and gentle on the skin. I need to get more because it’s become my everyday cleanser!
Chanel No.5 L’Eau Perfume
Mmmm! I received this beautiful perfume a while back, and was so excited to try it after hearing some of my favorite bloggers talking about the new fresh scent. I absolutely adore it. It’s a luxurious citrus scent with notes of honey, orange, and velvety flower petals. It’s always what I reach for before brunch and date night. You have to smell it next time you get the chance :)!
Last but certainly not least! Where have you been all my liiiiife?! This deep conditioner is my current fav because it doesn’t weigh my hair down. The other day on Snapchat I showed how FRIZZY, ratchet, and tangly the ends of my hair were just from day-to-day styling. After using this that night, my hair DRAMATICALLY improved. My air-dryed hair was moisturized, soft, and felt completely different the next morning Since then, I’ve been using it once a week as part of my hair routine. It also smells sooo yummy. I definitely recommend this as a lil’ extra R&R to maintain healthy hair!
Let me know if you have any holy grail beauty products you swear by, or if you try any of my favorites above!
