August 2019 - Monthly Favourites!

I know I've been saying this a lot; but, can you believe that August is nearly over?! I feel like I blinked and Summer was gone! It was a great Summer - it was just really, really busy. I'm looking forward to things slowing down soon!

Anyways, today's post is all about things I was loving in August and it's clearly got a heavy banana focus with a couple of makeup products and a lovely scent! 

Here's a closer look at the top 5 products I'm loving this month:

August 2019 - Monthly Favourites!

The Body Shop Banana Truly Nourishing Shampoo ~ $11.00 CAN for 250 ml (also $6.00 CAN for 60 ml and $16.00 CAN for 400 ml). This truly nourishing, cruelty-free shampoo gently cleanses your hair and drenches it in an uplifting, tropical scent. Enriched with deliciously ripe Community Trade organic banana puree from Ecuador.

The Body Shop Banana Truly Nourishing Conditioner ~ $11.00 CAN for 250 ml (also $6.00 CAN for 60 ml). Enriched with real banana puree, this creamy conditioner is irresistible. Use after shampoo for moisturized, tangle-free, healthy looking hair.

These are so amazing - I love the shampoo and conditioner so much! I reviewed a whole lot of The Body Shop banana products on a big post here and these were a standout for sure! These smell amazing and the formula works so well for me - I can actually get two days without using dry shampoo (which is rather unheard of for my hair!) 
They are 100% vegetarian, made with community trade bananas, formulated without silicones, and made for dry to normal hair - and, they are so lovely! 

August 2019 - Monthly Favourites!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Gel in Dark Brown ~ $12.00 CAN for mini size shown here (full size is $24.00 CAN). A highly-pigmented brow gel with a long-lasting, waterproof formula for creating fuller-looking, defined brows—like Dipbrow Pomade in a gel form.

This was a pretty instant love affair with this brow gel - it just adds so much colour and hold to my brows. It's a product that you actually only need the tiniest amount of product to use properly! It's a super long wearing formula and pretty weather proof! I posted a full review and look with the Dipbrow Gel here

Coola SPF 30 Makeup Setting Spray ~ $49.00 CAN. A makeup setting spray with 70+ percent certified organic ingredients to reduce shine, refresh UV protection, and keep makeup looking fresh all day. 

I really like the idea of a setting spray with SPF in it - I mean, really, how do you reapply SPF when you are wearing a face full of makeup?! I know this isn't going to apply as much SPF that you need in an initial application, but it's better than nothing and I'm not applying a liquid SPF when I'm wearing makeup! This does say not to apply directly to the face, but I do and it's fine, it just smells a little alcoholy. But, it does work well as setting and keeping makeup in place and I love added SPF in it!

August 2019 - Monthly Favourites!

The Body Shop Banana Body Yogurt ~ $14.95 CAN. Don't wait to get dressed after moisturising with The Body Shop's fabulously fragrant Special Edition Banana Body Yogurt. This lightweight gel-cream absorbs instantly, even on damp skin. Enriched with Community Trade organic banana puree made from bananas that won't sell to the food industry (They Body Shop doesn't care if they're the 'wrong' shape or size!), this fruity vegan formula provides skin with 48hr moisture.

I have so many body lotions in my collection, so it really needs to take an amazing formula to be a total  stand out to me, and this is! This lovely body yogurt is limited edition and I'm so sad that this scent will be discontinued, but I will purchase this in other scents for sure! This smells delightfully like the old banana medicine you got as a kid. But this is a super lightweight formula that leaves the skin super hydrated - I love it! 

Body Fantasies LoveStruck Fragrance Body Spray ~ $8.99 CAN. A fresh, clean and flirty scent leaving your skin sexy to the touch and totally kissable! A very sexy blend of cherry blossom, peach, and sensual musks.

Okay, this is possibly one of the most nostalgic scents when I sprayed this! Does anyone remember the Victoria's Secret Love Spell body spray?! Before Victoria's Secret was ever in Canada (think like 16 years ago when I was still in High School), I used to have a friend that would travel and stock up on that scent and we all got so excited when we could use it. This smells just like that and it's still a lovely scent! It's floral, but fruity and fresh - I'm zero good at describing scents, but I love it! And, I love body sprays as they are so easy and light to wear!
