Here are the top 5 products I've been loving in July:

My beauty routine has been pretty "low maintenance" this Summer, so I love products that are multi-purpose or work great but are simple and easy to use! There is a little bit of everything in here this month - skincare, makeup, hair and nails! 

Here is a closer look at the products:

Monthly Beauty Favourites - July 2021

La Roche-Posay Anthelios Mineral Tinted Ultra-Fluid Face Sunscreen Lotion SPF50 For Sensitive Skin ~ $34.00 CAN. 100% mineral sunscreen + universal shade for an instant natural glow. Broad spectrum UVA/UVB high protection. Quick absorbing. Natural glow. Fragrance-free. Paraben-free. Non-comedogenic. Water-resistant.

I have already raved about the normal La Roche-Posay sunscreen - it made my Monthly Favourites last Summer, and it is great. But, when I saw this in a tinted version, I was so excited! In Summer I typically reach for a tinted moisturizer, so what a perfect combo and it lived up to my expectations. The tint works well for my skin tone (I wish it was expanded for every one to experience - they do have another one that looks more like makeup with a larger range!) This applied easier, wore well all day and didn't budge, plus provided great sun coverage. Love! 

Tok Beauty Lip Tonic in Inspire ~ $26.99 CAN. This invigorating formula will give your lips a feeling of youthful wellness. Filled with plant-based ingredients like Avocado Oil to nourish and moisturize your lips, Hyaluronic Acid to lock in moisture to your lips, Lysine for the formation of collagen and plant-based peptides for a natural plumping looking effect without the irritation, your lips will look and feel amazing.

I just shared a post swatching all the Tok Beauty lip tonics and trying out the mascara and I absolutely love this shade - it is just a pinky mauve that I wore every day in July and will continue to do so. It is a little glossy, but not sticky, it is hydrating and feels great on the lips! 

Monthly Beauty Favourites - July 2021

Holo Taco polish - Peach Tea ~ $14.00 US. This shade is packed with linear holographic pigments with rainbows that sparkle through a warm light peach-toned base. This tea is too holo to spill.

This polish is stunning - no other way to put it, I cannot rave about the Holo Taco holographic polishes enough! You can see this used in a Manicure Monday earlier this month with one of my favourite manis I've done in a while! The formula is thin, but opaque in two coats still and didn't chip on me for almost two weeks! So good! 

Moyra Matte Top Coat ~ $7.99 US. All the way from Budapest, Hungary, the matte top coat from Moyra turns any glossy nail color into a modern matte finish.  It is the perfect choice for those who wish to follow this trend in nail decoration. 

Okay, I have also raved about Moyra top coats before - their nail art top coat is the best top coat I've ever used! But, I thought I'd jump on the matte nails trend - late, I know! I have actually tried another matte top coat years ago that was crap so it turned me off for a while, but this one is amazing! I actually cannot believe how matte it goes - so good. It is slow to try so it is a formula you have to be careful after using for a while, but totally worth it. If you saw my matte mani earlier this month, then you can see how gorgeous this is! 

Monthly Beauty Favourites - July 2021

L'Oreal Paris 8-second Wonder Water Lamellar Rinse-Out ~ $13.99 CAN. A new generation of hair treatment. Our liquid formula disperses instantly on wet hair. It works in 8 seconds and visibly transforms hair from the first use. With moisturizing agents and amino acids, our formula targets damaged areas of hair, forming thin layers called lamellas that smooth the hair’s surface with no weigh down.

I saw this when my blogger friend Jayne at Cosmetic Proof raved about it - I basically ordered three the next day, because Jayne has amazing hair and I need mine to look like hers! The lamellar water targets damage and this is meant to detangle, make hair look shinier and healthy, smoother and easy to manage. I personally use this at least once per week and leave it on longer than 8 seconds, my hair is certainly smoother, softer and looks healthier! I've really been enjoying this! 

What have you been loving this month?!
