It means today is my July Favorites post!
I've been recently trying out lots of new products and have been
So pleased the with results, that they've made it to my July Favorites :)
Retro Creams & Perfume Shea Butter Cream in Chocolate Coconut: So lately I've been on a spontaneous hunt for a great hand cream. I tried a few but was never satisfied. Then I came across this little wonder on Etsy. Its by Retro Creams & Perfume (visit her here!) and it is in the scent Milk Chocolate Coconut. This is such a luxurious cream, very thick and moisturizing. It's hand made and free of parabens, phtalates, and harmful chemicals. Also the scent is to die for. She has hundreds of wonderful and unique scents to choose from as well. I've already sent her my second order! I also love supporting small businesses so please check her out!
Pulanna Bio Gold Pearl Cream: I just love this. I bought this at Marshalls for $10.00 and it is so amazing. First of all, look how gorgeous it is. Yes, that's the cream that looks like little pearls! It comes with a small spoon to scoop out the cream, and you apply it all over your face. It is very lightweight, but it is a great moisturizer and helped brighten my skin alot.
Sebastian Whipped Creme: This is the first Sebastian product I've ever tried, and I'm very impressed! I apply this to damp, towel dried hair. It comes out looking exactly like Whipped cream that you would have on your desert, except this is for your hair! It lightly conditions the hair while also giving a tiny bit of hold. I put this in the night before I straighten my hair and it leaves it soft, silky, and frizz free!
Maybelline Super Stay Makeup: As I mentioned in my empties post, I picked this up as a replacement for my Revlon Colorstay foundation, and I'm so glad I did. The coverage is medium but buildable. It dries to a dewy finish, which I always set with powder. I wouldn't say this lasts 24 hours like the pacakge suggests, but it does last through a hot workday, which is good enough for me. The only complaint I have about this foundation is that it doesn't include a pump, and is a bit annoying to get out of the bottle.
Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips in Wakiki Strip: I adore this as a highlighting bronzer. I use a matte bronzer all over my face and then use this on my cheeks. Its a gorgeous peachy/bronze, so it's even usable on light skin tones like mine. This isn't an all over bronzer because it is too shimmery to use everywhere but looks great right on the cheekbones for a sunkissed look.
