This month is clearly really skincare heavy with only one makeup item - I've said it multiple times, I'm just not wearing as much makeup right now so it makes sense that my favourites are mainly skincare (and even more specifically SPFs because that's what I've been using or trying the most of right now! 

Here's a closer look at the products I've been loving this month:

July 2020 - Monthly Favourites!

Too Faced Papaya Pop Eye Shadow Palette ~ $42.00 CAN. Indulge in this fresh and juicy eye shadow palette full of vibrant, high-intensity shades with extreme colour payoff. Buttery-soft textures offer ultra-pigmented, one-swipe color in a bold, revolutionary formula you have to feel to believe. It's like the ultimate tropical vacation in a palette. 

This palette was a bit of a pain in the butt in Canada to get (you can read about here on my detailed review post here). I love the palettes in the Tutti Frutti collection and this one was a good addition - it's a beautiful colour range and I love the mix of mattes, shimmers and there is even a duochrome! The shadows are good quality and this smells fruity and delicious! 

July 2020 - Monthly Favourites!

La Roche-Posay Anthelios Ultra-Fluid Face Sunscreen Lotion SPF50 ~ $29.00 CAN. High UVA-UVB protection with an invisible finish. A unique combination of invisible yet ultra-resistant protection developed for sensitive skin.

I have been hearing rave reviews about this face sunscreen for years and I finally picked it up to try it and I can say now that I get it! This is so lightweight and works amazing - I've been using it on so many sunny days outside all day. It works well on it's own and under makeup and it's just so easy to use and works - I love a strong SPF for my face. This is a small bottle, but it really works! 

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Face Mist Sunscreen Spray SPF 50 ~ $17.49 CAN. This sheer sunscreen spray provides effective broad spectrum defense against skin-aging UVA rays and skin-burning UVB rays. Featuring an oxybenzone-free formula, this SPF 50 facial sunscreen mist has a lightweight, refreshing formula for a weightless, clean feel and an oil-free, invisible finish that does not leave a heavy residue. The face sunscreen spray is non-comedogenic, so it won't clog pores, and water resistant for up to 40 minutes. 

I bought this on a whim because I thought I needed a high SPF sunscreen that was easy to apply for reapplication - the spray nozzle is great! And, this is everything I wanted it to be - it's sheer, lightweight and comfortable. I typically used the La Roche-Posay first and then bring this one out with me wherever I'm going to reapply - I have used it alone and it was great too - it's a great formula and easy to bring along and use anywhere. It leaves no white cast and I've reapplied over a light face of makeup (concealers, powder, eye makeup) and it didn't wreck anything!  

July 2020 - Monthly Favourites!

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist ~ $37.00 CAN. An ultra-fine, hydrating mist formulated with a juicy blend of 84-percent watermelon, hyaluronic acid, and hibiscus to refresh skin and enhance makeup.

I'm a fan of the Glow Recipe watermelon line, so it comes as no surprise that I love this mist too. I was actually a little iffy when I first time it a few months ago because it seemed almost too dewy on me; but, I'm thinking I just wasn't shaking it up well enough or it was just the first bits because now this is so lovely and this is the finest mist I've ever used! 
This mist is meant to soften, hydrate and prep skin for optimal makeup application and I always use my mists after toner and before moisturizer and this one has been really lovely! 

John Masters Organics Antioxidant Cream with Rose & Apricot ~ $41.00 CAN. John Masters Organics' Rose & Apricot Antioxidant Day Creme is a lightweight, botanical-rich formula that delivers a potent dose of revitalizing nutrients to skin without feeling heavy. This decadent cream is infused with apricot, borage and rose oils that douse skin with soothing vitamins A, C & E and essential fatty acids for a hydrated, nourished complexion.

This is a really nice moisturizer! I have actually been using it for months and thought the whole time that it was good, but I didn't realize how good it was until I started using something else and it was a noticeable difference from how my skin was while I was using this moisturizer!  
It absorbs well in to the skin and is really nourishing and I have used it as both a day cream and a night cream! My skin is combo, so it can tend to be oilier in the warmer months, so that is when this works better for me at nighttime. Rose really agrees with my skin and keeps it looking healthy and hydrated!
