♥ July Favorites ♥
In the month of July, I really enjoyed using these products.
♥ Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion For Face/Body Very Water Resistant Sunscreen SPF 55 PA +++ -- This products has definitely made its appearance on my monthly favorites posts a few times already, and it is well deserved for the title, because it has been my favorite sunscreen for a couple of years now. I especially love using it for the summer reason because it doesn't make my face greasy, has a light formulation that is easy to apply, and offers excellent sun protection. When I go to Hawaii in two months, I definitely need to repurchase a big bottle to take along with me!
♥ Korres Body Milk in Bitter Almond -- Korres bath and body products are my favorite to use. While you probably have heard me mention Korres body butter a few times in my blog (review here), this is my first time using Body Milk. Body milk has a more running consistency compared to the body butters, and also doesn't feel greasy when applied. Which makes it a perfect product for use during the hot summer. I love the pump bottle as well, it pumps out the perfect amount of products each time. The scent is also a big plus for me, bitter almond scent reminds me of those almond jelly that I love! Definitely one of my favorite Korres scents!
♥ ELF Zip Zapper -- This little product took me by surprise. When I spotted it at Target on the dollar ELF shelf, I decided to take it home and give it a try because it was only a buck, so what more can I lose? I didn't expect much from it, but when the pimple on my cheek shrunk its size by half over night and started to dry up, I was excited. It contains Salicylic Acid, Tea Tree Oil, Witch Hazel and Camphor -- all excellent skin calming and acne fighting ingredients. The product has a small plastic roller ball that dispenses the clean liquidy product. Once on skin, it dries pretty quickly. I love how easy and convenient it is to use. I just bought two more backups, so I can take one with me wherever I go and use it when I feel the pimple first start to emerge. For such an inexpensive product that works, I highly recommend you to give it a try!
♥ Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in No. 5 (Peach) -- I went through a little phase of Aqua Cream frenzy last month when the product first became available on Sephora, and I never regretted the purchases ever since! Aqua Creams are the best makeup product to use for the summer days when you are all greasy and sweaty from spending time outdoors, because they truly stay put without budging. I purchased two eye colors, and two cheek colors. No. 5 is one of the cheek colors -- It is a peachy pink color with small gold flecks inside. The cream is super pigmented, so just a tiny dab on the finger is enough for one cheek. If you want your blush color to stay put for a long time, definitely give Aqua Creams a try. I apply the cream blush on my cheeks before patting on finishing powder, as the powder would actually help to tone down the pigmentation a little bit so I don't end up with too much colors on my cheeks. The end result is a truly glow within flash of color that looks so pretty! I also use...
♥ Sephora Blush Me! in peche tendre no. 4 -- ...to set my blush and give it more of a glow. It is a matte warm light pink shade that I fell in love with last month. This blush was from the love pack that Edna just recently sent me :) Thanks so much love!!!
♥ ELF Concealer Pencil & Brush -- I have this concealer in the medium shade (light), and it was the perfect shade for my skin tone. This creamy pencil actually contains salicylic acid and tea tree oil to help combat acne -- I love a product that has two purposes in one! The cap of the pencil side contains a pencil sharper, how convenient is that! On the other side of the product is a teklon brush that helps to blend in the concealer. This slim pencil is perfect for taking along on the go. It offers really nice converge, and the pencil makes it easy to dot directly onto the pimple. I definitely need to purchase back-ups of this product! I am also interested in trying the fair shade and see how it works on my under eye.
