August 2017 - Monthly Favorites!

Here are my 5 favorite goodies from August:

Vichy Mineral 89 Fortifying Daily Skin Booster ~ $39.95. Give your skin a daily boost of strength. Mineral 89 is a non-greasy gel formula combining all the power of high-dose Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water with natural origin hyaluronic acid to strengthen skin's barrier function. Drop after drop and day after day, a daily dose of strength to boost skin's health and resistance. 

I love this booster so much - I use it in place of a serum and honestly, I don't think my skin has looked healthier in months! This keeps my skin moisturized and glowing all the time - I now use it day and night because it just works so well! If you are looking for something new foe strong, hydrated skin, I would HIGHLY recommend this! You can see my full review here if you are interested!

Nivea NIVEA 2-in-1 Moisturizing Primer ~ $10.95. Keep normal skin feeling hydrated and protected. This versatile, lightweight 2-in-1 moisturizer and primer is the perfect non-greasy base for every look. If you’re on the lookout for stunning, even-looking skin that leaves your skin feeling moisturized and ready for the next steps in your beauty routine, this long-lasting formula is just what you’re looking for.

I have reviewed and demonstrated this product in a review - you can check it out here! This is great because in the Summer I don't want a ton of layers on my face even when I am doing my makeup and because this is a 2-in-1 product, it is so light! It offers enough hydration for a moisturizer but helps that makeup hold well too! I only wish this was in a squeeze tube!

The Face Shop Fresh Cleansing Wipes ~ $15.00. These embossed fresh cleansing wipes deeply cleanse the pores, leaving the skin clean and soothed without tightness.

There is nothing better than finding a cleansing wipe that checks all the boxes - saturated, removes eye makeup, gentle, use 1 for the whole face - need I go on? I rarely find a wipe that I think works really well and that I would repurchase. These are my new fav by far - you can see my thoughts here (and on the whole Chia Seed line from TheFaceShop). 

Lush Scrubee Body Butter ~ $7.95. This happy little bee looks innocent enough, but it means business when it comes to buffing your skin smooth. We've combined scrubby ground almonds and coconut shell with softening honey, cocoa and shea butter in alternating exfoliating and moisturizing stripes for the smoothest skin. Save the Scrubees!

I know I just reviewed this on Skincare Sunday, but I couldn't not include this - a scrub and a body butter all in one! A shower body butter where I don't have to use a moisturizer after (coming from someone with dry skin), and a it smells amazing and looks adorable! Huge win for me! I will be constantly repurchasing this! 

Too Faced Sweet Peach Creamy Peach Oil Lip Gloss in "Papa Don't Peach" ~ $24.00. A whipped peach lip oil with the shine of a gloss and the moisture of a lip balm. 

This lip gloss is amazing - peachy, soft, hydrating, smells amazing, and nice and light on the lips! It has been my go-to all Summer! You can check it out on my 5-minute go-to makeup look and I reviewed it here too! It's too hot for a full lipstick in the Summer, so this has been perfect for finishing a look without being heavy! 

What have you been loving in August?
