Hello Darlings back with my latest thing! August has been a crazy month. Work has been crazy and classes started back up again. It has been a whirlwind! We all know what time it is though! It’s monthly favorites time! I have a few products that I have been in love with this month! So we are going to dive right in!
The first thing I have been loving this month is coconut oil. This has become a staple in my skin care routine. I use this to remove all my makeup at night. It is the first step in my skin care routine. I love coconut oil because it really breaks down your makeup. I take the tiniest amount and rub it together in my hands to warm it up then I apply it all over my face. Now this is important to remember. I do not use this as a cleanser. You need to cleanse your face after this step or your pores will become clogged. I simply use the oil the break down all the makeup I have on. I love this because it is gentle on my skin and it last forever. I’m not going broke buying makeup removers from the store.
My next August favorite is a shampoo that I have fallen in love with. It is from the brand Unwash. I use their anti-residue shampoo. Their products are all about giving you a deep clean without stripping your hair of its natural oils. I only wash my hair about 2 to 3 times a week. (yes I still shower everyday I just don’t wash my hair.) This shampoo is not meant for everyday use. I really only use this about once a week to give my hair a really nice deep clean. They do tell you on the bottle that you need to use a generous amount and they are not lying. To get a really good lather you have to use a lot. I am okay with that though because I don’t use it everyday. This Shampoo also smells amazing! After I am done using this my hair feels so clean but still really silky smooth.
Next up is something from the brand Beauty Counter… I had always heard great things about this brand. They are all about using safe natural products. My cousin sells this and reached out to me asking if I would like to try something! So I said sure!! I tried the Number 3 Balancing facial oil. I have been loving this! Since using this product my facial redness has decreased and I wake up with brighter healthier looking skin!! The only con to this product is the smell. It is pretty strong and not my favorite scent in the world! Other than that I have been loving it. I am going to link Brooke in this if anyone is interested in trying some of their products!
Last but certainly not least is a new lipstick! The Maybelline Lust for Blush matte lipstick! It is the perfect pink shade. These lipsticks glide onto your lips and are so comfortable to wear all day! I was really shocked by the staying the power of these lipsticks. They pretty much last me all day. This has become my new go to everyday shade!
That wraps up my August favorites! I hope you all enjoyed.. don’t forget to follow before you leave! Also let me know what your favorites have been for the month!
Until my next latest thing-Laura.
