Happy [almost] July! I can’t believe another month has come and gone. Blame it on summer, but I am all about the glowy, dewy skin right now so I went through a ton of products to help me achieve that look. Some worked, some didn’t. Read on to see what I loved and didn’t love this month:
SKIN / BODY
Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum – I shared that I had used a different Vitamin C serum in this post, and I had so much about DE that I wanted to give it a go. It was a pretty penny and it did definitely do amazing things for my skin. However, the smell is SO strong [you’ll see that in it’s reviews on Sephora, too] that I just couldn’t deal. Unfortunately I’ll be going back to my other one.
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Towelettes – I picked up these towelettes to try and while they do have a ton of essence [which I love], they have a strong alcohol scent [which I did not love]. I’ll be going back to my holy-grail.
Yes to Vitamin C Mask – I picked this up on a whim from Target and I really liked it! It wasn’t mind blowing but I do feel it gave me a good glow.
Ole Henriksen Pore Balance Scrub – I really liked this scrub. It smelled really fresh and I did see a small difference in my pores since using this. I used this once or twice a week so this little bottle lasted a good bit.
Body Shop Coconut Hand Cream – I loveeeeee these hand creams. I keep one in my desk, one in my diaper bag, one in my purse, and one in my car. I will definitely repurchase this.
Body Shop Shea Shower Cream + Wild Argan Body Scrub – I adored this combo. I’d mix some of the cream with a bit of the scrub and not only did it smell amazing but it both moisturized and exfoliated my skin. I highly recommend both of these.
VII Code Eye Cream c/o – I had this sent to me and I was super excited to try it out! It was very thick and hydrating so I used it before bed and my eyes did appear healthy and not puffy when I woke up in the morning. Definitely check them out if you like eye creams.
NYX Dewy Finish Mist – I loved this spray. NYX and L’Oreal have the best setting sprays, in my opinion, and I truly love this one. For the price, I will repurchase.
L’Oreal Voluminous Primer – If you watch any of my GRWM on my Insta-stories, you’ll see me use this every.time. I cannot do my makeup with it. It makes such a difference in your lashes. I HIGHLY recommend this.
Mommy’s Bliss Gripe Water – You know the drill with this. This is a must-have product for Dillon and I will repurchase this again.
Babyganic Foaming Hand Sanitizer – I’ve used one of these up before and I love having these for the diaper bag. It smells SO good and Dillon loves the foamy texture which makes it easier to apply on his hands while we’re out.
Elizabeth & James Nirvana Dry Shampoo – I got suckered into this in the Sephora checkout line and I thought it was fine. It left a pretty big white cast but it smells SO good. I used it sparingly and it was good but I won’t repurchase for the price.
Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair Mask – I got this as a sample and really loved it. My hair was so soft. This from the brand is my holy-grail product and I may purchase the full size of this to accompany it in the future.
