I originally wasn't planning on doing a July favorites post, mainly because i haven't really been wearing a lot of makeup & also because i haven't bought any new products in the entire month of July...crazy to think about, but yeah - i'm absolutely broke! The times i have worn makeup in the month of July, i usually kept it simple or tried out new things - eg. different color eyeliners, different cheek colors, etc.
I have also been focusing more on taking care of skin this month, as the summer weather has really put a strain on it! So my July favorites consist of one hair product, a few skin products, and just two makeup items! I still hope you ladies enjoy this post :)
Dove Heat Defense Therapy Conditioner ♥
Whenever i blow-dry or straighten my hair (which admittedly, isn't too often in the summer!), i like to protect my hair from the heat as much as possible - starting in the shower. I don't use this conditioner daily as it can cause buildup if used too frequently, but i be sure to use it whenever i know i'm going to use heat on my hair. It makes my hair super soft & easy to work with!
I think vaseline (or at least petroleum jelly) is a staple in any household, you can use it for so many things! Every summer, my feet suffer from dryness & even cracking (sorry if you were eating!), so using the right products to help heal them is really important. Before i go to bed, i slather this stuff on the bottoms of my feet, put on socks, dream for a bit, wake up, & viola! My feet feel moisturized & the cracks in my feet have started to heal. This stuff is a lifesaver.
L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Tinted Self-Tanning Lotion in "Deep Natural Tan" ♥
I already did a post kind of reviewing this product (link here), so i won't go too in depth - but i've really been loving this stuff lately. I don't like exposing my skin to too much sun (i sound like a hermit!), as it is soo damaging, but i still like to have a tan. This product is a solution to that dilemma! I think i look so much healthier & even thinner with a tan, so i really love this product.
Lush "Honey, I Washed the Kids" Soap ♥
This soap is one of the more popular soaps at Lush and gets a lot of hype on YouTube & in the blogging community, and i would say it definitely lives up to the hype. It smells delicious - i actually may need restraint from eating it! - it is also quite moisturizing, and creates a gorgeous lather! Definitely a product to try out :)
Clinique High Impact Mascara in Black ♥
I did a review on this product a long, long time ago, and i still love it. I would be my favorite mascara i've ever tried if it wasn't flaky, but i digress! The effect this mascara has on my lashes is amazing! It makes them look thick & lengthens them a bit, it looks stunning! It's also quite dark black, which is always a plus in my book.
Clinique Blush in "Iced Lotus" ♥
I swear this product has been in all of my monthly favorites ever, but i honestly love this stuff! It's the prettiest color blush i own. I stopped using this for a while, but i've rediscovered it & have fallen for it once more. It's very pretty & gives a very lovely, fresh look to the cheeks :)
What have you ladies been loving this month? :)
